Season Of Victory Coming

God says,

I see what you’re dealing with precious one.

The things no one knows about, the pain, the tears, the struggle that goes on behind closed doors.

Take heart, lean into Me for I have overcome the world.

Now is the time for healing, forgiveness, and growth.

Healing from the broken places of your past, healing from abuse, healing from cruel words spoken over you, and healing from the things you’ve done to yourself.

I will rescue you.

I will protect you.

You are my Beloved, who I am well pleased.

You are not your past mistakes, you have been remade.

You are loved.

You are chosen.

You are redeemed.

You are forgiven.

You are accepted.

You are blessed.

You are the apple of My eye. My beautiful masterpiece.

I am taking you to the next level so forget what lies behind you. Press on to what lies ahead.

I will make a way for you when there seems no way.

Greater things are coming. Things you can’t even imagine.

All of My promises are for you and they are ‘Yes and Amen!’

Your season of Victory is just around the corner, so hang in there.

I am the God of Restoration and I WILL restore to you what the enemy has stolen.”

Messing with me

I promise he won’t get
One more thing

Going into battle
Be my sword

Walk By Faith, Not By Sight

Good morning beautiful TOG readers.

Has life dealt you a difficult hand? Do you feel overwhelmed? Nothing seems to be going your way. It’s times like this when we have a choice, we can dig in and press through or just simply give up….I’m taking the later one off the table for you my friend. Giving up is NOT AN OPTION!

This is where you pick up the Word of God, which is sword of the Spirit and you begin spiritual warefare with that pretty little mouth of yours.

Call those things that be not as though they are….

In this life we have to walk by faith, we cannot live by our feelings or our circumstances.

Keep your eyes focused on Jesus and the promises of God. Keep calling forth those promises that have yet come to pass. Speak LIFE!! God has your answer, HE is your ANSWER!!

Don’t give up, keep speaking God’s word, and His promises over your life, He is not a god that should lie and His word cannot return void! It may take some time precious one, that’s when you have to press in and have faith. Faith that God is for you and not against you, faith that God has a great plan for your life and for your family, faith that you are healed and made whole, faith that you are delivered and set free from that addiction that has kept in bondage for so many years!!

Yes, you call those things that be not as though they are, God is working on your behalf you may not see it this second, but you will. Have faith precious one, believe and speak life.

Sword Of The Spirit:

2 Chronicles 15:7 “But as for you, be strong and courageous, for your work will be rewarded.”

Isaiah 41:10 “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”

Mark 10:27 Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God.”

Galatians 6:9 “Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.”

Joshua 1:9 “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.”

Matthew 11:28 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.”


God supplies me with everything I need to get through the battles of life. You know I am weary and worn, make Your presence known in my life, show yourself strong Lord. Renew my mind and strengthen my inner man. Your word says, I can do ALL THINGS through Christ who strengthens me, so I cling to this verse and believe it with all my heart. I fix my eyes on You, you are Helper, my Healer, my Deliverer, my strength, and my hope. Help me to rest in You, and pick up my Sword in times of trouble and help me to not give up. In Jesus name, Amen!

Have a blessed and wonderful day!

Big hugs,


Walk By Faith- Jeremy Camp

Well I will walk by faith
Even when I cannot see 
Well because this broken road
Prepares your will for me
Well I’m broken, but I still see your face
Well you’ve spoken, pouring your words of grace

How Can We Pray For You

Good morning, happy Sunday y’all! Seems lately every time I turn around I’m hearing of people being sick or going through some really tough stuff. I believe that prayer changes everything! Let’s go boldly to the throne. Your miracle has a name and date and it will not be delayed! 🙏🏻🙌🏻

I’d love to pray for you if you have need and are comfortable sharing it. If not an unspoken request is fine, God knows.

Who Is Like The Lord- Highlands Worship
Who is like the Lord, strong in battle
Who is like the Lord, mighty to save
Who is like the Lord, King forever
Jesus reigns, Jesus reigns
You reign in all the earth
You reign in all the heavens, You’re holy
You’re seated on the throne
Nothing can stand against You, You’re holy
You reign in all the earth
You reign in all the heavens, You’re holy
You’re seated on the throne
Nothing can stand against You, Lord

Foot Of The Cross

Happy Saturday y’all! Hope you are having a good weekend so far. Any exciting plans? We are moving our daughters furniture and some things to Tennessee tomorrow, and the rest when she moves up there after the wedding.

