“If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word,

and My Father will love him,

and We will come to him

and make Our home with him.”

Proclaim My Word

7 years back while I was sitting on the bus on my way to work, I clearly heard the Lord tell me, “Proclaim my Word.”

Each and every one of us is so unique and what we carry is so unique. In the eyes of our Master we’re all the same, there’s not one more important than the other.

It’s very important that you find out what your gifts are and what the Lord wants you to do. I don’t think anyone is called to sit and do nothing. It’s time to go beyond.

word-of-God

Being a Minister’s wife is a calling in itself. Even though my husband is seen more in the front lines, it doesn’t mean my calling is any less or less important. If we can learn to accept our calling and run with it, that will help us in the long run from many disappointments.

Every gift in the body is useful.

For as in one body we have many members, and the members do not all have the same function, so we, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another. Having gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, let us use them: if prophecy, in proportion to our faith; if service, in our serving; the one who teaches, in his teaching; the one who exhorts, in his exhortation; the one who contributes, in generosity; the one who leads, with zeal; the one who does acts of mercy, with cheerfulness.(Romans 12:4-8)

But, there’s no point in having a mighty calling and doing nothing about it.

Without a vibrant prayer life, it doesn’t matter if you have all the gifts. [tweet this]
 
Sometimes you can be so good at something but if you don’t have a prayer life it just becomes an act. [tweet this]

There are people that just function out of the the gifts and that’s it.

The gift given to you by The Lord is not something to boast about. No matter the gift you have, what’s important is to maintain a constant time of consecration to the Lord in prayer and in His word.

Also find ways at your local church to serve. Start by serving the church and your pastor in any ways possible. Jesus being the Son of God did come to be served, but to serve!

If God has called you to preach and you don’t read your Bible, how will you get the contents and revelations to preach in the first place? We do the soaking part and God does the using part. Just like Esther in the Bible. Before she could meet the King, there was a process of waiting and soaking herself. It is in that process that God prepares us for our destiny.

Yes, it’s also true that He doesn’t use us simply because of our prayer lives alone, rather He uses us because of His grace and the calling on our lives.

Prayer and meditating on the Word will unleash things in the spirit that will help you go boldly and confidently to proclaim His name wherever He calls you. [ClickToTweet]

The Lord looks for a willing heart who will say yes to His call. For those who know they are called have to learn to be still and wait until God opens a door and not get discouraged in the process of waiting.

As the Bible says in 1 Thessalonians 5:24He who calls you is faithful; He will surely do it.

 

Finding Your Identity In Christ

 This year will make 9 years since I came to Jesus. One of my main challenges in this journey was being able to see myself in His eyes.

The doctors said I would be an abnormal child as I was a breech baby. My mother wanted a boy as she already had my older sister. While giving birth, she pleaded to God saying, “Even if I get a girl it’s fine, but please give me normal child.” I was supposed to be  ‘Tony’ thinking I was a boy, but they named me ‘Tiny’ after they saw I was a girl. Even though they loved me I knew my mother had a void in her heart. When I asked her why she didn’t want a girl she said,”I don’t want my daughter to go through the hardships of labour.” There was a sense of rejection in my heart as I grew up.

Knowing The Heart of God

Many times we try to fight our own battles. Although the Lord says in the scriptures that He will fight our battles, we tend to take things into our own hands. The problem with fighting our own battles is that we don’t trust God enough and consequently give up too easily. In my observation I noticed that my parents’ generation seems to have a higher tolerance level. The divorce rates are much lower and they generally work harder. It now seems like the divorce rates and unemployment rates are on a high because our endurance and tolerance level is much less. When we don’t understand certain things we give up. read more…

A Desperate Generation! [Podcast]

Happy New year to all of you!

I hope this New year and Christmas bring much peace and joy, and most of all, His mercy that endures forever.

I have been recently doing some audio recording on SoundCloud as I find that the easiest. I hope you would be blessed by it and that you would grow in a greater measure in your walk with Him! read more…

Not Growing Weary!

You may have wondered many a times why you need to do what you do-doing good. Sometimes, things may seem challenging-as a full time working parent, single parent, businessperson or a pastor. But remember, no good that we do is in vain.

“So we must not grow weary in doing good, for in due time we will reap, if we do not give up. So then, whenever we have an opportunity, let us do good to all people, and especially to those who belong to the family of faith.” Galatians 6:9,10 read more…

Four Ways To Stay Connected With God

As Christians we are always in a constant battle. Just when we think it’s over, the enemy will come against you with different forms of trials and temptations.

But the greatest deception comes when we think that we won’t fall.

The thought that we won’t fall comes from a deceiving spirit. The devil would love for us to think we are safe so that we will then stop being alert and cautious. We become wise in our own eyes for our own downfall.

Proverbs 3:7 says, “Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the LORD and shun evil.”

Here are few things we should keep in mind: read more…

Four Quick Lessons From Elisha

My passion to blogging has never waned. However, I found that video blogging is much quicker than writing a post.

Here is an impromptu video, so please don’t mind me talking softly as Kathryn was sleeping.

Let me know if this works well.

I would like to continue doing more video blogs.

Kindly leave your thoughts below. read more…

Learning Everyday Dependency With Jesus

I remember the times when I would often go to God even for the smallest issues. More like how my baby girl Kathryn was when she was an infant. She could do nothing by herself. She clinged to me and it continued all day long.

Kathryn is now nineteen months old. She doesn’t need as much as help as before. She can walk, run and even climb up a chair by herself. She even knows how to play her videos on her video player. And it starts to worry me when she’s silent for too long because I know she’s up to some mischief. read more…
