Reading the books | Joy and Adventure

I am saying to myself one day when my library grew , I am going to open a huge bookshop. I was not a booky person at all. Of course i’ve read my schools books. But my issue was that hardly to pick up a book from bookshop and read it.  Newspaper was one of my favorite reading, specially the sport section. My habit was reading newspaper from the end. Choosing the subject of  football and then reaching to the front paper.

The God of my heart

Searching is the most difficult and painful task for all humans. Today’s people won’t want to be bothered. Something in us stuck to not to search and seek.

I want the easy way. I want my lessons in school be easy. I want my work be anti-stress and easy task given . I want to go with express train with no delay.

But , when I came to faith in Jesus , I encountered this in opposite way, an absolute obstacle for me. The God I am following call me to be patient and wait upon the answers. The God I am following now says you’ll be success if you trust in my way. I was passing half the valley of my life , my own direction with all miserable thoughts. But , oh , the God of my heart calls me and lighten my way in the right one. I thought I was going the right way , He shown me the true way.

This God call me to search, to seek , the deepest of His Will. Not choosing the wide open door that everyone going that way , rather the narrow one. That one; which everyone thinking is impossible. They knock every door to find a solution , how miserable! Pity! When God knocks thier door they won’t open, because they want easy task , easy healing.

He made me in His secret way. The God of my heart formed me in His hands.

If I don’t praise Him for how He formed me ; at least I need to lift him up for his works in my life. I am not seeking Him as I should , I repent. This repentance of mine would bring light into my life; my soul and my inner being now loves you more as I search you more.

You own my heart , God knows who we are. Let Him test it and pure my anxious heart.

This would be the best move, from easy comforting to searching and seeking.

Oh , the God of my heart.

A defined moment /1

After a few glorious rain and flood in Sydney. Monday 10 Feb the rain suddenly stopped. It feels we have been all into Noha’s ship and a dove has been sent for a dry land, we suddenly saw the sign of it and we all happily😀 landed now.

I finished Heaven is for real by Todd Burpo and my review is available on Goodreads. Now i am on my third book , reading Confessions by Saint Augustine, oh it is a heavy readying , it seems I am not that fan of classic books.

” O Lord , Our God, under the covering of your wings we set our hope. Protect us and bear us up. It is you who will carry us; you will bear us up from our infancy until old age. When you are our firm support, then it is firm indeed. But when our support rests in our own strength, it is infirmity. Or good is life with you for ever, and because we turned away from that, we became twisted. Let us know return to you that we may not be overturned. Our good is life with you and suffers no deficiency; for you yourself are the good. We have no fear that there is no home to which we may return because we fell from it. During our absence our house suffers no ruin; it is your eternity. ”  -Saint Augustine

When you read those lines you feel there is an honesty in the words , there is a sense of confession and turning to God. I enjoy reading book of confessions by Him , although it is a bit hard for me to be honest; but slowly i am getting into heart of Augustine. He is ruin because of his good friend passed away and because of that he moved to another city without telling his mother which was the closest person that time. Until now He is telling all the way he went and came back to God. I think , he did not have many friends. He was a clever man, looking for the right path of life, he found no eternity in maths and arts as he was in live with those things and so intelligent.  If you are asking me , i think he was memorised bible verses line by line and he has eaten them all. He sticked and injected them all into his life story.

20190615_132236 (2)

I remember my life, if God was not there for me, if he did not call me to do what i do now , I was a miserable worldly person with no defined purpose. When Jesus made himself real to me , I was not aware of that at all. I was daydreaming, But He; with his goodness grace rescued me and put on the rock. Before my first year school , I always wanted to see school’s door and this was my puzzled question from my mum: ” what does it look like?” ” I want to see school’s door” . When the time came in , when i arrived there; i said to myself :” this is the school’s door that everyone’s enter it?!! “. My curious mind did not know that ” this is it!” I guess i was naive whatever you wanna call it! But , Honestly; God was there. He went before me and prepared the whole school for my arrival. He was counting my tears on my cheeks , as He was looking into my eyes and saying ” Oh my little child, don’t cry “, I was speechless.  He sent his angels to protect me , I was naive but He was artful. I wanted to know more , More about life and people around me.  I was full excited about future and what the unknown holding for me. I wanted to climb the mountain to reach there as i was blown away with his stillness and as a child i was learning to be like Him.

