New Year New You

This new year let it begin with prayer, joy and laughter

Everything you do for family, friend, and comrade let it matter

Let us deal wisely with business, money and matrimony

Let us learn to listen more and talk less

With every word we say have a harness

Let us build others up

Not tear them down with our words

Let us be free to encourage, love, and smile

Let us pray over our introspection and inner turmoil

If one is happy

Be happy for them

Let us undo envy, greed and misdeed

Let love be our creed

Learn to give to those in need

Remember there are those who have nothing

This year with love and research help one hungry mouth to feed

This will bless you indeed

Let the truth of the bible be your light

Even when you are alone

Remember He suffered so you can get salvation

This Lord Jesus is your justification

So dear ones let us from sin take a vacation

Let Jesus be the reason this year and season

Let his word be your meditation

Let this new year begin with prayer, joy and laughter

It is love that matters

Happy New Yearunnamed

A poem on Love

Alone she sat and wept

Looking out the window

Why me, why me she screamed

This was not the life she dreamed

Oh there is hope

Your future has scope

Baby you can cope

Love is better than dope

She met him briefly

But his eyes, his body piercing her soul,

She knew He was somebody

Somebody too great

To like someone like her

Was this some cosmic joke called fate ?

They didn’t even date

Oh there is hope

Your future has scope

Baby you can cope

Love is better than dope

She had fallen, fallen , fallen in love

This majestic gorgeous God from up above

They say a sign of God is a dove

Like an instrument of love

She had fallen in love with a star from up above

can a dove be a sign of love

can a star shine so brightly

As she looks up at the sky

Seeing his green grey eyes

As the moon under the clouds hides

She knew she had to run

She may never be a nun

But his love conquered her soul, her being her heart

There is hope

Your future has scope

Baby you can cope

Love is better than dope

She got out of the train

Her life could have gone down the drain

But as she looked up

His hands hugged her tight

His love she will no longer fight

Now the future has a brilliant light

Love is better than dope

She looked into his eyes and said

Love is better than dope

Dope, dope, dope love is better than dope

A little Bit About India and My Testimony

Hi namasthe my name is Sangeetha Alexander wife of Mark Alexander who came to Northern Ireland to study at the Belfast Bible College 10 years back. As you can see I am from India which has a population of 1.1 billion, there are 29 states and 22 official languages and also 1650 other languages and dialects.

Christianity was brought to India by ST Thomas the disciple also known as doubting Thomas he preached the gospel in southern part of India. Christians have lived in Kerala for almost 2 thousand years.

Catholic and protestant missionaries brought Christianity to India almost 200 years ago as a result the percentage of Christians is 2.5 per cent which is about 25 million people however the unofficial figures is 5 per cent or 50 million praise God for that.

Being a Christian is not a problem in the 4 southern states as long as you do not take part in evangelism how ever missionaries, evangelists and pastors in small towns and villages face a lot of precaution. My father’s grand parents were Hindu converts and were brought to the lord through the work of missionaries. My mother’s grandparents were brought to the lord by CMS missionaries and Amy charmihcal an northern Irish missionary was also involved in bring people to Christ in the same area of my mothers grandparents.

The church is growing in spite of the persecution especially the assembly of God churches, the largest city church is in Chennai with 50000 people and the second largest church is in Bangalore with 20,000 members

The church my father served in Bangalore had 1500 members every Sunday. Many churches support missionaries in North India as most Christians are from southern India, churches are involved in mission work either by sending missionaries or supporting mission work one church in our city in Bangalore supports 98 missionaries and want to make this figure 100 next year. people have learnt to give sacrificially to missions and evangelism. Being a Christian is not easy in north and east India as the Hindu political parties called BJP have started programmes to reconvert Christians to Hinduism and the using of threats and violence is common.

My great grandfather came from a family of Hindu priests however my great grand father wanted to join the army so he came to Bangalore which is a big city, he was also searching for the true God as the Hindu gods did not give him the peace he desired in his heart. He went to the mosque but Islam did not fill the void in his heart. finally he met the missionaries of the London mission society was convinced that Jesus was the true lord and saviour and became a Christian.

My great grand father and my great grandma reached out to the Hindu family members with the gospel.

A few years back my grandmother and her brother estimated about 200 family members became active Christians because of the influence of my great grand parents..

