Do yourself a favor!!!

"There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus ..." Romans 8:1

Good morning, friends. Today let us read an incident told by Dr. David (Paul) Yonggi Cho.

One beautiful couple met Dr. Cho. The wife (let us say 'X') looked so depressed. The holy spirit reminded Dr. Cho to ask her about her past. But she refused to reveal it. When Cho told that he would help only if she could open up her heart about her past, she started pouring out. After her parents died at her early years, she was brought up by one lady who had a daughter who got married and when she was away from her husband for her delivery, this X and her sister's husband fell in love with one another and crossed their limits. After that incident, her sister's husband called her again and again and she too cooperated as she was afraid that he would leak things out. Later she got fed up with his relationship and she left him far away and started to lead a new life with a new job, a good husband and loving children. Everything went out good, but this lady was very depressed as she got reminded of that man who had wrong relationship with her whenever her husband loved her. Whenever her children hugged and loved her, she was guilty that she was not at all worthy of their love. When Cho heard that, he asked her to simply forgive herself for what happened.

Now let us read something about the conversation of Mr. R.T. Kendall with Joyce Meyer.

Mr. R.T. Kendall says, "The devil loves it when we are living in condemnation. When you're not forgiving yourself you're helping the devil do his job. Because he is called as an accuser of the brothers in Revelation chapter 12. So when you're accusing yourself, the devil can just go off for a vacation, because you're doing his job for him. We're commanded to forgive ourselves by believing what Jesus Christ did on the cross. When you forgive others, you're giving a gift which they don't deserve it. Don't feel guilty of what you did in the past. I say, give yourself a gift of forgiveness which you don't deserve. This is what the Lord wants you to do. Just set yourself free."

Only in this way you can feel the joy and peace our Savior has for you. Unless you forgive yourself remembering the Savior on the cross and his cleansing power, you are easily prone to devil's work, just like our body is viable to any disease when our immune system collaps when the WBC count drops. So please don't give satan a chance.

Be Beautiful!!!

And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased. Hebrews 13 : 16
This is a great story that I have read on the internet. 

When the house lights dimmed and the concert was about to begin, the mother returned to her seat and discovered that her son was missing. She took him to the concert to show her appreciation toward his progress on the piano lessons. Suddenly, the curtains parted and spotlights focused on the impressive Steinway on stage. In horror, the mother saw her little boy sitting at the keyboard, innocently picking out “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star.” At that moment, the great piano master made his entrance, quickly moved to the piano, and whispered in the boy’s ear, “Don’t quit, keep playing.” Then leaning over, Paderewski reached down with his left hand and began filling in a bass part. Soon his right arm reached around to the other side of the child and he added a running descant. Together, the old master and the young novice tra…

When love touches you!

Warm greetings!! I have been quite busy with my little one. Yes, I have been blessed with a baby girl after a wait of more than 3.5 years and she is 3 months old today, by the pure grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. Please keep her (Janice) in your prayers.
“Now that you have purified yourselves by obeying the truth so that you have sincere love for each other, love one another deeply, from the heart.“ 1 Peter 1: 22
As I read this verse, this morning, I was carried away in my own thoughts as to how I can love from the depth of my heart. Is it even possible? Peter once behaved as an unfaithful one to Jesus to whom he was so close for about 3.5 years, when he denied Jesus to the core. He even cursed him as he was scared for his own life, and now it is quite funny to hear about deep love from such a person, by the way. J
After my baby girl was born, to be honest, I could not say if I really loved her. Because my mind was completely occupied by recovery, long days and nights, sleep deprivat…

God of second chances!

For with God nothing shall be impossible. Luke 1 : 37
Do you feel that you are going nowhere just because you find yourself stuck with things that bother you? Then this is absolutely for you.
Yesterday, I was surprised to see Siddhu smiling at me early in the morning at around 6:20 AM.  He is 5 years old now and I live in his home as a paying guest. He held my hand and took me downstairs to show me a thick piece of paper on which he had cut and pasted Angry Birds’ green pigs. (Angry Birds is a game in which the players use a sling shot to launch the birds at pigs, with the intent of destroying them.) He had cut these out of the fruit gummies wrapper I had given him the previous day. He also colored the entire sheet of paper in green. While I stood, surprised to see how cute that was, he again took me to the kitchen, opened a cupboard, and gave me a yellow fruit gummy. He had never done that before. I told him that I hadn’t even brushed my teeth yet. He replied, “That’s fine. Take it up …
