Resistance spoils the relationship
Deepa N
published . 2 min read
When someone shouts or screams at us, the natural reflex in our heart is to build a resistance to stop our mind from being affected by it. But making that resistance our default behaviour everytime we meet that person is harmful to the relationship. Sometimes that resistance we build is restricted and it affects the specific individual or it impacts the specific group of individuals belonging to a specific community or to the whole human society. Sometimes the resistance we build in during our young growing up age, tend to really affect us and define our attitude towards other people. The fear and the insecurities which we have in the society and our needs to protect and defend ourselves makes us more resistant and hard hearted as we face more and more struggles in our lives. When someone......
God fights for our dignity

Dignity is something that can be expressed and felt deep inside the heart. As human beings everyone deserve to be treated with diginity, because we are created in the image of God. There is no excuse to not treat someone with dignity because of their education, or their occupation or their orign or their disability. The dignity comes with the respect for the life that God has given for us. Three different people insisted the same word "Dignity" this week. My manager insisted on how important it is for people to treat me with dignity. My friend as well told me that it is so important that we be treated with dignity. My priest in the sermon today as well mentioned about dignity and the importance of it in our lives. God really wants me to take this more seriously. God brings in......
My life is a story by god.

Sometimes when everything happening around goes uncontrolled, it is hard to really understand and appreciate what is going on. Last year around the sametime I had my broken foot, healing. This year I dont even have any traces of the hardships I went through last year. God is wonderful. Again this year I am going through lots troubles at work and in my personal life. But I know, next year this time, I will be surrounded by a totally different kind of problems and I might not even remember what I am going through. Life is all about learning to hold the hands of God. Trying to find meaning in the situations is meaningless. Trying to hold on to God and see Him in all situations and Glorifying Him for how strong He has made me as compared to who I was yesterday. Crossing the river is hard, but......
Father and son
Deepa N
published . 2 min read
Today in the church, in the pew in front of me were seated a father and his son, who was around twelve years old. I really enjoied watching them together, they were very friendly, understanding, caring of each other. But at the same time when the boy sat down in the middle of the Gospel reading the dad asked him to standup. And later I saw the son passionatly wipe the reading glasses for his dad. Looking that them I could feel that they really enjoied each other's company. Father and Son relationship God has called us to be in is not something where the Father is finding fault with the son, and the son finding fault with the Father. We dont have anything that is perfect in this world. There is no perfect father, no perfect mother, no perfect son, no perfect daugther, no perfect......
God has given us the choice, let us chose to be the best
Deepa N

We human beings man and woman are blessed with the wisdom to understand, and the ability to choose. God knows the choices that are in front of us and the one that we will choose. Like how he knew what Cain and Abel will choose to bring to him. Some may lesser options to choose from, and some might have more options to choose from. But in either case, always choose the best, the one which aligns us to the will of God. Choosing the right things comes with having the right spirit. When we don't have the spiritual maturity or the right spirit to take the right decision or choose the right friends or choose the right people or choose the right things, then life becomes messy. Every situation in our life gives us the opportunity to grow more spiritually, by being the best of whatever of the......
Being in serious relationship with god and his people
Deepa N
published . 2 min read
God is not an illusion or a dream or mythological hero or a substance like air or wind or water. He is real and He looks to have serious relationship with us. He is real, as real as my parents or my sibling or any one around me. He lives, He talks to me, He cares for me, He guides me. He wants me and you to take the relationship with Him more seriously. Every commitment we have, every promise He has for us, every word He has spoken to us, is all to be taken seriously. God's plan for me is not just limited to me. When He plans for me He is also working in the lives of the people around me, He is working on every person who knows me, people at my work, people in my family, people in my community, people in my friends circle. Though the promise He has for me He is planning to touch many......
Are we fighting for it or against it
Deepa N

Our love makes us fight for something, while our insecurities makes us fight against it. We have to be careful and watchful to see if we are fighting for what love and whom we love and holding on to it. But when satan brings in the insecuties inside our mind, we start defending ourselves and start to fight against what we really love. It is a calling for me, to step out of my insecurities and to hold on to love of God. This life in face Philosophically is so full of insecurities, things are changing, life is not stable, people are mean, we live among mortal people, relationships break. All these which happen around us, lead us into insecurities and pushes our soul into the dark pit. It really makes us feel our life is not worth living. It makes us turn our faces from the love of God. It......
In the shadow of his wings

Being a Refuge in the shadow of His wings is such a blessing. In the Gospel of John, the raising of Lazarus (John 11:1–44), the author, reiterates the love which Lord Jesus has for the family of Lazarus, Martha and Mary, so many times in so many ways. The chapter starts with the note sent by Lazarus's sisters "Master the one whom you love is ill." And it again endorses the love saying "Now Jesus loved Martha, Mary and Lazarus." When I read it gives me the hope that Jesus is going to save the one whom He loves. If these words confirming Jesus's love were missing, I would have had the doubt if Jesus will save Him or not. But these words that assures Jesus loves gives us the hope Jesus will save him. He will not leave them as orphans and will come to them.......
A letter to god

Sometimes I feel like a kid and want to write a letter to God, asking the questions whatever I dont understand and telling Him how it feels deep in the heart. God.. there are many things on this earth I know I dont want to carry to my Grave. When I look at the end of the earthly journey, which is the grave and I think how do I want me to be in the grave. I am sure I dont want to carry my hatred, grievances or my failures to the grave. I want to carry love, joy, peace and victory to my grave. God.. when I close my heart and look deep inside me I know the hatred, grievance and the failures that I hold in my memories. They are painful, I really try hard to get away from them. God.. please help me with creating good memories. God.. you make me wonder how complex and difficult our realtionship......
He who gave the vision is also the way

Our relationship with hope, stays as long as we breathe. Hope came into our being when God breathed into our nostrils and we becase alive, and till the point we give up breathing, we hold on to Hope. This hope relates us to God and shows us the meaning of our existance. Sometimes hopelessness comes into our life like the dark cloud, but miraculously, there is this voice of hope which comes in, and restores us back into the path. Coming back to the right path, we turn to God and we ask for the way to walk. Like how the disciples asked Jesus, show us the way to Heaven. We also ask to God for the way to walk. The reply from Jesus is the same to all of us, and it is He is the way. It is hard and difficult to understand what He meant by "I am the Way." My first reaction to that was......
