How do You Take Care Of ?

GENTLE STREAM WINDING THROUGH FOREST

Those members of the body which seem to be weaker are necessary. —1 Corinthians 12:22 New Living Translation.

Now if we are a family of Christ as Jehovah as our Father then there are big brothers and sisters and little brothers and sisters. The big brothers and sisters are the ones that have a deep understanding and experience with God. Their walk with God is strong. The babies are the new members of our family or the ones through no fault of their own are weak.

The big brothers and sisters should not be critical or haughty of the babies. They should nurture them, encourage them and be respectful towards them.   

The more mature Christian is to be loving, patient, encouraging, and mentoring to those who are not as far along the walk to Heaven as themselves. Joseph a son of Jehovah

The babies should listen to and obey their big brothers and sisters. When they speak to them with love about areas in their life that needs to be corrected they should not be insulted or hurt by the actions.

If we all behaved like this in the churches the churches would not decrease. Many churches are losing members because of the mean spiritedness of other members. Those hypocritical members are judgmental and condescending to the babies in the family. The babies are hurt and give the middle finger to the church and walk away. Indeed how many new members of the family walk away from Jesus because of this? I tell you true, their blood will be on the guiltiest hands (yes blood. Because they walk away from Jesus because of you, you are the reason they are going to hell.).

How do you think that makes Jesus feel?

Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers. Galatians 6:10 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Heseh (God is love) for lovingly blessing me with the Holy Spirit to teach me and help me to be the child You desire me to be. Please bless me to emulate Him to come along side those who are not as mature in their walk with You as I am (that does not mean childish but rather inexperienced) and to lovingly guide them to a deeper loving, obedient relationship with You. Thank you for the big brothers and sisters whom You have sent to mentor me and may I emulate them as well. I sincerely request this in the name of the greatest Teacher Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Me First Puts You Last.

SATANS TRAP

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

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

Are You Ready For ?

LOVING TO EACH OTHER

Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love.” Ephesians 4:2 New International Version

 How do you behave towards others?

How do you treat your neighbors, friends, family, classmates, co-workers, and people on the bus or anywhere we travel throughout our day?

When we conduct ourselves in a humble, gentle manner our lives will be much less stressful and we find ourselves a lot more happier.

Let’s dissect each of these words and then perhaps and then you may see how to incorporate them into your daily living.

Humble: not proud or haughty : not arrogant or assertive

Do you walk around with a chip on your shoulder?

Do you look down on people who are poorer than you, come from a different country and culture?

Do you believe you are better than anyone else?

Are you ready for what comes around?

Gentle: free from harshness, sternness, or violence

Do you speak cruel spiteful words to others to get your jollies watching them in their hurt feelings?

Be careful, if this behavior leads to some else to commit suicide in Gods eyes you are just as guilty of murder as if you put a bullet in their head.

Are you too stern with your wives, husbands, children or subordinates?

Are you a bully?

Read about those who speak cruel words, the same applies to you.

Patient: bearing pains or trials calmly or without complaint, not hasty or impetuous ,steadfast despite opposition, difficulty, or adversity

Do you have patience waiting in the grocery line, or when dealing with anothers short comings or difficulty in understanding?

 

Do you stand beside a family member, friend, classmate or co-worker when dealing with difficult situations? Do you bear with another when they unintentionally do or say annoying things?

All of the above definitions come from Webster’s dictionary. The comments are my own.

Why not make a list of how you can improve yourselves with this helpful little guide. Then start working on improving yourselves one at a time.

As an added bonus you will find yourselves much less stressed and happier.

Oh and as another added bonus remember this: What goes around comes around. So how you behave towards others will be done back to you.

How do you want people to treat you?

“Welcome with open arms fellow believers who don’t see things the way you do. And don’t jump all over them every time they do or say something you don’t agree with—even when it seems that they are strong on opinions but weak in the faith department. Remember, they have their own history to deal with. Treat them gently” (Romans 14:1 The Message Bible).

In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.” Matthew 5:16 The Holy Bible, The Living Translation

Be ye all of one mind, having compassion one of another, love as brethren, be pitiful, be courteous: not rendering evil for evil, or railing for railing: but contrariwise blessing.” 1 Peter 3:8,9 The Holy Bible, The King James Version

“Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up” (James 4:10 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation).

