Know your Season

It’s been a long time since I have written a blog but I learnt a lot during this phase. I believe that everything in our life happens for a reason and it unfolds at the right time.  For last two weeks, I was focused on doing professional certifications and made sure that my time  wasn’t wasted & my thoughts didn’t waiver but rather kept working on it to make sure that I get it. By God’s grace, I completed as well as earned the certification for what I worked for. But I learned an important lesson, every of one of us have been given a task or purpose that we need to work on and everything has a season.

In my profession, for me to become an Expert it takes time as well as we need to take one step at a time and be good in it. One of my uncle, was the chancellor in a college and during his period he made significant changes that helped the students to excel in their studies as well as took the college to the next well.  He was able to do it based on the experience he had, situations that he encountered and responsibilities that he was taking care of. But, he didn’t become a chancellor in a day, it took several years, he did his Master’s in his respective field, then became a researcher ,went on to be a Professor, later the Head of the Department & Board of directors, and finally became the Chancellor . I am proud of my uncle, at the same time he used to be a perfect example in living a fruitful life and a God-Fearing person.

During these days, I remembered him as well as understood that to reach our End Goal, we need to take on different seasons in our life with the boldness and promises that Christ has promised us. Every one of us hold onto promises that God would have given us in each stage of life and one thing for sure is that until all his promises are fulfilled in our life, we would be still on planet Earth living a life pleasing to him.  Also, we should know the season in which we are living and do the part given to us in the best possible way.

As a college student, I had the responsibility to study well and earn good grades.  Then, when I got my first job, my responsibility was to do my Job well and do it right. It doesn’t end there but rather work on your skill so that one day you would be a leader and help others in whatever ways possible. Also, taking care of our family and building them by keeping Christ as the cornerstone is far more important. We can be a good Boss in our organisation but if we don’t look after our family, everything that we have earned is a waste. Gift can’t be a replacement for you when you seemed to be missing in the family. It may be too much to handle, but it can all be handled when we have complete peace within ourselves by spending time with our Heavenly Father and reading his word that speaks life. Because, he alone can give us the peace that the world can’t give as well as the wisdom that surpasses all understanding.

 Take time for yourself, know your season and spend time with God to know what you need to do. You may be playing sports, involved in entertainment business, etc whatever field you are in, know your season, may be your success is just few steps away. Don’t give up on the promises that God gave you or on the talent that he has provided to you, it has its own season to be fulfilled and  when it comes true, it will show to his people that  He Lives and nothing is impossible for him. All you need to do, is to keep giving your best till then and wait for him to do the rest.

 The horse is prepared for the day of battle, but the victory belongs to the LORD [Proverbs 21:31]

Where’s my Focus?

I would like to share a message that I got from one of my well wisher and I felt that I needed to share it you all.

Am not sure where did they get this from but credit goes to our Saviour who had put this thought to his child.

Very Good Message From GOD

A lady went to the Priest and said… I won’t be attending Church anymore..

He said, may I ask why??
She said, I see people on their cell phones during service, some are gossiping, some just ain’t living right, they are all just hypocrites…

The Priest got silent, and he said, OK… But can I ask you to do something for me before you make your final decision?
She said, what’s that?

He said, take a glass of water and walk around the Church 2 times and don’t let any water fall out the glass.

She said, yes I can do that. She came back and said it’s done.

He asked her 3 questions.

1. Did you see anybody on their phone?
2. Did you see anybody gossiping?
3. Was anybody living wrong?

See, I didn’t see anything because I was too focused on this glass, so the water wouldn’t fall.
He told her, when you come to Church , you should be just that focused on God , so that YOU don’t fall.

THAT’S WHY JESUS SAID “FOLLOW ME,”.

He did not say follow Christians.

The message says it all, God has given us a life to portray him and to live an exemplary life. In order to get a great Job in one of the prestigious company, you need the skill as well as need to be focused on the technology that are you working on. I am working on Networking technology and everyday I learn new things as well as I can see that I have a long way to be a perfectionist in this Job.

After coming from vacation, It takes time to get into the networking skin and to work the way before I went for vacation.

