The joy of having a new phone is outlived especially if you got a new one after you lost an inexpensive phone. I lost my Moto Razr v3i a couple of months ago. To recompensate for the loss I bought myself the cheapest phone available in the market. So cheap that I dont even know it’s model no. But now I lost that too. This time it really really was NOT my fault. I fell of the bike and there was nothing I could do to NOT lose it.
I’m praying for an E71 or an E 63. JEHOVAH JIREH! I know God is well able to provide all things in His time. Just so you all know, even if He doesn’t give me either of the two choices, God is still well able to provide all things in His time.
Got thrown out of a coffee cafe tonite for opening the Bible and preaching the Word of God to my friend. Apparently according to one customer “believers can’t preach in CCD”. I don’t know who he is, or what he wanted. And lets not get into the “how dare he”. Lets pray.
We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not driven to despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed; always carrying in the body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be manifested in our bodies. For we who live are always being given over to death for Jesus’ sake, so that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our mortal flesh.
Indeed, all who desire to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted,—2 Timothy 3:12
Yet if anyone suffers as a Christian, let him not be ashamed, but let him glorify God in that name.—1 Peter 4:12-14, 16
for as it is written in
35Who will separate us from the love of Christ? Will tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
36Just as it is written,
FOR YOUR SAKE WE ARE BEING PUT TO DEATH ALL DAY LONG;
WE WERE CONSIDERED AS SHEEP TO BE SLAUGHTERED.”
37But in all these things we overwhelmingly )conquer through Him who loved us.
38For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers,
39nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
I ride to work everyday, even when I dont have work I am usually on the bike. I can safely say that Indian roads are to be experienced and learned.
Breaking a traffic signal is of no value today. It only costs 100 Rs to get away. Lesser if you want to bribe the official.Trust me, the only time you will NOT consider breaking it , is if you seen cops right in front of you or you have seen too many cops on that particular day to keep you alert.
Im not saying that I dont ever break signals. But I dont do it anymore. And if you catch me doing it, slap me.
I’ve noticed this. If everyone else is breaking the signal you will too even if you aren’t a regular at it.It is very easy to go with the flow. “Why are you doing it? I dont know. Because everyone else is.” For some it doesnt even matter if there are cops, they run away.
Its very difficult to stop at the signal when everyone else is breaking it. Even more to do so before the white line which is drawn before the zebra crossing.
But when you DO stop, you’ll witness a miracle. Don’t bother about the fool honking behind you to get you to break the signal. Wait for the signal to turn green. Suddenly you will see motorists stop too. Why? Cuz one of them saw you do it. And then everyone starts to stop for the signal.
My point is this- If a normal action of following normal logical laws can influence others to do the same, HOW MUCH MORE when you start living for Jesus Christ. How much more when you show Jesus in your life. Dont break God’s laws. Be an example to others.
So are you ready to make a difference today? Start with a smile.
The best part of sharing the Gospel is not
1. That you are fulfilling the Great Commission….. or that you are 2. the body of Christ on Earth or even the fact that 3. others get to hear about Jesus’s great love.
Of course all of these are very important and valid……
but the best part of giving the Gospel is that satisfying feeling in your Spirit, knowing that the last 3 hours you just spent talking the truth makes all the difference in the life of that person in eternity.
So, who did you give the Gospel to today? You’d rather hear it from a blog than from God.
So here is what I have been upto.
1. I studied for all my exams.
2. Wrote all my exams. Some were good. some were ok and probably one was bad.
3. I now have a chastity ring, for all who dont know what one is, It is a ring that you wear that symbolizes your intention of staying singleminded on the one partner that God has prepared for you. No, it is NOT cool to put it on your finger and see if it fits you.
4. Getting better on the Bass. Need to practice more.
5. Was back @ Zombie girl and now I’m out of it too.
6. Trusted God for a financial breakthrough and got it. Twice. Praise JESUS!
7. Trusting Him for the impossible. Someone once said “Aim for the impossible,so that without God you cant do it at all.” Oh this is impossible all right. Well atleast without Him.
8. I got a Job. I work for the Church now, in the Media team.
9. My Dad is coming down next month. Mostly Im getting a new Pc. Or a laptop if I am lucky. Really lucky.
10.I’ve cut down on Pepsi. Trying to stick to ‘once a week only’. God is faithful.
11. I have a dentists appointment tomorrow.
Feeling Lonely is a terrible feeling that can have varying results. Being a loner and feeling Lonely are two diverse realities. If you are a loner, you cant be involved in being described as an ‘talker’ or a ‘hug whore’. However you can be feeling lonely, and not be a loner!
I could think of doing tons of things as to ‘kill’ my boredom. Take for instance where I am right now. I’m inside a Mall. But this is definitely not helping. Watching others walk around in pairs or groups avails much. Crossword-the bookstore didn’t help either. They didn’t have a good collection of books or Graphic Novels.
