Prestige pressure cooker magic!



Before you assume anything from the title of the post, let me tell you that I am not a brand ambassador of Prestige pressure cookers in any way. :) Then why am I speaking about it? Well, the answer is, the Lord has been reminding me about an incident for the past few days and so I wanted to share it with you today.

I will remember the deeds of the Lord; yes, I will remember your miracles of long ago. I will consider all your works and meditate on all your mighty deeds. Psalm 77 : 11, 12

3 years ago, when I lived with my friends in Chennai, my mom visited us for a few days. She has always been a great help to us. For example, I had a lot of clothes to be washed, and we didn’t have a washing machine. So, after I left for the office, she washed and dried them all. Then, during a holiday, around noon, she was cooking rice for me in a pressure cooker. When it was almost time for the cooker to whistle she had moved a little farther and started arranging my clothes inside a duffel bag. In the meantime she saw the cooker explode. It was not a Prestige pressure cooker. I was very thankful to God that she was not near the cooker when it exploded.  But from that time on, she insisted that I should only buy Prestige pressure cookers and nothing else.

Recently I had an issue with my Prestige pressure cooker, due to some mistakes on my part. So when I bought a new one, I specifically bought a Prestige pressure cooker, as I was reminded about my mom and what happened 3 years back.

This is a very good example of why parents must teach their children of the good things, along with the reason, and should live a life that their children cannot forget until their last breath.

In Psalm 77:11-20, the Psalmist, in spite of the issues he had, remembers what God had done in the past. This helped him overcome them. Remember, God alone is the strength of our heart. No one (Nothing) else can be our strength anytime. If you feel that the job you possess, or the knowledge you have, or even your family is your strength, then it is time for you to erase this from your heart, and let God be your strength. When you do this, you cannot avoid passing the same to others, and especially to your children. Because you cannot resist in passing on the best you have for them no, matter how evil you think you are. Please do not be ignorant of what God is doing in your lives. He is able to use you as a media and will do the same to others too.

May God bless you! Have a blessed 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…
