I have nothing to say when pictures speak a lot.Hats off to all the women writers and bloggers for their dedication despite the hardships of life.

“I will make them a covenant of peace and banish wild beasts from the land,so that they may dwell securely in the wilderness and sleep in the woods.And I will make them and the places all around my hill a blessing,and I will send down showers in their season;they shall be showers of blessings”.-EZEKIEL 34:25-26
The Lord speaks of a covenant of peace with ‘them’,he didn’t mention anything about all the people of this earth.Very specifically he shows his immense love and blessings for those special people who would never ever cease to honour the mighty Lord.
I personally feel that the Lord has spoken about this earth not literally of the woods or the wilderness because we have converted the beautiful earth into a barren land by our sins,by our iniquities and pride .
The Lord speaks of a covenant of peace because this world is devoid of peace as we have become arrogant .He is not assuring all of us of his peace but only for ‘them’,those who are ready to value his peace ,to those whom he considers to be his children.
The Lord assures his true followers that he would banish wild beasts from the land for their safety and security.He is capable of doing it in fact the devil has already started to cleanse this earth of all the deadly human beings because we have empowered him ,we have made him our king with all our atrocity ,vengeance,hatred,lust and greed .
If the head of a family is kind and generous then peace reigns in such a family similarly when a tribe , generation or a community possess cruelty and is worshipper of evil practices will have the devil as the deity and thus assigns the devil to create confusion and unrest in the society.Today’s world is more under the control of the evil one than the Good Lord because we don’t assign him to bless us ,we don’t accept his sovereignty over us.He wishes to control every action of ours but we have to surrender to the Lord and invite him to save us from sinking.No one sinks in living water and dies but possess everlasting life because he is the Living Water.
The Lord wishes to cleanse all around his hill for the sake of his own children.Just imagine how loving Lord we have.We ought to be worthy of his blessings.We have to cleanse ourselves to receive his blessings.No one serves delicious food in dirty broken dish,hence we need to be blessed containers to hold his love ,peace and his blessings.
Let us accept the Lords invitation and enjoy his love ,peace and the showers of blessings without which we are about to perish.
Thank you very much ,God bless.🙏

My beloved friends,it’s time for me to be grateful for all that I have and all that I am today because that’s the real positivity which will guide me to my destiny.We invite frustrations in our lives whenever we allow negativity to grow in us.
Human nature is to calculate everything to make sure that we are not at a loss.It’s good to have a clear picture of our earnings and incentive before stepping out to implement a project but trust me it doesn’t always match.So far whatsoever I have received have been exactly what I deserve .
My sound financial status and my comforts are enough to divert my thoughts for my creator.I am not wealthy because I need to rely on my Lord,I need to be humble,I need to be pious and chaste because I believe that my chastity is more powerful than the best doctors of this world for the physical well being of my loved ones.
If only I would have more than enough then perhaps I would have been an adulterer or a slanderer.I wouldn’t have the same trust and faith in the Lord.So the Lord is merciful to me that’s why he has given me only what I require and has thus helped me to recite the Lord’s prayer daily ;give us this day our daily bread….
Hence,the present status of a person doesn’t really speak or justify such person’s relationship with the creator.In most cases an employee gets all the benefits of his/her hard work at the time of his retirement.
So cheer up for all that is happening and would happen because there’s a silver lining behind every clouds.
Thanks a lot for reading .Take care.
It’s the beginning of a New Year and I wish you all a prosperous new Year.Like many of you I do not know what the future has stored in for all of us.I have been inconsistent in writing and reading because I am not able to cope with the surmountable pressures of my job.Apart from that I find it difficult to follow you all because of very poor internet connections.It’s really very disheartening but I have to accept life as it is.
Nevertheless you all are like gems to me .I feel sad when I have no time to write or read.I am sure you all are doing well and are safe and secure by the grace of our Lord.
All these days I have been pondering over this proverb “If you repay good with evil,evil will never leave your house”.I am trying to get out of my evil practices to be able to work for the common good of the masses.I had not dreamt of a world like this hence I am at a fix.I am also reflecting on the fact that evil is not ready to leave this beautiful world.Frequently mankind is threatened by evil and the prince of evil conveys a message that I have to mend my ways.
Last year I had enough doubt of the New Year so I hadn’t posted any thing ,neither on Jovial nor in the Social media .I had not wished any one a Happy New Year.
