****

Hold on and don’t let go of Jesus in your life. In the rain , In the storm and in any situation hold on to his great presence. Everything will fade way , only the true love of God will be alive in you.

Hold on , if it means to wait for a year . Hold on, if it means to wait for years and years. Keep warm your innermost being with his loving arms. As David says “Wait for the LORD; be strong and take heart and wait for the LORD.” (Psalms 27 : 14 ). 

Take a deep breath..

Wait for the Lord..

Be strong..

Take Heart..

and wait for the Lord..

We meant to do this before , We are meant to do this now, We will do this for tomorrow.  Do not listen to enemies’ lies. Do not listen what other people will think. HOLD ON THE TRUTH of JESUS. To His promises , To His Glory , To Whom is LIFE.

Hold on to HOPE.  Think whatever is right whatever is true and whatever is noble and worthy of think . Refill yours with the HOLY SPIRIT. With His Power and With His Majesty.

With Praise and Prayers.

Blessings Promised for Obedience

Promises are beautiful things we can hold on to. We , as human make so many promises but most of the time , we are not able to make them true. It is alright. That’s make us human. Personally If I promise someone , I make sure I stay 100% till end, and give away my best to make it happen. I do not know you, but I am really love to be a kind of friend that will be counted. Why promises are important? Why do we need them? How can I be sure I can live in that promises ? Or what God promised to me? There are so many questions you can ask. But , in this moment I am here to encourage you that ” Blessings ” promises for you , if you obey! If you listen what God says to you. You know there is always if. A father promised to his child IF you be a good buy I am going to by this bike for you. It’s not entirely like that. But our heavenly Father loves us, in the same way we need to love him and this seeks obedience. If we can not obey well, we are going to miss the point and end up with a wrong direction.

Listen to this what God promises to us :

I am giving you a promise now while the seed is still in the barn.You have not yet harvested your grain, and your grapevines, fig trees, pomegranates, and olive trees have not yet produced their crops. But from this day onward I will bless you.”( Haggai 2 : 19 NLT)

 

Our good shepherded promises blessing in our life. In the time of dryness and wilderness. May you are struggling to find a right job . But God promises is bless you even you do not have a job. May you are struggling with a not a good relationship but God promises is to bless you in that situation. Think about that , How his promises change your life? never ever underestimate God’s promises in your life , they are blessing you in every direction.

“God never made a promise that was too good to be true.”
Dwight L. Moody

Obey and see the fruit of it. Let our life shine in every area. From school to our job place. From talking to a friend to talking to a boss. We can be better , we can change the world around us by holding to the promises of God and obeying what he says about us is truth. Enemy hates his promises. The plan and purpose of living God is good indeed. God never took eyes off of you. He is look after you , here and there. Where ever we are he went and prepared us his blessings behind blessings for us. This blessings is not only within us and for us, also it is for others around us too. They will see how blessed you are. How youthful and beautiful you are, your smile , your love and you are act of kindness all together impacts them positively. An unbelievable energy with us – which from above not the world. From the Holy Spirit within you. You are a light. You are a blessing.

Let this be your declaration:

I am blessed , I am loved

Because I have a good Father, because I obey his love

I am blessed , I am strong

Because I have a good Father, because I obey his spirit

I am blessed , I am called

Because I have a good Father , Whom promised me is with me

I am blessed , I am beautiful

Because I have a good Father , whom I follow

 

Promise of God is a new season for you now. Enjoy the blessing!

Much love

I am in awe of You

When I see your beauty , I am in awe of you. When I see how you died for me on the cross that today I can have this freedom and walk in your presence without shame. When I see; you forgive me – this is a miracle. The sun without one turning back shining me your light. I am doing my own thing under the heaven but you are blessing me and thinking of me. I am just do not know what to say. Speechless within thousands words! Lips not moving but heart full of your awe.

I was travelling around Sydney for a few weeks. When I saw the beauty of my God. I just was full of thankfulness and I realised how big is my God. That was a place I felt safe and secure completely. Although there is nothing to compare His beauty – I surrender all in this awe-ness!

 

cof

Let the whole world fear the LORD, and let everyone stand in awe of him. (NLT Psalms 33:8). Everywhere you go , you can see with your eyes how awesome is our Lord. From here to your town , from your town to another. You can feel it and touch it- be full heart of gratitude in this life short on this earth! This is the real love. I am focusing on your promises Jesus. Be glorified in my imperfectness and complete me with your love.

Sometimes God allow us to be us! He is there dancing with the nature – waving with the sea to us. Touching our hearts with a whispering of his wind through the broken window. Even we lock ourselves inside the room- He is there. Trying to come into – knocking the door of our heart. Saying come my child let me show you how big I am.

Splendour and majesty are before him; strength and joy are in his place. ( 1 Chronicles 16 : 27 )

I was always thinking I need a pair of wing to fly above all and enjoy. But I just realised I can fly without a pair of wing. I was thinking I can win every battle by my own, But I just understood this is not my battle to win. I was thinking I can love everyone, but I just got it if I only can love the one. 

Are you fighting on your ground ? stand in his awe. Are you well and blessed in your life? stand in his awe. When we live with Christ our love grows every single day, every battle day , every well day in all situation. And I believe for you as much as I believe for me. We believe in his love. We trust in him that is our firm foundation. We are the overcomer. Just stand in his awe. Believe God can do it for you.

Have you read my book ” 7 things for your soul”?

 

 

 

Truth

“Now we pray to God that you will not do anything wrong—not so that people will see that we have stood the test but so that you will do what is right even though we may seem to have failed.  For we cannot do anything against the truth, but only for the truth. We are glad whenever we are weak but you are strong; and our prayer is that you may be fully restored.” ( 2 Corinthians 13 : 7- 9 )

I am not going to have another bible Sunday school here. Not at all. But I like talk about the truth in your life and in my life. The Above paragraph which the apostle Paul  saying to the church of Corinth actually it is for us .

The real truth is able to fully restore you. It can change your life in a positive reality of being. Your definition of truth it may be different of mine but at least we are agree in this – there is a real truth exist. The real truth remains always nor the time can change it. Paul says that in above sentence ” We can not do anything against the truth , but only for the truth “. Today I am writing about this , I want you to meditate on this words. Because by focusing on the real truth , your heart’s eyes will be opened. You grab a new prospective of the truth and what is it for me? That is why Jesus said ” you will know the truth ( the real truth) and that truth will set you free.” Walking in the truth make you strong , that will impact your whole life, beautifully. You can not lie anymore , you can not steal or cheat because this is not you , it is the truth in you – carrying everywhere you go. Jesus said ” If you only know me ” What does that mean? It means if you only know the real truth. Your chain will be broken and for sure you know what is right and what is wrong.

By this truth we can know his Unending Love ( click here for to read it)

horse-51733_1920

The heart of God , Is truly full of truth. Grab the heart of God , you will not do anything wrong. If we do , we are going the wrong direction. I want us to keep our heads held high with no condemnation. Truth is a helper of me and you in this broken world. I did not know about it , But God of all mercy revealed to me. How and when? By being humble and obedience. Our weaknesses  does not mean we do not know the truth , but ; that means we are strong to accept that our flesh is weak – and fight between flesh and spirit made us weak. It is okay. We are not surrender to the desire of this broken world but we are surrender to the only Son of God , Jesus Christ.

Forgiveness would be possible by the spark of this truth.

Let God change your heart to his truth. Than you will know why Christ dies for us? Than you can forgive others in this truth. definitely you will know what is the meaning of the lamb of God. By doing that , you accept to the holy spirit of God reveals the more (real) truth of himself.

