THE IMPORTANCE OF THE 6’E’S

little bit of life coaching for the weekIMG_2850

My dear friends, comrades, acquaintances, sweethearts hi, I am back yes the Indian aunty is back yes I had a creative spell of poetry now I decided to take the bull by it’s horns and write about the important 6 E’s in life.

No I am not talking about the results of my trigonometry exam but these E’s can make your life and shape your life for the better.

We often want what our friends and neighbours have, or we feel the grass is greener on the other side, yes the grass is greener especially in Northern Ireland we have fifty shades of green and India not wanting to be left out has fifty shades of brown every person in India has their own shade of brown from dusky, to wheatish to homely to milky white but we are all Indian thank God for our cosmopolitan, democratic, colourful India .

Now fifty shades of grey the less said about it the better , yes from colourful creation, to a colourful nation to wicked sense of sexual intonation, but as Christians we are not here to judge but pray for those who have had sexual addiction, it is like cannabis, to porn, to alcohol addiction yes I purchased this book out of curiosity but I could not finish it this world is going from bad to worse but there are people who are praying that the right people come in power in politics, Christianity, luminaty and Rome, including those who are powerful business men with good ethics to govern this world, Doctors, Scientists, religious leaders, this world needs you.

While there are people who pray in their homes for change there are those who have power to change the world for better this world does not just need sheep but it needs the GOOD WOLFS who help the sheep to make the world a better place.

Now back to the 6 E’s to a better you

1.Extraordinary, why Extraordinary because the ordinary is mundane and you have the potential to be extra-ordinary you yes you , you have gifts, talents or just hardworking once you move from the sphere of ordinary to extra-ordinary your life will be wonderful you will get noticed and opportunities will knock on your door be extra-ordinary

2.Enthusiastuc be enthusiastic about life don’t be boring spice up your life a bit, listen to good upbeat music, learn the guitar, learn a new subject do not get boring but enjoy life, learn to love life and be positive most of the time negativity and pessimism will get you no where.

3.Excellence, Be excellent be above average what ever your strengths or talents are develop them, make them stand out of the crowd be hardworking and be a man or woman of excellence, when I was younger I never felt beautiful or attractive one day I told my dad” I want to be beautiful “my father looked into my eyes and said “you are unique and you are very talented “it was then I accepted that I may never be a beauty queen or victoria secret model but I can sing, write and cook and be a blessing though my spelling and grammar is not great I am unique and talented and as the song we used to sing as children say “ If I were a butterfly, I thank you Lord for giving me wings, you gave me a heart and you gave me a smile you made me Jesus and you made me your child and I just thank you for making me, me,, I am 5 feet 2 but I am now a happy 5feet 2 inch lady.( who never goes out without heels or make up)

4,Entertaining, be cheerful and be happy there was once a pastor named A, who was preaching for a very long time each Sunday, then one day his wife whispered in his year and held out a big card that said KISS the pastor very quickly finished the service and sat down, his friend an elder of the church said “hey bro why did you finish and look said when your wife held out the card that said KISS “he said “dear elder if you only know what it means it means KEEP IT SHORT STUPID”

so keep your life, your work and your free time entertaining so there is not much time for boredom

5.Energetic, always be on your guard and alert and keep exercising, have a bright happy disposition, so people get attracted to you, if it is your cute smile or your strong arms or even your sense of humour be energetic, lethargy gets you no where be bright and happy like the song “all things bright and beautiful all creatures great and small all things wise and wonderful the lord God made them all.”

6.Engaging be attentive, hear people’s stories, help people be a blessing to people, be there when they need you and always remember people who have helped you and because of that you are able to help others never ever forget those who helped you be engaging above all be gratefulIMG_3006

Remember the 6 E’s

Lots of love and prayers

No Fear In Love

“A party without cake is just a meeting”

Julia Child

Dear Friends, Theologians, and munchkins lend me some of your time, today I have come to the conclusion that a piece of cake with a cuppa as they call it in the land down there I mean Australia, cake and cuppa go hand in hand, such as goodness and mercy, such as love and friendship, such as black and white.

