Hope in Corona Time ebook by Dariush Youkhaneh

I am grateful to introduce you my new eBook called Hope in Corona Time.

Hope in Corona Time eBook is now available for pre order on major online bookshop. Release date : 23 July 2020.

Short description:

With the cry of man reaching to heaven, “All things are possible for one who believes” is the word of Jesus for our present world of chaos. We may feel like we are caught in the fish tank, but God is providing a way to the sea. When we are lost in the jungle of diseases and death, a heavenly hand is pointing us to the way of life and light.
This book is my own reflection of hope and grace. I purposely formulated the title of each chapter with a question. I believe you will be greatly encouraged and gain a new prospective on life. Because the contents have been prayed over, I believe this book will significantly speak to you.
May I invite you to read the book as if we were having a phone conversation during this unprecedented time of the coronavirus—Covid-19. I trust our conversation will awesomely enlighten both of our hearts as we leave a world of confusion to embrace a heart full of hope, faith, and peace. This unique time in our life needs a special look. Welcome to the land of possibility and encouragement. Let’s start our talk.

A Forever Friend

I’ve never been too good to be a forever friend for someone(yet). But I’ve always tried to be me , who I am to be , not changing with seasons in and out. I’ve had a few good friends which I really appreciate our friendship. Good friends are like the veins, the real friends stick around. They do not skip away with their friend difficulties. They are honest. They do everything for you. They value so much and respect their friendship. If you ask me , how many friends like those you have ? I’ll say, might less than you thought. I need to be careful to say it , as some they might be reading this post :). Count your real friends. Count your forever friends. Count your good friends. How many are they?

We can categories the friends: Normal , Good , Real and Forever.

Normal friends , they come from a door and go from another one. They comes and goes. We call them the ‘Hello’s’ . Good friends are those are good to you, as long as you are good with them. Sometimes they turn to be real friends and there is a chance of being a Forever friend privilege. Real friends are those that every person at least has 1 or 2. They are real deals. They are rare and you cannot find them easy. They passed their test and they stay with you as long as possible. And the last and the most important friends are the Forever ones. They are game changer of our life.

A forever friend ! Let me talk to you about one of my forever friend. No need an introduction , He might be your forever friend too. His Name is Jesus. He invites us to be his forever friend. A normal friend won’t stay around that much, but a genuine friend who cares stay long and long. Everyone looking for the one ! Whom stays forever ! It is hard to find this kind of friend. You know! Oh these days… it is privileged to be a forever friend for someone. Are you the one? Are you the one whom genuinely stay and care !? I hope , I would be ! I hope I don’t hurt anyone.
It is a few day I am praying to God that He shapes me to be a man he expected me to be. I pray to God that I would be a good brother to my siblings. I pray that I would be a Good child for my parents. That I would be a real friend if i have to be. That I would be a real husband if i have to be. That I would be a real father if I have to be. Oh I am praying that i can be a good disciple if i have to follow. That I would be a real and honest neighbour of my next door. Jesus is our true friends. He will never let us down.
Revelation 3 : 20 says ” “Look! I stand at the door and knock. If you hear my voice and open the door, I will come in, and we will share a meal together as friends.”(NLT)
Jesus said in John 15 : 15 …”Now you are my friends .”

Also , My dearest. I am talking about the friendship topic that we can put more value on it. It is great to have real friends around. If you do not have one. It is okay ,Jesus is your real friend, He will provide for someone you can do your life with. I love you and wants the best for you , that is why I am writing to you. That you know someone out there thinking about you. You are loved, you are wonderfully made, you are beautiful enough, enough who you are!

Much Love

How can we have peace in these days?

I am not going to give a prescription of peace here. But, I am going to give an old formula based in the Bible. This worked many centuries , and it will work today in our 21 century. Yes , It is okay , you may criticize this but do not let your curious mind stop you to enter to the given peace of God , in whatever era you are in , this is your answer. Do not go anywhere. This will heal you.Let’s dive in.

