You are Loved

When Theresa writes poetry, the inspiration comes from her or her family's true life experiences, which results in dramatic poetry.

God Is Passionate for Us


Do not worry about love

Precious ones . . .


I know you have been hurt

And feel so alone.


I know you don’t feel loved.


I AM love, divine love.


I AM in pursuit of you.


I AM desirous of a very intimate relationship with you through Christ.


I AM the One, the ONLY.


I AM the keeper of ALL of my many thousands of promises.


I AM the shoulder on which to place your head.


I AM the One who knows everything about you; your every thought; your every care.


I AM always near to you.


I AM never going to abandon you.


I AM free in pouring out my mercy upon you each and every morning.


I AM your fountain of living water, come and drink and never thirst for anything again.


I AM the only One who can satisfy you.


I AM the One you hunger for spiritually.


I AM the life; the giver of life.


I AM the Door; please knock and I will invite you into My presence.


I AM good.


I AM the One who will never harm you.


I AM going to prosper you.


I AM the One who has plans for you; you have a future with me.


I AM the light of your life.


I AM the way.


I AM the One to take you by the hand to places you have never been before.


I AM your hope.


I AM the One who will truly love you forever.


I AM your nourishment.


I AM the truth (no more lies with me).


I AM the One who can set you free from it all, everything.


I AM unique, like nothing you have ever encountered before or ever will again.


I AM your bridegroom (male and female).


I AM the only One who can meet your greatest needs.


I AM the One who knows how truly beautiful you are, inside and out.


I AM the One who will dry your every tear.


I AM the One who whispers sweet things about you in your ears.


I AM the One who will have the angels singing sweetly over you every night.


Do not worry about love

Precious ones . . .


I AM your Savior.


I AM.

Worshipping Without Inhibitions

The following video is of one of my favorite worship songs, as everything “All Around Me” just fades away, and I can feel His presence ushering in all around me. How amazing is He!

One of my favorite lines in the song is . . .

I feel you touch my fingertips. My tongue dances behind my lips for You.”

Who says God’s love is boring?

Who says there is no passion?

Not me, for I know Him.

He is very passionate for you and He will never stop pursuing you until He has that personal and very intimate relationship with you through Christ.

God wants us to be “hot” not lukewarm, but “hot” in our relationship with Him. If you are not “hot,” then He would rather you be cold than lukewarm.

God tells us in His Word in Revelation 3:14-22 . . .

"I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other! So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth." (Revelation 3:14-22 NIV)

The David Crowder Band - All Around Me


For those who are more visual, then you will no doubt love this video of a great new group called Flyleaf, who has a lead female vocalist, who is just awesome in her worship for the LORD. Although, this is the same song in the above video presented, wow, vastly different in presentation. I am glad there are those are who are not afraid to express their love for their Heavenly Father in this manner. Please enjoy! After all, we are to be on fire for Him!!!


The LORD tells us in Psalm 139:17-18 TLB, just how often he thinks of us.

"How precious it is, Lord, to realize that You are thinking about me constantly! I can't even count how many times a day Your thoughts turn towards me."

      Hello Again Dearest Word55,

      Thank you for blessing my hub pages here of late! You are so sweet to give me such high praise, but I love to give it all to Him for His glory. If I could write a book, I would attempt to be mindful to give Him all the glory. Thank you for believing in me that I am even capable of doing such.

      May God continue to bless you too, dear heart.

      Good morning Faith, I'm glad to be praising The Lord with your spirit this a.m. How deep can you go? I love it! I see that I've been missing a lot. I feel that I have a real sister in Christ, in you. I love the straight and narrow way. The songs/videos were number ones. Keep up the great work of writing. Have you ever written and published a book? May God continue to bless you!

      Amen!!! God is our strength and our redeemer and lives filled with His passion are on fire for Him, no doubt.

      Living a life without His mercy and goodness and strength would be barren and so lonely.

      So blessed to know His love and to find those like you, who adore and cherish Him so.

      Hoping you and yours had a blessed and lovely Easter.

      Angels are on the way to you ps

      Hi A M, it is now the a.m. in sweet home Alabama, 12:29 a.m.

      So glad for your visit! Thank you for stopping by to read and leaving kind comments. Yes, I had just discovered Flyleaf and they do seem to appeal to the younger generation, so I wanted to put it on here for variety. That is wonderful about your daughters worshipping our LORD with such passion, as He does want us to be on fire for Him. Yes, I agree about the positive teaching for young ladies is vital today, especially.

