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.

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 🙂

Being rich?

Being rich?

If you own a BMW, If you have a castle to live, If you have servants to cook your food and make you eat, will that make you the richest man in the world? Will that make you happiest man in the world?
The answer is a straight NO! then what will make you rich?

Here are the things for what you have to be grateful in life…. 🙂

  • If you are blessed with a family,then thank God, for the orphans are living without that.
  • If you are blessed with friends, thank God for you are not like the lonely on earth.
  • If you are blessed with food, then thank God, for you are not like the hungry starved skeletal bodied people living in the poorest parts of the world.
  • If you are free from debts, and have a roof on your head, then you are RICH!

The rich and poor are always the same. They are born without nothing, gone without anything.
I have never understood that phrase before. To understand the phrase, your inner eyes need to be opened. I am speaking from my half opened inner eyes. In the journey of my life, I need to exercise love, peace, patience, serenity and encourage humility in me to completely open my inner eyes. I am not there yet 🙂 As I said in a previous post of mine, I have only started the journey. I haven’t reached anywhere or been anywhere. I have more to explore  and more to implore {from the Heavenly presence 🙂 }and from life. Let’s see where it is going to lead me 🙂 While I am moving forward, I am sharing my inner thoughts and opinions about the inner individual in all of us. What we need to improve and where we need to justify. I will keep you noted as I move ahead on my road. Hope that will help you to see YOUR LIFE through your inner eyes! 🙂