So I don’t boast in the truth but I rejoice in it.

This truth will allow you :

1- Going to the right direction

2- To do what is right

3- To be strong

4- Fully restored

The above four , they are the sign of a growing person in God. But for sure there are a lot into it. For example Before Paul says ” Test , if you are in faith”. Truth , Faith , Hope , Love , they all working together. If you know the real truth , you can not hate the image of God( human ) on this earth. You love everyone , forgive them. You have everlasting hope and your heart is full of life as you are holding to the faith.

Let me know what is your truth? Is it giving you eternal life promise ?

God Forgives Our Sin

John says in his letter. Even we make mistakes , There is a Grace. A God of forgiveness to Love us more. Bible says We all sin and short glory of God. Sometimes we do things we do not want to do. We took some bad habits for a while – then we realise , Hey why am I doing this? This is not what I am called be to do? I am breaking my promise to God. When we reach to that realization we are like the Lost child. We go direct to our Father and I will say to Him. I make sin to you and I broken my promises. What was our thinking and what He was thinking toward us!

He loves us who we are right now.

He cares us where we are now.

The moment we migrate from our old bad habits – our sinful life to the Truth. We move from darkness to the Light. We pass our old thinking to a new thinking of purity.  Because God is Light. There is no lie in Him. We should live in the light. Mistakes are smalls , Grace are Big. He is a Big God. Awesome Father of Love and forgiveness. There is no mistakes that He can’t wipe. There is no sin , that Can’t be wash by the Blood of Jesus. The biggest mistakes are the greater opportunity to learn His love.

John Continues says in his letter ” God’s Son , Washes away every sin and makes us clean ” 

architecture-blank-space-blue-sky-921294

My dear friend, by immersing ourselves into sea love of Christ. If we go into His loving presence with repentance, He forgives enough to reach our potential today. He is not here to limit us but freedom. If someone did wrong to you, Isn’t time to pass away all bitterness. Isn’t enough to reach His peace into our hearts! Let change the bitterness into Peace.

John says ” If we confess our sins, God will forgive us. “

If I confess , He forgives me. Even may the healing took a time. It is normal my dear friend. If want healing and peace of God overflow in your life- it is time NOW. Right Now confess to receive the healing. Right Now.

He is the Eternal Life. The Life truly we are desiring to have. The First Love we always wanting! Thinking about the things are pure and sunny. Haha He is our joy in the morning – He is our heart and love. Enemy always there to trick you, to steal your joy , to stop your progression. Blessings come overflow like a river into your life. You got promotion in your work, You got joy in the wilderness. The good smells of Jesus fill your house. Believe it and receive it in Jesus Name.

The Story of M.. is the Story of Jesus.

OOOps other way around ! the story of Jesus is the story of Mine.. M M M .. Capital M . ME. The story of Miracle is the story of Jesus.

Every one trying to give his/her own idea- If you believe it than you are looking to it in on way! If I am sharing anything here to you know – it is limited into my own world experience only. I am work in progress still. I may know how to drive but I am not know how to ride a horse. So I am so willingly waiting to know your story in your situation , in your city and country which I do not know what it is like to!  This is were Jesus’ story comes in. Jesus healed sick people – He perused Father’s will to be done and shared beautiful love of Him on the earth. But How come this story was so loudly which went to end of the earth ?

If your story strong enough may be loud it to your city – if you novel it; may sound it through country , if it is pretty famous than go through couple of countries and than through whole earth- but may after a few years be forgotten! But what is the story of Jesus remained remarkable after 2000 years plus still a fresh love story. It is not about creating a new own world for yourself to reach there- It is a bout a personal encounter with Him. It is about reality truth ! If it was not real – it should not be survived till now! Because Jesus himself comforts his own followers with love and compassion even there is no evidence to prove it.  Even in the mix of pain and suffering still His followers , following Him without expecting Him more to give. Takes it more; even his loves one need desperately a miracle for healing; crying out to God but nothing happen , Still they are following Him lovingly with seeking face. What is the story of this?

library-425730_1920

Grace is the story of redemption. It is God’s world which has been stolen by sin. I am here to have victory over it. God’s word is enough to comfort me even there is no voice of Help. Years after years , getting older and older; looking for purpose and meaning; But right there my story begins when ” In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. ” Yes your story and my story begins with Genesis 1 : 1 . If we are killing someone , we are killing our own ones. We are in one Family , created by One God in forms of Father , Son and the Holy Spirit. Our story is His Story , because Our journey starts when “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. ” We did not know where to start he knew and he had a great plan for it. My purpose is to testify His name here , there and everywhere! 

My ” meaning ” is to live a life of honour for Him- I am belong to Him and he is mine. He created me to live for Him. I have no other world except His world. I have no other idea and opinion to makes me doubt of ” my home heaven “.  He made me complex and gives me simple Grace. My own choice do not make me better – I will align it with Father’s will; that make it better for me. I enjoy life – live in it freely. I Help others , love them and forgive them. I receive the hurt and pour it out to God’s feet and He gives me strength to endure it. Because He knows one day we will be with Him forever. My teacher gave his life for this story – the story of redemption and freedom. I heard a thousands gave their life – after a while I heard millions of people gave their life to this story. The story of Jesus. Why Cannot I live in righteousness ? Why Cannot I live in peace , love and freedom?

I have decided to make change – A huge change not inside of me – but people around me even there is a lot other stories seems to stole mines one! My story is the real one because it is the story of Jesus- A heavenly story. A story of true healing and redemption. My repentance accelerate much better everyday. Not the word of my mouth only but the word of my heart evidently changed for a better. That makes me be more genuine and faithful. I peruse it to awesomeness. In every daily activity of my life –  home to school ,  home to work , Home to shopping , in the car , on the way .. In everything – My story is the story of miracle of Jesus in my life.

Now and forever.

Abide in my Love

All of us have something inside that pushes us toward to do an act of kindness toward others. Some of us are aware of it some not and some others potentially do not use it as it is. Love is a gift inside me and you. A gift that we can give others and make our and their day and night lighter and brighter. It is not simply a good feeling. It is a real sense of being and joy inside.giphy

Love speaks itself to iniquity and make a bridge to loveable and peaceful life. It gets help from the tree of gratitude that’s fills our day full of blessings and thankfulness. I am more content with it. I am more satisfied with my life and people around me. I love me more when I reach the divine love of God within me. When I realise someone within me look after me – the Holy Spirit.

It costs me nothing to love me. It costs me nothing to love others. It rewards well. It gives meaning to life – A life full of life and love. Love holds no wrong , Gives without expecting to receive. Love stays till end and endure joyfully for the sake of its own. Love loves you. Love never fails you. Love is always with you and supports you . Never given up on you.

“Love is like water; we can fall in it, we can drown in it and we can’t live without it.” ~ Unknown

giphy1

Love does not look to money , popularity and the way you are living now. It does look to the heart through the eyes of human. Love is a fire , a powerful never-ended flame. Sometimes I wish I was little in love in person , I ‘ve never experienced that- but I am more joy and love within me which it is incomparable fact. But indeed, I am in love with who made me be loved! I am in love of Jesus and Jesus is in love with me! Doubt is never part of this love. Am I talking about human love or God’s love. Well – a love is love – with never ending road of peace and joy.

I am in love with his ‘ greater love ‘ for me .

John 15: 9    “As the Father loved Me, I also have loved you; abide in My love. 16 And we have known and believed the love that God has for us. God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God in him.

