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)

God is a master of the impossible. He made the world out of nothing. - Pretty good old world, isn't it? He hung it on nothing. - Hangs pretty good, doesn't it? Nothing is too hard for Him!
People of God,
Rejoice in our Lord.
Sing and shout aloud,
For our God is glorious of all.
Give thanks to him with all your heart,
For he was there with you in the times of hard
He protected you from every evils dark
He have put you in his heavenly park.
He have given you hope,
When you were crushed down by the mob,
He have given you strength,
When you were so weak to take your breath.
He have given you a new life.
He have protected you from devil's plan,
For he is there so you are there,
We exist because of his grace.

Oh what a beautiful moment with Christ,
Nobody can give me that peace in my mind,
My voice and hands to him I raise,
Jesus you are a great king who is to be praised.
Oh what a joy in serving him in his court,
Graces and mercies from him it flows,
What a lovely moment to sit near his footstool.
From him blows the wind of mercies which is cool.
Oh what a wonderful day to sing with his saints.
Oh how beautiful is to bring glory to his name.
Oh how joyful is to praise him with his servant.
Oh how peaceful is to stay in his presence.
I may give praise to your holy name.
Just for me from heaven you came,
You died for me for my life sake,
So that you may give me that heavenly palace.
