There is Hope in the Valley

It is with great excitement I share with you another poem for November. It was many moons ago that I found myself filled with the Spirit of the Lord, reading through Ezekiel, compelled to write. I found myself, pen in hand, pouring out. A few moment later, this is what I read. If you’ve read […]

What’s my life calling? / What if I don’t have a testimony?

As promised, this months message is all about the two questions above. This is a topic that I am passionate about, but also one that I’ve grown into in the last few years. If you’re anything like me, you’ve wondered these things because you’ve over-complicated what it means to be a follower of Christ. It […]

Psalm 27

Already October? The Spring time is well and truly here, and although we have waited expectantly for it all year, it is easy to watch it fly by as life gets busy. The month for me has been a crazy one, but I was reflecting this morning on what it looks like to just be […]

The Wilderness Effect.

Finally, September. Praying and reflecting recently on what the last few years have looked like, re-reading through these posts and my own journals, have led me to a wonderful appreciation of the wilderness. But along with the appreciation, comes the memories of the hardships, fears and failures that went along with it. It got me […]

Preparing for Spring

It’s finally starting to warm up down here at the bottom of the globe (though even as I write this, sitting outside in the sunshine on the warm grass, tomorrow will be raining, cold and there won’t be any sunshine). Regardless, the warm weather brings hope that spring time is finally coming, and the song […]

Lessons on a Snowboard

Faith in Action – a Reflection

Back in November, I wrote a piece that looked a little different from what I normally write and I reflected on scripture that was speaking to me and encouraging me at the time. June 2018 looks a lot similar. Uninspired by what to write, the Lord graciously reminded me this morning of Hebrew 11 and […]

Treasure in Heaven

It’s the last few weeks of the Australian autumn now! Is anyone else thinking, “Where has this year gone?” Honestly I think this every year, more and more now the older I get. Perhaps it has something to do with not always living in the moment as I did when I was younger and free […]

A Road Map In the Dark

To be honest, I wasn’t sure how I wanted to start this one. Usually I draw inspiration from my life when I decide what I am going to write. A Road Map in the Dark has been something that has been inspired by what I am reading in the Bible right now (the Torah, or, […]

After a Year of Writing

Well here we are, 12 months into what I believed was just the right “next step”. It feels so long ago when I felt the stirring of the Father to start to share and to write regularly. Yet, at the same time, and as clichΓ© as this sounds, it feels like only yesterday I was […]
