House of Prayer

The bobbing little heads are so thankful to see me this morning. They’re grateful for the seed I throw their way. It is amazing they know it’s safe to fly out of the trees and eat, so long as I am there. Perhaps I am… a house of prayer for all my feathered fowl.

In my house of prayer, my humbled heart guides my conscience. I cannot list the blessed gifts God sent my wife and me in our short few years of marriage. But many people are not so fortunate…

Some families lost their finances, especially over the past few weeks. Others gambled their money, and even life savings, instead of reading the laws of God. In a Christian’s house of prayer, the Bible dictates this distinction:

Many abodes are filled with “prized possessions” from floor to ceiling. We can witness this sad condition on TV, such as “Hoarding: Buried Alive” and even “American Pickers.” Or, shoppers fill their carts with unnecessary items after each paycheck to fill a void in their heart. I must ask, “How can you love two Gods if you are a true Christian?” This ill-fated, psychological condition promotes money and the love of physical items. In this house of prayer, the Bible states:

We can easily find the standard salary of clergymen on the internet. It is far below the national average income. But some televangelists, who I call “false prophets,” steal from the poor to live in their dynasty. They build multi-million dollar lifestyles, believing they can buy into heaven’s gates. In their masonry house of prayer, the frigid winds blow through the cracks and crevices.

So, what kind of house of prayer is your residence? Is your home blessed, or does Satan appear to send signals of acceptable sin? If Jesus walked in your house today, would He feel the warmth of love and graciousness? Could He easily place His hands on your Bible?

Just like the little feeding birds, they eat only enough to fill their bodies. They, too, come to me for comfort. We should turn to God for life’s blessings. Share your bread, for it is His will you are supplied with His love, including the little birds that feed in your backyard.

I pray your life and home is a sanctuary, filled with God’s blessings and love. Be content with your basic needs being met and avoid materialism. It is only the flesh that yearns for the security of money. Our wealth belongs to God – and it’s a gift. Make Him first in your life. Only faith, prayer, and your walk in the light of God will bring you to His house of prayer.

Goodbye 2019

Last night I told my mom. when she said she was grateful 2019 was almost over, there were good things which happened in 2019.

Be grateful for the good things in 2019 and leave behind the rest.

I say again: BE GRATEFUL FOR THE GOOD THINGS IN 2019 AND LEAVE THE REST BEHIND.

Going further, be grateful for the lessons learned from the bad things that happened in 2019.

Overall, move in 2020 with a grateful heart. Forgive the events, people, and perhaps most importantly, yourself. Gratitude for the what was and gratitude for what will be. This is the best way to progress into the next decade.

I end with my favorite Scripture. Philippians 4:4-9:

Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!

Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near.

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.

And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable–if anything is excellent or praiseworthy–think about such things.

Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me–put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.

Another wasted day & part of your life!

According to me ( based on present day life style ) you are wasting part of your life if you are doing these things.

  1. You are always on phone,texting or browsing while at dinner or in the rest room,even during meetings.
  2. 90% of the day you are always complaining,be your job,love affair,family,friends and my list can be never ending.
  3. You believe in ‘Fairy tales’,which exists in movies and stories.
  4. You are stuck with past.You continue to regret your past and forget to move on and look for change in your life pattern
  5. You give least importance to maintaining your health,be food habits or exercises.
  6. You do not plan.
  7. You watch tv or pornography or play video games all the time.
  8. you have addictions like alcohol,drugs or smoking.
  9. You go on grumbling about your hurt feelings.
  10. you are busy gossiping and lying almost all the time.
  11. You are judging all the time someones way of life. ( Irony here !….this includes me here because I am making a list based on my thinking that you are wasting your day and life ! )

“A great chunk of our lives is wasted on thoughts that bring nothing. We all think about something but, in the end, we only close the day thinking a lot and doing nothing but little.”
Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

Overthinking

Overthinking

“We are dying from over thinking. We are slowly killing ourselves by thinking about everything. Think. Think. Think. You can never trust the human mind anyway. It’s a death” Anthony Hopkins

Over thinking is exactly what it means,thinking too much.

11 quotes to remember when you over think:

1. You will never be free until you free yourself from the prison of your own false thoughts.

2. Before you talk, listen. Before you react, think. Before you criticize, wait. Before you pray, forgive. Before you quit, try!

3. Stop worrying about what can go wrong, and get excited about what can go right.

4. Overthinking – the art of creating problems that weren’t even there.

5. There is nothing in this world that can trouble you as much as your own thoughts.

6. Worrying is like sitting in a rocking chair. It gives you something to do but it doesn’t get you anywhere.

7. Stop overthinking. You can’t control everything, just let it be.

8. Dear mind, please stop thinking so much at night. I need sleep.

9. Overthinking is the biggest cause of unhappiness.

10.Don’t ruin a new day by thinking about yesterday. Let it go.

