Keep A Heavenly Perspective
Don’t magnify your pains, worries, problems, or needs Magnify God “Let God be magnified!”~Psalm 70:4 #HeavenlyPerspective
October 30, 2020
Holiness & Honor
Each of you know how to control his own body in holiness and honor [being available for God’s purpose and separated from things profane], —1 Thessalonians 4:4 AMP
October 29, 2020
The Real Life
But you, dear friends, carefully build yourselves up in this most holy faith by praying in the Holy Spirit, staying right at the center of God’s love, keeping your arms open and outstretched, ready for the mercy of our Master, Jesus Christ. This is the unending life, the real life! -Jude 1:20-21 MSG
October 28, 2020
Comfort For Mourning
Two For Tuesday! - Blessed are those who mourn for they will be comforted. — Matthew 5:4 He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away. -Revelation 2:14
October 27, 2020
The Best Dressed
Trust in God’s provision and not our own limited resources. The very best dressed are still no match for the Lord’s Lilies! God provides for every flower in the field. Consider the lilies and wildflowers, how they grow [in the open field]. They neither labor nor spin [wool to make clothing]; yet I tell you, not even Solomon in all his glory and splendor dressed himself like one of these. —Luke 12:27 AMP ~XXOO Michelle
October 26, 2020
Don’t Be Deceived
Live creatively, friends. If someone falls into sin, forgivingly restore him, saving your critical comments for yourself. You might be needing forgiveness before the day’s out. Stoop down and reach out to those who are oppressed. Share their burdens, and so complete Christ’s law. If you think you are too good for that, you are badly deceived. - Galatians 6:2-3 Message
October 23, 2020
Casual Idolatry Is Lethal
I hate the two-faced, but I love your clear-cut revelation. You’re my place of quiet retreat; I wait for your Word to renew me. Get out of my life, evildoers, so I can keep my God’s commands. Take my side as you promised; I’ll live then for sure. Don’t disappoint all my grand hopes. Stick with me and I’ll be all right; I’ll give total allegiance to your definitions of life. Expose all who drift away from your sayings; their casual idolatry is lethal. You reject earth’s wicked as so much rubbish; therefore I lovingly embrace everything you say. I shiver in awe before you; your decisions leave me speechless with reverence. — Psalm 119:114 Message
October 22, 2020
Rather, let our lives lovingly express truth [in all things, speaking truly, dealing truly, living truly]. Enfolded in love, let us grow up in every way and in all things into Him Who is the Head, [even] Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One). (Ephesians 4:15 AMP)
October 21, 2020
God’s Grace
It is always enough! “My Grace is sufficient for you!” — 2 Corinthians 12:9
October 20, 2020
All Times
A friend loves at all times. — Proverbs 17:17
October 19, 2020
The Way To Live
But what happens when we live God’s way? He brings gifts into our lives, much the same way that fruit appears in an orchard—things like affection for others, exuberance about life, serenity. We develop a willingness to stick with things, a sense of compassion in the heart, and a conviction that a basic holiness permeates things and people. We find ourselves involved in loyal commitments, not needing to force our way in life, able to marshal and direct our energies wisely. Legalism is helpless in bringing this about; it only gets in the way. Among those who belong to Christ, everything connected with getting our own way and mindlessly responding to what everyone else calls necessities is killed off for good—crucified. (Galatians 5:22-24 MSG)
October 16, 2020
Banish Fear & Doubt
Yes, be bold and strong! Banish fear and doubt! For remember, the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” — Joshua 1:9 TLB
October 15, 2020
Too Many To Count
Many, O Lord my God, are the wonderful works which You have done, And Your thoughts toward us; There is none to compare with You. If I would declare and speak of your wonders, They would be too many to count. —Psalm 40:5 AMP
October 14, 2020
Willing & Obedient
“If you are willing and obedient, You shall eat the best of the land; —Isaiah 1:19 AMP If you have a willing heart to let me help you, and if you will obey me, you will feast on the blessings of an abundant harvest. —Isaiah 1:19 TPT
October 13, 2020
Don’t Beat Around The Bush
“Don’t bargain with God. Be direct. Ask for what you need. This is not a cat-and-mouse, hide-and-seek game we’re in. — Luke 11:13 MSG
October 12, 2020
Bring Every Act To Judgement
For God will bring every act to judgment, every hidden and secret thing, whether it is good or evil. —Ecclesiastes 12:14 AMP
October 9, 2020
Not One Goes Rogue
You’ve kept track of all my wandering and my weeping. You’ve stored my many tears in your bottle—not one will be lost. For they are all recorded in your book of remembrance. —Psalm 56:8 Remember! weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning. - Psalm 30:5
October 8, 2020
All Loss Is A Greater Gain
Every great life has had in it some great renunciation. So it is always: real sacrifice, unto complete surrender of self, brings to us the revelation of God in His fullness. O’ how it changes everything for us thereafter from famine to royal abundance! —L.B. Cowman I have lost all things….that I may gain Christ. — Philippians 3:8
October 7, 2020
No Favorites
For God shows no partiality [undue favor or unfairness; with Him one man is not different from another.] — Romans 2:11 AMP ( other translations also say one person is not more important than another) He Has No Favorites!
October 6, 2020
Have A Need?
He Will Deliver The Needy! - Psalm 72:12 when you have a need - you also have this promise!
October 5, 2020
Passing Judgement
Therefore you have no excuse or justification, everyone of you who [hypocritically] judges and condemns others; for in passing judgment on another person, you condemn yourself, because you who judge [from a position of arrogance or self-righteousness] are habitually practicing the very same things [which you denounce]. And we know that the judgment of God falls justly and in accordance with truth on those who practice such things. —Romans 2:1-2 AMP
October 2, 2020
We All Fall Short
Yes, ALL have sinned; ALL fall short of God’s glorious ideal;—Romans 3:23 TLB
October 1, 2020
Yet There Is One Ray Of Hope
Yet there is one ray of hope: His compassion never ends. It is only the Lord’s mercies that have kept us from complete destruction. Great is his faithfulness; his loving-kindness begins afresh each day. —Lamentations 3:21-23 TLB