I believe that God has to be the center in all parts of our life right from our Personal Life, Job, Family, relationship etc. We fail many a times at any part of our life, so we are in a process of moulding as well re-tuning from the Saviour himself.

Everyday, I am working on my character, skills etc but with God not helping me in my life everything is a waste.

It’s way better to put God’s word in action in real life. Many a times, remaining silent does prove a lot rather talking stuff that doesn’t mean anything.

Even talking about God to someone needs a perfect time and it’s Great to reflect HIM in many a times rather talking about him.

 

Don’t Wait, Start Doing!!

Myself & Many of us have always been hesitant or on the back-foot when it comes to serving God in one way or the other or following the vision that God wants us to go for.  I encountered God during my college days and knew from that very moment, my life’s purpose was to serve God in all possible ways. But, I have been through situations where I was hesitant sometimes; when I had a chance to serve God because I thought for myself whether I wasn’t qualified or was worthy of it. I had to keep fighting with this thought which was a stumbling block for many days.

Finally, I took a decision that am going to start serving God in all possible way, no matter what am battling within myself. I kept telling myself that God is with me, within me and he would be happy to see me doing things for him. This is what I did

  • Whenever I got time, I started to invest on reading my bible or listening to worship albums and sermons.
  • Spent my weekends attending church, catching up with my church team and being part of the youth team.
  • I made sure that that my mind was occupied with things that I need to do for God in that week and kept moving one day at a time
  • I kept thinking what can be done New at church for making the Sunday service more enjoyable & create an amazing experience.

I understood that when I started to take the first step in involving myself in building his kingdom, I felt that God’s presence in my life was stronger than ever before & there was a constant push that made me go for it. God doesn’t look at us the way people do, HE designed you for a purpose and HE alone can make you walk through the very END.

Start serving God in any possible way you can, when you do, you will learn a lot about HIM and can see God’s Hand leading you all the way. It’s not an exam that you need to GET prepared, it’s about walking with the LORD in every day of your life. And, it starts right from the moment you gave your life to HIM.

U-Turn

This is the First thing that stuck me when I wanted to start writing a blog, where I would like to share the Good news and my walk with the Lord.

Have you made the Biggest U-Turn of your life? Or do you think you need time to do that? I am referring to the important decision, where we decide to follow Christ, follow his ways and leave the sinful ways that hinders our Faith & Walk with Christ. This is the First step of our walk with Christ, where we redeem our vows with God & surrender our lives to his purpose. I have come across people who wait to make their decision for the right Sunday Service, need time to get over themselves from the Guilty conscience or what would people think etc.

You don’t need a sign, a self-cleaning process or any other superstitious things, it doesn’t work that way. It all stars with you, within you knowing that God is ready to hold you and take you to the road that he has prepared you. Don’t think that you would hurt him by turning to your old ways or you won’t be able to live up to his expectations. When you start the U-turn, just take one day at a time, focus on the things that you need to do as his Son/Daughter, fill yourselves with his word and surround yourself in fellow Christians and ask God to give you the ways to counter attack evil. When I made the biggest U-turn, I focused on doing things which was right in the eyes of God, I noticed the ways on how I make mistakes & ways that devil starts to lure me into his ways.  And, made myself aware of my situations and avoided them by surrounding in Godly presence. Knowing that God is in control of my life made me stop worrying and focus on things that God wants me to do.

Maybe you have made the U-turn, but you are having hiccups on the ways or seemed to be lost on the Goal that He set you in. Don’t give up on the hiccups as well as when you have turned for a little moment on your old ways, recall the promises that he made with you & shake your dust off and start the next moment knowing that he is always with you.

In life, we come across failure, like exams in high school or college, we don’t give up on that; rather we re-attempt to make it successful. Re-attempts doesn’t make you bad but rather makes us aware of ourselves & another chance to make it right.  we are in process of re-tuning ourselves to live as God wants which is our goal. I know it’s not an easy task, but when you take life one day at a time and make every walk pleasing to God, life with God becomes the most wonderful thing to do.

Walking with God becomes Easy when you make your Bible as the first person to ask for Advice!!!
