A closer walk with our beloved friend.

In His time, In His Way.



Be still before the Lord; wait patiently for Him and entrust yourself to Him. Do not fret; it leads only to evil. Psalm 37:7-8 Holy Bible, New Living Translation  

When Jehovah gives you a vision or dream, wait for Him to fulfill it. When you go before Him it only leads to disaster.

I did when He gave me the vision of teaching, waited that is.

Instead of just jumping in and beginning to teach English as a Second Language, I patiently took a course and then waited two years before stepping out in His direction at His time.

Yes, I fretted (worried) over whether this is what Jehovah really intended for me to do in service unto Him.

Yes, I fretted (a lot) when He directed me to go China (Not a safe place for Christians to go).

But, as usual, it was all for nothing. Jehovah did direct me where to go and protected me while there. As well, He taught me so much during this time.

Jehovah works in His time, in His way. We, His children, are to go where Daddy leads and do as Daddy wishes us to do. This is the Christian life. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emunah (God is faithful) for teaching me to be patient while I wait to accomplish Your tasks in Your way in Your time. I thank You in the name of He who waited until just the right time to come as a sacrifice for my entry into Your Heavenly family 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

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. Oh gees. 😂
    If this doesn’t have my name all over it. He’s always right on time even in our 1/2 second of doubt and happen to log into a website.

  2. “So You’re really saying not to quit my current job and live in a parking lot?”

    • I do not know if you are serious but there plenty of folks doing just that.

      I lived in some hobo villages while bicycling down the west coast and let me tell you so of those vehicles (trucks and vans) looked very comfy.

      It is a sad disgrace that more and more folks are not being paid a livable wage.

      That is one reason for the protests in Hong Kong.

      Many are living in rooms the size of a bathroom and share the toilet and kitchen with twenty others.

      Where I lived, when laying on the bed my feet could touch the opposite wall. The bathroom was so small I could have a shit while having a shower (literally).
      There was no kitchen.

      It was okay for me because I was only there for a couple of days every six months while renewing my visa but I would not want to live there permanently.

      Would you like me to pray for your situation to improve?

      • I said it as a joke. My circumstances are only my own problem because I do not have patience to wait for what I know is coming. I have a job, can afford groceries, and am living with family who loves me. It’s almost not even worth talking about after reading your comment. I would never turn down prayer, but my situation is not a ‘real’ crisis. My job is not horrible … in fact I love it for the most part … it’s just what it is at the moment.

        I’m getting to see what a big corporation takeover looks like from a tiny, “meaningless in the grand scheme of things” job. I’ve gotten to see so much over the last 5 years … all while trying to get out but have learned so much spiritually and about business.

        I realized the other day I think God isgoing to let me watch the next step … that I don’t necessarily want to see … but who knows.

      • Glad to hear you are not in dire circumstances

      • Also… sorry for writing so much on your beautiful post. But thanks for your response.

      • I enjoy your comments. Thank you

  3. Yesterday, I was reading Ruth and literally just finished “The Lord recompense thy work, and a full reward be given thee of the Lord God of
    Israel, under whose wings thou art come to trust”

    A customer comes up to the desk and says ‘Aw don’t be sad that you have to work. It will be worth it in the end.’

    • At least you have the dignity to have a job. I applaud you for that. And,yes you will be rewarded for it somewhere down the line. I always was. I worked some pretty bad jobs and the Lord used me in them.

      Afterwards He arranged for better living conditions (nothing fancy but comfortable).

      • I’ve always been a caregiver. It seems so silly but I am proud to have this ‘little’ job. I love getting to talk to people (for the most part). Everyone is uniquely different and it’s fun getting to know them and talk to them every day (again… some 😁).

      • Sounds great. I am glad for you

      • I like telling people when God used them. I remembered this comment and post and wanted to thank you for praying for me. A door opened up and it’s always in unexpected ways.

      • You are very welcome.
        When I read your comment about the door opening up in unexpected ways it brought a huge laugh to the heart. That has been oh so true in my walk with my Heavenly Beloved

      • I pray you mean a door has opened up for you recently.

      • Yes! Within the last two weeks “suddenly”. First time I ever just jumped into something without researching everything. Ha

        I’m learning you never can even begin to guess where the doors will lead… except to a thankful heart. 😀

      • Congratulations. I am very glad for you.
        The second sentence is oh so very true.

  4. Psalm 37 is my favorite Psalm. Trusting in God’s timing is not always easy but it’s worth it. Amazing He prepared you to teach in China! 😊
