Australis Awaken; Australis Arise

I hear the sound of water in Nation, deep in the belly of Land. I see the sound of a faucet valve turning - clockwise* to future we come. Nation groans, waters break, give birth to Ancient of Ways. The call of First Nations people release; as we stand together as One. Command:  Aurora Australis…

Worship is a warship-it’s time to praise

2020 was a year of pause, shift, change growth as the storms raged on. Worship was significant and essential. I knew without a doubt that united worship was critical. Technology did not stop us from uniting and worshipping ‘in spirit and in truth’ just as Jesus called for when speaking with the woman at the…

Time stands still no more

Resets, restarts, reshaping, renewing, recharging, restoring - so many re’s being re-leased (see Ready or Not Here He Comes). The Body cries, ‘Lord, re-store what was, return to the recent known (comfortable) ways.’ Is that where we head? In February, I flew to Sydney to worship at AWE, a night of worship hosted by Jubilee…

His net works…

Earlier this year, I bought a scarf for a leader/friend. She is an Australian Apostle/Prophet and I honour her and receive her as such. I believe she and her team are creating reformation, accelerating into Kingdom renaissance. The scarf had a chain-like pattern. I originally chose one for myself, then felt the familiar nudge to…

Hearing His heart through the gift of a cake

Can God speak through cake? I think He can... A couple of lockdowns ago (we are now at #6), I was up at my local store and saw that there were quite a few mandarin tea cakes available for sale. They often sell fast, so seeing this many was a surprise. They're certainly a favourite…

Towards Fresh Wine

Some need renovation; others deconstruction. Some are renovating; while  many are consumed with the build. Yet others, the quiet ones with no meeting place of sorts, know it is time to meet at Water’s edge for it is there that ancient pathways head towards Fresh Wine.    

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…

Can you see the one before you?

This morning I was a little flat. We are still in stage 4 lockdown in Melbourne, Australia, and although there was some lifting of restrictions last night, the changes do not really change anything for us in our little bubble. Restless, I pulled on my big girl pants and drove to the naturopath to pick…

What you carry you spread – the honey will flow because God is Good!

I returned from a daily walk last week and noted how beautiful my blossom trees looked. I stopped to take some photos: These trees make my heart sing. It is the simple things that bring me great delight. Yes... that is a cabbage in my front garden - beauty, form and function. I have a…

Sweetness and destiny at Splash Mountain

I was dripping as I stood in line waiting to purchase our Splash Mountain family action photo ...  I had been nominated front seat person in the wet but fun ride at Disneyland ...  and I looked like a drowned rat! As I waited for the photo I "heard" the word "sweetness" and I knew it…
