Who Needs Comfort? Well, You.

​Blessings and love Beautiful Ones,

Comfort is defined as “the state of physical ease, freedom from pain or constraint. The easing of a person’s grief or distress; to console.” Let’s pause and think on that for a moment.

Now let’s read that again.

The easing of a person’s grief or distress.

Thirty-six characters. Eight words. One powerful statement. 

In the wake of turmoil, unrest, and escalating events that often leave us gasping for a breath – searching for a way out – hoping for a little reprieve, these eight simple words offer us a lifeline.

The LORD himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.

Deuteronomy 31:8

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God.

2 Corinthian 1:3-4

Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.

Psalms 23:4

God is with us. God will comfort us.  

Two sentences. Two phrases designed to breathe peace into our hearts and bring about a collective exhale of relief. We’re not alone. Comfort is our birthright. And we can allow the Lover of our souls to wrap us in it, at will.

His promises are yes and amen. Let the Comforter strengthen and relieve you of your distress and your grief. You’ll be so glad you did.

7 Declarations that Speak Life and Create Hope

Praise the Lord Beautiful Ones!

Yes you can. Yes you will. Yes, you are enough.

Sometimes, we need a gentle nudge or tap, a reminder, that we are forever connected to God’s love. We are made in the very image of that love—a love that is everlasting and unfailing. And as image bearers, it’s important that we speak from a place steeped in love, gentleness, acceptance and truth, not solely for others, but also for ourselves.

It’s important that we speak life, encouragement and declarations that reaffirm what we already know: God is able to 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. Ephesians 3:20

Beautiful Ones, our words have power. Let’s use them to build us up, not tear us down. These seven declarations can help.

7 Declarations that Speak Life

  • I declare God’s blessings over my life. His abundance is all around me.
  • I declare that I will have a great week.
  • I declare I will enjoy life, and that more abundantly, with family and friends.
  • I declare that me and my family’s week be filled with love, peace, joy, and rest. 
  • I declare that God will give me the desires of my heart.
  • I declare that God will make all my plans successful.
  • I declare good health and inner healing for me and my family. 

Remember, in Jesus you will always win in life!!

Blessings & love from my heart to yours,

Praise the Lord All You Great People!

Today’s Word Gem: We were created for God’s Glory.

I will confess and praise You, O Lord my God, with my whole (united) heart; and I will glorify your name forevermore. Psalms 86:12 (AMPC) 

Child of God, the book of Isaiah is clear: I, we, YOU, were created to glorify—attest to the magnificence of God.

When we glorify Him—bring Him honor through our words, actions and thoughts—we acknowledge His majesty. We openly and boldly confess that we value and esteem Him above all else. Not out of obligation, but sincere gratitude.

God made us to magnify His greatness and glory! So, continue to glorify Him through your faith (trust), and your your obedience.

Comfort is defined as “a state of physical ease and freedom from pain or constraint. The easing or alleviation of a person’s feelings of grief or distress.

In simple terms, to comfort means to “lessen the sadness or sorrow of someone and to strengthen by inspiring with hope and restoring a cheerful outlook. To make grief or distress seem lighter, by means of kindness and thoughtful attentions.”

I will not leave you as orphans [comfortless, desolate, bereaved, forlorn, helpless]; I will come [back] to you. John 14:18 (AMPC)

The Word of God is clear: God never forsakes us. He never leaves us. And His strength and love will keep you–us–every day. All we need do is run to the Source–the One–who promised “Lo, I am with you always.”

If you are overcome with grief, sadness, helpless or feeling comfortless, RUN to the Father, today! RUN into God’s open arms and trust Him to breathe comfort, healing and strength into your lungs. He is faithful. He is willing. And He is waiting for you.

Dwell in Safety | Hestina’s Jewels

Glory To God All You Great People!!

A beautiful reminder: There is safety when we abide in the presence of God!

The beloved of the Lord shall dwell in safety by Him, Who shelters him all the daylong. Deuteronomy 33:12 (NKJV)

 I will abide in Your tabernacle forever; I will trust in the shelter of Your wings. Psalm 61:4 (NKJV)

Gems, we can trust in the shelter of the Almighty’s wings. We are His beloved and because of this we can dwell in safety. We can feel safe when life tosses us to and fro. We can feel safe even when it feels like things are falling apart. Why? Because His Spirit of Truth is living in us – guiding and protecting us – as we live our life in tandem with the Word.

Pray with me: 

Lord, we are seeking your guidance and your protection. Instruct us in your ways. Teach us the way to go. Order our steps Gracious God that we may walk therein. Let your wisdom lead us and your protection keep us. Preserve our hearts and lives from evil, Sweet Lord and preserve our souls. In the matchless name of Jesus, we pray…amen.

I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with My eye.” Psalms 32:8 (NKJV)

The Lord shall preserve you from all evil; He shall preserve your soul. The Lord shall preserve your going out and your coming in From this time forth, and even forevermore.” Psalms 121:7-8 (NKJV)

Praise The Lord For Guidance And Protection You!!
