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.

This blog is the place of rest, come and have a read and rest

Well, When I opened up this blog several years ago, my intention was( and is) to inspire individuals. I wanted to write; when you read my post, you feel rest; you receive a breezing breath in the world of a political, social, rational and broken world. If you have been following me a long time enough, I hope my writings have been a blessing to you till now. New generation people need confirmation, need acceptance, love innovation, unique and marvelous things; I get that; I totally understand that how do you feel when you Facebook/Insta/ and other social networking platforms are down. But, they are not here to define who we are. I don’t need to remind us, but I urge you, my dear; We are made in God’s image. This world wants us to be furies, spiteful and in a rush for everything. Our call is to rest and grow in the Spirit. So, you are one of the brave ones.

This blog is the place of rest. Let it be.

Have a rest with me here. get your tea/coffee or if you love ice cream, get it and enjoy it.
Sweet spring is here in Australia. And, I am awe of these days as I see the lockdowns are melting away soon, I mean very soon. The smell of the flowers is in the air when we truly love each other and let forgiveness be our friend. Our streets are quiet as usual, and you can see the mask on the faces of people. Sometimes, I doubt if they can smell the spring or that it will somehow stop the season’s allergy. I smile, either under the mask or unmask. Because I know that is the unseen medicine of every heart. ehh- you say; good boy! whatever..!
God! Thank you to whoever reading this post now! They are truly my friend. Amen. That is my prayer for you, and I am so happy you are here. If you are new to my blog- don’t worry; we can be good friends. Just come and give me a couple of likes as the sign of reading and your presence as I pray for you. Not a worry at all, if you don’t like and comment, I still love you. I’m not here for likes and comments. But they are the bonus; of course, our rewards are stored in heaven. I wanted to be a speaker, thinking about it – but that won’t be my option. I may be a voice, hmmm-an an invisible voice that can be echoed across the nations one day. ooof- Why am I tiring with these non-sense words? I feel sleepy; the time is 11:25 pm- I guess it is getting late. Let me finish with this quote of life:
“Everything you can imagine is real.”
― Pablo Picasso

We don’t mean do the life alone, invite your friends here.

Love you guys

A Prayer for the World

A prayer for the world-to the King , Most High.

By all means, this is a prayer for your world. 

Father, you have created a perfect world. Lord, we messed up and gone on our ways. We did not listen to you. We did not follow you; we followed the philosophy of your people; instead of you, we let people take the free will from your land and bound us with the earthly things. I am here to pray for myself first, Lord, because I am your world; that is why you died on the cross.” God loved the world;” God loved me – a sinner that I can be free of all this chaos. Do you listen to the news, Father? Do you have a TV in heaven? Father, do you watch soccer? We use kindle to read the Bible these days; the people you created found a way to travel the space, to the moon. The gap between rich and poor getting wider and wider, the percentage of hunger’s people are as many as 811 million. Father, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. As you will rest in heaven, please have your peace among us, peace for the countries currently at war, peace for our nation, peace for our cities, peace for our streets. Lord, we did wrong, but you haven’t given upon us. You don’t want our praise; you don’t want our gifts and abilities; all you want is us. We turn to you, where our restless hearts can have joy, where our minds can sleep like a baby. Let people know how much you love them. Power? You got it all. Money? You got all the wealth. Wisdom? You are the source of it.

You are the Spirit; we are the flesh. We come and go, but you stay forever; we pray for the world and the world around us.

Teach us how to love you? Teach us to be just to people and do the right according to your will. We are here at the station of prayer. Let this be a bridge and reach to your ears. The global issue is on us- rescue us from our intelligence. We need your knowledge; our brain is limited – but your is – oh God, eternal and unlimited source of everything. We are in urgent need of you, it is the same urgent gathering of the upper room of your disciples that day. And your Church, evolving in the story, don’t let them make it like the world; it is better to be like YOU, Yahwah, my God my Lord. Thank you, Holy Spirit. Remember the women, the children, and the aged people, who will shelter the weak without you? Your protection is most needed. 

The world needs you. Be an umbrella of hope for many who put their trust in you.

Father, Let me do my part of help to my brother, my sister, an unknown and guest person, a broken who needs healing. Soften my heart for a reason of living for others. Let me plant kindness and forgiveness in my farm’s land. Where is my farm’s land? It is where I live. I know Father, you read this letter of my heart; if not, someone will hand you this, where I rejoice that time, because the King, Most High heard me. 

This prayer is not only my cry but my friends, my neighbour, my city and the nations. In your Son Jesus Name. Amen.

Inspirational walking, Rest in the shade of the trees

My today’s walk was indeed a charming and a quick good treat to my soul. When I saw the trees and greens around, the sense of love increased in me. I was impressed with the look of it as someone painted 🎨 for a specific time and hour. Look at the below photo gently, what do you see?

