Shows the Reality of What

 Faith shows the reality of what we hope for; it is the evidence of things we cannot see. Hebrews 11:1 The Holy Bible, The New Living Version

Faith means trust. Trust does not come naturally, it must be nurtured. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Even though Abraham had faith enough to leave His comfortable life it took Him years to truly have faith in Jehovah.

Why should it be any different for us?

It took me decades to have complete and total confidence in Jehovah. 

But, along the way it also took commitment to follow the Holy Spirits guidance even though most times I had no idea of where He was leading me and the work He had prepared for me. Most times, it was intellectually insane to go forth on this path. Especially, for someone like me, who has to always know the how’s, where’s, when’s and why’s before I take the first step.

“Faith, however, is not intellectual understanding; faith is a deliberate commitment to the person of Jesus Christ, even when I can’t see the way ahead.” Oswald Chambers

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Chris Melech Olam (Psalms 10:16 The LORD King Forever ) for blessing me with the honour of being Your loving, humble servant. Please bless me Holy Spirit to have the trust in my King and strong conviction of service unto Him to follow Him even when I do not know where He is leading me because I know that the ultimate destination is Your Heavenly home You have graciously prepared for my, Your adoring child.  I sincerely request this in His majestic name. 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

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

No Matter What The

Trust in and rely confidently on the Lord with all your heart And do not rely on your own insight or understanding. In all your ways know and acknowledge and recognize Him. And He will make your paths straight and smooth [removing obstacles that block your way]. The No matter what the situation leave it in Gods hands. Proverbs 3:5-6 The Holy Bible, The Amplified Version

Are you concerned about not having enough money at the end of the month, leave it in Gods hands (now He may suggest you stop wasting money in restaurants and start making your own coffee and start brown bagging it). When I was working I would make meals on my day off to last me the rest of the week. They were not all the same. You can get every creative with the Holy Spirit as your cooking guide as well. 

Are you concerned about a health issue, leave it in Gods hands (now He may suggest you change your diet and start getting exercise). He did with me and boy do I ever feel much healthier.

Are you concerned about relationship problems, leave it in Gods hands (now He may suggest you get rid of those who are nothing but problems and are users and abusers in your life which may be hard but is best for you).

I leave it in Gods hands. He loves me, He always wants what is best for me and will work it out for my best interest. Joseph a son of Jehovah 

Prayer:  Thank you Jehovah Ori (Psalms 27:1 The LORD My Light) that as I trust in You, You always light the proper way to go in very aspect of my life. I praise You in the deepest gratitude in the name of the light of the world, Jesus Christ. Amen

One Whose Heart Breaks When

 I live in the high and holy place with those whose spirits are contrite and humble. I restore the crushed spirit of the humble and revive the courage of those with repentant hearts. Isaiah 57:15 Holy Bible, New Living Translation

A contrite heart means one whose heart breaks when they sin.

Now do you notice that Jehovah lives in a high and holy place?

That can only mean Heaven.

Do you notice that those with a contrite heart live there with Him?

When we are naughty and then repent (which means we admit what we did, admit it was wrong, apologize for it, ask for forgiveness and make restitution where possible) then Jehovah takes our spirits up to Heaven to be with Him, if only for the moment of when we repent.

I believe this is a sign from our loving Heavenly Father that our sins are truly forgiven.

The Holy Spirit instills in us all that which is right and that which is wrong. We receive the proper rewards for the decisions we make. Joseph a son of Jehovah.

See how He says He will revive those of a repentant heart.

I know from my experience I felt crushed with remorse, weak and feeble. After repentance my heart felt as if a heavy burden had been lifted from it and danced with joy and gratitude for the forgiveness that was blessed upon me by my Heavenly Father (even when those that we offended were not so generous nor forgiving).

“Trust the past to God’s mercy, the present to God’s love and the future to God’s providence.” St. Augustine of Hippo

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Goelekh (Isaiah 49:26&60:16The LORD Thy Redeemer) that when I repent, You gently redeem me back into Jehovahs holy family. I praise You in Your kind, loving name. Amen

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

He is the Best Surgeon.

 I do not act like the sinful people of the world. I allow the Holy Spirit to change my life. First of all, I allow Him give me a new mind. Then I know what God wants me to do. And the things I do will be good and pleasing and perfect. Romans 12:2 The Holy Bible The New Living Translation

The Holy Spirit is like a surgeon.

He is the best surgeon because He is a brain surgeon, spirit surgeon and physical surgeon.

He operates on our minds to cut out the disease of sinful thoughts like a surgeon digs out cancer with amazing precision that would make all other surgeons drool.

He slices out the darkness in our spirit to replace it with Jehovahs loving light. Through this He changes our bodies to live a more healthy lifestyle which helps us to to transform ever more to do the things that are good and pleasing to our Heavenly Poppa.

Wow, He truly is the best surgeon.

