Chess Pieces


Have you still got the chess piece we gave out at the end of Real? Where have you put it so that it acts as a visual provocation for us to remember we need to "make our move"?
Great to hear about the many converstaions around Kerith about the different chess pieces: what they mean, and what they might mean for each of us. Thanks to Mary for her prophetic thoughts - see if any resound with you.

What are your thoughts?

Pawn  Moves in small steps. Keep going to the end and you will be crowned the Queen
Rook  Moves in a clear direction. Can swap places with the King to protect him.
Knight  In God's army, moves in a way others can't, and breaks through the barriers.
Bishop  Sees things from an angle. This different perspective brings much needed strength in the fight against the enemy.
Queen  A key figure that can move in many spheres but needs protection from the enemy.
King  Your strength is in who you are, not what you do. Stand firm until the enemy is defeated.

Good morning my friend!
Well at first when I received my Chess Piece, I was told it was the Queen, who could move anywhere and do what she liked - I was quite pleased with that! However, the next time I saw the friend who had told me this, she exclaimed that we had both not got the Queens but the Kings, aha, different story there then. One step at a time was her interpretation, which seemed for fitting. After reading your blog today though, I can definitely see why my Chess Piece is the King, given the issues and situation which I am currently dealing with in my life, so it is very fitting, and very encouraging to know that I have this symbolic piece to keep me focussed on what I need to be doing. My King is on the kitchen windowsill, funnily enough where I seem to spend most of my time washing up and cooking, as do most of us lol! It is also a reminder of a wonderful time spent sharing with fantastic women at REAL, so when things become tough during a day, I only have to catch a glimpse of my King and it makes me feel much better. And finally, it reminds me of the King of Kings, our Father in Heaven, who loves each and everyone of us, very much, and is always there for us. So thank you for the wonderful Symbolic gift which we all received. x

I closed my eyes, reached into the basket, and I too received a king. As I've been doing a bit of work on 'me' lately, looking at who I am as supposed to what I do, the prophesy is very appropriate for me. My king is on my jewellery box by my mirror, and I am planning to put the 'I Am' card there as well, to remind me of who I am in Jesus which, as you said at the conference, can mean something different each day.
Thank you Catrina for all the work you put into such an amazing weekend. Hope you've got some rest time planned for the next six weeks! xx

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 …
