An invitation to rest

My child, do not become frustrated when I continue to say to you, ‘Rest’. For just as the lion spends much of his day resting in preparation for short and intensive bursts of activity, so I am encouraging you to discover rest in Me. Yes, this can be rest in activity but, in addition, I […]

Remain in me

This is a time to remain in me and not a time to turn away – even if it may have seemed like it has been a season of dryness over your life. Be assured that, although all on the surface may seem dry and dead, underneath there is an amazing transformation happening. Your roots are going […]

He will sustain these small beginnings

Renewal

I say, look to me – am I not the one who creates, who gives and brings life where there is death? […]