Take God’s love- the human’s love is in it already! When we Love , God , more , we are more in love with each-others around us. We see that in Jesus – Whom so much loved us which laid down his Life for us. Because he knew that Father’s love will make us free and pure. Actually Love is freedom. When you freely love someone , you are accepting that you are humble and obeyable. We have no love without his love toward us first.

How can we obey this love? How can we stay in this love? By loving him more and more every day and night.

Love is blossom, A white flower to see , touch and smell. It sees beauty , It sees joy and it sees new. It creates peace, It creates ‘stilling ‘ , It creates ‘ better you’. It creates a new soul , bold , fresh . The real true love stays forever , it is not like ride and kiss. It is to be in present . To know someone in the strange place. It is a friend that stays with you in the right time – in right place with right people. It meant to be with you in whatever colours of the sky is.

There is only one happiness in this life, to love and be loved. George Sand

Love is peace , it is a piece of joy.

 

Let’s replace all Love word with Jesus. Now go and read again!

Be awake

We are humans. We fall in love . We break the rule . We make the laws. We love . We hate. We fail . We joy . We feel and touch . We see the beauty and We create the ugly.

Indeed. What is going on inside world of humans. Why some are selfish and Why others so good like angels? As the study of humanity is a great philosophy. We quickly adopt our self to a new environment. We learn how to drive but miserable sometimes to love our neighbours. Indeed , Who are we? A complicated existent! We learn how to speak still we can not spell the real love! I am brining these things that makes us pay more attention that who we are!

If you are young – may you find this difficult to grasp , The concept of being. because still you are busy to know where you are right now. Or may you are busy with your exams. That’s Awesome . Keep doing what you are doing.  Go ahead and read till end this post and in the right time you will understand what do I mean.

My existence is to love others deeply. To be kind to people around me and ultimately everyone. I know there is always someone out there misuse you and try to take advantage. My advise is to stay away and evaluate where you are! If you look at Jesus’s life on the earth. He was always around . Pray and heal and go to another location. Because he was doing what he meant to do. What mission do we have today to follow. What we are doing is it pleasing our creator?

pexels-photo-1179026

One of many differentiations of human and animals is ‘conscience’. Some people pay attention to it – some not. It is very important for you and me to know what is right and just and good to our soul. We need to feed it right and well. Although that related to our culture to – to the family we grow up – to our characteristic . Today we make peace and tomorrow we fight and after tomorrow we reconcile. If God is good to all – we need to be good to all too. Jesus said love everyone. Oh how hard it is. This teaching is so hard. How can I love my enemy , those did bad to me. How can I love my classmate whom did bully. How can I love my parents those left me behind. How can I ? You can make a long list of it.  But God message is simple for your conscience – He says to it ; you love them , you forgive them and I am with you.  In Luke 6 : 27 says ” Love your enemies “.

Past world needed love. Current world need Love. Tomorrow’s world will need love.

My dear friend the ancient Greek formed it in 8 types of Love.  What we are not recognising today is love. We need to grow in Love. We need to understand what is love- a real love is deep and complete in God. We need to be content what we have and inspire each other in Love . Be motivated that we still alive and can love someone out there.

I was out there and I saw an old lady with a full trolley and I asked her kindly that allow me to help her out.  Ask someone may they need your help , be with someone may they need your presence, Know someone may you will be a blessing to them.  A real love is not ugly it may be strong but it always wants good for others.  We see even Bible says Love is greatest. Stay young with loving others. Whoever you face today or tomorrow – who knows you may love an angel! I know the best is yet to come. I know you are good because you have been created from a good good God.

Be awake for Love.

Wisdom Chat

8 days of winter gone here in Australia. It feels cold , some days rainy , some days cloudy and some days sunny. 8 Years I am here in Aussie land. No regret , every days was a new learning and possibility. 8 years to be here as fast as 8 days for me, life is so comfortable to not to be bothered. I just got it now. Be in that zone or other way around still you have challenges every day. At least we have to be agreed in this that ; difficulties are everywhere. ” If you want to be best , you need to try hard “. This is not my word , that is what the world is required! I am here to open my heart to you and have a chat. I hope this would be a good company. I am here to hear your word too. ( just leave a comment ). Before talk lets grab our teas ( I love organic green tea , to be honest: I don’t like coffee I am a tea drinker ; )  sorry I know ).

It looks like more Fall here rather than winter , in this month you see Sydney’s trees more yellow and falling down nicely. I am hugely fan of winter specially in Christmas times when snow ball falling down from sky , It is a miracle for me – you know ; specially when you haven’t see snow for eight years 😦 . It is okay to feel compassion for me  haha

The last two years here in Sydney was like :

th

Now , you can say : SORRY!

It feels like you are in middle of Australia ! Like Broken Hills area.

It is  a blessed country , surrendered by beautiful beaches around. Another thing I need you to tell that still no internet availability at home , I am here right in the library type up what I need to share. Still It is okay ! It is complicated and long story why we haven’t internet ! we have only a few days left to World Cup. Do not know how we are going to watch but I know Australian match will be broadcasted on national TV free of charge 🙂

Just be said can’t wait anymore for the matches to be started ! ; D

 

7df4c8c5-68d4-4fd3-872f-b26751b6bd28

At least , 4 years of my life I was waiting for this moment from 15 June- 15 July World cup games in Russia ! Why I was waiting ? Three big reason because I love football , I play football and I have passion for football 🙂 Please do not go away if you do not love football , I know you still love sport . But recently I was trying to watch a sport which I really do not agree to watch called ” RUBGY ” .

Ooops I even do not know how to spell it 🙂 –  Not offend to my fellow rugby friends. They have passion and it seems they loves rugby :). But I am seeing the real football ( soccer ) fan is growing much and much everyday.

But don’t get me wrong still :

d3eb7f04a8105171e2c7e6f27ce5b942

Okay! To be fair I love all sports , actually I love Chess and play a lot on my phone. Just last week I played basketball with some of colleagues and I enjoyed it even I did not the role of the game. What Sport you are passion about? Which one are you playing now? If not, choose one and go for it : ) or join me to cheer up for world cup Russia 2018.

I think is enough  ; ) lets talk about our spiritual world now. I hope you are reading your Bible . I know you are. I’ve decided for this month( the whole month ) read the book of Proverbs , I am on chapter 8.

Does not wisdom call out?

fun-smile-wisdom-words-spirituality-peace-healing-love-brotherhood-attitude-character-personality-so-navin-joshi

The decision you make it is based on your prospective of the world. The family you grew up have a significant impact on all your decisions. Yes , It is part of impact too when you born in a different country and context. It is all come together and form you view of this world and your brain contains bunch of roles , regulations , cultures and memories. But with God’s help you can form it for kingdom’s purpose. It need a little discipline and practice everyday. You need to reformulate your brain’s wire and restructure and feed it in a right way-well. But All not going to end it , you need grace and mercy , forgiveness and love which definitely you can (ask)gain it by humbly and honestly asking God for it?

Quote : Honesty is the first chapter in the book of wisdom! Thomas Jefferson

Believe me , Godly wisdom will open many doors for you. Your prospective will change , your whole life will change , yours and other positively will be impacted when you hit it by Godly wisdom. You do not need to be a good communicator. You have received naturally to speak ( good and great they are level of your practice ) .

If you are looking for to have fruitful life and wisdom. Keep reading and asking God for it. There is not other place you should look for. Yes , there is a lot people out there can help you with – but why not get started with the source of all Wisdom. I am taking this that you can add this into your life – to be able to make at least a little bit good decisions ( we all make bad decisions by the way )

Proverbs 8 : 35 says :

 

For those who find me find life
    and receive favor from the Lord.