My dearest friends, munchkins, this year I had one motive that is to conquer the art of baking, in India where I was born baking was not that popular but as you know spices, curries, breads such as nan, chapattis and dosai’s made from rice flour go a long way to many hundreds of years.

But now coming back to baking cakes I had a fear that my cakes may not be great and that fear worked on my baking but as a wonderful Christian friend and sister in Christ in Church had a class on baking cup cakes my fear seemed to have subsided and my daughter and I had great fun baking cup cakes I know they are not the best cup cakes but my daughter and I had fun making icing and sprinkles

What I learnt was we have to face our fears sometimes when we fear the worst the worst usually happens, but when we change fear to love and positive energies God steps in takes away our fear and changes bad circumstance to the best, why because we did not let fear govern our lives

My grandmother told me something the other day she said ”My father feared getting a bad name that he never enjoyed life” How true is that we fear what Mr and Mrs Jones next door will talk about, or fear our parents or even fear God that life can not be enjoyed as long as we are true to ourselves and true to GOD who has given us life, health and strength why have fear, even the bible says God has not given us a spirit of fear but of love power and a sound mind.

You do not need to walk on eggshells walk on the carpet put for your life, it may not be a red carpet but a simple rug but man what a rug if you have a wonderful hug from someone who loves you and is there for you, sometimes that someone may be your child, your spouse or even God just reading his word listening to music and talking to HIM can take away your fears, today my friends overcome fear or fear will overcome you.

Tell yourself I will not be afraid, my God is with me and there is no fear in love, perfect love takes away fear,

Let love rule your hearts, takeaway hate and fear and you will have love

Lots of love

How To Be A Blessing

Image

Hi there darlings, sweethearts, how are you all doing ? Today I want to talk about Blessing. What is a Blessing ? How can we be a Blessing ? Blessing my dear friends goes back in time to the very Beginning to the time of Creation, when  the Lord God created the world he said it was good and in saying it was good he Blessed the world with goodness, then the Lord God created man and woman and Blessed them. Because they were God’s handiwork and beautiful in  His sight.Then get ready for the sad music, yes man and woman brought a curse on themselves by disobeying Lord God Almighty by eating the fruit of knowledge and now man hard to work for his food and man did not walk with God anymore as in the days when he walked in obedience with our Creator Lord.

But there was still a communion between man and God. What I am trying to say is when we are obedient to the Lord there is a Blessing and with disobedience comes a curse.Now come a few rhetorical questions, How do we obey the Lord at all times ? Is it possible to be a perfect Christian? How does God judge disobedience in the 21st centaury ?

Dear ones there was only one ever perfect man and that was our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ and He lived a blameless life and suffered and died for us so that through His righteousness Our unrighteousness may be made pure, and we may be justified through His grace and love that he poured out for us on Calvary.You my dear friend are pure, may be you have addictions but through our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ when we repent and ask for forgiveness we are like pure white blankets the stain of sin is removed and Satan may remind you of past sin but our Lord has forgiven and forgotten it.

That by itself is the greatest Blessing God has given us the Blessing of justification. Now when the Lord God justifies us we are Blessed with the knowledge of knowing we are going to spend eternity with Our Lord Jesus Christ and “as we try and climb the steps of glory to glory we know that one day we will glorified and pure as Him” ( glory to glory part taken from Sunday morning message at church)

Now we can be a Blessing when we obey the word and the theme that runs all through the Bible like a scarlet thread of the Blood of Christ is LOVE and when we reach out in love not just for those to like us but for those who do not like us then we incur the Blessing of our Lord  and Saviour Jesus Christ. Jesus showed us true love and  He was Blessed by God the father, how much more should you and I be an ambassador of love to the fallen, broken, lonely an d those who hate us without cause, Dear ones let us love this love can only come through the word and prayer and let us reflect Christ and Be a Blessing in doing this we will be Blessed.

