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

Great Memories Bible Verse

I tell you, you can pray for anything, and if you believe that you’ve received it, it will be yours.
Mark 11:24 NLT

Don’t limit your prayer , Pray in all occasions, anywhere you are . He is not limited. Believe it with all heart that He is Faithful and able to do it. Don’t give up on prayer. The winter will go. A fruit season will come.

Living in Promise

This photo has been taken in Sydney, in the middle of a pandemic where people need a sign! A promise that they can hold on to. In my latest book , ” Hope in Corona Time” , I talked about those promises explicitly. I am holding to this, to the greatest One , Who know all the pain around.

I am living in the Promise. When I allow my selfishness be away with an humble heart accept His loving arm.

I love this photo in all angels. The double rainbow of promises ( Genesis 9:12) . It is like angels pouring down ,using rainbow ladder. Let us look again to this photo, together. Isn’t joyful ? Isn’t a full life of promise ? Isn’t saying to us keep going?

Genesis 9:12, NLT: “Then God said, ‘I am giving you a sign of my covenant with you and with all living creatures, for all generations to come.”

In Love

The Humans

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 “.

Much Love

Thursday Devotion , 9 April 2020 / Rejoice

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

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

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

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

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

Real Hope never dies / 2 minutes reading

The lie is always a lie! It Does not matter how long will be covered, one that will be revealed one day. The truth stands forever.
The lie will die. It will not survive.
God‘s favour and love are with you when you see Jesus. May thousands fall around you, but you, only you stand firm wherever you are. Sometimes lie lay down between our own truth, the way we thought is right. Not truly! Repeating the same sin ever and ever and gain repenting back to the truth. I want to know his love in a deeper level if the distraction of our human nature allows.
Hope is not what you have but what you wait for.


When comes to my personal relationship with Jesus; I surrender all – my future life. Ordering my inner peace with Him. If the world making chaos in me, I open the door of “let it go” and free my self of being likeness of them. I am adopted to God’s family.I need to repeat this in my heart.
You can be a flame in the flood of tears.
Throwing out the knowledge of the world would be first step of growing in the wisdom of the kingdom. I will be happy If I only know these things and do them. Hope comes into my very bones and my wilderness will be green as planet earth. My thirsty heart won’t be filled with an empty jar, so I ask Jesus the source of hope and living water to fill me with his known glory. He said to me find it in “TRUST” River. I was near as one closed eyes to this river.

Hope to Jesus when the world falling down. Hope to Jesus when the chaos is crazy around. Hope to Jesus when there is no answer. Hope to Jesus when you are in dark (as you are passing the darkness) . Hope to whisper of the Holy Spirit within you. Don’t listen to lie. Be still my soul.
Hope Change your life, energise your level of confidence
God calls his people to come back to Him. He is knocking the door of you and me. If we just allow Him.If we only have Hope in Jesus.

What would be the world like?

-our world

Confidence

Be confidence in what you hope for. Merely here is not your last stop ! Me and you got a place in Heaven. The trouble of this world won’t scratch this beauty of heaven in our hearts.

Be strong. We all sometimes fall apart. Let love of Christ fill your whole heart and mind and soul again. We don’t live like hopeless people. We listen to Holy Spirit and pay attention to His words.

Whatever season we all in , we are in together. You are not alone. The only thing you and me need to do not rely on our own understanding but Jesus. Easy to say and hard to do. Have confidence in his promises. His presence brings Joy , Love and patience into our life.

To have faith is to be sure of the things we hope for, to be certain of the things we cannot see.
Hebrews 11:1 GNT

Look! No Price for !

W I S D O M

You cant find price for this anywhere on the earth. You cant buy it in any shop or sell it. This wisdom is beyond the pearls.

This wisdom is a gift from God.

It is not in deep earth and not with the sea. Truly wisdom is not in tradition old or new , not even in our 100 generations back.

Where is this wisdom than?

Where is it located ?

I tell you my friend ;

IT IS RIGHT with GOD and

It is right IN GOD.

It is in fear of the Lord.

Understanding , far away from evil doing.

But to man He said, ‘Behold, the reverential and worshipful fear of the Lord—that is wisdom; And to depart from evil is understanding.’ ”
Job 28 : 28 AMP

How good that is!

A timely word.

A delightful answer can sit right into heart.

A man has joy in giving an appropriate answer,

And how good and delightful is a word spoken at the right moment—

how good it is!
Proverbs 15:23 AMP

Joy comes to us when we give right answer in right time and in the right place.

It will definitely change the atmosphere for good. God gives us this ability that we know which answer we can give.

