April is here. It seems Corona calmed down in our towns and all restrictions gone with the winds. People back to work as usual with trains , buses and their own cars. The environments had a breathe for a year of rest, the jungles , the trees , the greens and the rivers, all had a year of restoration. The bad people got back to their own wicked way and the good people continue their charity and ministry to the world. Not only that we back to our business of Love, to love people, to love one another.
The sun is brighter these days. It doesn’t bother the skin any more. The guitar man playing his instrument in a better way. The world still does not have the power of unity. In Kolkata poor kids still looking for the foods. But there is Hope. Which just Christ brought us a few days ago by coming out of grace alive. If our greatest achievement measured in this world , we are missing the point. To seek Him , to find Him. As St.Augustine of Hippo said “To fall in love with God is the greatest romance; to seek him the greatest adventure; to find him, the greatest human achievement.”
We miss the point if put all our Hope in our human achievement! Difinitly , we enjoy God’s victory he has given us here , on earth ! But, not our ultimate hope! Our greatest hope and love is in Christ alone. It doesn’t matter how look like for others. Caralyn Collar says in her latest video ‘I am Free” as she has given her testimony of recovering from anorexia. God changes lives. He is the master of all seasons. From opening the red sea to calming the river on a boat. From rescuing a nation of slavery to rescuing whole world through His Son Jesus. “I have come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” John 10:10b.
War isn’t stopped yet ! Injustice isn’t stopped yet ! Peace is far reach for the nations to come. But Christ is calling for a life more abundantly. A life full of eternal hope for all nations. Can we hear his whisper call of life? We all equal in his Love, no one is less! Everyone of us got His attention. He looks at us such a way of incredible and unexplainable Love. That is why He adopted us to his family. God is not going to change his Mind. So ,I am here with my everything within me , inside out , to proclaim his goodness. His faithfulness has reached to far and farest nation. I am wiping my tears when I write this to you that How much he loves you!? I am not tired to say this to you my dear friend! Yes , to you , are reading this. He loves you so so much. Where ever you are! He is there with you. He is ” a calling ” away. He is “a prayer ” away!
“I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.“
John 10:11 NIV
With my everything 🧡
He isn’t here! He is risen from the dead, just as he said would happen. Come, see where his body was lying.
Matthew 28:6 NLT
The fascinating story of risen-Jesus turned the history of human kind upside down ! He has Shaken all our human logic and philosophy! No one , no one like Jesus you can find quietly like in any history book. He meant , what he claimed to be . He did , what he said to do. He rose from dead after three complete days of silence and sadness! When I have read this story first, I have said , “How could’ve be possible ? ” The question of ‘how’ bombarded from everywhere in my mind ?
The answer only could be found in the book of Holy Spirit. As Jesus shown himself to his disciples after risen from the tomb. Also, In many occasions during that time till now , He has shown himself to all his true disciples. He has risen from the world of darkness to the world of lightness that we can inherite his kingdom, when we can rign with Him.
He has risen to give us a new world , to be with him.
He loves you so much! Unbelievably much more than you think . That is why he rose from dead ! Oh , how Great is his unmeasurable love towards us. He didn’t defend himself , he kept waking to the Cross, as blood and water were pouring down from it. My precious Jesus was hangged on a wooden cross and later laid down in an empty tomb. But that was not the end of story , but a new beginning of eternity in Him.
He is Risen. My Jesus is not in that tomb any more. The angles are dancing in Heaven as the King of Kings , the Lamb of God has risen from grave.
His resurrection brought healing to our broken world. We can hold on to Him forever now. His resurrection gives us a new / fresh start of reigning with him. His resurrection brought peace to our disturbance world, where our souls can truly rest and restore. Are you with me? Than, keep calling Him, He is alive and ready to be sought out.
Let Praise and Thank Him on this day.
Father God , I am thankful for your Son Jesus , who rose from that tomb that I can be alive again. Thank you Jesus for your love toward us. In your Name. Amen.
Happy Resurrection day. My Jesus is Alive.
Sometimes we are speechless in prayer. We can’t pray as the burden of the world to much to present. But God knows , He gave us victory in Christ already. He is working in out life. He given mind of Christ to overcome any situation. I remember when I was about a decision , I didn’t know what’s the best one would be or what’s the worst one ! I needed a hand of God to show me and direct me to the right path. I had a short prayer from my heart and I went to act what was the best in my eyes. I remember, Gods hand worked according to my good and He turned the bad to good for me. I was stunned of His faithfulness. God works for his people , for his chosen nation. You are his nation , His chosen one.
