The Greatest Make Over

work-in-progress

 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come 2 Corinthians 5:17 The Holy Bible, The New  Living Translation

How would you like the greatest make over?

When we give ourselves to Jesus He will slowly remove the old ugly you and create a new beautiful you.

Now this is not referring to making you into a super model.

No.

You will be created into a new beautiful saint.

Saint: one of God’s chosen and usually Christian people Webster’s Dictionary.

Now this will not happen over night. For some it will happen quickly, while for others it will take longer. But, the wonderful thing is that your transformation will be a work in progress until we reach Heaven. The Holy Spirit will be crushing and smashing the filth in us to be replaced by the heart and mind that is transforming into a oneness with Christ. Sometimes that will be painful. When we come out of the transformation though, we will be more beautiful than ever imagined.

Of course we will get our final beauty treatment when we get to Heaven and become transformed into Heavenly bodies.

Sound good?

Then why not give your heart to Jesus and join our Christian family.

“I advise you to obey only the Holy Spirit’s instructions. He will tell you where to go and what to do, and then you won’t always be doing the wrong things your evil nature wants you to. For we naturally love to do evil things that are just the opposite from the things that the Holy Spirit tells us to do, and the good things we want to do when the Spirit has His way with us are just the opposite of our natural desires” (Galatians 5:16,17) The Holy Bible, New Living Testament.

Belonging to Jehovahs family is belonging enjoying the supreme love affair. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank You Jehovah-Bara (The Lord Creator) Isaiah 40:28 for sending the Holy Spirit to preform the difficult task of molding this sometimes challenging creation of Yours into the beautiful creation You intend for me to become. I praise You in the name of He whose blood is the catalyst for this amazing metamorphism 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.

You Want to See Some

Christ, WILL LEAD

Open my eyes to see the wonderful truths in your instructions. ” Psalm 119:18 The Holy Bible, New Living Translation

You want to see some amazing things?

When you read the Bible God can reveal some pretty amazing things He has done.

And, you know what?

When you give your life to Him and trust Him He will do incredible things for you as well. It is team work though.

First you have to believe Him and trust Him.

Second you must read His instruction manual for your life. When He reveals something to you, write it down. Later after prayer, contemplate the special secrets He has shown you. I say secrets because He will only share them with men and women who trust Him.

Third again in trust you must trust Him and obey what He has advised you to do. I say advised because God NEVER tells you to do anything. He respects your free will in your life.

“For God is working in you, giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases him. ” Philippians 2:13 The Holy Bible, New Living Translation

Try reading the Bible every morning for a month and writing down the thoughts that come to you and take action on them. See how it affects your day to day decisions.

We have not received the spirit of the world but the Spirit who is from God, that we may understand what God has freely given us. 2 Corinthians 2:12 The New International Version

Instruct a wise man and he will be wiser still; teach a righteous man and he will add to his learning. Proverbs 9:9 New International Version

Finally, remember your manners. Say thank you to our loving gracious God for all the wonderful gifts He has given us

I will praise the Lord at all times. I will constantly speak His praises” (Psalm 34:1) The Holy Bible, Amplified Version.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah GELAH RAZ ( the God of the Revealer of Mysteries) for blessing me with Your amazing wisdom in such a manner that a simple child like I can understand it because my heart, mind and body is devoted to You. I praise You in the name of He who spoke confusing truth to those who were willingly ignorant Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with the gift of love, the gift of peace, the gift of joy. May you be blessed with numerous opportunities to share these gifts with others today.

How Great of an Ambassador are You?

FOLLOWING CHTISTS EXAMPLE

 We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors … We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God. 2 Corinthians 5:20 New International Version

Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. 1 Peter 3:15 New International Version

Do you know you are Gods ambassador?

When people know you are a Christian they will judge Christianity by you actions and words. Just as you are an ambassador for your country when you travel abroad, so to are you Jesus’ ambassador your every waking moment.

You are Christs ambassador. Live like one. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: I am honored and humbled by the awesome responsibility you have given me as Your representative Jehovah. Please always provide me with the tools necessary to accomplish this important task. In the name of Jesus Christ I pray. 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 Simple Easy Way to Riches

RICHES OF THE HEART

 How would you like to be rich and contented?

How would you like to have a fulfilling life?

How do you attain this you ask?

Begin with assessing your heart.

Are you so caught up in the “Keeping up with the Jones” you do not have time to enjoy what you have?

Is your pursuit of money and all its trapping enslaving you to the point where you neglect your service to God and spending quality time with your family.

Remember the Cat Stevens song “Cats in the cradle and the silver spoon”? The father was so busy he neglected his son. Then when he was old and retired his son didn’t have time to spend with his child. That’s when he realized his mistake and understood he should have spent time with his family. Try spending quality time with your wife (or husband every day), time with your children every day.

Get involved with community work. I loved my time volunteering at a local hospital and still cherish it even now, thirty years later.

Don’t forget “It is better to receive than to get.”

When you give of your time and effort you become rich in the heart. That is when God will shower you with His wonderful blessings.

Satisfy us in the morning with your unfailing love that we may sing for joy and be glad all our days. Psalm 90:14 New Living Bible

From David learn to give thanks for everything. Every furrow in the Book of Psalms is sown with the seeds of thanksgiving. Jeremy Taylor

“The blessing of the LORD, it makes rich, and he adds no sorrow with it” (Prov. 10:22) New Living Translation.

Do you love to go shopping?

Do you have to have the latest clothing (even though after you buy it a lot of times it looks weird and you wouldn’t wear it for a Halloween costume)?

Do you have to have the latest toys to be happy?

