A closer walk with our beloved friend.

It is Difficult.


And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.  Romans 8:28 New King James Version

Have you ever done long distance running?

After a run many times your body aches with sore muscles being strained. It is difficult.   But the more you run the more your body becomes accustomed to the exercise. When you first start out you can barely run a hundred yards. After a month you may be able to run a mile.

It is the same with the Christian walk. At first it is difficult to do your daily Bible reading, saying prayer and metamorphosing slowly in Jehovahs child. It is difficult. But the more you practice it the more it becomes habit.

Have you ever tried to lose weight?

Many times it means making sacrifices like changing your diet. You have to give up junk food you love for nutritious food that promotes good health. It is difficult.

It is the same with metamorphosing into a Christian lifestyle. You have to give up many destructive habits and slowly cement Christian morals into every fiber of your being. It is difficult. For me it was the most painful and difficult process I have ever experienced. In the end I praise Jehovah every day for blessing me with burning off the dross and purifying me (that does not mean I am perfect it just means that many of my destructive habit were destroyed, like stubbornness, by the Holy Spirit).

Have you ever learned something and was sure what the teacher was teaching was wrong? You are sure it will not work or that your way is better. Only when you trusted and obeyed him that you discover he or she was right all along? It is difficult. It is the same way with the Holy Spirit in His guidance to you. So many times it does not make sense or seems doomed to failure. Only when you but your faith (trust) in Him do you discover He was right all along. It is difficult.


Being a Christian is not easy, if it was anybody could do it. We would not need Christs help. It is a lifetime of being put on the potters wheel. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Many times it is difficult to obey Jehovah and to trust in His Divine guidance but when we are faithful and obedient unto Him and we are at the other end of the furnace we rejoice in the good He has blessed us with because it was for our own good.

“Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself.” Leo Tolstoy                            

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Bara (The Lord Creator) for blessing me with burning off the dross and putting me on Your Divine potters wheel to transform me into the child You long for me to be. Thank you for Your wise guidance in my life that has prevented many tragedies and completed many amazing feats to Your glory. I exalt You in the name of He who completed awesome feats when He walked amongst us Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sweet sunshine of Jesus’ beautiful 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

  1. Great Post….It’s amazing when we allow ourselves to be guided by the Holy Spirit, how he will take us a different route than the one we are use to travelling on….