Had a great a soccer training last night. What a fantastic evening to break the mid-week , to play football with your team mates. As you know we won our division trophy last year! We went one step up and this year we will be playing in a new division with the boys. I say ,God : I thank you for being with us in all steps.
I am sharing my victory to you in Christ. To know that , we give thanks in all and all. God gave me vicoty at RunWest event run. As you may know from my posts , I did a 12km run competition with fun times. It was a fantastic run. About yesterday got an email about official photos of Marathon are out , the below are some of them, to God be the Glory :
These are some of the mements of vicoty in Christ for me. 12 km run under 60 mins ? Indeed , It is a victory ! Praise to be the One who know the heart of every human.
When I felt , I can’t do it , God says you can , push a bit more , you will celebrate the victory at the finish line. Same as you my friend, don’t give up keep praying, keep pushing to the finish line and celebrate your victory with God. I know life is harsh, I know you ve been hurt , perhaps all of us got that scar of life. Run for the prize, don’t stop ! Close you eyes and have a deep breath and say ” God thank you for the victory of Christ in my life , I will finish the race by the help of you.“
Praise Him, Praise Jesus , Praise and release all your burdens of this world. Praise who He is. Praise for His wonderful acts. Praise ” I am.”
Praise and Sing.

Psalms 105:1 NIV
‘Tough Times Don’t Last, Tough People Do’
It is Palm Sunday pluse my run event.
Mission accomplished! Managed 12km under 60mins .12km run in 58 mins and 30 seconds.
Spacial Thanks to those who made donations to hospitals.
It was a smooth run road , they have chosen nice spots as we had only one top hill to run. I am surprised to my performance, however I could do better. I think running up hills consumes my energy more and drained my last 2 km abit as I was trying to catchup my breathing.
I like the medal, at the back of medal is written : ‘Tough time don’t last , Tough people do ‘…
Today is the day of celebration of entering Jesus to Jerusalem.
We read this story on book of Matthew :
“The disciples went and did as Jesus had instructed them. They brought the donkey and the colt and placed their cloaks on them for Jesus to sit on. A very large crowd spread their cloaks on the road, while others cut branches from the trees and spread them on the road. The crowds that went ahead of him and those that followed shouted, “Hosanna to the Son of David!” “Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!” “Hosanna in the highest heaven!” When Jesus entered Jerusalem, the whole city was stirred and asked, “Who is this?” The crowds answered, “This is Jesus, the prophet from Nazareth in Galilee.”
Matthew 21:6-11 NIV
Hosanna in the highest heaven.
I hope we be a people don’t turn from Him when circumstances change. The same people shouted for Joy , a few days later shouted to crucify him. I hope we continue be side of Hosanna, no matter what they said.
Hosanna ,will help us today , tomorrow and the future. He is Jesus. He is entering to your town. Would you cheer him up and continue so? Would you keep him tight in your arms and don’t let Him go ?
You are not alone ! You will never be. You are enough. You are in right place , the place need to be , the purpose of God is not far from you. Let’s keep this secret on our heart. The change is near!
Dear lovely friend , I’m blessed you are here. Would you care to share this blog ? Would you love to follow my blog ? I am praying for us to have a greater encounter with our creator every single day.
Happy weekend friends , I am glad to bring you another encouragement post that together we can be inspired and empowered in whatever we are facing today’s and tomorrow’s.
In start of this year 2021 , I brought to you a post called GOD IS LOVE , let me continue with that, as a few days ago I was confirmed with first John chapter 4 verse 8:
Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.
1 John 4:8 NIV
If you are following me also on instagram , I immediately post then on my insta story and feed page.
Of course to understand this verse we need to read the whole chapter , which broadly gave a better understanding of what God love is. We are born to love and to be kind to each other without causing any pain and hurt. When we love ourselves and others , we tell to the world that God is Love. Ofcourse , this love first shown to us by Jesus.
I am progressing this still! I want to learn more! We are not here to cretisize and hitting others with opinions and philosophy! Simply, We are here to be like Him in every level. God’s love is not shaky and unstable like human love. Imagine , a God think like human! God understands our dusty love ! He accepts it and when we wrapp it with his heavenly grace , it will turn His attention to us.
Let me turn the verse this way :
Whoever does love , does know God , becasue God is Love.
How can I bring love to my enemies? Those , so harshly hates me for nothing. I need a different level of energy, which can be given by the Holy Spirit. A desire , a sacrifice of my proud. I need to be willing to know God ! To know Him means to obey . I might fallen on my own steps. But, I have to know , if I want to access the source, I must practice, practice of Love. I need to bury my pride, give all glory to Him , who can keep loving us unconditionally. When I am unconscious of His love for some time. I am lost in my world. All I need to do is , Love.
