CONFIDENCE COMES FROM CARING.CARING COMES FROM LOVE.

It’s really a serious issue that needs to be resolved.Do you know anything about the issue?Very simple yet its complicated because we all love to be called as confident people.

Undoubtedly we are confident of our thoughts and the actions.We are the people of Twenty First Century ,a century ahead of all that we have left behind,a century with a revolution in technology.Are we confident of our well being?

In my previous posts I had written in a nutshell about the blessings and works of science.Yes,science and technology has been so mesmerizing that we have forgotten the most important thing in the life of a human being.

That’s our love for ourselves.We are not able to love ourselves because of our busy schedule.We have no time to take care of ourselves yet whatever we are doing ,we are doing it for our good.

I have a question to ask ;who is confident of enjoying the next day’s sunlight? You might have the confidence but I am not so confident because sometimes I don’t follow the rules of the nature.

The steps to fight a foreign body are ;we have to value the gifts of the nature for instant the darkness ,it reminds us to take rest but we have the artificial lights to go on with our tasks even late at night.

This is the most dangerous aspect of modern men and women.The nature has calculated everything very accurately to enable us to live for hundreds of years like the people of the Old Testament .Literally we have no love for ourselves and that proves we don’t love our dear ones.

The creator also knew that as human beings we all would love ourselves hence he has given all of us the greatest commandment “Love your neighbor as you love yourself.”

So ,let’s not think badly of ourselves ,let’s not feel that we are helpless but let us make a resolution that we would take proper care of ourselves , love ourselves and boldly stand against all odds whether it’s a natural calamity or a pandemic .Then finally we would certainly be the winner over battles of human beings and also of the devil .

Thank you very much.Take care.

PROVIDENTIAL CARE WHEN YOU ARE IN A FIX.

We have everything yet we require something which would keep us safe and secure when things don’t seem to be in our favour.

 Psalm 127      

A song of ascents.Of Solomon                              Unless the Lord builds(A) the house,
    the builders labor in vain.
Unless the Lord watches(B) over the city,
    the guards stand watch in vain.
In vain you rise early
    and stay up late,
toiling for food(C) to eat—
    for he grants sleep(D) to[a] those he loves.(E)

Children are a heritage from the Lord,
    offspring a reward(F) from him.
Like arrows(G) in the hands of a warrior
    are children born in one’s youth.
Blessed is the man
    whose quiver is full of them.(H)
They will not be put to shame
    when they contend with their opponents(I) in court.(J)

Psalm 121

A song of ascents.

I lift up my eyes to the mountains—
    where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord,
    the Maker of heaven(A) and earth.(B)

He will not let your foot slip—
    he who watches over you will not slumber;
indeed, he who watches(C) over Israel
    will neither slumber nor sleep.

The Lord watches over(D) you—
    the Lord is your shade at your right hand;
the sun(E) will not harm you by day,
    nor the moon by night.

The Lord will keep you from all harm(F)
    he will watch over your life;
the Lord will watch over your coming and going
    both now and forevermore.(G)

Recite the following Psalms daily if possible as true weapon besides wearing a mask and keeping social distances against the works of the evil one .It is effective against all diseases .

Thank you very much.Take care

FAITH WITHOUT ACTION IS DEAD

Last year ,we weren’t in a position to commemorate Good Friday or Easter Sunday but thanks be to God that we have celebrated it this year.

Many have left for their Heavenly abode in the event of the Pandemic,we pray so that their departed souls may rest in peace.

We had begun our new year 2021 with hopes and aspirations but it’s fully uncertain as we are having new records of covid affected people in different parts of the world with different symptoms of the second wave or even third wave.

Practically speaking we know our holy Books by heart,we know all about the sufferings of Good Friday and the glorious resurrection of the Master but we have not made it a part and parcel of our life.

We can afford to lose our beloved ones owing to the pandemic but we cannot truly be like the master.We surrender ourselves to the Lord as we cannot tolerate the sufferings of a true disciple.

