What do you hear?

When you see clear blue skies

Listen to how sweetly a kiskadee sings

Marvel at how lilies toil and spin

Delights in a puppy chasing her tail

Struck in awe at a gorgeousΒ  sunset

That no words can describe it from the alphabet

 

Did you hear the whispered words

on the wind through the tree boughs?

Did you listen closely?

That’s God saying “I love you.”

God’s creation serves as an inspirational driving force when it comes to writing. Lately, I’ve been scribbling down thoughts, ideas, songs, and little poems that come to mind and blessing and thanking God for them. When I was young, I filled books with poems and songs dedicated to Him and I’m happy that I can do this again. This piece was inspired by Psalm 8:3-4, verses that were etched on my heart when I first heard them.

“I love you, too.” πŸ’™

Very Short Story #29

“Would you be scared…” she stops, suddenly hesitating, meekly looking across the table at her coffee companion.

He implored her to go on with his ocean blue eyes. Gathering her courage, and pushing past the lump in her throat, she asks, “Would you be scared if I said that I love you?” She shut her eyes not wanting to see his reaction to her love confession. Because I do… love you, that is.Β Words tumbled and tossed and tangled around each other as they banged against her brain and knocked against her worried heart, but it came to a standstill when warm hands cupped hers.

The gesture gives her the courage to open her eyes, but not to still her wicked fears.

His hands returned to the large cup of java he was using to keep warm rather than to drink from it. The smile on his face was bright. It melted into pure happiness that she promised herself to move mountains if it meant framing the genuine expression on his face for all the lifetimes that they’ll spend together.

He was her moon.

“No,” he replied, blue eyes locked onto hers. “Because, I love you, too.”

All grammatical errors are mine.

*** Thanks for reading this super short. I’m slowly, but surely inching my way back to writing.Β

Devotional Nugget #11: A lesson in restoration

For we are glad when we are weak and you are strong. Your restoration is what we pray for.

2 Corinthians 13:9

2019 flew by so quickly! At the beginning of the year, God provided me with the word “restoration” and He showed me the power of restoration in several areas of my life for NOTHING is too hard for Him. He restored health, family, peace, joy, and even finance! I am very thankful for what He has done and what He is going to do in all departments of my life. Proverbs 18:10 and Psalm 91 are my go-to’s for every situation and I’ll continue to claim God’s promises through them.

Sin corrupts, blinds and cripples us, but God wants to restore us spiritually, mentally, and physically. He wants to give us the gift of peace and joy. He wants our lives to be filled with purpose. Being in a relationship with Him can restore what sin stole for He is our sole source of restoration.

Reflection

God can take something old and make it new and shiny. Nothing is ever too hard for God so don’t give up on praying. Make it a daily routine and trust God.

How MUCH does He LOVE us? πŸ’™

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

John 3:16

Too much!

Excessively!

More than words can say or we can ever comprehend!

God loves us so much that He sent His only Son into this wicked world to be a sacrifice for the salvation of humanity. This self-sacrificial love can explain itself, yet, we still cannot comprehend why or how much He loves us. And we’ll never be able to come to a sufficient or pleasing answer because we’re unworthy.

So why does God love us? Simple. He is love (1 John 4:8,16). The essence of His being is love and because He loves, we can love for He first loved us. He loves the sinner (but hates the sin) hence why we can come to Him as we are, so He can forgive us of rebelling against Him and make us clean.

His love is not limited for it has no beginning or end.

Reflect on His love today and thank Him for loving you.
