Intercessors Unite!

Let me first begin by saying Generals International  is a worthwhile link for those interested in the spiritual health of our world and what God is saying to us through people like Cindy and Mike Jacobs.

Is it just me, or is this a season where God is stirring up intercessors? It feels like there is so much going on in our world, and God is readying his army for the war that is to come... intercessors like me, who haven't been in the same level of the 'war zone' for a season, are feeling stirred up. Stirred up for ACTION. Stirred up by EXPERIENCE or LACK OF...stirred up because our spirits are open to the leading of our creator....who has let us have a rest, if you could call it that....and now he is saying, "Awaken your hearts and Get ready for battle!"

Intercessors never 'sleep' in their gift, but there are seasons where we don't feel used as much. It's like I said, God gives us a rest....but we never switch off. It just seems there are times when we are allowed to sit on the sidelines while other team players have their turn in the game (war zone), before we go back in. 

Things are stirring in this world...God is moving, but he is going to move in even greater ways... people will be afraid of what is to come..but those who trust in the Lord will be saved. 

Isaiah 25:9In that day they will say, “Surely this is our God; we trusted in him, and he saved us. This is the LORD, we trusted in him; let us rejoice and be glad in his salvation.” (www.biblegateway.com)

So intercessors who are on the sidelines....it's time to Rise Up and be counted!! We have a war to WIN!!!

Life Dreams

Recently I was asked a question: "What is your dream?", and  "If you had no limits, what would you do?" 

Simple questions, right? Well, 10 years ago I had good answers! But now, I'm amazed to realise that my dreams from 10 years ago have all come to pass! Admittedly, my life didn't go the way I planned, but these delays in fulfilling dreams were all part of God's plan for my life! Now, as I said, I'm amazed...I had big dreams!

So, what were these dreams? I hear you ask...
1. I wanted to find the love of my life
2. I wanted to go to Europe....London, Italy & Ireland - to discover my roots.
3. I wanted to work in ministry serving children with disabilities
4. I wanted a 'real' job.

The first of these to be fulfilled was No.3. Through God's leading and placing the right people in my path, I was able to set up a successful ministry serving children with disabilities in my local church. This ministry ran for about 6 years. It was just me to begin with- volunteering in a Tamil speaking church with gorgeous children - 1 had autism and 2 had cerebral palsy. It was an afternoon service. I was also thrown in the deep end and ended up running the Sunday school class at the same time - until a new leader was found. After a few years, I moved the ministry into the main church for morning services. The boy with autism and I were together for the whole life of this ministry - other children came and went, but he was the only one who stayed. We have a special bond....I don't think I will ever be able to forget about him :) I had some wonderful leaders join my team, which was great, but there did come a time when God said he would remove his grace from the ministry, that it was time to move on.

The second dream to be fulfilled was my overseas trip. For 10 years I dreamed and yearned to go....in the end I just took the plunge and booked my tickets! I went alone and it was one of the best things I've ever done! I arrived in London and met some wonderful people who helped me settle in. I spent a week there before boarding a plane to Rome, where I joined a 2 week tour of Italy, then I returned to London before boarding a ferry to Ireland....after 9 nights in South-East Ireland I returned home....

This is where dream No. 1 was realised! The man of my dreams was staring me in the face! He had been in the picture for 3 years, but I just wasn't ready to see it....until I was on the other side of the world!

So, of course the last dream was finding a 'real' job. I had been working casual and agency for about 10 years, and I finally found myself in a good, permanent position.

So....now....I have everything I dreamed for.... so what's next???

I have so much more than what I dreamed for...but I guess the dreams I have now are simply to have a family and pay off our house. Isn't it funny how life changes.... I never thought I'd say goodbye to my ministry, but God opened the door and requested I walk through. There was no easy way to walk out, but I knew I needed to do it - I would have been working in my own strength to keep it going.

This also gave me the opportunity to listen to God's leading us out of that church. The One thing holding me back from moving on was that ministry. Once the ministry was gone, the strings were cut....it was time to walk through the new door. What a wonderful door that was! We found ourselves 'home' in a new church. Nobody told us to go there, we just felt led there. We have been there about a year now, and have not once looked back on our decision. We are where God wants us "for such a time as this" (Esther 4:14).

So, that's a bit on my dreams. I can't believe, even though it took much longer than I'd anticipated, that I've fulfilled all my major dreams! Of course there are some new ones, but the biggest ones seem to have been ticked off. I know I will have more as I get older. I look forward to seeing what the future holds:)

Spiritual perceptions..