September 30, 2020
A Precious Jewel
There is gold, and abundance of costly stones; but the lips of knowledge are a precious jewel. — Proverbs 20:15 RSV
September 29, 2020
Trolls - What To Do?
Psalm 119:165 - best when sung... “Great peace have they who love thy law and nothing shall offend them!” That’s how we handle internet trolls - keep scrolling and delete!
September 28, 2020
No Rogue Thoughts
Be transformed by the renewing of your mind. —Romans 12:2
September 25, 2020
Be Kind - You Won’t Regret It!
“I tell you, love your enemies. Help and give without expecting a return. You’ll never—I promise—regret it. Live out this God-created identity the way our Father lives toward us, generously and graciously, even when we’re at our worst. Our Father is kind; you be kind. — Luke 6:36 MSG
September 24, 2020
It was for freedom that Christ set us free! — Galatians 5:1
September 23, 2020
As Good As Done
Jesus was matter-of-fact: “Embrace this God-life. Really embrace it, and nothing will be too much for you. This mountain, for instance: Just say, ‘Go jump in the lake’—no shuffling or shilly-shallying—and it’s as good as done. That’s why I urge you to pray for absolutely everything, ranging from small to large. Include everything as you embrace this God-life, and you’ll get God’s everything. And when you assume the posture of prayer, remember that it’s not all asking. If you have anything against someone, forgive —only then will your heavenly Father be inclined to also wipe your slate clean of sins.” — Mark 11:24 MSG
September 22, 2020
The Run Of The House
God is love. When we take up permanent residence in a life of love, we live in God and God lives in us. This way, love has the run of the house, becomes at home and mature in us, so that we’re free of worry on Judgment Day—our standing in the world is identical with Christ’s. There is no room in love for fear. Well-formed love banishes fear. Since fear is crippling, a fearful life—fear of death, fear of judgment—is one not yet fully formed in love. — 1 John 4:18 MSG
September 21, 2020
Guard & Avoid
Guard what God has entrusted to you. Avoid godless, foolish discussions with those who oppose you with their so-called knowledge.— 1 Timothy 6:20
September 18, 2020
Not Cautious But Extravagant
Watch what God does, and then you do it, like children who learn proper behavior from their parents. Mostly what God does is love you. Keep company with him and learn a life of love. Observe how Christ loved us. His love was not cautious but extravagant. He didn’t love in order to get something from us but to give everything of himself to us. Love like that. - Ephesians 5:1-2
September 17, 2020
You Are Never Alone
Jesus himself came up and walked along with them. — Luke 24:15
September 16, 2020
Tremendous Power
Therefore, confess your sins to one another [your false steps, your offenses], and pray for one another, that you may be healed and restored. The heartfelt and persistent prayer of a righteous man (believer) can accomplish much [when put into action and made effective by God—it is dynamic and can have tremendous power]. —James 5:16 AMP
September 15, 2020
Strengthen Your Hearts
You too, be patient; strengthen your hearts [keep them energized and firmly committed to God], because the coming of the Lord is near.— James 5:8 AMP
September 14, 2020
Blessed Are Those Who Mourn
Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted. —Matthew 5:4. He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away. —Revelation 21:4
September 11, 2020
The Royal Law
My fellow believers, do not practice your faith in our glorious Lord Jesus Christ with an attitude of partiality [toward people—show no favoritism, no prejudice, no snobbery]. —James 2:1 AMP If, however, you are [really] fulfilling the royal law according to the Scripture, “ You shall love your neighbor as yourself [that is, if you have an unselfish concern for others and do things for their benefit]” you are doing well. But if you show partiality [prejudice, favoritism], you are committing sin and are convicted by the Law as offenders. —James 2:8-9 AMP
September 10, 2020
All Will Know
By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another. — John 13:35
September 9, 2020
Assuredly Not
Let your character [your moral essence, your inner nature] be free from the love of money [shun greed—be financially ethical], being content with what you have; for He has said, “ I will never [under any circumstances] desert you [nor give you up nor leave you without support, nor will I in any degree leave you helpless], nor will I forsake or let you down or relax My hold on you [assuredly not]!” —Hebrews 13:5 AMP
September 8, 2020
The Race Set Before Us
Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of [a]witnesses [who by faith have testified to the truth of God’s absolute faithfulness], stripping off every unnecessary weight and the sin which so easily and cleverly entangles us, let us run with endurance and active persistence the race that is set before us, 2 [looking away from all that will distract us and] focusing our eyes on Jesus, who is the Author and Perfecter of faith [the first incentive for our belief and the One who brings our faith to maturity], who for the joy [of accomplishing the goal] set before Him endured the cross, [b]disregarding the shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God [revealing His deity, His authority, and the completion of His work].(A) Just consider and meditate on Him who endured from sinners such bitter hostility against Himself [consider it all in comparison with your trials], so that you will not grow weary and lose heart. — Hebrews 12:1-3 AMP
September 7, 2020
Fearless Confidence
Do you not therefore fling away your [fearless ]confidence, for it has a glorious and great reward. For you have need of patient endurance [to bear up under difficult circumstances without compromising,]so that when you have carried out the will of God, you may receive and enjoy to the full what is promised. — Hebrews 10:35-36 AMP
September 4, 2020
Energizing & Effective
For the word of God is living and active and full of power [making it operative, energizing, and effective. ]It is sharper than any two edge sword, penetrating as far as the division of the soul and spirit [the completeness of a person ]and of both joints and marrow [the deepest parts of our nature ]exposing and judging the very thoughts and intentions of the heart. — Hebrews 4:12
September 3, 2020

