A closer walk with our beloved friend.

When I Sing Your Praises


  Our ancestors trusted in you,and you rescued them. They cried out to you and were saved. They trusted in you and were never disgraced. Psalm 22:4-5 The Holy Bible New Living Translation

One time during a particular tribulation I began to meditate upon on the goodness our Heavenly Beloved has bestowed upon me and oh so many times He was walked with me through the hard times. My heart transformed from one of desperation, and weeping to explosive joy.

Now I understand where it says to sing joyfully during difficult experiences. I understand now how we can rejoice and sing praises in our suffering.

As we suffer we call out to our Beloved. He reminds us of all the times He has rescued us before and it gladdens our heart. We cannot help but sing out in praise and joy songs of adulation. Then we reflect on how He will deliver us from what ever trails and troubles, sorrows and snares we are experiencing now. This leads us to sing ever more exuberantly of joy and love for such an amazing Heavenly Father. Remembering Jehovahs past deliverance blesses us with confidence in His deliverance in the present trouble. Joseph a son of Jehovah

“Trust the past to God’s mercy, the present to God’s love and the future to God’s providence.” St. Augustine of Hippo

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emunah (God is faithful) for reminding me of Your faithfulness to me in my times of difficulty. I praise You in the name of He who saved His disciples during storms at sea, Jesus Christ. Amen

May Gods sunshine always bless you with brightening your day with His love, joy and peace. Joseph a son of Jehovah

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. This is amazing.
    To make a long story short I believe I will see a miracle of healing for someone this week and hope to report back that I did. Either way this person wins, but I just believe I will get to see a true miracle.

    • I am glad to hear that
      It is always special to experience a miracle, whether on the receiving end or being a witness.

      • I said I would report back…
        I did not see the miracle I was hoping for (yet) and believed I would, but did get to see what I’ve hoped and prayed is the beginning of a family restoration. God doesn’t work things out like we think He will.

      • Sorry to have to break this to you but family restoration is seldom ever achieved.

        I sadly know this from personal experience as well as experience with others.

        Be content to know you have all you could do. You cannot force it.

        I will pray for you though.

      • It’s been devastating to watch. I got to witness a discussion that opened up and can only hope it is a seed. I hope I can one day report with miracle after miracle.

        Matthew 10 is real

      • Good morning precious sister.
        The best result is to get into Christian counseling. If they accept it the average amount of time would be at least two years.
        Most times folks refuse to go because they do not want to take responsibility for their actions. They know what they did was wrong, they are just too proud to admit it.
        I have experienced it in my own family and still am. Coming home after serving the Lord for forty years I meet so many of those I grew up with that have gone through heart wrenching sorrow because their parents refuse to reconcile. It does not end well for the parents either. It is beyond sad to see it and to experience it.
        I do not intend to be a Negative Nelly but do not want you to get your hopes up only to be crushed. It has happened to me. I do not want that to happen to you.
        I am praying for you.
