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.

Do life, have Faith

I’ve run more this year, even more than last year; the coronavirus pushed me to be active more and get out of the house to have an exercise. It is not too bad, and I broke my whole time record of running for 190km a month. If all people know the value of physical activity – they all do some to improve their life. The Bible also talks about physical activity, but a ‘ Spiritual Sport’ would also benefit. There is no such comparison here- all are needed; both keep you fresh and revive and prepare you for the days ahead, whatever you may face. 

Okay, I love that everyone knows how much exercise they need to keep them a level up. Others can guide you through measuring things worldly, but ultimately, you decide how long you could go.

We can use the measure to improve our lives and make us better, don’t be limited to it.

We can address the things in this world, believe the unseen things(in Christ), set our faith in the right path, and see how things will change if we do life and have faith.

My running journey started very slow, and I found it enjoyable to run after or before work; there is no such paltry joy but a solid-valid one. As I mentioned, two things are crucial to us: our spiritual body and the second is our physical body. We need to balance both in us, appraise our status, and see which work more. Praise and practice work hand in hand to make us strong human beings. We know that our true identity is not from this world and not the things of it. Our ‘Spiritual Sport’ helps us be ready for the unusual incident in the world we live in, undersized or oversized, we are prepared to face them; with practice and patience, we know how to tackle them. Please remember that Christ came to give us a new life in Him; as we walk toward eternity, let’s do our best to keep it that way. 

Spring is beautiful in Australia. As I run more around, I see more beauty, I see more bees, I see more birds singing a happy song, and I see the whisper of the newborn flowers with colourful style. I wish I had a camera that could record all this beauty and show you in a quick few minutes, But I will instead be present and witness this.

For now, let me enjoy this spring season with running and writing. We are heading toward the warm season soon, and I feel it.

And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.[Philipians 4: 19], both your spiritual needs and physical needs.

Seven Victories we have in Christ, The Heavens REJOICING with us

Seven victories we have in Christ – The Heavens rejoicing with us.

We are victorious in Christ; We won the crown of life because of Him. The bread of life gives new hope to our broken world. Most of us want to win; I mean, who doesn’t want to win? Everyone targeting the gold medal in an Olympic game – are we targeting gold in our spiritual race? In a life full of competition – and challenges- Jesus saying ” You are mine, and forever belongs to me “. 

Some of the challenges we are facing in life:

Challange of health 

Challenge of financial 

Challange of spiritual 

Challange of faith

Challange of marriage 

Challange of family 

Challange of study

Challange of work

You name any challenges, diseases, or anything that brings us down – do not worry – Jesus has already given us Victory. We may face those challenges as humans – indeed, we need to face them, not escape them! So write down your challenges on a paper- write all of them. They may not be those I mentioned above- note whatever you are experiencing and keeps you slow to move. Lay it down the paper inside your Bible. Start to declare the seven below Victory over each challenge. 

Jesus said:” Do not be afraid. I am the First and the Last. I am the Living One; I was dead, and now look, I am alive forever and ever! And I hold the keys of death and Hades.” [ Revelation 1: 17 ]

1- The Victory of to eat from the tree of life, which is the paradise of God

To eat a tree which is life, A forever life? That would be a dream come true. This Victory is mine because of Jesus- if I obey and stay endured till the end. I repent and do the things I did at first, to love God with whole my heart. This Victory is the paradise of God, as John described in his writings in the book of revelations. 

2- The Victory of a new name, a white stone and the hidden manna 

There are three victories in this one for you. 

I am going to have a new name. I am going to receive a white stone. I am receiving the hidden manna. It does not matter what the challenge is; God gave me a new name. The old broken of me will be out, and the new of me will be born. A white stone means you are forgiven, and the blood of Jesus wipes your sins. The hidden manna – Jesus himself will be yours. And nothing compares when Jesus is yours, your sins are wiped with a new name given to you- what else do you want? 

But this is not stopping here- you got more victories ahead.