IMG_20200530_135523_731.jpg

1- Simcha ( is Hebrew word) it means gladness , joy and celebration.
To be consistent in the state of happiness we need to enter in a different era. Jewish people normally call this word when there is a festive like a wedding or a great ceremony of someone else life. I want us to consider this . Apostle Paul use this word which is translated for us as Rejoice , always rejoice. A person who have joy and happy heart can serve others better not like a person with a depressed heart. Let Simcha overflow your inner being as book of Philippians 4 : 4 says. Let our names change to Simcha , a joyful person , who is willing to give joy to others. Also , we got an advantage from old time people , we got the Holy Spirit in our hearts , means now we got the double joy in our souls. Rejoice always in all your situations.

2- Be Sober – Speak the truth all the time to all your human interaction
The second part of our formula is be honest and forgive others fast. We , the Humans, sometimes takes loads of time to forgive someone , speaking of truth would be a hard task for most of us. But , not you have to , you need to do it, This part is not a command but a desire! Are you willing put others first? Are you willing speak truth all the time no matter what? Being Sober means being your real you, and know what’s the real deal. This is what Brene Brown says:
“When I got sober, I thought giving up [alcohol] was saying goodbye to all the fun and all the sparkle, and it turned out to be just the opposite. That’s when the sparkle started for me.” So Let it be and let us learn to be Sober. I need this one badly.

3- Be Chassid( this is a Hebrew word – selfless )A Chassid does everything with vitality, joy and passion
The Third pill we need to take is Chassid. A Chassid person gives others with a generous and joyful heart. As you’ve taken Sichma in the first part above, now you are ready to be a Chassid. This is not something you want to live on your own instead , you are thinking of others too. You want to be involved and help them in their physical needs. Why do i need this Chassid? Because it helps to be a better human , a more passionate heart that is where take me one more step closer to my creator. I don’t need to think about my self only ( of course you have to look after yourself ) I can be a kind of human to reach to the poor community ( if i can ). If I am struggling to be selfless , then somehow the formula not going to work and we are not entering the complete state of peace of God.

4- Don’t be anxious (Matthew 6 : 25 )
The fourth pill of peace – is the most important part of our formula. Be anxious for nothing. There are tones of information out there, from old tradition till to new tradition way to give you guidance how to not be anxious. Even there are physical medical pills for not being anxious. But I’d like to address this if we have anxious heart and mind , it means we have not done the whole three parts (pills) above. We simply ignore them and take the situation our hands rather God’s hands. For this body and life you need to be thankful(part 6 ). Do not worry about tomorrow or the future. The reality is we do not know what will happen in the next hour or minute. All we know that we have a creator , A God of universe who knows everything. plus , we are not meant to be in this body forever, So , Adonai Controls our time. He knew you before you born, And He knows about how you’ve been terrified of your very fist day at work. And How you learnt to walk for the very fist time, Because He is is our Father , and which Father forgets his child?

5- Be in Prayer
This part gives you confidence to take further walk in His peace. You are talking to unseen God, Whom has been with you all the way from your mother’s womb till now. Have a real conversation and tell all your needs, tell your loved ones needs , tell your city’s needs, tell your country’s needs and Tell Him , how this world treat you. Then you will be able to pour out your heart in a way you have peace in the darkest hours. Because you know how much a prayer can change you and others. You know the importance of prayer because it changes the things around. If you do not know how to talk , just start with a simple words, And read the Bible and in this way the person of God will speak to you and teach you how to prayer as you got the Holy Spirit in you.

6- Give Hoda’yah( this is a hebrew word ) Give thanks , be thankful , Gratitude
of your heart
After , you’ve done all 5 parts above you got a gratitude heart, full of thankfulness. You know God will answer you, You are thanking for all things. You know God got you and your family and others. You are giving Hoda’yah with full heart of Simcha , Sober , not worrying for anything and prayer. You find any opportunity to give thanks to God. And you are really thankful for this life and the next life ahead. You look forward to a bright future with a thankful heart. How Good to give thanks to God?

7- Shalom Adonai will be with you
Now , you’ve done all 6 part above well, as God rested after 6 days creation, It is time for you to receive God’s rest in your soul. The peace of God will be with you. You know how to have peace these days?
Have Simcha , Be Sober , Be Chassid ,Don’t be anxious, Be in Prayer , Give Thanks and Shalom

Hope this helps you and make you many more steps closer to God.

