No one has ever told me this before

One Sunday morning I went to the 7:30 service at St Johns, intended on going to Albert St for 9:00, I  took a left instead of a right and ended up on the corner of Edward and Queen Streets (God’s plan not mine). A homeless man was there selling The Big Issue magazine.  The lights went green, he tried to sell to me, I said sorry I need to cross, I walked a few feet, I was running very late, I felt bad for not talking to that man, I repented of it,& turned back., I spoke to him, asked what he would do with the


I was healed!

My dear friend from down south would like to share her last few weeks with you.  By the way this gorgeous little woman of God is in her eighties. 

“Two weeks before Christmas I went to see my doctor regarding a couple of sunspots on my face.  He checked them and said he could fix them no problem…but he said he was more concerned about a BCC on the left side of my nose.  It had to come off but would need a biopsy needle and would be quite painful.  I told him I would like to leave it until after Christmas.  Naturally I prayed that the Lord would sort it out and take care of me. 


Our Government

I have been studying up on our system of government. Based on the Westminster system with it’s 3 separate groups running checks and balances on each other. It’s quite a clever way of avoiding corruption really. We permit an opposition which “keeps them honest”. If we want to replace it, it would have to be something really new and revolutionary. No good basing it on BC(before Christ) religions whose legal system is basically ‘an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth’

Born Again?

So what’s this born again thing, is it some weird thing made up by weird Christians? It comes from a conversation Jesus was having with a highly educated religious leader of the time asking basically how do you get to heaven? He replied that you have to be born of water (natural birth) and then again of the Spirit. By this he meant that you can’t learn or earn your way to heaven.

Holy Spirit

I just realised that the Holy Spirit is perfect. He knows when to hold back, when to comfort, when to counsel, when to have a joke and when to show his love. He’s always fair and balanced. It is hard to comprehend a perfect person let alone his desire to come and live with, or in, us but he has and does. What an enormous change he creates in us. He literally switches our Spirit on, the famous ‘born again’ experience. 

Jesus, my inspiration

I just love orangey reddy colours. I came to a point with my music and performing about 2 years ago where I was a bit unhappy so I thought I would turn everything over to Jesus. He would be my promoter and inspiration /purpose. I know it sounds a bit obsurd but without any stress and struggle everything fell into place. The people I’ve met and the places I’ve been have been phenomenal. He has used me and music to change peoples lives for the better. It’s amazing having his Spirit as a constant companion

An observation

I’ve noticed and experienced that there are many things in life that can give us peace. Alcohol is a good example, it works on the mind and body but wears off, after a while needing top ups, and further on affecting our health and relationships. Some peace is like sugar lovely but addictive. True freedom is when our spirits are freed, then it is a permanent freedom. Where the Spirit of God is, there is this kind of freedom. Just love it!
