Focus to See the Light.

weary

 Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me [following Me as My disciple], for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest (renewal, blessed quiet) for your souls. Matthew 11:29 Holy Bible Amplified Version

We all suffer from trials and tribulations, sorrows and snares.

The difference between the ones walking in darkness and those of us that are walking in the light is that we have a Father in Heaven that loves us, cares for us and about us.

We have a choice. We can carry the world on our shoulders, or we can say, “I give up, Lord; here’s my life. I give you my world, the whole world.” –Bruce Larson

They have no one that has the perfect healing touch. Jesus loves you.

Jesus cares. Jesus is always there. Joseph- Anthony: Green

When we suffer the loss of a loved one we can always take our pain and sadness to Jesus. Do not forget how he weeped at His friends grave.

When we have lost our homes do not forget that Jesus was homeless.

When we are sick do not forget the sick Jesus healed.

When we have been betrayed do not forget how one of His own disciples betrayed Him. When our family and or friends reject us because of our walk towards our heavenly home do not forget how Jesus’ own family rejected and bitterly mocked Him.

When we suffer from exhaustion do not forget how exhausted Jesus was from his preaching and healing.

When we are facing death from a slow disease killer do not forget how Jesus knew about the type of death He must suffer.

Because Jesus walked amongst us He has experienced everything we have and so much more.

Be assured, if you walk with Him and look to Him and expect help from Him, He will never fail you. —George Müller

So when we are experiencing our difficulties remember to focus on He who is the light of the world. He will comfort you, heal you, encourage you and walk with you through it all because He loves you.

It is during our darkest moments that we must focus to see the light. –Anonymous

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-‘Ori (the Lord is my Light) for lighting my world with Your Divine love, assurance, comfort and strength in my darkest moments. I praise You for this blessing in the name of the light of the world Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

To Find True Rest.

HE GIVES ABUNDANTLY

Yes, my soul, find rest in God; my hope comes from him. Psalm 62:5 Holy Bible, New International Version

Where do you go to find rest in this face paced shallow world.

To find true rest from anxieties of finances I go to Jehovah and He guides me to the comforting and best financial advice there is in the Bible (number one is to never go in debt. Save for it and be patient).

When the stress of relationships weighs me down like a rock around my ankles and thrown into the sea I go to Jehovah and He guides me to verses in the Bible on how to handle difficult relationships (many times the advice is difficult to follow but will lead to a lot less stress, fights and bitterness in life. I know His advice has improved my relationship peace tremendously by teaching me how to avoid or handle the ones who suck the life out of you).

When I encounter health problems I go to Jehovah and He guides me to Bible verses that teach me proper diet and exercise (both mentally and physically). I know when it is time for me to depart from this world I will go to Jehovah and He will guide me to Bible verses that comfort and reassure me He is waiting to guide me home upon my departure from this world.

Where do I go to find Divine rest while enjoying heavenly communion with my Beloved Father?

Why, in Gods Cathedral of course.

And where is this amazing Cathedral?

Any place in nature.

My preferred places are in an isolated beach, my a quiet gentle little rapids or in a forest or laying under the summer stars.

It is when I am in the beauty of His creation that the weight of the world disintegrates to be replaced with Gods amazing peace and love. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Heseh (God is love) for the amazing privilege of communing with You in Your awesome creation. Thank You my love for the comfort, strength, wisdom, healing, peace and encouragement that You bless me with when I pour out my aching heart into Thy loving arms. I deeply thank you my Love in the name of my Heavenly Healer Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

He Hears You.

O You who hear prayer. Psalm 65:2 New King James Version

When you pray you are not praying to a dead idol made of wood or metal or some make believe fellow like Santa Claus or to dead souls, like the saints. That is foolishness.

Instead with reverence, love and sincerity pray to the living God whose throne is in Heaven.

He hears your cry when suffering sorrow. He blesses you with answers that give reassurance and healing.

He hears your cry when you need help. He answers with protection and resources to conquer your adversary.

He hears your cry when you are alone and feel dejected. He blesses you with filling you with His Divine love, comfort and encouragement. He hears your cry when you need guidance in your life. He blesses you with resources and guidance councilors to show you the path you must take.

He hears your cry when you are remorseful He not only forgives you but guides you in the proper manner to reconcile with the one you have done wrong. This blesses you with peace in your spirit.

