Putting Myself in God's Path

Last night was week 2 of the Captivating Course. Val and Heather are doing a great job of leading it; and there are 50 women booked in. I went along last week and was overwhelmed with the realisation that all of those women are sacrificing time to be there - they are doing that very rare thing, doing something for themselves! It's often something we women find hard to do, or even think of or make plans for, isn't it? But to me it spoke of their intentionality - deciding to carve out time, to deliberately put themselves in  a place where God will speak to them , challenge, change and bless them. I was impressed!
I'm praying for those women - especially as they have their "time out" (or "date night" as I've heard one woman call it) with God. God bless you as you seek Him!

It's a choice, right? A choice to put yourself in a deliberate path - a path of God's blessing ; a path where you know God will speak to you and your life will be impacted. You know what I'm going to ask, don't you...are you going to put yourself in that God-path by booking to come to the Real Conference? It will mean prioritising, choosing, arranging. It may mean sacrificing. It's a deliberate act  to choose to be there - and I'd really love you to be there!

This week I've had lots and lots of work to do - paid work and volunteer work. Work at home and outside the home,Tonight I'm weary, but now almost all of the jobs have been done and I'm looking forward to tomorrow. Tomorrow I will rise early, then travel into London to join hundreds(thousands probably) of other women for the Hillsong London Colour Conference.  I can't wait to see all those women in the Royal Albert Hall. I can't wait to just be, and listen, and learn. I can't wait to see and experience it all - both for me personally and for Real. I know I'll be inspired and changed. It's worth all it takes to get there!
So, thank you for your help, lovely friends of me, the children and our dog! See you all on Sunday.
ps. Simon ate sheep's brain today ...I'm hoping for something far nicer for me over the next couple of days, plus quite a few lovely cups of coffee!

I have felt God speaking to me about just that, recently......I shared it in Life Group last week and hope that I have encouraged our lovely ladies to come to REAL. So important to choose right, easier not to do things sometimes but God always breaks in when we do - am even going to come to church tonight to do just that! Thank you for reminding me again.

I Have Decided To Follow Jesus, No Turning Back

I have decided to follow Jesus...no turning back.Take a listen to this beautiful song from Hillsong - every time I hear these words and sing along it changes my perspective, turns me around, gets my focus off me and onto Jesus - "Christ Is Enough For Me". ...No turning back, I've been set free...Christ is enough for me.

Discover your Worth, your Strength, your Purpose

Following a successful Kerith launch in the Spring, Sarah Farley and her team are ready to go again,leading their 2nd SHINE course.
SHINE is an eight week self esteem course for women. The evenings are a mixture of Talks and discussion time, with a practical approach to learning. It's a really encouraging environment, and the evenings are a lot of fun. The course starts this Tuesday evening, and there are still some spaces available.Here's your personal invite from Sarah!Shine is about to run again and I'm excited to see what God is going to do this time round. If you haven't already heard, Shine is a course designed for women who want to live their life in abundance, the way God designed them to live it. To recognise all their worth, to grow in self-esteem, to see all their strengths and positives and ultimately live a life of purpose.We've still got a few places left so if you're interested there's more information here on the Kerith website, where you can…

It's been a while

So, I've been gone a while....and  I've been wondering about launching a new blog - perhaps a new look,a new blog, a totally new start? In the wondering I've done nothing, so instead, I'm just going to pick it up again, and start writing.... 
So this week I had the privilege of spending time with some Prayer warriors in the Kerith Prayer room. We gathered to pray for the upcoming Mission Trips to Albania and Macedonia.  - They did me such good, as they shared what God had been saying to them in their own prayer times - words of encouragement that He will bring restoration of relationships; He will bring healing ; there will be lots of new people who haven't been to UNIKE before; there'll be a fresh move of the Holy Spirit; somethingnewandmoreis going to happen this year; He is going to take things to another level. You can imagine how excited I was to hear these whispers from God - join me in a moment's prayer right now, that we'll see Him work?
It's …