This is wisdom of God. How good that is like delicious food for our body.

Child of Love

John Piper wrote in his daily devotional ” Exult in him. Experience him as your pleasure. Know him as your treasure. ”

Bible says ” God so loved the world, as to give his only begotten Son..”

My saviour and only Love came to the world to rescue me. I can see the face of God in Jesus , In God I can see the face of Jesus.

No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8 : 37-39

God made us conqueror in Christ Jesus. This is meaning of victory. That kind of love which absloutly nothing can seperate us from it. A heavenly Love for each of us; gifted in this Christmas.

Not only that , Baby Jesus brought hope to all of us. The broken bridge between us and God has been repaired forever. Now , we have hope right next to us available 24/7. A glorious hope and future in Christ Jesus. The plan of enemy has been defeated, and God has created a new life for each one of us in Him.

Pluse, He brought healing and restoration into our life. Only by calling his name , the doors of life will be opened to us. Specially at this time of year , I always say ” Yes God is with us ” , who doesn’t want a powerful God be right with him/her.

Child of Love, Prince of Peace with us.

When H-E is with me I am richer in my skin of weaknesses. Rich in Love , Rich in wisdom and Rich in heart. When the child of Love came to our world , he made it possible , the unanswered prayer heard , the closed doors starting to be opened and our A authority has been returned to us by Him.

This Child was Himself Life , which brought a true abundant life for us, yes this is true gift of Christmas. I am slowly digesting this whats the meaning of the star they put on top of a Christmas tree! Star of David came into my world , to change me for the better , for his will and to be like Him. Not only that, Child of Love brought beauty and light into my world Where I looked to the beauty of Christmas tree and the beautiful light around it. I am unexpectedly blessed !

I am loved in this Christmas. I have Joy for this Christmas because the Child of Love is born. From every angle I look I am a winer.

Now , He brought a lot good things for me ? The question is here, what I have to bring Him? Do I have an undeal things in my heart that need to be dealt ? Or simply with a free consciuos giving Him Praise for this Christmas.

The more impotent thing which God put in my heart tonight is Jesus brought us peace and reconciliation with ourselves. Yes , we were enemy to ourselves. God broke that in Jesus Name. Another free gift of Christmas this Child of Love brought to us.

Can we praise Him with all our heart and mind and soul?

His Name is Emmanuel, God with us.

Merry Christmas to you !

Do something..

Don’t disappear, find something you love to do, do something can change you. Don’t worry about what other people thinks. You are already phenomenal. You have been born this way. Why are you stopping? Why are you casting down your soul within you ?

Hold on. Hold on what s right and truth.

Cry if you need to.

Stream if you want to.

Laguter when there is a pain

Love no need reason. No need ” a why”. No need” a condition”. Make a chance by a choice ! Do something!

Need a pair of wing to fly ? Than find it somewhere.

Need a ladder to go to heaven? Than search it till to fund it.

Just look up and keep your heads held high , you are worthy. Pull out the truth within you and proof your self you can, you deserve it.

Let see what God says about you :

You are fearfully and wonderfully made;

You can not control everything, but He can. God works are wonderful,
(I know that full well.)

You are not defined by the world but by the measure of only God whom put Love in you and created it unimaginably. You have not been out of His plan , even one inch.

Now , you can sing Hallehuja.

Hallehuja , that you are an overcomer.

Hallehuja , that you are loved.

Hallehuja that you have a God bigger than your thoughts.

You can do something, you can love Him more. Even with a small version of it.

Emmanuel , God is with us ! That is why we celebrate Christmas ! God truly is with you. Jesus born revealed Fathers love to us. This is massive my friend. If you only say and believe Him in your heart , He will come and changes everything in you.

You can believe again!

Behold Emmanual is with us.

Do somerhing.

You are beautiful.

Heaven is for real by Todd Burpo book review

True stories book is/were always my type of interest. I can’t tell where this book were happened in real however , as I believe God’s has own way to show us whats going on after our earthly dead. However , this book written during a period of time. Todd uses his companionship writer Lyenn to somehow use some writing technics. It starts of a book starts with the middle of the story. The hero of story is Todd’s Son , Colton who claimed to be 3 years old went to heaven.
Todd had doubt for the starts but during his stunning sign of heaven He slowly convinced his son went to Heaven. Colton saw Todd’s grandpa , about his future and his unknown sister.

Of course Todd is a Pastor , but the book perfectly shows his doubt and humanness. I was encouraged for the most part of the book. His Son time in Heaven was not strange and so fancy but indeed was a complete holy normal if I can call it that way.
He went. He sat on Jesus’ laps. Colton had small wings. Heaven is not tied up with time and location as we can read manu things happen in such a short time to Colton.

