Rock Ballad Of The Week: David Coverdale “Wherever You May Go”

You mean the world to me
More than I can say
And when I look at you
It takes my breath away
I look into your eyes
And see the love for me
Once again I realise
There’s nowhere else I’d rather be

And when my life is over
When my time is through
I’ll still be loving you
You’re all I want
Everything I need
When I look at you it’s easy to believe

No matter what you say
No matter what you do
Wherever you may go
My heart will follow you

You stand beside me
When my back’s against the wall
You cradle my uncertainty
And catch me when i fall
So put your arms around me
Like a circle around the sun
Touch me with your healing hand
And show my life has just begun

And when this time is over
When this life is through
I’ll still be loving you

You’re all I want
Everything I need
When I look at you
It’s easy to believe

No matter what you say
No matter what you do
Wherever you may go
My heart will follow you

And when my life is over
When my time is through
I’ll still be loving you

You’re all I want
Everything I need
When I look at you
It’s easy to believe

No matter what you say
No matter what you do
Wherever you may go
My heart will follow you

Who am I

That you would give me your heart

Who am I

That you would give me your love

Who am I

That Love’s fortune would shine on me

Who am I

That love would take life in the form of you

Who am I

To give you my heart

Who am I

To give you love unconditionally

🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹

Sand falls through the hourglass

Time stands still then time passes

Life will end with the last grain of sand

But my love for you will forever last

#MondayThoughts: Faith Defies The Odds

Faithless is he that says farewell when the road darkens.

It is tough to see when you cannot see. This is not just physically but mentally too. When you cannot see what is ahead or picture what is ahead, it gives you that feeling of uncertainty because you do not know what is going to happen next.

Life is filled with surprises (good and bad). It also has a certain routiness to it (good and bad). We mention tomorrow but we don’t know if tomorrow exist, it is a preconditioned assumption that we will exist tomorrow, a naturally human thought. When life presents us with something outside the routine, we begin to question ourselves as to what we will do. We confront the situation and we make the best choice possible within our reasoning, either out of confidence or fear, hoping for the best end result pertaining to our life’s journey.

When we decide to place certain goals in our lives or a dream which we would like to live out, life doesn’t always cooperate to make those goals and dreams attainable or realized, so it begins to stack the odds against us by way of obstacles, challenges, negative opinions and believe it or not, life will give you fact based evidence as to why you cannot achieve your goal or realize your dream. So, what do you do?

We often talk about hope and having hope and keeping hope alive. Hope is like a match that is constantly burning and making sure you do not give up completely. We all have given up at one point or another ( the “oh well, I guess it wasn’t meant to be). You know that is the most bullshit filled statement that was thought of. Hope is a catalyst for faith.

When I talk about faith I am not referring to religious practices or denomination. I am talking about the supernatural tool that defies human logic, reasoning and nature. Faith moves mountains and those mountains are in the form of what stands between us and our hopes, goals and dreams. Faith takes what we see and perceive naturally and gives us access to a power that creates out of what we cannot see. Faith pulls a rabbit out of a hat with there being no hat visible. Faith tells you that water is as solid as the ground and that you can walk on it.

When life changes the odds, it is basically telling us either you really want it or you don’t. The odds make us question ourselves in our confidence, abilities, capabilities and motive. How many times have we heard “the odds are against you.” “The odds aren’t in your favor.” When we hear this, we either agree or disagree, purge ahead or give up (sometimes before we even get started). Sometimes the odds are easy to overcome and we are homefree in the direction of our goals. Then there are the times when the odds seem to not just be against us but weigh heavily on us so as to not allow us to even take a step in the direction we want to go. Odds be damned,we can do it, we can achieve it, we can make it, we can realize it.

He knows that as long as a man keeps his faith in God and in himself nothing can permanently defeat him.

– Wilferd Peterson

Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.

Hebrews 11:1

Faith is one of the most powerful spiritual weapons we have access to with Love being the most powerful. We can live a nondefeated life, sure we will experience ups and downs but with the powerful combination of Faith and Love, we can accomplish anything.

Friday Inspiration: We Have An Awesome God

God is greater than

Any situation or circumstance

The skeptics choose not to believe

Content to drown in self misery

But I choose faith over disbelief

Knowing that God will supply all that I need

Undetachable

Unmatchable

The photograph says it all

As huge as the world is

In this moment it is very small

Thank you and keep that heart beautiful

Love is the compass

#RomanticTuesday: Love Fortified

I find you at some point in my day

Aside from the surrounding world

It is just you and I

The energy of our love is empowering

Fortifying the bridge that leads from your heart to mine

And my soul to yours

#ThoughtfulThursday 2: Reasons

Once again

Reasons sound out

As to why

My feet keep moving forward

No discouragement

Encouragement is high octane fuel

Any outcome is plausible

But I believe in the one that breaks the mold

To a totally different world

LOVE IS A BEAST