Based On Philippians 4: 4- 7

oh Father..oh Father

Oh Father , Can you see my wounds from this world you made>?
Is this not enough to carry whole heavy burden of this world in me? yes True, you said ” give all your burdens to me “.
Please flame it up with your fire of passion. I am not here to prove who is right and who is wrong! I am here to have faith in you, simply live a life of love.

oh Father, Can you make a new being again and again in me and others?
It seems the world you made , hurting so bad! I am here to submit my soul to you. I know you are hearing me. I know you are believing in me , like a child learning how to walk , I am learning how to love.
Oh Father, Why is it hard to love one another? How can we see the unseen things in other without judging them or offending them. You are the one that i can only trust in the storms.20200606_171514

Oh Father, Can you make me humble? Humbler then before. remove the repeated old in me and let a new blood of you being flooded in my veins. When people see me the they see your son, washed inwardly and pured with heavenly coal.
Oh Father , You call me your favorite son , is it true you got one of the best spot for me in heaven. Is it true you are going to show me your heavens.If not, open my tired eyes of heart.

Oh Father, oh Father…

I have hope, because you have always, a door open for me. Am I young to not knowing you enough. Does my old sins stopping you to love me more? Never. Does my repeating human mistakes stopping me to love you less? may it be Never.

oh Father , my sweet sweet Father.
Change me to be the one you want me to be. Somehow you want me , you do not need me.
That makes me special and chosen.
That makes me safe and secure.
That makes me love and new.

I am holding to this oh Father.

Much love

The Fresh Air of the Spirit , all we need , for any nation in the world. Yes ,the deciples had waited for this fresh air. It had changed the atmosphere for them, it will change our air today also.

This Fresh Air of Spirit started thousands years ago , now , we can carry and see this everywhere we go , the below are some of the fresh air from Sydney ,Australia ! I am sure there millions like this on earth , find yours nearby you:

These days spotty air need the fresness of the Spirit. The Love of Jesus , the forgiveness of Sin , the Grace to unlash any issue. Let’s breath in the fresh air of Spirit and breath out the muggy air.

Let’s hold on to this Fresh Air of Spirit.

God’s Love; Freezes me

I love to give a hug to myself. The moment i realise i am in deep love of God. The moment when He already given me cuddle with His beautiful presence everywhere i go.Right last Saturday , I went for a hike with 2 other friends ( for sure social distancing in the place :)) . I was privileged to be there , I am blessed to see God’s wonders in the nature. As the nature is one of my motivation in life. I went there , To get another big hug from God. I am a dreamer. River , Jungle and all landscape around are my favorite, I can’t ignore them easy! I grew up close to this environment.

 I remember once , I was lost in the Jungle when i was about 13-14 years old. I was in the heart of Jungle – like God had me in his deepest presence. As my human face wanted to fear – God’s love held me fast. The way found me!

Let me back to my last big hug of God in the Hike. Here is one of awe moment :


You are beautiful , You are so beautiful then anything I can imagine.
I am cuddling you ! How awesome to be near to you!

Trees-
Rivers-
Water falls-
Mountains-
Flowers-

All bow down to your beauty ! and gives me a glimpse of who you are!
The day is yours, and yours also the night;
you established the sun and moon.( Psalms 74 : 16 )
Oh, Your Love freezes me into my bones. How good you are. This kind of love encourages me most, lift me up in you.

Before the mountains were born or you brought forth the whole world, from everlasting to everlasting you are God. ( Psalms 90 : 2 )

Who am I , that put question your beauty here! I am a dreamer! I am yours, I am an infinite lover of you even i stumble, I would still love you.

Somebody wake me up!

Can I follow you more God?

Much Love

Book Review of “Just Do Something: A Liberating Approach to Finding God’s Will” by Kevin DeYoung

This book is published in 2009. Still , Great ! This Kevin DeYoung’s book is one of those book that I highly recommend everyone read at least once in their life. Obviously , It is a Christian based book. The main subject is about ” the will of God”, or and how we can apply and know better the will of God in our life.
Author suggests very helpful and practical explanation of how to know and step in God’s given will of God. It is a short and very enjoyable read! as according wiki Kevin DeYoung is currently the senior pastor at Christ Covenant Church, in Matthews, North Carolina. What I particularly love about His writing , It encourages reader to “get moving”. What i mean by that , obviously you pray about your next move, but choose one way to go and do not wait whole your life that God shows that your only door of destiny. DeYoung stays on the truth of the real will of God. He wants you to do something and see the miraculous love of God in the journey. Here his blog , https://www.thegospelcoalition.org/blogs/kevin-deyoung/ Much Love Dariush Youkhaneh

Remember; Fear not!