 

Wisdom is life. Wisdom is water. Wisdom is bread. Wisdom is everything.

What type of wisdom I am talking about ?

But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere.  ( James 3: 13- 18 )

Okay , I think we know where we are now or :

What do you think about the above image? : ) funny but true : ) isn’t it?

I think I can not keep typing anymore here in library , Data Got to be  finished.

Before we leave take this with you :

” Get Wisdom , Get Understanding ” ( Proverbs 4 : 5 ) 

 

Have a blessed week!

Hearing a Testimony is so encouraging to not only the story teller but to the listener also. It strengthens us and helps us overcome the enemy of our souls. (Revelation12: 11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death.) Do you have a testimony you can share with others ? If you have been born again then surely you have a testimony and It just may change a person life from the inside out. So on that note I will share about God in my life and who He can be to you! I encourage you to seek the Holy Spirit to help you understand what is being said in these following paragraphs. Only the Lord can give you revelation and a understanding of what is being shared with you. God is a mystery to those who don’t have a personal relationship with Him. He is some entity far-far away in another universe or even doesn’t exist at all. But to us, born again believers God is 3 Persons in 1. The Father , The Son Jesus Christ and The Holy Spirit. He is the Living Godhead. Each Person of the Godhead have different attributes and you can distinctively know who is who as you mature in your relationship with Him.

 

I would love to share with you my experience of the Precious Holy Spirit. My passion and prayer is that you may experience this also and even deeper than I.

 

Who is the Holy Spirit ? Think on that for a moment. Who is He to you ? Do you know Him ? If you have a relationship with Jesus and Father God then you are hearing from the Holy Spirit! How so ? The Holy Spirit speaks what He hears the Father say and His ministry is to reveal and lead you to Jesus. He does not boast about Himself.  John 16:13 However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come. I really like this verse. Something I have often said in the past is  Lord do not let me deceived but always lead me to your truth. If we have a real genuine desire to know nothing but the truth the Holy Spirit answers our desires. I like the last half of this verse even more ! That He the Spirit of God  will inform us, tell us things that are of the near or further future. I do not boast but in the Lord for the Lord’s Glory and that you may be edified. I experience the Spirit telling me things to come very regularly. It can be a burden sometimes or it can be encouraging sometimes just depending on the nature of the prophetic word.

 

He is the One who wooed you to Jesus the first time you felt in your soul a tugging and curiosity to know who is this God. He had planted a seed within you.

 

The Holy Spirit is a Comforter,(In other versions of the Bible the word Counsellor or Advocate are used instead of Comforter this gives us an idea of how He comforts us) as it states in John 14:26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

These verses mentioned in the above paragraphs, amongst many more, are so real to me as they have shown me the Wonderful and Powerful acts of the Holy Spirit in my life not only in my life but it can be just as real in your life also. You can experience Him and His ministry!. Seek Him today !. Not tomorrow or when it is convenient timing ! There have been times in my faith walk in the Lord that I was so confused, terrified and even felt like the enemy had won and that I was defeated. But I continued to keep my eyes fixed and focused on God though to be honest that was difficult. But I hung on to the Lord and His promises especially in the Book of Psalm and also loved Him with all my strength. The Holy Spirit was intervening and ministering to me His comfort and He was my Counsellor. He told me everything is ok and will be ok. That I am in the hands and arms of my Personal Saviour Jesus Christ. I would pour out my turmoils, heartaches and pain that I was able to express to Him and many times just His Presence was enough He didn’t really need to say anything and the pain that I could not express He reminded me that He knows my heart even without speaking from it. We are a Temple of the Holy Spirit therefore the Spirit can use us to comfort others. 2 Corinthians 1: 3-4 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.

 

So next time you see or hear a friend or even a stranger in trials, testings and turmoil why don’t you sit with them and be a representative/ambassador of God to them you don’t have to speak just wrap you arm around them and let them speak or even pour out their  tears. Its truly amazing with such Wisdom The Holy Spirit knows exactly what the weary heart and spirit needs to be told and there is no false flattery involved it is all truth. So next time you feel inconsolable turn to the Holy Spirit and seek Him out. He will comfort you and lead you to the Heart of the Father. Moving along we come another verse which says,

 

Ephesians 6:17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit , which is the word of God.

Wow this verse is amazing to me. It says a lot. In the past and right up till now. When I have engaged in warfare against the enemy. I remember to  take the Sword into my hand and stand firm in the Lord. The Sword of the Spirit is actually the Word of God aka the Bible. Confessing the Word of God out through our mouths has power it is likened to a double-edged Sword as it says in Hebrews 4:12 For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

 

The Sword the Word is the complete truth and speaking the truth and believing in the truth and living by the truth the lies spoken the lies believed and the lies once lived will flee as does darkness when the light is switched on by the Truth of God. The devil our adversary will flee as we walk out the truth. That is not to say he will not attempt and try to steal , kill and destroy ( John 10:10 “The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy) us but this is where we must speak the truth and use the Sword of the Spirit. If I was to only have one verse to exhort you with I would give this verse to you in regards to this topic it is from 1 Peter 5: 6 Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time, 7 casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you. The message I desire to get across is that you must trust the Lord in helping you through your difficult times and allowing Him to minister to you by His Holy Spirit. He Loves You and so do many other brothers and sisters around the World. You have family a spiritual family and our Father is King and Lord.

 

Numbers 6: 24-26

24 “The Lord bless you and keep you;

25 The Lord make His face shine upon you,

And be gracious to you;

26 The Lord lift up His countenance upon you,

And give you peace.”

May

Month of May is here, for us it means leaves changes their color and we have expecting a little bit cold weather; compares to pervious month. Dryness of the season will be seased and flowers and the greens get more water. It is time a dance for God. Having patience to see the Spring. I am wondering where are we now? I have readers almost all around the world. I know you are in different season of the year. I wonder where are you right now? And what do you up to? Because we are almost near the half year and our gratitude need to be lift it up from where we are now. Do you see the wonder of God around you? Have you noticed it? Even with your difficulties and pain. Bibles talkes about it ” for everything there is a season”.

I believe; we are living in the edge.. a generation forget about their identity. Searching and seeking and looking everywhere to find it. Sanctification , seems, it is a heavy duty now, that reached to border of impossible! Living in a world of 21 century and freedom. Millions of information in a second in your hand! Accessing anything at anything! Advanced medical and great hospital facilities! With all that said , miserable to cure human soul and heart ! Forgot where we came from, forgot who is our soul creator , forgot about who died from us , forgot about who we are. I believe God is in work , even we forgot Him , He did not! He stayed on his promises, He loves to heals us. But ” If you faithfully OBEY the voice of the Lord you God “. I want to listen more to voice of God in this Month . I want to grab myself close to Him. I wan to know what will please Him. I want to clean myself from this sinful world and do what not makes me happy but Him because I know that time I am IN real joy and happiness.

I wrote a book many years ago about ” Happiness “. I asked my people around me gives a definition of happiness. Interestingly everyone had a different answer. God reveals himself differently to everyone but the destinations are same. Some said ” I define happiness to help others to love them as they are “. Some said ” I define happiness when I see my children walk with God ” …

abstract-autumn-autumn-leaves-213613.jpg

God of all universe gave us the cure for our soul and body. The cure is to obey Him. Than blessed be your basket and your plate. Than blessed be your household , Than blessed be your bread, if you obey the voice of the Lord. Living in the edge it does not mean , we are done, No. It means we have a chance to come back where we belong. He says ” Come, everyone who thirsts “. It is time to rise up in your community and help someone from fire. It is time to be a leader to lead your people for a good. It is time to be you and brave as you are. Jesus said ” I am with you where ever you go “. Chosen people are protected by almighty God, Do not allow a little fear keeps you hold of the plan and purpose of God. Your mission is bigger than your fears. Behold I made you my people.