The wedding is just 3 weeks away!😱

Are struggling with guilt and shame? Do you want to be healed and made whole? I have good news for you, broken hearts can be mended. Jesus died on the cross to remove your guilt and shame.

Today He says, receive from Me precious one, receive My love, forgiveness, and mercy! It’s free and it’s just for you!

Not Without Pain But Without Stain

Come to the Cross, lay it all down at the altar, there is love, forgiveness and freedom at the “Foot of the cross.”

Big hugs,


At the cross I bow my knee
Where Your blood was shed for me
There’s no greater love than this
You have overcome the grave
Your glory fills the highest place
What can separate me now. You go before me
You shield my way
Your hand upholds me
I know You love me.”

God Is Able

Do you realize the same power that raised Christ from the dead dwells on the inside of you? That’s right! God’s resurrection power is in you!

He is able to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly more than all that we dare ask or think [infinitely beyond our greatest prayers, hopes, or dreams], according to His power that is at work within us.”

God has given each of you spiritual gifts and we are to use them and serve others in the process.

God is ready to enlarge your territory, so go confidently in the direction of your destiny! God has such great plans for you! Sometimes we have to look with new eyes….God’s eyes. Your life changes when your perspective changes. Keep speaking God’s word over you, your marriage, family, circumstances, health, and your finances.

Take the limits off of your mind, think beyond where you are or where your circumstances have you because GOD IS ABLE! NOTHING IS TO BIG FOR HIM!

My friend, God is up to something good today, and He has YOU in mind! He is gonna do exceedingly, abundantly, above and beyond what we can ever hope, ask, or imagine. So dream BIG! Pray BIG! Believe BIG!

“If you are not praying the type of prayers that scare you, your prayers are certainly not frightening our enemy.” Lisa Bevere

“Ask boldly, believingly, without a second thought.People who “worry their prayers” are like wind-whipped waves. Don’t think you’re going to get anything from the Master that way, adrift at sea, keeping all your options open.”
James 1:6-8 MSG

Have a blessed and wonderful day and remember God Is Able!

Big hugs,


God Is Able Hillsong

God is with us
He will go before
He will never leave us
He will never leave us
God is for us
He has open arms
He will never fail us
He will never fail us
Lifted up
He defeated the grave
Raised to life
Our God is able
In His name
We overcome
For the Lord
Our God is able

Be Anxious For Nothing

Do not be anxious or worried about anything, but in everything [every circumstance and situation] by prayer and petition with thanksgiving, continue to make your [specific] requests known to God.” Philippians 4:6

Walking in gratitude everyday is key to resting in God’s peace during tough times. When fear of the unknown threatens to bog you down or steal your JOY, ask God to help you focus on what is true, and then thank him for that truth.

The verse before this actually helps us to not be anxious for anything, but we often leave this out, 4 little words. ….The Lord is near.

The Lord is near sweet friend.

God loves you so much and He won’t ever let you go. He’s close to the brokenhearted. You are more than any mistakes you’ve made, and God is bigger than your failures. That’s truth my friend!

When the enemy comes at you and stirs up fear in your heart and mind today, fight his lies with the word of God and by choosing to have a grateful heart. Remind him of who you are and Whose you are…..who YOU are in Christ.

I am complete in Him Who is the head over all rule and authority—of every angelic and earthly power (Colossians 2:10). 

I am alive with Christ (Ephesians 2:5). 

I am free from the law of sin and death (Romans 8:2). 

I am far from oppression, and will not live in fear (Isaiah 54:14). 

I am born of God, and the evil one does not touch me (1 John 5:18). 

I am holy and without blame before Him in love (Ephesians 1:41 Peter 1:16). 

I have the mind of Christ (1 Corinthians 2:16Philippians 2:5). 

I have the peace of God that surpasses all understanding (Philippians 4:7). 

The Spirit of God, who is greater than the enemy in the world, lives in me (1 John 4:4). 

I am chosen by God who called me out of the darkness of sin and into the light and life of Christ so I can proclaim the excellence and greatness of who He is (1 Peter 2:9). 

I am born again—spiritually transformed, renewed and set apart for God’s purpose—through the living and everlasting word of God (1 Peter 1:23). 

I am God’s workmanship, created in Christ to do good works that He has prepared for me to do (Ephesians 2:10). 

I am a new creation in Christ (2 Corinthians 5:17). 

In Christ, I am dead to sin—my relationship to it is broken—and alive to God—living in unbroken fellowship with Him (Romans 6:11). 

