You are engraved!!!

“Behold! I have engraved you on the palms of My hands!” Isaiah 49:16

Good morning, friends.

2 days ago, I went to a shopping mall with my friend. I bought snacks from KFC and paid the bill with my credit card. We finished eating, and threw away the trash in the trash bin, and walked to another shop to buy raw chicken. When we were at the billing counter, I realized that I lost my credit card. I was praying to God that either I threw the credit card into the trash or it should be in the hands of a good person. When I called the bank’s customer care department, they wanted me to tell them my credit card number. But I had been too lazy to learn, or document, my credit card number. So I was not able to deactivate it immediately. I tried retrieving the details online, but the internet connection was not cooperating. It took nearly one hour for me to deactivate it. I was worried a lot because buying expensive items using the credit card in such a big mall is so easy. But when I checked the credit card statement online, I was surprised to see that nobody had used it until I deactivated the credit card. 

I don’t know what happened to my credit card or who found it, but I am sure that it is my God who prevented anyone from using it for one hour. I had no control over the lost credit card. I had to call out to Him and surrendered the situation into His powerful hands. The Lord listened to my prayer and answered it. Listen, this blog is not actually about my credit card’s protection, but about something which is very true and more useful for you.

I have lot of questions in my heart and I have been worrying about them all recently. Whatever I do with my own strength fails miserably. I do not have control over anything. Day by day I grow weary, worrying about these matters that bother me. Are you, too, feeling the same today? Then this is for you. 

The above incident reminded me of how God controls situations. It doesn’t matter what the problems are, or who creates those problems in your life, or how weak you are to deal with them, as long as you surrender them in to His hands. The Lord says, “See, I have engraved you on the palms of My hands; your walls are ever before Me.” Pour out your heart to Him today. The matter that concerns you concerns Him too. So cheer up. You may not have the answers to all your questions, but you know the One who holds you in His hands also has answers to all your questions. The One who has the answers also knows how to bring them to pass. Remember, the problems that we cannot control, are the problems that are in His control, because we are on the palm of His hands.

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 …
