Nature has a story to tell, a new fresh start, don’t delay getting into the nature

I barely could juggle my foot when I walked on a long iron-like bridge in the middle of a jungle back home. My brother used to walk on it quickly; even he had a drink or two. My older cousin always looked after him when he couldn’t keep himself straight for a moment. We used to go out for a nature day call; every family gathered and celebrated and have a meal in the middle of nature and being together; I loved it, because there was such power when we gathered as family.
I have always loved nature, don’t make me wrong, everyone loves nature; I am very connected to it and understand the fresh smell of wild strawberries. Maybe spending time in nature in my hometown was why my love grew in being there. I learned the power of the family and how it is essential to be bound together. Nature taught me well.
Back to our reality, As I walked through nature in Australia, I remembered how faithful is God. I came a long way, I came from an anonymous past to a known-now present with a new identity which something makes me: me, who God loves. I took the below photos with a view of a new fresh start. It will inspire you and it warmed my heart :

Have a plan to go in nature, walk and enjoy the fresh air, and hear the sound of it. What will you learn? Stillness, kindness.

Let God do the Miracle for You, You just be IN it

There is another fascinated story in the Bible, right in the first King book. Please don’t go anywhere, Because we are going deep down of it and learn some lessons, which hopefully would be beneficial for us. Give your full attention and read through the below lines, of course, you are allowed to take a cup of tea and enjoy the reading 🙂

There is no other story in the Bible that a prophet or someone can stop the rain except Elijah, and he is from Tishbe in Gilead. Tishbe was in today’s Jorden country, and throughout Jordan, temperatures rise to 30 and even worse, the south of the Jorden can reach as high as 37 to 40 degrees Celsius. God took an excellent initiative step and suggested Elijah go across the Jordan river where the Cherith Creek is, Jordan valley, as bibleatlas.org brought us the map. Elijah was so familiar with the area, he stayed there, and God fed him by ravens, day and night. God prepared the most needed item for Elijah, Water from the creek and food for above.

King Ahab and his commanders are looking for Elijah. The rain stops pouring to the country of Jordan; as a result, only Elijah have the king-key of praying to the Living and loving Lord to have mercy upon, that the rain would resume. The sweetness of the creek was good till that dried up also. Elijah looked around; it was dry and waterless. And it was time to get direction; His soul was on fire, The Living Lord sent him, He was sure about everything. As he was in prayer, the Lord spoke to him again to move to the town of Zarephath.
“Would you please bring me a cup of water?” Elijah asked a widow near the town centre. God already prepared the way for Elijah; God spoke to a widow beforehand to give him food. The very unusual thing is here: the widow herself didn’t have any food left except a handful of flour and a little olive oil. God didn’t choose a rich man or woman to help Elijah. He is the God of miracle behind the miracle, glory behind the glory; nothing can stop the living God, for his plan and porpuses are greater. He chooses the weakest; he chooses the unwanted; he chooses those who starve to death; he chooses the outcasted ones- they are the real deal for God, those who don’t have anything to offer Him.


"Everything will be fine," Elijah said.


How can it be? Runaway from home, the King and others are looking for him and thirsty for the water at the foreign town asking a widow to give him a cup of water.
This is the same question we might ask God. We see ourselves in the struggles – not ending, the finance problem, the family issue, the health struggle, all are coming towards fast, without delay, and we are reaching to the point of “really God? Where are you?” All those obstacles seem real and legitimate, but God is greater than any difficulties we may face today and tomorrow. Elijah had confidence in this because he believed his living God was a provider, unknown future? Maybe. Known God? Definitely.

Elijah had security in his heart that the living God would look after him; it does not matter where we would be or what situation we are stuck in; he is there- ready to provide.


With a handful of flour and a little bit of olive oil- a miracle will be there; the widow and her son never ran out of it. Do our flour and oil need a miracle? Do we need a talent? never.
We are chosen already- our job is to be in the miracle, available as a sun in the sky.

“You are God’s prophet!” the woman replied. “Now I know that you really do speak for the Lord.” ( 1 Kings 17: 24 )

What are we waiting for God to do for us? I am waiting for something; everyone has a waiting list of things that He only can provide. Offer them to God – let him do the miracle for you- you just be in it.

A Prayer for the World

A prayer for the world-to the King , Most High.

By all means, this is a prayer for your world. 

