Genuine love is so contrary to human nature
that its presence bears witness to an extraordinary power.

all that faced you, but I have brought you through. The worse

A Vision of the Trials and Testings that come against the
love and sovereinty of Jesus
"This morning the Lord gave me 3 visions. In the first
one He took me to a high cliff. We were stood at the top on
the edge looking over the sea. The sea was raging. It went out
and came in each time more furiously as if to swallow us up.
It came up so high and loud but could only leave a fine mist
even when it reached the top of the cliff. . However, sometimes
it would wet us through but it was a good feeling. One of excitement
and adventure that even the great power behind the mighty ocean
had to keep its boundaries. Jesus said He wanted me to view
every trial like this, with excitement not fear
The second vision Jesus took me into a cave. He told me to
sit on one of the small boulders there. From the small doorway
of the cave the sea would send in a small pool of water on the
sand on the floor of the cave. Each time it came in it never
even reached my feet. The sea could have surely filled the cave
and killed me, but I knew it could not. I could see how easy
it is to allow our imaginations to consider the fear but Jesus
wanted me to know He sets the boundaries of the sea and the
boundaries of our trials.
In the third vision, I was climbing up a staircase hewn into
the cliff side that went from top to bottom diagonally. It had
a handrail on it. Jesus was at my side. The sea was furiously
coming in and hitting the cliff and it and me were being washed.
I felt the cliff were the circumstances. I knew that Jesus wanted
me to hold onto the handrail and I knew the handrail was the
word and it would serve to stop me being washed away. And all
the sea could do was wash me and the circumstances of my life.
These were the hard trials that we are to walk through. It takes
great perseverance not just to stay on the stairs but to keep
climbing. But there is a great reward.
Sometimes we watch from high and see the tumultuous problems
in the world. But we are safe
Sometimes we are in a trapped situation where God draws us near
and asks us to rest and trust where if He doesn't control the
situation...we've had it. It means total trust
Sometimes we find ourselves in a refining process where we are
asked to walk by faith and to trust in Gods promises".
If you've not yet read Julie Peace's book... its a must!!
I cried so much when I read it... it was riveting...
A great present for an unbeliever.

Can safely say that I've
had a steep learning curve this month. Fell down stairs
on April fools day (Not sure what that says about me)
Broke shoulder and wrist, both bad breaks and ruptured
a muscle. But survived to tell the tale and learnt once
again that when God says rejoice in all things... thats
exactly what it means.
I certainly can thank for
my lovely friends and family, for all their prayers,
support and comfort. Also those who have not just run
the Sanctuary bookstall but for developing it. I'm so
grateful to God for how many lonely hurting people get
Thank you also to my sister
Miriam for her kindness in running me places.
God sent an angel called
Vaidah to live at 26 She has been a wonderful help and
Thanks too for inumerable
kindnesses, prayers and love to....

The decision has
been made. I am a disciple of Jesus Christ. I won't look back,

down, back away, or be still. My past is redeemed, my present

walking, small planning, smooth knees, colorless dreams, tame
mundane talking, chintzy giving, and dwarfed goals.
no longer need preeminence, prosperity, position, promotions,
popularity. I don't have to be right, first, tops, recognized,
regarded, or rewarded. I now live by presence, learn by faith,
patience, lift by prayer, and labor by power.

The Body of Christ is arising
as an army
Here at the beginning of 2013,
much ground is being taken for Christ, as unity, truth and love
between His members is increasing and a growing awareness that
denominational barriers are fading into insignificance in the
light of the love we have for our brothers and sisters in God's
family. As we are becoming more effective we are also seeing
increasing battles in our circles of fellowship, as issues are
coming to a head to be resolved. On the 12th December 2012 at
the end of a day of listening to the Lord, a strategy was revealed
to build a prayer wall that will endeavour to help to bring
protection on every side for individuals and their families
in this battle. Read

keys to hearing God
Key #1 - God's voice in our hearts sounds
like a flow of spontaneous
thoughts. Therefore, when I tune to God, I tune to spontaneity.
Key #2 - I must learn to still my own thoughts
and emotions, so that I can
sense God's flow of thoughts and emotions within me.
Key #3 - As I pray, I fix the eyes of my
heart upon Jesus, seeing in the
spirit the dreams and visions of Almighty God.
Key #4 - Journaling, the writing out of our
prayers and God's answers,
provides a great new freedom in hearing God's voice.

Men's healing meeting
Chips, teas, coffees provided
We are going to hold a men's meeting at the
Christian bookstall at 12:15pm
In a vision Jesus took me to a dark place
and I saw dimly, people sat. Jesus told me to speak. As I spoke
the word "Those who sit in darkness have seen a great light"
I saw the people get up and go to Jesus's feet. He told me to
hold one of their hands as I did we walked forward, my other hand
holding on to Jesus's hand and I followed Him. They were all chained
together, and as we walked into the light I saw their chains falling
The Father told me that this was to do with
the healing meetings we would hold for men.
I prayed with several of the others about
this, and we all felt that we should go ahead. So here goes and
lets see what God's gonna do.!!!!!
