How to Have a Rewarding Day

be loving like jesus

 A generous man will prosper; he who refreshes others will himself be refreshed. Proverbs 11:25, New International Version

Kind words can be short and easy to speak but their echoes are truly endless. Mother Theresa

How to have a rewarding day: Sometimes it’s the little words that can have the biggest impact. When you see someone sad a simple hi or good morning accompanied with a sincere smile is all it takes to turn the gloomy day into a day of sunshine.

When someone is down a simple compliment like I like your outfit can really be a booster. A simple thank you can brighten a day.

Today, make an effort to say something nice to someone you see with the clouds of despair hanging over their head. Watch their face break out into a beautiful smile.

Better yet, when I was a child I belonged to a group that made it a practice to do at least one good deed a day. Why not make that a habit in your life and see how much it changes your life and the life of those around you.

You know what?

It will make you feel pretty good too.

We shall never know all the good that a simple smile can do. Mother Theresa

Prayer: Please my Beloved Father Jehovah Heseh (God is love) bless me to emulate You today, especially to someone who is in need of some tender loving care. May this be a catalyst to guide them to You which is the most loving thing I can do for anyone. I humbly ask this in the name of He who is the most loving of any who has walked this planet Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with peace and joy every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

They Do So.

praying in chinese church

 As you help us by your prayers. 2 Corinthians 1:11 The Holy Bible New Living Translation

Some folks mistakenly think that praying for others does not do any good.

They do so. I can recall numerous times when my prayer for others was answered in miraculous ways (and yes, they were miracles).

You need not look far to see folks that need a prayer. Ask them if you can pray for them and what their prayer request is. Then write it down. Keep in touch at least once a week. Let them know you are continuing to pray for them and see if there is anything else you can do for them (Jehovah will usually provide you with resources to help them and even if He does not the request often encourages them as much as the prayer).

Praying for others every day is an important intricate part of every Christians prayer. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Holy Spirit Shammah ( The Lord is Present) Hebrews 13:5 always be present during my intersession for other saints and guide me to those who need me to be their prayer warrior. I humbly request this in the name of He who taught me how to pray for others 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

God Blesses Those Who

GREED

God blesses those who patiently endure testing and temptation. Afterward they will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him. James 1:12 The Holy Bible New Living Translation  

I have seen too many egotistic folks or good hearted folks try to leave a legacy because they want to be remembered when they go over to the other side which is abused and forgotten in a few years. All the while they neglect their eternal inheritance which will be either very comfortable or extremely uncomfortable.

I choose the eternal inheritance of Christs kingdom over my ego every time. Joseph a son of Jehovah

I work to impress Jehovah, not man. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Have you ever heard of the old saying:”He would be rolling in his grave if he ever saw ___ (fill in the blank). I have seen many sacrifice their live and their health so that when they die they will leave a good inheritance for their children. When they die their children could care less and end up blowing their inheritance foolishly. Their parents would be rolling in their graves if they saw it.

Our inheritance has been turned over to strangers, our homes to foreigners. Lamentations 5:2 The Holy Bible New Living Translation

I have seen many buildings that in their time were extravagant luxurious statements to the community about the owners wealth that are now run down buildings used by drug addicts and for wild drunken orgies parties. Boy would they be spinning in their graves if they could see that.

On the other hand when we work for King Jesus, He will place a beautiful crown of glory on our heads when when enter Heavens Gate.

Remember that the Lord will give you an inheritance as your reward, and that the Master you are serving is Christ. Colossians 3:24 The Holy Bible New Living Translation

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Abba (God our Father) for blessing me with an amazing inheritance in Heaven with the best inheritance of all,spending eternity with You, Jesus, the Holy Spirit and fellow members of Your Holy Family. I praise You in the name of my big brother 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

Ask Them If

 

WISDOM LASTS AND ETERNITYHe who spares the rod hates his son, but he who loves him is careful to discipline him. Proverbs 13:24, New International Version

Now we need to understand this.

When children are young, they will push the limits to see what they can get away with.

First they must be warned such behavior is bad and explain why it is bad. Please do not just tell them it is bad or they must do it because you said so. Take the time to explain why they must do this or must not do that. It is even better when you share with them your personal experience so it makes it more real to them.

If they continue to push the envelope they must receive corporal punishment. One good swat will suffice most of the time or taking away a privilege like no mobile phone for a week.

Then sent to a quiet place to contemplate what they have done for about ten minutes. .

After that go sit down beside them. Hug them. Tell them you love them and it really hurt you to do what you had to do. Ask them if they understand. Usually they do. If they do, not try another way to explain it to them.

This is the method my mom used with us kids and I have used with children many times (being a teacher they were not my students but I loved them as if they were my own children). I speak from experience when I say they will love and respect you for it.

After that when they are naughty all I have to do is raise my voice in a firm controlled way to tell them to stop it and they instantly stop. Not out of fear, but rather out of love.

Without discipline there is chaos. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer:Please Jehovah Abba (God my Father) bless me to emulate You in the same manner in which You wisely teach Your children. I deeply desire them to be a blessing upon this earth not a curse. I humbly request this in the name of my big brother Jesus Christ. 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

I Choose Not to Choose

complete deditacation

 

P. T. Forsythe said, “The purpose of life is not to find your freedom. The purpose of life is to find your Master.”

Jesus is the best master

“He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake.” Psalm 23:3 New International Version

I choose not to choose my own path, but to follow the Holy Spirits guidance. Yes we should take it to God in prayer and honest Bible study before making a career choice.

This should be our Christian motto: “I choose not to choose.”

