Let God do the Miracle for You, You just be IN it

There is another fascinated story in the Bible, right in the first King book. Please don’t go anywhere, Because we are going deep down of it and learn some lessons, which hopefully would be beneficial for us. Give your full attention and read through the below lines, of course, you are allowed to take a cup of tea and enjoy the reading ūüôā

There is no other story in the Bible that a prophet or someone can stop the rain except Elijah, and he is from Tishbe in Gilead. Tishbe was in today’s Jorden country, and throughout Jordan, temperatures rise to 30 and even worse, the south of the Jorden can reach as high as 37 to 40 degrees Celsius. God took an excellent initiative step and suggested Elijah go across the Jordan river where the Cherith Creek is, Jordan valley, as bibleatlas.org brought us the map. Elijah was so familiar with the area, he stayed there, and God fed him by ravens, day and night. God prepared the most needed item for Elijah, Water from the creek and food for above.

King Ahab and his commanders are looking for Elijah. The rain stops pouring to the country of Jordan; as a result, only Elijah have the king-key of praying to the Living and loving Lord to have mercy upon, that the rain would resume. The sweetness of the creek was good till that dried up also. Elijah looked around; it was dry and waterless. And it was time to get direction; His soul was on fire, The Living Lord sent him, He was sure about everything. As he was in prayer, the Lord spoke to him again to move to the town of Zarephath.
“Would you please bring me a cup of water?” Elijah asked a widow near the town centre. God already prepared the way for Elijah; God spoke to a widow beforehand to give him food. The very unusual thing is here: the widow herself didn’t have any food left except a handful of flour and a little olive oil. God didn’t choose a rich man or woman to help Elijah. He is the God of miracle behind the miracle, glory behind the glory; nothing can stop the living God, for his plan and porpuses are greater. He chooses the weakest; he chooses the unwanted; he chooses those who starve to death; he chooses the outcasted ones- they are the real deal for God, those who don’t have anything to offer Him.


"Everything will be fine," Elijah said.


How can it be? Runaway from home, the King and others are looking for him and thirsty for the water at the foreign town asking a widow to give him a cup of water.
This is the same question we might ask God. We see ourselves in the struggles – not ending, the finance problem, the family issue, the health struggle, all are coming towards fast, without delay, and we are reaching to the point of “really God? Where are you?” All those obstacles seem real and legitimate, but God is greater than any difficulties we may face today and tomorrow. Elijah had confidence in this because he believed his living God was a provider, unknown future? Maybe. Known God? Definitely.

Elijah had security in his heart that the living God would look after him; it does not matter where we would be or what situation we are stuck in; he is there- ready to provide.


With a handful of flour and a little bit of olive oil- a miracle will be there; the widow and her son never ran out of it. Do our flour and oil need a miracle? Do we need a talent? never.
We are chosen already- our job is to be in the miracle, available as a sun in the sky.

“You are God’s prophet!” the woman replied. “Now I know that you really do speak for the Lord.” ( 1 Kings 17: 24 )

What are we waiting for God to do for us? I am waiting for something; everyone has a waiting list of things that He only can provide. Offer them to God – let him do the miracle for you- you just be in it.

When you hear the voice, Would you answer it?

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?

Love is Home by George MacDonald

A poem by George MacDonald, Love is Home

Love is the part, and love is the whole;
    Love is the robe, and love is the pall;
Ruler of heart and brain and soul,
    Love is the lord and the slave of all!
I thank thee, Love, that thou lov’st me;
I thank thee more that I love thee.

Love is the rain, and love is the air,
    Love is the earth that holdeth fast;
Love is the root that is buried there,

    Love is the open flower at last!
I thank thee, Love all round about,
That the eyes of my love are looking out.

Love is the sun, and love is the sea;
   Love is the tide that comes and goes;
Flowing and flowing it comes to me;
   Ebbing and ebbing to thee it flows!
Oh my sun, and my wind, and tide!
My sea, and my shore, and all beside!


