Softly, Gently

Softly, gently,
I unfurl my wings
And rise on the life of Your breath
Into timeless places
With no beginning and no end,
And I am found in You, Perfect One. 
You’re my place of constant rest,
Where I am absent from the stuff, spit and clay 
Of my own mess....

Chimes

The sounds of pure, clear wind chimes travel to my heart on gentle south-easterly winds. They sing to me...

Light Like Clouds of Gold

On Thursday morning two weeks ago as I took the trash out before leaving for work, I halted mid-motion under the skyscape above. I must admit, I may have looked a little meerkat-like after poking my head out of my burrow (apartment) and then climbing all the way out in response to the “wowness” of the sky...

A Thank You

This is a thank you note to say I appreciate the fact that in YOU that I LIVE and move and have my being... not through anything else.

Make Way For The King

I see Jesus stepping onto platforms made from wood and nails, cement and bricks, electronics and social media, hearts and minds—platforms that have been made for religion, culture and the entertainment of man. Platforms that have made God subservient to their own agendas, ideas, and desires...

An Open Letter

If I am to be honest, sometimes seasons like this can be burdensome and tiring (depending on which lens I choose to look through), but just now in worship I began seeing some things that I now feel led to share with you. They are eternal things I value and treasure...

Look Up

So after many years, I think I finally get it (just dove right on in there, didn’t I?) If you live according to the flesh (place your eyes on your flesh) you will reap the things...

I Am His and He Is Mine

These days,
This era,
This time in history,
Has opened up a space for a clarion call,
An invitation,
That was never actually laid to rest in the first place...

Find True Life

I see small sailboats gliding over water. The water is pristine. Calm. Clear and enticing. The sailboats are all headed in the same direction with the breath of Holy Spirit...

A Prayer

Jesus, You are our word made flesh. You are our king of kings and our lord of lords. You are our great high priest, our bright and morning star. You drive back darkness...

It Only Takes One

Living in a small country town has had it’s benefits—especially during CoVid. Even though I live alone, I have been grateful for much: the obvious and the not-so-obvious...

No More Religion

Religion is a horrible ambassador for the character and qualities of the person of Jesus. Anyone who has truly encountered the love of Jesus cannot reject or deny Him without some kind of internal struggle, duress or distraction, because (as with any relationship) there is usually grief directly proceeding a breakup...

Between the Second and Third Heavens

I suppose it would be easy
For this universe and the next
To collapse in on themselves—
Whether through fatigue or choice—
In response to the chaotic airwaves currently
Having their say,
Their way,
Their complete disregard for Who Jesus is,
Where He stands,
And what He wants...

An Open Door

I woke to the sound of my flatmate leaving for work. I heard what I thought were his footsteps walking down the hallway, his keys jangling at the front door as he unlocked it, the chain falling as he unlatched it, and then the squeal of the front door as it opened...

You Will Have What Your Faith Expects

If you’re a believer and you’re fighting battles through particular religious filters and with your own intellect, then Jesus says, “you will have what your faith expects!” (Matt 9:29). In this case, heated discourse and circular debates will likely be one outcome of many...

Our Common Enemy

A Referee takes a piece of chalk and draws a line across the pavement. She writes "right" on the east side of the line, and "left" on the west side, before beckoning two people from the gathering crowd to come and stand on opposing sides of the line...

The Blood of Jesus

When I was about three years of age, my mum had just finished doing a kids bible study with me and she left the room. I was sitting on the edge of my bed when I looked up and saw Jesus nailed to the cross. I wasn’t scared or traumatised—even though...

Who, What, Why, Where, When and How?

Possibly the most powerful words of our time are, “who, what, why, where, when and how?” These words belong to questions. There are now many global narratives that are missing the fundamental questions that these words belong to

Lights in the Darkness

Roughly two weeks ago, I entered into a vision. The vision began in the daytime, but as I stood and watched, the day quickly turned to dusk. Then suddenly, as if a global light switch was flicked off, everything turned to complete darkness. It was...

Are You Willing to Catch the Updraft?

The flames of truth and love flicker and flare in the eyes of our King. There is no mistaking or misreading His intentions. He is not at all subtle (which I am entirely grateful for because I am so very literal), and He is purposeful in His pursuit. Why? because it is His desire that no one would perish... "for God so loved the world" (John 3:16). In our King's Throne Room, there is never-ending thunder and lightning. They declare His presence. His dominion. His holiness. And the sound of His voice is carried with clarity and authority above it all—it is stunning in the Throne Room of our King.

Modern-Day Slavery

People keep saying that slavery doesn’t exist today. It does. Human trafficking (aka modern-day slavery) is happening right now. This very minute. The Human Rights First website states that “according to a September 2017 report from the International Labor Organization (ILO) and Walk Free Foundation, an estimated 24.9 million victims

Encouragement From a Kookaburra

Yesterday while I was out and about, I came to the realisation that the atmosphere felt angry. It was oppressive and unkind, and it felt to me like creation was reeling from the effects of that anger. If I could put creation's response into words, I would say...

Fire, Gnarled Fists and Fury

My heart is hidden behind shaded eyes, But if you look—really look, You will find that At this moment, It is speaking to you. Take it or leave it— It will be here either way; Beating, Breathing oxygen, and

Back to Childlikeness

“Learn this well: Unless you dramatically change your way of thinking and become teachable, and learn about heaven’s kingdom realm with the wide-eyed wonder of a child, you will never be able to enter in. Whoever continually humbles himself to become like this gentle child is the greatest one in heaven’s kingdom realm." Matthew 18:3-4

All Eyes On Me

Earlier this year, on two separate occasions of worship whilst at home, I felt the presence of God so strongly in my room that I opened my eyes to find none other than Jesus standing there—very close. He had positioned His face in front of mine

An Open Letter

Re: Freedom of Information Dear Facebook, Google, and YouTube:  After observing your growing take-down of information over recent months, I would encourage you to have a re-read of your first amendment and take stock of the rights written therein.  Americans have a right to listen to dissenting voices because America is supposed to be a … Continue reading An Open Letter

After the Dream Dies

My womb once held a promise. A future. A hope and a dream. A child with ten fingers, ten toes, two eyes, one nose, and one spirit fashioned directly by the Light Himself. A child with my DNA bound and woven into the written notes of his or her being...

Busy Bees

Pollinators, are such amazing little distributors of life! They spread the joy, the gold dust, the flower nectar everywhere they go. Life on this planet literally wouldn’t be what it is without them.
