Sweet Somethings

bubble

Sweet nothings are like heart-shaped bubbles that float from your heart through the air and pops on your lover’s nose, releasing a fragrant aroma,

They are ebbs that cascade over the cup of your heart from love yearning to be expressed,

They can be shared verbal kisses and caresses which sustain lovers that hunger for one another,

Sweet nothings are like little star stickers that lovers exchange that say, “I think you are fantastic”,

Sweet nothings can really make you feel special,

You know….Sweet nothings really are something!

I believe as love matures, instead of becoming more practical and toned down, it should increase in brilliance, impact, and expression. This doesn’t necessarily mean a huge display, but just the right thing at the right time or something totally unexpected but that hits the heart right were it was needed. I feel in my life at times, the Lord has often blessed me with sweet somethings right when I needed it, in a way that I knew it was only from Him and personal. I could give some examples, but it’s kind of private..you know…between lovers. Yeshua is the greatest Lover of all times. I believe that is what scriptures speak to when it says, “O taste and see that the Lord is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him. ”Psalm34:8. When scriptures profess, “The Lord has appeared of old to me, saying: “Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love; Therefore with lovingkindness I have drawn you.”. Jeremiah 33:3 (NKJV).

I know I started this post talking about lovers sharing sweet nothings, and I ended up talking about the goodness of GOD. It is because nothing or no one frees the heart to love like knowing that you are loved by GOD. The weights and cares of this life tend to smother the flame of love that is meant to warm one another’s heart, but the Love of GOD has a way of lifting those cares so that the flame can get air and burn fervently.

Just like the many sunsets, sunrises, butterflies, and song birds that can go unnoticed by burdened and busy hearts, so can the sweet somethings from your loved ones if you have not given all your cares to GOD. The scriptures say, “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God.” Philippians 4:6 (NKJV),

Wait On The Lord

Can you soundly say of the Creator that set the seasons in their time, and the moon phases in its time, day and night in their time, and even gestation in its time that His timing is off pertaining to circumstances in your life? How can we not trust God’s timing? I declare that I trust God’s timing in every area of my life for His timing is perfect and His timing sustains my life.

“Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart: wait I say, on the Lord.” (Psalm 27:14)

As we wait on the Lord for change to come into our lives we must still live. The charge to be of good courage speaks to this. As we go through trials and tribulations and wait on our deliverance we must still live. We must rise and eat and we must feed others. We must maintain. If we can’t move the line forward, we should still do all we can to ensure that we don’t lose the ground we have won. We must learn how to be strong in the power of HIS might. We must draw strength from our confidence in God’s universal sovereignty and omnipotence in order to stand. As you stand, the Lord will encourage you and when the expectation is fulfilled you will be assured of His love. You will see that your hope was not in vain and that the Lord heard the prayers. Your heart will be strengthened. Your faith will increase. Your testimony will be established unto the Glory of God!

“Hope deferred makes the heart sick but when the desire comes it is a tree of life”

(Proverb 13:12)

Wait I say on the Lord.
