I had a picture during worship recently which was so timely as we have been experiencing the longest, driest summer for many a year and so what I saw is exactly what we are all seeing in the natural. I saw a parched, brown desert floor covered in deep cracks and ravines. A light rain … More The water table is rising
I was having a conversation with a friend about the fact I always wear lots of colours, all at the same time (I had on a dress like an abstract piece of art you’d see in the Tate Modern as we were speaking). I explained to her that this hadn’t always been my story and … More Stop hiding!

During a prayer time God gave me a picture of a boom box, yes that’s right a boom box or a ghetto blaster!!
