How to Have a Rewarding Day

be loving like jesus

 A generous man will prosper; he who refreshes others will himself be refreshed. Proverbs 11:25, New International Version

Kind words can be short and easy to speak but their echoes are truly endless. Mother Theresa

How to have a rewarding day: Sometimes it’s the little words that can have the biggest impact. When you see someone sad a simple hi or good morning accompanied with a sincere smile is all it takes to turn the gloomy day into a day of sunshine.

When someone is down a simple compliment like I like your outfit can really be a booster. A simple thank you can brighten a day.

Today, make an effort to say something nice to someone you see with the clouds of despair hanging over their head. Watch their face break out into a beautiful smile.

Better yet, when I was a child I belonged to a group that made it a practice to do at least one good deed a day. Why not make that a habit in your life and see how much it changes your life and the life of those around you.

You know what?

It will make you feel pretty good too.

We shall never know all the good that a simple smile can do. Mother Theresa

Prayer: Please my Beloved Father Jehovah Heseh (God is love) bless me to emulate You today, especially to someone who is in need of some tender loving care. May this be a catalyst to guide them to You which is the most loving thing I can do for anyone. I humbly ask this in the name of He who is the most loving of any who has walked this planet Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with peace and joy every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

God Blesses Those Who

GREED

God blesses those who patiently endure testing and temptation. Afterward they will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him. James 1:12 The Holy Bible New Living Translation  

I have seen too many egotistic folks or good hearted folks try to leave a legacy because they want to be remembered when they go over to the other side which is abused and forgotten in a few years. All the while they neglect their eternal inheritance which will be either very comfortable or extremely uncomfortable.

I choose the eternal inheritance of Christs kingdom over my ego every time. Joseph a son of Jehovah

I work to impress Jehovah, not man. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Have you ever heard of the old saying:”He would be rolling in his grave if he ever saw ___ (fill in the blank). I have seen many sacrifice their live and their health so that when they die they will leave a good inheritance for their children. When they die their children could care less and end up blowing their inheritance foolishly. Their parents would be rolling in their graves if they saw it.

Our inheritance has been turned over to strangers, our homes to foreigners. Lamentations 5:2 The Holy Bible New Living Translation

I have seen many buildings that in their time were extravagant luxurious statements to the community about the owners wealth that are now run down buildings used by drug addicts and for wild drunken orgies parties. Boy would they be spinning in their graves if they could see that.

On the other hand when we work for King Jesus, He will place a beautiful crown of glory on our heads when when enter Heavens Gate.

Remember that the Lord will give you an inheritance as your reward, and that the Master you are serving is Christ. Colossians 3:24 The Holy Bible New Living Translation

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Abba (God our Father) for blessing me with an amazing inheritance in Heaven with the best inheritance of all,spending eternity with You, Jesus, the Holy Spirit and fellow members of Your Holy Family. I praise You in the name of my big brother 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. May you be blessed with plentiful opportunities to share these with those around you today. Joseph a son of Jehovah

You Want to See Some

Christ, WILL LEAD

Open my eyes to see the wonderful truths in your instructions. ” Psalm 119:18 The Holy Bible, New Living Translation

You want to see some amazing things?

When you read the Bible God can reveal some pretty amazing things He has done.

And, you know what?

When you give your life to Him and trust Him He will do incredible things for you as well. It is team work though.

First you have to believe Him and trust Him.

Second you must read His instruction manual for your life. When He reveals something to you, write it down. Later after prayer, contemplate the special secrets He has shown you. I say secrets because He will only share them with men and women who trust Him.

Third again in trust you must trust Him and obey what He has advised you to do. I say advised because God NEVER tells you to do anything. He respects your free will in your life.

“For God is working in you, giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases him. ” Philippians 2:13 The Holy Bible, New Living Translation

Try reading the Bible every morning for a month and writing down the thoughts that come to you and take action on them. See how it affects your day to day decisions.

