Great Weapons

I'm so glad that my recent blogs about Speaking Truth Out Loud have been so helpful to people.
Thanks for your encouragements.
It's so good to know we're not alone.
It's so good to be in community.

Here's some great verses a friend sent me this week - as she said "They were so helpful to me when I was being ambushed with fears and negativity a few weeks ago. They are the phrases from 2 Samuel 22 which I read over and over and used to fight. Great weapons".

  • The Lord is my Rock
  • The torrents of destruction overwhelmed me
  • In my distress I called to the Lord
  • My cry came to his ears
  • He reached down from on high
  • He rescued me from .. my foes who were too strong for me
  • He rescued me because he delighted in me
  • The Lord turns my darkness into light
  • He enables me to stand on the heights
  • He trains my hands for battle
  • You give me my shield of victory
  • I pursued my enemies and crushed them
  • You armed me with strength for battle
  • From violent men you rescued me
  • Therefore I will praise you O Lord
    I'd love to hear about your "weapons" too.

    African sky

    I'm writing this in the eerie light of Monday afternoon - anyone else noticed the yellow-tinged sky? I'm reliably informed (thanks Jake!) that the high winds are picking up dust particles from Liberia and North Africa, turning our sky a yellowish colour and definitely giving off an unusual atmosphere! Kind of intriguing too, as we are about to leave for a 10 day trip to Zambia this evening! We're flying overnight, and when we get there temperatures are high 90s - I have no idea how I'm going to cope with that at I'm not even thinking about it right now! 
    We'll stay a few days in Lusaka, visiting Sam and Hannah Fairs-Billam and their girls;  and Tehila, the charity they run, Then it's a 5 hour journey North to reconnect with the pastors and families in Serenje, and visit the Dormitory to meet the girls. 
    Please do pray for us - safety and good health, pray for our families, pray that everywhere we go we take people up in their lift! (If like me you…

    Not the Summer I'd Planned

    "Life's detours means  God wants you to run right into His arms  so He can reconstruct your heart"  Ann Voskamp
    Well, let's just say that it's not been the summer I thought I was going to have!!! 
    I'm so grateful we had our relaxing holiday in the sunshine
    I'm so grateful it's summer time, and therefore not so many work commitments
    I'm so grateful for my family being around
    I'm so grateful for a wonderful and kind church family

    If I was going to have an accident slip over on the back door my wedges...feeding the dogs.. and dislocate and fracture my ankle...then I'm so glad I was at home with family around and with access to swift expert medical help.

    The accident was so sudden and it was immediately obvious that I couldn't sort it on my own! I'm pretty squeamish so I'll save you the details, but the angle of my foot prompted me to say out loud "I've just done something really bad".

    Funny isn't it, when yo…

    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 …
