Romans 9:25

Estimated Reading Time: 4 minutes Do not be afraid, dear one. The false loves are frightful banes, but they are forced to flee in the fearsome power of True Love. You are right to fear Love, for He is not only Love—He is Joy, Majesty, Beauty, Mercy, Justice, Compassion, Righteousness, Grace, Perfection, Holiness, Glory. He is I AM. He is not safe, but there is no safer place than in His arms.

Hosea 2:14

Estimated Reading Time: 4 minutes Listen, dear one. Listen to His whispers. He will not be a warm spring breeze to melt the winter; He will give you the Breath of Life Himself, and your heart will finally beat with His Life. He will not be the soft grass heralding the spring to comfort your worn and wounded feet; He will make your soul bloom and bear His fruit as He leads you by His nail-pierced hands to follow the road walked by His nail-pierced feet.

Matthew 11:12

Estimated Reading Time: 5 minutes Although I grew up in peace, war was not far across our borders, hence why people believe the parched lands of my childhood are constantly overflowing with rivers of blood. In the distant lands of my forebears, the most recent scars of war are only two generations away for most and a fresh wound for many in the southern isles. But death now looms over the entire nation as blood washes the streets even without war’s aid.

John 15:9

Estimated Reading Time: 4 minutes The prince of this world has long perverted the covenantal oath of I AM by removing His subsistence, presence, and eminence from the most scandalously, outrageously, unfathomably glorious declaration resounding throughout creation. Whenever those exceedingly precious words are uttered apart from Him, they become a curse—a chain of blades tightening upon the hearts of those who speak it and those who hear it.

Psalm 126:5-6

Estimated Reading Time: 3 minutes Behind your smiles and your laughter, can they see your hidden tears? Beyond your past and your present, can you see that young girl’s true smiles? Beneath your many masks and faces, can you hear your secret heart’s sighs? Before your broken dreams and lying hopes, can you hear the promised laughter written in that young girl’s destiny?
