Isaiah 53 verse 5: “But He was pierced because of our transgression, crushed because of our iniquities; punishment for our peace was on Him, and we are healed by His wounds:.

What a great verse for Easter week. Some people may say. ‘why did that have to happen’? The verse before it explains that: V6:

“We all went astray like sheep; we all have turned to our own way; and The Lord has punished Him for the iniquities of us all“.

God is a Holy God. God is A Righteous God, God is A Just God, and God is a Loving God. God’s Holiness, can not sin {transgress} or tolerate sin transgression. That might seem harsh, but He is also All-Knowing {Omniscent}.

He knows the life draining effects of sin [ Transgressions, wrong-doings}, We had no way, to heave fellowship with a Holy and Righteous God, but because He is Just and Loving, He gave of Himself, for ‘Whosoever’ who would receive repent and receive John 3 verse 16;

Isaiah 53 is a prophecy of what His only begotten Son, Christ Jesus would go through on our behalf to restore us to fellowship with Him. But Isaiah 53 doesn’t give us the details of Christ History in advance, it explains the purpose of it,

We are the reason, Christ Jesus, was pierced and crushed and punished and wounded. His gruesome death was redemptive in nature.

The cross was not a mere event, or accident of history or random act of violence, it in verse 6, we have the answer, it was for us, any ‘whosoever’ who wants to come fellowship with a Loving God. True love is not wishey-washey, it will always seek justice for wrong doing.

In Hebrews 9 verse 11 to 22; Tells us of The New Covenant, Christ Jesus paid the high price for us ‘any whosoever’ to have with Him and The Father and The Holy Spirit.

God Bless.

Dear the friend who currently isn’t talking to me,

I didn’t mean it the way it came out. I think you got the scale of my anger wrong. I think I spoke too harsh for what I was feeling. I was mad but not so mad that you should be blocking me.

I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I’m sorry

I want an apology –

But I know it would hurt you to give me one

I know you’re insecure and I should’ve explained myself better

But I was angry. Don’t you know how that feels? I wanted a break but I got it at the cost of your friendship and I swear that was not my goal.

How do I say “you hurt me” and “I forgive you” but “please don’t make me explain it”?

You make me feel guilty for my anger. Like I was wrong to feel you cut so deeply. You didn’t mean it like that. Maybe I am just over reacting

I’m sorry, 
I don’t know how to be friends with someone like you

I promise I’m trying though

When you’re mad at me for crying over you in front of my friends

Because you don’t want to look bad,

You are the one who needs to apologize,

Not me.


Still I find myself on my knees begging for your forgiveness,

For your approval,

For your love

And somehow it doesn’t matter how much I know I deserve better.

Somehow my whole heart is yours.

“Christ sacrificed his life’s blood to set us free, which means that our sins are now forgiven. Christ did this because God was so kind to us. God has great wisdom and understanding,” (Ephesians 1:7 – Contemporary English Version) It’s through Christ that our sins have been forgiven. And this may be the most definitive sign of God’s love. You see, we’ve been freed from our past so that we can begin to live a new life right now.

You’re trying to get things back to normal, back to the way they used to be.

You’re more attentive, more affectionate, and you spend more time at home.

I appreciate everything.

But, why is it not enough?

Why does everything you do remind me of your infidelity?

Every time you tell me something sweet, I always hear you telling her the same things too.

Every time I see you seemingly happy, every time I see you smile, I wonder if you still think about her.

Am I ever going to get over this?

MY THOUGHTS ON KOE NO KATACHI

Yesterday, I watched Koe No Katachi/A Silent Voice/The Shape of Voice and I’m still not over this rollercoaster of emotions. I thought nothing could top Your Name in terms of anime romance until I saw this and loved it even more than Your Name. It’s grounded in reality and there’s no magical realism of any kind and that all works in the story’s favor. Both the good and the terrible things that happen in the movie could be found in everyday life, it’s about bullying, guilt and regret for the past, depression, disabilities, social isolation, suicide, friendship, redemption and love. It’s heart-wrenching and devastating but also beautiful and hopeful. The animation is glorious, the art direction is magnificent, the characters are all complex and (mostly) morally grey people, the music will tug at your heartstrings and the overall story about a teen seeking to do right by the person he tormented as a kid is extremely moving and surprisingly relatable. By its third act, I was pretty much bawling my eyes out and it didn’t stop until that wonderful and tear-jerking ending. There are some incredibly powerful and emotional moments and I could go on for hours without doing it justice and I could talk about some of the most beautiful aspects of the movie but I would be spoiling it. Just go see it if you can, it’s worth every second of your time.

Luke 7:36-48

One of the Pharisees asked him to eat with him, and he went into the Pharisee’s house and reclined at table. And behold, a woman of the city, who was a sinner, when she learned that he was reclining at table in the Pharisee’s house, brought an alabaster flask of ointment, and standing behind him at his feet, weeping, she began to wet his feet with her tears and wiped them with the hair of her head and kissed his feet and anointed them with the ointment.

Now when the Pharisee who had invited him saw this, he said to himself, “If this man were a prophet, he would have known who and what sort of woman this is who is touching him, for she is a sinner.”

And Jesus answering said to him, “Simon, I have something to say to you.” And he answered, “Say it, Teacher.”

“A certain moneylender had two debtors. One owed five hundred denarii, and the other fifty. When they could not pay, he cancelled the debt of both. Now which of them will love him more?”

Simon answered, “The one, I suppose, for whom he cancelled the larger debt.” And he said to him, “You have judged rightly.”

Then turning toward the woman he said to Simon, “Do you see this woman? I entered your house; you gave me no water for my feet, but she has wet my feet with her tears and wiped them with her hair. You gave me no kiss, but from the time I came in she has not ceased to kiss my feet. You did not anoint my head with oil, but she has anointed my feet with ointment. Therefore I tell you, her sins, which are many, are forgiven—for she loved much. But he who is forgiven little, loves little.”

And he said to her, “Your sins are forgiven.”

“Whoever does a lot of Istighfar (asking for forgiveness), Allah will provide him a way out of each concern he has, and will solve all his troubles, and will provide him with livelihood from sources that were not known to him” (Ahmad).

“The person you should never forget in your life is not someone you hate but someone you love. While keeping someone you hate in your heart, your heart will be scarred and hurt. It will only be your loss. Keep only people you love in your heart. Only then can you eat well and sleep well.”

  • الشخص الذي لا يجب أن تنساه أبدًا في حياتك ليس شخصًا تكرهه بل شخص تحبه. عندما تحتفظ بشخص تكرهه في قلبك، سيصاب قلبك بالندوب والأذى. ستكون خسارتك انت فقط. احتفظ فقط بالأشخاص الذين تحبهم في قلبك. عندها فقط يمكنك أن تأكل جيدًا وتنام بسلام.
