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 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 DID walk (a God is Good praise report Part 1)

My last post mentioned how wheelchairs of all shapes and sizes are my ‘chicken line.’ One Easter Saturday, I found myself in a shopping centre about half an hour away from home, collecting a new pair of shoes for my 8-year-old daughter… Walking into the centre, I had the uncanny sense that there would be…

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…

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…

Time to hope again – prophetic encouragement

It is time to hope again. There is an urgency to hope again. I hear the Father say, ‘There is no more grace to remain focused on disappointment. It is time to hope again.’Our destinies, our destinations, depend on hope revived, for if we continue to focus on what has not been, we will create…
