Lent – Day 21 – More Closer Much Deeper


Your tone of conversation with an individual reflects the depth of your relationship with that individual

Imagine hypothetically we know the exact date/ time we will die and we also know the truth that anything is possible with God. In such a situation, our natural human response if given a chance to converse with God would be to either plead with God to extend our lifetime or get angry at God for bringing such a wrath on us while coming to a conclusion that ‘ God does not love me anymore ‘ state of mind. How we react to such a situation really depends on our personal relationship with God.

Jesus was going to have the most agonising and gruesome death on the Cross. A death that’s most painful and shameful, dying a sinner’s death being a sinless man. In His human form, His final act before his death was His heartfelt prayer to His Father. Jesus did not get angry at God that He has led Him to this or felt abandoned by God when God who is mighty and able could take away this kind of death for Jesus , did not choose to.

Rather Jesus pours His heart out to God, calling Him ‘ Abba, Father ‘ . How heart-warming ! Jesus knew that God His Father is all able, all powerful and that He loves Him very deeply. Jesus also knows that is Father is a loving God who cares deeply for His creation and His plans are always perfect. Jesus was able to set that tone of ‘trust’ and ‘ love’ and ‘confidence’ even in His final conversation with God. That reflects the deep intimate loving relationship that Jesus shared with His Father

Abba, Father,” He said, “everything is possible for you.

Take this cup from me.

Yet not what I will, but what You will

Mark 14:36


I love it when my child comes to me boldly and without fear asking what she wants. My child knows I love her and that I want her to be happy. So she has the freedom to approach me anytime with the confidence and trust that Mommy will act in the best interest for her, even if that is a NO sometimes. The tone of my child’s conversation with me reflects the depth of our relationship. A relationship is built on sharing selfless love, effective communication, caring for each other and sacrifices made for each other in each other’s best interests.

This day of lent, stop and reflect for a moment very honestly. How is your tone of conversation with God ? Are you mad at God for something ? Are you deeply disappointed with God for that long awaited prayer answer ? Are you frustrated with God for not giving what you want ? or simply you are living in a denial that God does not love you or care for you anymore ?

Well, I have a good news for you. This is the truth about God from His Holy Word.

God is kind, merciful, patient, extravagant in love and full of blessings.

My prayer for you today is that you get to know Him and experience Him in a way you have never seen before , which will give a fresh revelation of His love for you. May your tone of conversation with God reflect your deep, loving , trustworthy relationship with God, now and forever more

Change your life, not just your clothes.
    Come back to God, your God.
And here’s why: God is kind and merciful.
    He takes a deep breath, puts up with a lot,
This most patient God, extravagant in love,
    always ready to cancel catastrophe.
Who knows? Maybe He’ll do it now,
    maybe He’ll turn around and show pity.
Maybe, when all’s said and done,
    there’ll be blessings full and robust for your God!

Joel 2:13-14

Stay Blessed in Him


Lent – Day 16 – FAITH requires ACTION


What we believe becomes who we are. It reflects in all aspects of our character, behaviour, relationships and the way we live our lives .

God encourages us through His Word to have faith that is filled with action, out of love and reverence for God. And not merely do God talks without any God love in it. He calls it utter nonsense when someone does that

Dear friends, do you think you’ll get anywhere in this if you learn all the right words but never do anything? Does merely talking about faith indicate that a person really has it? For instance, you come upon an old friend dressed in rags and half-starved and say, “Good morning, friend! Be clothed in Christ! Be filled with the Holy Spirit!” and walk off without providing so much as a coat or a cup of soup—where does that get you? Isn’t it obvious that God-talk without God-acts is outrageous nonsense?

James 2:14-17

One thing that stands out among the biblical heroes mentioned in the Bible is the unshakeable faith they had in their God, their Father AND  what they did about their faith in their practical lives. They knew that it was impossible to please God without faith. They had the confidence in what they hoped for and assurance in what they do not see.

In the world’s eyes ,Noah appeared foolish when he started building the ark but Noah believed in what God said and put his faith to action. He was not a people pleaser rather a God pleaser. Noah was not afraid to stand out as he trusted in God’s plan . He built the ark just the way God had instructed him and saved his family

By faith, Noah built a ship in the middle of dry land. He was warned about something he couldn’t see, and acted on what he was told. The result? His family was saved. His act of faith drew a sharp line between the evil of the unbelieving world and the rightness of the believing world. As a result, Noah became intimate with God

Hebrews 11:7

Abraham put to action his extraordinary, unwavering belief in God when God told him to travel to an unknown place and God did not tell him where he was going.

Abraham said yes to God’s call to travel to an unknown place that would become his home. When he left he had no idea where he was going. By an act of faith he lived in the country promised him, lived as a stranger camping in tents. Isaac and Jacob did the same, living under the same promise. Abraham did it by keeping his eye on an unseen city with real, eternal foundations—the City designed and built by God. evil of the unbelieving world and the rightness of the believing world. As a result, Noah became intimate with God

Hebrews 11:8

Hebrews 11 lists all the biblical heroes that put their faith to action, trusting God one step at a time in their unknown journey. They had complete confidence that even though they have no idea about how their journey will end, they trusted in His promises and had unwavering faith that when God ordains their steps there is nothing to be afraid of or worried about . They looked to God for help and just followed what God had asked them to do. They put their faith to action.

