Wanna miraculous signs?

The Pharisees came and began to question Jesus. To test him, they asked him for a sign from heaven. He sighed deeply and said, "Why does this generation ask for a miraculous sign? Mark 8 : 11,12


Good morning, friends.

Last day, one of my friends working with me has sent me a text message that she has cleared an exam at the very last attempt only by the compassion of the Lord. I in turn have sent her an email saying, 'I praise God for your last attempt, where He proved that He still lives!' Later I reached my room and when I read Mark 8, the Lord made me realize one thing that I've done wrong.

If we carefully read all the four gospels from The Bible, we can know that the Pharisees were always around Jesus when He preached the truths, when He healed, when He raised people from the death. Even after knowing everything, they asked for a miraculous sign. Jesus questioned them and left them all and went other side.

I really felt ashamed for what I've sent to my friend. Didn't I behave exactly like the Pharisees? I know very well that even before I was born, He has chosen me and has known me by my name. So far, He has beautifully led me through various blessings, that I could not count forever. He has also led me through various trials and taught me how to overcome them all by His strength. I know very well that my Lord has great plans in store for me. I also know that He loves me more than anyone else, though I'm not at all worthy. I know that He has cleansed my blood red sins into cloudy white. I know that He is my potter who prepares me for the purpose He has for me. Though, I sent her 'I praise God for your last attempt, where he proved that He still lives'. Does He really have to prove that He lives even after His death for the worst sinners and the miraculous resurrection from the death?

'He is risen and He lives forever more'. Come on, let us celebrate the resurrection of our Lord, instead of looking/asking for miraculous signs.

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 …
