Choosing Life or Death

The doctor said I would die if I did not take the medication even though my body reacted so badly to it. She also said that I would not be able to have children, and if I did, I would end up dying due to my condition.

The Storms Will Come

The waves will come, we don’t have control over this.  We could either reject this season and all it could accomplish in our lives, letting it slam us into the arms of bitterness, anger, rejection…or we could embrace it.

Hermit to Honeybee

As I prayed and prophesied, helped tidy up and wash cups, as I went to a games evening with a complete bunch of strangers, I just kept thinking, “Wow! I would never have been able to do this before.”

Saved From Darkness

I’d been a main player in a criminal syndicate that distributed drugs to many Johannesburg night clubs, arrested multiple times for reasons ranging from assault to drugs…and even attempted murder.

Highs and Lows

If I could go back in time to the day we were asked to plant a new Joshua Generation Church congregation, my response now would be the same…and yet very different.

No Suffering Wasted

This has been our prayer right from the start of this journey – that our suffering would never be wasted, that we would never curl into a ball, shrink back and hide behind the diagnosis and its physical effects on my body.

No Turning Back

He asked for people to respond to the Lord if they wanted to declare to God “use me anywhere, anyhow, anytime etc.” and when I stood up to respond I knew without a doubt that God had seen this and that He took it seriously.

Passionate About Parenting

This life is imperfect and you cannot shield them from the pain of living in a fallen world. Your children learn more about your faith during the bad times than they do during the good times.

Be Fierce

Courage is not the absence of fear! Courage is acknowledging our fear… and then stepping out, in the face of our fear, to fight for what we know is right.

The Missing Peace

Christians love praying for peace. But do we even know what we’re praying for? If Christians seek the peace of the world, a peace without God, that peace is merely a façade.

Time To Fly

In March 2016 I attended the Four12 School of Prophecy and was given so many tools in the prophetic, not just to minister but to help and equip others to walk in their giftings too.

Get Your Own Story

I am no one extraordinary and no I’m not insecure about this truth. In fact I revel in the truth that I don’t need to be anyone special to fulfill the God given commission given to us all as believers.

Departed Power

The reason for defeat in Christian life and in ministry is departed power. Just as Elisha’s young prophet lost the axe head and stopped chopping until he found it, so there is a lesson for us.

My Chosen Weapon

Fasting is one of my chosen weapons against the forces of this world that would satisfy me in anything but God. It sharpens my appetite for the spiritual life I’m called to live.

Thank God for Expiry Dates

Unfortunately what I’ve experienced prior to finding breakthrough in life is: “With each different level – there’s a different devil.” It doesn’t end there, the encouragement is: EVERY difficult time has a God ordained expiry date, it won’t last forever and we will eventually break through.

Start Your Engines!

Christ who lives in me, is now the centre of my universe. He has replaced the big I with the ever-increasing HIM. His desires have now been placed in my spirit and I have an entirely new and all-powerful ‘engine’ operating from within my being…

Speaking Life

Whether you are speaking words full of faith or fear, the difference is the same – you are framing your own world and you will live in it.

Out of the Shadows

I am so excited to be going to Brazil, it will be a real challenge, but I can’t wait. I was reminded that Jesus works through us and that we are the hands and feet of Jesus.

6500km in Africa

In June/July of 2015, a group of 15 men from across the JoshGen went on a 17 day adventure and outreach through South Africa, Botswana, Zambia and Namibia.

Building Faith

It all started with a strange prophetic word from a visiting preacher, Tom Tapping. In 2006, four years after Oxygen Life Church was planted, he was preaching at one of our meetings and began to talk about us having our own building one day.

Suffering Well

The word ‘suffering’ in the bible refers to the various kinds of hardship that we face on the earth which clearly we won’t experience in heaven (Rev 21:4).

The Building Takes Shape!

Down in Port Elizabeth, our brand new building is taking shape! After 12 years of meeting in hired venues, we bought a building last year, and continue to meet in a school hall until it’s ready for us to move into in a few months.
