See The World Through My Eyes

Why do I love reading? Books? Blogs? News paper? Online Articles? Not only because I Love to learn, not only because I enjoy it, the more I read, the more I realize there's still a lot to learn. My blog reading experiences have been the best to date, I've seen the world through so many eyes, felt through so many hearts, indescribable feeling is finding out how special and Unique each and every person is, and learning not only to accept, but be comfortable and even like the differences. 
Trust me, if there's anything worth learning about, it's about human being. Sometimes writing is the best way we find to express ourselves, this is exactly what I look forward to do on following post's. I hope you are comfortable with seeing this world through my eyes when you click on this page.

Believe before you see

"Now Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." Hebrews 11:1

A Rich Christian had a large company of employees, and many of them owed him money. He was constantly trying to teach them something about Christianity, and one day he hit upon a plan. He posted a notice for his employees to see that said, “All those who will come to my office between eleven and twelve o’clock on Thursday morning to present and honest statement of their debts will have them cancelled at once.” The debtors read the notice with great deal of scepticism, and complained about their employer, and ridiculed the notice he had posted. They said it didn’t make sense.
But finally, at 11:45, one man jumped forward, dashed up the steps into the office, and presented his statement. “Why are you here?” the rich man asked him. “Because you promised to cancel the debts of all those who would come as you instructed,” the other replied. “And do you believe the promise?” “Yes, I do.” “Why do you believe it?” Persisted the employer. “Because, although it was too much for me to understand, i know that you are a good man who would not deceive anyone.” The rich man took the bill and marked it “Paid in full,” at which time the poor man, overcome, cried out, “I knew it! I told them so! They said it couldn’t be true, and now I’m going out to show them.” “Wait,” said the benefactor, “it’s not quite twelve o’clock. The others are not entitled to any special proof of my sincerity.” When the clock struck twelve, the forgiven debtor run out waving his receipt in the face of his fellows. With a mad rush they made for the door, but it was too late. The door was locked.

"...Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed" John 20:29

Remaining on the Vine

“Remain in Me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruits by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in Me. I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain Me, and I in you, you will bear much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing” John 15: 4-5

It is as simple as this; we should hold on to Jesus, our relationship with God should be our top priority, if we want to not only succeed, but be fulfilled in our lives.
People often think they have it all set up and there is no way they are going to fail, that they have the best plan ever and with the effort they are willing to put on it, there is no way they can fail, Plus God is going to work in their favour (as if God has to follow their plans and not the other way round). I’m a good example of that, I don’t have to say many of my plans did not succeed, at the very first knock down I realised I had to rearrange my plans and that meant painfully starting from the beginning, or succumb to living a mediocre life forever, of course I chose a painful new start, living a Mediocre life has never been and will never be considered an option. Questions like how Non-believers are succeeding my be brought up, it has come to my mind several times before, sometimes brought by mocking unbelievers that wanted to shove my Faith down the discharging pipe. If you work hard you are more likely and close to achieve your goals, to succeed, but if you hold on to the Lord you are more likely to have a Fulfilled life, not only succeed but bring peace and joy along with it.
A Tree (fruit tree), can be beautiful, big, strong, leafy, branchy, thick etc... But the real tasty side of it is on its fruit. Life far from the Lord is just like a tree without fruits, and if it gives Fruits, they are tasteless if not sour.

"The soul hardly ever realizes it, but whether he is a believer or not, his loneliness is really a homesickness for God." H. Zeller

A student came to his teacher with a problem:

-I came here, professor, because I feel so small, that I am powerless to do anything. They say I'm good for nothing, I do not do anything right, I'm very slow and stupid. How can I improve?

-What can I do to value myself more?

The teacher without looking at him, said:

-Sorry young man, but now I can’t help, I must first solve my own problem. Maybe later and pausing said:

-If you help me, I can solve my problem more quickly and then maybe i can help you solve yours.

-Of course, the young man stammered, but felt devalued again.

The teacher pulled out a ring that he used in His little finger, gave the boy and said:

-Ride the horse and go to market. You should sell this ring because I have to pay a debt.

-We must get for the ring as much as possible, but do not accept less than a gold coin. Go and come back with the money as soon as possible.

The young man took the ring and left.

Barely reached the market and began to offer the ring to the merchants.

They looked with some interest, till the young man told them how much the ring cost.

When the young man mentioned a gold coin, some people laughed, others would leave without even looking at it, but only one old man was kind enough to explain that a gold coin was too valuable to buy a ring.

When the young man mentioned a gold coin, some laughed, others would leave without even looking at it, but only one old man was kind enough to explain that a gold coin was too valuable to buy a ring.

Trying to help the young man, he offered a silver coin and a cup of copper, but the young man followed the instructions to not accept less than a gold coin and refused the offers.

After offering the jewellery to everyone passing by the market and depressed by failure,he rode his horse and returned. The young man wanted to have a gold coin so that he could buy the ring, thus ending the concern of his teacher and so he could receive his help and advice.

He entered the house and said:

-Professor, I'm sorry, but it is impossible to get what you asked. Perhaps you could get 2 or 3 pieces of silver, but do not think you can fool anyone about the value of the ring.

-Important what you said young man, he replied smiling. We have to know the value of the ring first. Get back on your horse and go to the jeweller. Who better to know the exact value of the ring? Say you want to sell the ring and ask how much he gives for it. But no matter how much He offers, do not sell it. Come back with my ring.

The young man went to the jeweller and gave him the ring to examine. The jeweller looked at the ring with a loop, weighed the ring and said:

- Tell your teacher that if he wants to sell now, I cannot get more than 58 gold coins for the ring.

- 58 GOLD COINS! The Young man cried.

- Yes, replied the jeweller, I know that with time I could offer about 70 coins, but if the sale is urgent...
The young man went home excited to tell the teacher what happened...

- Sit, said the teacher, and after hearing all that the young man told him, said:

-You are like this ring, valuable and unique jewellery. It can only be evaluated by a specialist. Did you think that anyone could discover your true value?

And saying it put the ring on his finger again.

We are all like this gem. Valuable and unique and walk across all markets of life expecting that inexperienced people value us and see our worth.
Let God evaluate you and tell you your real value.

Are we really Gods children?

Many are the times that I sense the need of a complete spiritual overhaul, amid such spiritual backwater, one can only strive with all strength in order to keep ones relationship with God afloat.

Henceforth, the need for a few pointers to vanquish this spiritual squalor.

1. Deny yourself daily

2. Carry your cross

3. Follow Jesus (and not vise versa)

Are ready to practice this?

Salvation depends on it!
