Count your blessings!


You would be fed with the finest of wheat; with honey from the rock I would satisfy you. Psalms 81:16

I’m glad to share what I’m experiencing recently!

Before my journey to Nashville one thing I greatly worried about was I didn’t know anyone here and the client was also new. On the other side I felt happy because many worship leaders are living in and around Nashville so I could attend their concerts.

When a few days were left out for my travel to USA, I heard that one of the friends whom I knew from a fellowship works at Nashville and contacted him. Believe me, I was not accustomed with any of the modern devices, not even the dryer and washer, vacuum cleaners, bath tubs, piped gas stoves, etc… He taught me all the basic things that I needed and left me at the hotel. Finding a girl roommate in Nashville is pretty tougher, but at the second week of my stay at hotel, God brought me a wonderful roommate and as soon as she went back to India, He brought another one who now stays with me at my apartment.

I’m able to attend Church every Sunday with the help of my friend. I even shared a short testimony during the New Year service. I have 2 wonderful clients at work who believe in Christ. They are glad to speak to me about Christ. One took me to her Church and the other one even came to my apartment with a blanket when I said I was not able to bear the cold. Above all, she prays for me that I should stay warmer at her 2 AM. Isn't it wonderful? When I was thinking to attend a few concerts, God opened a door for me even to stay at one of the worship leaders (Lenny LeBlanc) to celebrate my first Christmas in USA. Amazingly Chuck from Don Moen’s team also has invited me to his house. I’m planning to visit his family sooner.

Everyday God soothes me a lot when I feel like I’m alone. I’m getting a wonderful chance to listen to many songs that uplift Jesus on high! I remember the times I hurried to my company library to send out the devotional emails. Now I have many chances to send Today’s Word of God as I have 2 laptops. :)

Initially everything seemed to frustrate me, but then I’m noticing God’s hand in all the areas. I could boldly say that I’m more than blessed now. Whenever I start worrying about my work, I’m thinking of how God has guided me thus far. So I believe that the one who was with me till now will also be with me forever and will help me come out with flying colors. When God calls you somewhere, He will never leave you hopeless. Whenever you’re afraid, count your blessings one by one, even before you cross 5, your fear will run away from you. The one who fed Elijah through ravens will also feed you with the finest of the wheat and with the honey!

May God bless you!

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 …
