I lost my grandmother Mrs Annathai on November 12,2020. Her absence made me realize that she is the one who always wish to be near me. The whole house have her presence because she is so much aware about the nook and corner of the house and have left lots of memories about each thing present here. Each thing reminds me of her. I am happy that I was with her in the last hour of her life and she went to be with the Lord peacefully. Her life has taught me great lessons.
I haven’t closed the doors of my house and gone somewhere because paati(grandmom) will always be there. But now, the doors are closed and the room is empty.
This reminded me the doors of heaven. Its not closed as of now, but a day will come when God seperates people based on their deeds. People who believed Jesus Christ and lived according to his will have the doors of heaven opened for them and for the remaining people, the doors of heaven will be closed.
Let us get ready for the coming of Christ and let the doors of heaven be opened for us.
There are no substitutes for certain people in our lives. Mother’s love, father’s counsel, sister’s scoldings,Husband’s care and questioning grandparents.
I also found that there is no substitute to the one who provides me strength, who make a perfect way before me and help me run steadily in all the ups and downs in my life. It is my Almighty God Jesus Christ who can be with me all the time.
Yes, none in this world can strengthen us in our tough times. Let Jesus Christ be our strength and love at all stages of our life.
But to be honest, many of our loved ones would have left this world and we would be expecting that love and care from others. Perfect and true love can only be from our Almighty God. Believe and love Him, He is The best Lover ever.
We all need a place to stay. People love to be at their own home which is their most comfortable place. Some will not be able to adjust in others home. But I had a schooltime friend named Bhanupriya who gets adjusted in anyplace she goes. Seeing her I felt I should also be an adjusting type and be happy wherever I am.
Few days before, our airconditioner and washing machine got repaired. To our surprise, we found that the machine got repaired because of the squirrels which has built its home inside it.
Yeah, all of us will somehow find a place to live. Luke 9:57 says, Jesus replied, “Foxes have dens to live in, and birds have nests, but the Son of Man has no place even to lay his head.”
The Awesome God who loves to live within us never forces anyone to give a place in their heart . But He is eager to be within us. Revelation 3:20 in bible says “Look! I stand at the door and knock. If you hear my voice and open the door, I will come in, and we will share a meal together as friends.”
Having a mighty Creator within us is the best strength anyone can have, then why should we have a second thought to let the mighty God inside us. Its a human nature to make the place clean for the people invited to stay. Let us clean our hearts and let The Holy God inside our hearts.
Hi readers, fear is cultivated in the hearts of the children by the parents for to make the child eat,sleep,obey, to do homework etc. This fear makes them a poor decision maker,a bad developer,ignorant about their bests and suppresses their growth.
In my life, I was eager to join in sports and all extracurricular activities but I was not supported or encouraged by my parents as well as my friends. This gave me a fear to try something new and the most bad thing is I started misspending my time.
A simple example is even to make a special dish, I was in fear whether I could make it or not. Discouragements lead to fear and stops our growth. Bible says “Do not be afraid or discouraged, for the Lord will personally go ahead of you. He will be with you; He will neither fail you nor abandon you.” If you are in fear of something, Take courage, God is with you.
This made me not to cultivate wrong fears within my precious God given baby “preyerna “. Instead to cultivate within her the fear of Almighty God Jesus Christ from her childhood which will make her to face this life full of challenges boldly and become the best role model to many.
Fear of the Lord is the foundation of true knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and discipline. Proverbs 1:7
