I have prayed a prayer many many years ago : ” oh God if you are still around let not this happen” Perhaps ,He answered with a whisper of the Holy Spirit. He turned my complain to acceptance and peace and that particular time with a double blessing. When you are in a situation and do not know what to do and the cripple of fear not allowing you to make a right decision , oh please know that God is there. He is there always , all the time.
When the nation of God rescued from the Egypt, and the people of God felt God is not with them on the way and left them alone in the desert, He was still there! I don’t want to know what my feeling says about this! I am assure and trust my Lord that He is omnipotent and Has my life in Control.
The ancient people wanted to be closed to gods. That is why they made statue and brought them into their homes, they wanted to feel secure and safe. But the real God is not in Men’s made thing. We have a God who knows everything. He is name is ” I AM “. ” I AM ” is present and active and working in our life.
He knows every detail of my life , that is why I care about my God. He did not leave me by my own here, figuring out about what is the meaning of life. He is my life. Jesus Christ gave his life for me that I can be with Him forever. He forgives and loves without limit.
The God of all knowledge is still around and calling us to come home. He does not see what university you got your PHD or doctorate or what title you have , All He wants is a pure heart. He is here and bringing peace to our chaos.
I got it . I got it when trouble comes , turn my face to Him and telling :” Hey Father , Can you see it ? ” He comforts me and saying ” Yes , I can see , I am with you , I am still here ” .
I started to see more . ” Hey dear Father : Can you see this and that family trouble ? Are you with them? why did that happen ? ” God shining and says :” Yes, I see them , yes I know them , yes I am there ”
What do we do ? We continue walk with thankfulness, We continue believe what makes God smile , we continue do what is right and just , We continue live in the Spirit. until He comes with His glory.
My dear friends , Have you read my new book?
Hope in Corona Time
Timothy Keller pointed out the friendship meaning in 7 keys as I posted in my Instagram post (@hhhigh-blog):
1- Is Constancy
2- Love at all times
3- Is Transparency and Candor
4- Encourage and Affectionately affirm one another
5- Is Faithful
6- Heals you
7- Become wiser together
How good is to have friends ? How awesome to have loyal friends? It is rare , It is hard to find those. And how much is more harder to be the one.
Little confess from me, I am not the one! The time machine took me to another place, every time I made it , The time machine stolen from me. May , I need to blame no one , even time. I am honest. I do my best, I always wanted God make me a better friend , a better man and a better human. I forget sometimes to be a loyal friends of a friend. The thing is here what criteria we put front.
I am thinking about this , I am praying to God and asking him about How was Jesus friendship with the Father. And, the more importance fact How Jesus saw the world around Him. Why am i bringing God in this? The reason is this , we can not truly understand the meaning of a friendship before being a good friend with God. I said good friend! God is a loyal friend , we are not !
The most loyal friendship in this world , is the weakest in the eyes of the Lord. But this is not meant our human friendship is pointless. If you draw a line between human and God , the line would be the friendship line. God need to be in middle of our human friendship. With Him our human / human friendship gets meaning.
If you see throughout the Bible, It is built on a friendship. God himself and God to human.
On top of God’s friendship with himself , He was thinking about us :
The Lord God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him.” Genesis 2 : 18
I believe God is building our human friendship. He has already taken every step to build again this broken friendship between himself and human. Now , there is no more ” friendship line ” but the Cross.
The Cross is ultimate loving and friendship act of heavenly Father to us. We are in an active friendship with God now , or at least God is ready to be our friend with an open arm. He comes and knock the door of our hearts for a real and true friendship. No matter where we are , what we done or in what stage of life and season we are in , He forgives and wants to be our eternal friend.
Then , Think about it. You are never alone. The time you accepted and believed in Him , you entered to the circle of the God Father , the God Son and the God Holy Spirit.
Hallelujah and Thank God for this. He is a true friend that everyone on earth looking for.
Friendship with God

