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.
The still small voice is within you shouting to change things, even take the next small decision of your life. Would you hear that voice? Or the million voices out there, taking the authentic voice right away from you. We all have fake voices in our life, which are not from “the still small voice “, they steal our identity, they steal our time, they steal our braveness and boldness. We need that kind of confidence that everyone boasts for it.
That is where Jesus calls: "Here I am! I stand at the door and knock."
Where would we be without Jesus? How can I know the true voice of the Holy Spirit within me? The secret is opening the door to Jesus.
Perhaps, The best decision we can make is, back to the first love of God. As a young person in the 21 century, I need to live a life that honours God, who I am, and my plan on earth as a lover of God.
People have their plan, ambition and love; We receive all those from above-directly from Father’s hands.
Two things I am trying to learn: How to love God? And How to love his people? Both are hard to accomplish but possible! and Three things I need to gain more, Who God is? Who am I ? and What is eternity?
I guess – All, we can learn and grow by listing to the Holy Spirit. He teaches us about the Father’s plan; I am still a baby- learning how to walk, how to eat – but by his grace and Jesus’ blood, we can get closer to Him.
Where the still small voice led you? How did he heal you? What did he teach you?
Well, When I opened up this blog several years ago, my intention was( and is) to inspire individuals. I wanted to write; when you read my post, you feel rest; you receive a breezing breath in the world of a political, social, rational and broken world. If you have been following me a long time enough, I hope my writings have been a blessing to you till now. New generation people need confirmation, need acceptance, love innovation, unique and marvelous things; I get that; I totally understand that how do you feel when you Facebook/Insta/ and other social networking platforms are down. But, they are not here to define who we are. I don’t need to remind us, but I urge you, my dear; We are made in God’s image. This world wants us to be furies, spiteful and in a rush for everything. Our call is to rest and grow in the Spirit. So, you are one of the brave ones.
This blog is the place of rest. Let it be.
Have a rest with me here. get your tea/coffee or if you love ice cream, get it and enjoy it. Sweet spring is here in Australia. And, I am awe of these days as I see the lockdowns are melting away soon, I mean very soon. The smell of the flowers is in the air when we truly love each other and let forgiveness be our friend. Our streets are quiet as usual, and you can see the mask on the faces of people. Sometimes, I doubt if they can smell the spring or that it will somehow stop the season’s allergy. I smile, either under the mask or unmask. Because I know that is the unseen medicine of every heart. ehh- you say; good boy! whatever..! God! Thank you to whoever reading this post now! They are truly my friend. Amen. That is my prayer for you, and I am so happy you are here. If you are new to my blog- don’t worry; we can be good friends. Just come and give me a couple of likes as the sign of reading and your presence as I pray for you. Not a worry at all, if you don’t like and comment, I still love you. I’m not here for likes and comments. But they are the bonus; of course, our rewards are stored in heaven. I wanted to be a speaker, thinking about it – but that won’t be my option. I may be a voice, hmmm-an an invisible voice that can be echoed across the nations one day. ooof- Why am I tiring with these non-sense words? I feel sleepy; the time is 11:25 pm- I guess it is getting late. Let me finish with this quote of life: “Everything you can imagine is real.” ― Pablo Picasso
We don’t mean do the life alone, invite your friends here.
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.
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?
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 :
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 :
Rest in the shade of this tree while water is brought to wash your feet. Genesis 18:4 NLT
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?
We continued Jonah’s story. God said to Jonah: ” Go to Nineveh.” Jonah went, ” The opposite direction.”
