The fires here in Australia are shocking and terrible. If you are reading this and want to help the people who are affected by this tragedy, please would you consider giving generously.
On a personal note, regular readers will remember that last year Jesus said that when the rivers and lakes run, that my life with Him will change. Those rivers HAVE run and the lakes HAVE filled (for example goyder, eyre and ones in the simpson desert and in channel country) – all these HAVE filled and ancient rivers have flooded and run! 🙂
Then early this year in a dream, I was standing in front of Him and He said “Have a sabbatical in 4 months” and He wrote it in His diary. 4 months is mid-March. That time is weeks away! 🙂
Then you may remember that recently I wrote a post where I saw myself as a boat, setting off from the berth where I had been lashed onto. My life direction was about to change. And it now is.
With my business income having been interrupted prior to the GFC and now that my income is NIL, my business visa to be in Australia is at risk, and my time here is ending. Im at peace with this, because I know it’s His timing. I’ve been so blessed to have lived here. Its a wonderful land with wonderful people and a wonderful climate.
Regrets? My two biggest regrets are not having been able to help more people, by using the words and gifts and insight He has given me. My other regret is at not having been able to secure a job in this time of need, so I dont have enough money to travel within Australia before I go. I would have loved to have had a road trip to see the wonderful sights in this great country.
I have met and known very wonderful people here and praise God for FB, because I can stay in touch with them there.
I expect to leave my home in Canberra in a month and close my business and leave the wonderful land of Australia in around two months. It will be with a mixture loss of friendship, and sadness for what could have been, and very great excitement for what God has for me next.
I hope He will place me in a country which has faith to ask Jesus for the things that they need, things which I can participate in.
Meantime… the blogging continues unabated, keep visiting! 🙂
