Embracing the Extreme

Posted in Uncategorized at 4:04 am by Broken & Brave

Don’t lose hope in a God who does great and mighty miracles.
He’s done them before-
He can do them again.
I’ve witnessed them before-
I will witness them again.
There is Joy for you in the Journey.
This is not the end. Don’t give up.

In my life I have experienced the extremes-extreme hardship, extreme blessing-and everything in between. It was in my trials that I learned how to supplicate the heart of God. It was in my sufferings of soul that I learned how quick He is to hear me as though all along he were waiting at the door to betroth my soul. He brings peace. He brings beauty for ashes. He brings resolute strength. He equips us before hand for all he encompasses for our future and its every demand. Sifting is hard-but remaining pure of heart, mind, soul is hardest in the confines of blessing.

If you want to learn how to have Peace at all times and find contentment for each day I encourage you to read and meditate on the entire chapter of Philippians 4 in the New Testament of the Bible. It’s pages contain great wisdom and application for daily life. God wants to be in your life, for life. ~Nicole

“Therefore, my beloved and longed-for brethren, my joy and crown, so stand fast in the Lord, beloved.”

“But those who drink the water I give will never be thirsty again. It becomes a fresh, bubbling spring within them, giving them eternal life.” John 4:14

The body is comprised almost entirely of water. We cannot live without it. It is a foundation sustenance that maintains and sustains life. Drinking water hydrates your skin, your organs function best when well hydrated and our cells maintain their shape and replicate best in the presence of adequate moisture. Without enough water fatigue sets in, the body begins to compromise its integrity and ability to function properly. Sustained dehydration leads to disease.
Just as it is for the body, it is also true for the heart and soul.

Jesus is the only Rock you can drink from.

Take the time to properly nourish your soul. It will refresh you, bless you, correct you and keep you. Your Peace and Joy will begin to exude everywhere you go! So make time everyday. Be willing to say no to the wants or requests of others for a bit of time so you can unwind at the precious feet of Jesus. Drink from His Cup and never thirst again. ~Nicole

Candidate For Victory

Each day of your life is like a page in the story of your life. What will be written today?

I love to write. It is in me to do so since childhood. As I reflect back over my life I see how he directed me to my pen over and over again.
I love a good pen.
I adore the touch and feel, the luster of quality paper.
I have countless volumes of journals. I type on the keyboard, but it just isn’t the same. There’s something magnificent to me about the creative flow of writing and my pen in my hand. It’s like prophetic art-it flows as God shows.

God has hand picked and ear marked you for Glory. He is writing for you and ever amazing story. Don’t give up! Let Him lavish your heart in Hope. GOD sees you as fully QUALIFIED for how ever he has designed and taken the time to transcribe the pages of your destiny as they unfold like pages into the life he wants you to lead. You are His Candidate for Victory. So press in, press on and carry on…
You’ve got this! ~Nicole

“That is why I run straight for the finish line; that is why I am like a boxer who does not waste his punches.”
