To My Dear Cherished

In the morning, O Lord, I will direct my song and my prayer unto You and will look up. (Psalm 5:3)

To My dear cherished Poppa : Good morning Poppa This is the day that You have made and I rejoice and be glad for the gift of it.

With gratitude, I thank You for preserving my life for one more day.

With gratitude, I thank you for Your ultimate gift of love for me, in the form of Your Son and the sacrifice of His life on my behalf. Because of this overwhelming gift that I often cannot comprehend, I humbly submit to You.

I know Lord, that I am a mere human and cannot instruct You, but you Lord bless me with The Holy Spirit to instruct me.

So teach me Your ways that I may rely on Your steadfast faithfulness. Teach me to number my days and to use my time wisely. I don’t know what this day holds, but I know that You hold the day.

It was you that laid the foundations of the Earth and therefore understands every part of it. I know that you keep the sun in the sky, the stars in place, and have created this Earth for me to inhabit and enjoy.

Throughout this day, may I be always be keenly aware of Your presence in everything I do – as I commute to work, drop children off at school, keep house and speak with my neighbors.

May my life be a living example and may others see Christ in me.

There are many that are hurting in this world – may I be a salve to someone today Lord, in a way that I can’t even imagine.

May my words be seasoned with salt and minister grace to all that hear.

May my actions be aligned with your Word.

I pray for wisdom that is peaceable, gentle, and approachable, with lots of mercy and fairness. You said an unlimited supply of wisdom is available to me if I simply ask, I so humbly request for wisdom to know how to deal with the many people and situations that will cross my path.

I pray for protection throughout this day; protect from harm and evil; go before me, to the left and right of me and behind me. Guide my steps so that I walk worthy of Your calling throughout this day. May I always be sensitive to Your promptings – whether it shows up as a gentle tug or a strong conviction. I pray for reconciliation in families, in nations and to You.

I pray that all may come to know you and be reconciled back to You.

Poppa, you know my faults and my flaws, please forgive me for being unkind with my words and my thoughts; forgive me for being self-serving; forgive me for holding on to old wounds instead of giving them to You.

Please forgive me, Poppa. When I am overwhelmed, confused, unsure, and restless, help me run to Your Word, The Holy Bible.

May your Word come alive to me so that it is a living guide in every situation I encounter this day.

Help me, Poppa, to remember the promises of your Word and bring the right passage to my remembrance for the situation I encounter. I acknowledge Poppa that I need to spend more time with You reading and praying so that I am prepared for whatever the day brings. Poppa I know that your Word is indeed a light unto my feet and a light unto the path You have chosen for me to walk this day .

Please remove fear and anxiety. from my heart and mind . As believers You have not given me a spirit of fear, but of love power and a sound mind. So when I are fearful, please remind me of Your love for me and use that love as the impetus to love others and see situations differently; may I tap into the power that you have given me, for I am never alone because You have not left me comfortless.

May Your wisdom be the underpinnings for my sound mind.

May I remember that I do not have to be anxious and when I am tempted to be anxious or worrisome, may I verbalize my concerns to you and then leave them there as You taught me to do. Worry does me no good and limits me, and You do more with my worry than I ever could. So please help me to turn all of my anxious thoughts and nerve-wracking situations over to You; to truly do that and trust that You are working. That You are working all things together for my good because You love me; that You are working in ways that I cannot comprehend because Your ways always supersede mine. And that in this working You are molding me continually into masterpieces fit for Your use.

Thank You for increasing my faith and capacity to love You by being loving towards others just as You are loving towards me.

As a child of yours Lord, I know that I am Your masterpiece though sometimes I feel so far from it. Please help me to remember my worth in You when I’m faced with challenging situations.

When I feel depressed, help me to remember that I am fearfully and wonderfully made in Your image , a replica of You and that You loved me so much You thought that I was worth dying for.

I do not know anyone that would die for me, but Your beautiful Son, my best friend did, and I’m eternally grateful and humbled for His supreme gift of love towards me.

