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

Singing . Running. Resting

The days are slower than before. God is closer than before. A solitude place is our home. Thank God,  But we have best technology these days. We can listen to the music right away. We can read the electronics books without hesitation on our smart devices ( as much as i love paper book).

Singing 

The best thing i could ever do in the quarantine time, Sing a worship song in the morning , Do a quick run in the afternoon and rest for the evening.  I was singing ” Is He Worthy? by Chris Tomlin and I offer my life by Don Moen “. Let’s listen together those.

And I Offer my life by Don Moen ( i really love this song –  too much 😍)

What are you singing today?

Are you going to worship God today?

Running 

To be honest my main hobby was not running ( may it won’t be after virus released ). My main sport is football  and it will be and it is in my DNA 😁 indeed. If you put me between dating and footbaling which one you choose , i’ll go to football . I know i know. don’t judge me – it is not that extreme. It is one of my passion. So… RUNNING. I forgot! I am talking about running. I am taking one year my running habit serious. I mean at least 2-3 times a week. Interestingly, I found it fun. Especially after finishing the run; The sweating part!!! I know but when you stopped the run , you feel so much fresh- I like that freshness part.

I managed to run 7.6 run today. Can you believe it? + An extra 2km walking distance. So good. So sweaaaat !

IMG_20200419_182032_186

If you haven’t run before , maybe this is the time for you now! start with joggling. I encourage you do it and comment me how was your run.

What are you going to do today?

Resting 

After a long day , I’ve got to rest and relax ! I’ve done my singing , I’ve done my run, now time to read a book and write some words and take a small meal  ! As God after 6 days work rested ! I’ve rested! You feel some contentment. A joy of success mission : ). Now i am going beautifully sleep after God given rest for today.

How are you going to rest?

Rest in God’s promises.

 

 

Much Love

20200405_001152.jpg

****

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.

Saturday Devotion 11 April 2020 / The Saturday of Silence

” Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?” ( Matt 27 : 46 )

That was the last words of Jesus on the Cross.

There was darkness over all the land. It was a different time of the year. A time that whole humanity were waiting for to happen. Father knew that time. But it was a time of silence for Him. Saturday of Silence was so heavier than before.

20200405_001152.jpg

Jesus’s words echoes into heaven. I am reading the Bible and these words are echoing into my heart. But this echo, is echo of resurrection and victory over the sin. Jesus brought this to this new generation. Our 21 century , our 22 century – all centuries need Jesus and his victory.

That darkness was not  the end of line – But the empty tomb shown lightness to all of us. Brought hope to our hopeless life. Brought life to our lifeless bodies. Brought light to our darkness nights. The Saturday of Silence.

Thank you Jesus for your life, Thank you that you died on the cross for me. Thank you for your endless forgiveness and love. I am so glad that the waiting will be over on Sunday morning / the day of your resurrection. The next day of Silence will bring new life. The old will be gone and new will come.

Friday Devotion 10 April 2020 / At the Cross

20200405_001152.jpg

Jesus has been Crucified on the cross. This is a day Jesus died on the cross for me and you and for the all humanity. His passion , His mission , His life saved us today for an eternal life with him. At the cross , we see a victory , A good Jesus who never fails . Let us read from Mother Teresa as she called it ” Prayer of the stations of the Cross”

” Jesus lives His Passion today in the suffering, in the hungry, in the handicapped- in that child who eats a piece of bread crumb, because when that piece of bread is finished, there will be no more, and hunger will come again. There is a station of the cross. Let us be there , Lord, with that child.

Jesus lives His passion today in the thousands who die not only for a piece of bread, but for a little bit of love, of recognition. That is a station of the cross. Let us be there, Lord, with those who are dying for love.

Jesus lives His passion today in the fall of the young people who, as jesus did, fall again and again. Let us be there Lord.

Jesus lives His passion today in the homeless people in the parks , the alcoholics and the drug-addicted. Let us not be on of those who look and do not see. Instead , Lord, let us be there at that station of the cross.

