How is Your Tests Coming?

HR COMFORTS AND STRENGTHENS US

My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing. James 1:2-4New King James Version

“The long dull monotonous years of middle-aged prosperity or middle-aged adversity are excellent campaigning weather for the Devil.” — C. S. Lewis

Have you ever experienced the furnace of affliction?

You know, the tough times.

The older you get, the more you will experience it.

My worst one lasted two years. In all that time, even though at times it was so overwhelming it felt as if I was going to explode in agony and distress I never lost faith. It seemed as if there was no light at the end of the tunnel but the faith in Jehovah, that He loved me and would never desert me was rock solid. It was one of the best occurrences to happen, it taught me to be patient, and dependant upon Jehovah.

On the other hand I have experienced times of great prosperity. Then my fellowship with Jehovah was as cold as ice. Now I am in the middle and greatly appreciative.

The devil knows our weaknesses and will use them to destroy our Heavenly relationship. That is why it is important to daily commune with our Heavenly loving Father.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Pryyand (God my friend) always bless me to be patient and accept your timing in my life and the gifts You so richly shower upon me. I humbly ask this in the name of the most patient and grateful of all Jesus Christ. Amen

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day

Where to Go When Trouble Comes.

HOLY SPIRIT ENCOURAGER

All who are oppressed may come to Him. He is a refuge for them in their time of troublePsalm 9:9  New King James Version

Have you ever had a jerk off for an employer? Have you ever been bullied at school or work? Have you ever had an abusive relative or been in an abusive relationship? Then you know what it feels like to be oppressed.

I personally have experienced them all. Whenever that occurred I cried my heart out to Jehovah. A feeling of serenity and peace enveloped me and gave me strength to carry on.

Now once the opportunity came to exit these horrours that opportunity was taken.

Sometimes afterward it took Christian counseling to recover from it.

That was another blessing because it helped me realize how much I at times was a passive participant and how to handle abusive souls.

My life is much better now because of it. Through it all Jehovah was there.

Jehovah loves you, Jehovah cares. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emunah (Jehovah is faithful) for always being faithful to comfort, encourage and strengthen me in my times of oppression. I extol You in the name of he who You strengthened in His time of oppression during His time of trial Jesus Christ. Amen

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

Do You Grieve Him?

REPENT OR ELSE

But they rebelled and grieved His Holy Spirit; So He turned Himself against them as an enemy, and He fought against them. Isaiah 63:10New King James Version

Are you a Christian?

Have you ever rebelled against God?

No?

How about if the Holy Spirit moves you to apologize or forgive someone and you refuse?

Is that not behaving like a disobedient child?

You are either Jesus’ friend or you are His enemy. There is no other ground. If you obey Him He is your friend, if you disobey Him, you are His enemy. If you are His friend He will bless you, if you are His enemy He will curse you. Have you ever grieved Him by being disobedient?

The beautiful part of it though is that when we repent He forgives us and will welcome us back into His holy family. Read your Old Testament. See how many times the ancient Israelites disobeyed Him and were punished. See how many times after they repented he blessed them.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Hosanna (God of His people) forgive me for the times I was a naughty child and thank you for welcoming back into Your holy family when I repented. I ask for and give thanks for these blessings in the name of He who forgave those the disciple who denied Him Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus sweet love bless you today and every day

Is Not Glory

PRIDE

It is not good to eat much honey; So to seek one’s own glory is not glory. Proverbs 25: 26 New King James Version

glory:praise, honor, or distinction extended by common consent  Merriam Webster dictionary

We all have talents that are gifts from Jehovah.

To take the glory for them is an abomination to Him and an insult.

Let us say you give someone food and teach them how to cook. They go on to sell many cook books and have their own TV show and brag about hoe good of a cook they are. Would you not feel insulted?

Think of how much more Jehovah is insulted by the glory hounds.

We are each blessed with a talent to bless others with. In doing so we bring glory to where it belongs, to Jehovah.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh (God our provider) for the blessing You have so wisely and generously bestowed upon me. Please bless me for opportunities to use these God given talents to bring praise to You and to bring Your lost children into Your precious Holy family. I humbly request this in the name of He who always gave the glory to You Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

Bring Praise to God

GENTLE STREAM WINDING THROUGH FOREST

Accept one another, then, just as Christ accepted you, in order to bring praise to God. Romans 15:7 New International Version.

Just because they are different is no justification for rejecting them.

If you have ever travelled like I have or live in a multi cultural society like I do you will experience many different cultures and customs that are strange to you. Do not laugh at them and belittle them like I have seen so many do. I talk with them and ask them to explain those customs and discover very interesting history.

It is the same with wealth and poverty. I have lived with generous souls both rich and poor and was rewarded with eye opening experiences that have enriched my life. So do not be a snob because someone is richer or poorer that you.

Just because someone has a medical disability is no reason to look down on them. I have met many who have great spiritual strength blessed upon them because of their disabilities.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Yehew (God of His people) bless me to see and accept others with love and respect just as Your loving son did when He walked amongst us. I humbly ask this in His beautiful name Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

Which Highway Are You On?

SATANS TRAP

 

Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it. Matthew 7:13-14New King James Version

I have walked up many difficult jungle trails that many people laughed at me for doing. At the top of those trails was the most amazing scenery I have ever seen. A feeling of calm, peace, serenity and love enveloped my very being.

