It really is a key to the Kingdom!

I’m referring to discipleship – true, authentic discipleship!  Iron sharpening iron.  Contending for truth together. It is a key to our walk with Him. It is a key to growth. It is a key to learning. It is a key to love.

God has brought some incredible people into my life, and as we meet together regularly and openly, there is life. It is not about agreeing, it is about contending, sharing, loving, praying and walking. I am actually gob-smacked at how much life there is to be found here. There is such a depth of growth.

Noah moment or Jonah moment?

Lets just begin by saying … I know I am not Noah – i.e. God has not said “hey Naggie, I have seen you and you are the only one that I have found righteous“.  No, no, no … that is not what I have heard 🙂

The reason for this post is to share with you what God has been talking to me about over the last little while.  And to possibly help in those decision making moments that we all face … when we hear and either obey, or disobey.

God has been showing me, every time He talks to me about something, I have a decision to make, to hear and obey, no matter what the cost, that is, to have a Noah moment!”  Or to hear and disobey and walk the other direction, that is, to have a Jonah moment!Continue reading

Struggling …

As I sit here this morning pondering all that He is downloading on me and all that He is calling me into … It seems so easy not to listen, not to change, not to be set apart.

Right now, being set apart feels like a battle, not a battle of His will versus mine, but of my flesh versus my spirit!  I really don’t want to stand apart in this world, because that brings unnecessary attention, and seems really hard! I want to hide under a rock and not come out so that no one asks what He is doing. Because what He is doing in me looks really different to the world around me.  Continue reading

Visual learner.

God often talks to me in pictures. He knows I am a visual learner.  He knows, because He created me that way!

The picture He gave me a little while back, that I feel Him asking me to share is this …

He showed me visually a way I could grasp what He meant when He says eternal anchoring. Continue reading

What is church?

We are the church … Right?  The Bride of Christ.

So if we are the church … Then what are Sundays all about?

I am all for corporate gatherings, corporate singing, fellowship, learning, sharing etc … But have we possibly lost sight of what the bible would determine is church? Continue reading

Eternal anchoring.

So, as we sat together as a family this morning singing, praising, praying and spending time in His presence … this song came on …

“Blessings”

We pray for blessings, we pray for peace
Comfort for family, protection while we sleep
We pray for healing, for prosperity
We pray for Your mighty hand to ease our suffering
And all the while, You hear each spoken need
Yet love us way too much to give us lesser things Continue reading

What separates us?

A couple of weeks ago this is the question God whispered to me … And even since it has been a ‘shout out’ from every corner!

The question “what separates us?” has almost haunted me.  It keeps me up at night.  It has been preached everywhere.  It has been the topic of conversation in many places (and not always started by me lol).

So I have been meditating on it, praying on it, and most importantly, I have been seeking Him on it! Continue reading
