Oneness

Posted in Uncategorized tagged , , , , , , , , at 7:43 am by Broken & Brave

Heaven is Besotted with you.

To our heart Chamber HE holds the key.
He unlocks our reservations and expectations,
both the good and the bad, and he draws us near.
Do you remember the first time meeting?
Maybe you haven’t met yet?
It may go something like this…

There was a heart pounding and the trumpet of his love was sounding,asking and inviting you in. Though we may refrain because of life experience or pain- something inside us feels safe there and knows, it is okay if we open the door, so we yield our heart and become open to him.

This is where His love spreads warm and thick. We become covered in it. Then we realize that no other love could fit quite like this…it’s like and intricate hand made glove…perfect fit.
Only this glove not only fits the hand, but the heart as well.

The God of heaven is Besotted, and he sent his Holy Presence, his Holy Spirit for the One- you realize you were never lost or forgotten.

We became One in His Love.

When we learn Oneness with God we gain a new awareness. We benefit in strength, insight, wisdom, as we draw in to the very heart of God.

He has betrothed himself to you.

People don’t speak words like “betrothed” anymore- so what does that mean?
In a world that has become a throw away culture, divided, offended, and lacking resilience to stay the course-
God does the opposite.

He will never walk away.
His heart is yours to keep.
Oneness-

The more we seek him the more we demonstrate Oneness, too. Like an old married couple that have been together a long time- so it is the more we yield to the heart of heaven and submit our will and ways to Him.

There is power in yielding.
There is power in humility.
There is power in Holy submission.

Connect to the Power Source.
Reside safely in the Sanctuary of his heart and the Temple of His Goodness. He is knocking on your heart’s door. He not only wants to come in, but he wants to sink in deeply. He quickens your soul and highlights his designs and blessings to you. Become One with him and watch Him reveal more of himself in you, to you and through you.

Guard your heart, for your life is precious.
He will guard it, too, and he will protect your treasure because that’s how much he loves you.

A love like that…there is no other.

Besotted💜

Beauty

Posted in Inspirational tagged , , , , , , , , , at 8:32 am by Broken & Brave

What is Beauty?

To me, a beautiful woman is one who can carry herself in confidence.
But the confidence she carries herself within is not her own;
it is the knowing she has of the One on the Throne to whom her heart is betrothed.
When you belong to The King,
you hold your head high for you are His to keep.

Ladies, you have immeasurable worth. Hold your head high
and take pride.
Not in your face,
nor in your figure
or in your wits
or any past accomplishments.

Though you have these treasures, there is a deeper treasure to be found in you.

Protect it.

You are like Precious Cargo on a Barge sailing to your Destiny.
You are secure. ~Nicole

The Pollen of Passion

Posted in Inspirational tagged , , , , , , , , , , at 8:15 am by Broken & Brave

Your successes are safely tucked within your struggle.

Are you struggling?

Right now it looks like progress, passion, perseverance and heart. These are the attributes, the grit, that everything GREAT is made from. It’s never too late to be whatever you want to be. Believe~in yourself and every possibility etched within. Begin~to take the required actions steps of faith required to manifest destiny. As you do these things you will see yourself become all He has woven within you to be..
Like a Valiant Steed does he proceed ahead making a way for absolutely everything you will need to complete your purposed journey.

God will direct your path and the lives of those he has hand picked for you to touch. I believe this with all of my heart. So, never be too hard on yourself, nor too easy either. You are designed, set apart, and created to rise higher and take others with you, too. You’ve got a lot to offer this world, just dig deep inside and LOVE it all out!

From the Crown of your head to the soul of your feet, may the Lord’s plan for your life be made whole and complete. Every little thing you have ever experienced can be used of God to build your heart, hope and happiness if you let it. Life is a beautiful arrangement, like a bouquet of flowers and He is the Gardener. You’ve got a way about you all your own that has a lingering presence.

The world wouldn’t be the same without you. ~Nicole

“For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.”

Perfect Sense

Posted in Uncategorized tagged , , , , , , , , , , at 11:05 pm by Broken & Brave

God Sense vs. Common Sense-there is a difference!

I’ve told this story before but it’s a favorite because there is a definite cause and effect of unity and obedience.

I dream.

I see events and gain knowledge of things I have no way of knowing in my dreams. It has been this way since my childhood. Sometimes I see facts as they are and sometimes I see future events and then watch them transpire.

Here is an example…

I dreamed of a young family and saw them without money and were about to be evicted from the home they were renting. I knew them well enough to call and ask if my dream was true. They said, “yes.” They only had a few days to find several months rent and they did not have it. John and I prayed. We didn’t have that much money extra but felt we were to help them. So, we paid their rent and got them caught up. This created need for us as the funds I gave were drawn from my budget, not from a surplus. The first being a need for groceries.

IMG_1807

I prayed and told God that my obedience got me in this situation so he needed to feed us. I literally prayed and gave Him a short list of items that could get us by until payday.

