On this day of the 5 th death anniversary ofmy wife Mariam , I could testify God has been good. I used to think if I am sick who will look after me. But for this 5 years I had not been sick and in bed it is the grace of God .
I shared a message on MARIAM what each word stands for with my family which I am giving below.

III. A stands for abundance Phil 4:19 luke6:28.
We did have needs but God meet all the needs. Morning I would have gone to work without any money at home but in the evening we had our needs met.
One Sunday the pastor of our church said that he has sold his car for there was no money to build the church, the next day Maria gave her only Gold chain to build the church. Today I can say God has meet all our needs and have paid back about 10 lakhs of loan I had in 2010. What ever you give God will give back multiple fold.
IV. R for rejoice Phil 4:4 John 16:20
When at mid night she will be in severe pain she would ask me to pray or call her friend and pray in the morning no one will know she had gone through pain. She did not complain any time of her pain.
Till her death she did all her work by herself. She rejoiced in the Lord always.
V. I stands for In his presence Mat 6:33
2010 Jan we took her to hospital as she was very sick. The doctors told that she has to be admitted immediately and operation to be done. It was a Wednesday, She said “I will go to church on the Sunday and on Monday I will get admitted. She always gave importance for God’s presence , she never missed her church on a Sunday.
VI. A stands for abide in Him. John 15:4 7. 2 cor 5:17.
In 1982 a pastor came home and shared the gospel with her and prayed for her telling her about the sickness which she was going through and prayed for her, on that day she receivedJesus in her life and started her walk with Jesus. She truly abided in Him.
VII. M stands for Mighty God Isaiah 9:6
As paul said in 2 Tim. 4:17 She had fought a good figh and kept her faitht. She went to be with the Mighty God on 20 Feb 2010.