Ruth Graham got a letter from her dad which is so much related to our today’s situation. Ruth brought this into her book called “ A legacy of faith, things I learned from my father, Billy Graham.”

rughtgraham

” There are two little words that i have used time after time when i have faced problems, dilemmas, and even the devil. They are: ” Fear not.”

Someone has said that they are ” the divine hush for God’s children.”

All of us face problems in our lives when we need the divine hush. To Abram God said: ” Fear not, I  am thy shield, and thy exceeding great reward.”(Genesis 15: 1 ); and to Joshua:” Fear not, neither be thou dismayed” ( Joshua 8 : 1); and to Gideon: ” Peace be unto thee; fear not, thou shalt not die”(Judges 6:23). How often we think we would rather be dead than to have to go through with our problems and difficulties, yet God promises, ” Fear not, thou shalt not die.”

Then again: ” Fear not, for they that be with us are more than they that be with them”(2 kings 6:16). Now the devil is going to try to get you down a thousand times. he is going to work every angle. He is an old and experienced hand at discouragement, despondency, and especially in trying to sidetrack young people. But remember: “They that be with us are more than they that be with them.”

Remember Psalm 23 : 4 ” I will fear no evil for Thou art with me.”

Or remember Psalm 27:1 ” the Lord is my light and my salvation;whom shall i fear?”

Or again the Psalmist said:” The Lord is at my side, I will not fear what man can do unto me.”…

Remember…Even while you are sleeping, He is at work on your problem.”

Funny story of mine! Burn the doughnut

The story starts from here , I’ve recorded 50km in total run last month.

Happy , joyful and I looked forward for this month to do even more ! If you just divide 50 by the number of days in April , it approximately will land on 1.5 km per day run.

I am motivated to do more, as long as my knees allows me.

Right before yesterday I’ve ran about 7km. I think I’ve lost weight! However my main goal is to stay healthy and fit.

Right today ! I’ve determined ! So glad can make it after working from home! Laced up ! Running shoes short and t-shirt zipped up.

As you can see the best sky view next to me ! Fascinating and magnificent.

I’ve ran for 7.30 km in 47 mins ! It is one of the record I’ve made it! I’ve had a phone call from myvbrother! Need help some!

Then , I have been encountered with so delicious doughnuts ! Not only one, but several.

Then , all that run means GONE .:) I FELT sorry for my body , after a hard run now back to scale again 😁 who had sort of feeling? ! You know what do I mean?

This is so close to our everyday life! Funny ! We train ourselves as hard as we can then with one flick( one doughnut) , takes us back to the first step!! Again , we need to burn all faties of life out.

This is where apostle Paul says “You were running well. Who hindered you from obeying the truth? ” (Galatians 5:7)

And then , comforting mine by saying I’ll burn this out! 😁😀

Much Love

In the beauty of M/Y dreams!

I throw myself into his loving arms! where there is no fear and anxiety . There , I am the friend of God. My creator look to me and saying ” I Love you Son “. Here and there , I can see no pain. When I open my eyes , I see an ocean of beauty . I have never seen such things. The dreams of my dreams can not even imagine how beautiful would be to hold this beauty! oh How you love me?

My dream / Your dream = M/Y dreams

Oh! yeah.. Not everyone knows about this hidden location. It is a place of Love and Grace! There is no such power in my whole imagination. The clever not know that. The smartest person on this planet cannot find it. But, a simple person of the dream will know! The heart of beauty knows ! Knows about i am not from here! I am from where my soul came from. I’ve built it with my tears, tears of Joy! It is not the place of destiny but for the chosen! oh How you love me?

It is sweeter than an Honey! The love of soul. I’ll close my eyes for a moment and I hear the sound of ” I love you my Son “. This Sound is more beautiful than , the sound of waterfall in Bluemountains! Oh , My heart catches the touch of heaven! The well moment of knowing I am in Jesus’ arms! And, the army of angels all around me , dancing and signing the song of love! Oh.. how earth i could’ve known you love me like this! Please do not wake me up.

