To be physically strong, you must do physically strong things.
To be spiritually strong you must do spiritually strong things.

These are both two different things-
yet, they are connected and can be the same thing.

“Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil.” Eph. 6:11

Never lose your Hope.

Sometimes even when you are trying to do the right thing, wrong things happen. Tis true for everyone. Do not become discouraged in your efforts to do well.

Finish Strong.

The only people who fail are those who quit. So if you don’t quit, you win. Win what? Well, that depends, but the prize is never about “beating someone” unless it’s an athletic event. Winning is about personal growth, discipline, expanding personal potential.

Winners know how to manage their complaints. They understand that negativity will sabotage your own ability to persevere. So, instead of recapping past bad experiences in fear of their reoccurrence, recap your miracles and declare the reoccurrence of the good! God means for you to win! So don’t quit!

“Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance.” James 1:2-3

Finish Strong.

God knew how your life would look all along. He’s got you!

When you are in the world-but not of it-you will feel the pressures all around. Ah, but God, He will give Grace to rise above it. Beautiful.

God causes my heart to marvel every single day.

YOU have the brave heart as that of a lion; the absolute ROAR of the Father ignites in your soul. Rise up Champion! For you, Gods got MORE! Do you believe it? How much is an abundance anyway?

Follow your heart, it has instinct. Take courage, dreams have lofty price tags. Follow your path, it is your own.

Nothing will be impossible for you…
So go ahead and ROAR!

Heart of a Champion

Posted in Uncategorized tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , at 6:37 am by Broken & Brave

To Champion a heart is not about how we feel, but it is always about how we plan to make others feel.

I think that’s pretty awesome!

“These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have Peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”

John 16:33

Bathe your heart in thanksgiving and perfume your soul with Hope. It will give off the most pleasing aroma that makes the world want to know!

People all around us are desperate for Hope and desire freedom from depression or sadness of heart. They long for True Peace, but far to many are eluded by it.  Pay attention and see who God has maybe sent you to encourage! You may just possess just the right amount of blessing that adds flavor to the lives of others like a tantalizing dressing to the fruits of the spirit in this life!

Rise up and count yourself blessed!

God will give Himself no rest until He sees you through all that puts your heart, mind and soul to do. He sees the stellar Champion within you.

There is no greater Champion Builder than God Himself! He is with you, encouraging you as you go.

So rise up, Champion, and take this day! …

Its yours!

Winner’s Circle

Posted in Devotional, Uncategorized tagged , , , , , at 7:20 am by Broken & Brave

You are a Winner!

Champion does not mean first place-first prize.

A Champion is an ardent defender of purpose and people. God is your defender. He is ardent, unwavering, in his devotion to humanity. You count on him to do what only he can do and he will do it for you. You can trust him! Many times we SAY we trust him, but then we continue to take care of everything ourself. We believe he will bless our effort and that’s the extent of our trust. But what about trust that reaches beyond borders into unchartered waters and He alone is your compass or map? This is an entirely different trust zone.

You never go alone. You can count on him to help you win. Winning is about overcoming all that holds you back within so you can go out and help everyone around you. Glorious! ~Nicole

“When you call, the Lord will answer. ‘Yes, I am here,’ he will quickly answer.”

Isaiah 58:9
