My prayers !!!

There are people whose suffering makes them take their mind off other things in life; so focused are they on their misery that they fail to notice their simple blessings. My prayer for such people is May they not ignore the happiness that still exists. May they see the rainbow at the end of the road. May they find strength to carry on and never give up. May they never lose hope.

Have faith !!!

Healing does not happen overnight. It’s a slow process, every day you feel better than the day before. May you be blessed with patience and may God fill your heart with hope. ~Latika Teotia

Sow love !!! Sow compassion !!!

“Make a difference in the lives of others by reaching out and healing them with your love. Uplift ,encourage and sow the seed of hope in broken hearts. God will bless you a hundred-fold !!!”~ Latika Teotia

 

Never lose faith, always repose your trust in God !!!

Never lose faith in God. Remember that He is always there by our side watching over us and steering us in the right direction. We are continuously evolving into better human beings and growing spiritually. It is during this process of evolution that we become confused, restless, depressed and even hostile because we are not aware of this change in us. We may even feel that God has forsaken us- which couldn’t be farther from the truth, because He will never leave you, no matter how difficult the times may be. It is this ignorance that is the cause of all our miseries and confusions; the realization comes only once we share our worries with someone knowledgeable who tells us about God and His mysterious ways of working. So never lose faith, always repose your trust in God. ~Latika Teotia

Forgiveness cleanses the soul !!!

Forgiveness cleanses the soul. Just because some people are unkind, indifferent and even cruel doesn’t mean that you have to retaliate. A better way to live peacefully is to constantly forgive everyone and pray for them. There’s nothing more beautiful and purer than praying for others. God gave this beautiful life to love and spread hope. ~Latika Teotia

RAIN TO RAINBOW !!!

I’ve found that grief is not permanent and pain never lasts.There is always light at the end of a dark tunnel-as surely as day follows a dark night. I wrote this poem in a moment of despair. When I felt aggrieved and totally drained out. I struggled with my broken heart and found the strength to see beyond that grief. These sad moments had also taught me an invaluable lesson and brought me even more close to God.

Rain to Rainbow

I was lonely and I was in pain,
I sat quietly and watched the rain.
With each single drop, my pain did decrease,
I waited with hope for it to cease.

I picked up the broken pieces of my heart,
Even grief, though brief, had played a part.
Lo behold I spotted a rainbow at the end,
In my life, mercifully, it was only a bend.

Thank you, O Lord, for this beautiful life,
And the invaluable lessons I learnt from this strife.
In the absence of pain, grief, problems and strife,
We forget God’s wonderful gift of life.

ON THE WINGS OF JOY !!!

 I was sitting at my study table and surrounded by clutter of papers, pens, laptop and cell phones when suddenly a house sparrow came and sat on the ledge of the closed glass window of my air conditioned room. Human beings have long since banished this poor winged creature from their household by closing their doors and windows. It is as if we have blocked joy and liveliness from our lives. Yet I found this tiny winged creature had no anxiety and no fear. It was chirpy and full of life as if defying this banishment. She was lively and spirited. If she could fly on the wings of joy, why couldn’t I ???

ON THE WINGS OF JOY !!!

On The Wings of Joy I shall soar
And forget the problems of yore.
On The Wings of Joy I shall fly,
I shall not let life just pass me by.
On The Wings of Joy I shall sail,
Of hope I shall leave a visible trail.

On The Wings of Joy I shall glide,
From anxiety to liveliness I will slide.
On The Wings of Joy I shall ride,
Life is fun with nothing to hide.
On The Wings of Joy I shall flutter,
From my life I will get rid of all the clutter.

Yes, on The Wings of Joy I shall fly, fly and fly,
And create a world full of hope, love and joy.
On The Wings of Joy I shall fly
On The Wings of Joy I shall fly, fly, fly…
