Receiving Gifts

Over the Christmas period Holy Spirit was talking to me and teaching me about gifts. 

As any mother I wanted to give good gifts to my children. I wanted them to like them and appreciate them and enjoy them. I wanted maximum happiness for them. Thankfully this year I achieved it for all 3 girls. It blesses me and puts a smile on my face. 



On Boxing Day evening after all the seasons gift giving had been done. While we were settling down for the night after a big week of family time and festivities, I heard in my heart Father likes to give good gifts too. 

I was listening and pondering on that thought. Of course Abba Father likes to give good gifts to his children. He is after all a good good Father! 

But like any good gift if we don't use it or if we forget about it, there cannot be maximum happiness for the giver or receiver. 

As a mother I was abundantly blessed knowing that I had done well in choosing the right gift for each child, then again seeing them surprised and happy when it was first unwrapped and once more when I got to see them enjoy it while it was being used. 

It is the same for Father God. He is blessed when we use His gifts for us. 

And we are blessed when our good good Heavenly Father gives us a spiritual gift. 

Spiritual gifts... 

1 Corinthians 12:4-11 
There are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit. There are differences of ministries, but the same Lord. And there are diversities of activities, but it is the same God who works all in all. But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one for the profit of all: for to one is given the word of wisdom through the Spirit, to another the word of knowledge through the same Spirit, to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healings by the same Spirit, to another the working of miracles, to another prophecy, to another discerning of spirits, to another different kinds of tongues, to another the interpretation of tongues. But one and the same Spirit works all these things, distributing to each one individually as He wills. 

What spiritual gifts do you have? What do you have the privilege of receiving and using by the Spirit? 

As I was pondering a thought came to me I have the gift of prayer and intercession. As soon as the thought came I tried to dismiss it in my mind. I tried to water it down. In my mind I said 'no it's not a gift of intercession. I just like to pray. I'm not that good.' 

Then Holy Spirit stopped me and told me... It is a gift. It is a very good gift. But it can be an even better gift if I use it more. 

Tip: don't allow a seed of doubt or fear to rob you of your gift. 

Is there a spiritual gift in your life that could be dusted off? Let's dust off our spiritual gifts ready for the New Year and get ready now to be fully blessed and to be a blessing to others. 

I wonder how different our world would be if we used what God has given to us.

Feast of Trumpets

Hello everyone. 

I want to share with you my understanding of the feast of trumpets. I know that it is not common among most Christians to observe or celebrate the feasts. In fact it's quite new to me. This time last year I would have had to google it. But now, you could say I have delved right into it. Holy Spirit revealed to me it's importance and I really felt led to observe the feast this year. 

So let me share with you what I've learnt... 

Scripture tells us that everything in the Bible points to our Messiah, Yeshua (Jesus). The seven feasts are apart of that. 

Romans 10:4 says
For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes. 

Let me write it again substituting one word... 

For Christ is the telos of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes. 

The Greek word telos means “the point aimed at” or “the goal.” Just as a telescope points us to the stars, the Law was given so that we would be pointed to Him. 

Luke 24:44 
Then he said to them, “These are my words that I spoke to you while I was still with you, that everything written about me in the Law of Moses and the Prophets and the Psalms must be fulfilled.” 

John 5:46
For if you believed Moses, you would believe me; for he wrote of me. 

So if Jesus said he must fulfil the law of Moses, the prophets and the psalms. What did Moses say... 

The Law of Moses, the books of Torah, tell us about some special days in God’s calendar, days when He wants to meet with us. They are known as feasts. You can find all of the feasts mentioned in Leviticus 23, but they are also mentioned in hundreds of other places, in both the Old and New Testaments! 

These feasts are days that God has chosen and instructed us to follow. They are special God appointed times. A time that He wants to meet with us! 

That brings us to today... 

Leviticus 23:23-25
And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, “Speak to the people of Israel, saying, In the seventh month, on the first day of the month, you shall observe a day of solemn rest, a memorial proclaimed with blast of trumpets, a holy convocation. You shall not do any ordinary work, and you shall present a food offering to the Lord.” 

Of all the feasts listed; the feast of trumpets - the day of blowing, is explained the least. But what we do know is this: 

1. God wants to meet with us! 
This should come as no surprise. Right from the very beginning God has wanted to have a relationship with us. 

