Jehovah Jireh!!

Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to Him, and He will make your paths straight. Proverbs 3:5-6

Good morning, friends! I'm here with a testimony.

After returning from office, I was searching for my personal laptop at my house and I didn't find it for a while. Here the maintenance people can come in anytime even when we're not present. But they are trustworthy. So I didn't worry because I knew that I should have misplaced it today. Then I realized how much I'm trusting even the people whom I have never known before. 

Many times I worry too much about what will happen to me in the future. But Bible asks me not to lean on my own understanding. I know I will first try out all the possible ways on my own strength before leaning on the Lord. When everything fails me, as I have no other go, I would submit myself and my cares on Him.

It was just a day before I started from Nashville I got a confirmation that I need to move to Minneapolis. I didn't even have enough time for packing my things. I knew no one to help me out with the accommodation. To all the advertisements I posted, I got responses from guys. I'm not too rigid that I would not speak to the other gender, but I am not too modern to share the accommodation with a guy. One of my college seniors with whom I never had a contact for more than 5 years sent me a friend request on FaceBook. After I accepted it, I found out that she stays in Minneapolis with her family. I was surprised and through her husband's friend, I got settled in a house now. 

My colleagues started scolding me for choosing this apartment as it would not be possible at all to walk even a single step during Winter as it would start snowing continuously. I don't have my own transportation to office. This troubled me a lot. I attended a family retreat one weekend where I met a few people who also work for the same client and they also stay closer to my apartment. Now they come and pick me up to work. I also return with them. Both my accommodation and the transportation needs were met so sooner, even before I actually prayed.

Isn't it wonderful that God does care about every single detail of our lives? Even before we know that we would need something, God provides it. Remember Elijah was fed by a raven when he was starving. In my life I've come across many ravens who would God bring to the people who are in need. To my eyes it is always surprising when I think of the ways how God leads me in spite of all my weaknesses. 

When the next time you think about the problems that threaten you, just make a decision to trust the Lord no matter how bad the situations appear. Don't lean on your own understanding. Remind yourself that all things will work together for good! Worrying can worse the situations. Replace your worries by the joy of the Lord because it alone is our strength. You'll find perfect peace seeing what God does for you!

May God bless you!

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…
