Jesus, You are my true north.

Take A Moment

Take a moment to see the beauty.

Take a moment to hear our creator.
Just take a moment to see where God has placed us… To see all that He is done.
God is our perfect father who knows what He is doing.

Enjoy this beautiful life with God & all that we are meant to in His abundance!

I have so many dreams come to pass.
He will always prove Himself faithful. Over & over.

God has given me good and encouraging friends who remind me to magnify the work of the Lord.. In that way HE builds our faith. NOT we. He is ever changing us to be more like Him.

In Him there is peace. Shalom peace. Sozo. WHOLENESS.

Tonight.. Or shall I say this morning… Wahwahwahwah (for you Jonny.. If you ever see this)..
I am going to //
Pack
Sleep.. Hopefully..
Get real nice & ready.. Get lookin good haha
& my FAVORITE! The first day of DISCIPLE (the fifth service disciple internship!)
We are off to the retreat!!!

Always moving onward and upward.

So thankful for all of the wonderful people in my life.

Time get er done. PRAISE HIM // Nicole

We CAN Hear.

So I have been working a ton lately.. Seems like too much. It is, but I know that there is a purpose & the season of working in that atmosphere is coming to an end. PRAISE HIM. Disciple is starting up TOMORROW. AHH. I am a happy camper.
Just been experiencing God in the work arena.. In so many ways. What a creator of romance He is.
Growing closer..
Drawing near…
Nothing comes close.

Don’t wanna live with out my King.. Not at all..

There are a few important commitment decisions that have been asked to make..
First thing I think is.. I don’t know.. Too much.. Too many puzzle pieces.. Not enough time.. But I want to do it all..
Something interesting about God is He gives us all enough time, money and resources in general to go through life the way that He has created us to.

He will always be enough.. But wants us.
Not our time…
Or not just our time.
Not our money…..
But our money will go to what we value.

He wants me.
He wants you…
Just as we are..

Anyways back to decisions,
I don’t know what to do..
I can’t use my logic for unpredictable things..

In me there was some sort of insecurity about weather I hear the Lord..
But, you know what? Time & time again, He proves Himself.

I asked to hear His voice… He reassures me.

When it says in the word that He will give us the desires of our hearts, I believe that is two fold.
He forms His desires in our hearts & He gives us those desires..

He does lead us through those desires that He give us.

Dreams are important. I say write em’ down & look back later to see they have come to pass..
Not right when we thought they would, but in due time..

Anyways my point & the area that I am growing in //
Let’s not get worried about our future, listen to the voice of God, for we know His voice (and the voice of a stranger we will not follow)

For the times we miss it.. WE ARE COVERED. Praise Him!
Grace is alive.

We CAN Hear the voice of God.
He is NOT playing hide & seek.
God wants us to find Him.

Seek & you will find, because HE IS RIGHT THERE.
With us always.

Nothing of my own // Nothing of my own,
Nicole

 

Hope

There is Hope in my heart.

There is hope that one day I will know God SO MUCH MORE
That I can grow closer TODAY

—-
BEEN LONGING. There has been a great longing inside of me.. To know you..Intimately
Over the past week, I have become more and more desperate to meet with You.
Humbled — I need you.
You make me and mold me with yourself.. Grace & Love..
Your design.

Draw me away from the ruckus of the world..
Screaming for my attention..
Long for it to be me & You..

Without You I would be stuck..
Stuck without a hope..

I need You in everything..
Need You in growing closer to you..
You make it possible.
I have failed time & time again.
Need you every morning..
….. Every morning, noon & night..
All of the time..

You call me your beloved.
.. & even when I fail you help me.. You care for me.. You hear my soul & spirit calling to You. Even in an unrighteous act, You hear the heart that You designed, call the beloved one who created it…
You hear my spirit cry out to know you & be like you..
Let us BE together.
Just Be..

I am becoming more & more like You, for You are making me. I am your workmanship. All of my scales you are taking off. Shame has no place..only a place for You.

Dwell in my heart ALWAYS
Let Your praise be in my heart & on my lips..

On this day, my prayer..
Help me to recognize You all day..
To be WITH You.. Really with You. Aware of You..
I want to know You & be made like you.

There is Hope in me.. All of which is God.
