The formula for victory!

“Have faith in God,” Jesus answered. “Truly I tell you, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in their heart but believes that what they say will happen, it will be done for them. Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.”  Mark 11:22-24
Good morning!
Recently I called a customer care number and told the executive who answered the call that I am no longer using the service as much and I feel that what I pay is much higher than what I actually use. I told him that I am planning to cancel my service. I was surprised to hear him say, “Okay, please stay on the line. Let me do the cancelation for you.”
I remember calling the same customer care several months ago and asking them to cancel my account as I no longer had the adapter, without which I was not able to make calls. Immediately that person made arrangements to send a new adapter to me. He also told me that he would not charge me for the new adapter. He tried at any cost not to cancel my account, as he didn’t want to lose a customer. That makes sense.
What is the difference between these two guys? Both of them work for the same company. Both of them handle calls from their customers. Both of them get paid. But one tried keeping the customer and the other never bothered about losing a customer, but still he did his job.
I worked with two offshore teams earlier and I have seen many types of people from these teams. There are those who accomplish their assigned task, and leave for the day, showing no concern for the work remaining for the rest of the team. The rest of the people would complete their assigned tasks and call me to ask if they could help others with their pending tasks. Let us leave alone the other people who never bother doing either of these. J Just doing only the assigned work is completely different from working as a team to accomplish the team goals.
In the same way, how you pray for others matters.  Praying just because someone asked us to pray is different from praying with a true burden in our hearts. Praying with true burden in our hearts is different from praying with faith on the living God.
Faith, true faith, is so hard sometimes. I often wonder why we have more faith in a chair than we do in God. If you had the slightest notion that a chair would fail in its duty to support you, would you sit in it? No. But you sit in the chair because you have 100% faith that it will support you. Are we willing to put that kind of faith in God, never having the slightest doubt that He will support us?
Yes, ‘True burden + Faith + Prayer = Victory’! :)
Stay blessed!

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…
