I’ve had wake-up calls before. For instance, falling ill changed my life but it took time and I went down really, really low before I could even begin to see any light at the end of the tunnel. Yet, as much as I have grown and changed over the years I still struggle with resistance. I hear people say that you need to have a BIG WHY in order to overcome your resistance, I get that. But let’s take a moment to think about what resistance really is. Resistance is defined as the impeding or stopping effect exerted by one material thing Continue Reading →
Who doesn’t like to receive a gift? Not you right? Well, how sure are you about that? Because I’ve noticed that it’s often the very things that we want the most that we have a nasty habit of running away screaming from. So you want to see a change in X and you’ve been praying for it, but how about those nasty self-sabotaging behaviours that you have been acting out to subconsciously push it away? Uh-huh, you didn’t think about those, did you? Yes, it’s true, we can often be our very worst enemies when it comes to receiving the Continue Reading →
Last week I had a BIG wake-up call (don’t you just love it when God does that?) and I was faced with news that would finally sever ties to the past. Even though in my mind I thought that I had left the past behind obviously I hadn’t fully let it go. God brought a visiting pastor to our church, and he preached on this topic, which convicted me so much, so I’m passing what I took from it onto you because maybe you too need to hear this. So many times we think we have left the past behind Continue Reading →
How can we be the light in a dark world, how can we make an eternal impact and transform lives? Over the last few weeks, I have been talking about the importance of re-discovering your voice over in my FB Group. Simply put, our voice is the truth of who we are. Unfortunately, there are some things which stop us from re-discovering and embracing our voice namely: Shame and Fear. Shame leads us to believe that our voice is wrong, faulty or not good enough to be loved and accepted by others. Fear focuses on the potential consequences or “what ifs” Continue Reading →
So today I want to share something (two things actually) quite close to my heart. The first is the replay of last night’s training call which was a big deal for me for very personal reasons but also I have a confession to make. This confession is actually the catalyst for last night’s training call, because without what I learnt during this season I wouldn’t have been able to share at all. What is it?
Welcome to 2016! We are now 10 days in, how has it been for you so far? If I look back over the last 8 or so years of my life, I can see YHWH orchestrating my life – yes even, with the illness. But do you know what? I see His hand most clearly when I reflect upon the New Year words He gives to me. He has been shaping my path, directing my footsteps with words such as… Commitment No Fear Breakthrough I had a song by Hillsong constantly on replay at the end of 2015 “Oceans”. I Continue Reading →
This post is the first in the 4 week Forgiveness Challenge #4weeksforgiveness I’m running both here and in my Facebook group. Each week I’ll share a lesson on Biblical forgiveness whilst challenging ourselves to apply it during the week. It would be great if you could join us, I’ll share the post here on a Monday but the heavy lifting and support will take place over in the group. You in? A few years back I was in a very difficult situation with family members and although God was calling me to forgive them I had no idea how to go Continue Reading →
