Counting my blessings

 (From previous issue)

A good habit: One of the habits I have managed to develop is the habit of writing and reading books. This I consider the best habit I have acquired and this has turned out to be my greatest blessing! The teachings, advices, wisdom, knowledge, truths, principles, observations, expertise and facts in the books have given me the solutions to meet my challenges along the way. I have learned a lot from those booksI read and I am indebted to all the authors whose works had helped but whose names I now cannot recall.

An education: Through the hard work and sacrifices my parentsand my elder siblings had provided me an education which serves me well, I am what I am today; it is all due to the education that was given me through the blood, sweats and tears of my parents and elder siblings until my graduations. I am also very grateful to those individuals, churches, organizations and institutions that provided me moral, spiritual material and financial support in pursue of my higher research studies. I am not crazy after degrees but have learned and inspired from my able teachers that having acquired numerous educational degrees also helps sometimes in your life so I count this as a significant blessings to be able to study from various schools, colleges and universities in here and abroad.

Wonderful ministry: I am blessed with ministry that I enjoyed working in. I have served in different capacity such as, Youth Director, Educational Missionary, Project Manager, Evangelist, Pioneer Missionary, President of LBCAand a Pastor. It provided security, challenges and personal growth for me. For the family it provided financial security where all my financial obligations could be taken care of and this gave us plenty of emotional stability and peace of mind. Above all I have been given the greatest ministry in all the world, that of ministering to people and reconciling them to the Lord and Majesty of the universe, God Himself. For this reason, I am fully committed to the great ministry He has given me.As a minister, I understood that I have been given the greatest privilege and responsibility in all the world: called to be a minister of the living God, called by the Sovereign Lord and Majesty of the universe. 

Social Activities: I am being privileged to be able to join in many social organizations such as Good Shepherd Ministry, Green Revolution, Village Development, Global Travelers Peace Mission, World Vision of India and Red Cross. In Red Cross I have become Life Member and have given me the opportunity to represent in many countries as Volunteer and did serve to the capacity of State Managing Committee Member for decade and General Secretary for Nagaland State and Arunachal Pradesh.

Guiding Angels: Throughout my life I always have ‘guiding angels’ watching over me. When young, at the time when my father was struggling with the burdens and responsibilities of a big family thrust upon his shoulders, there came a benefactor who provided help to my father thus ironing out the hardships we were facing then. Many ‘angels’ appeared to help me through my growing years and in my adult life. These ‘angels’ guided and helped me along the way with advices, insights; some throwing challenges to make me grow. Some appeared in person but some came through as authors of books. The benefits derived from these ‘angels’ are immeasurable.

Decent peers: Peers have undisputed sway over us when we are young; peer pressure is hard to shake. I was lucky to have decent peers when I was young. They had decent habits and good values which kept them on the straight path. It is to their credit they did not lead me astray. Many young lives have been ruined by peers who had led them astray. I am one among hundreds who averted to be fallen into evil-traps.

I write this not to get your solicit, your respect or to impress you. I do this to ‘count my blessings’ and to remind myself to give thanks to God each day! Now that I have done this I feel satisfied, happy and contented.
