My Story:

When I read the stories of the Bible….. Woah!!! Faith floods me… that I feel that I can walk as a single woman in Rajini style…. and just blow the mountain away!!!! πŸ˜€Β 

I’m a thinker…. and so I got thinking!!! What so special about the Faith heroes??? Were’nt they normal people like you and me??? Yet they were people who had immense Faith, that God decided to have their stories written in the Bible to encourage you and me.Β 

I was thinking….. What if my story was written in the Bible…. I think it would go something like this:

“Then God spoke to Varna….. and spoke to her again…. but she still kept freaking out…. and eventually the Lord could not fix Varna but the promise was fulfilled anyway!”

That was just on the lighter side, but what do you think your story would look like??? When God gives a promise…. irrespective of whether we believe or not, it WILL be fulfilled. But while ‘waiting’ on those promises, what is our response to our current circumstances???

God has an appointed time for every deliverance. And if the clock is ticking right, the time that God has set in His own divine will, will surely come and indeed we will have our deliverance. But in the mean time….. How are we RESPONDING to the work of the Lord in our lives??? Personally speaking….. I am handling it bad. πŸ™‚ I wish I handled my challenges a little better….. the way my athai said:

My athai (Usha athai) gently reminded me…. “Be happy…. enjoy life anyway, God will never forsake His chosen ones.”

All things indeed work together for good…. to those who love God. And if you love Jesus, there is no way that He has forgotten you. He IS working. Maybe our eyes don’t see His work today….. but one day when we do see it, it will all be WELL WORTH IT!!! Blessed be His name!!!

Have a fantastic month ahead!!!

About Varna Jeevagarajan

Hi there, I'm Varna Jeevagarajan. Originally from Chennai, but currently living in Saint Louis, US. Have been married to Tagore Jeevagarajan and blessed with two precious kids!!! Well, to say a little about myself.... I adore Jesus. And I enjoy writing! Put both together, and you get a blog that talks about my experiences with the Lord Jesus. I enjoy music and singing as well. And God has been gracious and enabled me to come out with an album called 'kanden'. I truly believe that every talent, small or great, ought to be used for magnifying and exalting His name and drawing the ends of the Earth to His throne!!!

    Hey akka..I think this is the first time I’m reading your blog and I like it πŸ™‚ I particularly like what you said about God’s appointed time. God’s calendar and ours usually don’t sync! I’ve learnt though that it’s best sticking to His rather than mine πŸ˜€ I’ve sometimes imagined myself to be one of the old testament day characters and wondered how God would have dealt with me if I had lived those days :p
