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!

My pregnancy journey

I got married in Aug 2013, but never got to see positive Urine pregnancy test. NEVER! I won't say I was greatly disappointed as I was also waiting for few things between me and husband to settle down slowly and it took a while. Once things became alright everyone started expecting and wherever we went we got plenty of advice and tips. We were hesitant to take Sunday's classes due to the initial issues between us, but somehow for the past two years we have been teaching little children every Sunday. 
In the meantime, we tried multiple doctors (no big treatments) and were bored with the same repetitive scans and tests, which reported no issues as such. The last scans taken in 2017 reported I had little harmless cysts and they would take time to resolve and the doctor would stop even the few tablets I had to take on 5 days at the start of my cycle. I would have to be honest here. My cycle - can vary from 26 days to 60 days too. You can hardly guess what my fertile days are, includ…

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…

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…
