He discovered he was loved (part 2)

The impact of a prophetic word can be far-reaching and life changing. Sometimes we have no idea the impact of us stopping for the one and releasing a prophetic encouragement has; but, if we are fortunate God will show us. This is part 2 of a 2 part story. Part one can be read here…

He discovered he was loved (part 1)

The impact of a prophetic word can be far-reaching and life changing. In the early days of learning how to prophesy, I attended Bible College. I was keen, and had been stopping for people as I went through life, but the clarity and confidence brought about by training encouraged me to practise and step out…

Crossing my chicken line – the lame DID walk (a God is Good praise report Part 2)… and she felt light

Easter Saturday, God set me up to ‘cross my chicken line.’ He gave me an assignment to pray for an elderly woman in a wheelchair. After the prayer for her injured knee, she had gleefully got up and walked off into the shops, leaving her daughter-in-law and me standing beside her empty wheelchair. This was marvellous,…

Crossing my chicken line – the lame DID walk (a God is Good praise report Part 1)

My last post mentioned how wheelchairs of all shapes and sizes are my ‘chicken line.’ One Easter Saturday, I found myself in a shopping centre about half an hour away from home, collecting a new pair of shoes for my 8-year-old daughter… Walking into the centre, I had the uncanny sense that there would be…

crossing my chicken line – the lame shall walk because God is Good!

In my last post, I mentioned that as we had headed off on a walk, my husband, Andrew, had just stepped out and crossed his ‘chicken line.’ I was in a season of many encounters, many promptings to stop for the one on my way. He, in comparison, found stopping for strangers more challenging. As…

when you hear the heartbeat of Love, speak

As we ushered in the 20s, the prophets declared it the year and the decade of the mouth. The year and the decade of the voice.* Nothing has changed. It remains the decade of the voice. Indeed, it is the decade of the maturation of the voice. There is a choice available. WE get to…

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…

testimonies shift realities… time to create

Could it be, as we share our testimonies of Jesus, our stories of a Good God, that creative power releases to heal and affect change all around us for the better? To prophesy is to declare God’s intentions, His goodness. Paul writes in 1 Corinthians 14:3: ‘But everyone who prophesies speaks to men for their…
