He discovered he was loved (part 2)

The impact of a prophetic word can be far-reaching and life changing. Sometimes we have no idea the impact of us stopping for the one and releasing a prophetic encouragement has; but, if we are fortunate God will show us. This is part 2 of a 2 part story. Part one can be read here…

He discovered he was loved (part 1)

The impact of a prophetic word can be far-reaching and life changing. In the early days of learning how to prophesy, I attended Bible College. I was keen, and had been stopping for people as I went through life, but the clarity and confidence brought about by training encouraged me to practise and step out…

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…

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”(Jeremiah 29:11) Most would suggest that the extended lockdowns in Melbourne were harsh, hard, and heavy. I agree they were tough. There were moments of profound encounter,…
