Just Believe!

Jesus said to Jairus, “Don’t be afraid; just believe, and she will be healed.” Luke 8 : 50

Below is a very short passage from Luke 8, but it has a whole lot of truth.

A man named Jairus, a synagogue leader, came and fell at Jesus’ feet, pleading with him to come to his house because his only daughter, a girl of about twelve, was dying.   As Jesus was on his way, the crowds almost crushed him. And a woman was there who had been subject to bleeding for twelve years, but no one could heal her. She came up behind him and touched the edge of his cloak, and immediately her bleeding stopped.

Jesus said, “Someone touched me; I know that power has gone out from me.” Then the woman she told why she had touched him and how she had been instantly healed. Then he said to her, “Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace.”  While Jesus was still speaking, someone came from the house of Jairus, the synagogue leader. “Your daughter is dead,” he said. “Don’t bother the teacher anymore.”

Jairus fell at Jesus’ feet for his 12 years old daughter. Jesus filled with compassion started walking toward his house. But a lady who suffered by bleeding for 12 long years touched the edge of His cloak and a great miracle happened. But Jesus stopped and started enquiring who touched Him. Even the disciples told Jesus that there was a very big crowd pressing Him. Then the lady came forward and admitted that she was the one who touched and was healed.

Think of Jairus’ situation. If I were Jairus I would have begged Jesus, “It’s okay, she is healed anyway. Don’t waste the time. My daughter is already dying.” I would have not been impressed much by this brand new miracle. But Bible nowhere says that Jairus was impatient even when someone said that his daughter was dead. Jesus comforts Jairus saying, “Don’t be afraid; just believe. She will be healed.”

The 12 years girl already died. Everyone was wailing and was mourning for her. Later Jesus touched her and she was brought back to life. Another miracle happened!

 - When the whole crowd pressed toward Jesus, the one lady who touched his cloak with faith was healed instantly. One simple truth is, Jesus loves you as if are the only person in the world. He takes care of you and your needs though you feel like you’re unimportant.

 - Everyone knew that Jairus’ daughter was dead already. But Jesus told that she would be healed. This clearly tells that none of our situations are dead. They all can be healed if you and I fall at His feet. And your situations will be the medicine for someone else’ pain.

 - 12 years long suffering has gone somewhere because Jesus was on the way to Jairus’ house. Don’t feel like you’re waiting for some miracle to happen for years. The miracle is on your way!

 - I am impressed with the number 12. 12 years long suffering lady and 12 years old girl! Jairus’ prayer for his daughter brought healing not only to his daughter, but also to another woman who was suffering because of bleeding as much years as his daughter was. Today you may be suffering, but please invite Jesus! Not only your need will be met, the people around you will be touched by Him.

 - Finally, Jesus is never late! His timing is perfect! The delay caused because of a lady was not a delay at all. It’s the beginning of bringing streams in the desert, roadways in the wilderness. It’s the beginning of impossibilities turning possible before your very own eyes. 

All things are possible with God! Amen!

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…