I have seen many sidewalks on streets that lead to malls so congested you could barely move. Those people are caught in the materialistic world of trying to keep up with the Jones and are slaves to big business. They are sad and miserable.

So too it is with the Eternal Highway.

Most are on the smooth Highway to Hell but the few of us that are on the Highway to Heaven are on the rough road. Joseph- Anthony: Green

At the end of our journey though we will be rewarded with the most fantastic dwelling place there is or a place of despair and agony.

Which highway are you on?

Prayer: Please Jehovah Rohi (the Lord is our Shepard) guide Your childs footsteps upon Your Highway which leads me into Your divine loving arms as You welcome me to the home You have waiting for me. I humbly ask this of You in the name of He who guides the way Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

You Left Him First.

RED IN A SEA OF GREEN

Because you have forsaken the Lord, He also has forsaken you. 2 Chronicles 24:20 New King James Version

How many times do you thank Jehovah in a day for blessings both big and small?

It is impossible for me to count them all.

I know many souls who the only time they want anything to do with me is when they want something from me. They do not have the decency or respect to ask, they only try to con.

Do you do that with Jehovah?

God if You will do this for me, I will do that for You. When Jehovah has done His part, you conveniently forget to do yours.

That is not a loving relationship that is an abusive one.

I do not tolerate it; do you foolishly believe Jehovah will?

How many times a week do you spend time with Jehovah just to be with Him?

Church does not count. This is when it is just you and Jehovah.

I spend an entire day once a week walking in the forest or sitting by a stream.

The closer we get to nature, the closer we get to Jehovah. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Because you have left Jehovah why do you expect Him to remain in an abusive relationship with you?

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Abba (my beloved Heavenly Father) for blessing me wit the most treasured gift of all, a wonderful loving relationship with You. I greatly exalt You in the name of my big brother Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

Are You a Denier?

exquisite pink rose being gently caressed by raindrops

“A man who refuses to admit his mistakes can never be successful. But if he confesses and forsakes them, he gets another chance.” Proverbs 28:13 New King James Version

Have you ever met the Not my fault gang?

They are the ones that when they do something wrong it is never their fault. It is societies, fault, it is your fault, it is their families fault.

I just shake my head, call them a fool and walk away.

The thing is that it eventually catches up with them.

It affects their relationships, they end up sad and lonely. It affects their health (most suffer insomnia and a host of other ailments).

Many times I have messed up but quickly fessed up. Sometimes though, it too the Lord to press His hand hard upon me to confess and with His help repent (repent means to not only to admit to ones sin and ask for forgiveness but to also by Gods grace stop doing the wrong thing). He has always blessed me with another chance. Why would Jehovah waste another chance on some idiot that refuses to even admit they are wrong? Because they refuse to admit they are wrong their attitude will never change. They will always be spiritual failures.

The proud are on the highway to Hell. The humble are on the highway to Heaven. Joseph- Anthony: Green.

Prayer: Please Jehovah KalEl (the voice of God) bless me to always be attentive to the Holy Spirits guidance and repent of my sins. I humbly ask this in the name of He who taught obedience to Your will Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day

Your Money Perish with You.

YOU WILL LOSE IT

 

“Your money perish with you, because you thought that the gift of God could be purchased with money!  You have neither part nor portion in this matter, for your heart is not right in the sight of God. Acts 8:18-21 New King James Version

You cannot buy it.

You cannot buy your way into Jehovahs grace.

There are many ways to attempt to buy your way into it.

Of course there is giving money to the church or charitable causes. Now there is nothing wrong with doing this but if you are doing it to gain Gods grace then your motive is wrong.                                                                                .

There is volunteering your time and energy Again it is the same principal as above.

The only way to obtain Jehovahs grace is to accept the sacrifice of our high priest Jesus Christ and to desire a loving respectful relationship with the trinity. Nothing else will do.

Prayer: Thank you Jesus, our high priest, for the supreme sacrifice You made so I am blessed with the most precious relationship. I humbly exalt You in Your cherished name. Amen                                                                                                                

  May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

Do Not Answer Accordingly.

NO SWORD WORDS

Do not answer a fool according to his folly, Lest you also be like him. Answer a fool according to his folly, Lest he be wise in his own eyes. Proverbs 26: 4-5 New King James Version

 

folly: the lack of good sense or judgment, a foolish act or idea : foolish behavior Merriam Webster dictionary

Never argue with an idiot. To do so means you have to go down to their level and they will beat you from experience every time. Anonymous

Have you ever gotten into an argument with a stubborn arrogant man or woman before?

They believe they are right and refuse to listen to the facts. When they start losing the debate they begin making outrageous accusations about you that have nothing to do with what you are debating about.

Whenever I get in that situation I just state the facts and then walk away, refusing to allow them to bait me into a stupid argument that will only upset me.

These creatures like to do that to make themselves look superior. Many times they are educated souls. They may be educated but that does not make them wise, especially if they are educated in lies, like the evolutionists.

Prayer: Please Jehovah KalEl (voice of God )  bless me with wisdom, meekness and gracefulness to refute the arrogant like Your son did the scribes and Pharisees in His time on earth. I humble request this in His wise, graceful and meek name of Jesus Christ. Amen

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.
