My heart testifies

As a mirror reflects the rays of the noonday sun, so our hearts reflect back to God the very love the Father has for us. In the midst of trial, disappointments and my own failings, that still small voice in my heart testifies ‘I am my beloved’s and […]

Life in the flow

Miracles not magic. God is experienced. God is relationship and personal. In the words of Richard Rohr, it is the Divine Dance. Grace not works. The race is not always to the fastest, smartest or most qualified. Lean on God. Lean into God. Spirit not might. Your substance, […]

Pilgrim’s progress

Like most, I sometimes struggle living with the ‘contradiction’ that we each are – divine essence in human form. But I share, I write because I have become fully persuaded of this journey, and of the One that whispers in my heart and draws me back home to […]

Sweet surrender

I am willing to be challenged out of the comforts of my established thought patterns, judgements, values and decisions. I am willing to be stirred and steered by your Spirit. I am willing to grow and expand in new directions and opportunities. I am also willing to be […]