Todd didn’t clarify if human beings are there a spiritual or physical reality ! Of course in the end of book mentioned about Mary mother of Jesus were there, Colton mentioned about John the Baptist although the story is unrelated but Todd interviewed His Son slowly to get to know more what happened in the heaven.

Just get the book and read as neutral person , you no need to be christian to read this book. TODD used a few bible scripture to line this with Christian faith. Personally, I have no doubt God can do impossible, he can do anything , even show heaven to a 3 year old boy, Colton.
Rated : 4 star.

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.

If I love you more would you love me less?

These were the word of an experienced and a law man. Whom found many church’s including a church in Corinth. The hero of our story, who said ” So I will very gladly spend for you everything I have and expend myself as well. If I love you more, will you love me less?”

How much are we willing spending ourselves to others ? Willing to sacrifice our time and effort to rescue someone? Paul whom even was not among chosen 12 disciples of Christ presents his everything to the Church , to the believers , to those even may not know personally but he is willing to love them more. But asking them would you love me less ? Would you even dare after i ve done all things for you. It seems Paul bringing a new culture and injecting this to the body of Christ. That is willing to love more each other. Every single day.

He knows himself as a parent , parent of church. A verse before that He said ” after all, children should not save up for their parents but parents for their children” . He is mature enough now, he passed broken boats and healed many and founded many churches himself. We are here to invest to the new generations of believers. We need to save up for them. Me and you , whom been through many troubles and hardship and know what’s right and whats not. We can inject this to the body of Christ. We dont need to be a church leader to do that. We can do it in our circle of people. In our community , in our schools , in our workplace , you name it.

If I love them more, would they love me less? Where are we in our city? Can we Love someone ? Can we improve this life of ours by loving more ? I am sure we can , I am sure we are made for this ..

Rain Fire War

Relief set upon me when a short heavy Rain came to a dry land of Sydney. The last two months were really tough for this land, for the people , for the farmers. Some people thinking is a consequences of the sins. Not actually my thoughts ! I am speechless although keep looking above and seeking His face. My inspiration is to look in a better line, everyone can be sceptical and negative. Personally , I believe there is enough those negative signals around. Me and you existed to know the better side of us! When our souls fly in a garden of freedom , there will be truly ‘known’ moments. Those moments gives you wings and it keeps you truly in the ‘presence’.

We ask for the Rain. God looks at us and sees his little ones asking for his mercy! But , this mercy freely given. Then, So , He gives double portion to us.


Fire consuming our trees and the lands. I am asking God to command fire to stop. Our people not only suffering of bushfire , also for the rain and water! From this corner of the world – around to other corner of the world. Smokey or non-Smokey days , however are passing , Spring coming to an end soon. We are going to a hotter season , SUMMER.

I am looking forward for a Christmas by a beach , although I’ve never had any Christmas by a beach , yet 🙂 . Hehe. these days my eyes are opened more to the grace of God. There is a bigger hope for all of us. One day we all going to be in His presence. Love of God. Love of His hands upon our life.
War, In another side. People are fired for their simple freedom. How can we distinguish these two fires ? Fires of Freedom and Fires of burning, Both are destroying and consuming! One brining a good result and other one not so good. I see God’s hand in both. I see his justice for both. Although , If his will higher than mine , it does not mean my desires are nothing. It means the prioritising is important. I am terrible in this. I can not recognise which one is which one. But I see I always want my desire be done. I am thinking I know better. I can control of everything. It sounds clear and fine. But , when dead ends arrives I am desperate for a help. How can I win this war? I need to ask better, How can He win the war? I f He is Almighty one , The God of all universe . Then I need to know He is in control . Not only overall control but in every details of my life. Indeed He is.

This Rain Fire War life are here to make me better. Each one of them has a purpose. To gives us a new view. This were exactly Nehemiah’s prayer can be embedded :
Lord, the God of heaven, the great and awesome God, who keeps his covenant of love with those who love him and keep his commandments, let your ear be attentive and your eyes open to hear the prayer your servant is praying before you day and night for your servants..” ( Nehemiah 1 )

God will never leaves his covenant of love. Let me awake myself of this sleep. I can stand tall in the Rain of Life. I can stand alive in the Fire. I can be still in the War. I can be prepared for it. I can keep hope. I can have heart.

