All of life is a message.
What is yours saying?
All of life is a song.
What is yours singing?
All of life if full of opportunity.
Are you taking any chances?

The Kingdom of God does not come by observation…

One of the greatest achievements for the Christian life is to live a Spirit lead life. Being lead by the Spirit is not easy. You will experience difficulty and immense spiritual warfare when you choose and decide to abide in your stride and walk faithfully at the Lord’s side as He guides you to Rivers of Refreshment. You will encounter great difficulties for the Spirit lead Believer is the Enemy of Heavens greatest threat outside of the Almighty himself.
But if you can overcome…and you can.
If you can dig deep and press through the ravenous terrain.
If you can trench through the muck and the mire and get to the other side…
Not only will you possess a life that completely inspires, but you will personally receive God’s great reward for Faithfulness and obedience.

The Spirit lead life will challenge you. You will permanently move and live outside of your comfort zone. It is a narrow road. Unfortunately, few choose it so it can also be a lonely road. But you never go alone. The Almighty HE is the most stable, able supplemental strength you could ever ask for. He goes, too, right beside you. So go ahead…

Live Brave!

Everything worth having in life requires work. Requires effort. Your life may be “good” on a scale of “Good, Better, Best”. Take actions steps today toward living your BEST life! Finish Strong!

Does anything you’ve read that I’ve said speak to you? Are you facing battles you don’t understand or mountains too ominous to defeat on your own?

You are not alone.
You do not go it alone.
God cups your heart in His hands and He makes no demands.
He just want to comfort you today.

“The LORD said to me, “You have seen correctly, for I am watching to see that my word is fulfilled.”
Jeremiah 1:12

Shalom. May the Peace of God stir the Heavens and pour out a delightful portion of Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness, Kindness, Thanksgiving, Tenderness and Resilient Strength that supplies for your every need. He is like the almond tree in Jeremiah 1:12. The Hebrew word, shoked, also called the “Awake Tree” hastens. The Lord is awake and watching over you. He is not dormant in your situation. He has Hidden Treasures awaiting you and He will bring forth the accelerated blessing.

Open your eyes…
Be awakened, too.­čĺŤ


“But The Lord stood with me and strengthened me, so that the message might be preached fully through me…”

Suit Up!

Posted in Uncategorized tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , at 6:38 am by Broken & Brave

People work, strive, plan, creating and attempting to create something every human soul craves…security.
We put money aside for retirement. We save. We budget and bargain shop stretching our dollars as far as they will go. We buy insurance for every imaginable detail of life.

But as long as you live you will need spiritual security. You will need your armor. Life is full of the unexpected. We don’t live expecting bad things or troubles to come, but we know we live in an imperfect world. We know better than to fantasize about a pseudo-eutopia. When we place our security in the right place, the correct Source, we know we are protected.

Wait for the Lord, behave honorably, never lose hope, maintain courage. To fear is to doubt God. Trust Him. Steadily offer your heart, mind, body, soul to the true and secure anchor for it all. Bonafide child of God. What are you so worried for anyway? Never give up! This is what it means to truly live by faith. You possess past grace, present grace and there is future grace for you as well. Grace is not just God’s favor and protection, it is also him causing good things to happen for you. He brings the blessings to you. So suit up soldier and relax in his Grace! He’s got you. ~Nicole

“Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God…”

All of Me…

“Behold, I…will reveal unto them the abundance of peace and truth.”

Jeremiah 33:6


True peace comes in the presence of a soul that is completely entangled about and revolves around the endless love of Heaven.

This is the word on my heart this morning. My soul paralleled in Hope. Dwelling…abiding…pleasing my soul with His Pleasure.

Do not be discouraged when you face trials of many kinds. It could just be God’s instrument to captivate you. The heart is big, very big, grand in capacity.

God wants all of it.

He wants all of your heart so He can move all of himself in. He wants to reside in your heart at the deepest levels.

Yield to His lead as He tugs at your need. He just wants all of you…

I find this thought incredibly lovely and full of God’s Grace and Comfort.

What does it mean to give all of ourselves  to God? It means He gets first place first prize. All our plans line up with his. We are full of truth. We speak truth and we walk it out in our day to day life. We hold nothing back for ourselves. God gets everything, the first fruits of ourselves. Then we let Him decide what abundance we receive in return. We allow God to decide how He provides no matter what the Provision looks like. We yield.

Most people don’t like yielding. Most people like to be in control. Sometimes consciously and often times unconsciously. They become fearful when they don’t have the handle on situations or outcomes.

This is a trust issue.

To have more in God’s economy each person must get to a place where they trust whole heartedly. If it breeds suspicion, it isn’t God. This doesn’t always mean we throw out God’s plans, but a deceiving spirit will try to cause suspicion to confuse God’s plans. Be wise. Suspicion is rooted in a Spirit of Fear. The Spirit of Fear has friends, it never likes to travel alone. It is frequently accompanied by confusion and doubt. Demonic principalities…when you study them…you will see they often congregate in groups of three. Fear is often present for any to begin. Fear is like the burglar who gets his toe in the crack of an open door to ┬ákeep you from shutting it tight and he rests there a while for when your guard is down and then invites his other friends to go in and do some damage.

The more we guard our heart, sweep it clean, the more we have room for God to reside at the greatest capacity.

How is your capacity to receive?

A fearful heart commonly shuts everything out, especially people. You may find it difficult to have long term relationships. The relationships you do have, for the most part, are only surface. You may have trouble allowing people into your heart for fear of being rejected, hurt, or abandoned…so you keep them out all together. This is not what the Lord means by a guarded heart.

Allow God to linger in your soul. Go ahead, open the door and let God in. He is the Way, the Truth, the Life. He will take the life you have and give it a new luster and shine, hope and joy, pleasure and peace. You will wonder why you didn’t let him in sooner. God is like a most faithful friend. In His admiration of your soul He doesn’t bend.

He is Advocate Almighty.
