Pulling back; stepping through… God is Good!

Collecting my 5-year-old son from kindy, I felt to pop up to the local shopping centre for a coffee and a donut. A regular ‘treat’ for the two of us. I had thought we were heading straight home. I was feeling tired, but sensing the prompting of God to go to the shops, I asked…

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…

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…

Prayer releases Heaven’s bulls eye … God is Good!

The purpose of these posts is to declare and remember that God is Good! This is something that I have resolved in my heart - that no matter what ... God is Good! In the storm - He is there. In the calm - He is there. And - He is Good! God is ALWAYS…

The sweet sweet presence of God – God is Good!

Last week my husband and I went for a walk up to our local supermarket. It had been very hot and we were treating our children, who were at home watching a movie, to some ice cream. As we checked out our few items at self-service, I noticed that the young girl overseeing the area…

Baptism and Breakthrough – God is Good!

You may recall a story I wrote up  story about a friend of mine receiving peace after seeking prayer when she was advised that her husband, whom had been imprisoned for a serious crime against her, had been let out of jail early.  See link here for story. Well I felt it high time to update the…
