∞ Life!

It seems the limitation of internet access affect my blogging here. I wanted to write to you a few days ago but I couldn’t as I do not have internet at home at all. Yeah , Such a shame ! living in the heart of city but no access to net. Anyways but I see it as an advantage to keep up my soul fresh by reading bible and others books. One of the book I am reading ( almost finished the reading of it ) called When to Jump by Mike Lewis.

I have been crossed by one of the fascination story of Barbara Harris whom became a bishop. The first black woman to be in this position.

She said in her 3 pages letter ” If you believe in what you want to jump to , then I encourage you to make that leap of faith and not to be timid. Make that leap, and see what the end may be. That being said , first try and make a plan. Think about a way you can maintain your lifestyle in case the jump is not successful. When I first considered ordination as deacon, I had to think through how I would support my self. When I became a priest , I could not maintain myself on a priest’s salary. I had to have other ideas. I had to have a plan. ”

Such an inspiring book. There are a lot of short story of people who changed their career and how they became successful. I definitely recommend you to read.

**********

Okay. How are we? I hope you had a chance to read my latest short book. If not please do a fav to yourself and be encouraged today and go to this page to have a copy of it.

The words are highlighted these days for me, is LIFE. But not a temporary life , An Eternal Life.

My-home-is-in-Heaven.

EL is the most vision of us. It was the vital words for Apostle Paul. Paul and other disciples knew that ( further in their journey they realised more) the gospel we are preaching be accomplished on the earth only , that would not be forever gospel. If our God is unseen God , We believe and hold on unseen things we also have to believe eternal life. A beautiful hope that will never and ever perish. You know! We see things and act accordingly. But in spiritual realm we do not see the things and can not act fast and respond it. Some people out there do not believe to anything on the existence of the things. Still with all great philosophy topics they could not answer the simple and important question of life.

“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.”

Having a heart to heart relationship with Jesus shift our view to an eternal prospective life.

 

I am waiting for that day, that everything be revealed to us as mirror. We see the true but we can not recognise it. We do know the right things but we do wrong instead.

Everything is not flesh. Our small mind can not comprehend the big thing of spirit. I had a couple of conversation with a friend many years ago, He even did not believe that we have spirit.

He-who-lays-up-treasures-in-heaven-looks-forward-to-eternity2

We are Spirit. Because with this Spirit we can worship the only One. “I believe… the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting.” I believe eternal life commences after the second coming of Jesus and the resurrection of the dead. I believe there is a place for punishment. I believe there is a heavenly place for those have a heart to heart relationship with Jesus.

N.T. Wright argues that “God’s plan is not to abandon this world… Rather, he intends to remake it. And when he does, he will raise all people to new bodily life to live in it. That is the promise of the Christian gospel”

 

Pray :

Father , I pray that you give a new prospective to see the things the way you see. Open our eyes and heart to see and understand they way you are. We are waiting for your coming back Jesus. We are waiting for you Jesus. Let us hold to the joy of eternal life till we see you face to face.

This is my first letter in public about this topic. Don’t take it personal. Digest it easy.

Yes, There is a time you wished someone would be along side with you. But singleness is a blessing. If God plan is for me to be alone on the earth right now- So it is what it is. I am talking from Christian prospective. I do not know what  would be singleness without Christ. Perhaps , May I would not be single if I was not Christian. Because there is something in Jesus keep you warm and safe. You feel it when you walk with Him everyday. And Apostle Paul sense that presence that is why He said in his letter ” Sometimes I wish everyone were single like me—a simpler life in many ways! 