Light, oh light that art by showing;
¬†¬†¬† Wind, oh wind that liv’st by motion;
Thought, oh thought that art by knowing;
    Will, that art born in self-devotion!
Love is you, though not all of you know it;
Ye are not love, yet ye always show it!

Faithful creator, heart-longed-for father,
    Home of our heart-infolded brother,
Home to thee all thy glories gather-
    All are thy love, and there is no other!
O Love-at-rest, we loves that roam-
Home unto thee, we are coming home!

How can you be in the world of chaos? Can you be like Jesus? Can you be in Peace? Can you be in Love?

It was two years ago – we’ve been free of restriction‚ÄĒthe world with no wild Covid-19 virus was at least freedom. We could go to Church, and We could go to our schools and workplaces. We could go to restaurants. Now, we almost forget about how and when was the last time we gather as a community!¬†

Let’s turn off those voices and see what and how can we be like in the chaotic world?

If Jesus was here now- what he would do? Was he able to move around the city by city and preach the gospel of the kingdom of God? 

How can be in this world of unbelief? Everyone looking for their benefit. A country is taking over and goes in a completely wrong direction. The distance is getting more and more between families. How can one be the agent of peace in the world of chaos? 

Being Jesus on earth:

The very step of every human is to be like Jesus. Being like Jesus means to obey what he commands. There is no religious mask over a like-Jesus person. There is no double-minded here and there. They are not perfect but trying to be like Jesus. They are quick confessers and know others win the race is essential, and in the meantime, they keep their race in the eyes of Jesus. They know nothing can satisfy their thirsty souls but Jesus himself. They are living water that flows on drylands on earth. Everyone enjoys their company. They give Love and no expectation to return. They are kind and intelligent – stay alert to destroy the scheme of the enemies. Do you want to be like Jesus on earth?

Jesus said: ” Remain in me as I remain in you.” [John 15:4 ]

Being in Peace with:

If you are in Jesus – then you are the source of peace. You are the agent of peace; everyone wants to know what is the secret of your heart. They watch you secretly and learn from you- the way you speak attracts people and gives the audience wisdom and peace. You are in the centre of God’s will; it seems you are in the right place with the right people at the right time. You are content with your soul. You don’t look for answers; you are the answer! Because Jesus himself is in you. Peace beyond human understanding is in and with you. The only things that come and go into your heart are Light, Love, and Peace. So, you are at peace with everyone everywhere and yourself! 

“Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts.” [Colossians 3:15]

Being in Love with:

Love is not the four letters anymore. It is Love in the act. It is not a private love, but it is public – for everyone. It is for the family, friends, neighbour and nation and any race and tribe. Love does not know the colour! The only thing Love knows – it is softening and changing the hearts! If you are in Love with God – indeed in the right way through Jesus and peace is in you. Love keeps things in peace and changes destiny for the better. Love hold marriages stronger and turn a troubled teen into a loving child for the parents; Love does not know the borders. There is no limitation. 

” Love must be sincere.” [ Romans 12: 9 ]

What is your solution ? What quality can you offer to our broken world?

Jonah Story,Nineveh, What God said to Jonah?

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.

Day 13 – To God be the glory forever

We all thought 2021 would turn a better year than 2020. We hoped, and we wished the things get better and better! But, we saw another wave of sickness hit us all; our cities, countries and the planet didn’t rest yet and still eating people. Either human error or natural disaster, the world stuck in the marsh. It is our responsibility. If any one of us turns to what is right and just, this would be far better than a place. When God created Eden’s garden, it intended to be perfect. It was our responsibility to look after what he has given us. 

