5 Minute Friday - Beyond

Here goes:  unscripted, unedited (scary stuff):

To be honest, thinking of something earth-shattering for this word seems Beyond me but here is what comes to mind:
What is beyond sin? - death
What is beyond salvation? - everlasting life in eternity with Christ

What is beyond forgiveness? - peace, hope, joy
What is beyond the present? - faith in the future

What is beyond pride? - a fall (flat on your face)
What is beyond humility? - God raises you up

What is beyond doing things in your own strength? - frustration, confusion
What is beyond trusting God to work in your circumstance? - victory

God goes way beyond what we could ever imagine or dream up.  His extra mile is out of this world:
John 3 v 16:  For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
Jesus, going the extra mile!
Eph 3 v 20-21:  Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen

That's what I came up with for my 5 minute Friday.  
God bless

  2. What a lovely post Tracy! I love your list. Thank you for those very uplifting bible quotations.

    Hope you have a nice weekend.

  3. Pft! I did this in much less time.
    Going above and BEYOND is delivering a hand knitted baby blanket to a friend who lives totally out of your way just because she asked you to.

  4. Those are some great thoughts! One of my favorites is:

    What is beyond trusting God to work in your circumstance? - victory

    Yes, we have victory in Christ!! Amen!

  5. Love your post...and your blog! Blessings to you this day.

  6. I love when you said, "God goes way beyond what we could ever imagine or dream up. His extra mile is out of this world." So true!!!

  7. I think you did a great job! Very profound thoughts this morning :)

  8. I like what you did with this word, Tracy. I want to choose the things God has for me beyond.

  9. That was very good. I loved it.

  10. Such truth we can share in "beyond" can't we?!?!? Thanks you for writing!

    Also an "beyond" participant! :)

  11. Tracy,
    I like the way you spelled out the places beyond can take us....depending on what choices we make.

    I especially loved the scripture you chose: Eph 3 v 20-21...this is one of my favorites.

    Happy weekend to you!

  12. Great post, Tracy. I loved your approach this week. God takes us beyond in so many ways and so many areas!
