Falling in love is just such an amazing thing isn’t it?
I have fallen in love with God for no other reason than that he has loved me.
Lovers dream dreams and have visions and the best of these come straight from the heart of God. They help us overcome the obstacles and barriers that are there because of our natural default position:
“Not me…I can’t…it’s always dark…etc. etc. etc.”
When someone shares that dream or vision – well, I can’t begin to tell you what it means to me. But let’s take a bit of a punt at it:
1 God loves me enough to have others think about me when I’m not there
2 He loves me enough to wrap his love in something as tangible as another human being
3 He gives me hope that I will do things that I felt in the deep parts of me – the plans I felt he has for me
4 Then I see more clearly that he not only gave me dreams, but sometimes despite me, or in spite of me, he will see them fulfilled in me.
Go dream!

On Sunday we sang a new song during our worship time, a song called Cast My Cares by the amazing Tim Timmons. (If you don’t know his music and story I would highly recommend checking them out!)   In the week I came across Psalm 55:22, which says “Cast your cares on the Lord and He […]

Morning All, Monday 16th January, 2017 How I love the “tap tap” of God! He aims and puts two shots of his love into the target almost without drawing breath. The story of my life since April of last year has been “tap tap”…”Tap tap.” In April, twice I had people speak to me of […]
