A closer walk with our beloved friend.

Gives Us Power



For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline. 2 Timothy 1:7 New International Version

I was a biological alcoholic and tried everything from herbal medicine, hypnosis, diet and counseling to conquer this terrible disease. It was not until I fell on my knees and cried out to the Lord to rescue His child that it was conquered. It was not me that conquered it, it was the Holy Spirit.

It was not me but the Holy Spirit that blessed me with teaching me and strengthening me in how to develop a loving relationship with our Beloved and because of this become even more loving to others.


I would be terrible at starting projects and then abandoning them (usually because I believed I was a failure). It was the Holy Spirit that taught me and strengthened me to complete assignments Jesus had instructed me to do.

This is not a one off event.

This process must be repeated every day in every aspect of our lives.

Prayer: Thank you Holy Spirit Elohim (Holy Spirit our Creator) for Your amazing patience with this difficult student to create in me the child that Jehovah knew I was meant to be and for freeing me from the addictive chains that were dragging me into a living hell. I praise You in the name of He who You strengthened in His time of need before going to Calvary Jesus Christ. Amen.                                                    

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

As Christ is our King, so too are we His free will servants Joseph a son of Jehovah I have been a faithful servant of our Lord for the past forty years. He has led me to move from the farm to the city. It was there I learned natural medicine as well as to serve by doin volunteer work in a hospital. This was preparing me for the next stage of growth and service unto Him. The next phase was to live in a tent in the western provinces of Canada planting trees. It has here in His marvelous creation of nature that He taught me so much of Himself while serving others in camp as a first aid attendant. If anybody got sick or injured they always came to me. As well, I learned to be a big brother and care about their mental health and for most, it was the first time they were ever loved. This caring for others prepared me for the next step which was to be a teacher all over China. Here not only did my example guide many to our Heavenly King but also taught me how to deal with narcissist. This prepared me to come home to take care of a narcissistic mother while dealing with narcissist family members. It was in China that the Lord also guided me to become a Christian writer which has been faithfully done for the past ten years. I know not what will happen tomorrow but I know who holds tomorrow in His hands and it is Him I place my total confidence and trust in. Joseph a son of Jehovah
