Blow, ruach breath of God, on, in and through us

 

Blog

 

The Hebrew word ‘mashal’ means ‘to speak’, as in a prophetic utterance.
It is also used of short articles that impart specific truths.
In our blog we combine devotional meditations, teaching articles
and intercessory prayer pointers often with anointed music.
We hope these will inspire you as you read, worship and pray.

Short Thoughts

Halfway between Pooh’s house and Piglet’s house was a Thoughtful Spot
where they met sometimes when they had decided to go and see each other . . .
(AA Milne, The House at Pooh Corner)

May these short reflections be a blessing
as you too spend time in a Thoughtful Place with the Lord.

A Lament for our Times

A Lament for our Times

I love it when I spot the Lord’s hand at work in every day matters. A few days ago, totally randomly, my phone suddenly started playing a familiar and exquisite piece of music that we recorded some years ago: 'Autumn' from Vivaldi’s Four Seasons. Well, we are...

A special Hymn as we enter lockdown

God is working His purpose out One evening recently the Lord spoke these words very clearly to me: ‘All that we do is nothing worth unless God bless the deed.’ The words are taken from a great hymn, God is working His purpose out as year succeeds to year. The theme is...

May God bless you with a restless discomfort about easy answers, half-truths and superficial relationships, so that you may seek truth boldly and love deep within your heart. May God bless you with holy anger at injustice, oppression, and exploitation of people, so...

We will gradually be adding many longer books and articles onto this website, as we transfer them from our existing site. We would love to encourage you to try searching for any theme, topic or nation you are interested in and see what you can find.

But the Lord is often very concise, and we are offering some shorter thoughts to ponder here.

May these short reflections bring you blessings as you too spend time in Thoughtful Places with the Lord.

short thoughts

“Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God.”

Colossians 3:16

For thousands of years, God’s people have been weaving music, meditation and prayer together in a fragrant offering to Him. We have had the privilege of working with some remarkable song writers, composers and minstrels who have played beautifully rich music and anointed worship, that inspires faith, aids the release of healing and powerfully undergirds intercession. May you receive a deep touch from the Lord as you enter in to these extensive libraries and collections.
On the right you will find links to Sound Cloud tracks, and below a number of Playlists that feature themes, songs and items by individual composers.
Jesus, let Your presence draw near as we listen!

ABOUT

We will be adding many things to this website as it develops and these drop-down boxes will provide easy navigation to access them. We are at the very beginning of this process but are excited as to what we will be going to share with you.

ARTICLES TO READ

The Hebrew word ‘mashal’ means ‘to speak’, as in a short prophetic utterance. It is used of parables and teachings that focus on particular issues and that impart specific truths. It seemed a good word to run with – especially because I was looking for something beginning with M to go with the town we live in: Malvern!
We send out regular ezines that combine devotional meditations, teaching articles and intercessory prayer themes and insights with powerful music that we have recorded with outstanding musician friends.
We will soon be adding many more articles and links to the website – watch this space!

LISTEN

Listen to beautiful music – sometimes set to thoughtful prayers and meditations – that will inspire prayer and draw you into the presence of God.

Open our eyes, Lord, we want to see

PRAY

I will pray with my spirit, but I will also pray with my understanding; I will sing with my spirit, but I will also sing with my understanding.  (1 Cor. 14:15)
