Nature has a story to tell, a new fresh start, don’t delay getting into the nature

I barely could juggle my foot when I walked on a long iron-like bridge in the middle of a jungle back home. My brother used to walk on it quickly; even he had a drink or two. My older cousin always looked after him when he couldn’t keep himself straight for a moment. We used to go out for a nature day call; every family gathered and celebrated and have a meal in the middle of nature and being together; I loved it, because there was such power when we gathered as family.
I have always loved nature, don’t make me wrong, everyone loves nature; I am very connected to it and understand the fresh smell of wild strawberries. Maybe spending time in nature in my hometown was why my love grew in being there. I learned the power of the family and how it is essential to be bound together. Nature taught me well.
Back to our reality, As I walked through nature in Australia, I remembered how faithful is God. I came a long way, I came from an anonymous past to a known-now present with a new identity which something makes me: me, who God loves. I took the below photos with a view of a new fresh start. It will inspire you and it warmed my heart :

Have a plan to go in nature, walk and enjoy the fresh air, and hear the sound of it. What will you learn? Stillness, kindness.

Day 8 – The Country of Moab

In the Bible, the Book of Ruth is one of those books that you can not miss its’ story. This fascinating book is like an elimination game. The country of Moab is the start of the story. Three men, three women, are kicking off the beginning of the book. There was a brutal famine in the land of Judah, which is part of today’s Israel country. A couple moved to the hill country of Moab and stayed there. 

I don’t know about you, But personally, How hard it would be. I know moving to another territory, or even a country, is a life-changing decision. The husband’s name was Elimelech, and His wife name was Naomi. They just got married and happily moved from a city named Bethlehem to Moab. Life was good for them, and everything was smiling at them- and they decided to have two children’s name Mahlon means ” sickness”, and Kilion means ” destruction.” And, suddenly, Elimelech died. It seems, before born of children, their father died, as we can see from the meaning of their children names.

Naomi was devastated; her beloved husband left her alone in a foreign country- but only for the love of her two sons- She stayed alive to feed them to be with them and to love them. So, She did what she supposed to do as a mum and wife. Her sons grew up and found a job in the Moab. They got married, both of them, to Orpah and Ruth. And, Suddenly, their husbands died. The loving sons of Naomi left them again; her husband’s wound still was there, and then two other huge damages added to her suffering. 

The dream of living happily in a new country was just a dream. Naomi wanted to see her grandchildren; Life was brutal to her and her family. The “sickness” and ” destruction” came and gone.

” While Naomi was in the country of Moab, she heard that the Lord had helped his people.” Ruth 1 : 6

She did not give up; she stayed strong in the eyes of the Lord. However, life did not show her a good sign of love and laughter. If you are in the country of Moab, Do not worry- the story will not end there. Can you hear the Lord helping his people? Can you? 

” So Naomi decided to leave the hill country of Moab and go back home. Her daughters-in-law also chose to go with her ” Ruth 1 : 6b

I am saying there is a time to leave the country of Moab. Your suffering won’t stay forever. Your wounds will heal someday, do not stay – have a move; God will look after the rest. The home is not too far! Stay strong. You are going back home- where you belong. The end story is better.

” They left the place where they had been living and started walking back to the land of Judah.” Ruth 1: 7

God is with you; even you are Naomi today.

Friend, Did this post bless you? Your warm comment encourages my heart. I am so glad you are here.

I will be with You

God is always with you.

He said, ” as I was with Moses, I will be with You “.

👉When God is with you there are three areas to remind yourselves

🙌And God is not limited to a location.

It means wherever we are located here on earth; He is there, He is omnipotent. So, do not worry about your location. God got you cover on this for sure. He knew the place you have been born. Even better, he knew you before you opened your little eyes to this world. God does not need to steal your identity. Because He is your identity. You have made in His image. The location is an artificial word to know where we are and where we go; the world is not our permanent home.

🙌God is not limited in time.

Not only that, He is God of all times. He is not isolated in time or limited in a time zone. The time is for us because we are human. We need time to discipline the place we live in. He created the time too. To make the world and everything in it a better place to live for us. But he is not limited to it. He is with you at all times. You are in the right time slot. Don’t worry; God is with you, don’t say I am a lost generation or come at the wrong time on earth, not at all. You are in the right place, with the right people and at the right time. So, be glad and enjoy your moments in this realm. Till you see, yourself in His heavenly arms.

🙌God is not shorthanded

He will never be. His mighty hands are not short to help you. He can pull you out, less than a blink of an eye. He got the golden key; He can open any door for you. The Holy Spirit abides in you. He didn’t come to leave; He came to remain. Keep believing and trust that the Cross of Jesus has saved you. God is not powerless; He is the source of power that will never be ended.

We may forget Him, but He will never forsake us.

Can you remind yourselves of the tangible presence of God in your life?

🗣👥Friends, if my posts are touching your heart, would you do a favour? Could you share it with your people? Let’s make our hearts closer together.

Prayer before sleep

Night 6 / 7

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me bring love.
Where there is offence, let me bring pardon.
Where there is discord, let me bring union.
Where there is error, let me bring truth.
Where there is doubt, let me bring faith.
Where there is despair, let me bring hope.
Where there is darkness, let me bring your light.
Where there is sadness, let me bring joy.
O Master, let me not seek as much
to be consoled as to console,
to be understood as to understand,
to be loved as to love,
for it is in giving that one receives,
it is in self-forgetting that one finds,
it is in pardoning that one is pardoned,
it is in dying that one is raised to eternal life.

