Live Your Life: Do It Afraid

It’s like playing twister every week.

Taking one day at a time – study, do business, run errands, prep work, chores. Completing my assessment tasks had been a huge challenge. Oh boy, what have I gotten into. Originality, hard work, research, attention to word count, push my limits – read more, study more, work more, drink more water..

I wonder how could a whiny person be useful. My prayer, the tool of faith helped me receive strength and wisdom of God. My mountain of doubt shook at His presence. Yes, once again.. The Lord did awesome things for which I did not look. I can’t believe my eyes. I passed my assessment. Seriously, I thought I might have to take 2nd attempt to get through. English, being my second language, Diploma in Screen and Media keeps me busy and takes me places.  

I realised power, love, and a sound mind makes me who I am meant to be. That makes me a loving wife, joyful mother, doting daughter-in-law, caring daughter, a friend who will hide and seek ha ha… God is my source of power, love and soundness of mental health. Through Lord Jesus Christ alone, I can do well.

When You did awesome things for which we did not look,
You came down,
The mountains shook at Your presence. Isaiah 64:3

For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. 2 Timothy 1:7

Thank you Lord for your amazing grace!

A Day in My Life

A day in my life

I spread out my wings

I flew, I darted, I stalled

I fled and rested

I counted them all in my little nest

Shares of distress and joy

Looking up to the mountains

A soft whisper, a cry for mercy

Longing for His warm embrace

Yearning for His sweet fellowship

With enough God’s consolation

His gentle words stir my heart

As scent of water to a dry tree

So, the scent of His power over my life

That’s the wonder of His unfailing love

You answer us with awesome and righteous deeds, God our Savior, the hope of all the ends of the earth and of the farthest seas, Psalm 65:5

Praise be to God, who has not rejected my prayer or withheld his love from me! Psalm 66:20

God loves you, my friend! Lord Jesus is alive!

Greatest quality of a business man

I heard from a wonderful gentleman named Freddy now in his 60s. In his young age, he owned a car mechanic shop in India. All went well, peaceful, prosperous and self-sufficient. Comparing to his past, his present state proved to be a huge success.  So, I listened further to what he had been through.

He had the calling to move to a new career path. This shift brought him to a new season of change… A change in perspective, change in realities, facing new fears and growing from strength to strength. He left his mechanic shop and everything he owned. He moved to this new work. Being the breadwinner of the family, all expenses should be met by him. Later, his financial resources dropped low and fear overtook him. Fear of being incapable to feed the family, fear of being incapable to meet their family’s needs, fear of being incapable to pay bills on time, fear of ridicule and so on. When everyone around him wanted to know what was happening, he was also fearing shame.

There seemed no solution except to trust in God and receive his favor. Fear constantly gripped him. Then he remembered this

For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. 2 Timothy 1:7

He kept repeating these words of God and thinking to himself… This same God is my God.  God has not given me a spirit of fear but of power, of love and of a sound mind. He started to doubt his fear. He believed he had in himself such great power, love and sound mind and thought to himself that he didn’t have to fear. These words gave him hope and confidence. Many years ago, one day they had nothing to provide for the family, suddenly a crow dropped 100 rupees at their window. They thanked God for his kindness and favor. Usually, crow steal and take away food through the window but this time it dropped some money. God opened doors to blessing. God blessed him abundantly. He now shares his joy and passion for God wherever help is needed. You too can trust God.
