Declare it!

My God is Good! My God is Faithful! My God is both Just and Merciful simultaneously. My God is a Warrior. My God is Endearing. My God Prevails. My God loves… My God never forgets to count our benefits. My God can take the cost that we count as loss and turns it into something better. My God lavishes the soul with Hope. He equips every human who seeks His face with the ability to cope through difficult circumstances. My God has a special affection for humanity. He rejoices over us. His love is better than wine and I could be with him, drinking him in, all of the time. That is my God.

My God is the Author and Perfecter is my Faith and He drives a fierce pen wielded and glued to my hand. He is my Benefactor and the Master of my soul, the true King of my Heart. I hope my words of adoration might give your heart a jump start…

Last night the moon was outrageous. So gaze worthy. I adore moon gazing and I am blessed to live in the country where the city lights cannot hinder the true beauty the atmosphere brings.

I rejoice when I see a vibrant skyline as the sun begins to say good night. The night sky that looks like crystals of light beaming down to say hello. These are things that help my soul remain thankful and remember I am but a small star in the hands of a Universal Creator. But that moon last night, big and bold and showing off. As if it weren’t gorgeous enough, I was standing outside my dwelling staring at it when just in my eyes lines of vision a shooting star burst on the scene captivating my everything and shot across the night and burned away almost as quickly as it came. It’s all about timing with shooting stars. You don’t get to see them every day because they burn bright, but they burn fast and if your not looking right where it appears you miss it.

Beloved, nestle your heart in the chest of God today. Settle your cares in his bosom and leave them there. He is a tremendous source of comfort and contentment. It doesn’t matter what you endure, what tasks lie before you or what mistakes attempt to taint you. You are Holy in His sight. He wields a mighty staff of protection and comfort and reminds us heart, mind and soul that everything is going to be alright. Take Joy and Comfort. He is the ultimate lover and He prefers to reside in the heart of His Bride over any palace on a hill. Be soothed today, be soothed. Shine bright, invade the Night. For when we shoot like a star for him, we burn bright, but are promised to never burn out~we remain Eternal. We do this by keeping Him as the center of our eye.

Keep your eyes on the Promise and you will see vividly.

“To Him who made the great lights, For His lovingkindness is everlasting: The sun to rule by day, For His lovingkindness is everlasting, The moon and stars to rule by night, For His lovingkindness is everlasting.”

I hope I’ve encouraged you. Mine are not shallow thoughts or feelings. It is my goal, my purpose, to stir people to a deeper level, tapping into the depths of themselves not previously known. You have so much more! Let me inspire you to reach deep within and discover the true beauty of who you were created to be.

I see you…not the you others want you to be…but how God created you, Lovely.

Be the Light…

Last weekend our power went out.

So what did my boys do?…Each went for the light on their phone or a flashlight. The youngest and I played cards on my bed.

The power was out for a good hour or more and they laughed and giggled and played with the shadows from the lights in our phones. I thanked the Lord for this short lived inconvenience. It gave them time together they probably really needed. But oh how we all celebrated when the lights came back on–we hadn’t eaten and I needed to cook dinner!


There isn’t a soul under heaven that does not need the light. The light brings us heat and warmth, the sun nourishes the earth and us humans with its glorious rays full of vitamin D. The plants and foliage grow more abundantly after the rains and then into the light. When it is light people are less depressed and their mood is bright. We even change our clocks in most of the nation twice a year just so we can maximize the light!

In fact,

the Light and Love of Heaven are indispensable in your life.


Indespensable-Absolute necessary; essential. Obligatory; unavoidable.

You need it. Your soul craves pure light. When we learn something new or become aware to a new level we are said to be “enlightened”. There was an entire age in history called the “Age of Enlightenment”.

Light is good.

Allow me to speak merely a morsel of Light and Life into you…

You are the Light in the lives of others. You may not realize it, you may not feel it or believe it, but it’s true.

You have a sparkle all your own that is like the Mysteries of Heaven breaking through. Others are relieved by the help you bring. Some look forward to seeing you, even if they never tell you. Many wouldn’t have a day quite the same without a morsel of your presence in it. Don’t you see how needed and necessary you are? Life might be a bit dimmer, less glimmer, less hope, less optimism without you in it. You may be what keeps others keeping on and holding on to the Discovery of Hope through our Lord.

Hope looks brilliant on you!



So keep holding on and pressing on!
Whatever darkness you life may currently hold…it will fade away just as my kids found out last weekend. Besides, how would the world around you come to discover the enormous capacity for love, life, hope and light that dwells within you if there were no night sky to backdrop your radiance? Cascade the skies and draw open tired and weary eyes. Heaven smiles down and a few other people, too.

In you, it is quite True…heaven takes Delight. So keep holding tight and press through the Night. Everything is going to shake out just right–just wait and see! ~Nicole
“I will both lie down in peace, and sleep;
For You alone, O Lord, make me dwell in safety.”

Treasure Hunting🎁

Posted in Uncategorized tagged , , , , , , , , , , , at 7:22 am by Broken & Brave

Are you finding your Joy? Do not be burdened by such a question, but make it a treasure hunt. For those who find True Joy find a lasting Treasure. Do you play Elf on a shelf with your kids? I bet it’s fun to find creative ways to hide and seek it out with your children. The same can be with Joy. Abba Father is like a playful Father, too! He isn’t a rigid Patriarch in the sky. Press your heart into His and seek Him out and watch and see how many clues to your Joy He will give to thee! Like a good book you can’t put down, It will leave you hungry for more!

Merry Christmas. You are a special gift to those around. There is NO ONE else like you. Do not hold back  with your heart, your time, your love and friendship.

The more you give the more Joy for all! ~Nicole

(It’s difficult to read, but my shirt actually says SHINE on it😉) Shine On✨,Beloved…