A gentle look makes peace into our hearts. This looks a paint, but it is not, it is a man walking with a camera and capturing the moment.

It gives you courage and it makes your eyes green. I love the way sub-branches are fallen into each other, a wonder of beauty. I have been energised again 🌻.

It is not done here, walk with me, let me show you around, I pray as I walk, and sometimes I don’t 😐 and I will be lost in the frame of beauty, the beauty of Spring. I guess, you know what I am talking about, it is like daydreaming. I just stopped for a moment and looked to the below :

I was daydreaming, the wind of spring took me to the top of the tree, I guess, that is me in the middle of the screen, looking right and left all greens.

When we walk through them, it will wash all our ugliness off in a second. No place for anything else, except ‘the style of nature ‘ peek. Innocently look will put us on the right path. The journey is long but that frame of love is there to inspire us. Dear, walk with me, let’s be saturated at the moment :

Dear Walk

Rest in the shade of this tree while water is brought to wash your feet.
Genesis 18:4 NLT

Tell me how did you spend your weekend?

Smile better than smiling face with smiling eyes emoji 😊Life is better when you smile

We are heading for the long weekend in Sydney. It is Labour day on Monday. Thanks for this day off; after a heavy rainfall yesterday, the sun is out and shining every corner today.

Have you tried having a smiling face with smiling eyes? That’ fun. try now😊

I mean, it is so much better if you smile; your laugh brings such joy to your own heart and the people around you. There is so much bitterness and opposites out there that wants to stop you from your beauty. The lie of the enemy shall not hinder you, shall not limit you. You are born to rejoice. Yeah, if you travel once to Sydney, you know what a beautiful city is. I love Spring and Summer, but don’t get me wrong, all seasons are lovely in their lense. I wish I had glasses to wear and keep this beauty on my eyes and heart forever, don’t you want to? 

You can smile; just give it a try. You don’t lose anything, but you gain.

You know, we have passed three months in lockdown. I was thinking about this, we are in lockdown, but the birds are free, we are in lockdown, but the season is changing, we are in lockdown, but the world evolving so much. But one thing has never changed, at least in my life, I don’t know about you, which is we need our Creator; we need Him in our physical life and our spiritual life. His un-ending love covers are every aspect of life. Why am I ended with God always? Because he is our fountain of life. As I am typing this for you on my laptop’s keyboard, I pray in my heart that you know God of all seasons, keep the smile of heaven on your lips regardless of your situation. I am sure where you are now, whichever season you are in, you can see the beauty with your own eyes. Life is better when you smile😊- better than smiling face with smiling eyes emoji. 

Write somewhere I have decided to smile from now. It doesn’t give me a good feeling only but confidence and assurance. 

Can you repeat this after me: I smile, I love, I pray, I arise, I go because, in all of this, God is with me.

Smile always.

Fill your stomach with Truth and eat the word of God

” Fill your stomach with this,” he said.

And when I ate it, it tasted as sweet as honey in my mouth. {Ezekiel 3 : 3]

How can we eat the word of God? No, I am not saying ‘break’ it; I am saying how to ‘ eat them’. The thought of eating the word of Truth dropped in my soul last night. Believe it or not, I was repeating Ezekiel 3 without knowing it – as a result, I searched the Bible to find the verse talks about eating the word. Here we go: 

The voice said to me, “Son of man, eat what I am giving you-eat this scroll! Then go and give its message to the people of Israel.” [Ezekiel 3:1]

We are filling our stomachs with a lot of things during our lifetime. One thing, God is asking us today to be filled with His Word and Truth. Eating the Truth means eating Jesus’s body and drinking His Blood. Let no men lie to you.

He broke the bread, gave it to the disciples, and said, “Take, eat; this is My body.” Jesus said. There is eternal life offered to us with eating Jesus and drinking his precious Blood. Let’s see how can we eat; we talked about it is crucial to have a fest of Truth. The below are some of the examples of filling our stomachs with Truth:

1- Walking with Jesus

2- Reading the Bible

3- Memorise and eat the verses daily 

3- Communion and fellowship with believers

4- Praying ( in times of need and not time of need/ all the time)

5- Talking with Jesus

6- Be with Jesus add Listen to the Holy Spirit

7- Give all our mind, heart and soul to Him 

Eating Jesus means being present actively with Him and intentionally thank him for his Truth within us. Of course, that comes with trusting that what we eat will heal us whole, and that is why drinking his Blood will wash our sinful Blood and make it pure as it goes through our veins. Our cells enjoy it, our mind appreciates it, our hearts are glad in it, and our soul is dancing with it. ” Son of man, eat what I am giving you- eat this scroll!!” Some thinking, this is a magic food, some others thinking is unreal. And they fill their stomachs with other junk stuff of this world. We had enough to be filled with the lies of enemies—enough travelling in the desert without water. We read and listen to the word of Truth now. We eat them and enjoy having everlasting life with Jesus. Carrying the Truth is our goal; this is our purpose. I mark today as a new generation’s army to fill my whole with the Truth of Christ, my saviour.

