God always answers

God is everywhere and in everyone but when I need to crib, I can't crib to just everyone or anyone. 

So, I sat, making a very solemn, fed-up-with-you-god face and sat down to pray in a cribbing mode. 

I told Gd about all my problems, or rather my version of it, and gave him an ultimatum - listen and do something abt it, or at least, tell me something.

Just after my prayer, I had the feeling that the message will reach me. It usually does after I've cribbed and whined:). God has never let me down though He doesn't mind if I try some of my melodramatic dialogues on Him:)

Immediately after the prayer, I went to watch TV.

Amitabh Bachchan was on TV, giving an interview to a Malayalam channel. 

He said, "Whenever I become depressed that things don't go my way, I remember my father's words. He said that when things go your way, good. When things don't go the way I want it to, very very good. Why's that? Because then you can be sure it is God who's made that decision for you and His decisions are always better for you than your own."

The fact that I saw this right after my prayer reinforces my belief that God always answers, provided you are ready to listen.

So true!

There have been times when I had wanted to do something, but something didn't work the way it should have for me to be able to do the thing I wanted to. And I always took it as a signal that it wasn't the right thing for me, and trust me, with time I realized it truly wasn't. I can't define God in terms of any particular form, but I truly believe there is some higher power who truly cares.

(Btw, I found we share the 'Sathya Sai Girls' group!)

Very true indeed, especially the last line.

Thanks for stopping by my blog, yes trying to get back to the hang of things again, feels like starting over but thats part of the fun I guess.

I know it's true!
But for this thing, I dont wanna believe this.... I had planned for a late night show with hubby for No One Killed Jessica (tonight) and just few minutes ago, we got an invite for a dinner!!
So am in a very cribbing and whining mood... but should I take this a decision from the God!!??

and this public figure was Amitabh Bachchan . I have also seen this interview where he said these words and I still go by these words whenever anything doesn't happen according to my wishes... :)
