Coffee with Christ

Yesterday afternoon I felt a little flat, so I took Poppy (our dog) out for a walk. It is lockdown number 5 in Melbourne, and as of Wednesday we clocked over 6 months in hard lockdown in under a year. That does not include the country wide lockdown that our nation lived through last March/April.…

The test of Faith

Currently, I am writing up teaching plans to train in the prophetic. As I do, God reminds me of stories that highlight the varied ways He speaks to us. I write them up as best I can. Some are quirky, others show I simply did not know He was speaking, while others cause me to…

Son-shine at the hairdressers Part 2

Good news warms the heart, so why do we so willingly repeat bad news? There was a book, or rather a series of books, that I read over twenty years ago called “Chicken Soup for the Soul”. They were lovely books, celebrating the goodness of God, the goodness of people. I believe it is now…

Son-shine at the hairdressers Part 1

God loves hairdressers. He turns up in their salons regularly. I was at my local hairdresser’s several years ago. I was getting “sunshine” for summer. *Belle was my go to girl for nearly 8 years at this stage. She knew my story, and she had heard the story of many others who had overcome known…

What are you waiting for?

In the early stages of my more ‘radical’ walk with God, my children were young, and so my world revolved around school pick ups, ballet schools, children's activities, etc. I was also working as a lawyer, but my primary focus was ‘on the streets, in daily life.’ In this, I have found ‘they’ are waiting…

He loves me; He loves me not?

Will God still love me if I do not obey Him? If I know He wants me to do something, and I don’t do it, will He accept me? If you’re a ‘good’ Christian, you will know the answer to this one. But, do you really know? Knowing we should do something in a moment,…

How to grow deep in transition

Transition is an unusual and challenging time. In child birth, “transition” is a time of intense focus. Past comforts long gone; there is simply ‘here and now’ with (hopefully) the encouragement of others to carry you through. The old has passed away. The new is yet to come, with all its… all its… well, all…

Fire burns all the time…

In soaking group this week I recalled a truth and a ‘coincidence’ that at the time kissed my tired heart alive. It still leaves me in awe of a good God. In 2008, I attended revival meetings in the USA. It was a big deal leaving my family. Master M was 15 months, and Mistress…

Our story is HIS-story

As I write my God is Good stories, I am reminded of how He scatters His love throughout our lives and the communities in which we live. I encourage you to write about your adventures with God. Even the so called ‘insignificant moments’ matter. Through the years of my own testimonies, I see scattered gold…

Reaching into an empty barrel only to find more than enough

Sometimes we have nothing left in the tank. The sense of tiredness is real. Self care is essential, so as you read, balance the message with permission to rest. We reach into the empty barrel believing we have nothing to give; only to find an abundant flow. I was at kindy pick up for my…
