    “All the labour of man is for his mouth, and yet the soul is not satisfied.” Ecclesiastes 6:7 One of the God’s greatest blessings we consider in our lives is to be employed and earn for our bread. For most of us getting a job is certainly realized as God’s gift and we pray about doing our duties well, getting recognitions, promotions, hikes and so on. When God blesses us with all these, we are left with very little time or no time to pray and converse with God. I’ve often felt ashamed of myself and wonder how “I prayed …

    “My soul wait silently for God alone, for my expectation is from Him.” Psalm 62:5 It is hard to believe half of this year has already come to a close with the swift passing of time. We might have started this year expecting a lot of things or with some planning for the year. Looking back sometimes might make us feel that we are still at the starting point without markedly making any progress, if things did not turn the way we have planned. This is what happened to me exactly when I got the news of my scientific project …

    For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which GOD prepared beforehand that we should walk in them. Ephesians 2:10 Recently I had taken my family to the most famous Louvre Museum in France, and all of them were very much eager to see the Famous Mona Lisa painting. The place was all crowded and getting a view of the painting which was carefully and securely kept behind a bullet proof frame was not that easy. My grandmother remarked “Even the replica paintings sold outside the museum are much bigger and brighter than the original, but …

    The Lord knows the ways of the righteous. Psalm 1:6 Often times we need to suffer blames for things we have not done and possibly each time when it is so we have no choice but to endure the pain. Have we ever realized we are so blessed that all our complications in life dissolves to nothing, as the One who created us knows our ways? Over the last couple of years I have personally been through incidents where I have been trapped into situations which completely pictured me as a different person. Probably it was a result of someone …

    A new year’s prayer

    Swiftly doth the time fly, and another New year lies ahead Oh! My past year resolutions, should it be to this year instead? Did I add any soul last year, or At least did mine stay fit, Did I run the race with cheer, or did I incapably quit?   Yet again that time of year, to reflect the past and start anew; And of the hard times tackled, self-interrogate “How could you?” It never could have been the strength in me, nor from those around T’was felt as unexplainable strength from a Loving wing surround!   Besides all those …

    The birth

    The birth of Grace in utmost disgrace In this world, as Son of a virgin’s womb What shame He might have had to face With all those tales people around assume! He knew the suffering of being such child And that of a mother with undeserving guilt; Panic not, if thy ways seem wild For His life too was on such shame built!   The birth of a King in lowly cattle shed Of some strange land with no help around; What humble place to lay the King’s head Where His cry with harmonious bleats surround. He knew from birth …

    For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of GOD which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:38-39. To sum this verse up – “There is NOTHING that can separate us from the love of God”. What an incredible blessing it is! And to add more to it, we need to do NOTHING to earn His love because His Grace provides us this love, though we do not deserve. …

    In everything give thanks

    “Thanks” is one of those few words that parents teach their children from the time they begin to speak. Isn’t it very cute and sweet when a little child says “thanks” without being prompted when being gifted or offered something, bringing joy and pride to the parents when their child is considered well-mannered, polite and grateful by everyone around.  “Thanks” is an everyday word we use with numerous people, friends or strangers to acknowledge something we have received from them. But, most of the time we take our everyday blessings for granted and do not feel a need to give …

    “Blessed are the poor in spirit for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.” Matthew 5:3. This verse is a part of the Sermon on the Mount given by Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ to the disciples.(Matthew 5:1-12) It seems a bit weird to be blessed in poverty and to me it seemed even weirder the fact of being poor in “Spirit”. The Bible often explains the meaning of this word “Spirit” relating to light, life, strength or even God Himself as in the following verses “The spirit of a man is the lamp of the Lord searching all the …

    Jesus is alive

    Being threatened to death and having witnessed the persecution of her fellow workers, a missionary sent from Southern to Northern part of India was filled with fear and confusions. As she was crying to the Lord amidst the painful situations, she saw a dream: ‘Few women including her were seated around the corpse of Jesus, wailing and mourning over His death. Agony and bitterness choked their throats. All of a sudden this missionary saw few tall men rushing towards them with weapons in their hands to kill them. Fear engulfed, and her heart was filled with horror of what is …
