Fireworks in the desert

I know people speak about "a dessert season" in their spiritual life, I did not think I would ever experience it and now that I am in that season I even thought it would be different, bad in a way.Let me put it like this.In a dessert everything looks the same. Every sand hill looks like the one you just passed. The sun and heat is so unbearing that you don't feel anything after a while. After a few hours you just stumble around and fall short not knowing what you are doing.With me I have a few stars to guide the way. And it feels like I am even appropriately dressed for this. You know real dessert cloths, truth, righteousness,love,Fear has no hold on me because I know I was called to this dessert and that He who has called me will never take a step backwards when I am moving in His direction.My dessert has an oasis. The key to the door is red, shaped in the form of prayer. The best way to the door is a 100 steps up and then to your left. It's not like the living water kind of vibes though. More just like drops of heaven falling on you to keep you going.It's not a bad season its just like I misplaced my overflowing cup and lost my song. I am learning here guys! I will appreciate his tangible present more. I am learning how to run with perseverance even though my lips are dried out and I have blisters on my feet after the last thousand kilometers I just roamed.I get to meet people along the way some of them have their overflowing cups with them and others don't even have a cup yet. I love both types of fellow dessert dwellers.I sometimes get these thoughts on "where is He? Where is my living water and my daily bread? Why can I not find Him" Just to find my helmet of righteousness, protecting my thoughts, is falling off because of the sweat rolling down my brow. It's like a sickness I am sweating out. Getting rid of all baggage and extra weight .But through all of this I get to witness fireworks in people who recieve cups for the first time. In a dessert. Far from what I know.#

I'll spread my wings and I'll learn how to fly

Sometimes the birds need to leave the nest, well not just sometimes. It is a given. Birds are bound to fly, soar and poop on people to make their day interesting. Jeffrey's is like a nest for me, not in a passive "safe" way, it was just the place where I could grow and now it's time for them to kick me out of the nest. Flying, doing what I was called for and learning how to use what is given to me, like my wings. Leaving a birth place, the place where missions was born in me, is difficult sometimes but I know staying will turn into a comfort zone. Ain't nobody got time for that. Experts say that birds have excellent memory. I will never forget you guys. I was challenged and molded in this time. But I was not only surrounded with the arms of my Father but also with great amazing birds... eagles, that have flown all over the world and around my heart. You can take the bird out of the nest but you can never take the nest out of the bird. I do not think that I could ever make such a big impact on them like they did on me. Jeffreys Bay's Nest - topia was a journey that I am so thankful for. Was it hard? Yes. Did I want to go home? More then once. Did I make friends? No I made family. Abba really romanced me, and whispered His truth and love into my heart. He told me who I am, what I was made for and that I am adopted into His care. The ransom was paid for me. He equipped me and once again took me to a place where I needed to die to self, again and again and then serve. Sometimes it felt like a cutting of the wings when it was more like a grooming, exercising and growing process. I am thankful for this nest this journey and that I felt like I belonged. A bird always returns to its nest. See you soon  Jbay.#

Thought on fasting

I can't believe it went by so fast. Last weekend we were at the Bloemfontein prayer meeting where over one MILLION people came together to pray for South Africa. What a amazing experience. You could feel the unity! But it doesn't stop there. We need to become a praying nation. We need to keep praying for our country. Fighting the battle on our knees.

The clouds of identity

God will always meet you at that crossroad... where you are, breaking down feeling unworthy or maybe not, maybe you are even standing there in awe. In wonder of who He is, what you have done and His grace that is just sweeping over in. It does not even matter where you are at, He will meet you there.

I belong.

The past few weeks have been crazy busy, but at the same time a great period of growth and being stretched. I learnt so much and God was just so present, showing me that He is with me no matter what, but it was tough. Here is a little something that sums up what was happening inside.
