Has Gone Through Suffering and Testing

Since he himself has gone through suffering and testing, he is able to help us when we are being tested. Hebrews 2:18 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Many folks feel it is senseless to come to Christ with our worries, hurts and problems because He is the big god in Heaven and does not care about mere mortals.

Yes He does.

There is not one crisis that you encounter that Christ has not been through.

He experienced the death of a good friend, was betrayed by another. He experienced homelessness and hunger. He was rejected by loved ones and was hated by the politically correct, even though He was trying to help them. He helped so many yet so few thanked Him. Even then, it was outsiders that thanked Him and not those in His national family ( the Jews ) . And of course, let us not forget the temptation in the wilderness when He was weak, hungry and exhausted.

No matter the situation, Jesus has been there, Jesus cares and when you depend upon Him, He will guide you through them all. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: It is with the greatest gratitude that I thank you Jesus Immanuel (God is with us John 15:1-27 ) that You have suffered like we do and so much more. Because of this, who better to run to when lifes tragedies come crashing down upon us.

Thank You.

Thank you for always being there.

Thank you for Your gentle, soft reassurance during these difficult times.

Thank you for Your encouragement, strength and guidance in resolving these catastrophes.

It is in Your magnificent loving name I exalt You. Amen May you always run to the loving arms of Christ when calamity comes a crashing through your door. Joseph a son of Jehovah T

The gentleness of a

This High Priest of ours understands our weaknesses, for he faced all of the same testings we do, yet he did not sin. So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most. Hebrews 4:15-16 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Prayer: Thank you kindly Jehovah Chatsahi (The Lord is my Strength Psalm 27:1 ) for walking amongst us so You understand the trials and temptations, the tribulations and sorrows we experience in our daily life.

As such, when I come to You seeking help You bless ME with: strength where I am weak and the opportunity to use this strength to help others. The mercy to forgive me when I succumb to my weakness and repent of them.

May I extend that to those who repent when they have wronged me. The gentleness of a loving friend to teach others how to be members of Jehovahs holy family when they are uneducated in the proper etiquette befitting such a noble family.

May I guide others to behave in such a regal manner.

I humbly implore You to grant this petition this in Your gracious name. Amen.

May you be blessed with copious amounts of tutoring at the Masters feet to enable you to be a grand example of a noble family and plenty of opportunities to use them.

As the Holy Spirit Has

We think you ought to know, dear brothers and sisters, about the trouble we went through in the province of Asia. We were crushed and overwhelmed beyond our ability to endure, and we thought we would never live through it. In fact, we expected to die. But as a result, we stopped relying on ourselves and learned to rely only on God, who raises the dead. 2 Corinthians 1:8b,9 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Immeku ( The Lord Is With You Judges 6:12 ) that You are always there to comfort me through the roughest of storms of sorrow and hardships and the hottest of the desert blazing sands of temptations. Please bless me with the opportunity to pay back to You by being a comforter to someone going through the rough seas or the strongest desert storms. I humbly request this in the name of He who quieted the raging seas in the boat with His disciples Jesus Christ. Amen

May you comfort and encourage others as the Holy Spirit has for you. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Oh Please Jehovah Rapha

Therefore, dear brothers and sisters, you have no obligation to do what your sinful nature urges you to do. For if you live by its dictates, you will die. But if through the power of the Spirit you put to death the deeds of your sinful nature, you will live. Romans 8:12-13 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Prayer: Oh please Jehovah Rapha (God my healer Jeremiah 33:6 ) rescue me, Your tormented child, from this addiction. It is slowly destroying my life. It is too powerful for me to conquer on my own but I have faith in the power of Your saving grace. I humbly submit it to You in the name of the greatest healer of all, Jesus Christ. Amen

Editors note, please get into Christian groups that help recovered addicts. Most folks need support through these difficult times and most times there is mental problems that cause the addiction

May you be blessed with the gentle but powerful healing touch of the greatest physician of all today, Jesus Christ. Joseph a son of Jehovah

It Happens Slowly

For simpletons turn away from me—to death. Fools are destroyed by their own complacency. Proverbs 1:32 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

I find it happens slowly without you even realizing it.

It is the same with the individual as with a nation.

Just look around. Even twenty years ago you would not see the filth on TV that you see today. We call it tolerance but it is filth.

Today we see homosexuals in Boy Scouts as scout leaders because we have to be tolerant of their lifestyle and then the scouts getting sued because children are being abused by these disgusting creatures. We call it tolerance but it is filth and innocent children are getting hurt because of it.

“People don’t drift toward holiness, they drift toward compromise and call it tolerance, and drift toward disobedience and call it freedom.” D. A. Carson

We see folks living as they want to live instead of the constraints of civilized society and now we see the break up of families and folks stupidly going in debt of which they will never get out of. That is the reward for your freedom.

We see liberoltards suggesting there be no constraints on illegal drugs and then cry baby because of increasing poverty and increasing crime. Instead of trying to get them off of the drugs and becoming contributing members of society.

The further we get away from Jehovahs guidelines of what is right and what is wrong, the closer we get to destruction of the individual and of society. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah KalEl (voice of God Isaiah 30:21 ) for speaking the truth to me and for blessing me with Your Divine guidance in my life. It may not be politcally correct but it is certainly Christ correct. I praise You in the name of He who always lived a life of truth Jesus Christ. Amen

May the light of Jehovahs truth always guide your steps. Joseph a son of Jehovah

To My Dear Cherished

In the morning, O Lord, I will direct my song and my prayer unto You and will look up. (Psalm 5:3)

To My dear cherished Poppa : Good morning Poppa This is the day that You have made and I rejoice and be glad for the gift of it.