  • At Prayer with Mother Teresa , Eileen Egan

 

Meditate the Cross of Jesus, His passion , His love , His life and let us be there at that station of the cross.

Let’s focus on His love toward us. He died for us that we can live with him forever. Even if this flesh of ours perish as the result of sin , our life with him will be never taken away from us. He provided a City for us, City of God. City of Glory , to the city of the living God.

So , See how much God loves us, rejoice in Him my soul. Oh my soul , He is God , the King of all. Today , I celebrate for his presence – yes I celebrate it even in presence of the pain and suffering. I look up , Sky is blue and Sun is shining now and the birds are singing and the dancers are dancing for the love of God.

Acres of Diamonds by Jentezen Franklin book review / Chapter 1

Acres of Diamonds by Jentezen Franklin book review / Chapter 1

I’ve read a couple of his writings till now. I’ve listened to his sermons for a while. I am following his social network page. Although he is involved much in politics people these days, He prays for Donald Trump and his administrative people. That may be a real cause for some Christians to dis-follow him. I’ve listened to his sermons in person. He is genuine what he says and how he lives , although mistakes for all of us are unavoidable. He is human like us , He makes mistake , he confesses it . He preaches a word for sinners not for those they do not feel need Jesus. Let’s be Honest all of has jealousy embedded in us.  May be you are first time you are hearing about Jentezen Franklin.  If you are , do not worry He is a pastor of a church called Free Chapel. Him and his family are blessed to serve the Lord in the corner of USA.

He wrote a new book called Acres of Diamonds which will be published on 11 Feb 2020.

Jentzen Franlink

This is the description of the book :

“ Are you in a season of life where every search for direction, encouragement, or fulfillment seems to come up empty? You thought God had you in a place to thrive and grow, but you are ready to call it quits. There has to be something better.

You don’t need a new garden; you just need to learn how to dig! In Acres of Diamonds, pastor and New York Times bestselling author Jentezen Franklin helps you discover the unfathomable riches Jesus Christ has for you. Rather than chase after a better life, you can celebrate the untold spiritual provision to be found even in the midst of spiritual deprivation. Readers will learn to cherish where God has placed them as they uncover the hidden potential within their families, jobs, ministries, and communities . . . right where they are. “

 

This book has inspired by his sermon back December 2018 , which you can listen it from here , Actually the main theme of this book would be based on this sermon:

https://www.listennotes.com/podcasts/jentezen-franklin/acres-of-diamonds-xX1LtrYp3nc/

Note this for the sermon : Sometimes we fail to see the treasure in our own lives. Our eyes become blind to how blessed we actually are. When that happens, discontent replaces gratitude. We may find ourselves thinking that what we need to make us happy is “out there” somewhere when we actually are surrounded by God’s priceless blessings—our very own “acres of diamonds.”

 

He starts his first chapter with a worm up words which will light up your heart. Jentzen  offered his introduction and first chapter free of download. Although his message is amazing and great inspiration. But , His main message is not from Bible , it is based on russell Conwell story in his book. Jentzen has linked his message to the Bible.  Perhaps , you do not need to go anywhere to look for diamond ( hmm or rightly Acres of Diamonds) , you can find it where you are in your business , in your family .. The first chapter starts with “ Why Not Now? “

123

You can download his first chapter of Acres of Diamonds here :

https://mega.nz/#!zZF1FI5I!6Lcb4Zd0WyHSflajsWYNMke3bCoGBURzLFnQDR3UytE

 

As we can see his introduction starts with Russel Conwell story in 1869.

234

 

“ When you stop undervaluing where God has placed you, you will start to see the hidden potential of where you are”

In his first chapter He talks about God’s timing and how that applied to his life. How he missed the opportunity of buying a TV station which later on sold for $50 million dollars.  As he quotes “ A present opportunity played with problems is better than awesome opportunity has passed.” He speaks about that focusing too much on our own plans and timing we might miss “ the Power of Now” (there is a book called The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle) He continues in first chapter about releasing your Faith Now. He does not say okay Now or Never , but he tried to tell his reader Now is better than your past, Now is your future !   “ You can not do anything about your past , but you can rewrite the rest of your life.”

