The name on the gravestone.

WHAT YOU BRING TO THE WORLD- NOTHING!

WHAT YOU TAKE FROM THE WORLD-NOTHING!

Then why do you live your life as if you own everything?

I am going to tell you a story. Listen carefully:

Once a Swiss industrialist, who was living in Bale, happened to cross a cemetery one winter’s day. Snow covered most of the gravestones making it impossible to read the inscriptions. Suddenly he stopped. On one gravestone sheltered by a pine tree a name could be read. It was his own name “Charles Mez”. He did not know who that namesake of his might be, whose body rested there, but the fact that the only legible name in the whole cemetery was his own made a profound impression on him. “Where would I be now? If my body, separated from my soul, lay under there.” Standing alone in the middle of that icy landscape illustrating the state of his soul, he acknowledged his sins, his indifference, his scorn for God’s love. The gospel heard on other occasions without him paying attention to it, suddenly impressed itself upon him as something living and personal. He turned to Jesus, prayed and obtained peace of heart that the Son of God gives. From that day life of Charles Mez showed that he belonged to Jesus Christ. His joy was to serve Him.

Understand just a small lesson from this. If we are born on this earth one day, we will go from this earth on an unexpected one day. Don’t wait until then to acknowledge your life and your deeds. Do not let your soul suffer and weep for the misdeeds you did on earth. This life on earth is temporary. You can see the cruelty of death around you, yet you are kept safe by the love of  God. Think how much he loves you for that. He kept you safe from evil men, lustful desires, evil traps, evil spirits, disasters, diseases, wild animals, sudden death etc.. He blessed you with a home, family, shelter and food. Think how much it means. How much it is worth. He gave a gift of Bible full of promises. So isn’t it your turn to thank Him for all that is given to you and your loved ones? Yes, that’s what God loves so much.He loves acknowledgement of  His blessings. So isn’t you turn to acknowledge Him as God?

So pray everyday, Make God a priority in your life, forgive others, Love unconditionally and “Do good, speak good and feel good.” Don’t wait for things until its too late. Start from now. Have a blessed day! 🙂

P.S: I am giving you two titles to have a glance. These are books written by the respective authors. These two realities opened my inner eyes. Please have a look.

The LoVE we LoST .to. the LuST.in us..

Prayer restores our inner lost soul, so never cease praying!

Prayer restores our inner lost soul, so never cease praying!

We lost the purity of love. We really lost the way to love purely. Each of us have encountered love in our own way. Whether it is through our better half or through the people around us. Each of us gives love according to the goodness in us. I should say or rather point out, that this goodness in us is starting to diminish.

This goodness in us have been taken over by evil in us. In case of love, the evil in us is LUST. The lust over body. The greed for money and power. These has replaced the pure love in us. True love in our heart has abandoned us, due to the occupation of the vacant space in our heart by lust.

Do you want to know why? Coz we lost God’s presence in us. God is love.

God is omnipresent. He is merciful. He is willing to forgive and forget coz HE IS LOVE. Now why am I speaking these words? It is because I happen to stumble upon something. And as usual it opened my inner eyes. Here it goes:

1 John 4:8
He who does not love has not become acquainted with God [never did know Him], for God is love.

Love can be seen, it cannot be hid. If you LOVE it will SHOW! No matter how much you try to hide love, you just will not be successful. Love is so powerful that it has to be MANIFEST.

LOVE without HOLINESS is not love but lust!

Love is not a suggestion, in fact it’s a commandment. Love is the essence of a transparent godly character. Love is so awesome that when we exercise love, love begins to flood out of our spirit, soul and body.

When the LOVE of God is present in our lives, it enables and encourages us to be pure, it releases purity.

2 Timothy 2:22
Shun youthful lusts and flee from them and pursue righteousness, faith, love, peace in fellowship with all, who call upon the Lord out of a pure heart.

Holiness is connected with Love, and when we make the connection, we will be able to live a HOLY life filled with the LOVE of God.

Listen to your soul. For it cries out to you. Listen the pain in your soul. For it needs love and wants to give love. Then who are we to stop it?

Light allows us to see things clearly, when begin to walk in the Light of Christ, we allow the light to shine on us and through us. The light shows us stuff that needs to be cleared out of our lives so that the brilliance of the light might shine out unhindered.

Without knowing God first, You cannot know pure love. No matter how much ever you claim to know!

A.

Let our love be of God, heart and soul rather than body. Let it be eternal. Let it remain forever! Let it never change!

The battlefield inside my head and soul..

Again I fell down in my spiritual journey. I don’t know what to tell my God. I just look up and cross my fingers. I haven’t been anywhere in life. I have experienced failures. I failed the battlefield inside my head and soul.. sigh!

Today while scourging through the word press posts, I came across some lines in a post it goes like this

The process of stepping out of routine, taking a leap of faith, and breaking habits is extremely challenging and takes more self-discipline than the decision to make the change; it is an hourly, daily exercise in faith and intentionality.

Taking a leap of faith and break of habits—-> requires self discipline, hard work, determination and persistence from my part. To speak frankly, I lack the above qualities. I write over here, to make myself realize that I need to go more. I wanted to remind myself and people like me that we haven’t reached anywhere. When I look back, I feel I have lost myself. My past had darkness and brightness within itself. I think I have brought forth the darkness and lost the brightness. Now I am immersed in darkness. Thoughts like I-have-lost-myself, I-am-good-for-nothing disturb my head each and everyday. Mostly I-am-a-complete-failure occupy my thoughts nowadays. So I guess those lines were written for me, by Someone above. I am trying to take this extremely challenging routine. But I need constant persistence and prayers. I am just praying to my best friend Jesus, to bear with me and help me X( Hope he would hear… May God bless you all!