With gratitude, I thank You for preserving my life for one more day.

With gratitude, I thank you for Your ultimate gift of love for me, in the form of Your Son and the sacrifice of His life on my behalf. Because of this overwhelming gift that I often cannot comprehend, I humbly submit to You.

I know Lord, that I am a mere human and cannot instruct You, but you Lord bless me with The Holy Spirit to instruct me.

So teach me Your ways that I may rely on Your steadfast faithfulness. Teach me to number my days and to use my time wisely. I don’t know what this day holds, but I know that You hold the day.

It was you that laid the foundations of the Earth and therefore understands every part of it. I know that you keep the sun in the sky, the stars in place, and have created this Earth for me to inhabit and enjoy.

Throughout this day, may I be always be keenly aware of Your presence in everything I do – as I commute to work, drop children off at school, keep house and speak with my neighbors.

May my life be a living example and may others see Christ in me.

There are many that are hurting in this world – may I be a salve to someone today Lord, in a way that I can’t even imagine.

May my words be seasoned with salt and minister grace to all that hear.

May my actions be aligned with your Word.

I pray for wisdom that is peaceable, gentle, and approachable, with lots of mercy and fairness. You said an unlimited supply of wisdom is available to me if I simply ask, I so humbly request for wisdom to know how to deal with the many people and situations that will cross my path.

I pray for protection throughout this day; protect from harm and evil; go before me, to the left and right of me and behind me. Guide my steps so that I walk worthy of Your calling throughout this day. May I always be sensitive to Your promptings – whether it shows up as a gentle tug or a strong conviction. I pray for reconciliation in families, in nations and to You.

I pray that all may come to know you and be reconciled back to You.

Poppa, you know my faults and my flaws, please forgive me for being unkind with my words and my thoughts; forgive me for being self-serving; forgive me for holding on to old wounds instead of giving them to You.

Please forgive me, Poppa. When I am overwhelmed, confused, unsure, and restless, help me run to Your Word, The Holy Bible.

May your Word come alive to me so that it is a living guide in every situation I encounter this day.

Help me, Poppa, to remember the promises of your Word and bring the right passage to my remembrance for the situation I encounter. I acknowledge Poppa that I need to spend more time with You reading and praying so that I am prepared for whatever the day brings. Poppa I know that your Word is indeed a light unto my feet and a light unto the path You have chosen for me to walk this day .

Please remove fear and anxiety. from my heart and mind . As believers You have not given me a spirit of fear, but of love power and a sound mind. So when I are fearful, please remind me of Your love for me and use that love as the impetus to love others and see situations differently; may I tap into the power that you have given me, for I am never alone because You have not left me comfortless.

May Your wisdom be the underpinnings for my sound mind.

May I remember that I do not have to be anxious and when I am tempted to be anxious or worrisome, may I verbalize my concerns to you and then leave them there as You taught me to do. Worry does me no good and limits me, and You do more with my worry than I ever could. So please help me to turn all of my anxious thoughts and nerve-wracking situations over to You; to truly do that and trust that You are working. That You are working all things together for my good because You love me; that You are working in ways that I cannot comprehend because Your ways always supersede mine. And that in this working You are molding me continually into masterpieces fit for Your use.

Thank You for increasing my faith and capacity to love You by being loving towards others just as You are loving towards me.

As a child of yours Lord, I know that I am Your masterpiece though sometimes I feel so far from it. Please help me to remember my worth in You when I’m faced with challenging situations.

When I feel depressed, help me to remember that I am fearfully and wonderfully made in Your image , a replica of You and that You loved me so much You thought that I was worth dying for.

I do not know anyone that would die for me, but Your beautiful Son, my best friend did, and I’m eternally grateful and humbled for His supreme gift of love towards me.

For the unseen, Poppa, I thank you. You are beyond understanding, You are abundant, you are mine, and I am Yours. I totally and completely submit everything in my life to You today,

I humbly request this in the name of He who humbly went to the cross for me, Jesus Christ. Amen.

May your heart, mind and feet walk hand in hand with Christ this day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

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

A Continuous War.

 We are pressed on every side by troubles, but we are not crushed. We are perplexed, but not driven to despair. We are hunted down, but never abandoned by God. We get knocked down, but we are not destroyed. 2 Corinthians 4:8-9 Holy Bible New Living Translation

As Christians we are in a continuous war.

There is of course, war with those that are liberal minded (if it feels good do it, there is no absolute right or wrong, there is no God).

There is the constant was against demons who relish nothing more than destroying our loving relationship with Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit.

But, the most brutal of all wars is raged in our hearts and minds.

Thoughts of lust, greed, anger, fear and worry are our ever present foes.

That is why it is so important to be in continuous prayer.

When these thoughts and emotions enter our minds and hearts we are to immediately call out to Jehovah to send the Holy Spirit to sweep these thoughts from us like you sweep dirt out of a house.

Then, to fill our house with the sweet fragrance of love, joy and gratitude to our loving Father Jehovah our precious Savior Jesus Christ and our strong Deliverer the Holy Spirit.

“Who sits in solitude and is quiet has escaped from three wars: hearing, speaking, seeing; yet against one thing shall he continually battle: that is, his own heart.”  St. Antony

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Gibbor Milchamah (Psalms 24:8 The LORD Mighty In Battle) for blessing me with the weapons required on a daily basis for the continual battle in my mind and heart. Thank you that through Your strength and wisdom victory is guaranteed. Thank you that when I lose a battle and call out to You, You sooth my soul while blessing me with healing balm for my heart. You are such a wonderful Warrior King. I praise You in Your majestic name. Amen

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