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…

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…

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…

take the next step…

So often in our lives, futures imagined, dreams envisioned, must be laid down. In these moments we have a choice: do we allow God to direct our steps, even though we are at sea with disappointment and hurt? Or do we attempt to control it all, forcing our lives in the direction we think we should…

And there was rain – God is Good!

This is a friend's testimony. It demonstrates how obedience, prayer and daring to believe can cause breakthrough for communities and areas of land. I hope this testimony is an encouragement in this time for all of us to continue to pray for breakthrough - for the rains of the Holy Spirit to come and demolish…

“Step up” … “just do the next thing you know to do” because God is Good!

In recent years I have felt a call from God to return to a something I once did in 1996-1998.  To be honest I have judiciously avoided ever getting involved again, purely because it's a tough industry for anyone that cares. I have a background in law.  As a young lawyer, I was transferred to…

Treasure at the Tip – God is Good!

One of our more retiring, gentle members of our group, called P, has been moved more and more by Holy Spirit to step out and pray for those around him as he goes.  He was the person who stopped and gave all he had in his wallet to a busker in this earlier story here and…
