A PLACE IN THE COUNTRY

Artist: “A Country Gem” by Artist: Nicky Boehme

A place in the country…

Is where I want to return to be.

It feels just like home to me.

The grass between my toes

Brings back memories of not so long ago.

When life was a much simpler time

And a sense of wonder was all mine.

Through my childhood years and into my youth

It was here that I found my God and Truth.

Growing in Faith and in the knowledge of His Word

I learned to depend and trust solely on the Lord.

While walking through these fields that I have returned

I have never forgotten the lessons that I learned.

I can still feel the gentle breeze of His love upon my face

The trip back to the country was more than just a kind embrace.

God’s grace is still abundantly present in this place.

Love, By Tina… 🌻

Love…

I wrote this piece two years ago not realizing at the time that this love that I dream of…
I already have…

His name is Jesus and His love is enough…

Love…
I dream of a love that believes in me more than I believe in myself.
A love where I can be totally and utterly myself.
Accepted and unmasked without fear of hiding any of the pieces of my broken heart.
One that seeks to help me mend the pieces back together again.
Patiently and without any resistance, lovingly weaving all the sorrow, pain and hurt into a perfect tapestry.

I’VE GOT A REASON TO WRITE

Today, on this blessed Sunday morning, I watched a sermon preached by Pastor J. Don George, on a message entitled, “I’ve Got A Reason To Preach.”

In listening to Pastor George message, he explained all the reasons why he preaches. I started to think about all the reasons why I write?

My mind started racing on all the reasons why I felt God has called me to write.

Was I writing because this was a gift given to me by God? Was I writing specifically for Him? Was I writing to glorify Him! Or was I writing for my own self-gratification, self-worth and desired accomplishments?

That sermon inspired me deeply. Here is my answer to the questions that I had asked myself.

The answer is simple. I write because I know God wants to use me as a vessel to spread His love to a lost and hurting world.

God didn’t give me the gift of writing so that I might be glorified, but rather that He might.

Oh yes, I silently wish in my heart that I could write as elegantly and gracefully as my favorite poet, “Helen Steiner Rice.”

I may not be gifted in the aspects that God gifted Helen, but nonetheless, God bestows certain individual gifts to each of His children.

And His purpose for those gifts given, only He knows. My gifts are no different.

As I have explained previously on my Facebook ministry pages, as well as in the ‘About’ section of this blog, I Write For Jesus!

I even wrote a piece of poetry in 2018 entitled, “FOR JESUS I WRITE.”

I write because God has uniquely gifted me to write.

God has given me the gift of words. I long to draw others closer to Him.

It is my deep desire to share that which invites us into truly knowing God’s heart.

God’s wisdom and His Word are transforming me as a person and as a writer.

Words are like whispers from God; softly spoken to my heart, so I must write.

Like all gifts from Him, I want to surrender writing for the benefit of God’s kingdom, a record for the next generation; as well, as for my own personal growth, testimony and journey.

A record of my walk with Christ and the journey He takes me on each and every day.

The lessons He teaches me through trials, heartache, and joys of life.

The challenges He sets before me through His Word and His leading.

To encourage and inspire as I am encouraged and inspired.

To share what the Lord places in my heart and mind.

Much like you, because of Jesus, I have a story to tell…about God’s grace and provision in my life, so I write about what God has done.

There is power in my story.

“Let the redeemed of the Lord, tell their story!” ( Psalm 107:2)

It is my daily prayer that God will bless my words to become expressions of His goodness.

Today, and always, may He use me as His instrument to inspire and spread His love.

It is my hope for others to experience God’s Truth through, “Expressions of His Love.”

May you be challenged, convicted, and encouraged as He draws you into a closer relationship with Him.

These are just a few of my personal desires and the reasons why I write.

There is much more to my story, which is often revealed through my walk with Christ.

When sharing my writing and/or poetry here… it is always with a gentle and humble heart.

My intentions are pure.

Writing for me peacefully brings me to the place of grace.

Where I can unashamedly express my heart…always with the hope that others will catch a glimpse of His.

All because of Jesus, I’ve got so many reasons to write.

You are always welcome to come along with me on my journey and I hope you find God speaks to you through what is written here and blesses you on your own walk of faith.

May you find rest in the unfathomable riches of His goodness and grace.

