A popular saying, which is often quoted is this “Early to bed, early to rise, makes one healthy, wealthy and wise”. Time has changed now, instead people go to bed late and rise up late and therefore lot of time wasted and we do not realize the consequences of it. Yes! My dear friends, an opportunity missed is missed forever. So, do not delay in doing things on time. There is a small saying which says “stitch in time, save nine”. So, let us learn to do things on time. Lazy people live in misery. An idle mind is devil’s workshop. Therefore the word of God tells us “Go to the ant, you lazybones; consider its ways, and be wise, without having any chief, or officer or ruler, it prepares its food in summer, and gathers its sustenance in harvest, how long will you lie there, o lazybones? when will you rise from your sleep? A little sleep, A little slumber, a little folding of the hands to rest, and poverty will come upon you like a robber, and want like an armed warrior” (Prov. 6:6-11).
“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you; I appointed you a prophet to the nations.” – Jeremiah 1:5. The Lord chooses people to do his work. For we read in the book of Chronicles, “My sons, do not now be negligent, for the Lord has chosen you to stand in his presence to minister to him, and to be his ministers and make offerings to him.” – 2 Chronicles 29:11. “We have priests ministering to the Lord. They offer to the Lord every morning and every evening burnt offerings and fragrant incense.” – 2 Chronicles 13:10-11. “They taught the people having the book of the law of the Lord with them.” – 2 Chronicles 17:9. In this way, my dear brothers and sisters, the Lord chooses his people to work in his kingdom, to proclaim his word, and to bring the lost back to him.
Every human person here on earth, desires to be great, well known, popular, famous and be recognized by all for some kind of achievement. But it is said without pain there is no gain. It is true my dear brothers and sisters. Before we stand on a victory stand we have to fight, struggle, work hard and face all challenges in life. As St. Paul writes to Timothy saying “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith, from now on there is reserved for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, will give me, on that day and not only to me but also to all who have longed for his appearing” (2 Timothy 4:7-8)
Jesus said “In the world you face persecution, but take courage. I have conquered the world” (Jn. 16:33)
Yes! Dear brothers and sisters, people in the world suffer in various ways. People come to me with their varied problems. Many are suffering due to sickness, others suffer due to poverty, exploitation, injustice, enemity, quarrels, hatred, anger, revenge, mental disorder, broken family, joblessness and almost all suffer due to guilt. For all these problems, the answer is Jesus. So trust in him and come to him. So if you are suffering from any of the following problems, then the answer is Jesus.
To those who are heavily burned with sins, debts, lonliness, Jesus says “Come to me, all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble of heart and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” (Mt. 11:28-30)

Jesus alone is God,
No one can stand against our Lord,
Father of all holy one,
In blessings his children never fall short.
Everyone will bow down low,
The atheist and theist both,
They tremble and fall,
When they hear the name of Jesus, our God.
He is everything and all in all,
All authority comes from heaven above,
So let us not raise ourselves to the utmost,
But glorify him through what he has given you all
In Jesus alone is our salvation,
And no one can ever save your life at all,
He alone listens to your call,
No saint or angels will come to console your hurt.

Arise and let your light shine
Move ahead and never stop your fight
God is with you and one day you will be fine
Just fight the war which he wants you to fight.
Let the light of your love shine,
Fire of anger may not be your light,
Your fight is against the one who's seated in the darkness,
With Christ's light you can defeat him with Christ's brightness.
Don't let your heart be discouraged,
If the evil is multiplying in a greater extend.
Let the evil be defeated by good,
If God is with us than who could ever stop us?
If you want to be a victorious warrior,
Then between you and Jesus break all the barriers,
Put on the armor of God,
And with Christ your war is already won.
