How do you ever know your thinking or actions are off if no one ever tells you. Sometimes we think our learned and established behavior or thought patterns are wise and correct. Truth be told, we ALL need that someone who is unbiased and cares enough to challenge our possibly wrong thinking/behavior. Woe be it unto the man who is never challenged in that manner or never challenges those close to them. ~Iron Sharpens Iron~BHicks
I saw this photo from Shawn McKenzie and loved it. I wrote some encouraging words below it for women like this. I pray it blesses you. The revelation blessed me.
If you are this, understand that every man is not looking for this. Make sure you’re ok with that fact and remember to not take a step back waiting for someone who doesn’t understand the value of this, to catch up. They just may not be in to you, or ready for you, or just not checking for you. That’s ok. If there is only one for you that means don’t gaze into the eyes of every man in the multitude wondering if he is the one. It may sound cliche but fix your eyes on GOD. If you deal in Faith you know HE will not make you ashamed, HE knows what you need, want and how to give it to you. HE is your Father. Your greatest champion who knows and calls you by name. Speak your name and who you are and what GOD has Himself said about you. It will help you to remember you’re worthy. As for me, my name is Bridgette. Though I had strayed I am called and chosen. I am waiting, I am patient, I am grateful and I Am LOVE.
Ich Liebe Dich Alle ❤️

Sometimes the perception that someone is against you is nothing more than the fact that they’ve chosen to be FOR themselves.
Your choices today: 1. Wake up moaning about what’s wrong, murmuring about who didn’t treat you fairly, mourning over dead and stinking mistakes you were bound to make, and capitulating to your emotions.
2. Wake up thankful to GOD that you woke up, being grateful for everyone GOD placed in your life and interceding on their behalf, thanking GOD for imperfect moments which allow you to recognize that you need HIM, and being prayerful against any spirit of depression or negative emotions.
Sounds like a no brainier right? Well that’s just it, many times were not cognizant of that fact that we’ve made the wrong choice. We wake up on autopilot and sometimes never tune into that great opportunity we have to claim LIFE over our day. We miss the moment to claim Peace, Protection and Provision over our life and the lives of those we know and love. We get so caught up in getting up and out. We forget to let the enemy know he has no power over us this day because we serve a GOD who gives us Power to trample over serpents. We forget to ask for our daily bread, forgiveness for sin and getting in debt, the ability to forgive, the ability to stay out of temptations way and the ability to be delivered from evil. (Mathew 6:9-13 KJV)
With that being said; what choice have you made. Or better yet which choice Will you make? It’s never too late to create a better today…or tomorrow.
“I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:”Deuteronomy 30:19 KJV
“See, I set before you today life and prosperity, death and destruction.” Deuteronomy 30:15 NIV
Choose LIFE and have a wunderbar day!
Ich Liebe Dich Alle❤️

Water is the breath of life you need after GOD wakes you up with a breath of life. Make sure you drink from the fountain first thing in the morning and give thanks for the well that never runs dry. It provides nourishment to the body and to the spirit. Don’t be confused…its freely available to quench your thirst…no matter what you’re thirsty for. Ich Liebe Dich Alle! ❤️❤️

Guten Tag Menschen von GOTT !
Sometimes when we pray we can tend to want instant results. And if we don’t see those results we begin to lose Faith. We begin to take matters into our own hands and trust in our own strength. Our futile effort to do what we already asked GOD to do many times puts us in a position of feeling worse and doing wrong things in an attempt to get to the right place. Worse off than if we would’ve just prayed, trusted and stayed still, we now are praying harder than ever before. But now we’re praying for GOD to fix up what we messed up and still Bless us in the way of our initial prayer. If only we would’ve just believed in GODS timing….
If you pray in Faith in this new season GOD is going to show you signs, bit by bit, of the miracle to come. Pay close attention….because “Signs and Wonders accompany them that believe”. Be Patient and Keep your Faith, Confidence and Hope in GOD. No matter how hard you work at the thing you’ve prayed for, if it’s not GODS TIMING you are completing an exercise in futility. Be ready and in position…on your knees with hands clasped, looking to Heaven so that when GOD gets ready to do what you’ve asked HIM to do….you’ll be ready.
Don’t worry about anything, but in all your prayers ask God for what you need, always asking him with a thankful heart. And God’s peace, which is far beyond human understanding, will keep your hearts and minds safe in union with Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:6-7 GNB)
Ich Liebe Dich Alle,

Shhhhh! Do you hear that? Someone somewhere is whispering about you. It’s someone who has never seen you, or hasn’t seen you in a long time, maybe never even met you, never held a conversation with you, possibly knows of you through someone else, heard of you, or maybe they do know the you you’ve chosen to show them. But there is someone somewhere throwing you shade,There is someone giving you props, There is someone admiring your look, There is someone seeking to swindle you, There is someone wanting to protect you, there is someone wanting to possess you…only to neglect you. There is someone desiring to hire you, there is someone wanting to fire you. There is someone who can’t stand you. There is someone who wants to command you. There is someone who is confused about you. There is someone waiting to hear bad news about you. There is someone wanting to bless you. There is someone who detests you. There is some one who clings to your every word. There is someone that thinks your words are absurd. There is someone who knows you’ll do great things, there is someone who hopes you don’t succeed at anything. There is someone who wants to hug you. There is someone who wants to LOVE YOU.
With GOD those who speak and think ill of you…dont matter. But those whom love you and lift you up even when you are unaware set off a chain reaction of good and GODLY things to come to you…and themselves.
Do your best to live a life that pleases GOD. Notice I said do “your” best…and when you fall short GOD will do the rest.
Haters are ever present…throwing shade in the light, but you continue to walk your walk…and allow GOD to fight your fights.

Imagine who you would be if life’s situations hadn’t succeeded in bringing you to your knees and bowing to the King. You would still be negatively affecting and infecting people, places and things with the stain of your unwillingness to notice the things you needed to change.
So right now! I mean it…right now Thank GOD for making your high places low…and causing you to grow in the things of HIM.
In HIM you will Win. Let HIM continue the work HES begun in you.

And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns. (Philippians 1:6 NLT)
True Acceptance is when you reach a crossroad in life and a person who didn’t know you before you reached the stop sign, is willing to take a chance and walk with you to the other side, doing their best to make sure you don’t step out into oncoming traffic.

This is a devotional I wrote in 2010. GODS word is timeless. I hope it meets your spirit today.
Be who you are….GOD designed each of us differently. Each of us possess gifts that are different from others. You were planned and designed by the master. There is a blueprint in GODs office on his desk with your name on it. He is having his people (His Son and the Holy Spirit) work in and through you to make sure everything lines up so that when the building not made by mans hands is done… it will be complete…lacking nothing. On this earth there are going to be people put off by your intellect, your spirit of GOD, your resolve to stand firm and not waiver in the way you carry yourself, etc. Never change who you are to be a part of anything or accommodate anyone. Most times when you do this…it ends badly. Don’t waste your own precious time or anyone else’s not being true in who you are and what you know.
Stand firm knowing that you were designed by greatness. That which you possess is not for everybody to be in the presence of …to partake in. Be selective of your inner circle…and MOST IMPORTANTLY…..BE TRANSFORMED…DO NOT CONFORM. Be THANKFUL to GOD, HUMBLE and GRACIOUS. Never fall back in letting the world see the excellence in who HE made YOU to be.
Don’t become like the people of this world. Instead, change the way you think. Then you will always be able to determine what God really wants-what is good, pleasing, and perfect.
Psalm 139:14 I will give thanks to you because I have been so amazingly and miraculously made. Your works are miraculous, and my soul is fully aware of this.