I was looking for a better life. A better life ahead. In a small village next to caspian sea , I have not even discovered the town around me. I’ve been so happy where i was. enough joy within me but God had another plan and new direction for my life.

I’ll talk to you about this more..let’s take a cuppa tea and enjoy the reading moment.

How Happiness Happens / Max Lucado book review

happinessCVR_3Dstack1-1024x996

Max never disappoint you. He is right into point with a soft loving language. Easy read; powerful impact. I love it. This man is God’s lip on the earth. He lined up the 10 practical principles for making happiness happen (pg 10 ) :

1- Encourage one another ( 1 Thess. 5: 11)

2- Bear with one another ( Eph. 4 : 2)

3- Regards one another as more important (Phil. 2: 4)

4- Greet one another (Rom. 16:16)

5- Pray for one another(James 5 : 16)

6- Serve one another (Gal. 5:13)

7- Accept one another (Rom. 15:7)

8- Admonish one another (Col. 3:16)

9- Forgive one another (Eph. 4:32)

10- Love one another (1 John 3: 11)

Actually the whole book goes into these 10 principles. If you want to cuddle the happiness balloon, than here you go , you do well when you truly do the above. Although no one will be able to easily pass the exam but with a little bit practice and perseverance you can do it.

Max opens the doors of this 10 and gives a glimpse of  it in the chapters. But , eventually this is you and me make the ball kick!

The last pages of the book his wife Andrea Lucado prepared some questions for each chapter:

Of those 10 ” one another” above verses, which one do you believe you do best? how?

Which one do you most need to work on?

Max writes in chapter 1 which is truly true: 

” Happiness depends on what you hang in your closet, park in your garage,mount on your trophy wall, deposit in your bank account, experience in your bedroom , wear on your wedding finger, or serve at your dining table. Happiness happens when you lose the weight , get the date, find the mate, or discover your fate. It’s wide, this front door to happiness.

YET for all its promise it fails to deliver. “

Get the book and read it and it may change your view of the real happiness!

Do your Lap

The weather temperature in western Sydney reached to 47c today. I ve decided to go to swimming pool. As we encountered front reception of the pool. He told us inside pool is closed because of competition. No choice ! We got into outdoor pool.

I’ve done a few laps. Suddenly a pro swimmer complained to one of the life saver at the pool, there are too many people , complain behind complain ! “Why are they diving? Look at that , he is swimming at the line with a life jacket.”

I was a witness to her complain.

My ear was listening and giving the thought to my mind. Do your lap! A lot of obstacle are in front of you and we may have a bag of complains to God , why God this happened to me ? Why God this and that? Why me?

We need to do our laps , rest is with God. I got my lesson today? Swim and swim with no jealousy and comparison mind.

Look at the life of many men and women in Bible. Do your lap , let other whatever they want to do, do . Keep going ! There are people to criticise you , your private life going to be in public measure. Everything we do and see; are temporarily, this Lap of life is nothing compares to the swim of your future glory , the lap of glory is awaiting for us.

I got my lesson to obey and trust God in this Lap of life. Either in the face of evil or in the face of angels. I Do my lap In the persecution or in the happiness.

How you gonna do your lap? Whatever you decide let God be in it. He knows how you can be your best at it.

to YAH

To YAH

The below are written to my Yah. Please take it as yours. This is my heart’s cry with praise and adoration. Sometime the best prayer would be raising up a question to Yah. Would you allow Yah hear your cry?

Lord I am here to know you more. Thank you for your faithfulness. How can  I come to you with all this shame and I repent, Please lift me up again and calm this raging heart. Lord I am here to exalt you today with a worship heart. How can I live without you? You are better than any sweetness in the world. Check and refresh my soul with your mighty hands. Let your lead be my guide. Let your love be above anything in my life. Would you touch me Lord with your kindness? If my mistakes are millions; I know your forgiveness is countless toward me, I am coming back to you. Let my cries come to you like a speed of light! I need your presence, nothing less and nothing more. Take my brokenness and shape it to bring you glory. Thank you for loving me enough to send your Son, My Jesus, oh my Lord. Let me walk into your light every single day and night. Oh , My mighty Jesus teach me not to sin again, cleanse my inner heart! If I lie to myself, I lied to you . search me, empower me  heal me to be yours!

