The God who sees (part 2)

© Sam Manns God gave me kisses on Thursday. I had been flat, I needed encouragement. He is the God who sees... The next day, I saw a great friend. You know the type: encouraging, positive, loves your quirkiness and knows you well enough to brush the dirt away gently to reveal the gold while…

The God who sees (Part 1)

©Guilherme StecanellaIf anyone has read my stories, they know I believe in stopping for the one. The masses are exciting and they matter. The big impact is glorious. Yet there is something so very special about the one. Never forget, He is the Father that encourages with the story of the one lost sheep. Sometimes…

Treasures in Darkness… Christmas Shopping with Jesus

We had a few hours on a Saturday to do child free Christmas shopping before going to a movie. With our list in hand, we did not know that Jesus had His own Christmas shopping list for us to do too…! I was in the ‘ladies’ when I found the first on His list. God…

My beloved daughter; My beloved son

Who are we? Questions of identity stir. The depth of that quest for self is confronting, and so we keep busy, we keep moving... The world says ‘Go, go, go!’ So we run. We run until the light of the day goes, and when it has we flick the switch for more light and we…

Stop for the one regardless of lockdown

Late last year, I bumped into a friend I had not seen for years. We briefly chatted, and then she surprised me by suggesting we catch up. She said she loved spending time with me years ago, and would love to catch up for lunch. I was delighted, but a little surprised. Trust me… I…

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!

I wrote this testimony up a few years ago, but I never published it.  I feel it's time to publish it now, so that it may serve as encouragement to those who are journeying something similar, to those that need to know that they are worthy of love, and of loving again, and for those…

Hey, you…God is Good!

Anyone that knows me personally knows that my family and I, have been going through a massive transition.  Mostly wonderful, lots of stretching, some challenging … some shaking … but all for good! In transition it can be difficult (more so for some than others) to not feel completely overwhelmed, especially when the change is…

The Fragrance of Heaven … God is Good!

I was driving back from dropping my son at school.  I often take the route past my daughter’s school, and as I do I pray for the school, the teachers, those in authority, the children, the school community at large … I did so this morning, sensing to drive past and pray, to bless the…

Sleeping in the storm … God is Good!

Last Thursday I was free for the first time this year to walk up to my daughter's school to collect her ... 6-year-old M had a play date straight after school and there were no after school activities to rush to ... This particular day had been a typical Melbourne Spring day ... sunshine in…