Can you look to this beauty of my dreams! There are billions of stars around me speaking of this beauty. He catches me and whispering the love song into my ear! I need to walk 2 miles more to see more of this! I need to get four wings to fly more! I’ll be deeper in this love.. deeper than my dreams, deeper than anything! Let me read you on my guitar’s notes , Let me see your unseen face! I’ll stay in this beauty! I’ll dream my dreams! Can i say ” I love you” ? Can I say ” I live for you” Can I say ” I’ll stay with you “…

If I can not feed my dreams .. you still the same

If I can not meet you… you still the love of my life

If I can not express my words to you.. you still the same and know my dreams

I’ll warm the snowy mountains for you ! I’ll go around and around till till to put you in the middle of my chest and my heart can hear the beating of your beauty! I am open wide to invite more of you in me! Can you see it? If you allow me i’ll take you to flower-mountain in the spring. Drive down with your favourite song on the road. I’ll always keep your seat empty! Till you come back..

I’ll wait for it.

yes,I’ll wait. And trusting to your word:

Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us,
Hebrews 12:1 NIV

Ordering Your Private World by Gordon Macdonald/ Book Review

If a ( person) has not order within him, 

He cannot spread order about Him.

___Ezra Pound

The Book started with the above quote.

I’ve read the revised and updated version of this book. Hence this review is shorted. And I am not going to every details of the aspect of Gordon’s style. I wanted to know why this book has been sold over a million copies.

For the first few chapters , I felt disconnected , What i mean by that. Gordon talked about his personal experience. A busy high profile person who has not have a moment for himself. And How to order a chaos inside to a calm ocean. A family with the kids , A pastor whom only looking after others except himself and suddenly reached to a point of pointless. I liked the style of his words and the way he tried to communicate with the readers, Something kept me going to read and finish and know what Gordon wants me to do. After a few chapter it got better and better of what Gordon wants me to know!

It went to more practical in a better way of understanding for the reader. I am pretty amazed of so many things i have learnt in this book. Not in a sophisticated modern language of today but it was smooth, like a flowing river.

I highly recommend you to read this book, It is so enjoyable read and plus something related to our daily life. Ordering our inner life matters. When you pay attention the inner life your outer life will get in order.

We grow by becoming listeners .” ( page 108)

The mind must be trained to think, to analyze , to innovate.”  (page 92 )

” In the deserts one person learns dependence on God.” (page 59)

__ Gordon Macdonald

God is the Champion of our Story

God is the champion of my story.

He was.

He is.

He will be forever.

*******

He has written our stories already. We meant to know this champion more closely. He has given us this permission through Jesus Christ. Sadly, the world turned its face away from this champion of our story and do not know Him. It does not want to know Him!

God was the champion story of Moses as He sang a song. Exodus chapter 15 :

“I will sing to the Lord,
for he is highly exalted.
Both horse and driver
he has hurled into the sea.

“The Lord is my strength and my defense;
he has become my salvation.
He is my God, and I will praise him,
my father’s God, and I will exalt him.
The Lord is a warrior;
the Lord is his name…


“The Lord reigns
for ever and ever.”

God was the champion story of Mary mother of Jesus as He sang a song. Luke 1: 46-50
“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…

God was the champion story of David as He Sang thousands song. Some of them are in book of Psalms

God is the champion of your story , your miracle , your healing.

Even in our pain and struggle God still is same , the champion of our broken life.

God will be the champion of our story , regardless of our doubts. Regardless of our current judgement , regardless of how good or bad our situation be.

Singing . Running. Resting

The days are slower than before. God is closer than before. A solitude place is our home. Thank God,  But we have best technology these days. We can listen to the music right away. We can read the electronics books without hesitation on our smart devices ( as much as i love paper book).

Singing 

The best thing i could ever do in the quarantine time, Sing a worship song in the morning , Do a quick run in the afternoon and rest for the evening.  I was singing ” Is He Worthy? by Chris Tomlin and I offer my life by Don Moen “. Let’s listen together those.

And I Offer my life by Don Moen ( i really love this song –  too much 😍)

What are you singing today?

Are you going to worship God today?

Running 

To be honest my main hobby was not running ( may it won’t be after virus released ). My main sport is football  and it will be and it is in my DNA 😁 indeed. If you put me between dating and footbaling which one you choose , i’ll go to football . I know i know. don’t judge me – it is not that extreme. It is one of my passion. So… RUNNING. I forgot! I am talking about running. I am taking one year my running habit serious. I mean at least 2-3 times a week. Interestingly, I found it fun. Especially after finishing the run; The sweating part!!! I know but when you stopped the run , you feel so much fresh- I like that freshness part.

