Choose Hope

Holding Hope ©Rampal Singh on Unsplash Choose Hope.   Requiring courage, hope demands forward movement. Insists on release of past things, hurts, 'reasons', excuses...   Hope demands an exchange of the old; a step forward to the new... into something not known or even yet felt.   Hope confronts, shakes mountains, rattles cages and releases…

Prophetic dream – open the door & enter in

I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture. John 10:9 I’ve had a couple of dreams of late. Who hasn’t? One recent one, which brings comfort, especially as I repeatedly take it to God to seek clarification of its meaning, as…

And he would love again because God is Good!

Salt preserves – being community in the world … God is Good!

Yesterday I posted about the time I had to stop and breathe. During this time God came and nurtured me, and gave me a list of dot points to "do" (note: it is a high priority to "be" every day, before I "do"). One of my dot points was literally: "JMAB - skype lessons." JMAB…
