God gave me a word for this year, an overarching theme for 2023 which is… ‘expectancy’. I came to Him every day from New Year’s Day to ask Him what my word would be. On the 11th Jan I felt Him say the word expectancy which made me laugh as I realised I had been … More Gratitude is a key to fuel our….expectations!
I felt God highlight the word ‘Overshadow’ as I looked at my friends painting of a lion standing high behind a female warrior with a sword in her hand. It also reminded me of a picture I’d seen of a lion with its cub (see photo). I felt Him say that “we are overshadowed, by … More Overshadowed
You’re not too far gone! A friend of mine shared a picture of her paint brushes recently and they had gone all hard and inflexible because they were so full of paint and needed a deep clean. As I looked at the picture I felt God say “They’re not too far gone and nor are … More You’re not too far gone!
God woke me last night to talk to me about, of all things, ‘backseat drivers’. Yikes anyone know any? Not me surely! He spoke to me about the tiredness and weariness of many who have been back seat driving and are exhausted from doing things in their own strength.

As I was unpacking this with Him I realised that the first survival tip if you want to stay alive is to build a fire. It is in the top 5 tips in every … More Keep the home fires burning
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!
Following on from my blog on ‘Be what you want to see’ I felt the Father say that we all need to ‘play our part’. It can be so easy to be a bystander in the kingdom, standing on the sidelines criticising or grumbling about the things we don’t see happening that we want to … More Play your part
Recently I felt God challenge me with the words… You have to be what you want to see! I have felt Him nudge me a few times recently as I have been feeling a holy dissatisfaction with what I’m seeing. One of the things I wanted to see was what I was seeing in the … More Be what you want to see!
