Many of us believe, only what our eyes see. But the spiritual realities have to be understood by the word of God and experienced by faith. And that is why St. Paul says “We walk by faith and not by sight” (2 Cor 5:7). So, it is our faith in God and belief in the word of God, which will reveal the mysteries of the kingdom of God. one such spiritual reality is the presence of Angels in our life. Yes! Angels are real and they are created by God. we read in the letter of Hebrews “Are not all angels spirits in the divine service, sent to serve for the sake of those who are to inherit salvation?” (Heb. 1:14). So angels are the spirits, hence they are not visible to our eyes, yet they are serving God and his children. When I was a child, I was taught to seek the help of my guardian angels. So, I use to pray for their help and for their assistance. Even today, I don’t fail to pray to them and believe, they have been always with me to guard me and protect me. And that is what, Psalm 91 says “He will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways” (Psalm. 91:11)
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)

Spirit of wisdom have control over me,
Keep me from distractions while I do God's will,
When trials come I will stand still,
For you are my refuge in the times of evil.
Let my whole body glorify my God,
With all my substances I will magnify my Lord,
I will bless the Lord with all my heart,
I will stand at his court writing and singing new songs.
Spirit of God you are my friend,
A very help in times of need,
I want you in every work which I undertake,
So that I may do only what is God's will is.
Sanctify my soul with your fire,
Take away from me all who are liars,
Let your glory shine in every corners of my life,
And my mouth will shout only the joyous cry.

When we are dead,
We sleep on bed,
Where worms are our friend,
This all our soul won't care.
We go to sleep,
Where we can't feel,
What the world is doing,
What the world is thinking.
Our God laughs sitting in the heaven
When people being so foolish,
Praying for their dead fellow's spirit,
This is of no use please understand ye people.
After death there is no chance,
To reconcile, to repent and to be get cleansed.
This life is unique, which God have gifted us.
Live it to get more closer to Christ Jesus, the way towards our Heavenly Father
Pray for those who are dead,
Dead in the sense who are slaves serving this evil world,
Pray that may God save their soul,
So that while living they may gain that eternal abode.
