Can A Lack Of Desire For God Be Helpful?

Let me find thee, Matthew Smith, indelible grace, music, starry night, starry sky, the wonder, indescribable, need of the hour, God I need you, lack of desire, Paul, Acts, He gave himself up for me, Galatians, spiritual guidance, Spirit-led, life of Christ in you, still small guidance, direction, Macedonia, Greek Rescue, joyful

In every relationship, there are those things that are never communicated satisfyingly enough.

Sometimes we fail to convey our respect to our parents, sometimes we fail to express our love to our spouse well enough. Sometimes, we blow it like a mad bomber blows up a bridge.

If you have loved someone, anyone, in whatever capacity you could, you might know what I am talking about. Right now I am trying to communicate two things in my relationship with Jesus Christ, the only God and my dear Saviour- His greatness and His patient love with me and- my dire need for Him.

How much more awesome is He, than I thought!

How can I enjoy Christ so less!

Let me find thee, Matthew Smith, indelible grace, music, starry night, starry sky, the  wonder, indescribable, need of the hour, God I need you, lack of desire, Paul, Acts, He gave himself up for me, Galatians, spiritual guidance, Spirit-led, life of Christ in you, still small guidance, direction, Macedonia, Greek Rescue, joyful
Let me find Thee

But I cannot communicate it well enough.

I got to know these things because of two reminders and a lesson I received recently.

1. “And they went through the region of Phrygia and Galatia, having been forbidden by the Holy Spirit to speak the word in Asia. And when they had come up to Mysia, they attempted to go into Bithynia, but the Spirit of Jesus did not allow them”. Acts 16:6,7

Paul Timothy and Silas are all eager to share the message of Jesus with people who’ve never heard of His love and neither of their need to repent of sins. But these verses show the only time in the Bible where missionaries were prevented by God Continue reading “Can A Lack Of Desire For God Be Helpful?”

Trivial News : Rainbow Lips And #Selfiewithdaughter

This is the age of standing up for movements and causes.
Go to Change.org. See the number of petitions that rally behind causes – and rightly so, because justice is very important.

Few people support a movement to actually serve somebody else. Some do it to draw attention to themselves. “Kya cool hai hum”. Others do it because the success or failure of the cause is linked to who they think are, their very identity.

Two movements became popular recently – If you are from India, you already know both.

1.#Selfiewithdaughter and Gandi baat
What do I mean by Gandi baat?
Foul insults!

The Indian TV actress Shruti Seth was one of the few who spoke against the #selfiewithdaughter movement (See? Another cause!) that was promoted across Twitter by Shri Narendra Modi, our Prime Minister.

This movement, which started in a village in Haryana has now become infamous for the torrents of abusive comments Seth received on her Twitter profile. Shameful and vile is the vitriol, from men and women alike, for opposing Modiji’s campaign. Her husband, Danish Aslam, collected some choice tweets and sent them to Modiji’s Twitter handle. Here is how Shruti Seth felt after being immersed in a deluge of expletive-tweets :

#selfiewithdaughter punished this daughter

I am certain Modiji wanted to esteem the girl child in a country with patriarchal overtones like ours – hats off to that village in Haryana who started this trend. Maybe Shruti Seth and other voices were quick to judge P.M Modi. Continue reading “Trivial News : Rainbow Lips And #Selfiewithdaughter”