” Who has ever given God anything?” Roman 11:35

God made all things for our enjoyment alongside living with Him. Our wisdom is limited – we still have no idea of the planet we are living on – yes, we think we know! As a new generation, we need to realise that to carry the goodness of God to the next. Another great thing we need to know is :

” God owes nothing to anyone.” Job 41:11

Act a way that pleases Him – In an honourable way. If you have been taken away with the busyness of life – instead of blaming God – find a spot to acknowledge who he is. As some saying,” I enjoy life as much as I can, and in the last years of my life, I remember Him.” God wants you to join him in the journey – or in other words, we need to join God in the journey of life. If you in hardship, Praise him and let God take your burden. 

God still hears – even we see no sign of absolutely nothing!

When God put his sleeves off – He created everything out of NOTHING- your nothing is the beginning of a great story.

” Yes, God’s riches are very great! His wisdom and knowledge have no end!” Romans 11:33

Let keep our victory flag up – We have a God whose wisdom and knowledge endless. To God be the glory. Amen.

Comment Amen- if you believe it.

Day 12 – You Are Awesome

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

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

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

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

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

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

Remember: You Are Awesome

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

Stay blessed; peace and love with you.

Day 11 – Call to the Lord, Heart Prayer

” I called to the Lord, and he heard me. He heard my cries.” Psalms 40 : 1

Oh Lord Almighty,

I need you, 

I love you, and I lift my eyes toward heaven to ask your forgiveness.

How great you are- 

You wipe all my wickedness in me and create a pure heart in me, Lord

I return to you 

I turn my way and follow you 

I seek you 

I praise you with my everything; please keep my feet from slipping 

Put a new song in my mouth to honour you Lord, Oh God

I, Oh Jesus, Put my trust in you

Lord my God

You have done many great things – you are unlimited 

I am; healed because of your kindness – your greatness I praise Lord

I could talk on and on about them- your loving kindness are too many to count 

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

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

I need you – I repent 

My God, I am happy to know you- whatever you want, your will

You brought good news to my heart – you forgave me

Lord, do not hide your mercy- my heart rejoice in you again

Troubles have surrounded me – but your love cuddled me completely, 

Hallelujah 

Hallelujah

Hallelujah

Day 6 / 14 – God is our Protection

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?

Great Memorise Bible Verse

Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.
Hebrews 12:2 KJV

NIV version translated as FIXING our eyes on Jesus..

We must never stop looking to Jesus. If we accept Him as our saviour and Lord. We need to believe He is the beginning and the end.

Fix your eyes on Jesus is the best experience you can have in the midst of difficulties of this life.

Read the scripture above again with a slow step and let think what fixing your eyes on Jesus means?

Fixing our eyes on Jesus means :

Peace comes. Miracles happens. And worries gone.

Focus on Jesus

In the beginning ..

In the beginning everything was perfect and flawless. A full garden of beauty and life without death and sin. There has been no fear, doubt. Today , yesterday and tomorrow all were in glorious NOW.

“In the beginning was the Word..”

In the beginning was the Love. And the Love was with God.

He was Love. And Love was with God. The same unbelievable beauty and glory , an unimaginable light in the garden became flesh and made his way to rescue us. Everything made by Love. The heart of God, which we call Him , Jesus. In this Love, was not even a smallest and tiniest darkness. God gave his Love to us in a way we can know His. Within this Love; was life , and this life came and lived among us. And continues to shine every corner of ” after beginning “.

When this Love came in ! We didn’t know it , we were confused and demented , living in a world of confusion and lost. We didn’t know Love is the way ! We own things , we subbtoaged them , and destroy the image of God on earth. We tried everything to be away of Him, But we did not know this Love is dwelled within us. What was needed? A Believe.

If I tell you this Love worn flesh and was with us, you wouldn’t believe it! God gave part of His, that we can be part of Him. A Love ; full of grace and truth. We’ve been created by this Love. We’ve been loved by this Love , all right in the beginning which everything was perfect and right.

