A closer walk with our beloved friend.

In the Stormy Billows


We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance.  And endurance develops strength of character Romans 5:3-4 The Holy Bible, The New Living Testament Version

It is in the storms of life we grow the most. Joseph a son of Jehovah

We grow in dependence upon Jehovah for delivery of our trials and tribulations.

We grow the most in the skills and strength He blesses us with to conquer the storms no matter how much they rage in or lives.

This is why I believe the education system in the west and the momma bears would pamper their children are doing a severe dis-service to their children. By sheltering them through the hard times they nurture spinless, entitled momma boys and girls who are unprepared for the world when they leave the nest. This is the major reason there is so much cry babying in society today in the west. The young feel entitled and expect the government to pamper them like mommy and their teachers did.

“Talents are best nurtured in solitude: character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.” Goethe

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Elohim Ozer Li (Psalms 54:4 GOD My Helper) for blessing me with Your saving help whenever the storms are too great for me to conquer. Thank you for helping me to defeat the raging storms when You know I need to and can defeat them on my own. I praise You in the name of He who calmed the raging storm for His disciples on that lake Jesus Christ. Amen

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

I am an unpaid live in care giver for my aged mother. As well I regularly do volunteer work with a local church group helping working poor establish themselves independently. . I love being in nature. I say the closer we get to nature the more we see Jehovah. We are blessed in this area with many amazing, easy to ride bicycle trails on old railroad lines that takes us all over Southern Ontario.

  1. I have often thought how God is the perfect parent. He doesn’t shield us from consequents of poor decisions or from life’s difficulties. He stands near to forgive and help when we ask. If we as parents and teachers were to analysis God’s parenting style we would make better parents and educators.

    • Oh a big Amen to the last sentence.
      And, our society would be full of mature, respectful adults instead entitled little brats.

    • How is the recovery coming from the flood ? I am still praying for you.

      We just had a bad storm two days ago with two tornadoes touching down not far from here. We are okay.

      • It is good to hear you are ok. We are doing alright, too. Recovering from a flood is slow work but we are getting there. Thank the Lord. Thank you for praying for us. I truly appreciate it. Will do an update soon to let people know how we are doing.

      • I am glad you and yours is alright. I shall continue to pray for youse.

  2. AMEN, brother. We grow in the storm. A good word. Thanks.
