My, How time flies..A new year..Happy New Year to all of you. I know its so late to wish for New Years. But have’nt you heard Better Late than never. Can I confess something !!! Its been two yrs I blogged. Whatever……lazy, not interested, time management problems but I will say my interest changed to topical blogging. I selected topics for blogging where I always was interested to write like Power of Prayer ( Blog where I talk about leading a successful spiritual life)- http://lifethrujc.blogspot.com.I have not taken resolutions this year. I ve been trying hard from a pretty long time to fulfill one but I think I will need these many years to fulfill one. But I must say 2008 was a year of blessings for me. Praise God for that. I was single when I started 2008 but God blessed me with a family. Looking back to the past year I have many confessions and many blessings to thank for. First half of last yr was time I just don’t wanna think of ( I wish I get amnesia when I think of that) .a hell lot of mess, busy work schedule, pressure at work..i hate it..phhhhhhhh. But this made me to come more closer to god. 2008 was a year of testimony of Gods Goodness in my life. One of the reasons I am back blogging is that I should testify about the gods mercy in my life but this is the fact of life., a year like never before. As the Bible says “ I will lift up my eyes unto the hills from whence cometh my help. My help comes from the Lord who made heaven and Earth.” I have been brought up in a Christian Life. My parents made sure that in every aspect of my life, I had an essence of godliness to it. And I must say I did keep up to my parents expectations and as a normal Christian accepted Christ as my Lord and Saviour and took Water baptism. This is long time back in 1998. But I think I have changed. The zeal for the Lord was like waves in the sea, sometimes it tossed so high to reach the sky and sometimes it was like a dead sea. But God was slowly working in my life. God made me closer to him.
Last yr my parents started pressurizing me for marriage and I was not at all ready for it. I saw couple of men which I felt were all duds. Oh I had a baaad experience which I will tel u in my next blog. Then finally the last one came and things moved forward and in 2 months I was married. The whole thing was so fast as you say “chatt mangni patt shadi.” In my mind I was like why am I doing this. I felt as if some supernatural power is telling me this is the one for you. DISCLAIMER: DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME. Please do not thing that this will happen to all of you. I believe God has his own way of dealing with people. And in my mind I knew things will be different like for every girl and on top of that i knew that out of every place in this world I had to be in Vijayawada. Am sure half of you would not know where this place is and imagine I had no idea how I will survive there with some strange telegu speaking people. Yes it’s a small town in Andhra Pradesh. That was like a huge transition. But what made to move on was my immense trust in my Lord. My Lord has perfect plans in my life. During that period, my husband was enjoying a treat from God. He was been promoted few months before marriage, followed by salary hike, other perks. This was period when we all heard about the recession but He was basking away in Gods Glory. Soon in a month of our marriage, we heard a rumor that there will be transfers and job cuts which made us skeptical about what will happen. But then we kept the request in prayer and left it as a rumor which later came to be true that He has a transfer ( many things happened in between) to Mumbai. I was in high spirits though. I just couldn’t control my happiness that I was finally out of that place. Both of us never thought in our wildest dreams that we could ever leave that place so soon. What i believe is God knew that it would be difficult for me to live there and moreover there was very less job prospects. I am into online market and I knew that i would surely will not be able to continue in my field which was very disheartening We were not sure whether recession will hit his job but later when everything was finalized. We came to know My Husband was again transferred with a promotion. In 6 months 2 promotions and 2 salary hikes. What more can u wish for?? Isn’t God so Great ?? But now when i think i know i believed and trusted completely in Gods Purpose in my Life and God honored my desires.It is difficult to explain in words. That’s the experience I must say. This is what bible says God is Good to those who trust in Him and I experienced it. God knows our hearts and will surely answer all our needs. Then we got all busy with the packing. I must confess, in 5 months I packed my stuff 5 times. I was in 5 different places…Delhi, Kerala, Vijayawada, Vishakapatnam, Mumbai…Alas!! I then waited for another 20 days for my husband to go and get house and other formalities done for us to stay in mumbai.
Another big constraint was House in Mumbai. Nothing is as challenging as finding a decent house in Mumbai. After coming here I was just noticing the place and the houses. Looks as if people are stuffed into small boxes. The houses are so dingy. Again we prayed for it and Praise God, what a wonderful house. More beautiful than we could think of with every facility and provision for our living. What I learnt is God is faithful, merciful and Just to those who Love and Trust in HIM. And I daily have started to experience him so closely. I could feel his Holy Spirit so strong in me. Every day the way I live is a miracle. Whatever we pray for, we are seeing our prayers been answered. Through this blog I would request you to pray always, pray without ceasing, do good to others, help and serve others and God. Be faithful with your money. God will surely answer your request but the underline communication is FAITH. You must have Faith as small as the mustard seed. Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him and he will direct your paths ( Proverbs 3:5-6-Bible).
