Unwrap Yourself In This Love

Posted in Inspirational, Prayer of blessing tagged , , , , , , , at 6:43 am by Broken & Brave

My pen is really just an ongoing love letter to heaven. My pen is also a love letter from heaven to humanity. So let’s just start this right off–

You are truly and earnestly loved. Perhaps this is difficult for you to grasp or receive. Yes, I understand, pure love can be very hard to receive. Most have little experience with it. But when it comes~do you feel that? When it comes it kind of disturbs, but in a way you kind of like. Things inside of your heart and soul begin to move around. Your mind tries to grasp it, but it cannot. Because Love happens first in the heart. Then, with enough adequate love, it begins to shift the mind and cause it to align with the Love that has come inside. Yes, you discern in the very bellows of your being it’s uniqueness and it’s flow…well, it’s a home you’ve never before known. And it will soothe your soul like the tranquility a large body of water can bring.

“Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.”
James 1:17

“Lord, Let my words be Christ’s potent drug that reaches into and emerses every narrow crevice of man’s heart. That we might all be intoxicated for Him and in Him…the ONE, holy and true. Amen.”

There really aren’t any words to describe my heart for God and the depth of my friendship with him. However, I have agreed with the Almighty to try to convey everything I feel, everything I hear, everything I know through the one vehicle I have..my pen (which has been and will always be directly connected to my heart).

I know with God’s guidance and help I can effectively love an entirely wounded and limping Bride. I aim to love hard with long-suffering that those who ache, those who mourn, those who fail to find relief for their every emotional, spiritual and physical discomfort would give glory to God for I came bearing relief.

He is a God full of good gifts. He delights to watch your life unfold, just like a Father who watches His child unwrap their gift.

You are a gift. Allow your heart to become wrapped up in Him. He loves you.

From the Other Side of My iPhone

Posted in true story tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 5:55 am by Broken & Brave

Hi! 👋🏼

…From the Other Side of My iPhone

Let me take a moment to introduce myself. Whether you’ve been following me for days, weeks, years or have only just discovered this blog- I will begin as if we are only just beginning together.

Together.

Together sounds good doesn’t it?

Together sounds strong.

Together has a layer of supplemental strength that can’t go wrong.

There is infinite power in together.

My name is Nicole. I am not an anonymous blogger. I’m not using a pen name. This is me, who I am, laying it out there in vulnerability hoping to use the unique and creative gift God has given me to fetch hearts and love on them lavishly.

My goal is to SPARK hope, FUEL the flames of your PASSIONS, desires, wants, dreams and interests. I may also use this page to promote things I love and believe in. Some of which I get paid for, which is just the added blessing because I am not money motivated, but we all know we all need to earn a living. My ultimate goal here is about my giving and increasing the value of your life and gratitude that your time reading anything I had to write was time well spent.

I’ve been blogging since 2012 just as a sort of online journal. I have been a writer all if my life. I wrote my first “book” in the fifth grade and I’m pretty sure it was about a ponies life. I’ve always enjoyed writing, but never knew where it could go. Never explored writing for more than just a hobby. But as I aged I began seeing real fruit in my life in any area I had opportunity to write. In school I excelled on any exam or project that required the use of my pen. I had a foundation of confidence from a proven track record here. I think a defining moment or rite of passage for me occurred my senior year of college. I had a female professor pull me aside and speak words into me that sparked a new level of awakening inside. She was a creative writing instructor in the English department and all she really said was that I was a gifted writer.

Those words of affirmation stick with me even today. Encouragement breeds courage! And that’s what I intend to bring you everyday-encouragement for your courage for whatever you life may entail.

Everywhere you turn someone’s got a blog page or self publishing their book. There’s a lot of competition out there for your time and attention. Here’s a few reasons why I think my page is different.

⭐️The goal of my page is to invigorate and empower YOU. All else is the gravy only added to enhance flavor, pleasure and experience. For example, I am a fitness trainer and I have a background in nutrition. If I write about health, fitness or tips from my own life hacks or my favorite fitness toys and gadgets—it’s like gravy intended to increase the flavor and function and pleasure of your own life. Do you see my little analogy and what I mean by its design?

🎯 My target audience is everyone. Anyone breathing with a heartbeat deserves to be loved. I aim to measure it out in ample portions. The fuel of the love measured via my pen comes from heaven. My relationship with the One, my God, is my love and this communion of soul makes me whole and it ebbs, flows and has a presence in some level in everything I write. I pray you receive some of that love and comfort to. Then you may stress less and have added benefit of comfort in this hectic world we live in.

📝I am a poet. Don’t plan to make money as a poet, but you never know. I occasionally write posts that stir the soul in pure creative writing and prose. I hope you enjoy those as well.

♥️Time is something that once gone is gone for good. So allow me to refresh you, bless you, charge you and inspire you. I often have people share with me that they use my blog as their morning “pick me up” or devotional. A spark to begin their day.

I begin my every morning with a Spark of my own. Here’s how I do it:

I read quotes, scriptures, and engage my mind in meditative reflection on my Sovereign. My connection to heaven may include listening to worship songs, and writing my poems and adorations. I drink a Spark by AdvoCare. It’s a nutrition beverage for mental focus. It’s like high def for the brain. It feeds my mind the nutritional neuroactives required for enhanced focus and clarity. It’s better than any cup of coffee because it last about four hours with no crash. And it’s low in sugar and calories. This right here is one of those gravy points of interest I was describing above. Spark is something that has added value to the life of this busy Mom to five children. Yep, five. So if it helped me, maybe it can help you.

I do get paid for helping you there if you purchase through my website, so alright with that already. It’s my pleasure and thank you! Link at the bottom of the page for those wanting more information and energy! If you try it I’d really like to hear from you how you like it. It’s my pleasure to serve you!

So here we are. This is me, on the other side of my iPhone. Though we use the cloud, no clouds here. I mean to be crystal clear. My intentions are to:

🔺Serve

🔺Support

🔺Encourage

And have some fun along the way.

Because I am getting more serious about advancing my writing and reach, know that my new website is under construction “as we speak”. So if I bump any corners along the way as I grow my page-I am grateful for your grace. We all know that we learn best sometimes in the simple “do”.

Today’s take away:

Watching someone else have courage and persevere encourages me to have courage and persevere.

Be encouraged. Persevere. Someone may be watching you as well—gaining courage to persevere.

You are a Champion!

~Nicole

Try Spark!😃
