Life Full of Holidays

Life full of holidays? Being at rest and restored is a choice. Would you be willing to choose to rest? Would you be willing to know no worries of the world, to be deeply satisfied, to truly appreciate? To take the gifts and lessons left behind from past seasons of our lives and carry it forward with you?

The closeness of my closest friend changed the trajectory of my life and family. The vast, uphill journey of pleasantness, serenity, quietness and comfort speak louder every day as I recite my verse into this blog space.

I hadn’t even opened my mouth to utter it. But, God-in-me knew my musings and my very nature of ups and downs and thoughts of needs. He has always been the first one to understand me and my thoughts. He has always been the first one who comes to my aid, he is the first one to empathize with my weakness.

I did not even know what was best for me and I did not know where to search for it. God directed my steps. God provided for me at the right season of my life. I’m grateful for his unfailing love and his faithfulness of his word.

At 21, I was married even before I longed for it.

In my 20s, I bore children without waiting for it.

He has made everything beautiful in its time. Ecclesiastes 3:11

All these years, I was fed and nurtured wonderfully, not by the work of my hands.

 I have not labored yet to prepare my food. I was fed without the worries of the world like the birds of the air. They neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet my heavenly Father feeds them. I’m truly grateful for my Father’s love upon our family for his rich provision.

Every good gift, be it clothing or spiritual discernment come from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth. God foreknew my life, met my needs, my deepest desires and longings.

“Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows,” James 1: 17

All praise to my King Jesus Christ!

You Can Live on Grace

To all my friends who dearly loved me and asked me how I’ve been in Sydney!

Over the past 9 years of my life, I enjoyed volunteering at various places in Sydney for Administration, Human Resources and Media Marketing. Earning a handful was a long time coming. Before I could even earn a decent income, my Lord provided for all my needs, my food, shelter, my clothing.

When critics were judgmental and passed comments about me, their jealousy did not ruin my life. In the long run, their words proved them wrong. Their plans did not prosper. Their words did not become my destiny. God’s goodness and mercies followed me every day. The Lord have always been my refuge and his grace is always sufficient for me.

I did not strive to put food on my plate or feed my family. I have not labored to even prepare our meals every day. By His goodness of His grace, the Lord satisfied all my needs. His grace satisfied my spirit, soul and body. I did not lack food, clothing and shelter.  The Lord have always been generous and kind to me. I am loved, blessed, healed and restored by the Most High God Almighty. I can see lots of love, life and peace coming my way.

Today I’m blessed. It is God and not my intellect that brought in favour upon my life. Through faith in the name of Jesus Christ, I’m tasting every grace he has bestowed on me.

10 The young lions lack and suffer hunger;
But those who seek the Lord shall not lack any good thing. Psalm 34: 10

1The Lord is my shepherd;
I shall not want.
He makes me to lie down in green pastures;
He leads me beside the still waters.  Psalm 23: 1, 2

I praise the name of Jesus Christ, the name above all names.

In Him, you have victory.

Auto-immune condition gone automatically after..

Smile is a sign of joy and gladness. Life seemed wonderful with smile on my face until a year ago when I was diagnosed with periodontal disease, an auto-immune condition that affected my gums. It slowly developed with inflammation, bleeding and pain in the gums. It made me difficult to eat hot and cold food. I love spicy food but couldn’t enjoy it anymore. Dentist said it would only get worse and give way to more health risks. So gave me a plan to treat the condition. I asked the dentist if his patients were completely cured according to his treatment plans. He said it had happened sometimes for some people. But cannot guarantee for me. He was saying this to take care of my gums to his best knowledge as soon as possible. I was completely discouraged and helpless. I found no hope in any dentist after he said that. I was only 31 but according to his knowledge and observation, I was aging too soon.

On my way back home, his comments and treatment plans were buzzing on my head. Where am I heading? How is my health going to progress? How can I not be serious about this? How can I ignore this? Who can give me the hope of saving my health? My heart was longing for elixir of life. I am a foodie. I love to taste variety of cuisine. And now I’m feeling unease and discomfort in my mouth. After some months, I came to know about the awesome power in the name of Lord Jesus Christ. He defeated death. He won over death. God raised him from the dead. His grave is opened and still remains till this day.

So before I brushed my teeth, I said this….” In the name of Jesus Christ who raised from the death, in the name of Jesus Christ who won over death, I now brush my teeth” and I brushed my teeth morning and night. I didn’t realize when exactly it happened but I saw suddenly that the inflammation was gone. I felt no tenderness in my gums. Bleeding stopped. My mouth felt so clean, no bad odor , all happened after I believed and confessed the name of Lord Jesus Christ. I realized once again that Salvation is found in no one else. I found no dentist who can save me. Lord Almighty is awesome. His works are perfect. I can now smile like never before. Thank you Lord!