So why am I here? Not the place in my life but on this Lone Wodden Box? What are ‘ Lone Wooden Boxes’? Well they are seats/benches you see in Mall’s where people sit when they are lonely. This Mall has Wooden ones, hence the name.You probably think I got lonely and went to the Mall. NO. I’m here because I had time to kill. The reason of my loneliness is prayerlessness. So how do I get out of this situation? I definitely don’t want to pray since the lack of it got me here in the first place, I really dont want to do that right now.Or I could go ahead and start a conversation with one of these lovely women next to me. I could also flirt. I haven’t flirted in a long time. But the Ring on my finger forbids that irrelevant thought. And Hypocrisy is not my cup of tea. I could also run opposite on the escalators. But I’ll be tireder. So no can do. With less than 50Rs in my wallet I’m running out of ideas.
I checked out the washroom too, if you ever want to know how well a place is run, check the loo. My Observation at Oberoi Mall: Pretty good. So much aesthetically better than other malls. Also when you go to the loo do you notice how people always stare at you? Why do they want to do that? I’m not doing anything that mankind hasn’t done already!
Suddenly, I’m not lonely anymore. Why? I simply prayed to my Father in Heaven. After all He is faithful and just to forgive my sins as I confess it to Him.
So when lonely, pray.
the sun climbed the day
toward the west
as the world took rest
a lady lay
on the cold bed of pain and sweat.
Bloodied hands took that was naught
to destroy that was to be brought.
As she fell asleep
in one corner,
the unbehest Figure starts to weep
over the murder
of HIS own dear.
A decade and 7 years on,
i hear the wrong
her sorrow, ringing with mine.
How i wish, i’d know you unborn
today i mourned,
the death of my forlorn sis.
I want everyone who reads this to know the truth. You may ask – What is truth? Pontius Pilate asked the same question two thousand years ago. The same question rings today in the mind of men who walk the earth.Standford university says it aptly- Truth is one of the central subjects in philosophy. It is also one of the largest. Truth has been a topic of discussion in its own right for thousands of years.
My friends listen to me. This is Truth that happened on the 22nd of march. I’ve heard it happen, I believed without a shred of doubt when I heard it so, I’ve seen the after effects after it happened so, but I had never seen it with my very own eyes.
Acts 9:v 34″Aeneas,” Peter said to him, “Jesus Christ heals you. Get up and take care of your mat.” Immediately Aeneas got up. v35 All those who lived in Lydda and Sharon saw him and turned to the Lord.
Today in Church during service I saw a man walk in with crutches. He is an ordinary man, only he couldn’t walk on his own. While we worshiped God he came in the front and started to walk, run and Praise the God of the Heaven and Earth. He was healed instantly just as Aeneas was. I’ve seen the blind see, I have seen the deaf hear, I have seen people with spectacles completely healed of their defective vision- my brother is a living testimony of this. That man went home not on his crutches but on his legs- the way God made man to walk!
v 5 But he was pierced for our transgressions,
he was crushed for our iniquities;
the punishment that brought us peace was upon him,
and by his wounds we are healed.
As I saw God doing the same acts he did as Man on this earth my heart lept with un-told Joy and Praise! I could not contain it. I had to tell this to everyone. Jesus can heal you.And If you go and read the rest of Acts chapter 9:32-40, you will read of A woman named Tabitha or Dorcas being raised from the Dead by Peter. Jesus can even raise the Dead. All power and authority has been given to Christ Jesus, who died for mine and your Sin. Trust in Him today. He knows you.
This is the Truth – John 14:6
v6 Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
Saw this entry in my diary. I started to maintain a Diary a couple of years ago, jotting down what I thought of our God. Thoughts translated into words, words flowed into verse. I now have three of them. Not all of them are filled with the above. Some have notes from lectures.:)
15th June, Friday 2007.
“It’s beenTwo years since I’ve known Queenie. One full year after the break up…….”
I go on to ask God why it had to be so. I had loads of questions but very few answers. One place it says ” If you please, one day let me smile down on what I’ve written with her” I don’t think that is ever possible. But, Hey! I’m smiling right?
So “MY GOD” is one of the first songs I wrote for God.
Check these two out. Will post more when I get the time.
Heal my heart and make it clean
Open up my eyes to the things unseen
Show me how to love like you have loved me
Break my heart from what breaks yours
Everything I am for your kingdoms cause
As I go from nothing to
– Hosanna(from Savior King by Hillsongs)
Its that Time of the year again, where I look back and thank God for everything.
Christmas is special to me because not only is it the month when everyone is happy, even if it means just for Christmas but I get to tell everyone about Jesus’ Love. Unconditional Love.
Christmas this year was GREAT! I did everything I had planned earlier. I wish I had prayed more. On Christmas eve, it got a bit lonely watching some of my friends go out for parties and/or hang around with their better half. I missed having that for some time. Ok, so i’ll admit half an hour. I really did. But I thought about it then I realized It didn’t matter really. As long as ‘she’ is having a great time too. Dont ask me who ‘She’ is I dont know.
New Years is going to be fantastic. Im gonna spend time with the most special person in my life!
I love you Lord, I worship you
Hope which was lost, now stands renewed
I give my life to honor this
The love of Christ, the savior king
