Miracles are not contrary to nature,
but only contrary to what we know about nature.
St. Augustine

Where there is great love there are always miracles.

Millions of people have listened to these lovely words spoken by little Logan with a big heart

Pat Robertson and Terry Meeuwsen discuss Logan Henderson's radio phone call that is now a YouTube/GodTube sensation



Sparkling white bench on emerald carpet,
sound of leather on willow.
Tremendous gaiety
in conversation
brings delight to me on my pillow,

Essence of lilac in May time,
the texture of velvet on roses,
sound of the curlew
in the glen,
as I gaze at the cattle in varying poses.

The market day and
scent of hay.
New mown grass with daisies.
Hawthorn decking
lanes of sun.
Gentle walks
for exercising ladies.

Turbulent sunsets
in cerise and mauve.
Wild wind rockets
through chimneys.
The tenderest bliss
from a child's gentle kiss,
All lead me to thank Him
on my knees

Just Joking

One day a Pastor and a Brother took a Visitor fishing on boat.

Once in the Middle of the lake, the Pastor said" I seem to have forgotten my fishing pole, be right back" and to the visitor's amazement stepped out of the boat and walked on top of the water towards the shore.

When he had returned, the Brother said "I need to use the restroom, be right back"

Again the visitor watched in amazement. Once the Brother returned, not wanting to be outdone, the visitor said " I need to use the restroom too"

As soon as he stepped out of the boat, he sank.

The Pastor nudged the Brother and said "We should have told him where the rocks were".







The Lord is saying.   You have not lost the power I have given you. Make the connection. Hold on to my hand, align yourself with my promises and you will again see the miraculous.


Resurrection power

The word dynamite comes from the greek word dunamis1411. Dunamis means miracle working power, ability, abundance, power, strength, violence, mighty wonderful work.

Jesus was the perfect conductor of God's power. It was the dunamis power of God that flowed unhindered through Jesus while He was on the earth to do the miraculous. By the finger of God, Jesus cast out devils and took the spoils from satan. Indeed the purpose for Jesus coming to the earth was to destroy the works of the enemy.

.....For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil
1 John 3:8

We need to understand that this same power is available to us. The dunamis power that flowed through Jesus can flow through us because we too have the Holy Spirit living within us, and consequently the same
power 1411.

And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power 1411 from on high. Luk 24:49

Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power 1411 that works in us, Eph 3:20

So how do we become a 'good conductor' of God's
power 1411, so that we can do the works that Jesus has assigned us to do..

Now you are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you. Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can you, except you abide in me.
I am the vine, you [are] the branches: He that abides in me, and I in him, the same brings forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing. Joh 15:3 -5

If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you. Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples. John 15.7

As we stay connected to Jesus and keep holding onto His promises we become "conductors" that have no gaps, cracks or short circuits, or rusty bits. The word of God cleanses us and power of God can flow unhindered to destroy the works of the enemy. If you've ever wondered why you have such a fight of faith to believe the promises of God..... here's the reason why!!!!.... The enemy doesn't like it when you line up with God's word because then you can ask anything and it shall be done. It means miracles, It means the impossible, It means healing for others, it means deliverance to the captives and sight to the blind. It means delivering the people from the power of the devil.


Much more than... No Fear

For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power 411, and of love, and of a sound mind. 2Ti 1:7

We usually quote this scripture when we are wanting to fend off fear and to help stabilise our minds. But this scripture is much more than that. It holds the promise that we have an offensive weapon to attack the kingdom of darkness.... the dunamis power 411 of God. When we really understand what we have and the power 411 that works in us we will start to tear down the works of the enemy.

(For the weapons of our warfare [are] not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) 2 Co 10:4

Sponsored walk

A 15km walk around Dovedale to help dig a well for constant fresh water for the rubbish dump children in Tenali, India.
Would you like to join us in the walk, sponsor us or organise sponsorship for us

Sponsored Walk

Message from Anita Ball

As you may already know a team of us went out to India in December of last year to visit with Brother Raju (who is also a medical doctor) and he took us round the tribal villages of Tenali that he cares for. He took us to many tribal villages but the one that needs our help now is the one in Guntur. This village is right next to a rubbish dump and they are desperately in need of a bore well. We need to raise at least £600 for this well to be dug and so I am going to do a walk around Dovedale at the end of June and for those of you who would like to sponsor me then please get in touch with either myself or Shirley to donate. There are so many good things that Brother Raju does for his people that if we are blessed to have more money than we need for the well this will then be spent feeding the children of the villages and helping Brother Raju provide medical care for all the tribal villages. I pray that God will put it in your heart to help these people. God bless to you all. Your sister in Christ Jesus xxx
