When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hang on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn. ~ Harriet Beecher Stowe:

The storm.

by Catherine O'Halloran.


The earth today is soft and warm

The clouds do say there will be a storm

Of lightening flashing fast and long,

And thunder roaring with non melodious song.

The changes ring across the earth,

And halt the bird song filled with mirth

As storm clouds roll and darkness falls

And lifts the heads of the cattle in stalls.






The Lord is saying. You have stood your ground, yet there are more shakings to come, do not be complacent but take your strength from this time of refreshment to build yourself up for the next wave. I will keep your feet if you ask me and I will make sure that whatever comes against you will not hurt you. However the steadier you can keep yourself in my love during the shaking the more the reward when all is settled and the dust has cleared.

Hebrews 12: 26 -29 Whose voice then shook the earth: but now he hath promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven. And this word, Yet once more, signifieth the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken may remain. Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear: For our God is a consuming fire.


“I had an experience a couple years ago. I had a vision of all humanity and the Lord showed me a storm. It was unavoidable. I believe this is the perfect storm that God has created... God is creating a perfect storm in the earth right now, to provide the kinds of situations that cause the body of Christ to come to our knees and wake up to reality. And not sleep through what is going on. Is the enemy using the storms that are coming? Yes. But God is creating the perfect storm.

And I saw that we had stepped into the storm and it was full of famine and drought, pestilence, disease. There were people that were beginning to crack under the pressure of financial stress, emotional stress, physical stress. I saw believers cracking under anxiety, fear, panic, doubt, unbelief. But there was suddenly a remnant of people in the darkness, in the midst of the pressure, they fell to their knees and they looked to God. That was their response. They realized "I am not a self sustainable person". They needed something greater. God’s arm came from heaven and stamped their forehead with Matthew 6:33.

Matt 6:28-34

"So why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field , how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; 29 and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 30 Now if God so clothes the grass of the field , which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? 31 "Therefore do not worry, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'What shall we wear?' 32 For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. 33 But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.

As they began to stand up after being stamped and marked by the Lord, they were glowing with light. Where before their light was not shining, now their light was shining. They were glowing with light and they became ones who in the midst of an impossible situation, the realm of the impossible of all things ARE possible was made available to them. And their light became very much needed substance and sustenance for the world at that time.”

Urgent praise request...........

The night before last I went to see Phil in the hospital. It was a very frightening sight, he was out of his mind, and acting like someone deranged, agitated and just 'weird'.The staff had put him in a single ward, because he had pulled out all his pipes and torn his head brace off in his highly agitated state.. It took me all I had not to run out the room. It was hard for me to believe that he would not die of his head injury.

Yesterday morning the Lord told me I was to trust him, and to use my authority against the enemy to protect Phil in this vulnerable state. When I went to see Phil he was quiet, sat up and in a much calmer state, although he hardly recognised me. I shut the doors and prayed with him. Last night I went to see him again and this time he looked straight at me and said "Hey up Sis". That was a big step forward. He has now been taken to Sheffield where he will be able to be treated with more update technologies.

Thank you for standing with me.