3- The Victory of the morning star

Bright and light – Like Jesus himself- as you reign with Jesus – He gives you authority as Jesus received from the Father. Your Victory continues to flourish if you do his will to the end. This time the morning star is yours. The son of God – gave Himself as the morning star without a doubt. When you have this Victory – you can have joy in you that there is no challenge of today or tomorrow will stand. Instead, you won the race and the life; you are the morning star- nothing like our broken language can define this. Write off one challenge and write it down this: “I am the morning star- belongs to Jesus.”

4- The Victory of dressing in white, name on the book of life

You are a bride – dressed in white- clean and beautiful, fresh for a new life with him. You will walk with the heavenly groom – Jesus, the lamb of God. What an honour – what a privilege! What a tremendous victory we have in him? Wow- we are the bride of Jesus. Oooof, our name is written in the book of life. I am not sure – if this does not bring you joy, what else would?

5- The Victory of a pillar in the temple of God

You are a pillar in the temple of the living God. You are his only one. Keep the house of the Lord firm because he trusts you. Tell to the challenge: ” I am the pillar of my most high God.” You are planted firmly in the house of the Lord for His purposes. Noting can move you around, not the memory of the past and not the event of today or tomorrow. 

6-The Victory of reigning with Jesus 

As we continue to seek and obey the Lord till the end, Jesus has given us a victory to sit with him on his throne. There is a space for you. There is a throne for you. There is a reigning with Jesus waiting for you. No need to struggle – we are the heir of Jesus. This short time on earth prepares me to reign with Him- have this joy in your heart. I’ve got my Victory in Him.

7-The Victory of receiving the crown of life/ saved by His Grace

The crown life is not easy to have- or by definition, buying it cheap from somewhere! The heavenly Father gave this crown to His people. In an Olympic game, athletes bring their best to win the Gold medal. I saw they were crying when they won the Gold medal- many years of practice and discipline got them there to show the world – now they are the best. How much we need to be glad – when we won the crown of life in heaven! You do your best- you do prayer, you do whatever you can to win it. Put it in perspective – see things by faith, no sight. Love yours and the people around you, be kind to yours and anyone you are facing in your life. See good things in others and let your word and action be as clear as day.

******

The journey seems challenging and complicated – we have a life on earth to do. By knowing that you are a winner, still, you are waiting to receive the trophy. 

The attribute of a winner is listed below:

1- Be strong in the face of challenges

2- Have endurance in the face of the unknown

3- Keep on believing in the broken world

4- Let Faith arises in you

5- Be full of hope

6- Let kindness overflows from you

7- Pray continually as your peace shining to others, inside out

8- Be Holy and seek God’s face every single day

9- Be committed and consistence 

10- The Victories is yours

These Photos are good for your Soul , Nature photos

I had a small opportunity to get out of home and capture some eye-catching photos, of course within Government health order. You feel heaven on earth – you see beauty beyond beauty! When you walk through trees and greens – your soul refreshes – your mind unwinds from this world and takes you to the peaceful planet. Are you agree with me? What was a feeling you have when you walk in nature?
Here are some photos to inspire us all – for a great future – a hope which never vanishes …

Walk with me and see the beautiful nature
The way toward beauty – two things – imagine and dream
God’s thoughts are higher than our thoughts! Imagine!
Take a deep breathe – You are in green planet – lose yourself into beauty
Peace overflows from you- when you pause and look- keep dreaming
Heaven is in front of you- don’t go far touch the sky and smell the spring
Your red beauty swimming as your heart rejoicing
Green and white is the colour of your nature – walk and enjoy
Perhaps your joy doubles as you smile inside out

Which one is your favourite one? I hope you are inspired and energised like me.

Be Kind to your heart, Immerse into love and sing a new song

I love to walk on the grass; it feels great! I am sure you do it too! Especially when we are in lockdown and have a chance to get out in the sunshine, have a cap and sunglasses, and walk on the grass once a day. I am in awe of nature. Sometimes, I keep quiet to hear the soft sound of the breeze. When the leaves are dancing is the moment of joy in my heart. 

