A closer walk with our beloved friend.

The Lord Gave Me.



The Lord your God will make you abound in all the work of your and, in the fruit of your body, in the increase of your livestock, and in the produce of your land for good.Deuteronomy 30:9 New King James Version


The Lord gave me the idea to go cherry picking, the Lord gave me the resources to go cherry picking (a bicycle to get there) and the trees, the Lord gave me the opportunity to save money (because they were split because of heavy rain the farmer only charged me half price) but it was I who did the work.

The Lord gave me the idea to go blueberry picking, the Lord gave me the resources to go blueberry picking (a bicycle to get there) and I obeyed. Because of the heavy rain the farmer gave us bags of blueberries free.

The Lord gave me the idea to pick the wild raspberries around our house. I went out and picked baskets full. The Lord gave me the idea to go out and pick the wild raspberries  but I did the work.

The first lesson is that for the process to work you cannot depend upon yourself but upon Jehovah and when He blesses you, you are expected to do some of the work. Do not expect the Lord to do all the work for you or for you to do the work without the Lord. The second lesson is to give praise to Jehovah for the idea, opportunity and resources to do the work but also accept credit for the effort you have put into the work.

Because of this we have a freezer full of fruit to last us the winter.

We need to put this into every aspect in our lives in order to succeed with the Lord in our lives.

To receive Gods blessing means you must work as a team with Him. Those who ask and are not prepared to work will not receive. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh (The Lord our provider) for blessing me with the recipe for success in life. I exalt you in the name of the greatest harvester Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

After faithfully serving the Lord in China for ten years as a teacher I have been called home to care for my aged mother who has numerous disabilities. As well I regularly do volunteer work visiting seniors in a seniors home. I love being in nature. I say the closer we get to nature the more we see Jehovah. We are blessed in this area with many amazing, easy to ride bicycle trails on old railroad lines that takes us all over Southern Ontario.

  1. A good reminder of the fact that the Lord provides ways for us. That doesn’t mean He drops things in our laps done and complete all the time. We need to seek the opportunities He shows us and then pursue them to get what we want and need. Steve

    • The Lord will give us the cow but we have to be the ones to milk it to get the milk. When we have this attitude He always provides and unending supply of blessings. Joseph- Anthony: Green