Scripture says He delights Himself in us. He loves us. He sent His only son to die for us. He desires for us to spend time with Him. 

2. God wants to get our attention! 
Hence the trumpets. Trumpets are loud and they command attention. People look to see what the noise is about. 

The trumpet used by the Israelites is a rams horn also known as a shofar. 

In the Bible there are a number of specific and important reasons a trumpet/shofar would sound. 

A trumpet was used to: 
- Call Moses up the mountain 
- Call the congregation to war 
- At the start of a jubilee year 
- At the coronation service of a new king of Israel
- To regather the disbursed of Israel 
- A warning of danger 
- The coming of the Messiah 

The last one is of most importance to us today; the coming of the Messiah; as we await the day that we will hear the trumpet and go up to meet Him in the air. 

That brings me to:

3. This feast has a prophetic edge to it and it is yet to be fulfilled... 

What does that mean? 
It means that if you look into all of the 7 God appointed feasts or holy days as they are in the book of Leviticus; each one has been or will be fulfilled by Christ. 

In Matt 5:17-18 Yeshua said: 
Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. For truly, I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not an iota, not a dot, will pass from the Law until all is accomplished. 

Four feasts have already been fulfilled by Christ. There are only 3 left. The feast of trumpets is the next one to be fulfilled. 

The Feast of Trumpets is symbolic of the announcement of the start of the second coming of Yeshua the Messiah. 

1 Thess 4:16-18 says
For the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a cry of command, with the voice of an archangel, and with the sound of the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive, who are left, will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we will always be with the Lord. Therefore encourage one another with these words.

Each year the feast of trumpets is a good reminder for us... It is a time to remember and know that Yeshua is coming back again soon. It is a time to be excited and to celebrate because we will soon get to meet Him face to face. Our Lord and Saviour is coming back. Hallelujah!!! 

So let's worship God our Father today with everything within us and expect to meet with Him. 

Psalm 100:1-5 
Make a joyful noise to the LORD, all the earth!
Serve the LORD with gladness!
Come into his presence with singing!
Know that the LORD, he is God!
It is he who made us, and we are his;
we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.
Enter his gates with thanksgiving,
and his courts with praise!
Give thanks to him; bless his name!
For the LORD is good;
his steadfast love endures forever,
and his faithfulness to all generations.

End Time Happenings

Hi all, 

Please allow me share what Holy Spirit has been showing me recently. Some of it seems so simple (it's like duh) but other bits are shocking! ... 

Things are about to get more crazy than we can imagine. We are in the last days. Between now and mid December big things are going to happen. Make sure you are right with God. Let me say that again... MAKE SURE YOU ARE RIGHT WITH GOD. Read your Bible. Pray for the lost everyday. Take steps of faith and be led by Holy Spirit. 

These are the things I'm learning and hearing about... 

1. Jesus is coming very soon for His bride. 

2. Once saved always saved is a false statement. We must continually repent of our sins and grow in God. 

3. The entire Bible is a script of a Hebrew wedding. 

4. God has a prophetic calendar. God appointed Feasts - appointments that He will keep. The rapture of Gods people will happen during the Feast of Trumpets. Which day during the 2 day feast and which year I don't know. No one knows. 

5. The 2016 American Presidential election will most likely be suspended and martial law will take place in the USA. 

6. The person of the antichrist will be revealed soon. 

7. The new world order and a global economy is already in place. I have a good YouTube link for that. It was announced by Obama himself in a press conference. 

8. Most of the church as we know it will not be raptured. A lot of people are going to church for something to do, tradition, to please others, or because they feel that's what should be done. A lot of churched people have lost their love for God. 

9. Persecution is upon us. And we must face it. It's not avoidable. We should expect it. Christ suffered, so must we. 

10. We must do everything according to the Word of God. Over time things have been overlooked, forgotten or even stamped out by leaders. If you don't know what's right or wrong, read your Bible. 

For me it's all very exciting! And the more I spend time reading the Word and in prayer the more I learn and the more hungry and thirsty I get. It's more-ish. God is my daily bread.

Silver

A dear sister in Christ sent this to me and it is so worth sharing...

There was a group of women in a Bible study on the book of Malachi. As they were studying chapter three they came across verse three which says, "He will sit as a refiner and purifier of silver." This verse puzzled the women and they wondered what this statement meant about the character and nature of God. 