I walk through and through – immersed into love.

Can you imagine a blue sky? with no clouds! Right above – Sun loves you with his light. Light is good. It takes away all the doubts; I keep daydreaming. I hold the beauty out there- that warms my heart to the bone. 

You can see the beauty when you open the window of the side of the garden! Think about heaven – Lookup, sing a new song.

How sweet is the sound of the birds! When you know, they are free – not in the cage. 

And God said, “Let the water teem with living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the vault of the sky.” Genesis 1:20 

I always think about this- God said, “let the birds fly above”. They are free and fly. They’re not worried about anything because they are in Father’s care. Aren’t we in Father’s care? We no need more THINGS! The things will come and go! We need to be Free! And able to fly ( be in peace). We need wings- the strong ones. 

“Don’t lose heart! You have a Father who can fly faster than you can fall” – Jentezen Franklin 

The great days are ahead- Keep your head held high! We are in the safe arms- keep opened your window, see the beautiful side of the garden. Have a walk on the grass – kiss the sky and be kind to your heart.

Jonah’s Prayer, oh Lord I call you

If you read my previous post about Jonah’s story, you will see the centre of Jonah’s short mission is a powerful prayer!

He stuck in a giant whale’s belly! Sooner or later, he would be conscious, lack oxygen, and other facts will shut his body down. But, He trusts his God again and prefers to spend his last breath praying.

And He started to say:

” In my distress, oh Lord, I called you.”  

If you are inside a fish and there is no way out! Back to Him and start to confess, begin to believe again – put away all your points of pride and wear the humble cloth before the Lord. There, right there – it is a new beginning. 

” And you answered me.”

Hallelujah: There is a living hope for you and me. There is a new morning for us. 

Oh – All His mighty power will protect us. If you are deep in the world- he hears you, as he heard Jonah. God moves you from the world of the dead to the world of the living. It does not matter how deep we are stuck – He overcomes it – He will open a door. He will rescue us. 

As we continue to confess, all strongholds will fall- Jesus will break all chains. Your story is great friend, The measure of this world does not define you. That is where was the point of understanding for Jonah – Inside a fish. You might need time like Jonah. You may spend time inside the fish, But I believe God’s story is significant than any other thing in your life. You are not dead! Let these dead bones sing a new song for the Living Lord. 

” When I felt my life slipping away” Jonah 2:7a

” Then, O Lord, I prayed to you” Jonah 2:7b

Let this prayer of us be a pleasing alter for the Lord. Let these carnal lips of us singlet it rain. The rain of the Holy Spirit can make fresh our souls for His kingdom.

” But I will sing praise to you” Jonah 2:9 

All the earth will proclaim his righteousness. All the world – All the universe sing a new song to ” I AM “- Hallelujah. 

” Then the Lord ordered the fish to spit Jonah up on the beach,

and IT DID” Jonah 2:10

He will order all the earth for your favour. For your freedom, nothing will stop Him. He is running to You. Are we ready to come back home, my friend?

Day 12 – You Are Awesome

You are uniquely created and awesomely been formed in your mother’s womb to be here. I am just writing this post to remind you that you are loved. Although you have heard this message thousands of times. God is who created you, Awesome in His beauty.  

” I praise you because you made me amazingly and wonderfully. What you have done is terrific. I know this very well. “ Psalms 139 : 14

You are wonderful because the One who made you is Wonderful. That is why King David said it well in the above verse. I am not sure how much we know it well, but he knew it very well. Do you know you are made amazingly and wonderfully? And do you know that nothing can separate you from your Creator’s love?

His thought is precious to us, sometimes we are lost in the storm of life, and we find it hard to grasp; we are made in his image. Perhaps the more we get close to him, we get more we realise His love for us. Don’t drop this; You are precious! from your corner of the world to my corner of the world – wherever we are, we can do this! We can do a life to be better. Even if this life is brutal to us, we can be! We can try again – the failure is there to make us stronger.

