Expanding Horizons

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

Whatever your cross,
whatever your pain,
there will always be sunshine,
after the rain ....
Perhaps you may stumble,
perhaps even fall,
But God's always ready,
To answer your call ...
He knows every heartache,
sees every tear,
A word from His lips,
can calm every fear ...
Your sorrows may linger,
throughout the night,
But suddenly vanish,
in dawn's early light ...
The Savior is waiting,
somewhere above,
To give you His grace,
and send you His love...
Whatever your cross,
whatever your pain,
"God always sends rainbows ....
after the rain ...

This is something that encouraged me...... How true that the Lord always gives what you need...

I asked for strength—and God gave me difficulties to make me strong
I asked for wisdom—and God gave me problems to solve
I asked for prosperity—and God gave me brain and brawn to work
I asked for courage—and God gave me dangers to overcome
I asked for love—and God gave me opportunities
I received nothing I wanted—I received everything I needed
My prayer has been answered


Dear Lord,help me to be staisfied whenever you give me what i need even though if it may not
be what I want....Amen

Lately the Lord has been pressing upon my heart the need to present my life as a living sacrifice...
Rom 12:1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service

Rom 12:2 And be not fashioned according to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, and ye may prove what is the good and acceptable and perfect will of God

How true it is indeed..the need of the hour in my life....as a youth with conflicting choices and desires..I would be totally free if I have realised that my life is a living sacrifice...We recently
in our youth meeting studied the life of sadhu Sundar Singh.....What an amazing life that man of
God lead....He at the age of 16 understood the meaning of taking up the cross and in a very true sense left "ALL" for Christ's sake. There is true growth only through pain. A Christianity that
doesn't cost me any thing is a false Christianity....... Truly in the word's of Sadhu Sundar Singh, " Diamonds do not dazzle with beauty unless they are cut.When cut the rays of the sun
fall on them and make them shine with wonderful colours! So when we are cut into shape by
the cross we shall shine as jewels in the Kingdom of God"

Dear Lord...I pray thet never may anything of my self ever hinder the working of the cross in
my life....Give me the strength to endure and bear the shame for your Name's sake.Help me
to present my life as a sacrifice in your hands..Amen
