It won’t be proper to say that we all are struggling to achieve our goals.For that end we all are trying hard as we cannot accept our failures in certain matters like the success of our offsprings.The success of our children depends solely on our good performance.Our failure to win means the sufferings of our beloved ones.So we are really cautious about certain things associated to our daily routine.In such matters usually we don’t compromise. Our troubles in family ties,our sufferings in our workplaces are all borne with ease only to make sure that our kids don’t suffer.
Very few speak or rather call our so called diligence as MORTIFICATION but it can be rightly called as so.Infact many would love to call it as sacrifice.The term mortification is used by sages,by celibate people who are trying to achieve a greater achievement like spiritual powers. So the common people fight shy of this term.Nevertheless this very term is important in the lives of true parents,for bringing up children in the true perspectives parents must deny certain things, certain attitudes to ensure the well being of their kids.
Why is it so necessary?It is necessary so that our children learn to stay away from certain things which are harmful for them, When children see that their parents are hard working,are very honest and loyal to each other they think many times before committing a serious mistake and try to avoid anything that will defame the family.Most of us know little of the hidden spiritual powers available for everyone on this earth or in nature.In fact everyone except a few pray or worship as a ritual.That is because there are no laboratories to prove the powers of prayers and mortifications in our society.
I want to bring out some points in favour of my sayings
-There is no need to believe it before realizing it,and to realize it we (Parents)must keep our eyes open to the surroundings around us.We must look at the parents of other children, and study for a while if they are performing well and then the reason for that. If they are not performing well then the reason for that too.
-You don’t have to believe in what I am writing,before judging it.Good parents are rewarded with good children on condition,and the condition is you have to be loyal to each other.You can’t for any reason spoil the relationship of faith between husband and wife.That is the true mortification a couple can perform for the best performance of the child.
The moment the relationship of faith is broken anything can happen.We all know that there are two different powers ruling the people of this earth.The Good and Evil the mysterious fact is that they don’t support each other in any case.Only when a husband is not loyal to the wife the evil power or the devil takes the chance to distract the child by enticing with different evil practices. Trust me I have studied it in more then a hundred families and the consequence has been worst owing to parent’s misunderstanding
In today’s world, we can not have good citizens without mortification the devil is scared of mortification and he is allowed to destroy family ties in a quarrelsome family, where their is no respect for each other, no responsibility , no self sacrifice. Parents ought to be pious.The dishonesty of parents allow evil people to make hell of their chilren’s lives.The hard work of parents can be useful only when children grow in a loving and caring family.Apart from genetic or hereditary reasons no child is supposed to be born deformed or handicapped.( I have already mentioned that there are no labs on this earth to prove spiritual powers.) It is because of the presence of evil power, that does the harm.Now if you ask me for a proof then I can only say that a perfect teacher never creates an imperfect student.Similarly when we human beings can give a guarantee of the products we make or manufacture then can The Good Lord/God make or create deformed children……? Ponder over it and let me know.
Every year we try to do something for the good of our soul during the Lent season,like avoiding non- veg for 40 days,staying away from those evil habits of ours which we can’t give up.It’s indeed a beautiful time for sinner like me as I really try to pray more at this time of the year.Chances like these are really rare as every year we miss some of our dear ones because they have departed. They are no more with us on this earth,they are in their resting place.
(I am extremely sorry I cannot thank the person who has created this beautiful card as I do not know the name of the person I hope the maker won’t mind and forgive me my ignorance)
No one can say whether next year at this time I will be on this planet or not.So it’s judicious to make proper use of this chance.Some say Lent is not mentioned in the Holy Bible, so why do people follow it?
It’s like calling that person dad whom my mom taught me to call,it was not known to anybody else, it’s not mentioned in any other book yet we follow our mom’s instruction.That helps a child to have a overall growth in the company of it’s parents.Some even say that the scripture tells us to practise our piety privately not to make a show of it and that’s absolutely correct.Still I would love to tell the world of my duties at this time of the year so that my well wishers will help me to stay away from those activities which I would like to stay away from because I am a human with weaknnesses.The pious and religious people who are aware of their duties throughout the year need not bother of doing anything special at this time.It is an ideal time to gather grace for oneself and for others especially for the sick and ailing dear ones who need God’s providential grace for healing.
Lent is the time of alms giving,saving something for the unfortunate ones.Thanks be to God for the many poor and helpless people around us. They are among us so that we can be charitable.Charity is the one and only motive of the God fearing people,without it we are really very helpless and aimless too.After all what matters to God most is our attitude.We cannot be enough with our charity but our trying to do it will help us to grow in the heavenly love of the father.The way of the cross good confessions and daily prayers for the next 40 days will certainly take us closer to God through our intimacy with our fellow human beings.Lent is the special season to think of our nothingness before the creator.Everyone has to go one day leaving behind either a huge wealth or little.How lofty is the work of charity before God and in the mind of man.It gives us a sense of satisfaction and immense joy which can’t be explained to rude and unkind people.It is the time to cleanse the soul of it’s filthiness. We should pray for those who hate us and are trying to harm us.It’s time to shed tears for the atonement of our shortcomings. Above all it is the perfect time to love everyone.Love covers a multitude of sins.It is love that helps an individual to survive even in hostile circumstance. A LOVELY HYMN FROM THE’ SING TO THE LORD’
“Love it was that made us, and it was love that saved us,love was God’s plan when he made man, God’s divine nature is love.
Born of God’s love we must love him,That’s why he made us to love him,but only when we love all men,can we partake of God’s love.
Love is a wonderful thing,Joy in our hearts it will bring,where there’s true love there is God and where there is God there is love.
I am very sorry to say that I have been inconsistent in writing a post on JOVIAL.I read posts of you all whenever I get a little time.It’s not that I don’t have anything to write about but like many others I am also suffering of my weaknesses. It’s not really physical weakness but it’s spiritual weakness.My worry is to be truly a righteous person but that is distant goal to achieve. Practically speaking I am little bothered about the deadly virus or any other dreaded disease because I know that there is someone who has taken care of me all these years.The Good Lord is true to his commitment hence he will not let me down when I am living for a purpose.The same applies to all the others,in the last 48 years great leaders,billionaires have left this earth empty handed yet I have survived like you all.This is a startling miracle for me and I can’t find ways to be grateful to him nevertheless I am trying hard to live a pious life but it’s not possible without his grace.
Trust me,the only fear that haunts me always is to grow spiritually in a world of fantasy. I have realized the fact that the true path to overcome fear is to fear the Lord.First of all we have to trust ourselves to trust the Lord.A man of little faith cannot have great faith without a miracle,without the power of the Lord.The Lord is the master of not only of the Sabbath but he is also the master of everything.He has the power over everything but to tap that power we have to be in touch with him .Whether we are trying to resolve our problems or not depends on our activities and the good Lord understands it well when we are trying to stay away from the statutes of this world to be closer to him and that is the sign of our healing.
Let us not give up our hope in the Lord,he wants to take up all our iniquities once again to save us all.His only pleasure is to look after the lost ones and that is why he died on the Cross .He has paid a ransom so that we don’t remain as Satan’s slaves.Friends, always find ways to present special gifts to friends.Satan also present gifts to those who are loyal to him but the sad fact is that the devil deals with things like hatred,lies,greed,lust,destruction, conspiracy and diseases. So whenever we are friendly with the evil one we receive presents like inspiration to commit evils and also diseases. It is the Lord who can free us from fears and phobias.He is the one who commanded dreaded diseases and even death to depart from innocent people of his time.So beloved ones let’s take the decision to live a chaste life to avoid chastisement .
