There is Nothing More Beautiful than Knowing Your Worth by Elissa Gabrielle

THERE’S NOTHING MORE BEAUTIFUL THAN KNOWING YOUR WORTH…but if you’re not on a journey to become completely whole, you may not recognize it.

Here’s the thing. People’s opinions of you, whether good, bad or indifferent must not outweigh the opinion and belief you have in yourself.

Growth hurts but also the regret of remaining the same. You want to surround yourself with people that upon learning of your story’s worst chapter, (we all have a chapter we don’t want read aloud) they won’t hold you hostage because of it. The people to keep around are the ones that will challenge you to be your best self – it will hurt, as evolution is never smooth. They will identify their brokenness and assure you that you can be put back together just like they were, even if you are shattered in a million pieces.

Stay clear of those who want you to serve a life sentence based on past failures and always remember, fall down twenty times, rise twenty-one. People that want to tie a noose around your neck are manipulators and usually lack so much in their own personal character that they wind up feeding off your glory. Shed the shame and release those burdens.

YOUR GLORY… How can you be broken and still have it? The detractors will identify something in you oftentimes way before you even recognize it. They will despise you on a level you didn’t even know you were on.

Your initial instinct is always correct – that’s your Spirit of discernment guiding you. Obey it.

You are stronger than your storms, more beautiful than you realize, smarter than you’ve been told and most importantly, you deserve all of the goodness and abundance of blessings waiting for you to take hold of it.

Fearfully and wonderfully made you are and to deem yourself anything less than would be blasphemy.
Don’t be afraid to live your best life.

Love & Light

Do You Have a Garden? by Elissa Gabrielle

ElissaGabrielleBlackHeadShotBrickDO YOU HAVE A GARDEN?

The purpose of a garden is to plant, cultivate and nurture whatever it is that you are trying to grow so that in time you will be able to enjoy a harvest.

Put yourself on the list, Beloveds. I want you all to create a garden. And if you have a garden, encourage someone to create their very own. No one has to know about your garden. Your garden will be one or multiple things in your life that you want to fulfill. It can be your Secret Garden. A secret garden where there will be no vultures or snakes or anything that can attack it, because it belongs to you and you will keep quiet about the Harvest you are praying for and working to build. A garden where you plant your ideas, hopes, dreams for your future. Not only will you plant those hopes and dreams, you will tend to those goals daily in your garden.

Whether the goal is to be on a journey to become completely whole by way of spirit, soul and body, or to increase your finances, your education or to pursue one of your life’s purposes, you must do so by stepping outside of your comfort zone and stepping into your very own garden.

Get to planting, Beloveds.

I Love you to Life.

Always and in All Ways,
Elissa Gabrielle

Who Sits On The Throne of Your Heart?

sheriblkandwAlas, it happened! All that you had been praying for, waiting for, and expecting God to do for you has arrived! However, after a few months, the novelty  of it all begins to wear off and you find yourself in the same place of discontentment, despondency, discouragement, and depression that you were in prior to the blessings being released in your life. How can this POSSIBLY BE?  This can happen when our heart has been convinced that material things and circumstances have the power to fill voids in our lives that only God himself can fill!

Women, a husband, a child, a house, career advancements, and even ministry advancements cannot fill the emptiness that we experience at times. God has allowed the emptiness to exist as a means of drawing us closer to Him. Many of us have allowed our craving for THINGS to become our central focus and thus have  ejected God from sitting on the throne of our hearts! This is why once we have obtained the things that we always desired our happiness only remains momentarily.

Material possessions will decay and people who we have pledged our allegiance to may disappoint us, however, God will always be a present help for us in our time of trouble. When God is allowed to sit on the throne of our hearts, “life can happen”, but we will not allow it to damage our positive outlook or our faith in God’s sovereignty.

Remember this: (Isaiah 6(b)-8) NLT
“people are like the grass.  Their beauty fades as quickly as the flowers in a field.

The grass withers and the flowers fade beneath the breath of the Lord.  And so it is with people.

The grass withers and the flowers fade, but the word of our God stands forever.”

Heart Conditions

Sheriblkjacket     Who have you entrusted to handle your heart and the things that mean the most to you? Many women have been mislead by those who have pretended to care about their most intimate thoughts and dreams only to experience the sting of betrayal in return. The most costly and devastating investment that we can make is to place our hearts into calloused hands.

Perhaps you have experienced the pain of being broken-hearted. Instead of retreating and refusing to love or to trust again, I encourage you to pour your heart out to God about the things that matter the most to you. I guarantee you that He will not mishandle or abuse you. He will not use you for His pleasure and then cast you away. You are too precious in His eyes and He loves you too  much.

Remember this:

Proverbs 4:23
Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life.
