The Father with the rod!

He who spares the rod hates his son, but he who loves him is careful to discipline him. Proverbs 13 : 24

Good morning, friends.

Today morning, while washing my dress I found some stains on it. Though I washed each and every area of that dress, I gave more importance to the area where I found stain. I applied more and more washing soap over that area and brushed and brushed that again and again.

The other day, when I was boiling the milk, I was very careful to watch it continuously. But when I turned to take my Bible, the milk overflowed and spilled outside. 


I got two different messages from the above two incidents.

One:   Sometimes though we don’t commit the greater sins like murders, adultery, etc…, we often fall into smaller sins like telling lies just like that. We’ll also justify why we told lies. There is nothing like great sins and small sins. Every sin is equal. Satan is too wicked and he is like a roaring lion in search of a prey. The very next moment he sees something wrong with us, he will go to Jesus to make Him stand ashamed in front of him for our sins. So be careful all the time. That’s why Jesus asks us to watch and pray to not to enter into temptations. If you give up a small place for it, it’ll occupy you. If you say that you’ll be careful even if you stand in the temptation, no matter how careful you’re, you’ll fall just like the boiled milk spilled out when I turned for a second. The result will be miserable. We all know that the greatest enemy for one’s happiness is the guilty feeling he has in him after committing sin.

Two:   Sometimes you may feel that the Lord teaches you something, which you don’t like at all. A little son doesn’t like when his mom doesn’t allow him to touch knife. When he touches, his mom will ask him to leave it, very softly many times. But when he doesn’t pay attention, definitely his mom will spank him. It doesn’t mean she hates him, but it means she loves him and she doesn’t want him to get hurt by the knife. The same thing holds true with our Father in Heaven. He loves us like anything. But He spanks us sometimes, just like I brushed and applied soap and brushed and brushed again and again until I saw the stains disappeared. The ultimate aim was to get the dress clean. His ultimate aim is to cleanse us till He sees His image in us, just like a goldsmith refines and refines the gold till he gets it pure. He spanks us until we leave the knife (unwanted things) we took in our hands(hearts).

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…