September 2, 2020
The Basics
The Golden Rule - treat others as you would like to be treated. And John 15:17 - This is My command: love each other!
September 1, 2020
Real Privilege
Therefore let us [with privilege] approach the throne of grace [that is the throne of God‘s gracious favor] with confidence and without fear, so that we may receive mercy [for our failures] and find [His amazing ] grace to help us in time of need [an appropriate blessing, coming just at the right moment]. —Hebrews 4:16 AMP
August 31, 2020
The Peril Of Unbelief
The Peril Of Unbelief Take care, brothers and sisters, that there not be in any one of you a wicked, unbelieving heart [which refuses to trust and rely on the Lord, a heart] that turns away from the living God. But continually encourage one another every day, as long as it is called “Today” [and there is an opportunity], so that none of you will be hardened [into settled rebellion] by the deceitfulness of sin [its cleverness, delusive glamour, and sophistication]. For we [believers] have become partakers of Christ [sharing in all that the Messiah has for us], if only we hold firm our newborn confidence [which originally led us to Him] until the end, —Hebrews 3:12-14 AMP
August 28, 2020
Don’t Be Worthless
To the pure, all things are pure; but to the corrupt and unbelieving, nothing is pure; both their mind and their conscience are corrupted. They profess to know God [to recognize and be acquainted with him]but by their actions they deny and disown him. They are detestable and disobedient and worthless for good work of any kind. — Titus 1:15-16 AMP
August 27, 2020

