Unload From Your Head To God's Hand

The Lady And The Basket

"Do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself." (Matthew 6:34, NIV).

A funny story tells about an old lady who was living in the village. She had never owned nor even been in a car before. One day, she was returning home from the market carrying a big heavy basket on her head, when a rich man riding his car passed by. Kindly, he offered to drive the lady to her home. She thanked him and got into the car with her basket.

On the way, the man glanced at the lady in the mirror, still holding her basket over her head. Astonished, he asked her to lay the basket down in the car and rest.

The old lady naively replied, "Oh my son, your car is carrying me; this is enough, I should not burden it carrying my basket too!"

What an innocently funny response! We sometimes do the same with God. Everyday, God carries us during the day. Still, we insist on carrying our heavy baskets of worries and fear of the future, for family, kids, spouse, money, job, etc...

We are carried by Almighty Hands, watched over by Sleepless Eyes and God plans our future. Let us then relax and lay down everything in God's Hands. The old lady, if she agreed to lay down the basket, would have to carry it again when back home. But the beautiful thing about God is that once we cast our heavy basket in His Hands, we do not need to think about it anymore.

So do not worry, trust in our Heavenly Father instead, for "Blessed is the man who trusts in the lord, whose confidence is in him. He will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in the year of drought and never fails to bear fruit." (Jeremiah 17:7-8).

Now my dear friends, Brothers and Sisters, have a blessed time ahead - free of all "baskets." Amen. Amen!

With My Love & Prayers,

Apostle Abraham Israel

A Poem Written For The Weekend

A Weekend ReflectionPoem By Abraham Israel

A week has passed by,
Each day with grace and mercy;
Ever abounding with love and care,
The friendship of friends who sincerely dare to bear.

A family you have put me,
Not by my choice but Thine;
Such a sweet love for the problems I give,
The fellowship and care is Thine I see in them all.

A future so secure in Thee I see,
None so loving like You I met; 
Seeing the world I see the Glory of You Divine,
None so gentle but Thee I find, and praise You for all my breathe.

A thank you for the friends and foes alike,
In friends I trust and in foes I grow like You;
Eager to find You more because of seeing You in home,
Sweet home of a father and mother who taught about you alone.

A week has passed by,
My heart full of thanks and praise;
For all the graces of friendship and fellowship,
To thy Son alone be all the Glory, in Christ Jesus alone my faith be!

The Power Of A Honest Prayer

A Prayer That Shook The Senate

Åρ☺ṧ☂◎ℓї¢ ℐᾔ﹩℘ḯґαт☤☺η :

NOTE: [The United States Congress is the bicameral legislature of the federal government of the United States consisting of two chambers: the Senate and the House of Representatives. The Congress meets in the United States Capitol in Washington, D.C. ... Congress has 535 voting members: 435 Representatives and 100 Senators.]

This interesting prayer was given in Kansas, USA, at the opening session of their Senate. It seems prayer still upsets some people.

When Minister Joe Wright was asked to open the new session of the Kansas Senate, everyone was expecting the usual generalities, but this is what they heard:

"Heavenly Father, we come before you today to ask your forgiveness and to seek your direction and guidance. We know Your Word says: "Woe to those who call evil good", but that is exactly what we have done.

* We have lost our spiritual equilibrium and reversed our values.

* We have ridiculed the absolute truth of Your Word and called it Pluralism.

* We have worshipped other gods and called it multiculturalism.

* We have endorsed perversion and called it alternative lifestyle.

* We have exploited the poor and called it the lottery.

* We have rewarded laziness and called it welfare.

* We have killed our unborn and called it choice.

* We have shot abortionists and called it justifiable.

* We have neglected to discipline our children and called it building self-esteem.

* We have abused power and called it politics.

* We have embezzled public funds and called it essential expenses.

* We have institutionalized bribery and called it sweets of office.

* We have coveted our neighbor's possessions and called it ambition.

*We have polluted the air with profanity and pornography and called it freedom of expression.

* We have ridiculed the time-honored values of our forefathers and called it enlightenment.