Do life, have Faith

I’ve run more this year, even more than last year; the coronavirus pushed me to be active more and get out of the house to have an exercise. It is not too bad, and I broke my whole time record of running for 190km a month. If all people know the value of physical activity – they all do some to improve their life. The Bible also talks about physical activity, but a ‘ Spiritual Sport’ would also benefit. There is no such comparison here- all are needed; both keep you fresh and revive and prepare you for the days ahead, whatever you may face. 

Okay, I love that everyone knows how much exercise they need to keep them a level up. Others can guide you through measuring things worldly, but ultimately, you decide how long you could go.

We can use the measure to improve our lives and make us better, don’t be limited to it.

We can address the things in this world, believe the unseen things(in Christ), set our faith in the right path, and see how things will change if we do life and have faith.

My running journey started very slow, and I found it enjoyable to run after or before work; there is no such paltry joy but a solid-valid one. As I mentioned, two things are crucial to us: our spiritual body and the second is our physical body. We need to balance both in us, appraise our status, and see which work more. Praise and practice work hand in hand to make us strong human beings. We know that our true identity is not from this world and not the things of it. Our ‘Spiritual Sport’ helps us be ready for the unusual incident in the world we live in, undersized or oversized, we are prepared to face them; with practice and patience, we know how to tackle them. Please remember that Christ came to give us a new life in Him; as we walk toward eternity, let’s do our best to keep it that way. 

Spring is beautiful in Australia. As I run more around, I see more beauty, I see more bees, I see more birds singing a happy song, and I see the whisper of the newborn flowers with colourful style. I wish I had a camera that could record all this beauty and show you in a quick few minutes, But I will instead be present and witness this.

For now, let me enjoy this spring season with running and writing. We are heading toward the warm season soon, and I feel it.

And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.[Philipians 4: 19], both your spiritual needs and physical needs.

Spiritual EXCITEMENT

Spiritual excitement is a heart of a believer. Every time we make a decision in our life, we go to him, asking for a sign, asking for help, asking for guidance. We go with excitement and joy that God of all universe have heard us; it is true; indeed, He hears and cares. My question for us would be this, are we pouring our hearts when we speak to him? When we worship and call upon the name of Jesus. Indeed, He answers our prayers.
Are we excited when we go to prayer? Are we excited when the church time comes, and we are ready to hear the word of God from his nominated speaker? I have listened to many sermons and preaching throughout my walk in faith. I confess I didn’t go with an exciting spirit, many of them. But, I did show up as a sign of – God, “I am still here – I am not 100% present, but I know you know well.”
Let your heart rejoice with hymns of heaven. There is no need to do something for God to be accepted; he loves you like how he created you. Good deeds are great, helping someone is awesome, bringing word of encouragement are perfect in place but are we thirsty for Jesus? Are we excited to be in his presence?

I’ll leave it to us to discover his beauty by prayer and songs. And give us a new spiritual excitement in him.

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—the 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 ]

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, This is day 5 of 14-day immersing in God’s word. If this post blessed you, leave a comment to warm my heart again. Would you care to share? May someone need to read; how much they are loved- as you are.

Day one – God hears you

In the book of first Samuel, we read a remarkable story of a broken woman named Hannah. Hannah was the wife of Elkanah. Elkanah had two wives , One with Children, another one without Children.

I don’t imagine how hard it would be for Hannah, hearing mocking words from another wife of Elkanah and telling him that she can’t carry your heirs, she is not your favourites one, I am, because I gave birth child for you. Hannah was tired of those words, but she didn’t stop praying and pleading with God for a son. Years after years, Hanna was going to the temple of the Lord, pouring out her heart to Him. Can you imagine? You pray and pray nothing happens? I suppose many of us been there and know how hard it would be not to hear from God. The Bible captured the last answered prayer of her for us :

And she made this vow: “O Lord of Heaven’s Armies, if you will look upon my sorrow and answer my prayer and give me a son, then I will give him back to you. He will be yours for his entire lifetime, and as a sign that he has been dedicated to the Lord, his hair will never be cut.”1 Samuel 1:11 NLT

Day one – God hears you [hh-high.com]

Those words were so powerful and known for Hannah. He was praying day and night. The point is here we ask God so many things but not to return to Him; we want to keep them eventually. But, if we reread Hannah’s prayer. She prayed, “I will give him back to you“. Are we willing to give back to God what’s belong to Him? By asking these questions, we reach the point that God hears our prayer. God indeed hears our prayer. Hannah gave his vow that she will dedicate her unseen-yet son to the Lord. You keep trusting and praying that seems for others meaningless. The priest of temple, Eli told Hanna ” throw away your wine”. Could you give them the reason for your belief? Tell them ” don’t think I am a wicked person, for I have been praying out of great anguish and sorrow.”

the Lord remembered her plea”

He will remember our plea in due time.

