Self-knowing as the Key to Clarity in Life and Purpose

Self knowing is your inner guidance system

Throughout May I have been doing a series on re-discovering your voice. I started it because a friend of mine had commented on how naturally and authentically I present my “brand” to the world, nothing “salesy” yet still attractive and aligned to who I am. I am not a business coach and don’t pretend to be but I guess what she was saying that in a space where people can definitely come across one way and be another, to have a brand that is authentic, congruent AND still attractive to potential clients is often not the case. You’ve probably heard Continue Reading →

Imagination, Belief, Desire

Imagine more

We cannot imagine anything new. What this means is that everything we have or can imagine has already been imagined, there is nothing new. Likewise, we cannot imagine anything that doesn’t already exist, we’re just not that intelligent to create something from nothing. All our imaginations are evidence of something that already exists in some shape or form. This is very good news because it means that if you can imagine and see the vision clearly it already exists out there somewhere. YHWH said, “Behold, the people are one, and they all have one language; and they begin to do this, 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 →

What no one EVER tells you about ‘Going BIG’

The Abundant Living Summit

Have you ever wanted to start a BIG project or up-level in some way but found yourself unable to cross the finishing line? Well, I want to share some insight that no one ever tells you about going BIG and what to do about it. This week I start promoting my first ever virtual summit and feeling terrified would not be far off from the truth. I’ve been beavering away since February, working long hours with sometimes one meal a day but guess what? That has NOT been the hardest thing.The hardest thing has been pushing past fear, resistance, doubts and Continue Reading →

Faith without Works is Dead (Health Behaviours and Positive Life Choices)

Life is a choice faith without works is dead

Last week we looked at the importance of authentic faith and it goes very nicely with this week’s topic Health Behaviours and Positive Life Choices. We already know the scripture Faith without works is dead, but as we saw from last week as Christians we tend to focus on only one half of the equation, Faith. I love how the AMP says it: So too, faith, if it does not have works [to back it up], is by itself dead [inoperative and ineffective]. (James 2: 17)

God’s Plan doesn’t Work for Me (Guest post by Ashlee Barclay)

New year is approaching and I can’t think of a better God-ordained post to share.  So glad to welcome Ashlee Barclay as this season’s guest blogger.  This post is full of timely wisdom and I’m sure will be a blessing to someone out there as we move into 2016.   Happy New Year 🙂 So I’m trying to live this life as the perfect teacher turned Stay-at-Home mom. I’m educated, ambitious, determined, and after all, we just have one child – “easy breezy”. That was me about a year ago. The teacher part, that was my choice that I had Continue Reading →

4 Things That Keep You From Achieving Your God Given Dreams (Guest Post by Dr. Naima Johnston – Bush)

Inside each of us is a purpose only we can fulfil.  As the cares of life encompass us we often lose sight of those dreams and settle less.  Are you living a life filled with Christ’s purpose and applying your gifts to be a blessing? It wasn’t until I quit my job to found Broken Box Ministries. I didn’t have the resources to do what God was calling me to do. I felt I was too old to begin pursuing my dream and I was unsure but I needed to trust God. Maybe you’re not called to quit your job Continue Reading →

Procrastination and Productivity: Friends or Enemies?

procrastination creativity and productvity

God has been speaking to me a lot about being more strategic these last few weeks. This stemmed from a realisation that creation may have been borne out from chaos but creativity is not chaotic. It has borne fruit because I have become more streamlined in how I spend my time and what I decide to focus on, in essence it has made me more ‘on purpose’. Take this week for example I started off with a list of 5 things which I wanted to accomplish and on Monday I managed to cross off one of the items that I Continue Reading →

Getting to the Heart of Success

heart minded and centred success

Everyone has a definition of success, but generally that definition is goal-centred.  Society and life has taught us that having goal, after goal that we meet is the only way to measure success and to truly be successful.  But let me ask you seriously, how many of your goals do you regularly meet? Let’s take the famous New Year’s resolution, how has that gone for you?  I see posts on social media nearly every month reminding me that another month has gone by and we only have X number of months left to achieve our goals. Not many people will Continue Reading →

Are you REALLY Ready? The Lesson from the Dream

Are you Really ready

Hello Friend, today I want to share with you a lesson that I learnt from a recent dream, I posted it as a YouTube video but I’ve also briefly summarised it just in case you prefer reading to listening. This short lesson focuses on the question of whether you’re really ready to move forwards and claim that victory that you have been wanting, working and praying for and one way to know if you’re probably not as ready as you thought. Enjoy 🙂
