I was all ears, to know how he responded. Here's his reply.
"Yes. I am commited to Jesus Christ.Why? Because he stuck with me and saw me through my worst days. When my parents couldn't understand what I went through. Nor my friends. The fears, the anxieties that I went through; he saw me through it all. He has invested so much in me . I am what I am because of his Grace.
The Bible says in Jer 29:11, that God has a plan for me, plan to prosper me and give me a future.
He created me. He knows me inside out .
He knows the best person for me.
When the time is right, he will let me know that person too.
Do u know him?
Do u know, what his plan is for ur life ?
If not get to know him.
He will be the Best Friend, u will ever have.
He will take u places, u have never been.
Crushes come crushes Go.
God remains the same.
I will change. But God won't.
He knows you, better than what you understand of urself [:)]
This is what i believe"
Disclaimer: The above have been the exact response given to/by my friend, published in his knowledge, under my request, as I believe you should read it. :) . Except for few punctuations, no other changes have been made.

My uncle died of a heartattack on my aunt's bday,and she had passed away a week earlier due to a fatal accident.Though it grieves to know that the family was wiped off so quickly and suddenly, it is good to see the legacy he has left behind. Though childless, the couple had adopted 2 girl babies, who are now married,settled with kid. ( Two Girl babies adoption at that age, aint that extraordinary?)The only elder bro of my dad, he had been calm, when my dad was boiling with rage at the murderers of their parents. All through his life, he has exhibited, practiced love, joy, peace, patience, gentleness, goodness, faithfulnesss, kindness, self control. The locals were witnessing his humilty, gentleness and NO ONE has ever seen him angry!
What is more amazing is their L O V E. When a man falls in love with a woman, and if God is in the center of it, how strong that relationship becomes. How intertwined, deep and secure it stands. The two become one. One in the Lord.
Mark 10:8...and the two will become one flesh.' So they are no longer two, but one.

My aunt passed away yesterday. She had a fatal accident last week, with a bus running over her thigh and ribs. We were praying for God's healing touch.
There are times, when we are helpless,when we don't understand why the good Lord seems silent. There are other day to day happenings, When our hopes are dashed, when dreams crumble, when future looks dark and dreary, when our legs go shaky, and the pit of the stomach feels hollow, when nothing makes sense, and all seems to be a mess around, with noway out. And that's when I realise, we need to be still.
Just be STILL. With Closed eyes. Closed Ears. Mouth shut. Knowing He Knows. And that He is the same, yesterday, today and forever.
Stopping all logical reasoning, the facts, the statistics and get rooted only on faith.
The disciples SAW the storm, they HEARD the wind, they could FEEL the water in the boat. They screamed with their MOUTH 'We are dying' and there was Jesus, with closed eyes, ears, mouth and SLEEPING.
Peace, he has given to us. ALREADY. When we shut all our active system down, and focus on him, we'll live the peace, though nothing makes sense, though all around we see is a mess, confusion, and broken beyond repair.
He KNOWS.Be still, and know that I am God Psalm 46:10
We have this hope (Jesus) as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure. Heb 6:19
I have set the LORD always before me. Because he is at my right hand, I will not be shaken.Psalm 16:8
It was 6.30 AM. Usualy I get up before mom, but today was different.God has saved us both. Mom had left the bedroom few mins before. Had it fallen earlier or later during the day or had fallen on my side, it would have been fatal. We lived through a miracle.
Every moment we live is a gift of God. By the grace and mercies of our good Lord.
For He will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways,they will lift you up in their hands,so that you will not strike your foot against a stone. Psalm 91:10-12
