When the Spirit works in me …

..I ‘ ll be the best runner. I’ll be dancing like King David did, without any fear and shame. Yes , I will be shining in every corner of darkness.

When the Spirit of the Lord works in me , I’ll be hearing like Samuel heard. I’ll be in Love more , in a deep love of trinity. Oh I’ll be like him. When the Spirit of the Lord works and lives in me I’ll be going like Philip went. I’ll be willingly obey the Father like Jesus did , I’ll cry like Jesus did once. I’ll have no arrogant spirit within me , I’ll be kind and love everyone. I’ll be a strong voice for a voiceless. I’ll be the one.

Oh , I’ll be moving and carrying the peace. I’ll shout for joy from sunrise to sunset. I’ll smile when life is brutal. I’ll give hands when is needed. I’ll offer my time when sacrifice desired. I’ll love more. I’ll clap for the God given victory .I’ll have a race with butterfly. I’ll be getting my crown of heaven. I oh I’ll be fearless and courageous. There will be no doubt, no double minded , no ugliness.

I’ll be beautiful like rose

I’ll be singing like the angles.

I’ll be dreaming ..

Now you tell : when the Spirit works in me…

Great Memories Bible Verse

But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.
2 Corinthians 3:18 KJV

Me and you can be likeness of God , to be Him on earth, the same Image from Glory to Glory.

Read the verse above again, this time read it slowly , let your heart and mind pick them up. Read the second time. Do the same.

Now , read it reverse , very slowly. Get the meaning of the word – let it flow into your spirit. Being image of God wipes all burden of this world. Take off the mask of the world from your heart. God is good , he can help you on this.

Much Blessings

Have a nice day and night

Wonderful to me

God’s work and act are like a river in my life. Eveything I see around it’s from the source of heaven. A huge blessing that comes from my Father.

I wonder in how the great father of mine keep all this universe hold together for good. A land that many months with no rain; suddenly God poured out his tears and wiped all dryness of our land. Who can measure his Love?

Let this world bring its trouble, we are ready to move on. Because the greater within us is so much bigger than these oppositions.

Hold on the truth , trust me it’s worth till the end. Suddenly God’s breath takes you to the peace land. You will see His hands lights your way. Come and see God’s love will change you forever. As we have been made by His Love. How wonderful is this truth ? Think about it.

Now comment/tell me in this post:

Which one is bigger ?

My trouble or my God !

A defined moment /1

After a few glorious rain and flood in Sydney. Monday 10 Feb the rain suddenly stopped. It feels we have been all into Noha’s ship and a dove has been sent for a dry land, we suddenly saw the sign of it and we all happily😀 landed now.

I finished Heaven is for real by Todd Burpo and my review is available on Goodreads. Now i am on my third book , reading Confessions by Saint Augustine, oh it is a heavy readying , it seems I am not that fan of classic books.

” O Lord , Our God, under the covering of your wings we set our hope. Protect us and bear us up. It is you who will carry us; you will bear us up from our infancy until old age. When you are our firm support, then it is firm indeed. But when our support rests in our own strength, it is infirmity. Or good is life with you for ever, and because we turned away from that, we became twisted. Let us know return to you that we may not be overturned. Our good is life with you and suffers no deficiency; for you yourself are the good. We have no fear that there is no home to which we may return because we fell from it. During our absence our house suffers no ruin; it is your eternity. ”  -Saint Augustine

When you read those lines you feel there is an honesty in the words , there is a sense of confession and turning to God. I enjoy reading book of confessions by Him , although it is a bit hard for me to be honest; but slowly i am getting into heart of Augustine. He is ruin because of his good friend passed away and because of that he moved to another city without telling his mother which was the closest person that time. Until now He is telling all the way he went and came back to God. I think , he did not have many friends. He was a clever man, looking for the right path of life, he found no eternity in maths and arts as he was in live with those things and so intelligent.  If you are asking me , i think he was memorised bible verses line by line and he has eaten them all. He sticked and injected them all into his life story.

I remember my life, if God was not there for me, if he did not call me to do what i do now , I was a miserable worldly person with no defined purpose. When Jesus made himself real to me , I was not aware of that at all. I was daydreaming, But He; with his goodness grace rescued me and put on the rock. Before my first year school , I always wanted to see school’s door and this was my puzzled question from my mum: ” what does it look like?” ” I want to see school’s door” . When the time came in , when i arrived there; i said to myself :” this is the school’s door that everyone’s enter it?!! “. My curious mind did not know that ” this is it!” I guess i was naive whatever you wanna call it! But , Honestly; God was there. He went before me and prepared the whole school for my arrival. He was counting my tears on my cheeks , as He was looking into my eyes and saying ” Oh my little child, don’t cry “, I was speechless.  He sent his angels to protect me , I was naive but He was artful. I wanted to know more , More about life and people around me.  I was full excited about future and what the unknown holding for me. I wanted to climb the mountain to reach there as i was blown away with his stillness and as a child i was learning to be like Him.

I was looking for a better life. A better life ahead. In a small village next to caspian sea , I have not even discovered the town around me. I’ve been so happy where i was. enough joy within me but God had another plan and new direction for my life.

I’ll talk to you about this more..let’s take a cuppa tea and enjoy the reading moment.

Do your Lap

The weather temperature in western Sydney reached to 47c today. I ve decided to go to swimming pool. As we encountered front reception of the pool. He told us inside pool is closed because of competition. No choice ! We got into outdoor pool.