We must learn to live together as brothers or perish together as fools. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Prayer: Jehovah Hosanna ( God our maker) make my every heart beat with a deep longing desire to always walk righteously in Your divine eyes and be open to expanding my ability to become more Christ like every day. In the name of our loving King Jesus Christ we pray. Amen.

May Gods sunshine always bless you with brightening your day with His love, joy and peace. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Do You Give Honey or Do You Shoot Arrows?

 

WORDS HEAL IN LOVE A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger. Proverbs 15:1, New International Version

Please, always remember this verse. Write it down and keep it with you.

Do you speak words of encouragement when others are enduring difficult times? Or, do you pour hot burning colas of pain on others?

Which words do you use?

Do you comfort them and encourage them or do you criticize them and mock them?

Do you always try to say something positive to people or do you take every opportunity to cruelly mock them?

Remember this as well:” What goes around comes around.”

How you behave with others will be done back to you at sometime.

I personally prefer to uplift and encourage others. In doing so I am following in the footsteps of my beloved Jesus.

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

Prayer: Please oh Jehovah Shalom (God of our peace) guide my words that they may be healing and soothing to all I encounter today. In the name of the sweetest orator Jesus Christ we pray. Amen.

May your house be filled with joy in the morning and sweet dreams at night. May it be a home where love has come to live. Joseph a son of Jehovah

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

You Cannot Legislate Folks To.

 What is causing the quarrels and fights among you? Don’t they come from the evil desires at war within you?You want what you don’t have, so you scheme and kill to get it. You are jealous of what others have, but you can’t get it, so you fight and wage war to take it away from them. Yet you don’t have what you want because you don’t ask God for it. And even when you ask, you don’t get it because your motives are all wrong—you want only what will give you pleasure. James 4:1-3 Holy Bible New Living Translation

DARKNESS

Today everybody screams that if you do not think and believe like I do, you are a sexist, racist, or homophobic. Well, this is the way of the liberals who are very intolerant of others all the while living a life worse than those they are condemning. From my experience, liberals are hateful, closed minded and dictatorial.

Just look at the recent event in the United States where peaceful mostly white Catholic school students (Covington High School) were visiting a cultural memorial and they were viciously attacked by those who appeared to me to be black hate mongers. Then the native came along (please do not tell me he just happened to be walking down the street with a drum in his hands, it appeared to me to be all set up) and started banging his drum. Did he not lie to the leftist media and say he felt threatened by a student who just stood there smiling while the native was banging a drum in his face? The leftist media took off with is as well as numerous other lefties and condemned the student who where the victims.

I personally find it easy to discuss opposing point of views with conservatives. Most (not all) are respectful of opposing views as long as they are not shoved down their throats.

Some of the liberal ideals are good as are some of the ideas of the conservatives. Why do we not just sit down and listen to each other, then have a referendum of the people. Which ever way the people decide is the way the society will go. That is true democracy. You cannot legislate folks to believe in what you believe and cannot force them to live the life you think is right. Now we do have standardized laws like being against the law to commit murder but there are also international laws that state that as long as I am not hurting anyone else I can, will and do live the life I choose (which by the way, is by living in accordance with the Holy Spirits guidance).

The governments of today and the media are pulling folks apart rather than being strong morally and uniting them together. Yes, both liberal and conservative are equally to blame. I believe they do it to gain power and prestige for themselves rather than being honourable and serving those with in their community.

LET CHRIST'S LOVE SHINE

Christians are to be different. We are to guide others to Christs ever lasting government by our actions and then by teaching them His standard of behaviour that is acceptable in His Eternal government.

The more policies the government enacts that force people to behave a certain way, the less of a community we become. We may see the issue we pushed for go away, but we may also see people more cautious of each other, people less likely to ask for or offer help, less effective teamwork and innovation. The less they are comfortable with others and become more isolationist. This is a recipe for disaster. Anonymous

Prayer: Please Jehovah Tsidkenu (The Lord is Righteousness) bless me that my life is governed by Your righteousness rather than the hatred of the world. Please bless me to be ab ambassador of peace and helpfulness rather than a devil of division and war. In short please bless me to walk like my hero Jesus did in this wicked world so as to guide the hurting to Your loving arms. I humbly request this in the name of my mentor Jesus Christ. Amen

Christ blesses us with love, peace and joy. May you be blesses with many opportunities to share these with others today.