My friend , what me and you need today is this Love. Not Love of the world , that we can see God through this Love. That we can be Love here in this broken world. A believe that’s all we need. Believe to this Love and see the world around you will change, the world within you ,will change. This Love, we need for our nation, for our family, for our friends and people around us. We can show them this Love with us. We can show them Jesus. Let’s be that, Let’s walk in that, and whole wall of fear and doubt and confusion will fall down and we can see better , all in this Love.

In the beginning was the Love, and the Love was with God, and the Love was God. Love was with God in the beginning.

Much much Love

Dariush Youkhaneh

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

oh Father..oh Father

Oh Father , Can you see my wounds from this world you made>?
Is this not enough to carry whole heavy burden of this world in me? yes True, you said ” give all your burdens to me “.
Please flame it up with your fire of passion. I am not here to prove who is right and who is wrong! I am here to have faith in you, simply live a life of love.

oh Father, Can you make a new being again and again in me and others?
It seems the world you made , hurting so bad! I am here to submit my soul to you. I know you are hearing me. I know you are believing in me , like a child learning how to walk , I am learning how to love.
Oh Father, Why is it hard to love one another? How can we see the unseen things in other without judging them or offending them. You are the one that i can only trust in the storms.20200606_171514

Oh Father, Can you make me humble? Humbler then before. remove the repeated old in me and let a new blood of you being flooded in my veins. When people see me the they see your son, washed inwardly and pured with heavenly coal.
Oh Father , You call me your favorite son , is it true you got one of the best spot for me in heaven. Is it true you are going to show me your heavens.If not, open my tired eyes of heart.

Oh Father, oh Father…

I have hope, because you have always, a door open for me. Am I young to not knowing you enough. Does my old sins stopping you to love me more? Never. Does my repeating human mistakes stopping me to love you less? may it be Never.

oh Father , my sweet sweet Father.
Change me to be the one you want me to be. Somehow you want me , you do not need me.
That makes me special and chosen.
That makes me safe and secure.
That makes me love and new.

I am holding to this oh Father.

Much love

God’s Love; Freezes me

I love to give a hug to myself. The moment i realise i am in deep love of God. The moment when He already given me cuddle with His beautiful presence everywhere i go.Right last Saturday , I went for a hike with 2 other friends ( for sure social distancing in the place :)) . I was privileged to be there , I am blessed to see God’s wonders in the nature. As the nature is one of my motivation in life. I went there , To get another big hug from God. I am a dreamer. River , Jungle and all landscape around are my favorite, I can’t ignore them easy! I grew up close to this environment.

¬†I remember once , I was lost in the Jungle when i was about 13-14 years old. I was in the heart of Jungle – like God had me in his deepest presence. As my human face wanted to fear – God’s love held me fast. The way found me!

Let me back to my last big hug of God in the Hike. Here is one of awe moment :


You are beautiful , You are so beautiful then anything I can imagine.
I am cuddling you ! How awesome to be near to you!

Trees-
Rivers-
Water falls-
Mountains-
Flowers-

All bow down to your beauty ! and gives me a glimpse of who you are!
The day is yours, and yours also the night;
you established the sun and moon.( Psalms 74 : 16 )
Oh, Your Love freezes me into my bones. How good you are. This kind of love encourages me most, lift me up in you.

Before the mountains were born or you brought forth the whole world, from everlasting to everlasting you are God. ( Psalms 90 : 2 )

Who am I , that put question your beauty here! I am a dreamer! I am yours, I am an infinite lover of you even i stumble, I would still love you.

Somebody wake me up!

Can I follow you more God?

Much Love

****

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.

****

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 !

Confidence

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

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

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

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

Firmly Planted like PT

Hey , eventually Autumn is here in Sydney. The fires and storms came all upon. Virus hitting hard here but getting nothing.

I promise to trust the Lord in this season, no matter what would happen next. I am learning to be in His arms in the wave of uncertainty. I am confident in His Love. The heavenly angels are ready to serve me, protect me.

