Ever had somebody think you were mad at them when you weren’t? It can be frustrating to convince someone who has decided in their heart and are sure of a non fact.
But don’t we all do this to God over and over again? Don’t we betray our own heart and fail to show ourselves kindness because we expect the worse case scenario to unfold?
We place our expectations of the future on our experiences of the past. What a horrible mask the enemy has dealt to corrupt God’s Good
All of life is a song—
You bring the melody
God plays the harmony
And together, it becomes poetic history and great things are done.
Your life is a book.
God holds the Master copy—
The version with all the tattered edges, tear stains, choices made and not made.
The one with all the highlights and torn pages.
Pencil smudges where ideas, pursuits, mishaps were erased.
Be an open book.
As an open book you are as open and vulnerable as can be.
For vulnerability is key for healthy relationships and healthy intimacy.
The closed book is easier, safer, most guarded and
You are My Beloved Times Nine.

“Lord, purify is heart, mind and soul. Make us liquid gold. Let us not resist as you shape and mold us into the glorious vessels of your Love. Then the world would also know the greatness of your love.” Amen🙏🏼

“Listen to advice and accept discipline,
and at the end you will be counted among the wise.” Proverb
“Open the eyes of my heart Lord.”
To see, to hear, to learn and grow. There’s love in discipline.
Beautiful is a heart that accepts reproof. When we realize sometimes we struggle not because we are being punished, but rather we are being loved.
There is beauty in forgiveness, humility, meekness, gentleness
“This, in essence, is the message we heard from Christ and are passing on to you: God is light, pure light; there’s not a trace of darkness in him.” 1 John 1:5
God is nothing but Life, Light, Joy, Goodness, Grace, Love and all things Hopeful. He can do all things; the imaginable and the unexplainable seemingly impossible. He is the ultimate Possibility Thinker, Way Maker, Bondage Breaker and the Friend like no other friend, loyal to the core.
For three days He became darkness to absorb all of ours. Like a

What is dripping from your lips? Think of your words as a highway…
A week ago I was driving with a friend up in the Motherlode of Northern California. If you haven’t been there it is breath-taking with beauty. Steep ravines and every kind of evergreen. Absolute Majestic Beauty. As we drove I mentioned to my friend of the roads. I thought of all the pioneers who blazed these trails and paved them as well. High power lines added to increase the

Whatever YOU are to do, YOU have been equipped with POWER! So many people miss out on their own destiny because they approach it with insecurity. Here are some things people say, “that’s easy for you because…”, “I could never do that because…”, “But they do this or that better than me or they are prettier than me or maybe smarter than me.” Nonsense! No matter your past, present, education, cultural influence, you have been predestined! So

2 Cor. 2:15
A blessing for your day:
Lord bless you to be the fragrance of worship that would fall besotted and soften every heart, that would inspire the bend of every knee, to look longingly toward the King of kings. You are the flavor and aroma this world needs. So many things special about you…you are needed, valuable and loved. God hemmed your every attribute in place and saw your potential so big it placed a smile on His face. Go forward into your day
It is the dwelling place of Hope. Though it takes courage, don’t be afraid to dare to Believe.
I Believe in You! Now, go with belief in yourself. You CAN do it! -Nicole
