Have Nothing More to do With Them.

 When He gives quietness, who then can make trouble?Job 34:29 Holy Bible New King James Version

 I have a very contentious neighbor. He can go off like a rocket with little to no provocation by me. He is a constant thorn in my side. Indeed many times some very un-Christian words come out of my mouth during the conversation as he continuously pushes my buttons.

This problem was taken to the Lord and asked the proper manner in which to handle the situation without me exploding at him as he irritated me. The above verse jumped out at me during the next mornings Bible Verse as well as;

If people are causing divisions among you, give a first and second warning. After that, have nothing more to do with them. Titus 3:10 New Living Translation Bible

This makes perfect sense.

These types of folks are not interested in anyone’s opinion but their own and care not about anyone but themselves. Trying to talk things out with them is like talking with a wall. I do not waste my time talking with walls.

I do not even speak with him if he tries to talk with me, I keep silent and ignore him. It prevents a lot of trouble.

Now there is a lot more peace in my life.

If you refuse to be respectful enough to listen to others opinion then do not waste my time. Go talk with yourself. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah ‘Uzam (The Lord is our Strength in Trouble) bless me with peace, wisdom,grace and strength when encountering those who delight in causing grief to others. I sincerely request this in the name of who kept His peace when dealing with arrogant detractors and unfair accusers towards Him, Jesus Christ. Amen

Wishing you a house full of sunshine, hearts full of cheer and love that grows deeper each day of the year. Welsh blessing

God Gives Us Just Enough To

 Just as you cannot understand the path of the wind or the mystery of a tiny baby growing in its mother’s womb, so you cannot understand the activity of God, who does all things. Ecclesiastes 11:5 Holy Bible, New Living Translation

Early in my walk with Jesus, He would slowly reveal Himself to me a little bit at a time. Each time I was silly and believed I knew God. Then Jehovah would throw a curve ball at me and reveal something of Himself to me that was totally unexpected. A good laugh would be shared between us.

Even now, after decades of walking with Him and being very intimate with Him my knowledge of Him would fit into a teaspoon.

That is the wonderful thing about Him though, it is always a surprise and great delight when He blesses me with a revelation of another attribute of Him. He truly is, an awesome God.

“God gives us just enough to seek him, and never enough to fully find Him. To do more would inhibit our freedom, and our freedom is very dear to God.” — Ron Hansen

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah GELAH RAZ ( the God of the Revealer of Mysteries) for blessing me with revelation of You and Your amazing mysterious attributes. I thank you for the gift of knowing more and more about You as You expand Yourself to me. I praise You in the name of He who exemplified You as He walked amongst us Jesus Christ. Amen

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love fill your heart today and every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

The Best In Crowd There Is

 The temptations in your life are no different from what others experience. And God is faithful. He will not allow the temptation to be more than you can stand. When you are tempted, he will show you a way out so that you can endure. 1 Corinthians 10:13 Holy Bible, New Living Translation

Being a recent ex smoker it seems as if temptation comes numerous times a day every day. They are ever so subtle but annoying. By Gods grace Bible verses that are memorized are recited and the temptation vanishes.

That is easy but then there is the group tempters. This is when you are tempted to do something wrong just to fit in with the “in crowd”. Trust me, after seeing the “in crowd’ forty years later it is best to avoid these losers at all cost.

That is why it is best to be with the best in crowd there is, the Christian in crowd.

To the world we look like geeks but then again we do not suffer from overdoses or getting shot at or sexual diseases. Sounds like a fun crowd huh?

Then there is the employment climber. That is where a employer tries to get you to do something unethical. Trust me I have seen what happens when the gig is up the one at the bottom of the ladder is usually the one taking the fall. It is not worth it.

The devil will always tempt you but stand firm in Christ by reading the Bible and memorizing victory verses. Have continual communion with Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit so that you are sensitive to their voice. Have a few close brothers and sisters that will be there to encourage you and support you .

“Opportunity may knock only once, but temptation leans on the doorbell.” Author Unknown

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah M’Kaddesh (The Lord is my Sanctifier) for blessing me with integrity so as to be sanctified unto Your Holy manner in which to conduct myself. Doing this prevents much trouble in my life and enables me to be a child whose actions please You. I exalt You in the name of He whose actions shine brightly thousands of years later, Jesus Christ. Amen

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love fill your heart today and every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Who Better is There Than

The Lord is a friend to those who fear him. He teaches them his covenant. My eyes are always on the Lord, for he rescues me from the traps of my enemies. Psalm 25:14-15 Holy Bible, New Living Translation.

A covenant is an agreement between two people (in this case between Jehovah and us). It is an unbroken promise.

Jehovah teaches us to be the closest of best friends with Him.

Close friends share the good times and the bad times together. Jehovah is there to enjoy the good times with us and to encourage us through the hard times.

Close friends confidently confide with each other their deepest secrets. We can confidently confide in Jehovah and He never blabs it all over town. He loves to confide in us.

