God's Surprises

Being a disciple of Christ means the surrender on one's whole life to the Master in absolute submission to His sovereignty.

And it is when we are out of options that we are most ready for God's Surprises.
(M. Lucado)

Are you ready for God's surprises?
Yeah, we often hear a resounding yeas to this query.
But are we really ready?

For God to make His move, we ought to be in complete surrender!
Yielding to God's design for our lives.
Sometimes, we are too busy telling God what we want Him to do for us. And sometimes, we fail to see God's hands working through the circumstances in our lives simply because we are afraid to let go... of our own desires, and of our own wishes. and because we are too busy pursuing our own directions.

As the old cliche goes
"let go and Let GOD"
Only when we are not holding on to anything will we be ready to receive
God's promises!

Allow God to surprise you.
i know you'll be amazed and awed with what He can do.
Godbless everyone!

Many are the plans in a man's heart, but it is the LORD's purpose that prevails. - Proverbs 19:21

I have encountered this verse during one of our household. I am aware but not knowledgeable that there is such a verse in the Bible.

Yes, God is indeed full of surprises in our lives. Unfortunate things come my way, and these may be inevitable or not. But what is more important is that through the ashes, rises a phoenix. A bright and fiery mythical bird that is fierceful yet beautiful. I may not be comparable to a phoenix, but in a metamorphical way, I may be similar.

So many things happened to me. Some of the painful things inflicted upon my naive and hapless soul managed to wreck my heart and gave me powerful insights. True, that I sometimes question God why, and I do not deserve such things. But then again, it has been said that God does not punish a wrongdoing with wickedness. That I know I cannot and will never dare to prove. The truth is, people who live according to God's will are prone to evil. And also those who are away from Him cannot be saved from the other realities of the world.

The goodness of a person is innate in a man's heart. That I strongly agree upon. No matter how cruel the world can be, if one desires and works towards a better life for himself, and that of others, then nothing is impossible.

To quote from Paolo Coelho, The Zahir:
"If someone is capable of loving his partner without restriction, then he is manifesting the love of God. If the love of God becomes manifest, he will love his neighbor. If he loves his neighbor, he will love himself. If he loves himself, then everything returns to its proper place."
