Focus to See the Light.

weary

 Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me [following Me as My disciple], for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest (renewal, blessed quiet) for your souls. Matthew 11:29 Holy Bible Amplified Version

We all suffer from trials and tribulations, sorrows and snares.

The difference between the ones walking in darkness and those of us that are walking in the light is that we have a Father in Heaven that loves us, cares for us and about us.

We have a choice. We can carry the world on our shoulders, or we can say, “I give up, Lord; here’s my life. I give you my world, the whole world.” –Bruce Larson

They have no one that has the perfect healing touch. Jesus loves you.

Jesus cares. Jesus is always there. Joseph- Anthony: Green

When we suffer the loss of a loved one we can always take our pain and sadness to Jesus. Do not forget how he weeped at His friends grave.

When we have lost our homes do not forget that Jesus was homeless.

When we are sick do not forget the sick Jesus healed.

When we have been betrayed do not forget how one of His own disciples betrayed Him. When our family and or friends reject us because of our walk towards our heavenly home do not forget how Jesus’ own family rejected and bitterly mocked Him.

When we suffer from exhaustion do not forget how exhausted Jesus was from his preaching and healing.

When we are facing death from a slow disease killer do not forget how Jesus knew about the type of death He must suffer.

Because Jesus walked amongst us He has experienced everything we have and so much more.

Be assured, if you walk with Him and look to Him and expect help from Him, He will never fail you. —George Müller

So when we are experiencing our difficulties remember to focus on He who is the light of the world. He will comfort you, heal you, encourage you and walk with you through it all because He loves you.

It is during our darkest moments that we must focus to see the light. –Anonymous

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-‘Ori (the Lord is my Light) for lighting my world with Your Divine love, assurance, comfort and strength in my darkest moments. I praise You for this blessing in the name of the light of the world Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

Satisfy the Heart

heart-at-peace

 In peace [and with a tranquil heart] I will both lie down and sleep, For You alone, O Lord, make me dwell in safety and confident trust. Psalm 4:8 Holy Bible Amplified Bible

Today I see so much anger, depression and stress.

Do you wonder why?

Many say it is because we live in such a fast paced world where folks want instant gratification.

When I walk, sit down and enjoy communion with my Beloved in Gods Cathedral (nature) I experience peace and tranquility such as may be blessed in no other manner.

Many say it is because with the electronic and internet world there is no face to face conversations anymore and society does not nurture personal relationships.

No matter where I am Jehovah is always there and we share casual and deep conversations. He never puts me on hold, is too busy or bored to share communion with me. We enjoy a deep loving, respectful relationship.

Many face deep depression because they have no one to talk with and listen to them or bless them with wise advice.

Jehovah is always there, Jehovah always cares. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Jehovah is always there for me when I need Him. He patiently listens to my cries and when I am exhausted he blesses me with His gentle love ans peace. Then He blesses me with Divine wisdom to resolve all my problems.

Read your Bible about what Jesus experienced when he walked amongst us. There is not one thing you are going through that he has not experienced.

What are you waiting for Child?

Jehovah is waiting for you with open loving arms. Go to Him and He will bless you with Heavenly peace, love and joy.

“Who except God can give you peace? Has the world ever been able to satisfy the heart?” Gerard Majella

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Shalom (The Lord blesses with Peace) for blessing me with peace through the many storms in my life. Thank you with blessing me with Your Heavenly joy that is only nurtured through daily communion with You. Thank you for blessing me with the most awesome love affair there ever was, is and can be. I thank you for these cherished treasures through the Prince of Peace Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

Only if You Let It.

Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee; because he trusteth in thee. Holy Bible , American Standard Version

I am a caregiver for my elderly mother. She is extremely stubborn and independent. Because of health reasons she has lost a lot of her independence. This causes a lot of friction between us. Many times I feel like I am going to explode and I have to get away from her. The only thing to calm me down is a cigarette. As well she is stubborn and refuses to listen to listen to anyone. She is right and the whole world is wrong (even though she does not know what she is talking about). Then when things go south she always blames everyone but herself. I go almost a month without smoking and then she gets into one of her moods and look out. Then I need a cigarette and we do not talk with each other for a few days. This has been going on for three years. Each time I prayed for wisdom on how to handle her and then read an article on how a man was stressed out and was told that the reason for his stress was because only if you let it stress you out it will. Now that sounds reasonable but then how do you handle the situation? Later while reading the Bible this verse suck out to me: Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee; because he trusteth in thee. Holy Bible , American Standard Version

It makes perfect sense.

When stress comes I remove myself from the situation and allow it to drive me to my knees where I belong in prayer. And Jehovah answers my prayer with peace and strength.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Machsi – Lord my Refuge for blessing me with the privilege of entering into Your holy sanctuary where You bless me with peace, healing, comfort and fortitude to carry on in my duties (duty is an act of love) to You and my mother. I praise You in the name of the Prince of Peace Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

 

Cleavet: It has taken a year and a half but mom has finally settled down and there is a lot less problems now. She has even begun going back to church regularly for the first time in forty years. I have almost kicked the nicotine habit and know by Gods grace one day it shall be permanently conquered.

The Size of Your God.

DIVINE STRENGTH

Trials…may come in abundance. But they cannot penetrate into the sanctuary of the soul when it is settled in God, and we may dwell in perfect peace. –Hannah Whitall Smith

The difference between those in the world and those who belong to Christ is that we Christians have the strong hand of the Prince of Peace to walk us though our trials and tribulations while the world has no one and nothing. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Speaking from personal experience, I know both of these statements to be oh so very true. When I was not with Christ (He is always willing to be there for us if we allow Him to be) it seemed as if I was the only one in the universe and the worlds was crushing down upon my shoulder. When I did walk with Him not matter the trails and tribulations He blessed me with peace and strength to battle through them victoriously.

The peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:7 Holy Bible, New King James Version

You can tell the size of your God by looking at the size of your worry list. The longer your list, the smaller your God. –Author Unknown

It is not a sin to worry about things but it is pretty stupid to refuse to lay them at the feet of the best comforter and reassurer there is. Joseph- Anthony: Green

From my experience when I humbly, sincerely take it to Jesus He blesses me with super natural peace every time. Joseph- Anthony: Green Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Shalom (The Lord blesses with Peace) for blessing me with Your healing, calming and reassuring peace through my many fiery trials and tribulations, sorrows and snares. Jesus Christ. Amen. I glorify You in the name of my beautiful Prince of Peace Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

But watch yourselves.

WAVES OF WILD RED FLOWERS IN A MEADOW

. Brothers and sisters, if someone is caught in a sin, you who live by the Spirit should restore that person gently. But watch yourselves, or you also may be tempted. Galatians 6:1 Holy Bible, New International Version

The only one a drunk will listen to is an ex-drunk but watch yourselves they do not get you to return to the bottle when you council them. .

That is why if you see a brother or sister indulging in a sin it is best to go with a least one of Christian who has been rescued from that sin. He or she will see the warning signs of temptation and encourage you to make a hasty retreat. Otherwise you may be dragged into that living hell with the sinning brother or sister.

When confronting a brother or sister in a sin please do not be judgmental with them. That will get them defensive and they will refuse to listen to you. Instead talk with them, guide them to the knowledge of what they are doing, that it is destructive and the proper course of action to take to free themselves of said sin. Again, that is why it is best to take a brother or sister with you who has walked that walk because when they speak they speak from experience. The sinning brother or sister will be more willing to listen to them.

That is why I believe so many councilors and psychiatrists fail: they go by theory instead of experience and their solution is to pump the patient full of drugs instead of dealing with the problem.  

Prayer: Oh please bless me and all other Christian councilors my Beloved Jehovah-Hoshe’ah (The Lord Saves) with Your divine wisdom, grace, meekness and humbleness to guide Your lost little sheep back to You while protecting us from the power of the wicked destroyer satan. I sincerely request this in the name of He who defeated satan on the cross Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

You can Endure It.

flowers caressing blazing red cross

No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it. 1 Corinthians 10:13 Holy Bible, New King James Version

We all have addictions, that is why we need the power of Christ within us to be victorious over them. Joseph- Anthony: Green

We are all addicted to something and many have more that one so please do not behave as if you are the only one suffering from yours. The Bible confirms it with- No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. Those of us who are Christians have the greatest power to conquer them in the power of the Holy Spirit. Now He may heal you instantly like He did my alcoholism or He may guide you to resources to help you conquer it like He did my smoking addiction but He will always be faithful to guide you to the road to recovery.

Do you believe that God is near? He wants you to. He wants you to know that He is in the midst of your world. Wherever you are as you read these words, He is present.–Max Lucado

The temptation will never leave you for good. Sometimes it will be subtle and sometimes it will be strong to return to your addiction but the Holy Spirit will always bless you with knowledge and strength to defeat the devils snare.

“My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” 2 Corinthians 12:9 Holy Bible, New King James Version

Prayer: For the addicted:Oh please merciful Father in Heaven bless me with the Holy Spirits presence in my life to conquer this addiction. I know that it is too strong for me but that nothing is too strong for you. Please guide me to the resources needed to help me with this problem and the strength to be obedient unto your leading.

For the recovered addict: Thank you oh my amazing Father for smashing the chains of my addiction. Please help me to continue to walk in this freedom and bless me with Your powerful strength and wisdom to defeat the wicked one when he comes a knocking. I humbly request this and thank you in the name of He who has forever conquered all demons of addiction Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

This is What They Need.

HOPE IN THE LORD

Whenever I am afraid, I will trust in You. Psalm 56:3 Holy Bible, New King James Version

Recently the news has been broadcasting about an epidemic of depression and suicide. The secular world is lost for answers to this plague. All your marches will produce nothing. All your government speeches sound pretty but are empty of results.

When I am afraid I go to my Beloved in prayer and He guides me to comforting verses in His guidebook to life (the Holy Bible). They comfort, calm and reassure me.

Whenever I am depressed (and we all get depressed from time to time) I go to my Beloved in prayer and He guides me to comforting verses in His guidebook to life (the Holy Bible). They comfort, calm and reassure me.

Whenever I become angry because of an injustice perpetrated against me I go to my Beloved in prayer and He guides me to comforting verses in His guidebook to life (the Holy Bible). They comfort, calm and reassure me.

Whenever I become lonely I go to my Beloved in prayer and He guides me to comforting verses in His guidebook to life (the Holy Bible). They comfort, calm and reassure me.

Whenever I question why I am here I go to my Beloved in prayer and He guides me to comforting verses in His guidebook to life (the Holy Bible). They comfort, calm and reassure me.

The Holy Bible is truly the only guidebook to life we will ever need along with prayer. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Our greatest comfort in sorrow is to know that God is in control. Lynn Thornton

As Christians it is our duty to guide those in the secular world to the Guidebook to life. This is what they need in the secular world but so strongly rejects. Woe is unto them, they have no hope.

We do not understand the intricate pattern of the stars in their courses, but we know that He who created them does, and that just as surely as He guides them, He is charting a safe course for us. Billy Graham

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Ezer (The LORD our Helper) for always being there to help me through my many trials and tribulations, sorrows and snares. If it were not for You my love I would have crashed and burned so many times in my life. I laud You in the name of the greatest whose precious blood made it possible for You to send the most wonderful Helper (the Holy Spirit) Jesus Christ. Amen.

May Jehovah bless you today and every day with His precious love, joy and peace.