Have you ever felt you are going in the opposite direction in your life? Well, I felt, and I have been there. It was the mushroom season in our small local town near the Caspian sea. The small village was near a vast Jungle. As a regular season, we went to pick the wild mushrooms. There were indeed delicious and nice-looking ones. Some were eye-catching ones. I was near to my family as I do not know where to go and which direction to take – If you had ever been to a vast unknown jungle, you know being close to those know the way how vital would be. Four of us- on the way to pick some mushrooms- and only one of us know the way. Suddenly my brother and I lost the two others. We were thinking of going the right way – but we were in the opposite direction of our homes. But thank God, after about 2-3 hours, the other locals found us lost and showed us the right way. We are running away in the opposite directions! Whether we do it intentionally or unwillingly. We do it because we are living in a sinful world, and our natural response is whatever is not comfortable – ” I’ll ignore it” – or ” I know the way”. That was what we thought; when we had lost in the jungle, we felt we are going the right way – but oh, it was the opposite. Jonah intentionally was going the opposite way. God said to him, go to Nineveh, the great city. But, It seemed Jonah was not ready to go there. Sometimes, God calls us; He passionately wants us to do that or do what he wants us to do, or go what he wants us to go. It may be because of circumstances and other excuses – we ignore to obey. The good news is here, still, God loves us, but we will learn to follow in a complicated way, and we go through a journey to learn those lessons like Jonah. The ship he was going on to Spain – got in dire trouble, the storm/wind was hitting the boat hard, and nearly all the sailors lost their life because of a person named ” Jonah.” So, They kicked him out of the ship. But Jonah’s life never ended there- God needed to Jonah be in a quiet location where he can meet Him even inside of a giant whale. I’m here to say to you, my friend, if the season you are in left you out, God will catch you up. He wants to have a quiet moment with you – that, there you will realise what it means to follow Him, What it means to obey Him – even you may not understand it. Your opposite direction is not the end of the story, but it is a sign of lesson and love. You might be going to Joppa like Jonah. But, it will be a time to go where God told you to go in the first place. He designs your destination. The journey might look scary – but He promised to be with you. Does God want you to go with him? Does he want you to be in a quiet moment? That is where Jonah found Who God is? Inside the belly of a whale. Where is our place?
In the next post, we found out How Jonah prayed and How things changed in favour of Jonah.
Hi Friend, Today is the last day of our 14-day immersing in God’s word devotion. 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:
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?
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

Friend, Friend, How much I love you; if this post blessed you, warm my heart with your comment: Reblog or share.
In the Bible, the Book of Ruth is one of those books that you can not miss its’ story. This fascinating book is like an elimination game. The country of Moab is the start of the story. Three men, three women, are kicking off the beginning of the book. There was a brutal famine in the land of Judah, which is part of today’s Israel country. A couple moved to the hill country of Moab and stayed there.
I don’t know about you, But personally, How hard it would be. I know moving to another territory, or even a country, is a life-changing decision. The husband’s name was Elimelech, and His wife name was Naomi. They just got married and happily moved from a city named Bethlehem to Moab. Life was good for them, and everything was smiling at them- and they decided to have two children’s name Mahlon means ” sickness”, and Kilion means ” destruction.” And, suddenly, Elimelech died. It seems, before born of children, their father died, as we can see from the meaning of their children names.
Naomi was devastated; her beloved husband left her alone in a foreign country- but only for the love of her two sons- She stayed alive to feed them to be with them and to love them. So, She did what she supposed to do as a mum and wife. Her sons grew up and found a job in the Moab. They got married, both of them, to Orpah and Ruth. And, Suddenly, their husbands died. The loving sons of Naomi left them again; her husband’s wound still was there, and then two other huge damages added to her suffering.
The dream of living happily in a new country was just a dream. Naomi wanted to see her grandchildren; Life was brutal to her and her family. The “sickness” and ” destruction” came and gone.
” While Naomi was in the country of Moab, she heard that the Lord had helped his people.” Ruth 1 : 6
She did not give up; she stayed strong in the eyes of the Lord. However, life did not show her a good sign of love and laughter. If you are in the country of Moab, Do not worry- the story will not end there. Can you hear the Lord helping his people? Can you?
” So Naomi decided to leave the hill country of Moab and go back home. Her daughters-in-law also chose to go with her ” Ruth 1 : 6b
I am saying there is a time to leave the country of Moab. Your suffering won’t stay forever. Your wounds will heal someday, do not stay – have a move; God will look after the rest. The home is not too far! Stay strong. You are going back home- where you belong. The end story is better.
” They left the place where they had been living and started walking back to the land of Judah.” Ruth 1: 7
God is with you; even you are Naomi today.

Friend, Did this post bless you? Your warm comment encourages my heart. I am so glad you are here.
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?
Written by Dariush Youkhaneh
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.
As a human, we need essential life items like water, food, shelter, and cloth. Sometimes the human’ needs go to the top of a roof. With a quick search, we see 1.6 billion homeless people scattered across the globe. They are wandering around with a permanent place called home, all because of their various circumstances. In this world of shaky, we need assurance, security, and protection.
