Moving at the Speed of Love

Quiet Time 6-22-22 (I CORINTHIANS 15:31 - I affirm, by the boasting in you which I have in Christ Jesus our Lord, I die daily.) What are You telling me, Lord? I died upon the cross so you can live, My body broken, bruised so you’re made whole; My blood was shed so all your sins forgive, I gave my all to save your precious soul. Now you believe in Me with all your heart, And here I dwell in you, My dearest friend; You must be broken daily to take part In all the love and glory that I send. To die to self is life in Me, My love; Surrender all you have with childlike trust, And know I won’t forsake you from above, For in your faith in Me you must entrust. When you die daily, I much more emerge, And here, abide in Me, as we…

Quiet Time 6-14-22

Moving at the Speed of Love

(PSALM 16:1 - Preserve me, O God: for in thee do I put my trust.)

What are You telling me, Lord?


Take refuge in the love I have for you,
For I surround you with My hedge of grace,
And as you cling to Me with faith so true,
The veil will fall so you can see My Face.
Let nothing stand between the two of us,
For I desire no less than we be one,
And you will know we have much to discuss,
The mysteries that prove you are My son.
Your trust in Me must be so absolute,
For with such pure devotion freedom reigns,
And from the root of hope you bear much fruit,
The glory of My love in you remains.
	Pick up your cross and know that I am Here,
	Preserving you with love and joy so dear.

I John 4:18 Quiet Time

Moving at the Speed of Love

(I JOHN 4:18 - There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love.)


Agape love will drive out every fear,
For it displays the perfect will of God.
Considering another’s need is dear,
Whereas a move by angst is surely flawed.
Whatever fear you have will hold you back
From all the gifts that comes from perfect love,
Until the enemies of God attack
And you’re trapped in the flesh and all thereof.
There is no fear in love, it cannot be.
One draws you back, the other draws you in.
Surrender all to Christ and you will see
His Presence casts out fear for love within.
     The only thing to fear is God above;
     With awe and reverence to Him in love.

Psalm 9:2 Quiet Time

Moving at the Speed of Love

6/8/22 Quiet Time

(PSALMS 19:1 - The heavens declare the glory of God; And the firmament shows His handiwork.)

Like stars among the trees are fireflies,
While honeysuckle fills the summer air,
And constellations dress the southern sky.
All point to God His majesty declares.
Behold the moon! The mistress of the night,
Reflecting glowing luster from the sun,
And here on Earth creation shouts delight
For all He is and all that He has done.
The glory of the Lord is plain to see,
Within a child’s eyes and mountains tall!
A grain of sand, the swelling of the sea,
The universe proclaims that God is all!
	Attune your heart to love and you will hear
	The heavens praise the name of God so clear.

NOW

Moving at the Speed of Love

NOW You tell me to write.
I feel a soft click in my soul
Like a mystic tumbler sliding into place.
NOW You tell me to speak,
With wide open heart,
With suffering and joy.
You get through to me now
As if I’d gained new ears
Attuned to the Spirit
Only.
You are my King,
Lord,
God,
Father,
Saviour,
Friend,
Comforter,
Helper,
My All.
You tell me there is only One,
Abiding
Love.
You in me
In You.
THIS
Is the Kingdom
And the Power
And the Glory
Forever.
Always
In all ways,
For
You ARE
The Way.

*Da,YOU are my voice now.


(Ephesians 1:11-12: 11. In Him also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestined according to the purpose of Him who works all things according to the counsel of His will, 12. that we who first trusted in Christ should be to the praise of His glory.)

9/12/21 – Every Spiritual Blessing

Moving at the Speed of Love

(Ephesians 1:3 - Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ)


Jehovah Jireh promises such gifts
Beyond the count that mortal man can reach,
Of blessings from all spiritual lifts
To those whose Lord is Christ in heart and speech.
Believing that He died for all your sins,
And rose again to conquer death and hell,
You reap the benefits of those who wins,
The Kingdom’s glory now upon you dwells.
Accepted and adopted without blame,
The mystery of God’s will He gives with grace!
A holy child of Abba is your claim,
Ambassador to Heaven in this place!
	Embrace through God your new identity;
	The gifts He showers down on you are free.

Abba

From the innermost part of You
I was born, and with Your
first thought of me, I was Yours.
You wrote my name in the Book of Life
and claimed me.
Father, I am Yours.
Make me the instrument of Your will.
Do with me as You will
On earth as well as in Heaven.

Show me Your ways, my Beloved.
Teach me Your path.
Lead me in Your truth and guide me.
I wait day and night for You.
Remember, O Jehovah
Your shining light and loving heart;
For it has ever been Your will
To bring the least of Your children to You.

The Kingdom of Heaven is like teaching a man to fish by catching one for him.

Long Time No Write

It's been almost three years since I posted on this site. I've become part of a wonderful and loving church congregation here in Florence, Alabama called Followers of Christ Fellowship through the Stephen Gray Ministries. We specialize in Spirit-led discipleship, or in other words, showing Christians how to grow into the image of Christ by having a vibrant and active relationship with Him through revelation, prayer, even conversation. Jesus wants so much to talk with you! Much more about this later.

God has recently started me back on writing daily sonnets based on the insight He has given me through scripture. You can find me there every day at Moving at the Speed of Love. 

If you would like to contact me, feel free to email me at jaytharding11@gmail.com.

Blessings and peace to you!
