He never sleeps!

Indeed, He who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep. Psalms 121:4

Good morning, friends.

Now-a-days I’m working in first shift. I’ve to get up at least by 4.15 AM everyday. I’ve to be in office at around 6 AM in the morning. You all may know how tough it is to get up so early especially when the weather is too cold. I’m staying away from my parents for work. I set up an alarm every night before I go to sleep. You know what happens? My hand will automatically snooze the alarm every now and then as I’ll be so sleepy. But my father will call me everyday at around 4.15 AM. That’s normal. But one day he returned to my hometown so late by 2 AM and then as usual he called me. I asked him if he could call me after ten minutes. He agreed and then when he woke me up again, he told me that he didn’t sleep at all for the entire night as he knew if he slept, he would have not waken up at 4 AM to give me a call. Though I was worried for not allowing him to sleep, I felt so happy that my mom and dad are always thinking of me even beyond their sleep.

My friend, when I think of their love, I also think there is someone who is greater than my mom and dad who works in ways I cannot see. The prophet Jeremiah says that the plans the Lord has for me is to prosper me and not to harm me. But sometimes we question God, “Aren’t you seeing me walking through such a pain that I cannot bear?” “If I’m the apple of Your eyes, why is this happening to me?” and the questions list grows. The Psalmist boldly says, “Though I walk through the valley of shadow of death, I fear no evil for Your rod and Your staff they comfort me.” Shall we say that to Him today?

In my fellowship, one uncle always says, “Life is so simple; we are trying all that we can to complicate it.”

In Don Moen’s ‘Hiding Place’ album, there is a wonderful song ‘He never sleeps, He never slumbers.’  It is written so beautifully. I love the lines below.

Do you think that the Lord has forgotten your needs? Just remember that the Lord is always working in ways you cannot see. He never sleeps; He never slumbers; He never tires of hearing our prayer. When we are weak, He becomes stronger. So rest in His love and cast all of your cares on Him. And his song ‘God is good’ has ‘Though I may not understand all the plans You have for me, my life is in Your hands. And through the eyes of faith, I can clearly see.’


Do you think the saints who stand up for God have no problems? No, they too have. But they see the problems through their eyes of faith. We keep them closed. That’s the only difference. Trust Him to the core and overcome the problems you have, because the battle belongs to Him. And through Him the victory is ours. Cheer up.

May God bless you all!

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…