We have not received the spirit of the world but the Spirit who is from God, that we may understand what God has freely given us. 2 Corinthians 2:12 The New International Version

Instruct a wise man and he will be wiser still; teach a righteous man and he will add to his learning. Proverbs 9:9 New International Version

Finally, remember your manners. Say thank you to our loving gracious God for all the wonderful gifts He has given us

I will praise the Lord at all times. I will constantly speak His praises” (Psalm 34:1) The Holy Bible, Amplified Version.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah GELAH RAZ ( the God of the Revealer of Mysteries) for blessing me with Your amazing wisdom in such a manner that a simple child like I can understand it because my heart, mind and body is devoted to You. I praise You in the name of He who spoke confusing truth to those who were willingly ignorant 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.

How Great of an Ambassador are You?

FOLLOWING CHTISTS EXAMPLE

 We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors … We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God. 2 Corinthians 5:20 New International Version

Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. 1 Peter 3:15 New International Version

Do you know you are Gods ambassador?

When people know you are a Christian they will judge Christianity by you actions and words. Just as you are an ambassador for your country when you travel abroad, so to are you Jesus’ ambassador your every waking moment.

You are Christs ambassador. Live like one. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: I am honored and humbled by the awesome responsibility you have given me as Your representative Jehovah. Please always provide me with the tools necessary to accomplish this important task. In the name of Jesus Christ I pray. 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

The Simple Easy Way to Riches

RICHES OF THE HEART

 How would you like to be rich and contented?

How would you like to have a fulfilling life?

How do you attain this you ask?

Begin with assessing your heart.

Are you so caught up in the “Keeping up with the Jones” you do not have time to enjoy what you have?

Is your pursuit of money and all its trapping enslaving you to the point where you neglect your service to God and spending quality time with your family.

Remember the Cat Stevens song “Cats in the cradle and the silver spoon”? The father was so busy he neglected his son. Then when he was old and retired his son didn’t have time to spend with his child. That’s when he realized his mistake and understood he should have spent time with his family. Try spending quality time with your wife (or husband every day), time with your children every day.

Get involved with community work. I loved my time volunteering at a local hospital and still cherish it even now, thirty years later.

Don’t forget “It is better to receive than to get.”

When you give of your time and effort you become rich in the heart. That is when God will shower you with His wonderful blessings.

Satisfy us in the morning with your unfailing love that we may sing for joy and be glad all our days. Psalm 90:14 New Living Bible

From David learn to give thanks for everything. Every furrow in the Book of Psalms is sown with the seeds of thanksgiving. Jeremy Taylor

“The blessing of the LORD, it makes rich, and he adds no sorrow with it” (Prov. 10:22) New Living Translation.

Do you love to go shopping?

Do you have to have the latest clothing (even though after you buy it a lot of times it looks weird and you wouldn’t wear it for a Halloween costume)?

Do you have to have the latest toys to be happy?

You know, I remember before Christmas (which is “supposed” to be all about giving) being constantly bombarded by commercials on TV about how happy we would be if we had to have the latest toy. Of course on Christmas Day after gleefully playing with the toys for a while we became bored with them and they sat there gathering dust. Then what?

Remember in the seventies when everyone had to have a pet rock and you paid all that money to have one?

How much do you play with it today? (Yes kids, many of your parents were that stupid to buy a “pet rock”)

Do you have to go out and buy more to be happy?

What a never ending stupid circle of emptiness. You are a dead man walking. Sure your body is alive, but there is a huge emptiness in your heart, for all intense purposes your heart is dead. Welcome to the world of consumerism. Isn’t it fun?

1 Timothy 5:6: “She that lives in pleasure is dead while she lives.” The American Standard Bible .

The most miserable people I have met are the ones that have all the toys. The most happy and contented ones are the ones that are rich in their hearts. Which one do you choose?

Be sure to fear the LORD and serve him faithfully with all your heart; consider what great things he has done for you. 1 Samuel 12:24 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

You will be made rich in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God.2 Corinthians 9:11 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

May my both my hands always be open. One hand to receive my Heavenly Beloveds blessings, the other to share them. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Our gracious and loving God please fill my heart and mind with the most important treasure of all, knowing Your awesome love and having You in my life. As I am filled with Your glorious riches please help me become even more richer. Guide me on where and how to share Your Magnificent love with others. Teach me what to say and do to reveal Your incredible love for all. In the ones name who loved us so much He willingly dies for us Jesus Christ we pray. Amen.

