Crossing my chicken line, the lame DID walk (a God is Good praise report part 3) – calling forth the promises of God

My last few posts talk about my ‘chicken line.*’ In choosing to cross that line (praying for people in wheelchairs) a woman walks away from her wheel chair pain-free**; and a mother struggling with despair, fills with hope and light.*** She then asks for prayer and blessing of her son. Read on to see what…

Crossing my chicken line – the lame DID walk (a God is Good praise report Part 2)… and she felt light

Easter Saturday, God set me up to ‘cross my chicken line.’ He gave me an assignment to pray for an elderly woman in a wheelchair. After the prayer for her injured knee, she had gleefully got up and walked off into the shops, leaving her daughter-in-law and me standing beside her empty wheelchair. This was marvellous,…

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…

healing on holiday – asthma healed praise report

While on holiday, I wanted to say ‘hello’ to a woman I had met the year before. She helped my eight-year-old daughter choose a trinket, and she spent many long moments helping her ponder the purchase. She was gracious, and so patient you could have thought she was assisting with a purchase of great value.…

Beauty for lashes – encountering the Trio of Love

We can make our plans, but the Lord determines our steps. (Proverbs 16:9) With a busy day planned, it surprised me to feel a prompt to book in an eyelash tint. It was illogical. I had no time in my day, an appointment to fit would be highly unlikely, and I have an eyelash tint…

Son-shine at the hairdressers Part 1

God loves hairdressers. He turns up in their salons regularly. I was at my local hairdresser’s several years ago. I was getting “sunshine” for summer. *Belle was my go to girl for nearly 8 years at this stage. She knew my story, and she had heard the story of many others who had overcome known…

What are you waiting for?

In the early stages of my more ‘radical’ walk with God, my children were young, and so my world revolved around school pick ups, ballet schools, children's activities, etc. I was also working as a lawyer, but my primary focus was ‘on the streets, in daily life.’ In this, I have found ‘they’ are waiting…

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…
