Even my simple desires!


What is mankind that You are mindful of them, human beings that You care for them? Psalms 8 : 4

Good morning, friends. It’s the time to think about God’s another characteristic. He cares for us! Below is just an incident that happened to my friend.

It crossed the regular office timing, so I and my fellowship hurried up to board a late evening shuttle. By the time we reached the parking space, the bus was full. So we just walked outside of our campus. Then suddenly we planned to have dinner at a hotel. I have eaten fish fry only a very handful number of times in my lifetime. I ordered the fish fry. But after it was served, I was not able to eat it and so I packed it up to my room. I boarded a bus after the dinner where I met another friend.

Before I got down at my stop, I handled the parcel to her and reached my home. The very next morning during our fellowship time, she shared her testimony that she wanted to have fish the previous night. But she didn’t have time to go out. The rest of the story, you know!

This may sound silly, eating fish is not really an important need in one’s life. But who are we that He is mindful of us? Why should He care for even our silly desire? It’s amazing to see how God provides us what we wanted. My needs have been met by Him innumerable times even before I knew I needed them. Isn’t it surprising that God, the Maker of heaven and Earth takes much care of you?

Let us take a few minutes and think about a few circumstances in which the Lord has fulfilled even your simple desires. Write back to me if you want to share it with me. I would like to hear your experience too. Stay blessed!

  2. Dear sis,
    There are many silly desires that my LORD had and has been fullfilling till date. I listed down some to share with you,
    1. During college days, I have yearned to talk fluently and pray fluently in English. However I could not, cos I was scared thinking, what if I spoke wrong? I used to pray my personal prayer in English telling GOD that I would practise this way. (I shall make my testimony shorter ;)) The LORD granted me a job where I was suppose to talk continuously in English and I was selected for it amongst 50 people who spoke English like breathing.
    2. While in college I had a desire to join WIPRO. I just gave a shout to the LORD (not even a proper prayer) that I would like to join there. My first job was with WIPRO and I did not realise that it was the answer to my shout unto the LORD till HE spoke to me that it was what I wanted.
    3. I used to be very thin till my college days and people use to make fun of me because of the way I look. I was always looked down upon, never been regarded at all. I use to cry unto the LORD to make me a little fat. The LORD answered this prayer of mine too.
    4. There are many instances where the LORD would be talking to me through a verse, but I may not the scripture portion correctly. Within 1 or 2 days, HE has always shown the correct scripture portion.

    There are many many many more prayers or mine that got answered. I praise GOD for it and I thank you for giving me this oppurtunity to share.

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…