He hears your cry when you need to learn something. He blesses you with wise teachers and mentors that reveal the knowledge you need.    And of course it is with pure delight he hears your song of praise for His love. To Him that is the sweetest song that ever exists. Of course when we are in a loving relationship we delight in sharing with the one we love how much we love them.

He cherishes your prayer of thank you when He blesses you. That is the respectful thing to do is it not? When you help someone does it not feel good when they thank you? How much more than should we thank our Beloved Father in Heaven when He blesses us?

GOD LOVES YOU

You do not need to make an appointment and he is never too busy. Jehovah is always there, Jehovah always cares. Joseph- Anthony: Green

When you continuously continue in a weakness (like being short tempered) He does not become exasperated with you and give up on you. When you honesty are repentant and humbly ask for forgiveness He will forgive you and thousand times a thousand.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Heseh (God is love) for being such a loving Father to this cherished child of Yours. Thank you for Your blessings of Your Hoy love, strength, wisdom, comfort and encouragement as Your never end provisions. I praise You in the name of Your most special blessing Your Holy Son Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sweet sunshine of Jesus’ beautiful love bless you today and every day.

How to Beat the Sneak.

Now when the devil had ended every temptation, he departed from Him until an opportune time. Luke 4:1 New King James Version

Satan is sneaky.

He does not charge into your mind, he is subtle and begins with just little thoughts. Then they become cemented into your mind and grow like cancer. Eventually they will consume you and you commit a sin.

To effectively defeat this creep use the best and only weapon available to you to soundly defeat him very time.

Carry a Bible verse with you constantly and when the scumbag comes just pull out that verse and with power and authority shove it tight down his throat. Then for the finale inform him that you belong to Jesus so just take a hike. Say it with conviction.

Thoughts become habits so surround yourself with Godly thoughts.

To accomplish this listen to sermons on sermonaudio.com (I like to listen to Allister Begg, A.W. Tozer and Spurgeon.) every day, read Christian devotionals like http://www.actsweb.org and Our Daily Bread listen to Christian radio like http://www.joyfmonline.org and http://www.praise1065.com.

THE LORD WILL ANSWER

Pray to Jesus to reveal to you your bad habits and the method of defeating them.

Sometimes they are too strong for you and can only be defeated by completely surrendering them to Jesus.

As well think of the things that are triggers and avoid them like the plague. So if you are an alcoholic you need to avoid your drinking buddies and do not even walk down the streets with the bars you used to hang out at.

That is what happened to me with my addiction to alcohol. It was too strong for me and the only way to defeat it was through completely surrendering it to Christ. It was defeated that instant.   That does not mean that satan does not still try his sneaky little tricks but I have the protection of the Holy Spirit to resist him.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Yeshua (God our protector) for the most powerful protection against the most devious liar and thief Lucifer. Your most awesome protection of this child that belongs to You has rescued me from the Highway to Hell and leads me on the difficult Pathway to Heaven. I in deep gratitude extol You in the name of my strong King who defeated our nemesis once and for all on the cross Jesus Christ . Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

Given Me Life.

 

REST IN THE LORD

This is my comfort in my affliction, For Your word has given me life. Psalms 119:50 New King James Version

                                                                                                          

Remember that phrase from a popular movie :”Where ya gonna go?”  

                                                               

Well, where do you go when your heart is pierced like a knife?                                                                     

The only logical answer is the Bible.                                                                                                                     

The Christian has peace because he knows he is loved and cared for the by the Holy Spirit through Jesus Christs sacrifice by the grace of Jehovah . Joseph- Anthony: Green

Read of those whose hearts where pierced by sadness and grief and see how Jehovah gently healed them.                                                                                                                                                                                   

Do you have no job and your money is running out? Turn to your Bible and read about those that suffered the same fate and see how Jehovah delivered them. Now do not expect something like the widow and the oil like with Elijah but take comfort and have reassurance that Jehovah will deliver you.                                                                                                                                                                             

Are you suffering from some incurable disease and are slowly ebbing into your final days and are afraid of what death is like? Read your Bible and see how many of the patriarchs faced their final days.                                                                                                                                                                     

Are you facing a death in your family, read your Bible and take comfort and strength in how they handled the situation?                                                                                                                                           

Any and all tragic events in our life has been recorded in the Bible  in the lives of others to comfort and strengthen us.  Pray for Jehovah to guide you to the proper place in the Bible and to open your hearts and minds to what is occurring and how it relates to your present circumstance.

