But when you pray, go into your room and shut the door and pray to your Father who is in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you. Matthew 14:23

Times of isolation is not for mourning and weeping but to seek God and His will, sometimes He has to forcefully  tear us apart from crowd and bring us alone to be with Him.  It can be in the form of sickness, failure or loss of job; however, this is not to destroy you but to mold you.  Say Amen.

I started my writing work, after I resigned from my work with a multinational bank and joined the Lord’s full-time ministry. I did not plan to become a writer, because I started my walk with the Lord as a preacher. After giving up a career spread over a period of two decades, I took to writing because of the space available in my life. It takes courage to break away from a structured atmosphere, nothing but a burning passion for my Lord took me from the glossy corridors of the posh multinational bank, to step into the grimy muddy highways of Chennai and villages of Tamil Nadu; but I have no regrets and I am glad I had the courage to do it. Writing has given me a lot of confidence. Let me tell you, as much as you crave to talk to Him, He wants to talk to you too!  Are you ready?

“How can my character grow through the challenges I’m facing? The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.” -Martin Luther King, Jr.

How I wish to knew more of what Joseph did 13 years inside the prison! Psalm 105:17- 19 says, ”He sent a man before them --- Joseph --- who was sold as a slave. They hurt his feet with fetters, He was laid in irons. Until the time that his word came to pass, The word of the LORD tested him.” How did Joseph endure the testing time? It would have been great and awesome, if we had more insight to the times that he was in prison! Such precious details would be a healing balm for people who are going through similar ‘prison’ situations! With an aching heart I write this! However, explicit details of Joseph spending 13 years in prison and Daniel spending one whole night in the lion’s den, are not given because God wants us to see it through our spiritual eyes. We are able to see the glory of God through our spiritual eyes. I like the words of David: “Open my eyes,
that I may see wondrous things from Your law.” (Psalm 119:18) Yes, an ‘opened eye’ will perceive the spiritual truths! It is not how much of factual details you read, but how much you understand and see with your spiritual eyes, that is very important.
