Give thanks


I have noticed that, I pray and ask some things to God and after some days I forget what I asked for. I forget it because it maybe a small thing, or it is taking time to be real. But later, when I think about those needs , I see that God has already given me what I asked for when I even did not realise. God remembers our needs even when we don’t remember.
It does not occur always. Sometimes I get the answer for my prayers very soon. I am experiencing the presence of God with me always. I can feel that love from Him. I feel assured that He is with me and will be forever. I have gone through many painful experiences, but I could feel the helping hands of my Father with me. His love is true love.
I thank Him for the blessings and the life He gave me. Give thanks to Him for the blessings He gave in your life.

Happy new year


Happy new year 2015 everyone.
Last year was an eventful year for me. When I calculate, happiness was more than sadness. God gave one more opportunity to praise Him. In fact, after our marriage, I enjoyed last year very much. God fulfilled my heart’s desires. He assures me of His presence in my life everyday.  Those who experience this feeling will surely agree with me. Relationships got more stronger and learned some more about life even though failed many times in the process of learning life.
I hope 2015 will be a much more good year for everyone.

How to Be a Confident Mom


This post is not written by me , this is from  Joyce Meyer. I want every mothers to read this.

Bringing Up Your Children with Peace, Patience and Confidence

At one time or another, every mom has felt lacking in her ability as a parent. It begins with caring for your newborn. Am I doing this right? And then continues with toddler tantrums all the way through the teenage years. Am I making the right decisions? Are my kids going to turn out all right? When they make mistakes, will they know that God is on their side? Even when our children are grown-ups, they’ll forever be our children.

There are awesome responsibilities that come with being a parent, and while many men are committed to their families and deeply involved in their children’s lives, mothers tend to be the primary nurturers.

I have met young moms who feel they are not what they should be unless they can juggle marriage, parenting, home­making, and a career all at the same time.

Sometimes messy and difficult family situations like divorce, alcoholism, abuse, or other problems make it even harder to persevere with a positive, peaceful attitude.

Then there’s the worry that your children may not choose to pursue a personal relationship with God or walk through life with Him.

If you feel like your joy in motherhood is being overshadowed by family challenges or a swirling sense of self-doubt, I want to help you claim the confidence you need to enjoy the journey of motherhood.

I’m not talking about confidence in your own abilities; I am talking about having confidence in God’s ability to help you and guide you each step of the way. He intends for motherhood to be a joyful experience, and I want to help you learn how to lean confidently on Him.

One thing God doesn’t want you to do is worry. Some people think if they aren’t worrying about their children, they’re not good parents. However, the Bible warns us not to worry because it does us no good.

Matthew 6:27 says, “And who of you by worrying and being anxious can add one unit of measure (cubit) to his stature or to the span of his life?”

Like most parents, Dave and I had some kind of issue with each of our children. And I wasted a lot of time worrying while they were growing up.

Two of our children struggled getting through school, one was very messy, and another was an extreme perfectionist and put tremendous pressure on herself. The good news is they all made it and are doing fine.

Some of them took a little detour and made some bad choices, but they learned from them and came full circle back to what they were taught.

God’s Word states that if we train our children in the way they should go, when they are old they will not depart from it (see Proverbs 22:6). If you are concerned about your children, just cling to that promise. Pray for their needs, and then cast your care on God.

Instead of feeling the pressure of worldly expectations, do the best job you can to raise your children according to godly principles and leave the rest up to God.

Nobody’s Perfect

Sometimes moms miss out on what could be joy-filled moments because they are concerned they aren’t measuring up to other moms. But God’s Word says it’s unwise to make comparisons (see 2 Corinthians 10:12).

He doesn’t want you to be like other moms. He wants you to celebrate the fact that you are unique!

Every person has special gifts and talents. And at the same time, we are all surrounded by people who have different gifts and abilities that we don’t have.

Insecurity and a lack of confidence will not only steal your ability to enjoy other people’s gifts—it will cause you to feel inadequate and may even keep you from pursuing the wonderful life that God has planned for you.

God made you one-of-a-kind and wonderful in your own way. So cultivate your strengths, gifts, and personalities, and pass that confidence on to your children by appreciating and encouraging their uniqueness.

You don’t have to be perfect. Just do the best that you can and remember that God will do what you can’t as you trust in Him.

It’s easy to get stuck thinking what could’ve, would’ve, or should’ve been, or spend time wishing things were different than they are. But like worrying, wishing is a waste of time.

Life is always more enjoyable and fulfilling when we choose to cultivate an attitude of gratitude and contentment.

I am not encouraging you to settle for situations that need to be improved, but I am urging you to accept the way God made you and the life He has given you.

The truth is, nobody has the perfect life.

Decide today to take the first step toward learning to enjoy your life by making the most of what you have. It also helps to embrace the ordinary—to delight in little things, to appreciate small blessings other people might overlook.

Whatever situation you find yourself in—and no matter what is happening with your children, you always have access to the unlimited, unconditional love of God.

