Stories of a good God

About

I am a Mum living in Melbourne, Australia, that loves God and wishes to “leak” Heaven as I go, wherever I go.

It has been suggested to me that I should blog accounts of God’s Goodness and my walk with God – I am going to give this a go although I am quite illiterate about blogs, twitters, computers etc …

The main aim of all of this is to highlight God’s goodness; His kindness; His mercy; His sense of humour; His love; His joy and His passion for us and those around us … to highlight the sense of joy and the sheer excitement and fun of co-labouring with God, and how, if I can do this … anyone can!Β 

It has been on my heart for some time to start writing up and sharing my adventures with God stories – the amazing startling joyful “wins” and the not so great but incredibly beneficial “learning experiences”.

So, I encourage any of you to give walking with God a go … and watch as God goes to work … in and through you.Β  If you are anything like me you will be shocked, amazed and delighted at what He is willing to do in and through you …

Its fun and it sure beats anything else I have done … because …

God is Good!

      • Thank you for your encouragement … for the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea (Hab 2:14), and in showing Moses His Glory, God revealed His goodness to him and so, if we will leak Heaven as we go, release His goodness to those around us … then the knowledge of His Glory (of His goodness) will cover the earth as the oceans cover the sea … and through His loving kindness people will come to Christ because … God is Good πŸ™‚

      Thank you for the nomination! It is very humbling!

      I am now back from summer holidays (which were lovely) and have it on my list of “things to do” to accept, nominate, and thank people who have nominated “God is Good” for a variety of awards … it will happen and of course you will find out when it happens … when I get it set up on my blog with some techno help πŸ™‚ … but in the meantime, thank you, and yes … cannot say it enough … God IS Good!

In fact as soon as I started tapping away thanking you for your visit I felt the Presence of God very strongly and the power of what you have broken open for you, and your people and for the generations to come! I suspect you are an extraordinary person whom ministers powerfully in word and sign … And I bless and honour for this. He loves you well!

  19. Hi, I came across your website and specifically the testimonies of healing, especially cerebral palsy. I am a father of 3, 37 yrs old, and live in Wisconsin, USA. My youngest son, Isaiah, is currently 22 months old and diagnosed with CP. As the other father in the testimony was described, I am devastated and lacking in motivation to keep living. Pretty hard to feel this way when so many other things depend on me. I can’t even be allowed to feel sad for to long before I have to go to work, take care of this or that, etc. My wife and I are Christians, believe completely in healing, etc. But right now, I am so distraught. We have done all we know to do for Isaiah with little to no improvement. Therapy, doctors, hyperbarics, etc. He can’t really do anything. He can’t sit, stand, crawl, hold anything, play, talk, hold his head up, etc. It’s as close to being dead but yet alive, other than being in a coma.

    Right now, I just want to quit. I want out. I can’t do this much longer. We have literally been prayed for hundreds of times and NOTHING. I don’t understand. As a human, I have a mental anguish threshold and pain limit. I just am about to crack.

    Please pray for Isaiah and our family. I am no longer the husband and father I should be. I have been swept away in the waves of despair and intense concern for my child. I am doing my best to wait and hold on to God and His promises, but its as if I do not exist anymore. Very confused and filled with sorrow 24/7.

    Thank you for reading/praying,
    Tom

    • Dear Tom
      I was so saddened to hear of your story. I immediately sent your prayer request to my dear friend from church who has seen a healing of her son of CP and even infertility. I just called her to thank her for praying for you, and she said that your reaction is very much how her husband felt; whereas she felt relief at finding out what was wrong with her boy, rather than being fobbed off by the doctors, as she had been for so long before the diagnosis came. There is not much more that we can do but encourage you to stand firm and we will pray for you, your son and the rest of your family.
      We both felt you sounded like a good man! Your response is very understandable, and my friend said how much she remembers that complete sense of knowing and realising that there was nothing they could do, but trust God … the easiest thing to say, yet the hardest thing to do.
      Bethel Church Redding California may have some more testimonies for you to hold onto. God is no respecter of persons and what he has done for my friend’s son He can do again for yours.
      If you have any prophetic words over your, your family or even your son’s life I would also hold onto them no matter what …
      Can I also suggest, having not walked in your shoes so I cannot truly know, that you perhaps give yourself permission to grieve. While I can imagine you are busy and life must go on, there is also a permission that I believe we need to give ourselves (and one another) to grieve, and to even be angry about things … God is a very big God and He will not mind you being angry and upset and even lacking faith and just being plain sad … the father who said to Jesus “I believe, help me in my disbelief” comes to mind in Mark 9:24. I have prayed that prayer so many times when faced with insurmountable issues, and I see it as an encouraging scripture where the father was real with Jesus …
      And lastly can I suggest that you are kind to yourself …
      You do so sound like a good good man and I wish you many many blessings.
      Kindest regards
      God is Good!

