Seeing truth is standing against lies
Pursue peace with all people, and holiness,
without which no one will see the Lord: ~ Hebrews 12:14
... those who have believed in God should be careful to maintain good works.
These things are good and profitable to men. ~ Titus 3:8
... put off, concerning your former conduct, the old man which grows
corrupt according to the deceitful lusts, ... ~ Ephesians 4:22

is better to marry than to burn with passion. ~ 1st Corinthians 7:9

their hearts individually; He considers all their works. ~ Psalms 33:13-15

The fool has said in his heart, "There is no God." They are corrupt,
They have done abominable works, ... ~ Psalms 14:1-2
Darkness crashes below the boundary of light
... incline your ear to wisdom, And apply your heart to understanding;

~ Proverbs 23:12

Treasure finds peace the greatest prize
Peace is disturbed when incentive has no purpose.

God waits to hear from each mortal heart
All hearts rest upon the gift of God's light.

God is visible in all that can be perceived
As we walk through life we see one another. This does not change the fact
while, if we are fortunate enough, to know the bottom of our own hearts,
we can never see or know that naked conscience of another. We can
know of others, but in God's own image, we all maintain autonomy unique
to the psyche of self. To see God is to know of Him, and respond to this
two-way call from the depths of our bottom desires. It is a call to mutually
connect in the holiest of pure unimpeded caring; absolute submission.
This defines a moment, and a test, as marriage reflects this ultimate
human achievement, the genuine commitment over foolish fleeting's.
The magic of love is found in freedom's core, joyously loving others.

Eternal Love is where a True Heart Lives
The spirit of a man is the lamp of the LORD, Searching

Given by God the Light that fires in each soul

But they have sought out many schemes." ~ Ecclesiastes 7:29
The paranoid pompous greedy ignore their own
The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD,
And He delights in his way. ~ Psalms 37:23
O LORD, I know the way of man is not in himself; It is not
in man who walks to direct his own steps. ~ Jeremiah 10:23

and into the patience of Christ. ~ 2nd Thessalonians 3:5
Intuition can hear the nudges of His truth
You also be patient. Establish your hearts,
for the coming of the Lord is at hand. ~ James 5:8
Influence is only as good as it results in positive change and upwelling
thoughts to inspire life's progress. It can be a challenge to rely on things
and or people with all the conflicts, and swirling desires enmeshed in
accusations, as well as denials. Time is a creation to test patience in truth,
and reveal individual hearts in trouble. How we respond declares what
we depend upon, ourselves, or a higher sense that knows better than
we ever could. Pure thoughts void of animosities can only be born,
and arise, from the love that extends from without from within. To be
full of self neglects this greater sense of emptying back to God,
and His reason for creation; to retrieve honest souls.
Nature calls to reflect goodness in God's Creation
Loyal Hearts find God in Service to His Word.
As in water face reflects face, So a man's heart reveals the man.

~ Hebrews 10:22
Joining in faith together is God's plan
"He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of
his heart will flow rivers of living water." ~ John 7:38
"For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also." ~ Matthew 6:21

and quiet spirit, which is very precious in the sight of God. ~ 1st Peter 3:3-4
Calm spirits lift wisdom to heaven's heights
... opportunity to boast on our behalf, that you may have an answer for
those who boast in appearance and not in heart. ~ 2nd Corinthians 5:12
Arrogance has the aroma of an evil heart
... If anyone is convinced in himself that he is Christ's, let him again
consider this in himself, that just as he is Christ's, even so we are Christ's.
~ 2nd Corinthians 10:7
Earth's prison bars traps one under the sky
And you are Christ's, and Christ is God's. ~ 1st Corinthians 3:23

out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us. ~ Romans 5:3-5
God's Fishing Hook
Hope deferred makes the heart sick, But when the desire comes,

Why should we deny the best life offers in Him?
But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and always be ready to give
a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, ...
~ 1st Peter 3:15
The test for eternal life paces before us all
Each of us reaches out to hold on to something, which includes both
the tangible and intangible. What we seek declares who we are; the
dichotomies that divide those good and evil battles from within. For a
heart to flourish in the light, one must hear that higher call where birds
sing, and the sun rises on all life. To meet that moment, caring for those
closest holds more relevance than distant anchors of disgust, which
may tend to dismiss and or stumble upon those said closest.
Hearts dance to the beat where love cancels hate.
Hearts are given to Find the Depths of Being
To appreciate life, it is God who gives life.
... whoever has this world's goods, and sees his brother in need,
and shuts up his heart from him, how does the love of God abide in him?

