It Isn’t by Accident.

be loving like jesus

If your gift is to encourage others, be encouraging. If it is giving, give generously.  Romans 12:8 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation                                                         

We all have the gift of giving. We just need the Holy Spirits discretion in where, who and how much to give. Joseph a son of Jehovah                                           

 As we travel through our days, opportunities will present themselves to us to do good deeds. These are not haphazard. They are pre-ordained gifts from God.

Gifts’ to the man, woman or child on the receiving end of the gift. It may be a word or action you give to them that makes their day.

Perhaps they are having a really bad day and your simple act of kindness and compassion brightens a dark and trying day. It is a gift to you.

Whenever I do a good deed it always makes my heart dance with joy, no matter how simple the act is.

We must offer ourselves to God like a clean, smooth canvas and not worry ourselves about what God may choose to paint on it, but at each moment, feel only the stroke of His brush. Jean Pierre de Caussade
It is a gift to God.

Hopefully the person on the receiving end takes a moment to thank God for the act of kindness.

If they do not know God but know you are a Christian, you act may be the catalyst that nudges them towards God.

Of course we should also praise God both for the opportunity to do good and for the blessings of joy we feel when we perform the act of kindness.

Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace whose imagination is stayed on Thee.
Isaiah 26:3 The Holy Bible, The King James Version

Prayer: I gladly offer You Jehovah my life to use to enrich the lives of others I meet today and every day. I thank you when these opportunities present themselves to me as they enrichen my life when I help others. In the name of our best example of giving of oneself Jesus Christ we pray. Amen.

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

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

No Matter the Enemy.

The Lord your God is with you, a Powerful One Who wins the battle. He will have much joy over you. With His love He will give you new life. He will have joy over you with loud singing. Zephaniah 3:17 The Holy Bible The New Life Version

CHRIST SHOWS HIS STRENGTH

No matter the enemy you are doing battle with, the unconquerable Trio is right there in the thick of it with you.

They are of course: Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit.

Do not think this is a one battle event.

There are addiction battles, health battles, bad disposition battle and relationship battle. These occur over the course of a lifetime.

Some battles are short, some last for decades (I can think of one in my life that took over forty years before our Loves finally annihilated it ).

Some battles will never be won until we reach Heavens Gate.

Some battles we must be submissive to our Holy Kings to fight along side of them for victory to be won.

Some battles we must step back and surrender them to the Heavenly Trio to destroy.

Through them all Jehovah the Refiner is burning off the filth in us and making us the pure children of love He intended for us to be. After each burning off of the dross (eliminating the filth in us) Jehovah, Jesus, the Holy Spirit and the angels in Heaven  dance for joy at seeing us become more refined than the finest gold.

We are constantly being remoulded into the beautiful creation Jehovah intends for us to be. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Gibbor Milchamah (Psalms 24:8 The LORD Mighty In Battle) for blessing me with Your victorious battle skills that You have taught me to use to win battles, for sharing You awesome battle strategies with me so that we win the battle together and for blessing me with the skills, knowledge and You magnificent encouragement to egg me on to victory. I bless You in the name of He who won the greatest battle of all, that over death, Jesus Christ. Amen

Whatever is beautiful, whatever is meaningful, whatever brings you joy, may you be blessed with an abundance of it this every day this year. Joseph a son of Jehovah

I Feel Uncomfortable

We must remember what the Lord Jesus said, ‘We are more happy when we give than when we receive.’ ” Acts 20:35 The Holy Bible The New Life Version

CHRIST FIRST, OTHERS SECOND

Speaking personally, I feel uncomfortable when folks give me things.

On the flip side, I love to give to those who are needy and worthy. I know it gives glory to Christ and brings great joy to the receivers and sometimes brings them into Jehovahs Holy family.

Then, there is the ripple effect.

I have found it is one in ten. One man or woman out of ten that is helped it effects them to the point where they now have a giving heart as well. It is small for sure but over a lifetime those small ripples add up to tsunamis waves of giving.

The difference is that earths tsunamis bring destruction, tsunamis of love bring great love, joy and relief.

“Remember there’s no such thing as a small act of kindness. Every act creates a ripple with no logical end.” — Scott Adams

Now, I have said it numerous times before and it will be said again.

Giving to those who need is different from those who are leeches.

Giving to those in need is giving to someone who through no fault of their own is experiencing difficulties. These folks appreciate the help while trying to help themselves.

The leeches are the lazy, ungrateful ones that demand more, more, more while giving nothing in return. 

Give, but give wisely. Joseph a son of Jehovah

This brings us to another important aspect of giving.

We are not to randomly give (although there is nothing wrong with that, like helping a handicapped man or woman with their groceries to their vehicle or giving up your seat on the bus) our fiances or time.