Father, you have created a perfect world. Lord, we messed up and gone on our ways. We did not listen to you. We did not follow you; we followed the philosophy of your people; instead of you, we let people take the free will from your land and bound us with the earthly things. I am here to pray for myself first, Lord, because I am your world; that is why you died on the cross.” God loved the world;” God loved me – a sinner that I can be free of all this chaos. Do you listen to the news, Father? Do you have a TV in heaven? Father, do you watch soccer? We use kindle to read the Bible these days; the people you created found a way to travel the space, to the moon. The gap between rich and poor getting wider and wider, the percentage of hunger’s people are as many as 811 million. Father, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. As you will rest in heaven, please have your peace among us, peace for the countries currently at war, peace for our nation, peace for our cities, peace for our streets. Lord, we did wrong, but you haven’t given upon us. You don’t want our praise; you don’t want our gifts and abilities; all you want is us. We turn to you, where our restless hearts can have joy, where our minds can sleep like a baby. Let people know how much you love them. Power? You got it all. Money? You got all the wealth. Wisdom? You are the source of it.

You are the Spirit; we are the flesh. We come and go, but you stay forever; we pray for the world and the world around us.

Teach us how to love you? Teach us to be just to people and do the right according to your will. We are here at the station of prayer. Let this be a bridge and reach to your ears. The global issue is on us- rescue us from our intelligence. We need your knowledge; our brain is limited – but your is – oh God, eternal and unlimited source of everything. We are in urgent need of you, it is the same urgent gathering of the upper room of your disciples that day. And your Church, evolving in the story, don’t let them make it like the world; it is better to be like YOU, Yahwah, my God my Lord. Thank you, Holy Spirit. Remember the women, the children, and the aged people, who will shelter the weak without you? Your protection is most needed. 

The world needs you. Be an umbrella of hope for many who put their trust in you.

Father, Let me do my part of help to my brother, my sister, an unknown and guest person, a broken who needs healing. Soften my heart for a reason of living for others. Let me plant kindness and forgiveness in my farm’s land. Where is my farm’s land? It is where I live. I know Father, you read this letter of my heart; if not, someone will hand you this, where I rejoice that time, because the King, Most High heard me. 

This prayer is not only my cry but my friends, my neighbour, my city and the nations. In your Son Jesus Name. Amen.

Inspirational walking, Rest in the shade of the trees

My today’s walk was indeed a charming and a quick good treat to my soul. When I saw the trees and greens around, the sense of love increased in me. I was impressed with the look of it as someone painted 🎨 for a specific time and hour. Look at the below photo gently, what do you see?

A gentle look makes peace into our hearts. This looks a paint, but it is not, it is a man walking with a camera and capturing the moment.

It gives you courage and it makes your eyes green. I love the way sub-branches are fallen into each other, a wonder of beauty. I have been energised again 🌻.

It is not done here, walk with me, let me show you around, I pray as I walk, and sometimes I don’t 😐 and I will be lost in the frame of beauty, the beauty of Spring. I guess, you know what I am talking about, it is like daydreaming. I just stopped for a moment and looked to the below :

I was daydreaming, the wind of spring took me to the top of the tree, I guess, that is me in the middle of the screen, looking right and left all greens.

When we walk through them, it will wash all our ugliness off in a second. No place for anything else, except ‘the style of nature ‘ peek. Innocently look will put us on the right path. The journey is long but that frame of love is there to inspire us. Dear, walk with me, let’s be saturated at the moment :

Dear Walk

Rest in the shade of this tree while water is brought to wash your feet.
Genesis 18:4 NLT

Tell me how did you spend your weekend?

Smile better than smiling face with smiling eyes emoji 😊Life is better when you smile

We are heading for the long weekend in Sydney. It is Labour day on Monday. Thanks for this day off; after a heavy rainfall yesterday, the sun is out and shining every corner today.

Have you tried having a smiling face with smiling eyes? That’ fun. try now😊

I mean, it is so much better if you smile; your laugh brings such joy to your own heart and the people around you. There is so much bitterness and opposites out there that wants to stop you from your beauty. The lie of the enemy shall not hinder you, shall not limit you. You are born to rejoice. Yeah, if you travel once to Sydney, you know what a beautiful city is. I love Spring and Summer, but don’t get me wrong, all seasons are lovely in their lense. I wish I had glasses to wear and keep this beauty on my eyes and heart forever, don’t you want to? 

You can smile; just give it a try. You don’t lose anything, but you gain.

You know, we have passed three months in lockdown. I was thinking about this, we are in lockdown, but the birds are free, we are in lockdown, but the season is changing, we are in lockdown, but the world evolving so much. But one thing has never changed, at least in my life, I don’t know about you, which is we need our Creator; we need Him in our physical life and our spiritual life. His un-ending love covers are every aspect of life. Why am I ended with God always? Because he is our fountain of life. As I am typing this for you on my laptop’s keyboard, I pray in my heart that you know God of all seasons, keep the smile of heaven on your lips regardless of your situation. I am sure where you are now, whichever season you are in, you can see the beauty with your own eyes. Life is better when you smile😊- better than smiling face with smiling eyes emoji. 

