Into One of Two

If they had longed for the country they came from, they could have gone back. Hebrews 11:15 The Holy Bible New Living Translation

Personally, I find folks fall into one of two categories concerning the past. This is truer the older you get.

One is the side where everything was sunshine and lollipops. They do not remember the hard times nor the bad ones. They desire to live looking back.

The other is the Gloomy Guses. They only remember the bad times. They do not remember the good times.

Even though sometimes it is good to reflect back the most important thing is to keep looking forward. Forward to the Heavenly home that is awaiting us. You cannot see where you are going if you are looking back. Joseph a son of Jehovah

HEAVENS HOME

PRAYER: Thank you Jehovah Elohenu Olam (Psalms 48:14) – Our Everlasting GOD for being my God in the past, my God in the present and most importantly, my God with whom I am blessed to share eternity with. I praise You in the name of my best friend I long to walk through eternity with Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Have you been there yet?

GOD IS IN THE FURNACE WITH US

I want to know Him and the power of His resurrection and the fellowship of His sufferingPhilippians 3:10  The Holy Bible, The New Transaltion Version

Have you been there yet?

You know, have you walked through the valley of Hell. A place of fire and torment.

I have. It was during a toxic relationship. The person was terribly abusive, mean spirited,selfish and cruel. I stayed believing I could help this person. Of course they must want to resolve their issues and take action themselves. This person did not want to change their behavior. Finally I walked away.

Then, came another time of hell, the time of recovering from the abuse. I kept on calling out to God, but He was silent.

Thankfully God did direct me to the resources needed to recover. It took a year.

Through that time I developed a very deep and personal relationship with God. There was no other way for this relationship to exist except my going through the hell first to get rid of the toxic relationship that put a chasm between us.

In time the wounds were healed and my spirit resurrected into the family of Christ.

If you are going through the fire right now perhaps it in necessary to burn off bad habits or beliefs.

My trying to serve this abusive person prevented me from serving God. So, He just stepped back and allowed the abusive person to do their worst (a boy did they do a job on me) to burn off my feeling of obligation to them. Once the relationship ended, then came the healing.

Through the healing came a deep love for and respect for God.

So too is it possible for you.

If you are going through that hell, whether it be an addiction or toxic relationship or health or financial problems perhaps it is because you need to have something burned off that restricts you from your relationship with God.

Yes definitely get help.

I am so happy I did.

They helped open my eyes to a lot of things that has helped me ever since. At the completion of this time your spirit will be resurrected into a close relationship with God.

Believe me it hurts God too to have to step back and watch you go through this, but it is necessary.

Even though it hurts our Beloved to watch, He does step back and allow us to go through Hell to get us into Heaven. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) Judges 6:12 for blessing me with walking through my time of torment and agony. Thank you for healing me when You finally had enough and guided me away from the tormentor. I would never had made it without You. With my deepest gratitude I thank you in the name of the greatest Healer of all, 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

Have My Joy Fulfilled

joy-and-peace

 But the fruit of the Spirit [the result of His presence within us] is love [unselfish concern for others],joy, [inner] peace, patience [not the ability to wait, but how we act while waiting], kindness, goodness, faithfulness. Galatians 5:22 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

I do not believe I have ever seen so many depressed and spiritually empty souls as there is today.

That is because they are happiness junkies. They are constantly seeking out physical stimuli to fill there desire for a few fleeting moments of happiness. You see these thrill junkies when they are having fun but have you seen them when they are not feeding their addiction to an adrenaline rush? The same is said for the fashion freaks with each new style or sports freaks with their teams or the list goes on. Just like a drug junkie when they do not have their fix they are irritable and depressed.

Happiness is physical and fleeting. Joy is spiritual and ever lasting. I choose joy. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Now, although we are a minority, I am and have seen Jesus junkies. We are the type that constantly needs a fix of Jesus’ Holy love, peace and joy. Of course, the only way to obtain this unending supply of these cherished gifts is to nourish an obedient loving relationship with Him. We do not require outside stimuli to get our fix because when we dwell with Christ it is in our Holy DNA every moment of every day.

