Seek Him first!

But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Matthew 6 : 33


Good morning, friends.

A king went to a forest in disguise. But he was not able to find his way out. Three young men passed near by. They recognized that it was their king and so they brought him back to his palace. He was so grateful to them and he wished to give them whatever they wanted. The first guy asked the king to give him silver. The king granted silver to him. The next guy wanted gold. The king happily gave him the gold he needed. Finally when the third guy's chance came, he asked the king to visit his home once in six months. The king was surprised, but then he agreed to visit him.

When he visited his home for the very first time, he felt that the way to his home was very bad. So he made plans to set it right and he did it. The next time when he visited, he felt that the house was not that sufficient, so he altered that guy's house. When he came for the third time, he thought it would be better for that guy to marry and so he searched for a bride in his own kingdom and he united them.

What does the above story tell? Does it not convey what Matthew 6 : 33 says? Yes, the first two guys wanted things from the king, whereas the third guy wanted the king's presence. This is what exactly we too need. The Lord is not a liar. He says that when we seek Him above all, He'll add all the other things. Why not try seeking His presence, instead of His blessings? When we focus on blessings, we may lose to focus on the Him. He is the ultimate source of everything and He'll bless us according to His riches in Heavens and He adds no more sorrows to it. No creation is above our Creator. Everything may vanish just like that, but the only thing that remains forever is the Pure Love of our Savior. When we follow Him, the grace and goodness will definitely follow us. We shouldn't run behind the grace and goodness, but behind the Lord and His unconditional, limitless love.

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 …
