Captain of This Ship

 Please forgive me Jehovah ELOHIM YAKOL (God, the Most Able 2 Corinthians 9:8 ) for allowing my thoughts to foolishly stray and see storms instead of keeping me focus on the helmsman that steers the ship through the storms.                                           

 Please Holy Spirit help me to have trust in my strong, capable Captain of this ship, Jesus Christ. When I focus on He who has navigated so many through tremulousness hurricanes successfully it brings peace, confidence and courage to face the crashing waves.                                                                                                   

 I give thanks and sincerely request this in the name of the Captain of my lifes ship, 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

Have Beaten Me Down.

The Lord is my strength and song. He is the One Who saves me. He is my God and I will praise Him. He is my father’s God and I will honor Him. Exodus 15:2 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

   My Beloved Father because hard times have come right now and have beaten me down. I have tried all avenues I can think of to no avail so of course I do what should have been done right from the out set I humbly come before You my love with my petition:

Please bless me with wisdom, mine is feeble compared to Your Divine superior wisdom.

Please bless me to send the Holy Spirit to bless me with discernment. He knows best how to teach me so I will understand and blesses me with the strength and fortitude to follow through on His Divine wisdom.

I thank you my Love for blessing me with this circumstance because it teaches me and reinforces in me to always turn to You first, listen obey and trust Your guidance.

Please forgive me for being so arrogant as to foolishly believe this situation can be best resolved by my feeble wisdom and strength. Through this experience my Love it draws us ever closer together which is the best blessing of all.

It is in the best Guidance Councillors name, Jesus Christ. I pray. Amen

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

Even Though We Cannot See It.

 That is why we never give up. Though our bodies are dying, our spirits are being renewed every day. For our present troubles are small and won’t last very long. Yet they produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs them and will last forever! So we don’t look at the troubles we can see now; rather, we fix our gaze on things that cannot be seen. For the things we see now will soon be gone, but the things we cannot see will last forever. 2 Corinthians 4:16-18 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

The wonderful thing about being a Christian is that when we are tired and being at the point of throwing up our hands and giving up, the Holy Spirit comes along and blesses us with Divine strength to continue on.

When looking back on my previous troubles, most looked so huge they were going to overwhelm me but through the Holy Spirits help they were solved and they were no where near as they looked at the time.

In going through these troubles we produce glory for Jehovah for His deliverance. Folks see us and think that is it for us and Jehovah rises us from the ashes of defeat to the glory of victory only through His providence. That leaves those in the world completely confused.

We look where we cannot see. We look for Heaven and believe that is our eternal home even though we cannot see it. When we trust Jesus at His word and look forward to a wonderful Heavenly home He has prepared for us and our troubles look so small and insignificant. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emunah (God is faithful 1 John 1:9, 2 Thessalonians 3:3 ) for being so faithful so as to never leave me nor forsake me. That my life is in Your strong, gentle hands at all times. In reflection I see with You by my side those big problems with nit so big after all. I thank you in the name of He who reassured His disciples during some pretty tough times, 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

There is Only One Cure

 So don’t worry about tomorrow Matthew 6:34 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Every one of us has it: the worry thief.

We worry about family, we worry about our health, we worry about our country, we worry about our finances. The list just goes on and on.

And what is the result of this?

It destroys our mental and physical health.

There is only one cure and His name is Jesus. When we trust Jesus and place all of our cares into His loving hands He calms the storms around us.

He has done it for me. I used to be the worry wort king, not any more.

Why not give Him a try?

Jesus always provides the solutions for all of our problems. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Shammah (Ezekiel 48:35 The LORD Is There ) for always being there with me every step of my life. Even though I walked through unknown terrifying territory, as I learned to place my fragile hand in Yours, I learned to have confidence in You. This has blessed me with peace and assurance every day of my life and will all the way until reaching Your Heavenly home. I praise You in the name of He who walked through powerful storms and darkest nights with His beloved disciples, Jesus Christ. Amen

May Christ bless you with love, joy and peace today and every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

 Our Hearts Dance With

 Weeping may last through the night but joy comes with the morning. Psalm 30:5 Holy Bible New Living Translation

When we are sad, discouraged and or heavy burdened it seems as if clouds of darkness envelope us in the darkest of darkness.

Yet, when the Lord come to help us, encourage us and lifts that burden from our shoulders when we surrender to them, the dark clouds dissipate and flutter away. They are replaced with the sunshine of Jehovahs love and joy which make our hearts dance with delight and praise.

“The greater my knowledge of the goodness and grace of God on my life, the more likely I am to praise Him in the storm.” Matt Chandler

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Immeka (Judges 6:12 The LORD Is with You) for blessing me with Your kind, loving presence through the storms in my life. I would never have made it without You. I praise You in the name of He who lovingly rescued His disciples from the raging storm 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

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

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

You Need the Second and Third Part

NOT TRY, TRUST                         

You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you, all whose thoughts are fixed on you! Isaiah 26:3 The Holy Bible The New Living Translation                      

You need the second and third part before you are blessed with the first part.  

The next time you are experiencing any problem begin with the third part. The third part is where your thoughts are fixed upon Jehovah. Reflect back on past experiences where He has come to your help. Thank Him for those blessings.  

Then comes the second part. After meditating upon the third part, put your complete and total trust in Jehovah to come to assist you with what ever problem you are encountering.

