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.

Can You Be Still?

heart-at-peace

 “ Be still and know (recognize, understand) that I am God. “ Psalm 46:10 Holy Bible Amplified Version

I believe one of the greatest problems in western society today is business.We are so busy with our jobs , families and past times that there is no room for daily communion with Jehovah.

Spending daily time with Jehovah is the best stress reliever there is. Joseph- Anthony: Green

The consequence of this is broken families where there are strangers living in the same house or apartment. This expands into our neighbourhoods , cities, provinces and countries. How many folks know their neighbours ?

How many folks know anything about the souls living in a different part of their country ?

As well, you destroy your mental , spiritual and physical health when you are constantly busy.

I cherish the time spent every day with my Beloved. Many times He reveals His attributes to me that expands my love , admiration and respect for Him. An added benefit is that there is a peace and security that lasts all day from that morning commune with Him.

How can you love a stranger ?

If you spend no time with Jehovah then how can you know Him ? If you do not know Him then how can you love Him?

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Pryyand- God is my friend for graceful kindness in spending time with me every day . It is the most cherished part of my day . I extol You in the name of my best friend Jesus Christ . Amen .

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

Who are You Walking With?

true-friendship

 He who walks [as a companion] with wise men will be wise,
But the companions of [conceited, dull-witted] fools [are fools themselves and] will experience harm.
Proverbs 13:20 Holy Bible Amplified Version

I find it quite humorous every time I see folks destroying their bodies with tattoos, body piercing and weird hair colouring just to look original when alls they are really doing is following the trends of the “ beautiful people “

This is not a new fade but has been going on for eons. I have seen many of them come and go in the decades I have been walking this planet and am always amazed at their foolishness. Sometimes when I meet someone I knew from a few decades back we always laugh at the silliness of it.

Children , the next time you are at grandma and grandpa’s house ask them to show you photo’s of your mom and dad when they were your age.

What is pitiful is seeing the older generation attempting to look young by keeping up with these silly fads.

The same thing can be said about the many disastrous choices we have all made because we were impressed by a Dapper Dan.

The wise learn from these ruinous experiences and seek out those who are wise and befriend them even though their lifestyle is not considered “ cool “ to those in the world.

The foolish persist in repeating the same ruinous pattern and choosing the same arrogant pretentious companions .

Choose your friends carefully because as they are so too will you become. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Pryyand (God is my friend ) for blessing me with wisdom to steer away from the destructive friends and towards Godly friends that we can share communion together as well as enjoy communion with You. I exhalt You in the name of my bestest friend 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.

Bring Me There

FULLFILLED DESIRES

 For the Lord God is a sun and shield; The Lord bestows grace and favour and honour; No good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly. Psalm 84:11 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Grace is defined as unmerited divine assistance given humans for their regeneration or sanctification and a virtue coming from God. Virtue is defined as conformity to a standard of right.

Therefore we need the Holy Spirits guidance and power to conform to Jehovahs Divine standard of morals in our lives. This is not a one off experience but rather a moment by moment, day by day experience. It is not anything we can accomplish by ourselves. Our intelligence is very limited compared to Jehovahs infinite wisdom. So we need to constantly depend upon His unlimited wisdom is every aspect of our lives.

To stumble on the little things will cause the big stumble to occur. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Our strength to live such lives is weak compared to the strength the Holy Spirit will instill in us to accomplish this feat. Once we begin to have integrity instilled in us we are not to become complacent and believe we will always have it. Satan is far smarter than us and can quickly strip it away from us. We are not to become arrogant towards others lest it be stripped from us to humble us.

“If I am not [in a state of grace], God bring me there; if I am, God keep me there!” — Joan of Arc

Prayer: Jehovah- Go’el (The Lord is my Redeemer) for Your awesome gift of graceful guidance in every aspect of my life. Thank you for not only forgiving me when I stumble and fall but with Your strong gentle hands lift me up to continue my walk towards the Heavenly home You have graciously prepared for me. I laud You in the name whose graceful sacrifice on the cross made it all possible Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Man Forgets His Purpose

with-all-your-heart

 He made Christ who knew no sin to [ judicially ] be sin on our behalf, so that in Him we would become the righteousness of God [ that is, we would be made acceptable to Him and placed in a right relationship with Him by His gracious loving kindness]. 2 Corinthians 5:21 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

There is only one supreme relationship we need to be fully concerned with.

It is not your family, your wife, your friends or your associates.

It is the relationship you have with Jehovah. When we are blessed with Holy Communion with him we need never ask why we are here. We know we are here to be blessed with the supreme love affair and that is with Jehovah. We need never ask what is the meaning of life because we know it is to be in an obedient, loving relationship with our Heavenly Father.

“Man, made in the image of God, has a purpose – to be in relationship to God, who is there. Man forgets his purpose and thus he forgets who he is and what life means.” — Francis Schaeffer

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah- M’Kaddesh ( The Lord is my Sanctifier ) for setting me apart from the world to be blessed with an awesome love affair with You. Thank you that because of this cherished gift I know the meaning of life and my purpose in it. I exalt You in the name of my precious King Jesus Christ who has given my life meaning and purpose. Amen

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

Wisdom is Having.

listen-to-our-wise-elders

Every prudent and self-disciplined man acts with knowledge, But a [closed-minded] fool [who refuses to learn] displays his foolishness [for all to see]. Proverbs 13:16 Holy Bible Amplified Version

I love to learn and am always willing to watch, listen, learn and be thankful towards my mentors. As a result there have been many disasters averted in my life.

A wise man listens, learns and obeys . Joseph- Anthony: Green

As for being self disciplined that requires the blessing of the Holy Spirit. We are all weak from time to time and need His infinite strength to get us through some trial and temptations. This as well has helped me avert many disasters in my life.

Wisdom is having knowledge and putting that knowledge into action. Knowledge comes from experience. Joseph- Anthony: Green

On the other hand I have seen far too many idiots continue upon the same road to disaster. No it is not repeating the same mistake.

The first time it is a mistake, after that it is just pain stupid and stubborn. Joseph- Anthony: Green

I have seen way too many needlessly suffer because of this.

When I was treeplanting I would take the rookies and teach them the proper way to plant ( there was a lot more to it than just slamming a tree into the ground ) at the geginnig of the season.. I was not paid to do this but did it because of the graciousness in my heart. As they honed their skills they began to plant more trees. We were paid by how many trees we planted so they began to make a lot more money. Then there were always the: “ I know, I knows.’ ). These are the ones that when I offered to teach them to plant they would always say I know what I am doing, I know. As a result they would work twice as hard as the ones that listened to me and make one third the amount of money.

Stupidness and stubbornness go hand in hand. Joseph- Anthony: Green

There is a price to pay for stupidity. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rabbi (God our Teacher) for all of Your patience and wisdom you have blessed me with through my walk with You. It has been a true God send in my life. I praise You in the name of the Supreme Rabbi Jesus Christ. Amen.

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