Hearing His Voice: Meeting Jesus in the Garden of Promise

Hearing His Voice: Meeting Jesus in the Garden of Promise

by Meredith Swift  


Do you feel lost and isolated, as though you don’t matter?

Do you feel tired and stressed, in need of replenishment and refreshment?
Do you want to find out more about the One who loves you more deeply, and knows you more thoroughly, than you could ever imagine?
HEARING HIS VOICEDo you want to find out practical ways to grow your faith and walk more closely with Jesus?
Then this book is for you!

Written during recovery

Meredith wrote this book during recovery from an extremely challenging time in her life – having gone through a divorce, resignation from her long term teaching job and relocation to a different city to access better services for her autistic daughter. Her daughter was also very unwell at this time, becoming bedridden by a mystery illness. All of this had left Meredith feeling exhausted, fearful, alone and very isolated.

Guidance of Scripture

Meredith knew she needed to strengthen her fragile spirit and overcome the fear of this time. She sought the guidance of Scripture and the assistance of the Lord Jesus Christ, knowing that only He could bring comfort and healing at the deep levels required. Meredith knew that her relationship with her Creator meant He was available 24/7 and so she started to schedule regular time where she communicated with Him.

The Garden of Promise

Covered with prayer and Scripture, Meredith visualised meeting Jesus in a beautiful garden that she came to know as the Garden of Promise – so named for the promises of goodness and grace found liberally throughout the Scriptures.
This book is the result of these communications – an unforgettable and inspiring journey of encouragement and healing, where Jesus spoke new life into Meredith’s being. Her feelings of isolation lifted and she felt herself soothed, replenished and deeply loved by spending this time with the Lord Jesus Christ.
You, too, are invited to go on this journey through the pages of this book as you hear His voice and meet Jesus in the Garden of Promise.

More reviews here.


Meredith Swift was born and raised in rural Victoria, Australia, the fourth of five children. She has travelled and lived in many different places and now resides in sunny Townsville, North Queensland, Australia.

Meredith accepted Jesus Christ as her Lord and Saviour in 2010 and began establishing a close personal relationship with Him. In 2016, she wrote “Hearing His Voice – Meeting Jesus in the Garden of Promise” during a difficult and challenging season of her life, which included a divorce, resignation from her teaching job, relocation to a larger city and the mystery illness of her daughter who was bedridden for three months. Meredith leaned in especially closely to Jesus and communicated regularly with Him during this time. This book is the result of these communications.

Meredith has two daughters, three stepdaughters, a golden retriever and two cats. She enjoys participating in the life of her church, walking, travelling, reading and cooking.

It is her deepest desire that all should come to know the transforming love of the Lord Jesus Christ and invites you to hear His voice in the Garden of Promise.

24 Scripture Verses just for parents.

previous – I thought it was a Little Angel IV

24 Scripture Verses that help with parenting

My friend Jacob’s story

A good friend of mine passed away recently. His parents named him after the Biblical patriarch Jacob. You can find the story of Jacob the patriarch in Genesis 25 to 35.

My friend Jacob grew up in a small town in Germany. Jacob’s wife did not believe in God. Every time that I heard his wife speak about The Lord in a derogatory tone, Jacob would tell this story.

He would say, “Mimi, let me tell you about my Mum.”

“All young fellows in my town were recruited to fight in the (second world) war. None of us wanted to go but we weren’t given a choice.

My Mum said to me; “You’ll be right son, trust in The Lord.”

To be honest I cannot remember if I always said my prayers, there was so much happening. But I trusted in The Lord.
One by one I saw my mates around me perish. It was the most awful time in my life.

Out of 23 young lads that left our village, how many do you think returned home after the war?”

I shook my head and shrugged my shoulders, didn’t dare hazard a guess.

“Just me.” He said. “Just me, I was the only one that came back home whole.”

What could I say? I said, “Wow.”

Then he would look at me and say, “You know, my Mum prayed for me every single day that I would return home safely. I was gone for three years and every single day she prayed for me.

I’m not saying that the other Mum’s didn’t pray cause I don’t know about that. But I know for sure that my Mum prayed for me, every single day. I was the only one that came back home in one piece.”

He would then nod, shake his head, nod again and mumble under his breath, “I’m just saying.”

I like Jacob’s story. The Biblical one as well as my friend’s story. Both are stories of great faith.

Patriarch Jacob hung on to his faith in situations where it would have been easy to throw in the towel.
My friend Jacob also kept his faith in situations of great adversity. First, during the war and later also during his marriage with a wife who was hostile towards His God.

