So maybe I was a bit too anxious about everything. I completely freaked out when I realized that I wasn’t seeing results in almost all the areas of my life. But I’ve come to realize what Phil 4:6-9 really means.
6 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.
7 And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
8 Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things.
9 The things you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you.
P.S: Ever notice how I say “so maybe..” for almost every certainty in my life?
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.
St. Andrews house had their Farewell Dinner ( read free food for invitees) today in college. I have not seen any activity undertaken by a student body come out nearly perfect. Hats off to all you Sandy’s. I had a mock date with Misha. I’ve never gone out for a date. So my friend and I decided to be ‘with each other’ for the heck of it.
I think of all the people I could choose to think of to talk about this, Sid would be the friend I will miss the most. Sid invited me for the Hoste’s Annual function which was followed by dinner.
My Dad left for Brazil tonight. It was a pleasant month with him. We went to Jaipur and we had our mandatory fight. But this time he got right back around. Surprising, but that is only cuz of God’s mircale with the ticket situation. So now I miss him. The first time in 20 years I miss my dad, I wish he stuck around for a lil while longer. I kinda got used to doing normal dad-son stuff. Like talk about stuff and issues. Even if it means that he starts talking on how ‘I should keep my mouth shut and mind my own buisness’ at times.
I guess you get so used to things in somepeople no matter its negative even that you start to miss exactly that in them. I think it’s the perfect irony in our imperfection.
I prayed for him. He is always worrying about his job and stuff. I don’t see why. With 15 years of experience as a Chef and now as a Sous Chef he should get a job back home easliy. However he doesnt agree with me. But on the bright side he didnt tell me to mind my own buisness. Yet. He kissed me goodbye. I owe a lot to my old man.
