A Life of Faith.. New start..

I was praying a few minutes ago asking God for faith and encouragement... there are major changes in my life right now.. and i was pleading for eyes to see and ears to hear from The Father.

My prayer was I asked God to let His will be done here in earth as it in heaven.. to give me courage to face the new, help me through the storm of uncertainties and to believe in Him and not my circumstances. After pleading for faith.. Oswald Chamber's revelation (as usual) spoke to me..

"Living a life of faith means never knowing where you are being led. But it does mean loving and knowing the One who is leading. It is literally a life of faith, not of understanding and reason—a life of knowing Him who calls us to go. Faith is rooted in the knowledge of a Person, and one of the biggest traps we fall into is the belief that if we have faith, God will surely lead us to success in the world." I have plans yet a surrendered plan to God is a better plan than crying out to God for my plans to be blessed! HIs will be done here on earth.. and HIs will is to change my character.. to trust HIm alone!


Hay a life in Christ is never boring, always something new.. good or bad He promised He will never leave me or forsake me!


God bless everyone!

God's plan

A good friend of mine sent me this message to encourage me..


GOD'S PLAN

Some things are beyond planning.
And life doesn't always turn out as planned.
You don't plan for a broken heart.
You don't plan for a failed business venture.
You don't plan for an adulterous husband
or a wife who wants you out of her life.
You don't plan for an autistic child.
You don't plan for spinsterhood (being single)
You don't plan for a lump in your breast.

You plan to be young forever.
You plan to climb the corporate ladder.
You plan to be rich and powerful.
You plan to be acclaimed and successful.
You plan to conquer the universe.
You plan to fall in love - and be loved forever.

You don't plan to be sad.
You don't plan to be hurt.
You don't plan to be broke.
You don't plan to be betrayed.
You don't plan to be alone in this world.
You plan to be happy. You don't plan to be shattered.
Sometimes if you work hard enough, you can get what you want.
But MOST times, what you want and what you get are two different things.

We, mortals, plan. But so does God in the heavens.
Sometimes, it is difficult to understand God's plans especially when His plans are not in consonance with ours.
Often, when God sends us crisis, we turn to Him in anger.
True, we cannot choose the cross that God wishes us to carry,
but we can carry that cross with courage knowing that God will never abandon us nor send something we cannot cope with.
Sometimes, God breaks our spirit to save our soul.
Sometimes, He breaks our heart to make us whole.
Sometimes, God allows pain so we can be stronger.
Sometimes, God sends us failure so we can be humble.
Sometimes, God allows illness so we can take better care of ourselves.
Sometimes, God takes everything away from us so we can learn the value of everything He gave us.

Make plans, but understand that we live in God's way.
The full control of your and my life is HIS.
