God’s View 

The reward of humility [that is, having a realistic view of one’s importance] and the [reverent, worshipful] fear of the LORD Is riches, honor, and life.” – PROVERBS‬ ‭22:4‬ ‭AMP‬‬

Misbelief……..we all struggle with it.

Inadequate pieces of our heart…….we have those places too.

The enemy likes to mirror back a reflection onto our heart that represents his lie of deception. 

The truth is that no one looks at us the way God does. 

Isn’t it wonderful to know that God sees in us what we can’t see in ourself? 

He teaches us in his love. He sees beauty and we are his magnificent masterpiece.

An Unbroken Bond


Life doesn’t always go as we plan

Sometimes there’s ups 

Sometimes there’s down’s

We go through detours

Might run into a cul- de- sac

The road may seem dark

With no sign of light

We think that we’ll never reach 

our destiny amidst broken dreams

We let go of hope

Trapped too deep in agony 

of hopelessness and despair

Seasons come and they go

Some good and some not so good

But hold on with all of your might

Cling to the smallest flicker of light

Trying times are part of the journey

You will discover your strength 

amidst broken dreams

It is part of the journey

He is fine tuning our heart

Bringing us into intimacy

He is building our faith

Doesn’t our Father know best?

It might feel like we are more in the valley, 

then on the mountaintop

While our dreams are slipping away

Life doesn’t always feel fair

We get hurt, go through abuse

Might lose our jobs, struggle with an illness, 

a wayward child

We look to God for answers

While He points us to the cross

To die a thousand deaths

Till we are no more

We cling to our pain and we feel like giving up

In the stillness of night

When you toss and you turn

Looking for answers

Your fists clutched in despair

You hear His small voice saying 

“My grace is sufficient for you, 

for My strength is made perfect 

in your weakness”

Surrender to the process your pain and despair  

Know that I am always with you

Tomorrow you will smile again

You will know that you are, one step closer to My dream for you

That all things work together for good 

to them that love Me

You will look back and know that

When you were too weak, 

I carried you

When the nightmares, wouldn’t stop 

I sang over you

When you couldn’t pray, I interceded for you

When all hell broke loose, I didn’t run

I walked you through the valley 

of death

Time after time

You found your strength in My

gaze for you

Found your joy when I danced 

with you

The trying seasons of life didn’t break you

Instead you fell more and more in love with Me

I became your greatest need

Every one else faded in the background

They could never give you, 

what you have found in Me

In your deepest pain 

An unbroken bond was formed

A covenant was made 

and I betrothed you to Me forever

You traded your ashes for My beauty

You choose to run this race

Crying and laughing, 

through pain and betrayal

You have found the One

Who gave you His all

Write It All Down 

I heard a voice thunder from the Throne:

 “Look! Look! God has moved into the neighborhood, making his home with men and women! 

They’re His people, He’s their God.

 He’ll wipe every tear from their eyes. 

Death is gone for good—tears gone, crying gone, pain gone—all the first order of things gone.” 

The Enthroned continued, “Look! I’m making everything new. 

Write it all downeach word dependable and accurate.” ~Revelation 21:3-5 MSG

Do you like to write down various Bible Verses or Journal? 

 I love to write out His Promises. 

This one is one of my favorites because it promises that ALL things and EVERYTHING He is making new!

Words In Red 

This morning as I was doing my daily Bible reading I was in John 14.

See the words in red that Jesus spoke:
John 14:1- 
Let not your heart be troubled.
John 14:18-
I will never leave you as orphans. 

If that is you today and your heart is troubled, hear the Lord saying to you

 “Let not your heart be troubled. I will never leave you as orphans” 

Jesus, thank you for your words in red. May they just not be some words on a page we read and forget but may they be the very hope and help we need today.

The Less Said 

When we feel moved to express our opinions or give a knee jerk response to someone we must weigh the impact of our words and keep this in mind…. 

“Sometimes the less said is the best said.” 

          ~XXOO Michelle Bollom 

In the multitude of words there is no lack of rebellion, but he that refrains his lips is wise. ~ Proverbs 10:19 JUB 

Road Map 

WORTHY THOUGHT: We are pilgrim’s of this world and we need a “road map” to help us guide our way. 

I am but a pilgrim here on earth: how I need a map -and your commands my chart and guide.-Psalms 119:19 Live Application Bible

Planning a long road trip usually requires some kind of map, or (GPS) to help guide to the final destination. 

Most people usually trust and never question the directions of the map and assume it gives safe and accurate directions. Without the map you could be lost, or worse, lead to destruction.

As believers, we need Jesus Christ’s assistance to help travel through this life. 

Reading and studying God’s Word is our ‘road map‘ to our final destination. 

The Holy Spirit will help lead and reroute all paths safely away from the pit falls, obstacles, dead ends, and help us to never get lost. 

Read the Bible and know Jesus Christ is the surest and safest way to travel to your final eternal destination.

Loving Reprimand

“Better is an open reprimand [of loving correction] Than love that is hidden.” ~ PROVERBS‬ ‭27:5‬ ‭AMP‬‬

Often times, when I am not looking above, or standing firm in the affirmations of my blessings, I can get caught up in the negative things that surround me.  

I forget that I have been chosen and created for more.

I can go after hidden love, the kind I’ll never see in things, or receive by human flesh. 

My mind is closed to the loving reproach of the Lord. I miss out, on an abundant life, one that should create a heart full in thankfulness. 

Yet, God in his magnificent power, seems to meet me despite the learning I’ve yet to accomplish. He doesn’t condemn me. He gently reminds me that it is an open mind that finds direction. 

It is from HIS heart where real love is deposited.

Baring His Beauty,

Warrior Daughter 

Do not fear my daughter

I am always with you

When you go through the valley of death

I am your rear guard

The One who never leaves

I see the fragile look on your face

The tear stains on your cheeks

How you smile, when you want to scream

How you laugh, when you want to give up

You never let go of My hand

Through the darkest of nights

When the enemy whispers lies in your ears

Trying to convince you to let go of My hand

You hold on with all of your might

Curled up like a baby

Singing your favourite love song to Me

You never let go when he tells you to

Instead you draw nearer to My presence

You know that I am your safe place

The One who fights for you

You never retreat 

You face the enemy head on

You worship, you dance, you pray, you war!

For in your battle plan

You have learned when to rest

While I do the work

I salute you

For never giving up, when you could

For seeking my face, when all hell breaks loose

For running to Me

When the demons of your past try to revisit you

You never let fear have his way in your life

You know how to silence the worst of storms

Giants fall when you take your place

Your thoughts in line with Mine

Your words echoing My voice

Your ear alert for My whispers

You’re so focused on your assignments

No time for demons stealing futures

You defend the weak and stand up for the poor

You are My warrior daughter

Trained in the worst of conditions

Many times you thought that you would die

While I saw you win battle after battle

Defeating giant after giant

Gaining ground in My kingdom

Many times crying and limping

But you persevered

The scars on your frail body 

A distant memory of battles won

It didn’t hurt

It made you brave

It didn’t silence you

You have discovered your voice

You clung to me

When it would have been easier to let go

Giving up was never in your vocabulary

No!!! 

You reached for Me, when other’s would let go

I am your Commander

The One who goes before you

The processes are necessary

The battles are necessary

You have discovered your identity 

In the midst of it all

Your heart the evidence of a warrior 

That is One with Me

My purposes for you was found in your deepest pain

On the battleground you became fearless and bold

The enemy though that he would take you out

Instead he launched you into your purposes

You are ready to step out

You are ready to reign with Me

You will set the world alight

Tell all my daughter’s

That I am found in the midst of their storms.
