Poetic Prose of Praise: My Father’s Garden

Posted in Uncategorized tagged , , , , , at 7:30 am by Broken & Brave


My Father is a Gardener and oh how my Garden he does keep.

He nestles himself—
Heart and Soul with my petals.
He reaches through my stem until he gets to the root.
The roots are the very essence of who I am.

I love how I’ve been planted in his garden.
There is no other garden where I would like to be.
Here in his chambers I am free to be me.
He is the key that unlocks the goodness in me.

He is Master Gardener.
He knows exactly how much water I need.

Saturate me.

He is Master Gardener.
He understands the perfect amount of attention and sunshine I need, complimented with the right amount of shade and coupled with a little extra room to breathe.

Satisfy me.

In my Father’s Garden are many rooms. He has a home carved and secure for me.
Grafted in to His Tree called All Things Lovely.

In His Arms I long to be.
In His Arms I love to be.

I am secure.
I am free.

I am a flower in my Father’s Garden.
He hand picked me.🌺

Prayer of Prose

Lord, Sweet and Precious Savior. Water my Garden. Give me moisture from Heaven—for by your Spirit I am refreshed and Renewed. You are the glue that holds me together. You are the fertilizer that nourishes me to the root. You planted seeds of hope in the deepest parts of me. You lead me and caused me to explore and find the floor of my heart—causing me to discover the depths within.

I am quieted by the noise of your waterfall. Cascade over me. I am a Bloom in your Garden, grafted into your Tree carefully and intentionally.

How grateful I am, Lord, that you picked me. Amen

Some days all we can do is praise and I think that’s just how it’s meant to be. Our hearts whole focus on the One who died for me. He died for you, too.

“You did not choose Me but I chose you, and appointed you that you would go and bear fruit, and that your fruit would remain, so that whatever you ask of the Father in My name He may give to you.” John 15:16

Warrior of Worship

Posted in Inspirational, Prayer of blessing tagged , , , , at 8:14 am by Broken & Brave


Follow your heart my dear-it has courage. Drink deep of Heaven-it will nourish and sustain you. Take action steps of faith. There are worn and weary soldiers who need your strength and faith. And don’t forget to worship.

Spend some time today thanking God for every incredible gift you’ve ever received. It won’t make God less aware of your very real needs. Thank Him for always blazing the trails before us. He is a good God. He’s been good to us. He has been better to us than we have been to him. Bless Him. Thank Him.

Allow Goodness and Mercy to follow you all the days of your life. Amen.

The Anchor and steadfast guidance of Holy Spirit is your key to victory.
Rest in his Grace. He’s already taken care of every detail, even the tiniest details. Rest. Be blessed. Allow Heaven to lavish a bountiful harvest upon you. All ripe fruit and tender meat and green leaf. Pure exhortation is like a well balanced and nutrient dense meal.


When God is on the rise in our life and as He prepares to draw us in-He will stir our hunger, one way or another.

“Then she arose with her daughters-in-law to return from the country of Moab, for she had heard in the fields of Moab that the Lord had visited his people and given them food.”

Heaven Made

Posted in Uncategorized tagged , , , , , , , , , , at 3:19 pm by Broken & Brave

I have been given an invitation to write.

The writing comes from somewhere deep inside of me.
I am like an evergreen tree.
I do not wither or wilt.
Despite storms of life or scorching heat–
The moisture still comes to me,
Keeping my leaves green, my bark tough, thick, resilient, yet ever soft to the touch because of the water I contain.

Living Water is what touches my frame.
My roots are like shoots that tangle and thread beneath the ground that I tread.
Fingers in the garden searching for more, they burrow beneath the soil where I have found pure gold.

Be careful with your life.
It is your most precious commodity-
And it is precious indeed.

The water of heaven cascades down creating flowers on the ground.
And the earth remains STILL.

Drink Deep.
Water yourself.
Nurture your soul, your mind, your flesh.

There is a Glorious song about you-
I’ve heard it sung in Heavens Rooms.
The Father of Life would like to see you watered, too.

You are an evergreen with tender shoots.
Press your fingers down.
Penetrate the ground.
There is moisture in their caverns.
Heaven came down to create in you a Glorious Bloom.
Make room…
Make time…
This is a Beautiful Life.

Poetic prose written by Nicole McBride on this day, May 31,2018.

I spend time in the garden. As I am there I frequently have tea. Then I drink deeply from the wells of a Living King. I carve out and designate time in the afternoon to visit him.

I am thirsty. So I drink.
He is Gentle. So I respond.
I worship, then I listen, then I experience…

And then I write.

I am a Tender Garden.
I hold a pen and I’ve been invited to write.💜

You Are Known

Posted in Uncategorized tagged , , , , , at 3:58 pm by Broken & Brave

You are the Shelter to the Shelterless.
You are the Comfort to those without comfort.

His love is like a washing of a wandering soul.
You have not been alone.
He has been beside you from day one–
Constructing, building, wiring your very DNA.
Knowing every breath you’d take.
Knowing every path, move and every decision.
He knows all.
He has been there in it all.

Good or bad, your behavior is not as relevant to Him as the pleasure He takes in knowing you.

You are Known.

Come to be known in a deeper way.
Deep calls to deep.
He even weighs and measures abounding love over you as you sleep.
His love is Good Medicine.

Whatever ails you-
He is there.
He is going to handle it with care.
He is your Shelter.
He is your Comfort.
He is your Supporter,
Your Way Maker,
Your Day Breaker at the end of even the darkest of Nights.

Hold tight, Beloved.
Come to be Known.

Beautiful Savior

Posted in Inspirational tagged , , , , , , , , at 4:36 pm by Broken & Brave

I’m here, Lord, your daughter…
Sweetly singing songs with my pen.
Ever grateful that you are my friend.
Oh, how I cherish things Heaven made.

How can I sing for you?
How can I praise you?
What melody adequate enough to make your heart sway?

You are Beautiful…
Beautiful Savior.

You are Wonderful…
And you take my breath away.
Fearfully-Wonderfully made.
Beautifully Broken-
My heart’s been marinating and soaking in your care, your comfort, your love–your everything.
From the stronghold of your Arms I can do anything.

Thank you for your embrace.
My smile cannot erase because nothing
Could ever your space in my heart replace.

I am, in fact, in love with you.

Beautiful Savior💜