Apart from our physical protection, we need spiritual protection too. God can provide both – As king David says :
” God is our protection and source of strength. He is always ready to help up in the times of trouble.” ( Psalms 46:1 )
Are these ” times of trouble” means only spiritual needs? Or does it mean both physical and spiritual? For answering this question, of course, you need to see in what situation and circumstances King David was. We can apply this verse to our daily prayer and ask God to assist us with physical and spiritual needs.
If your trouble is in finance, ask God as He is always ready; If your concern is in health, ask Him to heal you as He is always there to help. If your problem is in a spiritual matter, ask Him to strengthen your faith.
So, our today’s troubles are an opportunity of being better in all aspects of our life. A strong person in the Lord face the trouble; walk up through it bravely. Our source of strength is not from the earthly source; instead, we look up for help.
Contemplate God’s strength on your life.
” God will command His angels to protect you wherever you go.” ( Psalms 91: 11)
In other words; In times of trouble, God will send his angels to protect you wherever you go. Your protection is guaranteed, and an angel is serving day and night to protect you from the enemy’s schema. You are protected.
Questions to ponder: In which area of your ” times of trouble” you need His protection? Do you believe God is your protection and source of strength?

Friend, Your comment on this post will warm my heart. Would you care to share? If this post blessed you, let me know.
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.
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.

Beloved friend, My heart also is happy to have you here, I hope day 3 of
14-day immersing in God’s word blessed you. Please leave your word of encouragement in the comment as I love to hear from you.
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.”
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.
In the book of first Samuel, we read a remarkable story of a broken woman named Hannah. Hannah was the wife of Elkanah. Elkanah had two wives , One with Children, another one without Children.
I don’t imagine how hard it would be for Hannah, hearing mocking words from another wife of Elkanah and telling him that she can’t carry your heirs, she is not your favourites one, I am, because I gave birth child for you. Hannah was tired of those words, but she didn’t stop praying and pleading with God for a son. Years after years, Hanna was going to the temple of the Lord, pouring out her heart to Him. Can you imagine? You pray and pray nothing happens? I suppose many of us been there and know how hard it would be not to hear from God. The Bible captured the last answered prayer of her for us :
And she made this vow: “O Lord of Heaven’s Armies, if you will look upon my sorrow and answer my prayer and give me a son, then I will give him back to you. He will be yours for his entire lifetime, and as a sign that he has been dedicated to the Lord, his hair will never be cut.”1 Samuel 1:11 NLT
Those words were so powerful and known for Hannah. He was praying day and night. The point is here we ask God so many things but not to return to Him; we want to keep them eventually. But, if we reread Hannah’s prayer. She prayed, “I will give him back to you“. Are we willing to give back to God what’s belong to Him? By asking these questions, we reach the point that God hears our prayer. God indeed hears our prayer. Hannah gave his vow that she will dedicate her unseen-yet son to the Lord. You keep trusting and praying that seems for others meaningless. The priest of temple, Eli told Hanna ” throw away your wine”. Could you give them the reason for your belief? Tell them ” don’t think I am a wicked person, for I have been praying out of great anguish and sorrow.”
” the Lord remembered her plea”
He will remember our plea in due time.
” in due time she gave birth to a son. She named him Samuel, for she said, “I asked the Lord for him.” 1 Samuel 1:16, 20 NLT
Ask the Lord for your needs; ask the Almighty one who can grant your request in no time. Your needs are not old in the eyes of Him, they might look like unanswered ones, but God answers them in due time one by one. God hears even we think He doesn’t.
Hannah said :
“I asked the Lord to give me this boy, and he has granted my request.” 1 Samuel 1:27 NLT
In other words, the Bible tells us, Hannah asked and received; you give it a try!He hears us.
Now, we received the promise, it is time to give Him back, Our praise and worship to Him:
“Now I am giving him to the Lord, and he will belong to the Lord his whole life.” And they worshipped the Lord there.”1 Samuel 1:28 NLT
What do you need to ask God again? Keep asking, don’t give up. He hears you.

Friend, I hope Day one 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 13 more days.
I have always dreamt of being the one God called me to be. But, you know we are human, we make mistakes and thank God we got the throne of God to go for, and we can confess at the feet of Jesus. I am asking God a new strength, a new powerful strength all over us, which in the time of weakness we can rise and stand firm. Sometimes we caught up in our daily routine, Work-Home-Church. God who created us knows everything about us. He knows the details of our lives. I am amazed, and our God does not stick in our daily routine. He sees us farther. We call him day by day and week by week- He is ready to give us a fresh wind from heaven. Jesus was getting this fresh wind every day by going to Father’s presence and pray. I think we can do the same and even more. We can go to Father’s presence and ask Him for mercy.
