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!

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 …