Write somewhere I have decided to smile from now. It doesn’t give me a good feeling only but confidence and assurance. 

Can you repeat this after me: I smile, I love, I pray, I arise, I go because, in all of this, God is with me.

Smile always.

Fill your stomach with Truth and eat the word of God

” Fill your stomach with this,” he said.

And when I ate it, it tasted as sweet as honey in my mouth. {Ezekiel 3 : 3]

How can we eat the word of God? No, I am not saying ‘break’ it; I am saying how to ‘ eat them’. The thought of eating the word of Truth dropped in my soul last night. Believe it or not, I was repeating Ezekiel 3 without knowing it – as a result, I searched the Bible to find the verse talks about eating the word. Here we go: 

The voice said to me, “Son of man, eat what I am giving you-eat this scroll! Then go and give its message to the people of Israel.” [Ezekiel 3:1]

We are filling our stomachs with a lot of things during our lifetime. One thing, God is asking us today to be filled with His Word and Truth. Eating the Truth means eating Jesus’s body and drinking His Blood. Let no men lie to you.

He broke the bread, gave it to the disciples, and said, “Take, eat; this is My body.” Jesus said. There is eternal life offered to us with eating Jesus and drinking his precious Blood. Let’s see how can we eat; we talked about it is crucial to have a fest of Truth. The below are some of the examples of filling our stomachs with Truth:

1- Walking with Jesus

2- Reading the Bible

3- Memorise and eat the verses daily 

3- Communion and fellowship with believers

4- Praying ( in times of need and not time of need/ all the time)

5- Talking with Jesus

6- Be with Jesus add Listen to the Holy Spirit

7- Give all our mind, heart and soul to Him 

Eating Jesus means being present actively with Him and intentionally thank him for his Truth within us. Of course, that comes with trusting that what we eat will heal us whole, and that is why drinking his Blood will wash our sinful Blood and make it pure as it goes through our veins. Our cells enjoy it, our mind appreciates it, our hearts are glad in it, and our soul is dancing with it. ” Son of man, eat what I am giving you- eat this scroll!!” Some thinking, this is a magic food, some others thinking is unreal. And they fill their stomachs with other junk stuff of this world. We had enough to be filled with the lies of enemies—enough travelling in the desert without water. We read and listen to the word of Truth now. We eat them and enjoy having everlasting life with Jesus. Carrying the Truth is our goal; this is our purpose. I mark today as a new generation’s army to fill my whole with the Truth of Christ, my saviour.

Search me , O God

There is one thing I am asking God today: S E A R C H ME

Declare the below prayer over your situation, He is with you, wherever you are. You are loved.

Oh God, I need your presence, fill me with your loving love, that I can sing a new song, pure my mouth that I can praise you with a shout of joy. No Lord, I don’t wish you to search me – I want you to search me, cleanse me, fire me with your love. I am not listening to the enemy, I’m here to pour out my heart, on my knees, I look to you God, to YOU. Have you forgotten your loved ones? No Lord, I repeat your promises in my life again and again- this is enough. Your promises holding me Lord, your care look after me, It’s okay I may be in trouble, I am walking through it with your hands. I am changed because of you, not because of the time, not because of the others – it is all because of You Lord, Yahweh. Thank You. You picked me out of trouble, and I am on a hill of light, with you. I praise you. Search me…

How can you be in the world of chaos? Can you be like Jesus? Can you be in Peace? Can you be in Love?

It was two years ago – we’ve been free of restriction—the world with no wild Covid-19 virus was at least freedom. We could go to Church, and We could go to our schools and workplaces. We could go to restaurants. Now, we almost forget about how and when was the last time we gather as a community! 

Let’s turn off those voices and see what and how can we be like in the chaotic world?

If Jesus was here now- what he would do? Was he able to move around the city by city and preach the gospel of the kingdom of God? 

How can be in this world of unbelief? Everyone looking for their benefit. A country is taking over and goes in a completely wrong direction. The distance is getting more and more between families. How can one be the agent of peace in the world of chaos? 

Being Jesus on earth:

The very step of every human is to be like Jesus. Being like Jesus means to obey what he commands. There is no religious mask over a like-Jesus person. There is no double-minded here and there. They are not perfect but trying to be like Jesus. They are quick confessers and know others win the race is essential, and in the meantime, they keep their race in the eyes of Jesus. They know nothing can satisfy their thirsty souls but Jesus himself. They are living water that flows on drylands on earth. Everyone enjoys their company. They give Love and no expectation to return. They are kind and intelligent – stay alert to destroy the scheme of the enemies. Do you want to be like Jesus on earth?

