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!

Jesus' Word 1 and 2 on the cross

Hi all,

Friends, as this is the Holy week, let us see something about what Jesus spoke when He was on the cross. Yesterday we had a meeting where we shared the Word of God based on these seven Words. There can be n number of emails that can be sent. But I try to make things short. Read a verse and then take a break and then proceed, if it is too long.

Word 1:

“Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they do.” Luke 23:34

The people who shouted, “Hosannah!” and who prepared Him way on Palm Sunday, started shouting, “Nail Him on the cross” a few days later. He was beaten up like anything. People spitted on Him. They slapped Him. They made lot on His garments. They made Him bear a heavy cross. He was completely ill-treated by them.

Jesus – is the one who forgives the sins of the people. The primary purpose of Jesus to leave the place of the highest glory to the worst world is to forgive our sins. He insisted the same when He was on the cross when He was completed rejected and despise…

The Alphabet Prayer

“Now then go, and I, even I, will be with your mouth, and teach you what you are to say.” Exodus 4 : 12

Good morning. I was deeply burdened to share you a message for which I searched a short story. Unbelievably, God allowed me to read this story and yes it conveys exactly what I wanted to share today. I bet you would be inspired by this story. Every child comes with the message if you carefully notice what they do. Here is the story for you.

A little shepherd boy was watching his sheep one Sunday morning and he heard the bells of the church ringing. And watching the people walk along the pasture where he was, he happened to think to himself, “I would like to communicate with God! But, what can I say to God?” He had never learned a prayer. So, on bended knee, he began to recite the alphabet. Repeating this prayer several times, a man passing by, heard the boy's voice and peaked through the bushes. He saw the young boy kneeling with folded hands, eyes closed, repeating the alphabet.…

It is unfair!

Do not grieve; the joy of the Lord is your strength. Nehemiah 8:9
Good morning, friends.
During our New Year service when we were asked to share the testimonies, people shared how God has been good to them. It was such a delight to hear from those who experienced God’s hand in their lives. One girl made a statement when she testified the Lord. “It is unfair if I do not thank Him from the depth of my heart for all the good things He has done in my life.” The catchy thing to my ears was “It is unfair if I do not thank Him from my heart.” What an awesome statement that is!
I just think of how many thanks we normally say to people around us. If a person holds the door open for us, we thank them. If the cashier gives away the receipt for our purchase, we thank them. When the waitress serves the food, we thank them. When the team members do a fantastic job, we thank them. When the conductor gives the ticket, we thank them. When someone gives a ride to the office, we thank them. We can add n nu…
