A Gift

Sharmishtha Basu is a very dear friend, a valued fellow blogger and an extremely accomplished poet and artist. It was extremely nice of her to share one of her lovely works specially for my site. I have always enjoyed visiting her blogs and looking at the marvelous images she creates using words and the paint brush. I have requested Sharmishtha to be a part of my Showcasing My Friends series and she has most kindly agreed. I am quite excited about that interview with her and hope to post it very soon. Meanwhile, the following work of her in my opinion speaks volumes about the creative acumen and the talent she is.

Dear Sharmishtha, here is a very big “thank you” from your friend in Delhi!

  1. MY MORNDAY ,,HI TOO MY FRIENDS BE BLESSET IN THE LORD,,,,SIS DOT…………………………………….“What a glorious Lord! He who daily bears our burdens also gives us our salvation” Psalm 68:19

    Did it ever occur to you that you are disobeying God when you carry your own burdens, when you are worried, frustrated and confused over circumstances? That is exactly what God’s Word says.

    In 1 Peter 5:7, God gives a specific command to His children, “Cast…all your cares upon Him; for He careth for you“. Not to cast all of one’s cares upon the Lord is to disobey Him and to deny oneself that supernatural walk with God among men.

    Is it not logical to believe that He who loved us so much that He was willing to give His only begotten Son would also be faithful to keep His promise to bear our burdens daily?

    As the psalmist so aptly states, the Lord bears our burdens on a daily basis for the believer, the day will never come when God fails to carry our load, to strengthen us, to impart power to us through His indwelling Holy Spirit – if we but ask.

    Marvel of marvels, the psalmist points out, our heavenly Father not only is our great burden-bearer; He is also the very one who gives us our salvation and the assurance of eternal life. How could anyone ask for more!

    With the sure knowledge that our sins are forgiven (salvation) and the assurance that He knows all about every burden we face – more important, He bears them for us – our lives should reflect honor and glory to Him by the way in which we share His blessings and the message of His great love with others.

    Provision for the supernatural life is promised in the Old Testament as well as the New, as evidenced by this glorious promise in the Psalms