Jesus said: ” Remain in me as I remain in you.” [John 15:4 ]

Being in Peace with:

If you are in Jesus – then you are the source of peace. You are the agent of peace; everyone wants to know what is the secret of your heart. They watch you secretly and learn from you- the way you speak attracts people and gives the audience wisdom and peace. You are in the centre of God’s will; it seems you are in the right place with the right people at the right time. You are content with your soul. You don’t look for answers; you are the answer! Because Jesus himself is in you. Peace beyond human understanding is in and with you. The only things that come and go into your heart are Light, Love, and Peace. So, you are at peace with everyone everywhere and yourself! 

“Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts.” [Colossians 3:15]

Being in Love with:

Love is not the four letters anymore. It is Love in the act. It is not a private love, but it is public – for everyone. It is for the family, friends, neighbour and nation and any race and tribe. Love does not know the colour! The only thing Love knows – it is softening and changing the hearts! If you are in Love with God – indeed in the right way through Jesus and peace is in you. Love keeps things in peace and changes destiny for the better. Love hold marriages stronger and turn a troubled teen into a loving child for the parents; Love does not know the borders. There is no limitation. 

” Love must be sincere.” [ Romans 12: 9 ]

What is your solution ? What quality can you offer to our broken world?

If you have been with us for all 14 days of devotion – very well done to you, I trust these days been a blessing to you as it has been for me honestly. If you haven’t had a chance to join us here you go, you can read it day by day:

Day 1 – Have Hope

Day 2 – Be an example

Day 3 – MY HEART IS HAPPY

Day 4 – YOUR DOUBT = CONVICTION

Day 5 – I LOVE YOU

Day 6 – GOD IS OUR PROTECTION

Day 7 – SERVE YOURS , SERVE OTHERS = SERVING THE LIVING GOD

Day 8 – THE COUNTRY OF MOAB

Day 10 – GREETINGS FROM PAUL

Day 11 – CALL TO THE LORD, HEART PRAYER

Day 12 – YOU ARE AWESOME

Day 13 – TO GOD BE THE GLORY FOREVER

Day 14 – Psalm 23

Around 1000BC, It seems King David written down my heart prayer to God. When I open Psalms 23 – a whole new world opens to me. A shepherd boy from the town of Bethlehem and the youngest son of Jesse of the tribe of Judah where the prophet Samuel anointed him as the King of Israel. 

” The LORD is my shepherd; I shall no want.

He Maketh me to lie down in green pastures: He leadeth me beside the still waters.

He restoreth my soul:

He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; Thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies:

Thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life:

And I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever. Amen” Psalms 23

Pslams 23 – Confidently and bravely written by David. King David fought many battles; he only admitted God as his shepherd also acknowledged him as a warrior. He was not only a shepherd boy who fought and defeated Goliath – but he also softened his heart who sought His God eagerly.

When God lets you lie down on green pastures means – He looks after you, and you do not need to be worried about how do I do this, and how do I do that? God takes care of the sheep. When the sheep are thirsty- He leads them to the still and sweet waters that they can drink and their life back to them. God does not allow your bones to die because of dryness; He leads you, He found a way for you. God will open the door to you that you never expected.

He guides you in the right way. Even though you walk in the darkest places, He is with you, and you drank the living water at the still waters! And – After arriving at the still waters – He restores your soul, A rescuer came along and restored you to life. You have the Bible as your rod, and you have Faith as your staff, take them along with you- they will be your shield. God anointed you with the Holy Spirit’s oil.

So, You continue as His Goodness and Mercy will be with you every single day.

What is your task to do now? Dwelling and calming yourself in the presence of the Lord. 

” I am the good shepherd..” John 10:11

Questions to ponder: Do you know your good shepherd personally? What does mean God is my shepherd? 

Remember: He is a good shepherd.

Day 3- My heart is Happy

They all have been waiting – 120 of them, seeking and calling upon the name of the Lord. The coming of the Holy Spirit was so close- They expected an unexpected miracle to happen. But, suddenly, they saw all the elements; The fire and the thick smoke- they all needed this combination from heaven. They have seen Jesus after he resurrected from death several times- they thought we would see Jesus again in person! But God had another plan- The promised one was there- The Holy Spirit.

Day 3- My heart is happy /hh-high.com

Everyone’s heart got to fill with Joy unbelievably. It looked like all of 120 walking in heaven. They encountered an incredible experience as we read from the book of Acts chapter 2 verse seven; others when they saw it” they were all amazed at this “. not only that also” They were surprised, because, as the apostle was speaking, everyone heard in their own language.”

When the Holy Spirit comes into your lives – your heart fills with joy and happiness. You experience heaven on earth. The fire of the Holy Spirit changes you inside out. 

