Cheers Him Up.

helping-others

 “An anxious heart weighs a man down, but a kind word cheers him up. “ Proverbs 12:25 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Anxiousness is described as feeling or showing uncomfortable feelings of uncertainty .

We have all encountered those around us that are suffering. How many have reached out and touched them with healing kindness ?

How can we help them ?

The best thing to do is to show you care by listening to their problems ( Jehovah takes the time to listen to our problems should we not emulate Him by doing the same for those that are suffering around us ? ) .

We are not just talking about the homeless .

We are talking about those that are suffering a disease . Yes , for many , going into a hospital is an uncomfortable experience but how comfortable do you think it is for them. Why not go in and reminisce with them about the good ol days . Why not go in with some photo’s of happy times . Speaking from experience you will be amazed at the amount of good you accomplish.

We are talking about those who are having difficulty in their studies or at work. Those of us who are older can relate and provide encouraging words to strengthen , guide them and encourage them. What about those that are experiencing relationship problems like with marriage or children? Again , those of us who are older have walked that walk and can provide positive affirmation to them by our experiences which will guide them , strengthen them and reassure them .

There are so many other opportunities available unto you Christian. All you have to do is be available , pray and be obedient unto Jehovahs guidance where your help is needed.

Prayer: Please Jehovah-Machsi – Lord my Refuge bless me with the opportunity to be a refuge unto those enduring trials and tribulations , sorrows and snares just as You are for me. Bless me with Your divine wisdom , grace , meekness and humbleness to help them as You have aboundingly done for me . I humbly request this in the name of He who was a refuge to the poor , the sick and the weak when He walked amongst us Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day.

One Goes With the Other.

chief-duty

 And God is able to make all grace [every favor and earthly blessing] come in abundance to you, so that you may always [under all circumstances, regardless of the need] have complete sufficiency in everything [being completely self-sufficient in Him], and have an abundance for every good work and act of charity. 2 Corinthians 9:8 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Jehovah gives us so that we are to give to others. If you do not share then why should He share with you?

Jehovah will not provide you with abundance of earthly delights like a home you cannot afford or a new car with all the toys you do not need or expensive clothing you do not need but and abundance of spiritual blessings to complete the task He has intended for you in His divine plan.

“I exhort you, press on in your course, and exhort all men that they may be saved.” — Polycarp

The earthly blessings will be a time and place to accomplish His plan through you. It will also include the materials you need , like maybe a computer.

The only way to accomplish this task is with Divine wisdom , grace , meekness and humbleness which can only be received through you dependence upon Him. He will abundantly supply these things.

I have done more for the Lord through the simple things that Jehovah lavishly provides for me than through the gadgets the world offers. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Jireh (God is our Provider) for blessing me with Your daily providence to accomplish the tasks You have predestined for me to do for Your glory , Your kingdom and those who need assistance. I extol You in the name of He who provided for the four thousand Jesus Christ . Amen

May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day.

The Same Respect

goodness-is

We Give Show respect for all people [treat them honorably], love the brotherhood [of believers], fear God 1 Peter 2:17 Holy Bible Amplified Version

We are to show respect to everyone.

The same respect we give to a elite athlete we are to give to a physically handicapped soul.

The same respect we give to an intellect we are to give to the mentally challenged.

The same respect we give to those that are stunningly beautiful we are to give to the homely.

The same respect we give to the financially wealthy we are to give to the poor.

The same respect we give to the elders we are to give to the young.

Do you see a pattern emerging here?

Why not pray that that pattern is ingrained in your daily lives every day?

Mutual respect is an intricate part of a loving relationship. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Ezer ( The LORD our Helper) for blessing me with the knowledge, skill and determination to always be respectful toward You as well as my fellow man. I magnify Thee in the name of He who taught us how to be respectful unto others Jesus Christ.

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

No Long Pusses Allowed.

chief-duty

 Serve the Lord with gladness. Psalm 100:2 New King James Version

Have you ever seen the falsies?

You know the type, they walk around with their faces hanging down so low it looks like their chins is dragging the ground, while pretending to be in service unto Jehovah. It is vanity because they are saying to the world:”Look at how much I am suffering for the Lord. Aren’t I so holy.”

Jehovah is not conned by such simpleton behaviour. There is no long pusses allowed in service unto our beloved Father.

We have all met some one during our lives that we gladly bend over backwards to do anything for them because we have such a deep affection for them. Should we not emulate this behavior in service unto our Heavenly King?

And, if we so much in love with Him is a act of service or is it a gift of love and appreciation towards Him for all His never ending blessings he abundantly showers us with every day?

