GOD sent me for YOU! :)

Our life is like a grass or bubble, which is here today and gone tomorrow. Yet, we live our life like there is no tomorrow. What if we are called back into eternal glory, and is asked by Someone Almighty about the life that we led in earth? Will the teenage concept “YOLO” come to our mind? Will we regret anything??? Will we regret the moments that were given to us to spread the goodness and love but we didn’t because of selfishness? You and I are culprits of such a thought.

I simply meant… Our life is short. We do not know its end. So Live your life in goodness and love. Spread Godliness, cheerfulness, happiness and helpfulness among each other. Do good when we can.

Be wise and spread the sunshine..

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.

A humble dwelling with exalted love of God.

As I have mentioned in my previous post, ‘His words to me…a walk to Emmaus.’ , Humble dwellings of praise and prayers may often see God. Simply it means, the sincere and simple hearted may often experience the love of Christ.

St. Joseph of Cupertino. He is known as “The flying saint”

Today, I attended a Holy mass in another small church next to my place of residence. I needed to clear the clutter out of my mind, so a walk to Him was necessary for me. This small church was conducting the feast of St. Joseph of Cupertino. I am not a catholic (Disclaimer! : this is my own, very own belief, its is not written to offend any one’s faith! if you feel offended you can discard the reading.) So therefore I don’t celebrate the feasts of many saints. I just went to devote myself before God. I prayed. I poured before Him personally. Told Him what is wrong, asked for divine intervention. I sang the songs with others. The priest and the people was preaching about the power of the saint. I listened to the saint’s story. I have never heard about him, so I was curious. I smiled when the priest said about the saint’s flying power. The priest said that the saint was called a fool in his teen days and was rejected to the seminary due to the lack of his education. That’s when a tiny murmur in my heart whispered, “Those who pray and believe strongly, no matter what and no matter where, God will hear him and answer him. God sees the hearts. He loves the hearts.”

I know from the Bible stories that Jesus has never abandoned those who called upon Him. Those who went behind him and begged Him has always experienced “miracles”. Then why do I worry? when He Himself has told me thousand times NOT TO WORRY. Its only because of my weak faith and frail mind that I am anxious. Whatever I claim to know, isn’t anything without Him in it.

Haven’t you heard? that “The fear of lord is the beginning of wisdom.” Pro: 9:10. Yes, we have to seek and fear God in the beginning, only then true wisdom will begin in your heart (I am speaking out of experience). That is what we lost (You can rather say I lost). I am including a link to some miracles which was believed as happened. But I am stressing onto the last lines written by the author in the link

“Whatever our beliefs are, may we realize and keep in our hearts and mind the Grace and Great Love of God that He sent His only begotten Son Jesus and may we believe and live with Him through entirety.”

And keep in mind: Our hearts are the humble dwellings that God wishes to visit and live. Make sure it is worth dwelling. Coz,

   GOD SEES THE HEARTS!

 

Experience the power of prayer!

After reading a lot of blogs regarding prayer, I thought I would emphasize on the power of prayer. First I will show you certain links that I stumbled upon, while researching this quest of mine.

prayWell, I know this is a bit long list. But I want to ensure that you get the right impression and can practice what I try to show. 🙂 . Nowadays, I feel that our faith is growing weak, and prayers are growing poor. It can be because of the advent of technology on our fingertips! I can feel the growing problems in every houses. I cannot give the exact reason why bad things happen to good people. But I can tell something that can help you. My father has often told me, that the only solution to his loneliness in the gulf deserts in years of 1980 were his prayers. In the times of his helplessness with his new family and a new baby (me! 🙂 ), he often looked above. He has told me that not a prayer of his, that has been prayed in great faith, has left unanswered. I should point out that the great wealth of our family is our prayers 🙂 1491719_583798611718690_2885240096255170997_n

No one can please God, without immense faith, is what is told in the christian scriptures. “If you trust in the Lord, you are safe. Pro29:25” “Do not fear; I will help you, Isa 41:13″ These are the words from the Holy Bible given by God himself. Throughout the Holy Bible God has given us this promise! Even if you explore outside the Holy Book, You can see faith in the universe as the important part. They say that if you have faith in universe, You can get where you want to be. Or more importantly, faith in yourself, (you might have heard that!), can help you to get where you want to be. They all are speaking about one thing. FAITH. that’s the simple thing even God  told us. He just twisted it in a more better way “Have faith in Me!” is what he was telling throughout the scripture. Have FAITH IN HIM AND HE WILL LEAD THE WAY. To test the faith, you can see him giving lots of trials to the believers the Holy Bible. When they overcame the trials, they were rewarded in abundance for their endurance.

A lot of negative thoughts have been swirling inside my head for a long time. I confess that I have personally witnessed my Lord’s help a lot of  time, when things were going wrong for me, STILL I was under doubt. I wrote this post to myself and people like me, who needs constant support and encouragement. I want to let you know, if you cry out to him sincerely with your broken heart, none of your prayers will go unanswered. I remember my dad’s words from an old e-mail of his “Pray to God sincerely, and he  show you the way. he show your future ahead. he wrote in his broken english. Those words touched my heart deeply.

This is perhaps an important post of mine. I wanted to write these thoughts long back. I never saw an opportunity to bring it forefront. Now I gave this thoughts to you in the hope that it will be reached, read, grasped and meditated by you! Hope I will be able to fulfill that quest 🙂

The purpose of your life..

The purpose of your life..

I have had a real bad feeling recently in my journey of life. I am not able to do anything that I want in my life. I feel stagnant. I lack determination. I feel I have lost my way. Earlier, if I needed something in my life, I will do everything in my power to get the thing DONE! But now, I lack the power within me. I lack the determination to get there. I tried every methods, to bring back my old self of contentment, determination and the self made power. I read books. I scorched through websites. I tried reading the Holy scriptures, to know what the Holy One has to say about my distress. Everything had the same one message ” Have faith! Trust in God/Universe, Let go, Be yourself!, Visualize what you want” etc.. Then I did a self examination, to find out what I lack. I found out that I visualize what I want, but I don’t FOCUS on it. I lack courage. I found that in certain circumstances, I am being someone else rather than being myself! I found that I never trusted anything. I found that I lost the trust in me. Then,I LET GO of myself, in the front of the ULTIMATE POWER. I realized that I wasn’t praying in real. I was praying for the sake of praying, for the sake of the DUTY that was instilled upon me by elders. For the sake of fulfilling that duty, I just used to blabber something to God and get lost to the world of technology, where friends were awaiting me. Or I got lost in my useless day dreams. Now I realized, that the power in me became stagnant. The tiny murmmering voice in me became silent. My instincts got wrong. Still He was loving me, patiently showing me that HE EXISTS. I never realized that He was even hearing my simply blabbered prayers. Today I stand before to make you realize the”power that lies within you.” If you feel you are lost, sit somewhere silently and meditate. Listen to what the beat of your heart says. “It will speak your purpose.”

Beyond….

Beyond....

See what is beyond our thinking mind. The poster says that we have a silent stream of consciousness that gives answer to all our problems. The answer to our problems lies within us. It takes a bit of patience, meditation and prayers to open the inner eye
“Beyond our mind, there is a silent stream of consciousness that quenches our thirst to all the problems in us. Its upto us to discover the stream”
