DAY 7: SHAMA

Today’s word from the Lord is ‘SHAMA’. Shama means to listen and obey. When God first told me to set aside 7 days to do this blog, He started by reminding me of the dreams I mention in my post titled “Snakes in Boots”. (http://sparklingforest.co.za/snakes-in-boots/) In those dreams, He warned me of the coming storms …

DAY 6: POMEGRANATES OR APPLES?

Today I was reminded of a vision I had during worship one day: In the vision I saw an angel standing in the front of the church holding a large fruit in his hands. In my spirit in knew that he was holding a pomegranate, but to my natural eyes it looked like a big …

Day 5: NOTHING IS TOO HARD FOR ME

Today, I heard God say, “Nothing is too hard for Me“. He led me to share this excerpt from ‘the 30 Day Praise Challenge’ by Becky Harling: ‘I am never shocked, surprised, or caught off guard. I know there are moments in your life when circumstances feel impossible, when you cannot see any solutions to …

DAY 4: COME AWAY WITH ME

Today I have the Norah Jones song, “Come Away with Me” in my head. I can’t think when last I heard that song, but God often uses it to speak to me! Today He says: “Therefore I will block her path with thornbushes; I will wall her in so that she cannot find her way.  She …

DAY 3: WASH HANDS (and heart)

‘My people are diligently washing their hands, but they don’t ask Me to wash them and cleanse them from their filthiness (and brokenness) so that they can enter into my presence with clean hands and pure heart.’ For a while, God has been speaking to me about His desire for His people to have a …

Day 2: YOUR LIGHT WITHIN

Last night my four-year old daughter and I went to the room to read the bedtime story, but the light was off. Usually, she would be hesitant to walk into the room until the light was switched on for her. However, on this evening, she didn’t. As she entered the dark room, she said, “Look mommy, …

DAY 1: GET HUNGRY!

This morning the Lord reminded me of a vivid vision He gave me during a time of worship while I was living in China. Although it was a word given long ago, He said it was relevant for many people at this time.  In the vision I saw a very long, ornate dining table beautifully set in a large banqueting hall. …

Release your Song

I recently watched a You Tube video titled, “Do GMO plants sing?” https://youtu.be/L4CONoyIMaw It was a fascinating study done by Alexandra Christ to determine whether or not GMO plants “sing” or make music, as non-GMO plants appear to do. This article is not to debate whether or not plants do or don’t in fact sing, …

Crumbs or Cake?

Quite a few years ago during a time of worship the Lord showed me the following vision: I saw a magnificent wedding scene. The hall was decked out in such beauty and splendour as only a wedding could allow. Aside from all the finery of flowers, candlelight, drapery and such, my eyes were drawn to …

Sweet Peas and Sparrows

While doing a year with Y.W.A.M (Youth with a Mission) in Hong Kong, I lived in an 800 year old Chinese village. Each morning we would have a mandatory “quiet time” for an hour. I would often love to sneak out of the Y.W.A.M base and walk to a spot in the countryside where I …
