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…

the upward call – batter up

With our floors being resurfaced at home, we travelled to our favourite holiday place, down on the Victorian coast. We needed to be out of the house for a week, and a brief holiday was on the cards. On our arrival, we headed out for our inaugural wander on the beach. With plans to stop…

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…

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,…

Reaching into an empty barrel only to find more than enough

Sometimes we have nothing left in the tank. The sense of tiredness is real. Self care is essential, so as you read, balance the message with permission to rest. We reach into the empty barrel believing we have nothing to give; only to find an abundant flow. I was at kindy pick up for my…

He sees the one

A beautiful person house sat for us while we were away for the Easter break. She is dangerous to darkness because she will listen and respond. She shared the most lovely testimony after we came home, a testimony that continues to show that God is the God that sees and cares for the one. Easter…

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…

It’s the little things…

I felt the nudge to get out and go for a walk in the sunshine. There was 40 minutes before an online class started. I was a little flat, and did not feel inclined, but I recognised the nudge and so I knew to go. Heading out, I asked which way. In my ‘wisdom', I…
