I woke early this am with the words…a strand of three cords can not be easily broken…rolling about in my head.

God is like a fighter pilot going off to battle to war against every negative thing that comes against your heart and soul. He guards over you like a buried treasure. Others see the exterior, the package and the wrapping so to speak. But God sees beneath all of that to something much deeper…the real gift and measure of his pleasure. He sees your heart, mind and soul. So he goes to war and famishes the wants and desires of Adversities appetite by refusal. He thwarts every wicked scheme the Enemy of your Soul prepares, and he defeats it in advance before it has any real teeth.

Sometimes we feel the sting or prick of being bit in life-but it’s got no real bite. When we allow our Captain to be our Guide we survive. We escape. The ravages of adversities flames may lick at us, but they cannot have us.

Yoke your heart to the One who is Faithful, Stoic, Fierce, Friendly, Gentle, yet full of Valor. He is strategic in all of plans and purposes for your life. Tie your heart to him. Anchor your Hope. Designate your faith. Release your heart with abandon to his grace and allow love to take its proper place.

He will Restore every broken or dead branch with new life. He will surround you with supplemental strength and add his kisses to your life. He will hold you from the inside and it will be better than any hug you’ve ever had– for he knows how to reach in deep and fondle the soul of every man. His love is deep. He will lay a foundation and structure a few strands of longevity with others who are willing to walk the path beside you. God can do whatever he wants, but he tends to want to see us do crazy amazing things and he plants vision in those around you who are equipped to help see you through. But more than anything else–he is with you.

Whatever you face today. Whatever you are going through. Whatever seeks to devour you…you have no reason to fear, worry or feel alone.

God is in your corner.
Rise up.
Take your day.
Be brave.
You are not alone.
💛

“Though one may be overpowered by another, two can withstand him. And a threefold cord is not quickly broken.”

Ecc. 4:12

“Charming Gardener”

“Let us be grateful to people who make us happy, they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.”

~Marcel Proust

When I see a beautiful garden I often think of all the work that went into planting it and keeping it weed free. People are much the same as a garden. Healthy, secure and strong relationships require much tenderness, love and care. People must be nurtured just like a garden.

Your heart is a garden to house your soul…just like a green house full of moisture and beautiful foliage is a heart fully yielded to the Master Gardener. He loves you -heart and soul- and would never do anything to hurt you. It matters not the adversity you’ve known in life, whether great or small, He was there with you through it all because of his great love for you.

The Banner over you is Abiding and Loyal Love. Bask in His Goodness today. ~Nicole

Heartbeat of a Winner

Posted in Uncategorized tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 6:20 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
