Carry others' burden


Carry each other's burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ. Galatians 6:2

Everything went smooth for me for the past few days. Praise God. :)

Today due to some official issues at work, I was very upset. While returning to my home, I decided to stay on the bus until it reached its last stop rather than getting off at my own stop. I thought this would give me some break from my anxiety. My decision didn’t change until I saw 2 people get on the bus & sit in the front seat. While I was still feeling worried, I saw them and something attracted me to them & their conversation. You know what? They spoke in sign language to each other. Though I was not able to understand anything, I knew that they conversed on whatever they saw. I felt really ashamed to have dwelled so much on the same problem again and again which had already been resolved by God’s grace.

When looking at these 2 people, I realized how blessed I am. I also realized that no matter how much God blesses me, I still give too much importance to the little things which bother me, while there are people out there with many problems which can’t be expressed by words. Getting up, going to office, working for a while, returning, worrying about our own problems, eating & sleeping shouldn’t be our routine. Now the real question comes! So what should someone do?

The answer is pretty simple! The burden which you and I have toward the suffering people will change us. We should not be completely immersed in our own problems. We should see beyond our own world. Let us at least start with our own friends and neighbors. Now another big question comes! When we ourselves are busy with our own schedules, without much contact with our friends, how can we know that they are in trouble? How can we pray about that?

Listen, the Lord didn’t destroy Sodom and Gomorrah without letting Abraham know of it. He didn’t allow famine throughout the world without preparing Joseph for those 7 years of drought. He didn’t want to silently destroy Nineveh, instead he sent Jonah to warn the people to come out of their wicked ways. God always wants to reveal the secrets with us when we are ready to stand for Him and His people in the gap.

I know many people who have visions from the Lord, and then suddenly have deep burden for someone. They know that something is going to happen with them. But still when they stand in prayer, the problems that are yet to come will not happen. When you get dreams & visions about you or someone else, don’t be worried or discouraged. God just gives you a heads-up and asks you to pray about it. Just carry their burdens as yours and pray for them as per Galatians 6:2! Your prayers can save them!

May God bless you!

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 …