More to come,
Only 4 days left to our big running event. This is my first time , I am part of this running event. It is one of the big one in the Western Sydney area. My plan is to go for 12km run at this event. For this very reason and others , I have done a rehearsal run for 16km.
💥16km , 1 hour and 44 mins. 23 March 2021.
RunWest event : 28 March 2021
After heavy rainfall for a week , It is a beautiful day today in Sydney. A clear blue sky as sun dancing and shining throughout the streets. Thank God , we much needed sun. I missed it, our Sunny days.
💛Repeat this after me :
👉RISE , I rise , I am focused ! I choose to finish the line. I I am called , I choose to be me , to be healthier! I win the race , I am the child of most high ! I CAN , I make a difference . I choose to run , harder and better . I face the toughness , I am a disciple, a soldier of Heaven. I keep the peace , I am a peace maker , I create , I love , I care , I run; faster and stronger ! My name is Vicorty , Grace reciever by my Father in Heaven.
I am a listener !
I am a follower !
Peace and Love
God is with me

And Mary said: “My soul glorifies the Lord and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior, for he has been mindful of the humble state of his servant. From now on all generations will call me blessed, for the Mighty One has done great things for me— holy is his name. His mercy extends to those who fear him, from generation to generation. He has performed mighty deeds with his arm; he has scattered those who are proud in their inmost thoughts. He has brought down rulers from their thrones but has lifted up the humble. He has filled the hungry with good things but has sent the rich away empty. He has helped his servant Israel, remembering to be merciful to Abraham and his descendants forever, just as he promised our ancestors.”
Luke 1:46-55 NIV
Mary , Mother of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Although, the weekend was wet and rainy, but I had chance to serve again at my local church. Yep, our church is opened its doors in a limited number. I always wanted to learn to love people, to be kind to them. I am in learning of love them like Jesus as this morning God loves us, as tomorrow He does and after tomorrow..

Night 6 / 7
Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me bring love.
Where there is offence, let me bring pardon.
Where there is discord, let me bring union.
Where there is error, let me bring truth.
Where there is doubt, let me bring faith.
Where there is despair, let me bring hope.
Where there is darkness, let me bring your light.
Where there is sadness, let me bring joy.
O Master, let me not seek as much
to be consoled as to console,
to be understood as to understand,
to be loved as to love,
for it is in giving that one receives,
it is in self-forgetting that one finds,
it is in pardoning that one is pardoned,
it is in dying that one is raised to eternal life.

Sleep well in Jesus Name
Night 5 / 7
You are God’s idea. God’s child. Created in God’s image. would you let this truth find its way into your heart? you are being made into God’s image. Print that on your resume. You are a diamond, a rose, and a jewel, purchased by the blood of Jesus Christ. In the eyes of God you are worth dying for. Would you let this truth define the way you see yourself? Would you let this truth define the way you see other people? Every Person you see was created by God to bear his image and deserves to be treated with dignity and respect. This means all people deserve to be seen for who they are: image bearers of God. You and I were made by God to know him and make him known. isn’t time we grew up? we were made to live a life that says, “Look at God!” People are to look at us and see not us but the image of our Maker. This is God’s plan. This is God’s promise. And He will fulfill it! He will make us into his image.

My beautiful friend, do you know I am sharing this 7 night prayer before sleep , and tomorrow would be night 6. You are sharing is a blessing. Someone need to read it.
Rest well in Jesus Name.
Night 4 / 7
God wants you to celebrate His promises without any insecurity or inhibition. His promise of forgiveness is rooted in His faithfulness.Enjoy your righteousness in Him! If we confess our sins , he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. (1 John 1:9)
Finally, rest in His promise of your future. As you read this passag, let your guard down. Don’t allow Satan to plant any doubt in your mind. Celeberate and even scream in worship. Your faith in His faithfulness will give you the strength to endure whatever is necessary. Celebrate our future together:
Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away and there was no longer any sea. I saw the Holy City the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, ” Now the dwelling of God is with men, and he will live with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away. He who seated on the throne said, ” I am making everything new !” Then he said ” Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.” ( Rev.21:1-5)

Stay tuned for tomorrow night prayer. Night five , please share this to your loved ones. I am sure it will bless them.