One of the women offered to find out about the process of refining silver and get back to the group at their next Bible study. That week the woman called up a silversmith and made an appointment to watch him at work. She didn't mention anything about the reason for her interest in silver beyond her curiosity about the 
process of refining silver. As she watched the silversmith, he held a piece of silver over the fire and let it heat up. He explained that, in refining silver, one needed to hold the silver in the middle of 
the fire where the flames were hottest so as to burn away all the impurities. 

The woman thought about God holding us in such a hot spot - then she thought again about the verse, that He sits as a refiner and purifier of silver. She asked the silversmith if it was true that he had to sit there in front of the fire the whole time the silver was being refined. The man answered that yes, he not only had 
to sit there holding the silver, but he had to keep his eyes on the silver the entire time it was in the fire. For if the silver was 
left even a moment too long in the flames, it would be destroyed. 

The woman was silent for a moment. Then she asked the silversmith, "How do you know when the silver is fully refined?"  
He smiled at her and answered, "Oh, that's the easy part -- when I see my image reflected in it." 

If today you are feeling the heat of the fire, remember that God has His eye on you and will keep His hand on you and watch over you until He sees His image in you.

The writing on the wall

Read all of Daniel chapter 5 

But in summary the King of Babylon, King Belshazzar made a great feast with lots of people in attendance. During the feast the fingers of a male hand appeared and wrote on the wall in the palace. The King saw the hand and the writing and he was troubled and his countenance changed. His guests also were astonished. 

But they did not know what the writing on the wall meant! 

Because of his reputation and a recommendation Daniel was brought before the King to give the interpretation of the writing on the wall. And Daniel gave the interpretation. 

So this is what I have to share...

A time is upon us where it will no longer be that sometimes bad things just happen or we have to face a difficult situation for a poor choice. 

The time is upon us now when end time Biblical prophecy will take place. God's judgement - the consequence of unrepented sin will be troubling. Peoples countenance will change. It will be astonishing. They will not understand what is happening. It will be confusing. 

The people will need an interpretation. But is there a man (or woman) like Daniel in whom is the Spirit of the Holy God. Someone who has light and understanding and wisdom. 

It also goes on to say someone who has an excellent spirit, knowledge, understanding, interpreting dreams, solving riddles and explaining enigmas. 

Almighty God is calling true believers to be like Daniel. For when something that is troubling and astonishing takes place in this world to stand up and give the interpretation and then share the good news of salvation through Jesus Christ. 

End time Bible prophecy is confronting, and a lot of bad stuff happens. The tribulation, wars and rumours of wars, famine, earthquakes, the new world order, the mark of the beast, etc. 

Our time is here. You were born for such a time as this. Will you be a Daniel in the world today? 

Will you read the writing on the wall and interpret it. 

Note: people won't always like or believe what you have to say.

New World Order

This is a one minute clip of a press conference Obama gave in July 2016 telling people that there is already in place a one world economy and one/new world order in place. 

https://youtu.be/1c95zQ2Kvmo 

And this one Obama spoke in 2014 to the UN about people needing a a great sovereign. 

https://youtu.be/IYH75mTrQDA 

People I am sharing this with you because I believe that God has set me as a watchmen to the people I know and love. 

What is a watchmen? In the Old Testament days of the Bible a watchmen was someone who sat and watched at the border of a city day and night looking for something that might happen. If there was trouble nearby he would sound the alarm so that the city could prepare and go to battle if need be. 

God has also given some people the position of a spiritual watchmen. Someone to watch the times and seasons. To know the trouble coming ahead for the now AD (after Christ's death) to warn His people. 

Ezekiel 3:17 
17 “Son of man, I have made you a watchman for the house of Israel; therefore hear a word from My mouth, and give them warning from Me:

Not for us to be afraid but for us to prepare ourselves spiritually ready for spiritual battle, bible prophecy or the rapture. 

The new world order and one world currency is in place. It's done. And Obama is just waiting for the right time to roll it out. 

The spirit of the antichrist is alive and rampant in the world but I believe will be seen in the flesh embodiment very soon in the shape of the Antichrist as foretold in the book of Revelation at the back of the Bible. 