“The Bible talks plentifully about joy, but it nowhere talks about a “happy Christian.” Happiness depends on what happens; joy does not. Remember, Jesus Christ had joy, and He prays “that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves.”” — Oswald Chambers

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-‘Ori (the Lord is my Light) for blessing me with Your amazing love and joy that You abundantly shine Your divine light into my heart each and every day. I am eternally grateful for this cherished blessing in the name of the light of my life Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Satisfy the Heart

heart-at-peace

 In peace [and with a tranquil heart] I will both lie down and sleep, For You alone, O Lord, make me dwell in safety and confident trust. Psalm 4:8 Holy Bible Amplified Bible

Today I see so much anger, depression and stress.

Do you wonder why?

Many say it is because we live in such a fast paced world where folks want instant gratification.

When I walk, sit down and enjoy communion with my Beloved in Gods Cathedral (nature) I experience peace and tranquility such as may be blessed in no other manner.

Many say it is because with the electronic and internet world there is no face to face conversations anymore and society does not nurture personal relationships.

No matter where I am Jehovah is always there and we share casual and deep conversations. He never puts me on hold, is too busy or bored to share communion with me. We enjoy a deep loving, respectful relationship.

Many face deep depression because they have no one to talk with and listen to them or bless them with wise advice.

Jehovah is always there, Jehovah always cares. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Jehovah is always there for me when I need Him. He patiently listens to my cries and when I am exhausted he blesses me with His gentle love ans peace. Then He blesses me with Divine wisdom to resolve all my problems.

Read your Bible about what Jesus experienced when he walked amongst us. There is not one thing you are going through that he has not experienced.

What are you waiting for Child?

Jehovah is waiting for you with open loving arms. Go to Him and He will bless you with Heavenly peace, love and joy.

“Who except God can give you peace? Has the world ever been able to satisfy the heart?” Gerard Majella

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Shalom (The Lord blesses with Peace) for blessing me with peace through the many storms in my life. Thank you with blessing me with Your Heavenly joy that is only nurtured through daily communion with You. Thank you for blessing me with the most awesome love affair there ever was, is and can be. I thank you for these cherished treasures through the Prince of Peace Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Counsel and Understanding are His.

GODS ASSURANCE

 “To God belong wisdom and power;  counsel and understanding are his. Job 12:13 Holy Bible, New International Version

Where do you go for counseling?

Some go to psychiatrists but they receive their flawed understanding from man. How many of them deal with your problems by pushing drugs on you?

I prefer to go to Jesus. The wonderful thing about Jesus is not only His infinite wisdom and power but because He suffered as we have He has been there and done it He understands everything we endure. Perhaps that is why He is called a wonderful councillor. Now He may guide you to qualified Christian counsellors or through His word and power along with His wisdom He may assist you on His own. I was blessed that He provided me with both.

Some go to these questionable counsellors you see on TV. But can they provide you with the wisdom and power that Christ can or do they go for TV ratings and your pocket book?

Some go to self help books but again, can they and do they give you individual counselling? Do they know you intimately like Jesus does? Do they love you like Jesus does? Can they bless you with power like Christ does?

Whenever I have a problem I always go to Jesus and He has a hundred per cent successes rate with me.

God delights to meet the faith of one who looks up to Him and says,“Lord, You know that I cannot do this—but I believe that You can!” –Amy Carmichael

How about you, where do you go for the best counselling?

Almighty God, who hast promised to hear the petitions of those who ask in thy Son’s Name: We beseech thee mercifully to incline thine ear to us who have now made our prayers and supplications unto thee; and grant that those things which we have asked faithfully according to thy will, may be obtained effectually, to the relief of our necessity, and to the setting forth of thy glory; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. BOOK OF COMMON PRAYER

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Ori (the Lord is my Light) for blessing me with lighting the way of life You have chosen for me to travel and for Your amazing wisdom and guidance to prudently resolve all the problems that darken my life. I extol Thee in the name of He whose light guides us to You and our Heavenly home Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

The Size of Your God.

