Yes, God needs a Partner to run His business on earth. There are plenty of vacancies. And He is waiting for us to apply for a job. In fact he comes knocking on our door offering us a job. Do we want to be partners with him. Just consider this for a moment. The creator of the universe wants to be partners with you. My advice to you, say yes and be employed for the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords and He will take care of you in ways that you have not dreamed of. Trust Him and give Him a try. I assure you that you will never be in want.
Every single human being when baptised becomes a Child of God. We call God, Our Father. God is Holy and each one of us are called by God to be Holy and to live a blameless life. God invites us to dwell in Him. Are we the baptised responding to God’s Holy Love.
Living in today’s world, I sometimes get the shivers. You might ask why? When I look around, I see people walking away from the Call of God to holiness. When I see currently what is happening in the US presidential elections – the two candidates Trump vs Hilary Clinton. These two are literally tearing each other down. It is difficult to believe that a country like the United States is unable to produce two respectable and righteous people for the presidential candidacy.
I wonder what is happening to our world. People are walking away from God and from what is right. What happened when we became Children of God? Why are people walking away from God and running to worldly pleasures – pleasures that are evil.
Let those of us who are baptised and are happy to respond to God’s call – let us sit beside Him and look into His Holiness and WORSHIP HIM. Let us pray for ourselves, our families, our friends, our communities, our country, all countries of the world that they may leave their evil ways and follow God who is Holy and Righteous. Let us pray!
Yes, Peace is flowing like a river, setting all the captives free. When we are peace with the Lord and we are basking
in God’s Glory, let us remember those who are disturbed, unhappy and who have lost all hope.
It is important for us to remember that what we receive freely, freely we must give to others. Every individual in life’s journey experience or have desert experiences. Either we feel that the absence of God in our lives, or we feel that He is silent or that He has abandoned us.
I have something important that I would like to share with you. Remember that Christ lives in us and we live in Him, so where is the question of Him being absent or silent in our lives. It is important for us to remember that He is near to us and in the silence, let us listen to His heartbeat. His heartbeat would tell us that He is near and that His peace is flowing like a river.
Christ is calling us to have faith, to have patience and more importantly to believe that He will never leave us nor forsake us. God is our Father and Jesus Christ is His Son and we are all brothers and sisters in Jesus Christ. Will a Father desert his son. Will a mother desert her baby, Yes, even if they desert, God will not abandon His children. He never does. In a family, we are sometimes silent. Does that mean that we do not love our family members. No. In like manner, if God is silent at times, just remember that He is holding you in His arms. At this time, it is important to listen to His Heartbeat and believe me, you will experience something awesome and wonderful. Silence is sometimes important………
Now, for those of us who are experiencing His nearness, we should then be agents of His Peace. We should share the Peace that is with us and allow that peace to flow out to others, to those around us, so that they would not feel abandoned or lonely but would feel the Peace of Christ in their hearts.
So my brothers and sisters of Christ Jesus, be His Agents of Peace – Take Christ’s peace to those who are struggling to find Peace.
LET US PRAY FOR ONE ANOTHER THAT THE PEACE OF CHRIST WHO DWELLS IN OUR HEARTS WOULD FLOW OUT TO OTHERS TO SET THEM FREE.
It is important to first of all to ask God to give us a gift of prayer. For, to long to pray is to be in love with your God
To pray is to come into the presence of God. If only we could imagine what it means to come into God’s Presence. For God to want us to come into His Presence is such a great invitation. It is a great privilege. Well, God’s love for us is so great that His Love for us, draws us to Himself. His Love is magnetic and it continually draws us to Himself.
It is when we surrender to Him, that we develop a longing and a thirst to be in His Presence. So, God is asking us to totally surrender to him.
Now, each one of us have the KEY to enter into God’s Presence and the KEY is Surrender. When we surrender to Him, He then takes us into His Presence and gradually makes us pure and holy.

