My First Love

HEART OF LOVE

first, let me apologize for being absent for so long…sometimes life doesn’t go the way we expect and kind of runs away from you…(i’m trying to put a leash on it) ūüėČ

i will say, being gone can cause a lot of deep thinking, thinking that is good for the soul and the heart.

i started thinking if i could’ve changed things in my life, (if i made better choices)? which got me wondering, how many things (maybe) were not my choices? all to find, no matter what, he was there with me through them all and turned them into good as i see how much my experiences were meant for today, possibly as help for others who cross my path today…

as this thought process went on, it brought me back to when i met my first love…little did i know at the time he would become the greatest, most valuable person ever to cross my path…though it was a sweet meeting, no bells, and whistles, quiet and gentle, i had no idea the great impact he would have on my life.

i met him at a young age, not knowing he would change my life forever. and as the years have gone by i realize more and more how much he’s been right by my side, no matter the trials,¬† losses, pain or whatever came my way, he and he alone has always had my back…

i can say with everything in me, he is and always will be my first love. my love for him grows deeper every day and i will forever be grateful to have him walking right beside me for the rest of my days…he has blessed me with an earthly love (whom i adore with everything in me), beautiful children and grandchildren, and i’m given the freedom to love and spoil for the rest of my days here on earth!

i could go on and on and on, but i’ll save that for another time, and for the sake of time¬†i will sum it up simply…

His name is Jesus

peace out…

WHO ARE YOU…

Image may contain: text

SO MANY TIMES I THINK OF PEOPLE WHO AREN’T SURE OF WHO THEY ARE AND ARE UNHAPPY ABOUT THE WAY THEY LOOK (you know, not pretty enough, not tall enough, not handsome enough, not thin enough, blah blah blah)…DON’T YOU KNOW HOW PRECIOUS YOU ARE IN GOD’S SIGHT? DON’T YOU KNOW YOU’RE THE APPLE OF HIS EYE?
DON’T LET OTHER’S DETERMINE WHO YOU ARE OR PUT A LABEL ON YOU…YOU ARE A SPECIAL CREATION, AN ORIGINAL CREATED BY GOD’S OWN HANDS!
IMAGINE, THERE’S ONLY ONE OF YOU…ONLY ONE!!!!
HOW MUCH MORE ORIGINAL IS THAT?
WHEN HE CREATED YOU HE THOUGHT ABOUT EVERY LITTLE DETAIL RIGHT DOWN TO THE COLOR OF YOUR HAIR, YOUR EYES, YOUR SKIN…HE KNEW EXACTLY WHO HE NEEDED YOU TO BECOME TO WALK OUT YOUR DESTINY HERE ON EARTH…WOW!!!! THAT’S AMAZING…
SO PLEASE DON’T EVER QUESTION WHO YOU ARE AND COMPLAIN THAT YOU’RE TOO SHORT OR TALL (you get the picture)…BE THANKFUL FOR THE PERFECT WAY HE MADE YOU …SEE YOURSELF THROUGH HIS EYES….WHEN HE SEES US HE SEES PERFECTION IN EVERY WAY…THAT SHOULD BE MORE THAN ENOUGH FOR US ALL…LET’S THANK HIM FOR WHO WE ARE AND FOR THE REASON HE MADE US AS HE DID…

LEARN TO LOVE YOURSELF THE WAY HE LOVES YOU.

peace out…

BURN BABY BURN

STAY CONNECTED WITH THOSE WHO ARE LIKE-MINDED...

IF THERE’S ANYTHING THAT WILL PUT YOUR FIRE OUT, IT’S BEING CONNECTED WITH THE WRONG PEOPLE…

here’s a quick prayer to keep us on target …
FATHER, I PRAY THAT WE STAY CONNECTED WITH THE PEOPLE WHO ON FIRE FOR YOU…KEEP US AWARE OF THOSE WHO HELP US KEEP THE FIRE BURNING.
HOLY SPIRIT, BE THE ALARM INSIDE OF US THAT LET’S US KNOW IF OUR FIRE IS GOING DIM SO WE CAN RECONNECT WITH THOSE WHO BURN FOR YOU.
LET OUR FIRE NEVER DIE, KEEP US AWARE OF THE FLAME THAT BURNS STRONG AND BRINGS LIGHT WHEREVER WE GO…
LET OUR FIRE BURN SO BRIGHT THAT OTHERS WILL BE DRAWN INTO IT AND WE BECOME A BONFIRE FOR YOU ALL BURNING TOGETHER …
LET US BECOME A WILDFIRE FOR YOU AND CONSUME ALL THE DARKNESS!
KEEP US CONNECTED AND TURN UP THE WIND SO WE CAN BE BLOWN IN THE DIRECTION YOU WANT US TO GO!! LORD, WE THANK YOU FOR YOUR FIRE!!!   

peace out…FIRE...STAY ON FIRE FOR GOD BY BEING WITH PEOPLE WHO BURN FOR HIM

BE YOUtiful…

FYI…NEVER WISH TO BE LIKE SOMEONE ELSE…WHEN YOU DESIRE TO BE LIKE SOMEONE ELSE, THERE’S A HIDDEN AGENDA THAT YOU CAN’T SEE…IT’S A SET UP!!! THE ENEMY WANTS YOU TO DESIRE TO BE LIKE SOMEONE ELSE AND THEN WHEN YOU DO, HE HANDS YOU YOUR DESIRE…BUT WHAT YOU DON’T SEE IS, WHEN YOU DO THAT YOU ARE TAKING ON THE WHOLE PERSON WITH ALL THE SPIRITS AT WORK IN THEM…YOU WILL GET ALL THE SERIOUS STUFF THEY DEAL WITH AS WELL…SOOOOOO BE CAUTIOUS AND DON’T DESIRE TO BE LIKE ANYONE BUT CHRIST ALONE!!! HE’S THE ONLY ONE WHO HAS IT ALL TOGETHER…EVERYONE ELSE CARRIES BAGGAGE AND BELIEVE ME, YOU WILL GET THEIR BAGGAGE ALONG WITH THEIR GIFTS…SOOOO THINK BEFORE YOU WISH FOR SOMETHING…ASK TO BE THE PERSON YOU WERE CREATED TO BE AND FALL IN LOVE WITH THAT PERSON!!! FROM GOD’S POINT OF VIEW YOU’RE PERFECT AND WONDERFULLY MADE IN HIS IMAGE…THAT SHOULD BE SUFFICIENT¬†¬†¬†BEYOUTIFUL

peace out

this…

there’s a place deep inside that continues to cry out for more…it moans, groans and whines when it’s empty and alone…what is that place?¬† why does it hurt so much when it’s not fulfilled? truth be told…if we try to fill it with all the earthly things, we never have enough…it’s like the person who needs their next fix, their high, their drink..whatever it is, it’s never enough…

but i know something that will fix every craving, every symptom, every need and you’ll never find it in this world…only the supernatural can fill it…and it’s no Ouija board or fortune teller that can tell you what you’re missing…there’s no life in the things of this world, and yet, we seem to keep chasing after those things…why??? what stirs us or drives us to feel we need them? i don’t have all the answers, but i know this…only He can satisfy that thirst, that void, that emptiness…only He can deliver the goods and gives free refills… only HIM…no other can substitute His goodness and fill us with joy, peace and love…there’s nothing like His arms, NOTHING…NADA…when all else fails you, climb back up in His arms and sit on His lap and let Him fill all those needs/wants/desires…He’s got all we need and never runs dry…EVER…take a drink from His well…you’ll never thirst again…THE LORD IS NEAR THOSE WHO CALL ON HIM

peace out…