I never heard him oppose his wife but he spoke about his faith often.

Jacob’s story demonstrates to me that God is good and hears prayer.

Raising children in difficult situations

Some children are easier to raise than others. But most parents despair every now and then, wondering if it will all turn out for good. Jacob’s Mum unexpectedly had to hand her teenage son over to authorities who placed him in life threatening situations, again and again. What was she to do?  She couldn’t go with her son to protect him. So she prayed. I dare say that she did not pray every single day, but that she prayed throughout every single day and put her trust in The Lord.

Jacob’s Mum was not disappointed when she put her trust in The Lord.

I have never been disappointed either. Disappointed with my impatience, sure.
But disappointed in The Lord? Never!

Parents are people too

Parents are people too. Where did (and do) I find my strength when the children and I don’t agree on major issues such as house rules, work, health, contributions etc? Or when they insist on having it their way, when maturity versus immaturity turns ugly? Or when they go out into society and bring home devilish attitudes?

I’ve discovered that it is good practice to pray for the health and wellbeing of my children and family daily.

All throughout the Bible we’re told that God hears prayer and responds to our prayers.

Below I list some Scripture Verses that have helped me over the years whilst raising my children. These are not just Scripture Verses to pray over my children but this is God’s Word speaking encouragement and hope to parents.

God’s Word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. There are hundreds of Scripture Verses that encourage and strengthen me with whatever I do and wherever I go.

I selected some verses for parents needing encouragement. Who parents the parent?

God’s Holy Word for Parents


When your parents are not there ‘anymore’ to take care of you, the promise is that the Lord will take us up and teach us His way.

There are many Scripture Verses that are applicable for parenting and the following were specifically chosen for parents who feel challenged as they parent their children.

Godly Offspring

God's Holy Word for Parents Malachi 2:15

Pick your partner well. Pray over it.
Read Malachi 2 to understand that, The man who hates and divorces his wife, does violence to the one he should protect,” says the Lord Almighty.

So be on your guard, and do not be unfaithful.

I grew up in the flower power era. The word unfaithful did not even exist in those days.

God does not like it when people have affairs, move from one to the other and so on. He’s after Godly offspring. If you end up with not so Godly offspring you may be severely challenged whilst you’re raising your children.

For This Child I Prayed

Scripture Verses for Parents 1 Samuel 1:27-28

The Bible gives many examples of childless couples. In all the instances mentioned, after prayer, the women became pregnant. If God gives children to couples who ask for this, how much more will He help you to take care of this child? Think about it. You want a child, here it is. “You’re on your own now?” No, of course not.
Ask away because the Lord hears prayer and He will help you.

“Thank you Father, for helping me raise my child. Thank you for hearing my prayer, so that I can sleep soundly.”

Hannah’s prayer reminds me of the goodness of God and how children do not belong to us but to our Father.

You wove me in my Mother’s Womb

God's Holy Word for Parents Psalm 129:13

It is God who made us and our children. Clearly He knows me and my children better than I do myself.  Think about it… The heart, the veins, the bones, the flesh, the other organs, the hair, eyes, mouth, ears, nose and the spirit. God created all of this. He knows all about my children in a way that I cannot even imagine.
Thank you Lord!

For You formed my inward parts; You wove me in my mother’s womb. I will give thanks to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Wonderful are Your works, And my soul knows it very well …

Children are a heritage from the Lord

God's Holy Word for Parents Psalm 127:3

As I said before, children belong to The Lord.  A heritage, made in his image.

“Father, these children that I received from you, that are made in your image, they feel like a gift indeed and my life is so much richer because of them. As I grow alongside them and am becoming more patient, kind and compassionate, can you please help me correct whatever needs correcting in myself as well as my children?”

A Good Future

God's Holy Word for Parents Jeremiah 9:11

God’s Holy Word promises us a good future.
I never have had any preconceived ideas as to what I expect my children to do in life, for a job or relationship or whatever.

Together we plan according to the talents we were given. And all throughout our lives we’ve had ample opportunities to contribute to society in a meaningful way, whilst utilising our talents and following our passions.

I trust in the Lord for a good future for both my children and myself.

… of such is the Kingdom of Heaven

Matthew 19:14 Let the little children come to me

My Mum told me all the ‘Jesus’ stories’ from a very young age. I knew about all His miracles and parables before I even went to kindergarten. I’ve loved Jesus as long as I can remember because of my Mum’s love for Him.
Don’t deny your children because … of such is the Kingdom of Heaven.

