Let Them Know

This is a parody of Frozen’s “Let It Go“, about evangelism. I wrote the lyrics, and directed and edited the filming. I hope it encourages children and young people, and all Christians, to tell the world about Jesus.

Signs and Wonders

“I will give you hidden treasures, riches stored in secret places, so that you may know that I am the Lord, the God of Israel, who summons you by name.” (Isaiah 45:3)

I remember reading that when you lay cheek to cheek with someone and feel their eyelashes flutter it is called “butterfly kisses”. I also remember reading someone coin the term “butterfly blessings” for little things she noticed God doing throughout the day. I often think of this when thanking God for good things that happen in my day.

Everyday I am surprised and awed by the many little things that God does to show me He is there for me and strengthen my faith. In the past, I have earnestly prayed for a sign from God and He has answered my prayer. Just like the majestic miracles in the Bible, God still speaks and acts today.

When I was a teenager, I took part in a beach mission telling children about Jesus. However, I was going through doubts in my own faith at the time. I prayed desperately for a sign that God was real. One weekend, I went to a church I had never been to before, and the priest suddenly ripped up his sermon notes!

“I don’t usually do this”, he said.

“But God has a message for somebody here.

He wants to tell you He is real”.

I knew it was a message for me, and told him so after the service, in tears. He prayed for me and my twin sister and said we would bring many people to God. I treasure this prophecy in my heart.

Since then, I have had lots more signs from God, both great and small. One time, when I was working for the church, I had a period of low self esteem and wondered if God loved me or not. I prayed about it, and within the space of a few days God showed me this Bible verse-

38 For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, 39 nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Ephesians 8: 38-39).

I read it in my Bible daily devotional ( download the Bible app), the next day a sermon was preached on it, the next day I sang the song “Jesus’ Love Is Very Wonderful” with my toddler group- the lyrics are “Jesus’ love is very wonderful, so high you can’t get over it, so low you can’t go under it, so wide you can’t get round it, oh wonderful love!” These things are often called “coincidences” by the world, but I prefer the term “Godincidences” I heard somewhere.

The way I met my husband was miraculous. I had always wanted to get married before I turned 30. At 28, I had been single for about 4 or 5 years, my twin sister was married and pregnant and I was desperate for my husband. I had gone on hundreds of dates with different people from Christian dating sites but not found my ideal man, a man full of hunger for God but also one I would be attracted to and have fun with. Every night I would cry myself to sleep and pray, safe in the knowledge that God hears me and counts my tears. “You keep track of all my sorrows. You have collected all my tears in your bottle. You have recorded each one in your book.” (Psalm 56:8)

On my 29th Birthday I met a gorgeous Christian man on the dating site the same site my twin had met her husband. We talked on the phone and a week later we had our first date at a Church in London, followed by Pizza Express. We discussed the Bible and Jesus the whole time and I felt an attraction to him like never before. In church I had a vision/imagining of me in a wedding dress and both of us standing at the altar. I dismissed this as wishful thinking, but that night, he called me and told me something amazing. On his way home, he had been thinking about me and wondering who I was in his life. Suddenly he saw a light and a voice from Heaven said “son, this is your wife.” I didn’t know what to think when he told me, but time would tell. Time told its ancient tale and we fell passionately in love. Less than three months later, on fireworks day, the love of my life proposed. We married six months after that, with Jesus firmly in the centre of our relationship. I celebrated my 30th Birthday a newly-wed of three months!

God’s timing was perfect as I had come out of a tumultuous time in my faith due to bad relationships and confusing heresies/cult theologies. I needed my time of singleness to focus on God and grow strong in Him so my desires matched His when I was looking for my husband. “Delight yourself in the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your heart.” (Psalm 37:4) God also showed me the story in the Bible of Abraham sacrificing Isaac, he went to sacrifice Isaac but God stopped him and he saw a bull in a bush, a better sacrifice. I had to sacrifice my feelings for my ex and trust God had a better plan for me- my true love husband. God healed my broken heart. (“The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit”. Psalm 34:18) He also showed me a picture of Jesus encouraging a girl to give Him her teddy she was holding tight- behind His back was a gigantic teddy. This really spoke to me- He had something much better in store.

“‘For I know the plans I have for you’, says the Lord. ‘Plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.'” (Jeremiah 29:11)

My husband told me as a teenager he would pray for a wife exactly like me, even down to the white dress I wore in my profile picture! I am astounded and grateful everyday that God has given me my dream-come-true man, even ticking superficial boxes like curly hair and blue eyes! God loves to give good gifts and two-fold blessings, more than we can ever ask or imagine.

“Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations forever and ever. Amen!” (Ephesians 3:21)

Another major miracle and example of God’s perfect timing in my life is healing me from infertility! I was trying for a baby for 2 years with my husband but had been diagnosed with PCOS which meant I did not ovulate every month. After a year I took clomid tablets and conceived in the third month but sadly miscarried. I tried about 6 more rounds of clomid to no avail so signed up for IVF. While on the waiting list I was going to try letrozole, but I was diagnosed with a prolactinoma so needed to take medicine for that first to try to shrink it. At the same time as this my routine cervical screening test came back as abnormal so I needed to go for futher investigations. It all got overwhelming and I prayed for healing as I had done before, but this time I felt God say “you are already healed” and put a Biblical name in my head. I looked it up and it means “God has healed”. I was so excited and dared to wonder could I be healed from everything? I did a pregnancy test a few days later- and it was miraculously positive! I had not taken any medications as I had been waiting to come on my period first. It was a total miracle! I am so grateful for our precious baby every single day. At 17 weeks pregnant I got the call from the IVF clinic and was able to share my testimony- no meds, just prayer and a miraculous God of wonders! He works so spectacularly to us humans it seems last minute but it is His absolute perfect timing. As my husband recently put it, at 10 to 10pm it looks like nothing’s happening but at 10pm everything can change! God is a God of the 10 to 10!