Based on Gods prophetic calendar (the annual fall feasts coming up), the patterns of a Hebrew wedding, what Holy Spirit has revealed to me and combined with all that is happening around the world, I am telling you as a watchmen - I am sounding the alarm - to prepare yourself. 

Make sure you are right with God. That's the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. 
Re dedicate your life to Jesus Christ (Gods one and only Son) and ask for forgiveness of your sins. If you have never given your life to Jesus Christ by making Him your Lord (Master) and Saviour do so now. You can do this by praying a prayer like the one below. 



There is no other way you can be saved. Jesus said I am the way the truth and the life no one comes to the Father (that's God) except through me. 

He, Jesus Christ is the only one who has paid the price for sin. He died on a cross as a sacrifice for all sinners. Confess your sin. Repent and believe in Him.

Praise the Lord

Highlights of my day: 

1. My daughter Isabelle (age 4) gave her life to Jesus this morning. 

2. Isabelle had a dislocated knee today. God healed it! Popped it back in place as I and a sister in Christ prayed for it. I felt it move. 

Praise the Lord 😊🎉👏💗🙌

A new tongue

You will never guess what happened yesterday. Ooh it's so exciting!! 

It was around 7.30 in the morning we were all up and finished breakfast. Robbie had just left for work. I had worship music on in the background and the girls were all happy doing their own thing. 

I was pottering around; clearing the breakfast dishes, tidying the lounge etc. I had noticed while pottering that Olivia was really listening to the words of the music. Izzy was also nearby and in their own way they were both worshiping. It melts my heart to watch them connecting with their Heavenly Father. 

Then Olivia asked me something about that 'other language' I have. I knew she was meaning my spiritual tongue. It has been an interest to them both recently. Isabelle has even been trying to copy it. 
Anyway the conversation continued and Olivia said 'I want that'. I was right there saying ok let's pray for it. I put my hand on her head and also on Izzy's who was already trying to pray while speaking her made up tongue (she's so cute!). 

I prayed for Holy Spirt to baptise them. To fill them up to overflowing. I asked for them to receive a tongue. I prayed for them to be anointed in the name of Jesus Christ. 

While I was praying - not yet done Olivia had received the tongue and was off and running so to speak. I heard it just click. She was filled with His joy too! She was beaming with a huge smile on her face. There is nothing like God. He is so good! 

And so just like that she was praying in tongues. My biggest little girl got baptised in the Spirit at age 5, while in her pjs, in our less than tidy lounge room and all before 8am. 

Thank you Lord. I give you all the praise and glory. 

She's told a couple of people since then about what happened and always uses this one phrase to explain that first moment: 'I was caught up'. How precious! 

I thank God that I got to witness another special moment in her walk with Him. 

Acts 2:4 All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them.

Acts 19:6 When Paul placed his hands on them, the Holy Spirit came on them, and they spoke in tongues and prophesied.

A miracle

God has been watching over our family of late. Within the period of just 4 weeks we have seen in our immediate family not 1 but 2 miracles!! 

Last week just as we had finished our family bible time before the girls go to bed something totally unexpected happened. 

Usually our night routine consists of: 
Family dinner 
Kids devotions 
Small quiet play 
Put pjs on
Toilet 
Teeth
Family Bible time 
Bed

However this one had a little something extra... 

We had just finished doing family Bible time in the girls room and Olivia had already been tucked into bed with hugs and kisses. She sleeps on the bottom of the bunk. 

Next was Isabelle she was just about to be tucked in. She kinda plonked her self down and... 

The whole bunk cracked. The top of the bunks frame broke and tore apart. As a result the slats holding up the mattress broke too. The slats fell, the mattress fell, part of the frame fell and Isabelle fell. All on top of Olivia. 

My mummy instincts kicked in! I spread my legs to block a nearby Esther from getting nearer the action making sure she was out of the risk zone and simultaneously I grabbed Isabelle by the ankle as she was sliding/falling with the mattress.While dangling her mid air from the ankle I yelled to hubby with my tone of hurry up and help!! He had only left the room 2 mins earlier. 

When dear hubby entered the room he's staring at me like put Isabelle down (because she was still dangling upside down) and where's Olivia?! 

I answered his silent question, quick the bunk bed broke and Olivia is trapped. 
Poor darling sweet Olivia was crying and trapped under a mountain of mattress and wood. 