      Great poem and I love the Flylead song at the end. My daughters are huge Flyleaf fans and sing their songs during our Home Assemblies. We saw them live two years ago and they were really good. The girls were screaming and crying throughout the show - lots of positive preaching for young ladies. Peace

      Most Precious One Epi,

      You are so very precious to give a smile to my face here tonight. I really do not care about the score either, but as I have read, one of the main purposes of the score being high is so that those will come to read whatever message you may "attempt" to bring here on HP. And my message, as everyone has most likely surmised by now is that of love ---love all others, and love Him first. One must be able to love oneself before one can love others . . . broken record sounding, am I sure. You are such a dear to raise my score in your eyes, how very sweet. I love that old time jazz music too. Enjoy your night, and I pray you will have the sweetest dreams, so that we will be able to read about them the next morning! In His Love Always, Faith Reaper

      as I haven't made one penny here in over 2 years but if I were awarding hub scores you would definitely receive a - 101 - from me - a 100 perfect hub score plus 1 that you would receive for being number one in my book - with your wonderful attitude, pure heart and open mind - lake erie time 9:34pm - rocking lake erie tonight with some old time jazz music ......

      Hi Epi,

      I am always so happy to see your face as many times as possible dear one. Thank you so much for asking about my weekend, as I did indeed have a very sweet and lovely one with my two beautiful and precious granddaughters. I appreciate the warm wishes always. I know I have been neglecting my writing here, as sometimes life's responsibilities will get in the way. However, when my granddaughters come, I give them my all, and everything else can wait. I do see that my score is spiraling down from 95 from just last week, and so I do realize I need to step up my game here. I have many hubs in the hopper as they say, but I need to have time to finish them up. I pray you are well dear one, and hope that your night on the lake is just as lovely as you are of a person. God bless. In His Love, Faith Reaper

      Oh precious one, thank you for leaving such honest comments here. I truly understand about past hurts. As I have grown up with many, which I have not written about here, except just a little, but I do plan on soon. I have only hit the tip of the iceberg, as they say on writing here on HP. Keep searching dear one and you will find. Yes, I just love all of His glorious creation. No man could ever re-create a stunning sunset, no matter how hard he tried. It is really and truly never too late to be truly set free from those chains that keep one in bondage. Believe me, when He revealed to me at the age of 30 that I had unforgiveness in my heart about something from my past that was hindering me in being the person I am today, and I was actually harming my own body, as it will rot one to the bone, I immediately felt as if a huge heavy load had been lifted off my shoulders. I cold move on and look forward to the future and live in this day, and not in that past day and time. Hey, sometimes the people who hurt us or harm us, in a lot of cases, probably most . . . do you think they are sitting there suffering about how they have harmed you (but those too most likely have been harmed by someone else in their past). In other words, by not letting go and casting all of that stuff up to Him, one only harm's oneself. I am only speaking from my own experience in such matters dear one. I appreciate your refreshingly honest comments here. I will pray about all of this dear one. In His Love, Faith Reaper

      Oh baby, I admire your words and would truly like to say that they inspired me. I am but a sad lonely woman when it comes to believing in God, my past has left me with so many "what ifs and hows?" I used to believe when I was a teenager, but sadly no longer. I know that there is something out side of ourselves that we can believe in, but I just haven't found the answer yet. To me it is nature and all her glory.

      Thank you for making me re-think my position, maybe it is not too late for me to try to understand.

      Oh so lovely & sweet!! A beautiful reminder of the great depths and majestic heights that our God's love goes for us! Did you know that you have beautiful feet??? Yes, you do, according to Isaiah 52:7 (NASB) "How lovely on the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news, who announces peace and brings good news of happiness who announces salvation, and says to Zion, "Your God reigns!".

      God bless you with strength, joy & peace as He continues to anoint your mouth and your hand to tell the Good News!!

      Love you sister!

It is a very special and intimate relationship and you too can have that, just seek Him with all your heart and you will find Him. This is the truth precious heart. If He can love me, then He surely can love all others, as that is just it, He already loves everyone on this whole planet and that is why He came to save ALL, the whole world, not just us Christians. He will continue to be in pursuit of you dear one, and He will never give up. Thank you for such heartfelt words expressed here. Thanks for sharing. You are too kind and have a good heart. God bless.

      Hello Genna, so great to see you here stopping by to read and I appreciate the lovely comments to glorify our God. Yes, it is in those dark places that His love finds us, as that is when we are crying out to Him. When everything is lovely, we tend to forget that He desires that personal intimate relationship with Him at all times. He is always so faithful. In His Love, Faith Reaper

      Good Morning Gypsy - I am so happy to see you here this morning! Yes, there is NO greater love than His love, divine love, agape love, and what a great reason for us to be passionate about Him, because He first loved us. It is good to sing and worship the LORD no matter where you are, as He loves that. I know I do every day during the week while driving in my car on my hour commute back and forth, even while cleaning the house! That really makes my day to usher in His presence all around me. It is such a beautiful day here today too. There is not one bit of humidity and the skies are so beautifully blue on this peaceful Sunday morning. I know it is so beautiful where you live and I have always enjoyed it when you share your awesome photos here on HP. God bless you. In His Love, Faith Reaper
