Welcome to Shalom Aleh (Healing Leaves), a weekly blog to encourage you and your family, as you heal from trauma, in the living Word and testimony of Jesus. May you be blessed in this place and go back out into this yearning world, to be a blessing to others.
Each month, we will rest in a particular character trait of Jesus: in who He is in us, for us, through us and to us. Each weekly publication, on a Tuesday, will be centered on this monthly theme.
January Theme : The Love of Christ
February Theme: The Eyes of Christ
Seeing and Perceiving (Joy Lenton)
Come Back, Daughter (Lisa Anne Tindal)
Sometimes the order of the weekly posts below may differ, in response to the Holy Spirit’s prompting.
Every first week of the month, you will find a new devotional. These have been created with families in mind. They are child-friendly and can be read or listened to together with your children. Each devotional begins with an application of the Bible to our everyday life, including one or more mini-testimonies. This is followed by one or more practical ways we can seek our God throughout our week. We end with a Scripture-filled prayer.
Every second week of the month, you will find a new chapter of my own personal testimony. Each installment will invite you to see the fingerprints of Jesus on your own story. We will end with a time of prayer and reflection. I will invite you to join me in praying the Word of God over your life.
Every third week of the month, you will find a poem/poetry reading, ending with an invitation into prayer. These poems are rooted in and inspired by Scripture. They also reflect God’s healing hand upon us, His children.
Every fourth week of the month, you will find testimonies from other believers: from friends of mine who share of the healing God has been gifting them.