” The people were all amazed and confused. They asked each other, ” What is happening? “

Great things were happening; awesome things were happening; the great and glorious day of the Lord is here. Oh, How our heart is happy. We have the comforter, the peace and the loving Holy Spirit with us always.

” David said this about him: ‘ I saw the Lord before me always; he is at my right side to keep me safe. So my heart is happy, and the words I speak are words of joy. Yes, even my body will live with hope because you will not leave me in the place of death. You will not let the body of your holy one rot in the grave. You taught me how to live. You will come close to me and give me great joy.’ Psalm 16: 8-11 ” 

My dear friend, let your heart be glad, rejoice and celebrate as the holy one lives in you; the great things will happen for you; the awesome things are ahead. You are loved so much. So keep your heads held high always.

10 Promises We need to gift to Ourselves

1- Promise to be Brave

God wants you to be brave. So take the first step of faith and let your fear disappear in a sudden time. You can be bold, and you can be substantial; who said you could not? Just hold it firm, the journey may be shaky a bit, but you can walk through it happier than before. The Bible says, ” You take courage.” It did not tell you to take fear; no, you made to be brave. 

2- Promise to do Right

You are not only trying to do right – but it is your human obligation to do right. So we do the right thing when we are at work, and we do right when we are with the family at home, we do right when we are everywhere. We called to do right, not to be right only. Being right is far away from doing right. So don’t worry about others – you do right, and the rest will be in place for you. 

3- Promise to follow Jesus, no matter what.

The innermost promise to yourself. No matter what you feel, No matter where you would be and no matter what season of life you are iP – We will follow Jesus. So, Keeping God first and most – is the most top priority of our life. So it would be for every Christ-follower; they don’t follow the world and its desire, but Jesus- He is the centre of everything we do and have. The world we live in may not understand this fully, but we have the Holy Spirit to lead us through all days. Can you keep the promise in your heart?

4- Promise not to Give up

Never give up; life is hard and harsh – and that is a reality. There are loads of encouragement videos and podcasts, and books out there to lift your spirit. Don’t give up on your dreams. One day all your beautiful dreams will come true- If they desired for a good and loving way – God will open the doors for you. It may seem like nothing happening, but you do push and try again. No pain, no gain. Don’t dare give up on your faith, Don’t dare give up on God. It is time to hear him directly – it is enough to hear from this and that person; Go to him and listen to what God says to you. Can you be a person of consistency? 

5- Promise not to cease Praying

Pray, Pray and Pray – Even no answer appears. But, prayer can unlock some fantastic doors in your life. So, keep the prayer first of things, not last. The God who created you love to hear from you. He is so humble to listen to our little praying. He answers all your prayer in cry and laughter. So, go to your room, Go to the park, go for a walk, on the way in your heart, wherever you are, pray and see how God opens the door for you? Can you promise to yourself say a few words each day to God?

6- Promise to be Active (physically and spiritually )

It is time to be involved; keeping yourself moving is excellent for your physical well-being and helps unwind your mind. Spiritually activities are praying, reading the Bible, going to church, fellowship with other believers. Train your physical and spiritual muscles by practising.

7- Promise to be thankful/grateful which what I have and what I don’t.

Let it be always in our lips and heart- ” I am thankful”, ” I am grateful”. You do not need to do or be someone or somewhere to give thanks; you can give thanks right now; it does not matter which family you grew or growing – God put you there for a reason, Thank him, be grateful for your situation in your life. I know you hear it a lot, but honestly, He has a good plan for you. Thank God.

8- Promise to keep Faith Hope and Love

All comes together now, most importantly, Love. So keep these three in harmony. Have faith, keep Hope and love more. Faith to who? God saved you, that God is for you and sent his Son, Jesus, to rescue you. So keep Hope; what? Keep Hope that a great future is ahead of you and behind, that Jesus will return, that you have eternity with Him. Love more to who?

Everyone: Love friend and enemy, Love all, Love God.

9- Promise to keep improving/learn/grow and upskill in all area of my life

Does any course out there to help me? Could you do it? Does any skill you need to learn? Please do it. Do something to improve – what didn’t you know last year but you can learn this year? Always push forward; I know we can do it to a greater degree. 

10- Promise to Love God with all my heart, soul and mind and love my neighbour as myself

Although Love came in the promise eight lists, Love God with all my heart, soul and mind keeps all other promises in balance. Do your best to return to God if any mistake happened. Do your best to love Him. Do your best to draw Him close to you. Not on the surface only – but with all your loving God. One of the most important promises you can gift to yourself and find out what pleases God and do it.

I will be with You

God is always with you.

He said, ” as I was with Moses, I will be with You “.

👉When God is with you there are three areas to remind yourselves

🙌And God is not limited to a location.

