Going Deeper

I have a love-hate relationship with winter. I love the coziness of being by the fire, with a blanket and a good book, or movie. I also love the invitation to “wrap up warm,” when I am about to brace myself to go outside. But, I hate feeling the cold – especially when the cold gets “in your bones”, and it takes you an hour to thaw out!

Winter always makes me think of the season we can face. The sparseness, the lack, the “God, where are you? moments” – but it is in these times that I have looked back and realised that I now look forward to this season. Not in a cruel way, but it is a time to go to God in complete surrender, a time to dig into the word, because when we draw closer to God – that is where our strength ultimately comes from.

I have found that when I go deeper, it is in the profound intimacy that I find peace, love, grace, and mercy. My soul is renewed and replenished. I can then find the Holy Spirit’s power to go beyond the human mindset, and tackle wherever life takes me

Friends, it is going deeper that we can go higher. If you think of a seed, it has to create a great root system to grow into a tree. A sky-rise must have a strong foundation to hold the building itself. We must seek God, spend time with Him and His Word to grow into whom we have been called to be.

Go deeper with God.

Don’t be afraid to be vulnerable, because God is waiting for a chance, where you can breathe, as he restores your soul. An opportunity that you will then soar as high as an eagle – just as you were created to be

Let your roots grow down into him, and let your lives be built on him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness.” Colossians‬ ‭2:7‬ ‭

My hearts desire is for everyone to have an intimate relationship with Christ. To hear the voice of God and to experience His presence. Also, to help disciple others to discover their purpose within the body of Christ - through the power of the Holy Spirit.

My God-given dream is to break down barriers within life and the Church as a whole to strengthen and develop relationships within every denomination and bring unity - so that we will collectively raise up together and fulfil the Great Commission, within this lifetime.

I am living proof that no matter what your past was or whatever your life has become - God will use you to fulfil what He created you to do, when you step out in obedience and faith.
