Trust in the risen Lord - Part I


Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. Proverbs 3 : 5

Good morning! 

This is our Pastor’s message this past Sunday from Mark 16:1-7. I loved it and wanted to share it with you in three parts. Below is the first part.

When the Sabbath was over, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices so that they might go to anoint Jesus’ body. Very early on the first day of the week, just after sunrise, they were on their way to the tomb and they asked each other, “Who will roll the stone away from the entrance of the tomb?” But when they looked up, they saw that the stone, which was very large, had been rolled away. Mark 16:1-4

With great purpose in their hands (to anoint Jesus’ body), questions in their minds (They knew that the stone at the tomb’s entrance was big and they could not roll it away to enter into it. They asked themselves who would roll the stone away for them) and no answers to their questions, they didn’t quit. They kept on walking. But they were surprised when they saw that the stone was already rolled away.

These women walked until they arrived at tomb. They didn’t give up on their way. Because they didn’t give up, they were able to see that the stone had been rolled away for them.

Do you remember what happened when Moses sent twelve men to Canaan? All the twelve saw both the wealth as well as the giants, but only Joshua and Caleb came back with good news that the Israelites could go and capture the land, whereas the other ten came back with words of discouragement as they had questions and fear on how to defeat those giants. Only two men ignored the questions that they had. Listen, you may not have all the answers to your questions. But don’t quit. Just walk forward in faith because your God has all the answers. The Lord will honor your faith.

God cares about every single detail of your life. The Bible says that the Lord knows what you need even before you know you need it. Are you worrying about something today? Don’t lose hope. You’re there. Our Risen Lord is Big! He can do great things for you in your life. March on.

Trust Him when you don’t know what the future holds for you. You don’t know what the future holds for you, but you know that your God holds your future. He has plans to prosper you & not to harm you. He saved you for a purpose. Whatever God has called you to do, do it; He will give you the strength to finish what you started, by faith.

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 …
