My name is Nicole…Nicole M. About 10 years ago I traded my youth for an eternal romance. For an exciting adventure. For my best friend Jesus. Since then I’ve learned this relationship was not going to be as smooth sailing as it first appeared. I had no idea that what I was actually choosing to do was live a surrendered life and that that surrendered life would mean a lot of “dying to self”. It would also mean getting to know Him in a way I never would have, had I not made those decisions to sacrifice those things so near and dear to my heart. Well the sacrificing isn’t over! And 10 years is a drop in the bucket to Jesus, but every day we give is precious to Him. One thing that has kept me in this journey is His love. It is truly better than wine. The purpose of this blog is to record this life journey God had planned before I was in my mother’s womb. It’s my hope that you will read and be encouraged by the fact that you are not alone. If you are His child, and going through similar experiences, know that His love will carry you through the waves of life. In the words of John Mark McMillan “If grace is an ocean we are all sinking”.