It means wherever we are located here on earth; He is there, He is omnipotent. So, do not worry about your location. God got you cover on this for sure. He knew the place you have been born. Even better, he knew you before you opened your little eyes to this world. God does not need to steal your identity. Because He is your identity. You have made in His image. The location is an artificial word to know where we are and where we go; the world is not our permanent home.

🙌God is not limited in time.

Not only that, He is God of all times. He is not isolated in time or limited in a time zone. The time is for us because we are human. We need time to discipline the place we live in. He created the time too. To make the world and everything in it a better place to live for us. But he is not limited to it. He is with you at all times. You are in the right time slot. Don’t worry; God is with you, don’t say I am a lost generation or come at the wrong time on earth, not at all. You are in the right place, with the right people and at the right time. So, be glad and enjoy your moments in this realm. Till you see, yourself in His heavenly arms.

🙌God is not shorthanded

He will never be. His mighty hands are not short to help you. He can pull you out, less than a blink of an eye. He got the golden key; He can open any door for you. The Holy Spirit abides in you. He didn’t come to leave; He came to remain. Keep believing and trust that the Cross of Jesus has saved you. God is not powerless; He is the source of power that will never be ended.

We may forget Him, but He will never forsake us.

Can you remind yourselves of the tangible presence of God in your life?

🗣👥Friends, if my posts are touching your heart, would you do a favour? Could you share it with your people? Let’s make our hearts closer together.

David Praises the Lord

Then, in front of everyone, David sang praises to the Lord: I praise you forever, Lord! You are the God our ancestor Jacob worshiped. Your power is great, and your glory is seen everywhere in heaven and on earth. You are king of the entire world, and you rule with strength and power. You make people rich and powerful and famous. We thank you, our God, and praise you. But why should we be happy that we have given you these gifts? They belong to you, and we have only given back what is already yours. We are only foreigners living here on earth for a while, just as our ancestors were. And we will soon be gone, like a shadow that suddenly disappears.”
1 Chronicles 29:10‭-‬15 CEV

Kind David, time was up! He was ready to transfer his kingdom to his son, but right before that, he prayed for His Son, and he blessed him with his prayer. He reminded God was faithful till now, and He will be on his son reign, Solomon. He acknowledged that God is the King of the entire world.

He had started with a praise song, not demanding, not complaining, nothing else except exalting God. Read the above verse a second time, this time slowly and put yourself in the prayer. Can you thank God for all His faithfulness in your life? Can you transfer this blessing to your heirs? As Kind David said, ” we have only given back what already His”, Let us Give all of our praise and worship to the King of Kings. Let us praise Him as David did.

Beautiful nature at Buddero National Park

Here some are beautiful nature photos from Buddero national park. The interesting thing about nature is they continue to proclaim the beauty of God. As some are hurting the planet, other people of all tribe and nation are admiring the voiceless sound of trees, rivers and mountains. God is hovering over all. The Bible says, “Day after day they continue to speak; night after night they make him known.” (Psalms 19:2 NLT)
How come they continue to speak and praise Him with a voiceless sound? How come we don’t honour and proclaim His Name? They make Him known. Heaven and earth all belong to Him only. Let’s see his magnificence and make Him known. Are you with me in this? Thank God for this. With all our weaknesses, we can see and enjoy his handwork.

Great, Memorise Bible Verse

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.

Plan , Prayer , Promise

In the race of love and fight , we all have one life to live on earth until to eternal life in Christ. People ask what would be like the heavens? our forever home. I almost forgot about God’s promises in my life. I may think the current circumstance would be the end of everything! no. It is not. God’s victory is bigger than my situation , bigger than any result now and than. God changes thing according to his good will not according my good desire.

The real road of victory has some big/small obstacles. King David had faced those. I don’t think the biggest fear of King David were facing the giants but facing about “Does my life honor God? ” , ” Did i do enough to please him?”. Those questions came when he was in highest position , right in his palace. We read this in 2 Samuel 7 . The process of honoring God comes with an action. But not the way we think , but the way He thinks. Comes with an admiring prayer to the God of universe.

We need to learn ( at least I need to learn more) , God does not need us to do something for Him , although He will be pleased with our plans . He is pleased to shape our plans right in his majestic hands. That is exactly we studies in 2 Samuel 7. He makes it right and noble. And I know mistakes are part of my plans and I know my plans are not successful without His love; helping me in all ways.

So , I offer Him my plans as prayer as His promises pass through and filter it with his holy hand. He makes it right. He changes it like a new morning ; fresh and pure.

How great you are, Sovereign Lord! There is no one like you, and there is no God but you, as we have heard with our own ears.” 2 Samuel 7 : 22.

