Do you believe?

For everyone born of God (child of God) overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith. 1 John 5 : 4


Good morning, friends. I read this in a book and found it to be useful. I hope you’ll too.

Some years ago, a boy in a small Florida town heard that the Russians were their enemies. He began to wonder about the Russian children, finding it too hard to believe they were his enemies. He wrote a short note: “Dear friend in Russia, I’m seven years old and I believe that we can live in peace. I want to be your friend, not your enemy. Will you be my friend and write back to me?”

He closed the letter “Love and Peace” and signed his name. He neatly folded the note, out it into a bottle and threw it into an island lake near his home. Several days later, the bottle and the note were retrieved on a nearby beach. A story about the note appeared in a local newspaper and a wire service picked up the story and sent it nationwide. A group of people from New Hampshire who were taking children to the Soviet Union as ambassadors of peace, read the article, contacted the boy and his family and invited them to go with them. The little boy and his father traveled to Moscow as peacemakers!

Jesus told us to have faith like a little child. One boy believed that he could make a difference! Do you believe today that you too can make a difference when you’ve a deep desire for peace and love? At least maintain a good relationship in your small world, with your classmates, with your colleagues who are in the next cubicle, with the neighbors, with those who travel next to you in bus, etc,… Little drops of water make an ocean. If each and every one of us starts looking for ways to share our love, I believe there is no need for an ambassador. After all, we have a single life. Why do we have to waste it hating others?

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 …