A Warrior Who Saves

August 24, 2020
When Your Soul Is In The Dumps
When my soul is in the dumps, I rehearse everything I know of you, From Jordan depths to Hermon heights, including Mount Mizar. Chaos calls to chaos, to the tune of whitewater rapids. Your breaking surf, your thundering breakers crash and crush me. Then GOD promises to love me all day, sing songs all through the night! My life is God’s prayer. - Psalm 42:8
August 21, 2020
A Faithful & Trustworthy Saying
This is a faithful and trustworthy saying: if we died with Him, we will also live with Him; if we endure, we will also reign with Him; if we deny Him, He will also deny us; if we are faithless, He remains faithful [true to his word and His righteous character], for He cannot deny Himself. — 2 Timothy 2:11-13 AMP
August 20, 2020
Guard With Greatest Care
Guard (with greatest care)and keep unchanged, the treasure (that precious truth) which has been entrusted to you (that is, the good news about salvation through personal faith in Christ Jesus), through (the help of)the Holy Spirit who dwells in us. — 2 Timothy 1:14 AMP
August 19, 2020

August 14, 2020
Regardless Of Life’s Circumstances

August 13, 2020
Encourage The Exhausted

August 12, 2020
1 Thessalonians 5 - My 3 Today

But with God everything is possible.” ~ Mark 10:27

August 5, 2020
Pseudo Intellectual Babble

July 24, 2020
Pleasure & Favor

July 16, 2020
You Might Be A Slave
They promise them freedom, but they themselves are not free. They are slaves of things that will be destroyed. For people are slaves of anything that controls them. (2 Peter 2:19 NCV) what is controlling you? Don’t be a slave anymore - break free from them and walk in true freedom with Christ!

More Questions Than Answers

Keep seeking Tune out the loud deafening voices of this world and Tune in to the still small voice of the Lord. -XXOO Michelle If any of you lacks wisdom [to guide him through a decision or circumstance], he is to ask of [our benevolent] God, who gives to everyone generously and without rebuke or blame, and it will be given to him. But he must ask [for wisdom] in faith, without doubting [God’s willingness to help], for the one who doubts is like a billowing surge of the sea that is blown about and tossed by the wind. For such a person ought not to think or expect that he will receive anything [at all] from the Lord, being a double-minded man, unstable and restless in all his ways [in everything he thinks, feels, or decides]. —James 1:5-8 AMP ....“I do believe, but help me overcome my unbelief!” —Mark 9:24 NLT Unbelief puts our circumstances between us and God.

Heavenly Merits
O Lord, you have searched me [thoroughly] and have known me. You know when I sit down and when I rise up [my entire life, everything I do]; You understand my thought from afar. You scrutinize my path and my lying down, And You are intimately acquainted with all my ways. Even before there is a word on my tongue [still unspoken], Behold, O Lord, You know it all.