Let us believe again, Let us trust again and raise up to change us and the new generation for a new world. You are alive to be witness to His beauty. Let heaven see this and smile at it, Let stars keep dancing for us and the mood see our love towards each other. Be a human, a kind and loved one. Who believes that with God, everything is possible- let’s colour our dark world with a colourful pen and paint it with a joyful shout. You are truly remarkable! ❤

Questions to ponder:  Do you know how much your Creator loves you? 

Remember: You Are Awesome

Friend, I hope day 12 blessed you. If you are followed days 1 to 12- Thanks so much, still we got two days to our 14 days immersing in God’s word. Your comment indeed will encourage me to keep writing. And tell me, on which topic do you want to see more posts? And you know! I am fully blessed you are here!

Stay blessed; peace and love with you.

Lord, you made me understand this: you love me so much

Here I am – teach me, wash me and cleanse me with your Son’s blood, Jesus

Dear friend, blessings to you- If this prayer blessed your heart- why not sharing to your loved one?

Day 10 – Greetings from Paul

He was born in Tarsus to a Greek Jewish family. He, himself, had an encounter in Damascus to be a follower of Jesus. His letters in the Bible are outstanding – I have read his letters more than many books I’ve read. Apostle Paul not only encouraged people in his time- his words are warming millions of people around the world. Of course – It is being given by the Holy Spirit, and God is the ultimate author of all his letters. 

He prayed, he inspired, and he endured – He did everything to spread the good news of God out there. Without a car, without travelling by plane.

” I pray that God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ will be good to you and give you peace.” Galatians 1 : 3 

God has been good to Apostle Paul; He had experienced himself; the awesomeness of good Father, He has seen miracles, dead has arisen. With all craziness around, he is saying, as God our Father gave me peace, He can provide you with peace also, my dear friends.

Apostle Paul, Who walked with God, is praying for us. His letters are for us – the new generation getting hard; this message. 

” Jesus gave himself for our sins to free us from this evil world we live in.” Galatians 1: 4

Apostle Paul was introducing Jesus to us. The world we are living in is far than perfect. We can not find our ultimate peace here; also, it wants to eat us forever in its darkness. But, the good news is here- We have a redeemer who can save us from this corruption. 

” This is what God our Father wanted.”

To save you; To love you for this evil world-

Peace is yours, Jesus is yours, and the perfect world is waiting for you. Till that, keep believing Jesus, and trust God is in control in every detail of your life. 

May Apostle Paul realised this when the heavenly light blinded him on the road to Damascus. Are you getting this? 

Questions to ponder: Do you need a heavenly light to believe him who he is? In what areas of your life need peace? Is God been good to you?

Remember: God is in Control

Day 9 – The Country of Moab / Part 2

Part 2 – Continues from day 8.

Out of the country of Moab – Going Home

The pain was enough; Naomi sensed the direction of God to go back home – to Bethlehem. Where he got married and have a good memory, a place can call home. She hoped she could leave all her heart-sorrow in a foreign land. She did lose everything, except the breath of keep-going; she gave it all. The country of Moab showed her the wrong side; she paid a heavy price and was ready to change. In the middle of hard-thought about what happened to her life, she remembered her daughter-in-law’s kindness :

You have been very kind to me and my sons, who are now dead.” Ruth 1:8

She didn’t have any complaints about her daughters-in-law behaviours; She praises their behaviours. In other words, she was saying, ” One behalf my sons, I was saying thanking for being kind.” Naomi knew the pain of losing the husband as she experienced herself, so she prayed for them to find a good husband and a good home. She was praying in her heart for them that they won’t go again, the bitter losing a husband. As tears were looping on Naomi’s cheek:

” She kissed her daughters-in-law, and they all started crying.” Ruth 1: 9

Three of them- Emptied their heart and emotions. The endorphins are released now, and the oxytocin has given them a sense of calm and joy.

