A reminder that we are all called to arms … obedience in stopping for the one

I was walking home from kindy with 4-year-old M.  As we waited at the railway tracks for a train to pass I saw an elderly couple waiting on the other side of the track – the husband had his arm in a huge bandage … and I knew I was to offer to pray, but…

And he played footy that Saturday – healing of M’s knee Winter 2009

This is an older story - an early one in my journey of "stopping for the one".  It was the start of a journey that this man went on over the next year or two, where he started to question his atheistic belief system, and wonder whether he could also be loved by God.  It was…

It was a set up of the most magnificent kind – the lame shall walk…and a daughter is loved because, God is Good!

Last Sunday 11th September 2011 our daughter was at a pool party at a local pool complex and my husband and I decided to take 4-year-old M for a swim while we waited for the party to finish.  I had a sense to go, although the thought of a quiet couple of hours at home…

A pain in the shoulder is in fact a “word of knowledge” and a healing is released …

4-year-old M and I were up at the shopping centre on Tuesday 6th September 2011 to collect a pair of socks left behind on a school shoe shopping excursion.  author’s note: no … I do not live there, but often God wants me to stop for the one there and hence the many shopping stories!…

And she felt the warmth of His love …

My daughter is changing schools.  With this change comes all the details of such a change … notifying authorities; purchasing gifts; writing letters of affirmation for teachers and support staff; and doing all the bits and pieces that honouring a group of people who have sown into a child’s life for 3 years takes ……

Fear that guards the place of break through…“he who believes in Me, the same works that I do, he will do also” John 14:12 (NASB) – pushing through to the promise…

I was up at the local shopping centre on Tuesday 21st August 2011, looking for some red ballet shoes for my daughter, who had decided that she would be the Magic Ballerina from Darcey Bussell’s books series for the International Book Day at her school. 4 year-old M had not eaten his breakfast so we…

The Gloria Jeans anointing – Wednesday 24th August 2011

I think that God likes coffee … well ... He likes the people who are at coffee shops anyway … Last week I was heading off interstate again and had a spare hour at the airport and so I decided to pop into Gloria Jeans and grab a caffeine hit. As I waited, I got…

“…And the peace of God…will guard [her] heart and mind in Christ Jesus” (Phil 4:7) – praying for life 13th July 2011

I was flying interstate and had settled into my seat next to someone that was happily absorbed with his i-phone.  I was looking forward to a quiet time with God on the plane.  It was a short flight.  I had stopped and prayed for someone at the airport, and did not sense that the guy…

toothache, heartache … God cares about it all

4 year old M and I popped into the local hairdresser to buy some shampoo.  I had kept forgetting but I felt that God had reminded me while out this morning and, strangely, while there I felt to ask, on the off chance, whether there was anyone available to cut M’s hair.  Usually they would…

It’s time to move out!

I have suggested through out many blogs that the language of coincidence is one of the ways God speaks to us … as I step up and out I am becoming more and more convinced of this … I was at the shopping centre Thursday 5th May 2011 buying my youngest some shoes at Myers.…
