Bruised Not Broken

Bruised Not Broken

By Destini Jackson
We all have stories to tell and as I share mine on this platform, you may find a key to unlock you from whatever it is that may be holding you back. Broken things can never fully be fixed when you think logically, but with the power of the Lord what if what was broke was actually bruised?

To have peace or to not...
Peace is not a skill we obtain on our own by walking in nature, no peace isn't found in waterfalls or in flowers. Peace belongs to God and stems from Him, the only way we can get it is if we start obeying the Spirit.

Stop for a moment
If you are the kind of person that stays on GO mode because the hustle is the motive, tune in and listen to what God has to say to you today. Being on go is not always healthy and when we don't know the difference between health and wealth we'll start to place our life in temporary things or even people.  Instagram: @Herdevotion Website:

Virtual Reality
Stop idolizing what you see and start prioritizing the God who gives you all. The relationships around you can bear fruit if you water it with the source of righteousness. Why is it that we look at celebrities through a different looking glass but view ourselves as a victim of someone else's error. You can't sit behind the anger of the past, no more holding on to the grudges of yesterday. Let go by letting love win!

Give up less and gain more
What are you sacrificing for Lent? What do you spend most of your time or money on that could be spent on more productive things? Now don't just give up something that doesn't really come at a cost to you just because you want the Lord to bless you. Think about it like this: what could you do less of that promotes a more healthy way of living? Lent season opens you up to three major things: 1. Fasting & Repentance 2. Reflection 3. Self-Discipline

Empty Cries
Put your words where your heart is. In today's episode we discuss the importance of praise and how we must keep God as our first response and not our last resort. Have you ever cried out to God, but feel like He isn't hearing you? It's probably because you cried to man first and when you seen that their idols didn't work you then sought God. Or it may be because your heart's posture doesn't match the words spilling off of your tongue. Tune in to hear more.  Instagram: @Herdevotion Website:

One on One
Intimacy is found in your one on one time with the Lord. Maybe the reason you are anxious about being alone is because no one has told you how valuable you are outside of other people.

We will talk about removing the fear of missing out with people and replace it with the fear of missing out with God.  Instagram: @Herdevotion Website: Join the 21 Day Supernatural Fast Program by heading over to my website!

Strong and Tender
It's okay to let your guard down, sometimes you have to fall apart so better things can take place.

Tune in with me and learn how to balance between being strong and also being weak. Because it's in the midst of your weakness where God's power is displayed.

Half Time
How we played in the first half is nothing compared to what you can do in the second half. Half of 2020 is over, but we still got months left.