And he finishes the chapter one by saying :

5454

You can buy Acres of Diamonds on 11 Feb 2020 , It is ready to pre-order now.

Transforming Love book review by Stormie Omartian

Love is the reason.

Indeed . Love is the reason that I am writing to you my dear friend. No one told me to do this. No one forces me to write and spend time here to inspire and encourage you. The only reason I am here because of the LOVE of God. His love melted me away and it brought me to a place of peace and strengthen.

I had never read Stormie’s book. This was my first time , Her style of writing is different with other Christian inspirational book. Truly , She experienced the love of loving God.

As she says in her website :
“My goal in life is to help others find the same freedom, healing, restoration, fulfillment, and purpose that I have found. I want them to know the wonderful life-transforming power of God’s love and all that He has for them, so they can become all He created them to be.”

In Transforming Love book you will be encouraged greatly. You learn how to love God more by knowing God’s love is for you. In her 268 book page you’ll be seeing loads of scriptures. The content of book , however is heavy and powerful. In the middle of book , I’ve paused and said to my self ” this book is thoughtful and for each sentence you need to pause and think about it “. I am not sure how is other Stomrie’s book are. I have hope and I know Stomrie’s know there is power in the words. This book is not easy reading however with a bit patient you will enjoy the result of your readying. There are heaps of powerful sentences in the book.

719uuB5k-iL

The last chapters of book has been excluded of those heavy content and it looks Stormie’s speaking you a bit more relax after she told you about God’s transforming love. It was a good idea adding a prayer page and list of the verses at the end of each chapter. I’ve really enjoyed to read them. Yes , there are a lot of repetitive verses in a different scenarios.

Obviously , This book is non-fiction Christian biblical base book. In each chapter you will see at least 15 bible scriptures. You feel it throughout the book Stormie truly has been touched by the Holy Spirit and She has experienced His love. She’s been hugged by his beauty. Warmly , she encountered His transforming love. She is trying to let her readers know that ‘ you can have this love too that your life can be changed forever ‘.

” But when I received the Lord , I felt His love in the Church, in the pastor’s office with my friend where I received Him, and in the believers around me. I believed God was the God of love, but I didn’t fully believe he really loved me. I sensed His love from others, but I thought of it as more an overflow from those who actually were, in fact, loved.” ( Transforming Love – page 100 )

“God Will Calm the Storms in You and in Your Life.” -Stomrie Omartian

I highly recommend this book for you , if you are walking in your faith and need to have His transforming love more in your life. I am recommending to you if you are very new to the faith. Take a step and see how God is working in people’s life by His love. One of them is Stormie Omartian. The thing is here , He already loved us. And still He loves us.

God’s beauty in us

It is just a bridge. This connection need to be made. Or in a worse scenario need to be repaired. But we can’t use our talent to build it. The only thing me and you need to this bridge appears in our life is Faith and Believe. Not by our own hard work.But, All hard work has been done on the Cross that we can freely walk on this bridge and have peace with ourselves and our creator. Allowing Holy Spirit leads us , soften our hearts and create a beautiful shape of Heaven. Can you see his beauty?

He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end. ( Ecclesiastes 3 : 11 )

Think about a moment. Why do you need to be You? In the world of Chaos you can order it by being you. Isn’t Faithful and trustworthy rare these days? But you be the One. Isn’t Life harsh and Painful? but you be the One who does not leaning back but falling forward and crash enemys work. You are the one who can sing with the Ocean. You are the one who hear the song of nature and keep dreaming till sunset. You are the one who choose to be You..

Allowing ourselves to Trust Him even we don’t understand will make us a better human. We’re here to experience Life. When God breathe His Life into dead body of Adam. It is been poured out God’s Life to this dead bones. The Life we have now is so precious because it’s God’s breathe in it. Use it till Full. Good or Bad , Worse or Nice , all will turning good for us and it will work for His Glory.

After a long week, I am glad to write to you dear ones. I pray thay Holy Spirit touch your Life. That you will know the truth. That you can make a life decision according to His Will.

