Many years ago my husband, Steve, was given a prophecy for me by a Godly man who had never met me. Steve came home and told me what this man had prophesied:
God wants to bless your wife and heal her. God knows she wants to work for His Kingdom and He wants to reassure her He knows she loves her children and wants the best for them and He knows all her needs.
I was then given this verse to back up the prophesy:
This is what the LORD, the God of Israel, says: “Write in a book all the words I have spoken to you.” (Jeremiah 30:2)
I am a writer. I love writing. One of the deepest desires of my heart is to be able to write about God and His amazing grace.
Today a friend of mine posted these photos on Facebook with the following words:
Popped in at Pna outside PnP Plumstead yesterday, Quite pleasing to see God’s Promise for Families on their shelves as well. Good going Noelene
I am sometimes totally awestruck at God’s grace and love at work in my life.
My second book, All God’s Stones, has just been released.
This to me is an incredible miracle. That I, Noelene Grace Curry, am fulfilling God’s plans for my life. That I am starting to develop into the woman He created me to be (a long way to go yet, mind you!) and that I am a beloved child of His.
All this DESPITE THE FACT that I often feel worthless, I often feel like I am letting God, my family and friends down, I often feel like a failure, I often feel despondent and discouraged, hopeless, depressed and despairing AND YET every morning I wake up and I KNOW “the LORD’S loving kindnesses never cease, His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; Great is His faithfulness. “The LORD is my portion,” says my soul, “Therefore I have hope in Him.” (Lamentations 3:22-24).
I KNOW that if I confess my sins He has said “I, I am he who blots out your transgressions for my own sake, and I will not remember your sins.” (Isaiah 43:25)

Noelene, it will always be! “In your weakness” that His glory will come shining through. Your inadequacy.. makes a way for His affirmative Hand that encourages and strengthen us for further works! rather than a self-confidence that can lead to carelessness. “In tension” is the prerogative.
We are to be content in that.

Brian, thank you for reading and commenting! Will need to reflect on – “In tension” is the prerogative – please expand?
I am just constantly overwhelmed at God’s generosity and His continuous healing in my life. The verse in Luke 7:47 certainly applies to me “Therefore I tell you, her sins, which are many, are forgiven—for she loved much.”
My love for God is overwhelming in the mercy and favour He has shown me. It is a daily journey of growth.
