Are you in alignment with your Divine Assignment?
And not to leave the guys out – you are beautiful too when you are in alignment with your Divine Assignments too!
You are BEAUTIFUL.
Every battle scar has been perfectly etched into your incredible heart. Placed to tell a story that is so unique and so heartfelt, that only you can tell it.
Your light, sweet friend, it comes from the depths of a once tattered heart. Shining out through the pieces that have been so lovingly put back together by the King of Kings. It’s infectious, spreading into the darkest places of someone else’s hopelessness.
I can see the things you have already accomplished. I see the lives you have touched. The people that are forever changed by the momentary brushes of your gentle presence.
You are so loved. Forever cherished. I’m so excited to watch you. Maybe up close, maybe from a distance. You are destined for great and mighty things.
You are a world changer.

He walked passed me
and He saw me
When no one saw me
Alone, struggling in my own blood
Fighting my own fights
He spoke life over me
I was not even aware of His love for me
I was not even aware of my need of a Saviour
Living a life of compromise
No safe place or someone I could call home
Searching for anything and anyone
To fill this big hole in my heart
I tried to fill it with alcohol, tattoos, piercings, sex, you name it…I’ve probably done it
My way of dealing with
this nagging emptiness
Which I could never give a name
Avoid facing my fears
Too much effort to deal with it
Easier to go with the flow
The list of my ‘painkillers’
grew longer and longer
Don’t most of us have our own?
Yet, it could never remove my pain
Still I would never admit to it
Pride kept me bound
Darkness my norm and the standard I lived by
I never knew that a life of freedom
was available to me
Till He passed by me
and spoke life over me
He said ‘Live’ to the desperate me
The ‘me’ living a life of lies
One encounter that would forever
One word was all I needed
To open my eyes to the rags
I was dressed in
For the first time
I knew I was worthy
‘Live’ meant that someone saw me
That I was not a mistake
That I was worthy of a love so great
He passed by me again and
it was my time for love
He washed off my blood
together with my past
Anointed me with oil
Covered my nakedness
that was visible to all
My past and my pain
He erased it all
He swore an oath and entered into
a covenant with me
A wayward child whose
Life story was now rewritten
with His precious blood
A covenant that would stand the tests of time
The processes of the journey
Different seasons and times
Through the highs and lows
The valleys and mountains
because I knew Who was with me
Transforming me daily to be more like Him
I was clothed in fine linen and covered with silk
Sandals of badger skin were put on my feet
Adorned with silver and gold
Put on display for everyone to see
That no one is beyond
His amazing grace
He can use us all
He perfects us daily by His grace
Turned into testimonies
Changing atmospheres wherever we go
Touching hearts as we journey on
Spreading the Good News
that started it all.

He Spoke Life Over Me

You couldn’t understand
When your life came crashing down
Quickly, without warning
Your life was invaded
Brought to a standstill
Nothing left of what was
You were taken away
on an unknown journey
To discover His heart
To discover His love
Gasping for air
Tossing and turning
You had to retreat
from all things familiar
Many questions on your lips
Your mind a battle ground
Your life turned upside down
Never to be the same again
You following Him blindly
Broken and hurt
Rejected and abandoned
Jobless, homeless, through many losses
Yet, the sound of His voice
Made you realise
That what He has to offer
Was worth searching for
You didn’t know that it was
the best place to be
To be broken and taken apart
To be mended by the Potter Himself
His voice has become your hope
For it’s in our trials and pain
In the storms and fiery furnace
In hiding, and longing for answers
That Pappa becomes our deepest desire
He quiets our fears
Hides us under His wings
Till the storms pass
We become clay in the hand of our Master
So that only His will, will be done in our lives
Obedience unto death is when our lives begin
When we are on a journey of finding Him
Lost to the world and what it has to offer
I walked through many fires
Yet I never burned
Found myself in the midst of fierce storms
Yet I never drowned
Found myself on the battleground
Scared, alone, in pain
Yet I never retreated
I knew who was with me
He knew me by name
His love for me, stronger than death itself
He gave me His life, on a hill
What He asked of me
Could never compare
To the price He was willing
He wants to reveal His true sons and daughters
He trained away from all eyes
The ones who paid the price
Away from the crowd
The ones who were mocked and persecuted
Because they were too deep
They didn’t care
They died to self, with no reputation
Only the scars of many battle’s won
He was worth every tear
He was worth the whispers
You will look back and look for your mockers, and see them no more
They will look back and see
My glory eminating from you
Your whole being
dripping with oil
It came with the pressing
It cost a great price
You stood firm during the trials and storms
Nothing could move you
No one could stop you
You persevered, though tired and scared
Through abandonment and fear
You never gave into, those who can only kill the body
Led by My Spirit alone
So that I could get the glory
Through your surrendered life
My true sons and daughters
are marked by My love
Obedience unto death
set them apart
They couldn’t care less for religion and rituals
Couldn’t care less for manipulation and wealth
Couldn’t care less for a stage or popularity
They are only about their Father’s business
They will be revealed in due time
Distinguished by My love flowing through them.
~ Ebigale Wilson
Distinguished By My love
True sons and daughters

Sin shall not be our master, for we are not under law but under grace. If we were just handed a list of dos and don’t and told to obey the list, we would fail miserably, just like the people of God in the Old Testament.
However, our covenant is better.
Our Father tells us now: “Keep your eyes on Christ, and let him live through you”.
It is a far better covenant, and yields sweet fruit, if we will only surrender our lives to Christ.
As part of the covenant, we are given great and precious promises that we can depend on. We are told that we are now children of God, that we will never die, that God will never leave us or forsake us, and that he will keep us from stumbling and present us blameless before him with great joy.
As we learn and rely on these promises, our faith and our love grow, and we leave behind our former lives with all the accompanying sin and devastation.
So, our victory in this life depends on our cooperation with Our Father, Our Lord, and the Holy Spirit.
Yes, there is discipline and chastening, but there is also light, love, joy, and peace waiting for us at the end of every trial. Eternity calls and waits for the full adoption of every child of God. Bliss awaits us; immortality and Christlikeness are our destiny. Our Father will not be denied; he will have his family with him and beside him, to enjoy them forever!
The call has come. The game has begun. The rules have been explained. The outcome has been determined. Now is the hour of decision. Will we play by the rules and win, or will we ignore the rules and risk defeat?
It seems simple enough; any wise individual will make the right choice. Or so you would think.
The game is life. We are all called to play. Christ is the rule maker. If we play by his rules, we gain entry into his kingdom. If we play by his rules, we win.
Ah, there is the rub – his rules, his kingdom.
What if I want to play by my rules and rule my kingdom? That is always an option, and many are those who make that choice. It is exhilarating – we get to be the king or the queen, and everybody else gets to be our subjects. What fun! Or is it?
What if nobody wants to play by our rules? What if nobody wants us to be the king or the queen? What if everybody wants to be the king or the queen?
Houston, I think we have a problem.
So, we acquiesce, and allow Jesus to be the King. Immediately, he makes us princes and princesses and gives us heavenly responsibilities in his kingdom. He gives us his name, and he shares his glory with us. Everything that he has he shares with us – his heart, his mind, his wisdom, and his wealth.
He gives us time and opportunity to work with him building an everlasting kingdom where love and peace reign. Ultimately, we get to move into the eternal mansions that we helped build with our lives of service. All of our efforts in time turned into riches that will endure forever. All because we decided to play by the rules!
