In Every Aspect of My Life.

  “If any of your lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him.” James 1:5 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

A STOUT HEART

Please my Beloved Heavenly King Jesus send the Holy Spirit to remind me that I am Your free will servant in every aspect of my life.                                                                                      Please bless me with a deep conviction to obey Your every command.                              Please bless me with many opportunities to spend quiet time with You every day.           Please send the Holy Spirit to teach me Your live according to Your way with wisdom, grace, and steadfast duty to You.                                                                                                          I humbly request this in Your majestic name. Amen

The gift of love, the gift of joy, the gift of peace, these are the greatest gifts that can be given. They are given in abundance to all those in Christs family by our Heavenly loving  Father. May you be blessed with plentiful opportunities to share these with those around you today. Joseph a son of Jehovah

That was Going to Sink.

He saw that they were in serious trouble, rowing hard and struggling against the wind and waves. About three o’clock in the morning Jesus came toward them, walking on the water. He intended to go past them, but when they saw him walking on the water, they cried out in terror, thinking he was a ghost. They were all terrified when they saw him. But Jesus spoke to them at once. “Don’t be afraid,” he said. “Take courage! I am here!”  Then he climbed into the boat, and the wind stopped. Mark 6:45-52 The  Holy Bible, The New Living Testament Version

Do you notice Jesus was walking on the very water that was going to sink His Disciples?

He has dominion and power over everything, including your problems, worries and heartaches.

Did you notice when Jesus entered the boat the waves subsided.

So too will your worries, and heartache subside when Jesus enters into your situation. You must call upon Him in faith ( which means trust) that He will help you. Not only that, but, you must be obedient unto the advice He gives you in order to conquer the problem, worry or heartache.

Jesus is the best rescuer in the universe and beyond. Joseph a son of Jehovah

GOD IS IN THE FURNACE WITH US

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Yasha (Lord my Savior) Isaiah 49:26 that whenever I am obedient unto Your wise advice, You rescue me from all trouble, sorrows and snares.                                        I praise You in the name of He whose blood rescued me from eternal damnation Jesus Christ. Amen May you be blessed with peace and joy every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

You can Make

 You can make many plans,   but the Lords purpose will prevail. Proverbs 19:21 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation  

Boy do I know this to be true.

In my early twenties I planned on living in a log cabin by a spring fed spring with great trout fishing in central Ontario on two acres of forested land. Events occurred where Jehovah had other plans for me and all those dreams faded like the morning fog on a hot day.

When doing medical missionary work in the Baja Mexico I met a Mexican woman and we fell in love. We intended upon getting married and buying a small house in the little town we were living in. Events occurred where Jehovah had other plans for me and all those dreams faded like the morning fog on a hot day.

While attending a Chinese church while doing missionary work (even though I was teaching English I was also teaching about Jesus to my students) I met a wonderful Christian Chinese woman. We fell in love. I intended upon becoming a landed immigrant and we were going to get married and buy an apartment (they do not have houses but apartments for the most part in China). Events occurred where Jehovah had other plans for me and all those dreams faded like the morning fog on a hot day. The same thing happened in two different cites I taught at.

Each of these events ripped my heart apart as my dreams vanished like waking from a dream. I felt crushed and as if my life was over. I was angry at Jehovah for allowing this.

Now, in my elder years, I can see His plans for me were very different than mine were.

Yes I still love those women and have fond memories of those times but am grateful for Jehovah for the plans He had for me. I firmly believe I shall meet those women I loved so dearly in Heavens home. If those events had of come to fruition I would never have served Him in the capacity He had intended and accomplished the tasks He had prepared for me to accomplish for Him. Because of this many would not have come to Jesus. I am grateful for this blessing He gave me through my obedience to Him.

We make our plans but Jehovah guides the way (even if it is in the opposite direction then we intend to go). Joseph a son of Jehovah

PATH

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireth (Genesis 22:14) – The LORD Shall Provide for always providing providence in my life to humble, loyally serve You. This is the greatest of honours of all. I thank you in the name of my Heavenly King which is my greatest delight to serve, 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

He is Close To

The Lord is good, a strong refuge when trouble comes. He is close to those who trust in him. Nahum 1:7 New Living Translation

trust in God

Those of us that have walked with Christ for a while know full well the difficulty in trusting in Him. There are times it seems as if there is nothing but trouble a woe in our lives. It seems as if the world is crushing down on us and we are going to explode. We cry out unto Jehovah but He is silent. This is the most difficult time to trust in Him. Even those of us that have walked the trail for a long time have at times difficulty trusting in Him during crushing crises.

That is okay though.

As long as we call out unto Him, trusting He will answer (and He always does). For me I have experienced Jehovah delivering me from the tsunami as well as being blessed with His presence during the tornadoes of life. One thing that is the same in each is His Spirit being with me through it all. He encourages, reassures and strengthens me through it all.