Within a couple hours a friend came knocking on my door stacking groceries on my porch. She looked at me funny as though she felt she were crazy. She said, “What is up?” As she headed back to her car for more food. I hadn’t told anyone of my need for food. I confirmed that she was hearing God and she wasn’t crazy. She told me, “It was so strange”.
She was leaving Costco and everything in her began to compel her heart and mind toward me and she knew she had to go back in and buy me food. She hadn’t done anything like this before. As she walked down the aisles she prayed and asked what to buy because she had no clue. She just followed her gut feeling so to speak. Don’t you know she purchased every single item on my grocery list made out to Heaven.

Obedience to God’s “gut feelings” or “still small voice” can bring answered prayer to another’s need. Never let our delay be another’s denial. I heard and answered another’s need then God covered my back and took care of my need. God’s Army is a team, each of us yolked to each other as a marriage of Spirit.

Trust God with your life!

“Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?”

Matthew 6:26

“I have never seen the Lord forsake a man who loves him; nor have I seen the children of the godly go hungry.” Psalm 37:25

Drawing…

Posted in Uncategorized tagged , , , , , , , , , at 7:09 am by Broken & Brave

“Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.” James 4:8

God’s voice can come with Strength and Might like gale force wind. Other times His voice is soft and gentle like the whisper of the breeze through the leaves of a tree. Either way, we must be watching, waiting, and attentive for it.

Part of chasing after the heart of God is learning to press in through prayer. PRESSING IN may require you to PRESS OUT of your comfort zone.

Sometimes our comfort is stretched by merely being still and allowing God to be God. There is nothing you can do better than The Lord. His ways are not ours, so practice the art of trusting Him, leaning on Him, abiding in Him and not on ourselves. It’s always a great day to get better!

Blessed~

Good Morning, Lord.

I don’t remember dreaming at all.
Oh wait a minute- yes, now I do.

Every dream comes true when I’m with you.

I love how you come to me in our night sessions-
our secret rendezvous of souls.
I cherish those times as though they were an infinite supply of pure gold.

You quench my soul thirst and at the same time leave me hungry for more.
How could I possibly get enough of you?

It is your heart alone I adore.
You have molded your heart around me and within your chambers-your heartbeat- I am surrounded with Peace.

I am whole and complete.
Then there is nothing left.
No fear, worry, doubt or unrest.

Blessed~

“I will bless the Lord who has given me counsel;
My heart also instructs me in the night seasons.”
Psalm 16:7

Bullet Proof Shield

Posted in Uncategorized tagged , , , , , , , , , , at 3:20 pm by Broken & Brave

Bullet Proof Shield

Did you wear your bullet proof shield today? Did you cover your heart and head with scriptures so that everything you faced and everything you did and all you took in was filtered by the Lord first?

You have the power to command the attention of Heaven! God has given us everything we need to overcome obstacles, be healed from disease and walk out a mighty and magnificent destiny! But you’ve got to fight for what you want, because there is an entire world out there operating to take it from you!

This post is inspired by a conversation I had this past week with someone regarding their health struggles. As they valiantly fight I was encouraging and then I was getting ideas on how to help.

It got me thinking I needed to write a bullet proof shield to help them declare and believe what was possible. Your health, your identity, your promises and your destiny are yours! Fight for yourself so you can unite and equip with others.

2018 is going to be Pure GOLD!

I truly love you all…

💜Nicole

Prayer of Health & Healing:

Thank you, Lord, for the heavy price and sacrifice you paid as a ransom for my mind, body and soul.
It is you I adore.
I show my adoration to you by caring for my body, my spirit, my life.
I understand that I am not my own. (1 Corinthians 6:19-20)

I trust you to remind me and equip me to overcome with my eating, rest and exercise. I will not overindulge and I will make wise choices. I will not neglect to exercise my frame.
I know I will enjoy good health as you have promised (3 John 1:2)

Whatever I do I will honor you with everything I eat or drink. Remind me of this when I am tempted to dishonor you with my nutrition.
(1 Corinthians 10:31)

I will do all of this with a cheerful heart (Proverbs 17:22)
because your love is like medicine to me.
In all things I will be equipped and my arms strong for my tasks.
I will have no lack of energy or enthusiasm for healthy living.
I will be consistent, disciplined and fervent. (Proverbs 31:17)

I will enjoy the fruit of obedience and faithfulness as you guide with healing and rest.
I am secure and prosperous in all things.
(Jeremiah 33:6)

I will walk obediently in all you ask me to do and I receive my full inheritance, my full blessing of health and prosperity and protection. Just like Exodus 15:26 promises me.

I am whole.
I am healthy.
I am healed.

Amen!

Accomplished

Posted in Uncategorized tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 8:59 am by Broken & Brave

It is not uncommon for people to project their own struggles, fears, insecurities onto others. It is important to remember that we don’t all struggle the same or think the same. One man’s worries may be another man’s victory.

