“When it rains, most birds head for shelter; the Eagle is the only bird that, in order to avoid the rain, starts flying above the cloud.” ~Unknown
Some of the biggest and best accomplishments this world has ever seen have been done under extreme duress and adversity.
Airplanes rise against the wind not with it.
It is the wind against a sail that makes the boat go.
Don’t turn back when others speak skepticism and lack. Don’t confuse wise and Godly instruction for criticism and do not mistake criticism for wise instruction. If it’s
God sends angels to help you.
When I write; either a blog, a post, or a text (or a book, I just finished it!)…I write the same way I hear the Father speak to me. He is bold. He is edifying. He is gentle. He is sweet.
Yesterday morning during my devotion time I clearly heard the Spirit of God whisper to me, “I am radically devoted to you, Nicole.”
God deeply favors. Here’s a story to exemplify like an analogy the similarity between favor of man and favor of God. When I
I woke up this morning feeling heavy hearted the same as I did when I fell to sleep last night. God, where are you? Maybe that’s something you’re asking yourself right now. I know I am. But here, down beneath my hurt and heart ache, I know something on a deeper level and I have personal experience with its truth—
God is there, right beside you.
He’s always been there.
He is faithful.
He is protector.
He is confidant.
He is friend.
He loves the color of your skin, whatever shade it is.
He loves you

“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us,“ Hebrews 12:1
Have you ever done any running? Ever entered a race? I’m not a runner per se. I go for runs and get exercise by running—but I am not a runner. My oldest son is a runner. I ran with him once. I loved it, but also felt
“When you call on me—-I’ll be there…”
It’s like the whole world is on pause right now. America, paused. What a golden opportunity to search our own heart and soul and clean house so to speak. It’s a time to mend, a time to pray, and time to rest, a time to be, a time to heal, and a time to laugh dance and even sing. Because when you know that God has the whole world in His hands you don’t have to worry or be afraid.Many people are afraid to
Wherever there is excessive rules or control, there is a spirit of witchcraft behind it. Does that mean a controlling person is practicing witchcraft? No, not outright anyway. What it means is there is a demonic principality present and influencing choices and decisions. There are rules taught by man and man made that seem good, and maybe they are good, but they are not necessarily “Biblical”, but maybe are more socially expected. But this does not mean it is from God! Sometimes man made and socially accepted rules
“Someone deliberately touched me, for I felt healing power go out from me.” Luke 8:46
Today is my son, Andrew’s 9th Birthday. I love Andrew immensely. Andrew is significantly younger than his siblings. I was an older Mom when I had him.
Our entire family was going through the trial of our life when I discovered I was pregnant with my little man. We were enduring the lawsuit from hell that lasted six years with no respite in sight with a man who I believe God used to teach me a lot
Nothing is forever~
Change comes to us all. You don’t have to listen to the idle chatter. When something is the matter look up. Because doubt looks down and worry looks around. When we keep our gaze fully where it needs to be it doesn’t matter what anyone else is doing. You must do what is best for you.
What is it you need? What is it your family needs? How will you intercede?
Wash away fear, doubt and worry. Make it flee in a hurry.
I can’t believe it has already been nearly
I’ve been a writer all of my life. I just didn’t always know it. I wasn’t always aware of my gift there. Wasn’t aware it was a strength.
I’ve been a writer all of my life, but I haven’t always done so with a pen.
A writer is always writing. We do it with words, but sometimes those words are thoughts and memories and things etched within us that stay with us. The inspiration comes from a variety of sources. I have been known to find much inspiration in the
God is so enormously unique.
My entire life has been full of rules. And in the midst of all the rules and all of my compliance, God swooped in on my heart and showed me his love and that it is ultimately not about rules (though he does have some).
And by his love he ruled, schooled and won my heart.
He gave me a connection with him like none other. He is the line I am connected to.
My entire life I have gone—on and off—to church, but never truly felt I fit