I have to say I'm quite intrigued that for years my blog was just a blog in cyberspace....and now I have followers....and they keep adding up....and I've noticed there is a trend in what I perceive to be their beliefs...

Interesting.... intriguing.... I am not stupid;) I understand the spiritual world and this intrigues me:)

The toilet bowl of morals...

What is wrong with our country!
Now the minority group who would rather fight for legal abortions and save the trees has been given higher power in government!

The one party who takes pride in claiming their anti-moral views and policies... who want abortion legalised....
The one party who can be blamed in part for fuelling the Black Saturday fires.... because of them, it was illegal for people to clear the 'rubbish' of trees and leaves etc from their properties. They were not allowed to burn off on their own properties....then the fires came through and burned and burned and burned.....because there was so much 'rubbish' to keep it going!

Who in their right mind would allow such a party more power?!?!?!
Well, it seems Aussies who value morals are being gradually pushed aside...to allow everything we do not support to run our country. This is just disgusting and disgraceful....it is also, unfortunately, predicted.... Revelation tells us men will become lovers of themselves and basically that the world will become more 'lawless' and immoral....

I just cannot believe this party has been given so much power.....it almost makes my blood curdle....

Just Ramblin:)

I purchased a pair of bowling shoes today....haven't paid yet, but they have been put aside for me:)
I figured since I have been going almost weekly with my 1:1 client, and how often their hire shoes cause me pain, it would be an investment to purchase my own. At least, even if they're as flat as the hire ones, I can put orthotics and thick socks in them! It's so frustrating when you can't wear flat shoes, and every time you try, you end up in pain! It's either my damaged tendon playing up, or my knees because they don't have the arch support. I always feel like a clown trying to walk in the hire shoes! lol!

So next week, I'll have my own!:) They were more than half price, so the selection wasn't great, but they are nice enough. I liked a white pair with pearly light blue stripes, but they didn't fit, so I got white with black stripes.

Ok, that's my ramble for today:) I think I better go and figure out dinner before I have to leave for my prayer meeting tonight:)

Maybe my new shoes will give me a better score! hehehehe!

Personal thoughts on Bin Laden.....

This week has really brought home how sad our world has become... when one government decides to kill a man for "justice".... when all people want is the bad guy's head.....to kill him....wipe him off the planet. They just want to create "Game Over". It all just makes me feel sick...

No, that man was not innocent....no, the game will not be over...and no, I'm not happy he was killed in cold blood....but I am also feeling for all the families affected by his purely evil actions. I remember waking up to the news on 9/11 and my thoughts immediately went to my family who were in the US... who were originally supposed to be in one of the affected areas, but thank God, things didn't work out as planned, and they were nowhere near the tragedy. Unfortunately many more people were not able to share in my and my family's relief.

It's just shocking how one person can cause so much heartache and tragedy... It took just One person. Many people followed this one person, making him able to carry out his evil plan. Nobody wins.


What I find sickening is not that he is dead....it's the fact that "evil was repaid with evil". Seriously, what good is it to try to fight darkness with darkness? I think these words were first spoken by Martin Luther King or MLKing Jr (based on the bible). If this world continues to fight evil with watered-down versions of evil....what will we have left? Now he is gone....is that supposed to be the end of terrorism? I don't think so!! It seems like Obama has stirred up a beehive...and we are all affected by his actions. Again, he is just One person.

Personally, I don't believe anybody has the right to take another's life. Admittedly, some people may seem to deserve to have their life terminated...but they still have a soul....and while they are still alive, there is still time for them to find the real peace of a transformed life....but if their life is prematurely terminated, then they have been stripped of  their freedom to find Jesus. Whether or not they do find him is not the important factor....it's more that they have been stripped of that time...

I know many people will disagree with me....but when you understand the value of eternal life and a simple soul....then what right does anybody have to terminate another's life! Even if they've already terminated many other's lives...where does the person stand who demanded his life be terminated?

As the bible says re the adulterous woman....Whoever is free of sin should cast the first stone... not one person felt they had the right to stone her to death....even though it was within the law to do so...

Ok, I'm going to be blunt:  Why are all you "Followers" following me?
If you genuinely care about me, Welcome. If you're just trying to spam me, then go away and do something better with your time!!

Friends: Ignore these Followers. I have NOT endorsed them!

Easter....and Life in general

I haven't posted for what seems like years!