//Prepare me for your kingdom!

I remember when you spoke to me! Am I not your little child? Would you speak to me again? Would you lead me to your path ? If I’ve been lawless to your commands , this is my human fault , would you please fill me with your upright heart. I am your child. Take my worries and replace it with your grace , Take my life and give me your full beauty complete life. I am found in your way, teach me to be humble. I do listen to your whispers of love, if not; open my ears to hear it. I do want to see your glory, if not; open my eyes to see your wonders. Often , people are saying where is his God? I am not ashamed of it, because ; Oh my God , My Lord ; I know you are with me.  Sometime the things of the world keeps my attention off from you; oh Jesus ; you know I am from dust. When I slept; you are awake with you angels around me , protecting me. Your safety is mine , you secured me with your endless power. See , how people talk with pride, if I have been judgmental , I turn to you. Where are those lips to praise your Name, Yahuwah! I am right here to give you my all. My mind, my soul and my body. All is yours for your glory. I am a student, you are my teacher than teach me your wisdom, I am a passenger, you are my pilot than let me trust you in this. I am a patient, you are my doctor than heal my wounds.

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.

Look! No Price for !

W I S D O M

You cant find price for this anywhere on the earth. You cant buy it in any shop or sell it. This wisdom is beyond the pearls.

This wisdom is a gift from God.

It is not in deep earth and not with the sea. Truly wisdom is not in tradition old or new , not even in our 100 generations back.

Where is this wisdom than?

Where is it located ?

I tell you my friend ;

IT IS RIGHT with GOD and

It is right IN GOD.

It is in fear of the Lord.

Understanding , far away from evil doing.

But to man He said, ‘Behold, the reverential and worshipful fear of the Lord—that is wisdom; And to depart from evil is understanding.’ ”
Job 28 : 28 AMP

More than my daily food!

His word..

His Plan..

His Mind..

God is unchangeable!

The Words of his mouth are my daily food.

He will do what his planned for me.

He has many great things ahead in his mind for me.

He is our Father , God of all Powers.

Focus and contemplate on above words.

How good that is!

A timely word.

A delightful answer can sit right into heart.

A man has joy in giving an appropriate answer,

And how good and delightful is a word spoken at the right moment—

how good it is!
Proverbs 15:23 AMP

Joy comes to us when we give right answer in right time and in the right place.

It will definitely change the atmosphere for good. God gives us this ability that we know which answer we can give.

This is wisdom of God. How good that is like delicious food for our body.

I know that this was your Hidden plan

What is God hidden plan for me ?

His hidden plan is that

He clothed me with skin and flesh in mystery way

and wove me together with bones and tendons.

He gave me life and faithful love,

And his care has guarded my life.

Job 10:8-13

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

Pray for Australia

As i mentioned before and i had a post for this specific prayer. Australia desperately need your Prayer. I have no idea what Australian people thinking about this situation. Our animals , sources of oxygen , our land and and home are burning in fire all together.

But who cares. No judge ! People in City doing and having their own life , all they can see is smoke ! Good or bad. But we as a believer how can we perceive this event . How can i even react when millions of hectare are burning around me and all i can say oh how bad is this.

Australia desperately need Prayer! A Faith s Prayer . It may look the flame of fire reachs to 50 meters plus. But i believe and trust our sound and flame of prayer goes higher than that. God hears and cares our Prayer. Yes , our Prayer can change things around. I look to His wisdom. May some people turn to Him. May some others call upon the Name of the Lord. He created the heavens and the earth than I am sure he knows how to manage things around.

When the waves were raging ; Jesus were peacefully slept on disciples boat. Than He woke up and made peace the stormy sea. Lets US do the same, if our faith is small and weak thats okay , lets wake Jesus up in our boat by our Prayers. Cry out to the Lord oh may soul , seek His Name. We need revival in our land when young and old can see dreams and visions. We need brave and bold people who can proclaim the message of Christ.

I haven’t unwrap my christmas gift yet , because i know it is on its way. I pray that every hard heart converting be soft for his Presense, God is on His throne , majesty in Power , omnipotent in His Glory.