I found great joy and pleasure in listening to those stories from an early age and sharing these with my children from the moment they were born.
Don’t allow anyone to refuse your children access to Jesus.

Talk to your children on a daily basis about our Father in Heaven and his Son Jesus.  

Walk humbly with The Lord

Walk humbly Micah 6:8

It is never too early to tell your children what God expects of them.

What does the Lord require of all of us? To do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God.

I don’t know about your children, but mine sure know all the right buttons to press to get me up and going and as such I have occasionally said things that I regret.
Don’t act in anger, but keep in mind when dealing with your children to always treat them justly, with mercy as you walk humbly with your God.

Honour your parents

Honour your parents Exodus 20:12

Honour your parents. Teach your children from an early age that they are to respect their elders. If you fail to do so, you’ll only have yourself to blame if they don’t obey you when they should.

Not only that. But if you don’t instil respect for authority in your children, you are neglecting this very important commandment and both you and your children will suffer as a result.

In the Bible, in the old days, Jewish families were encouraged to dob in their children if they were gluttons and drunks. This behaviour was considered so evil that the tribe wanted to get rid of these wayward kids altogether. I do not encourage this (God says, ‘Do not kill’), but these verses give us some perspective on what people of old expected of their children.

Nowadays we run to doctors and stand ready with pills and therapies if our precious ones ‘don’t behave.’ In those days, they were told to behave or thrown out of the tribe.

It is reasonable to expect respect and obedience from our children.

Keep His Commandments

Keep His Commandments Psalm 78:5-7

On that note, set house rules for your children. Give them clear guidelines to live by when at home as well as when out in the world.

If you know any better moral guidelines to live by than God’s Commandments, you can let me know about it. Till then, I tell my children to live by God’s Ten Commandments which are clearly spelled out in Exodus 20 and Deuteronomy 5 and  summed up as,

‘Love each other and do unto others, as you like them to do unto you.’

It is well. It shall be well.

It is well 2 Kings 4

Every now and then we all throw up our hands and are close to giving up. I should speak for myself here but, honestly I cannot count the times, where I thought, “Enough already, how much can a person take?”

This has happened with ill health and also with rebellious kids to the point where it appears as if they’re dead (to me), because I’ve exhausted all options and all that’s left for me to do, is cry to The Lord. I may not always have done the right things and as such believe that I deserve what I get, however God’s Word tells me that I have an advocate, Jesus who atoned for my sins.

Reality does not always match God’s Truth. Quite a while ago now I decided to speak out God’s Truth over the life of my children and myself. There have been many times that God’s Word pulled me through, and Scripture Verses such as this one comforted me and helped me over the rough patches.

The Bible tells the story of this ‘Great Woman, a Shunnamite.’ She was childless and received a child from God because of the kindness she had shown to one of his Prophets. When the child died, she did not break down and start wailing.
When people asked her, if all was OK, she responded with, “It shall be well.” She continued to say, “It is well,” till she saw the prophet and then ‘demanded’ that he would take care of the situation.

And Elisha, the prophet took care of it for her. He prayed to The Lord on her behalf and her child was brought back to life.
How do I apply this Scripture Verse to life? When everything is getting on top of me and seemingly too much to handle, I give it to The Lord and believe and say, “It’s all good.”

Sure, every now and then I may despair about a situation but I usually catch myself and remember this ‘Great Woman.’ Her child had died and she said, “It shall be well.” And it was. Her faith was rewarded.

Jesus said, “Be of good cheer,’ and I say Amen to that.

I will help thee

I will help thee Isaiah 41:10

No matter what I face in life, God is with me. He is with my children. Our Father will help me, He will help my children. There is no need to fear anything because the Lord is there; the promise is that He is with me and will help me.

I believe this promise with all my heart and this is what I have experienced also throughout my life. Sometimes I need to remind myself of this, because during the hustle and bustle of life I get distracted.

It is my job as a Mum to remind myself and my children on a daily basis that there is no need to fear anything because God is with us and will help us.

There is no fear in Love

There is no fear in love John 4:18

Some people are easier to love than others. Throughout the generations there have been people in my family who like to have us walk on eggshells around them, and for too many years I have. The thinly veiled threats can vary between, “I won’t like you if you cook anything other than my favourite dish” and, “If you upset me, or dare reprimand or oppose me, you may never see me again.”
I’m embarrassed to admit that I’ve bought into this for far too long and yielded and gave in and adjusted my behaviour to please those that insist on never being satisfied with any situation.

