The Danger of NOT Letting go of your Past

Rather, as it is written: "No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no heart has imagined, what God has prepared for those who love Him."

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 →

What I learnt from my Friend’s Passing – I give myself Permission to Live!

I give myself permission to serve in joy

A close friend of mine and dear sister in faith passed away over the weekend and as usual, when something like this happens it prompts you to reflect on life. I would like to share some of my thoughts with you. My friend Lorraine was/is amazing. She had a larger than life personality and an even bigger heart, her door was always open for fellowship and she was a mother to many people. She was a fantastic intercessor and worshipper. Each year without fail she would travel to Israel for ministry work or celebrate a feast day, last year she went Continue Reading →

How to let go of Fear, Pain and Worry

let go of Fear Pain and Worry

Do you believe it’s possible to reach a place where there is no more fear, pain or worry, only stillness, quietness and a deep peace? As I write this question even I wonder at its strangeness, but I have experienced this place at least three times. Before I go any further, I know this post is a long one and possibly challenging but I encourage you to read to the end because I believe that it will bless you. The first time I was in my final year of university, in a place of deep depression and intense emotional pain. Continue Reading →

My Journey: Thoughts on Growing into Me

My journey

***Every once in a while I want to let you into my own growth and healing journey, I can’t promise it will be regular but I hope that it will be honest enough to encourage you.*** I’m feeling sentimental today.  I’m looking back over my past websites here and here and each of them represent a part of me, a period of my life, footsteps on my healing journey.  Although many times we may feel that it would be nice to reminisce and go back, the truth is that we can never go back, going back is never the same Continue Reading →

Two Scriptures that helped me embrace Faith in my Heart

Faith and Love

This week’s theme is Faith.  I have personally had quite a difficult relationship with Faith but I wasn’t aware of it until it became a Word that people used against me. When I fell ill and began to seek support from people in the church, the F word began to pop up a LOT.  I was told that I didn’t have enough faith and that I needed to have more faith. To say these words annoyed me would be a bit of an understatement, they really peeved me off.  However (emphasise x 3), it got me thinking more about faith, the nature of Continue Reading →

Is God calling you to Walk across the Waters in 2016?

Live the journey

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 →

Learning to embrace Stillness

In a world that moves quickly, we need the grace of God to practice stillness

(Sharing this post I wrote a few weeks ago whilst I was going through some horrible feelings of anxiety – it’s still a blessing to me as I read it and I hope it will be a blessing to you too xxx) Restlessness. You may have experienced it before, that feeling where no matter how hard you might want to or you might try to you just can’t seem to be still.  It could be because you feel that something is about to happen or something needs to happen, maybe it’s a mixture of both but you can’t seem to shake that Continue Reading →

My Call from God by Tracey Casciano

Psalm 37-5-6 (NLT) Tracey Casciano Out of the Darkroom into the Light

I’m so happy to share this guest post with you, from author Tracey Casciano.  We all struggle with forgiveness that’s why I think that this week’s post is something we can all relate.  A true story of light out of darkness.   One spring day I was sitting in church and the pastor started speaking about forgiveness. This immediately made me uncomfortable. You see, I had been estranged from my parents for over 16 years. I didn’t like our relationship, but no idea what to do. As the pastor began speaking, I felt as though a spotlight was on me. Nothing Continue Reading →

5 Keys to greater Contentment

5 Keys to Contentment

This post is actually a recycle and re-use of a training call I did on 5 Keys to creating a Life you Love living.  I had so much positive feedback from the training plus I feel that the message fell so heavily upon me that I know that it’s worth sharing some of the points here for those of you who might need this message.  So here goes. 5 Keys to Unlocking greater Contentment But godliness with contentment is great gain.  1 Timothy 6: 6