For the reflection part, how does that ‘faith in action’ work for you and me in our practical lives ? Ephesians 5:1-2 encourages us to ‘wake up from our sleep’

Watch what God does, and then you do it, like children who learn proper behavior from their parents. Mostly what God does is love you. Keep company with him and learn a life of love. Observe how Christ loved us. His love was not cautious but extravagant. He didn’t love in order to get something from us but to give everything of himself to us. Love like that

Ephesians 5:1-2

We all have mountains in our own private battles that we are struggling with. Of course, we all have been praying for that new job, for that life partner, for that new home , for that new car, for that intimacy with God. Other than praying, are we doing anything about it ? Any ACTION to co-operate with God for His promises to come true in our lives ?

I am a strong believer in prayer and His miracle working power. I also strongly believe that God wants us to use that mustard seed of faith that He has given us , to work along with Him, to co-operate with Him to make His plans establish on this earth for His glory. It’s God that puts that dream , that desire in your heart that you have right now and probably He has confirmed that through a prophecy. It’s time to trust His word and set into action

God has that wonderful job for you. But He needs you to use that God given talents in your interview from your end so He can sprinkle His favour for the best outcome. God will heal you but He needs you to go to the doctor and have your medication. Of course, if God has promised you a certain ministry, you need to equip yourself in that by studying and learning in that area.

My prayer for you today is that May this day be a day of ‘faith filled with action’ for you.

May you find that little mustard seed of faith that God put in your heart and put that faith to action TODAY

Because you’re not yet taking God seriously,” said Jesus. “The simple truth is that if you had a mere kernel of faith, a poppy seed, say, you would tell this mountain, ‘Move!’ and it would move. There is nothing you wouldn’t be able to tackle.”

Matt 17:20

Hearing From God

jeremiah 33_3

In all the hustle and bustle of 2018 new year goals, I decided 2 things for my life this year

  • Intentionally stay healthy by exercising and keeping fit with the food choices I make
  • Intentionally study the Word of God and hear from Him more

When I made these new year goals, I was in Cairns on a holiday with my family. I knew in my heart that I had not written a blog in a while but honestly I just did not get anything to write. In the midst of me having a break from the church Sunday school duties, holiday with family and time off from work, I had lost that connection to His gentle whispers and my secret place with God. I just felt too busy resting my usual busy self. It was not a dryness I was experiencing but I was just fading away into my life with my other priorities . I did not realise that until I had an encounter with God in my dream

I love it when God speaks to me in the language I understand and relate to. 2 days back I went to bed asking God to speak to me in my dreams. I kept a notebook ready near my bed and told God ‘I want to be your spokesperson and I am ready for the download ‘. Then went to bed in anticipation. Funny enough, God spoke to me in technical terms and pictures, so apt for a IT technical person like me. I was very impressed with my Jesus, I should say, as always

Keep Moving ON to Keep Going ON


I absolutely love my Sunday afternoon naps, for I know after a ‘refreshing’ nap, comes my ‘ever challenging mission’ of cleaning my home for the week ahead.

Becoming a mother has so far been one of the most rewarding and joyous experience in my life. In saying so, in order for me to keep my ‘joy’, I need to constantly and continually work on it. Parents of young toddlers can totally relate to what I am saying ‘Toddlers and Cleaning don’t go together, they JUST don’t ‘

‘Norm’ in the Normal – David Defeats Goliath

Don't Fear The Uncharted

Bible teaches us that David was a man after God’s own heart. David had his own success’s and failures just like any of us but what made David a cut above the rest was that his heart was always looking to God. He had a deep desire to follow God in-spite of what we know from the Bible that David was far from perfect. He had unshakable faith in the God He believed and worshiped.

If we just look at the extra-ordinary way of David becoming a king, his journey is an excellent reminder to us that God orchestrates His plans in His own ways and in His own perfect Timing.
David was chosen ‘ King’ while Saul was still a King. Samuel, the last judge of Israel is led by God to the family of Jesse in Bethlehem. Based on their appearances, Samuel assumes that the 1st son Eliab is God’s replacement for Saul. But clearly Eliab was not God’s choice. Then he passes Abinadab, Shammah and 7 of his son’s who were not God’s choices for leading his people.

1 Sam 16:17 God Says ” Do not consider the appearance or height, for I have rejected him. The Lord does not look at the things that man looks at. Man looks at outward appearance, bu the Lord looks at the heart “

When all this was happening at Jess’s place, David who was a shepherd boy was actually tending his sheep. He had to be called for before the Lord confirms that infact He is the appointed king

1 Sam 16:12  “He was ruddy, had beautiful eyes and was handsome “

And the Lord said ” Arise, anoint him, for this is he “

v 13 Then Samuel took the horn of oil and anointed him in the midst of his brothers. And the spirit of the Lord rushed upon David from that day forward “

Though he was anointed the King, David had to wait for almost 15 years before he could actually reign as a King. He had his own journey of being molded and shaped by God.

We see God’s favor with David throughout , especially when he became Saul’s favorite armor bearer and skillfully played for him when the evil spirit tormented Saul ( v 14 )

David is described as ‘ a man who is skilled in playing the lyre, a man of valor, a man of war, prudent in speech, a man of good presence and the Lord is with him ‘

This was a bit of history on how David was chosen to be a king. Let’s look at the extra-ordinary story of how he defeated Goliath