Robbie rescued her and to our utter amazement she had only one very small scratch on her cheek. It was a miracle. 
It's hard to explain the disaster I saw. But there were 6 wooden slats all broken which now had jagged and pointed edges. Sharp bits, sharp bits everywhere!! The area the sharp bits covered were her face, throat, chest and stomach regions. She should have been impaled at least once. 

We choose to believe that God commanded His angels to watch over and protect her. 

Psalm 91:11 
For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways. 

This bunk should not have broke. It was 15 months new! And it only had a 15kg child on top. Isabelle although plonked did not (and does not usually) jump on the bed. 

It was made of solid pine wood and painted white. Under the pretty white paint were two big natural wood knots. We didn't know they were there and they just gave. It was an accident waiting to happen. But Praise the Lord He is good and He is faithful. No matter what happens He has our back (and in this case our front). Thank you Lord!

Debrief

So I'm starting something new. You see I'm in a new season, a very new and unfamiliar place. I'm not sure how to be or how to handle things. I'm trying different things along the way. Ignoring it has not worked! Playing normal is only surface deep. I think I need to write. 

I know I haven't written in a while. I've been meaning to. I just haven't known what to say. How truthful to be. How raw. It's wise to be careful. But at the same time. Honesty and vulnerability have their own solid points. 

A lot has happened this year and we are only up to the beginning of May. This year 2016 is not what I expected at all. So far... 

Our family has moved to a new church where we knew no one and had no positions or reputations. Nothing. 

We started our first darling daughter in school much to my angst (see my last posts). I didn't handle my husbands difference of opinion and final say very well at all. Do not role model me in that! Sorry honey x. 

Then we pulled her out of school. Deep breath. Now I'm homeschooling her for the year. This is entirely another post. 

My husbands best friend passed away tragically. 

We found out we were pregnant with another wee bub. We were all so excited and eager to meet and love little Buddy. 
 
I really miss the sense of strong community we had built at our old church. 

We lost our little Buddy at 12 weeks. 

Somehow wrapped up in losing Buddy my faith is being tested and (better be being) strengthened. It's hard. 

And on top of all that I feel like I'm being attacked personally with regards to my thoughts in my mind. I am continually fighting back and realigning my thoughts with the Word of God. I have a sound mind. I am being transformed by the renewing of my mind. I am safe and secure in my Fathers arms. 

So I'm a bit blah sometimes. A bit displaced. A bit lost. Not sure of anything except the love of my Almighty Father and the blessings he has given to me... My family! 

Through it all I choose to praise Him. To hide myself in Him. To find time for the secret place where I can be in His presence which is so gentle, refreshing and healing. 

And now I write to debrief along the way. Because ignoring it was just forming a mountain that was getting a tinsy bit overwhelming.

Recipe for a storm...

I'm choosing to rejoice in The Lord at all times. Deep breath. I am heart broken. That has not changed. Perhaps intensified. My little girl started school today. Just the thought for more than a second brings a tear to my eye. I dare not think longer than that. 

I am choosing to rejoice in The Lord. My attitude has changed since my last blog post just 5 days ago... 

I abide in Christ and he is my joy and my strength. I will not be swayed in this storm. The battle is not mine but the Lords. I trust Him. He will not fail me. He hears my prayers. I will wait. God will place my husband and I onto the same page either way. He is in control. 

I have been led by Holy Spirit to find my own kind of coping system till then... 

If you're going through a storm try this. It's working for me. 

1. Praying in the Spirit. The Bible says that when we pray in tongues it edifies and encourages us. So that's what I'm doing. Whenever and wherever. 

2. I've found a verse and I'm clinging to it! This is it... 

Psalm 94:19 In the multitude of my anxieties within me,Your comforts delight my soul. 

Reminding myself of it numerous times daily gives me strength. 

3. Praising God. The combination of music and of song to God changes my mindset. It's like distraction but better! 

4. A deep study of The Word. A word study. A theme study. A passage study. Get into it. Go deep. Look at the root words in the Greek or Hebrew. Discover new things. 

That's all I've got for now but I am sustained on my daily bread. And His grace is sufficient for me.

Broken mummy

To post or not to post? That is the question. 

This week I'm deeply troubled, upset, not liking stuff and generally feeling peeved! And all of that is frustrating because: 

1. I don't want to be that way, 
2. I know what the problem is and 
3. I know how to fix it my way. 

But I am married and so my husband has an opinion and gets a say. In this case, the last say. Sigh. 

