One step closer!

I have a lot to write about but most of it would hurt a lot of people so I’ll stop myself from writing about it here. Lets just say that sometimes if you procrastinate for too long.. things can get really ugly. But thank God for the grace to forgive. Thank God for family as well.. without whom you’d probably never learn the art of Forgiveness. πŸ™‚

Weeks of working over college applications has finally paid off!! I have been accepted into a college in Toronto for a course that I believe is a step closer to fulfilling my calling! I am excited and extremely nervous.

I have about five months left in Mumbai. I cant believe its finally happening!

This is it. After three years of praying and talking about it and deciding against it and talking some more and praying some more…. AAHHHH!!! its finally happening!!

Surprisingly too much excitement leads to semi-writer’s block. πŸ˜€


At four in the morn..

Its 4 am. I have no idea why I’m up this late. I’m so bored..Wish something woud happen.Everyone’s probably fast asleep so I cant talk to anyone. Maybe I should go and wake my Mom up and tell her I want some Chai.
Its so weird but I was someone who hated tea. And I drink more tea than Coffee these days! What is the matter with me? Am I turning into a total mallu??!!

Its 4 am. Did I mention that already?

Eben and I spent some time together..after a pretty long time. Its not like I’ve not been talking to him or anything.But most of last year, we were busy and when we did meet there was always a lot of people around. So, we cant really talk about our favorite topics.
I missed his levelheadedness.
Oh and I like the way he drives. Its a refreshing change from my mom. πŸ™‚

Right now, I’m checking out the Graffiti application on FB. Take a look at the top artists of the week. These guys are awesome. I wish I could draw or paint or something.. But even my stick figures look strange..

Its 4.15 am. I need to get to bed.

None but Jesus

In the quiet, in the stillness
I know that You are God
In the secret of Your presence
I know there I am restored

When You call I won’t refuse
Each new day again I’ll choose

There is no one else for me
None but Jesus
Crucified to set me free
Now I live to bring Him praise

In the chaos, in confusion
I know You’re Sovereign still
In the moment of my weakness
You give me grace to do Your will

When You call I won’t delay
This my song through all my days

All my delight is in You Lord
All of my hope, all of my strength
All my delight is in You Lord Forevermore

I’m a tiny bit closer to convincing my mom about a trip to Goa. The plan initially was a trip for all of my friends with my mom as the adult figure. Not the greatest idea I know.. But there was no other way that she’d let me go with just my friends. I wonder if she doesnt trust me..hmm… But anyway, a friend of hers suggested today that we should take a trip coz’ Justin and I are both free… and thankfully this time “trip/holiday” does not register as a one month stay in Saudi. Right now, I’m letting her think it was her idea. I just have to convince her about 6-7 friends who *might* join us. πŸ˜€
Not the easiest thing in the world..but not impossible either.

Sun and Sand on my mind.. πŸ™‚

What I’ve been upto…

I think I have an idea about what to do to get to my calling. Not an easy road. But necessary. I can’t serve unless all the dirt is out from under the carpet. Cleaning is definitely hard work. But God’s faithful and He’ll help me through it like He promised.

Watched Juno today.. and the first minute into the movie and I was well, really shocked.. “What in the world am I doing here? And who recommended this movie to me?” But apart from those first few minutes… Good movie. I love the characters… especially Juno. Would I watch it again? Hell yeah! πŸ˜€

Easter is a week away and I’m pretty excited about what God’s going to do.We’re having an open ground meeting and filling that ground up with anyone who needs God. I know a lot of people are going to leave that meeting with their miracle. I can’t wait to see the joy on their faces.

More soon.

Still glued to Prison break,

From The Word

Blessed is the man whose strength is in You
Whose heart is set on pilgrimage
As they pass through the Valley of Baca
They make it a spring
The rain also covers it with pools
They go from strength to strength
Each one appears before God in Zion

O Lord God of hosts hear my prayer;
Give ear, O God of Jacob!
O God, behold our shield,
And look upon the face of Your anointed

For a day in your courts is better than a thousand
I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God
Than dwell in the tents of wickedness

For the Lord God is a sun and shield
The Lord will give grace and glory
No good thing will He withhold
From those who walk uprightly

O Lord of hosts
Blessed is the man who trusts in You!

Even as I seek to serve Him, I trust him to make all things beautiful in His time.
Blessed is the man who trusts in Him. Β 

From my heart

Calling. Passion. These are some of the words that I’ve been hearing and thinking *a lot* about.

There is in me a God-given desire. A desire that was birthed about 3 years ago. I have lived everyday with a dream that one day I would see that desire come to life. But even now that dream seems as far as it was three years ago. And its bothering me.
Its not like I’m unhappy doing what I’m doing right now. But this isn’t it. This isn’t my calling. This isn’t what I dream about every night. This is not what I want to do for the rest of my life.

All I want is to do what I have been called to do. Its a big calling. Even I haven’tΒ  entirely understood the enormity of it. I still want it. I don’t care what it means. I don’t care what I have to give up. I want to see that dream come alive! Somehow.
I don’t even know if I’m ready for it. But there is nothing else on my mind right now .

Looking up,

My new header is dedicated to… well Why don’t you try guessing again? πŸ˜›

Here’s a clue- its not Rakhi Sawant or Himmesh Reshammiya.

Time Management

I really want to put up a post. But I have nothing to write about. I’m not upset about anything. I dont have a need to complain. I’m really quite happy! πŸ™‚
And I do manage to have strange conversations on the phone.. But I think thats only because I have been away from people for so long. People other than family that is. They are people too.. but they are people like me. Crazy people.
This post is really starting to sound strange..
I’ve been watching Prison Break! and that series is like a drug. I am so addicted! Well ok.. not that addicted. I have gone more than 12 hours without watching a single episode. πŸ˜€
And I never want to go to Prison!

*tries to be a little less crazy*
I’m so peaceful right now.. bout a lot of things. Things are working well for me right now. I feel content and yet there is that certain bit of dissatisfaction but thats just there to make sure you go ahead for more. More out of life. More out of love.

But peaecful still..

The only reason I put up my title as Time management.. Well, I’m just testing a theory that Oscar and I spoke about.


I am currently hooked on to Prison Break. Cannot think of anything else right now. Will write more when I am in a better frame of mind. πŸ˜›