Love is the greatest gift a mom can give. Yet all too often, moms are running on empty, trying to give their children what they haven’t received for themselves.

Throughout the years, God has encouraged me to get filled up spiritually in a variety of ways.

I started by studying what the Word says about His love, and made a point to declare out loud several times a day “God loves me.” It felt uncomfortable at first, but doing this helped me embrace the truth of God’s love. I encourage you to do this too.

Say to yourself “God loves me,” and let it sink in. Repeat it often: when you awake in the morning, when you go to bed at night, and throughout the entire day. Look at yourself in the mirror, point to yourself, call yourself by name, and say, “God loves me.”

You can also keep a book of remembrance filled with special things God does for you. Include the little things as well as major things. And read over your list at least once a week to keep yourself encouraged.

Read some good books about God’s love. After God gave me a personal revelation about His love for me, one of the first messages I ever taught was about the love of God. Through that experience I wrote a book called, Tell Them I Love Them.

Pray for the Holy Spirit, Who is our Helper and Teacher, to give you a personal revelation of God’s love.

Always remember, you’re not alone. God is always with you. Lean on Him for the grace and wisdom to follow His lead. He’s the best teacher, comforter, confidant and encourager there is, and He can give you all the peace, patience and confidence you need to succeed.

When your confidence is in Him, you can truly enjoy every minute of your journey.

Reader Story: She Looked at Him


Very well written.

The Fickle Heartbeat

she looked at him

Shared by inilluzion.

She looked at the man sleeping beside her. 7 years yet he sometimes felt like a stranger. Sometimes she felt she failed to understand the father of her child.

She looked at him and wandered if she actually loved her. She can not feel him him anymore. Their daughter was the only the thing they both cared about and thought about in the long run. When she wanted to talk, there was always some more priority topic taking over, her in-laws, his work, her work and their daughter. When he showed some interest in her, she was too tired of wanting to be wanted.

They had a few troubles which were not solved, but they just skipped them. Not long enough did they realize that it did not work. She looked at this man and shed a few tears. She looked at her daughter and…

Live in the present


Do not worry or be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will have worries and anxieties of its own. Sufficient for each day is its own trouble.
—Matthew 6:34

One of the things we need to understand is that God wants us to learn to be “now people.” Too often we spend our time in the past or the future. We need to learn to live now—mentally as well as physically and spiritually. There is an anointing on today.

In John 8:58, Jesus referred to Himself as I AM. If you and I, as His disciples, try to live in the past or the future, we are going to find life hard for us because Jesus is always in the present. That’s what He meant when He told us in Matthew 6:34, Do not worry or be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will have worries and anxieties of its own. Sufficient for each day is its own trouble.

Jesus has plainly told us we don’t need to worry about anything. All we need to do is seek the kingdom of God, and He will add to us whatever we need, whether it is food or clothing or shelter or spiritual growth (See Matthew 6:25-33). We don’t need to be concerned about tomorrow, because tomorrow will have problems of its own. We need to concentrate our full attention on today and stop being so intense and stirred up.

Calm down and lighten up! Laugh more and worry less. Stop ruining today worrying about yesterday or tomorrow—neither of which we can do anything about. We need to stop wasting our precious “now,” because it will never come again. The next time you are tempted to get anxious or upset about something—especially something in the past or the future—think about what you are doing and turn your mind to what is going on today.

Learn from the past and prepare for the future, but live in the present.

Being accepted


Its a good feeling to realize that there is someone who can understand what we exactly think in our mind. Definitely everyone would agree with this. Because everyone wants to be accepted by the other person. And the realization that the other person loves the way you think, you speak, loves the way you interact with people, and admires your beauty etc. definitely helps by boosting your self-confidence. It gives you the power to move forward in life.
The major problem in today’s marriages is that this  understanding can’t be found between a husband and wife. Selfishness inside them wants to get everything from others, but not ready to give anything. It’s not only in marriages but also in other relationships also.
It’s common today to deceive the partner if he or she is very much sincere in their life. Because the person who cheats firmly believes that their partner can be easily fooled by showing fake love because he or she is an idiot who won’t understand anything.
Everyone expects love and sincerity back from the other person especially in marriages. It’s very easy to fall into a sin today because of the drastic change in the technology and moral values.
“Your conscience will be affected by the moral lives you see around you, by the standards of right and wrong that is practiced in your culture and by your own responses to it.”- Kristian and Ritva Sand.

It’s very important in a relationship to be accepted by the other person. Marriage needs hard work. Satan is waiting to get inside your relationship when you are neglecting your love to your partner. Remember the vows taken during your marriage. A positive change is necessary as we grow older, and we must. But it should not be a growth when your partner is still waiting for you to stretch your helping hands. Both should grow simultaneously.
When you criticize others, check whether you are perfect. When you find faults in your partner, think that your partner loved the way you are and accepted you and gave themselves to you. And you should love them as they are.
