About The Water Bearer

I became a mum at a young age, raising my daughters always took priority in my life. I watched my mother raise three children on her own and drew strength from her as she never gave up no matter how hard the journey was. I thought that’s all there was to it! …Until I reconnected with my Dad after being estranged for many years. My relationship with him changed my perspective on many things as he taught me various techniques to spiritual awareness, those which he had been studying the entire time we had been separated. His teachings were invaluable and I miss his input more than I can explain; my dear Dad lost a very short battle with cancer a few years ago.
Dad and I had a wonderfully raw, honest relationship, and due to our connection, and some big changes in my life at the time, I found my relationship with God become intimate. That’s when an amazing set of circumstances led me to be called upon to write a novel, which I have been working on ever since, when his spirit has moved me.  Being a mum and a child of the Lord, I am passionate about helping God’s children find faith, hope and truth in all of life’s mountains. Being part Human and part Spirit, I am also passionate about revealing how the secret truths from a trusting relationship with our creator can miraculously impact our existence. I cringe at being called religious, as I dont profess to be aligned with any specific doctrine or church, I try to share what I’ve lived out in my walk with God. And I realised a long time ago that no one else has been led the exact same way I have. Our paths sometimes join up for a while, but not permanently. I have a number of mystic capacities such as prophetic dreams, and intuitive prompting, and have had some amazing true miracles occur as a result of a close sensitivity to the spiritual realm. The name ‘The Water Bearer’ came from a spiritually sensitive man who my Dad and I met a number of years ago.  He also explained that I am here to refresh people’s faith. I hope that is true!
After a lucky escape from a car accident my limitations from my injuries led to a feeling of loss in self-worth and direction. Through lots of investigating I discovered that I suffer from a cyclic mood disorder (Cyclothymia), anxiety and depression and have hit the bottom of the valley many times. I continue to fight against this condition with the acceptance and support of loved ones and I am blessed to have found some balance with a variety of professional treatments and wellness practices. Living with that condition has opened my eyes to the phenomenon that is whitewashing our society; it seems everywhere we turn there is a new ‘miracle’ anti-depressant being pumped into the down trodden, another helpline to assist both children and adults struggling with suicidal imaginations or another fundraiser raising awareness and funding for researching depression. It has become out of control and we owe it to ourselves and our future generations to step back, take a look at the bigger picture and ask why?
I pray this journey I am embarking on brings honour to Christ’s name rather than my own and that all my works will be inspired by him, for him and in awe of him. . .
I also pray that the weaknesses of my flesh and mind will not win the battle within me so that my feet stay glued to his path “Thy will be done, not my will be done”.
I hope you enjoy ‘Inner Angels and Enemies’.

  3. I do believe this is the first time I have “liked” an “about” post on a blog. 🙂 Thank you for stopping by my little blog and liking my post. Reading this it is hard to believe you are “Goth” at one point in your life. So many lessons to be learned and so many experiences to make up who we are today huh? I was floored by my 6-year old’s comment and had to share it! 🙂

    • Hi There!! 🙂 It is so nice of you to give such a lovely compliment of ‘liking’ my ‘about’ page..Especially if it the first one, wow! It actually took me ages to work our how to make it permanently appear on my blog wall lol So has only been up a couple of weeks…Ah, in time these things come , just like the many lesson’s in life as you mentioned in your comment. I was a Goth from the age of 17 to 21 and while I still like some of the clothes, I find it hard to come up with an excuse to feel comfortable wearing them Lol (Fancy Dress maybe! 😉 ). It amazes me how much has changed since those days. Thank you so much for dropping by, your comment truly made my day. Keep on sharing those pearls of wisdom from your son…Blessings to you!

    The Water Bearer reminds me of the woman at the well when Yahusha/Jesus said to her “give me drink” and she was astounded that He would even speak to her. It’s an awesome story that we can all relate to no doubt. Your blog is lovely and I look forward to reading at the well:) May Yahuah bless and keep all His true followers safe and happy in the new year.

      To get a picture on the sidebar you need to add it to your media library first, then I just copy the http:link to that picture. Then go to Widgets and move the ‘image’ tab over to your right side of the screen and then paste the link into the place required. I hope that helps if you are still stuck let me know. Blessings to you!

    Hi Water B.
    I love your blog. I’m in the process of putting together Christian testimonies on my blog. If you have yours written down, would you mind if I “borrowed” it? I would need to copy and paste it directly to my blog for a full effect. It would be part of a group that would be listed under a “Testimonies” Page at the top of my blog.
    God Bless,

    • Hello Robin, Thank you for the kind compliment. Testimonies are a wonderful thing and I can understand the method behind your thinking, however I do not have one testimony as such. The Lord has done more for me than I could put on one page and my testimony grows daily, so I just put parts up on my blog as they come to me. Thank you for the thought though, Good luck with it all. Blessings to you!

So I am wondering what would you be asking of me exactly? I was asked to join you before xmas, to write for your teen readers, but time got away from me. How does the process work? Maybe I could set up a questions and answers type column and respond as the questions come in. What do you think? Thank you so much and Blessings to you!

    Your writings are truly inspiring. I too have been working on my insecurities for years. i used to say “how can I love myself the way people talk about loving themselves?” It sounds like such an easy thing to do….right? Wrong! Things I thought were my weaknesses were actually my strengths used in the wrong manner. I realized the devil plants seeds in us when we are young. seeds that grow inside us like a cancer. It diseases our hearts our spirits and our minds. He starts from the beginning fighting to keep us from doing Gods work. Fighting to corrupt who we are meant to be on this earth. Ive learned that his whole goal is to keep me from being the best me I can be. Through my pain I have realized that I am nothing without God. Thank you for posting this. I just came across it and wanted to say thank you!!
