Sabudana Vada, a Low Calorie Version



Today is a remarkable day marked in my calendar. A year ago, this very same day , God proved to us again that HE has plans only to prosper us 🙂 Those were  our very early days of wedding. Like any other newly wedded couple after a small span of courtship, we  had a good fight to get into an understanding. Our profession was our biggest challenge! Shifts, overtimes, hectic weekends. uff those days were depressing.
Days of his night shifts bought frustration in me. Days of no-words, no-gestures left me lonely. Days of overtime works built a burden in me. Days rolled by And I was unhappy about myself for cribbing about him that, He is not speaking my love language. And of course Quality time is my love language. Gradually I pushed him into my stress box.
Right then, God spoke to me through the message “Being Powerful” and the orator was talking about Leech Love. That truth Hit on my face radically ! Imagine Leech writing a love letter . It would say I Love you so much that I could not live without you. In simple words It says You are My Need I want You because I need to Love . The Leach would say, Hey Baby “ I will always be with you I Will never leave you ,nor forsake ……. In the end it would Carry a Signature “With Love”(Ah there is the Lie) . I then realized, I was living like a leech coated in chocolate. God spoke with me to rest In Him and receive His Love and Supple.

When you learn to receive supply from God, you would be a supplier not a consumer.

Just as I started being a supplier in the relationship, God spoke through a friend in church about the change in his workplace &  job. A week later he got a call from the company where I working, a miracle interview for 5 mins,and He joined with me at my workplace in few days and Today we are completing a year’s togetherness at workplace 🙂 A year of fun, joy, quality time !! Daddy God proved again and I speak the same into your life!

Every little thing that matters to you, matters to ME.