I have to submit that , I have been short of knowing him more. All these three sisters Plan,Prayer, Promise has something to do with my willing of surrender. Dr Charles Stanley said it well on his devotion ” When we have difficulty hearing the Lord, the best remedy is to surrender our personal desires and fix our attention on what God wants. Only then will we again be able to discern our Shepherd’s voice calling us back to Himself.” David knew exactly about shepherd’s voice, He was , himself a shepherd once. God ‘s promises echoes through His voice. It seems our personal desires are blocking of God’s voice coming in. What we need to surrender, what steps we need to do. So I have decided to follow according below :

Plan = Submit my desires to God

Prayer = With an humble heart ask Him to help and acknowledge He is sovereign Lord and can do anything and He has the best interest to assist me

Promise = Hearing God’s voice pass through, they are right and in time. When God said , it will be done surely even I can not see it.

My friend, Give it a go. Keep these three sisters close to each other. Than we will say like Kind David :” How Great You are Sovereign Lord!”

Much Love

The God of my heart

Searching is the most difficult and painful task for all humans. Today’s people won’t want to be bothered. Something in us stuck to not to search and seek.

I want the easy way. I want my lessons in school be easy. I want my work be anti-stress and easy task given . I want to go with express train with no delay.

But , when I came to faith in Jesus , I encountered this in opposite way, an absolute obstacle for me. The God I am following call me to be patient and wait upon the answers. The God I am following now says you’ll be success if you trust in my way. I was passing half the valley of my life , my own direction with all miserable thoughts. But , oh , the God of my heart calls me and lighten my way in the right one. I thought I was going the right way , He shown me the true way.

This God call me to search, to seek , the deepest of His Will. Not choosing the wide open door that everyone going that way , rather the narrow one. That one; which everyone thinking is impossible. They knock every door to find a solution , how miserable! Pity! When God knocks thier door they won’t open, because they want easy task , easy healing.

He made me in His secret way. The God of my heart formed me in His hands.

If I don’t praise Him for how He formed me ; at least I need to lift him up for his works in my life. I am not seeking Him as I should , I repent. This repentance of mine would bring light into my life; my soul and my inner being now loves you more as I search you more.

You own my heart , God knows who we are. Let Him test it and pure my anxious heart.

This would be the best move, from easy comforting to searching and seeking.

Oh , the God of my heart.

Broken but Beautiful

Have you ever felt broken? I felt it and i know and i understand it at least a little bit 🙂 . There is no shame being broken – you can find life in it exactly the way even you don’t expect it. This new heavy experience gives you a new prospective. I promise there is a bunch of good -positive things in it. Today , we are witness the beauty in the brokeness . Some of my fellow bloggers friends experienced this transformation and they came out with a victory and beauty.

-Psalms 37 : 3

What do you need to pass on in your life? Do you know the most high priest is able to mend your brokenness ?

His Mercy and Kindness can overtake and covers our wounds. There is a beauty in your brokenness. There is an untold story of grace and love. You can stand again, stand tall to all your shame and accusations.

When you pull up roots in order to fulfill a divine destiny, there is not a sense of pain or loss. Rather, there is a great expectation for things to come.
– Reinhard Bonnke

What do I need to pull up in order to fulfill for God’s destiny. I got an expectation for the things to come. I got a love to follow. I got to know who am I in him ?

Let me hear joy and gladness; let the bones that you have broken rejoice.
Psalms 51:8 ESV

Can you show to your enemy you are beautiful enough to not be afraid of your brokenness ?

Your are beautiful.

You are.

A Pure Life in the Spirit

We are ears and eyes of God on earth.

I was off for a few days , as my dear grandpa graduated to heaven. A bye for now and a see you soon came to my situation. Although it was a shock for all of us – He was a good man , a good farmer man. I am proud to be his grandkid. As a wave of grieve came to us. I have never stopped Prayer. It is a painful process , your dearest person not anymore around. But we believe for eternal life. Life after death exist.

The first part of Romans 8 was a teachable lesson for me last night. A pure life in Christ. His faithful love will remain forever for me. We got a new life in the Spirit. A pure life in the Spirit means forget our past natural sinful way and get a new identity in Him. I am challenge by this, every time I read this, I tell to myself how can I put my own habit (sometimes beautiful habits ) away and wearing a new cloth of Spirit?!

But Paul says in Romans 8 , ” God put an end to our Sin ” . I am not bound in my bad habits and sinful way anymore because in Jesus I am free. By ending my bad habits and sinful nature I declare I follow the Spirit. I was thinking how can I satisfy my desires and wishes , I did whatever I could do to reach them , but not anymore as I’ve changed and challenged my self in the Spirit, now I am thinking how can I please God, what good deed I can do for Him? Testing every often if I am in the Spirit or Not ? Do I think like Jesus ? My whole attitude suddenly changed.