” in due time she gave birth to a son. She named him Samuel, for she said, “I asked the Lord for him.” 1 Samuel 1:16‭, ‬20 NLT

Ask the Lord for your needs; ask the Almighty one who can grant your request in no time. Your needs are not old in the eyes of Him, they might look like unanswered ones, but God answers them in due time one by one. God hears even we think He doesn’t.

Hannah said :

“I asked the Lord to give me this boy, and he has granted my request.”
1 Samuel 1:27 NLT

In other words, the Bible tells us, Hannah asked and received; you give it a try!He hears us.

Now, we received the promise, it is time to give Him back, Our praise and worship to Him:

Now I am giving him to the Lord, and he will belong to the Lord his whole life.” And they worshipped the Lord there.”1 Samuel 1:28 NLT

What do you need to ask God again? Keep asking, don’t give up. He hears you.

Friend, I hope Day one of 14-day immersing in God’s word blessed you. If this post blessed you, share it with someone today, leave a comment; I’ll be pleased with your word of encouragement. Be with me for 13 more days.

Take Courage

Unfortunately, the world going in the wrong way. As time goes pass by, we see this is a reality. I am not here to tell us how worse things are but to remind us how beautiful things can be. Indeed, things change, human change, their preferences changes, their style of life changes, group changes, everything around us are gradually changing. In all changes in and around us, I think God gave us a mission to be the agent of courage. An agent of courage must be patient as God himself is unchangeable.
Saint James said, “Take courage, for the coming of the Lord is near.” In this circle of change, God whispering, “Do not worry, take courage, I do NOT change “. Courage means to preserve and withstand danger, fear or difficulty, as Merriam Webster defined. If you are under threat, take courage; if you are in fear, take courage; if you are in the wave of difficulty, take courage. The medal of bravery sealed in your heart, not around your neck.

Real Courage


If you are in the middle of the desert of your life, please take courage – the darkness won’t stay forever. We all were there, some less- some more. Don’t let anyone look you down. They are not into your story, and they do not know- please forgive them and let the river of your heavenly Creator flow through you that they may know who you trust in your heart. Courage means saving yours from the battle of the enemy by trusting Jesus. Some thinking, courage means you need to save thousands of people. Or you have to keep a nation or country, although all other great things – are perfect. Real courage means to call upon the name of the Lord in the middle of difficulty. Of course, King David was brave to go to fight with Goliath. He was couraged to trust God – that the Lord of all armies will assist you on this. Sow courage in your heart and come to the table of the Lord. This heavenly food you need for your life, here and above.
“Be of good courage, and let us be courageous for our people, and for the cities of our God, and may the Lord do what seems good to him.”/2 Samuel 10:12

Can you be of good courage? Not only for yours also for the people, for the cities. The Lord is the source of all good courage.

Friend, I love to hear from you; I also need your encouragement; tell me if my writing is blessing you.

Jesus got these, Can You?

I have always dreamt of being the one God called me to be. But, you know we are human, we make mistakes and thank God we got the throne of God to go for, and we can confess at the feet of Jesus. I am asking God a new strength, a new powerful strength all over us, which in the time of weakness we can rise and stand firm. Sometimes we caught up in our daily routine, Work-Home-Church. God who created us knows everything about us. He knows the details of our lives. I am amazed, and our God does not stick in our daily routine. He sees us farther.
We call him day by day and week by week- He is ready to give us a fresh wind from heaven. Jesus was getting this fresh wind every day by going to Father’s presence and pray. I think we can do the same and even more. We can go to Father’s presence and ask Him for mercy.

Whatever reason people are fighting for is not worth the future God provided. There must be a reason God breathed into us and made us like Himself. The painter knew how is going to draw the paint. Jesus knew; that is why he said, ” Remain in me, and I remain in you.” our ultimate goal is to remain in Him, not remain in the world. The problem of humanity is this; they want to remain in this world forever instead of remain in God. And the answer to all our questions, all our doubts and unbelief will be found by remaining in Him. Whatever you wish, whatever you ask, whatever you want, whatever you look for, indeed will be given to you – if you remain in Him. Jesus got this. He remained in Father’s love and business. That is the area most of us are blind to it. Merely, we ignore it – because we scare of unseen things.
We can get started with an elementary baby step: loving ourselves and appreciate God for our being. If you can do this simple task, then you begin to grow, you’ll ask the question, I have loved myself, now how do I love others? How do I eat solid food now? , you can end your baby steps by loving others without expectations.
I think it is enough for now; I hope the above made sense to you. I summarised for us :
1- Remain in God
2- Love yours
3- Love Others
Jesus Got these, Can You?