There was quietness for a moment. 

We all have those moments of crying after pain. We learnt the lessons, and our hearts need to be emptied and earnestly looking back to home. Naomi and the women were in a bad place in her life. But this didn’t stop her from praying, and it didn’t stop her to keep going. 

Orpah and Ruth urging Naomi to go with them. But, Naomi assured them – coming with her gives them nothing:

An I am already sad enough- the Lord has done many things to me!” Ruth 1:13b

It was time to leave behind all bitterness. It was about to move to a new location, a place; that Naomi can start again. 

But Ruth followed Naomi – and they did go to Bethlehem, together. 

Question to ponder: What you learnt from this story? 

Remember: Keep going, keep praying and stay strong.

Friend, Thanks; I am truly blessed you are here. Let your kind comment warm my heart again. I pray our Lord to bless you, dear.

Day 7 /14- Serve yours , Serve others = Serving the Living God

The only person you need to serve first is yours. If you do not know how to help yourself, you will have trouble serving others. Jesus knew how to serve the Father through the lens of serving others. We, as the body of Christ, is to love and help ourselves and others.

I have written a book called ” Serving the living God In October 2016, which you can find here. This miniature version of writing focuses on three critical matters: serving with a smile, serving with heart and serving with Him. The bible says, ” Serve each other with love.” Love is the engine of passion for giving service to others; Especially in the times of Covid. 

The Christian life, Looks to the interest of others; that is the heart of Christian life. Christ served us on the Cross. The Holy Spirit is helping us. Do a favour to yours, Serve yours + Serve others = serving the Father.

Sometimes serve yourself means forgiving yourself. If God forgave you on the Cross, Can’t you forgive yourself? Look at the glorious future of God’s kingdom in the land of serving. 

“Serve one another humbly in love.” Galatian 5:13 

” Keep your spiritual fervour, serving the Lord.” Romans 12: 11

“In your hopeless point, you will find hope by serving others.” -Dariush Youkhaneh, Serving the Living God.

Keep running, keep pushing and keep serving. Who are you going to call/text/serve today?  

I recently received a message from an old-old friend; even though I was busy in my life, He sent me a text of encouragement. He served me, and my heart brightened. Serving God is not only meant to go to the poor country, but you can also start where you live, with yours, your neighbour, your city.

 “In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.” ( Matthew 5:16 )

Questions to ponder: What serving mean to you? Who are you going to serve this week?

Friend, Thanks for reading the day seven post; I am full of Joy with your visit; please go ahead and encourage me with a warm comment. Would you mind sharing it with someone you know? Your sharing is an act of serving.

Day two – Rest

Resting our soul in the chaos of this world is the vital thing for every Christ-follower. It does not matter how crazy things are going around – you still your soul in the light of heavenly peace. No need to try the shadow of things, no need to chase the worldly things but, instead we can go to our Father in heaven presence and receive.

Jesus was in chaos, but we learn how he kept himself fresh by meeting the Father daily. Moses was tired, the heavy-duty of taking people out of slavery. The Lord said to Moses, “Get going, you and the people you brought up from the land of Egypt.” 

Day two – Rest / hh-high.com

God was doing everything to take them to the rest-land. He sent His Angels before them; He promised them to be with them, a promise from the God of everything.

Now, the slight stumble of today, let not disturb you as the pillar of cloud leads your way to the land of rest. He led his Nation. Don’t you think he can lead you? You are heading to the territory of restoration. 

The Lord said, “I will personally go with you, Moses, and I will give you REST- everything will be fine for you.” Exodus 33: 14 NLT

He, Himself go with you, and He gives you rest, not the kind of the rest this world gives you- short and earthly, but an everlasting one. He looks favourably on you. He knows your name- your every detail of life is known to Him. He loves you unconditionally. And His eternal rest is for you. 

