    The Cocoon of Transformation

    “As you step out in faith I will come. Do not fear! Do not fear the past. The enemy has come to steal, kill and destroy, but you are in the delivery room now, you are about to give birth. You will give birth in many ways. Different ways than you imagine. Things that are not even on your radar or agenda. I have had to strip you of all else, because otherwise you wouldn’t see, recognise, or do the things I’m calling you to. New things. Creative things. Inspired things. Things never done before, never even thought of or imagined. Keep your mind open. Follow my lead in creativity,…

    Empowered in Identity

    I love the hashtag and movement in social media “Empowered Women Empower Women.” It’s so wonderful that the world itself is recognising and rectifying the influence that we can have on one another to uplift, strengthen, encourage and inspire. While I embrace this sentiment and have even used it a few times myself, God revealed a much deeper level of significance of this quote to me recently (and not just for us sisters!) – a depth defined only in him and his truths. While there is definitely potency in this phrase as it is being used around the world today, I believe God has a more powerful call for us…

    Up and Out of the Pit

    “Lift your eyes from what you despise. Set your sights on me. Look up! Look up child! Don’t look around the pit, all you will see is the darkness that surrounds you and the mud that you are stuck in. If you look to your circumstances you will only be discouraged. You will only be disappointed. You will only feel depression and despair and discouragement. Lift your eyes to me. In the midst of the desolate pit and the muddy mess you are in, look up to me. I am the light at the top of the pit. You may be down low, but the deeper the pit, the higher…

    The Naked Truth

    “I am trying to pour out my new wine to you my child, but you have to let me take control. Control of your life. Control of the hurt and pain of your past. Control of the fear of facing the truth. Fear of what you look like naked, stripped bare of all you have built, exposed for all to see. You need to face yourself naked first. You need to see yourself as intimately you. You need to see what you really look like. Just you. Nothing else. No hiding, no coverings, just you. Then I can clothe you. You don’t need to clothe yourself in the things that…

    Gracefully Broken

    “I see my beautiful, broken child. A beautiful daughter, son, mother, father, sister, brother, friend – who is striving, working, trying, stressed, pressured, performing, breaking and exhausted. I see my child who cares more about their portrayal than the precious life I have given them. I see the gold, the beauty, the treasures, the gems that I have placed with in them, but they are hidden down way below the surface. Hidden below layers of performance and perfection. Hidden under insecurities. Hidden under feelings of inadequacy and failure.  I see the truth amongst the lies. I see the gold. I see what I’ve placed within. I see the heart that…

    Weapons of Warfare

    “Don’t rehearse the lies, the doubt, don’t dwell on the disappointment, but fill yourself with my words and my promises. I have already given you everything to empower and equip you with all you need to live victoriously in this life. I have already paid the price and purchased it all for you. The payment is in my blood. The power is in my resurrection. The inheritance is yours for the taking. Take it, my Child. Take it and use it and you will see the walls come crumbling down. You will see the battlefield emptied of the enemy because you are wielding my weapons. My weapons work. My weapons…

I love you. I love you my precious child. I have chosen you, I call you mine, you are so special to me. My favourite! I have so much for you to do with me, we will do it together. You won’t get tired or weary when you follow my lead and partner with me to do what I have called you to do.  It…

    I am Closest in Your Weakness

    “Expect me to move! Expect me to come in power and deliver you from all that is holding you back! Expect me to protect you and your family. Expect me to fulfil my promises to you! Remove all doubt, disbelief and double-mindedness. My words and promises are true, I have given you my signs and wonders -you are seeing correctly and you are receiving my nudges and winks. I am here. I am moving. I am showing you, revealing myself to you and opening your eyes. I’m trying to get your attention. I am all around you and drawing you to me all day long, even in the everyday, mundane…

    The Breaking Will Produce the Breakthrough

    “I am doing a NEW THING in you! I am making ALL THINGS NEW! I am coming! Can you not see? Can you not discern this new day around you? As certain as the seasons and as the sun each day and every morning I am making all things new! I am renewing you. I am renewing this house and this home, this family and this life. Do not give up! Do not give in, THE BATTLE IS FIERCE BUT THE VICTORY IS NEAR! You are on the cusp, on the verge, at the tipping point where I’m about to FLOOD IN and pour out heaven all over you –…

    Ophelia’s Birth Story

    Let me begin by saying that I LOVE giving birth. I know, I’m crazy! But I really, truly love it and the entire pregnancy feels worthwhile knowing that it’s building towards that amazing moment where I will go into labour and birth my child – meeting them for that first precious encounter where I lift their gooey, floppy body onto my chest and gaze into their tiny newborn eyes as they look around trying to adjust to this foreign world they have been brought into. All the highs and oxytocin vibes! This being my fourth child, I began the pregnancy as excited as always and would lay my head down…
