My Wild Turkey Prayer.

SEVEN WILD TURKEYS CROP COPYWRITE

WILD DEER IN MIST copywrite

But certainly God has heard me; He has attended to the voice of my prayer. Psalm 66:19 New King James Version                                         

I have been praying to my Beloved for over a year to bless me with the opportunity to photograph some wild deer and wild turkeys.                                               

Recently I suffered from an episode of burn out.                                    

 Every day for the past five months I had been involved in strenuous work to improve my aged disabled moms (I am her primary care giver)place.

As well, there was three days a week performing volunteer work which involved continuously moving for three hours each session.                                                                                         

One day I hit the wall.                                                                                     

 I bicycled out to Gods Cathedral (nature) dropped to my knees and cried like a baby while shaking like a leaf in a wind storm.                                

 I cried out to my Beloved to explain what was happening as I did not understand.                                                                                                    

His reply came in two words:” Go camping.”                                                     

 I replied: “My Lord, I just suffered a melt down and You want me to go out camping?”                                                                                                         

Then He explained that I was suffering burn out because I had violated His Law. Six days we shall work and then rest on the seventh. Because I did not do this both my mind and body were exhausted.                           

You can choose to commit the sin, you cannot choose the punishment. Joseph- Anthony: Green                                                                                       

I needed rest and where better to get rest than Gods Cathedral (nature)? So I informed mom I was going camping for three days (mom needs care but it is time for the rest of the family to step forward and help out for once).                                                                            

 Jehovah guided me to a nice place on the side of a forested hill.                            

The next morning while saying prayer the Lord interrupted and told me to go say the prayers on the edge of the forest by the farmers field. I thought this a good idea as it is better to say my prayers in Gods Cathedral (nature) than the inside of a tent. While saying the prayers I noticed a flash of white and took no notice as I thought it was a grouse. As I was continuing to say the prayers the Lord urged me to look to my right. There was a white tailed deer that almost walked into me. I quickly took a photo even thought it was foggy out.                                

 The last day out as I was leaving the Lord urged me to go down a little trail. As it had been cold and rainy all weekend I just wanted a hot bath and warm meal (I fasted on home made fruit juice all weekend) but obeyed. Then He directed me to take a photo of a hill covered in beautiful fall foliage. I did not want to at first because many photos were taken the previous day but am glad I obeyed.                               

When I got home there was something in that photo so it was enlarged. There on the bottom of the hill were seven wild turkeys (do you know that God promises to bless us seven times in the Bible). The photo looks great.                                                                                                  

Not only did my Beloved heal, refresh and renew me that weekend He blessed me with the photo’s I was praying for, for over a year.                               

Jehovah constantly amazes me at the incredible (and even humourous) ways He answers my prayers.  Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emunah(Jehovah is faithful ) for promising to answer my prayers in Your time and Your amazing ways. You inform us to pray without ceasing, believing You will answer our prayers and You are always faithful to answer them in Your Divine way and Your Divine time. I exalt You in the name of He who came to earth to pay for my sins in Your time and in Your way   Jesus Christ. Amen

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

He Took Me Where I Did Not Want To Go.

WE MUST LET GO

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9    New King James Version

 

When I completed my TESOL course the intention was to teach in Central America. The Lord however was directing me to China. I thought He was crazy and there was no way that destination was even on the radar.

As I love Jesus I obediently ventured to China even though there was dread in my heart because it was a communist country and I am a Christian.

It has been a difficult ten years travelling and teaching all along the coast from the north to the south. Through His wise guidance He has lead me to people who were open to listening about Him and accepting Him.

Sometimes the Lord will lead you where you do not want to go because you are afraid. Trust Him, obey Him and follow Him. He will be with you every step of the way.

Reflecting back on the experience the understanding came to me that His way was, is and always will be the best way.

A bonus is how much that in my difficult times and learning to trust in Him we have grown oh so very close.

 

What a marvelous blessing that is as well as the fact that I have helped guide others into Christ’s wonderful family.

Prayer: Thank you Holy Spirit Rohi (Holy Spirit our Sheppard) for being such a patient, wise and strong guide in my life to take me to the places You have prepared for me to do the work You have prepared for me. I praise You in the name of the greatest Sheppard Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

He Only Answers When Asked.

TRUST IN HIM

I sought the Lord, and He heard me, and delivered me from all my fearsPsalm 34:4 King James Version

The eternal God is your refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms.” Deuteronomy 33:27

When we are in trouble we need to seek Jehovah’s guidance, have faith in Him and obey Him in order for it to work.

When we approach Jehovah with a sincere heart in times of trouble with complete confidence He hears and answers our prayers he will answer.

I know there was one time when I was in a dangerous situation and saw no way out. I prayed to my beloved with fear but trust. He delivered me in an amazing way. As I felt His hand moving in the situation, a feeling of calm and confidence overwhelmed me. He delivered me in an unusual way but I had trust in Him.

 

It was when I was hiking along the coast during low tide on a trail that went for a long distance.

 

I did not understand about how high tides rose and fell.

I was trapped on a small island and felt the ocean was going to wash me away.

There was no civilization either way for about forty kilometers.

I felt moved to climb to the top and there was a little hole just big enough for me to climb through.

 

Even though there was a fierce storm with raging waves I was secure in my little cubby hole.

 

I was enveloped in a sense of peace and serenity and enjoyed the best nights sleep of the entire hiking trip.

 

He has done this numerous times in my walk with Him and He will with you as well.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Shammah (The Lord is present) for blessing me with walking with me through my numerous trials and tribulations, sorrows and snares.  I give thanks for this wonderful blessing in the name of He who was with His disciples through the storm Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Three Quarters Given.

PERFECT LOVE

 

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).

He calms the storm. Proverbs 107:29 New King James Version

There was a bad storm coming our way today with snow storms turning to freezing rain. This makes driving extremely treacherous.

Mom had a friend driving her to another city for medical treatment as well as another friend that had to drive her daughter to another city for an operation.

I prayed the Lord bless their journey with holding off the storms until mom and her friend safely returned home.

When she left there were light flurries.  They continued throughout the day.

Just as mom and her friend got home the freezing rain began.

Three quarters of my prayers were given to me.

I prayed for mom to have a safe trip there and back and it was done.

I prayed for moms friend to have a safe trip there and back and she just missed being involved in a terrible pile up on the highway and got back safely.

The Lord held off the freezing rain until after they came home.

Although it did snow out it was not a blizzard with white outs.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Yeshua (God our rescuer) for with holding Your tempest until my loved ones arrived safely home.  I praise you in the name of He who calmed the storm for His terrified disciples on the sea Jesus Christ. Amen.

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