Letting go

Independence – The very word by itself has a significant meaning which gives us a joyous feeling. The United States of America celebrates yet another independence day with all the wonderful fireworks in the sky, for those of us who work its a day off and its also a time of family reunion for everyone. This is just great time for all of us in this country, but as Christians, Continue Reading »

Empty Glass

Can I be real with you?

You sit there,
Now, your hands wrapped around that glass;
Now, tapping on the table and echoing the seconds as they tick by.
The rain outside delays your retreat,
Somehow, I know you’ll stick around and listen.

Can I be real?

Yesterday, the pile that’s been growing
Up up up
For so many years began to wobble again.
I knew that if I even breathed funny,
If I stopped running, or jerked in a certain way,
The whole porcelain castle would implode.

Are you still listening?

It’s with joy and thanksgiving that I write this post on Father’s Day. It was my Dad (step-Dad to be technical, but Abba in every sense of the word) who first led me to Christ, and it was my Dad who, around this time last year, shepherded me through probably the hardest time of my life so far. And it’s through my Dad that I begin to see a glimpse of how our Heavenly Father cares for us so tenderly.

Proverbs 1:8-9 says “your father’s instruction…[is] a graceful wreath to your head,” and this statement rings true, especially for me today. Most of us tend to view our fathers as only demanding obedience and often unreasonable as we’re growing up. For me, it turns out, I was wrong. During the aforementioned difficult time in my life, I had often sought the counsel of friends. Though they were kind hearted and of strong character, it was not until I talked to my brother who sternly exhorted me to go to my Dad with the issue, that I realized that friends and their advice can only go so far: the wisdom and authority of my Dad had no match. And sure be it, it was not until I sought the counsel of my earthly father, which was loving, wise, and understanding, that I was really able to connect and reconcile with my Heavenly Father.

So today, on behalf of all of us here on the blog, I want to thank all our Dad’s, for their love, instruction, and care, and for showing us the nature of our Heavenly Father, to whom there is no compare.

A mask is defined as “a covering for all or part of the face, worn to conceal one’s identity” (Source – All Time famous Dictionary.com). We all love our faces or to make it more specific and relative to this blog, I would say we love our identity and it’s reflection in the society we live in. From the time we realize and know what is going on around us, right from our childhood days, we all in some way have shaped our identity in some form or the other. Then as days and years have rolled by, we have been adapting or trying to adapt ourselves to the different changes that have influenced a makeover to our identity, all because of the situations and environment we put ourselves in.

Then one day all of a sudden, we meet our wonderful Lord and Savior Jesus Christ which is all good, but then it hits us. It is time to have a complete new make over, a change that we never anticipated, a new feel that we never felt, an interesting face off process which we would have never imagined, a new identity which for sure we know is going to be a difficult one to get used to, all these things to go through because of that one person whom we fell in love with. Now that sounds challenging. Continue Reading »