So , look to future. B R E A T H E. Means [be] Brave  Refresh Excitement Able Transform Hopeful Enjoy.

We are going to be brave; our God is greater of all.

We are going to be refreshed ; we will renew our hearts and mind to be like him everyday.

We are so excited for what he has stored for us.

We are Able; because He is able than we can do all things through Him.

We are changed and transformed by his grace. Always there is second chance.

We have hope for a great revival in us , in our family , in our community , city and country.

We enjoy the life he has given us in this life and that life.

Take Heart and keep going and always look for a change that can transform your life forever. This going to happen when you trust and let it go .

Wonder of..

I like to walk in  the jungle. In a quite moment of birds’ songs. The songs of old trees. Those trees which clapping for me momently with their beautiful leafs. I like to see people are chatting on the balmoral street. They are old- experienced and beautiful souls. They saw the life more than me. Their houses are a treasure of heaven, Their hearts are most amazing diamond.

How God lovely made us. Different opinion, different look , different love , different approaches.

Perfect love covers all our differences. We are made to be united. From one family, one mum and dad . One, to have full life for a better.

Thousands of voices out there. Right and Wrong are mixed! God is good. Kettle is boiling a hot water. We are in the border of a change! Eating an apple from garden and cooking chicken on charcoal. Swim in a salty water … Life is good. I do not need to be afraid. Short life make a better of me. Wonder of which voice I am listening to ?

 

We are here to respect each other. We are here to love each other deeply. Yes , we make mistakes and we are like the waves of the stormy ocean. wonder of who am I respecting to?

art-background-bird-891676.jpg

Now , My heavenly father , There ; from your throne come and sit in my heart again. Take away my impurity. Give me wings like birds to fly. A voice to sing for you. When I cry count them and replace it with a morning joy. Father, When I see people are dying and suffering because of injustice my heart will break- take it and comfort it . Lord , my mind is short to know your glory. I obey you. Let me know you again. Let me be closed to you. On my way to work , I think of your wonderful jobs in my life. Indeed it was great Lord, But I need a fresh miracle- I need a miracle today to have testimony for tomorrow. I am searching for it even in my unknown place. I am seeking and longing for that Jesus. You died for me that I can ask today- You died for me on the cross that I can have this power to be you and no body else! I do not want to be copy! I want to be a real holy and pure version of you. Wonder of who am I in you? 

People by their act indirectly asking me who do you believe? I am into sinful world Lord. You said me before be carful and know there would be trouble for you but I did not believe it that time- but Jesus please do not ask me again because I can see it with my eyes how people are suffering , how am I deep into heart of trouble! Please give me your hand when I am falling down and lift me up; don’t allow your precise one sink into unknown. Oh my dear One. I want to know you more and every piece of me thirsty for your presence. My inner being shouting for your greatness and love. Where there is no hope I would be your light there. I know myself your ambassador , encounter me with your sunrise of faith where I can push myself to believe you more. Wonder of how can I be used by you?

Now I realise how much you love me. When I took the second step toward you. When I returned home to You. Home is a safe place for me. Let me be unknown here but I am number ONE in your eyes! Where my eternity with You..always.

Love you!

What is your best motivation in life?

This is the question I asked in Quora. I got the great answers from people. About 50 answers and getting more. Sarya quoted that ” You are allowed to scream , You are allowed to cry, but do not give up” . And Debadipa from India answered well. She says my motivation are my parents they are amazing and I can not be here without their support and inspiration. She continues ” I have a coolest dad , He is my best friend. My mum is the sweetest lady who’s really pretty. They  are my role model, inspiration, motivation and everything”. Her answer have about 1400 views and 41 up voted. And Malar answered the same and she believes her MUM is her best MOTIVATION.

mask-3233020_1920

Another person says ” When I wake up in the morning and I find I am alive , I am able to breathe, there is sun in the sky, I am able to see , listen and walk , that motivates me much “.

Martin says ” Your heartbeat. It’s alive. You are alive. As long as you have a LIFE to LIVE , don’t quit”. This is also related what Anand says ” LIFE ITSELF , everything around me motivates me , He brought up a quote for us from Sadhgutu Jaggi Vasudev : ” Motivation lies within every breathe you take. The word motivation is a myth. You are alive and life in this whole cosmos is going on is a reality“.

flower-3219718_1920

There were other awesome answers to this question also, But brought up my question here to my beautiful followers and friends and whoever reading this blog now. What is your best motivation in life? Is it your money? Is it your family or friends or particular person? Is it life itself ? Is it routine of this life and thanking of what you have is perfectly motivates me? I asked this question to inspire us and help us whatever we have in life is a gift. It is a real gift that no one can even offer us back this one again accept the ONE who designed us.

For me the most and best thing that motivates me is to help others. Yes , My mum is a hero , She is the strongest human I know and without her I won’t be here today. But there is a reason for it. She helped me in this world so now my task is help others to know what was the reason behind that. Mum said ” by His grace I am here today “. That was the reason she was strong. I want introduce you to the Love of God and His fullness will give you meaning in your life.

No rules can help you without knowing who He is and what He is done for you.

This was the same question the young rich man had from Jesus( Book of Matthew 19 : 16-22 ). He asked Him. Rabbi , what do I do to get eternal life? We are so desperate for the life after death. Because we had enough of this life. We had enough of negativity and war in this miserable world. The same question we ask God. Even may our rational mind to stop it. Even may we do not believe there is a God with all suffering in this world . We ask: God How can I get to you? I am tired of this world. The young rich man asked exactly this question : How can get to you in there? I am motivated enough in this world and have confidence to ask this question. I want to be perfect , how can I be the one you want me to be? How can I be perfect and whole?

You know what Jesus’ answer was. ” your money can’t get you there, Follow Me “.

Following him is the best way to motivate humanity.

If you want to be motivated talk to him , listen what He says , walk with him in all your ways in this world. Yes there is a time to be down because we are living in sinful world and we can not avoid it anyway. If you want to be perfect follow him and submit all your ways to Father in Heaven. You can not find this perfect motivation in carnal mind but instead having a spiritual mindset. The young rich man said ” What do I still lack? “. We lack his presence in our life. We are following our selfish way everyday without asking Him for help. We need to look at a permanent motivation. Small and everyday motivation will comes and goes. Life itself gives you enough energy to move on. Proverbs says ” Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding”.  Walking up every morning and saying I trust you God in all my ways. Please lead me today and lift up my motivation for everything I do.

Psychologist Jordan Peterson quotes ” Don’t underestimate the power of vision and direction. These are irresistible forces, able to transform what might appear to be unconquerable obstacles into traversable pathways and expanding opportunities. Strengthen the individual. Start with yourself “.

Start with yours with believing to supernatural things in your life. Not by our own power and ability but the Spirit of God.

Jesus in Matthew says “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible“.

What is your best motivation in your life ?

In His Image!

Wisdom, That is all humanity need it and it is my desire to have it too as a deposit to us from Heaven. People make things complicated and hard . But we are inherited in Christ to be simple and wise in all way. By wisdom you will truly know who Jesus is.

As a young person in this generation; I don’t need more of others , But I need more of Heaven to be applied in my life. I need more of truth. That is , surly; Free me from my unjust and unbelieve. By the truth; I am free from the smell of humanity and wearing the smell of heaven on this body.

