No More Games


Braver Saturday – No More Games – the enemy in the earth and between our own ears is always shaming and blaming. It’s a game. Come up higher into His Truth. You are made in His Image. Love yourself. Love-d

Live From Heaven


Braver Saturday- Praying with you today: Father, thank You for Your faithfulness. Thank You that You are kind, loving, compassionate, merciful, patient, active, rich in wisdom and favor. Thank You that Your life and Your perspective is always better than what we think is best. Thank You that we can see life from heavens vantage point. Jesus, we give ourselves over to You fresh and new – daily – I acknowledge You with a confident trust that You direct my path, thoughts and decisions. With expectancy, I lean into the covenant You have with the Father that heals, inspires, restores, renews and refreshes me and those I live out life with in this adventure. Holy Spirit, I resist the thoughts and ideas that lead me from You and I lean into You. Thank You for drawing near to me as I draw near to You and thank You for causing me to walk with You instead of being lead astray. I belong to You and You belong to me. Jesus, You are not a fable, not a myth, not a crutch and not a facade – You are the Living One Who has awakened us all. Thank You that Your kingdom has come and Your will can be done right here and right now as You have already determined in heaven. Thank You for allowing us to hear from heaven. Thank You for dual citizenship – heaven and earth.I give myself to Your will. I give myself to Your breath. I give myself to Your ways. I respond to Your reach and I wrap myself around You and Your Life giving ways and I choose You as my Partner in Life, living and beyond. Let us see the Father and let us run this race with fervor and fascination in Jesus name. Let it be. Love-d

Do less with more


Braver Saturday – Do less with more focus. Do what you must while on the way to where He is taking you. Sometimes you spend a long season cleaning up the messes from past decisions. That’s okay. It’s part of the journey, Jesus is with you. That’s the whole Purpose – that He is with us…as you faithfully take care of issues that just cannot be ignored anymore – those things that niggle at your mind like a simmering pot on the stove – whether legal, mental, emotional, spiritual, physical or financial …over time…as you handle X y z you eventually get to that place of strength and humble beginnings…where you can focus on less and accomplish more. Do less with more. So, don’t be afraid to finish what you started. Look, there really are seasons where you can’t walk away from your past because it’s facing you each morning to remind you to follow up and follow through on what was begun…keep chipping away and trust Him each step of the way. Stay filled up with His presence and His courage as He walks with you….and He will direct you – focusing one day at a time ..it WILL GET YOU THROUGH the darkness and you WILL SEE less problems and more solutions. Don’t give up!! Don’t turn back!!! It’s gonna be okay. Eventually, you will move out of what you do and it will move you from all you know into who you have become and that’s when you see it….those obstacles and those fearful decisions were all part of shaping and molding you into the courageous person you have become… Do less with more focus and over the process of time, you leave what you know to step into who you have become. #blogger #faith #church #kingdom #anxiety #anxietyquotes #mentalhealth #fitnesss #gym #life #bebraver

Stunned by the new

Braver Wednesday -Lately I’ve been meditating on the psalms and this one is from 31. Wow. I’m stunned by the goodness of our God and His provision through Jesus. #bebraver Look to The Author – love, d

Amsterdam!

A professor here said that sadly, over 50% of population does not believe in a personal God. Hurt me to think that many here only live with their own truth. How sad and lonely. Share your heart of Truth today. 

Just thought I would share some photos from where we are right now..these are all from various spots from a boat tour and I’m not sure of even what they are…but thought you might enjoy!! The fruit was non GMO amazing and that was a walking tour..#bebraver Share life

What if it’s you?

Winning Wednesday- it could be someone has wronged you and you are upset deep inside where no one can see it. Maybe it’s so deep you can’t see it. Maybe it’s you who have wronged another. Friend, remember that you have both been forgiven. #BEBRAVER and Agree with His mercy that triumphed over His judgement – and yours. Love-d 

 

Light up the Dark

Fearless Friday- Why don’t you be the light in someone else’s darkness? As believers we justify walking out life alone because Jesus had friends unwilling or unable to stick with Him. We spiritualize loneliness saying our ‘need’ or someone else’s need should only be for Him. Perhaps we should heed His admonition to His disciples to remain awake? Perhaps this is an example of how we can be friends with others. Once someone begged me to be their friend. The intense need this woman had was unbearable. Over time I watched her blossom and bloom through our friendship. She never became dependent on me for her source of happiness. She just needed some light in her darkness so she could find her way out. 
In the family of Christ we should be healthy & mature enough to be friends with others. We should not have to beg for relationship with one another. Is it possible we should see the need of isolation as significant as shelter, food, or water? A possible breeding ground for suicide, sickness & bitterness may be lack of relationship. So, why don’t you light up someone else’s darkness? You might gain a lifelong friend. Love, d
