Treasures in Darkness… Christmas Shopping with Jesus

We had a few hours on a Saturday for child free Christmas shopping before seeing a movie. With our list in hand, little did we know that Jesus had a Christmas list of His own… I was in the ‘ladies’ when I found the first on His list. I knew to pray for someone outside…

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…

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…

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…

Special education her passion; Heaven her destination, God is Good!

With a new school term upon us, my daughter and I made a dash to our local shopping centre to ensure shoes would fit properly for the coming days. As we ducked through the department store, a jumper (sweater) caught my eye. In a flash, I felt to buy it. On checking size and colour,…

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…

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…

It’s the little things…

I felt the nudge to get out and go for a walk in the sunshine. There was 40 minutes before an online class started. I was a little flat, and did not feel inclined, but I recognised the nudge and so I knew to go. Heading out, I asked which way. In my ‘wisdom', I…
