Sunday Blessings

Thank you dear friends for your comments on my last post.. '.I was hungry. ' We are living in a broken world marred by sin and deprivation.Romans 8:20-25 says the whole creation groans for redemption from the slavery or curse it was subjected under because of the "Fall".Only when our Redeemer comes again to create a New Heaven and Earth will we be set free. Untill then our souls will be pierced by the sufferings of our fellowmen and our own.

We had a good church service and communion.It was a cold morning and a chilly sharp wind wrapped itself around us.

Right after church church, a lady knocked at our door and asked Mom if she remembered her. My mother was taken aback as she couldn 't and we all stared at her as if she was ET.I find it quite disconcerting when people demand to be remembered and I can 't.They make you feel like a newly hatched moron or someone melting into Alzhiemers.

Anyway, she turned out to be someone my parents/family knew ages ago and we had lost touch with her.When she was a young wife and mother, her husband became an alchoholic.This prompted her to take a road which was not good for her and her family.She encountered many desperate situations as a result.Her children grew up and her husband died.

One day she was watching Joyce Meyers on television. Joyce was talking about the forgiveness of sin, and how she received God 's pardon.The Holy Spirit stirred this lady 's soul and she started weeping and saying Lord if you can forgive Joyce Meyers, you can forgive me too. She prayed the sinners prayer and received Jesus as her Saviour.

She had come to give her testimony and tell Mama that now she is a new creation.Praise God.

What great rejoicing you must have had after you remembered her. When we have nothing left inside us is when God finally has our attention and we reach out to Him for help.

Dear Amrita,
what great blogs you are composing these days.
They touches and moves me to my inner core.
You've got a grip on your messages, making me feel they concern me here and now.
Keep on, dear Amrita, and God bless you.

nice reading your Sunday thoughts as usual...after reading them I feel everytime that there is still some hope in the world full of deprivation as you have rightly mentioned. I really envy you for the service you are doing, which I also long to day, maybe sometime...have a nice time!

Hi Amrita,
That was a wonderful experience for that woman to have known and accepted Jesus Christ. Yes we become a new creation upon our acceptance of Jesus Christ because the Holy Spirit enables our dead spirit to come alive in Jesus Christ. His righteousness is imputed upon us and we become righteous in the sight of God. Thanks for the wonderful post. God bless you and your family always.

I suppose that bears repeating... hee, hee, hee. (I need to be more patient with my computer, it's bogged down these days and I need clean it up...)

Praise God. It's so neat that she came back to tell your family about it. My brother-in-law became a Christian just a few weeks before he died. I'm so thankful to God that He heard the prayers of those that were praying for him. I love your colorful blog. You have some really neat posts.

Amrita said...

Thank you dear frinds for your your valuable comments.All the praise and glory belongs to God.His Spirit is moving all over the world as the song says.

Praise God Shari , your brother in law accepted Christ just before the Lord called him. You and all of us can meet him when we all get to heaven.