10 Promises We need to gift to Ourselves

1- Promise to be Brave

God wants you to be brave. So take the first step of faith and let your fear disappear in a sudden time. You can be bold, and you can be substantial; who said you could not? Just hold it firm, the journey may be shaky a bit, but you can walk through it happier than before. The Bible says, ” You take courage.” It did not tell you to take fear; no, you made to be brave. 

2- Promise to do Right

You are not only trying to do right – but it is your human obligation to do right. So we do the right thing when we are at work, and we do right when we are with the family at home, we do right when we are everywhere. We called to do right, not to be right only. Being right is far away from doing right. So don’t worry about others – you do right, and the rest will be in place for you. 

3- Promise to follow Jesus, no matter what.

The innermost promise to yourself. No matter what you feel, No matter where you would be and no matter what season of life you are iP – We will follow Jesus. So, Keeping God first and most – is the most top priority of our life. So it would be for every Christ-follower; they don’t follow the world and its desire, but Jesus- He is the centre of everything we do and have. The world we live in may not understand this fully, but we have the Holy Spirit to lead us through all days. Can you keep the promise in your heart?

4- Promise not to Give up

Never give up; life is hard and harsh – and that is a reality. There are loads of encouragement videos and podcasts, and books out there to lift your spirit. Don’t give up on your dreams. One day all your beautiful dreams will come true- If they desired for a good and loving way – God will open the doors for you. It may seem like nothing happening, but you do push and try again. No pain, no gain. Don’t dare give up on your faith, Don’t dare give up on God. It is time to hear him directly – it is enough to hear from this and that person; Go to him and listen to what God says to you. Can you be a person of consistency? 

5- Promise not to cease Praying

Pray, Pray and Pray – Even no answer appears. But, prayer can unlock some fantastic doors in your life. So, keep the prayer first of things, not last. The God who created you love to hear from you. He is so humble to listen to our little praying. He answers all your prayer in cry and laughter. So, go to your room, Go to the park, go for a walk, on the way in your heart, wherever you are, pray and see how God opens the door for you? Can you promise to yourself say a few words each day to God?

6- Promise to be Active (physically and spiritually )

It is time to be involved; keeping yourself moving is excellent for your physical well-being and helps unwind your mind. Spiritually activities are praying, reading the Bible, going to church, fellowship with other believers. Train your physical and spiritual muscles by practising.

7- Promise to be thankful/grateful which what I have and what I don’t.

Let it be always in our lips and heart- ” I am thankful”, ” I am grateful”. You do not need to do or be someone or somewhere to give thanks; you can give thanks right now; it does not matter which family you grew or growing – God put you there for a reason, Thank him, be grateful for your situation in your life. I know you hear it a lot, but honestly, He has a good plan for you. Thank God.

8- Promise to keep Faith Hope and Love

All comes together now, most importantly, Love. So keep these three in harmony. Have faith, keep Hope and love more. Faith to who? God saved you, that God is for you and sent his Son, Jesus, to rescue you. So keep Hope; what? Keep Hope that a great future is ahead of you and behind, that Jesus will return, that you have eternity with Him. Love more to who?

Everyone: Love friend and enemy, Love all, Love God.

9- Promise to keep improving/learn/grow and upskill in all area of my life

Does any course out there to help me? Could you do it? Does any skill you need to learn? Please do it. Do something to improve – what didn’t you know last year but you can learn this year? Always push forward; I know we can do it to a greater degree. 

10- Promise to Love God with all my heart, soul and mind and love my neighbour as myself

Although Love came in the promise eight lists, Love God with all my heart, soul and mind keeps all other promises in balance. Do your best to return to God if any mistake happened. Do your best to love Him. Do your best to draw Him close to you. Not on the surface only – but with all your loving God. One of the most important promises you can gift to yourself and find out what pleases God and do it.

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?

David Praises the Lord

Then, in front of everyone, David sang praises to the Lord: I praise you forever, Lord! You are the God our ancestor Jacob worshiped. Your power is great, and your glory is seen everywhere in heaven and on earth. You are king of the entire world, and you rule with strength and power. You make people rich and powerful and famous. We thank you, our God, and praise you. But why should we be happy that we have given you these gifts? They belong to you, and we have only given back what is already yours. We are only foreigners living here on earth for a while, just as our ancestors were. And we will soon be gone, like a shadow that suddenly disappears.”
1 Chronicles 29:10‭-‬15 CEV

Kind David, time was up! He was ready to transfer his kingdom to his son, but right before that, he prayed for His Son, and he blessed him with his prayer. He reminded God was faithful till now, and He will be on his son reign, Solomon. He acknowledged that God is the King of the entire world.

