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 […]

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

Many things flood to mind when you’re lying face down on a table while the masseuse runs her elbow down the length of your spine, trying to kneed out the knots that have found their way into your muscles. Mostly what I am thinking of is how much these hurt, mixed with a weird bliss […]

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, […]

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 […]

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 […]

Have a little Faith

Happy New Year! I know, it’s already at the end of the first month, (I cannot believe January has gone!) But all the same, here are some thoughts on Faith for the New Year. I’ve been reflecting lately about what Jesus says about having trouble in this world (see, John 16). He never promises us […]

A Time For Everything – a Reflection

November looks a little different for this blog. Mostly because the month has disappeared away from me and also because I have been on nightshift for the entirety of it. It’s not that I don’t have anything meaningful to say, only that I have been reflecting on this year, and what it’s looked like, and […]

Rest and Refresh

Very often my life is so busy, my emotions constantly stimulated by what I am seeing and who I am becoming, I feel so unmotivated to write. And then other times, like a sudden strike of lightening, new thoughts and ideas begin to build like the coming together of a summer storm. A sudden urge […]

Write your own story

Travelling, like writing, has become another method of ‘release’ for me, especially lately. I have found that the best parts of me show when I am being challenged, driven and connected to places or people that have gone before me. Finding moments or activities in this world that bring us to life, is becoming more […]