Also , By wisdom , Not only I understand who is Jesus plus , Something will be clicked in my heart that I will realise what He has done only for me. Oh , How selfish I am , when I reach to understand of heaven? Being said that , I am learning who am I here and what my mission is! And why this chaos world need me!

people-3120717_1920

Suddenly , The lamp of my heart will be on- I’ll be a new person – changed truly by attitude  right inside, love myself in a new way and found the way to forgive others easy. The thing were important one day; they aren’t now! My most priority is now get the wisdom and apply in my life – that is the way to reach to his level. Because , my eyes ae open wide like ocean , filled with his light and salt. Now, no matter how this world will treat me , because I am not belong to it, I am hanging to His greatness in a second changed by His grace. My action, thoughts are trying to line with Jesus’ Love.

I am his gift on the earth, no matter how old I am because I know his giving me eternity; a new soul- right back like His original image.

He is so much richer and more powerful than anything on earth and above. I’ll be given same power as Jesus, a much higher than any position and title in this world and another. I’ll keep proudly my head held high in everything I do all over under His unmerited favour and Love.

I offer the below song to my fellow bloggers and reader ; Called “don’t turn away”:

 

Don’t turn away

Don’t turn away

 

 

I hold my head high

I am pure in your sight

Don’t turn away ( Jesus)

Don’t turn away ( Jesus)

Your face , L O R D , I will seek

Don’t turn away

Teach me your way

My heart leaps for Joy

Speak to me

Teach me your way ( Jesus)

Read: Ephesians 1 : 15-22

Start Small!

” Whoever is careless with the truth in small matters cannot beh trusted with important matters “ Albert Enistein.

Start Small is one of the practices for becoming a better character. Ram Dass and Mirabai Bush mentioned in their book called Compassion in Action. The big things start in small part of our life. Our daily habits makes our whole day and week and month and eventually we got the entire year. When we are claiming the stairs we can not fly from step 1 to step 10! We take one at a time to clime to the top. Our lessons for today is a bridge for tomorrows success . Our main growth are dependence in this small steps.

Even Jesus spoke about this matter : ” “One who is faithful in a very little is also faithful in much, and one who is dishonest in a very little is also dishonest in much. ( Luke 16 : 10 ). When we start small we need to be honest than we have proved we deserve to receive more and in much. Courage is one of the key to have a go for this quality as Winston Churchill once said ” Courage is the first of the human qualities because it is a quality which guarantees all the others ” . Start small is start small move. You are helping yours to be a better person , a man and woman to face the reality.

When Jesus started his ministry , He spread out his message slowly ( by the plan of the Father). Each they street to street proclaim the good news of heaven.

Thomas Oppong in his article highlighted this ” You must first make a commitment. You have to decide that you really want to make a change or transform your life this year, and that it’s more important than almost anything else. And find the things that eat up your time that are less important than the changes you want to make. ”

nature-3184889_1920

Indeed there is a need , that is ” Change” and fight to find the ” Why” that will allow us to know why we are here and taking progress everyday. If you know why you do believe in Jesus Christ, you will definitely know about eternal life( a whole meaningful life). “We started out to get a computer in the hands of everyday people, and we succeeded beyond our wildest dreams.”-Steve Jobs. The big dreams do act for small pieces. You are matter , We are matter because we are helping each other somehow to fulfils the great mission.

Father My prayer is; you bless our little small step everyday. You know how much is valuable our small light in this darkness world , Please make it big. Please take us there, Please while we are here on the earth give us potential to more forward for your kingdom. Lord we can not do it without you, Hold our hands and teach us how to take these small begin. In Jesus Name

Intimacy with God

We are searching for the answers – a mountain of unanswered questions. We keep them one day in one place , it would be answered. Father God , But I am asking you only to all my uncertainty and questions that you only know my heart! I want to be one step closer to you that may your smell of truth gives me some peace. I am not here to search for answers only for whole my life but I am here to know you more and waiting to get to you one day.

You have designed me like Yours. Your fingers paint my heart and my soul rejoiced in you. I’ve flied but my wings has been taken from me now. Lord , you are the one said to me ” follow me ” , your whispered still are whispering in me. Each year, each season , each moment I get to know you more. When I am more in pain , I am more closer to you, is this the way you want me to be closed to you! Certainly not ,  in pain or in joy , in sickness and in health , I have always looked to you and you have been the same. Wear me your armor of Grace and forgiveness. Able me to love others unconditionally. Let me see from your eyes , Be like what you want me to be. I am going to full trust in you. Even may my mind cannot comprehend it.

pexels-photo-531972.jpg

In your garden of heaven , gift me the crown of life; A new sinless body. As you are building my house there, Can you paint it with your best colour there? Also , I want to be huge window that will be opened straight to your Glory. You are my friend , I am yours.  Heaven is the place which me and you can spend time for eternity. A perfect place to be. There I am able to count stars. There, I am able to walk on the waters. There , I am able to see you, face to face. There , I can take the fruit of life on the trees – Able to eat it. Drink water from unlimited fountain of life.

∞ Life!

It seems the limitation of internet access affect my blogging here. I wanted to write to you a few days ago but I couldn’t as I do not have internet at home at all. Yeah , Such a shame ! living in the heart of city but no access to net. Anyways but I see it as an advantage to keep up my soul fresh by reading bible and others books. One of the book I am reading ( almost finished the reading of it ) called When to Jump by Mike Lewis.

I have been crossed by one of the fascination story of Barbara Harris whom became a bishop. The first black woman to be in this position.

She said in her 3 pages letter ” If you believe in what you want to jump to , then I encourage you to make that leap of faith and not to be timid. Make that leap, and see what the end may be. That being said , first try and make a plan. Think about a way you can maintain your lifestyle in case the jump is not successful. When I first considered ordination as deacon, I had to think through how I would support my self. When I became a priest , I could not maintain myself on a priest’s salary. I had to have other ideas. I had to have a plan. ”

Such an inspiring book. There are a lot of short story of people who changed their career and how they became successful. I definitely recommend you to read.

**********

Okay. How are we? I hope you had a chance to read my latest short book. If not please do a fav to yourself and be encouraged today and go to this page to have a copy of it.

The words are highlighted these days for me, is LIFE. But not a temporary life , An Eternal Life.

My-home-is-in-Heaven.

EL is the most vision of us. It was the vital words for Apostle Paul. Paul and other disciples knew that ( further in their journey they realised more) the gospel we are preaching be accomplished on the earth only , that would not be forever gospel. If our God is unseen God , We believe and hold on unseen things we also have to believe eternal life. A beautiful hope that will never and ever perish. You know! We see things and act accordingly. But in spiritual realm we do not see the things and can not act fast and respond it. Some people out there do not believe to anything on the existence of the things. Still with all great philosophy topics they could not answer the simple and important question of life.

“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.”

Having a heart to heart relationship with Jesus shift our view to an eternal prospective life.

 

I am waiting for that day, that everything be revealed to us as mirror. We see the true but we can not recognise it. We do know the right things but we do wrong instead.

Everything is not flesh. Our small mind can not comprehend the big thing of spirit. I had a couple of conversation with a friend many years ago, He even did not believe that we have spirit.

He-who-lays-up-treasures-in-heaven-looks-forward-to-eternity2

We are Spirit. Because with this Spirit we can worship the only One. “I believe… the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting.” I believe eternal life commences after the second coming of Jesus and the resurrection of the dead. I believe there is a place for punishment. I believe there is a heavenly place for those have a heart to heart relationship with Jesus.

