Be a doer!

We must pay more careful attention, therefore, to what we have heard, so that we do not drift away. Hebrews 2:1

Good morning, friends.

I’m working for a new project since the last month. I’m the only one working from my organization interacting with the client teams at on-site. This is altogether a very different project. Clients give knowledge transfer everyday and they assign some tasks to me. When I listen to them over the phone, or when I watch them doing things on their system, I’ll be pretty sure they’re very easy to perform. But when they all go to sleep assigning me the same tasks, I’ll be in such a pathetic situation if I get stuck somewhere. Mostly I’ll hesitate to wake them up at night. But if I face any problem, there is no way I can perform the tasks which need to be done at the scheduled times. So what we planned is, whatever they tell me, I’ll do in front of them by remote desktop sharing and once they feel I’m comfortable, they’ll go for a happy nap. This is how I learn and implement things as this is the start.

When I read Hebrews 2:1, I really understood why Paul insisted us to pay more attention to what we hear. The more we lend our ears, the more careful we listen. But what is the use of hearing all the time? When we don’t implement what we hear and what we are taught, if we’re left alone, certainly there comes a day when we are digging a deep pit for ourselves. When I say ‘left alone’ I really mean it. It is very easier for me to be good in front of others. I know how to speak when others look at me. I know how to do things when I see someone next to me. But what I do when none is with me, is what that matters. God gives instructions to us through His Word. As Paul says, we have to listen to what the Lord speaks to us when we read Bible or when we hear ministers preaching to us. Mere listening is not enough. That’s why the Bible clearly asks us to ‘Be a doer’. When you implement things by your own, you’ll really know your own potential. If you’re lacking anything, you can ask God the wisdom you need. Still if we are just listeners, it is much clear that we’re going to be drifted away. We have to stand firm in our faith, else we’ll not stand at all. To stand against the wrong desires and all the other unwanted stuff, we should not be just a listener. Did you ever think of Paul and his ministry? He was a great persecutor, but when God spoke to him ONCE, his life got completely transformed. How many years are we hearing to great preachers? How many times have we read the Bible completely? But still, we are nowhere nearer to Paul. Why? We pathetically fail to implement. My suggestion to you and me is ‘read one letter of Paul everyday.’ And be a doer!

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…
