The Sins of the Youth

The Sins of Youth

A simple act of disobedience against God can cause months – even years of delay – in you fulfilling your dreams and your destiny. The sins of the youth will bring years of pain and regret in the following years. I am writing this letter to you with great love, as one who’s traveled down this dark road, and has learned the lessons, as a fool, the hard way – through my own life. The drifting moments of pleasure are not worth the tremendous price they come with in the years to come.

I am writing this letter to you with great love, as one who’s traveled down this dark road, and has learned the lessons, as a fool, the hard way – through my own life. The drifting moments of pleasure are not worth the tremendous price they come with in the years to come.
Sin is not that thing that the church seems to be trying to scare you with, but it is embedded in the very fabric of the Universe, as the law “what you sow, you reap manifold.” Suffering and hurt are the fruit of sin, as joy and life are the fruits of righteousness. I am telling you the truth. Beware of the sins of the youth.

A Star in Born

A Star is Born

Have you watched the movie “A Star is Born”?

There’s a song in the film where Lady Gaga sings:

“Tell me something boy, aren’t you tired tryin’ to fill that void?”

There are many people in the world living with the void in their hearts, and nothing seems to fill it. This void is probably the best kept secret of every person walking on the earth today. This void is the root cause of every problem in the universe, from anxiety, depression, fear, addiction, hurt, filling insecure, unworthy, shameful, guilty, unloved, not enough, and all the other secrets people carry.

The solution has been around for 2,000 years. Blaise Pascal, the famous mathematician and scientist, wrote in the 1600s: “There is a vacuum in the heart of each man which cannot be satisfied by any created thing, but only by God the Creator, made know through us by Jesus Christ.”

If you want to fill that void, come to Christ and open your heart to Him. You will be flooded with love and that void will disappear. “God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.” (Romans 5:5)

Dreams like lemon trees

Dreams Like Lemon Trees

Back in my home town, I spent the day with a friend who had recently bought a piece of land. As we walked the property in the misty rain, we discovered several rows of lemon trees that nobody had taken care of for a long time, and had been completely covered by weeds. In most places, the weeds have grown higher than the citrus trees and completely covered them. Only a few trees had made their way towards the sky to catch some sunlight, while others had died, choked by the bush and the weeds.

Your dreams in life are like lemon trees. God planted great dreams in your heart, and, with time, if nurtured, they begin to grow. But every day, the world is bringing its weeds as well: the voices of others, the daily news, the opinions of people. They also grow – much faster than your dream – and if you don’t pluck the negativity of the world from your heart, it will choke and suffocate your dream and your destiny.

Nobody seems to be planting the weeds and they grow by themselves. Your dream needs your careful attention every day. If you clean your heart from all weeds and nurture your dream, it will grow, become mature, and bare much fruit in your life.

“Keep your heart with all diligence, for out it are the issues of life” (Proverbs 4:23)

The Meaning of Life

The Meaning of Life

As a scientist who has spent most of his life in the aerospace industry, studying at NASA and working in space programs around the world, I understand the value of science in our lives. Science has extended our lifespan, brought benefits to our health, opened the skies for us to travel further and faster. But science can only go so far. Science cannot offer fulfillment to our hearts, cannot fill the spiritual emptiness people struggle with, cannot heal our souls, and cannot give meaning to our life.

There are three important periods in your life. When you enter into your twenties, you chase a career that other people have suggested, recommended, or even imposed on you. You are doing other people’s will. Before you enter into your thirties, frustration, anxiety, and depression – sometimes illnesses – begin to set in because you feel you have no purpose in life. If you find the courage to break the bondage and leave, you go to find your own road in life. You discover your passion, and you follow your dreams for a while. You feel enthusiasm because it seems that you have found freedom. You are doing your will. This period is enjoyable, but this too doesn’t last long because, while it gives you excitement, it is not the true meaning of life. And one day, when God touches your heart and you put all your dreams at His feet, when you lift your hands and say: “Jesus, here I am. I am yours. Everything I am, everything I have, use it,” you begin to do God’s will. When you get here, you are finally free. You have found the true meaning of life.

There are three questions that guide your life, and the answer to these questions is the foundation for everything we are, and for everything we do in life. Early in our exploration of life, we are guided by the “what”: What can I do, what can I get, what can I achieve? Very soon we learn that the “what” is void of life, dead of purpose, and empty of any joy.

Later, as we let go of the “what,” we begin to be guided by the “why.” We ask ourselves questions such as “Why am I here?” or “Why am I doing what it is that I’m doing?” The common trend nowadays is to start with the “why.” But persist long enough, and you realize that the “why” will not get you far. The third question, and the one that opens a new dimension of abundant living is the “who”: “Who am I doing this for?” or “Who am I living for?” The only answer that will make you unstoppable in the pursuit of your dreams is “God.” When you surrender your life to Christ, when you honor the dreams He put in your heart, and you do everything in your power to honor Him, you discover a new dimension of glory, inner power, and peace unshakable by this world. When you become a child of God, in spirit and in truth, you discover the true meaning of life.

In the Heart of Hearts

In The Heart of Hearts

Have you ever had the realisation that nobody truly knows you, as you really are in your heart of hearts? You probably know the feeling that, no matter how open you are, not even your closest friend can fully know you or understand you.

Nobody from this world can completely know you because that secret place in the deepest deep of your heart is not of this world. The profound intimacy (“into me you see”) you need to have with someone so that you feel known is reserved only for God. No one from this world can enter into the secret place of Heaven in your heart.

You may not know God’s heart. You may be upset with him. You may even doubt his reality. None of that matters. He knows you.

He knows you as you truly are. He knows you as you yearn to be known. He knows you with the dark and the light, with the low and the high, the ugly and the beautiful, the hidden and the truth. He knows the fear and the anger, the envy and the strife. He knows all the thoughts of your heart. He knows you as intimate and as deep as you do not even know yourself. He knows you in all and every moment.
Because he made you, he knows you, and he knows you as he made you and not as you think you are.

Because he truly knows you, he loves you with a love that gives life forevermore.