DIVINE STRENGTH

<!--

Trials…may come in abundance. But they cannot penetrate into the sanctuary of the soul when it is settled in God, and we may dwell in perfect peace. –Hannah Whitall Smith

The difference between those in the world and those who belong to Christ is that we Christians have the strong hand of the Prince of Peace to walk us though our trials and tribulations while the world has no one and nothing. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Speaking from personal experience, I know both of these statements to be oh so very true. When I was not with Christ (He is always willing to be there for us if we allow Him to be) it seemed as if I was the only one in the universe and the worlds was crushing down upon my shoulder. When I did walk with Him not matter the trails and tribulations He blessed me with peace and strength to battle through them victoriously.

The peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:7 Holy Bible, New King James Version

You can tell the size of your God by looking at the size of your worry list. The longer your list, the smaller your God. –Author Unknown

It is not a sin to worry about things but it is pretty stupid to refuse to lay them at the feet of the best comforter and reassurer there is. Joseph- Anthony: Green

From my experience when I humbly, sincerely take it to Jesus He blesses me with super natural peace every time. Joseph- Anthony: Green Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Shalom (The Lord blesses with Peace) for blessing me with Your healing, calming and reassuring peace through my many fiery trials and tribulations, sorrows and snares. Jesus Christ. Amen. I glorify You in the name of my beautiful Prince of Peace Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

This is What They Need.

HOPE IN THE LORD

Whenever I am afraid, I will trust in You. Psalm 56:3 Holy Bible, New King James Version

Recently the news has been broadcasting about an epidemic of depression and suicide. The secular world is lost for answers to this plague. All your marches will produce nothing. All your government speeches sound pretty but are empty of results.

When I am afraid I go to my Beloved in prayer and He guides me to comforting verses in His guidebook to life (the Holy Bible). They comfort, calm and reassure me.

Whenever I am depressed (and we all get depressed from time to time) I go to my Beloved in prayer and He guides me to comforting verses in His guidebook to life (the Holy Bible). They comfort, calm and reassure me.

Whenever I become angry because of an injustice perpetrated against me I go to my Beloved in prayer and He guides me to comforting verses in His guidebook to life (the Holy Bible). They comfort, calm and reassure me.

Whenever I become lonely I go to my Beloved in prayer and He guides me to comforting verses in His guidebook to life (the Holy Bible). They comfort, calm and reassure me.

Whenever I question why I am here I go to my Beloved in prayer and He guides me to comforting verses in His guidebook to life (the Holy Bible). They comfort, calm and reassure me.

The Holy Bible is truly the only guidebook to life we will ever need along with prayer. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Our greatest comfort in sorrow is to know that God is in control. Lynn Thornton

As Christians it is our duty to guide those in the secular world to the Guidebook to life. This is what they need in the secular world but so strongly rejects. Woe is unto them, they have no hope.

We do not understand the intricate pattern of the stars in their courses, but we know that He who created them does, and that just as surely as He guides them, He is charting a safe course for us. Billy Graham

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Ezer (The LORD our Helper) for always being there to help me through my many trials and tribulations, sorrows and snares. If it were not for You my love I would have crashed and burned so many times in my life. I laud You in the name of the greatest whose precious blood made it possible for You to send the most wonderful Helper (the Holy Spirit) Jesus Christ. Amen.

May Jehovah bless you today and every day with His precious love, joy and peace.

He Hears You.

O You who hear prayer. Psalm 65:2 New King James Version

When you pray you are not praying to a dead idol made of wood or metal or some make believe fellow like Santa Claus or to dead souls, like the saints. That is foolishness.

Instead with reverence, love and sincerity pray to the living God whose throne is in Heaven.

He hears your cry when suffering sorrow. He blesses you with answers that give reassurance and healing.

He hears your cry when you need help. He answers with protection and resources to conquer your adversary.

He hears your cry when you are alone and feel dejected. He blesses you with filling you with His Divine love, comfort and encouragement. He hears your cry when you need guidance in your life. He blesses you with resources and guidance councilors to show you the path you must take.

