Give thanks!

Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus. 1 Thessalonians 5 : 16 - 18


Good morning, friends. This is one thing which I wanted to share with you since a few months.

As I’m the one who usually work in a project which needs a single resource, I didn’t have any chance to mingle with others. The Lord gave me two friends, because of whom I’m in touch with at least a few around me. I have spent most of my time only with them apart from my work. All of a sudden they both were asked to leave their jobs. We all were shocked to the core. You all know how tough it is to get a good job at the time of recession. We had no other go, but praying. Where else could we go? In my fellowship we started praying continuously and in the same time, we encouraged them both, telling them that the God is their provider and no one else. I personally believe that God won’t allow their children losing their jobs, unless He has some better plans in store for them. Our prayers and the support we gave really encouraged them a lot, I believe. Faith without action is dead. We also started looking if any of our friends’ company has any offer. Do you know what we prayed? We always prayed that they two should have a job at the day they leave this company. Sometimes we too had some unbelief, when we looked the situations around us. Still we didn’t give up. We prayed and we praised God for He would give them a job and strengthen them. You will not even believe if I say this. One company had an immediate offer and they needed experience people’s CV to be dropped in. When I got a call from the first one, I thought she was just called for an interview. But to my surprise, I heard that she was asked to join the company. The next one too had another job in a good company and I’m the one who was her reference from her previous company. :) They both are now deployed into the projects and they are getting paid more than what they had earlier.

Now tell, is He not faithful? He listened to our prayers and answered us and placed them exactly before they left this company. I praise God for that even now. Now they both are happy and this would have definitely increased their faith. Are you afraid of something today? Are you thinking that you have no other way out of your troubles? Be of good cheer. Pray continuously and give thanks for He’s going to make all things possible for you. Give thanks for all the closed doors in your life, for He is going to open them up after which nothing/no one can shut them. Friend, you may think that the problem is yours, but I strongly say that the problem is not ours anymore. It is His’. We don’t need to fight the battle ourselves. He’ll fight the battle for us wonderfully, amazingly in a way which we can never even think of. He is Almighty. His ways are always awesome. Don’t give up when you face problems. Let the problems drive you closer to Jesus! There is always hope in Him. He’ll never reject the brokenhearted. Above all, He loves you. He’s there to collect your tears in His bottle. None of your tears will go waste. They’ll all be answered. You can trust this. Recession has nothing to do with God’s children!!! Amen!!!

Prayer request: Please read http://www.rightwingwatch.org/category/individuals/marc-grizzard and pray about it. Don’t forget!

Jesus' Word 1 and 2 on the cross

Hi all,

Friends, as this is the Holy week, let us see something about what Jesus spoke when He was on the cross. Yesterday we had a meeting where we shared the Word of God based on these seven Words. There can be n number of emails that can be sent. But I try to make things short. Read a verse and then take a break and then proceed, if it is too long.

Word 1:

“Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they do.” Luke 23:34

The people who shouted, “Hosannah!” and who prepared Him way on Palm Sunday, started shouting, “Nail Him on the cross” a few days later. He was beaten up like anything. People spitted on Him. They slapped Him. They made lot on His garments. They made Him bear a heavy cross. He was completely ill-treated by them.

Jesus – is the one who forgives the sins of the people. The primary purpose of Jesus to leave the place of the highest glory to the worst world is to forgive our sins. He insisted the same when He was on the cross when He was completed rejected and despise…

The Alphabet Prayer

“Now then go, and I, even I, will be with your mouth, and teach you what you are to say.” Exodus 4 : 12

Good morning. I was deeply burdened to share you a message for which I searched a short story. Unbelievably, God allowed me to read this story and yes it conveys exactly what I wanted to share today. I bet you would be inspired by this story. Every child comes with the message if you carefully notice what they do. Here is the story for you.

A little shepherd boy was watching his sheep one Sunday morning and he heard the bells of the church ringing. And watching the people walk along the pasture where he was, he happened to think to himself, “I would like to communicate with God! But, what can I say to God?” He had never learned a prayer. So, on bended knee, he began to recite the alphabet. Repeating this prayer several times, a man passing by, heard the boy's voice and peaked through the bushes. He saw the young boy kneeling with folded hands, eyes closed, repeating the alphabet.…

It is unfair!

Do not grieve; the joy of the Lord is your strength. Nehemiah 8:9
Good morning, friends.
During our New Year service when we were asked to share the testimonies, people shared how God has been good to them. It was such a delight to hear from those who experienced God’s hand in their lives. One girl made a statement when she testified the Lord. “It is unfair if I do not thank Him from the depth of my heart for all the good things He has done in my life.” The catchy thing to my ears was “It is unfair if I do not thank Him from my heart.” What an awesome statement that is!
I just think of how many thanks we normally say to people around us. If a person holds the door open for us, we thank them. If the cashier gives away the receipt for our purchase, we thank them. When the waitress serves the food, we thank them. When the team members do a fantastic job, we thank them. When the conductor gives the ticket, we thank them. When someone gives a ride to the office, we thank them. We can add n nu…
