He Calls my Name

With eyes burning, he calls my name. And I step forward.

I accept his gift. A scroll – a commission.

I bow down so low that my face nearly touches the floor.

He puts His hand on my head and says, “Go now my child –

you are healed”.

But I don’t want to leave his presence. The peace I experience is so wonderful, so tangible and real. I never want to let it go.

When I get up, He is gone. But the peace remains.

When the Lion Roars

Africa rising.

The lion stirs,


A rumbling deep within.

Waiting for the call of the others.


He is feared.

But he has no fear.

He is waiting.

But knows the time is soon.

For when the lion roars.

Everything stands still.

As I walked through the Throne Room, I noticed immediately how thick the walls were. Thick stone, and very strong. An old Medieval castle. Down the walls on each side were stone lamp stands, each burning with fire. There were guards down each side as well in full suits of armour. I walked up the central aisle towards a staircase which led up to a throne. Thick stone steps. And the King came down towards me. I was also suited in armour. Inside the armour was what appeared to be like wings, as colourful as a butterfly’s.

I asked the King where Jesus was and he indicated a thick door to His left. I went to the door and opened it. I walked inside to a large workroom where Jesus was busy working on a large wooden table. He was sanding and carving the edges. I noticed how strong Jesus was, and he was sweaty from working hard on the table. It was to be a table for the Feast.

As I worshiped, I looked up and saw his eyes and they were like fire.

Dance in the fire

I am currently doing the Whoop UP at WHPS school and I understand why God wants to instill a peaceful rock in my soul. Dancing/performing has an overwhelming effect on my life and heart. Dancing meant a lot to me when I was younger. A LOT! And so to dance without having trained or performed in a long time is hard. But more then that are the feelings that surface when I am on stage. When I dance, I want to DANCE. However, I have to bear in mind that this is not a solo role. I need to keep in with everyone else. “God, what am I doing?” I also cannot physically do the moves that are in my head. Yet, I am sure God made me to move.

In the meantime, I must work with God. Keep a still heart. Do everything in an orderly way. Keep peace. And I know I will be able to dance from a more solid base. Dancing is from the heart, and so I must keep my heart alive but still. Keep it alight so that when the flames come, it will not consume but rather like God in the burning bush, become very much alive. And yet still!

I want to burn for God. But a beautiful controlled fire that dances and licks the air and warms other hearts. A fire around which people gather and memories are created.

Let my spirit soar again,

To the highest of heights,

And the depths of the sea.

Where peace lives,

And I am free.

Not defeated

I see you.

Wounded, but not defeated.

Tired, yet willing to go on.

You have given your strength for God.

Yet, the strength scriptures are unable to renew your capacity for leading the church forwards.

You desire time,

But are afraid of that time.

Take it – it is yours!

Stand firm and allow my wind to blow on your face.

To encircle you.

Stand firm while I renew your spirit,

Washing away the pain, the hurt,

The burdens you carry.

Let me take them from you.

Your current armour is weakened by the wars you have been through.

I am replacing it.

Reinforced armour for the war ahead…

Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.  (Ephesians 6:10-18)
