Ready for the healing?



He said, "If you listen carefully to the voice of the LORD your God and do what is right in his eyes, if you pay attention to his commands and keep all his decrees, I will not bring on you any of the diseases I brought on the Egyptians, for I am the LORD, who heals you." Exodus 15:26

March 27 is a special day in my life. Here is a quick recap of why it is special.

On March 27, 2011, I was admitted in a hospital in Nashville as I had a severe pain in my lower abdomen. The doctors told me that it could be due to cancer, kidney stones, bla bla… I was very shocked to hear that, as I was so far away from my family. Suddenly I felt like an orphan. I cried all day long. The doctors told me that the pain may come again anytime. But Jesus reminded me about this verse: Exodus 14:13. “Don't be afraid. Just stand still and watch the LORD rescue you today. The Egyptians you see today will never be seen again.”  To me, my Egyptian on that day was the pain. The world said that the pain may come again, but the Lord said it would never come again. You know what? The Lord won, as always! One full year has passed, and I have never experienced the pain again. Praise God!

Today when I read Matthew 9, I came across several types of healing. Verses 1-7 talk about the paralytic man who was carried by four men and was healed. Verses 18-19, 23-26 talk about the daughter of the ruler, who rose from the dead.  Verses 20-22 talk about the woman who was delivered from her bleeding ulcer that had plagued her for 12 long years. Verses 27-30 talk about the blind men who received sight. Verses 32-33 talk about a demon possessed man out of whom the demon was driven. The entire chapter talks about healing. But they happened in different forms.

The paralytic man was healed, and his sins were forgiven by the faith of the men who carried him. The daughter of the ruler was saved by her father’s faith even after she was dead. The woman was delivered from her long suffering by her own faith. In fact the power from Jesus came out from Him when the woman touched the edge of His cloak. The blind men got their vision because they believed that Jesus was able to do it.

The faith of the people, and the faith of their loved ones, healed them all. Do we have trust in Him? I saw a juice bottle wrapped by a label that says, “Trust me; I am good” in H-Mart two days ago. The Lord, who has done great and mighty things in our lives, so far is so good. We can always trust Him. Jesus is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow. He has the same power He had in Matthew 9. We need to take a step in faith. Are we ready today?

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 …