I managed to run 7.6 run today. Can you believe it? + An extra 2km walking distance. So good. So sweaaaat !

IMG_20200419_182032_186

If you haven’t run before , maybe this is the time for you now! start with joggling. I encourage you do it and comment me how was your run.

What are you going to do today?

Resting 

After a long day , I’ve got to rest and relax ! I’ve done my singing , I’ve done my run, now time to read a book and write some words and take a small meal  ! As God after 6 days work rested ! I’ve rested! You feel some contentment. A joy of success mission : ). Now i am going beautifully sleep after God given rest for today.

How are you going to rest?

Rest in God’s promises.

Tuesday Devotion 14 April 2020 / Hold on

Dear beloved friends and followers . Thank you for being with us for 21 days devotions. I am truly blessed to have you here. I am so thankful i was able to share the goodness of our Father and encourage us all. The main theme of my devotions were to hold on.

20200405_001152.jpg

****

Hold on and don’t let go of Jesus in your life. In the rain , In the storm and in any situation hold on to his great presence. Everything will fade way , only the true love of God will be alive in you.

Hold on , if it means to wait for a year . Hold on, if it means to wait for years and years. Keep warm your innermost being with his loving arms. As David says “Wait for the LORD; be strong and take heart and wait for the LORD.” (Psalms 27 : 14 ). 

Take a deep breath..

Wait for the Lord..

Be strong..

Take Heart..

and wait for the Lord..

We meant to do this before , We are meant to do this now, We will do this for tomorrow.  Do not listen to enemies’ lies. Do not listen what other people will think. HOLD ON THE TRUTH of JESUS. To His promises , To His Glory , To Whom is LIFE.

Hold on to HOPE.  Think whatever is right whatever is true and whatever is noble and worthy of think . Refill yours with the HOLY SPIRIT. With His Power and With His Majesty.

With Praise and Prayers.

****

Sunday Devotion 12 April 2020 / HE has Risen

He is not here! He has Risen.

He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay. Mathew 28 : 6

Those words of Angel at the tomb of Jesus were shocking to the ears of the women. Early , on Sunday morning the biggest miracle of human had happened. A big victory for our souls! He rose from death , He is alive now and forever.

The resurrection Sunday brought a life full of excitement, and the dead bones of mine got life in it. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.(John 3 :17). I am thanking God that His Son Saved me. Jesus meant this by dying and raising from the death.

Saturday Devotion 11 April 2020 / The Saturday of Silence

” Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?” ( Matt 27 : 46 )

That was the last words of Jesus on the Cross.

There was darkness over all the land. It was a different time of the year. A time that whole humanity were waiting for to happen. Father knew that time. But it was a time of silence for Him. Saturday of Silence was so heavier than before.

20200405_001152.jpg

Jesus’s words echoes into heaven. I am reading the Bible and these words are echoing into my heart. But this echo, is echo of resurrection and victory over the sin. Jesus brought this to this new generation. Our 21 century , our 22 century – all centuries need Jesus and his victory.

That darkness was not  the end of line – But the empty tomb shown lightness to all of us. Brought hope to our hopeless life. Brought life to our lifeless bodies. Brought light to our darkness nights. The Saturday of Silence.

Thank you Jesus for your life, Thank you that you died on the cross for me. Thank you for your endless forgiveness and love. I am so glad that the waiting will be over on Sunday morning / the day of your resurrection. The next day of Silence will bring new life. The old will be gone and new will come.

Friday Devotion 10 April 2020 / At the Cross

20200405_001152.jpg

Jesus has been Crucified on the cross. This is a day Jesus died on the cross for me and you and for the all humanity. His passion , His mission , His life saved us today for an eternal life with him. At the cross , we see a victory , A good Jesus who never fails . Let us read from Mother Teresa as she called it ” Prayer of the stations of the Cross”

” Jesus lives His Passion today in the suffering, in the hungry, in the handicapped- in that child who eats a piece of bread crumb, because when that piece of bread is finished, there will be no more, and hunger will come again. There is a station of the cross. Let us be there , Lord, with that child.

