Warrior

It is either in you…or it isn’t.

In the end, the deepest passion, rooted in absolute valor may be planted within One who doesn’t “look” the part.

ONE.

“Out of every one hundred men, ten shouldn’t even be there, eighty are just targets, nine are the real fighters, and we are lucky to have them, for they make the battle. Ah, but the one, one is a warrior, and he will bring the others back.”

There is a Warrior within you.

Life is an incredible journey, not one grand occasion, but a collection of moments to be treasured, decisions to be made and opportunities to be discovered. Seize each day, for it is a new day and so much rich opportunity is there to be found if we only dare to break the mold of the mundane, the commonplace, the ordinary. Don’t you know you are anything BUT ordinary!

Uncommon are the Warriors and they are always uniquely groomed in uncommon and unlikely circumstances so God can demonstrate how effectively He means to use them for Holy Combat.

You are girded and equipped with everything you need to succeed. He will raise your hands as Moses’ hands were raised to praise by those God has placed around you. (Exodus 17:12, 13)

Praise God for His Goodness. Hunger for his Power.

“for our gospel did not come to you in word only, but also in power and in the Holy Spirit and with full conviction; just as you know what kind of men we proved to be among you for your sake.” 1 Thes. 1:5

Your desire for more of Him will not be denied. The Warrior within is a zealous and stoic kind.

The Bride of Christ is dressed pristine, pure and white, but His Bride is also a Warrior.

Do not be discouraged.
Don’t give up.
Look up and give a shout of praise.
You are Heavenly Made.
Perhaps God sees strength in you you don’t even know about yet?

“Fight the good fight for the true faith. Hold tightly to the eternal life to which God has called you, which you have confessed so well before many witnesses.” 1 Tim. 6:12

Resilient

You are not the person you were yesterday.

You are not defined by your reality…
You are defined by your perceptions of that reality.

Life is driven by choices.

Every day can be your BEST and most BLESSED day activated with choices to change.

Did you know that your body is entirely made up of collagen? You have collagen everywhere. Collagen is what makes your skin firm and elastic. It does the same for your tendons, ligaments and it lines internal organs such as your heart. We lose 1% of our collagen every year after the age of 25.

Our bodies may be slowly on the decay, but our hearts, minds or spirit can grow more vigorous with time! Our drive to live our best version of our life is encapsulated with a mind that has been set right.

Spent some time visiting with a friend yesterday who just competed on an extreme obstacle course reality show. He blew through all the competition, but at the ultimate moment of climax he fell. He failed. He didn’t prevail in what he set out to do. Or did he? God’s mercy kept him from any major physical harm–it was a big fall. It has been a joy to watch how he transitioned from it all and has positioned himself for the greater within. He didn’t get defeated. He got up, testified to God’s Grace and is now planning some extreme climb up a ridiculously large mountain.

Have you fallen? Have you failed? Are you fearing what unknown may lie ahead because today seems a little ominous or dark? Have you clung to the trail God put you on? Hold tight, Dear One-you shall prevail. God’s got grander mountains still for you to climb and even higher you will rise.

Though in life we have problems, set backs and storms, God is constructing it all for your best self, best and most blessed version of your life. There is intense vigor in you still! Rise up, wipe the tears from your face, dust off the discouragement that may be trying to cling to you and press!
You are loved and blessed.

Get ready for your BEST.

“Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all.So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.”

2 Corinthians 4:16-18

Life is like a canvas–
Paint something good.

The Secure Cure

The Secure Cure

Being secure is the cure for everything that ails your heart.
Why do you battle?
Why do you fret and fear?
Do you now know…
Do you not understand
that to your life heaven has drawn near?
The very essence of your existence draws the attention of Heaven.
Your heart beating–
Compels the heart of God.
Just as a young child or love one might lay across your chest and your hearts beating can be felt, one to the other with limited distance between you-

So it is with God.

He is compelled.
He is stirred.
He is wooed to act on your behalf.
He offers Intimacy.
He offers his Divinity.
His Supreme Guidance helps you stay the course-
And his heart is yours…of course.

Do you not yet know or understand how costly the grace he placed within your hand?

Quickly…quickly, I say
Is the rush of the flame that has left your life changed.
You will never again be the same.
The Love of Heaven works itself into your heart like the breads leaven.
He feeds your soul and reminds you that you are more precious than rubies or gold.
You are his divine creation.
You have been created from eternal hope.
So be bold.

With a love like that–all of life is at your command because he holds you dearly by your hand. 💜Nicole

You are a great reason for God to get up in the morning. He’s got you on His mind all through the night and He never tires of proving how easy it really can become to trust in his love.

Everything you need to succeed at anything-whatever is in your heart to do-GOD has equipped you to get up and go! You’ve got this! His heart for you is to give you more.
Enjoy your day! ~Nicole

“Blessed are those who trust in the Lord and have made the Lord their hope and confidence.”