When I was in college I had a friend from High School who had dropped out of Junior College and began working full time. She had a great job and was making descent money, but her heart’s desire was to return to school and obtain a degree. She had tried to re-engage her academic pursuits a few times only to drop out again. She decided that she wanted to move in with me because in her mind, if she surrounded herself with what she desired she would successfully move in that direction. I had already three years of college under my belt and went to school with a full load while also working a part-time job to help support myself. So, I thought it was a wise idea for her and so I agreed and she moved to my college city, found herself a job and enrolled in a few classes at the neighboring junior college to the university I attended. I’d like to say she stayed the course and quickly advanced, but I can’t. It was a rough terrain for her to reframe her discipline and push through- but over time she did it and excelled in her academic pursuits and is now in a very specialized profession making excellent money and doing something she loves.

Surround yourself with what you desire to achieve or become.

That’s why unity is so key. We can all help each other Overcome. As a True Champion we become willing to place trust in our fellow man. We surrender absolute control and place confidence in others as we go…

Every relationship has propensity to bless your life in countless areas. One friend may excel at one thing while another friend does well at something else. If we hem ourselves together with the glue of loyalty and longevity there isn’t anything we can’t do!

Great things in store for you! God will bring you what you need to achieve every goal or aspiration on your journey. Remain dependent and faithful to Him and a Radiant Joy Journey will begin! These are exciting times we live in!

Nothing More

Posted in Inspirational, Prayer of blessing, true story tagged , , , , , , , , , , at 7:18 am by Broken & Brave

Nothing appeals to me more than the sound of your voice…except maybe when you draw close in my presence, of course.

How can it be you do this to me?
No one has EVER come close to filling my heart as you do.

Nothing compares to you.

You drip like honey over me.
You gather my mind, heart and emotions like a cluster of grapes. You alone effectively harness everything that is sweet in me.

Nothing compares to you.

You came in to my life quite unexpectedly.
You draw me to your waters and fill my soul with joy. I cannot hide.
I don’t want to hide.

Your breath…
Your words…
Your Presence…

The way you move and do the things you do- how could my heart possibly ever grow cold?
In your presence I feel so incredibly adored.
To behold you is to be held by you.

Nothing compares to you.

I love how you put your Arms around me.
You love me.
You protect me.
You watch over me while I sleep.
It is you who is there each morning to greet me.

You are the One who plants every flower in the garden called my heart.

Thank you.

When a heart is touched a life is changed and for this I am grateful.
I will never forget how you made me feel the day we first met.

Nothing compares to you.💜

There are different kinds of people with different kinds of intelligence. People who possess a high emotional quotient, a sensitive spirit and compassionate soul feel everything DEEPLY.

They experience deeply.
They care deeply.
They love deeply.

In fact, their capacity to give and receive love is breath taking in magnitude. When a heart so unique comes into contact with the Spirit of God it is quite outstanding. Extraordinary. Glorious. Beautiful…and altogether Lovely.
In that moment of connection the heart finds relief for it cries out, “Finally, release.”
Every ounce of pent up energy finds a house that can store a love like that. Talk about utter bliss.

Ever since this happened for me, I experience everything more brilliantly. When you feel deeply, you tend to walk through life giving to others more deeply than what can be reciprocated at such a level as you desire. This is of no judgement on others, but not everyone is wired the same. I am merely stating facts. So, over time, you (referring to people with this type of capacity) instinctively self protect and close that part of their heart down. The depth of it all goes to sleep. But when it becomes awake, there is a hunger nothing else can satiate. Talk about utter Bliss.
You never again want to miss.
Enraptured to the heart of God is a place I will forever live.

Nothing compares…

How many are walking around with their depth of capacity to love covered by a shroud of hard knocks and pain? Who will the Lord send to unveil the real and beautiful virtue of unbridled love and affection their heart contains?

Find your Bliss and cleave to it.
It will fill you completely and take up residence in your heart, mind, spirit and soul perfectly…like it was made to be there all along.
Your heart like a bird who finally finds its song.

You belong.

Prose of Praise-

Lord…
Jesus.
Faithful Holy Spirit.
Triune God.
I am Besotted by you.
I adore you.
I extol your heart and seek your breath upon me.
I know you could never be clumsy with my heart.
You are all things strong.
All things firm.
All things resilient and sure.
Yet, at the same time, you are easy and gentle and relentless in your pursuit of me.

Come to me.
Cover me with your feathers.
My life has no meaning or measure without you.

He is the forager of hope and remover of gloom. He always has time for you. He will always have room for you. He goes before you, surveys the scene, removes the weeds and the lesser things and prepares a bountiful harvest for you. He has a Garden full of Goodness for you. His tapestry is only made of silk and the finer things. Enormous is the wealth of heart and soul he is prepared to bring.

He is the deepest Lover of your Soul and he believes you are made of pure gold.

May this year, be a golden year.

Gold is costly.
Gold is lustrous and exclusive.
It is not readily available to everybody.
Gold is hard like a rock, yet able to become fluid and easy to handle when it is melted.
Gold has worth of glorious measure.

Arise from your golden slumber and enter the very chambers of God.
His plans are always the right plans.
