The hour is here

Today was such an awesome day. The meetings were fabulous. Im so refreshed!!

What I learnt today really got me excited.. Here’s why-I always thought that it is the Holy Spirit who gives me what belongs to the Father. I didnt read carefully.. The Holy Spirit doesnt give me what belongs to the Father and the Son, He makes it known to me, He reveals it to me. Its up to me to take it or not. (John 16:14,15) Cool eh?
My hour has come to take what is mine and to walk in the power of Christ. The anointing that the disciples had to raise the dead, heal the sick with just their shadow didnt die with them..its there even today!! Because the One who anoints still lives!
This year I choose to believe that God will work signs, wonders and miracles thru me. Not because I have any special abilites or talents but because the power of the Creator God lives in me!!
Woohoo! 2007, Here I come!!!

Im not going to live in the past. I live in the here and the now.. carrying in my heart a hope for my future. My failures and defeats will not live on. My hurt and shame will pass away. What remains is the purpose and the will of God for my life! And what a glorious one it is!!!!

No time to lose. Time’s running short. If I have to see the life changing power of God work thru me, I better get down on my knees!

My hour has come. You better believe it!

Your hour is here too.. if you believe.

For the past two days, I have been really upset with my brother. He didnt do anything.. its just the way he gets treated around the house.He got a license just a week or two ago.. and he’s already driving everywhere. I have had a license for the past year and a half and my mom doesnt let me touch the car. I get to sit next to her and be silent so that I wont disturb her while driving. That is so unfair.
I also noticed how he never did anything around the house. His daily routine- Eat, TV, Computer, Drive, Eat, TV, Computer, Read, Eat, TV, Eat, TV, Eat, Sleep. Notice -No helping around the house at all. So, today, I decided that I should do something about it. (My mom wasnt about do anything anytime soon) I asked.. (ok ordered) him to sweep the house. Both my mom and dad came to his rescue saying that he cant do anything that would make him sneeze. ARGH! How lame is that?! So finally I did it!! And my mom in her attempt to make me feel better [?!] said something like.. in our house I do all the work.. dad doesnt do much. Its a girl’s job.. Where in the world does it say that? The Bible? The secret Rule Book every Indian Married couple lives by???!!! My response to that was- If my husband doesnt do a thing at home, im sending him back to his mother’s place!!!
Oh well….

I have been to the mall twice in the last week and each time we shopped for quite a large sum.. hehehe.. I bought makeup.. Im not giving you the exact amount.. somewhere over 5000 Rs.. way over 5000 Rs. My mom was not too pleased (i let her use some of it today!!) My Dad doesn’t know…yet 😀

Tomorrow, Ill be at a youth meeting all day. Shyju Mathew will be speaking.. im not sure on what..Lol.. but I’m really believing God to move..

I’ve been having the strangest dreams lately.. and the worst thing is I dont remember anything when I wake up.. I hate it when that happens.

College in 3 days!!! *groan*

2 days left for 2007.. Woohoo!!!!

I havent posted in awhile..too lazy..
Christmas was great. Spent it with my family. Hadn’t seen most of them in a long time. Realised how much I missed my cousin Robin and his wife Julie (who weren’t there). They’re both in London right now along with their daughter Natalie. Robin is hilarious! He can always make us laugh..(except when he’s in a bad mood)  and Julie is the sweetest and the smartest person I know. She’s been a brain since she was in school, ended up a really good doctor. She’s also the cause of all the pressure my mother put on me to become a doctor! Ahh.. But I forgive her! Ain’t I the sweetest..

I’m not going to give away too much.. but Ill be moving soon. I dont know how soon and I’m not saying where.. But its happening. And Im scared.. because I have the craziest thoughts running thru my head.. like what if no one talks to me? Or what if I end up all alone without a single friend? What do i do for food? What if I get really fat? Or where do I get my eyebrows done? This will be scary for me cause Ill be without my mom and Im so dependent on her for everything. Ill have to cook and clean by myself!! How awful!

So we’re all stuck at home with this all Mumbai water-cut thing. I so desperately want to go out but Im not too keen on eating anything.. I really dont want to know what they use as a substitute for water..

My dad will be here on thursday.. for three weeks! I have this feeling Im not getting any chocolates this time. My mom must have already told him tales of how fat I’ve gotten!

I finished reading ‘How Opal Mehta got kissed, got wild and got a life’. Thats the book that was in the news because the writer supposedly got her material from three other books. I personally thought it was a lot like the movie ‘ Mean girls’ but whatever.. good read if you’re really bored! Now I’m reading ‘The Devil wears Prada’. It was a book before it got turned into a movie.. how original!!

College reopens on the 2nd of Jan. How pathetic is that?!

still bored~

Here’s wishing you all a very merry Christmas and a happy new year!!
I pray the coming year will be filled with God’s love, comfort and strength!

With love,

This week has been so ‘christmassy’. All the lights and the tress and the stars etc etc. I only wish we had snow.. We had our Annual College Christmas Function this tuesday and this was the first time I attended. It was really nice! First, they had these really adorable kids from St. Columba High School come up on stage dressed up like christmas trees and snowmen with a choir of more adorable little kids to back them up. They even had a Mary and a Joseph! They were so adorable.. Reminded me of how much I love kids and how I really really want to have my own… ill have to wait a long time for that… So anyway, after that we had the Christmas carol competition and we won!!!! woohoo!!! All thanks to Marc!! He did an amazing job with the choir! we also put up a dance on the song ‘Light of the World’.. well done guys. you were all so good!! I got home at a quarter to 12! hehehe.. but my mom wasnt upset (thank you Jesus!)

I was at Eben’s place this week and I met Nathan again like after a year. He is so cute!!! He still remembered me (i have no idea how) and he kept laughing and jumping and playing with me like we were old friends!! lol. (Oscar, I just have a way with kids.. unlike you 😀 ) Ruby was her usual crazy self. I really need to spend more time with her! All her mallu jokes! lol

Someone told me that I write like the psalmist.. you know the whole Let my enemy’s head be dashed upon a rock thing.. haha! that really made me laugh! i had no idea that was what I sounded like!! lol
