Oh Joseph!

Genesis 40:14"Only keep me in mind when it goes well with you, and please do me a kindness by mentioning me to Pharaoh and get me out of this house.”

I guess the worse attacks come while you are on the verge of reaching your miracle, deliverance, healing and blessing.  I shiver as I write this portion, because 11 years of solitary confinement inside a prison would make anyone go bonkers, but if Joseph was able to explain the dreams to the baker and cupbearer with poise and precision, then surely God had not left the prison where Joseph was lodged even for a sec; nevertheless, after 11 years Joseph gets nervous and unstable.  Do you feel that way today?

On that particular day(like many of us) Joseph felt he was forgotten and there were none to bail him out, Joseph failed to understand that the very gift of interpreting dreams had come from God.  When our spiritual sight gets blurred then we fail to see God in the room with us!  Anybody listening?  Actually God was preparing Joseph for an incredible and jaw-dropping position inside the palace (not outside in the Egyptian field) that needed molding in isolation.


In the year 2009 after we relocated to Hyderabad, I had no clue what I was supposed to do,  I was faithfully doing the little things that God brought my way.  In the year 2011, we forayed into the education arena and started the 100 percent free for the poor school, Abide School in Hyderabad with 7 kids who belong to the rag pickers family ( you can click HERE for that pic) I used to cook food for them and leave home by 6.30 am in the morning because the parents would leave them at School that early since they go for their duty.  Well, there were days I felt forgotten, forlorn and forsaken because this kind of job was no fun but tedious.  I remember when the progress of the  school was slow, I felt unsteady and I remember a day when I called a secular institution and requested them if they could send some children.  Nothing happened.  In the year 2012, children trickled in and then it bloomed into a full blown Middle school with Telangana Government recognition.

God has got you in His mind.