We are to take it to Jehovah in prayer. He will send the Holy Spirit to guide us where the resources will be used effectively.

If you want the Masters help you must be willing to obey His direction in your life.  Joseph a son of Jehovah

Using this method has brought me to places I would never have gone and done things I would never have done. But the results were incredible beyond my imagination.

Doing these things adds jewels to your crown which Christ will place upon your head when you are in Heavens home.

Another pay off is when you are in desperate time Jehovah gives pay back seven times more than you gave.

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Ha Melech Psalms 98:6 The LORD the King) for blessing me with the most incredible adventure in life that was beyond the wildest imagination. Thank you that we have accomplished so much in this life You have blessed me with. In You fantastic name I praise You. 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

Fills Me Up With

Oh Jehovah ELOHIM YAKOL (God, the Most Able 2 Corinthians 9:8 ) I am exhausted and feel as if this race will never end. It feels as if it has been going on forever and I cannot out run the pain and exhaustion which encompasses every molecule of my life.

Help me to stop trying to out run my pain but rather run the race You have set before me with strength, endurance and gusto.

I have confidence that when I am empty, the Holy Spirit fills me up with high octane super Divine power to be victorious in this race.

I know that this difficulty will not separate us but rather bring us ever closer together.

Thank you for blessing me this day with Your Supreme strength, endurance and joy to continue on with gusto.

I know when I am down, You pick me up, brush me off and cheer me on to victory.

I look forward to the victory crown which my Beloved King shall place upon my head as I cross the finish line at the Gates of Heaven.

I thank you in the name of my most glorious King in which I am honored to run the race He has set before me, Jesus Christ. Amen

DIVINE STRENGTH

Whatever is beautiful, whatever is meaningful, whatever brings you joy, may you be blessed with an abundance of it this every day this year. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Nothing is too Hard for Him.

 Jesus looked at them intently and said, “Humanly speaking, it is impossible. But with God everything is possible.Matthew 19:26 The Holy Bible The New Living Translation

Oh my awesome majestic King, You constantly amaze me with Your supreme prowess.

There have been countless situations where I am at wits end and know not where to turn nor what to do in oh so many difficult circumstances in my service unto You.

Then, I upon my knees, with rivers of tears streaming down my weary cheeks in desperation I call out to You for Your gracious Divine providence.

Then, You compassionately softly answer my prayer, You extinguish the searing sun of frustration boiling in my brain. You either take control of the situation and bring about solutions to these contentious issues or situations or, You guide me on how to resolve them myself. Sometimes, You help me with the resolution or sometimes You have trust in my competency and allow me to resolve them myself when You have kindly supplied me with the wisdom and tools needed for victory.

No matter which method You use my Love, I know Your gentle but firm hand extinguishes the scorching flames with in my mind and replaces them with soft gentle assurance that the situation is under Your control and because You love me, it will always work out for my good.

I thank You in the name of He who always took good care of those under His care (His disciples), Jesus Christ. Amen

THE LORD WILL ANSWER

Christ blesses us with love, peace and joy. May you be blessed with many opportunities to share these with others today.   Joseph a son of Jehovah

When Trouble Comes

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

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.

JEHOVAHS CARE

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 of pain (mental, physical and spiritual) as well as being blessed with His presence during the tornadoes of life, when my life is being ripped apart by unemployment, destruction of relationships. One thing that is the same in each is His Spirit being with me through it all.

The Holy Spirit encourages, reassures and strengthens me through it all. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Elohim Machase Lanu (Psalms 62:8 GOD Our Refuge) for blessing me with Your impenetrable refuge from the fire storms of life that try to burn me to nothing through trials and temptations that come my way.                                                                                                               Thank you that You are my impenetrable refuge when the tsunamis of trouble and worry come crashing down upon me with little to no warning.                                                                            I praise You in the name of He who calmed the seas of trouble in His disciples lives 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

I Will Not Doubt

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.” Proverbs 3:5-6 The Holy Bible, The New Living Testament

trust in God

I will not doubt, though all my ships at sea
Come drifting home with broken masts and sails;
I will believe the Hand which never fails
From seeming evil worketh good for me.
And though I weep because those sails are tattered,
Still will I cry, while my best hopes lie shattered;
I trust in You. I will not doubt, though all my prayers return
Unanswered from the still, white realm above;
I will believe it is an all-wise love
Which has refused these things for which I yearn.
And though at times I cannot keep from grieving,
Yet the pure ardor of my fixed believing
Undimmed shall burn.

I will not doubt, though sorrows fall like rain,
And troubles swarm like bees about a hive;
I will believe the heights for which I strive
Are only reached by anguish and by pain.
And though I groan and writhe beneath my crosses,
I yet shall see through my severest losses
The greater gain.

