Deuteronomy 6:5

Where Is The Love?

I can hear, with my ear the word love being tossed to and fro, this love that I can hear, so clear, is not seen though, I’ve looked high and I’ve looked low. Where is it?

Where Is The Love?

I’m talking genuine, agape, this love that’s felt and seen through what we do, not just heard in the words that we may say, when it seems to be no other, this is the love that says; together, we “CAN” make a way, but where is it?

Where Is The Love?

What I see, are hearts that are cold and emty, hearts that are bound but beleive that their free, selfish hearts, unforgiving hearts, hearts that are void of empathy, so I ask;

Where Is The Love?

Love was sent to us from the Heavens above, and this took place over 2,000 years ago, yet, on today we act as if we just don’t know, I’ve searched high, I’ve searched low, where did it go?

Where Is The Love?

I know that it’s still here because Jesus is Love, and He left a remnent before ascending into the Heavens above, but I can’t find it so I cry out;

Where Is The Love?

The word of God tells us that this world is to see “Him” through the way that we as beleivers are to love one another, then the word of God ask a question: how can we love God whom we have not seen, if we can’t love those who we do see, our sister and our brother? I ask again;

Where Is The Love?

This question is not so much for those outside of the body of Christ, because they simly don’t know, but this question is for those of us who are within, for we are supoosed to show, it was once here, but where did it go?

Where Is The Love?

Through faith in Christ I know that this genuine, selfless, agape love will reveal it’s pretty face again real soon, then this entire corupt and loveless world will begin to dance to a brand new “LOVE” tune. Until then I’ll continue crying out to my Lord above, asking;

Where Is The Love?

Profound Revelation!!! (Don’t Be Deceived By The Ambiance Of Darkness)

I am a 2nd shifter, and as far back as I can remember the majority of my writing has been done late at night. I have always loved the night. I’m able to fully function in the night hours. So when I write, late night, I prefer the ambiance of minimal light.

Well, this worked fine until a few weeks ago when my eyes would begin to water, the words on the page would become blurred and I would get a slight headache (evidence of getting older :)). My very fist thought was that I would have to change my writing schedule from the p.m. to the a.m.. Then the Holy Spirit spoke to me gently, saying, if you gave yourself more light by turning on the bigger ceiling light then you’ll be O.K. (duuugh, that should have been my first thought).

Nevertheless, I turned on the bigger brighter light and haven’t had a problem since, but the Holy Spirit continued dealing with me in regard to this Light and darkness thing. He used my preference of the ambiance that is ushered in by using minimal light to reveal to me other areas of my life where I preferred the ambiance of the darkness rather than the truth of the Light.

I was then led by the Holy Spirit to 1 John 1:5 (amp)

And this is the message [the message of promise] which we have heard from Him and now are reporting to you: God is Light, and there is no darkness in Him at all [no, not in any way];

then I was led to John 3:19 (K.J.V.)

And this is the condemnation, that Light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than Light, because their deeds were evil.

Yes, I admit, I do like the ambiance of a dimly lit, romantic setting, but through this experience the Holy Spirit brought back to my memory, that in Heaven, we will live, move and have our being in the fullness of the Light of ¬†God’s countenance, 24/7, where there is absolutely no darkness at all, and NO SIN. Now what greater ambiance and romance is there than this?

My Prayer:

Father God, I thank you for this revelation on Light and darkness in which you have graciously given to me. Father, forgive me for those dark areas of my life in which I love rather than Light. Father, give me the willingness and ability, through the power of the Holy Spirit which dwell within me to walk out of these dark areas straight into your Marvelous Light; in Jesus Mighty name I pray, AMEN…

Next Chapter!!!

This present chapter of my life has been very long, and full of pain…strong winds and heavy rain…it was only the grace of my God that kept me from going insane.

Finally, I can see relief…but not without one last stagger backwards caused by a blow from the murderer, the destroyer, the thief.

The enemy may think that he has won this war…ohhhh, but little does he know, there’s so much more…in store.

Yeah, I’m walking away naked and bare…but with victory, because I’m walking away, and in the face of Jesus I continue to stare.

All that the enemy has stolen from me in this chapter he can surly have, because my future, he can’t touch…what my God has revealed to me about Himself in this chapter has been much…I pray for Jesus to reveal Himself “MIGHTILY” to “ALL” those who think He is just a crutch.

Though I would not want to go through this again, I thank God for allowing this season…I’ve learned so much already, but only time will reveal the full purpose and reason.

Despite the pain and confusion in this chapter there’s still so much that I’ve been working toward…one foot in front the the other is the only way to move forward.

Old things has passed away, behold, all things becoming new…it’s to my destiny and God’s purpose that I vow to remain true.

I won’t be destracted by the enemy, a.k.a.the great destractor…I’m walking out of the old straight into this,

Next Chapter!!!

Against All Odds!!!

The chips were stacked against me…all I had was a cloudy vision of my destiny,

un-educated, and I had no real plan…I even put my faith in me, and in man.

I tried that, and I tried this…now I stand here today…and I say…it was all amiss.

Chasing after successs…while putting my soul in a deeper and deeper mess.

Trying to obtain all the things that this world told me I could…trying to get all that they say I should.

I walked by sight, not by faith…thinking that it was my way that would usher me into that destined place…not knowing that I was getting further and further behind in this race.

I thank my God, because He didn’t allow Jesus to come, “just” for those who have everything together…those who are already standing strong in the midst of the rough weather,

but rather Jesus came to set captives free…those who’s chips are stacked against them, those like me…He came for those who are blind, but really want to see.

My Lord and Savior came for those of us who are fighting;

Against All Odds!!!

If this is you too…don’t be discouraged by your situation; know that God is faithful and true.

My God chooses those of us who are tore-up…from the floor-up so He can get the glory…from our story.

If you’re already a “Made” man…then people will think that it’s all you-your will, your plan.

Nine times out of ten this you won’t deny…because you forget that your blessings come from Him who sits in the Heavens above the sky.

It’s the struggle in the storm of dust…that bring us to the point where we “KNOW” it’s in God that we can trust.

It’s not profitable to despise where you are, or the things that come against you…know that with you…God is not through.

In the word of God He didn’t just use men of high degree…but rather, He used men who were below average, average, or just plain ordinary…like you, and like me.

I encourage you today, don’t get impatient when waiting on the “ONE” True God and turn to other false god’s…”STAND” ¬†knowing that God is preparing you even now to win;

Against All Odds!!!