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

Are You Ready for Your

 

BURN LIKE THE SUN

“Do not judge others, and you will not be judged.  For you will be treated as you treat others.The standard you use in judging is the standard by which you will be judged. Matthew 7:1-2 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation 

Yes it is your duty to point out others weaknesses and faults but not the right to be judge and jury. You are to help them in their weakness and ignorance with love and compassion not hard heartedness . 

Do you believe you have the right to be judge and jury over others?

If you hold grudges or attempt to take revenge, your own failure is certain. I know, I used to take great pleasure in tormenting anyone who crossed me. But in the end it always boomeranged on me. 

Do you have a self appointed critic attitude?

Do you want to get back on me with a vengeance?

Soon you will be angry with everyone and be very lonely and bitter. Holding grudges is like swallowing acid to punish others. Ir will soon slowly, painfully destroy you.

Are you self righteous?

Do you believe you are better than anyone else?

If you are proud and find pleasure when others fail there will come a time when YOU fail and everyone will laugh at you. . You will be humbled.

Do you believe you are self sufficient taking credit for what God has given you?

If you think you are secure in your possessions and abilities, your situation is sure to change.

At one time in my life I had a good job, lots of money and lived the good life. Without warning the factory closed, my money depleted so bad I had to walk knee deep in snow to collect pop bottles and beer bottles to get enough money to buy a loaf of bread and jar of honey. That is what I lived off of for a week. Thankfully that situation only lasted for a few months I could not pay the hydro so being cut off there was no heat in the house. It was warmer outside than in that house. It was the lowest point of my life and still is branded in my mind.

So do not be egotistic and think you are so high and mighty, that you are secure in your riches. You WILL be brought down in the blink of an eye.

Prayer: Jehovah our gracious God. Thank you for the numerous blessing You have so freely blessed us with.                                      Please guard my heart that it does not become arrogant and take credit for the blessing You gracefully give us.                                   Please bless me not to be judge and jury but rather someone who comes along side the ignorant and help them eliminate their wrong manner of behavior.                                                                   In the name of the One who never judged the adulteress woman Jesus Christ we pray. Amen.

The manner in which you judge others, Jesus shall judge you. Joseph a son of Jehovah

May Gods sunshine always bless you with brightening your day with His love, joy and peace.

The Warrior’s Prayer:

HAVE COURAGE

The Warrior’s Prayer:

Heavenly Father, this day Your child clothes himself with Your battle gear as I prepare for battle.
I claim victory this day and every day by putting on Jehovahs armor.

I put on the girdle of truth, which is the Bible, so that satan cannot con me with his lies.

Next comes the breastplate of righteousness which is the blood of Christ.that protects me heart from evil so that I will remain holy.

After that comes the shoes of peace that walks the road of love, compassion and respect for others.. This will be a beacon that guide others to my Beloved Jesus.

Then I pick up the shield of faith, which means trust. I completely trust Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit loves me, they care about me and are always there with me. No lie nor deceit of satan can ever pierce this shield.

The helmet of salvation is placed upon my head so that my thoughts words and deeds are concentrated upon Christ’s salvation so that I am His devoted humble servant. In my other hand is the Sword of the Spirit (the Holy Spirit) which is a double edged sword of power to resist satan as it slashes deep into the wicked heart of satan when he tempts me. Now I have the complete armor of Jehovah on and am prepared to live a victorious day this day and every day by the grace of Jehovah   

Jehovahs armor cannot ever be defeated. Every Christian must put it on every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah 

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Gador Milchamah (The Lord is Mighty in Battle)  Psalms 24:8 for blessing me with the impenetrable armor to defeat satan with. Please bless me that You will remind me to put it on every morning. I exalt You in the name of He who defeated satan on the cross 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