I’ve finally learned to, not only understand, but also live according to God’s promises and guidelines. One of the most powerful Scripture Verses in the Bible teaches us that,

Love has in it no element of fear; but perfect love drives away fear, because fear involves pain, and if a man gives way to fear, there is something imperfect in his love. Weymouth New Testament

Living according to these verses can make all the difference in your life.

Dear Father I choose never again to have another fearful relationship and from now on I will only maintain and cultivate loving relationships. This is how I will set the right example for my children.

Don’t give way to fear. Whatever your loved ones threaten you with: Don’t act or re-act out of fear when you engage with them. Instead act with love.

There is no fear in perfect love.

The above twelve Scripture Verses helped me much when raising my children.

Thank you to my friend Kathi who encouraged me to have a look at what God’s Word says about raising children.

With GOD Nothing Shall Be Impossible (3)

Elizabeth, Mary and Jesus all agree

‘With GOD nothing shall be impossible’

Remember Sarah and how she gave birth aged 80? Well, this was not a one-off event. A similar thing happened with Elizabeth, the cousin of Jesus’ mother Mary, as described in the Gospels. Elizabeth had no children either. Even though both Elizabeth and her husband Zachariah were good people; they were childless. WITH GOD NOTHING SHALL BE IMPOSSIBLE LUKE 1Zachariah prayed to the LORD and was promised  joy and gladness and a child, despite the fact that they were both quite old.

Mary was visited by an angel who told her that, ‘With GOD nothing shall be impossible,’ and she would receive a, ‘Holy thing … called the Son of God’.

Jesus told his disciples that faith the size of a mustard seed is enough to move mountains and in combination with prayer and fasting can even rebuke devils and cure lunacy. Jesus said that, ‘If ye have faith the size of a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.’

Prayer works miracles

After prayer, Elizabeth received a baby when she was well advanced in age. Mary said, ‘Blessed is she that believed: for there shall be a performance of those things which were told her from the Lord.’ This is when she found out that both she and her cousin were pregnant and would give birth. Mary was promised a virgin birth.

Jesus said that faith moves mountains and with faith, ‘Nothing shall be impossible to you.’

Those words are worth holding onto. If I had not believed in those words I possibly would not have expected to live. But these words are what kept me going. GOD’s promises, Jesus’ and Jeremiah’s prophesies, Sarah and Abraham, Elizabeth and Zachariah, and Mary’s victories is what kept me going. Because all of them told me that, ‘With God nothing shall be impossible.’ And I believed them then, and I believe them now.

Another excerpt

Following is another excerpt from My Story of Survival. Looking back, my heart fills with gratitude because of the kindness that has been shown to me by everyone around me, and especially My Creator, Our Father in Heaven.


The scans showed that my appendix had gone into hiding and all that could be seen were adhesions. Adhesions are like a type of scar tissue, or rather bands of fibrous tissue that can form between abdominal tissues and organs as a result of trauma such as surgery, infection, and for instance, a ruptured appendix.  Abdominal adhesions can cause tissues and organs in the abdominal cavity to stick together.

Before I came to hospital I had experienced many adverse reactions to antibiotics and my body vehemently protested against the antibiotics, which were administered to me through a drip. Everything got continuously expelled from both ends. As soon as it came in, it went out.

*** USEFUL FACT *** Side effects, allergies and reactions to antibiotics are not that unusual. Common side effects are rashes, diarrhea, abdominal pain, nausea/vomiting, hypersensitivity, dizziness. See NOTES.

After one sleepless night in the hospital, my eldest daughter phoned around during the next night to find appropriate help for me, because she could see that the treatment I received was not necessarily doing me a lot of good. This drew the attention of some other doctors, and I ended up with a team around my bed discussing what would be the best way to go.

For a little while morphine became my best friend, but just the same it took days for my tummy to stop resembling a plank, and the relentless heaving and nonstop emptying of my bowels was taking its toll. I had to get outta here.

We prayed

My girls prayed and I prayed. I had asked for the drip to be taken out, and it was agreed that the drip would be taken out to see how I would cope, and if it were possible for me to go home to recover further so that eventually I could be operated on and my appendix removed.

Raise me up please 

I was desperate to get out of the hospital and back home and prayed with all my might. In some church leaflet a little while ago I had read about the Lord lifting people up and raising them higher. To be truthful, I didn’t quite know what that meant, but I liked the sound of it, so I went, “Father, if you could raise me up and lift me higher and higher, please. High enough to get out of here and back home with my girls. Not beyond the clouds as yet, but high enough to get out of here, please.”