Sometimes, most times, this will require action on your behalf. He will not solve your problem alone. You have to put some effort into it as well. Some times He will resolve the problem for you with no action required upon your behalf.     

When you do this you will be blessed with the first part, which is peace.

Trusting anyone other than Jesus is living in a fools paradise. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah Ori (Psalms 27:1 The LORD My Light) blaze Your divine light into my soul and spirit to always follow the path that is lighted before me by Your brilliance. I humbly beseech You in Your magnificent name. Amen May

Christ bless you with love, joy and peace today and every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Are You Going to Drown?

FOLLOW JESUS

Immediately Jesus made the disciples get into the boat and go on ahead of him to the other side, while he dismissed the crowd. After he had dismissed them, he went up on a mountainside by himself to pray. Later that night, he was there alone, and the boat was already a considerable distance from land, buffeted by the waves because the wind was against it. Shortly before dawn Jesus went out to them, walking on the lake. When the disciples saw him walking on the lake, they were terrified. “It’s a ghost,” they said, and cried out in fear. But Jesus immediately said to them: “Take courage! It is I. Don’t be afraid.” “Lord, if it’s you,” Peter replied, “tell me to come to you on the water.” “Come,” he said. Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus. But when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink, cried out, “Lord, save me!” Immediately Jesus reached out his hand and caught him. “You of little faith,” he said, “why did you doubt? Matthew 14: 23-31 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation.

When we take our eyes off of Jesus we are heading for spiritual fall. Joseph a son of Jehovah

What can take our eyes off of Jesus?

Which on of these categories do you fall into: there is problems in my family ( instead of fretting about these problems and being a dingbat and trying to fix them yourself, why not do the wise thing and give it over to Jesus. He will send the best guidance councilor, the Holy Spirit to help you.),

I need money. I don’t think there has been a time since money was made when people didn’t have this concern. Again rely on Jesus to supply your needs. Didn’t He promise He would take care of us when He said:” Seek you first the Kingdom of God and all these things will be added to you.”

I’m sick. Now this is the time to get into deep relationship with God because that is when you are weak and through His divine strength He will help you. He may not cure you but give you the strength to endure it.

When we keep our eyes focused on Jesus He will give us everything we need to handle any crisis.

Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need. (Hebrew 4: 16 New Living Translation)

You know, one time I was going through the most painful experience in my life. It was recovering from a terribly abusive relationship. In my deep anguish I, a broken man, sobbed to Jesus to come and rescue me from this pit of hell. Through an internet Pen Pals site and a Christian radio program I noticed while searching the internet (Focus on the Family I was introduced to loving caring Christian councilors that helped lift me out of that hell and heal me. I am forever indebted to both them and my wonderful Jesus for bringing them into my life at that moment.

Now my whole commitment is unto Jehovah God our beloved Abba.

The greatest honor is to be a servant of the greatest king, Jesus Christ. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Ori (the Lord is my Light) Psalm 27:1 for blessing me with being the bright light that guides my life. May I follow it all the way to Heavens Gate. I praise You in the name of the light of the world Jesus Christ. Amen

“Now set your heart and your soul to seek the LORD your God” (1 Chron. 22:19). New Living Translation

May the light of Christs love shine brightly in your heart today and every day Joseph a son of Jehovah

Have you been there yet?

GOD IS IN THE FURNACE WITH US

I want to know Him and the power of His resurrection and the fellowship of His sufferingPhilippians 3:10  The Holy Bible, The New Transaltion Version

Have you been there yet?

You know, have you walked through the valley of Hell. A place of fire and torment.

I have. It was during a toxic relationship. The person was terribly abusive, mean spirited,selfish and cruel. I stayed believing I could help this person. Of course they must want to resolve their issues and take action themselves. This person did not want to change their behavior. Finally I walked away.

Then, came another time of hell, the time of recovering from the abuse. I kept on calling out to God, but He was silent.

Thankfully God did direct me to the resources needed to recover. It took a year.

Through that time I developed a very deep and personal relationship with God. There was no other way for this relationship to exist except my going through the hell first to get rid of the toxic relationship that put a chasm between us.

In time the wounds were healed and my spirit resurrected into the family of Christ.

If you are going through the fire right now perhaps it in necessary to burn off bad habits or beliefs.

My trying to serve this abusive person prevented me from serving God. So, He just stepped back and allowed the abusive person to do their worst (a boy did they do a job on me) to burn off my feeling of obligation to them. Once the relationship ended, then came the healing.

Through the healing came a deep love for and respect for God.

So too is it possible for you.

If you are going through that hell, whether it be an addiction or toxic relationship or health or financial problems perhaps it is because you need to have something burned off that restricts you from your relationship with God.

Yes definitely get help.

I am so happy I did.

They helped open my eyes to a lot of things that has helped me ever since. At the completion of this time your spirit will be resurrected into a close relationship with God.

Believe me it hurts God too to have to step back and watch you go through this, but it is necessary.

Even though it hurts our Beloved to watch, He does step back and allow us to go through Hell to get us into Heaven. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) Judges 6:12 for blessing me with walking through my time of torment and agony. Thank you for healing me when You finally had enough and guided me away from the tormentor. I would never had made it without You. With my deepest gratitude I thank you in the name of the greatest Healer of all, Jesus Christ. Amen

May love be in your life, may hope be in your heart and may peace be in your every day walk with Christ. Joseph a son of Jehovah