My ” me” is a combination of Jesus ‘ love and me. Autumn is here. It does not show it all , May it will. No wind , no smell of dry trees. The flower tree in front of our house brought spring to our life, its colour is pink and pink. It is the lady of the road , no one looked after it but only God.

In the storm when it was trembling no one comfort it but it stood strong till the end. I took a photo of it to show you. I don’t know it’s name , but I ve put a name for it ; pinky tree(PT).

Am I not beautiful? My name is PT

PT knows how to survive in the storm. It is its speciality to stand still and make others a smile and a beautoful aroma. PT smiles to every person , child, young , adult , old.. PT looks up and see a clear blue sky and thanking it’s creator for such a day. It sleeps at night in peace even in cold nights.

“And he will be like a tree firmly planted [and fed] by streams of water, Which yields its fruit in its season; Its leaf does not wither; And in whatever he does, he prospers [and comes to maturity].
Psalms 1:3 AMP”

I am certain of this whoever firmly planted , will prosper. Having Faith in the storm is the most difficult task we could ever face , but if like PT we stand still we should see beautiful flower. The fruit of our waiting would be great. Greater than we thought or assumed! God knows our needs, each one of them.

Can you be firmly planted by streams of water ? Yes you can , yes we can.

Let’s practice this together, Let’s Love each other as the Childeren of God.

You are always Loved!

I know that this was your Hidden plan

What is God hidden plan for me ?

His hidden plan is that

He clothed me with skin and flesh in mystery way

and wove me together with bones and tendons.

He gave me life and faithful love,

And his care has guarded my life.

Job 10:8-13

So , lets come to Him with confidence that His Hidden plan is for each one of us. I love this , so true. His Hidden plan is for me even i am sick, sad or faded ! His abundant life is for me. That was for me . And it is always within me.

Broken but Beautiful

Have you ever felt broken? I felt it and i know and i understand it at least a little bit ūüôā . There is no shame being broken – you can find life in it exactly the way even you don’t expect it. This new heavy experience gives you a new prospective. I promise there is a bunch of good -positive things in it. Today , we are witness the beauty in the brokeness . Some of my fellow bloggers friends experienced this transformation and they came out with a victory and beauty.

-Psalms 37 : 3

What do you need to pass on in your life? Do you know the most high priest is able to mend your brokenness ?

His Mercy and Kindness can overtake and covers our wounds. There is a beauty in your brokenness. There is an untold story of grace and love. You can stand again, stand tall to all your shame and accusations.

When you pull up roots in order to fulfill a divine destiny, there is not a sense of pain or loss. Rather, there is a great expectation for things to come.
– Reinhard Bonnke

What do I need to pull up in order to fulfill for God’s destiny. I got an expectation for the things to come. I got a love to follow. I got to know who am I in him ?

Let me hear joy and gladness; let the bones that you have broken rejoice.
Psalms 51:8 ESV

Can you show to your enemy you are beautiful enough to not be afraid of your brokenness ?

Your are beautiful.

You are.

Rain Fire War

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

Stand with me. Hold my hands into your heart.

AND…

Let’s look to the bright future.

Make a New Song

Back to months ago, I’ve just written a post with the title ‘ My song of Praise ‘¬† with a new song in the content :

You raise among nations

Come and fill us with your love

Walking in Your path. praising your Name

I am the one for You. Touch my heart again

Every success of mine

is Yours, I remember Your goodness 

I am here to testify it, opening my heart to Yours 

Can you hear it?

The song of praise

I truly believe every person has a song in their hearts , the moment when they enter to His kingdom. I kind of oftenly praise God with my own song of heart, And I hope you do have it. Bible says we have mind of Christ. We are children of the most High. There are millions of Angles in heaven praising God with their own heart songs. We are one step higher than Angles , although we are on the earth but our position in God’s heart is special and unique.