Rest well in Jesus Name
Night 3 / 7
If you don’t believe me, just stop and imagine. Think and imagine a world where the love is the way. Imagine our homes and families where love is the way. Imagine neighbourhoods and communities where love is the way. Imagine government and nations where love is the way. Imagine business and commerce where love is the way. Imagine this tired old world where love is the way. When love is the way- unselfish , sacrificial, redemptive love- then no child will go to bed hungry in this world ever again.
Dr Chardin was right. Solomon was right. Dr.King was right : we must discover love- the redemptive power of love. And when we do that, we will make of this old world, a new world. My brother , my sister – God loves you, God bless you, and may God hold us all in this almighty hands of love.
– The Power of Love, by Bishop Michael B.Curry , Copyright 2018
Please continue be with me for night 4 , tomorrow night, I will bring another prayer before sleep post. That will bless us all. Share it to your loved ones.
Sleep well in Jesus Name,
Take courage , offer him your pains incessantly, and pray to Him for strength to endure them. Above all, get a habit of entertaining yourself often with God, and forget Him the least you can. Adore Him in your infirmities, offer yourself to Him from time to time, and in the height of your sufferings beseech Him humbly and affectionately (as a child his father) to make you comfortable to His holy will. I will endeavor to assist you with my poor prayers. He is the Father of the afflicted, always ready to help us. He loves us infinitely more than we imagine. Love Him, therefore , and see no consolation elsewhere. I hope will soon receive it.

Sleep well in Jesus Name,
Good news my beloved friends , I am going to post a’ prayer before sleep’ for 7 nights. Each night from a different faithfull man and their books. Be with me and share this with your friends and family. Someone need to read this prayer before sleep.
O Lord God , now grant me the grace not only to rest my body this night, but to have my spiritual repose in soul and conscience, in your grace and love, that I may let go of all earthly cares so I might be comforted and eased in all ways. And because no day passes that I do not sin in so many ways, please bury all my offences in your mercy, that I might not lose your presence. Forgive me merciful Father, for Christ’s sake. And as I lay down in sleep to safely awake again only by your grace, keep me in a joyful, lively remembrance that whatever happens, I will someday know know my final rising- the resurrection- because Jesus Christ lay down in death for me and rose for my justification. In his name I pray, Amen.
– Timothy Keller , Prayer , Expriencing awe and intimacy with God, 2014
Sleep well In Jesus Name.
Precious friend , my dear loving reader. Just wanted to tell you , and may re-confirm it in your heart. That you are loved by Father , precious in every word. Even , no body knows your name or know who you are. But He knows. He does.
God won’t forget your repentance and your prayer and love toward others. People may forget your kind act or service. But God does not , and He remembers it-all , every details of. Of course, all your good act of love to yours and others.
Death of flesh is not the end of your spiritual life in Christ. It is a new blossom beginning of being in right place.
My friend, how much I love to tell this to you and myself : God won’t forget us , when we forget Him. He is still there. Even when the time of our departures arrive.
Sometimes, my blindness block all goodness of Him in Him. I’m praying for healing, that to know how can I love people more, forgetting all the human shyness by wearing heavenly culture.
Run , by trusting in him.
Stay , by hoping in him.
Go , by believing in him.
All for His Glory
His name is even ABLE. They killed this Able and this time He rose from dead and He is alive forever, His Name is Jesus. He is going to change our names and He will give us a victorious name forever. God can do , God will do , God is done.
He is Able to able me and you to win the race. Not because we have the power , no , because He is so much powerful and loving. Able-God do and act more than I ask. More than even I can imagine or think. He is Good. He is wonderful Father who cares and loves us.
I need to remind this verse thousands of time :
Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.
Ephesians 3:20 NLT
Don’t you think He is able to rescue us in this dark age? Don’t you think his mighty power is at work within us?
He meets our needs , today.
Pray for hands of God be active more in our life;
In our cities ,
In the nation’s.
Pray for loving do-able arm of living God act in our hearts and those need to know him.
Pray continually, for His grace and a new revival. His comfort arms.
Knowing that He is Able always , no matter what. Able to give us heavenly peace , and by leaving all our concern in His hands.
This is a comfort of love for each one of us.
He is Able , Always
Yep , Australia done with summer 20-21. And today is the first day of Autumn. I didn’t have chance go to beach much. I think it was a hardest summer for many as so many beaches were closed due to pandemic. But , I am grateful, not because they were closed. But , because we had a great summer weather. Last two years, I remember, we’ve had a bad bush fire season. Also , good rain poured out throughout this summer.
The below is my last photo of summer 2021 in Sydney, Australia:
No filter , God just painted as beautiful as His heart. His faithfulness goes to generations and generations. I learnt to keep the things simple. I learnt to be content in whatever life faces me.
