When God’s got you!

By Natalia Hatton | Blog

At five this morning I woke, knowing that the hope I had was once again dashed for this very moment in time.  But as I thought on things I know my God is not only for me, but has got me so securely in His tender, purposeful hand.  I am grateful for His fingerprints that […]

What’s in a name?

By Natalia Hatton | Blog

This week at the bible study we have poured over Ruth and what amazed me was the attention to detail that was seen as the names and meanings were looked at. We see that Elimilek’s name meant ‘my God is King’ and the roots of his life were grounded in God, so that makes sense. […]

The Intrigue of Prayer

By Natalia Hatton | Blog

Ever been confused by verses on prayer and the unpacking of those where it says to ask and you will receive? “And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son” John 14:13 “He replied, Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, […]

The biggies of life

By Natalia Hatton | Blog

This morning as I lay doing my pilates with the music of my playlist “Captivate” belting out of my phone there were many swirling thoughts in my mind.  In part there is such excitement that in less than an hour I will be at BSF leaders unpacking a fav part of scripture.  We’ve slogged through […]

God’s extravagant love

By Natalia Hatton | Blog

I am sitting here in awe at God’s extravagant love!  Today I woke with great apprehension over some impending things.  And yet as the day has unfolded I know I have had a front row seat yet again to the extravagant love of my God.  He knows our fears, the cause of our tears and […]

Line in the sand

By Natalia Hatton | Blog

The lingering notes of Jadore remind me of walking down the aisle and starting the rest of my life with my wonderful man.  The beat of music making their way to my ears take me back down memory lane to so many moments.  A simple smell or noise remind me of the ‘friend’ days with […]

Soaring

By Natalia Hatton | Blog

The past two months have been hard ones for me for a variety of reasons.  In that space of wrestling it out satan has had a field day and I took things hook line and sinker.  I was feeling insecure and doubting much, second guessing my purpose and lane, feeling wearing and battered.  But in […]

Intentional Growth

By Natalia Hatton | Blog

I am not someone to pretend perfection and know my weaknesses and strengths all too well.  I don’t mind others knowing them too and gladly use them as illustrations that others may avoid my pitfalls and learn something from a life lived real and open.  BUT I am someone who wants to continually grow, to […]

God works with real

By Natalia Hatton | Blog

In 2011 when I first started going along to Bible Study Fellowship, a global in depth bible study, they were delving into Isaiah.  In the welcome they rattled off the ten years they had on offer and what you would be unpacking if you stuck around.  As Roman’s was mentioned I whispered to God that […]
