Please Jehovah El ohay Selichot

“But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners.” Romans 5:8  The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Prayer: Please Jehovah El ohay Selichot ( The God Of Forgiveness 1 John 1:9 ) bless me to forgive those who have offended me just as You have forgiven me. Some of the cuts are deep and can only be healed by Your loving balm. Even if they refuse to repent please bless me with Thy Divine love and strength to forgive them for I know it is for my own good.

I humbly request this in the name of He who forgave the Roman soldiers for what they did to Him, Jesus Christ. Amen

Holding grudges only smothers the flames of love and is bad for the body mind and spirit. Joseph a son of Jehovah

May you be blessed with Jehovahs healing balm and strength to forgive as you have been forgiven. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Jehovah ELOHIM YAKOL

Dear brothers and sisters, honor those who are your leaders in the Lord’s work. They work hard among you and give you spiritual guidance. Show them great respect and wholehearted love because of their work. 1 Thessalonians 5:12-13 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Why not give this a try: Say thank you to the stock boys and girls as well as the cashiers at stores. They work hard for little money and receive little gratitude for their hard work.

Give your doctor and thank you card and a home made gift in appreciation for all their hard work. Think about it, they put in long hours and listen to nothing but complaining all day long. That is depressing.

Why not shake a cops hand and thank them for their difficult job. They get crapped on for doing their job and crapped on for not intervening when they cannot.

How about adding pastors, choirs masters, teachers to the list. And you know what?

In doing so, you will find you have a much happier life and mentality.

A grateful life is a joyous life. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Oh, and do not forget to say thank you to our Heavenly Poppa when He blesses you. As well, begin and end your day with saying thank you to Him for all the blessing great and small and see how good of a nights sleep you get.

Always be joyful. Never stop praying. Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus. 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Prayer: Please Jehovah ELOHIM YAKOL (God, the Most Able 2 Corinthians 9:8 ) enable my heart to be gracious and grateful to all those I encounter this day so as to emulate You and be an encourager. I humbly ask this in the name of the greatest encourager of all, 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

To My Dear Jesus

Dear Jesus,

Help me to spread Your fragrance wherever I go.
Flood my soul with Your Spirit and life.
Penetrate and possess my whole being so utterly,
that my life may only be a radiance of Yours.

Shine through me, and be so in me
that every soul I come in contact with
may feel Your presence in my soul.

Let them look up, and see no longer me, but only Jesus!
Stay with me and then I will begin to shine as You shine,
so to shine as to be a light to others.

The light, O Jesus, will be all from You; none of it will be mine.
It will be You, shining on others through me.
Let me thus praise You in the way which You love best,
by shining on those around me.

Let me preach You without preaching, not by words but by my example,
by the catching force, the sympathetic influence of what I do,
the evident fullness of the love my heart bears to You.
Amen.

—Inspired by John Henry Cardinal Newman’s own prayer, prayed by Mother Teresa daily after holy communion.

May you be blessed with many opportunities to shine the light of Christ’s love to others this day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

We Are Not to Be

A good man deals graciously and lends; He will guide his affairs with discretion. Psalms 112:5 The Holy Bible, The New King James Version

Discretion the quality of having or showing discernment or good judgment. Merriam Webster Dictionary

Yes, we are to lend in the appropriate way in the appropriate time. We are not to be suckers.

The first time you bail someone out that is mercy. The second time is abuse. Bailing out the second time prevents them from maturing by taking consequences for thier actions. Joseph a son of Jehovah

“Maturity is not based on age, but on the willingness to accept responsibility.”Dr. Edwin Louis Cole

Now how are we to gain wisdom to make good judgement?

Of course we go to The Answer Man, He knows everything.

And who is this Answer Man?

The wisest of all, Jehovah. He knows everything.

And how do we know His answer for us?

“Faith does not eliminate questions. But faith knows where to take them.” -Elisabeth Elliot

A wise man waits and pray for three days as well as reads his Bible. Jehovah always answers those who have faith in Him, which means to trust Him.

We must also be patient because Jehovah answers in His time, In His way.

I depend upon You, Holy Spirit to help me set Godly boundaries in my relationships. I depend upon You to guide me in the proper use of these skills to nurture loving relationships while purging myself of toxic folks who only bring unnecessary drama and chaos to my life.

Prayer: Please Jehovah El Deah ( God of knowledge. Romans 11:33 ) guide me to share my time, talents, and gifts wherever and whenever You direct me to so as to bring You glory and honour. And, to bring the little lost sheep to You. Please protect me from the abusive wolves who only want to make a sucker out of me. I humbly ask this in the name of He who gave His life for mine, Jesus Christ. Amen .

I love to share the events in my life where Jehovah, Jesus and they Holy Spirit have touched me. How can I not. They were life changing. Joseph a son of Jehovah

But to Make Us

 “Comfort, comfort my people,” says your God. Isaiah 40:1 The Holy Bible, The New Living Version

Yes, Jehovah puts us through the furnace of affliction to burn off the dross (but off our bad dispositions and habits) but He also does so so that we will be able to comfort others when they go through the furnace or through their hard times.

As Jehovah lovingly comforts us, so too are we to follow His example and comfort others. One benefit of this compassion is this will serve as a great opportunity to encourage them to desire to become members of His family.

