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

To My Dear Jesus

Dear Jesus,

Help me to spread Your fragrance wherever I go.
Flood my soul with Your Spirit and life.
Penetrate and possess my whole being so utterly,
that my life may only be a radiance of Yours.

Shine through me, and be so in me
that every soul I come in contact with
may feel Your presence in my soul.

Let them look up, and see no longer me, but only Jesus!
Stay with me and then I will begin to shine as You shine,
so to shine as to be a light to others.

The light, O Jesus, will be all from You; none of it will be mine.
It will be You, shining on others through me.
Let me thus praise You in the way which You love best,
by shining on those around me.

Let me preach You without preaching, not by words but by my example,
by the catching force, the sympathetic influence of what I do,
the evident fullness of the love my heart bears to You.
Amen.

—Inspired by John Henry Cardinal Newman’s own prayer, prayed by Mother Teresa daily after holy communion.

May you be blessed with many opportunities to shine the light of Christ’s love to others this day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Giving to Me Through

For you know that God paid a ransom to save you from the empty life you inherited from your ancestors.1 Peter 1:18-19 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation.

We all have them, less than desirable traits that we inherit from our biological family. They are both physical and mental.

Once we become a member of Christs royal family, the Holy Spirit slowly burns off these impurities and refines us into precious jewels in Jehovahs family. It is not all accomplished at once but rather over a life time.

Some happen instantaneously by the power of the Holy Spirit. That is what happened to me when I was freed from alcoholism. Some take time and effort with the Holy Spirits help. That is what happened with me in being much more patient with difficult folks.

Some must be accomplished on a daily basis. That is what is done with my diet, exercise and sleep habits. Since following the Holy Spirits guidance I have lost thirty pounds and still have thirty to go.

We do not become our purest until we are in our Heavenly home. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Bore (Isaiah 40:28 The LORD Creator ) for blessing me with purging me of the less than admirable attributes I was born with and creating in me desire Heavenly qualities that are pleasing to You, inspiring to others and life giving to me through the Holy Spirits quality workmanship. I exalt You in the name of He who has the most Divine characteristics of all, Jesus Christ. Amen

I love to share the events in my life where Jehovah, Jesus and they Holy Spirit have touched me. How can I not. They were life changing. Joseph a son of Jehovah

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

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

May I Always Be

Thank you Jehovah Bore (Isaiah 40:28 The LORD Creator ) for the amazing ways in which You have taken this dirty lump of clay and have transformed me into a Divine work of priceless art.

May I always be profitable to Your kingdom all the day of my life which You have numbered for me to walk this journey on this world.

May I always follow the Highway to Heaven You have chosen for me to travel home.

May I always follow Your bright guiding light no matter how deep the darkness is which surrounds me.

Thank you that I am so more precious in Your eyes than You could ever be in mine no matter how deeply I am in love with You.

I give thanks to You my precious Love in the name of my loving Savior whose blood made this Divine relationship possible, 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

Walking with Me

Thank you Jehovah Immanuel (God is with us John 15:1-27 ) for walking with me today.

Please open my mind to experience the power of Your Word as I read Christian devotionals this morning and help me to remember them in my daily life.

Please open my ears to hear Your soft gentle voice as it guides me through this day.

Help me to listen to Your voice over all the competing noises that assault me every day with satans messages.

Please always keep me close to You as this daily journey continues for satan and his goons are always looking for straying sheep.

I humbly request this in the name of my most loved Sheppard, Jesus Christ. Amen

Jesus is walking with us every moment of every day only when we are walking on the same path as He is on. Joseph a son of Jehovah.

Keeping Our Eyes On

 We do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus, the champion who initiates and perfects our faith Hebrews 12:2 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

I have travelled a lot and taken only two routes.

The first one was to wing it. Let’s just go and see where the road will take us. Although it was adventurous, it was also very dangerous at times and there were many times I had to back track.

