For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. Ephesians 2:10 New International Version
Every day I pray that Jesus molds me to be more like Him.
One day I wanted to go to the library to work on my writing. (it is very hot and the library has air-conditioning. As well they are doing construction where I live and it is very noisy).
There was a strong feeling to go grocery shopping instead.
When at the supermarket there was a one day sale where many of the items needed were half price.
While waiting in line an elderly Chinese female tried to queue jump in front of me.
I firmly but politely informed her to go to the back of the line as I stretched out my arm to prevent her from jumping in front of me.
Chinese are very stubborn and rude so the arm was put out because they just ignore you and do as they want anyway.
She tried to ignore me and push in front. I gently but firmly pushed her back and told her in a stronger voice to get to the back of the line.
She understood she was not going to get away with her rudeness and the cashier informed her she would not accept her groceries until she got to the back of the line so she angrily went to the back of the line.
The other Chinese females were happily impressed. Upon reflecting upon it later I realized that is exactly what Jesus would have done.
Please do not be politically correct and say the old female should have been allowed to get away with her arrogant rudeness. Jesus did not accept abhorrent behavior from anyone regardless of age or status and neither should a Christian.
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rabbi (God our teacher) for blessing me in the proper manner in how to deal with arrogant and rude men and women.
I give thanks for this gift in the name of he who did not tolerate rudeness 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