Sleep well in Jesus Name

Great, Memorise Bible Verse

No one is holy like the Lord ! There is no one besides you; there is no Rock like our God.
1 Samuel 2:2 NLT

This was a prayer of a broken woman which we read in book of Samuel. She declares :

No one is Holy like the Lord.

No one besides Him.

No Rock like our God.

She lifted up her prayers to the Lord with a loud voice. Friend , treasure this in your soul and bring it to the God who answers.

None like our God.

Beautiful garden flowers

Flowers appear on the earth; the season of singing has come, the cooing of doves is heard in our land.
Song of Songs 2 : 12

One aspect of flower that brings singing . When you see flower such , you like to sing and love. Love that comes from nature above. No one can deny that flowers are not beautiful! They are beautiful in every season and in every occasion.

They change your mood and feeling. They give a special gift of peace and belonging. Go around a garden full of flower and see what grabs you first! Their look and smell. Their love and peace. They somehow sing for you and suddenly you gotta start singing too! They aren’t shy like human , they show their beauty- naked ! Go through above 6 photo , look at them slowly this time.. what’s come to your mind in first?

Beauty ? Peace ? Love ? Coloury ? Spring ? …

They are seating their all day long and giving us their look : l

You’ll be inspired , you’ll be motivated when you see them. You’ll be inspired with their colour . Aren’t they ?

Love

Funny story of mine! Burn the doughnut

The story starts from here , I’ve recorded 50km in total run last month.

Happy , joyful and I looked forward for this month to do even more ! If you just divide 50 by the number of days in April , it approximately will land on 1.5 km per day run.

I am motivated to do more, as long as my knees allows me.

Right before yesterday I’ve ran about 7km. I think I’ve lost weight! However my main goal is to stay healthy and fit.

Right today ! I’ve determined ! So glad can make it after working from home! Laced up ! Running shoes short and t-shirt zipped up.

As you can see the best sky view next to me ! Fascinating and magnificent.

I’ve ran for 7.30 km in 47 mins ! It is one of the record I’ve made it! I’ve had a phone call from myvbrother! Need help some!

Then , I have been encountered with so delicious doughnuts ! Not only one, but several.

Then , all that run means GONE .:) I FELT sorry for my body , after a hard run now back to scale again 😁 who had sort of feeling? ! You know what do I mean?

This is so close to our everyday life! Funny ! We train ourselves as hard as we can then with one flick( one doughnut) , takes us back to the first step!! Again , we need to burn all faties of life out.

This is where apostle Paul says “You were running well. Who hindered you from obeying the truth? ” (Galatians 5:7)

And then , comforting mine by saying I’ll burn this out! 😁😀

Much Love

God is the Champion of our Story

God is the champion of my story.

He was.

He is.

He will be forever.

*******

He has written our stories already. We meant to know this champion more closely. He has given us this permission through Jesus Christ. Sadly, the world turned its face away from this champion of our story and do not know Him. It does not want to know Him!

God was the champion story of Moses as He sang a song. Exodus chapter 15 :

“I will sing to the Lord,
for he is highly exalted.
Both horse and driver
he has hurled into the sea.

“The Lord is my strength and my defense;
he has become my salvation.
He is my God, and I will praise him,
my father’s God, and I will exalt him.
The Lord is a warrior;
the Lord is his name…


“The Lord reigns
for ever and ever.”

God was the champion story of Mary mother of Jesus as He sang a song. Luke 1: 46-50
“My soul glorifies the Lord
and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior,
for he has been mindful
of the humble state of his servant.
From now on all generations will call me blessed,
for the Mighty One has done great things for me—
holy is his name…

God was the champion story of David as He Sang thousands song. Some of them are in book of Psalms

God is the champion of your story , your miracle , your healing.

Even in our pain and struggle God still is same , the champion of our broken life.

God will be the champion of our story , regardless of our doubts. Regardless of our current judgement , regardless of how good or bad our situation be.

Much Love

God’s land / Part 2 / A fiction story

Read the part 1 here

***

I closed my eyes and opened it again. I wanted to make sure I am not in the dream. I opened my eyes and everything was same as it was. I have already had the wonderful taste of kindness ice cream and it was the most delicious ice cream I’ve ever tasted before. I looked around and I saw a few people around were walking and enjoy the atmosphere – every thing was normal but “ wonderful normal “. There was sense of peace in the street that you can feel it.

I wanted to check those flowers. Still part of me were there! As I was preparing my camera to take a few photos – I saw the most beautiful butterfly I could’ve ever seen! A beauty with two beautiful small eyes with an ocean blue wings with a soft red line on it. My camera couldn’t explain of this beauty! I took it. Under my breathe I thanked God.

 “ I wished my town was like this “  I said.

There were a life lesson well right near a coffee shop. I sat there to have a drink – “ What are you doing here?” a mid-age lady said. “ I am here to take a few good photos for my blog” I said. “ Only those with a pursued heart are here. Are you pursuing a wish?” she said. “ I love taking photos, this is what I like “ I said. “ All of us , pursuing something in life. Something we really want. There are those un-accessible desires. There is a place in heart no one knows what is it stored in , even ourselves. When the time comes you will know.” She added.  “ This is wisdom “ I thought. “ I am going to the white flower field “ I said. “ The mountain flower is about 2 km away from here! “ She said in very kind words.

“ remember , you are already in the light zone “

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?

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.

 

Here

Now and forever.