11.A quiet mind is able to hear intuition over fear.

Can you escape from overthinking ?

My feeling is that you can not escape from overthinking.but you can bring down the stress level by having a positive attitude,trying to recollect the above 11 quotes.

Thank you

Be Bold..Be Strong – it doesn’t matter whether Man or Woman !!

If you want to be the Queen of your husband’s house, let him be the King.

Don’t raise your daughters like your sons. Womanhood has it’s own beauty.

If you are the princess of your father, your man is also the prince of his parents. So don’t expect him to tolerate all your stupidities.

Be Bold..Be Strong – it doesn’t matter whether Man or Woman !!

Work hard, lift weight, do your tasks alone, gain knowledge about more and more fields, walk alone with confidence and push your limits. Don’t beg for the equality, establish it.

It’s not always the men’s duty to leave seat for a senior citizen. As a woman too, you can give your seat to a senior citizen;

If you can tolerate menstruation and pregnancy then traveling uncomfortably in a crowded public transport becomes a very minute problem.

Don’t create a hell for other women around you. Love your mother-in-law and treat your daughters-in-law like your own daughters.

Don’t label a woman with simple clothes as ‘behenji’. Western clothes don’t make you superior.

If wearing shorts is a choice then wearing Burqa/Saree/Hijab/Salwar suit can also be a choice.. Stop judging others by looking at their appearance.

You are strong enough to hold your bags and walk in a sunny day. Don’t behave like a touch-me-not.

If you can earn money then you can spend it too. Don’t depend on your husband or boyfriend to pay all your bills. He is not an ATM.

Your knowledge of brands doesn’t make you modern, but your education does.

Fair skin is not a privilege but the intellect is.

Rather than being a wife of some rich man, you can be a sportsperson, a writer, a doctor, an engineer, businesswoman and what not!

💖

Boldness is more beautiful than the beauty… So be strong, be bold ….it doesn’t matter whether you are a Man or  a Woman 

“Eat your food like your medicines or else you will eat your medicines like food”.

When diet is wrong,Medicine is of no use .When Diet is correct, there is no need of Medicine.

Ayurveda Proverb

But sadly, many times we love to over eat, eat wrong food,and express lack of time for daily exercises. Many other  excuses are readily available.

Some of my friends who are diabetic,regularly eat sweets ( which is forbidden),and they come up with statements saying that their sugar is under control since they take their diabetic medicines regularly ,as if the diabetic medicines give them the license to over eat the sweets.

Some other friends with Hypertension ( High blood Pressure ) eat food rich in salt, like pickles,salt laced chips etc.( salt is restricted for hypertensive patients).

They happily tell me that they are care free since medicines they take to control the BP, will also take care of their salt in the food.

What is your type ? Do You eat food and medicine also like my friends ?

If you ask me, yes,I find many times difficult to resist the food,over eat some times and take pancreatic enzyme tablets for better digestion,whenever I felt I overindulged.

What are your thoughts on this subject ?

Thank you

May 31 st World ‘No-Tobacco Day’

No tobacco day

Every year, on May 31, WHO and partners around the world celebrate World No-Tobacco Day, dedicated to highlight the health risks associated with the consumption of tobacco and promote effective policies to reduce consumption.

The tobacco epidemic is one of the biggest public health threats the world has ever faced, killing more than 7 million people a year. More than 6 million of those deaths are the result of direct tobacco use while around 890 000 are the result of non-smokers being exposed to second-hand smoke.

No tobacco day

As you notice,all the three person are enjoying smoking,and on the left side one can see the notice stuck ( local language ), ironically telling that the area is prohibited from smoking and offenders will be punished !!

Time for some humor

“I know that every cigarette I smoke takes five minutes off my life, but it takes ten minutes to smoke it… that’s a five-minute net gain!”    Ed Byrne

“Giving up smoking is the easiest thing in the world.I know because I’ve done it thousands of times”      Mark Twain

“Whenever I think of quit smoking…..I need a cigarette to
think …..!!!”   quote-flickr,com

Struggle

Life is all about struggle.

You never live without struggle.

Life begins with a struggle.

Life ends with a struggle.

Struggle is the part of our life.

A mother struggles to give birth to her child.

Every living creature struggles for survival.

Struggle is the rule of life.

If you struggle to get something today,

Tomorrow or in your near future, you’ll receive your grand rewards.

Don’t scare to struggle.

Enjoy your struggle and hug it like your true pal.

Your grand success and victory is always waiting for you.