1 July 2019 , recording the beauty Of God to the people. Still there are a lot beauty unimaginable around. Still there are milions od people Love each other , Love thier enemies. Still , are people who don’t care about materials, whom deeply rooted to God.

Let not doubt take the beauty of Jeshs out of you. People change , things change , circumstances change, but God will never change. Trust in Him. In His beauty.

Hope you enjoyed today’s post. Please share it to your friends and family.

If I only be in Your Presence

You make known to me the path of life;
    you will fill me with joy in your presence,
    with eternal pleasures at your right hand.

There is no such  a beautiful place rather than be in the presence of God. There is no place you can find rather than be in his loving arm. As I am surrendering all to You God ! I am praying to see the way of Life , Open the way ! I have none in me , that can known this path but in you I know where I am standing , I know where I am going. Passing the wave of the emotions and feelings where I can see your reality. The Person of God. How beautiful is this ? You are not Hidden forever in my heart! You are known for all humanity and one day all we see with our eyes! rather physical or spiritual. You’ll be there for me. I’ll be lost without You. Breathe in me your Life again! From Cross to Glory.

I do not want temporarily happiness of this world offers me. I want you fill me with your Joy where your presence can change me, and shape me like you.

My soul thirsts for you.

I am not living for my selfish desire anymore but Yours!

Psalms of David 16 : 11

God still loves you

It doesn’t matter!.. what is significant ? it is your love towards your creator. All these materials around us, tangible and intangible , feelings and seeing , they all will pass away. What really stands forever ,is love. You can see much more better with closed eyes! When you truly connected to the Love of God. To his richness presence and lay down on his green pastures. To grab the passion of heaven in our carnal hearts .

I need to seek his face more. To be his light and I need to enter to his glory with a humble heart and being like a kid.

God , doesn’t need Hero’s. He needs humble hearts. He is the master of fixing crashed spirit for his glory. I wondered, what Mother Teresa said about herself , Always humble and reticent, she continued to repeat with profound conviction  ,” I am nothing “. A woman who wholeheartedly obeyed God’s love and committed entire of her life to do his mission on earth saying ” I am nothing “. She brought smile and love to many.  I wonder what holds you back, I wonder what excuse you have about the love of God.

leaves-4176219_1920

The Spirit of truth , is you counsellor. He knows what is the best decision in your life. All of us , me and you , need,  is a complete surrender.

” I knew you , before you form in your mother’s womb “. This is God is saying to us. This is Him , Who created and designed all things seen and unseen. Don’t you think that He still loves you? don’t disappear. Be a warrior, you’re born for such a moment. To fall down and rise like a lion. To hold your shield and to be brave like David. Yes , let them say I am weak , because this is , where , my strength comes from! When I am weak than I am strong , let this be your slogan. Let the enemy knows you haven’t finished yet. Let your soul knows you are belongs to Him. Make it louder than any ocean , to the south and to the west , to the north and to the east and to the every corner of your being that I am the child of God. Not my will but his will , His love is not conditional –

I take delight in the Lord, I wait patiently for him.

Change happens when we renew our minds. When we turn from our ways by choosing his way as our main road of destiny.

I wait for the Lord

May A new month of Autumn is here already. This is a month of wait. This is in my heart that, the Lord said wait. Wait my child and see how my hands work in your life.

 

I wait for the Lord, my whole being waits,
    and in his word I put my hope.
 I wait for the Lord
    more than watchmen wait for the morning,
    more than watchmen wait for the morning.[ Psalms 130 :5-6 ]

blur-1867402_1920

With everything within me waits , it will wait for His promises. He is not the God of unjust. He is Good. He is just and my eyes look at this truth.  Softly , I am dancing in His presence. I am watching to see His goodness in this month. I humble myself  to his greatness. I am healed with His breath as I walk toward to His beauty.

This Autumn , I wait for the Lord. I wait to see his miracles more. I wait to see the Love of Jesus.

There is nothing can be better than this. Love of Jesus. I am going to sing Psalms 130 : 5 , 6.

