Even Though It Is Not Enjoyable


“Then he said to them all: ‘Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me.'” – Luke 9:23 The Holy Bible, The New International Version.

When we become Christians that means we accept Christ as our King. Because Christ belongs in the spiritual realm and the world belongs to the physical world, because Christ dedicates Himself to others we must follow His lead and dedicate ourselves to serving Him by serving others where He directs us to.

That is contrary to the world which serves themselves.

This means we are in a constant battle with the world (including ourselves at times when we want to serve self instead of Christ . The cross was a place of torture and intended shame. That is what we can expect from those walking the Highway to Hell. They will daily mock us and try to shame us. They will do everything they can to make our lives miserable. This will be a daily experience.

Even though it is not enjoyable, we should thank them for this treatment. Because, the more they make us suffer, the more they drive us into Jesus’ loving arms.

Torture me as you may, you will not destroy me but make me an ever stronger servant of my loving King Jesus. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Immeka (Judges 6:12 The LORD Is with You ) for the tormentors in my life because they draw me ever closer to You which is the greatest blessing of all. I esteem You in the name of He with whom I love to commune with every day, Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with drawing from the spring of living waters of comfort, strength and encouragement to extinguish the fiery arrows of the wicked, Jesus Christ. Joseph a son of Jehovah

No One can Hurt Your

No one can hurt your feelings without your consent. No one can make you angry, disappointed, intimidated, or jealous.

Substitute any reactive emotion with the wisdom, strength and self control of The Holy Spirit. Whatever it is, no one can afflict you with it without your consent.

You can choose to see things differently when you depend upon The Holy Spirit to open your eyes to Jehovahs meaning instead of societies or your own faulty reasoning. It’s the only one you’ll ever need.

The people we interact with become how we treat them, more than we’d like to admit. That is why wicked company corrupts godly souls while godly souls mould us more into Christs character.

Where there are no boundaries in life, there is no respect for either you nor those around you. Joseph a son of Jehovah

May The Holy Spirit keep you from the wicked who drag you into the pig mire and guide you to the godly who help you transform into a beautiful child of Jehovah Joseph a son of Jehovah

Oh Jehovah Shalom

Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Philippians 4:6 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Prayer: Oh Jehovah Shalom (The Lord blesses with Peace Isaiah 9:6, Rom 8:31-35 ) I thank you so much that I can always come to you with whatever is upsetting me. Every time You calm me down with Your gentle loving Divine peace and then softly speak to me and help relieve the stress I am experiencing.

Then You wisely explain the answer to all my questions and stressful situations. I am grateful that You have taught me to always come to You before I take any action.

I praise You in the name of the Prince of Peace Jesus Christ. Amen

Those who pray first, wait for the Lords answer and then be obedient unto His instruction have a lot less stress in their lives. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Jehovah ELOHIM YAKOL

Dear brothers and sisters, honor those who are your leaders in the Lord’s work. They work hard among you and give you spiritual guidance. Show them great respect and wholehearted love because of their work. 1 Thessalonians 5:12-13 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Why not give this a try: Say thank you to the stock boys and girls as well as the cashiers at stores. They work hard for little money and receive little gratitude for their hard work.

Give your doctor and thank you card and a home made gift in appreciation for all their hard work. Think about it, they put in long hours and listen to nothing but complaining all day long. That is depressing.

Why not shake a cops hand and thank them for their difficult job. They get crapped on for doing their job and crapped on for not intervening when they cannot.

How about adding pastors, choirs masters, teachers to the list. And you know what?

In doing so, you will find you have a much happier life and mentality.

A grateful life is a joyous life. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Oh, and do not forget to say thank you to our Heavenly Poppa when He blesses you. As well, begin and end your day with saying thank you to Him for all the blessing great and small and see how good of a nights sleep you get.

Always be joyful. Never stop praying. Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus. 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Prayer: Please Jehovah ELOHIM YAKOL (God, the Most Able 2 Corinthians 9:8 ) enable my heart to be gracious and grateful to all those I encounter this day so as to emulate You and be an encourager. I humbly ask this in the name of the greatest encourager of all, 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 to be shared with others.

May you be blessed with plentiful opportunities to share these with those around you today. Joseph a son of Jehovah

He Has Given Me

 God did not give me a spirit of timidity or cowardice or fear, but [He has given me a spirit] of power and of love and of sound judgment and personal discipline [abilities that result in a calm, well-balanced mind and self-control]. 2 Timothy 1:7 The Holy Bible, The New Living Testament Version

If Jehovah did not give it to us then who did?