Search us, Oh GOD, and know our hearts today; cleanse us from every sin and set us free. Amen!" The response was immediate. A number of legislators walked out during the prayer in protest. In 6 short weeks, Central Christian Church, where Rev. Wright is pastor, logged more than 5,000 phone calls with only 47 of those calls responding negatively.

The church is now receiving international requests for copies of this prayer from India, Africa and Korea.
With the LORD'S help, may this prayer sweep over our nation and WHOLEHEARTEDLY become our desire so that we again can be called "ONE NATION UNDER GOD."

Think about this: If you forward this prayer to everyone on your list, in less than 30 days it would be heard by the world. How many people on your list will not receive this prayer.

Do you have the boldness to pass it on?

My Reply To My Facebook Friends For Their Birthday Wishes!

Åρ☺ṧ☂◎ℓї¢ ℐᾔ﹩℘ḯґαт☤☺η :


The Gift Of Friendship!

The greatest gift of God is friendship,
I have received it from your remembrance;
Never to forget the love and toil that it needs,
Of true hearts that join to rejoice.

God's love so divine show to us through,
In friendship eternal that is quite so true;
To know from a book that shows one's face,
It reveals God's grace in the midst of friendless haze.

Thankful from the heart that rejoices to see,
Success and prosperity for all friends who I never see;
By Divine time who see this day I pray,
Full of peace, joy and love so free.

None but You I see in all the friendships gaze,
Full of Jesus Christ and His grace for the race;
Though not perfect but in weakness made strong,
Thank thee for all Your mercies and grace.

"True friendship might be thousands of miles away, but the love and joy of having them is as close as the heart beat of our soul." — Abraham Israel

Why Does God Take Young People So Soon To Himself?

He Glorified God In His Death By Keeping His Faith!

Åρ☺ṧ☂◎ℓї¢ ℐᾔ﹩℘ḯґαт☤☺η :

On Saturday, September 16, 2017, Nabeel Qureshi, age 34, entered into the joy of his master, Jesus Christ, after enduring a yearlong battle with cancer.

“Who plucked this flower?” Said the gardener;

“I” said the Master, and the gardener held his peace.”

Who is the Master of this garden called the earth? It is the one who has created it and to Him rightfully all things must bow, as He is the reason for all its existence (Col 1:16-17; Rom 9:20). Who is the gardener? All the humans to those whom God has given the responsibility to take care of his garden the planet earth are the gardeners (Gen 1:26-30). Whenever we ask God the question, 'Why Lord why?, etc...', we should remind ourselves that we are the gardener in this earth and that Jesus Christ is our Master and Lord who has saved us and rightfully owns everything including us for the furtherance of His own plan and purposes, and to glorify Him through our lives (1 Cor 6:20).

Who plucked that flower? The Master of the garden did, and the gardener had nothing more to say; what could he say? Wisely, he held his peace. The Master’s decision was final. He owns the garden and only He knows His reason for plucking the flower mentioned in the above couplet.

The garden belongs to the Master, and all the flowers are His. He knows every flower in His garden. He knows every bud about to blossom, every flower that has long shared its beauty with the world, and every flower that is about to fade away. And, to suit His over-all divine plan, He plucks flowers as He pleases.

We all are flowers in the Master’s garden, and, in another aspect, we all are sojourners here (Psa 39:12), as well, for this world is not our home (Heb 11:13-14, 16; 13:14; 1 Peter 2:11-12, MSG). For some of us, our stay here is a long one (Psa 90:10), for others the stay it is short, and for sure for Nabeel Qureshi, it was short in which He glorified God and kept His faith until his very end.

Today, Nabeel Qureshi, beholding his Savior face to face, would have declared what is true:

I have fought the good fight.

I have finished the race.

I have kept the faith.

Henceforth there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, will award to me on that day, and not only to me but also to all who have loved his appearing.

(2 Tim. 4:7-8)

Entering into the joy of our Master Jesus Christ, he undoubtedly must have heard the words by now, “Well done, my good and faithful servant.” May we too as God's children, let us work faithfully for our Master Jesus Christ in His service until our very end.
