Hi! I’m Rachel.
Welcome to The Many Splendored Thing! Join me in my quest to be a true disciple of Jesus and to celebrate His presence in our world.
I’m in my mid twenties and I live in New York with my husband, far away from the rest of my family in India. This blog is, essentially, a chronicle of my baby steps in discipleship – in learning to hear God’s voice and to obey Him.
The words of apostle Paul in Philippians 3: 13,14 perfectly sums up the way I’m trying to live and therefore captures the spirit of this blog:
“No, dear brothers and sisters, I have not achieved it, but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us.”
So, welcome again. I hope you find something of value here, something that helps you see and love Jesus a little better.
