"Everything makes soup"






The Lord is saying: Yes you have begun to see a bigger picture. Does it seem so magnificent and awesome that it is to big and good to be true? Then let me tell you child, not one of my plans for you shall fall to the ground. Not one of your dreams shall dissolve into nothing. All the thoughts I have towards you, as many as the grains of sands on the seashore, every one of them will materialise, and you will know and those around you, that have seen your struggles, will know.... that... I AM GOD


The story of your life may have been one of suffering pain and humiliation but that is only one aspect of your life, only one side of the coin. It is not the end of the story. Every pain, every adverse circumstance will read like a novel with an amazing ending. Job couldn't envisage a good ending when he was covered in boils, abandoned and hurting. But God had a plan. God has a plan for your life too. You will start to see it when you rise up in your inner man and start to walk with God into the destiny He has for you. Never quit, no matter what has happened to you. God is a just God. He holds the scales and balances. The worse your life was as a child, the more intriquing will your story read in the annals in the history of the saints. And greater will be the glory given to God when He turns your life around. Never give up but continue. No matter how low you have fallen..... Rise up!!!! God will take you where you are at and weave your mistakes into your story..


The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand,Till I make thine enemies thy footstool. Luke 20 42 & 43

And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus: Ephesians 2:6

“Then comes the end, when he delivers the kingdom to God the Father after destroying every rule and every authority and power. For he must reign until he has put all his enemies under his feet. The last enemy to be destroyed is death. ‘For God has put ALL THINGS in subjection under his feet.’ ” 1 Corinthians 15:24.....

..and since we are children, then we are heirs also: first of all heirs of God and secondly joint heirs with Christ, so that if we do suffer together, we shall also be glorified together as heirs.
Romans 8:17"

If we suffer, we shall also reign with Him" (2 Tim. 2:12a).

Therefore let no man glory in men. For all things are your's; Whether Paul, or Apollos, or Cephas, or the world, or life, or death, or things present, or things to come; all are your's; And ye are Christ's; and Christ is God's.
1 Corinthians 21-23


I will proclaim the decree of the LORD, who said to me, `You are my son; today I am your father.Only ask it of me, and I will make your inheritance the nations, your possession the ends of the earth. With an iron rod you shall shepherd them, like a clay pot you will shatter them.Psalm 2 7-9

Notice how the promise to rule over the nations was given to Jesus, then Jesus shares this with us.

And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations:And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father.
Rev 2.26, 27










And each one will say: ...Continued

I see You are in all creation moving
O, so gently,
ouching each heart with the downy feather of Divine love,
moving so steadily and peacefully amongst us, removing the sharp stones l
est we stub our toes.

How kind you are my God,
the peace from the heavens
speaks of you,
Who with unfathomable love
over-look your flock.

O, how we love You DivineShepherd, You Who have promised never to
" leave us orphans"

How can we ever thank you 
Dearest Saviour,

How can we thank You for
Your life's blood

Show us DivineTeacher
the way to be thankful
before Your Majesty
We who are nothing and are precious in your sight,

We who are called by Your name since the beginning of time.

We to whom You tell
"every hair of your head is n
find ourselves full of awe,

And awe is the beginning of wisdom
The priceless gem you lay before us,
so Lord You have brought us here in order that we might perceive this precious stone beyond price ..this wisdom

We come before You then
Sacred Teacher and ask that our eyes, ears and hearts may be opened to receive
Your wisdom,

You Who forever show us the way,
show us how to be wise.

To be wise in order that Your kingdom may come amongst us and Your name may be glorified in us
for all time and for all eternity."
