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…

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,…

Fire burns all the time…

In soaking group this week I recalled a truth and a ‘coincidence’ that at the time kissed my tired heart alive. It still leaves me in awe of a good God. In 2008, I attended revival meetings in the USA. It was a big deal leaving my family. Master M was 15 months, and Mistress…

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…

Pulling back; stepping through… God is Good!

Collecting my 5-year-old son from kindy, I felt to pop up to the local shopping centre for a coffee and a donut. A regular ‘treat’ for the two of us. I had thought we were heading straight home. I was feeling tired, but sensing the prompting of God to go to the shops, I asked…

He sees the one

A beautiful person house sat for us while we were away for the Easter break. She is dangerous to darkness because she will listen and respond. She shared the most lovely testimony after we came home, a testimony that continues to show that God is the God that sees and cares for the one. Easter…

Gratitude is the attitude for 2021 – free resource in Unlocking the Gold

We recently watched the movie Soul. I highly recommend it. Soul is a poignant reminder that our life’s spark is not purpose. Life is not about what we do, for we are not human doings. Rather, life’s spark is about the sheer joy of living, those magic moments when life sings. I’ve been thinking a…

Stop for the one regardless of lockdown

Late last year, I bumped into a friend I had not seen for years. We briefly chatted, and then she surprised me by suggesting we catch up. She said she loved spending time with me years ago, and would love to catch up for lunch. I was delighted, but a little surprised. Trust me… I…

Atheist Professor teaches his 7y.o. meaning of life – my story of meeting a good God

Well I've never really told my story on this blog.  In fact, in typical Aussie style I have kept myself out of this blog on purpose, essentially because: Australians hate "big noting Aussies".  Yes people the tall poppy syndrome does exist here.  I never wanted to be accused of "big noting" or making this blog…
