About this blog

I believe Christians out of all other faith should have minimum separation between secular and sacred life. After all we call Christianity, our world view. Some one said, “Bare theology is useless, unless we know how to apply it” and I can’t agree more. I am a firm believer of Bible to be an inspired, infallible, inerrant, word of God, but what good it is if I can’t apply it to my life now and here. So, in this blog I will discuss my secular experiences in biblical view, the right, wrong, lies, and all. Continue to read and engage, God bless.

But, It is Mine.

But, It is Mine.

She was holding tight this old, torn, and battered comforter so close. Comforter bought at least 20 years back and passed on to me from my best friend. Somehow this caught her attention few years back and ever since, she carries it everywhere, up and down, on the bed and the couch. Wherever she is, you may find this old comforter laying next. Occasionally, she runs to it and holds tight.   I asked, “Baby, can mommy buy you a new comforter? This is sooooooo old.”   She immedia

Christ Is Our Competence.

Christ Is Our Competence.

“Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think of anything as being from ourselves, but our sufficiency is from God, who also made us sufficient as ministers of the new covenant,” (2 Corinthians 3:5-6).   In many job-interviews I had attended, there is one question that is always asked, “What makes you the right fit for this position?” Have we ever thought, what makes us competent to be “who we are?” in a combined role of our “SELF” as a person. This “Ahila” that I am! I could go on

Do Not Spiritualize Marriage (1): It Takes Away it's Real Beauty.

Do Not Spiritualize Marriage (1): It Takes Away it's Real Beauty.

Isn’t it so humanly to make things little bit better than to stop and enjoy the real beauty of it at hand? I am sure spiritualizing marriage mostly is NOT an ill intend act but an ignorant effort to make it little bit more glorious than understanding how beautiful it is, as it is.   Spiritualizing marriage takes away its real beauty and significance. Now and here, in this side of eternity, marriage holds lots of significance. The effects of marriage have eternal consequences despite ma

They really Do Stand, by Their Own Faith.

They really Do Stand, by Their Own Faith.

“But that does not mean we want to dominate you by telling you how to put your faith into practice. We want to work together with you so you will be full of joy, for it is by your own faith that you stand firm.” (2 Corinthians 1:24)   After being a Christian for more than two decades, I have come across many mentors and mentees. If we are not careful in this role as mentors, we could be infected with a mentor’s complex. How easy and unintentional, yet malevolent, we quickly assume domi

Her Numbers, My Quest

Her Numbers, My Quest

My daughter and I have very brief but many of these intimate talks, she sits on my lap and probe me with questions, some I eloquently answer, others I take a deep breath and come up with the closed to acceptable answer. We both enjoy these moments so much.   During one of those intimate talks, my kindergartner asked me, “Mom, what is the biggest number ever?”   I responded without much thought, “Quadrillion, may be Googleplex, Baby, there is something called “infinite” that i
On The Valley of Decision.

On The Valley of Decision.

Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision! For the day of the Lord is near in the valley of decision. (Joel 3:14).   Life is a continuation of choices and decisions, yet most of us dread making decisions because,  we don’t not know ALL the details, we are uncertain of future outcomes, and we are comforted by the known present.    But there in the valley of Jehoshaphat, we will all be audience to THE GREAT DECISION that will be made. Made by the King

Joel’s Longing is Our Reality.

Joel’s Longing is Our Reality.

"And it shall come to pass That whoever calls on the name of the Lord Shall be saved. For in Mount Zion and in Jerusalem there shall be deliverance, As the Lord has said, Among the remnant whom the Lord calls" (Joel 2:32, NKJV.)   The Jewish audience of this prophecy would have contemplated, “how easy it would be to just call upon the Name of The Lord, instead of keeping up with 613 some commandments.”   The far standing gentile audience would have th

Do Not Spiritualize the Marriage. - Introduction

Do Not Spiritualize the Marriage. - Introduction

Every time, I teach my nursing students about STI, they rumble in their own young adult way, “Celibacy…. Celibacy.” With A smile I always respond, “It’s a great call, there are many I admire who are called to that, but I am not cut out for that.” I suggest, “Married, monogamy.” And they laugh, some with a painful, desperate, and disappointed laughs. Let me start by saying this, personally, I won’t be myself without my marriage, my husband, this dreamlike beautiful yet annoyingly painful (at time

The Locusts in and of Itself, Neither Good nor Bad!

The Locusts in and of Itself, Neither Good nor Bad!

“So, I will restore to you the years that the swarming [k]locust has eaten, The crawling locust, The consuming locust, And the chewing locust, My great army which I sent among you.” (Joel 2:25)                                              I have heard this verse quoted many times in personal testimonies, rightfully most of the times. The immense beauty of our Lord’s unfailing love is candidly expressed here. Yet, I for once read the last sentence of this verse with

Star Trek, Cultural Connection, and Biblical Truth

Started watching star trek – the next generation, in the past few months. I really enjoy it for what it is, sci-fi series with most use of artistic license. The motive for this almost 40 years old female to watch star trek is pure curiosity, curiosity of what made this series to run for 5 decades successfully with that many episodes, that many books and novels featuring it. I am intrigued by this kind of influential media and its relevance in cultural connections.   After almost watchi