Pray for people of Australia whom represents every nation in this country.May not them forget how we have this free country. Oh my soul ,my Lord my King Ive just recently joined , change the heart of people in this abundant land. I am sure the physical rain will come , but we need your spiritual rain too. Isn’t your word source of Truth ? Let us not be ashamed of carrying your Name. Still people here brought thier Gods from their mother land , they worship fales Gods, their idols has eyes but can not see , has leg but can not walk. Would you forgive us if we turn to you? Youve shown your love to us once and many. They are confused by your Power. Stuck in their world and looking for one door open. We need your guidance Lord. Would you have mercy to us ?

God has not forgotton us !

Should this be my last post of 2019?

What i need to tell you; all my dear beloved followers and visitors. Thank you for a year of being all the way here by supporting , commenting and encouraging me to keep writing, even you may not noticed , your LIKE and support keep me inspired throughout the year 2019. Thank you it was a truly a year of God’s hands in our life. But God has not finished yet so do we. We keep inspire people. We keep loving them and no expect of return , we keep forgiving them and show them they belong to loving heavenly Father. 

What a year! Do you agree with me? I am sure you have like me many testimonies right into your packet. Do you want to keep having those old habits way in your heart or do you want to start this new year and decade with a fresh perspective about yours and others!

I have decided to have a complete surrender to Him – Put away all my bad habits and grab his goodness for 2020. I know saying it , is so easy! But let’s give it a try.

Let see first what God has done for this blog till now, look at the below stats :

1

This is your blog , your visiting , your loving , your caring , your viewing posts are blessed me and others so much , we have only  one goal , one mission to lift each other up.  That was/is the mission of this blog  to inspire and encourage individuals. Thank God for your presence , Thank God for his blessings. I am looking for more miracles in 2020. I am thanking Father in heaven for your life. Although it has been a good year but our nations needs touch of God in all area from economy to environment. We have sever drought right here in Australia where i am typing these words of mine to you. Our farmers are struggling, our firefighters are fighting , our animals are dying and our environment is literally crying… but these disasters must close us to God not  far. We need him in 2020 to actively be involved in our life. I am sure you can name it in your city many many things need God to be involved.  Look forward for more friends to join in to club.

2020 is here.

As you can see, Time is flying . Today is the last day of 2019 – can you believe it?

Okay , Let’s talk about my last encouragement post of 2019. Are you ready?

Can you take a paper and pen. I took mine.

Now take a moment and list down those desires and wishes and healing and working God has done in life of you and others. in 2019. And what is your desires and wishes and expectancy for 2020…

I got mine – look at the below , you can use this as a template and answer those questions ;

20191231_152900

Look at above photo carefully again ! Did you answer them?

Okay , Great. Love your heart.

in 2019 : 

What God has done for me ? can you list them ?

What God has not done for me ? Can you list them? ( what was the wisdom of God for it?)

What i need to be thankful for ? Can you specify them ?

Which person encouraged me most ? Can you name it ?

What miracles God has done for me? Can i list two?  and thank God for them?

In the process of healing , did i forgive someone one? if not can i do it in 2020?

Where was God in 2019 in my life? in the pain? in the joy ?

in 2020 :

One of the question i brought here for 2020 : Am I expecting Jesus pass my town? Why do i need to expect Jesus pass my town. This is very important question ,  me and you need ask each other. In Luke 5 verse 12 we read it Jesus was passing a town. for sure If Lord of Lords , King of Kings – the master of all whom created heaven and earth wants to pass your town – what would be your reaction. In my most prayers in 2019 i always include this” Jesus please pass our town- see sick people in hospital , they need you” . That brings God’s attention to your circle that you are expecting see Jesus in your town.

