About This Blog

So Abraham rose early in the morning and took bread and a skin of water, and putting in on her shoulder, he gave it and the boy to Hagar, and sent her away.Then she departed and wandered in the Wilderness of Beersheba.And the water in the skin was used up,and she placed the boy under one of the shrubs………….Then God opened her eyes, and she saw a well of water.And she went and filled the skin with water, and gave the lad a drink.
                                                                                           Genesis 21:14-19

 

 We are well familiar with the above passage.How many times in our lives have we felt this feeling of wilderness?All the provisions that we had before we started our journey is used up and we are in a state of total loss,both spiritually and physically.Wilderness can just drain your energy and you long for something to quench your thirst.The feeling of wilderness can happen in our spiritual lives too.The problems or the circumstances of life just drains your spiritual strength sometimes.Everything you had can be used up.During those times, only Jesus and His words can quench your thirst.Bible says that if you drink the water that He gives you, you’ll not be thirsty again. John 4:13

I had these wilderness experiences many times in my life and the Word of God alone has helped me.The idea of this blog is to provide you with thoughts from the bible which I believe will help you in your everyday life.My earnest desire and prayer is that you will be guided to the ultimate fountain of living water…JESUS

About Me

 I am Rani John, a wife and a mother; more than that, a child of God. I grew up as a christian and had all the opportunities to know Christ even in my young age. As I grew older,God created circumstances in my life to know Him more and now both as an individual and as a family we are growing in Him.

Even at a small age , my earnest desire was to do something for God and I believe that God will use me according to His mighty purpose.My prayer is that God will use me and this blog to quench the thirst of many through simple thoughts and inspirations.

God Bless You

Rani John

  1. I am so thrilled to see the blog usig the gift God etrusted you for His glory being revealed through. For everything GOD has a definite purpose, but we don’t see it in th beginning. On the run we see the fruits or reason and then we say ‘yes that’s why it happened’. May God strengthen you and us you daily.

    • Thanks you so much….Keep praying for this blog…My prayer is that many should be led one step closer to Jesus in their everyday walk with Him.

  10. Good morning Rani,

    Thank you for your labor in encouraging God’s children. To know Jesus and know that each morning as we awaken, we have the blessed hope of His glorious return is such a peace that only one that has known Jesus personally can understand. Your heart please our Lord.

    May Jesus keep chiseling my so that someone will see Christ in me,

    Carry on good soldier of the Lord,

    Rick

  11. Hey Rani!

    I just found your email in my spam folder and wanted to respond and let you know how much your encouraging comments and prayers blessed me.

    I know that the Lord has the final word and we are standing on the promises of God in faith believing for a miracle baby!! And you can believe that when that happens I’ll be rejoicing and shouting it from the rooftops and posting about His goodness with alot of photos to show the evidence of His Faithfulness!!! Glory to God!

    Once again, Sister – I so appreciate your encouraging words and prayers!!

    Glad to have found your site. I’m not familiar with WordPress and couldn’t find a way to “follow” – But I’ll be visiting from time to time and hope you’ll stop my place for a visit too!

    Sweet Blessings!
    Jackie

    Wow! What impact you are making through your blog and meditation. All the glory to God for such a talent placed in you. God’s purpose about us is different than we think and plan. May God richly and abundantly use you for changing so mnay lives in the dry desert with spings from HEAVEN.

    • Thank you so much for your encouraging words…My prayer is that God will use me more each day for His Kingdom

      Do remember us in your prayers..
      Prayers
      Rani

  15. As I was searching in Google on the topic Faith in JESUS..i tumbled on this article of yours..”Your Faith Has Made you Whole” I was hooked on to the article. I firmly believe that JESUS is the image of “God our Father” and JESUS is God (The Way, The Truth and Life)..I know that…with JESUS in the boat ..I can smile at the Storm..I will keep on visiting for your new articles.

    Best Regards,
