Pure Gold Nuggets

Trials deepen your relationship with God when you’re rooted in the Word. #puregold

In order to be “made” you have to go through the fire. #puregold

Sometimes you go through for your story, but it’s always  for God’s glory. #puregold

You can take it. You can survive it. You can thrive. Nothing can put out your fire. 🔥 You are the fire! You don’t even smell like smoke. #puregold

You may not fully understand these things that have happened to you. But, you understand who created you. When it’s all said and done, when the smoke clears, you’ll still be standing. You’ll be standing in abundance. #puregold

They think you’re done. They think you’re washed up. Everything has been burned to the ground. But in the midst of the rubble and the ashes, you’re still alive. Save your ashes. God will trade you your ashes for beauty. #puregold

God “ain’t” (has) never left you. What kind of parent do you think God is? Life wasn’t designed to always be easy and neither was it designed to always be hard. Take a closer look and tell me your good days don’t outweigh your bad days. Truth be told, better choices lead to better days. A better relationship with the Creator leads to better days. Treating people right leads to better days. #puregold

Sunday Morning Coffee Musings: Fueled By EGO

There is nothing more humbling than sitting in front of a large body of water. It truly puts you into perspective as to where you stand in relation to the Earth you live in and the sandy beaches you walk upon.

Recently, I was at a religious event and I could hardly stomach what was before me. Literally, my spirit was vexed to the point it was causing me to be physically disturbed. It was ego  in it’s purest form. I managed to stay until EGO sat down. Boy was I glad when “that” was over. The rest of the event was wonderful as graceful and powerful souls graced the podium.

Well, I pondered about that EGO as it seemed to do more of feeding it’s own flesh than souls and perhaps, even feeding the flesh of others…more flesh. Here is what was given to me by the Divine:

Some PASTOR (PREACH AND TEACH) for POWER and POSITION. Others PASTOR (PREACH AND TEACH) because they were called and anointed to do so. They PASTOR WITH ANOINTED AND APPOINTED PURPOSE. -Nicole Jackson

It doesn’t matter much how long you have been “in” the ministry if God is not operating “in” you. It’s either God or Ego and we shall know EGO by what proceeds out of your mouth and what is done in your flesh. -Nicole Jackson
