Cherished

Quiet your heart…
Rest your soul…
There is a God in Heaven who loves you beyond any love you have ever known. He is there with you now–
In your car, in your home and every other place you could dare to roam.

Accept His quiet disposition, love and bountiful Grace. Accept His gift of love to you this holiday season.

…wise men still seek Him.

Roar

Posted in Devotional, Uncategorized tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 6:54 am by Broken & Brave

We don’t always feel brave, even when conditions surrounding us demonstrate we are acting in bravery.

We don’t always feel like our Faith is Strong, even when we are boldly stepping out in Faith.

We don’t always feel like we are living or encouraging well, even when people around us seem to draw to the moisture we offer.

If this is you today or if it will be you in the future or has been you before, then this post is waiting for you at the door. Cross the Threshold and step in. Allow a Joyous Journey of Heart and Soul to begin. Flourish in your God Given Authority. He holds the Master Key to everything and it is yours.

Have you ever observed a Crescent Moon? The moon is beautiful…the way it captures the light of the sun during the thick of night. When you focus on it and study it you can see beyond the shadow to the whole of the moon.

This is how God is betrothed to you. He always sees past the shadow to the depth of your soul. He knows you are more than any feeling, thought or circumstance. He is faithful to guide your Path.

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? ~Nicole

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!

Edified?

Posted in Devotional, Uncategorized tagged , , , , at 6:26 am by Broken & Brave

This is a portion of a text I received yesterday from a woman who is in her own zone, breaking the mold, exploring and realizing her own potential as she helps others. She is finding her purpose through service. The serving of others. But not just any service, the service God is calling her to do. God has something unique for each of us to do.

When your heart and soul are edified you come alive. You know in your heart what to do, what you are meant to do. It’s like a quickening of the soul from the Lord guiding you and encouraging you from within. It is a driving force that nothing can compare to and nothing can describe. When you feel it you come alive. You can’t explain it- you have to experience it.

In life there are many things that can bring enjoyment. There are many things that can “drive” our zeal. But the settled heart of the inner man or woman is all of those things and at the same time in a place of content rest. With that, you can’t help but have success. Be Strong. Live Strong. Be Edified and the Lord shall be Glorified. ~Nicole
