Holding hands!


Do not fear, for I am with you; do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, surely I will help you, surely I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.  Isaiah 41 : 10

Good morning. 

Recently, a little boy became very close to me and started spending a lot of his time with me when I lived at his house. He wants to watch videos of ‘Lightning McQueen’, ‘Angry Birds’, ‘Thomas the train and his friends’ etc… on YouTube. He also plays some online games which are very interactive. He listens to every single instruction or dialogue. And it’s no surprise that he is super smart. :) When I was waiting to move to another location for my next assignment, I stayed home most of the time.

One morning when I got up he came to my room and wanted me to show him some ‘Peppa pig’ videos. I liked the plan, or I should say that I had to like whatever he tells me. ;) We started watching the videos one after the other and this went on for more than 2.5 hours. You know how he made me sit with him and watch whatever he wanted to watch? He held both of my hands the whole time. And I can never say ‘No’ to a child. He also checked frequently to see if I was watching the videos or not. He didn’t allow me to chat with my friends online or even check any emails. I was completely in his control until his mom asked him to leave me for a while. J I enjoyed being with him watching all those Peppa pigs episodes. :)

What I wanted to convey is, the essence of holding hands, and what holding hands mean in relationships. In the Bible, there are many verses that tell us that God holds us by His hands.

Examples: Isaiah 41:10, Isaiah 41:13, Psalm 63:8, Psalm 73:23

I browsed and found the following on the Internet.

Holding hands means:
·         Giving feelings of comfort, protection and safety
·         Conveying ‘I love you’ or ‘I like you’ without using words
·         Intensifying the feeling you have toward the other
·         Saying ‘You’re accepted’/ ‘you belong to me’
·         Sign of ownership and domination
And a lot more for romantic relationships.

So our Almighty God holds us by His hands to protect us, to reassure that He loves us and that we belong to Him, and also saying that He is supposed to take the lead, not us. When we make Him lead us in all our ways, He will make our ways prosper, because He is the one who leads us and executes His plans in our lives. Our plans and desires may fail, but His’ will never! And we know that His plans are the best!  So, the next time when you hold hands with someone, remember God holds your hands! :)

Have a great day!

Jesus' Word 1 and 2 on the cross

Hi all,

Friends, as this is the Holy week, let us see something about what Jesus spoke when He was on the cross. Yesterday we had a meeting where we shared the Word of God based on these seven Words. There can be n number of emails that can be sent. But I try to make things short. Read a verse and then take a break and then proceed, if it is too long.

Word 1:

“Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they do.” Luke 23:34

The people who shouted, “Hosannah!” and who prepared Him way on Palm Sunday, started shouting, “Nail Him on the cross” a few days later. He was beaten up like anything. People spitted on Him. They slapped Him. They made lot on His garments. They made Him bear a heavy cross. He was completely ill-treated by them.

Jesus – is the one who forgives the sins of the people. The primary purpose of Jesus to leave the place of the highest glory to the worst world is to forgive our sins. He insisted the same when He was on the cross when He was completed rejected and despise…

The Alphabet Prayer

“Now then go, and I, even I, will be with your mouth, and teach you what you are to say.” Exodus 4 : 12

Good morning. I was deeply burdened to share you a message for which I searched a short story. Unbelievably, God allowed me to read this story and yes it conveys exactly what I wanted to share today. I bet you would be inspired by this story. Every child comes with the message if you carefully notice what they do. Here is the story for you.

A little shepherd boy was watching his sheep one Sunday morning and he heard the bells of the church ringing. And watching the people walk along the pasture where he was, he happened to think to himself, “I would like to communicate with God! But, what can I say to God?” He had never learned a prayer. So, on bended knee, he began to recite the alphabet. Repeating this prayer several times, a man passing by, heard the boy's voice and peaked through the bushes. He saw the young boy kneeling with folded hands, eyes closed, repeating the alphabet.…

It is unfair!

Do not grieve; the joy of the Lord is your strength. Nehemiah 8:9
Good morning, friends.
During our New Year service when we were asked to share the testimonies, people shared how God has been good to them. It was such a delight to hear from those who experienced God’s hand in their lives. One girl made a statement when she testified the Lord. “It is unfair if I do not thank Him from the depth of my heart for all the good things He has done in my life.” The catchy thing to my ears was “It is unfair if I do not thank Him from my heart.” What an awesome statement that is!
I just think of how many thanks we normally say to people around us. If a person holds the door open for us, we thank them. If the cashier gives away the receipt for our purchase, we thank them. When the waitress serves the food, we thank them. When the team members do a fantastic job, we thank them. When the conductor gives the ticket, we thank them. When someone gives a ride to the office, we thank them. We can add n nu…
