Warrior

Posted in Uncategorized tagged , , , , , , , , , , , at 6:41 am by Broken & Brave

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?

Beloved…I know what the Lord is up to. He is equipping you for your Calling. He is building stamina, fortitude, and the ability to dig deep and keep going. You already have all of these virtues…but he is molding you to a new level of abundance in each. I am so excited for you!!! I will pray you through…but get excited, God must have amazing and wonderful plans for you!❤️

God sees and knows every detail of struggles you are going through.

Secured and Treasured

I secured my laurel wreath crown and I ran into the Night…

When God makes you a promise He will rescue you from the moss and the dust.
Over your life he begins to dote and fuss…
You are a big deal to him.
You dawn a smile on his face and project an internal glow that brings radiance to his grace.

He equips then he sends us into the Night to face all that which is dark inside.

Our greatest courage comes when we look inwardly and recognize who we see–the real you, the real me.
We recognize and receive Truth.
This is when we become who we were purposed to be and take our first steps into Providence and Destiny.

He has selected for you a laurel wreath crown…
His crown is not the obvious crown.

It is not flashy or showy…
It is subdued.
It is not greedy or needy…
It is devoted.
A symbol of Mastery.
He loves you and comes toward you.

The Fountain has come and his heart is overrun with Pure pleasure for you.

Allow his Celestial Presence to cascade over you.
Let his veil brush your lips with destiny’s kiss and cover, protect and bless you.
You have been adorned in splendor.

It is in the Night we learn to grow our wings and discover true flight.
He is the Endless Rescuer of our soul.
He is a Mighty and Majestic Help Mate.

So when you face the Night.
Secure your wings tight.
Don’t wrestle the darkness–
Cut through it.

Through it you emerge on the other side Radiant and Captivating with Love’s Pure Light.

God bless your life.
Secure and treasured-
You are loved without measure.

Own the Night….

Awakened

Posted in Devotional, Inspirational tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 7:12 am by Broken & Brave

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.💛

Protected

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.”