It was satan that gave us a spirit of timidity where we are afraid to speak the truth. He did this to prevent us from from speaking the truth and bringing the lost to Christ. He also did it so that the wicked ones could gain power over the weak and abuse them to greater degrees. This has been done through out history where if the people spoke up in the beginning bad things like the Nazi’s would not have happened.

It was satan that gave us a spirit of cowardice so we would not stand up to bullies. This created terrible situations for entire societies (look again to Nazism). As well, he gave us a spirit of cowardice and fear so we would not step out into the unknown world Jesus is leading us to in service to Him.

Jehovah has, through faith, given us power to conquer evil folks and love to reach out to the unloved. He has blessed us with sound judgment so we will not fall for his schemes and scams. He gave us a spirit of discipline so we can grow in power in His spirit to live Godly lives.

This means living a life of having a well balanced mind that is balanced by the Holy Spirits guidance.

We have calmness by surrendering ourselves to Him and allowing Him to keep us calm in tense situations.

Through the Holy Spirit we gain self control (sometimes He keeps us under control, sometimes He reminds us of when we are losing it and depends upon us to make the effort of maintaining self control). Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Immeka (Judges 6:12 The LORD Is with You) for always being with me and helping me live a victorious life through You. I praise You in the name of He who I always try to imitate in every area of my life to bring You glory through my life just as He did, 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

I Feel Uncomfortable

We must remember what the Lord Jesus said, ‘We are more happy when we give than when we receive.’ ” Acts 20:35 The Holy Bible The New Life Version

CHRIST FIRST, OTHERS SECOND

Speaking personally, I feel uncomfortable when folks give me things.

On the flip side, I love to give to those who are needy and worthy. I know it gives glory to Christ and brings great joy to the receivers and sometimes brings them into Jehovahs Holy family.

Then, there is the ripple effect.

I have found it is one in ten. One man or woman out of ten that is helped it effects them to the point where they now have a giving heart as well. It is small for sure but over a lifetime those small ripples add up to tsunamis waves of giving.

The difference is that earths tsunamis bring destruction, tsunamis of love bring great love, joy and relief.

“Remember there’s no such thing as a small act of kindness. Every act creates a ripple with no logical end.” — Scott Adams

Now, I have said it numerous times before and it will be said again.

Giving to those who need is different from those who are leeches.

Giving to those in need is giving to someone who through no fault of their own is experiencing difficulties. These folks appreciate the help while trying to help themselves.

The leeches are the lazy, ungrateful ones that demand more, more, more while giving nothing in return. 

Give, but give wisely. Joseph a son of Jehovah

This brings us to another important aspect of giving.

We are not to randomly give (although there is nothing wrong with that, like helping a handicapped man or woman with their groceries to their vehicle or giving up your seat on the bus) our fiances or time.

We are to take it to Jehovah in prayer. He will send the Holy Spirit to guide us where the resources will be used effectively.

If you want the Masters help you must be willing to obey His direction in your life.  Joseph a son of Jehovah

Using this method has brought me to places I would never have gone and done things I would never have done. But the results were incredible beyond my imagination.

Doing these things adds jewels to your crown which Christ will place upon your head when you are in Heavens home.

Another pay off is when you are in desperate time Jehovah gives pay back seven times more than you gave.

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Ha Melech Psalms 98:6 The LORD the King) for blessing me with the most incredible adventure in life that was beyond the wildest imagination. Thank you that we have accomplished so much in this life You have blessed me with. In You fantastic name I praise You. 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

Will be on Them.

 Those who keep on doing good and are looking for His greatness and honor will receive life that lasts forever. Those who love only themselves and do not obey the truth, but do what is wrong, will be punished by God. His anger will be on them. Every Jew and every person who is not a Jew who sins will suffer and have great sorrow. Romans 2:7-9 The Holy Bible, The New Life Version

BURN LIKE THE SUN

There are those out there that teach that because Jesus is love we can do what ever we desire with no consequences. Because Jesus is loving there can be no Hell. Those that believe this are living in a fools world. I believe we all know there is a Heaven and a Hell but many use this mantra to deceive themselves.

Could it be any more blunt than this passage in the Bible?

Yes, there are always consequences for our actions both here on earth and in eternity. The wise are loving towards others and receive a great reward.

The foolish only love themselves and receive great damnation. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank You my Beloved Jehovah El Gemuwal (Jeremiah 51:56 The LORD GOD of Recompenses) for blessing me with Your amazing graciousness for the service I provide for You. Thank You my Beloved for the numerous opportunities to serve You in the community around me. Thank you my Beloved that You with hold Your blessings from the stingy and selfish. I exalt You in the name of my Beloved big brother with whom I deeply desire to emulate in doing good and sharing, 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

Good That Goes with Bad.