Covid is a new word but the word pandemic is not so it’s found even in the world’s oldest books.It has tamed human beings from time to time to ensure that like many other species we don’t become extinct.

Our sufferings really make us strong just the way purity of gold is tested.We are allowed to ignore sufferings.If a person is destined to suffer then none would be able to relieve him of his troubles.

“It is not the strongest of the species that survives,nor the most intelligent.It is the one that is most adaptable to change”.

Interesting quote by Charles Darwin,it is the one that is most adaptable to change survives.It clearly tells us that we have to understand ,what we really need to do.

I don’t really remember whether I have already said it or not but I repeat it ,”Decomposers survive on dead and decaying matter”.

If we are keeping the word of God alive in us by practicing it then we cannot be considered as dead .If we are not dead then none of the microbes,fungi or virus would be able to kill us .

We need to make thorough use of the message of Good Friday and Easter in the truest sense by carrying it to all those who we meet daily.

Let our faith speak through our actions and let it be a deadly weapon against all kinds of contagious diseases.

HE IS RISEN

There is hope of survival for everyone because he is risen.He had fallen many times while carrying the heavy cross but he had decided to rise for all of us .

That’s the spirit of Easter ,we have to do something for everyone because our success lies in it.

It’s useless to be successful when so many people have fallen and are not able to rise again.

Whenever we feel that we won’t be able to complete a task ,we ought to look upto the cross for strength.

He didn’t complain of being punished for no fault of his own because he knew that was a great opportunity to save mankind.

Sometimes his story and ours don’t match because we try to find opportunity for our own interest but he sought for ways and means to save mankind.

He was trying to resolve a matter that existed from the beginning of creation .The banishing of our first parents from the garden of Eden for the sin of disobedience.

Before him people had accepted life and death as it is but he wanted to change the system,he wanted to pay our debts in full so that we won’t remain slaves of the Satan.So that we all could have a choice to enter into Paradise.

So it’s time to rejoice and remain alert because the devil has failed in all his efforts to tempt Jesus hence he will try hard so that we don’t become victorious like our Master.

Wish you all a Happy Easter ,take care.

Thanks a lot for reading.

Even the people who betray you are part of the plan.

In this beautiful world,human beings have not only scaled the highest mountain peaks but have reached Mars and other planets and are trying to prepare friendly environment for habitation.

Yet the simple equation that comprehends human life on earth is ;despite being the most intelligent beings on earth we are dissatisfied with whatever we have achieved so far.

To resolve such problems the idea that comes to our mind is ;someone is not cooperating ,someone is against my projects and and plans ,someone is praying for my failure etc..etc.

Our assumptions are not at all invalid but that’s for those who do not believe in blessings but we believe in blessings and we begin all our ventures after having it commissioned by the mighty Lord.

Then what is it that stops us from moving forward bravely?It is our rationalism.Rationalism is dangerous for spiritual upliftment.That’s because it is often misused by the Satan.The devil prompts whenever we are about to reach our goal .

We are made to use our reasonings and then we try to find faults with others and abandon our true helpers.

Let’s think about the fate of Joseph son of Jacob ,who was sold by his brothers to the Midianite traders and we know how he rose to power by remaining faithful to God.He was able to ignore the temptation or the plan of seduction by Potiphar.

Later he interpreted the dreams of the Chief Butler and the chief baker and got back his prestigious position .He not only rose to power and helped the people at the time of famine but he was also able to help his own brothers.

He didn’t blame God for being separated from his own brothers but he praised God and remained loyal to him and God honoured him with all that a person required to live a happy life .

We can learn a very good lesson from the above story ;we mustn’t ignore anyone on this earth because may be the person whom we ignore is the only one capable of resolving our problems at proper time .

That means we have to wait patiently and accept the circumstances because in whatever situations we might be ,that’s the perfect one for him,for you and for me.There’s nothing better than this.

Thank you very much for reading ,take care.

Affliction enables a fortunate person to go closer to the Omnipotent

We all are travellers with our own interests trying to follow the path that seems to be more comfortable.

But more interesting fact is that as simple human beings we cannot always be in a state of joy and happiness.