 

My dear readers , Can you wait for the Lord to act. you might in the middle of the very important decision. But , turn to God, wait for the Lord , put your hope in His promises. This would be your best month as you obey Him in all your ways. I am sure there is a great future ahead of you. Trust Him and wait for the Lord.

 

Peace

Keep Going..

It is a beautiful Monday. Summer gently fading away his hot face from us and we are anticipating to go into autumn. The trees are making ready to have a pleasure dance for us. Just a bit funny to see the yellow leaves are falling down and the days are falling shorter than before.

A window open to smell a fresh air of sea. A baby crying right next door and a dad cutting the grass momently. I am just wondering how awesome to be here. Love make this ready.

buildings-322188_1920

A community of love with respect living next to each other. Look how nice to see to be this. But , reality says another things. we are living in a world of war and peace, sickness and health- death and life.

But , you have joy be satisfy who you are this is the way you have made.

Change your mind , when all others seems closed their mind to the beauty. You see good things on others and inspire them. You make the world better around you. Truly I say the revival starts within you. A heart of gratitude very much change your mood everyday.

Have hope to unseen above , this is the only light get you to other side.

“Let us go forward in peace, our eyes upon heaven, the only one goal of our labors.”
-St. Therese of Lisieux

Tomorrow is Tuesday. A day the Lord has made. Rejoice in it. Let us go forward with this confidence. Every steps , every day is a new opportunity to love yours and others.

Let us be thankful.

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.

spring-bird-2295431_1920

“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

Be a Life Changer!

Being a Single man is not easy as I thought to be these days. As everyone keep asking you the same question. Perhaps a few years a go(maybe 2 years) I had a friend church asked me” Dariush you are handsome, walking with the Lord a good man, how come you are still single? ” hmm. I said” I don’t know”, deep down in me doesn’t ask this question anyway! The right person will come one day. I am going to do my task: Be a life changer.

I am going to continue to shine. Despite of difficulty of life and the obstacles in front. Not only be a life changer for other also for myself first. When I can change me, everything would be different. I am gratefully thanking for this truth in Christ. Because He is my life changer. I think you will be okay with it. You don’t need to pretend it, but live with honesty and integrity. If you want to a life changer you need to do some practices. Simply as it is.

sdr

I am going to tell you what is my source of strength. Bible. Prayer. Going to church. Keep in touch with good friends. Family. and Many more.

You are an Hero already!

If you are single , enjoy your time. Have Faith the right person will come soon. Let go of things not deserve to be with  you. Laughter more. Explorer the faith and the world around you. There is loads of things you can accomplish – not necessarily need with opposite sex to be with you then you can finish it. It is okay to be sick some days- go to cave and come back to reality. We all need retreat anyway. Let us take a look at when Jesus healed that man with 38 years of sickness in his body. 38 years he was looking for someone to push him in the water and always someone else in front of him. But God , the source of all power that day meet him with one simple and powerful question ? ” Do you want to be healed ? ”

Are you serious? What type of question Jesus asked? of course I want to be healed – Of course I want to be free of this miserable life which I have never had experience to walk. Jesus is a life changer. The master of changing people’s life is right there next to him. There must be a confess in verbal. there must be said that ” yes Lord , I want to be healed “. There , the majority of us don’t answer that. Or we answer with very weak and low and doubt. God wants to know with all your doubt , you are still keep shouting ” YES , LORD , I WANT TO BE HEALD “. We learn here the very first step of to be ” a life changer ” is to confess. Verbalise your need of God. Tell him you need Him. Ask him to answer you questions . It is okay , if you are asking same question. God loves your persuasive heart.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.

Psalm 23

The Lord is my shepherd;
I shall not want.
He makes me to lie down in green pastures;
He leads me beside the still waters.
He restores my soul;
He leads me in the paths of righteousness
For His name’s sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil;
For You are with me;
Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;
You anoint my head with oil;
My cup runs over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
All the days of my life;
And I will dwell in the house of the Lord
Forever.

Galatians 2:20

I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. 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.

Galatians 5:22-23

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law.

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!

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)

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 ?