This year I have doubt about 2021 as I feel that it’s going to be a year of Natural Calamity.Please pray incessantly to avert all kinds of mishaps in this year.I don’t want to instill fear but a hope of prayerful life to remain safe and secure.Despite the doubt I am wishing you all a happy New Year because there is hope in prayers I mean we all can stand against all odds if we agree to pray for each other even though we are different .
Thanking you for your support and pray for a better world .
Not everyone and every country commemorates thanks giving day but I really like it a lot because there is a need to show our gratitude to those who have stood beside us in good as well as bad times.
It’s not the material gain that one always looks forward to in return for the kind acts but it is our remembrance of such acts of kindness makes our benefactors glad.
Similarly we need to thank the good Lord for his love and concern for sinners like me.
Let’s read a little passage from the Holy Book .11 Now on his way to Jerusalem,(A) Jesus traveled along the border between Samaria and Galilee.(B) 12 As he was going into a village, ten men who had leprosy[a](C) met him. They stood at a distance(D) 13 and called out in a loud voice, “Jesus, Master,(E) have pity on us!”
14 When he saw them, he said, “Go, show yourselves to the priests.”(F) And as they went, they were cleansed.
17 Jesus asked, “Were not all ten cleansed? Where are the other nine? 18 Has no one returned to give praise to God except this foreigner?” 19 Then he said to him, “Rise and go; your faith has made you well.”(I)
I thank you all great blogger friends,Sirs and madams for your constant support,for reading and commenting whenever time permits you.I pray for you all to the Almighty to bless you abundantly and keep you safe and secure for his greater glory.
I am just a speck of dust,
taken care of by my Lord.
He breathed in me his power so just,
to make use it well as he can afford.
He has been loyal to me,
since ages unknown and untold.
Though I have been unjust to him,
He’s given his blessings to unfold.
I have been loved by so many people,
since I have been blessed from above.
My Lord controls my life’s real role,
even today he’s begging for our love.
It’s unfair to seek for more joy in life,
his grace is enough for positive vibe.
Extreme joy creates uncanny affair,
A world where none is ready to share.
Thanks for his grace to keep us alive,
for piety as achievement to strive.
We are helpless without his grace
on disturbed roads how do we drive?.
10 So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. 11 “All who rage against you will surely be ashamed and disgraced; those who oppose you will be as nothing and perish. 12 Though you search for your enemies, you will not find them. Those who wage war against you will be as nothing at all. 13 For I am the Lord your God who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you.
I am glad to have found these beautiful golden words.It’s really very soothing especially when a person is struggling with one’s physical weaknesses and illness.
People who are strong in faith never sway ,even when life’s boat seems to sink but weak people are often threatened by simple waves of water.
It’s perfect time to know the value of the word of the Lord.We look for doctors only when we are ill hence it’s perfect time to gather real strength.
I have thought of negativities of today’s world and so I am weak and I am ill.The Lord has inspired me to take up the Holy book to be strengthened .Yes,my beloved ones it’s impossible to survive without the golden words .The real strength consists in thinking of the Lord and in believing in his assurance.The word became flesh to be our strength .The word became flesh to dwell among us.
Thank you very much for reading.Take care.
When Jesus saw the crowds, he went up the mountain, and after he had sat down, his disciples came to him.
He began to teach them, saying:
“Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are they who mourn, for they will be comforted.
Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the land.
Blessed are they who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be satisfied.
Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy.
Blessed are the clean of heart, for they will see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.
Blessed are they who are persecuted for the sake of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are you when they insult you and persecute you and utter every kind of evil against you (falsely) because of me.
Rejoice and be glad, for your reward will be great in heaven. ” -Mathew 5:1-12
We are really fortunate to be peace lovers because we are the branches of the Vine ‘The Prince of Peace, Jesus Christ’.
We ought to keep peace in any circumstances because we all are the representatives of the Living God.
Everyone is a unique human being hence there will be differences of opinions ,thoughts and ideologies but that is acceptable so long we love humanity.
There was a time when people had thought that having enough riches and wealth would certainly ensure a long lifespan of a human being on this earth.We have enough evidences of death of poor people across the world for lack of proper treatment but the scenario has changed .Today the survival of a human being doesn’t depend on one’s wealth and riches.
It depends totally on the grace of the Living God.The grace of the Lord means total surrender to the Lord.The grace of the Lord means living in peace and harmony.
Have you ever heard that the children of a powerful King fighting battles?No,the children of a mighty king don’t need to take up weapons because the mighty soldiers fight battle on behalf of them.
If we take up weapon to fight our enemies then we insult the all powerful God of ours.That proves we have doubt in the power of the Almighty and that very moment we cease to be children of the living God.
