Unused resource


You have not because you ask not. James 4:2



Good morning, friends.


Once upon a time there was a Miser who used to hide his gold at the foot of a tree in his garden; but every week he used to go and dig it up and gloat over his gains. A robber, who had noticed this, went and dug up the gold and decamped with it. When the Miser next came to gloat over his treasures, he found nothing but the empty hole. He tore his hair, and raised such an outcry that all the neighbors came around him, and he told them how he used to come and visit his gold. ‘Did you ever take any of it out?’ asked one of them. ‘Nay,’ said he, ‘I only came to look at it.’ ‘Then come again and look at the hole,’ said a neighbour; ‘it will do you just as much good.’

We went to a prayer seminar last weekend. There we heard the speaker telling this. The Prodigal son had the relationship with his father even when he was in a foreign country. But he didn't have fellowship with his father. We know that he longed to eat the food provided to pigs and was not even able to have it. The same thing holds for everyone of us. We have a loving Father. He is always there for us and we have a relationship with him all the time no matter how far we go astray. But only when we have the fellowship with him, we can utilize all that He has for us. Otherwise you and me have to yearn for the swine's food just like the Prodigal son did.


One such is prayer. We come across many prayer warriors whose prayer brought awesome changes. The power of prayer is not the result of the person praying. Rather, the power resides in the God who is being prayed to. Prayer has an immense power which we cannot imagine. The prayers of the saints can save their land, change the Government, heal the diseases, change the world, open the hearts, binds up the broken relationships, etc,... The Satan's biggest weapon is to stop the saints from praying. When we pray, we are utilizing all the Godly weapons against satan, but when we don't, we are surrendering those powerful weapons to satan. The power of prayer should never be underestimated because it draws on the glory and might of the infinitely powerful God of the universe! So what are we going to do? Having just the relationship with God without the access to anything or having the true fellowship with Him to use everything of Him for His glory? Remember, Wealth unused might as well not exist.

My pregnancy journey

I got married in Aug 2013, but never got to see positive Urine pregnancy test. NEVER! I won't say I was greatly disappointed as I was also waiting for few things between me and husband to settle down slowly and it took a while. Once things became alright everyone started expecting and wherever we went we got plenty of advice and tips. We were hesitant to take Sunday's classes due to the initial issues between us, but somehow for the past two years we have been teaching little children every Sunday. 
In the meantime, we tried multiple doctors (no big treatments) and were bored with the same repetitive scans and tests, which reported no issues as such. The last scans taken in 2017 reported I had little harmless cysts and they would take time to resolve and the doctor would stop even the few tablets I had to take on 5 days at the start of my cycle. I would have to be honest here. My cycle - can vary from 26 days to 60 days too. You can hardly guess what my fertile days are, includ…

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…

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…
