Created for Glory | Hestina’s Jewels

Today’s Word: Isaiah 43:7 (AMP) Even everyone who is called by My name, whom I have created for My glory, whom I have formed, whom I have made.

God created you to put His goodness and truth, and beauty and wisdom, and justice on display. He made you to magnify His greatness!

Isaiah reminds us that we–you–are created for the glory of God. When we revel in His glory, when we return to Him what is due…

Then shall your light break forth like the morning, and your healing (your restoration and the power of a new life) shall spring forth speedily; your righteousness (your rightness, your justice, and your right relationship with God) shall go before you [conducting you to peace and prosperity], and the glory of the Lord shall be your rear guard. Isaiah 58:8 (AMPC)

A Woman of Wisdom | Hestina’s Jewels

Happy Mother’s Day, Woman of God!

We celebrate all the Women, Mothers and the one who ever was a mother figure in your life. Maybe you were one the motherly figures, godmother, foster parent etc.

Today I encourage you: keep on being an awesome woman and mother! Continue to apply wisdom to your life situations.

Godly wisdom is defined as, “The ability to discern or judge what is true, right; a gift from God to view life from a spiritual perspective; by applying biblical principles in all areas of life.”

I believe that Wisdom and knowledge gives us the ability to make the right choices at the right time to help cope with our everyday life situations and circumstances.

We must always keep in mind that we need inspiration and wisdom and knowledge from heaven!

Pr.4:7 tells us (NKJV) Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.

  A Woman Of Wisdom

Proverbs 31:26-28 tells us (NKJV)She opens her mouth with wisdom, And on her tongue is the law of kindness.27 She watches over the ways of her household, And does not eat the bread of idleness.28 Her children rise up and call her blessed

In these scriptures we learn that a woman of wisdom takes good care of her children and household by addressing their physical, emotional, social, mental, and spiritual needs.

 Things A Woman Of Wisdom Does For Her Household

  • 26 She opens her mouth with wisdom
  • 26 She has the law of kindness on her tongue 
  • 27 She watches over the affairs of her household 
  • 27 She does not eat the bread of idleness
  • 28 Her children rise up and call her blessed

She loves her children and family dearly and will try to be the best person she can be for their sake.

You Are A Winner!!

The Power of Peace | Hestina’s Jewels

Hello Beautiful Ones!

In a world of uncertainty, angst, pandemics, and every pressing thing on every side, I want to you know this: God is concerned about YOU. He is concerned about YOUR family. He is concerned about YOUR well-being. And even though things may look like they’re falling apart or going every which way but the right way, God’s promises for your life will always come to pass.

This is where peace comes in.  

Peace is power. It is “freedom from disquieting or oppressive thoughts” that infringe on our faith and growth. Peace is a disruptor to fear, anxiety or worry. It anchors us – securing us firmly in place so that we are not easily shaken or intimidated. 

God’s peace surpasses all understanding. If we allow it, peace can permeate every facet of our lives paving the way for our faith to grow – for our trust in God to deepen.

[Most] blessed is the man who believes in, trusts in, and relies on the  Lord, and whose hope and confidence the Lord is. Jeremiah 17:7 (AMP)

Beautiful One, God knew you when you were in the womb (Jeremiah 1:5). He approved of you as His chosen instrument, and before you were born He set you apart. 

You are unique and wonderfully made. You are created by a God who loves and cares for you. I encourage you to allow His peace to anchor you during your storm.

And let the peace (soul harmony which comes) from Christ rule (act as umpire continually) in your hearts [deciding and settling with finality all questions that arise in your minds, in that peaceful state] to which as [members of Christ’s] one body you were also called [to live]. And be thankful (appreciative), [giving praise to God always]. Colossians 3:15 (AMP) 

Remember, God is for you (Romans 8:31), God is with you, and He is ALWAYS on your side. Let His peace lead you from faith to faith, and glory to glory!

Blessing &  Love From My Heart To Yours,

The Blessing of Peace | Hestina’s Jewels

Beautiful Ones, today’s word gem consists of three words making up one phrase: “blessed with peace.”