N.T. Wright argues that “God’s plan is not to abandon this world… Rather, he intends to remake it. And when he does, he will raise all people to new bodily life to live in it. That is the promise of the Christian gospel”

 

Pray :

Father , I pray that you give a new prospective to see the things the way you see. Open our eyes and heart to see and understand they way you are. We are waiting for your coming back Jesus. We are waiting for you Jesus. Let us hold to the joy of eternal life till we see you face to face.

This is my first letter in public about this topic. Don’t take it personal. Digest it easy.

Yes, There is a time you wished someone would be along side with you. But singleness is a blessing. If God plan is for me to be alone on the earth right now- So it is what it is. I am talking from Christian prospective. I do not know what  would be singleness without Christ. Perhaps , May I would not be single if I was not Christian. Because there is something in Jesus keep you warm and safe. You feel it when you walk with Him everyday. And Apostle Paul sense that presence that is why He said in his letter ” Sometimes I wish everyone were single like me—a simpler life in many ways! 

A simpler life in many ways. That is true . indeed true. But it is not easy. Single life has own challenge and obstacle in front. But in many ways is simpler than a married life. I am not here to encourage us ” Oh stay single forever, Nah , I am here to encourage us that if we are single and desire to have someone ( opposite gender ) it is better to wait for God’s timing “. Temptation is so many in a world of sexual disorder ! am I trusting God. Each valentine’s day is a remembering God’s love either we would be single or married. It is great to love someone. But it is greater to love someone loved us first.

valentines-heart

Bible sayStay where you were when God  called your name  ” . Be Proud to where you are and to who you are. And Also to who you becoming. A pure heart have a smile in any situation. Our spiritual life is so important than our body life. It is Spirit of God , who will make us alive in heavenly realm. There is so much pressure around you , Yes I know. There is much things going on around you , Yes I know. Be still and shake off all dust of this world and pray continuously as Jesus did. I met a friend today on the way to library He told me that I found someone and I am dating today (Valentin’s day) , He Said ” Dariush I am looking for someone to get married , not girlfriend “. I said ” That’s great mate “. Indeed , that’s awesome you found someone go for it , but a single rose and go for a date.

Friends , Stay where you were called to be. God is there. Hold the high ground with Him at your side. 1 Corinthians 7: 24.

Your life is complete with or without marriage. Our life is hidden in Christ , It is a gift to be YOU.

Vaughan Roberts in His article on the gospel coalition talks about four things God says to singles that : 1- It is a gift 2- it is an advantage 3- it is hard 4- It is not permanent.

All of them is right and true. We got Jesus on our side, the best of best and the king of kings. Let your gentleness and your kindness be known to people around you , not a making up love but a genuine love which company’s with Heavenly Father. Sure, soon or later The God of everything , who died on the Cross for us will give us all the answer.

C.S Lewis in his “the four loves ” illustrates beautifully about affection , friendship , Eros and Charity( Agape) loves. But the Agape or unconditional love of God is greatest of all.  

Father God , In Jesus name  we came to you. You are the one we can trust. You  are our first Love. We hold on to you very closely. We allow and open our hearts to your endless love. We thank you for eternal life. We thank you for everything you have done and you are going to do in our life. Here Father I pray for singles and married people, Pray for any human being that all are in the centre of your attention. I pray that they experience your unconditional(Agape) love. Where , There would be no lack of affliction   and attention. May your word will be done to us.Amen

Review of “Love like you have never been hurt!”

This review is only for first chapter! of ” LOVE LIKE YOU HAVE NEVER BEEN HURT “

Normally I do not mention or put any review from other books. But I need to confess that this book is so different of others. It is something powerful- honesty in it that will attract you.

Jentezen Franklin always have been my inspirational pastor. He speaks from his heart. Recently , He just finished his book called ” Love like you have never been hurt “.

jen

His book will release on 6 March 2018. He released first chapter as free. And you can read it here.

As I have finished reading the first chapter, this book is so different from other books he has written. He has so much more life and grace experience. I am going to talk deep about it here further. He put his story in it beautifully with an honest word. It is like He is setting in front of you and pouring out his heart and hurt. Yes , He has been hurt severely. Which I assume it is not separated from all of us. Vulnerability is not a sign of weakness but that shows your strong and brave to move forward.

Genre:

Introduction starts nicely with an old proverb. The story of how a dog be loyal when you treat the dog well. I am not sure what he was pointing exactly but it seems it is about life and us.  He gives you small bite of his story  , Cherise ; His wife  is with him long the end of chapter one. I am sure we are going to see her name all over that book. Now in the main story, He is telling us his real challenges. “Life gets real! ” He mentioned. 

Mostly , He talks about His struggle with his marriage – I mean 100 percent of chapter 1 is about how they had really sever life test. Their little young teenage girl hanged out with wrong crowed. One day Him and Chersie drove down – 3 hours about to her university and took her out of that circle. 

It seems the name of book taken from a verbal communication from other people. As he mentioned ” I heard someone told me love like you have never been hurt “. He Nicely pushes us to whatever struggle we us , we need to TRUST. 

Lisa Bever Commented on this book and She said ” A profound message on the power of unconditional love . A must-read ” 

The questions is here. Why Jentezen sharing his personal life struggle with us. Everyone of us in any degree have own challenges. He even shared ” His arguing ” side with his child. The most close answer it would be ” Love “. A father is a father when puts everything first for his child.

My recommendation :

This book is perfect for those family they have teenage kids at home. With this in mind also great for those they do not have any children.

A Noble Girl!

Today is in my heart to encourage the young ladies. Who may feel small and not being seen by anybody. I am going to tell you some great secret about you and your heart may overflow with Joy.
Bible says : A woman of noble character who can find?

pexels-photo-567455
It says in continue She is worth far more than rubies. Let me before to explain and see what our thoughts will say about that – let us understand what is a noble character ?
I will start with my life. from a man prospective I am always looking for a girl of my life to be noble. There is so much in that simple word need to be said. Who is noble girl or woman? Also you can judge me with that as well! You may say where is the noble man around? But I am going to talk about a noble girl. Who is generous , humble , princess. A girl noble does not mean MUST be so beautiful to be attractive. Not at all. For me it will never be that option- However because all human sight is in their eyes – they see in the first look and judge through that. I hope I have never done that much. A noble girl has a strong character. It is interesting for me , I have never met so many girl with a strong character. What do I mean by strong? It means they strong in attitude. I don’t mean strong in muscles. Look at this what bible says :
In proverbs 31 : 17
She sets about her work vigorously;
    her arms are strong for her tasks.
But it seems point it out she is also spend a lot of energy and effort to work be done perfectly. What it is says her arms are strong, means they are strong the work or task of life be done. She is not scare or have any fear of future. Why? Because she knows and trust her God and she does what she does. Not thinking what will happen tomorrow. Where can I find a good girl ? In the house of God? In a busy street? In a club? In a school or university? Where ever we find them, you need have the noble character carry with you.
In proverbs 31 : 25 says :
She is clothed with strength and dignity;
    she can laugh at the days to come.
Are strength and dignity your part of your daily life. Do you have a great hope for the days to come. Or are you girl busying yourself with a wasteful time people. Respect all. But what are boys looking for? Is it not a noble girl? I am not saying Naïve. You should be smart but cloth yourself with a dignity attitude of love to everyone. You know what are your limitations. what is right and wrong.
Your word need to be full of wisdom and understanding. And if you are in  a negative environment you turn it to a positive and loving caring with the help of Holy Spirit. Why? Because your God is an ‘ able ‘ God. He can do impossible and so you can. Think about that what Jesus would do if this and that happen? You are full of Love and caring for people. You work hard and know how to rest in God everyday. Laziness ! there is no place for it. You girl!! always looking how to help people and give without expectation of returning. You are favourite in the eyes of God. I love it!
You are worth more than you can imagine. You are wise. Your tongue bless others by telling the truth. You are beautiful inside out. Who is the noble girl? Whom have fear of the Lord. Any man going to praise you. Because you have all the original quality of what God says in the bible. You are not a product but a beautiful creature made for Love and care.
In proverbs 31: 29 says to you:
“Many women do noble things,
    but you surpass them all.”
Yes. You are. Keep Heads Held High. You are the one made wonderfully and beautifully. Before the creation of the World God intended to made you beautiful for all humanity. So keep your spirit up and be lift up and rise and shine everyday noble girl of God. I love you because you are a noble woman of God.

