And she felt the warmth of His love …

My daughter is changing schools.  With this change comes all the details of such a change … notifying authorities; purchasing gifts; writing letters of affirmation for teachers and support staff; and doing all the bits and pieces that honouring a group of people who have sown into a child’s life for 3 years takes ……

Fear that guards the place of break through…“he who believes in Me, the same works that I do, he will do also” John 14:12 (NASB) – pushing through to the promise…

I was up at the local shopping centre on Tuesday 21st August 2011, looking for some red ballet shoes for my daughter, who had decided that she would be the Magic Ballerina from Darcey Bussell’s books series for the International Book Day at her school. 4 year-old M had not eaten his breakfast so we…

The Gloria Jeans anointing – Wednesday 24th August 2011

I think that God likes coffee … well ... He likes the people who are at coffee shops anyway … Last week I was heading off interstate again and had a spare hour at the airport and so I decided to pop into Gloria Jeans and grab a caffeine hit. As I waited, I got…

“…And the peace of God…will guard [her] heart and mind in Christ Jesus” (Phil 4:7) – praying for life 13th July 2011

I was flying interstate and had settled into my seat next to someone that was happily absorbed with his i-phone.  I was looking forward to a quiet time with God on the plane.  It was a short flight.  I had stopped and prayed for someone at the airport, and did not sense that the guy…

Ice cream and prayer at the pool – God is Good

We were up at the local swim school with our 4-year-old son this morning (Saturday 13th August 2011).  I was at the reception desk arranging a “make up” class for him when the girl (for what reason I do not know) looked at me and said she felt sick because she had just eaten an…

Greek Grandfather is healed and captures the heart of God … Praise report from K

On Thursday 28th July I received this praise report from a friend “K”.  Many of her stories are posted on this blog, and I know more will come because she has chosen to take God at His word and believe what He says in the Bible about what and who we are in him.  This…

From our lips to God’s ear … calming the storm at Mt Kosciusko, Australia’s snowy mountains

My husband loves to ski, but has not been skiing for many years. His sister was heading up to Kosciusko for a week and I suggested he go with them … after thinking about it … for about 3 seconds (no he did take longer than that), he decided to go for it, and in…

Stepping out with the Kingdom of Heaven at the basketball (K’s story of a Good God)

A friend of mine has been stepping out and offering the Kingdom of Heaven as she goes … where ever she is … be it work, her son's basketball, where ever.  I love her testimonies (see link for some others).  She sent me more testimonies last week and they continue to inspire me to keep…

A “random act of kindness” … you’ll never know the impact – buying coffee at Gloria Jeans

I mentioned in an earlier story that I had bought coffee for someone while out at the local shopping centre (see story about healing for Sammi – link here). On this particular day, on my way to the store where Sammi worked, I had stopped to buy myself a coffee and a muffin for 4-year-old…

He was dying … but then he lived … because God is Good! August 2010

So many of us attend functions, schools, seminars … on healing, miracles, signs, wonders, God’s power, His will for our lives … We get excited, even convinced that we will use all that God has for us, but then we freeze, fear grips, or we are tired, want a rest, or just do not want…