True that , People will be healed. We read that in Luke 5: 12b : “When the sick man saw Jesus, he fell with his face to the ground and begged him, “Lord, if you are willing, you can make me clean.” I pray it , God make us ready , that when you comes in our town i can worship you and recognise you, saying that you can heal me and cleanse me. That requires a level of courage and humbleness. Make me humble enough to ask you. The lapresy man above , acknowledged that he needs Jesus to clean him ,he was aware of his level of sickness. The poor man was years away from society and he needed a touch of Jesus – a one visit of jesus in town could’ve been enough to reach him. I pray that Jesus visit our town in 2020 and we have a kind of courage and boldness in us that we can ask him ” we need you Jesus ” . Am i expecting him to pass my town ? There are many sicks people – spiritually and physically. Opposite of our imaginations Jesus loves to reach and heal as we read in Luke 5 verse 13 ” Jesus reached out his hand and touched the man. “I am willing,” he said. “Be clean!” And immediately the leprosy left him.”  Many years of sickness immediately left the man. He was freed.  I need this kind of healing in my life , many years of me and your sickness will immediately leave us by Jesus’s hand reaching out to us. It is a good year – 2020 it is a year of Jesus passing our town and dwelling in our hearts forever. But this passing will bring our hearts to Him forever. I am expectant.

So my dear friend, how i love you! without seeing you  and i know God loves so much. you can go ahead through the list and elaborate it in your life. for another example have a short or long term goal. If you are continue going with the plan of 2019 then what would be the outcome for this year. create one.

Regardless of situation and feelings i need to TRUST God. This is one the very important element in 2020 i need to carry it with me wherever i go, this increases my Faith in him that i need God to be there for me. He prepares the way that i can see better. expecting the best out of worst in 2020. This new decade God will pour our his presence more if i only trust him and be ready , because i know his mercy are fresh and ready each morning.

There are many singles out there i pray for them , God , oh my Father , prepare the way of life for them. Let them first , we acknowledge that you are our love of our life .show them love of their life in a powerful way. Love them God. Let 2020 be a year of full of your wonders , passing our town , heal our wounds and untight their old problem, free them , do miracles, increase faith and love and hope in them. Amen

Happy New Year 2 0 2 0  to You and Your Family !

Have a special Christmas ! with your Loved ones.

 

From 

Dariush Youkhaneh 

 

Child of Love

John Piper wrote in his daily devotional ” Exult in him. Experience him as your pleasure. Know him as your treasure. ”

Bible says ” God so loved the world, as to give his only begotten Son..”

My saviour and only Love came to the world to rescue me. I can see the face of God in Jesus , In God I can see the face of Jesus.

No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8 : 37-39

God made us conqueror in Christ Jesus. This is meaning of victory. That kind of love which absloutly nothing can seperate us from it. A heavenly Love for each of us; gifted in this Christmas.

Not only that , Baby Jesus brought hope to all of us. The broken bridge between us and God has been repaired forever. Now , we have hope right next to us available 24/7. A glorious hope and future in Christ Jesus. The plan of enemy has been defeated, and God has created a new life for each one of us in Him.

Pluse, He brought healing and restoration into our life. Only by calling his name , the doors of life will be opened to us. Specially at this time of year , I always say ” Yes God is with us ” , who doesn’t want a powerful God be right with him/her.

Child of Love, Prince of Peace with us.

When H-E is with me I am richer in my skin of weaknesses. Rich in Love , Rich in wisdom and Rich in heart. When the child of Love came to our world , he made it possible , the unanswered prayer heard , the closed doors starting to be opened and our A authority has been returned to us by Him.

This Child was Himself Life , which brought a true abundant life for us, yes this is true gift of Christmas. I am slowly digesting this whats the meaning of the star they put on top of a Christmas tree! Star of David came into my world , to change me for the better , for his will and to be like Him. Not only that, Child of Love brought beauty and light into my world Where I looked to the beauty of Christmas tree and the beautiful light around it. I am unexpectedly blessed !

I am loved in this Christmas. I have Joy for this Christmas because the Child of Love is born. From every angle I look I am a winer.

Now , He brought a lot good things for me ? The question is here, what I have to bring Him? Do I have an undeal things in my heart that need to be dealt ? Or simply with a free consciuos giving Him Praise for this Christmas.

The more impotent thing which God put in my heart tonight is Jesus brought us peace and reconciliation with ourselves. Yes , we were enemy to ourselves. God broke that in Jesus Name. Another free gift of Christmas this Child of Love brought to us.

Can we praise Him with all our heart and mind and soul?

His Name is Emmanuel, God with us.

Merry Christmas to you !

Do something..

Don’t disappear, find something you love to do, do something can change you. Don’t worry about what other people thinks. You are already phenomenal. You have been born this way. Why are you stopping? Why are you casting down your soul within you ?