No matter the storm, Jesus is right there walking through it with us. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Hoshe’ah – ( The Lord Saves ) – Psalm 20:9 for blessing me with Your salvation from the ravages of the tsunamis and tornadoes of life. In deep awe and appreciation I do thank You in the name of He whose blood saved me from the burning fires of Hell, 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. Joseph a son of Jehovah

The Best Peace Treaty

  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 4:7 Holy Bible New Living Translation

The best peace treaty there can ever be is the one between you and Jehovah.    

The only way to accomplish this is to surrender your will to His. We are to do as He suggests. Jehovah is too honorable to demand, He is respectful and asks. We refuse to obey at our own peril.  When we surrender our all to Him, He will bless us with peace, comfort, security and assurance.               

OBEY GODS WORD                                        

 Going our own way or going with the crowd only condemns you to a life of confusion, depression, worry, anger and fear.             

 “Being at peace with yourself is a direct result of finding peace with God.”  Olin Miller

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Shalom (the God of Peace) for blessing me with Your Heavenly Divine peace which no other can compare. I exalt You in the highest in the name of the Prince of Peace 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

What are You Willing to Pay?

HE GIVES ABUNDANTLY

Wisdom is supreme; therefore get wisdom. Though it cost all you have, get understanding. Proverbs 4:7, New International Version

What are you willing to pay for a supreme loving relationship?

God says that we are to seek the kingdom of God first and He will add unto you (which means He will bless you).

So my question is: What are you willing to pay for the privilege of having the preeminent privilege of a true love relationship with God?

Are you willing to walk away from you job?

Are you willing to walk way from your family (Now I don’t believe that means to use this as an excuse for a divorce. That’s not possible as God hates divorce.) But, are you willing to walk away from your parents and siblings?

Are you willing to walk away from your friends?

You see the cost is guaranteed to be high. So will the reward be.

Are you willing to sacrifice your desires for the desires of Christ?

Above all the grace and gifts that Christ gives to his beloved is that of overcoming self. Francis of Assisi

Prayer: I know oh Jehovah Kanna (The Lord is Jealous) – Ex 34:14 that You are a jealous God that desires to have no one above You because that makes them or it an idol which takes away from loving You. Thank You for teaching me this and for empowering me to cast aside anything and everything that attempts to upsurge You. I thank You in the name of He who surrendered His own life to do Your will Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Are You Willing To

CHRIST FIRST, OTHERS SECOND

Those who belong to Christ Jesus have nailed the passions and desires of their sinful nature to his cross and crucified them there. Since we are living by the Spirit, let us follow the Spirit’s leading in every part of our lives. Galatians 5:24-25 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

In order for us to have a deep relationship with Jehovah first we must sacrifice the most important thing in our lives, we must sacrifice ourselves. Self is the opaque veil that hides the face of God from us. It can be removed only in spiritual experience, never by mere instruction.A. W. Tozer

Are you willing to perform that difficult sacrifice?

Let’s face it, without Christ everything we do we do for ourselves isn’t it ?

In our relationships isn’t it really all about ourselves?

Oh we may be dedicated husbands or wives, we may be dedicated parents, but what are our motives?

Isn’t it to satisfy a need to be loved and respected?

When we have all the latest toys isn’t it to satisfy ourselves or to impress people so as to inflate our ego?

On the other hand when we sacrifice ourselves unto God we put Him first.

Christ first, others second, self last is every Christians motto. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Now why would we do something stupid like that you ask?

Every Christian will reply it is in gratitude for His deep divine love for us.

Now, that does not sound stupid does it? 

See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! 1 John 3:1 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Only one life, so live it well, And keep your candle trimmed and bright; Eternity, not time, will tell The radius of that candle’s light. —Miller

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever) Psalms 10:16 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation for blessing me with the honor of being Your humble, loyal servant. Thank you Holy Spirit for teaching me how to always put my Beloved King first and for blessing me with the strength to do so. I exalt You my Holy Beloved in Your majestic name. Amen

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

Me First Puts You Last.

SATANS TRAP

What causes fights and quarrels among you? Don’t they come from your desires that battle within you? You desire but do not have, so you kill. You covet but you cannot get what you want, so you quarrel and fight. You do not have because you do not ask God. When you ask, you do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, that you may spend what you get on your pleasures.                                                                                      You adulterous people, don’t you know that friendship with the world means enmity against God? Therefore, anyone who chooses to be a friend of the world becomes an enemy of God. Or do you think Scripture says without reason that he jealously longs for the spirit he has caused to dwell in us? But he gives us more grace. That is why Scripture says: “God opposes the proud but shows favor to the humble.” Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Come near to God and he will come near to you. Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded. Grieve, mourn and wail. Change your laughter to mourning and your joy to gloom. Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up James 4:1-10 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation.

Is it not true, this is what causes so many fights today, the feeling that you are the center of the universe? Because of this, you feel no qualms about stepping all over everybody else because you think you are better than anyone else. You refuse to see anyone else’s point of view. You are rude because again, you think you are the center of the universe. Maybe you are to momma and or granma, but not to the rest of us. Grow up and be a man or woman. Learn to respect others.

