No brains needed...only heart, faith and love

This is an excerpt from the time I went to tenali.Down here in Tenali,
Attending a church that my aunt used to attend.
Women outnumber men ( this at least proves that most men aren't hypocrites )
The women here sing, according to their inspiration, each one a different song. No tempo, no tune, no melody, no nothing!
A braying donkey win a competition with these people here.
Beethoven would commit suicide twice.
A little kid on a rustic drum playing the same beat for every song which obviously doesn't go with the song, people clapping hands with a don't care syndrome for basic rhythm is all you can find.
BUT you know what? ( and this but makes all the difference of course )
God blessed these people with himself. You could sense the presence of God in this place.
He rejoices even over their ignorance be it in terms of intellect or music...
His measuring scales are deeper and wider than we can even comprehend.
He sees the heart, he understands humane limitations and helples…

Dear Judas, with love

It takes a Judas iscariot to betray.
Anyone could have handed over Christ!
But it takes only Judas to betray,
One among the twelve, he must have seen the lame walk,
The blind see, the deaf hear and the dead raised to life.
The one who felt the love of Christ and participated in the 'first communion ever' .
And betrayed Christ with a loving kiss!
It takes a Brutus to stab Ceaser,
A loved and trusted Delilah to chop Samson's hair,
And A David to slay Uriah.
A barking donkey or a braying dog can do no harm.
It's the ones closest to our hearts that
can draw a sword into it.
The only bright side of this is that we've had the courage ,
Courage to be vulnerable enough and love someone so bad that they could bruise us this immensely.
When I hear this I'm reminded of "Courage the cowardly fool".

Consistency - HE masters it

The moon doesn't only belong to the night!
If we care to see, moon's always there...
In the morning and in the night ..
Just because its counterpart, the sun overpowers it in the morning,
It doesn't cease to show up!
In fact, it's the sun which goes down and comes up every single day.
But moon doesn't!  What's so much fuss about sun and moon haaaan? !!!
Just celestial bodies! ? !Let's ponder, if the sun represents our struggles & pain...
Then moon is like our loving God.Yes,  we might have gushing happiness. ...pounding pain..
But through it all, we have this consistent God who never gives up on us, who never betrays and who always stays,
He loves us, and he is ready to give up anything for us! He gave up HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON!  what else would we want!
Sure the moon gets unnoticed by us, and sometimes due to the sunshine we may not trace it. ... but let's remember even if the Earth,  celestial bodies, people give away...HE WON'T!
He is our…


In HIS silence let me wait,
In my folly, he'll let me repent

Where to point? ;)

Don't point me to the skies,
There's lot beyond to seeDon't point me to others,
They've gone a rougher wayDon't point me to the worst,
Even now I feel sorry for themDon't point me to the saints,
They are spiritual giantsDon't point me to my past,
I had few happy days to count onDon't point me to my family,
I have lot pain to give emPoint me to jesus, yes point me to cross
Point me to dear Lord and his loving wounds,
His pierced hands and his side,
Point me to HIM and HIM ALONE....

Rules or no rules?

I saw a video on YouTube..

"Usain Bolt's world record event". 💖

I started watching it, the introduction, warm-up then the race. It was so magical a run! I thought he was extraordinary in his performance. I watched the replay with same awestruck fascination. But in the end, when he was interviewed he says, "Sure I've made a world record, but my technique was wrong"!

Such  a startling statement!

Imagine our life that way. 
Unfortunately or fortunately, ours is a race where the race track moves. 
We never know when we reach the finish line. But when we are nearing it, we better have the affirmation that our journey had had eternal relevance and conformed to rules. We better not regret about our technique that it was wrong when everybody is appreciating us for our seemingly great spiritual life.
