God Plus Normal Equals Something Spectacular

I’d love to tell you I have some kind of trumpet-fare existence, the source of these weekly posts comes from the journals of a well-travelled, well-seasoned person who has impressive and mind-blowing interactions with the world and the people who live on it. Totes not… I am sitting here typing in my pyjamas, (which I bought online from Target) drinking my salted, buttered coffee at a desk which needs a right good clean! I have lived in a series of rural towns, including this one, in a state whose total population just squeaks over half a million people. I’ve been here all my life, except for a few forays internationally, which were done quite yokel-ly, with no touring. Compared to a lot of p

Moving To Peace One Step At A Time

There are two kinds of ‘taking yourself seriously’. I got caught in the trap of the first kind for many years. I am a little bit little. At 5 foot 3 inches (on a good day) with dark curly hair and a complexion which is olive around the edges, I am the human equivalent of a Hobbit.

Living On The Edge Of Change (Don't Miss The Forest For The Trees)

Have you ever spent a long time working in agreement with God for something which seems to always just be around the corner, or just over the edge, or so close you can smell it…but never quite happening? I used the word “working” for a reason. I’m talking about being actively involved in pursuing things with God. Doing our part in the things He is bringing about in our lives. Participating in the process of healing, participating in the process of social activity, pursuing the process of relationship with Him, seeking His face and actively taking the steps He has set out for us to take.
