Welcome to the sapphire-connect newsletter to help you discover a bigger view of GOD.
Another great get away trip down the south coast to Kiama. I love experiencing God in different flavors of the ocean. Call it madness, I know. But the coolest part of the trip was learning how to make water kefir. Yup, I was so excited after making my first batch. ok..

This teaching on developing discernment covers a lot of ground by showing you some basic kinds of discernment and how you can develop the specific kind God gave you. Many of us might feel that we have little discernment. We need to think again. God has not left us powerless against the wiles of the enemy. What hope is there without discernment? It is a vital component to our spiritual development.
We are all designed by God with discernment There is no lack, just a matter of unpacking it.
Because our gifts have been overlooked and even ignored, we lose the joy and dominion that God planned us to have through exercising our gifts.
What is this thing we call discernment? It is the spirit's ability to sense what our soul is incapable of knowing. We can no longer disregard our spirit to the trust of our soul. One way this plays out is the shutting down of spiritual discernment as a child. If left to our soul we will not pick up the clues in our children when they are recognizing the realms of the spirit. This teaching is for parents to identify their child's design and partner with God in unpacking it. It is also for adults involved in kingdom work.
There is a wide variety of discernment and God gave each of us what we would need for our own unique journey. How very cool is that? Can you discern the spiritual qualities of land or weather? Perhaps the demonic or the very gifts of God? The over all flavor of this teaching is one of discovery and a restoration of dignity.
I have included here the Cleansing Prayer to close the Psychic Door. This is a powerful class action lawsuit covering the many streams of occult defilement that opens the psychic door.
Sapphire Connection Study Group
Are you looking for a place to grow? To be encouraged? A focused group to study and explore more of your design? If you answered yes to any of these questions, the sapphire connection study group may be the place for you.
Some of us learn best in a group setting. We may feel incapable of getting anything done alone behind a desk. If you have ever had a successful classroom environment, then you will know it takes a mix of great resources and interaction with people to keep everyone motivated and achieving good outcomes. Interaction is something I want to explore. I have found more times than not, being around SLG is like drinking from a fire hose! For this reason, I have been trying out different venues and other avenues of networking.
Here is yet another opportunity to support and encourage one another whilst being in the trenches of life, whatever that may look like for you. I have been so blessed to hear so many stories of God at work through the most diverse of ways. I want to high five, hug, laugh, cry and celebrate this wild and whacky tribe and welcome you here.
Life After Church has been more than high profile as of late. I will keep you posted for our starting date. Please do ping me if you are interested.
Among the Gum Trees
Please give a warm welcome to Rosemary, a special visitor to sit and chat with us 'among the gum trees'.
HEY ROSEMARY, CAN YOU TELL US A BIT ABOUT YOURSELF?
I am married to Frank (42 years) with 3 grown up sons, daughters-in-law and 4 grandchildren, aged 10 months to 3 years. I live in Toowoomba, Qld., too far from my kids who are all in the Hunter Valley!
I first connected with SLG when I asked a friend ‘do I have kick me written on my forehead?’ and she answered, ‘well, yes actually!’ she then shared the teaching on the Victim Spirit and introduced me to Blessing Your Spirit.
I am redemptive gift of Mercy … married to a RG of Prophet! Ouch! Life is rarely comfortable and I even exasperate myself with my inability to make a snap decision!
All the SLG teachings have made significant impact on my life but I thing Blessing Your Spirit and Redemptive Gifts have been my ‘go to’ teachings on a daily basis, as I use those to be more aware of my interactions with others and if I have no other strategy, just to bless, bless, bless. One of my favourite teachings to listen to is The Majesty of His Artistry, it just warms and comforts my spirit.
I think I am more relaxed about life generally..

She and Paul have raised the bar for ministering to babies in the womb. They have implemented so many different principles and touched a lot of lives. Elaine is currently runs her own health care business, combining nutrition for the body with healing from the spirit.
"Suppose you have a healing service and ten blind people come forward. Five are healed and five not. "Don't develop a theology of failure to explain the five that didn't get healed. Just schedule another healing service and you will get another one or two."
"Don't develop a theology of failure . . . "
Very important for some who shoots for the stars so often and sometimes can't even get as far as the smog.