I quite liked the way that sounded and repeated this a few times, and then fell asleep. The next morning my drip was taken out, and, relishing my new-found freedom, I was waving my arms up and down beside the bed when I abruptly knocked some knob.

Curiosity got the better of me, and as I pressed the knob, the bed started to move up. I giggled and pressed again. Up it went. And again and again, in no time my bed was up so high that my hands touched the ceiling. My giggles became an unstoppable laugh.

Mary, the cleaning lady, came in without me noticing. All of a sudden I realised that she was cleaning beneath the bed. When she was finished she looked up at me and said, ‘You can come down again.’

I giggled a bit more and asked her, “Did you know that these beds go up so high?” She smiled at me and said, “Yep, we use it all the time. Although most of the new beds don’t go up as high as yours; you have one of the last of the older models.” And out she went to continue her round of cleaning.

Within a minute I was back touching the ceiling, and I was still there when my medical team came in a little while later. The Registrar, surrounded by nurses and a couple of other doctors, looked up and asked, “How are you feeling today?”

I grinned back at him, “On top of the world, high as a kite, I’ve never been better.”

I was back home the next day.

This book was a very interesting read. As a nurse, I found it difficult to believe that 10 ingredients could be healthy. But when you read her true story you can understand what she went through. My sister is struggling as a newly diagnosed celiac and I suggested she read it. If you have any dietary issues, you can find some pointers that might help. With all the dietary health issues out there you start to wonder what you can really eat–this book is can get you started.
on December 9, 2015
Having suffered food sensitivities for a number of years, I found Mimi’s story inspirational. It shows the resilience of the human body and the courageousness of a woman’s willingness to survive at all costs. For those who have tried all and still aren’t sure where to start, this book will be of great help.

24 Powerful Bible Promises – Free Scripture Card – W –

Wait on the Lord, be of good courage and He’ll strengthen thine heart.

Wait on the Lord, be of good courage

Action required

Many of the promises in the bible require some action for them to be fulfilled. At all times it is a good idea to wait on the Lord and be of good courage because the promise is that our heart will be strengthened in doing so.

The above Scripture quote was taken from Psalm 27 and the author of this Psalm is King David. King David experienced many problems throughout his life; some self-imposed and other problems not of his own doing.  Just like most of his.

When my father and my mother forsake me, then the Lord will take me up.
Teach me thy way, O Lord, and lead me in a plain path …

Deliver me not over unto the will of mine enemies …

I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.
Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart:
wait, I say, on the Lord.

King David had servants and armies to help him out, yet he said that he would have fainted if it wasn’t for his faith in the Lord, and it was the Lord he called upon when he was in a tight spot.

God hears prayer

I absolutely love this particular verse because I used to think that I have to sort all my troubles myself. Eventually life took me to such tight spots where I realised that I cannot sort everything out myself.

The other day I told one of my nearest and dearest that if the problem seems too big or too hard, Our Father in Heaven loves to hear about it.

“Relax,” I said, “God hears all prayer and I cannot think of one request that has not been answered for me.”

My loved one shot back at me with, “God has given you a brain to think for yourself, aren’t we supposed to be using this brain to sort out our own problems?”
Good comeback and I totally agree. Whenever there is any kind of problem, I do whatever I can to sort this myself or with the help of others. Sometimes, however, mere human effort does not seem to cut it. Those are the times that I am super grateful that My Creator has blessed me with a brain that is able to discern which problems to sort out myself and which problems to hand over to Him who knows and sees all. Meanwhile I just pray my little heart out.

24 Powerful Promises

I love all the promises, the words are so powerful. And the reality for me in my life is that all God’s promises are being fulfilled always. Whenever I call upon the Lord I get an answer. That’s why I am so keen to share because, before I started reading God’s Word and relying on His promises my success rate was very much a hit and miss affair. I explained in an earlier post why positive thinking does not work for me.

I’ll share some of my favourite Bible promises. You can let me know what your favourite promises are in the comments below.

Is any sick among you?
let him call for the elders of the church;

and if he hath committed sins,
they shall be forgiven him.

A new heart also will I give you,
and a new spirit will I put within you:
and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh,
and I will give you an heart of flesh.

and cause you to walk in my statutes,
and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them.

that the Father may be glorified in the Son.

and he shall give you another Comforter,
that he may abide with you for ever;

ABOUT THIS BLOG – We’re researching the truth of living forever according to GOD’s Holy Word; Sola Scripture. Popular opinion tells us that everyone who ‘believes’ and has ‘faith’ will go to heaven. Is this true? I decided to ask the prophets about the truth of it all.
