So often we operate from a place of untruth.  We make decisions based on a belief about ourselves or our circumstances that is not from God.  We tell ourselves that there is nothing good in our lives. We lean into the negativity that the world has surrounded us with and we feel failure and depression and heartache.  But this is not the life God has called us to!

Jeremiah 29:11  (NKJV)

11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.

When you find yourself believing the enemy’s lies about you or your situation, turn instead to God’s Word.  HE has a plan for you and your life and it includes peace and hope! Although we may have to go through hard times and difficult situations, ultimately God’s perfect plan will be accomplished.  

Bellafina Chocolates was born from a situation where owner Brenda Barnicki could have felt rejection, chaos, and disorder.  She was in the middle of a successful career with a local Fortune 500 company when her position was terminated due to downsizing.  Armed with the truth that God had a future and hope for her, she launched head long into growing her gourmet truffle business. And the name Bellafina in Italian means beautiful and fine!  These two words that describe the delicious chocolate creations you can find in the store can also define the way God feels about each and every one of his children.

Never forget that you are beautiful and you are fine!  God loves you and directs you in each and every failure and success.  Let him fill you with peace and hope.