The Holy Spirit is the best make over artist there is. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Holy Spirit Rophe (Exodus 15:26 The LORD (our) Healer) for preforming precision surgery on my mind and heart to remove the diseased parts filled with the filth of satan and healing me with the balm of Jehovahs love. I exalt You in the name of the greatest Healer of all, Jesus Christ. Amen

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

So Too is it With

Because I am in Christ [that is, grafted in, joined to Him by faith in Him as Savior], I am a new creature [reborn and renewed by the Holy Spirit]; the old things [the previous moral and spiritual condition] have passed away. Behold, new things have come [because spiritual awakening brings a new life]. 2 Corinthians 5:17 The Holy Bible, The New Living Testament Version

WE MUST LET GO

Have you ever seen them graft one tree into another?

I have always found that fascinating. The grafted part becomes a part of the tree. It depends upon it for sustenance. Indeed, if it was a different species it now becomes a new one.

So too is it with our relationship with Christ.

The moment we accept Him as our Saviour, King and best friend He begins grafting us into one of His own. We depend upon Him for our mental, physical and spiritual health.

The things that once fascinated us soon become repugnant and repulsive to us.

Now, we have become more like Him we have the same disposition as Him and the same fancies.

This is strange to those on the outside and so they mock us. That is to be expected because those on the out side mocked Jesus as well.

The Holy Spirit is the best make over artist of all Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Bore (Isaiah 40:28 The LORD Creator ) for blessing me with grafting me into You most beautiful holy family. I thank you in the name of He whose blood made it all possible Jesus Christ. Amen

May the light of Christs love shine brightly in your heart today and every day Joseph a son of Jehovah

I am Not Afraid Of

I am not afraid of those that attack me, for the Lord my God will fight for me.’ Deuteronomy 3:22  The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

BE STILL

There has been so many times when I was bullied when a child it left me with little confidence.

The more Jehovah came into every being of my life the less fear there was of others and the more confidence there was in Him.

It did not happen all at once but took many decades of experience with Him. Especially with me, having a strong independent streak in me it was difficult to surrender the situation to Him.

Now, when situations arise where there is a threat from someone there is no fear in this child of His’ heart. There is complete trust that my Big Daddy in Heaven is bigger, stronger and much more resourceful that any that attempt to abuse me.

The more we mature in Jehovah the less fear we will have of others. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Gibbor Milchamah (Psalms 24:8 The LORD Mighty In Battle) that when ever someone unfairly attempts to abuse me You have taught me to step back and allow You to handle the situation. You are the smack down champion of the universe and beyond. I exalt You in the name of He who smacked satan down in the wilderness Jesus Christ. Amen May

Christ bless you with love, joy and peace today and every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

I Like to Do It Incognito

 “Watch out! Don’t do your good deeds publicly, to be admired by others, for you will lose the reward from your Father in heaven. When you give to someone in need, don’t do as the hypocrites do—blowing trumpets in the synagogues and streets to call attention to their acts of charity! I tell you the truth, they have received all the reward they will ever get. But when you give to someone in need, don’t let your left hand know what your right hand is doing. Give your gifts in private, and your Father, who sees everything, will reward you. Matthew 6:1-4 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

CHRIST FIRST, OTHERS SECOND

The other day while walking down the hallway after visiting a friend in the hospital I noticed little plaques on the wall with names of folks who donated to the hospital. The bigger the donation, the bigger the plaque.

It was the same in a church I recently dropped off clothing to give to others for free. I could not help but think that although these were generous gifts they were given out of excess and were given to puff up the ego of the giver.

How many of the parishioners gave out of their meager wages denying themselves for the good of the church or hospital?

To me, these are the real generous givers.

It is the same when I watch folks running for a cause like cancer.

How many of them are running with selfie sticks?

Are they running for the cause of a cure for cancer or for the cause of puffing up themselves?

When I give, I like to do it incognito, because of the disdain for being applauded for it in public. Instead I always give thanks to Jehovah for the idea to give to that specif cause and for the opportunity to do so with great joy.

Give but give with the object of giving glory to Jehovah not to self. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El Simchath Gili (Psalms 43:4 GOD My Exceeding Joy) for guiding where to give and how much to give to those who You deem worthy. Doing so creates a heart that beats with ecstatic joy in helping while giving glory to You magnificent name.                                       I praise You in the name of He who gave the ultimate sacrifice for me 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. May you be blessed with numerous opportunities to share these gifts with others today.   Joseph a son of Jehovah

May My Prayers be Filled With

Thank you Jehovah Shalom (Judges 6:24 The LORD (our) Peace ) for blessing me with a good nights sleep and the gift of a new day filled with plenty of opportunities to bring You glory.

WORSHIP

At the end of the day may my prayers be filled with praise for all the gifts great and small that You have given me. As a contented kitten may I lay my head to rest reflecting upon all of Your wonderful love You have shared with me this day.

In the name of my loving big brother that I walk with through out the day I humbly ask and give praise, Jesus Christ unto You my adoring Heavenly Father. 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