I will not doubt. Well anchored is this faith,
Like some staunch ship, my soul braves every gale;
So strong its courage that it will not quail
To breast the mighty unknown sea of death.
Oh, may I cry, though body parts with spirit,

I do not doubt, so listening worlds may hear it,
With my last breath.

PRAYER: Thank you  Jehovah Immeka (Judges 6:12 The LORD Is with You)  that You are always there, that You always care.                                                  Thank you that You will never desert me nor leave me.                   I gratefully praise You in the name of my most steadfast friend Jesus Christ. Amen 

No matter if everyone else deserts You, Jesus is the steady rock that You can always depend upon Joseph a son of Jehovah

Do Have Powerful Effects on Others.

 For just as the heavens are higher than the earth, so my ways are higher than your ways and my thoughts higher than your thoughts. Isaiah 55:9 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

I thought this, He has that planned.

One day I felt a strong desire to go to a photo shop and have a lot of positive affirmation cards made out using my photo’s and Bible verses added into them. It was assumed that they would be read every morning to get me off to a positive start to the day.

A few weeks after they had been printed the corona virus hit. At the same time some members of moms church began going through some very difficult times as well as facing the loneliness of isolation.

I convinced mom to drive me to their dwelling place (I have never had a drivers licence) and I would place the card in their mail boxes. Mom added a little gift like a box of chocolates.

After reading the card and the accompanying poem I wrote they called up mom just bawling uncontrollably. Thanking her. The cards gave them a lot of comfort and encouragement.

We did the same for shut in seniors that could not get out shopping (there are huge line ups at all the grocery stores so I would go do their shopping for them while mom sat in the vehicle (her health will not allow her to stand for a hour in the line up).

Now is the time for brothers and sisters in Christs holy family to come together and help each other.

I have gotten mom to make a list and call members of her church every day and just talk with them. Now other members are calling each other and encouraging each other following moms lead. It has a incredible effect on bother the callers and the receivers. This makes us stronger and more united. Those shut ins (especially those in seniors homes where visitors are not allowed and they are confined to their rooms) really appreciate it.

TAKING IT TO OTHERS

Even the simplest acts of love can and do have powerful effects on others. Especially in these difficult frightening times. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you El Marom (Micah 6:6 GOD Most High ) for blessing me with Your guiding hand using Your wisdom which constantly amazes me. I am honoured my Love that You have used me in such a wonderful manner.                                                                                                                                           May many reading this be blessed to follow suit.                                                                                           I give thank and ask in the name of He who constantly confused the wise in His walk on this planet, Jesus Christ. 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 to be shared with others. May you be blessed with plentiful opportunities to share these with those around you today. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Could These Be

BURN LIKE THE SUN

Could these be the signs: When it says in the book of Revelation that we can not see the sun, could this be a reference to the fact that in many cities you can not see the sun because of pollution?

When it says stars will fall from the sky, could that be in reference to satellites falling from the sky?

When it talks about starvation, isn’t there more starvation occurring now then any other time in history?

When it talks about fish disappearing in the oceans, do we not have massive depletion of fish now? In deed who would have thought of sharks as endangered?

When it talks about a certain number of animal species disappearing how many animals are on the endangered list? Who would have thought of the polar bear being on a threatened list?

When it talks about men being lovers of men, do we not have more self centeredness now than at any other time in history (where people only care about themselves)? Is homosexuality not emerging as normal and accepted, even though it is filth that destroys body, soul and spirit (i.e. how come sexual diseases are more rampant in the homosexual community than any other? Why do so many homosexuals need psychiatric counseling because of depression and anger management?)

When it talks about fire coming from the sky and consuming man and beast alike, could they be talking about the super volcanoes?

When it talks about land becoming desert, could it be talking about deforestation?

When it talks about having the number on their hands and head, could they be talking about one world currency with chips implanted in the body like is some northern European nations today? Is that not happening now where countries are talking about having standard for world currency?

When they talk about how people beg to die but cannot not, could they be talking about terminally ill people or old people left in seniors homes alone and unloved that want to die, but doctors keep them alive, maybe to make money off them with their drugs?

Are they not developing micro chips that are very tiny and can easily be inserted into our bodies?

So, what do you think?

Do you believe we are in the end times?

The time is near, which side of the rapture are you going to be on? Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank You Jehovah Shammah (Ezekiel 48:35) – The LORD Is There that even though the clock is quickly ticking towards the final battle I know that You are right here with me, reassuring me that Your hand is guiding me to the rapture so as to evade the terrible punishment that is coming fast to those that live in this wicked worlds system. I pray for the opportunity to guide as many as possible in this system to Your Divine system which leads to eternal life in Heaven instead of Hell. I praise You and humbly request this in the name of my mighty conquering, victorious King Jesus Christ. Amen

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