Moses responded, “Then show me your glorious presence.” Exodus 33:17

The Lord replied, “I will make all my goodness pass before you, and I will call out my name, Yahweh, before you. For I will show mercy to anyone I choose, and I will show compassion to anyone I choose.” Exodus 33:19 

This year is the year of complete rest for you, your family, and your loved ones if they trust God and their promises. So look above; a beautiful year of rest is coming. 

Questions to ponder: Can you see the rest of the Lord coming at you? How can you help others go into this real rest?

Friend, I hope Day two of 14-day immersing in God’s word blessed you. If this post blessed you, share it with someone today, leave a comment; I’ll be pleased with your word of encouragement. Be with me for 12 more days.

Remeber, God is alwasy with you.

God still loves you

It doesn’t matter!.. what is significant ? it is your love towards your creator. All these materials around us, tangible and intangible , feelings and seeing , they all will pass away. What really stands forever ,is love. You can see much more better with closed eyes! When you truly connected to the Love of God. To his richness presence and lay down on his green pastures. To grab the passion of heaven in our carnal hearts .

I need to seek his face more. To be his light and I need to enter to his glory with a humble heart and being like a kid.

God , doesn’t need Hero’s. He needs humble hearts. He is the master of fixing crashed spirit for his glory. I wondered, what Mother Teresa said about herself , Always humble and reticent, she continued to repeat with profound conviction  ,” I am nothing “. A woman who wholeheartedly obeyed God’s love and committed entire of her life to do his mission on earth saying ” I am nothing “. She brought smile and love to many.  I wonder what holds you back, I wonder what excuse you have about the love of God.

The Spirit of truth , is you counsellor. He knows what is the best decision in your life. All of us , me and you , need,  is a complete surrender.

” I knew you , before you form in your mother’s womb “. This is God is saying to us. This is Him , Who created and designed all things seen and unseen. Don’t you think that He still loves you? don’t disappear. Be a warrior, you’re born for such a moment. To fall down and rise like a lion. To hold your shield and to be brave like David. Yes , let them say I am weak , because this is , where , my strength comes from! When I am weak than I am strong , let this be your slogan. Let the enemy knows you haven’t finished yet. Let your soul knows you are belongs to Him. Make it louder than any ocean , to the south and to the west , to the north and to the east and to the every corner of your being that I am the child of God. Not my will but his will , His love is not conditional –

I take delight in the Lord, I wait patiently for him.

Change happens when we renew our minds. When we turn from our ways by choosing his way as our main road of destiny.

Our every day life

On Sunday afternoon. I was seating next to a couple of beautiful trees, right at our local  park. I really miss you all, it was so busy couple of weeks. As my heart was here to bring you a refresh inspiring post. In the corner of my heart, I realise that first I need to be refreshed myself.

I learned there is a beauty in the step of life. An unexplainable one. In each step there were God is leading my direction truly.

My one eye open to this world and another eye to look inside to hear the voice. the voice of the Holy Spirit.

I promised to be your motivational coach. But before that, I need to get the revelation. I am thankful you are here  and reading my word. Because you found that whatever I say, it won’t hurt us. This is for our peace. For our benefits. From visiting family till to be with my friends, these are well for our earthly walk. What really is changing me? it is staying connected to the source. Having a big dream, to change my life. It is true for you too. In your discovery of life, you know there is nothing like the source. The source of life. As obeying Christ was/is my first priority. And, I know God is using us for his Glory. I hold on to it, till end. Although, the paths of this temporarily  life would be tough and hard.

Okay, heaps of things has been going on. But, I’m on the boat yet, the capitan of this broken boat is Jesus and I have no doubt I get there. He is not in sleep, He knows what storms are hitting the boat hard. God is good always. The good news is my latest ebook editing is in progress, and by the grace of God would be ready by mid-April.

I see God’s blessing in every area of my life. I am thankful for this, truly. Can you see God’s hand in your life?