Jesus lives His passion today in the thousands who die not only for a piece of bread, but for a little bit of love, of recognition. That is a station of the cross. Let us be there, Lord, with those who are dying for love.

Jesus lives His passion today in the fall of the young people who, as jesus did, fall again and again. Let us be there Lord.

Jesus lives His passion today in the homeless people in the parks , the alcoholics and the drug-addicted. Let us not be on of those who look and do not see. Instead , Lord, let us be there at that station of the cross.

  • At Prayer with Mother Teresa , Eileen Egan

 

Meditate the Cross of Jesus, His passion , His love , His life and let us be there at that station of the cross.

Thursday Devotion , 9 April 2020 / Rejoice

Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice.
Philippians 4:4 ESV

This is a full delight to unbroken gladness in the Lord. This kind of delight have Joy in the sorrow too. We are called to rejoice in sadness and happiness. Yes , we cry with those are crying , we smile and laughter with those are happy. We have Joy in the Lord regardless of the circumstances . A full eternal joy within. St.Paul is telling to Philippians, ” always have our heavenly Father divine presence of Joy within you , I am telling you have this joy. And be very glad for his glory.”

2 year ago in my post “keep smiling joy is our portion ” I encouraged all to have Joy season in and out.

When the pain hit us hard and wants to steal our heart, have Joy , in another word St.Paul is saying to us. Mostly Joy comes with peace as Romans 15 : 13 talks about it. We have this great reason to feel joy , and to be very delighted. And no one here on earth can take this away from us. This bundle of Joy is for us as the follower of Christ. We have Joy of the Lord , we have Him , we have whom has created the all things. We have his peace with full assurance of His Glory.

Let’s meditate on this . B e S t i l l and talk to God. Let Him know How much his presence gives you Joy and Peace. Then reJoy’c in it.

Written By Dariush Youkhaneh

Invite your friends to join with us. We are so much happy that Meditating on God’s word can keep our Joy full in Him. I am glad you are here. Truly am. Thank you and Love you.❤

Wednesday Devotion 8 April 2020 / Newness of life


Easter time are my memorable times of the year. The death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, the Cross , the Love his shown to the world and personally to me is truly remarkable. He sealed my heart to His forever heart, when I personally known Him as my saviour. Don’t get me wrong , I am still getting to know Him, looking forward of his Presence. I’ve experienced an unexplainable joy within me. My soul got to fly.


I need to know what’s the Cross mean for me in a deeper level again. For some people is foolish thing , but for us.. the Cross means victory, place were Newness of life was born , a place were God saw how deeply we need and depend to Him.


As we are walking to the Hill were Jesus was crucified , let’s think How this blooded Cross brought Grace and Love to our life. Although the victory is ahead as He rose from death. As Romans 6 : 4 says let’s walk in newness of life. A life that Christ paid a heavy cost on the Cross. Let’s walk into purpose of heaven were Jesus says to Father “ I brought a new life for them , the old has gone , forgive them “.

Tuesday Devotion 7 April 2020 / It is good we are here

And Peter said to Jesus, “Rabbi, it is good that we are here. Let us make three tents, one for you and one for Moses and one for Elijah.”
Mark 9: 5
On Mount of transfiguration , Peter, James and John with Jesus there. JESUS face is shining like no other. He suddenly suggested to make tent. It is back to us , we feel good , we feel alright , we feel to tell God whats the best for us. The reality is God knows what our needs are. He knows How rescue us. He knows what our world really need now. Our only place to lean on is Jesus and Listen to Him. His shining face would be enough for all of us. Me , and you and each one of us need Jesus. To make us more humble. To take away our pride and make us more like Himself.
Yes it is good that we are with Jesus on mountain top. What’s stopping us to loving him more ? As nothing can and will separate us from the Love of God. Let’s meditate on this word , what would you say to Jesus when you are with Him on the Mount of transfiguration?

Monday Devotion 6 April 2020 / Untie Your heart, Jesus is coming to Jerusalem of your heart

Jesus was on the way to Mount Olives. He is on colt and People are Praising Him for things he has done. They didn’t know what’s his kingdom about to do. They thought , He is going to establish a kingdom now and they can be free from Romans empire. Jesus established a forever kingdom on earth and heaven. His kingdom is not such a short time perish. He came to untie the world of opportunities , untie a new life with Him forever , untie a faith and hope in Him.

