THANK YOU DEAR LORD FOR SAVING MY LIFE.

My beloved friends,today I am not about to write a post like other days but  I would like to thank the good Lord for his love for me and for you all as it’s a very special day for me and for my well wishers.

On 17 the August afternoon as I was returning home from my duty I fell down from my bicycle exactly on a busy road named National High way .You won’t believe that the particular time of the day is full of traffic(very heavy vehicles) on other days but that day When I fell down on my left side with all my weight weighed only on my left palm, there were no vehicles ,neither on the left nor on the right.The moment I fell, for a moment I felt that my left arm was missing so I sat in the middle of the road for a while to contemplate on my sad plight ,then I took up my bicycle and walked a little distance and crossed the road .

Thereafter I made a call to my son to help me as I was feeling helpless and soon my wife and son had come to my aid.I was saved once again for a purpose and the devil failed to kill me because of that blessed purpose.When I am destined to live for a great purpose nothing can destroy me .It was the love of the Lord and your prayers that foiled the plan of the evil one .So I thank the Lord for his saving grace and love.I request you all to thank the Lord for saving me .

At present the X-ray report says that I have a crack on my left elbow so the Doctor has prescribed 10 days of medications and if it doesn’t improve then the doctor will opt for other options .I am supposed to keep my arm in a sling pouch so that there is less movement .I Request you all to pray for me for quick recovery .

Interesting fact is that I was not able to sleep well at night for the last few weeks,I slept late at 2 or 2.30 AM and woke up at 5 AM so that was a big problem for me .After the accident I am able to sleep well despite the severe pain .I was suffering of insomnia.The accident saved me from some other major problems as numbers of covid 19 patients are sky rocketing every day.

I am sorry to say that I cannot reply to the questions which have been put forward by seamlessecho.wordpress.com as they have nominated me for the Sunshine blogger Award.Please do check their fantastic blog ,read ,comment and share as they are our well wishers,our beloved ones.I am sharing their link https://wp.me/pcbjgm-8f    for you all to check their Blog.                                     I thank you dears for nominating me for the Sunshine bloggers Award.God bless you abundantly.

When people die of loneliness,

they cry and hide their face.

I thank you all for your grace,

friends whom I’d love to embrace.

I know that I’m incomplete,

to be your friend as I’m unfit.

Sometimes I’m emotional a bit,

your reading my post is a treat.

From me you’ve got spam comment,

they are your post’s real ornament.

Your posts take me to the firmament,

so you be glad and have contentment.

Know the cause of my downfall,

it’ll make you great & never small.

reading a post is though normal,

but trust me I become emotional.

You are capable to create new things,

bring closer far away human beings.

Sadness flees as joy your post brings,

seeing the joy the cherubim sings.

The Value of One

You know the parable. The one about the lost sheep. With a little creative license, let me retell it for you. A young up and coming shepherd built a large sheep empire. Starting with a couple of sheep (a male and female to be exact) the shepherd cared tenderly for them, meeting their physical needs […]

The Value of One

IF YOU WANT THE RAINBOW,YOU GOOTA PUT UP WITH THE RAIN.

Durng this season of the year we get reports of severe rain and floods in different parts of the world.After a severe heat wave the rain is welcomed by all.The farmers are happy,the beasts of the wilderness are happy even the common men are happy for the sudden change of weather. If the rains are heavy then there is a danger of flooding of low lying areas. So much rains are considered as calamity.Hence there is so much problems with rain,if we get the right amount of it then we are happy but if it’s excessive then we are scared of our sufferings. Human life is made up of joys and sniffles,it is not just a bed of roses but there are thorns to avoid to enjoy the lovely roses that means if we are scared of thorns then we will never ever be able to enjoy the beauty of a rose. Let’s read a lovely passage from the holy book and try to find what message it has to convey to us during this hard times of life. After he had fed the people, Jesus made the disciples get into the boat and precede him to the other side of the sea, while he dismissed the crowds.
After doing so, he went up on the mountain by himself to pray. When it was evening he was there alone.
Meanwhile the boat, already a few miles offshore, was being tossed about by the waves, for the wind was against it.
During the fourth watch of the night, he came toward them, walking on the sea.
When the disciples saw him walking on the sea they were terrified. “It is a ghost,” they said, and they cried out in fear.
At once (Jesus) spoke to them, “Take courage, it is I; do not be afraid.”
Peter said to him in reply, “Lord, if it is you, command me to come to you on the water.”
He said, “Come.” Peter got out of the boat and began to walk on the water toward Jesus.
But when he saw how (strong) the wind was he became frightened; and, beginning to sink, he cried out, “Lord, save me!”
Immediately Jesus stretched out his hand and caught him, and said to him, “O you of little faith, why did you doubt?”
After they got into the boat, the wind died down.
Those who were in the boat paid him homage, saying, “Truly, you are the Son of God.”-MATHEW 14:22-33

From the reading we know how the disciples struggled for hours and they were at a fix ,didn’t know what they should do to get going then suddenly they noticed the Lord.Though they could not recognize him but he was there in the midst of their trouble.He said to them ,he assured them by saying, ‘it is I ;do not be afraid.”

