A constant prayer

Posted in Inspiration, My life

Yet another day to remember

It is always a joy to look back and be awestruck at how wonderfully God has carried you through the years.

Looking back to this exact moment one year before, I was probably sitting up on my bed wondering why I am in this new city, all by myself. I did not even have a confirmed job letter or a joining date. I was hatching escape plans in case I had to leave the city the very next day.

Little did I know, God was answering my forgotten prayer:

Lord, place me at the right place, at the right time

And He answered it so beautifully 🙂

He placed me in an amazing community of love, concern and fellowship.

When it was too hard to carry on and I just wanted to give up, I am glad that God had placed me here with these amazing people who held me up and supported me with prayers and hugs 🙂

Once again, He has proved that He is forever FAITHFUL and His plans are always the BEST!

My God never gave up on me; never left me halfway. Yes, He is faithful!

In my joy, He laughed with me. In my lonely hours, He held me close. In the darkest nights, He was still there. He never left!!

How much longer??

How much longer will we tolerate pagan cultures?

How much longer till we teach our kids the truth and not the tradition?

How much longer has He to wait, till someone says “Here I am Lord, to stand as per your standard of holiness”?

An impromptu warning

This is not from my list of schedule posts but something that I feel so strong in my spirit to share, now and here.

To all those who are waiting on God’s promises but feeling a bit weary and tired of waiting, this is for you:

You are feeling really tempted to do something instead of waiting on God.  It has been a long while in the waiting room and you are running out of patience.

Your thoughts are trailing towards “Maybe God wants me to do something” “Maybe this is the door, I need to knock harder” “Maybe it is God who is waiting on me to get up and act”.

The voice inside you is doubtful and confusing. You cant seem to fix your mind on what decision to take: to WAIT or to ACT?

Believe me, “Our God is not a God of confusion”. When He speaks it is always CLEAR. His voice will calm the turmoil and there will be divine peace. Wait for it. Let Him do the work in you while you wait.

He has the perfect timing!! He is the best event manager. He is more than capable in turning your mourning into dancing.

He doesn’t need you to give the start so He can finish off the rest. Instead wait for Him to start. Let His step be the first step. 

So, no matter how much you are tempted to do it, please DO NOT try to help God.

I CAN HANDLE IT; ALL BY MYSELF!!

-God

It makes me smile

Here is a verse that makes me smile every single time I read it:

Colossians 3:13

Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone.

It is a great assurance to know that God does not command something without knowing how difficult it might seem for us.

I know anyone who reads this will agree that “It is not so easy to love every single person you meet”. We are commanded to love each person and sometimes it is soooo difficult.

It is not because we are not good people or because we didnt pray or because we dont wanna be like Jesus. No, it is not all that.

It just is too difficult because people are different and stupid and crazy and adamant and…..

Well, in short, they are not what we want them to be.

And that is when God tells us to ‘Bear with each other’

He knows it is not going to be easy. He knows it is going to take an effort. He knows it might drive you crazy and yet : ‘Bear with each other’.

Forbear each other’s burdens and pain. Forbear their nonsense and still say “God loves you and even though I don’t want to, I love you too. Because He loved me even when I was crazier than you.”

Colossians 3:13

Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone.

Memorise this verse because I can assure you, you might need it a couple of times a week or maybe even more than that.

Say it and ask for guidance when you have to deal with tough people. Do not go with the ‘flesh instincts’ as it might cause some serious damage to relationships and maybe even a broken jaw!! 😀

And if you have testimonies of how the heavenly wisdom helped you from doing something stupid, please do comment below. It might encourage another brother/sister struggling with patience and battles of relationships.

COUNT THE PENNIES…

Here is some encouragement for the bloggers who doubt “Am I even counted?”.

M³Ministries

People will mock small beginnings because they can’t see beyond the end of their own nose. Hand them a tissue and move on.

Let’s use the following example.

A church starts with a vision given to a pastor by the Holy Spirit. That pastor may share the vision with his wife and they pray about it together as they develop the vision. Now there three involved: God, the pastor, the pastor’s wife.

They may set up their living room and invite a few people over and begin their Sunday service. One person they invited might show up. Now they have four involved.

They don’t let the fact that only one person showed up stop their vision. They continue in it. Eventually that one person invites a couple they know to go with them to a Sunday service. Now there are six involved.

That couple knows two other couples who have…

Another conversation

I know I post a lot of me-and-God conversations here. And I know that most of them also makes me look like a crazy woman. 😀

Yet, I love posting those because I want to share how the soft voice of God clears my doubts, answers my questions and encourages me to look at things from a different angle.

So, recently I found myself in the midst of a situation I never thought I would be in. Continue reading “Another conversation”
