Not crushed

2 Corinthians 4:8”….we are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not despairing..”

The best way I reiterate a point is with my own story, now you don’t get a story without experience, my past journey is my Resource. Your pain turns to gain, never feel sorry for yourself. Hurray!  All the plethora of experiences of Apostle Paul, the  beatings, imprisonment have all turned into Epistles written by Apostle Paul in the Bible that we still read and get enriched, empowered and encouraged.  Anybody listening to me?

During my teens, I did not have proper meals, proper clothes or a decent place to stay, those were the worst days that I could remember of.  When I scored very low marks in class eight, my school principal called for my mom ( my dad was sick) and my mom told our exact situation and poverty to the principal, she was very touched and started taking care of all my needs.  Until I finished my inter, all my needs were taken care of by my principal, incidentally I studied in a very good, reputed school in Chennai.   I remember my parents selling household items to buy me shoes; however, these are things that has now stirred me to buy shoes for our Abide School students and also run a free school for the poor.

Whatever is your situation today, don’t despair, don’t allow the enemy to whisper in your ears that God has forgotten you, NEVER, you are the apple of His eyes and He has best things stored for you.  Are you listening?  Give your best shot of what you are doing at  present, in whatever capacity you are,  no matter what, be faithful, truthful and loyal.  God is watching you and He would  lift up your head! God bless you!
