Your Heart knows the Way

your heart knows the way

 Dearest one,   I want you to know that your heart DOES know the way and the answer.   So many times the Bible speaks of the contrast between a hard and softened heart. A hard heart is closed off, wary and fearful, a soft heart is open, embracing, willing to learn and expansive.   The Bible also says that the heart is deceitful, who can fathom it – but if you look closer at the Hebrew, the Bible isn’t saying that the heart is wicked or evil but more that it is crooked or that it is skewed and Continue Reading →

What pursuing “Mr Right” taught me about Success and Failure

What pursuing "Mr Right" taught me about Success and Failure

Not only is this week the week of love but hey, it’s Valentine’s day and it’s got me thinking about important lessons from relationships especially what I’ve learnt in the pursuit of “Mr Right”. As they say, the way you do one thing is the way you do everything, so that means you can learn about success and failure in other areas of your life from the way you do relationships. So in this post, I’m sharing some of my learnings with you. You may not know this but I met my ex-partner when I was 18 years old and Continue Reading →

How to Be the Light in a Dark World

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 →

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 →

How Much Faith Do You Need to Meet Your Future Husband? {Guest Post}

How Much Faith Do You Need to Meet Your Future Husband?

I’m so pleased to feature our first guest blogger Selina Almodovar, you can read all about her and the great work that she does smoothing the course of love just below her post. During my mid-20’s I was living single.  This was not by choice. I was recently dumped by the man I thought would become my husband, and I was taking it pretty hard.  While things were supposed to be going great at that point of my life, I had reached an all-time low. I thought that if I did all the right things, then life would go according Continue Reading →

Forgiveness needs Boundaries and Love (Week 3 of 4 Week Forgiveness Challenge)

4 weeks of forgiveness challenge - learn to gorgive as God forgives and turn theory into practice

This week is the 3rd week in the 4 Week forgiveness challenge, to read the other posts click here. There are two things which make forgiveness stick: boundaries and love.  They actually work hand in hand.  One of the reasons I have struggled so much with forgiveness is because I didn’t know and didn’t practice both of these things.  I’m not saying that I’m perfect but it sure does make it easier for me to know when and why I’m struggling to forgive. As it has rightly been pointed out on my FB group, forgiveness doesn’t mean forgetting – not Continue Reading →

Does God still Heal today?

Does God still heal today?

Today I asked God to heal me.  It’s always an unspoken prayer, but today it was a heart cry.  Having an illness isn’t fun, it’s tiring, disheartening and the obvious painful and uncomfortable.  There are things I want to do like run, I have this deep desire to run and feel energetic and alive without the after effects and I have an even deeper desire for children and to be a healthy mum.  Although I would love the first, it’s the latter that makes my heart ache the most, it’s the latter which makes me feel like I wish God Continue Reading →
