God’s dream and other ideas

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

Nobody truly knows you, as you really are in your heart of hearts. 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 really 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 you life.

The Seed Of Your Dream

The Seed Of Your Dream

Would you like to know from the very beginning if your dream will become a reality? Would you like to know before you invest a single dollar and do any work if your startup will be successful?
You can. Here’s how.

If your dream springs forth from the deepest part of your heart, that dream is put in your heart by God. If you nourish it with work, learning and leaps of faith, it will become true.

If your dream comes from your reason, from what you see other people doing, from you fear-driven beliefs, from your emotions or market ideas, it will fail.

God is fair and He would not put in your heart a dream without giving you the means to make it happen.

“Is God’s seed important?”
you might ask.

Do you know that the entire history of humanity was transformed with with single cell? The greatness of Jesus and everything that emerged in the world from Christ begun with one seed, one cell in his mother’s womb.

You life will become great when you welcome and nourish the seed of the dream God has put in your heart.

Love Was There

Love Was There

Thousands of years ago when the first people walked the earth, when they lived in caves and discovered fire, Love was there among them.
Hundreds of years ago when the great inventors discovered electricity, radio waves and the steam engine, when industry and science was born, Love was there among them.
Tens of years ago when we entered the information age, when we invented the internet and the mobile phone, Love was there among us.
When science wasn’t, Love was. When science is, Love is. When you weren’t, Love was. When you are, Love is. Love is everywhere and Love is right now.
One of the key messages of the Bible is: “God is Love.” If you find Love everywhere transcending time and space, why then is it so hard for you to believe in God?
