Wings of Protection

“For neither herb nor poultice cured them, but it was your word, O Lord that heals all people”
-Wisdom 16:12

Our life changed in a blink of an eye when we were at a birthday party and our little baby got her first seizure. We called 911 and we were taken to the ER. We were sent home with a diagnosis of syncope (fainting) or an absence seizure. We were unaware that this trip to the hospital was going to be a regular affair for us in the coming months.

God is my Refuge

My God is my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield and the horn of my salvation. He is my stronghold, my refuge and my Savior— from violent threats you save us.
~ 2 Samuel 22:3

It was the 9th of February, 2019. My wife Sharel, 4year old daughter Andrea, 3month old son Aiden and I set out to Mangalore at dawn.

Was Lost but now Found

Before joining CFCI I didn’t really know how to pray. I wanted to, but I didn’t have anyone to guide me. I used to treat God more like a shopkeeper. I would only turn to him to ask for favours, and even if I would pray a little, I felt I was doing God a favour.

While I was in Goa, I was shy to pray in front of family or anyone else. Even when I would go for retreats I would never be able to close my eyes, but I would laugh at the others praying. If anything would go wrong in my life, I would end up blaming God for it and felt it was useless to pray. Continue reading