The light of God’s truth has shone in my heart and given me knowledge of salvation through Christ (2 Corinthians 4:6). 

As I hear God’s Word, I do what it says and I am blessed in my actions (James 1:22, 25). 

I am a joint-heir with Christ (Romans 8:17). I am more than a conqueror through Him who loves me (Romans 8:37).

Dig in and study for yourself who you are in Christ, as you do you will discover the Lord is near to you and when we draw near to Him, he draws near to us. When He is near, we don’t have to be anxious about anything precious one.

Have a blessed day!

Big hugs,


Availability Not Ability

God is calling you to come up higher, to come into new territory. He says “As I was with Moses so I will be with you.”

Come on sweet friend step out to something you’ve never done before. Don’t look at your weakness, or what you’re not or what someone said you can’t do. God says, “Look to Me, look at My strength. I am with you and will never leave you or forsake you.”

God is not looking at your ability, He’s looking at your availability🙌🏻

Happy Saturday y’all! Hope y’all have a great Father’s Day weekend.

Big hugs,


No Pit To Deep

What happens when the trials of life seems to overtake you?

When you feel as though the enemy has won the battle….

When God doesn’t step in and rescue you from the dark pit you are in….

Maybe you landed in this dark pit because of choices you made and now you think you belong there. Or maybe someone else’s choices got you in there. Now you’re all alone, hopeless, full of pain, shame and guilt. You say to yourself “God, do you care about what’s happening to me? Do you even hear me?” Maybe that’s you right now. It’s ok to feel that way.

My friend, God is still with you even when it seems he’s not and no matter how dark your circumstances are, God is still working behind the scenes. He hasn’t forgotten.

PRAYKeep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you. Matthew 7:7

I have been so down where I didn’t even know what or how to pray, maybe you have to. Sometimes just saying the name Jesus is all you can muster up. But what a powerful name it is, just the very name of JESUS sends demons fleeing. He’s the name above ALL names….King of King, Lord Of Lords.

Jesus means “Savior” because He saves people. Do you you need saving precious one or rescuing from that pit? All you gotta do is ask God to meet you exactly where you’re at, even in the pit. It’s the Reckless Love of God, He’s coming after you.

“There’s no shadow You won’t light up
Mountain You won’t climb up
Coming after me
There’s no wall You won’t kick down
Lie You won’t tear down
Coming after me
There’s no shadow You won’t light up
Mountain You won’t climb up
Coming after me

Give Him your pain and sorrow. The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.” Psalm 34:18

Give Him your tears. You keep track of all my sorrows. You have collected all my tears in your bottle. You have recorded each one in your book.” Psalm 56:8

It’s ok tell tell him you’re hurting and broken, He already knows, He’s a God of compassion. “As a father has compassion on his children, so the Lord has compassion on those who fear him;” Psalm 103:13

Dear Lord, I thank you that I don’t have to get all fixed up to come to you, thank you for meeting me exactly where I’m at. You know my heart, my every need. You’ve seen each tear I’ve cried. Set me free from the things that bind me. Renew my mind and give me peace and courage to walk in your ways. Thank You for your kindness and goodness. You are so powerful and nothing is to big for you. Stir up the gifts in me, increase my passion to do what you’ve called me to do. In Jesus name, Amen.

Big hugs,

Nicole 💗

The JOY Of The Lord Is My Strength

Hey y’all! Hope you are doing well. You guys have any exciting plans this summer or fun trips? We are busy bees here. We have our younger daughters wedding in July. Just had her bridal shower a couple weeks ago. Ain’t she cute y’all?

Eythan’s aunt made the cake. It was very pretty. I’m sure it was delicious, sadly I couldn’t eat since I have to eat gluten free.

Just celebrated my 49th, I mean my 29th birthday LOL this past weekend. OMG! It’s my mommy’s birthday 😂

The fam💗

So for the last few years I pick a word for the year that I will focus on. This year my word was JOY. I always have some kinda confirmation of my word but this year it was so crazy at the confirmation God gave me. You can check out these 2 post from last year JOY and I Got A Little Joy

Of course, as the year has gone by things have happened, lots of things have happened and we can lose focus….well know I can sometimes lose focus and get caught up in what’s going on and forget what the Lord told me. Kinda like those New Years resolutions, LOL.

I think sometimes we need this reminder from John 10:10 that Satan comes to steal, kill and destroy, but He came that we “may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows)” 

I don’t know about you but the enemy has come at me so hard this year, things with our family, extremely difficult things. Things I never thought I’d have to deal with. Things I still am not sure how to deal with. It is teaching me a lot though. Boundaries, self care, and changing the things I can and let go of what’s not mine to fix.

