Jesus never lets go of our hand

I lost my job a year ago and I thought this was God’s way of telling me to “do my own thing, you always wanted to”.  I got off and did my own thing. It was tough and I’ve used all the extra money I had. By the end of July last year I had […]

The light above me

My husband and I have been married for 49 years when he was taken away from me.  He suffered a year and three months from cancer. He suffered a lot. Seeing his misery I felt very sorry for him. I mourned while he was still alive. He never saw me crying because I did not […]

Your Word is my life

In October 1979 I saw in a dream how God came on the clouds and took some of my loved ones with Him up to heaven, but I stayed behind and ran after them, shouting, “What about me, Lord? You forgot about me.” I will never forget the voice that told me, “Go away, I […]

During July 2017 I started feeling uneasy about my chest. At the age of 60 I still played action netball and I thought the pain was because of a bump against my chest. I then told myself that the stabbing pains I got were because of an injury but I became more and more anxious. […]

Wait and see

Sunday night at bedtime my sun of almost 8 wanted to know what our bodies will look like in heaven. I told him that we aren’t sure, maybe like angels, but Jesus said that it will be beautiful new bodies. A few seconds later he said: “I just asked Jesus and He says: Wait and […]

Rich in every way

When I was a matric girl during 1969, Uncle Attie’s bedtime stories made a huge impact on my life. We lived in Windhoek. I collected tins of food and clothes and left it at poor people’s doors with the message: “With love, from Jesus”. I then knocked and ran away. Uncle Attie taught me to […]

A living God at work

Just want to say that the Lord’s mercy is unfathomable and it is awesome to serve a living God. I think that we often don’t realise that when we have surrendered something to the Lord we have to leave it to Him and trust Him with our lives. I think my son, Henry’s struggle with […]