My beloved friends ,we are all in trouble and at a fix as we can’t take the right decision,we hear news of people dying everyday,floods and heat waves and an Air India plane crash in Kerala,Beirut blast and so many other unforseen happenings are making life a real hell .Now the question is ;When will life be normal on this earth?The answer is,may be we are very close to a great message .A message of the second coming of the Messiah ,just the way he appeared to the disciples during the strong winds and waves in the sea when their boat tossed about the waves and had almost given up hope.

So don’t give up hope in God ,he has better plans for us .The disciples faced the strong winds and waves and only then the Lord appeared.Let us be brave and take up our little crosses and carry it towards Calvary and I am sure he is coming towards us with his huge Cross to relieve all us of our little crosses.

During this pandemic ,he is shouting aloud to everyone and saying “Take courage,it is I;do not be afraid.”

Thanks a lot for reading .

THE LORD IS GOOD.

I shall sing a song of joy and true love, the joy not of this earth but of above. The pleasures are followed by sorrow, little joy creates uncertain tomorrow.

Drink the honey of the living rock, make it subject of your daily talk. Taste and see the Lord is very good, with him no worry of your food.

Never doubt in God’s love & kindness, even you Don’t have much but less. He does all for the good of our life, let’s accept all that’s peace and strife.

The dead and the ailing in the street, the healthy,prosperous,poor & unfit; all are going through a litmus test, trust in him he will turn it into best.

We all need to clean the innerwears, it may cause illness is our worst fears. In the same way let’s clean our heart, entry of Satan’s virus may we shut.

Works of Satan though we can’t see, a clean body & soul will be virus free. With so much wisdom we’re hopeless, for treatment just look at Jesus’ face.

Thanks for your co-operation.

THE POWER OF SPARK

Ability is useless unless it’s used. One of the interesting facts of life is that most people die before knowing their capabilities,their talents.It is so,either because of lack of knowledge,guidance or determination.It is because of this reality we find the wrong person in the leader’s chair in many renowned concerns. This is because of the lack of farsightedness of the employers. All these facts have made human lives really miserable.We find the cruel person for a compassionate job,a dishonest person for a sacred job or a job that requires sanctity,an uncharitable person for a charitable society and so on.How are such organizations run? Some works must be done to retain the post otherwise the employers will remove him.Another important trend in today’s world is that the underprivileged people or the victims have learnt to tolerate all shorts of inhuman attitudes from the higher authorities. They have a wrong notion that they deserve the worst attitudes because beggars cannot be choosers.

The problem is finding the right person for the right job,there are enough efficient people to hold different portfolios but a good number of people are not ready to compromise.The malpractice of making use of helpless people illegally for one’s interest has become a common thing. There are states and countries where different organizations have been formed to create efficient workers, sportsmen etc.Here we can consider the performances of sportsmen in important games like SAFGAMES,OLYMPIC GAMES.Some countries always top the list of medals whereas some so called powerful countries dance around with one or two medals for ages.They have no interest in making use of human resources in this regard despite having human resource ministries.If they think of using it then there is politics, there is a question of influences and money power and so on.

There is a famous saying of William Shakespeare ‘Some are born great,some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them’. This means everyone has a chance to be a champion in his /her respective field of work.So there is no question of disappointment. I remember the fact that the job of a barber was once looked down upon but today it is considered an art for which one must undergo rigorous training and a great barber of our time is a celebrity.So if the requirement to excell in any field is complete then there’s no need of looking back.

After all a few are born great with silver spoons in their mouths but the rest of the people struggle hard to achieve greatness.So why be gloomy for failures?Just cheer up and prepare to conquer the world.There was a time when the youths didn’t know what they should do to earn but today with the help of the world wide websites many chances have opened up, so many options are there to follow,so many ways of having online classes from experts for different vocations.Just decide what needs to be done and follow the path of your choice and be an expert to be a celebrity.The world is ever ready to accept anyone who is skilled and confident of his/her capabilities.

Remember, a talented person is like a valuable diamond so your whereabouts cannot suppress you in any way.Make use of the spark in you just like a match stick,if it is lighted and thrown in a proper place then it will be a devastating fire, thousands of fire engines won’t be able to put out such fires.So when you know you have it in you don’t just ignore it make use of it and you will find success is knocking on your door.