3 months after my baby was born I went for a cervical smear and, as you may have guessed, results came back clear! This is where words cannot begin to describe the amazing miraculous God I serve in Jesus name.

As well as these monumental signs, I experience daily “butterfly blessings”. For instance, myself and my friend planned topics to teach children in our Bible Adventures after-school club. To our surprise, we had planned the week on Creation to be the exact same week that the entire school were learning about Creation! (I worked in a Christian school). Also, I saw a rainbow in the sky the week before we taught the story of Noah’s Ark. In our club we had a “Signs and Wonders” board to record all these little moments from God, where we get glimpses of His greater plan. Like a ball of string, all the events and decisions in our lives tie up together. As the Bible says,

“And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good,[g] for those who are called according to his purpose.” (Romans 8:28)

I recommend to anyone who wants to get closer to God, to pray for Him to reveal Himself. Having a relationship with Jesus is the most amazing and indescribably joyful thing you could ever do. He already knows and loves you (, and is waiting for you to come home to Him.

26 “And he made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined allotted periods and the boundaries of their dwelling place, 27 that they should seek God, and perhaps feel their way toward him and find him. Yet he is actually not far from each one of us, 28 for“‘In him we live and move and have our being’;[d] as even some of your own poets have said,“‘For we are indeed his offspring.’[e] (Acts 17: 26-28)

You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart” (Jeremiah 29:13)

Christian Poetry

2 Corinthians 3:17

There’s no greater prison

Than the games inside our heads.

No greater punishment

Than the chains of our brains.

Confusing bruising past


Poison drip by


From other people’s cups.

his cup split

my skull scattered

our memories spread

down my brain pipe

into my spineless

stomach. Congealed

and waiting.

Poison cast

ironed a prison

heart blocked.

My soul untouched

Too damaged to touch.

A prison of a thousand years.

Only One can set me free.

Bold beholden He

kisses life from bloodied lips.

He rides through death’s door

destroys the forest’s fire

that tangled my sleeping


His power in flaming sword

casts away spinning

entrails of memory.

I wait

Cold flesh contained

in my glass case.

The poison apple-guised

as love, clutching my heart strangle-hold.

Inside I’m crying but not dead yet.

Silent struggle an echo of

my worldwide brothers and sisters,

grasping, reaching, thorns flashing

through tormenting flesh.

My eyes rise

He is light like the Son

He is light.

My pupils shrink

He bends down to



When God Stepped Down (sung to music)

When God stepped down among us

It was cold as winter snow

When God stepped down among us

He had nowhere to go

In a world of fear, and a people lost,

The brightest star began to glow

For the wise who search, for the simple sheep

For everyone who dares to go

When God stepped down among us

The night was dark and cold

When God stepped down among us

As the prophecies foretold

A baby born with a cross to bear

To claim the hearts of those who hear

Children, men and women, all

Who celebrate His birth each year

When God stepped down among us

To live and love and grow

When God stepped down among us

2000 years ago


Fisher of Woman

I saw a guide amongst the fish and

He called out to me:

‘Take one more step toward me and

you will truly be free!’

The Saviour of Mankind was there

Standing on the sea

Miraculously I dared to care and

He has now saved me!

Jesus!/ Writing

Magic splurges onto paper

Free from its enclosure

Some ink insinuates


Born of golden lip

Before the world began

Resurrected for you, me and Glaswegians

The word doesn’t cry

But lies naked


Let the Children Come to Me”

A young, young girl looked to the sky

asked for an angel with a sigh

he could teach her how to fly

he’d cock an eyebrow

smile and say

where would you like to fly today

she’d smile back

and ask if she

could go to Heaven

just to see

she’d climb upon

his wings so strong

it wouldn’t take her very long

they’d fly away

into blue yonder

yes her wish grew ever fonder

above the grimy gutsy crowds

above the gravestones and the shrouds

above the churches and the mosques

above the shrines and synagogues

they’d get to heaven

there she’d stay

no going back

she’d heard them say

she’d heard that Jesus

died for her sins

would He be there to welcome her in

but she was bad

too bad to be true

she didn’t think she’d be let through

back to earth she’d cry with dismay

but she forgot to look both ways

screech she screamed her face aghast

her body lies there in the past

mangled arms between the wheels

legs strewn open

bloody heels

where is her angel

nowhere near

she’s whisked straight up

without a fear

she has no body mind or heart

solely a spirit set apart

so full of love

she can’t contain it

a world so real

she can’t explain it

she is at peace

and then she sees

the Lord and falls upon her knees

He knows she’s sorry

His eyes are sad

she sees all she’s done and had

yet He fills her up with joy

His grace an amazing impossible ploy

Jesus dying on the cross

fills her with such love and loss

one more chance she begs desperately

I’ll live for Him, He died for me!

The Power of Prayer

Maybe if you said a prayer

You would know that He is there

You would see it to be true-

Jesus really does love you!

Christ’s Love

Christ’s love lives through the warmth we share

We offer His heart when we show we care.

What Would You Say…>

What would you say if

I told you you have a soul

just behind your heart?

It’s hard as a rock- a slate-

grey ball but sometimes it

turns pink, blue, sapphire, it

glows any colour


the sun.

It’s as big as an elephant

as strong as a lioness

as strange as a fire

It towers like a mountain-top

and it quivers in

your hands.