That’s because we are living on this earth for a purpose and we cannot determine what our purposes are or would be.

The saying “Man proposes and God disposes” is very true because we are experiencing it every moment.

We have to understand the fact that a father would never inflict afflictions on his dear children unnecessarily.If we are tired of afflictions then it’s because he is planning something worth having.

Yes beloved ones a father is ever ready to die to save his children .He is the one who can convert a messy affair into a lovely message hence we ought have a strong faith even when things don’t happen the way we expect.

Happy are those, who are suffering and are tolerant to afflictions inflicted upon them because that is the bridge which takes them closer to the loving father.

So be brave and have all your undertakings ,assignments blessed before you start a new venture so that you can have a profit of hundredfold.

Thank you for reading ,take care.

YOU WILL NEVER INFLUENCE THE WORLD BY TRYING TO BE LIKE IT.

The world is looking for inspiration,we all are trying hard to find something interesting to make others happy.

We cannot say that there aren’t good people to help others in their dire need.So, much good work is done in every sphere of life.What we have to do is to get out of our negativities.

For example in the last twenty years the world has changed so much that some people find themselves helpless when they are handed over a new gadget on their anniversary.They can’t even operate it .How amazingly they are made !

It has happened because some great people strove hard to make something different,something very interesting and mind blowing .

The new generation is crazy for the invention of such gadgets ,they are all after it.They can’t live without it.The inventors didn’t know how amazing it would be ,they worked day and night and accomplished it.

We are enthusiastic of doing something different yet we are waiting for inspiration.Trust me every achievement is based on less of inspiration and more of perspiration.

Yes ,there are people to inspire us but we have to learn to be inspiration for others.There are many such instances where a lonely person succeeded in completing a herculean task with no inspiration at all .

That was because of the necessity,we have to find ways and means to inspire our little children or grown up ones to ensure that they are not out of the track.

In today’s world we find almost everything except true happiness and joy.We have completed almost half the journey without much support but we can’t dream the same for our little ones.

Whatever is available may not be nice for them so we have to be examples for them so that the little angels on this earth would find something worth doing or following.

Today’s generation is more intelligent and wise ,they don’t accept anything that is fake.They try and test before copying it.They have more than enough to follow and to be inspired but some of them are looking for something different.Therefore we ought to be the torchbearers for them so that they are not let down.

Let’s do something different ,something unique and be true inspiration for the billions of sparkling little eyes.

WE CANNOT BECOME WHAT WE WANT BY REMAINING WHAT WE ARE

There is a common reason for the sufferings of most people on this earth and that’s our love for whatever we have in the present.

We love it even if it’s useless and monotonous , We are reluctant to move forward because we accept our sufferings as if we are born to live with it.

Sometimes life is a real nightmare,every moment we drag ourselves for the next assignment with our dreams preserved in our little hearts.

For the fulfillment of our little dreams we have to grow and understand the fact that every object has a perfect place for it’s existence just like every organism lives in an ideal environment.

Similarly we have to create an ideal environment for the fulfillment of our dreams of love,peace,harmony and prosperity.

At present there’s a major problem on this earth and that’s our faith in the so called fake well wishers .It’s high time that we all strive hard to find out the real motives of the well wishers.

If we are truly interested in creating an environment befitting for the next generation then we have to change ,we have to ponder over the fact that however hard we work and save our riches for the little ones a question always remains in everyone’s mind and that’s ;would they be happy in life despite all the riches we are trying to leave behind?

In the next few years there won’t be true love on this earth.Human beings will be judged by the unit of wealth and riches.We cannot dream of a world of love for our children by remaining in a world of hatred and jealousy.

We have to ensure the fact that our children are in a world full of true love and not just machines and robots and that’s possible only when we are ready to spread love among all and are ready to speak against those who are spoiling the bond of love among human beings across the world.

I am the vine,you are the branches.

Why do we need to share spiritual matters frequently?’At the time of Patriarch Noah, people on the earth were very wicked.Their minds were constantly filled with violence,evil thoughts,and they did many terrible things.’

