A Leap Of Faith


When God gently whispers and calls for obedience to His voice, 

When He is urging you to trust Him and take a leap of faith 

And when you finally take that Crazy LEAP, 

Not knowing for certain what the uncertain holds in your future

That’s when He says

When I lead , I will provide

 

I heard this saying once 

The will of God will never take you to a place , where the Grace of God cannot keep you 

Keep trusting God and keep up with your journey ! Your one leap could be an answered prayer of many years . Your one leap could be the key to the Abundant Life God intends you to have. Your one leap could change your world in Christ. It takes action from your end, to make that ONE LEAP !! 

Remember, when He leads He provides 

Stay Blessed In Him💞

Repost : ‘Keep Walking ON’ in Christ 

I can’t believe this !! I had a similar revelation from the Lord on ‘Walking Through ‘ and same scriptures / examples of people from the Word .. I posted on my blog on 9th June 2017

I believe the Lord is encouraging us to hold on and keep ‘Walking Thru’ as in the walking is the breakthrough 
Amen

The NORM in the NORMAL – FAITH LIKE ABRAHAM

the norm in the normal_faith like abraham_pic 

We all have dreams BIGGER than ourselves. Aspirations that go far beyond the skies. Hope that is never-ending because of the God we trust in.

YET most often we surrender our thinking to this one little thought that hinders and handicaps us from stepping forward and stepping out

 ‘I am just a normal person, trying to live my life ‘or ‘I am just a normal person who has a normal life of going to work to earn my living, supporting my family and just trying to live a calm life ‘

And in the midst of living our ‘NORM’ al lives, we get side tracked from the very purpose that God created us. There is a potential risk of missing out on the calling of God and wondering ‘WHY,  ‘WHAT HAPPENED ‘ and ‘ MY LIFE IS RIGHT WHERE I STARTED ‘

There are many characters in the Bible who were ‘ NORMAL’ men and women just like one of us. They are no different from us in that they also faced the hardest and toughest battles of life. They were also faced with giants in their life that we all have to deal with. For some it is idolatry, for some it is adultery, for some it is unexpected life incidents like miscarriages, divorce, loss of loved ones, for some it’s life transitions like moving from their home country or changing jobs to a totally new area , for some it is finding life partner or becoming a parent.

What made them stand out in their lives is the choices that made in their ‘NORMAL’ life when they were faced with situations. They were obedient to the Word of God and willing to break the ‘NORM’ in the ‘NORMAL’ so they can live their faith out in a way that glorifies God. They trusted God , relied on Him and waited on Him to fulfil all their heart’s desires.

NORM is defined as something that is usual, typical, or standard.

 In the coming weeks, we will be looking at  some of the Biblical characters in this context on how they overcame the NORM in the NORMAL. Let’s keep in mind that these were just NORMAL people in their day and age, just like us in this modern age.

Transitioning through a Transition

Going through some sort of transition in your life ?

I came across this during my quiet time. Hope this encourages you with strength for the journey now and ahead , just like it did for me!

Joseph spent years in jail, and yet it was all made beautiful in His time. It’s only a short breath of a life we live, so let’s have faith that it’s not the end.’

Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens
For there is a time for everything under the heavens.

WALKING ON THE WATERS

img_2325

ISAIAH 43:2 (NLT)

When you pass through the waters, I will be with you

When you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you

When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned

The flames will not set you ablaze

 

Jesus is a God of ALL seasons. He promises to be with you through the thick and thin of life, through all your happy and sad moments, through all your hurts and disappointments. All His promises are true, yes and Amen

I have been meditating on this scripture for the past 1 week and I got a totally different revelation on them which I would love to share with you

The above verses are one of my favorites to cling onto ,especially during the tough moments. The calming re-assurance that God is with us, for us and will take us through the situation is all we need to know during our rough battles with life

Whilst we do have the re-assurance that God is with us ALL the time, if we closely look at the scripture God wants us to DO something in the midst of the trials and temptations. That’s right, God calls for ACTION not mere faith

Bible tells us in James 2:17 Faith without actions is dead

I want to highlight 3 things that can help and encourage you not just RISE ABOVE the waters but also  WALK ON the most toughest raging storm in your life

Overcoming Task Related Stress

‘ Lord , I have so much to do but got only very little time . What do I do ?’

img_2150-2

Do you relate to this overwhelming feeling? When you have so much to do and don’t know where to start. And as time passes, it starts overwhelming you as your daily tasks list just does not come down.

As a busy working parent of a nearly four year old toddler, keeping up with my ever changing IT career through constant studying, following my passion of serving in church, you can only imagine the length of my to-do list. I seem to have so many things on my to-do list and I must admit sometimes I just procrastinate that eventually I end up doing it just before the deadline but the stress involved leading upto the task completion is just not worth it

I love it that God is not just interested in my spiritual life, how I live, love and serve others.. He is also interested in the little things of my life and is ready to help me whenever I ask

2 days back I was a bit overwhelmed with my to-do list. To be precise I came home after work, spent about 2 quality hours with my daughter before putting her to bed. I had some church work to be completed that I have left it a bit long. I also had some final touch of my study assignments to be submitted and I had about 2 hours to complete them ALL before I hit bed to get some decent sleep for another long day at work the next day. I cannot leave my pending tasks for another day as I have already gotten past the deadline. Clearly I was a bit overwhelmed.

I looked up and a casual conversation with God began.

‘ Lord , I have so much to do but got only very little time . What do I do ?’

I love it that God understand me so well. Being a person of illustration myself, He speaks to me mostly through pictures.

God showed a hungry me on one side. He then showed me a picture of a big plate, a plate full of food including starters, main and desert all in one place. The food plate was HUGE. I felt Him saying ‘eat’ and me in that picture I ate the starters first, the main next and then finally the desert. I was well fed. God asked me’ why didn’t you eat the reverse way… the desert first, the starters second and finally the main ?’ . I told God’ If I do that, my tummy would hurt and I would still end up being hungry after some time as the order of my eating is wrong’

I felt God telling me it’s exactly the same way with you accomplishing your daily tasks. If you keep doing things without organising and without order, eventually you have to give into the spirit of tiredness and frustration as nothing is going to get done at the end of the day.

God cares even about our simple silly to-do lists and I believe He wants us to think strategically to get them done without burning all our energy into it
Through this experience, I put together 4 P’s that will be help to accomplish any task . These helped me and I hope it helps you too.
1. PRAY ➡️ ✝️🙏🏻for strength and wisdom to accomplish the to-do list. With Him all things are possible

2. PREPARE ➡️ 📝🗒 The to-do list , visual listing of things to do helps process things quicker in your brain giving a reality check

4. PRIORITISE ➡️ 📌The entire list , task by task, some tasks might not be needed to be addressed immediately

5. PLAN ➡️ 🕟 Choose the best part of your day to knock them down

Now my friends, set into action with this promise from God. Declare it over yourselves and don’t let stress take away your peace. Invest that time and energy into your family and things that you love❤️

Philippians 4:13 (NIV)

13 I can do all this through him who gives me strength.

Dear God,

Thank You for taking interest in even the little things of life and teaching me to live a stress free life. I pray for strength to do all my tasks today and wisdom to prioritise them.

In Jesus Name Amen

Stay Blessed In Him💞