He hears your cry when you are remorseful He not only forgives you but guides you in the proper manner to reconcile with the one you have done wrong. This blesses you with peace in your spirit.

He hears your cry when you need to learn something. He blesses you with wise teachers and mentors that reveal the knowledge you need.    And of course it is with pure delight he hears your song of praise for His love. To Him that is the sweetest song that ever exists. Of course when we are in a loving relationship we delight in sharing with the one we love how much we love them.

He cherishes your prayer of thank you when He blesses you. That is the respectful thing to do is it not? When you help someone does it not feel good when they thank you? How much more than should we thank our Beloved Father in Heaven when He blesses us?

GOD LOVES YOU

You do not need to make an appointment and he is never too busy. Jehovah is always there, Jehovah always cares. Joseph- Anthony: Green

When you continuously continue in a weakness (like being short tempered) He does not become exasperated with you and give up on you. When you honesty are repentant and humbly ask for forgiveness He will forgive you and thousand times a thousand.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Heseh (God is love) for being such a loving Father to this cherished child of Yours. Thank you for Your blessings of Your Hoy love, strength, wisdom, comfort and encouragement as Your never end provisions. I praise You in the name of Your most special blessing Your Holy Son Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

He is Your Best Stress Buster

Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you. 1 Peter 5:6-7 New International Version

Think of Christ as your best friend. You can unload all your problems upon Him. He is the wisest and knows how best to handle your problem. You can take all your worries, pains and frustrations to Him. He loves you and He cares.

Jesus loves you, He is always there, He always cares. Joseph- Anthony: Green

JESUS' LOVE

Now we must have faith and be patient.

Jesus works in His time, not ours.

Speaking from personal experience it took fourteen years of agonizing prayer and faith before Christ delivered me from my addiction to alcohol.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Shalom  (God of our peace) for the warm rays of peace that envelope me whenever the dark clouds of stress begin to encompass me and I call upon Your peaceful serene love to evaporate them. I joyously praise You for this wonderful blessing in the name of the Prince of Peace Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Given Me Life.

 

REST IN THE LORD

This is my comfort in my affliction, For Your word has given me life. Psalms 119:50 New King James Version

                                                                                                          

Remember that phrase from a popular movie :”Where ya gonna go?”  

                                                               

Well, where do you go when your heart is pierced like a knife?                                                                     

The only logical answer is the Bible.                                                                                                                     

The Christian has peace because he knows he is loved and cared for the by the Holy Spirit through Jesus Christs sacrifice by the grace of Jehovah . Joseph- Anthony: Green

Read of those whose hearts where pierced by sadness and grief and see how Jehovah gently healed them.                                                                                                                                                                                   

Do you have no job and your money is running out? Turn to your Bible and read about those that suffered the same fate and see how Jehovah delivered them. Now do not expect something like the widow and the oil like with Elijah but take comfort and have reassurance that Jehovah will deliver you.                                                                                                                                                                             

Are you suffering from some incurable disease and are slowly ebbing into your final days and are afraid of what death is like? Read your Bible and see how many of the patriarchs faced their final days.                                                                                                                                                                     

Are you facing a death in your family, read your Bible and take comfort and strength in how they handled the situation?                                                                                                                                           

Any and all tragic events in our life has been recorded in the Bible  in the lives of others to comfort and strengthen us.  Pray for Jehovah to guide you to the proper place in the Bible and to open your hearts and minds to what is occurring and how it relates to your present circumstance.

                                                                 

I do not need psychiatrists; I need the Bible to solve my problems. Joseph- Anthony: Green

And, if you read your Bible you will see that Jesus has experienced everything we have and so much more. So of course when we come to Him He understands. He has been there, done that.

 

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-‘Uzam  (The Lord is our Strength in Trouble) for blessing me with Your awesome strength that has carried me through so many trials and tribulations, sorrows and snares. Thank you for Your Devine Book of wisdom to encourage and strengthen us, the Holy Bible through the valleys in our lives. I exalt You in the name of He who taught this to any and all who were willing to listen and obey Jesus Christ. Amen.

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