Love overcomes, hate, pride, prejudice, partiality and like a light reflects and radiates Blessings in a dark and fallen world.Let our prayer be Lord make me a channel of love . Be Blessed !!photo

Living Life With An Attitude Of Gratitude

ImageHi there darlings, sweethearts, munchkins, how are you all today? Today I feel blessed to know “ Because He lives, I can face tomorrow and Because He lives all fear is gone, Because I know He holds the future and life is worth a living Because He lives” ( words taken from the song Because He Lives) When our Lord Jesus died on the cross that was not the end, “He Rose Again” in Glory and Majesty and He governs the world and things of the world, He does not bring pain and disease the evil does that it says in the Bible” The evil one has come to steal, kill and destroy” But it also says in the Bible “ He has come to give us life and life more abundantly” not only that “ our Lord has come to destroy the works of the enemy”

 

The Bible is the most powerful Book in publication because it contains the very spirit and sayings of our Lord God, Are you afraid then pray? Are you sick read the word and pray, Do you feel lonely then pray, Are people mean to you then pray, Our Lord is just a prayer away, You may ask how do we pray, talk to God as you would talk to your best friend or family, He cares, He listens, He answers, He is alive, He is real.

 

I am Blessed to call Him “ Christ Jesus” my Saviour and Lord. He chose me even before I was born, He had a plan for my life even before I was conceived and He knows you and has a plan for your life just like he knew me. God has good plans for your life, you may feel you are going no where but during this time our master sculptor is taking the bad chips away with a chisel, taking away our anger, jealousies, gossiping etc and is working on the final product a beautiful sculpture fit for our King of Kings and Lord of Lords. It is not easy going through this process, it hurts, maybe the doors you wish for yourself has not opened, maybe you are going through a separation process with a loved one, may be life has not been going the way you envisioned it but remember the master sculpture sees the beautiful finished product while all you see are the chips and cracks but hang on there is hope, there is light at the end of the tunnel, you my friend are a beautiful sculpture that the Lord has been working on.

 

There are so many people who are lonely, sick, depressed, grieving for a loved one, having addictions be it alcohol, drugs, porn or sex but there is a way out, cry out to the Lord for help, change your dependence mentality and you will see a light at the end of a tunnel, prayer, determination and rehab will set you free.

 

Dear ones you maybe in a difficult process but there is hope, there is light, there are rainbows, there is a God and He is Alive and He is reaching out to you, working on you and caring for you. Let Him work His amazing plans for your life, do not worry about the broken pieces I know it is hard I have been there and I can empathise with you but one day when you have that warm cup of tea or get into the warm bath, or buy that new dress all you can whisper or shout out loud is Thank You Lord . Let us live this life with an attitude of gratitude.Image

Show Me Love

ImageLeave This

Leave this chanting and singing and telling of beads!
Whom dost thou worship in this lonely dark corner of a temple with doors all shut?
Open thine eyes and see thy God is not before thee!

He is there where the tiller is tilling the hard ground
and where the pathmaker is breaking stones.
He is with them in sun and in shower,
and his garment is covered with dust.
Put off thy holy mantle and even like him come down on the dusty soil!

Deliverance?
Where is this deliverance to be found?
Our master himself has joyfully taken upon him the bonds of creation;
he is bound with us all for ever.

Come out of thy meditations and leave aside thy flowers and incense!
What harm is there if thy clothes become tattered and stained?
Meet him and stand by him in toil and in sweat of thy brow.

Rabindranath Tagore

Dear Friends, this wonderful poem was written by our great author of India Sri Rabindranath Tagore, Let me ask you the readers a few questions, Does Our Lord, God live in a great castle ?? Is he so holy he lives in  cave like a hermit , unpolluted by the world ?? Is he so proud not to mix with people of lowly professions that the people of the world shunned. Was He the rich kid who never had to work for a living ?? Did He feel that he knew all things as a child and never discussed his thoughts ? Did he judge the adulterous and people with maligned morality ??