Our everyday life is a blessing to be thankful for. 

I arrived home yesterday about 6:30pm. I changed dress and I went fast to the soccer field. I moved to another team now, after my coach called me and said there is no room left for you. He suggested me and gave me another coach contact number. To be honest, it was a bit frustrating, but I said to my self. Whatever God desires for me in this, Let it be done. Our training session was on Wednesday evening. I went there and I joined to the new team. The organiser told me still we don’t know if there will be a place for your in the team, he said come on tomorrow and we see what we can do for you.

God is in every detail of our life. Tell him what’s your priorities!

Okay, it was Thursday evening. I had eaten my dinner and I remembered need to meet the organiser. I went there, everyone were left but another team were playing. I locked my car and I took the steps to be closer to the field. Suddenly, I saw the organiser, I said “Hi Rob”. “Hey Darius” he said. Can I do the registration now! “sure, why not” he said with his Aussie accent. He Brought the paper and I paid the amount and He said you can play not this week but the week after!

I want to be one of the hero’s of the Faith in Hebrews 11 listed. I want to believe to unseen , the things I have hope for, those things I can not see it now. And , I have this hope for all of us to meet Him and we will meet each other in heaven where there is the Glory of almighty God.

Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works.( Hebrews 10:24 )

Fill your everyday with God’s love. Have faith for future. Do not be worry about tomorrow but let God lives in you and receive his peace for today and give your tomorrow to Him. Be whole with his love and help someone , love someone and do an act of kindness toward someone. Let God be in your detail of life.

Tell us in a comment what blesses you today?

“The Power of Love” book review by Bishop Michael B. Curry

First I have been introduced to Bishop Curry by Watching his sermon at Royal Wedding Ceremony. His words cached my attention that the only thing our broken world needs right now is the way of love. Love is the answer of our soul the way how Jesus loved us.  But seriously, look around how our world miserably looking for one love like that. I am not taking off my eyes from Jesus. His love is sufficient and beautiful. What I am learning personally that how can I love others unconditionally. I look to Jesus then I look to others , then I look to Him , I look to others . A bit a bit learning to grow like a baby.

I have never read book like ” The Power of Love ” Book(except bible). I am amazed of the simplicity of the words in the chapters. Honestly I can say that one read is not enough for this book. This book is special and unique and not to be missed. Bishop Curry speaks to your heart . He is great to pull down the power of the love in our every day language.  This book which is included  The Royal Wedding Sermon catches your attention. There is something strongly in his words which I personally believe it is not Bishop Curry words but His creator. I love when He said ” there is an old song that may help it says ,

I got my hand on the gospel plow

Wouldn’t take nothin’ for my journey 

now

Keep your eyes on the prize

Hold on, hold on

Keep your eyes on the prize

Hold on

He beautifully said in another page (page 70) :

” I really believe that why I am a Christian, better yet why I’m a follower of Jesus. A very faulty one, by the way, but a follower nonetheless. But I am because I believe Jesus was right.. The way to life is the way of love. Love the Lord your God. Love you neighbour . And while you are at it, love yourself. That’s the key.”

It is one of those rare well honest book written. They are based on his sermon. The Design of the book it is a bit girly , purple written ” The Power of Love ” , and other words are golden colour by cream colour background. It is a very nice gift , to give your loved ones.

When Love is the way, the earth will be a sanctuary.  – Bishop Michael B. Curry

This book will put you higher. It teaches you how to love without expectation. It will touch your heart if you let it be. It will be a book to remember. It is first Corinthians chapter 13 book. It will challenge you to love everyone – not really in words but indeed love them and serve them like Jesus. No matter where they came from – Love does not sperate people but stick them together. The kind of love that redeem us from our selfish and self-centred way. My heart hurts when I see people ignoring this love, but then again I look to Jesus and my strength back to me.

This is a MUST read book.

My rate to this book is 4.7 / 5.

 

Love is the way.

Much Love