Whatever reason people are fighting for is not worth the future God provided. There must be a reason God breathed into us and made us like Himself. The painter knew how is going to draw the paint. Jesus knew; that is why he said, ” Remain in me, and I remain in you.” our ultimate goal is to remain in Him, not remain in the world. The problem of humanity is this; they want to remain in this world forever instead of remain in God. And the answer to all our questions, all our doubts and unbelief will be found by remaining in Him. Whatever you wish, whatever you ask, whatever you want, whatever you look for, indeed will be given to you – if you remain in Him. Jesus got this. He remained in Father’s love and business. That is the area most of us are blind to it. Merely, we ignore it – because we scare of unseen things. We can get started with an elementary baby step: loving ourselves and appreciate God for our being. If you can do this simple task, then you begin to grow, you’ll ask the question, I have loved myself, now how do I love others? How do I eat solid food now? , you can end your baby steps by loving others without expectations. I think it is enough for now; I hope the above made sense to you. I summarised for us : 1- Remain in God 2- Love yours 3- Love Others Jesus Got these, Can You?

Friend if you’ve been blessed, why not share this post to others?
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.
“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.
Oh God of all times, I am a sinner. Keep my eyes up and forward. I need your lovingkindness to forgive all my mistakes. I need your hands to lift me into your presence where I can rest. Your bountiful Spirit holds me safe and secure. I need you to restore me the joy of Your salvation, transfer me again from one to another, from old to new—a complete restoration of my soul, heart and mind. Would you allow me to build my life on your Word again? Would you lead me with cloud and fire?
Your merciful hands – all I need. The touch of heaven- all I want. Remember, your first love, remember, I am dust who will return to it. Your glorious face can turn my mortal body into a burst of sunshine. Rebuild my life over, merciful Adonai.
You did not leave me alone here! But I see you are fighting for me over and over again. There is no doubt, and there is no sin, there is no – nothing can separate me from Your love. I look up.
“Believers can walk through this world with Heads Held High, carrying the dignity of the family of God as lords and ladies of the kingdom of heaven.”Let the weak say,” I am strong”(Joel 3:10).” -Reinhard Bonnke
O Jesus, Son of God.
Please do not take your Holy Spirit from me. Change my world with your presence, O Jesus, put a new song on my lips. Let me see your face- let me be a new person, a new river of blessing that my soul will praise you forever. I am a sinner. Wash me in your blood. Would you immerse me again? Then, I say – Thank you, Father.
Let God take me to his loving arms. Like a child sleeping on his mother’s chests. Let his presence change my inner soul. I’ll be like David, dancing on my own. To him, to him, I surrender my soul.
Let His wonder take over my life. I’ll accept that. I’ll be like Mary, praising him on my own.
I love him more. From far, I’ll be running in awe. To him, to him, I surrender my soul.
Father’s love, keep me close, your passion made my way, as Moses choose me to lead. Choose me to love. Choose me to faith. I look above as Abraham recording the stars. To him, to him, I surrender my soul. To Jesus, to Jesus, I surrender my all.

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.
Powerful words in the Bible. The words in the Bible are life-changing. They are mostly simple but breathed with the oneness of God. During your lifetime, you are encountering heaps of words. Negative and positive, short and long, significant and insignificant. When you go to church and listen to the preacher, they use Bible words, phrases, verses and sentences( hopefully). There are so many outsiders when they come and hear – although the (mighty)Bible’s words touch them. Here I tried to bring you the most ( significant and influential) words in the Bible ( KJV version ) and for the faithful Christians are so familiar.

If you live in an apartment in a busy town – and look down from the balcony of your unit, you see people are walking into each other and hurrying to do something.
I am interested to see what will happen in the next 50 years from now. Our life is changing dramatically. Artifactual intelligence (AI) and the Internet of Things(IoT) will be ordinary, and Electric cars are already hitting the markets. The machines are taking over human tasks. Those are exciting news for most of us. With all these new technologies, we are still struggling with our IDENTITY.
If I give a blank page and tell you, please draw’ the identity’ for me; what will you draw?
