THE LOSS OF HUMANITY

Something is weighing heavy on my heart… There is something very sinister and evil, quietly, but gradually spreading…just like a cancer and more deadly than any virus. It is something so seemingly innocent, yet it was the cause of Mankind’s downfall in the Garden of Eden. It is something so subtle; we become justified in …

I was walking along and came across a beautiful grassy area with tables and chairs set up, some folk sitting and resting, others milling around.

We were part of a group of five airplanes, meeting up with a larger crowd at our final destination which was a pan in the Kalahari right near the Namibian border.

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”. (https://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.