It's probably a good sign my life is pretty full and not much time to be bored....although....at the same time, the "time to be bored" also includes the time to reflect.... you don't realise how important that is until you realise you have stopped...


We've just ended a 5day long weekend thanks to Easter:) It was a busy weekend for me...and we were both looking forward to some quality time together on Mon& Tue... thanks to a stupid mouse, we were too tired to do much! Makes me think...is that what bad things in our lives do....you put out the bait and traps, but they manage to get into a place YOU can't access...so the bait and traps are useless....to a point.


We just have to find a new method of reaching that stupid, cheeky mouse! Of ALL the places in our house, it chose the roof above our bed. We have a long house, so I don't think it's a safe idea to try and crawl half the length for a mouse....



Easter was awesome.....we started with a 6.30am prayer meeting, literally äround the cross", then shared a hot cross bun breakfast....before a moving Good Friday service. I thinkour minister did an awesome job with Easter. Easter Sunday was good....our prayer group were asked to fast from 12noon to midnight.... after being rostered a day each during the week. I must be honest....I really struggled with my day, but on Sunday I had worked out a way to make it work. I believe our prayers have been answered, and we will see HUGE things in the near future!:):):) I know I am planted in the right church:) God led us there, and we know it was in His perfect timing.


My thougths are everywhere today! I'm excited to be on a working internet connection....but this keyboard is something to get used to! I've moved out of my parent's home....but a lot of my stuff is still here... I'm lucky they don't complain! But today I have come to use their internet AND clear out more of my stuff... 10+years of stuff....You probably wouldn't believe I've already gone through about half.....it still looks like heaps!

Oh well. At least I know that if I clear out their house, I won't want to keep it all at my house. I've lived without it for almost 3yrs....so I can do it....

Ok, now I better just get started on my To-Do list....then get stuck into the stuff`!

Remembering people....

Over the last few days, I have had some girls on my mind...girls I haven't seen in over 10years...but they are still close to my heart. They wouldn't be 'girls' any more! Every so often God places them on my heart. 


Around 1998 or 1999 we were on a camp together at Lake Yellingbo. I was their cabin leader. Their names were Samantha, Melissa, Loren and I think Jade. You girls were amazing. I think we learned a lot together. You definitely made me work for my 'money'! (There was no money of course! We were all volunteers).


One of you locked yourself in a room...I remember that...as much grief as you gave me, I don't think I said it then, but I could understand why you did it. It wasn't the appropriate thing to do, but I could understand. 


I remember you all requesting me to pray with you at bedtime. I never prayed aloud but you girls made me break that fear. We had good moments in that cabin.


The funniest part of camp...when we had to perform at the Talent Show. Do you remember the Cinderella skit you did that just went completely off track!? That was hilarious and painful at the same time. I'll never forget that! I know you girls had heaps of fun doing it! 


You girls will always have a place in my heart....I would really love to see how your lives have turned out. 
If any of you happen to stumble across my blog, please say hi! ;)

Happy New Year 2011!!

My theme for January: Don't be afraid to walk through the door open before you! 


2011 is a new year. An unopened book that has now been opened. It's time to start the journey and put the words on the paper! God knows what the pages hold, but we need to walk through them and experience them.


This will be another great year of blessings and joy- if that's what you expect!:)
As my minister quoted on Sunday, God "knows the plans he has for you. Plans to prosper you and not harm you. Plans to give you a hope and a future". (Jeremiah 29:11)
Already I know of people who have lost loved ones this year...and my family is approaching our 6th anniversary of nanna's death. It still feels like yesterday.... I don't understand why God would allow people to begin the year with such sorrow...but then again, maybe those who died weren't able to hold on any longer...that makes it more understandable. Still, it's sad. My nanna died tragically, and unexpectedly. Her time came and nobody could do anything to change that. I'm sure all the family at one time or more has wished they could've been with her to stop her accident...but we weren't there and we can't go back. I loved my nanna so much. She was a big part of my life. 


I can't believe it has been 6 years... but the 80years prior to that were more important! I knew her for only 26 of those 80 years, but we both had an impact on each others' lives. I was her first grandchild. She lost her husband 2 years prior to my birth, and she said I gave her a new lease on life. When she met me...she said my baby eyes said to her that everything would be alright. She never stopped telling me that story....and now she's not here to tell me, my parents continue to tell me. That simple story brings joy and special memories.


I didn't expect this post to go this way! Enjoying the memories:)


Hope you are all enjoying the beginning of your new year!