You know, I remember before Christmas (which is “supposed” to be all about giving) being constantly bombarded by commercials on TV about how happy we would be if we had to have the latest toy. Of course on Christmas Day after gleefully playing with the toys for a while we became bored with them and they sat there gathering dust. Then what?

Remember in the seventies when everyone had to have a pet rock and you paid all that money to have one?

How much do you play with it today? (Yes kids, many of your parents were that stupid to buy a “pet rock”)

Do you have to go out and buy more to be happy?

What a never ending stupid circle of emptiness. You are a dead man walking. Sure your body is alive, but there is a huge emptiness in your heart, for all intense purposes your heart is dead. Welcome to the world of consumerism. Isn’t it fun?

1 Timothy 5:6: “She that lives in pleasure is dead while she lives.” The American Standard Bible .

The most miserable people I have met are the ones that have all the toys. The most happy and contented ones are the ones that are rich in their hearts. Which one do you choose?

Be sure to fear the LORD and serve him faithfully with all your heart; consider what great things he has done for you. 1 Samuel 12:24 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

You will be made rich in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God.2 Corinthians 9:11 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

May my both my hands always be open. One hand to receive my Heavenly Beloveds blessings, the other to share them. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Our gracious and loving God please fill my heart and mind with the most important treasure of all, knowing Your awesome love and having You in my life. As I am filled with Your glorious riches please help me become even more richer. Guide me on where and how to share Your Magnificent love with others. Teach me what to say and do to reveal Your incredible love for all. In the ones name who loved us so much He willingly dies for us Jesus Christ we pray. Amen.

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

Heavenly Father

BE STILL

Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done.  Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-7  The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Here is a great prayer to contemplate upon when the rough waters of life come crashing down upon you.

Heavenly Father
I may not understand how everything will work out, but I trust you.
I don’t see a way, but I know you will make a way.
I have faith at this very moment you are touching hearts, opening doors, and lining up the right break and opportunities.
Things look dark and bleak now, but I have faith that my dawn is coming!
In Jesus’ name, Amen! Anonymous

Why not write this down and carry it with you so that it will be with you when the storms of life come thundering upon you.

I do not know where life I am going in life but rather follow the one that is leading me, His name is Jesus. Joseph a son of Jehovah

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

What Will Happen To?

LET ME SHOW KINDNESS

 The godly can look forward to a reward, while the wicked can expect only judgment. Give freely and become more wealthy; be stingy and lose everything. The generous will prosper; those who refresh others will themselves be refreshed. If you search for good, you will find favor; but if you search for evil, it will find you! Trust in your money and down you go! But the godly flourish like leaves in spring. Those who bring trouble on their families inherit the wind. The fool will be a servant to the wise. The seeds of good deeds become a tree of life; a wise person wins friends. If the righteous are rewarded here on earth, what will happen to wicked sinners? Proverbs 11:23-31 Holy Bible New Living Translation

One day while volunteering with a Christian organization delivering furniture to the needy we delivered furniture to welfare bums. They were so lazy they refused to even carry the free blankets used to keep them warm. They were ungrateful.

But, you know what else they were?

Very sad and ashamed .

It was because they knew their lifestyle was wrong not because of us. We were respectful and friendly with them. Listening to them talk amongst themselves we hear them constantly brag about themselves while drinking and smoking cigarettes. This is vanity and it comes from a selfish heart.

But the sad thing is that: When you surround yourself with yourself you end up with nobody but yourself. That is a very lonely place to be. Joseph a son of Jehovah

They were living a destructive lifestyle and it was only destroying themselves.

For we must all stand before Christ to be judged. We will each receive whatever we deserve for the good or evil we have done in this earthly body. 2 Corinthians 5:10 Holy Bible New Living Translation

Later we did deliver furniture to low income folks who were very grateful so it more than evened out for being a rewarding day knowing that we helped the truly needy.

And, because we are Christians and those we helped were not, we gave glory to Jesus and by His grace used this as a conduit to guide them to Him. And don’t forget to do good and to share with those in need. These are the sacrifices that please God. Hebrews 13:16 Holy Bible New Living Translation

There is a difference between those in need and those who are too lazy to support themselves. Supporting the later is a waste of the resources Jehovah has given you to help those who are truly in need. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Ghmolah (The God of Recompense) for the assurance that the wicked will receive their just rewards, if not here while on earth then definitely in eternity in Hell. Please bless them with wisdom to see the errors of their ways and to repent of them. I praise You and humbly request this in the name of the Supreme Judge 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

Why do You Give?

CHRIST FIRST, OTHERS SECOND

Whatever you give is acceptable if you give it eagerly. And give according to what you have, not what you don’t have. 2 Corinthians 8:12 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

We are bombarded with feel good stories on the TV news of giving to help the poor, giving to help those with sicknesses and disease.   

BUT, what is at the heart of the giver?                            

Do they genuinely give because of their concern or do they give to feel good and to be prideful on social media look at me, look at me. Or to brag to friends, family and co-workers? Do they participate to be a part of the crowd or because they are peer pressured to give?                         

Yes the Lord loves a cheerful giver BUT, we must first take it to Him in prayer where to give, how much to give and when to give. Then, we will be giving to please the Lord which is the only reason any Christian should give.                             

Give joyfully and thankfully to the Lord in abundance as a sacrifice of love and appreciation as He has given in abundance sometimes with great cost (like the cross) to you.   

Why do you give? 

Just as I have one hand open to receive my Beloved Jehovahs blessings, my other hand is open to sharing them with those in need. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh (God supplies) for blessing me with numerous opportunities to share with those in need. I praise You in the name of He who gave His blood for my salvation 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