  20. Hi, and thank you so much for reading and responding to my email. Thank you so much for your blog/website! It really is so encouraging and a blessing to so many people I am sure. I thank God I found it. I know my desperation came forth very strongly in my message, and if it was too much, I apologize. Thank you so much for praying for me, having your friend pray for me that has been through and found victory in a similar situation. I really do need to read, hear, meditate on stories like these, besides seek my heavenly Father on the matter. Through these rough waters, he has been my anchor, even when my emotions get the best of me or seek to swallow me up. It is brother and sisters in Christ that have become oh so precious to me these past two years. I have come to know just how much we need each other, the Body, to bring Him glory in its fullness.

    Thank you for your kind words and Scriptural encouragement. I know God loves me and sometimes our humanness can’t comprehend just how loving, BIG, and gracious our Father really is. I pray that I may know Him as I am known by Him and please Him during this tough spot. I believe and will hold on to His promises, the prophetic words over my son’s life, my family, and myself. You are so right! I need to hold on, trust, and expect my Father’s faithfulness to be seen in His timing. I pray that His strength continues to take me over this mountain until I am looking down on what used to be.

    Again, thank you so much. I am doing a bit better. Please continue to pray for me, my family, and especially my son, Isaiah. I know I am a stranger, but yet a brother in our great Savior, Yeshua Messiah. Your prayers and those of other believers with faith to move mountains are priceless and precious to me. I will not forget to pray for you all as well.

    Love from my family to yours,

    Tom, Felicia (wife), Israel (7), Hadassah (5), and Isaiah (22 mo.’s)

  22. Hi there,
    My name is Connor and I’ve had stomach pains for a year and a half. I have had numerous tests done and none of them have shown a cause to the problem. It stresses me out beyond belief. It’s affecting my work and social life. I pray every night that God will heal me, and I know his timing is always right. I’m hoping you’d be willing to pray for me, as this burden is really too much.
    Thank you more than you know.

    • Hi Connor.
      I prayed this afternoon for you. I trust you recover. Maybe read the testimony “sound of healing” and Google Annette Mace and her testimony. There is also a story a few years ago where my daughter got a dreadful bug Christmas Day and we prayed and it lifted. You may be able to search that testimony. All I know and believe is if He has healed others He will heal you too!
      Blessings Connor!

  25. I was touched by the testimonies that I have read . My name is Martha from South Africa. I have been trusting God for the restoration of my hairline . I have lost a big chunk of my hairline that I even resorted to wearing headscarves all the time. When my husband tries to touch my head I always remove his hand and cover my head with something quickly. Will you kindly pray for me. And also for my infertility , and other health problems. And also pray that we find a good church, both me and my husband are not members of any church .

    • Hi Martha,
      Thank you for taking the time to read.
      I am praying for you now. I also pray for you to conceive as so many have before you … in Jesus name!
      I declare healing and health for you Martha.
      What I have not yet written about on my blog is my own hair loss two years ago. Handfuls came out and I resorted to keeping it back in a pony tail, not knowing what to do as it grew thinner and thinner … it has since grown back healthy … and changed from being completely straight to curly! In the natural I believe that the condition was due to a low thyroid.
      I will pray for you Martha. can I also suggest, if you have other health related issues, that you find a really good doctor and get your thyroid levels checked, along with other tests. My sister could not get pregnant and had many miscarriages due to low thyroid function, and I think my hair loss was also affected by my thyroid health.
      I also pray for a wonderful faith filled church for you to attend … one that loves and accepts you and your husband just the way that you are but that calls you into the person you are destined to become …
      I love that your husband still so loves you … I trust the day will come when your hair is full and glorious, your health is vibrant, as you hold a beautiful baby, in a wonderful church you call home!
      Many many blessings Martha.

    My hair has been thinning in an unusual way for several years now. I know my hair is my crown of God’s glory. I have been believing for my healing for a long time. Things have been extremely stressful for many years. I’ve faced difficult relentless times. In the natural I’m down to 1layer of hair. I’ve prayed every prayer. I read the story on line and the blog. I was encouraged. Baldness is terrible for a woman. I feel ashamed. I know that my Father loves me. I’m not sure why my hair hasn’t returned yet. I know He can bring/restore and give me a total healing!! Please PRAY that the LORD WILL RESTORE MY HAIR. Thank you soooo much.

I actually had a lot of my hair fall out recently (two-three years ago) and I am fortunate that after getting some adrenal, thyroid endocrine balance it has grown back … but from very straight to very curly … I trust your’s grows back abundantly too. Blessings, God is Good!