It’s okay when there are no rain come to my dry bones. It’s okay when fire comes upon. It’s okay when there is a war. Because In all those God’s hands are in work. I believe it. It will be turned good for me. I am the winner. I wish the wind can hear me and carry this word of mine to her. I wish the sun can see me and bring this good news to fire and I wish ‘freedom bird’ hears me that can tell this to the jungle.

Stand with me. Hold my hands into your heart.

AND…

Let’s look to the bright future.

Go Deeper

I’ve never known that fire has a story to tell. A whole story of a city.

As Sydney has been impacted greatly with the bushfires , we all pray for a drop, a drop of heaven that can cool off us all easy. I am still dazing above..

I am typing these words down as we came from a bushfire storm. Some blaming the climate change , some others put their hands up praying continually as some others closed their eyes and they are in the grave right now because of this cause. Can we blame someone for this? isn’t Australia a dry land by nature?

My heart hurts when I see people walking away from God, Hiding behind the science. Smart people has no explanation about it! Given reasons without right justification. Hours and hours has been spent to debate – the end result : no outcome , farmers business brunt down. People devouring the smokes in their lungs!

I am here to pray for my city. I am not here to blame , give reasons .. I am simply here to ask the love of God for our city and community. We are rolling into sins and idols around. We are so sensitive for our own freedom. We make a cage for a meaning of freedom and put ourselves in it. But , Really , the real meaning of life is what heaven stored for us. Whom Jesus brought the real truth. You can be following your personal legend as Paulo Coelho described it in his the Alchemist book . Or simply you can go deeper , know the real purpose of you on earth.

I don’t know about you , but I wanna go deeper. I want to know the unknown, step into the unsearchable treasures. I want to use the source of light in my heart. I can write a long emotional letter to make you impact , no I don’t want to do it. I want to Holy Spirit involve , It is out of our control , if we just surrender to His will , we can have a best life on this earth and the life to come. Some times , I do not have a word to say ! Just coming here to encourage us , pray for our city, our people , our loved ones. That is my mission remind what hope you are holding on! That , you are worthy. Let’s worship Him and go deeper. I want to be rooted to source of life. That I can keep my heads held high on that day.

Lost City

Last week, it was one of the adventurous day in my life. First , let me say thank you to some of the friends they included me to the Long weekend trip.

We had Monday off here in Sydney. I got an message from one of the friend on Thursday arvo if I am keen to join them for camping about 2 nights. I didn’t ask for the plan. I waited to see some of them in our Friday gathering and ask them my questions in person.

However. I didn’t have any plan for the long weekend. I wanted to write more on my blog and catchup with some studies with certification I am focusing now. Anyway. The work wasn’t busy. Later on after work, I wanted to know more about the camping location.

Friday arvo came. I turned on the engine and drove to our gathering. A 15 mins drive right to my friends house. Shaking a few hands and having a pizza always good with friends. It was a well company and met a few new people.

“Who is coming along ?” I asked. One of my friend whom loves skiing every second week.

“A few number of other friends , it’s not a big group ” He said.

And , He looked at his phone and shown me the location of the camp with a 360 degree view!

“That is nice ” I said.

Then i was tempted so I pulled out my phone to check it with my phone. The place looked like this:

Of course, our camping spot was near to a lake.

God is so beautiful, inspiring my whole heart and renewed my soul within me. I’ve seen so much beauty and wonders. In our way to the lighy worms tunnel. You can not miss this easy , we walked about 400 meters in the dark tunnel to see those worms are alive and shiny. You could’ve seen it to believe it, it was like you are walking in the middle of stars or in a galaxy.

Thousands of stars! Ooops worms ..

Stunning !

God says I have a plan for you, if I can alive those little shiny worms in that darkness ,don’t you think I can help you. I was stunned. I was overwhelmed that God of all beauty is on my side. Something inside of me sparked that how would I know this God more.

Then last night I’ve read my Bible , He said ” I am your Father “. A kind of Father got all power in Him. Sometimes I lose , but He didn’t lose me but He choose me be in His presence. I am a little boy with a greater Father in Him.

I wished all people knew How much this Father love them. I wished they knew if He , whom created the very tiny worms in that tunnel, is able to change things around for them.

He did more. He sacrificed His only one for us that we will be guaranteed for eternity.

We were owed in this beauty and left the place to see a cave. But fortunately or unfortunately we could not pin the location and after 2 or 3 times circling wee backed to the cars and made our journey to Lost City. We’ve been lost already to find the cave but thankfully we had backed to the starting point.

Gush! It was a challenging, the road was tough.

We got there right before sunset. What an excellent timing. I haven’t seen such a beauty rocks before. They are made like the mountains , it was sort of a castle but it was not seem to be.