A simpler life in many ways. That is true . indeed true. But it is not easy. Single life has own challenge and obstacle in front. But in many ways is simpler than a married life. I am not here to encourage us ” Oh stay single forever, Nah , I am here to encourage us that if we are single and desire to have someone ( opposite gender ) it is better to wait for God’s timing “. Temptation is so many in a world of sexual disorder ! am I trusting God. Each valentine’s day is a remembering God’s love either we would be single or married. It is great to love someone. But it is greater to love someone loved us first.

valentines-heart

Bible sayStay where you were when God  called your name  ” . Be Proud to where you are and to who you are. And Also to who you becoming. A pure heart have a smile in any situation. Our spiritual life is so important than our body life. It is Spirit of God , who will make us alive in heavenly realm. There is so much pressure around you , Yes I know. There is much things going on around you , Yes I know. Be still and shake off all dust of this world and pray continuously as Jesus did. I met a friend today on the way to library He told me that I found someone and I am dating today (Valentin’s day) , He Said ” Dariush I am looking for someone to get married , not girlfriend “. I said ” That’s great mate “. Indeed , that’s awesome you found someone go for it , but a single rose and go for a date.

Friends , Stay where you were called to be. God is there. Hold the high ground with Him at your side. 1 Corinthians 7: 24.

Your life is complete with or without marriage. Our life is hidden in Christ , It is a gift to be YOU.

Vaughan Roberts in His article on the gospel coalition talks about four things God says to singles that : 1- It is a gift 2- it is an advantage 3- it is hard 4- It is not permanent.

All of them is right and true. We got Jesus on our side, the best of best and the king of kings. Let your gentleness and your kindness be known to people around you , not a making up love but a genuine love which company’s with Heavenly Father. Sure, soon or later The God of everything , who died on the Cross for us will give us all the answer.

C.S Lewis in his “the four loves ” illustrates beautifully about affection , friendship , Eros and Charity( Agape) loves. But the Agape or unconditional love of God is greatest of all.  

Father God , In Jesus name  we came to you. You are the one we can trust. You  are our first Love. We hold on to you very closely. We allow and open our hearts to your endless love. We thank you for eternal life. We thank you for everything you have done and you are going to do in our life. Here Father I pray for singles and married people, Pray for any human being that all are in the centre of your attention. I pray that they experience your unconditional(Agape) love. Where , There would be no lack of affliction   and attention. May your word will be done to us.Amen

Review of “Love like you have never been hurt!”

This review is only for first chapter! of ” LOVE LIKE YOU HAVE NEVER BEEN HURT “

Normally I do not mention or put any review from other books. But I need to confess that this book is so different of others. It is something powerful- honesty in it that will attract you.

Jentezen Franklin always have been my inspirational pastor. He speaks from his heart. Recently , He just finished his book called ” Love like you have never been hurt “.

jen

His book will release on 6 March 2018. He released first chapter as free. And you can read it here.

As I have finished reading the first chapter, this book is so different from other books he has written. He has so much more life and grace experience. I am going to talk deep about it here further. He put his story in it beautifully with an honest word. It is like He is setting in front of you and pouring out his heart and hurt. Yes , He has been hurt severely. Which I assume it is not separated from all of us. Vulnerability is not a sign of weakness but that shows your strong and brave to move forward.

Genre:

Introduction starts nicely with an old proverb. The story of how a dog be loyal when you treat the dog well. I am not sure what he was pointing exactly but it seems it is about life and us.  He gives you small bite of his story  , Cherise ; His wife  is with him long the end of chapter one. I am sure we are going to see her name all over that book. Now in the main story, He is telling us his real challenges. “Life gets real! ” He mentioned. 

Mostly , He talks about His struggle with his marriage – I mean 100 percent of chapter 1 is about how they had really sever life test. Their little young teenage girl hanged out with wrong crowed. One day Him and Chersie drove down – 3 hours about to her university and took her out of that circle. 

It seems the name of book taken from a verbal communication from other people. As he mentioned ” I heard someone told me love like you have never been hurt “. He Nicely pushes us to whatever struggle we us , we need to TRUST. 

Lisa Bever Commented on this book and She said ” A profound message on the power of unconditional love . A must-read ” 

The questions is here. Why Jentezen sharing his personal life struggle with us. Everyone of us in any degree have own challenges. He even shared ” His arguing ” side with his child. The most close answer it would be ” Love “. A father is a father when puts everything first for his child.

My recommendation :

This book is perfect for those family they have teenage kids at home. With this in mind also great for those they do not have any children.
