To the Lover of My Heart

To the Lover of My Heart

You are My GOD.

Dear Lover of my heart,

You have been there since the day I opened my weary eyes

With every shaky breath I take

Your love has shown no disguise

In my weakest and lowest of days

I cry out in agony

Then I see your face.

I see you in the people serving me food with a gentle smile

I see you in the classrooms with wide eyed children as they freak out over bugs

I see you in the eyes of family members I have not seen in a while

I see you in my two year old best friend who gives me endless hugs

I see you in my friends' face as they light up with joy

Telling me about the things they are doing in their life

I see you.

I see you in the happiest of times


I see you in the darkest

I see you when I am up at 3 am wondering if I am even good enough

I see you when I have been made a fool by people who I thought were friends

I see you when I do not believe I deserve to be loved

I saw you when I tried to make my end.


You were not the bad.

I was in pain

In a constant of sad

Trying to feel a wholeness I could not seem to attain

Alone, afraid, ashamed.

But you lit your match

My cold heart started to feel whole

I saw hope, I felt comfort, I felt peace

You renewed my soul

And all that heartache I could finally release.

I was:

Broken, depressed, suicidal, angry, isolated, and dirty

I am:

Healed, joyful, revived, peaceful, connected, and clean


Your love is written throughout my story

The tribulations have been overcome

By you weaving in your glory

I never believed I would make it this far

But that was not your plan

You had plans to prosper

And in a moment you lent out your hand

I grabbed it and will never let go

Because as I have walked this Earth

Your love remains as so

So lover of my heart,

I will praise you till my dying breath

I will give you my all

Even when I have nothing left

In your name I will call

No matter the dark

I see your light

When pain tries to leave is mark

You turn the mud into white


And my one true love.

I love you and praise you.

You are my GOD.

I pray that as I show others who I used to be

In it they can find you

And feel your glory.

12 Bible Verses For Faith In Hard Times

Remind yourself that God is always with you.

Lately, I have felt lost at what God wants for my life. Ever since I've come back to UWG everything has been horrible. It seems that I can't catch a break. I'm trying my best to focus on school, work, and extracurricular activities. But it's hard when I'm having issues with my apartment/roommates and knowing my family back home is struggling and needs many prayers. All, I keep thinking is maybe Carrollton isn't where I belong anymore. I've asked God if He can guide me in the right direction. Below, I have found Bible verses that have helped get me through these rough, past couple of weeks.

We Have Chains, But Jesus Can Break Them

Jesus came to call and love the sinners, not the righteous.


After viewing the music video "Chain Breaker" by Zach Williams yesterday, I began to think about the meaning behind the words being sung. I suppose we all do that subconsciously, for when we like the message of a song, then we can fully appreciate the song in its entirety. We hear a song, we like it and we find our identity behind a song. In the music video, Zach Williams is playing "Chain Breaker" to a whole room full of prison inmates.

Seeing Zach play to this room of inmates made me have a deeper meaning with our faith in God.

No, we are not convicted felons, but each and every person has their struggles, their "chains" so to speak. These chains can be different things like depression or even drug and alcohol addiction.

Because we have these chains, we are as bound and hopeless like people who are in prison, unless we turn to God for hope and strength.

While I have never been to prison, I know people who are or were in prison. They have described it to be a terrible place. Things happen in prison that are hard to take in, like "shivving" (stabbing someone with a shiv, a knife made from things like toothbrushes), solitary confinement (being thrown into a dark padded room for days and weeks at a time, with no one to talk to) and sometimes even group fights (people taking turns beating you up).

Prison inmates need God's love and mercy like we need it.

No sin is too severe for the Lord to forgive. In God's eyes, we are no better than people who are in prison. God loves us all the same. In the music video, I saw prison inmates shouting and worshipping the Lord, hands extended up in the air in worship.

In the Bible, Jesus Christ Our Lord called Matthew to be a disciple of Him. When the Pharisees (people who were steadfast and unwavering in the Mosaic law) saw that Jesus called Matthew, a tax collector (tax collectors were highly despised at the time and was known to forcibly take money from people) and was accepting of Matthew eating with Him, they criticized Jesus for it. Jesus heard this and replied "Those who are well, have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. I came not to call the righteous, but sinners." (Mark 2:17)

Jesus came to heal and love the broken, the people without hope, the people who were looked down upon by the Pharisees.

Reading about Jesus healing and loving people who were sinners (like prostitutes) gives me hope that He can love me. I view myself as no better than people who are in prison or people who like to do evil. We all are sinners. We all will have to answer to God for what we have done in this life. My answer will be "I entrust my heart and my soul to Jesus Christ, My Lord."
