Expanding Horizons

God is expanding my horizons.....My life is in the hands of Jesus....

There are times despite repeated efforts of prayer,zeal and earnest longing and being fully in tune with the Lord's will,you fail.....It's hard to understand why?But God's ways are not my ways and His thoughts are not my thoughts.....But failures in life also may be happening for a purpose ...all which i can see in this verse.........

And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.
2 Corinthians 12:9,10 KJV

May the Lord's will be done in my life..Amen

This is something that was shared by a brother in church today,which really spoke to me....
The Lord created us and then we fell short of His glory and then He had to purchase us back with His own blood...So you see He owns us twice....He has every right on us yet He is so patient with us......For it is written........Romans 2:4- "Can't you see how kind He has been in giving you time to turn from your sin?"
Wow this is totally amazing...I mean Almighty God who is so infinitely wise,our creator,who owns us twice over......He is so patient..with us..we who crucified Him...Such love..Can it be found anywhere else...Doubtless no where else.....
What can we then as mere humans do??we can submit ourselves to the will of God..easier said than done but we can take hope from scripture that.....

Heb 12:4-8-" None of you have yet been hurt in your battle against sin.
But you have forgotten that the Scriptures say to God's children, "When the Lord punishes you, don't make light of it, and when he corrects you, don't be discouraged.
The Lord corrects the people he loves and disciplines those he calls his own."
Be patient when you are being corrected! This is how God treats his children. Don't all parents correct their children?
God corrects all of his children, and if he doesn't correct you, then you don't really belong to him."

We must subject ourselves to the Father's discipline so that we might earn a fruit of righteousness at the end of it.......

Heb 12:10-11- Our human fathers correct us for a short time, and they do it as they think best. But God corrects us for our own good, because he wants us to be holy, as he is.
It is never fun to be corrected. In fact, at the time it is always painful. But if we learn to obey by being corrected, we will do right and live at peace.

Oh,Lord....do not stop disciplining me!!I want to be you daughter forever....Even though it may seem painful for a season it will bring a fruit worth earning,worth the pain in the end....Give me the strength and courage to always remember that...Thankyou for loving me,Lord!! Amen.

Oh,what joy fills my heart.....Today was my baptism and one of the most significant events in my Christian walk....I am ready to be discipled and the Lord has already begun...truly there is no turning back....I was shivering when I went down into the waters but came out with a newness I have never felt...Truly it was a new birth like experience...I know my Lord is well pleased....Today all around the world people are celebrating friendship day....I am celebrating too but with my best friend...I am sold out for Jesus...I have given up the world's yoke and taken the Lord's instead....He is a wonderful God..my guide and leader....Oh,Lord...fill me with Thy Holy Spirit....I need your power.....I need you....May I never trust my own understanding from today onwards......I love you Lord...Make me a soldier,Lord.....a warrior for you.......Amen

"I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me."

Galatians 2:20 NASB

This is a beautiful song of promise that encouraged me......


1.Precious promise God hath given
To the weary passer-by,
On the way from earth to heaven,
“I will guide thee with Mine eye.”

“I will guide thee, I will guide thee,
I will guide thee with Mine eye;
On the way from earth to heaven,
I will guide thee with Mine eye.”

2.When temptations almost win thee,
And thy trusted watchers fly,
Let this promise ring within thee:
“I will guide thee with Mine eye.”

3.When thy secret hopes have perished
In the grave of years gone by,
Let this promise still be cherished,
“I will guide thee with Mine eye.”

4.When the shades of life are falling,
And the hour has come to die,
Hear thy trusty Leader calling,
“I will guide thee with Mine eye.”
