Prayer of Peace & Protection for America

Posted in Inspirational, leadership, Prayer of blessing tagged , , , , , , , , , , at 7:16 am by Broken & Brave

I don’t think I’ve ever met anyone who got mad when I asked to pray for them. Even the most proud of persons can weep when someone genuinely cares for their well-being. Perhaps Lady Liberty needs our prayers?

I have written a prayer we can pray… for America and all of her gorgeous people…together.

Heart Strong

Grace—

It is heavy on my mind and heart that countless numbers of you are right now battling guilt, shame and un-forgiveness for yourself.

Forget about it! One breath of God is all it takes to wipe your stain away. Receive. Sometimes you still have to make things right with others, but God’s Grace once again is scandalous and his ability to restore and make like new is incredible. 

You are worthy.
You are loved.
You are joyful.
You are strong.
You are brave.

So take courage!
A tremendous amount of love has been invested in you!

You are an incredible gift. Yes, YOU! So receive for yourself the same beauty others see in you. You are exquisite. ~Nicole🤎

“You are the most excellent of men
    and your lips have been anointed with grace,
    since God has blessed you forever.” Psalm 45:2

Stolen Goods

Posted in Inspirational tagged , , , , , , , , , , at 7:43 pm by Broken & Brave

Have you ever had someone take something that was yours? It’s hard isn’t it? We feel violated and robbed of blessing. It feels a bit dirty even. Sometimes people break in and steal our property. And sometimes people steal our joy, our peace or our work. But honestly, we can find encouragement in the Word.

Turning the other cheek is hard.

The theft feels like a slap on the face, but God wants us to turn and offer up the other side as well?

Well—here’s my encouragement and reminder to anyone who feels any form of loss or violation…

Solomon, in all his splendor craved wisdom more than anything. God delighted in his desire and gave him wisdom and then added all the things the common man would have asked God for in the first place (fame, fortune, prestige, title). And with that wisdom he made a decision for two women fighting over a baby.

So when you feel violated or robbed or treated unfairly, remember—

The real Mother will always let the baby live.

Words to live by that add practical wisdom to almost any area of life. Hold tight. Your destiny didn’t need those cracker crumbs anyway!

What’s Your Type?

Posted in Devotional, health and wellness tagged , , , , , at 6:20 am by Broken & Brave

Just breathe. Just relax. Rest. Don’t you know proper rest is essential for proper recovery and immune health? All statements you may have heard before.

Our Parasympathetic Nervous System is our bodies way of regulating involuntary activities. It is a part of the Autonomic Nervous System and it tells our body what to do without our having to think about it. It just happens automatically. It says such things as “rest-and-digest” or “feed and breed”. This is because it is the system that tells us to relax and take it easy and it is also the system that stimulates sexual arousal.

The other part of the Autonomic System is the Sympathetic Nervous System. This system tells us to do the opposite. It’s a sort of “fight or flight” system.

Did you know that each individual can be prone to dependence on one or the other? It’s true. Individuals who have an ectomorphic body type (type I) tend to be more Sympathetic NS dependent giving them a long linear frame and ability to burn body fat and calories extremely well, sometimes too well. Endomorphic body types (type O) tend to store body fat, be more sedentary and struggle with a constant desire for food. These individuals tend to be Parasympathetic System (PNS) dominant. Those mesomorph (type V) body types tend to balance in the middle of the two systems and tend to posses a muscular frame and athletic build.

So have you determined which type you are?

We all have a type we wish we had or are drawn to. We all fit into one of these categories of types of body structures. But can I draw your attention to something deeper this morning?

Did you know you are God’s type?

We live in a world that is ever increasing in shallow and superficial focus and desires. We somewhere along the way strayed away from deeper things, stronger faith, healthy self image (because we weren’t all that entirely focused on our image to begin with). We once had plain and humble confidence in a Creator who created us to add value to the world around us, demonstrate gratitude and confidence in knowing all of life, well it isn’t about you, and that’s a good thing. How empty would life truly be if we knew we were only here for ourselves? I don’t know how many would truly enjoy lasting joy and edification with that sort of reality. Material success can be accomplished in this manner, but I’m not so sure the inside a heart of a man or woman could ever be content with this. There would always be a need for more. There would always be a lack of satisfaction.

So with all of that—don’t forget. God created you.

Heaven selected every detail about you, whether you are content with it or not. He likes the shape of your eyes, your body size and shape, your smile, your laugh and He cares about every aspect of you—even whether or not you can dance! He likes it all, every detail about you right down to every cell and system in your body. He designed you with great detail.

So if our bodies have such intricate design, don’t you think there was in fact a higher power who designed it? Seems all a little to advanced to be by chance, wouldn’t you agree? I know it takes faith to believe in God. But He believes in you after all. I am praying today He gives you an ounce of proof to prove to you how genuine His Love is for you. Trust me, an ounce of Him is all it will take for your heart to agree. That’s how rich and satisfying His Love truly is.

So whatever your type, even type O who may be on a diet right now, eat and drink deeply of Faith. It will satisfy and satiate, and man, you will feel great!

I pray Bold and Bountiful blessings over you today! ~Nicole

Something from Nothing

Posted in Devotional, Inspirational tagged , , , , , , at 7:03 am by Broken & Brave

is on the Throne and He still rolls stones! 3 days in a tomb locked behind stone, the Savior owned the keys to death, hell and the grave. It’s time for an overthrow of all things awful in your life. It’s time to rise! Grave clothes come off! You are a Radiant Bride!

And God will create for you, something out of nothing. 

Many Blessings, Nicole
