9 April 2013, WORD4ALL: BROKEN & DESPAIR
(Psa 69:20) Insults have broken my heart, and I am in despair. I waited for sympathy, but there was none; for comforters, but found no one.
The world and the people are not good all the time and neither are we. We all go through bad times. We are known for mood swings and fluctuations of temper and are hardly stable in critical times. Yet, when we are hurt by others, we cry foul over the whole world. We jump up and down making a huge noise pointing fingers at others. We can hardly stand injustice but seldom realize how many times we were unjust even to our near and dear ones.
God allows pain and painful moments in our life to break us down so that He can build us in a much better way as well as to make us realize how others would have felt through our own negative and scornful reactions and response to them.
There is a popular saying in Tamil, we can understand the intensity of others headache and toothache, only if we experience it.
What sort of a situation are you going through now? Are you broken and in despair, desperate to come out of your trouble and searching for someone to comfort? Just take a moment to think of others who are going through similar situations. Think about the dear ones, your sweet hearts and beloved ones on the numerous occasions you brought pain into their life. Pray for them. Try to heal their wounds and hurt feelings by taking some remedial action. Forgive others who are scornful to you.
Job prayed to God for his friends’ deliverance before getting delivered. Comfort others and be comforted. Give and it shall be given unto you. Don’t be too self cantered or selfish in life. Think about others. You will see the hand of God working for you.

What a great HOPE we have!.
Don’t cry. Let the pain of death drive you into a person of Godly purpose. Save as many souls as possible from the clutches of death and devil. Keep doing this greatest work for the mankind. Every soul counts.

(Gal 3:13) Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us—for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who is hanged on a tree”.
In those days, only the worst criminals were crucified to death. It was considered a curse or cursed in life if anyone was crucified. But Jesus took that mean and horrible punishment on HIM for you and me because He loved you so much and considered worth dying for you.

27 March 2013, WORD4ALL : COME RUNNING TO JESUS
(Matt 11:28) Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.
Are you limping in your spiritual life with bleeding wounds and with no one to approach for help? Neither to God because of the killing guilt of not keeping up your words and promises made to Him?
Are you struggling with your sorrow filled soul with no assurance of another deliverance from the sinking sinful habit?
Is the devil constantly whispering in your heart that everything is over in your life? Is he telling you that you have come to the end of life and there is no more scope or future? Are you on the verge of giving up on life?
Are you running aimlessly in life seeking for the fresh air of hope and a new life?

20 March 2013, WORD4ALL : ENDURING INSULTS & HUMILIATION
(Psa 69:7) For I endure insults for Your sake; humiliation is written all over my face.
Christian life is not easy. It is not a bed of roses. God expects us to be soft, patient, enduring and long suffering like JESUS, even during the moments of insults and humiliation. This is the toughest moment of our life.
Are you going through these kinds of situations? Are you fed up with life because of the people who are repeatedly humiliating you both in public and private? Are you crying “How long this will happen?”
Don’t worry. Keep going looking at the face of Jesus. Every painful moment you endured as a child of God is recorded in Heaven. He who watches your agony will reward you and will lift you up before the eyes of others. He shall honour you and shall bless you more. Your sorrows will be turned into Joy.
He shall lift you up before the very eyes of those who humiliated you and shall keep you over those who insulted you. Just trust God alone. Don’t look at the world, the people or the surroundings. Let your eyes be on JESUS.
22 Feb 2013, WORD4ALL : SHUT YOUR MOUTH !!!!!
(Pro 21:23) Watch your tongue and keep your mouth shut,and you will stay out of trouble.
Venting our emotions by putting them into words may be the easiest way to handle it but, it is the most unproductive,useless and dangerous one. Sometimes we hurt our near and dear ones by letting our anger, hurt or regret talk. Wounds caused by words take the longest to heal and the scars left by them are the deepest and difficult to erase from memory. Many a times loose words let out in fun can also have a devastating effect destroying precious relationships.Do not let your emotions control your tongue.
Instead of talking to people when you are down, the best way is to talk to God. Take everything that is weighing you down to Him in prayer. Surrender it to Him and let Him calm you. In moments like this, we may have to follow the famous saying “SHUT YOUR MOUTH AND KEEP QUIET”. Yes, we should learn to close our mouth to the people but open our heart to JESUS.
Guard your mouth!! What kind of words do you speak every day? Do your words build others or crush them down? Does it comfort others or agitate and frustrates them? Just because you are having a bad day does not mean others should also have a horrible day. Have you surrendered your tongue to the Lord???
15 Mar 2013, WORD4ALL : DON’T OVER WORK
(Prov 23:4,5) Don’t wear yourself out trying to get rich. Be wise enough to know when to quit. In the blink of an eye wealth disappears, for it will sprout wings and fly away like an eagle.
Are you behind wealth, OR are you focused on wealth accumulation? Are you into the trap of working extra time all the time for realizing your financial dreams?
Being wealthy or rich is essential for a comfortable living, but that cannot become your life. You should keep riches in its place, else it will boss over you. You will lose your individuality and will become a slave to it. Wealth and riches are not stable.
If you start trusting them, you will be disappointed. Within a blink of the eye, they can desert you and leave you as an orphan in the street.
Instead, put your trust in the Lord. He will not leave you alone. Don’t over work and spoil your health. Be faithful to God even in taking care of your body.
15 Jan 2013, WORD4ALL: FATHER & DEFENDER
(Psa 68:5) A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in His holy dwelling.
Are you defenseless? Perplexed about all that is happening around? Are you terrified by the wicked people around because you are all alone in this world?
Are you upset and fearful because of the recent happenings of sexual violation and discriminations? Are you fighting with loss of confidence to live a peaceful life in this world?
Lookup to the cross of Calvary. Our God is all-powerful and just. He takes care of the fatherless and comes to the rescue and defense of the widows. Fear not. He watches over you. You will not be let down.
