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…

Thank you, Lord!!!

He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore, I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. 2 Corinthians 12: 9
Below is a small portion of what I read in the book ‘I’ve got to talk to somebody, God’ written by ‘Marjorie Holmes’.
"Oh God, how grateful we should be for color. For blue skies, blue eyes, and for the little blue dress that I am hanging on the line, for the ruby red of cherries, the red on the wood pecker’s throat, for the countless shades of green which carpet the ground and for the lovely yellow so rich and so intense in an egg yolk, a lemon, golden yellow of sunshine, daffodils, for different shades of skin, eyes and hair! How dull it would be Lord to see all the races and all faces looked alike."
I never imagined that someone would thank the Lord for the colors. She doesn’t stop there. She thanks the Lord for she got the chance to doing dishes, mopping the floo…