These things I plan won't happen right away. Slowly, steadily, surely, the time approaches when the vision will be fulfilled. If it seems slow, do not despair, for these things will surely come to pass. Just be patient! They will not be overdue a single day! Habakkuk 2:3 (LB) Remember how far you've come, not just how far you have to go. ~ XXOO Michelle #LiveRestored #MindBodySoul Restored Ministries

Attention, all! See the marvels of GOD! He plants flowers and trees all over the earth, Bans war from pole to pole, breaks all the weapons across his knee. “Step out of the traffic! Take a long, loving look at me, your High God, above politics, above everything.” - Psalm 46:10

Shame’s Power
God values us no matter what we do or what we have done. He sees our value even when others don't. He loves us beyond anything we could imagine. Surrender to God and allow Him to lift off the shame you feel. He will make you stand firm and without fear. God is the only One that rescues us from shame's power. Then you will lift up your face without shame; you will stand firm and without fear. ~ Job 11:15

Count It All Joy
Consider it nothing but joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you fall into various trials. Be assured that the testing of your faith [through experience] produces endurance [leading to spiritual maturity, and inner peace]. And let endurance have its perfect result and do a thorough work, so that you may be perfect and completely developed [in your faith], lacking in nothing. —James 1:2-4 AMP

What Makes You Attractive

Radiant Hope
Even if a king has the best-equipped army, it would never be enough to save him. Even if the best warrior went to battle, he could not be saved simply by his strength alone. Human strength and the weapons of man are false hopes for victory; they may seem mighty but they will always disappoint. The eyes of the Lord are upon even the weakest worshipers who love him— those who wait in hope and expectation for the strong, steady love of God. God will deliver them from death, even the certain death of famine, with no one to help. The Lord alone is our radiant hope and we trust in him with all our hearts. His wrap-around presence will strengthen us. As we trust, we rejoice with an uncontained joy flowing from Yahweh! Let your love and steadfast kindness overshadow us continually, for we trust and we wait upon you! —Psalm 33:16-22 TPT
June 1, 2020
I love that word! More majestic than the thunders of mighty waters, more majestic than the waves of the sea, majestic on high is the Lord! —Psalm 93:4 NRSV

May 28, 2020
Blessings & Curses
Blessings and Curses should not occupy the same space in your heart. Abstain from evil [shrink from it and keep aloof from it] in whatever form or whatever kind it may be. — 1 Thessalonians 5:22 AMP
May 27, 2020
Be Discerning- Not Condemning
"Judge not the workings of his brain, And of his heart you cannot see. What looks to thy dim eyes a stain, In God's pure light may only be A scar brought from some well-won field Where thou wouldst only faint and yield." Let's be discerning, but not condemning! ~Unknown "Judge not, lest you be judged." (Matthew 7:1)
May 26, 2020
Pleasing & Acceptable
We may have trained our words and actions to be pleasing and acceptable to God, but what about our thoughts and passions? And “every movement of our heart”... are they pure and pleasing? *** So, may the words of my mouth, my meditation-thoughts, and every movement of my heart be always pure and pleasing, acceptable before Your eyes, my only Redeemer, my Protector-God. ~Psalm 19:14 TPT

3 Things We Must Do
We don't yet see things clearly. We're squinting in a fog, peering through a mist. But it won't be long before the weather clears and the sun shines bright! We'll see it all then, see it all as clearly as God sees us, knowing him directly just as he knows us! But for right now, until that completeness, we have three things to do to lead us toward that consummation: Trust steadily in God, hope unswervingly, love extravagantly. And the best of the three is love. (1 Corinthians 13:12, 13 MSG)

