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 motherโ€™s womb.
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.”

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.๐Ÿ’œ

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.

Smelted

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.
I am completely in love with you.
I give you my day…
Help me to do with it as you wish for me. Amen

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.

The Secure Cure

Posted in Inspirational, Prayer of blessing tagged , , , , , , , , , , at 5:55 am by Broken & Brave

The Secure Cure

Being secure is the cure for everything that ails your heart.
Why do you battle?
Why do you fret and fear?
Do you now know…
Do you not understand
that to your life heaven has drawn near?
The very essence of your existence draws the attention of Heaven.
Your heart beating–
Compels the heart of God.
Just as a young child or love one might lay across your chest and your hearts beating can be felt, one to the other with limited distance between you-

So it is with God.

He is compelled.
He is stirred.
He is wooed to act on your behalf.
He offers Intimacy.
He offers his Divinity.
His Supreme Guidance helps you stay the course-
And his heart is yours…of course.

Do you not yet know or understand how costly the grace he placed within your hand?

Quickly…quickly, I say
Is the rush of the flame that has left your life changed.
You will never again be the same.
The Love of Heaven works itself into your heart like the breads leaven.
He feeds your soul and reminds you that you are more precious than rubies or gold.
You are his divine creation.
You have been created from eternal hope.
So be bold.

With a love like that–all of life is at your command because he holds you dearly by your hand. ๐Ÿ’œNicole

Secured and Treasured

I secured my laurel wreath crown and I ran into the Night…

When God makes you a promise He will rescue you from the moss and the dust.
Over your life he begins to dote and fuss…
You are a big deal to him.
You dawn a smile on his face and project an internal glow that brings radiance to his grace.

He equips then he sends us into the Night to face all that which is dark inside.

Our greatest courage comes when we look inwardly and recognize who we see–the real you, the real me.
We recognize and receive Truth.
This is when we become who we were purposed to be and take our first steps into Providence and Destiny.

He has selected for you a laurel wreath crown…
His crown is not the obvious crown.

It is not flashy or showy…
It is subdued.
It is not greedy or needy…
It is devoted.
A symbol of Mastery.
He loves you and comes toward you.

The Fountain has come and his heart is overrun with Pure pleasure for you.

Allow his Celestial Presence to cascade over you.
Let his veil brush your lips with destiny’s kiss and cover, protect and bless you.
You have been adorned in splendor.

It is in the Night we learn to grow our wings and discover true flight.
He is the Endless Rescuer of our soul.
He is a Mighty and Majestic Help Mate.

So when you face the Night.
Secure your wings tight.
Don’t wrestle the darkness–
Cut through it.

Through it you emerge on the other side Radiant and Captivating with Love’s Pure Light.

God bless your life.
Secure and treasured-
You are loved without measure.

Own the Night….

Bountiful ๐ŸŽ‰

Posted in Inspirational, Prayer of blessing tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 8:23 am by Broken & Brave

The Touch of your hand makes me glow.
The Touch of your hand makes me whole.

You, alone, satisfy the soul.

You are not a far off or dusty wasteland.
You drench me is Goodness.
You quiet my soul.
I am never left forlorn when I know your will and way is to walk beside me, O, Ancient of Days.

You satisfy me.

You curb my appetite for lesser things.
What a Joy and delight to know that as this New Year rings you are there to carry me across the threshold from the old to the new…just as a Groom who carries his Bride.
You are always by my side.

This alone helps me to know that I am completely blessed.
My heart and soul are at rest for the bounty of treasure your heart contains for me.

I can feel how much you adore me.

….I am so blessed.โค๏ธ

Sanctuary

Posted in Inspirational tagged , , , , , , , , at 7:52 am by Broken & Brave

May I enter in?
May I draw close to your Sanctuary?
For in your Garden resides the delight of my soul.
You delight me.
You tantalize my senses and stir my soul.

You are…

Rivers of tranquility flowing over me.
Garden of Hope, foliage lush and green bringing extensive moisture to everything.
You are the warmth of my day and the evening cool of shade.
There is no where to flee to escape you.

There is no possibility of hiding from you.
The Lover of my soul hunts me out.
You visit me in my sleep giving my mind dreams.
You bellow your Presence within the gates of my soul-letting me know you will never let me go.

I am in awe of you and that is why- with my pen- I honor and extol you.
I write you my love song of worship.
I express my love and deep need for your Sovereign Reign in my life.

There is none besides you.
There is none like you.
I am yours.
*****

True Worship comes from the heart, not the mind. God leads from the soul, not our reason. Learn to allow His Presence to ebb and flow and guide your path like a steady flow of Goodness. He will never forsake you.

Heavenly Distraction

The Anchor calls…
Draw near…
Do not break away.
Come closer.
Stay…

When you smile, it melts the Heart and Soul of Heaven.
His whispers are soft and he is ever careful with his words.
Breath of Heaven knows your heart best and knows exactly how to extol your soul.
He is a caresser of soul and the discovered of every blissful corner of your being.
He edifies and magnifies and floods the senses with his Majesty.

There is nothing like it.

Holy Intimacy cannot be explained~only experienced.

It happens in the quiet recesses of of the heart, the soul. The mind. The emotions. He quickens and threshes thick. It is real and vibrant and oh so personal–
Just as intimacy should be.
Your friendship with God is personal and there is security in this.
He loves no one else the way he loves you.
How extraordinary.
How special.
He created you so he could pursue and win you.
Breath of Heaven had a winsome way about him.
He knows how to be winsome to win some.
Has he won your affections?
Are you distracted or locked onto his affection?
Can you feel his presence in your life?
Can you feel him caress your cares until they vanish in his love and comfort?

There is nothing like him.

God takes pleasure in humanity and he desires we take pleasure back in him.

Lean back.
Delight yourself in him.
Allow him to lavish you in unbridled and Besotted love.
Shun every distraction that would pull you away.
Carve out a space in the moments of your day to refresh yourself and relieve yourself in him.

Bountiful Blessings are the heart of what he has to offer you.

His love is deep.
His love is vast and wide.
His love is spacious and thick.
His love is fiery.
~In the thick of it you will find refuge, pardon, strength and a temperance of soul that transfigured all into his Beauteous Image.

May God continually bless you with his solace and sweetness.
The more you receive it the more you will find he replenishes with more of it.

He’s always got more…

Rest well.

There is a God in Heaven who loves you beyond any love you have ever known. He is there with you now–
