Treasures in Darkness… Christmas Shopping with Jesus

We had a few hours on a Saturday for child free Christmas shopping before seeing a movie. With our list in hand, little did we know that Jesus had a Christmas list of His own… I was in the ‘ladies’ when I found the first on His list. I knew to pray for someone outside…

what we carry together becomes lighter for us all

‘Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfil the law of Christ.’ Gal 6:2 What is the law of Christ? The law of Christ is the Law of Love. It’s found in Matthew 22:37-40 where Jesus says: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and…

Provision for the Vision

A vision of prophetic community stirred in me in 2019. I had asked a friend for a referral to anyone she might know in my area that was a mature prophetic voice. She asked a leader for me at my old church, who (not knowing she was asking for me) referred her back to me.…

Hearing His heart through the gift of a cake

Can God speak through cake? I think He can... A couple of lockdowns ago (we are now at #6), I was up at my local store and saw that there were quite a few mandarin tea cakes available for sale. They often sell fast, so seeing this many was a surprise. They're certainly a favourite…

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…

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,…

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…