Truths That Transform
Scripture knows no boundaries. Regardless of sex or race or age - The Word of God rescues and restores ALL. There is no problem you can't overcome with the Power of His Holy Spirit and the Promises in His Word. Let His Truths Transform your life. #LiveRestored Before time itself was measured, the Voice was speaking. The Voice was and is God. ~John 1:1 THE VOICE In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God;~John 1:1 YLT
May 20, 2020
Give Up Our Rights
Hurting others is the only rights we should give up ... Hatred stirs up dissension, but love covers over all wrongs. Proverbs 10:12 Forgiveness is surrendering my right to hurt you for hurting me. --Archibald Hart Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance. 1 Corinthians 13:7 (NLT)
May 19, 2020
Freely & Graciously
If you haven't had a need met yet, ask yourself... Would God view this as a true need? He may be delaying until a more appropriate time. Trust God's wisdom rather than doubting His goodness. If we have a genuine need and bring it to the Lord, He will surely meet it. After all, what could He possibly deny us after giving us Jesus. He who did not withhold or spare [even] His own Son but gave Him up for us all, will He not also with Him freely and graciously give us all [other] things? ~Romans 8:32 AMP
May 18, 2020
Always A Mystery
Just as you’ll never understand the mystery of life forming in a pregnant woman, So you’ll never understand the mystery at work in all that God does. - Ecclesiastes 11:5 MSG
May 15, 2020
Your Most Earnest Pursuit
Make it your most earnest pursuit to go deeper with God today. Lift your soul (your mind, will, and emotions)up to Him and listen for His direction. It’s into the “deeper things” we must learn to go. Let the story of your mercy come to me in the morning, for my hope is in you: give me knowledge of the way in which I am to go; for my soul is lifted up to you. —Psalm 143:8 BBE
May 14, 2020
You are not God’s employee — You are His Co-Laborer! I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, if anyone steadfastly believes in Me, he will himself be able to do the things that I do; and he will do even greater things than these, because I go to the Father. —John 14:12 AMP I do not call you servants (slaves) any longer, for the servant does not know what his master is doing (working out). But I have called you My friends, because I have made known to you everything that I have heard from My Father. [I have revealed to you everything that I have learned from Him.] You have not chosen Me, but I have chosen you and I have appointed you [I have planted you], that you might go and bear fruit and keep on bearing, and that your fruit may be lasting [that it may remain, abide], so that whatever you ask the Father in My Name [as presenting all that I AM], He may give it to you. —John 15:15 - 16 AMP
May 12, 2020
You Are Enough
I have had ENOUGH - means you've reached your tolerated level. That's ENOUGH - means you have reached an acceptable amount. But what really is Enough? ENOUGH - means adequate for the want or need; sufficient for the purpose or to satisfy desire: So why do we always throw in those doubt words..... Like: Coulda Shoulda Woulda Need to Hafta Outta Maybe Possibly Almost Why do we keep buying the lie that we are not worthy enough, smart enough, pretty enough, talented enough, loved enough, liked enough, old enough, young enough, have enough or do enough. Why can't ENOUGH just be ENOUGH No striving No wrestling No doubting No second guessing Just Simply Take God at His Word! You ARE adequate and sufficient for His purpose because He says you are. You Are Enough because He is ENOUGH —XXOO Michelle Bollom For His divine power has bestowed on us absolutely everything necessary for a dynamic spiritual life and godliness, through true and personal knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and excellence. For by these He has bestowed on us His precious and magnificent promises of inexpressible value, so that by them you may escape from the immoral freedom that is in the world because of disreputable desire, and become sharers of the divine nature. ~ 2. Peter 1:3-4 AMP
May 12, 2020
Every Step Of The Way
Let the peace of Christ keep you in tune with each other, in step with each other. None of this going off and doing your own thing. And cultivate thankfulness.

Let every detail in your lives—words, actions, whatever—be done in the name of the Master, Jesus, thanking God the Father every step of the way. Colossians 3:15-17 MSG

Never Let Anxiety Enter Your Hearts
We unpacked Luke 12:22-24 today in The Passion and the Dake Annotated KJV - We can Take No thought to things and never let the anxiety or worries enter our hearts. Jesus taught his disciples, saying, “Listen to me. Never let anxiety enter your hearts. Never worry about any of your needs, such as food or clothing. For your life is infinitely more than just food or the clothing you wear. Take the carefree birds as your example. Do you ever see them worry? They don’t grow their own food or put it in a storehouse for later. Yet God takes care of every one of them, feeding each of them from his love and goodness. Isn’t your life more precious to God than a bird? Be carefree in the care of God! Luke 12:22-24
