Few Are Chosen

How lovely to know , you speak to my heart

As I seek you, it’s a wonderful start.

Knowing you better, drawing close

you are the sweet smell of a rose.

You lavish your love day & night

walking like a lover in your light.

Preparing now your bride to be

Dressed in purity for the world to see.

The journey now has begun with you

A companion I found faithful & true.

God’s Faithfulness

We all have our days where we feel we can’t survive. Sometimes dreams are shattered, friendship’s may fall apart. Loved one’s may hurt us. Finances may worry us. Sickness may overtake us. We may even lose people we love. But God is faithful, he never departs. He is there through it all to guide us, love and protect us.

Nothing can happen without God’s permission and any difficulty in our lives is not a surprise to God. He knows it all. God will not allow a catastrophe unless he has a divine purpose for it. If you keep your peace, you’ll pass the test and God will bring you out better than before.

All of your days have been written in God’s book. Psalm 56:8 reads (when David was going through a difficult time)

   You keep track of all my sorrows.

    You have collected all my tears in your bottle.

    You have recorded each one in your book.

When you go through mortification, don’t stop on that page Stay the course , Keep believing. You may be tired, discouraged and agitated, but don’t give up on your future. If God has brought you this far; He is not going to abandon you. God is faithful. The word of God encourages us in Deuteronomy 31:6– Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.”

Forever More…

My heart is compelled to love you more

Deeper and deeper off the shore

How do we define a feeling so pure

Only in your presence one is sure.

Floating in the spirit 

wanting you more

Rising in love ready to soar

This love I found, satisfies my soul

The more I seek the better I grow.

Lets walk in this love 

that is endless and true,

I will live in the house of the Lord

Forever more!

The Man Of God

Born by faith and beauty on his face

He was called to run God’s race

The Israelite’s were told about the promised land

Moses would rescue them from Pharaoh’s hand

He rescued the people from slavery and disgrace

The only prophet, God spoke face to face

Mighty miracles were done in his time

He was covered with God’s gracious hand

Moses was obedient to every word

He told the people what he heard.

The powerful right hand of God delivers them all

All he wants is their faithfulness when he calls

For he is majestic in holiness and awesome in glory

A mighty God of all ages who writes our story. 

In Search Of You

I came to you broken and a hopeless me

I did not understand what could I be

In all the misery and the bitterness I knew

There was deep sorrow in my soul

I heard there is hope for the hopeless

Rest for the restless 

And forgiveness for the sinner.

So where do I find a place like this?

Here on earth or in heaven.

Do I go on? Or do I end?

I am confused how do I comprehend 

Then I heard there is “Good News” for you

The word of God is faithful and true.

I wonder what that really meant?

How can a word mend a dent?

In all these years shed my tears

And everyday stifled with various fears

If you say his word heals

I want to know what that feels

I long now for his gentle touch

Speak Lord, I need you so much.

And when you come I will know

For my soul, will be restored.

The Seasons Of My Life!

If words could express the feelings of our hearts, then so many of us would live a better life. If money was not a constraint, then people would live carefree. Why is life so complicated? Is it because of our choices. Or should I say at times we are left with no CHOICE.

How does one live in a world that only cares for success and so much greed. Why living a simple life is considered alien? Has technology become so vivid that it makes the human existence bleak? If one doesn’t have the latest update or gadget that person is considered to be living in a cave. We judge people with their assets. My question here is – Do we have to always move with the crowd? Why did the bird Seagull decide to move away from the flock? It was because it didn’t find its purpose with them. The bird knew there was a better calling to the sky he is soaring in. This is a story of Jonathan Livingston Seagull,seagull who is bored with daily squabbles over food. … There he meets another seagull who loves to fly. He discovers that his sheer tenacity and desire to learn make him “pretty well a one-in-a-million bird.”

I heard this story when I was in college. Our principal announced that an outstanding student would be awarded this. And guess what? I received the award for being an all rounder . It was not easy being different from the crowd. But when you decide to be outstanding then the rewards are great or sometimes not so great, but its worth it.

Mostly, life has surprised me with more challenges than opportunities. Known for God given talents, but not used to the best of my ability except for the “radio” that I am part of. I am grateful to the almighty for this area of my life.

But what happens to the rest of the God given talents? Is it suppressed and under valued and you work in a place that just makes you feel worthless and awful? We just keep compromising all our lives to make ends meet?

What will happen if you and I decide to take that leap of faith and do what our heart really desires? Is it possible to walk by faith and not by sight ( 2 Corinthians 5:7  ) Is it practical to leave an unknown future to a known God? How do you tell a person to take the leap of faith who has bills to pay every month and ration to take care of?

All these questions that I had lead me to a place that had all the answers- THE BIBLE. The word of God is active and alive when you read it. He provided me with insights for all my doubts. Sometimes you will have answers to your questions and sometimes not because God knows exactly what we need to know. His word says in (2 Corinthians 12:9 ) “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.

So with God’s word I know MIRACLES happen because this life that I am living itself is a MIRACLE. So here I am walking in his will for I know the storms that I face will make me stronger and more resilient. I will keep praising him in the storm, for he is the God who calms the storm.

This Is How I Fight My Battles…

Today Lord, has been another tough morning

The battle gets stronger and stronger

I see the attack is so real

that giving up seems like a runway

I don’t want to lose

It’s your strength that I choose

Tears is all I have nothing else to offer

My mind is restless there is no peace

But when I focus on you 

I know this too shall pass

Climbing this hurdle is weighing me down

and tearing me apart

I feel the pressure pressing me down

But there is a fight I have put up

Not to believe in the lies the situation holds

For I know to whom I belong

the maker of my soul

Come Lord rescue me from this mess

I have no home or place to go

But till I reach the place called home

Lord ,you be my HOPE.