He had started with a praise song, not demanding, not complaining, nothing else except exalting God. Read the above verse a second time, this time slowly and put yourself in the prayer. Can you thank God for all His faithfulness in your life? Can you transfer this blessing to your heirs? As Kind David said, ” we have only given back what already His”, Let us Give all of our praise and worship to the King of Kings. Let us praise Him as David did.

Restore to me the Joy of Your salvation

Oh God of all times, I am a sinner. Keep my eyes up and forward. I need your lovingkindness to forgive all my mistakes. I need your hands to lift me into your presence where I can rest. Your bountiful Spirit holds me safe and secure. I need you to restore me the joy of Your salvation, transfer me again from one to another, from old to new—a complete restoration of my soul, heart and mind. Would you allow me to build my life on your Word again? Would you lead me with cloud and fire?

Your merciful hands – all I need. The touch of heaven- all I want. Remember, your first love, remember, I am dust who will return to it. Your glorious face can turn my mortal body into a burst of sunshine. Rebuild my life over, merciful Adonai.

You did not leave me alone here! But I see you are fighting for me over and over again. There is no doubt, and there is no sin, there is no – nothing can separate me from Your love. I look up. 

Believers can walk through this world with Heads Held High, carrying the dignity of the family of God as lords and ladies of the kingdom of heaven.”Let the weak say,” I am strong”(Joel 3:10).” -Reinhard Bonnke

O Jesus, Son of God. 

Please do not take your Holy Spirit from me. Change my world with your presence, O Jesus, put a new song on my lips. Let me see your face- let me be a new person, a new river of blessing that my soul will praise you forever. I am a sinner. Wash me in your blood. Would you immerse me again? Then, I say – Thank you, Father.

Identity

If you live in an apartment in a busy town – and look down from the balcony of your unit, you see people are walking into each other and hurrying to do something.

I am interested to see what will happen in the next 50 years from now. Our life is changing dramatically. Artifactual intelligence (AI) and the Internet of Things(IoT) will be ordinary, and Electric cars are already hitting the markets. The machines are taking over human tasks. Those are exciting news for most of us. With all these new technologies, we are still struggling with our IDENTITY. 

If I give a blank page and tell you, please draw’ the identity’ for me; what will you draw? 

The oxford definition of Identity is “The fact of being who or what a person or thing is”

The Bible definition of Identity is “We are made in the image of God “, As I brought to you in my previous post. God breathed His life into us – then the simple meaning of who we are will articulate in who HE IS. So, Our core being is not defined by the things or affected outwardly. We may see it on the surface, but heaven’s connection shapes our inner status. That is why so many of the new younger generation are struggling to find themselves, and they look outside, look and love to be seen, desiring to have always new and shiny things. There is nothing shady to have a big dream. 

We see Identity as not something that recently comes up like a mushroom; we had this issue in Jesus’ time. There was a man called Matthew whose job was collecting tax for the government. He had access to the treasure and money; perhaps He knew the meaning of having a lot of money and sometimes unfairly collecting tax more than expected. In between, He heard Jesus came into his town, and it was the best time for him to look the life from a different angle. Matthew, A short guy, went above a tree with his expensive outfit to find his Identity. He did not care this time. Perhaps there is a Man in the town, can answer all his questions. Although Jesus, ‘the master of freeing people’, was there to bring his Identity back. Jesus’ presence was enough for Matthew to enlighten his heart. Matthew brought back Home. Then, he suddenly realised and asked this question of himself; ‘What I have been doing whole my life? Money!!! I give back four times more for those I unfairly treat them.’

Our Identity is not in the things. No, even, it is not in another person. Nothing wrong with having the stuff of life; the question comes with loving the things. Our Identity is in Galatians 5: 22

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.

Heaven is our Identity.

Lose your life to Jesus, and you’ll find your Identity. Lose your life to Him means to be in connection with Him. Means walk in his way, coming back to Him, even we may make a mistake – but coming back to him with a repentant heart. Where do we find our Identity? At Jesus’ feet!

Comment – what’s your definition of Identity.

‘Tough Times Don’t Last, Tough People Do’

‘Tough Times Don’t Last, Tough People Do’

It is Palm Sunday pluse my run event.
Mission accomplished! Managed 12km under 60mins .12km run in 58 mins and 30 seconds.

Spacial Thanks to those who made donations to hospitals.