Hold on. Hold on what s right and truth.

Cry if you need to.

Stream if you want to.

Laguter when there is a pain

Love no need reason. No need ” a why”. No need” a condition”. Make a chance by a choice ! Do something!

Need a pair of wing to fly ? Than find it somewhere.

Need a ladder to go to heaven? Than search it till to fund it.

Just look up and keep your heads held high , you are worthy. Pull out the truth within you and proof your self you can, you deserve it.

Let see what God says about you :

You are fearfully and wonderfully made;

You can not control everything, but He can. God works are wonderful,
(I know that full well.)

You are not defined by the world but by the measure of only God whom put Love in you and created it unimaginably. You have not been out of His plan , even one inch.

Now , you can sing Hallehuja.

Hallehuja , that you are an overcomer.

Hallehuja , that you are loved.

Hallehuja that you have a God bigger than your thoughts.

You can do something, you can love Him more. Even with a small version of it.

Emmanuel , God is with us ! That is why we celebrate Christmas ! God truly is with you. Jesus born revealed Fathers love to us. This is massive my friend. If you only say and believe Him in your heart , He will come and changes everything in you.

You can believe again!

Behold Emmanual is with us.

Do somerhing.

You are beautiful.

Heaven is for real by Todd Burpo book review

True stories book is/were always my type of interest. I can’t tell where this book were happened in real however , as I believe God’s has own way to show us whats going on after our earthly dead. However , this book written during a period of time. Todd uses his companionship writer Lyenn to somehow use some writing technics. It starts of a book starts with the middle of the story. The hero of story is Todd’s Son , Colton who claimed to be 3 years old went to heaven.
Todd had doubt for the starts but during his stunning sign of heaven He slowly convinced his son went to Heaven. Colton saw Todd’s grandpa , about his future and his unknown sister.

Of course Todd is a Pastor , but the book perfectly shows his doubt and humanness. I was encouraged for the most part of the book. His Son time in Heaven was not strange and so fancy but indeed was a complete holy normal if I can call it that way.
He went. He sat on Jesus’ laps. Colton had small wings. Heaven is not tied up with time and location as we can read manu things happen in such a short time to Colton.

Todd didn’t clarify if human beings are there a spiritual or physical reality ! Of course in the end of book mentioned about Mary mother of Jesus were there, Colton mentioned about John the Baptist although the story is unrelated but Todd interviewed His Son slowly to get to know more what happened in the heaven.

Just get the book and read as neutral person , you no need to be christian to read this book. TODD used a few bible scripture to line this with Christian faith. Personally, I have no doubt God can do impossible, he can do anything , even show heaven to a 3 year old boy, Colton.
Rated : 4 star.

Three Promises of God for us in 2020

As the new year ( 2020)  fast approaching ,  I am preparing you to make some dreams , some resolutions , some passions to follow. I may still stuck in this year – unfinished dreams and wishes , unanswered prayers are the big question mark. But indeed i may did not get what i dreamed for but certainly i’ve got something else that i needed. I am trying draw a line between what i need and what i dream for. 

The things what i dream for – i do not need them to have, but i declare they are good for the future fortune. My hands are short for the ahead event will happen but i can be protected by giving my time to God. Not any God, but whom created me and my dreams!

20190615_132236 (2)

Oxford dictionary defines DREAM as:

  • a wish to have or be something, especially one that seems difficult to achieve
  • a state of mind or a situation in which things do not seem real or part of normal

It may 2020 wishes difficult to achieve but it is a dream. I need to form this state of mind which great things will happen. Of course i need the trust element and hope helmet to help me to overcome.

“When you leave off dreaming, the universe ceases to exist.”-Winston Churchill

Never underestimate the power of dreaming. What if God wants to bring to reality all my unknown dreams and wishes. How can i keep the dreams momentum on?  I may find it difficult even to have one dream but one thing i know If God brought me this far He is going to finish it till end.

Proverbs 16:9

“The heart of man plans his way, but the Lord establishes his steps/dreams. ” I have my own dreams , my own plan but this is God who shape and form these dreams.