                                                                 

I do not need psychiatrists; I need the Bible to solve my problems. Joseph- Anthony: Green

And, if you read your Bible you will see that Jesus has experienced everything we have and so much more. So of course when we come to Him He understands. He has been there, done that.

 

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-‘Uzam  (The Lord is our Strength in Trouble) for blessing me with Your awesome strength that has carried me through so many trials and tribulations, sorrows and snares. Thank you for Your Devine Book of wisdom to encourage and strengthen us, the Holy Bible through the valleys in our lives. I exalt You in the name of He who taught this to any and all who were willing to listen and obey Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

This is the Only Way.

HOLY SPIRIT ENCOURAGER

The Lord is compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, abounding in love. Psalms 103:8 New International Version

Think of earthly families okay.

Whether you like to admit it or not, we do inherit undesirable traits from our parents like alcoholism, short temperedness, and of course stubbornness.

Now, the more we submit to Christ, the more we become like Christ.

This is how someone who was cold hearted becomes compassionate, more patient and loving.

This is the only way to conquer our undesirable personality trait.

I used to be very spiteful and hold a grudge for a long time.

Now, when someone wrongs me, I sincerely take it to Jesus and leave it there.

As a consequence my life is filled with more peace and joy.

Only Christ can conquer our undesirable traits.

Then why does He give them to us in the first place you may ask?

It is because we see it is only by His grace and love that these undesirables are conquered and that leads us to exuberant joyful praise to Him. And of course this oozes out of our daily life.

This is, by the way, why it is my personal opinion, psychiatry miserably fails miserably. Their limited reasoning and dope pushing (prescribing drugs like candy) does not and cannot solve the problem.

IMPORATANT There are cases where drugs are necessary like if you have schizophrenia or some other serious mental disability you will have to take medication for the rest of your life. I have seen too many who thought they were better and stopped taking their medication that led to disastrous results.  I see those who stay on their medication lead productive lives and when participating in Christian Bible studies become very calm, joyful and peaceful

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Ropeka (God our healer)  for freeing me from the destructive chains of __________ (name any addictions or destructive behavior traits you had that Jehovah has freed you from). I thank you in the name of He whose power cast out the demons in so many when he walked amongst us Jesus Christ. Amen.

 

.   Editors note: it was only when I admitted to Jehovah that the demons of alcoholism were to strong for me to conquer and please rescue me that those horrible chains were smashed and it has been many years since I have touched a drink

Prayer: Please Jehovah Ropeka (God our healer)  release me from the prison of ________ (write down your any destructive addictions or behavior traits you need to be freed from). I in deepest need request this in the name of He who has promised to set all the prisoners free Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

Does That Answer Your Question?

THE THREE PARTS OF PRAYER

 

These articles are dedicated to the wonderful and amazing way Jehovah Jireh (the Lord our provider) answers prayers. It is a simple journal that I would like to use as an example for others to list their sincere prayer requests and then how our Beloved answers them.                                                                                                                                       

It will amaze you and create a heart of gratitude and respect for our gracious Jehovah Heseh (Our God of love).

Pure and undefiled religion before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows James 1:27 New King James Version

It has been three weeks since I did volunteer work at a seniors home because of a flu outbreak.

I prayed to Jehovah to bless me with an answer if they wanted me to return.

That day as mom and I were doing errands she picked up a bundle of community newspapers and took them to the seniors home. I did not know she intended to do this.

As we were delivering the papers I encountered many of the residents and the staff I volunteer with. They were all very happy to see me and the staff informed me that the flu epidemic was over and they want me to return this week.

When I got home there was a feeling like Jehovah saying:” Does that answer your question?”

I laughed and thanked Him for His wonderful way of answering my prayer.

Now I have returned to volunteering at the seniors home and we are all very glad things have gotten back to “normal”.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Ropheka (God our Healer) for healing those sick in the seniors home and thank you that I can at long last return to serving you there to bring glory to Your marvelous name. I exalt you in the name of He who healed Peters sick mother Jesus Christ. Amen.