The truth is…..Hurting people hurt people.

Loved ones are not excluded. Sometimes they are most painful and the hardest to deal with because our heart is attached to them, our emotions, memories and so much baggage there. Learning what’s yours and what’s theirs to deal with is so important for your own health and sanity. I’ve always been one to come to the rescue, Mrs. Fix it to my own detriment. Can you relate? Do you try and “help” or “fix” people?

We almost lost my grandmother a couple months ago. Of course, with that comes uncertainty and stress from just dealing with the situation. Thankfully she has recovered. My Aunt called yesterday and my grandmother has had another episode but doesn’t seem to be nearly as bad but nonetheless please pray for her. She was actually able to go home yesterday afternoon, praise God. He’s so good!

A few weeks ago our sump pump backed up into the basement, praise God we caught it in time but it’s just another one of those distractions. We all have them, car repairs, washer goes out, etc. but it’s just the enemy trying to get you off course and discouraged.

Then last year we found mold in our air vents, I’m highly allergic to mold. We had it fixed or so we thought and had the Remy Halo installed. Which is supposed to take care of that. I’ve had tons of sinus infections, asthma, and bronchitis. I had to have sinus surgery last year, and one the year before which didn’t make anything better. I kept telling my hubby I was smelling something funny in our bathroom the last 2-3 months. It had gotten so bad I had to leave an inhaler in there. A couple of weeks ago I opened the vent up and there it was….mold😡 How in the world was there mold, I had a Remy installed??? That’s why I hadn’t gotten better. About 8 weeks prior to finding it, I was diagnosed with mold in my sinuses. Craziness I tell ya! But it all made sense now.

The AC people did some things that caused the problems and didn’t install my Remy Halo properly but praise God they owned up to it and are fixing it. But in the meantime, I couldn’t stay there any longer so I’ve been staying with my daughter and son-in-law and grand pups. They’ve been so good to me and hospitable but I’m ready to be home and I know they are ready to have their house back too. Zach has introduced me to PokemonGo so we’ve had a few nights out doing that LOL, it was so much fun. I’m such a nerd😂

I guess it’s at this point where I’ve realized, all the devil has been doing is distracting me with different things and trying to steal my JOY, trying to steal my strength. The same JOY and STRENGTH the Lord knew in December when He gave me the word, that I was gonna need for this particular season of my life.

But I’m here to serve the devil notice I WILL NO LONGER BE ALLOWING you TO STEAL MY JOY AND STRENGTH!

I love what Joyce Meyer says about joy, “Now this joy is not just a “happy feeling” based on our circumstances or on the things we possess-it is an unshakable stability in our inner man (spirit). Joy can range anywhere from a calm delight to extreme hilarity, and it is the joy of the Lord that is our strength (see Neh. 8:10)

Calm delight, I really like that! Anybody else needs some calm delight in their life?

It’s amazing to me how God knows what we need long before we need it. He knew I would need extra JOY to get through this season of my life. You may find yourself here today as well. Do you need some JOY or calm delight in your life? Do you need STRENGTH? You can’t have one without the other.

The Word says “….Do not grieve, for the joy of the Lord is your strength.”

Here is just a few verse I have been using to help me increase my JOY.

“The Lord your God is with you,
the Mighty Warrior who saves.
He will take great delight in you;
in his love he will no longer rebuke you,
but will rejoice over you with singing.” Zephaniah 3:17

“When anxiety was great within me,
your consolation brought me joy.” Psalm 94:19

“You are my hiding place;
you will protect me from trouble
and surround me with songs of deliverance.” Psalm 32:7

“A cheerful heart is good medicine,
but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.” Proverbs 17:22

“…..Do not grieve, for the joy of the Lord is your strength.” Nehemiah 8:10

Maybe someone is out there right now really struggling. You’ve lost your joy, peace, and strength. You feel like you just can’t go anymore and you feel like your in deepest darkest pit, everything is pulling at you and you just feel like your going under.

You might even feel all alone and that no one could possibly understand what you’re going through.

I’m here to remind you that God delights in you precious one and He is singing over you right now. He loves you and cares for you. He has a purpose for your life. He wants you to see things from his perspective.

God wants to renew your spirit, revive and refresh you. Fill you with purpose and passion. Let him come in and do what only He can do sweet friend. God bless you.

Big hugs,