The Humans are so complicated creatures. They are completely different, they are complex and at the same time simple. They are smart but in stupidity level reaching to heaven. They can cry,laughter, smile and be neutral in one minute.
They sometimes need a hug or kiss badly , and desiring to have a relationship soon. Their smart side says they have control over everything and their naive side needs a high power to help. They do not want anyone in anyway to be higher then us , because we think (at least ) we know everything. Some of humans are selfish and some are humble. I have seen human like angels on earth. I’ve seen them , I promise.
Those, they left their everything to help others. They have put their crowns on the ground and followed the way of Angels on this planet.
Oh Humans ! They create history and then they manipulate or delete them after. They are mixed ! Kind , stubborn , loving , aggressive and so changeable! They love law in order and they hate it in other side of coin. Who we are really? Or who we really think we are?
To be controlled by human nature results in death; to be controlled by the Spirit results in life and peace.
Romans 8:6 GNB
As much as I know we can not fly with our flesh at least for now! But , assume we , as humans got eveything in control ! But still we are unable to understand what is the real Love in order can go deep down of our souls to know who we really are!!! King Solomon had this feeling ! He felt his got everything in his hand at the same time He understood what is meaning of nothing in everything.
In the inner human soul , there is a need of community and Love. How hard would be to live on an island alone. That is why !! Christ came along to connect us to himself and each other. That is why we need a supernatural power over us. What does human need is a heavenly connection with their creators. We are heavenly-made humans , if we know and reliase that , We are not from here originally! God’s breathe came through our lungs. And He made us ، and only returning back to Him will complete the meaning of our BEING. This is where Jesus said ” Come to me ” ” You are mine and I am yours ” ” I am the Way , I am Life and I am the Truth “.
We have legs , but struggling to walk to the truth. We bave eyes but blind to see the way. We do not need an extra leg and eyes , but we need to cleanse ourselves and use the current ones. God made us beautiful already. Yes , with all ugliness we are beautiful enough to conquere other side.
There is Hope, there is love.
Can I reach to you, wherever you are right now and reading this post? Can I say , we wouldn’t need to be complicated. We wouldn’t need to go to another place to find ourselves. Our true identity is in ” I AM “.
Dear 2060 year generation ,
I hope this letter finds you well! I am writing to you from Australia, we are in year 2020.
I love to point out some of the things happening here (at your past). You may heard about all things happened. You may be either winner side or loser side, the importance matter is your father survived and in this year 2020 a lot of things has changed things around. I came out of my mother’s land and settled in a far island , right in a gold sun shine country. Through the journey heaps of things happened. Your generation may look like technology, but you may know now, even if robots has been created with emotions , they can not replace the real love and sympathy of a real person.
If you have not been introduced to your creator , who made us all, let me tell you about Him. The paper Bible may be rare to you , but really I have got a few number of paper Bibles at my bookshelf , one of them actually been given to me by my pastor at my water baptism in my mother’s land. Let me to define the Hope. The bot can not know this. Hope is something we wait for , we can’t see it now but we wait for it. We wait for Jesus , whom the Father sent to rescue us. I am sure by now a lot of saints and real belivers are in His presence. We believe a life after death, they won’t teach you this in the school anymore. We believe there is a life after death for us , we believe our real home is a place in heaven. Not a place made by human hand by any means.
Dear 2060 year readers , God of heavens and earth made us united , with his unconditional love. Trust in Him. Not the human programming application. Not to the machines made by human brain.
“Praise the Lord, all Gentiles; praise him, all peoples!” And again, Isaiah says, “A descendant of Jesse will appear; he will come to rule the Gentiles, and they will put their hope in him.”
Romans 15:11-12 GNB
God says, I will be with you till the end of earth. Yes , till the time you are on earth , as I am / was. Love is above machines. Love is above technology. Real love of God surpasses all things on earth. We have encountered with famine , earthquake, protests , corruptions , death, coronavirus Covid19 , bushfire , floods , volcano’s and many other difficulties. I am sure those things still exist in your time. Would you trust God as we did? He holds you. He loves you , He clings His heart to you. In your worst time ,He is ready to be your friend. Talk to Him , not to the machine! Be an example of loving kind person in your generation. Be you , a brave person whom everybody can lean on. Be a leader. Be Jesus on earth. I know you can do it as we did it. Spend your time wisely as the time is short , very short. Read your Bible even it meant to be through screens. Teach the Bible. Be a right and just Father , mother , wife and husband. Be light in the darkness. Love and respect your parents. May the Holy Spirit helps you to understand your current time better and make you close to Son Jesus Christ and the Father.
I have Hope you learn How to Pray everyday without stopping.
Our Jesus will come soon. Stay strong and have Faith.

Title : Hope in Corona Time
Release date : 23/07/2020
Genre : non-fiction inspirational
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!
The ugly face of Corona was nothing compares the ugliest face of tyranny on the earth. This earth was made beautiful. And It is beautiful, still! The Spirit of God did not give us the spirit of timid but Power and beauty.
Happy Pentecost day dear! ” You shall receive Power ” ” a fresh air”
I pray that the fresh air of Spirit and His wind of health come and cover whole earth again ! Cleanse our impurity in all degrees , and takes away all injustice in the world.
As the deciples of Christ , WAIT for the power of Holy Spirit , I pray God give us the Spirit of WAIT and patience. I am humble for this.
I pray for a fresh air over all households in any background or region they might be.
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.
There is salvation into this fresh air.
There is forgiveness into this fresh air.
There is love into this fresh air.
There is Jesus into this fresh air.
There is hope into this fresh air.
There is faith into this fresh air.
There is mercy and just into this fresh air.
There is healing into this fresh air.
Which one are you seeing now? Which, do we need most ?
Oh , how needy we are ! How awesome is God ! How beautiful is Spirit , How great is Jesus !
The Fresh Air of Spirit come upon us.
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 :
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?

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.”
” 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.”
A legacy of faith, things I learned from my father, Billy Graham, by Ruth Graham. Page 52-54
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! 😁😀
A milestone has been achieved ! Thank you to my beloved plus 1000 follower here at wordpress blog.
To celebrate this and for this very achievement reason , all my ebooks will be +50% off only for a limited time ( 12-05-2020).
Here is how you are going to redeem your deal :
Thank God for this. I have hope this blog is a blessing for each one of you.
Please feel free send that link and code to your friends and family.
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
If a ( person) has not order within him,
He cannot spread order about Him.
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.

Why do i recommend this book? Insightful , mindfull , wisdom and self improvement.
God is the champion of my story.
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.
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).
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?
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 !
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?
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.
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.
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..
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.

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.

” 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.
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.

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

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.

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.❤
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 “.

Sharing is caring ! Bless someone with sharing this post.
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?

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?