I’ve done a few laps. Suddenly a pro swimmer complained to one of the life saver at the pool, there are too many people , complain behind complain ! “Why are they diving? Look at that , he is swimming at the line with a life jacket.”

I was a witness to her complain.

My ear was listening and giving the thought to my mind. Do your lap! A lot of obstacle are in front of you and we may have a bag of complains to God , why God this happened to me ? Why God this and that? Why me?

We need to do our laps , rest is with God. I got my lesson today? Swim and swim with no jealousy and comparison mind.

Look at the life of many men and women in Bible. Do your lap , let other whatever they want to do, do . Keep going ! There are people to criticise you , your private life going to be in public measure. Everything we do and see; are temporarily, this Lap of life is nothing compares to the swim of your future glory , the lap of glory is awaiting for us.

I got my lesson to obey and trust God in this Lap of life. Either in the face of evil or in the face of angels. I Do my lap In the persecution or in the happiness.

How you gonna do your lap? Whatever you decide let God be in it. He knows how you can be your best at it.

Let not take my eyes off from your goodness good God. You have always been my comforter. I am here to write a new letter to you. I am here to let you know I can not wait to be with you. There , A beautiful place to be. By Grace , By your love I am starting a new life in you. Let your Power take me over.

And your cross shown me a new prospective of you every day. You died that I can live. Your life is my life. Let your Wisdom God fill my heart and mind and soul.

Not small in your kingdom. I am great in your eyes. Not poor in your love , I am rich already. I am strong already, I am loved already , I am beautiful to shine already.

Let enemy be jealous to me. I am the child of most high king. Let your Understanding God be mine.

“He made the earth by his power; he founded the world by his wisdom and stretched out the heavens by his understanding. ( Jeremiah 51:15)” 

I don’t need any other prove the Lord Made all the earth by his wonderful power, including me and you. I have no doubt to his mighty hands, if I have it means I am weak to understand how big is God and how humbly involved in my every detail of life.

These three aspects are bounded in God’s love together for us: Power , Wisdom and Understanding. His love is too good and too powerful to be beautiful. His wisdom is too lovely to ignore it easy and His understanding is faster than light to be fully searched by us. PWU never dies . His love never dies. This PWU can change our life supernaturally. We need It. I need it , You need it to be whole.

Review of ‘Bigger Than Me’ book by Ward Brehm

Finally finished reading Bigger Than Me (BTM) book by Ward Brehm. Now here is my humble review of this book.  Brehm has written two books before this one; Life Through a Different Lens (1993), and White Man Walking (2003).

As I am not going talk about his character and other related interpersonal things, it is worth for you to have a check on his wiki page.

His wiki page says a short story of him: Ward Brehm

Brehm got a family , His wife Kris and three grown children: Andy, Mike and Sarah. As Ward main job is not writing, He was a business man working along side helping communities in Africa as two USA presidents gave him this mission to serve Africa. He had a lot of trips to Africa. But in Bigger Than Me book he has captured how the first travel to Africa changed his prospective and view of life. It seemed he was full of everything. It looked like money was not issue – He was making good amount of money as his business grew.

bigger than me

In the middle of a good happy financially growing ( happy life) , Their life has been shaken by his wife , Kris, Been very sick! Cancer came upon Kris, They spent a lot of money – but as the sever of cancer was very demolishing – there were no chance even for surgery. But -It was a huge surgery- they did not give up. They went home and prayed. A day after with the whole this shocking news – they kept praying – until a Doctor has been found to do this sensitive ( life and death surgery on Kris). Brehm did not talk about how this news deeply negatively impact their family – rather He was more emphasising on positive thing of the story. That God is a provider and a healer. That How God is able to heal people even everything seems impossible. In the middle of all full life – Brehm found that earthly and material things of this world are worthless. Indeed they were , because no money was able to save his precious wife , Kris. He was experiencing it,very tough. But God do not test people with sickness and bad things at all. He lose himself  and found by God. He understood that Faith is a hope – an unseen hope.

As I was holding the 27 chapter of his hard copy book- seating on the train, am wondering how big is our God! Brehm was sick of himself , he needed time to restore his relationship with God where he can find his true-self. Bigger Than Me has written very well- But the content it seems are very heaver than the size of book. It is not smoothy readable book, When sometime you read a paragraph , and you are saying to yourself : what he is talking about ? You must read it again. Some quotes are heavy. Chapter to Chapter are different view.  A few chapter He talks about the pain of Kris healing – and a few chapter he talks about his healing and rest of other chapters mix of his sons and Africa and other life experience.

In general it is worth to read it . I do not pick books based on famous authors , But rather base on what is writer have to tell about God , himself/herself and other. Bogger Than me well written book by Ward Brehm has been forwarded by Rick Warren- Need to be mentioned that Brehm also brought a few quotes from Warren. In the end of 240 pages of book, Brehm brought 3 pictures which one of the he stood with President George W,Bush.

” Somehow we’ve brought onto the lie that good life is a showy one, But the greatest adventure come when we stop living for self and what the world says is important- and start living  for thing that really matter.” ( In the back book of Bigger Than Me).

My Rate for this book is 3.7 out of 5.

This is a personal rate , also you may find it better.

If you have read Bigger Than Me – tell us how was it? What rate do you give to it? What chapter most talked to you?

Here you can find how to order and other detail.