It was a smooth run road , they have chosen nice spots as we had only one top hill to run. I am surprised to my performance,  however I could do better. I think running up hills consumes my energy more and drained my last 2 km abit as I was trying to catchup my breathing.
I like the medal, at the back of medal is written : ‘Tough time don’t  last , Tough people do ‘…

Today is the day of celebration of entering Jesus to Jerusalem.

Land like a butterfly
Sit like a butterfly
Enjoy like a butterfly

We read this story on book of Matthew :

“The disciples went and did as Jesus had instructed them. They brought the donkey and the colt and placed their cloaks on them for Jesus to sit on. A very large crowd spread their cloaks on the road, while others cut branches from the trees and spread them on the road. The crowds that went ahead of him and those that followed shouted, “Hosanna to the Son of David!” “Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!” “Hosanna in the highest heaven!” When Jesus entered Jerusalem, the whole city was stirred and asked, “Who is this?” The crowds answered, “This is Jesus, the prophet from Nazareth in Galilee.”
Matthew 21:6‭-‬11 NIV

Hosanna in the highest heaven.

I hope we be a people don’t turn from Him when circumstances change. The same people shouted for Joy , a few days later shouted to crucify him. I hope we continue be side of Hosanna, no matter what they said.

Hosanna ,will help us today , tomorrow and the future. He is Jesus. He is entering to your town. Would you cheer him up and continue so? Would you keep him tight in your arms and don’t let Him go ?

You are not alone ! You will never be. You are enough. You are in right place , the place need to be , the purpose of God is not far from you. Let’s keep this secret on our heart. The change is near!

Loving you,

Dariush Youkhaneh

Dear lovely friend , I’m blessed you are here. Would you care to share this blog ? Would you love to follow my blog ? I am praying for us to have a greater encounter with our creator every single day.

God won’t forget you

Precious friend , my dear loving reader. Just wanted to tell you , and may re-confirm it in your heart. That you are loved by Father , precious in every word. Even , no body knows your name or know who you are. But He knows. He does.

God won’t forget your repentance and your prayer and love toward others. People may forget your kind act or service. But God does not , and He remembers it-all , every details of. Of course, all your good act of love to yours and others.

Death of flesh is not the end of your spiritual life in Christ. It is a new blossom beginning of being in right place.

My friend, how much I love to tell this to you and myself : God won’t forget us , when we forget Him. He is still there. Even when the time of our departures arrive.

Sometimes, my blindness block all goodness of Him in Him. I’m praying for healing, that to know how can I love people more, forgetting all the human shyness by wearing heavenly culture.

Run , by trusting in him.

Stay , by hoping in him.

Go , by believing in him.

All for His Glory

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

Dariush Youkhaneh

If you know These Things..

..great blessings will be yours if you do them. ” This is the Word of Jesus to his disciples when he washed their feet.

Combining action with knowledge is a great prospective of a Christian life. It is not easy, put our words in an action. Christ washed his disciples feet to give us an example, how should we do it? He is teaching us the value of spiritual washing , if you haven’t read John 13 : 1 to 17 , I suggest go and read it.

In my saturday bible read and focus. Verse 17 of John 13 captured my attention. That, in a simple saying : life is happy if you love and serve others. The most important thing we need to know that we are happy inside, if our soul becomes Joy. Which is not on surface, but inside of us. Jesus is saying if you want to have this Joy , do what I taught you. ” washing others’ feet ”

As commentary says : ” cleansing of the soul from the pollution of sin ” how ? By doing these things Jesus said. By putting our knowledge in practice. As James brother of Jesus , gave us a better phrase: ” Faith without works is dead “

“Not what we say about our blessings, but how we use them, is the true measure of our thanksgiving.” – W.T Purkiser

Some THESE THINGS are :

Respect to each other.

Love each other.

Serve each other. ( read my book : Serving the loving God)

Forgive each other.

What are your ” These Things ” My friend ? Let me know in the comment.

Be blessed

Smile and have a laughter of heaven. You are here, loving others , loving people around you and loving you ! Your Soul belongs to Him. Your thirsty inner being will be filled with the beauty of heavens. You are a butterfly, flying over earth; let others see your beauty that they know heaven is a beautiful place to be ! It is real.

Yes , you are not alone! Joining millions of Angels , imagine that! Millions of butterflies, millions of incredible beauty! Loving , singing and rejoicing.

You keep believing!

A Divine Grace

Three things a person must do for to be a Jesus follower ( to better to say; to a true disciple of Christ) : ( Matt 16: 24)

1- Deny Himself / Herself

2- Take up the Cross

3- Follow Jesus

We are not called, love the world  but love the Lord. I know that, part of me do not want me to deny myself. Me , wants to follow me-desire ,  denying myself is not in my dictionary at all.

