Spring forth tender!

Spring forth tender!

Faith in the time of darkness.jpg

In times of darkness, when all the clouds loom and block all light,
When the deep dampness disdain, dissatisfaction overwhelms you,
When your best efforts meet with a dry hard wall,
When you moon decides to hide from you with all its little stars,
When the sailor in you can’t decide which way to go,
Seek the Lord, Seek your father, seek your creator,
For he will bring light upon your head, clarity to your mind,
Blessing to your troubled times,
Happiness to your sorrow, warmth to your body,
He will feed you the best of things,
Admonish your enemies, cast away the demons,
Calm the seas, bring wind to your sails,
When you look on to him, seek his guidance,
He will command his angels to clear your path to
To satisfy the desolate and waste ground;
And to cause the bud of the tender herb to spring forth.

 

ఆ వసంతం

ఆ వసంతం

చీకటి కాలంలో, అన్ని మేఘాలు కాంతికిరణాలను దాచేస్తే,
లోతైన చెమ్మ, అసంతృప్తి మిమ్మును అధిగమించినప్పుడు,
మీ చేసే ప్రయత్నాలు అన్నిటికీ అడ్డుగోడ తగిలినప్పుడు,
వెలుగునిచ్చే చంద్ర నక్షత్రాలు మీరు నుండి దాక్కుంటే,
మీ నావ ఎటువెళ్ళాలో మార్గం తేలిక నిలబడిపోతే,
మీ దేవుణ్ని జ్ఞాపకం చేసుకో, నీ తండ్రిని, నీ సృష్టికర్త, నీ ప్రభువు
ఇంకా నిన్ను వెదకుచున్నారని, నిన్ను ప్రేమిస్తున్నాడని,
అతను ని శిరస్సు మీదకి కాంతి తెచ్చి, నీ మనస్సుకు స్పష్టత,
నీ మనస్సుకు ప్రశాంతత, నీ బాధను ఆనందంగా
నీ ప్రార్ధన విని, నీ స్తుతులను, నీ కన్నీటిని చూసి
నీ శత్రువులు మందలించి, నీ అడ్డంకులను పడదోసి
పొంగుతున్న సముద ఉధృతిని తగ్గించి, నీ తెరచాపలో గాలి నింపి,
నువ్వు చూపే విశ్వాసాన్ని, నమ్మకాన్ని ఆదరించి
నీకు ఇరుకుల్లో విశాలత కలుగచేసి
నీకు తన మార్గదర్శకత్వాన్ని ఇచ్చి
అతను మీ మార్గం సుగమనం అవ్వాలని దూతలను ఆదేశించి
ఎండిన ఎడారిలో మంచు కురిపించి, పాడైన చోట,
ఒక క్రొత్త సంతోషాన్ని కలిగిస్తాడు
అందుకే ఆయన వైపే చూడు
ఏకాంతంలో అయన కోసం కనిపెట్టు
క్రీస్తే ఆ వసంతం
యేసే నీలోని నూతన సృష్ఠి

We serve a mighty God. A god who is the alpha and omega, the beginning and the end and he is the complete one. We all need to learn from the life of Jesus and walk in his footsteps serving the wishes of the father and learn to be obedient to be able to match to become one with the Christ.

Let us prepare our hearts even as we prepare to meet him on the last day. Let us pray that like Paul in the Book of Second Timothy 4 v.7- 8 we can say, “ I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, and I have kept the faith. Henceforth is laid for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge shall give me at that day: and not to me but unto all them also that love his appearing”. We are blessed to be given a chance to fight for him, live for him and be his children.

Thank you father for choosing us and giving us this wonderful opportunity to know you, worship you and be in your gracious presence. Thank you father for sending your son and our savior Jesus to us and presenting us with an opportunity to be your children. Thank you for being zealous god and giving us your exclusive attention.

Your blessing

Y.jpg

There are many blessings in the Bible and all of them are given to all the believers in the world before us, to us and to our future generations. The promise is the same but the blessing is for you to claim. Even though every blessing given to us is given freely by God’s grace and is ours, we are to lay hold of them, through our faith and confession.

claim your blessing.JPG

The promise comes with only one condition, you be faithful to the Lord and claim it in Jesus name and it is yours. Your blessing is what God would give you for your faith and it can be entirely different from mine. In the walk of faith Peter managed to walk on water with the Lord while others saw Jesus walk towards them. To each his own faith and to each his own blessing.

David couldn’t possibly win with his own might and prowess in the battlefield against Goliath but he could easily win over the entire Philistine army with the might of the God and that is his blessing to claim. When we pray as Christians, if our prayer is raced with requests to do this and that, then there is no charm in that and it can get boring for us too. Pray to claim your blessing in the Lord and be useful to him and many people.

X for Xmas

X.jpg

The known universe is expected to be a very small bit of the total universe and in this small known universe a very tiny part is help by our small solar system. Earth would have been really insignificant but for the human civilization and our intelligence and the fact that we are here on this planet is itself a miracle. Now consider this. There are millions and millions of comets and other debris floating around in the universe and the fact that Earth manages to swim around all these through the cosmos without any mishap is amazing.

In this whole chaotic universe you and I exist and God chose to spend his energy and attention on us. What is man to bother the almighty and the everlasting God who created all this universe and more with a mere breath? There must be some amazing reason why the Lord God is looking at you and me tonight and that is because you fit into his plan. This also means that you are very important and God loves you so much and has a specific plan for you.

The everlasting God is calling you his son and daughter and has sacrificed his only Son, the prince of peace, the wonderful counselor and the king of kings for your salvation and mine. This is simply beautiful. You matter to God. His attention is on you and you can be sure of that. Let us all thank the Lord for this gift we don’t deserve, this love we cannot repay back and this grace that we are lucky to have. Thank you Prince of peace for this Xmas.

Walking With Christ

W.jpg

One of my favorite hymns which helped me overcome many dark days is when we walk with the Lord and the hymn is also one of the main inspirations for this blog. I want to share it with you and here it is.

long way t3i photography.jpg

When we walk with the Lord in the light of his Word
What a glory he sheds on our way!
While we do his good will, he abides with us still,
And with all who will trust and obey.

Trust and obey, for there’s no other way
To be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey.

Not a shadow can rise, not a cloud in the skies,
But his smile quickly drives it away;
Not a doubt or a fear, not a sigh nor a tear,
Can abide while we trust and obey.

Not a burden we bear, not a sorrow we share,
But our toil he doth richly repay;
Not a grief nor a loss, not a frown or a cross,
But is blest if we trust and obey.

But we never can prove the delights of his love
Until all on the altar we lay;
For the favor he shows, and the joy he bestows,
Are for them who will trust and obey.

Then in fellowship sweet we will sit at his feet,
Or we will walk by his side in the way;
What he says we will do, where he sends we will go,
Never fear, only trust and obey.