I silent my self that I can hear Him better.

Rock, Sunset , worms, beauty and the roads were praising Him. Who am I? Staring to the sunset and learning how to love Him.

I learnt to be content. I stepped into a world of unknown. I learnt when I am tired take rest instead of exit.

Exit exists when I stepped into next step.

Lost City with the Rocks front of me .

The LORD is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. Psalm 18:2

We stayed there till sunset done. I enjoyed to be witness of his goodness with my eyes. I learnt to dream more. In Lost City I found worshipers of the Lord God Almighty. I found my heart and I’ve seen the eyes of God right in front of me.

What would be better than this ?

Be kind

Everybody has a signal inside called Kindness. The level of this kindness different person to person. Humankind has been created by Good. Because of a Good creator made us this way.

We can hide this by not knowing there is such a thing and making ourselves an ugly creation. We can not deny it , there is a chance every moment to turn this ugliness to kindness. Just look around how kind God is that He gave everything to you. But unfortunately not everyone acting the way they should.

Kindness can motivate you . It can vanish all bitterness in you by its companion Love. When you are Kind, you don’t show your weakness rather you pass a signal that who you are meant to be. A kindness act , a loving step of help can change the life of you and others.

Kindness has eyes that can see.

People may forgets loads of things but they may not forget the small act of kindness in the right time.

Bible says ;

Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.” Colossians 3:12

Kindness is not to say Yes to everything. But it is a ” I might help ” act.

How can we wear kindness today? In this century.

How can we be intentional to be kind to our fathers , husband, wife , brother , sister, outside and unknown people around us?

Tell me how did other people kindness impacted you significantly?

A lesson : NEVER GIVE UP

A miracle, an unbelievable comeback! We, as humans, it is our nature to draw back quickly when things not going the way we want. If I want to write a letter to myself, I will difinitly encourage myself to this 3 words “Never Give up”.

I love football! I watch football and I play two days a week football. I am truly passion of this sport and if you start a conversation of football with me, It will never be ended. 🤔😬

May you heard of Europe Champions League! It is the one highest football competition platform. By now we know 4 last team which will going to play versus each other. Barcelona vs Liverpool and Ajax vs Tottenham.

Watch this video :

Each, they play 2 games, one at home and one away. Barcelona won the first leg at home last week by 3-0. Last night Barcelona played its away game versus Liverpool. If Liverpool wanted to go to final game must score 4 goals at its home stadium, Anfield . It looks impossible. It looks incredibly hard. They needed to score 4 goals without receiving any goal against a Barcelona full of stars, like Messi, Suarez, Pique…

We encounter everyday a challenge, some challenges are giant and they are like mountain overshadowing over our life. It seems there is no way. We can not find any open’s door. But I am here to give you good news, I am here to encourage us don’t give up, perhaps never give up. Your next open door is right there. Don’t doubt your ability, influence your life first then you would be able have confidence in your God. Be determined and strong. You haven’t finished yet. When He said is done then is done. You are here to know Him and walk right to path of love.

Guess what! Liverpool done an impossible thing, they scored 4 goals without receiving even 1! They went to Final match. Have hope. We can do this. May life be tough and it seems we reach to an end-dead! But that’s not true, comeback, start again. Get a new plan, try again! Be a Liverpool, do your best and see the result. Score as much as you can God is with you. He will never given up on you. Keep praying.

Nehemiah 8:10 Do not grieve, for the joy of the Lord is your strength.

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.
1 Chronicles 29:11‭-‬12 CEV

See, I am doing a new thing!

I walked to our local library , perhaps most of the time I am in the library.

Yep , together we are be encouraged.

For the purpose of this calling , I have opened a new Instagram page. Can you please now go to your Instagram and search for : hhhigh_blog  and follow.

lime-2481358_1920_LI (2)

I am humbled for this calling. Why not? Let’s do this . In this busy world even one word can change my life and your life.

In Isaiah 43 : 19 we read : See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.

God loves to create new things. He loves to renew us. He loves to open the doors of possibilities and healings.

IMG_20180118_105930_113

That would be a recovery challenge – A road from sickness to healing . May it is a trip for you . A trip that known for God.

Sometimes a new thing is unexpected but be ready to move on.

What is way? Way is a road to wholeness. It is an experience to know him better. This way might be harsh , might be nice , might be whatever… What is important ? The destination.

The story may look like the lost son but behold my beloved. The Lost son came back Home.

 

Let us discover new things in 2018 – TOGETHER!

 

 

Much Love