God help us!

In another hand, I got an email from our pastor to vote about same sex marriage plebiscite in Australia.

Australia passing the darkest days , these days. It will be unknown persecution to the body of Christ in Australia , not only to people of Christ , Also it will be a huge bad hit to family union , to the society , to our generation in school! If you do not know in this case , Somehow Australia government stuck to legalize same sex marriage or not and these days are the hot speech in parliament house , also Australia government spend $122 Million dollar to send a paper survey sending to home of people to vote. ( Although it is not really important, if politician can say no even Australian says yes). But I urge my fellow Australian blogger enrol and vote , do it according to your conviction in Christ , Bible clearly says how a healthy and proper relationship would be! This sickness came from darkness and can not sallow the light , But light has more power and break even it seems the darkness win. We are called to be light in the darkness world. Whatever is your circumstance now , I declare it in Jesus name , your situation , your problem , your trial , your hardship has NO power because There is NO other name except the Name of Jesus Christ. BE FREE RIGHT NOW. There is no bondage can hold you because you are child of KING of KINGS. There is no idea and opinion or philosophy is able or can separate us from your TRUTH Lord.

Oh , Lord we do not want to be destroyed like Sodom and Gomorrah. We do wicked things without knowing that is really not pleasing you! We bring it under love umbrella. Now dear Father look at your children in this beautiful land, have mercy and do not let us to be burnt in our wicked things. Awake us , awake your people. Were is prophet , where is your men we can turn to? It is only you God , we can come and the really answer is you. Send your angels but this time not for destroying but for rebuilding God. Where is the  brotherly love  , where is the sisterly love , where is your hand Holy Spirit?

Are you not that God led your nation Israel and crossed them from huge red sea? Are you not that God , Promised Abraham ” for the sake of ten , I will not destroy it. “. Let 10 prophet of you, Jesus arise in this nation and build it again and all these wicked things be away from your people. Till , we are waiting of your return , perhaps 10 past generations been waiting for you but still you are watching and your spirit is hovering over the earth.

I am celebrating this life.  

I know there is much more. With Faith. I know there is much more even people confused what the real love is. In our imperfectness , He is perfect. In our mix-judges heart , He is just. In our mix-light and dark world He is brighter than anything white like snow.

 

I will dance with all pain.

I give thanks to you Lord , Rise up , O God and defend your cause.

 

My food for all these days was Chicken soup and water J . So Pray for me and our family to get recovered soon J . I love you !

Faith is Colourful.

..The life I now live in the body, I live by FAITH in the Son of God, Who loved me and gave himself for me.

Faith is not a motion or emotion. It is a real thing we deal. If you believe it heart fully it will take you to next step. So why these days we do not see much the real faith around, because there is no genuine believe in it even, our self-conscious are not active and sincerely believe it. So what is the reason of it? The short answer would be : comfort and not whole heart surrendering everything to Him, to another word not believing in unseen or the things we can not see.

When we ask something we need to believe it to happen for us and there would be no doubt and hesitation or not going to happen. 100% your heart , your soul and your mind must believe that will happen. To satisfy your mind; it is up to you to fix it up , Tell your mind be silent and listen to heart to believe it. Because doubt is like a wave in the sea takes you anywhere. You believe in Jesus Right? You believe in His Name Right? So now you are asking things like from Son to Father. You and I need to believe our Father is able and can make us new. This needs our faith to be colourful. Faith in healing , Faith in word , Faith in Jesus , Faith in better things ahead , Faith that He is able.

Let’s think about this. If my Faith can change me , the things and people around me , why not to taste it and believe my Father( God ) is powerful. There are so many example in the Bible about Faith from Moses and Joshua to Paul and Jesus.

Faith is a lovely Mum’ sing – La La La – for her kid, Faith is a really honest and genuine friend that will never let you down. It is a beauty of blue ocean. It is a lovely tree that will bring in all four seasons all kind of fruit. It is a sun will shine in your life.

faith

Faith is colourful in the black and white world.

John [3:36] says ” Whoever believes in the Son has eternal Life.. ” so Faith has an everlasting attribute to attach. If you and I just believe , How our world will change. Believe in Him not in our limited ability. Faith in His powerful wisdom not in our limited understanding. It will not take you back , it will push you forward. Faith looks the best in people and change their life forever and ever.

The first channel is to believe in the Blood of Son. You are gone 80% of the way. Believe in the Holy Spirit and Father , you are gone 99% of the way. The 1% is believe in You. That you are made in the image of God and your likeness of Him now.

John [3:18] says ” Whoever believes in him is not condemned..” and ” Whoever believe in me , as scripture has said,

rivers of living water will flow from within them”

This river is within you, and will overflow gratefully. It will bring life and peace to you and people around you. It will supernaturally provide all sort of needs on the earth. It will heal us. It will revive us.

The problem most of us is , we so much flash-back. People are healed still go back and talk about how miserable I was. Testimonies are good in a better way to encourage others. But some of us till living in past – there is a better future are ahead if we only believe and have faith God can do great things ahead. Lets talk about the beauty of heaven and future . Lets sing praise and good news of Christ. Lets speak life to each other. Lets make decision and this pain and suffering will be away by the Faith in the Son of God.

” Go” , Said Jesus, ” your faith has healed you “..[Mark 10:52a]

Forgiveness is Freedom 

Recall my forgiveness post. Today I want to talk about the necessarily of forgiveness in our life. Why is important, why do we need it. Why the ignorance of this important in our life may in the long run affects our daily life. Can we have a good life without it?

I am always look into the positive and strong side of it. People are saying find your weakness and work on it and cover it fast. I am saying find your strong side. In what you are good at even in the little things , you may say is nothing . That is your strong point.  Are you good at encouraging people? Develop it. But the heavy lift of some thing from others , block it? So let it go and tell your self I’m going to talk to them. Forgive those they did bad to you. Forgive , forgive and forgive . How many times? seventy times seven! People saying don’t be naïve he or she first have to take the first step. I am telling you that take the first step and go ahead say to them , you forgive them first. 

People are saying enjoy life , why are you hurting your self , why are you always go first , He/she did that to you, do not do it.

I am saying to you my friend , do first , forgive first , love first. Nothing compares to this, Love do not compare , Love do not do wrong . It is always forgives. Are you in love? If so . Melt it with love. 

Money , property , car , land , home , lust, material things in this world  are temporarily. Forgiveness , love and kindness stays forever.  

Grab the bible and open up Matthew 18 : 21-35.

Read about it , how Jesus lead you to love and  forgiveness. Apart from anything in your life , apart from all bad things happen to you and it seems are unforgettable , there is always hope for you. Here now even in your darkness night , there is a bright morning.
