Having a thankful attitude helps us to enjoy over everyday life in-spite of our difficulties. We can decide each morning to have a good attitude throughout the day. A good attitude makes the best out of anything in life. It is not easy to have a good attitude always but the more we need God, the more we experience His power in our lives. Being a positive person will always make us happy. The most common question asked is how to be thankful when things are not going well. We can be thankful if we believe “all things together work for good for those who love God, who are called according to his purpose” (Romans 8:28). We need to know that God has a good plan for us, “for surely I know the plans I have for you, says the LORD, plans for your welfare and not for harm” (Jeremiah 29:11).  

 

In today’s world, suffering, pain, sickness, accidents, death has increased tremendously. During this time people run all over the world to get peace, healing and consolation, but they do not find it… This is because, “the world and its desires are passing away, but those who do the will of God live forever” – 1 John 2:17. The world can offer you the best of all material things that you want, but it cannot give you peace and happiness of  mind. That is why the word of God tells us, “Do not love the world or the things in the world. The love of the Father is not in those who love the world” – 1 John 2:15

We all are born in the world, live in the world and die in the world, while living here on earth, we live as though we will live here forever. But the truth is, this world is only an illusion, a maya and will disappear from our life, when our end draws near. And that is why the word of God reminds us saying “Do not love the world or the things in the world. The love of the Father is not in those who love the world; for all that is in the world – the desire of the flesh, the desire of the eyes, the pride in riches – comes not from the Father but from the world. And the world and its desire are passing away, but those who do the will of God live forever” (1 Jn 2:15-17)

Everyone here on earth has the joy of receiving from others. But when it comes to give, our hands are short. We expect  others to share their wealth and good things with us. But when we are asked to share, we think twice, isn’t it? We want God to bless us but after receiving, we forget God until another need arises. But dear brothers and sisters, in giving, we truly receive. St. Paul says “God loves a cheerful giver” (2 Cor 9:7). It is true that God truly loves a cheerful giver. That is why we read in the book of Malachi “Bring the full tithe into the storehouse, so that there may be food in my house and thus put me to the test, says the Lord of hosts; see if I will not open the windows of heaven for you and pour down for you an over flowing blessing” (Malachi. 3:10). Two weeks ago, a brother named Basil Fernandes, shared his testimony. In the year 2007, when he attended my 5 days retreat, he realized that he should give his 1/10th tithe, without fail. He had only 2 branches, with hardly 10 people to work, he was staying in a rented house, he had to travel by public transport, he was into deep debts. But after 5 years, he is blessed with 160 branches, with more than 400 staff, he has his own 3 bedroom private apartment, brand new car, and he is freed from all his debts. All because he never failed to give what belongs to God. without fail he gives his 1/10th to God’s work and attends retreat every month with his family.

TESTIMONIALS

LORD IS MY HELP

Oh Lord you are my master,
Unless you build me, I will not grow better,
You are my future holder,
Take my responsibilities on your shoulder.

I can't do anything without you,
Weak and feeble I am on my own.
On you do I lean forever and ever.
Never cast me down and hold me when I stumble.

You are the root of all wisdom and Master of this creation,
You know the beginning and the end,
You know us better than we know ourselves.
Jesus please have control on our lives.

He is able and for him nothing is impossible,
Let us not be rigid and depend on our failing strength,
But let's be humble and offer our life into his hands.
For Jesus is our Creator and Father of all universe.

WISDOM OF GOD

Lord you’re the wisdom,
I seek you more than a gold or silver,
Remain in me forever,
This is my prayer O Lord Jesus.

Abba Father my God,
By your wisdom you created this world,
Remain in me O my creator,
Your value is much more than precious of precious stones.

Your knowledge surpasses everything,
Who are we before your throne of insight,
O Lord fill me with your spirit of light and knowledge,
You be my guide and every time and everywhere instruct me.

Glory be to you O Jehovah forever,
For always being gracious on us all,
Take delight in us O Heavenly Father,
That in your wisdom we may grow wilder.

- Maria Lobo, Mumbai.
