Try seeking Him first!

But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Matthew 6 : 33

Good morning.

It happened exactly when we were doing our 5th semester. We had a prayer cell in our hostel. But praying is strictly prohibited there. The warden was too strict on this. But whenever we were free, we joined together and prayed. On knowing about the prayer cell, the warden and her friends fired a lot of questions to us many days, especially during our exams. She blamed us in all the ways she could. Really we felt so sad. It was our toughest time. During such an enquiry, she told us, “Let me wait and see your results. At that time you people will realize me. And you all will definitely feel badly for why wasted your precious time in praying than studying”.

We all never opened our mouths to reply, but we prayed. That was the only thing which we could do at that time. One fine day the result came. All the girls who were in that prayer cell secured nearly 80 %. In fact we ourselves could not believe that. Not a single person secured lesser than that. When scolding, the warden pinpointed 3 girls. Those three girls secured the top rankings in the very same semester itself. And all the others got around 80 %.


I am happy that we’re not blessed only in the marks we scored, but also in everything. I am sure that that happened only by the Lord. It clearly conveyed us all a message. “The horses will be prepared for the battle, but the victory belongs to God.” We also realized the real meaning of the verse Matthew 6:33. The warden too came to know our results. She didn’t open her mouth regarding marks thereafter.

Yes friends, when people begin to blame or irritate us for doing God's work, please don’t worry. He won’t sit idle. He is a powerful God clothed with splendor and majesty. When you do His work willingly, He does great things for you! When we wicked generation know how to bless our children, how can He stay silent without repaying what we actually deserve? When you invest your time for His glory, you’ll see His hands in all your situations. It doesn’t mean that you’ll get everything so easily, but you’ll get the right things. He will act accordingly so that all who curse you will definitely feel how good our God is. Today the situations may seem worse. Be patient, because the Lord, the blessed Redeemer will redeem us without even leaving the traces behind!

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 …
