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...

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

As a tiny, uprooted redwood sapling, I was brought to this city of refuge in the hands of the Master Gardener. In my previous environment, I'd had many near-misses with death because the person I had been gifted to hadn't seen my value. My worth. I was only an