 The Lord also keeps safe those who suffer. He is a safe place in times of trouble. Those who know Your name will put their trust in You. For You, O Lord, have never left alone those who look for You. Psalm 9:9-10 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

There is always good that goes with bad.

Look at the virus that is snaking around the world right now. Yes it is causing a lot of sickness and death. But, it is also contributing to a lot of good.

Look at how many families are spending time together like they did forty years ago.

Look at how folks are looking out for each other in their communities.

Look at how folks are coming together in creative ways in their church to keep together.

Look at how many folks are having time to read their Bibles, for some, maybe the first time in their life.

Look at how many folks are taking walks on nature trails which is good for their mental, physical and spiritual health.

And, most important of all is look at how many folks are spending quality time with Jehovah, perhaps for the first time in their lives.

It is in the difficult times we come the closest to Jesus. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Immeka (Judges 6:12 The LORD Is with You ) for walking with me through these difficult times.                                                                                                                            May you use me to encourage others and help others under Your guidence as You have helped and encouraged me.                                                                                                                                                I apologize that it took at catastrophe like this for me to come and spend time with You.                             I thank you in the name of He who always fulfills His promise to never leave me nor desert me, Jesus Christ. Amen         

    JEHOVAHS CARE                                                                                                                                                                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.

Grandmas Sweater.

 But the king said to Araunah, “No, but I will certainly buy it from you for a price. I will not offer burnt offerings to the Lord my God which cost me nothing.” So David purchased the threshing floor and the oxen for fifty shekels of silver. 2 Samuel 24:24 Holy Bible Amplified Version

David paid for this because He wanted Jehovah to know it was a personal gift unto Him as a present of love, respect and gratefulness.

The best Christmas present I received every year was grandams sweater. It took her many months to knit it and it always felt of her love. Mom would have to fight with me to get it off of me to wash it.

Think of how cherished your gift is to Jehovah when it took a lot of time and effort to make it and freely offer it to Him as an act of love unto Him.

Do you insult Jehovah by giving Him something that cost you nothing or something cheap like you would buy in a Dollar Store?

For a church supper do you go out and buy something cheap at the grocery store instead of taking the time and effort into making a home made meal? This is a gathering of His people to commune with each other and Him. That is a cheap gift. That is an insult to Him.

And when you present the lame and the sick, is it not evil? Offer such a thing [as a blind or lame or sick animal] to your governor [as a gift or as payment for your taxes]. Would he be pleased with you? Or would he receive you graciously?” says the Lord of hosts. Malachi 1:8 Holy Bible Amplified Version

When you give unto Jehovah from your heart that is more precious to Him than the most expensive gift given out of obligation. A gift from the heart is the most precious gift. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh (God is our Provider) for blessing me so generously and with the best. Please always guide me to give nothing less back to You as a gift of love and appreciation every day. I thank You in the name of He who gave His precious blood unto me as the price of adoption unto Your magnificent family Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Your Personal Offering.

LET ME SHOW KINDNESS

 Whatever you do [whatever your task may be], work from the soul [that is, put in your very best effort], as [something done] for the Lord and not for men. Colossians 3:23 Holy Bible Amplified Version

When I was a tree planter we would get paid by the tree. The more trees you planted the more money you made. Therefore, it was in our best interest to plant as many trees as possible. Most of the planters planted sloppy without care for their quality. I, however always took quality before quantity. At some time during the day I would rest under a tree in the nearby forest and survey the ground just planted. The thought came to me that because those trees were planted with superior quality most would survive. Because most would survive they would provide food, shelter, nests for young to be nurtured, take pollution out of the air and give us clean air in return, prevent soil erosion, help retain watersheds which supplied the rivers and streams the fish dwelled in. It always made me smile and think of nature as Gods Cathedral and I just completed a wonderful renovation on it. I got a reputation as having one of the best quality in the country. Whenever someone would ask me why quality was chosen over quantity it would be explained to them about caring for Gods Cathedral and if you are going to do it, do it right.

Children, no matter how much the world pressures you to cut corners to save the company money or get the assignment do quicker, always put your best effort in your work. It will be noticed and it will cause others to question why? That is a golden opportunity to share Christ.

If you are going to do it then  do it as you were doing it for Royalty. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Jehovah-Shammah ( The Lord is Present) I humbly beseech You that You are always with me guiding my hands and mouth that they may excel in whatever You guide me to do so that it may bring honour unto You. I sincerely request this in the name of He who always excelled in His work for Your glory Jesus Christ. Amen

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