The Source of All Comfort.

 All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. God is our merciful Father and the source of all comfort. He comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others. When they are troubled, we will be able to give them the same comfort God has given us. 2 Corinthians 1:3-4 Holy Bible New Living Translation

Those make the best comforters and encouragers are those who have suffered the most and come through it ever closer to Christ.

Jehovah loves you so He does not allow you to suffer for nothing. He uses these experiences to help mature you, to burn off the dross (habits that hinder your development into a strong Christian character) and to add more tool to your work belt of being a encouraging Christian to others.

Jehovah permits us to go through hard times and help us through them so that not only can we help others though our experience but that we guide them to Jesus through that experience. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Lord, please bless me to guide me to help others as You have helped me. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Shammah ( The Lord is Present Hebrews 13:5 ) for walking with me through all of my troubles and lovingly healed me, encouraged me, and strengthened me. Please my Love bless me with opportunities to reciprocate this to others when the storms of life are crashing down around them. I sincerely ask this in the name of He who always took time to help others, 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

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

He Has Given Me

 God did not give me a spirit of timidity or cowardice or fear, but [He has given me a spirit] of power and of love and of sound judgment and personal discipline [abilities that result in a calm, well-balanced mind and self-control]. 2 Timothy 1:7 The Holy Bible, The New Living Testament Version

If Jehovah did not give it to us then who did?

It was satan that gave us a spirit of timidity where we are afraid to speak the truth. He did this to prevent us from from speaking the truth and bringing the lost to Christ. He also did it so that the wicked ones could gain power over the weak and abuse them to greater degrees. This has been done through out history where if the people spoke up in the beginning bad things like the Nazi’s would not have happened.

It was satan that gave us a spirit of cowardice so we would not stand up to bullies. This created terrible situations for entire societies (look again to Nazism). As well, he gave us a spirit of cowardice and fear so we would not step out into the unknown world Jesus is leading us to in service to Him.

Jehovah has, through faith, given us power to conquer evil folks and love to reach out to the unloved. He has blessed us with sound judgment so we will not fall for his schemes and scams. He gave us a spirit of discipline so we can grow in power in His spirit to live Godly lives.

This means living a life of having a well balanced mind that is balanced by the Holy Spirits guidance.

We have calmness by surrendering ourselves to Him and allowing Him to keep us calm in tense situations.

Through the Holy Spirit we gain self control (sometimes He keeps us under control, sometimes He reminds us of when we are losing it and depends upon us to make the effort of maintaining self control). Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Immeka (Judges 6:12 The LORD Is with You) for always being with me and helping me live a victorious life through You. I praise You in the name of He who I always try to imitate in every area of my life to bring You glory through my life just as He did, Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Can you count them?

 I remember what the Lord Jesus said, ‘I am more happy when I give than when I receive.’ ” Acts 20:35 The Holy Bible The New Living Translation

I have been blessed that it has always been easy to help others. Sometimes when reflecting back on the days activities with my Beloved, He reminds me of little things as well as big ones that have been done for others. Many times these good deeds are done out of second nature. We both share a good laugh and He is greatly thanked for the opportunity to share and help others He presented me with through out the day.

loving to each other

Helping others every day bring joy and meaning to my day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

But, here is the thing though.

You can be a revolutionary.

By observing your actions you can encourage others to be helpful and giving as well.

When I was living in this city in Asia I used to buy food and give it to the beggars on the street. After a few months I noticed others were emulating my acts of kindness. At it did not click where the others got the idea of being so kind and generous until my eyes were opened by the Holy Spirit.

young-and-old-all-need-love

Your simple acts of kindness can be the beginning of a compounding act of love in your neighbourhood, in your city, in your province and in your country. Joseph a son of Jehovah

It is scary to begin this habit and we always need the Holy Spirits direction in where to go and who to help. When we surrender out will to His, He takes us to amazing places and helps us accomplish amazing feats. Oh, they will not make the six o’clock news but you can bet Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit are clapping their hands in Heavens and smiling as they say: “What a wonderful child of mine they are. I love them so much and am so proud of them.”

Now, you do not need to do good deeds to attain Jehovah, Jesus or the Holy Spirits love and approval but just as they are good to you, so too are you to be good to others.Joseph a son of Jehovah

Have you ever thought of all the good deeds you have done through out the day? Can you count them?

Prayer: Glory, glory excelsior my adoring Jehovah Jireth (Genesis 22:14 The LORD Shall Provide) for blessing me with one of the most special gift of all, the gift of sharing with others. This blesses both of us as well as the receivers. I praise You in the name of He who shared so much of Himself with others and who I always attempt to emulate 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.   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

Do Have Powerful Effects on Others.

 For just as the heavens are higher than the earth, so my ways are higher than your ways and my thoughts higher than your thoughts. Isaiah 55:9 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

I thought this, He has that planned.

One day I felt a strong desire to go to a photo shop and have a lot of positive affirmation cards made out using my photo’s and Bible verses added into them. It was assumed that they would be read every morning to get me off to a positive start to the day.

A few weeks after they had been printed the corona virus hit. At the same time some members of moms church began going through some very difficult times as well as facing the loneliness of isolation.

I convinced mom to drive me to their dwelling place (I have never had a drivers licence) and I would place the card in their mail boxes. Mom added a little gift like a box of chocolates.

After reading the card and the accompanying poem I wrote they called up mom just bawling uncontrollably. Thanking her. The cards gave them a lot of comfort and encouragement.

We did the same for shut in seniors that could not get out shopping (there are huge line ups at all the grocery stores so I would go do their shopping for them while mom sat in the vehicle (her health will not allow her to stand for a hour in the line up).

