"When u know how much I love you..."

One of the things I really struggle with is jealousy and envy....

I hope that surprises some of you! *lols* I hope it's not that obvious!

It feels to me often that people are better than me, and I get really competitive and try to be better than them.... but I fail....

This is something I really started desperately calling out to God to address in my life. I didn't want to feel jealous of people around me anymore!

And then God softly whispered to me, "When you know how much I love you, and how much I accept you, you won't feel jealous and envious anymore."

That was such a surprise and a revelation to me!

When I examined my heart I realised the Lord was right. In my heart, I didn't feel loved and accepted by Him. I always felt I was not good enough and that feeling made me jealous and envious of those around me who seemed to me 'good enough'.

So I asked Him to show me, again, how much He loved me and accepted me.

And my God is unfolding His love to me every day since.

I love you too, God!

Like oil running over....

Lord, I've poured out until I have nothing left ... My jar is dry ...

Fill me up again, Lord, so that I can go out and pour Your oil once more ....

Be Magnified

Everyone is talking about the Economic Crisis lately... everyone's anxious.

I was too. But God has been steadily reminding me of His love and faithfulness ....

This was one of my tender God's reminders:-

[Verse 1]
I have made You too small in my eyes
Oh Lord, forgive me
And I have believed in a lie
That You are unable to help me.
But now, Oh Lord, I see my wrong
Heal my heart and show Yourself strong
And in my eyes and with my song
Oh Lord, be magnified

Be magnified, Oh Lord
You are highly exalted
And there is nothing You can't do
Oh Lord, my eyes are on You
Be magnified,
Oh Lord, be magnified

[Verse 2]
I have leaned on the wisdom of men
Oh Lord, please forgive me
And I have responded to them
Instead of Your light and Your mercy
But now, Oh Lord, I see my wrong
Heal my heart and show yourself strong
And in my eyes and in my song
Oh Lord be magnified