– Love, By Tina…✍️

LOVE REMAINS

I don’t want to look back on my life with regrets.
Things left undone.
Words left unspoken.
Did I give enough?
Did I love enough?
Did I live enough?
Life is a beautiful gift of God.
And time waits for no one.
It is fleeting…
It passes you by.
It rolls on forever.
Like the clouds in the sky.
So don’t let us throw one sweet moment away.
Let’s love.
While we may.
Give what you can.
Whenever you can.
However you can.
By whatever means you can.
Without expecting anything in return.
Love with all your heart.
You can never love too much.
And don’t forget to live.
I mean ‘really live’.
Make life a beautiful adventure.
Because it truly is.
Leave no room for regrets.
Cherish the moments spent.
With those you love.
Life changes.
But, a life breathed with love.
Will forever remain.
♥️ 

Memories of a life well lived are but a treasure only to be imprinted in the hearts of those we love.
Make sure they are good ones.

Love By, Tina… ♥️

I SEE YOU

Artist: Daniel F. Gerhartz – Ana


I wanted to share a little of my heart with you. This was written for myself as a way to express my thoughts on how I hope the Lord sees MY heart. Because Only HE KNOWS MY TRUE HEART! And He knows yours! May you be blessed! ♡

I SEE YOU

I see you

I feel your heart

I feel your pain

I have held your tears in the palm of my hand.

I see you

I know when you are happy

I know when your soul is weary

I see you

I am there in the midst of your storm. When life seems unbearable.

I feel your sorrows

I see your sadness

I see you

I feel your tears

I know what it is like for you to live inside your heart and mind.

I see you do it everyday

I see you

I see your love for others

I feel your compassion

I see you go about your days, leading the hurting and the lost to Me.

Even in the midst of your own struggles I see you inspire and encourage others not to give up hope.

I see you pour out your heart and love to those around you.

I see you

I also see that many days you feel like a weary warrior, too tired to fight.

I see when you have exhausted your faith and lost your compassion for My people.

I see you

I long to give you the keys to be free from the things that bind you and see you break through to a blessed life in Me.

I see your heart and I know that you know that I’m the way. I know that you know that I’m your freedom.

I have heard your prayers, and I see that your faith is completed by the work of My Holy Spirit living in you. I see that you have chosen to live the rest of your days in my truth.

I see you

Today I want to paint an eternal picture for my beloved daughter.

Every time you pray for someone, you are changing their destiny from darkness to light.

You are more than a light in the darkness. Your faith will continue to be a raging fire that will burn into the hearts of many generations who follow your works left on earth.

I see you

And I love you, my good and faithful servant.

Your are my beloved daughter and I see you.

Your Eternal King, Christ Jesus

“This is the way… walk in it.”

Artist: Anne Larose

I want to share something with you that the Lord lay on my heart. This message is for myself as well as for someone else who needs to hear it.

We all go through hardships. We all face trials. We all go through unforeseen circumstances that are out of our control. We all face financial difficulties. At some point in our lives we will all have to experience the loss of a loved one. Maybe even the painful loss of a child. Maybe you are facing painful martial issues or maybe even divorce. Maybe you have a family member who is under the bondages of drugs and alcohol. Maybe you are experiencing health problems or know a loved one suffering from cancer or another devastating disease.

Whatever your situation or circumstances, I know how these things can make you feel like there is no way out, no end is in sight, no overcoming, no victory to be had.

Grief, pain and sorrow are so prevalent in your life that you feel like just giving up. Maybe you can’t escape the depression you experience because of it all.

Maybe you feel suffocated and screaming for air. Maybe you feel like you are in the middle of the ocean, just swimming and swimming but never able to reach the shore. Maybe you feel like you are in a bottomless pit with no way of reaching the top. Happiness is something others experience, but not you.

But I’m here to tell you that no matter what you are facing today or what you may face tomorrow, Don’t give up! Keep fighting the good fight of Faith. Keep trusting the Lord!

Don’t allow the enemy to fill your mind with thoughts of defeat. Satan is real clever and he will use your circumstances to accomplish his goal in weakening your faith. Don’t let him!

Everything and I mean everything that happens in your life, happens for a reason. We don’t always understand why things happen to us.

The message I feel led to give you is this:

Get out of that depressing state of mind. Get those negative thoughts out of your mind. Satan was defeated when Jesus shed His precious blood for you at Calvary’s cross. Victory is yours!

Use your situation or circumstances to help others. Turn your situation into something good and use it for something positive.

Remember this:
Someone once said and I paraphrase…

⋱⋱ ⋮ ⋰ ⋰
You see there is a lesson to be learned from every circumstance or situation in your life. When you are faced with trials always remember that a true test of faith is to welcome the storm. Learn from it and decide to let it make you stronger and better, not bitter for having to go through it.

Recognize that most often times God is trying to teach you something within yourself. No matter what comes your way, stay true to your faith. Listen and quite your heart so that you may always hear His voice saying, “This is the way… walk in it.”