On the other hand, when I followed a map the journey was a lot less stressful and unnecessarily complicated.

Once we become Christians we depend upon Jesus to lead us where our Heavenly King desires His free will servant to go. During the journey He initiates circumstances which will strengthen our faith, trust, in Him. This causes us to trust Him more, respect Him more, appreciate Him more and most importantly, to love Him more.

How can you see where you are going? With keeping your eyes on the map and Jesus is the map? Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Roi (Psalms 23:1 The LORD My Shepherd ) for constantly guiding this gullible sheep that could easily be led astray if left on my own. Thank you for blessing me with fine tuning me to be ever more mature every day. I praise You in Your wise 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 T

You Are a Chosen One.

 I chose you. John 15:19 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

The next time you are feeling down just remember, you are a chosen one.

You did not come to Jesus, He came to you.

He did not come for you to sit on your hands and wait for Him but rather for you to serving the Supreme King. He has a specific job just for you. You were created to serve the most loving, special King of Kings.

Now how are we to know how to serve Jesus?

Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take. Proverbs 3:6 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Your will be done, not mine is the Christian motto. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Melech Olam (Psalms 10:16 The LORD King Forever ) for coming a knocking at the door of my heart and choosing to have me as one of Your loyal free will servants. It is the greatest honour that can be bestowed upon anyone. Thank you that through this relationship You have blessed with with nurturing a ever closer loving relationship with each other very day.  I praise You in Your majestic name. Amen       

May you be blessed with many opportunities to serve our Heavenly King today.  Joseph a son of Jehovah

But to Make Us

 “Comfort, comfort my people,” says your God. Isaiah 40:1 The Holy Bible, The New Living Version

Yes, Jehovah puts us through the furnace of affliction to burn off the dross (but off our bad dispositions and habits) but He also does so so that we will be able to comfort others when they go through the furnace or through their hard times.

As Jehovah lovingly comforts us, so too are we to follow His example and comfort others. One benefit of this compassion is this will serve as a great opportunity to encourage them to desire to become members of His family.

“God does not comfort us to make us comfortable, but to make us comforters.” — J. H. Jowett

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Shammah ( The Lord is Present Hebrews 13:5 ) for blessing me that You have walked with me through all of my trials and tribulation, sorrows and being put through the furnace of affliction. Please bless me with opportunities to walk with others in their times of need as well. I sincerely ask this in the name of He who walked in the furnace with Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego Jesus Christ. 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

Are You a Christ Copy Cat?

And you should imitate me, just as I imitate Christ. 1 Corinthians 11:1 The Holy Bible, The New Living Version

Are you a Christ copy cat?

Jesus called out to them,“Come, follow me.” Matthew 4:19 The Holy Bible, The New Living Version

Make no doubt about it, when Christ calls us (and He comes to us before we come to Him) He does so not only to be our Savior but also to be our King.

Now He is a good King who leads by example (that is what all good leaders do. Think about that the next time you vote in any election).

But, He expects us to follow His leading.

Anyone who does not serve Jesus as king in their life is not a Christian Joseph a son of Jehovah

That sounds pretty severs doesn’t it?

But, will Jesus welcome you as the good servant at Heavens Gate or will He tell you to get away from Him as you are cast into Hell?

Now, as you serve Christ in your life you will draw others towards you. You will serve as their guide to Christ. As a Christ follower you are to be an example of imitating Christ to your protege.

Speaking from personal experience that is a difficult but oh so rewarding task to accomplish for the glory of Christ and the salvation of another.

When you become a Christian, you are putting yourself on display for the world to see Christ through you. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Oh my adoring Jesus Christ Pyyrand (Jesus my best friend John 15:15 ) I idolize you so much and have a deep desire to emulate You in all of my thoughts, words and deeds.                                              Please Holy Spirit help me to live my life in harmony with Jesus so as to not only please Him but to be a bright shining light to guide those in darkness to His divine light.                                                               I sincerely request this in the name of the light of the world, 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
