His hands and mine

Anesthesia is a very 'hands-on' department. It requires a lot of skill to advance needles (in various places!) with just the right amount of pressure when administering anesthetic drugs prior to surgery.  Steady hands. Nimble fingers.  It may be easy to assume that anesthesiologists hold a lot of power in their hands when we do things quickly. It may be easier to think that a simple needle or catheter insertion has nothing to do with God or His hands either. I have always wanted to "paint" myself a reminder of the fact that - it is always His power that works through me.  Was. Is. And will be.  For as long as He has allowed it.  Underneath are His everlasting arms, keeping me steady.  "Praise the Lord, who is my rock. He trains my hands for war and gives my fingers skill for battle." Psalm 144:1

For God so loved the world...

  John 3:16 is one of the most memorized verses in the Bible.. "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son,  that whoever believes in Him, should not perish but have everlasting life." (NKJV) Let us thank God for His love, revealed through His Son - Jesus Christ with a "wider" perspective this Christmas.

Battling Depression..

We always tend to trust and believe in things that we can see right? "Seeing is believing" What if I told you that the one Person who understands everything you are going through is Someone you cannot really see?  The familiarity with this Person is so profound - the depth with which He understands us is so great. He knows our strengths and weaknesses. He sees us through and through. He has also understood suffering on an intense, personal level like no other. Jesus was a Man of Sorrows. Excruciating. Overwhelming. Crushing sorrow.  He is ready to comfort you and be with you during your times of absolute sorrow. He meets us at our "rock bottom" and gives us grace to see it through. He doesn't ask you to "figure it out" on your own. His presence is silent but felt nevertheless - even in the blazing fiery trials that we go through. Depression can chase us away from God. It can make us run in the opposite direction, hide in a corner to nurse our wounds or

Tell Your Heart to Beat Again...

  I dare you to decipher what this means! Take your time... :P (I did hear a couple of versions already, so I am bracing myself for more..) For those of you who are wondering, "What in the world was she thinking??"…   Read on..   As mentioned in my profile, I enjoy drawing pictures from song lyrics, Bible verses, Quotes from books etc.. This particular Abstract Art was inspired by a combination of the first two mentioned above and a little bit of my medical knowledge .. :)   The Hippocampus is where all our memories are stored..   (FUN FACT #1)   Take a walk down memory lane today and you will see that you have scars from wounds both old and new… Wrong choices, Guilty pleasures, falling for temptations, repetitive sins.. Secret sins that stain scarlet have scarred us all ..  Wounds like these may or may not heal over time.. If there's a chance at complete healing it would be because of a Savior who was wounded for us.   (1 Peter 2:24; Isaiah 53:5)