When my oldest daughter Olivia was two years old I starting hearing about the idea of homeschooling from a good friend of mine. She was seriously looking into and mostly likely going to homeschool her two youngest daughters. She shared her plans and I listened to her about it. I wasn't opposed to the idea. I just thought it wasn't for everyone and that everyone included me. 

At the time I was very motivated to give my children the best and some what expensive (if need be) education. I looked up schools on the web, thought about it, prayed about it, asked around and I even made charts based on what I thought were the pros and cons. So I took it seriously. 

Anyway, Olivia was due to start three year old kinder soon. I was at home with the girls one week day. Doing housework, playing and something dropped into my spirit. Not just a word. It was more it was an idea with the understanding as to why I should homeschool our girls. It was a revelation from Holy Spirit. 

I remember it was so quick and such a dramatic change in thinking for me that I immediately called my friend to share with her. 

From that time onwards, I felt God leading me in that direction. It is certainly what I wanted and what I thought was best for our girls for at least primary school. 

I understand that others have their concerns with homeschooling which seem to revolve around either a) social issues and or b) quality of education. I know because I used to think that way. Whatever! 

I decided kinder was still important and I had no issues sending her to the kinder where we had pre planned. 

But two years on from my revelation and just one week before she turns 5 years old and my baby girl is enrolled and ready to start primary school, prep at a private co-ed Christian school. 

My husband is a school chaplain and a school teacher and he has a differing opinion on homeschooling. He is against it. There's no talking him around (or begging, I've tried). Until God speaks to him a formal school education it is. 

To say that I am devastated is barely the tip of the ice berg. I am so upset, heartbroken and not happy about it. 

I would suggest those who know me in person don't see me and avoid me this week because i'm either a) looking ok and coming across normal but really I'm hiding behind denial but if it's mentioned I'll burst into tears. Or b) I'm seriously grumpy and don't know how to handle my frustration. So I'm generally not nice. I bounce between the two. A. B. A. B. there's no middle ground. 

5 nights to go and school starts! 😝 

I'm trying to suck it up. Forget about it. Trust God. 

I've prayed. I've pleaded with God. I've cried out to Him. O Lord please! 
Nothing. 

So that's where I'm at and I'm so bummed about it I can't think of anything else to write 😔 

Sorry y'all. Xx 

P.S. Her 2nd day of school is her 5th birthday 😢

Be YOU!

Today I want to remind you how important it is to be yourself. 

It seems a simple message but over the years it's something that keeps making an appearance in my life. 

God made us all unique. We have different DNA, different fingerprints, different everything. So why do we try so hard to fit in? Why do we compare ourselves to others? 

If God wanted 20 Christine's he would have made that many. Hello he is God, he can do anything. And yet he chose on purpose and with intent to create us all beautifully and wonderfully different. 

By trying to be someone else we are really just slapping God in the face. Do we know better than He? Since when does an invention correct itself... Is that not for the inventor to do. It is the same with us and God our creator. 

Do not be afraid to be you! God thinks it's very good. In fact he says, you are created in His image (Gen 1:27) and that you are beautifully and wonderfully made (Ps 139:13-14) 

And since there is no other complete copy of you - you need to be it. 

You are a unique, one of a kind pieces that has great value and worth and your creator loves you!

Happy New Year

2016 is here and I'm ready and excited! Three days into it and I'm expectant (no I'm not pregnant :P) but I am very hopeful for good things, breakthrough, blessings and new opportunities. 

2015 was pretty great for my family: we did have challenging times (including two family car accidents and my father being sick) but we also had lots of moving forward and growing. 

And I am getting a sense that it was only the beginning. I am reminded of this verse: 

Isaiah 43:19 
Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert. 

I encourage you to also get excited and be expectant of new and good things. 

Especially if you had a difficult year last year, put it behind you, get stuck into God and His word which is our anchor of hope (Hebrews 6:19) and start to rejoice and pray without ceasing for your situation (1 Thessalonians 5:16-17

Father God loves you and wants good things for you (Jer 29:11-13. I pray His blessings for you. I pray you would know Him deeper!! 

Go now and get excited. Dream big. 

Have fun beautiful one, 
Nat xx
