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

Heavenly Father

BE STILL

Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done.  Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-7  The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Here is a great prayer to contemplate upon when the rough waters of life come crashing down upon you.

Heavenly Father
I may not understand how everything will work out, but I trust you.
I don’t see a way, but I know you will make a way.
I have faith at this very moment you are touching hearts, opening doors, and lining up the right break and opportunities.
Things look dark and bleak now, but I have faith that my dawn is coming!
In Jesus’ name, Amen! Anonymous

Why not write this down and carry it with you so that it will be with you when the storms of life come thundering upon you.

I do not know where life I am going in life but rather follow the one that is leading me, His name is Jesus. Joseph a son of Jehovah

May you be blessed with abundant joy in your heart filled with love and your life overflowing with laughter every day this year. Joseph a son of Jehovah

What Will Happen To?

LET ME SHOW KINDNESS

 The godly can look forward to a reward, while the wicked can expect only judgment. Give freely and become more wealthy; be stingy and lose everything. The generous will prosper; those who refresh others will themselves be refreshed. If you search for good, you will find favor; but if you search for evil, it will find you! Trust in your money and down you go! But the godly flourish like leaves in spring. Those who bring trouble on their families inherit the wind. The fool will be a servant to the wise. The seeds of good deeds become a tree of life; a wise person wins friends. If the righteous are rewarded here on earth, what will happen to wicked sinners? Proverbs 11:23-31 Holy Bible New Living Translation

One day while volunteering with a Christian organization delivering furniture to the needy we delivered furniture to welfare bums. They were so lazy they refused to even carry the free blankets used to keep them warm. They were ungrateful.

But, you know what else they were?

Very sad and ashamed .

It was because they knew their lifestyle was wrong not because of us. We were respectful and friendly with them. Listening to them talk amongst themselves we hear them constantly brag about themselves while drinking and smoking cigarettes. This is vanity and it comes from a selfish heart.

But the sad thing is that: When you surround yourself with yourself you end up with nobody but yourself. That is a very lonely place to be. Joseph a son of Jehovah

They were living a destructive lifestyle and it was only destroying themselves.

For we must all stand before Christ to be judged. We will each receive whatever we deserve for the good or evil we have done in this earthly body. 2 Corinthians 5:10 Holy Bible New Living Translation

Later we did deliver furniture to low income folks who were very grateful so it more than evened out for being a rewarding day knowing that we helped the truly needy.

And, because we are Christians and those we helped were not, we gave glory to Jesus and by His grace used this as a conduit to guide them to Him. And don’t forget to do good and to share with those in need. These are the sacrifices that please God. Hebrews 13:16 Holy Bible New Living Translation

There is a difference between those in need and those who are too lazy to support themselves. Supporting the later is a waste of the resources Jehovah has given you to help those who are truly in need. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Ghmolah (The God of Recompense) for the assurance that the wicked will receive their just rewards, if not here while on earth then definitely in eternity in Hell. Please bless them with wisdom to see the errors of their ways and to repent of them. I praise You and humbly request this in the name of the Supreme Judge 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

Prayers for Caregivers-A Prayer to Speak With

loving to each other

A Prayer to Speak with Love and Respect

Jesus looked at them intently and said, “Humanly speaking, it is impossible. But not with God. Everything is possible with God.” Mark 10:27 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

My Love please bless me with the ability to communicate with those You have placed in my care in a manner in which they will understand what I am saying.

Please bless me with the ability to understand what they are trying to communicate with me.

Please my Beloved bless me that You will guide my words this day to bring encouragement and love.

Please strengthen me to bide my tongue to not lash out with hurtful words when disputes erupt. When the fires start to flare when they are being stubborn and obstinate, please bless me to close my eyes and to call out unto You to bring peace into the conversation.

And with the wisdom to know when to walk away because of the futility in the conversation.

Bless me with the ability to come back later and speak with respectful authority to which they must succumb to.

Please bless us to be loving and respectful towards each other as You and I are loving and respectful towards each other.

I humbly request this in the name of He whose speech was always respectful and loving Jesus Christ. Amen

Prayers for Caregivers-A Prayer for Patience

GODS HELP

 May God, who gives this patience and encouragement, help you live in complete harmony with each other, as is fitting for followers of Christ Jesus. Romans 15:5 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

My Beloved, I humbly beseech You to bless me this day with abundance of patience. This days calling upon my body, mind and spirit are great.

Patience is a virtue which only You can pour out upon me as rain is pour out upon the parched land. No matter the difficult task nor the wearing of my patience by those in my care please bless me with Your Divine patience.

The load placed upon the caregivers shoulder is heavy and demanding. It can only be accomplished by Your Divine patience.

I believe You will bless me all that is required to excel at these demanding tasks this day, but especially with patience.

May I be as patient with those in my care this day as You are with me every day.

I humbly beseech You and thank You for granting my petition in the name of He who excelled in patience with His disciples Jesus Christ. Amen

To His Steps.

FOLLOWING CHTISTS EXAMPLE

A simple man believes anything, but a prudent man gives thought to his steps. A wise man fears the LORD and shuns evil, but a fool is hotheaded and reckless Proverbs 14:15-16, New International Version

Do you fall for the bait?

How many times do you see advertisements that promise a new younger you, a promise that if you follow this formula for a “special price” it will guarantee a new you, a more beautiful you, a richer you, a happier you?

How many times do you fall for the bait and part with hard earned cash only to find yourself ripped off?

Do you recklessly spend money on the newest fad in the foolish believe that you “have to have it” only to have it thrown in the closet a few weeks later? Come on now, how many of you older people were actually stupid enough to buy the “pet rock” in the sixties and seventies? Where is your pet now?

“These were people so hungry for love that they were accepting substitutes. There were embracing material things and expecting a sort of hug back. But it never works. You can’t substitute material things for love or for gentleness or for tenderness or for a sense of comradeship. Money is no substitute for tenderness, and power is not a substitute for tenderness. I can tell you as I’m sitting here dying, when you most need it, neither money nor power will give you the feeling you’re looking for, no matter how much of them you have.” Morrie (from Tuesdays with Morrie)

I believe in following a wise Jewish tradition that if you follow will prevent a lot of grief in your life. Before you buy anything or sign any contract always wait and pray for three days. Depend upon and obey Gods decision. It may not be what you want to heard or want to do, but isn’t it prudent to depend upon Gods infinite wisdom than our faulty wisdom? I have seen many people fall for the sign it now or it will be gone tomorrow sucker trap. Later they deeply regret it.

What the word “fear means is respect. Shouldn’t we respect Gods guidance instead of a snake oil salesman?

Restlessness and impatience change nothing except our peace and joy. Peace does not dwell in outward things, but in the heart prepared to wait trustfully and quietly on Him who has all things safely in His hands. Elisabeth Elliot

Prayer: Please Jehovah-Hoshe’ah The Lord Saves ) Psalm 20:9 bless me with Your salvation when circumstances tempt me to lose my temper or to surrender to satans temptation to do foolish things. I earnestly request this in the name of He who conquered all temptations Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with abundant joy in your heart filled with love and your life overflowing with laughter every day this year. Joseph a son of Jehovah