Three Promises of God for 2020 :

I am Truly Free in 2020 : So if the Son sets you free, you are truly free. John 3: 36

God will fight for me in 2020 : The LORD shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace. Exodus 14: 14

He gives me Power/Authority  in 2020  : He gives power to the weak and strength to the powerless. Isaiah 40 :29

Take this three promises and pray over your life and let see How he can do the things amazingly.

Broken but Beautiful

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

-Psalms 37 : 3

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

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

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

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

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

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

Your are beautiful.

You are.

If I love you more would you love me less?

These were the word of an experienced and a law man. Whom found many church’s including a church in Corinth. The hero of our story, who said ” So I will very gladly spend for you everything I have and expend myself as well. If I love you more, will you love me less?”

How much are we willing spending ourselves to others ? Willing to sacrifice our time and effort to rescue someone? Paul whom even was not among chosen 12 disciples of Christ presents his everything to the Church , to the believers , to those even may not know personally but he is willing to love them more. But asking them would you love me less ? Would you even dare after i ve done all things for you. It seems Paul bringing a new culture and injecting this to the body of Christ. That is willing to love more each other. Every single day.

He knows himself as a parent , parent of church. A verse before that He said ” after all, children should not save up for their parents but parents for their children” . He is mature enough now, he passed broken boats and healed many and founded many churches himself. We are here to invest to the new generations of believers. We need to save up for them. Me and you , whom been through many troubles and hardship and know what’s right and whats not. We can inject this to the body of Christ. We dont need to be a church leader to do that. We can do it in our circle of people. In our community , in our schools , in our workplace , you name it.

If I love them more, would they love me less? Where are we in our city? Can we Love someone ? Can we improve this life of ours by loving more ? I am sure we can , I am sure we are made for this ..

Rain Fire War

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

Stand with me. Hold my hands into your heart.

AND…

Let’s look to the bright future.

2 Things Faith Does

We are not alone. I always say that. We have Holy Spirit with us. He is our helper /my/ your helper. Please do not give up on God. He loves you so much , yes you heard this millions of times. He even Pray to Fatehr for you.

Increase your Faith , because this Faith in truth can rescue you. Two things Faith Does:

1- Helps us in trouble times of life

2- Helps us how to pray in those times

Most of us grow weary when the troubles knock the door. And I believe it is completely normal. We are human. But who is better than God , our creator can help us. He knows what we are going through. I can bring it to him all details of those moments and He gives a right breakthrough in a second. In whatever process He is going to do it , that’s alright! I need Faith. That God sees in me and honors it. Yes I make mistakes and I learn from them.

I found it is very difficult to pray when I am in so much trouble of life. That is okay. Holy Spirit is there to strengthen me , He also pray for and with me. Which God is so kind like our God? So, you see Faith is so important to have. It is a key to our believe system. Faith is a motivate act of humble heart. Would you increase it ? I’ll talk about this topic more later on ..

Tell me what are some practical ways we can do to increase our Faith in Jesus?

Go Deeper

I’ve never known that fire has a story to tell. A whole story of a city.

As Sydney has been impacted greatly with the bushfires , we all pray for a drop, a drop of heaven that can cool off us all easy. I am still dazing above..

I am typing these words down as we came from a bushfire storm. Some blaming the climate change , some others put their hands up praying continually as some others closed their eyes and they are in the grave right now because of this cause. Can we blame someone for this? isn’t Australia a dry land by nature?

My heart hurts when I see people walking away from God, Hiding behind the science. Smart people has no explanation about it! Given reasons without right justification. Hours and hours has been spent to debate – the end result : no outcome , farmers business brunt down. People devouring the smokes in their lungs!

I am here to pray for my city. I am not here to blame , give reasons .. I am simply here to ask the love of God for our city and community. We are rolling into sins and idols around. We are so sensitive for our own freedom. We make a cage for a meaning of freedom and put ourselves in it. But , Really , the real meaning of life is what heaven stored for us. Whom Jesus brought the real truth. You can be following your personal legend as Paulo Coelho described it in his the Alchemist book . Or simply you can go deeper , know the real purpose of you on earth.

