Lent – Day 21 – More Closer Much Deeper

Yourwill

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

LoveCareShare – Mission Accomplished -Thank You

Dear Friends,

WE DID IT !

Together, we raised $350 which has been donated today to a local food organisation ‘ SecondBite’ , who work with over 1,200 community food programs across Australia to redistribute rescued food to those in our community who need it most

The organisations they partner with make a real difference to people’s lives, providing food, support, hope and friendship

By providing surplus fresh, nutritious food, completely free of charge, they break down barriers to accessing healthy food.

In the 2015-2016 financial year, SecondBite provided the equivalent of 20 million meals to Australians doing it tough. From pantry style services, to community meals, soup kitchens and emergency relief hampers, they typically offer more than just a meal. Connecting people to their communities, linking in services and providing a safe space are just some of the ways that their partners help their recipients get back on their feet.

With around 2 million people experiencing food insecurity in Australia, hunger doesn’t discriminate. The reasons behind this are complicated, and they strive to continue to actively support the right to a dignified existence for all Australians.

Check them out on https://www.secondbite.org/

Give yourself a BIG Pat for stepping out to do your small part of contributing whatever you can. With our $350 we have helped put 1400 healthy meals on empty plates ! That is HUGE !

May the Lord bless your Home this Christmas as you continue to shine His light in all practical ways you can 🙂 May 2018 be a year of overflowing and abundance for you and your families !

Take Care

Much Love and Blessings

Sindu 🙂

Quit 1 Coffee =$4= Bless Someone’s Christmas

Hey Friends,

Massive thanks to all that are contributing and making this dream a reality !We are at 7:9% of our goal and slowly progressing . I am super proud that my 4 year old is also onboard with us. Hannah had listed her unused toys and we are selling them on our local platform. Hannah is happy to give that to this cause . As a 4 year old all that she understands is she is going to make someone happy this Christmas.

We often underestimate our potential and our ability to give. It’s the heart that matters.

Just visualise this. There is a big ship sailing in the sea which starts sinking suddenly. There are people thrown into the water without choice due to this catastrophy and people that manage to be safe on board, try to help that are sinking. If they know swimming some risk their lives, dive in and rescue people. If they don’t know swimming, they try to throw life boats at the people drowning so they can climb onto it and stay safe. Some try to get help calling services

This is just a metaphor and the situation in real life is more or less the same. We all sail in the same boat of life. Catastrophe strikes and people are thrown out of their comfort zone, without choice and into deep pits. I believe as a fellow human being it’s every person’s responsibility to help each other in need. If you are brave enough, jump onto the mission and take a leap challenging yourself to give your best. If you are unsure, throw a life boat which could be a small donation, insignificant for you but massive significance for those in need.

The decision is yours today. It could be the greatest feeling this Christmas that you have helped brighten someone’s Christmas this year. One coffee, $4 is all it takes. Little drops make a mighty ocean. Never underestimate what our little drop of $4 could do to impact a persons life in a positive way.

Thanks for joining me on this journey ! If you haven’t and you are reading this, welcome aboard ! Click on the link below

When Perception Overrides Perspective

Let your perspective of things not affect the way you perceive things in the present

Let your perspective of things not affect the way you perceive things in the present. Let your perspective be based on what you perceive in the present world. When reality hits hard, one needs to let go of their perspective of things and embrace perceiving things just the way they are to find a way out.

Perspective according to the dictionary can be defined as ‘ a particular attitude towards or a way of regarding something. A point of view 

Perceive could be defined as the ability to recognize, discern or understand. 

Say for example, each of us view life from our own perspective, contributing factors could be our age, culture, family, life circumstances and possibly a lot more. For example from a new mom’s perspective life could be both exciting and exhausting at the same time, a students perspective on life could be both adventurous and sometimes boring, a working mom’s perspective on life could be both rewarding and sacrificial.. the list goes on.. The point here is if you need to understand a new mom’s perspective on life, you need to perceive life through the eyes of a new mom to really understand their view point on why they feel and act a certain way

Looking at things from a new perspective can change your perception of things. And when we do that, we learn to appreciate each other’s differences in the most gracious way.