We had rain enough , the trees are more green than last summer. So , Autumn is ready to come in and show its dance of leafs. The colours are ready for a change from green to yellow. The warm clothes are slowly ready to be picked up from the closet. And the grandma’s cookies going to be taken from oven. If not that, the changes of heart and protective to life comes with every season.
Who knows ! May this Autumn be more beautiful than previous one. May God enlighten our hearts to His beauty more. That , we may know God loves us in every single season. We are blessed that we can see another one. Another , painted-season of our creator. I know , some of you are in a different season than Australia. One thing remains , The Goodness and Gratitude of the season that we can offer to our creator. Open your eyes and see the wonders of Love.
What do you see? How do you see it? New season is here.
Saturday is a rest day for me. A day of blogging , hiking , fishing , reading , meditating ,loving and wondering around 🙂 .
Jacquelyn Smith in her article at forbes.com written ‘ 14 Things successful people do on weekends “, Here they are : “
Everyone of us somehow doing at least one thing from above list. Specially meditating and reflecting God goodness for the week before and ahead. See the list above and look for which one you can do for the next weekend.
However our list may look like below as well :
Let me fit Praying into the list. Most of us do not want to live the house on the weekend. Instead , we want to stay in our comfort and and take a deep rest after a heavy stressful week. Another group of us , their plan is to improve and enhance their education or perhaps they have an exam ahead to pass.
Being in Nature , is the best activity for me on the weekend. Walking in the middle of greens and huge trees are my weekend desire. But , sometimes the laziness takes over and staying in door satisfy this thirsty soul. or may be watching my fav tv series gives enough indication of not going out. haha.
We need to slow down , reflect and be aware of ourselves and people around us. Do what you want to do ( if it is right) , Go where you want to go , Fly, if you need to , and enjoy the season of God greatness in the land.
It is hard for not to play football on weekend. Serving others are also included in part of my weekend.Well, depends what is your priorities and the circumstances you are in. If you are mother with many little children , than your priorities depends the mode of your children. If you are a single person then , your will say ‘ how will I spend my weekend’ .
Now , tell me what’s your plan on the weekend ?
No one is holy like the Lord ! There is no one besides you; there is no Rock like our God.
1 Samuel 2:2 NLT
This was a prayer of a broken woman which we read in book of Samuel. She declares :
No one is Holy like the Lord.
No one besides Him.
No Rock like our God.
She lifted up her prayers to the Lord with a loud voice. Friend , treasure this in your soul and bring it to the God who answers.
None like our God.
For the Lord gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding.
Proverbs 2:6 NIV
Wisdom, Wisdom and Wisdom . A heavenly and divine wisdom , a great and incredible knowledge and an understanding beyond human thoughts and mind.
Can we keep this in our memory!? And hold it tight in our hearts today?
Not my knowledge but His.
Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.
Hebrews 12:2 KJV
NIV version translated as FIXING our eyes on Jesus..
We must never stop looking to Jesus. If we accept Him as our saviour and Lord. We need to believe He is the beginning and the end.
Fix your eyes on Jesus is the best experience you can have in the midst of difficulties of this life.
Read the scripture above again with a slow step and let think what fixing your eyes on Jesus means?
Fixing our eyes on Jesus means :
Peace comes. Miracles happens. And worries gone.
Focus on Jesus
Show us your unfailing love, Lord , and grant us your salvation.
Psalms 85:7 NIV
God unfailing love , Lord lovingkindness. His salvation our portion.
Let His way , be your way
..great blessings will be yours if you do them. ” This is the Word of Jesus to his disciples when he washed their feet.
Combining action with knowledge is a great prospective of a Christian life. It is not easy, put our words in an action. Christ washed his disciples feet to give us an example, how should we do it? He is teaching us the value of spiritual washing , if you haven’t read John 13 : 1 to 17 , I suggest go and read it.
In my saturday bible read and focus. Verse 17 of John 13 captured my attention. That, in a simple saying : life is happy if you love and serve others. The most important thing we need to know that we are happy inside, if our soul becomes Joy. Which is not on surface, but inside of us. Jesus is saying if you want to have this Joy , do what I taught you. ” washing others’ feet ”
As commentary says : ” cleansing of the soul from the pollution of sin ” how ? By doing these things Jesus said. By putting our knowledge in practice. As James brother of Jesus , gave us a better phrase: ” Faith without works is dead “
“Not what we say about our blessings, but how we use them, is the true measure of our thanksgiving.” – W.T Purkiser