I know what you’re thinking “peace is a blessing?” It certainly is. Here’s how.

You ever have one of those days where wrong was the only right that happened in your day? The kind of day that made you rethink why you had children, started school, took on a new project, or volunteered to help on that assignment. We’ve all been there—some of us longer than others—but when those moments subside and all goes back to being calmer—more tranquil? Whew!

Doesn’t it feel like being wrapped in a warm blanket fresh out the dryer on a frigid day? Can you picture that deep exhale? That collective sigh of release with a sprinkle of relaxation and ease? That’s peace. That’s the blessing. And you know what? We’re happier for it.

The Lord will give [unyielding and impenetrable] strength to His people; The Lord will bless His people with peace. Psalm 29:11

And that’s not all. Peace in this passage denotes completeness, wholeness, health, peace, welfare, safety, soundness, tranquility, prosperity, perfectness, fullness, rest, harmony, as well as the absence of agitation or discord.

The absence of agitation or discord. Rest. Safety.

I don’t know about you, but this type of peace seems like the kind of thing we all need. It sounds like the kind of thing that would be a blessing to a weary soul. Like a fresh wind on a stale day. Wouldn’t you agree?

Five Declarations to Bless Your Life | Hestina’s Jewels

Praise the Lord Beautiful Ones!

The dictionary defines the word bless this way, “to pronounce words in a religious rite, to confer or invoke divine favor upon; to ask God to look favorably on someone or something.” That’s right. We can invoke God’s blessing and favor in our lives by simply asking Him, by declaring affirmations that align with God’s word and His promises to each of us.

Let’s say these aloud together:

I declare God’s blessings over my life. I am blessed beyond measure and favored by God. I rest confidently knowing that regardless of what my circumstances look like now, my latter days will be greater than my former days.

I declare restoration and healing are at work within me. Because I am healing through past pains and disappointments, I can release old offenses. I can enjoy renewed and healthy connections with my family and friends.

I declare that God will give me the desires of my heart. I align with God’s abundance, supernatural provision, and direction for my life. As I trust God, I enlarge my faith, knowing that no good thing will be withheld from me.

I declare that God will make all my plans successful. Trusting in the Lord means I will not be put to shame. It means that with God ordering my steps, success is imminent. I deserve to experience the best that God has for me.

I declare good health and soul-wellness is for me. I take care of my body, rest when tired, and eat foods that nourish me. I make time for prayer. I make time to have fun. I make time for myself.

May these affirmations release blessings and joy in your life!

Blessings & love from my heart to yours,

Pray Over Your Family | Hestina’s Jewels

Beautiful Ones, I encourage you to pray over your family.

Being a family means you are a part of something very wonderful. It means you will love and be loved for the rest of your life.

So today, I want to encourage you to stop and take time out to pray this over your wonderful family.

Pray that your family would have divine protection and that no harm would come to any member. Pray for their desire to dwell in the shelter of the Most High and to trust God for strength in hardship.

Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. Psalm 91:1

Pray that your family would have a shield of protection against temptation, and they would always be on guard, standing firm in faith. May your family learn to stand firm on God’s promises and refute temptation with God’s word.

Be on guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong. 1 Corinthians 16:13

We thank you Lord for answering our prayers! We believe it. We receive it, now, in Jesus’ name!

Just Keep Running

Praise the Lord Beautiful Ones!

Today’s word jewel:  Run With Endurance

Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a huge crowd of witnesses to the life of faith, let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up. And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us.

Hebrew 12:1

Beautiful Ones, strip off every weight that’s slowing you down, every care that keeps you burdened, distracted or fearful. We are created in God’s image. We are created to endure and run our race knowing that we are never alone. Success is ours. Joy is ours.

Let’s pray…

Father, as we run the race you set before us, let us run with endurance, not allowing anything or anyone to distract us from being successful in life, from fulfilling our purpose in the earth. Be a lamp to our feet and a compass for our lives. 

Blessings & Love from my heart to yours,
