About Me

South Africa
My husband, Brett and I live in beautiful South Africa and have been blessed with the most precious family. We have 2 very beautiful and brave daughters, Tianna and Angelee and a very precious little boy called Zac who touched our hearts forever in his 1 day here on earth. We never would have imagined that we would have to live this side of Heaven without our sweet boy who was born with half a heart, but every day Jesus carries us through and is teaching us more than ever how to live, laugh and love fully. A year and a half later, our faithful Great Restorer graciously blessed us once again with another son ... our beloved Gabriel ... a ray of sunshine in all our lives! This blog has been a place where I have been able to journal my journey through loss, hope and choosing to live a life rich in love.

Stepping into a Miracle

Last night as I was drifting off to sleep I began to think about the account in the Bible when Peter walks on water towards Jesus. The guy walked on water!!! Not only Jesus - but Peter too ... even if it was only for a little while ... he was walking in a miracle and Jesus portrays it to be an absolutely normal thing - only requiring faith in Him. 
So often, I need a miracle in my day too and yet as my faith rises to ask God for it, I do the very thing Peter did while he was in his miracle - he looked through fear at his circumstances and stepped right out of his miracle for a moment. The beautiful encouragement is though, that Jesus was in the midst of Peter's circumstances as he began to sink ... and at the very asking for God's help, Jesus was there immediately performing another miracle.
Whatever you are trusting and believing God for today - guard your heart from any thoughts of fear and you will be able to "walk on the water" of your miracle too. Have faith in God and just believe! (You can read this account in Matthew 14:24-33).
