Days of restoration!



The Lord restores my soul. Psalms 23 : 3
Today are you feeling that you have tried out all the ways to come out of the darkness that surrounds you, but still your efforts end up only in vain? Then this is exactly for you!

Believe me, everyone has their own problem. The girl who faces problems with her marital life will think that she has the world's toughest problem and the student who failed in his important exam will think that he has the worst problem than anyone does.

Peter was fed up when he saw his empty net even after he tried an entire night. Jesus came to Peter by the time Peter was washing his net. He was thinking to go to his place, but Jesus asked him to cast his net again in the water. Peter being a fisherman would have thought what the hell was happening. He knew every trick to catch a fish, but none of his tricks worked out that night. Still he did obey to Jesus and went back to the same water and to his surprise he was able to see many fishes in his net.

Sometimes you may worry why the Lord keeps on sending you to a place which you don't like or which you like most, but was seriously disappointed because you've been hurt. Remember God doesn't want you to give up. He doesn't want you to turn your back on those shameful areas. He wants you to go, face your battle, restore things up and stand victorious in the same place.

To cite a practical example, when I was a fresher, I was into a development team. We all worked day and night. But the clients thought that they were paying for nothing as their expectations were very high. We were not able to win their confidence. After a year or so, I was asked to work on the very same project as a single resource. I was not at all willing to work on it again. I even thought of leaving my company because of that. But the Lord put me onto the same project, that too as a single one working directly with the client. He didn't leave me helpless. He was with me everyday that I worked and you know what? My client has given lot many commendations on my work and everyone noticed it and it was added to my credit, so that even today people could remember that.

If He cares for your projects, will He not care for your future and what you're going through in your life?

I know my friends, many of you're worrying too much about their lives, because you face unbearable pain, but God tells you today that He will set everything right for you. He will fight the battle for you. He will not leave you ashamed in front of the wicked eyes. Believe me, He is restoring you. You'll never be put to shame. With God, you'll gain victory over all the giants you face today.

What is the starting point of restoration? Nehemiah stood up finding God's favor and gathered the weak people and restored the wall of Jerusalem. Why was the wall considered so important? Because it is the main strength of a city. If it is strong, the entire city is secured from the hands of enemies. If the wall is broken, then the people are prone to any attacks. Similarly when your relationship with God collapses, you're prone to anything. When you set things right with God, nothing can collapse your peace, no matter whatever happens to you. Is your soul weary today?

Creating things are easy. Destroying anything is far easier. But restoring things are not that easy. But with God anything is possible. He is your creator. No one knows much about you as He does. He can restore your soul! Psalms 23 : 3 talks about it.

May this November be the month of restoration. No matter whatever we're losing, wherever we're back sliding, in whichever area we're growing weary, our God is a God of restoration and this is His restoring period. He can still restore anything, especially your soul which none can restore. Enough is enough. Shall we surrender the broken pieces to Him for restoration today?

I would like to finish this with a famous saying. 'The losers are those who give up without knowing that they're just 2 steps away from their winning point.' Never give up! He is turning your sorrows into joy. Yes, it's almost done. :)

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…