They were not only punished but they all perished because they had separated  themselves from the good Lord.They were feasting instead of fasting ,they married and remarried they ignored the message of the Lord so their intelligence could neither save them nor their off springs.The flood washed them away  when it was least expected.

The pandemic has changed many things but not our attitude towards our neighbours and our activities.Many have decided to be united with the Lord to grow and be fruitful whereas the others have taken it for granted as a time to fulfill their dreams in a diabolical way.Let’s ponder over the verse mentioned in the beginning of this post and find out the reason for living through him( Jesus Christ) ,with him ( Jesus Christ) and in him ( Jesus Christ)

‘He who abides in me,and I in him,bears much fruit’ now the question is; who can abide in the Lord?Certainly a god fearing person,a person who not only prays and reads the word of God regularly but also puts the word of God into his own life and practices it accordingly.

‘I in him’ what kind of a person does God abide in?A person who is considered a vessel of love,peace and chastity.A person who is growing every moment and is multiplying in all his dealings .

I can’t say that I love the Lord ,I pray daily and I have literally nothing to save because I am always helping the needy and yet if I say that I am homeless,jobless and dying of dreadful disease then there is a major problem with me.

In such a case one needs to have a good examination of conscience to find out whether I am dwelling in the house of the Lord or not.“I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever” -Psalm 23

If I am truly dwelling in the house of the Lord then I am supposed to grow and flourish and my beloved ones and I won’t be victim of pestilence.I won’t live like beggars and be a borrower on the contrary I shall be able to distribute to the needy .

“The Lord is trustworthy in all he promises and faithful in all he does”-Psalm 145:13 If anyone says that he loves the Lord and abides by the statutes of the Lord but he is always in trouble then other people would have doubt in the word of the Lord and also in the promises of the Lord.

So before I wrap it up I humbly request you all my beloved ones to spread the message of living with the true Vine otherwise; if we are separated from the Vine then in the coming days life would certainly be miserable because I am damn sure that we are passing through a series of chastisement and it’s only the beginning.

We can’t afford to be reluctant in the matter of spiritual upliftment because we love each other, we have our beloved ones to look after and above all we ought to live to work for the greater glory of God.

PEOPLE WHO AVOID FAILURE ALSO AVOID SUCCESS

Success is contagious,it is success that enables others to dream of great things.Great things don’t happen by chance ,it is the outcome of a determined person’s little effort.

The first condition of success is consistency because success is like seedlings so there is the need to water them regularly and prune them whenever necessary.

People who are scared of failure usually stop dreaming because such a person suffers of lack of confidence.It takes time to believe in one’s capabilities ,self respect and trust which is very important to move forward.

People with lack of faith and lack of self esteem sometimes take worst decision like suicide.So to dream of success one needs to believe that he or she has been bestowed with unlimited potential to grow like the others .

The growth of others aren’t the same as an individual so when a person’s capabilities don’t match with the others doesn’t really mean it’s failure.We all are gifted with different talents so that after putting in enough effort we are able to produce something unique.

The strange thing is that whatever we are lacking today on this earth are because of our attitude of copying others ,we often dream to be like our hero but the fact is that the world needs something which has not yet been discovered.

When we try to be like someone whom we admire and fail we give up .We give up because we are different from our heroes,we are not ready to accept the fact that we need to make use of the qualities we possess to create something totally different from the others.

Not utilising the raw materials available at ones disposal is a tragic fact of a human being.It’s pain that enables us to achieve gain.It is not comfort but constant perspiration that prepares a person for something mind blowing,something startling.

The different awards available on this earth conferred to people who take the pains to do something really different teaches us the fact that we must not fight shy of sufferings and failures to achieve what we are working for.

The best way to achieve what seems to be unachievable is to have indomitable spirit to accomplish what we have decided to do and then success will always be around us because SUCCESS IS THE BEST FRIEND OF PEOPLE WHO FALL FREQUENTLY AND YET RISE AND RESTART AGAIN AND AGAIN.