I remember when I was in the 7th grade, I very nearly drowned. A big wave was taking me out to sea and I had a fear that I was drowning. I spoke to God, then. I said, “Lord, I am not ready to come home as yet. I haven’t even begun life as yet.” I thought that I would die, but the Our Lord Jesus Christ answered my prayer. Another big wave brought me back to shore and I was so thankful that I was alive but the amount of sea water that drank as so much that water was coming out through my nose, ears and mouth. But I was alive.
So my dear friends, if you feel the waves of life is drowning you, cry out to Jesus Christ and He will help you. Jesus Christ is THE ANSWER TO ALL MY PROBLEMS AND DIFFICULTIES and YES, HE IS THE ANSWER TO ALL YOUR PROBLEMS AND DIFFICULTIES AS WELL.
So, be strong and brave and known that Jesus Christ is near you always.
New International Version
Mt 6:33. “But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well”.
What does this mean? ◄ Isaiah 64:6 ► “But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away”.
If we do consider ourselves to be righteous, we definitely cannot compare with God. We are sinful and God is perfect without sin. God created us to be perfect but we are not. So what can we do? We are all called to be perfect – we need to be single eyed – Have our gaze on Jesus Christ.
It is a command of God for us to seek Him first. He is and must be our number One. When He is our Number One,
- We will love him and follow His Commandments.
- We will try to please Him in every way, instead of waiting for Him to please us
in every way.
- We will be ready to make sacrifices and to put our desires last.
- We would be eager to study God’s word and to be obedient.
- We will be ready to walk the straight and narrow path instead of walking the
- We will live to love Jesus Christ and to follow Him who is our Lord and Master.
- We will love God First and we will love our neighbour as ourselves.
- We must die to ourselves and have self control.It is important to live one day at a time – living for Christ Jesus alone. Every day, it is important to pray for grace to live a pure and holy life.
I was just browsing through my previous post in Word Press and I decided to publish this again today. I did
feel quite emotional viewing this.
In honour of Our Heroes.
During this Lenten Season, I was not feeling quite well. What I have discovered is, for one to pray deeply, to get into the presence of God, one needs a lot of energy. So, when I am feeling a bit weak, I avoid praying the Stations of the Cross. For me to pray the Stations of the Cross is to go into time. It is to be present during the actual crucifixion of Jesus Christ. It is to really and truly be with Jesus as he journeys towards his death. It is a very emotional experience and when I am feeling a bit weak, I simply cannot pray the Stations of the Cross.
What is prayer? Prayer is communicating with God. Is coming into his presence. So when I pray the Stations of the Cross, I come into his presence, into his suffering and it really exhausts me.
So my dear brothers and sisters, what I am trying to say to you is whenever you pray, whatever be the prayer, go into the PRESENCE OF GOD for it is very real. If you have enough energy to say a small prayer, then say it as if you were in the PRESENCE OF GOD. True prayer is being transported into the real PRESENCE OF GOD. Many people keep rambling on and on. They just pray with their lips. God is calling us to pray with our heart and with all our strength.
I am going to pray the Stations of the Cross this Good Friday and I will put all my energy into journeying with Jesus to Calvary. I know that it will be exhausting but it will be rewarding. For whenever, I come into the PRESENCE OF GOD which ofcourse is everyday, I receive tremendous blessings.
So my dear brothers and sisters, let us JOURNEY WITH JESUS to CALVARY THIS GOOD FRIDAY.
The Word of God guides us and teaches us Shows us the path that God wants us to take. We need to pray and discern God’s Holy Will. Sometimes, we might think that what we are doing is what God wants us to do. It is important for each of the faithful to sit quietly at the Feet of Jesus. Sit before the Blessed Sacrament, spend some quiet time with Him every day. When you learn to sit quietly at His Feet, Read the Word of God, you will find that Jesus Christ will speak to you through His Words. God speaks to us through Scripture and it is extremely important for us to meditate on His Word. Become One with Him through His Word and through the Presence of the Blessed Sacrament and you can be sure that the Holy Spirit of God will lead you.