Dear ones you know that our Lord God Almighty came down to us not born in a castle but in a humble stable. He lived in our world his friends were not the posh Pharisees but fishermen, prostitutes, tax collectors. He spoke to the Samaritan women with five husbands a woman no Jew would have spoken to much less knowing about her maligned character. He did not judge the woman caught in adultery and did not let the people stone her because He the Lord of Lord’s had love and compassion in his heart. He touched a leper and healed him, while Pharisees would not even let a leper’s shadow touch them.

He worked for a living not as a proud Pharisee in a synagogue but as a humble carpenter. Yet he asserted his authority as Lord when it was his time to reach out to his world of Jerusalem and from His world the entire world was and is blessed. He brought back creation by  controversially spitting on mud and making  new eyes for a blind man. He also got angry and rebelled and zeal for his house consumed him as he made whips and threw out the people making his house into a market place, yes Jesus was a non-conformist and rebelled against the Pharisees.

He let a prostitute wet his feet her tears and wipe his feet with her hair and let me tell from that night on she was pure again that my friends was the beginning of grace that our Lord bestowed not only on her but the whole world.

That is not all our Lord God King Of Kings and Lord Of Lords died a humiliating death on a cross so you and I can be saved, He did not just come to our level he became a low caste or became equal to a thief  or someone the society disdains.

That is our Lord Jesus, if someone says show me love show them the cross for such love has never and can never and will never be repeated in History For what our Creator Lord  did us for no one can ever do for us.

So when you think of God, think of love that came down to our level for you and for me.

“(Come out of thy meditations and leave aside thy flowers and incense!
What harm is there if thy clothes become tattered and stained?
Meet him and stand by him in toil and in sweat of thy brow). “words in italics by author and poet Rabindranath Tagore.

Be Optimistic

Dear friends, munchkins, sweetypies, darlings, Did you have a nice weekend well I had a quiet weekend and am now a size 12 about 65ish weight and God has been so good to me this year. I thank God for what we have and am optimistic for a better future I know I can not be like those on the red carpet nor do I want to. I find pleasure in cooking a nice meal for my family. Date nights with my husband and cleaning wardrobes, washing dishes and wiping runny noses. I have settled for the domestic life as wife and mother.

My husband and daughter bring so much of joy into my life and my grand mother who is in her 80’s brings so much of wisdom and advice into my life. I have learnt so much from my grand mother as she was a principal of a large school has travelled the world preaching and teaching and she is my inspiration as a strong, independent, versatile, lady who has accomplished much in this world and I am proud to be Mrs Grace Sathyaraj’s grand-daughter. She taught me to bake, cook and be strong lady for my family a back bone to my husband. I love my grand  mother and I hope I touch people’s lives the way my  grand mother has, through her love and personality and her strong unwavering faith in God.

I hope I can be a strong and decisive person, darlings at times I am fickle minded but at those times I go close the door and ask God to give me wisdom to make the right choice and He does. Make God the head of your life in Big decisions as well as the little decisions as what shall I cook today and watch God enrich and fulfil your life.

Dear ones this coming New year be Optimistic for a better and brighter future. Learn to love your neighbour now ladies if your neighbour is tall, dark and handsome it is easy to love and men if your neighbour is a blonde bombshell it is easy to love :). But I am talking about old age homes, elderly relatives many of them are neglected it may even be your own family members give them a call tell them you love them one word of love can take away many years of hate reach out in love and God will Bless you.

God loves you and has a wonderful plan for your life. Jesus is a God of love and if bad things has happened or people have bullied you forgive them they are hurting inside. Do not be a bully back reach out in love and may God make you an inspiration to people through love. Be a Santa Clouse not a Scrouge learn to give and learn to receive. May this  Christmas season fill your hearts with love, joy and peace.

Seasons Greetings
