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 and eat it after you brush your teeth.” What a smart boy! He insisted, and so I took it with me. This made me feel quite happy and so I started getting ready to go to the office, with tons of smiles on my lips. Kids make our world beautiful!!!

He is a big fan of Angry Birds. He has many T-shirts that have Angry Birds pictures with many funny texts like ‘I have an angry face’, ‘I am an angry boy’, etc... That night, I saw him hanging around his mom and crying. When I asked her why, she told me that he wanted her to find the tape so he could work on that green colored paper again. When she didn’t give it to him, he really got angry and tore the paper to pieces. Once he realized that it was destroyed, he started crying. It took a long time for her to console him saying, “It’s okay. We can buy another one for you.”

It was funny to me. Recently I have been getting angry, even for small things. I didn’t yell at anyone. But the anger that we show openly is much better than the hatred we hold inside our heart. Pretty simple things disturb me a lot. But I know the magic reason for why I sometimes behave differently. I need to get closer to God. I have to have my feet rooted deep in Him. His strength will enable me to stand strong. I heard this phrase at Church: ‘When God is on our side and we are on His side, it doesn’t matter who is on the other side.’ I know we can find complete peace only in Him. But when things get worse day by day, I become afraid that things cannot be set right. But Siddhu’s “It’s no more” is easily erasable by his mother’s “Let us buy another one.” It really conveys a lot more than what I wanted to tell myself. Our pastor during His sermon preached, “Our God is a god of chances.” Breaking something several times is easy for us. But we have a God for whom rebuilding is possible. Now I really have hope that for God nothing is impossible and through Him we can do anything.

Just shake off the dust that is covering you and be willing to rise up again. Seek His help. He is waiting to rebuild the broken things in your life!

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…
