Depart, depart…

“Leave, leave, go out from there! Do not touch anything unclean; go out from her, purify yourselves, you who carry the vessels of the Lord. For you will not leave in a hurry, and you will not have to take flight; because the Lord is going before you, and the God of Israel is your …

Sharpening my pencil

The Lord God has given me the tongue of the learned, that I may know how to sustain him who is weary with a word; He awakens me morning by morning; He awakens my ear to listen as the learned. Isaiah 50:4 No, its not an excuse or even a validation for my writings, but …

A tribute to the Brave

I need to get it off my chest today and I really really hope you walk with me trough my writing, emphasising the word BRAVE that I needed to add to my reflection. I even thought of making it an Open Letter, a public statement so it could reflect the Habakuk 2 running with the …

FAMILY IS THE NEW WAVE

by Nate Johnston The days of building empires are over.. There is no more juice left in that wineskin. The grace period to keep prioritizing bricks and mortar over sons and daughters is over.  The heart of God is brooding over family and if you are looking for what God’s pulse is on right now …

The Reward…

And this is the reward…  The thought that came to mind while watching the picture of our beautiful 3 generational tribe! When all you know is that we just left as if we didn’t care, I can honestly tell you that leaving has been the hardest part of life while staying would be so obvious. …

In closing of the Year 2021

Was thinking what my last post of the year 2021 would be and then this speech of Dr. Vernon Coleman dropped into my mailbox. Was listening to him as I highly value the insights of this "Old Man in a Chair", of course fuelled by my perspective on the world's events in the past few …

When the heart sings unbidden…

It showed up, this post from December 2017, 4 years ago and I still know the moment the thoughts dropped into my heart while driving from our little village to the City. That morning I had read the words of C.S. Lewis in a devotional. And on that drive to the City, the longing for …

When You’re Overwhelmed by the News

By Tré Goins-Phillips Social media can be great; it provides a bridge to people with whom we might otherwise rarely — if ever — connect. As believers, it can also give us access to specific details, so that our prayers can be more attuned to the myriad needs that exist in the world. But if ever …

Prophesy to Plunder

By Lisa Great Since the new year 5782 has begun, the prophets have begun to speak what they hear God saying about this new year. I was listening to Hank Kunneman yesterday on Elijah Streams and he spoke about how in 2020 the prophets were all saying, 2 Chronicles 20:20 “They rose early in the …

“Verba volant, Scripta manent”

Library of the Frauenklinik in der Maistraße, Munich Yep, it's Latin... and literally translated, it means "Spoken words fly away, Written words remain". Since my platform of audience decreased some months ago as I left the social media platform, it has been a straight forward challenge since the flow of words didn't stop by leaving …

What’s your Source of Information?

You don’t know what you are missing when you don’t know what they keep from you! Although “idiots” is the word I’ve used (too) often in 2020, I still go for the word IGNORANCE as word of the year 2020.But, I n silencing of the voices, they always miscalculate the insight beyond information, the seeing …

Its a journey

In the moments of conversation and (re)connection, I can really say that our hearts are rejoicing about the beauty and significance of the way we see Him working. As I took the month of November to sit at my fireplace outside every day from 17.00 till 18.00, it was mainly to “see” Him clear (as …

So I left

Leaving the Town square Has been quite an experience, leaving the “town square” called social media, the place where we met and talked and shared. The place also where we peaked into each others life and secretly observed from a distance. It was crowded and intense to be amongst and follow the talk, the exploration …

When the time is set

“Leave the nest because you are hurting the others.” Never forget that moment as I was struggling in my resistance to what I sensed as unfair and misdirection. I hate it to observe injustice, hypocrisy, ignorance or any other misacting or misunderstanding around me. It was in the early 90ties while much was happening in …

It’s Time for the Church to Have a Voice

– Nathan Shaw Pentecost gave the Church a voice. The voice had authority. The voice penetrated to the heart of Jerusalem (Acts 5:28, 6:7). People had two options: hear the voice or resist the voice. There was no force or manipulative coercion. Each person had to make their own free will decision. Those who responded …

Fatherhood and Answers

Fatherhood does not give the answers, but it carries the question, so it can rest, develop and come to existence! If you ever wonder why there comes no (direct) answers from The Father on your questions, be sure that He carries that question (as a womb), so it can rest, develop and come to existence! …