“God does not comfort us to make us comfortable, but to make us comforters.” — J. H. Jowett

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Shammah ( The Lord is Present Hebrews 13:5 ) for blessing me that You have walked with me through all of my trials and tribulation, sorrows and being put through the furnace of affliction. Please bless me with opportunities to walk with others in their times of need as well. I sincerely ask this in the name of He who walked in the furnace with Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego 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

Protect Us From What?

 ‘May the Lord bless you and protect you.  May the Lord smile on you  and be gracious to you. May the Lord show you his favor and give you his peace.’ Numbers 6:22-27 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

What is the greatest blessing?

It is to be in a loving relationship with Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. In order for them to spend time with you, you have to spend time with them.         

May you  be blessed with spending quality time with our most Beloved today.

Protect us from what?                                                                                                                                                                        

There is satan of course, there are fleshly adversaries but the worst adversary is our own selves. Joseph a son of Jehovah                                                                         

In order for Jehovah to protect us we must be completely obedient unto Him.    May you be blessed with an obedient heart today.

How may the Lord smile upon us?                                                                                           

By being happy with us.                                                                                           

How is He happy with us?                                                                                             

When we appreciate and reciprocate His love. May you be blessed with an amazing loving experience with our most cherished Love.

How can Jehovah be gracious to us?                                                                       

 By blessing us with His gifts for which we do not deserve like forgiveness. But, we must be willing to share these gifts.                                                                         

May the Lord bless you to be as gracious towards others as He is towards you.

How may the Lord show us favor?                                                                               

By doing nice things for us.                                                                                             

But, again as He does nice things for us, we too are to do nice things for others.  May you be blessed with many opportunities to do good to others this day.

How may the Lord bless us with peace?                                                                       

By being there to comfort, strengthen and encourage us through our difficult times. May you be blessed today to be a blessing to others in their time of need as Jesus is to you.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh ( God provides Philippians 4:19) for blessing me the necessary provisions to love others as You love me.       Thank you for You most special love my adorable One and please guide me where that love is needed to be shared with others this day. I sincerely request this in the name of He who always provided for His disciples Jesus Christ. Amen

‘May the Lord bless you and protect you.  May the Lord smile on you  and be gracious to you. May the Lord show you his favor and give you his peace.’ Numbers 6:22-27 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Not an Emotion.

We know what real love is because Jesus gave up his life for us. So we also ought to give up our lives for our brothers and sisters. 1 John 3:16 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

As Christians we are to emulate Jesus.

Just as He gave up everything for us, so too are we to be prepared to give up everything for our fellow man if called upon by Christ.

Are you willing to fast for a week so that the money that would be spent on your groceries would be used to help someone less fortunate than you?

I gave up a months salary to help pay for an life saving operation for a child whose parent were too poor to pay for it. I lived off of one package of instant soup for breakfast, one for lunch and one for supper for a month to pay for the operation.

Love is an action, not an emotion. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Would you give up wages to help someone who needed help?

I used to spend two day teaching rookies how to plant trees at the beginning of the season. That cost me my wages for those days.

Dear children, let’s not merely say that we love each other; let us show the truth by our actions. 1 John 3:18 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Would you be willing to suffer inconvenience to help others?

When a missionary in Latin America. Instead of living in a comfortable motel, I lived in a tent and used the money saved to buy food and medicine for the poor folks I was working with.

If you claim to be a christian and are not prepared to suffer for the good of others, you are not a Christian. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Heseh (God is love 1 John 4:16 ) for blessing me with the most amazing loving relationship with You, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. Thank you for using me as a conduit to express Your love to others. I thank you in the name of my most loving best friend 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

Why do You Give?   

Lazy people are soon poor Proverbs 10:4 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

We are bombarded with feel good stories on the TV news of giving to help the poor, giving to help those with sicknesses and disease.   

BUT, what is at the heart of the giver?                      

Do they genuinely give because of their concern or do they give to feel good and to be prideful on social media look at me, look at me. Or to brag to friends, family and co-workers? Do they participate to be a part of the crowd or because they are peer pressured to give?        

Yes the Lord loves a cheerful giver BUT, we must first take it to Him in prayer where to give, how much to give and when to give. Then, we will be giving to please the Lord which is the only reason any Christian should give.               

Give joyfully and thankfully to the Lord in abundance as a sacrifice of love and appreciation as He has given in abundance sometimes with great cost (like the cross) to you.  

Give, but give to bring glory to Christ not to self Joseph a son of Jehovah

  Why do you give?

 Prayer:Thank you Jehovah Jireth (Genesis 22:14 The LORD Shall Provide) for blessing me with the tools and the opportunities to help those that are worthy of help. May these opportunities be a conduit to guide the needy into Your gracious loving arms. I praise You in the name of He who gave His blood for my redemption, 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

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

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.

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.

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.

Have you ever though of all the good deeds you have done through out the day?

Can you count them?

Prayer: Thank you El Simchath Gili (Psalms 43:4 GOD My Exceeding Joy) for blessing me with oh so many opportunities to gain spiritual wealth by giving and sharing with those who are worthy of assistance. It makes my heart dance with ecstasy to know this brings joy to Your loving heart. I praise You in the name of He who gave His blood for me to experience the joy of being a child of Yours, 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