Now some times it is difficult in our service towards Him (just ask any childrens Sunday school teacher) but over all we are glad to be in a situation were we can serve our Lord as a gift of love and appreciation.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-‘Ori (the Lord is my Light) for blessing me with Your awesome light of joy that fills my heart with Your treasured love and joy as I gladly serve You today in the service You guide me to. I praise You in the name of He who was Your supreme servant on the cross Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

But Whoever has Adequate Resources

SHARING

 But whoever has the world’s goods (adequate resources), and sees his brother in need, but has no compassion for him, how does the love of God live in him? 1 John 3:17 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

I have seen people who do without their daily needs so they can give to the bleeding hearts (most of whom are scam artists in my opinion) on TV cry babying for money. It is pitiful to see but they think they are doing good (meanwhile many of these ceo’s are getting paid millions of dollars and the people you think you are helping are just too lazy to help themselves). Many falsely believe they are obeying Jehovahs commands to help the “poor”.

When I was was in Central America folks were constantly telling me to get married and have lots of children so they can support them when they get old. Meanwhile they cannot support their families. They would look at me and say because I have more money than them I “owe” it to them to give them my money.

As well, volunteering in soup kitchens it was common for the “poor” to come up to me and brag about the new tattoo they got and then cry baby they do not have money for food and demand I give them money because I have more money than them.

We are to give, but we are to give sensibly.

Check out the organization (begin by looking at the ceo’s wages ) and if the money is going to actually help those who are worthy of the help.

I do not care if you think I am a scrooge. I would rather give wisely and be considered a Scrooge than give foolishly and be a sucker. Joseph- Anthony :Green

If you cannot afford to help financially then help by donating your time to a worthy cause.

Prayer:Please Jehovah-Jireh (God is our Provider) provide wisdom unto those who wish to honour You but have limited financial resources to organizations that will appreciate their skills more than their finances. Please provide those with available financial resources to organizations that will wisely use the gifts graciously provided unto them. I ask this in the name of he who always provided for His disciples when he walked with them Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

We Serve One or the Other.

chief-duty

Serve the Lord with gladness and delight; Come before His presence with joyful singing. Psalm 100:2 Holy Bible Amplified Version

In life we all have a choice of who we will serve. We cannot serve them both. We will serve one or the other.

The second one is serving ourselves. We come above all others and all else.

Now some may say I do a lot of community work, how can that be serving myself?

Yes, but, why are you serving the community or is it to serve the community or is it to puff up your ego?

The sad thing is that those who are selfish and self serving (greedy) are the loneliest creatures I have ever met. Oh, they may have a lot of money, prestige, fame and toys but they have no one to love and to be loved by. They usually take comfort in a bottle or pills.

The number on choice is to serve the Lord.

Everything we do whether great or small that is dedicated unto Him is cherished by Him.

There is no small act of dedication unto Jehovah that is not great in Heaven. Joseph- Anthony: Green

We are to serve out of duty not obligation.

Duty is an act of love, obligation is a transaction of goods.

So those religions that falsely teach that good works will gain you entry into Shangrala are only deceiving you. When you receive your rewards here, you have completed the transaction of goods.

When we serve out of duty unto Jehovah it is done as an act of love. After all that is what it is all about. Being blessed with a loving relationship with Him and when you love someone you enjoy making them happy which is what duty is. The bonus we receive is a heavenly home where we will enjoy an eternal loving intimate relationship with our Divine Father.

Do you seek any further reward beyond that of having pleased God? In truth, you know not how great a good it is to please Him. –St. John Chrysostom

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Heseh (God is love) for blessing me with many opportunities to preform my duty unto You by serving others. I exalt You in the name of He who served us on with the ultimate service on the cross Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

In Old Age.

HE HAS THE WORK PREPARED

 [Growing in grace] they will still thrive and bear fruit and prosper in old age . Psalm 92:14 Holy Bible, Amplified Bible

Just because you are old does not diminish your usefulness in service unto Jehovah.

There are many organizations like Habitat for Humanity that would gladly appreciate your skills. Even if you have no experience they still need helping hands. I worked with them for the first time recently and the old fellas taught me a great deal and the fellowship was great.

Perhaps you have been a housewife, well I am sure there are community programs where they need you to teach cooking (the old home made meals are still the best).

If you have a vehicle there are many elderly folks that need a ride for doctors appointments and to take the shopping. There are hiking trails that need volunteers for maintenance of the trails.

There are literacy programs that need volunteers to teach others to read.

You can go and help out at seniors homes, being a volunteer there believe me I see a lot of lonely folks that would love to have someone come in for a visit.

The whole time you can share with others your walk with Christ. Personal testimony is still the best evangelical tool available.

Carpe diem (Seize the day)

Plant your seed of kindness and love today so that you will be blessed with an abundant harvest tomorrow. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Not only will you be helping your community but ,by Gods grace, you will be guiding others into Jehovahs beautiful family.

There are so many lost, confused and lonely out there that need your help. Another blessing is that what goes around, comes around. When the time comes when you need help ( and we all do occasionally) you will have a support network there to help you as you have helped others.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Immanuel (God is with us) for walking with me through out my life and teaching me so many amazing things. Thank you for walking with me through my many trials and tribulations, sorrows and snares. Please bless me with opportunities to pass this Divine wisdom on to others who need guidance and support. I praise You and humbly request this in the name of He who is my constant support and guide through life, Jesus Christ. Amen.

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