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!

    My everyday needs are met by our Lord! I can keep adding.Without Him we can't survive. As David says He sustains us.

    God Bless You.

  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.

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 …