But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure and full of quiet gentleness. Then it is peace-loving and courteous. It allows discussion and is willing to yield to others; it is full of mercy and good deeds. It is wholehearted and straightforward and sincere” James 3:17 The Holy Bible King James Version

Take it to Jehovah for all of our life’s decisions. Whether it be a school to attend, a course to take a life mate or an investment.

“Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass” (Psalms. 37:5).The Holy Bible King James Version

Whatever, I believe in doing as the Jews do. Before making any decisions always take it to Jehovah in prayer for three days. See what the results may be. You may not like them in the short run. But, over time it may be revealed to you just how horrible a mistake you could have made if you went with what you thought was right .

“He guides the humble in what is right and teaches them his way.” (Psalm 25:9 The Holy Bible New International Version)

Independence is opening the door to allow satan into your life. We all know of course he is the master of destruction. Only a fool believes they are independent. They are easy prey for satan.

“All of us, like sheep, have strayed away. We have left God’s paths to follow our own” (Isaiah 53:6a The Holy Bible New Living Translation).

We therefore, have two choices in life: 1) Choose to allow the loving Father to guide our choices or

2) Let the destroyer and torturer (satan) make the choice by tricking us into believing it is our own choice.

“There is a way that appears to be right, but in the end it leads to death” Proverbs 14:12 (The Holy Bible New International Version).

I choose to let Jehovah choose, it is the smartest choice I have ever made.Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah for blessing me with sending the Holy Spirit El Deah (God of knowledge) to guide me through out the challenging discourse of life.              May I always listen , understand and obey His wise guidance.                                      I exalt You and humbly request this in the name of He who is the wisest of all 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

You Won’t Understand

TAKING IT TO OTHERS

Often people say to me “You just won’t understand.”
“You’re way too old,” or “Way too young,” or “YOU are NOT a man.”
I don’t know why some people feel they suffer unique pain.
As if they are the only ones who’ve lost or ceased to gain.
I don’t know why they hide their pain and clutch it ever tighter.
It seems to me that all should know – a burden shared gets lighter.
Why some folks even deign to think the pain that’s in their heart,
Is all their own, to keep and hoard, they set themselves apart. They keep their eyes from meeting mine lest I should see their hurt.
And even if we stop and speak their words are often curt.
The Bible says: ‘Two’ can withstand what overcomes just ‘one’.
And also that – a ‘Cord of Three’ can scarcely be undone.

Besides, I know the ways of hurt – my heart’s been crushed before.
Friends have betrayed – I’ve lost at love, Despair’s knocked at my door.
And I Remember – thoughts gone wild – and crying late at night.
Not having strength to care at all – much less the strength to fight.
But, someone special came to me – and when my trials were told. I realized that with their tears – they’d eased my heavy load. And so, I learned – that Pain – like Love – is bearable if shared. I don’t know what I would have done without that friend who cared.

My trials did not vanish fast – in fact the time was long. But sharing gave me breathing space until I could grow strong Enough to laugh again and even start to smile – And though it seemed it could not help – It eased my pain awhile. So, if you think that you can’t share cause I won’t understand. At least just give me half a chance to lend a helping hand. For I know that you’re hurting and I know a place to start. Perhaps if you could realize – your pain burns in my heart.

I know I cannot make your trials and troubles go away. But maybe I can help a bit to get you through today. And maybe by tomorrow you won’t need help anymore. But if you should – Don’t be ashamed – for that’s what friends are for.

And after all is said and done – the trials ceased – you’re whole. Perhaps you’ll know just what to do to help another soul – Who’s being crushed by hurt and pain – be it woman or a man. And you won’t have to hear them say, “You just won’t understand.”

-Author Unknown

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Uzam (The Lord is our Strength in Trouble)  Isiah 49:26  for walking with me through lo my many trials and tribulations, sorrows and snares. Please bless me with the opportunity to walk along side someone this day as they are walking through their dark valley just as You walked with me through my many dark and terrible valleys. I humbly request this in the name of He who walked through the valley of the shadow of death for me Jesus Christ. Amen

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love fill your heart today and every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Who May Ascend

LOOKING TO HEAVEN

Who may ascend onto the mountain of the Lord?
And who may stand in His holy place?
 He who has clean hands and a pure heart,
Who has not lifted up his soul to what is false,
 Nor has sworn [oaths] deceitfully. Psalm 24:3-4 The  Holy Bible Amplified Version                         

The mountain was the meeting place with Jehovah.

If we desire an intimate relationship with Him, when we come to Him in prayer it is necessary for us to not be worshiping anything or anyone else other that Him.

We need to have integrity in our lives. It is necessary that our hands are clean. That is, that we have dealt honestly with everyone and not been deceitful.

Our hearts are to be pure. That means that we are not thinking about fleshly lust or revenge or being arrogant towards others.

To lift up our soul falsely means that we are not to gossip (which is spreading lies about others and spreading rumors, which can hurt or destroy others) and are not to give false testimony about others which will hurt them in court or in relationships.

To swear an oath in deceit means that we make promises that we have no intention of keeping. That is a form of lying.

All of these things are detestable to Jehovah.

What right do you have to come to the temple of Jehovah when you are practicing the rituals of satan? Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Tsidkenu (The Lord is Righteousness) for teaching me and helping me to be righteous enough to enter into You most Holy Tabernacle (we have our own which is a great story). I love spending time with You more than anything else in this world and look forward to spending eternity with You. Thank you for convicting me of any offenses and the proper manner in which to repent of them. I praise You in the name of He whose blood opened the door to our Tabernacle Jesus Christ. 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.