But if you have bitter envy and self-seeking in your hearts,

As weather grows cold, so do hearts
A sound heart is life to the body, But envy is rottenness to the bones.
~ Proverbs 14:30
Truth cannot be contradicted or denied
He also taught me, and said to me: "Let your heart retain my words;
Keep my commands, and live. ~ Proverbs 4:4
Cognitive powers have no equal
Flee also youthful lusts; but pursue righteousness, faith, love, peace with
those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart. ... ~ 2nd Timothy 2:22-26
Truths are useless without application
"If you do well, will you not be accepted? And if you do not do well, sin lies at
the door. And its desire is for you, but you should rule over it." ~ Genesis 4:7
Noble hearts use caution to control desire
... Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts,
you double-minded. ~ James 4:7-8

if you have love for one another." ~ John 13:34-35

because of the blindness of their heart; ... ~ Ephesians 4:18-19
Brutally dishonest, lies numb the heart
They devise iniquities: "We have perfected a shrewd scheme."
Both the inward thought and the heart of man are deep. ~ Psalms 64:6
Evil's hidden darkness has no rays of heart
Thus says the LORD: "Cursed is the man who trusts in man And makes flesh
his strength, Whose heart departs from the LORD." ~ Jeremiah 17:5
"... I, the Lord, search the heart, I test the mind, Even to give
every man according to his ways, ..." ~ Jeremiah 17:9-10
How quickly the heart disappears from view
As we travel upon the waves of time, each heart hopes
for assistance in obtaining joy or sanctuary from the horrors of living.
Endurance leads to more as all sails push forward. It is the breath of God
that delivers that deepest of laughter when heard for the truth that it is.
To remain ignorant of His will only leads to confusion and the
corruption that envelops all disloyal destructive hearts.
Love has always been the key to set one free.
Dark hearts are the Cancer that Devours Love

the thought of your heart may be forgiven you." ~ Acts 8:22
A seared conscience has no mercy

But the blameless in their ways are His delight. ~ Proverbs 11:20
Conduct without restraints condemns
Whoever secretly slanders his neighbor, Him I will destroy; The one who
has a haughty look and a proud heart, Him I will not endure. ~ Psalms 101:5
Wretched ambiance follows the proud
Before destruction the heart of a man is haughty,
And before honor is humility. ~ Proverbs 18:12

he was deposed from his kingly throne, and they took his glory from him."
~ Daniel 5:20

The greatest one can do is for others
... who will both bring to light the hidden things of darkness
and reveal the counsels of the hearts. ... ~ 1st Corinthians 4:5
Justice emancipates truth over all falsehoods
Terror has familiarity across all ages of mankind. Expeditions in living
have had diverse battle colors, just now current, and in countless past
spectrums. Love and hate too often has pushed passions past civility.
Hope has been a genuine call to survival. Comfort sought by the elite
has always subjected the meek. Human fish hooks seek freedom
from this monster trolling pole. What sinks the unity of a people is
acceptance of a liars lies. This is why His word has come to us.

Awake to God reveals the Greatest in Life
Heaven holds the heart of God for the faithful.
Opinion and bias guide each sinking or lifting moment in all civilizations,
where inevitably they fail to remember past stumbling's, and revert
to primordial lusts with little respect for decency. Rebellion holds
widespread anger crimes running rampant as the people cry for freedom,
in the blindness of countless liars. Noble actors evaporate in the fog.
The curtain always falls on those who cannot see the stage.
Unfortunately, humanity has the infectious disease of careless
forgetfulness, especially when societies want to set aside
and or blame the tyranny they believe oppresses them.
Crucibles of hate tarnish the edges as we try to climb out of mediocrity.
As God fades from our memories, we have no excuse when we lose
ourselves to the idols of our creation. Without sensibility, unity is only
a dream, and where all seeking quests have ridden for ongoing eons.
People can only find when they come to know. Ignorance has little
foundation, and more often eases into corruption. God gave us the
tools to gain the best outcome, if our choices are wise enough, and our
hearts are lovingly patient enough, to stand for His truths of character;
then our children may well in fact survive to meet another day.
Godless, heartless societies
have no chance of survival.
Darkness is the loneliness of a cold heart.