Now I believe even this body of mine die , I am still alive in Him , I believe God can raise up even my dead body to life becaue of His Spirit in me.

Let the Power of Spirit take control within me, Let the storm of life come, Becasue I am changed , I am raised up from death to life. When Jesus lives in me , I have purpose and plan. I know where I came from and I know where will I go.

I am a child of God , not a fearful slave anymore. In fact, I am the heir of Christ’s Glory.

Both part, His suffering and glory is mine.

Life is more precise than all other things we see and feel around. Our every day food will come eventually, but the life you are breathing right now is matter.

Feels God

When I wrote my first poem , I was about 16 years old. I’ve never knew that how far will go. A teenage boy with a world facing Him. God was good to me. Looked after me. The more important thing was I just was 13 years old filld with the Holy Spirit, speaking in toungs. Only 13 years old. It seems 13 is a holy number for me , as for majority people may Not. I was born on 13 August. Who knows may the day i was filled with the Spirit, It was 13 !!! Anyway. Praising God for His presence in my life.

I wasn’t looking for God , but He looked for me first. Near , Far , he was there.

Deep calls to deep in the roar of your waterfalls; all your waves and breakers have swept over me.
Psalm 42:7 NIV

All the blessings, power and Love of God covers us all. When the waves of life is heavy , still He is there and covers us. When nothing is bright , His Light is shining in every corner of the earth.

From my childhood till now , God covered me , loved and looked after me. God is real , alive , ready to show his self in our earthly life.

Let’s have Hope together that God come again in our hearts and do a new thing. Let’s see His wonders. Let’s see how wonderful is his loving arms.

Let us be brave again.

One step closer to Him.

Deeps calls to deep.

God’s beauty in us

It is just a bridge. This connection need to be made. Or in a worse scenario need to be repaired. But we can’t use our talent to build it. The only thing me and you need to this bridge appears in our life is Faith and Believe. Not by our own hard work.But, All hard work has been done on the Cross that we can freely walk on this bridge and have peace with ourselves and our creator. Allowing Holy Spirit leads us , soften our hearts and create a beautiful shape of Heaven. Can you see his beauty?

He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end. ( Ecclesiastes 3 : 11 )

Think about a moment. Why do you need to be You? In the world of Chaos you can order it by being you. Isn’t Faithful and trustworthy rare these days? But you be the One. Isn’t Life harsh and Painful? but you be the One who does not leaning back but falling forward and crash enemys work. You are the one who can sing with the Ocean. You are the one who hear the song of nature and keep dreaming till sunset. You are the one who choose to be You..

Allowing ourselves to Trust Him even we don’t understand will make us a better human. We’re here to experience Life. When God breathe His Life into dead body of Adam. It is been poured out God’s Life to this dead bones. The Life we have now is so precious because it’s God’s breathe in it. Use it till Full. Good or Bad , Worse or Nice , all will turning good for us and it will work for His Glory.

After a long week, I am glad to write to you dear ones. I pray thay Holy Spirit touch your Life. That you will know the truth. That you can make a life decision according to His Will.

1 July 2019 , recording the beauty Of God to the people. Still there are a lot beauty unimaginable around. Still there are milions od people Love each other , Love thier enemies. Still , are people who don’t care about materials, whom deeply rooted to God.

Let not doubt take the beauty of Jeshs out of you. People change , things change , circumstances change, but God will never change. Trust in Him. In His beauty.

Hope you enjoyed today’s post. Please share it to your friends and family.

Eagle’s Wings

Oh , how I miss you guys. Life is so fast and short. Time is flying and everyday is a new door , waiting to be opened by us. Sometimes trying to cathup the time and pause a moment to share what’s happened. Here, in my blog I am pausing to reflect my heart.

Our last Saturday hike was great. It is always great, my hiking group are bunch of awesome and cool friends which new buddies are always welcome. About 45 people for our last hike shown up. We broke the record. More friends , more fun.

Walking through the Bush, than, reaching to edge of cliff where the beautiful blue sea is shining with a clear blue sky above. What a day? So inspiring and full of LIFE. where you will be auto-drawing our heart and mind to God with a fresh air.

While the whales got the most of my friends attention in our Saturday hike way , I was amazed of these two eagles. If we can only put” BUT ” in our lives hardship, in our daily mind disturbing, God can work on that and gives us the wings like eagles. That’s where our vision gets power, and our fainted heart gets strength. Let’s believe again. Let’s dream again.. Let’s know that God is in our side.

“But” those who wait on the Lord Shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint. Isaiah 40 :31

Can we just Pause for a moment and know that God is in Control? He is not forceable God, He is a choiceable God.