The oxford definition of Identity is “The fact of being who or what a person or thing is”
The Bible definition of Identity is “We are made in the image of God “, As I brought to you in my previous post. God breathed His life into us – then the simple meaning of who we are will articulate in who HE IS. So, Our core being is not defined by the things or affected outwardly. We may see it on the surface, but heaven’s connection shapes our inner status. That is why so many of the new younger generation are struggling to find themselves, and they look outside, look and love to be seen, desiring to have always new and shiny things. There is nothing shady to have a big dream.
We see Identity as not something that recently comes up like a mushroom; we had this issue in Jesus’ time. There was a man called Matthew whose job was collecting tax for the government. He had access to the treasure and money; perhaps He knew the meaning of having a lot of money and sometimes unfairly collecting tax more than expected. In between, He heard Jesus came into his town, and it was the best time for him to look the life from a different angle. Matthew, A short guy, went above a tree with his expensive outfit to find his Identity. He did not care this time. Perhaps there is a Man in the town, can answer all his questions. Although Jesus, ‘the master of freeing people’, was there to bring his Identity back. Jesus’ presence was enough for Matthew to enlighten his heart. Matthew brought back Home. Then, he suddenly realised and asked this question of himself; ‘What I have been doing whole my life? Money!!! I give back four times more for those I unfairly treat them.’
Our Identity is not in the things. No, even, it is not in another person. Nothing wrong with having the stuff of life; the question comes with loving the things. Our Identity is in Galatians 5: 22
But the fruit of the Spirit is love,joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.
Heaven is our Identity.
Lose your life to Jesus, and you’ll find your Identity. Lose your life to Him means to be in connection with Him. Means walk in his way, coming back to Him, even we may make a mistake – but coming back to him with a repentant heart. Where do we find our Identity? At Jesus’ feet!
We are in the middle of Autumn in Australia. As the deadly covid-19 virus still claiming the lives of people around the world. By now , most people found a way to deal with it. Some are taken the vaccine, some are waiting to take the vaccine, some are escaped to the rural areas, some other staying away from the city centres. And sadly others are mourning still.
It seems , the life styles are getting shape , like a clay under hand of a potter. Still , most of them , carrying the luggage around from the past to present ,hurting themselves and others. The smells of cold winter days are ahead and still we are not ready for it.
One thing that life can teach you is to be patient, it is ‘when’ and ‘How’ to apply , it’s important.
We almost listen to everything, looking to anything , going to everywhere we can , travel as far as we are able , altogether we forgot listen and look to whom created us to be. Being wise means have a secret life with your creator. Sometimes a prayer can change You, your inward life can hear and respond with a Joy outwardly. Let’s get rid of all luggage. Let’s look to our Jesus. In our workplaces, in our homes , in our interaction with one another. Like a train moving to its destination , let us move to our destination. I know we can do that, something in you is stronger than anything out there. Keep your energy focused to the finish line with endurance. So , practice your Faith , Practice your love , practice your hope. Rick Warren well said ” Living for God’s glory is the greatest achievement we can accomplish with our lives.”
A glory full of grace and truth. Because He is God. He is Worthy of all. You have a purpose in Him , the sweetest thing in life isn’t about how Great we are , nor how rich we are? It is about glorifying him in the way we think , glorifying him in the way we feel and glorifying in the way we act. So , it is not about tomorrow , it about your ‘Now’! Be in the season , use the talent God given you to be more like His Nature. It is Autumn here , the yellow leafs are dancing for a brighter days ahead.
Comment how is your season going? What does Glory mean to you? How can you bring glory to God in your life?
We love , love , love our Mums. It is a Mother’s day in Australia. Actually, we need to celebrate the Mother’s Day everyday. They deserved to be honoured. I offer , the entire world’s flowers to MUMS. To all Brave , Strong , lovely Mums in the world.
I always thank God for you my friend. I pray for your faith be strong and stronger that you can stay like a tree rooted into ground , hold and firm. Because God’s beauty has been given to you. You are a diamond in a defiled world. You are like a river flowing throughout the earth. You are a sunrise beauty – coming to shine to everyone. Our faithful God keeping you close to His glory that you lack nothing except to encounter Him as your Lord and saviour.
He , whom is faithful also keep you steady. He will cause to keep your eyes fixed in Him till the end. Be solid like a rock. Be kind always to all. When the world going down , you go up and up. Because your only trust is in Him. That makes a city glad, because you are the part of army of loving God , appears like Angel on our planet. You carry all the heavens gift within you. Use them to destroy enemies schemas. You can do all things with Jesus. His Love will melt every heart. His Love is always inside of you.