I don’t know about you , but I wanna go deeper. I want to know the unknown, step into the unsearchable treasures. I want to use the source of light in my heart. I can write a long emotional letter to make you impact , no I don’t want to do it. I want to Holy Spirit involve , It is out of our control , if we just surrender to His will , we can have a best life on this earth and the life to come. Some times , I do not have a word to say ! Just coming here to encourage us , pray for our city, our people , our loved ones. That is my mission remind what hope you are holding on! That , you are worthy. Let’s worship Him and go deeper. I want to be rooted to source of life. That I can keep my heads held high on that day.

A Pure Life in the Spirit

We are ears and eyes of God on earth.

I was off for a few days , as my dear grandpa graduated to heaven. A bye for now and a see you soon came to my situation. Although it was a shock for all of us – He was a good man , a good farmer man. I am proud to be his grandkid. As a wave of grieve came to us. I have never stopped Prayer. It is a painful process , your dearest person not anymore around. But we believe for eternal life. Life after death exist.

The first part of Romans 8 was a teachable lesson for me last night. A pure life in Christ. His faithful love will remain forever for me. We got a new life in the Spirit. A pure life in the Spirit means forget our past natural sinful way and get a new identity in Him. I am challenge by this, every time I read this, I tell to myself how can I put my own habit (sometimes beautiful habits ) away and wearing a new cloth of Spirit?!

But Paul says in Romans 8 , ” God put an end to our Sin ” . I am not bound in my bad habits and sinful way anymore because in Jesus I am free. By ending my bad habits and sinful nature I declare I follow the Spirit. I was thinking how can I satisfy my desires and wishes , I did whatever I could do to reach them , but not anymore as I’ve changed and challenged my self in the Spirit, now I am thinking how can I please God, what good deed I can do for Him? Testing every often if I am in the Spirit or Not ? Do I think like Jesus ? My whole attitude suddenly changed.

Now I believe even this body of mine die , I am still alive in Him , I believe God can raise up even my dead body to life becaue of His Spirit in me.

Let the Power of Spirit take control within me, Let the storm of life come, Becasue I am changed , I am raised up from death to life. When Jesus lives in me , I have purpose and plan. I know where I came from and I know where will I go.

I am a child of God , not a fearful slave anymore. In fact, I am the heir of Christ’s Glory.

Both part, His suffering and glory is mine.

***

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

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

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

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

“ remember , you are already in the light zone “

God’s land / Part 1/ A fiction story

I took my backpack , decided to go for a day trip.  I made the clouds my guider of day and the fire my guider of night. I packed 2 tuna ,a loaf of bread , a bottle water and a power bank of 4000 MA for my one day trip.  I promised to myself took good photos as much as I can – write a story and fresh my soul. 

One step – the second step I saw my self on the train right straight to a far station. I brought down my cap and took a nap as I already whispered my prayers. No headphones, No music, Just immersed my self in my nap.

“ Hey , This is last stop “  Someone gently tapped my shoulder. When I opened my eyes I saw on my right hand a field of flowers – the window of train was full of white flowers. I stood up to see it if I am in dream or I want to know where I am. My backpack was 1 meter away from me.” Why my backpack is away from me “ I told to my self. But the window , I want to see flowers. I was only 3 meters away from the train’s window. As I took my first step towards the window , The flowers were getting whiter and whiter.

“ Why is that , this is so beautiful! “ I said.

I took off my cap , left it over on the chair , and grabbed my self quickly to the window.

It was true. I was right in the middle of a village with so many white flowers on my right hand. I ‘ve never seen such this beauty. “ How God made them ?” I said.

“everything God made is beautiful like this “ a sound said. I wanted to walk on this field and touch the flowers , But I feel hungry . I went out of train and quickly walk outside. Everything was made so beautiful. I went to a corner shop , They have been giving love and patience ice creams. “ what is this ?” I said. “ This for your endurance “ a sound said.

“What taste do you want young man?” The shop person said.  I just look down the glass . there were the taste of patience, the taste of beauty , the taste of kindness..

No word!

I was speechless and suddenly again watch my time if I am not really in dream. The time was 11:10 am.

““Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes?
Matthew 6:25 NIV”

Life is more precise than all other things we see and feel around. Our every day food will come eventually, but the life you are breathing right now is matter.

Seeking the kingdom of God and His righteousness should be our first priority.

As Hudson Taylor said ” God’s work done in God’s way will never lack God’s supply “
