There are little eyes upon you , and they’re watching night and day. There are little ears that quickly take in everything you say.
There are little hands all eager to do everything you do. And a little boy who is dreaming of the day he will be like you. You are the little fellows idol , you are the wisest of the wise; In his little mind about you no suspicions ever rise; He believes in you devotedly , holds that all you say and do He will say and do in your way when he’s grown up just like you. There’s a wide eyed little fellow who believes you’re always right And his ears are always open, and he watches day and night. You are setting an example every day in all you do. For the little boy who’s waiting to grow up to be like you.

The Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore. Psalm 121: 8 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation
When I was a wee little boy there was a show in which the woman would hold up a mirror and claim to be able to see us. Sometimes I would cry out the she sees me in my underwear. It is funny to think of how naive I was back then.
But now, I know Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit really do see me.
That is good because when temptation comes I know they are watching and that is enough for me to run from it.
It is also good to know they see my pain and struggles. They come and comfort me and encourage me. They see me victories and come and share in the joy with me.
They also see when I am beginning to go astray and warn me of its dangers.
I do not fear Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit are constantly watching me, I rejoice in it. Joseph a son of Jehovah Joseph a son of Jehovah
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El Roi. You are the God who sees ( Proverbs 15:3 ) for blessing me with Your ever present eye upon this child You love and adore so much. May my ear always be attentive to You wise, loving, caring voice every moment of every day. I exalt You in the name of my loving best friend, Jesus Christ who watches over me as well. Amen
May be be blessed with comfort and assurance that our loving Poppa is watching you this day. Joseph a son of Jehovah
Hate what is sinful. Romans 12:9 The Holy Bible, The New Life Version
Do you notice that when you see something sinful you get disgusted and angry, like homosexuals kissing on TV?
When you are a Christian that is good.
That means you heart is aligned with Jehovahs. Make, no mistake about it, He hates wickedness.
That does not mean we are to have vendettas against the wicked.
We should lovingly bring them into the Truth.
If they reject it, they are rejecting Christ, not you. That should bring great agony to our hearts because in rejecting Christ, they are condemning themselves to Hell.
Liberalism says if it feels good do it. Christ says obey my commands or you will destroy yourself, you chose. I will send you the Holy Spirit and He will teach you right from wrong. Reject Him to your own peril.
Christ does not condemn anyone, their own actions do. Joseph a son of Jehovah
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Ori (Psalms 27:1 The LORD My Light) for lighting the way to live a decent healthy lifestyle and to detest the filth that is committed by those that relish walking in the dung of sin and arrogantly participating in it for all to see. Please guide my heart not to hate them but to pray that they see and accept the Light into their lives before the damn themselves to eternal Hell. I sincerely request this in the name of He who is the light of the world Jesus Christ. Amen
May you be blessed with peace and joy every day.Joseph a son of Jehovah

For I bear on my body the scars that show I belong to Jesus. Galatians 6:17 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation
The older we get, the more scars we have. There are different types of scars.
There is of course the physical ones, the mental ones and the spiritual ones.
The difference is that those that dwell in the world have no use for their scars.
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
We that belong to Christ use these scars to encourage those in His family. When we see another brother or sister suffering we come along side them and share our scars with them and how Jesus used these scars to help mature us and how His gentle love healed these scars.
A Christians scars are used for encouragement for others in Jehovahs family. Joseph a son of Jehovah
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ELOHIM YAKOL (God, the Most Able 2 Corinthians 9:8) for blessing me with challenging times so as to enable me to use these experiences to encourage, teach and comfort others when they go through life’s troubles. I praise You in the name of He who suffered the most for me Jesus Christ. Amen
May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love fill your heart today and every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Oh my Beloved El Emunah (Deuteronomy 7:9 The Faithful GOD ), I need You in my life today and every day.
Please bless me with Your gentle healing touch when others inflict me with cruel words or actions today.
Please bless me to be forgiving as You are forgiving unto me.
Please bless me with Your forgiveness when I am cruel in my words and actions today and guide me to repent to those I have offended either intentionally or unintentionally.
Please constantly remind me to depend upon Your guidance instead of foolishly depending upon my own or others flawed intelligence.
Thank you for Your healing balm upon my wounded heart as You are the best doctor there is.
Thank you that there is always a purpose in the wounds and aches and pains that come my way. They are for teaching me, maturing me or correcting me when I am going astray. You allow these because You love me too much to leave me as I am and desire for me to be the child of Yours You know I can be. It is because of these my Lord that my love for You grows ever deeper every day and we grow ever closer every day.
Thank you for that, the best blessing You can give me above all other blessings.
I humbly say this prayer in the name of my best friend Jesus Christ. Amen