..To you Lord , have mercy on us. O God , enthroned in Heaven. Have Mercy for the people of India, who are in pain and sorrow of sickness , have mercy ! We keep looking to you Lord , not others. We keep seeking your high love for all nations! Let Your wings of mercy covers it all, Let your angel of heavens comes and protect.
I lift my eyes and to see your wonder Lord. To see people gets free ! We are in edge of losing our everything, but you are mercy loving Father, you are Just great God. I know and I know that I can put my TRUST in you.
You are special treasure in God’s heart. Like the earth, made special possession for you, to live and know you are here for a purpose of belonging. Water is an unique element on planet earth also You, You are unique person on heaven kingdom. Travel all galaxies for a billion search and back , corner by corner and in the depth of sea and soil, I assure you, there is no one like YOU.
You are wonderfully made by a wonderful creator. Your inmost being made beautiful and majestic. You are not an earth-like person , rather a heaven-like soul on earth , like an angel. You know why? Because you are chosen ! A soft gentle looking ahead to do more remarkable things. Don’t tell me about your problems !!! You got someone within you bigger than any problem you are facing! You got the Power.
You are rare , there is no copy of you anywhere. Than , why are you waiting for ? Take your uniqueness with you and change the world. There is no hard-pazzel that you can’t solve ! God is with you and place you in right location. You meant to be light in the darkest venue. Because you are the Light. You can move the mountain. You can throw out your all issues into ocean. Just believe! Just love.
Your smile makes the world happy ! Your believe changes the atmosphere. Your Faith moves you and others.
April is here. It seems Corona calmed down in our towns and all restrictions gone with the winds. People back to work as usual with trains , buses and their own cars. The environments had a breathe for a year of rest, the jungles , the trees , the greens and the rivers, all had a year of restoration. The bad people got back to their own wicked way and the good people continue their charity and ministry to the world. Not only that we back to our business of Love, to love people, to love one another.
The sun is brighter these days. It doesn’t bother the skin any more. The guitar man playing his instrument in a better way. The world still does not have the power of unity. In Kolkata poor kids still looking for the foods. But there is Hope. Which just Christ brought us a few days ago by coming out of grace alive. If our greatest achievement measured in this world , we are missing the point. To seek Him , to find Him. As St.Augustine of Hippo said “To fall in love with God is the greatest romance; to seek him the greatest adventure; to find him, the greatest human achievement.”
We miss the point if put all our Hope in our human achievement! Difinitly , we enjoy God’s victory he has given us here , on earth ! But, not our ultimate hope! Our greatest hope and love is in Christ alone. It doesn’t matter how look like for others. Caralyn Collar says in her latest video ‘I am Free” as she has given her testimony of recovering from anorexia. God changes lives. He is the master of all seasons. From opening the red sea to calming the river on a boat. From rescuing a nation of slavery to rescuing whole world through His Son Jesus. “I have come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” John 10:10b.
War isn’t stopped yet ! Injustice isn’t stopped yet ! Peace is far reach for the nations to come. But Christ is calling for a life more abundantly. A life full of eternal hope for all nations. Can we hear his whisper call of life? We all equal in his Love, no one is less! Everyone of us got His attention. He looks at us such a way of incredible and unexplainable Love. That is why He adopted us to his family. God is not going to change his Mind. So ,I am here with my everything within me , inside out , to proclaim his goodness. His faithfulness has reached to far and farest nation. I am wiping my tears when I write this to you that How much he loves you!? I am not tired to say this to you my dear friend! Yes , to you , are reading this. He loves you so so much. Where ever you are! He is there with you. He is ” a calling ” away. He is “a prayer ” away!
“I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.“ John 10:11 NIV
He isn’t here! He is risen from the dead, just as he said would happen. Come, see where his body was lying. Matthew 28:6 NLT
The fascinating story of risen-Jesus turned the history of human kind upside down ! He has Shaken all our human logic and philosophy! No one , no one like Jesus you can find quietly like in any history book. He meant , what he claimed to be . He did , what he said to do. He rose from dead after three complete days of silence and sadness! When I have read this story first, I have said , “How could’ve be possible ? ” The question of ‘how’ bombarded from everywhere in my mind ?
The answer only could be found in the book of Holy Spirit. As Jesus shown himself to his disciples after risen from the tomb. Also, In many occasions during that time till now , He has shown himself to all his true disciples. He has risen from the world of darkness to the world of lightness that we can inherite his kingdom, when we can rign with Him.
