Being grateful is key to being great!
Sometimes you just have to fly.
Some time ago my fellow writer friend, Godswill of Christ A Poet, and I were discussing our love for Jesus. He asked if I’d like to write about it with him, the result of that collaboration is below. We called it Love Like No Other for two reasons: 1. His love is like no other and 2. He loves us like no other can. Without further ado, let me share this love with you:
It’s 4am in the morning
And one thing keeps me smiling
Feels like four Amens won’t do
When I hear of how much you love Jesus too
See there’s no other love quite like this one
He’s not just anyone, but The One
The Trinity: Father, Spirit, Son
This love renders one undone
Perfect present cleansing is this love
For me and you and 7 trillion others more
No truer song has ever been sung
Behold what manner of love the father has given unto us
This kind of love fills any void and colors in all grays
It’s how I draw each and every breath of my praise
This kind of love is untamed and unrestrained
Yes this love has a name, name above all names
Love so amazing (Amazon) it literally speaks life
Love so transforming; it’s 100% successful every time
Love so fulfilling it overflows: rivers of life
Love so immortal He never dies
If this love were a star, it would be a galaxy
If it were a drop, it would be the deep blue sea
If it were a minute, it would be eternity
It is something and simultaneously everything
Isn’t it odd that this Love is one so even
Isn’t it unforgivable the much we’ve been forgiven
Isn’t it inhuman his love for us humans
Isn’t it deep the height of this love from God for man
A free gift that paid the world’s most expensive debt
Blood-wash that leaves one white as snow
Removing the stains of sin, hurt, pain and regret
Priceless heirloom which on us was bestowed
Take a mirror and marvel: Love at work
Take a bible and Learn: Love’s architecture
Never was there any thing surer
Than this love of which we are born
The melody of my heartbeat is this love
The missing piece to every puzzle is this love
The song of my soul’s salvation is this love
The solution to every problem is this love
Sing aloud love’s song
Dance a jig for what love’s done
Love came for one and all
Love lives in all who answer the call
Like the season for this love I fall
Like the month I will march on and proclaim this love to all
This timeless gift is present and everlasting
It grows with every share, a love worth broadcasting
I relish in the thought of one day beholding love’s face
To see before me what was always within me: vase
Amazing love tis a sound so delish
I can only imagine what that would be
Oh the questions I’ll have when we meet face to face
Dear love, to be wrapped in your warm embrace
Yet somehow I feel all the questions may fade
But one thing I won’t hold back are the tears that’ll cascade
This love knew my pain and held on still
This love I threw away but he kept fellowship
This love I never deserved still he gave me him
This love I proclaim to see someday
Love that never led me astray
Love that always showed me the way
Love that made sure I was ok
Love is the reason I’m alive today
I dare say I love this love though so frail
For one thing, I’m sure would never fail
Is the love with which this love loves me every day
Hear me say I love this love once again
When once I tried my life to take
This love dove into my despair
When once I was shattered by heartache
My heart, this love, did mend and repair
When in doubt I stare at hopes gone
Love holds my hand and Faith restores
When words I cannot find to ease my heart
Love forms these lines that some call art
What’s in a name? What’s this love called?
This four-letter verb that has us enthralled?
The name, The Word, for a love so unique
That without it, my soul fades and my heart becomes weak
Perhaps when tomorrow will be in view
I would know what words could describe you
Perhaps my wonder as I stand in your view
Would let me see endless depths you love me through
This wonderful promise so amazing and true
It’s open to all, it’s available to you
Ready your heart for this gift we speak of
Christ’s unconditional and unchanging love
We testify of something so good for you
No need for diets you can’t overfeed on this truth
We write so you read and confess too
The love of God is true and for you
Qué es el mar sin peces
o la noche sin estrellas?
Qué es la abeja sin su miel
o el pájaro sin su canción?
Es como un lienzo vacío
un instrumento jamás tocado
o una canción sin música.
Como un jardín sin flores
un barco sin ancla
o una carta vacía.
Eso soy yo sin ti.
Tú eres mis cuatro estaciones
la luz en mi día
la paz en la noche.
Tenme cerca de ti.
Que mi corazón oiga el latido de tu corazón
que tus manos sean mi guía
y tus brazos mi refugio.
Que ame como tú amas
y perdone como tú perdonas.
Como el Este no puede ser sin el Oeste
no puedo ser sin ti.
Como el ciervo busca las aguas
Así busco por ti.
Qué es la vida sin propósito?
Eso soy yo sin ti.

Dr. Seuss once expressed: “To the world you may be one person; but to one person you may be the world.” Even if there’s only one…it’s worth it, especially when you are doing good, so keep going.
The King will reply, “Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.” (Matthew 25:40 NIV)
Sometimes it’s easy to forget the things that really matter. We become overwhelmed with fitting into a standard set by society; status, looks, titles, material possessions and so forth. Truth is, none of that matters if we aren’t fulfilling our ONE job which is outlined in Mathew 28:19. Like the good book says: For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? I could lose it all but never Jesus, my salvation is so much more valuable.
I once thought these things were valuable, but now I consider them worthless because of what Christ has done. (Philippians 3:7 NLT)
We often see movies or read books with stories of the medieval times where kings led their armies into war. This was done as a sign of bravery. A courageous king was considered a man of respect and honor. I think these are well worth it for one who doesn’t just sit on a throne and command but instead fights with His people for the kingdom. Our King is no different. God doesn’t just sit on His throne to watch us struggle, He leads the way to victory. Yes, sometimes this may seemingly be a lonely path, but rest assured that God is leading the way and has no intentions of leaving.
Do not be afraid or discouraged, for the Lord will personally go ahead of you. He will be with you; he will neither fail you nor abandon you. (Deuteronomy 31:8 NLT)