And don’t let us yield to temptation, but rescue us from the evil one. Matthew 6:13 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation
My Beloved Father,this world is changing ever faster every day. It seems as if everywhere I turn whether it is on the computer, TV or radio all’s that is on is evil and filth. Many times it raises anger in my heart at seeing society going down the road to Hell and determined to take as many as they can with them. However, I know You are in control and have complete trust in You. Please protect my loved ones and myself from the devils evil schemes with these tools of destruction he uses so craftily. Please send angles to protect my loved ones and myself from satans minions. Please send the Holy Spirit to guide me them and myself away from the devils temptation and towards Your loving, safe protective arms. Thank you that in our weak moments when we turn to You, You rescue us from temptation . I humbly request this in Jesus Christs mighty name. Amen
May the light of Christs love shine brightly in your heart today and every dayJoseph a son of Jehovah
What causes fights and quarrels among you? Don’t they come from your desires that battle within you? You desire but do not have, so you kill. You covet but you cannot get what you want, so you quarrel and fight. You do not have because you do not ask God. When you ask, you do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, that you may spend what you get on your pleasures. You adulterous people, don’t you know that friendship with the world means enmity against God? Therefore, anyone who chooses to be a friend of the world becomes an enemy of God. Or do you think Scripture says without reason that he jealously longs for the spirit he has caused to dwell in us? But he gives us more grace. That is why Scripture says: “God opposes the proud but shows favor to the humble.” Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Come near to God and he will come near to you. Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded. Grieve, mourn and wail. Change your laughter to mourning and your joy to gloom. Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up James 4:1-10 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation.
Is it not true, this is what causes so many fights today, the feeling that you are the center of the universe? Because of this, you feel no qualms about stepping all over everybody else because you think you are better than anyone else. You refuse to see anyone else’s point of view. You are rude because again, you think you are the center of the universe. Maybe you are to momma and or granma, but not to the rest of us. Grow up and be a man or woman. Learn to respect others.
How about your relationship with God?
In your communion with Him do you have the gimme, gimme attitude?
Are your prayers centered around yourself? Then you cry baby because God does not give you everything you demand.
So many times I have encountered people who say they don’t believe in God (I say they say they don’t believe in God because I believe we all deep down we all know He exists. Many just refuse to accept Him because He will not give them their every desire like spoiled children and because they are haughty and refuse to submit to anyone). When I ask them why, they reply that it is because He has not answered their prayers. When asked what their prayers are they are always self centered.
Of course God will not answer those prayers (Now there is nothing wrong with asking for Gods help or guidance. That is what He wants us to do.).
My prayer is: Not my will but Thy will be done my God. Show me where You want me to go, teach me what You want me to do. May my words and actions bring glory and praise to You and may they lead the lost little sheep to You.Joseph a son of Jehovah
Now what is friendship with the world?
I believe it is self seeking pleasures, whether it be booze, drugs, sex or commercialism. Again, it’s all about you.
That is the life of a loser. Their life is left with a void that they do not understand why. The reason is because they do not have the heart of a servant of the most regal of kings, Jesus Christ.
The happiest people I have ever met are also the humblest.Joseph a son of Jehovah
Humble: not proud or haughty: not arrogant or assertive Webster’s Dictionary
I love being humble and yes most days I am very joyful (Happiness depends upon physical stimulation, joyfulness depends upon Jehovahs love beating in your heart).
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El SIMCHAH GIYL (God my Exceeding Joy) for blessing me with exceeding joy as I nurture our loving relationship which is the most joyful experience there is. I applaud You in the name of He who brings the light of joy to my heart 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
When I live in the high and holy place with those whose spirits are contrite and humble. I restore the crushed spirit of the humble and revive the courage of those with repentant hearts. Isaiah 57:15 Holy Bible, New Living Translation
A contrite heart means one whose heart breaks when they sin.
Now do you notice that Jehovah lives in a high and holy place?
That can only mean Heaven.
Do you notice that those with a contrite heart live there with Him?
When we are naughty and then repent (which means we admit what we did, admit it was wrong, apologize for it, ask for forgiveness and make restitution where possible) then Jehovah takes our spirits up to Heaven to be with Him, if only for the moment of when we repent. I believe this is a sign from our loving Heavenly Father that our sins are truly forgiven.
The Holy Spirit instills in us all that which is right and that which is wrong. We receive the proper rewards for the decisions we make. Joseph a son of Jehovah.
See how He says He will revive those of a repentant heart.
I know from my experience I felt crushed with remorse, weak and feeble. After repentance my heart felt as if a heavy burden had been lifted from it and danced with joy and gratitude for the forgiveness that was blessed upon me by my Heavenly Father (even when those that we offended were not so generous nor forgiving).
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Elohay Selichot (God Of Forgiveness) for blessing me with Your gracious forgiveness. Please bless my heart to be as forgiving unto the repentant as You are towards me when I repent. I sincerely give thanks and request this in the name of He whose blood made it all possible Jesus Christ. Amen
May Gods sunshine always bless you with brightening your day with His love, joy and peace. Joseph a son of Jehovah
“An anxious heart weighs a man down, but a kind word cheers him up. “ Proverbs 12:25 Holy Bible Amplified Version
Anxiousness is described as feeling or showing uncomfortable feelings of uncertainty .
We have all encountered those around us that are suffering. How many have reached out and touched them with healing kindness ?
How can we help them ?
The best thing to do is to show you care by listening to their problems ( Jehovah takes the time to listen to our problems should we not emulate Him by doing the same for those that are suffering around us ? ) .
We are not just talking about the homeless .
We are talking about those that are suffering a disease . Yes , for many , going into a hospital is an uncomfortable experience but how comfortable do you think it is for them. Why not go in and reminisce with them about the good ol days . Why not go in with some photo’s of happy times . Speaking from experience you will be amazed at the amount of good you accomplish.
We are talking about those who are having difficulty in their studies or at work. Those of us who are older can relate and provide encouraging words to strengthen , guide them and encourage them. What about those that are experiencing relationship problems like with marriage or children? Again , those of us who are older have walked that walk and can provide positive affirmation to them by our experiences which will guide them , strengthen them and reassure them .
There are so many other opportunities available unto you Christian. All you have to do is be available , pray and be obedient unto Jehovahs guidance where your help is needed.
Prayer: Please Jehovah-Machsi – Lord my Refuge bless me with the opportunity to be a refuge unto those enduring trials and tribulations , sorrows and snares just as You are for me. Bless me with Your divine wisdom , grace , meekness and humbleness to help them as You have aboundingly done for me . I humbly request this in the name of He who was a refuge to the poor , the sick and the weak when He walked amongst us Jesus Christ. Amen.
May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day.