He has risen to give us a new world , to be with him.
He loves you so much! Unbelievably much more than you think . That is why he rose from dead ! Oh , how Great is his unmeasurable love towards us. He didn’t defend himself , he kept waking to the Cross, as blood and water were pouring down from it. My precious Jesus was hangged on a wooden cross and later laid down in an empty tomb. But that was not the end of story , but a new beginning of eternity in Him.
He is Risen. My Jesus is not in that tomb any more. The angles are dancing in Heaven as the King of Kings , the Lamb of God has risen from grave.
His resurrection brought healing to our broken world. We can hold on to Him forever now. His resurrection gives us a new / fresh start of reigning with him. His resurrection brought peace to our disturbance world, where our souls can truly rest and restore. Are you with me? Than, keep calling Him, He is alive and ready to be sought out.
Let Praise and Thank Him on this day.
Father God , I am thankful for your Son Jesus , who rose from that tomb that I can be alive again. Thank you Jesus for your love toward us. In your Name. Amen.
Sometimes we are speechless in prayer. We can’t pray as the burden of the world to much to present. But God knows , He gave us victory in Christ already. He is working in out life. He given mind of Christ to overcome any situation. I remember when I was about a decision , I didn’t know what’s the best one would be or what’s the worst one ! I needed a hand of God to show me and direct me to the right path. I had a short prayer from my heart and I went to act what was the best in my eyes. I remember, Gods hand worked according to my good and He turned the bad to good for me. I was stunned of His faithfulness. God works for his people , for his chosen nation. You are his nation , His chosen one.
Had a great a soccer training last night. What a fantastic evening to break the mid-week , to play football with your team mates. As you know we won our division trophy last year! We went one step up and this year we will be playing in a new division with the boys. I say ,God : I thank you for being with us in all steps.
I am sharing my victory to you in Christ. To know that , we give thanks in all and all. God gave me vicoty at RunWest event run. As you may know from my posts , I did a 12km run competition with fun times. It was a fantastic run. About yesterday got an email about official photos of Marathon are out , the below are some of them, to God be the Glory :
These are some of the mements of vicoty in Christ for me. 12 km run under 60 mins ? Indeed , It is a victory ! Praise to be the One who know the heart of every human.
When I felt , I can’t do it , God says you can , push a bit more , you will celebrate the victory at the finish line. Same as you my friend, don’t give up keep praying, keep pushing to the finish line and celebrate your victory with God. I know life is harsh, I know you ve been hurt , perhaps all of us got that scar of life. Run for the prize, don’t stop ! Close you eyes and have a deep breath and say ” God thank you for the victory of Christ in my life , I will finish the race by the help of you.“
It is Palm Sunday pluse my run event. Mission accomplished! Managed 12km under 60mins .12km run in 58 mins and 30 seconds.
Spacial Thanks to those who made donations to hospitals.
It was a smooth run road , they have chosen nice spots as we had only one top hill to run. I am surprised to my performance, however I could do better. I think running up hills consumes my energy more and drained my last 2 km abit as I was trying to catchup my breathing. I like the medal, at the back of medal is written : ‘Tough time don’t last , Tough people do ‘…
Today is the day of celebration of entering Jesus to Jerusalem.
We read this story on book of Matthew :
“The disciples went and did as Jesus had instructed them. They brought the donkey and the colt and placed their cloaks on them for Jesus to sit on. A very large crowd spread their cloaks on the road, while others cut branches from the trees and spread them on the road. The crowds that went ahead of him and those that followed shouted, “Hosanna to the Son of David!” “Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!” “Hosanna in the highest heaven!” When Jesus entered Jerusalem, the whole city was stirred and asked, “Who is this?” The crowds answered, “This is Jesus, the prophet from Nazareth in Galilee.” Matthew 21:6-11 NIV
Hosanna in the highest heaven.
I hope we be a people don’t turn from Him when circumstances change. The same people shouted for Joy , a few days later shouted to crucify him. I hope we continue be side of Hosanna, no matter what they said.
Hosanna ,will help us today , tomorrow and the future. He is Jesus. He is entering to your town. Would you cheer him up and continue so? Would you keep him tight in your arms and don’t let Him go ?
You are not alone ! You will never be. You are enough. You are in right place , the place need to be , the purpose of God is not far from you. Let’s keep this secret on our heart. The change is near!