If we resort to violence to fight those who hate us then we prove to the world the fact that our prayers and the prayers of billions of others on this earth are useless.
Jesus didn’t fight with anyone but he only did good works for the sick and ailing yet he was hated by his own people.As disciples of Christ we come to know that we are in the right track only when we find people despising us,looking down upon us and insulting us .
So the message is Peace be with you ,Peace be with everyone because God is controlling everything and we all are children of the Mighty God .He knows well; who all are our enemies and he will certainly arrange everything to make sure that we continue to remain as the Children of God.
GRACE UPON GRACE
Share the Love
3 He got into one of the boats, the one belonging to Simon, and asked him to put out a little from shore. Then he sat down and taught the people from the boat.
4 When he had finished speaking, he said to Simon, “Put out into deep water, and let down the nets for a catch.”
5 Simon answered, “Master, we’ve worked hard all night and haven’t caught anything. But because you say so, I will let down the nets.”
6 When they had done so, they caught such a large number of fish that their nets began to break. 7 So they signaled their partners in the other boat to come and help them, and they came and filled both boats so full that they began to sink.
This passage of scripture jumped out at me, and I thought it was an amazing lesson for each of us as Christian bloggers.
Simon and the others had spent all night fishing only to be left with empty nets.
Maybe you can relate? Maybe you’ve been posting for months on end with little or no traction. Maybe it feels like nothing you have tried is working, but you feel an inkling from the Lord to try again.
To cast your net again. To Have faith and hope as you move forward with His call.
We just never know when a blog post may take off. When we’ll cast our net one last time and be left with a boat overflowing to the brim. All we can do is trust God and move forward when he tells us to cast our net once more.
Joyce Meyer says, “Hope is living with the expectation that something good could happen at any moment”.
Be hopeful each time you post that God will use your God-given words in a powerful way. Be patient as you wait on the Lord and His timing, but stay hopeful!
We also must be willing to do it His Way. When Jesus told Simon to cast his net once more, the timing was all wrong.
That wasn’t the time of day that they would normally fish. Not only had they been fishing all night only to be left with nothing, but it was now also the wrong timing.
I can just hear myself saying, “But Lord, I’ve already tried that and the timing is all wrong now.” and His gentle reply of, “Try again”.
We must be willing to forgo how the world tells us to do things and be willing to do it the way God is encouraging us to do it. Even if the timing seems all wrong and even if we’ve tried it many times before, we have to trust His way of doing things and be willing to follow His lead.
So today as you trudge forward on this great mission of sharing the gospel through blogging, may I encourage you to cast your net once more? You just never know when you’ll be surprised by a boat overflowing to the brim.
Thanks a lot laurenprezzano.com
Thanks a lot for reading.Take care.
I remember a saying of one of my senior colleagues,he used to say ‘Colleagues are not friends’.I had thought about it a lot and then I realized the real meaning of the saying .
My colleagues are always working with me but sometimes they can relax only if I work a little extra on behalf of them.That means they won’t like my relaxation or my leisure time in my work place.
In every spheres of life we have to face difficulties and struggle for the well being of our beloved ones.Usually no one fights a battle daily for an unknown person .We don’t ignore the rain the flood and natural calamities for someone whom we have not known or spoken to .
I don’t know whether you would agree with me but I have realized the fact that the longevity of my beloved ones depend on me .
If I live a disciplined life and if I follow the rules of life properly then I shall be able to live a disease free life and that’s a lovely news for my dear ones .They would enjoy a sound sleep,they would have a stress free life.
The Title seems to be a bit different I mean it’s full of negativity .To some extend it’s true but I don’t mean it that way .I would love to be cautious of such negative thoughts .
I am following more people than my followers but I don’t want to be a competitor because I am a part timer ,I don’t earn anything from my blog .I know that there are people who are trying their best to be consistent and are also trying hard to read my posts.
In the same way I have been reading the posts of so many people who doesn’t read my posts .Your niche is interesting to me that doesn’t mean my niche would also be interesting to many others .
I have a purpose for my topics and sometimes that’s very personal so I mustn’t expect everyone to be my followers.
The positive points are,we are cautious because we dont’t want to lose our beloved ones and our followers hence we love to shoulder responsibilities.
We are trying to be consistent because our good friends wait for us ,they love to see us performing well.
I am a bit disturbed hence I am not able to cover the other aspects of the Title .I shall be glad if anyone of you would spare a few minutes and bring out the other positive sides of the Title of my post today.
Thank you very much for your company .Take care .