If we are not going to cry out and untie the bondage of this world. Jesus answered, “I tell you, if these were silent, the very stones would cry out.” Please untie your heart to this wonderful God. Praise Him for who He is. If we don’t the stones will. Are we not more precious then stones? Break these stones within and lose your self in His presence. Jesus rod that colt for me and you. Grab the book of Luke and see chapter 19 of it , See how our Lord humbly entered to Jerusalem.

I am going to untie my Jerusalem heart to let him my Jesus control. I will let the king of heaven enter it. Yes ,I give him my all. I am in awe of your beauty Jesus. Please UNLCOK all your treasure within me. You are the peace of this broken boat.

We meant to Praise Him. We meant to seek him. Jesus wept for our heart (Jerusalem). He is going to clean it perfectly. Make it white as snow. Are you ready to truly be changed?

Friday Devotion , 3 April 2020 / Brightness

20200405_001152.jpg

I am certain of this, God’s open door, would be a way of light into my world. I can confess that I am blind in most things, although I can see with the normal eyes , but my spiritual eyes need to be equipped. Yes , I need spiritual eyes to see the light of things around. My only guidance , Jesus, help me to see the things I need to see. I need Godly sight to be led in a way of Him.

As Jesus said the greatest one among you must be your servant.To be that , my servanthood character need change , need humbleness and requires brightness within me. Not empty word , I need to be bright to my self , learning to make my days bright , in that way I can shine for heaven and earth.

Then, strange things will be put aside. A brave heart must be made within me. A strong Godly peace which came from the Holy Spirit changes me inside out. To be a bright person here , in this time of history. I am His and He is mine.

As new season kicked in. I am so glad that God of all power , empowers me to be like Him. He puts me here and charged me with the Power of Holy Spirit. I can do this God’s power is within me. I can help myself and others to know the true knowledge of God. People turn to others idols , People go and search answers in other strange things. But , we have the power of Holy Spirit. We are his body. His childeren to pass the goodness of the Lord to the next.

In the fourth month of 2020 , April. Let call God. Let s pray this season God wipes all our sins by His blood. Let this April be the symbol of awareness. To be aware of our condition and how to go to fight it. God in every season is with us. As April name comes from Latin word , which means “to open”. Let us with an open heart embrace God’s greatness for us and others. Come and begin this new start and open your mouth of Thanksgiving.

In which part of our life we need to grow? I hope as Solomon says ” a faithful person will abound with blessings”. Let this be. A faithful of whom grow and open his heart of gratitude. We got the Power to be so.

Tuesday Devotion 31 March 2020 / Clay in Potter’s hands

20200405_001152.jpg

We are the Clay. He is the potter. We are on earth , He is in Heaven. His hands are not short as He is able to make a great shape of this Clay. Do you know how does a potter shape the clay ? The potter first form the clay to desire of his/her own , after the desired shape created , the potter will heat them in a high tempratures ( 500 to 1600c) then the permanent of changes will be done by increasing the strength and stability of the clay.

If we are on high pressure of difficulty of our life around , it means God is shaping us to His desired will. He is given us strength and patience. I love that what James says it well in his writings : “But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing “ James 1 : 4

If me and you are on high pressure of pain and suffering of this unjust world. Please bear in mind what James said. Remember how the Potter shaped its clay. Remember what God desiring you to be? Perfect and complete.

Monday devotion 30 March 2020 / You won’t leave us

20200405_001152.jpg

We are honoured to know God. God’s long long time secret has been given to us. The human wanted to know this. But we have this privilege today to be friend of Jesus. He came and died for us on the Cross that we can be with him forever. How dare are we thinking that he left us? Asking how? By your worrying , by your action of not leaving everything in His hand. We put another nail on his body.

He is our friend, He wants to carry of our unstoppable non sense world, replacing it with Grace and Mercy. He won’t leave us , injured and hurt here. Sunrise to sunrise all we need to do is seeking his face. Look up the great treasure of heaven.

He hold me close to his heart. I just want to love you more and more Father. There is nothing can separate us. His rich presence wipes all my poor weakness and satisfy this thirsty heart of mine and He assures me that He stays with me Here with all chaos around and comfort this raging mind. Thank you for keeping me close to yours.