Reading a great book ‘KNOWING GOD’

The talk of the season is Covid 19 and it’s the cause of our headache today.We all know that everything seems to be uncertain.Strong and stout people are wishing adieu every day and every moment .All our hard work is of no use today ,Our status and wealth is also of no use today yet there is something that is very soothing and is of so much strength that those who have acquired it or are trying to acquire it are living a peaceful life even during this pandemic.Are you really interested in knowing it ?Aren’t you tempted to acquire it?Don’t you think that to save your beloved ones you must acquire it?If our heart is leaping with joy to receive that strength to live a normal life during this period of uncertainty then please don’t stay back but come forward to receive it gladly .

Yes,it is a relationship with the person who has control over everything on earth and in heaven.We require it to be truly healthy,wealthy and powerful.we need to know God to have full control of all that is there around us and above us.Yes my beloved friends it’s a lovely book named “KNOWING GOD” authored by J.I Packer.It’s a mindblowing book to harness the power we have in ourselves.We are not at all helpless but we do not know the art of using God’s grace and I tell you all to read the book if you have the time.

All of us are related with the Omnipotent yet we do not know him well.It is like a conjugal relationship where a man loves a woman for decades but in the eleventh year due to a misunderstanding the relationship is broken.They decide to live separately. In the same way sometimes our relationship or the bond with the living God is also very weak because we have not known him well.This book has elaborately explained almost all the important verses of the chapters of the Holy Bible.Reading the bible and understanding it are two different sides of a coin, I mean a coin in our hands has both the sides but to know what is there on the bottom of the coin we must turn it otherwise we will know only about the top side.This great book will help to turn everything inside us to understand what God is trying to tell us through the verses.

The part of the book that has touched my soul is “THOU OUR GUIDE” .I quote”To many Christian’s, guidance is a chronic problem.Why?Not because they doubt that divine guidance is a fact,but because they are sure it is.They know that God can guide,and has promised to guide,every Christian believer.Books and friends and public speakers tell them how guidance has worked in the lives of others.Their fear ,therefore,is not no guidance should be available for them,but they may miss the guidance which God provides through some fault of their own.When they sing: Guide me,O thou art Jehovah, Pilgrim through this barren land; I am weak,but Thou art mighty, Hold me with Thy powerful hand: Bread of heaven Feed me now and evermore -they have no doubt that God is able to lead and to feed,as they ask.But they remain anxious,because they are not certain of their own receptiveness to the guidance God offers. Not all,however,have yet come so far.In our day ,as we frequently noted already,knowledge of God has been obscured -turned ,in effect ,into ignorance of God -by the twisting of our thoughts about God.Thus ,the reality of God’s rule,God’s speech,God’s independence, God’s moral goodness,even God’s personality,has been queried not only outside the Church but inside it also.This has made it hard for many to believe that divine guidance can exist at all.How can it,if God is not the sort of being who can ,or will,give it?- and that is what,in any way or another ,all these suggestions imply.It is worthwhile therefore,to recall at this point some of the basic truths which divine guidance presupposes”.

This is only a part of the book and there are so many other mindblowing facts to read in it.I am really enjoying it.It is strengthening my faith in the love of the Lord. Thanks a lot for reading and if you wish to be a part of the evangelization work then please share it .

Sufferings of Souls

Soul cries when it is wounded or imprisoned.What is hurting the soul as to make it cry?It is nothing other than sin.

He who lives sinfully,belongs to the devil(1Jn.3:8).So when we commit sin we get an external master.If we repeat sin we get many masters.Each one tries to give different directions even contradictory directions at the same time.The person will then be in confusion and eventually suffer of mental disorientation. Jesus gave an example of such a person in the land of Gerasene.A man with an unclean spirit came to Jesus.The man lived in tombs and no one could secure him any more not even with chains.All night and all day,among the tombs and in the mountains,he would howl and gnash himself with stones.Catching sight of Jesus he ran up and fell at the feet of Jesus.When Jesus asked him,”What is your name” ,he replied,”legion,and there are many of us”.There were six thousand of them.These six thousand masters gave him different directions and tortured him.He became mad and tried to kill himself .It is the same with any one who is under sin.We must have only one master namely Jesus and one father namely God the father.            (Mt.23:9-10)

The Bible constantly reminds us of the dangers of sin.Secretly killing the child in the womb or openly killing someone is a grave sin because the cry of the murdered soul goes to God for justice.Cain killed Abel in the open field .The earth opened it’s mouth and drank the blood of the innocent Abel.This blood cried from the ground .Cain could not hear the sound.No one but only God could hear that sound.God came immediately and asked Cain,where is your brother Abel?Cain excused himself saying,”I do not know”.No excuse is valid  before God.”They cry in anguish and God hears and rescues them from all their troubles.He is near to the broken hearted,he helps those whose spirit is crushed”(Psalm 34:17-18 )