20190921_160628

When you sing a song for your heavenly Dad, something will shift in your heart. The restoration will appears. The power of Almighty God will overflows in you. Have you ever sing a song to God? I mean , not repeating other people worship songs. I mean a song truly came from the depth of your heart to worship Him and to know Him more. This new song gives you hope and lift up your expectations above. It will put back your ugly past and It will shine an unbelievable future. I just sing a new song in my heart for Him. In the pain or non-pain situations. In the night or during the day.  On the way or when I run , I am in the rain or in the sun.

The most touchable moment is when you sing in your painful times. Yes, It is beautiful in God’s eyes. It might be so ugly but God honours it and take your heart song as a worship moment. God’s heart is toward us even may we do not know it.

Can you praise God for His love inside us? Can you just a moment put away all your worries away and sing a praise song to God?

If you can comment me what is your heart song for God?

I want to worship God in my heart , I want to worship God in my mind , I want to worship God loudly.

Feels God

When I wrote my first poem , I was about 16 years old. I’ve never knew that how far will go. A teenage boy with a world facing Him. God was good to me. Looked after me. The more important thing was I just was 13 years old filld with the Holy Spirit, speaking in toungs. Only 13 years old. It seems 13 is a holy number for me , as for majority people may Not. I was born on 13 August. Who knows may the day i was filled with the Spirit, It was 13 !!! Anyway. Praising God for His presence in my life.

I wasn’t looking for God , but He looked for me first. Near , Far , he was there.

Deep calls to deep in the roar of your waterfalls; all your waves and breakers have swept over me.
Psalm 42:7 NIV

All the blessings, power and Love of God covers us all. When the waves of life is heavy , still He is there and covers us. When nothing is bright , His Light is shining in every corner of the earth.

From my childhood till now , God covered me , loved and looked after me. God is real , alive , ready to show his self in our earthly life.

Let’s have Hope together that God come again in our hearts and do a new thing. Let’s see His wonders. Let’s see how wonderful is his loving arms.

Let us be brave again.

One step closer to Him.

Deeps calls to deep.

Our every day life

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

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

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

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

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

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

Our everyday life is a blessing to be thankful for. 

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

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

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

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

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

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

Tell us in a comment what blesses you today?

Into God.

[The life I am livin in.]

Forever secure in Him

I don’t need to hide myself from people. I do not need acceptance of those whome they are unsecure and do not know where they came from. I know , He knows me. I know Before I was born He chosen me be here today and the life I live, I live from Him. He searches me and remove any iniquity in me.

He knows all about me.

When I am resting , He knows.

When I am working , He knows.

When I am upset , He knows.

When I am happy, He knows.

 

He knows everything..

He made everything

He is the God of everything. He made everything. Good and bad all he knows. The life I am living in it is to discover those, I am praising Him for his awesomeness. The life I have; is a gift from Him , The chocolate I can taste is a gift from him because I have the ability to recognise the good and bad.

Listen to this what bible says about me :

Psalms 139 : 13

” You are the one who put me together inside my mother’s body ” .

I am made in wonderful way in God’s image. I am the one whom God died for me that I can be with Him. If He created me with so much respect and love look after me , How come I am not going to praise and love Him more?

His love is not human like love. His love is divine godly -god’s love. With his own eyes He stare at me in the time of trial and struggle and He teared.

Your endless love never fails and I am so much in love with you.

All in All , He is Truth

Your thoughts are far beyond my understanding, much more than I could ever imagine. When I am sleep you are awake and protecting me. Your heart is so much bigger than anything. You are dressed with so much truth. Take away my wickedness and give me an upright heart, Lord. I am up for it with bended knees , Praying to you Father. Look deep into my heart, God.

Holy Spirit , You are who translate my heart known words to the Father. Oh Holy Spirit tell to Father How thirst is my soul. With all my heart I praise you, Lord. Your Kindness and love never fails.

Father , This is the earth you made , look at it:

 earth-1617121_1920

I , We  , Our Family, Our friends , Our City , Our country need you more Father. Jesus it is your turn. You have made us what we are. Please Father , Do not give up on us now!
