What Are You Doing in my Life Today Lord?

It's been great to listen again to the messages from REAL. I love listening back as I find that God often speaks to me again, sometimes in different ways, or perhaps really underlining something I heard in a conference.

When a conference is over, It's always a challenge to act on the word, rather than just hearing the word.

This year I began straight away with a Journal of thankfulness.

On the Sunday at Kerith, Kim read from her own journal.

She started writing it in response to her plea to God "What are you doing in my life TODAY, Lord?"

So I too have started a journal, recording and remembering the hand of God TODAY.

The first day included note of a lovely encouraging letter I received from a friend, time with a family member speaking honestly and openly, the honeysuckle in the garden flowering for the first time ever, and also an iced latte and slice of Red Velvet Cake - all blessings for which I thanked God.

I know this is going to be good for me, good for my focus (on Him, not me) , and good for my prayers and conversations, as I increasingly become more aware of His hand in my life.

My daily prayer is "I am looking for one small cloud, Lord" ( Beth Moore, re Elijah)

I'd love to know, what did God say to you, and what have you done with the teaching you heard at REAL, since REAL?

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 …