Close friends watch out for each other. Now it is impossible for us to watch out for Jehovah but we can watch out for His other children around us. He is always watching out for us. He never sleeps nor is too busy or on vacation and unavailable.

Close friends are always there to help each other. We cannot help Jehovah personally but we can help out those in His community as an act of helping Him out. Jehovah is always there to help us not matter the problem.

Close friends will fight to the death to protect each other. We cannot fight to protect Jehovah but we can fight to protect His children suffering because of injustice (this need not be confined to third world countries but look around us today in industrialized countries and we see the wicked ones constantly at battle against Jehovahs children (and yes, the socialists called liberals are the worst perpetrators).

I cannot count the number of times Jehovah has laughed at the wicked ones as He led me safely away from their vile traps and they became entangled in their own traps.

Who better is there than Jehovah to be our closest of closest best friend. It is impossible to think of anyone to be His equal much less His superior. That is why Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit are my closest of closest best friends. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Pyyrand (Jesus my best friend) for the honor of being my best friend like no other is capable of being. It is the most wonderful of all relationships. I extol You in Your loving name. Amen

May your house be filled with joy in the morning and sweet dreams at night. May it be a home where love has come to live. Joseph a son of Jehovah

The Yeah Buts.

 Because of these [sinful] things the [divine] wrath of God is coming on the sons of disobedience [those who fail to listen and who routinely and obstinately disregard God’s precepts] Colossians 3:6 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

We have all experienced the yeah buts.

Someone instructs us to do something we do not want to do and we all come up with the yeah buts. Yeah but _____ as an excuse for not doing as we are told to do.

Someone tells us not to do something and we come back with yeah but__________ for reasons we will do as we like.

The worst offence of course is when we are continuously disobedient unto Jehovahs direction in our life. We do so at our own peril.

If Jehovah directs us to do something it is for our own good or to advance His kingdom.

If Jehovah directs us not to do something it is because it will turn out bad for us or for others.

We will pay for our arrogant disobedience in painful fashion.

I have experienced it and it most certainly was not an enjoyable experience. Sad to say, I was a slow learner and it took decades before submitting to Jehovah with no thought of anything but obedience unto Him.

“Today we are overboard on belief but bankrupt on obedience.” — Author Unknown

Prayer: Please Jehovah Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever) help me, as You always have, to be an obedient child of Yours. I know that Your call to obedience is for my own good as well as for Your honour. It is my greatest joy to bring glory and honor to the one I love the deepest. I humbly request this in the name of Your most obedient son Jesus Christ. Amen

Whatever is beautiful, whatever is meaningful, whatever brings you joy, may you be blessed with an abundance of it this every day this year.

Have You Noticed How Much

 Blessed [morally courageous and spiritually alive with life-joy in God’s goodness] are you when people hate you, and exclude you [from their fellowship], and insult you, and scorn your name as evil because of [your association with] the Son of Man. Luke 6:22 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

Have you noticed how much hate there is in the western world today for those that live Christian lives with Christian morals? We are vilified on social media and socially isolated in every day life. It is like we have some disgusting plague like leprosy. What is truly heartbreaking is when this happens with in the Christian community.

Why do folks hate us so much?

Could it be that seeing us pricks their conscience and they know their lifestyle is wrong?

Could it be that seeing us causes the fire of hate to flame in every molecule of their body and mind because they know that their lifestyle is condemning them to Hell?

From my experience yes, those are the two main reasons for their unjustified hate of those of us that are obedient children of Jehovah.

The further society gets from the truth, the more it will hate those who speak it. George Orwell.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Emet (God of truth) bless me to always speak Your words of truth with wisdom, grace, meekness and fortitude to not back down when challenged by the wicked ones. I sincerely request this in the name of He who is the epitome of truth Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with abundant joy in your heart filled with love and your life overflowing with laughter every day this year.

Study this Book of Instruction

 Study this Book of Instruction continually. Meditate on it day and night so you will be sure to obey everything written in it. Only then will you prosper and succeed in all you do. Joshua 1:8 Holy Bible, New Living Translation

It is imperative that we feast upon Jehovahs guidebook of life in order to be obedient unto His instruction for our lives.

It guides us to succeed in relationships whether they be personal or corporate.

It guides us in how to invest our time and resources properly.

It guides us in our relationship with our Heavenly Love.

It guides us in the proper diet, exercise and manner of rest.

And, of course we require the Holy Spirit to interpret it for us because we are limited by our mental capacities to understand the Spiritual wealth that is hidden from the world that lies with in its pages. We will never learn of all the wisdom contained in its pages no matter how long we study it.

“‘Thinking Christianity’ is thinking by Christians about anything and everything in a consistently Christian way — in a manner that is shaped, directed, and restrained by the truth of God’s Word and God’s Spirit.” — Os Guinness

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rabbi (God our Teacher) for instructing me in the proper conduct that pleases You. As, well, it makes my life so full of integrity, meaning and purpose. I exalt You in the name of He whose words are the true word of truth Jesus Christ. Amen

May your house be filled with joy in the morning and sweet dreams at night. May it be a home where love has come to live. Joseph a son of Jehovah