For the unseen, Poppa, I thank you. You are beyond understanding, You are abundant, you are mine, and I am Yours. I totally and completely submit everything in my life to You today,

I humbly request this in the name of He who humbly went to the cross for me, Jesus Christ. Amen.

May your heart, mind and feet walk hand in hand with Christ this day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Trying to Pollute Our

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Ganan (The Lord is Our Defense Psalms 89:18) that because You had enemies pursue You, You understand what it is like to be hounded by the wicked.

Just as You stood for what is right and opposed what was wrong You had more enemies than friends. So, You understand what we experience by the wicked in our society.

Just as You encountered many phonies trying to lead the many astray You know what we have to deal with, with the politically correct liberals in our society today trying to pollute our childrens minds.

Because You have encountered all these wicked attacks You know how to protect us from them and how to give us the weapons to defend ourselves from them.

If need be, You send angels to protect us. No matter what they do to our earthly bodies our eternal spiritual bodies belong to You and at the proper time, You shall send angles to usher us into our eternal Heavenly Home.

Because of these truths I am encouraged to go out into the dark world and shine Your light to all those that are encountered. Those that are receptive You will guide into the light as well. That that reject Your light You shall protect me from.

All praise and glory unto You my mightiest Warrior King. I Your name I exalt Thee. 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

For Your Gift

Oh Jehovah Abba (God our Father) 1 John 3:1 thank You for Your promise that your mercies are new every morning and Your faithfulness is great.

Thank you for your amazing power, great love and work in my life every day.

Thank you for Your endless goodness and bountiful blessings over me. I am so grateful that You are always with me through the toughest of times.

Thank you the power and strength that The Holy Spirit, who dwells with in me, blesses me with every day.

Thank you that Your mercy and grace is always with me.

Thank you for allowing the incredible sacrifice You allowed Your most precious Son to sacrifice for me so that I have freedom and life in communion with You.

Please forgive me when I neglect to thank you for the generous blessings You give me every day, for all You have done in my life and for all You are doing in my life.

Please help me to set my eyes and heart on you afresh today.

Please renew my spirit every morning and fill me with Your peace and joy. Thank you that your ways are far greater than my ways and Your thoughts far deeper than my thoughts.

Thank you for Your plan to redeem me and that in You, all things are made new.

Thank you that Your face is towards the righteous, You are close to the brokenhearted, You hear my cries, and know my heart.

Thank you for Your daily, powerful presence in my life, that I am assured, no matter what I am facing, Your heart is towards me, Your eyes are over me, and Your ears are open to my prayers.

Thank you that you surround us with favor as with a shield, and I am safe in Your care.

I humbly ask that You would keep my footsteps firm on solid ground, helping me to be consistent and faithful.

Please give me supernatural endurance to stay the course in life which You have chosen for me to walk to Heaven, not swerving to the right or to the left, or being too easily distracted by other things that would seek to call me away from a close walk with You.

I pray for your protection over my life, my family, and other believers.

I ask for your hand to cover us and keep us distanced from the evil intent of the enemy, that you would be a barrier over us and we would find refuge in you.

I pray You would give me discernment and insight beyond my years to understand Your will, hear Your voice, know Your ways and be obedient unto them all.

Please shine Your light in me, through me, and over me. May I make a difference in my family, my neighbourhood and this world for your glory, so your purposes would stand. Set Your way before us this day and every day.

May all Your plans in my life succeed.

May I reflect your peace and hope to a world that so desperately needs Your presence and healing. I deeply love You and need You Lord in every aspect of my life, this day and every day.

I give You praise and thanks, for You alone are worthy, and I are more than conquerors through the gift of Jesus Christ! In Jesus’ Name 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 Only Thing We Can Give

But who am I, and who are my people, that we could give anything to you? Everything we have has come from you, and we give you only what you first gave us! 1 Chronicles 29:14 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Jesus came to us, not the other way around. He blessed us with His love.

