"Brothers and sisters, fill your minds with whatever is good and true, whatever is pure, whatever is noble and right, whatever is lovely, whatever is honorable and admirable, if anything is excellent or praiseworthy, think about such things. Put them into practice, and God -who gives us peace- will be with you." (Philippians 4:8)

"Thanks for the Gift: I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." (Philippians 4:13)

We must train our minds to think upon these positive and peaceful things. We must keep our minds protected, because the devil could take advantage of those vulnerable ones.

Life is Not a Bed of Roses, but rather a Bed of Thorns.

"Life is Not a Bed of Roses, but rather a Bed of Thorns."

My lifetime has not been a bed of roses, but rather a bed of thorns. Many things happened in my life that made me stumble and fall. Yet Jesus rescued me. When I am going inside my heart, I discover that there haven't been anything more painful in this world compared to the suffering that Jesus endured during His time. Our dear Lord, Jesus Christ preached the word of God. He was an innocent man, although He was condemn to be crucified on the cross for no crime at all. It was a cruel injustice!! Jesus died on the cross to pay the penalty for our sins. He died for us, so that we may live an eternal life. Why don't we live for Jesus!! He was tortured, whipped, deceived, mocked, betrayed, shattered, insulted, crashed, beaten, nailed to the cross, crucified, forsaken...

We should stop complaining at little things that surround our world today, put a halt to shallow pretenses, and begin to unfold our true inner values. I believe in a BROTHERHOOD OF CHRISTIANS IN ACTION. Instead of talking nonsense and doing silly things, we must prepare for a spiritual battle to win over evil doers, evil spirits which dwell everywhere trying to steal and destroy God's wondrous creations. Call Jesus' Holy Name, and do good deeds in the Name of Jesus. The Rapture is round the corner. The tribulations will start. Then, the Lord Jesus is soon coming back. I am ready. I just can't wait to see my dear Lord, Jesus Christ.

Are you ready for that important and relevant event to happen?? I wonder...

The Lord has been the fountain of my inspirations, my vessel, my vineyard of life, and my golden retreat in Heaven.

Today's Bible Readings: (John 19) "Jesus is sentenced to death." "Pilate took Jesus and had Him whipped. The soldiers made a crown out of thorny branches and put it on His head; then put a purple robe on Him..." "Then, Jesus is crucified..."

(Isaiah 53: 4-6) "He endured the suffering that should have been ours, the pain that we should have borne. All the while we thought that His suffering was punishment by God. But because of our sins He was wounded, beaten because of the evil we did. We are healed by the punishment He suffered, made whole by the blows He received. All of us were like sheep that were lost, each of us going his own way. But the Lord made the punishment fall on Him, the punishment that all of us deserved." These are the words of the Lord in the Scriptures. AMEN.

The Lord has been the fountain of my inspirations, my vessel, my vineyard of life, and my golden retreat in Heaven. Jesus died for us. Why don't we live for Him!!...

"Only You, Lord. You are my only Lord, Jesus"

"Only You, Lord. You are my only Lord, Jesus"

The weight of sins is too heavy to carry alone. That kind of weight has made my cross even heavier when I think about it. My Lord was willing to sustain me, to help me carry the burden of my heavy loads. Looking back, I recall old memories of the rainbow bridge which was not too far from my own view point. I desperately wanted to cross the bridge to release the burden of my own cross, so that I could be free at last. How selfish I have been thinking only in myself!! Jesus was a giver rather than a taker. You see, Jesus gave His own life as a living sacrifice to save the world from sins. Yet, many people nowadays are too worried to fulfill their feeble mortal flesh, the material appetite for material things, instead of nourishing their spirit with spiritual food and water for the soul. The spirit needs to be fed with rich nutrients, vitamins for the soul.
Just look at Jesus' eyes... What do you see there?? Jesus suffered a great deal for us, His ultimate sacrifice was the best evidence of His unconditional love for human mankind. I wrote a prayer-poem long ago. It tells about one of my conversations with the Lord. I wish to share this inspirational prayer-poem with you this day. I called it:

"Only You, Lord!!"

What is it Lord, that has made You pause and consider me?...

What have I got to make You look at me?...

What is it, my Lord, that makes You spend all Winter nights

In my bosom covered by dew?...

It was only You, who saved my vessels from bleeding to death;

Only You, who led me to days of rest,

And prepared my empty table with plenty of food and bread;

It was only You, who rescued me from the cold,

Gave me a blanket to hold, and kept me warm in the storm.

Shred of clouds like visible vineyards

Are painted in the evening sky.

The scent of rain reminds me of tears I've shed.

Scared like a lamb to the slaughter, I once felt.

Only You, Lord saved me, and to safety, I was led.

Why did You save me? I wonder. Am I worthy to You?...

What will I give You -for Your goodness- in return?...

Oh, my sweet Lord! I shall give You all my life,

And all my love like a flame that it'll always burn.

Today's Thought: "Improve One Little Corner at a Time."

Today's Thought: "Improve One Little Corner at a Time."

I have shared this inspirational thought in my other blogs, for it is so good...

When God leads you to the edge of the cliff, trust Him and let it go. Only one of two things will happen, either He'll catch you when you fall, or He will teach you how to fly. There is an old saying: "If harsh situations don't kill you, they will make you stronger." God is going to shift things around you, and let things work in your favour. However, don't ask God to lead your way, if you are not willing to move your footsteps.

One little corner, one little inch that you can improve each day, go ahead, and make that difference. Something wonderful will happen: The feeling and experience of reaching a goal and achievement. To achieve great goals, great things require a modest effort repeated again and again. One little corner, one little step, one little inch after another at a time could make a major impact: The wondrous miracle of your life. Start right now, by improving one little corner, and you are on your way to change the world, to transform your own world for the better. Try it!! You have nothing to lose, but lots to win. God's love is everwhere!! If we take the time to look around us, we'll see marvelous wonders such as birds, flowers, mother nature, and so on. We don't have to look far to see the miracles of life. God's clothes, the grass of the field... Let life come to you with its full power!! The richness of life is all around you. Drop your shallow pretenses, and find in the Angels of God's whispers good news after all.

There is new wisdom for you to discover. Dive into your deepest feelings. The message is surely filled with rich meaning to teach you, for instance a dance of profound proportions, the power to change yourself for the better. Observe, study and explore all that is happening in your world. God is your Savior, and the source of your existence. You... lovingly watch the motion, listen to the music of your heart, and take note of how it makes you feel. Let life work its magic on you!! Have you ever thought about this?? I wonder...

You see, all is well on this day, with this moment, in this place. Do whatever you do and experience whatever you need to experience. Let go of the need to place judgment on how things are. Do not judge! Choose instead, to feel immensely and sincerely thankful for all that is, whatever it may be. Peacefully accept the wholeness of this moment, and you'll gain access to the fullness of its value. Choose to make full use of the unique opportunity that presents itself to you right now. Simply allow yourself to easily and peacefully do what you have chosen to do. Let your thoughts and actions be a source of inspiration, positive focus and positive thoughts. See the troubles, frustrations and disappointments as the opportunities they are to give you LESSONS OF LIFE. Know that you are fully capable of finding the goodness and true lasting value in every situation. Feel the limitless power of your own awareness and the priceless miracle of your own being. Be at peace with it, and let life's goodness flow like a stream!!

God's richest blessings may always abound in your life!!
