He is a God rich in Universal Experiences. He puts His Hand to the plow and He tiles us until He knows that we are a Field of Delight worth the seed He intends for us. Because when God plants you somewhere you can guarantee He means to bring Choice Garden Leaf with hearty stem yet delicate petals—bearing the King succulent fruit that could win gold medals should you choose to enter it at the fair.
In the Harvest, in the Picking, He lavishes a love so strong on us, a
Little can always become great in the Hands and Heart of God.
What is it your heart cries for?
What is it that your soul yearns for?
There is a wanderlust of soul the Holy One in Heaven has ignited and He is delighted to stir it and yield something more.
Whatever your day holds—
Be it grand and important with many hands dependent upon you, many minds, many mouths to. Or maybe it is you alone in your world you have to behold. God is in it. He is there with you now.
“There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.”
1 John 4:18
Sometimes people’s loyalty fades quickly. Not everyone who claims to be loyal to you will make it through the slightest ounce of adversity. Some will hang in there for a bit before they also fade away, but then there are the few, these are the stellar giants of heart God has given to you. Consider it a gift, because
Where to begin…
This is the foremost thought on my mind tonight.
I’ve arrived home from one of the most favorite weeks of my life. I had no idea how much I’d love being in Israel. So much history. So much prophesy. So much …so much. I’ve unpacked my bags (because I’m a bit of a freak about putting things in order right away). I’ve had a light snack even though it’s “bedtime”, because I managed to lose 4 pounds on our trip somehow. And now I’m sitting down with my journal
My body struggles to identify what time or day it is. My appetite has done much the same.
But despite a lack of sleep and not fully comprehending the day of the week, my soul is overjoyed—
I have travelled to the birth place of my Lord.
Few things in life have enticed me, heart and soul, as the relationship I have with my Lord.
So what does that mean really?
A religious experience is the last thing I may be interested in.
What has always drawn my gaze and advanced my stare is the ability

Let me take a moment to introduce myself. Whether you’ve been following me for days, weeks, years or have only just discovered this blog- I will begin as if we are only just beginning together.
Together sounds good doesn’t it?
Together sounds strong.
Together has a layer of supplemental strength that can’t go wrong.
There is infinite power in together.
My name is Nicole. I am not an anonymous blogger. I’m not using a pen name. This is me, who I am, laying it out there in vulnerability
This is the air I breathe…
These are the words that sing to my internal mind and sweep through my soul as I open my eyelids this morning.
This is the air I breathe..
The breath of Heaven is a glorious thing. If I could somehow communicate how intoxicating it is to breathe Him in deeply.
People all over looking for something. But what? Most probably don’t even know what it is they are searching for. I suppose they feel they will know when they find it?
It’s a bit like falling in love. Well,
When you know—
When you know who you are, it won’t be hard.
Because who you are is what flows naturally.
You have a special imprint on this planet. Only you can determine the threshold of your impact.
That very threshold is shaped by your patterns and habits.
Do you remember as a child making a thumbprint in cement, paint or maybe some ink? The measure of the imprint depended on how hard you pressed down. But to make an impact on this planet you don’t press down,
you press in and out!
No one else
I think technology is great.
I grew up with the phone tethered to the wall. As a teen my Mom bought me a longer than long chord for the phone that would stretch all the way from the kitchen to my bedroom. It was a big day when I finally received as a gift my own phone for my room.
Computers, internet, cell phones, social media, etc. It creates a fast way to connect, learn, communicate. Really fast!
However, I am still a very old fashion girl. I prefer face to
God always equips us for how He calls us–
In the process of the equipping we endure a season constructed by heaven to retreat into the Savior’s Arms. Often times it requires a Night or a dark season of soul to relinquish our will for His.
Think back in your life to a time when it felt dark as night. You had a trouble or problem that was so much bigger than you and you didn’t know what to do. Maybe there wasn’t much you could do—just endure and perhaps you even
