On-Again, Off-Again
Its been an on-again, off-again situation. For the last two to three months I have not been consistent in my writing. Frankly because I have reached my 100th post milestone. Also, because I was running out of steam. Not so much in terms of whether I have anything to write, but more of the fact that I don’t see any benefits in the foreseeable horizon.

Foreseeable Horizon
And of course that is where my problem lies. Foreseeable horizon are usually not seen when pursuing a cause. If it’s so foreseeable then everyone would have done it. If it’s so foreseeable then it would not be so special. If it’s so foreseeable then it would not require me to grow. If it’s so foreseeable then I would could just have relied on my humanly abilities. And if it’s so foreseeable then I would not need God.

It is Beyond Me
Because this endeavor is beyond my comfort zone, it is beyond what I currently know now, it is beyond my current abilities. And because of these very reasons, fear began to set in. I began to have fears of what if I did this and it did not work. What if all my efforts are leading me down the wrong path. What if I work myself into a tight spot? What if…

Starting Today
And that’s where I read about this in the book, “20,000 Days and Counting“:

[blockquote]”I believe I am always divinely guided”.
“I believe I will always take the right turn of the road.”
“I believe God will always make a way where there is no way.”[/blockquote]

With God = I’m + Possible!
Essentially, there are no difficulties that I cannot overcome, as with God, all things (including those beyond the unforeseeable horizon) are possible.

Just like in Philippians 4:13 (NLT), “For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength.”

And friends, I am back, with God’s help, to continue to bring the Living Word to you and I hope you will follow me by picking up your own cross daily.

Prayer
Father, we cannot see beyond the foreseeable horizon what’s possible and what’s not possible; but Your horizon is infinite. We seek Your help in guiding us in this endeavor as we continue to carry our own cross daily. We need your help. In Jesus name, Amen.