Now is the time for brothers and sisters in Christs holy family to come together and help each other.

I have gotten mom to make a list and call members of her church every day and just talk with them. Now other members are calling each other and encouraging each other following moms lead. It has a incredible effect on bother the callers and the receivers. This makes us stronger and more united. Those shut ins (especially those in seniors homes where visitors are not allowed and they are confined to their rooms) really appreciate it.

TAKING IT TO OTHERS

Even the simplest acts of love can and do have powerful effects on others. Especially in these difficult frightening times. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you El Marom (Micah 6:6 GOD Most High ) for blessing me with Your guiding hand using Your wisdom which constantly amazes me. I am honoured my Love that You have used me in such a wonderful manner.                                                                                                                                           May many reading this be blessed to follow suit.                                                                                           I give thank and ask in the name of He who constantly confused the wise in His walk on this planet, 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 to be shared with others. May you be blessed with plentiful opportunities to share these with those around you today. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Why it is so Important?

HE GIVES ABUNDANTLY

To Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God. Matthew 4:4 The Holy Bible The New Living Translation

This is why it is so important to read the Bible every day and to seek its meaning thus living by what the Holy Spirit teaches us.

First we may be going astray without even knowing it. A Bible Verse may open our eyes to our slowly, unwittingly drifting away from Christ and towards destruction.

’”Just as at sea those who are carried away from the direction of the harbor bring themselves back on course by a clear sign, so Scripture may guide those adrift on the sea of life back into the harbor of the divine will.” — St. Gregory of Nyssa

Second, memorizing Bible Verses and their meaning helps us guide others back on course when we see them going astray. We respectfully talk with them about it. By Gods grace we shall guide them back to the path that leads to Heavens Gate.

Prayer:Thank you Jehovah El Emeth (Psalms 31:5 LORD GOD of Truth) for blessing me with the ultimate book of knowledge (The Holy Bible) to guide me along the path to Heaven You have chosen for me to travel. I pray that they are branded into my being so as to draw them like a razor sharp sword to defeat the enemy (Satan and his minions) when they attack me. I exalt You in the name of the greatest swordsman of all Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Have You Ever Stood On.

  For the place where you are standing is holy ground.” Exodus 3:5 The Holy Bible, The New Living Testament Version

What made the place Moses was standing on holy ground It was not the place but who was in the place. And, the who that was in the place was Jehovah.

Have you ever stood on holy ground?

If you are a Christian you have. Every time you are with our Heavenly Beloved, you are on holy ground. It does not matter if it is your bedroom or your bathroom or in nature or on the bus or in your car. Where ever you are with Jehovah is holy ground.

Now when the conversation is over, the ground is no longer holy because our Heavenly Beloved is no longer there.

GOD IS WITH US

My favorite place to stand is upon the Holy ground with my most Beloved. Joseph a son of Jehovah

So when any cult tells you any place is holy ground do not believe them.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Abba (Jehovah our Beloved Father in Heaven) for blessing this child of Yours with the honour of standing on holy ground every time we commune together no matter where we are. I exalt You in the name of my holies big brother Jesus Christ. Amen

Christ blesses us with love, peace and joy. May you be blessed with many opportunities to share these with others today.   Joseph a son of Jehovah

The Lord Leads With

 The Lord leads with unfailing love and faithfulness all who keep his covenant and obey his demands. Psalm 25:10 The Holy Bible,The  New Living Testament Version

Those He leads He takes care of. He makes sure they have a place to stay, food and clothing. Because our Father loves us, He is happy to give blessings to us other than these.

fullfilled-desires

That does not mean you will be living in a mansion or driving and expensive car or dining at fancy restaurants. But, you will be contented in your living arrangements because you will have all you need not all you desire which is a form of greed.

Someone who is faithful is someone who can be depended upon to keep their word of honour.

No one is more dependent than Jehovah. He has never broken any of His promises in over six thousand years. That sounds pretty dependable to me.

However, the catch is that we must keep His covenant.

What is His covenant?

First is that we show our love for Him by being loving and obedient children unto Him first and fore most above all others. We must obey His demands so we go where He tells us to go and do what He tells us to do.

Second, that we are loving towards others. We are loving towards them by being helpful, respectful, polite and firm when necessary.

When we are faithful unto Jehovah, He is innumerably more faithful unto us. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rohi ( Jesus is our Divine Shepherd )- Psalm 23 that when I follow Your wise voice, You always lead me through the dark and dangerous valleys of life. I exalt You in the name of the greatest Shepard, 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.   Joseph a son of Jehovah

Come and See

Come and see what our God has done, what awesome miracles he performs for people! Psalm 66:5 The  Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Many of us who dedicate our lives to serving our Heavenly King are living hand to mouth. We are living comfortably but far from extravagantly. By the worlds standards we have no pension fund and will be left in abject poverty upon retirement.

Do not believe this lie by satan to discourage you, good servant. The Master of the Universe loves you and has promised to take care of His cherished friends, who are also His free will servants. He will provide for us in miraculous ways to prove to all He takes care of His own.

Jehovah always provides for those who loves and obeys Him. Joseph a son of Jehovah

The same cannot be said of those tumbling around in the darkness.

Prayer: Thank you oh my gracious and generous Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) Philippians 4:19 for always supplying for this adoring child of Yours through out my life and for providing me with a magnificent home You have lovingly provided for me in Heaven. I thank you in the name of my beloved big brother I look forward to guiding through that home when I arrive there, Jesus Christ. Amen

GOD PROVIDES

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