I accepted Jesus as my saviour at 10 years of age, I always wanted to serve the Lord, There have been failures, difficult times and also happy times in my life but the Lord has never failed me nor forsaken me, there have been times I cried out to the lord where are you and sought the lord and He answered me with his peace in my heart knowing that he was and is within me, I am now going to conclude with the song the potters hand, as this song is close to my heart sometimes the lord melts moulds us breaks us and then leaves on a self till his appointed time and then fills us with his glory, let us recommit our lives to the lord as we read the words of the potters hand

“The Potter’s Hand”

Beautiful Lord, Wonderful Saviour

I know for sure, all of my days are held in your hands, crafted

into your perfect plan

You gently call me into your presence guiding me by Your Holy Spirit

Teach me dear Lord to live all of my life through Your eyes

I’m captured by Your holy calling

Set me apart, I know you’re drawing me to yourself

Lead me Lord I pray

Take me, Mold me, use me, fill me

I give my life to the Potter’s hand

Call me, guide me, lead me, walk beside me

I give my life to the Potter’s hand

You gently call me into your presence guiding me by your Holy Spirit

Teach me dear Lord to live all of my life through your eyes

I’m captured by your Holy calling

set me apart, I know your drawing me to yourself

lead me Lord I pray

Take me, Mold me, use me, fill me

I give my life to the Potter’s hand

Call me, guide me, lead me, walk beside me

I give my life to the potters hand

The Key Word Is Justification

When HE came to earth,

The virgin Mary gave birth

There was no party, laughter or mirth

But the King lay down His life,

To be born in a manger

Being called a stranger

In his family and hometown he was not accepted,

The Pharisees they respected,

He stood out and was called ordinary

But this great awesome Christ was extraordinary in the eyes of God

Because He was and is the Son Of God

He worked in His Father’s business in carpentry

But His calling was to save the world

From racism, jealousy and bigotry

Some called Him a clown

And the Pharisees wanted Him to drown

To keep His head down

I am sure He wondered why He was even born

But at His death which was more fascinating than His birth

The curtain in the holy of holies was torn

That was why through Justification our lives now have a transformation

This is the story of the exodus of redemption

This is no imagination

There will come a time of migration

To the New City

Sans racism, sans jealousies, sans bigotry, sans comparisons, sans competition

But filled with love from up above

Is that a dove

Yes it is time for peace all over the world

From the European Union to the United Nation Organisation

One Lord, One World United By Love

There are people debating cynicism

Worried about Gnosticism,

But simple child like faith will change the nations

For the city of the Lord

It is real,

It is written in eschatology

This is not some funny philosophy

When one sees it it is like walking in a life so magnificently surreal

It is like going through a wall

Made for both great and small of every race, language and creed

With no worry for money or greed,

He meets every need,

The golden gates are awaiting

Lord this eschatology is finished

Past, present and future are one

Lord Christ Is The Son

Little children playing, singing, laughing ,

ruling ,

This is the New World ruled and governed by children

With wise men as judges yet no punishment for evil in the past

Because this world is made for Love, by Love, with LOVE

AmenPhoto on 30-08-2015 at 16.11 (1)

The Funny Bear Who Loved Honey

UnknownFunny Bear Who Loved Honey

There once was a funny bear who had no money all he wished for was a bucket of honey

One bright day when the weather was fine and sunny

He had a grumbling in his tummy

He wanted that bucket of honey from the store but funny bear was broke and had no moneyimages

So he sat on a log of wood and as he drifted to sleep

He heard a screech and there a beautiful parrot, stood with a carrot

So funny bear said “parrot oh parrot you have carrot but I am broke and sore and want that bucket of honey from the store”

Haughty parrot replied oh my wings are tired I travelled a lot, but I am sorry I have no money for your honey pot,

Funny bear went for a walk looking for someone to talk

What he saw gave him a shock

There was a carnival in the forest and there was a stage for anyone who wanted to talk or sing or dance

Funny bear looked like he was in a trance gave his name this was his time for fame and the winner got money if he was entertaining and funny

The weather was bright and sunny

Funny bear took a deep breath and people were looking at him with curiosity

Funny bear thought to himself this is not a time to worry, he had to have that bucket with honey

His friends always said he was funny, the curtain arose funny bear took the mike and started telling funny tales and the laughter came in bales there were more tales and more laughter

This funny bear was now a comedian master

When the time finished and the curtain close they put a bill in his hand and his reaction froze he was no more funny broke and sore he won the score he went to the store and had his pot of honey he now had money for many pots of honey

The next day he sat on the green grass eating his honey and counting his money he said to his friend the haughty parrot you have a carrot but I am funny and that I will never regretimages-1

The end

The Day The Lord Walked Into My Life

The day He walked into my life

There is a Lord

Who watches over all

There is a Lord who catches you when you fall

There is a Lord who tells you

You are amazing even when you feel very hurt and small

There is a Lord who prays for you when Him you call

There is a Lord who took you from fire and ashes and turned you around like a great phoenix who rose into glory from fire

This is not satire

There is a Lord who took your hand from the mire

There is a Lord who blessed you

When others cursed you

There is a Lord who cared for you and protected you

And made you, you

Like a phoenix when all thought you were in the dust and ashes

He the Lord dusted the ashes off

And made you a woman

Like giving you beauty for ashes

Like lighting a cigarette with matches

He loved you

He made you

You are unique

You are you

People like you are few

Lord take away the chains

As the plants take in the rain

Your blessings from me never refrain

You took me from the drain

One day I will travel in the air train

When things get difficult

Smile at the warmth of the sun

Feel him holding you

Telling you

He cares

Let us worship the Lord

Not in a ritualistic shroud

But in faith and trust and simplicity

Hold his hand

He understands

Lord for you I stand