How about your relationship with God?

In your communion with Him do you have the gimme, gimme attitude?

Are your prayers centered around yourself? Then you cry baby because God does not give you everything you demand.

So many times I have encountered people who say they don’t believe in God (I say they say they don’t believe in God because I believe we all deep down we all know He exists. Many just refuse to accept Him because He will not give them their every desire like spoiled children and because they are haughty and refuse to submit to anyone). When I ask them why, they reply that it is because He has not answered their prayers. When asked what their prayers are they are always self centered.

Of course God will not answer those prayers (Now there is nothing wrong with asking for Gods help or guidance. That is what He wants us to do.).

My prayer is: Not my will but Thy will be done my God. Show me where You want me to go, teach me what You want me to do. May my words and actions bring glory and praise to You and may they lead the lost little sheep to You.Joseph a son of Jehovah

Now what is friendship with the world?

I believe it is self seeking pleasures, whether it be booze, drugs, sex or commercialism. Again, it’s all about you.

That is the life of a loser. Their life is left with a void that they do not understand why. The reason is because they do not have the heart of a servant of the most regal of kings, Jesus Christ.

The happiest people I have ever met are also the humblest.Joseph a son of Jehovah

Humble: not proud or haughty : not arrogant or assertive Webster’s Dictionary

I love being humble and yes most days I am very joyful (Happiness depends upon physical stimulation, joyfulness depends upon Jehovahs love beating in your heart).

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El SIMCHAH GIYL (God my Exceeding Joy) for blessing me with exceeding joy as I nurture our loving relationship which is the most joyful experience there is. I applaud You in the name of He who brings the light of joy to my heart 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.   Joseph a son of Jehovah

One of the Most Important Things

city shrounded in mist in the mountains seen through the forest Hong Kong-crop

Teach me to do your will, for you are my God. May your gracious Spirit lead me forward on a firm footing. Psalm 143:10 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation.

One of the most important things learned in life is that our greatest lessons are learned from our failures.

Just look up any invention and find out how many times the inventor failed before finally having success.

When we mess up we fess up and Jehovah forgives us, picks us up and tells us okay, you messed up, now learn your lesson and continue on towards you maturity in your walk towards Heaven.

If you have not learned your lesson, do not worry, Jehovah will allow it to be repeated until it is learned.

I believe failure is the greatest tool the Holy Spirit uses to teach us. Joseph a son of Jehovah

The more we learn from our failures and how the Holy Spirit guides us to success from them them more we become firmly established upon the path to Heaven the Holy Spirit is guiding us on. Joseph a son of Jehovah

That is one of the greatest crimes parents and teachers commit with children. They do not let them learn from their failures.

Prayer:Thank you Holy Spirit Rabbi (God our Teacher) for blessing me with Your wise, powerful and effective manner of teaching me. May it always help to evolve my relationship with my loving Heavenly Father, Jehovah loving big brother Jesus and You the most amazing Teacher ever closer and stronger.                                                                                                                 I give thanks and humbly ask of these blessings in the name of the best Teacher 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

Do You Experience It Too?

JEHOVAH ALWAYS SUPPLIES

 

 A good man obtains favor from the LORD, but the LORD condemns a crafty man. Proverbs 12:2, New International Version

You’re not as smart as you think.

Is it just me or do you experience it too?

It seems as if everyone is out for the con. Many merchants try to sell you their products promising a new and improved you. Yet even after spending a lot of money, you are the same you.

Where I live almost everything is pirated. Oh sure it will have the logo on it and the salesman or woman will swear it is original, but after careful examination you discover it is fake.

How about someone who pretends to be your friend, just because they want to con you into giving them something you own.

Again, here it is important to learn English. The locals all pretend to be your best friend as long as you are willing to teach them for free. When you smarten up and justify inform them you expect to get paid, they look at you like you are crap and then throw you away like yesterdays garbage?

Does it ever make you want to throw your hands up and quit being a nice guy or girl?

Please do not give up.

The important thing to remember is that God promises to reward us for our behavior.

If we do good we receive good, if not in this life, in our eternal life in Heaven.

If we do bad, we have fiery coals of retribution poured upon us. Again, if not in this life, than in the eternal life in Hell.

This is a warning and a blessing.

 

Which are you going to reap?

As I have observed, those who plow evil and those who sow trouble reap it. Job 4:8  The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. 2 Corinthians 9:6 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Which crops are you sowing, the crops of righteousness or, the vile filthy wicked crops of the devil?

Prayer: Please Jehovah El Shaddai (God who is sufficient for the needs of His people) give me the strength to always walk the walk of the righteous and not give up in living a holy life dedicated to You. In the name of our great leader Jesus Christ I pray. Amen

(editors note: this was written when I was a teacher in China which was a few years ago)

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