What does really mean deny myself ? John Piper says: ” There is zero profit in owning the entire world, since that cannot save your soul. The soul can’t be bought by all the wealth in the world.” Denying myself means accepting to put off the honor , wealth , and anything that is not from heaven assurance. It means I have not need to be anxious of tomorrow , if I have already denied myself means I got what it meant to trust Jesus depart of outcome. The perfect season is a season I trust Him more, even the wave of problems and trials comes I’ll be right to face it ! I ain’t to move , because this is not me any more but Jesus with me. Oh How great is this. Oh sweet is to know God is Faithful in all. When I forgive myself , a new window will open. If the world wants me , but that time I am ready to pay the cost , that time I am ready to deny myself and my desires. I got it. This is the key of restoration. Free myself of this world. Forgive me and others. No stronghold will keep me any more. I look up daily and say Thank you Jesus , I am yours as Brother Lawrence said : “I did not pray for any relief, but I prayed for strength to suffer with courage, humility, and love.”

The Threes above are not a recommendation from Christ to us , but , rather a commend to all His true disciples.

John Piper continues in His article called ‘ Deny yourself for more delight ‘ : ” Therefore, when Jesus said that the way to follow him was to take up our cross, he meant at least this: Be willing (without murmuring, or God-criticism, or cowardice) to be opposed, to be shamed, to suffer, and to die — all for your allegiance to him. Or, to go to the heart of the matter, to “take up your cross” meant to treasure Jesus more than we treasure human approval, honor, comfort, and life. Our suffering is not a tribute to Jesus unless we endure it because we cherish Jesus. Taking up our cross means Jesus has become more precious to us than approval, honor, comfort, and life.”

Billy Graham well said ” “Christ demands first place in everything. And you have to come to Christ realising you’ll have to pay a price.” Following Jesus comes with a cost , If others tells you otherwise , they are not honest with you. Yes , Following Jesus is the best decision of our life. You have a forever-friend . you can call him your brother , your husband , your groom , your best friend , your lover.

Oh Lord, you sustain my whole being , Let me feel and know that you are in control of my life. Forgive me if I don’t deny myself to take my cross and follow YOU. I am weary , I confess it! Let remind myself and put you first in all my action. I recharge my soul , mind and heart with your peaceful presence. Than , I can understand your DIVINE GRACE and walk in your light. Say Amen.

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

God is Love

I may fail to love others, But God’s love never fails. Because He is Love. His nature and characteristic is Love. My human nature never even close-like to His Love. His Love is a different kind , heavenly Love-like but touching earth Love. Once upon a time this Love came on earth like a flesh , lived among us to show us the Father’s unconditional love. I may not be even worthy of this Love , But the Blood of Father’s Love , Jesus , makes me whole again. Now , that Love is not only in Him , but in Me , and this Love lives ,whoever believes in Him. The Son of Lamb , The Son of God , The Alpha and Omega , The Way, The Truth and The Life.

His Love is sweeter than Life. His Love is like fruitful garden , full of all kind of fruits.

His Love is Light, opens the way of my dark paths. His love is a lighthouse for the lost ships on the seas. His Agape love never ends , never tires , never gives up , never leaves.

Can I know this Love ? Absolutely.

Can I be like this Love ? Definitely.

My dear friend as you are reading this post , I just want to tell you that Jesus Loves you, unconditionally, His love is for you too. Do you know that in His Love there is a power ? Power of freedom. Indeed you may heard this thousands of times from church’s and preachers, But you have never experienced His UNCONDITIONAL Love , Now is the time. It is very simple but powerful prayer from your heart with a child-like Faith: “God I want to know your Love , show me Jesus“. That is it .

God is Love.

A Prayer for the week ahead..and after

God , I am young and needy of you. If I fall please lift me up. And let me walk in your presence. Let your love be known to me and wipe all my darkness within me. Let it be a week of victory.

God , I am unwise and inexperience. If I make a decision please shape it and make it yours. Let your knowledge be a life-lesson to my heart. Let it be a week of greatness.

A prayer for the week ahead.. ! And after

God, I am empty without you. Fill me with your love. Let your kindness soften me. Let it be a week of life changing moments.

God , I am blind and short-sighted human. Heal my blindness and let me see the distance. Let your miracles come and be a week of miraclous.

God, I am only a human from dust. Let your divinity come that I will assure I am made like your image. Let your holiness come and be a week of holy.

God , I am only in one place at one time. But you are a space traveller. You are everywhere. Let me know that you know everything and you are everywhere, Let be week of Y-O-U.

God , I need you. Not only for this week ahead but for the week after, after after… and everyday of my life. Let it be yours and only yours.

Much Love