The greatest possession we are ever blessed with is a loving relationship with Jesus. Joseph a son of Jehovah

The only thing we can give Jesus worth any value is our love in return.             

Yes, we give Him our personal love but we are also to share His love with the world and by the Holy Spirits guidance bring as many of the lost sheep into Christs flock as He guides us to.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Heseh (God is love 1 John 4:16 ) for blessing me with the most precious of treasures, You Divine love.          Please bless me with plenty of opportunities to share it with others in a manner in which they will desire to become Your cherished children as well.  I humbly ask this in the name of my most special big brother Jesus Christ. Amen

May Gods sunshine always bless you with brightening your day with His love, joy and peace. 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

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

You are The

My Holy Cherished Beloved Father, You are the love of my live and I deeply respect, admire and worship You.

Thank you for blessing me with the Holy Spirit to guide me into an ever deeper prayer life and intimacy with You, Jesus and the Holy Spirit.

One of the wonderful things about youse is that it is impossible to ever know Youse completely. There is always something more You teach me about Yourselves which amazes me and enlarges my love for Youse.

The greatest joy of my life is when we communion together.

The next greatest is when I share this with others and it guides them to You.

Happy are those who hear the joyful call to worship, for they will walk in the light of your presence, Lord. Psalm 89:15 The Holy Bible, Living Translation

You will show me the way of life, granting me the joy of your presence and the pleasures of living with you forever. Psalm 16:11 The Holy Bible, Living Translation

The one thing I ask of the Lord— the thing I seek most— is to live in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, delighting in the Lord’s perfections and meditating in his Temple. Hear me as I pray, O Lord. Be merciful and answer me! Psalm 27:4,7 The Holy Bible, Living Translation

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

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

There is Only One Cure

 So don’t worry about tomorrow Matthew 6:34 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Every one of us has it: the worry thief.

We worry about family, we worry about our health, we worry about our country, we worry about our finances. The list just goes on and on.

And what is the result of this?

It destroys our mental and physical health.

There is only one cure and His name is Jesus. When we trust Jesus and place all of our cares into His loving hands He calms the storms around us.

He has done it for me. I used to be the worry wort king, not any more.

Why not give Him a try?

Jesus always provides the solutions for all of our problems. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Shammah (Ezekiel 48:35 The LORD Is There ) for always being there with me every step of my life. Even though I walked through unknown terrifying territory, as I learned to place my fragile hand in Yours, I learned to have confidence in You. This has blessed me with peace and assurance every day of my life and will all the way until reaching Your Heavenly home. I praise You in the name of He who walked through powerful storms and darkest nights with His beloved disciples, Jesus Christ. Amen

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

I Give All My

For he has rescued me from the kingdom of darkness and transferred me into the Kingdom of his dear Son, who purchased my freedom and forgave my sins. Colossians 1:13 – 14 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

 I believe in the Lord my God, and I will be able to stand firm. 2 Chronicles 20:20 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Some words have been changed to first person so it is us personally that He is speaking to. This makes them far more effective and powerful.

The Holy Spirit is the best cleaner of all. When we daily surrender our dark thoughts to Him that satan places there, He will sweep them clean out of our heads and replace them with the sweet brilliant light of Jehovahs love.

When there is a battle in our mind and it seems as if the devil is going to win, call in the Holy Spirit. The demons run with sparks flying off their feet when the Holy Spirit enters into the fray.

When it appears as if satan is going to win the battle for my mind, I call upon the ultimate Warrior to come to my defense, The Holy Spirit. Satan and his lackeys run like their pants are on fire when He enters the ring.  Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Gador Milchamah (The Lord is Mighty in Battle Psalms 24:8 ) that You are the ultimate fighter and winner in the constant battle for my mind. I tremble to think of where it would go if not for Your protection. I exalt You in the name of the ultimate victorious Warrior King, 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 This article and photo @ 2020 Joseph a son of Jehovah. All rights reserved. Used only by permission of the author.
