Hope in the Dark

We all gathered outside in the middle of our busy day to watch the magnificence that is the solar eclipse. We looked toward the sky in our solar glasses. When it got unusually dark at high noon everybody noted they could see the moon cover the sun. In reality the moon didn’t really cover the […]

My God believes

What a morning! The messages I woke up to got me enthused for the day quicker than usual. I habitually wait till late to respond to faith issues on group discussions, but this one I just couldn’t pass up. It seemed so complicated, but like with all matters concerning the God of love, it actually […]

I think I rest

I lay me down on the grass in this quiet place, took a few deep breaths and stared up the sky. Realized I am stuck to a massive rock spinning while hurtling through space around a gigantic ball of fire through a vastness that has no beginning or end. What is more, though I am […]

Poker face to eternity

I was told “the enemy always fights the hardest when he knows that God has something great in-store for us.” My initial reaction to that was “who the hell leaked out that kind of heavenly information to the opponent’s camp?” In truth? No one! God having a plan and a purpose for each of us […]

It’s still 160 days till Christmas but I am so excited and happy and overjoyed as though it is Christmas now. The donation drive we coordinated this year was a success.

One Promise Guaranteed

I wish people would treat their promises as seriously as businesses deal with their contracts. Because that’s what promises are… promises. It is something that’s supposed to be fulfilled at all cost, no matter what. In fact it’s supposed to be treated more valuably because it’s not conditional like a business contract. It’s more than […]

What I Know For Sure

I was just silently observing when the cyber-world gleamed in rainbow colors one day. The US court ruled country-wide legalization of same sex marriage. It marked the day love won, at least some claimed. The others mourned it to be a death sentence to the institution of natural human family. Some were just probably riding […]

To Know Your Love

I used to pray “Lord, please do not let me die without having really lived and really loved.” But how is it to really love? I do not know. Sometimes asking the question is more important than finding the answer. I was brought up knowing that God is love and that alone and no other […]

Freedom To Receive

We are granted free-will but few are the choices we are given. I pondered on that thought for a while with a little sense of pity for my tiny brain’s inability to grasp the wisdom of God behind it. I compared the things that my choices can affect and the choices that God already made […]
