Prerna's blog

Concealed within
woven layers of self doubt,
a beautiful and intricate
tapestry of the soul,
yearns to unwind
and reach those places
where no awl
could fathom it’s miseries
or mysteries
about itself.
Oh let my soul unwind,
cocoon me in its
warm abstract glow
and bridge gaps
the known
and the unknown.

8 Prayers For Those Searching For God

From The Darkness Into The Light

Submit to Him and He will make your paths straight.

By Lesli White

We are pulled in different directions, and hardly any of the popular notions we are tempted to entertain on a daily basis would have us following Jesus as God intends. But prayer is powerful. Through our waving, the Holy Spirit translates and our Heavenly Father hears. God gives us a special promise in Psalm 30:5: “Weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning.” If you’re in need and searching for God, you can rest assure that He is on the way. Here are seven prayers for those searching for God:

Help Me to See You

In today’s world, it’s easy for us to think that we suffer alone. But if you have wondered where God is, so has someone else. We think the experiences we’re going through are bigger than us, but we…

When Tempted to Sin, Follow St. Francis de Sales’ Advice

Catholicism Pure & Simple

My son, when you come to serve God, prepare your soul for temptation.” –Ecclus. (Sirach) 2:1

Saint Francis de Sales (1567-1622)

St. Francis de Sales, whose feast we celebrate on 24th January (29th January in the Extraordinary Form) in his book Introduction to the Devout Lifeexplains what you should do when you are initially tempted.

So soon as you feel yourself anywise tempted, do as our little children when they see a wolf or a bear in the mountains. Forthwith they run to the protection of their father or mother, or at least cry out for help. Do you fly in like manner to God, claiming His compassion and succour,—it is the remedy taught us by our Lord Himself: “Pray that ye enter not into temptation.”

If, nevertheless, the temptation persists or increases, hasten in spirit to embrace the holy Cross, as though you beheld…

Charles Spurgeon’s Morning and Evening

From The Darkness Into The Light

Morning  Evening 


“I will mention the lovingkindnesses of the Lord, and the praises of the Lord, according to all that the Lord hath bestowed on us.”
Isaiah 63:7

And canst thou not do this? Are there no mercies which thou hast experienced? What, though thou art gloomy now, canst thou forget that blessed hour when Jesus met thee, and said, “Come unto me”? Canst thou not remember that rapturous moment when he snapped thy fetters, dashed thy chains to the earth, and said, “I came to break thy bonds and set thee free”? Or if the love of thine espousals be forgotten, there must surely be some precious milestone along the road of life not quite grown over with moss, on which thou canst read a happy memorial of his mercy towards thee? What, didst thou never have a sickness like that which thou art suffering now, and did…

All the Women of the Bible

From The Darkness Into The Light

Duration: 365 days


The Woman Who Was More Practical Than Spiritual

Scripture ReferencesLuke 10:38-41;John 11;12:1-3

Name Meaning—As a Chaldee or Syriac word, Martha is the feminine ofmoroormore, meaning “lord,” “master.” We find this in the formmaranin the well-known phrase Maran-atha, “The Lord cometh” (1 Corinthians 16:22). There are those who think thatKyria, translated “lady” in2 John 1, is a proper name, the Greek equivalent of this word. Carpzov supposes that thisKyriawas the same person as Martha of Bethany.

Family Connections—Of the history of Martha, the Bible tells us nothing save that she was the sister of Mary and Lazarus, and lived with them at Bethany. Some early writers have made Martha, the daughter, wife, or widow of Simon the Leper, and that on his death the house became hers, hence the…

The Desolations of Jerusalem

End times: Prophetic Scriptures

Daniel 9:1-3 In the first year of Darius the son of Ahasuerus, of the seed of the Medes, which was made king over the realm of the Chaldeans; In the first year of his reign I Daniel understood by books the number of the years, whereof the word of the LORD came to Jeremiah the prophet, that he would accomplish seventy years in the desolations of Jerusalem. And I set my face unto the Lord God, to seek by prayer and supplications, with fasting, and sackcloth, and ashes

‘First year’ the vision was seen about a year after the one in Daniel 8:1-27 (cp. 5:30-31 with 8:1). ‘Darius the son of Ahasuerus’ this was no doubt Astyages or Xerxes, the son of Ahasuerus or Cyaxares. Ahasuerus is an appellative and used of four kings of Medo-Persia. The Greek form is Xerxes. Both Cyaxares and Astyages was called Ahasuerus, the appellative…

Splitting Things Up


I’ve had fun lately with colors and acyrlic pouring. You’ve seen a monochromatic pouring I completed recently, and you’ve looked at the complementary color scheme I used for for Christmas pourings. Now, I’m moving on to slightly split complementaries — and I say slightly because I’m not attempting to match colors exactly to those on the color wheel. My color studies are for fun, so I’m quickly grabbing whatever colors I have and using them rather than spending a lot of time mixing and matching exactly.

What is a split-complementary color scheme? Let’s start first with complements. Complementary colors are those that are opposite one another on a color wheel. Most of us probably learn these basic pairings in grade school. I had a very limited art education, but it did include information on complementaries.

Red – Green

Yellow – Violet

Blue – Orange

Each pairing is composed…

Don’t Stop

Banter Republic

There’s no such thing as too much affection. If your partner complains about you choking them with too much love, that’s not your partner. You don’t just stop loving someone. You either always will, or you never did in the first place.When someone yells Stop! I don’t know whether it’s in the name of love, it’s hammer time, or I should smell the flowers. It’s all too confusing sometimes. If you don’t want a sarcastic answer, don’t ask a stupid question.

The grind ends when you’re dead. You don’t stop having fun when you get old. You get old when you stop having fun. I’m in my early thirties and I feel like I was around the same time as the founding fathers. I don’t know how to act my age, I’ve never been this age before. Funny how when we start to tell a secret, we…
