Life is too short!

"If you forgive those who sin against you, your heavenly Father will forgive you. But if you refuse to forgive others, your Father will not forgive your sins." Matthew 6: 14, 15

The Lord has placed a deep burden inside me to share with you all two things. Let me bring the first one today and the next one tomorrow. This is my personal unforgettable incident, but I’m sharing this to you all for your edification. Please read it fully.

My father got voluntary retirement when I did my Engineering second year. Till then I used to spend my vacation at my grandparents home. My father used to be their son, rather than their son-in-law. We all loved one another. He helped my uncle financially with the entire amount he got after his retirement upon the advice of my grandfather. One day came when my family stood shocked when we were not able to pay my college fees. My parents and I went to my uncle’s home just to know that he would not return even a single rupee for my fees. Somehow God provided graciously and only with His mercy I got graduated. Only by his grace I got placed even before I came out of the college.

But the other side was, we had hatred developed deep inside our hearts toward them all. IT was my mom who constantly longed and prayed for unity and peace between us once again. But I, my father and siblings felt that they didn’t deserve to be forgiven. Somehow God spoke to me and I reconciled with few of them, especially with my grandfather.

Few months back, when we went for a prayer meeting, by God’s grace my father met my grandfather and spoke to him. Things started changing one month back. My grandfather fell sick. To take care of him, my father took off and was there outside the Critical care unit day and night along with my uncles and soon everyone was united. We wholeheartedly prayed for one another. We felt the love growing from within.

Within a month, the Lord wanted my grandpa and on last Saturday he entered the eternity. We all cried and cried till no more tear was left out in the eyes. IT was very tough. But I could see the oneness again. That’s what my mother longed for a very long time, which I thought was never possible at all. But now I know with God all things are possible!

Before my grandpa died, he saw everyone together and though he was not able to speak or express it, I know definitely he was very happy on the reunion. And my dear God showed us the grace to reconcile with everyone through this incident. We have peace in our hearts when we think at least we have taken good care of him before he left us.


Dear friends, it’s not too late to forgive someone who cheated you! Though they don’t deserve it, please forgive them. Because, you never know whether you’ll get yet another chance to forgive them. Life is too short to hold grudge against someone. As far as possible live in peace with everyone. It’s not so easy. But through Him we can do anything and everything. Jesus Christ forgave even those who spat at Him. He showed His love even to us when we were the worst of all the sinners.

May God bless!

  1. We should learn to forgive which is more important in Christian walk.I am practising to forgive now if some one hurts me. I focus on God / Eternity / Heaven when it comes to fogiveness and it becomes easy to forgive.
    Entering to heaven is by HIS Grace but we should not have any bad remarks during the Judgement day when we face our Jesus face to face.
    God Bless you Sister

  2. Forgiving Others, is the quintessential foundation of our Faith. As well it is our duty as Beings created in The Image Of God. Also important, we must learn to forgive ourself first, for that is one of the deeply hidden disease that makes us sick when we have to forgive others, and at my site you will be thought how to: http://www.Jamesfreespiritual.org/ Dr. James Dazouloute

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…
