This is the Secret

 Let all that I am praise the Lord. I will praise the Lord as long as I live. I will sing praises to my God with my dying breath. Psalm 146:2 The Holy Bible, The New Living Testament Version

This is the secret to having joy in your life, singing praises to Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit at every opportunity through out the day.

Try this: thank Him before eating a meal (believe me, you go live in a third world country and you will see how good you have it).

Thank Him for giving you a place to live, I have seen many that live in one room as a family with no indoor heating or cooling.

Thank Him for the water you drink, I have seen many that live off of three liters of water for cooking, cleaning and drinking, try that some time.

Thank Him for living in a secure place, I have lived where it was common in the morning walk to see dead folks laying the street.

Thank Him for the air you breathe. I have lived in places where old folks drop to the ground and choke to death off of the polluted air.

Most importantly, thank Him for blessing you with the greatest blessing of all, a loving relationship with Them and for them caring for you and caring about you. Then, you will find your life filled with joy no matter what your circumstances are.

A grateful heart is a joyful heart. Joseph a son of Jehovah

 

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El Simchath Gili (Psalms 43:4 GOD My Exceeding Joy) for blessing me with Divine exhilarating joy that can only be gained by being in communion with You. It is the most special treasure there could ever be. I praise You in the name of He with whom I experience the greatest joy being with Jesus Christ. Amen

May Christ bless you with love, joy and peace today and every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Security of the One Who Trusts In

I AM SECURE

I have changed the words to first person so it sounds as if Jehovah is talking with me. See how it sounds when it is read like He is talking with you personally.

Psalm 91 Holy Bible Amplified Version I dwell in the shelter of the Most High Will and remain secure and rest in the shadow of the Almighty [whose power no enemy can withstand].
I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress, My God, in whom I trust [with great confidence, and on whom I rely]!”

For He will save me from the trap of the fowler, And from the deadly pestilence.
He will cover me and completely protect me with His pinions, And under His wings me will find refuge; His faithfulness is a shield and a wall. I will not be afraid of the terror of night, Nor of the arrow that flies by day,

Nor of the pestilence that stalks in darkness, Nor of the destruction (sudden death) that lays waste at noon.

A thousand may fall at my side And ten thousand at my right hand, But danger will not come near me. Because I trust and obey Jehovah many diseases which are caused by promiscuous life style will not affect me. Because I listen to Jehovah I will not fall for scammers whose only end is your destruction.

I will only [be a spectator as I] look on with my eyes And witness the [divine] repayment of the wicked [as I watch safely from the shelter of the Most High].

Because I have made the Lord, [who is] my refuge, is a place of safety and security,

Even the Most High, my dwelling place,

No evil will befall me, Nor will any plague come near my tent. For He will command His angels in regard to me,

To protect and defend and guard me in all my ways [of obedience and service].

They will lift me up in their hands,

So that I do not [even] strike my foot against a stone.

I will tread upon the lion and cobra; The young lion and the serpent I will trample underfoot. The lion devours(tries to take your love joy and peace from you as well as material things like money and the cobra spits poison which is lies and gossip. “Because he set his love on Me, therefore I will save him; I will set him [securely] on high, because he knows My name [he confidently trusts and relies on Me, knowing I will never abandon him, no, never].

“I call upon Jehovah, and He will answer me; He will be with my in trouble; He will rescue me and honor me.

“With a long life Jehovah will satisfy me And Jehovah will let me see My salvation.”

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) that You are always with me. Even when it seems like everything around me is being ripped apart I have faith in Your Divine providence that even better is awaiting me when You rebuild me. I thank you in the name of He whose resurrection rebuilt His disciples even when their world was turned upside down when they saw their Savior on the cross Jesus Christ. Amen

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love fill your heart today and every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Jehovahs Emotional Guidebook.

be encouraged

 

 This is Jehovahs emotional guidebook. I have changed the words to first person so it sounds as if Jehovah is talking with me. See how it sounds when it is read like He is talking with you personally. When I feel all alone, I meditate upon Hebrews 13:5 “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”

When I am fearful, I meditate upon Isaiah 41:10 “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God.”

When I feel weak, I meditate upon Philippians 4:13 “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”

When I am torn between following the ways of the world or the ways of the Lord, I meditate upon Proverbs 3:5-6 “I trust in the Lord with all my heart and lean not on my own understanding; in all my ways acknowledge him, and he will make my paths straight.”

When I feel lost, I meditate upon Matthew 7:7 “When I ask it will be given to me; when I seek and I will find; when I knock and the door will be opened to me. For, everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened.”

When I feel inadequate in knowing God’s will for my life, I meditate upon Psalm 86:11 “Teach me your way, O Lord, and I will walk in your truth; give me an undivided heart.”

When I am tempted by the world, I meditate upon 1 Peter 5:8 “Be self-controlled and alert. My enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because I know that your brothers throughout the world are undergoing the same kind of sufferings.”

Following these guidelines every day helps me to defeat the devil and his minions and brings a lot of peace to my day.

Prayer: I thank you Jehovah KalEl (voice of God) for the numerous ways in which You speak to me. It always amazes me that You always know the proper words to say in the proper manner and in the proper time. I praise You in the name of He who spoke the most amazing words ever spoken Jesus Christ. Amen

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

It Happens to All of Us

GUARD YOUR INPUT

Watch out that no poisonous root of bitterness grows up to trouble you, corrupting many. Hebrews 12:15 The Holy Bible New Living Translation

It happens to all of us.

There are folks that abuse us at some point in our lives.

Some repent and some do not.

Irregardless, the wound cuts deep and there is bitterness in our hearts. If we are not careful the root will grow deep like a dandelion root. It will poison our spiritual life, our mental life and our physical life until it destroys us. The root grows too deep for us to rip it out. We need to call upon the Master Gardener for that.

His name is Jesus and you can call Him anytime at P.R.A.Y.

Do not think this will be a one time call. Sometimes the seed comes back and we need to call the Master Gardener again. Sometimes those weeds will never be completely eradicated until we reach the Gates of Heavens home for us.

Jesus is the Master Gardener. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah YAHWEH Ropheka :God our healer, for blessing me with Your Divine healing. Some of the wounds were deep and infested my soul for decades. The only way healing occurred was to place the infection at Your feet and trust in Your gracious healing. I thank you in the name of the grand Healer Jesus Christ. Amen

May Christ bless you with love, joy and peace today and every day.

Stop Before A

do not allow them to control you

  Starting a quarrel is like opening a floodgate, so stop before a dispute breaks out. Proverbs 17:14 Holy Bible, New Living Translation  

Have you ever watched water gush over a dam? Imagine standing under its power. It would be extremely stupid and devastating.

In every relationship there are sore points and unresolved issues. When these sore points are brought up it is opening the flood gates of hurt and pain. Instead of bringing them up whenever you cannot get your own way the most important thing to do is pray for resolution, preferably with a Christian Councillor.

Most times the guilty party refuses to go into counseling, most times it is because of pride. One they do not want to admit they were wrong and two they do not want to take responsibility for their actions and three the injured soul does not want to let go of the hurt, they use it like a crutch and they use it to manipulate.

When the other party begins to go on this stupid wheel of destruction, it does cause deep cuts with the words that are said in the heated battle, just inform them that if they wish to continue the discussion we will do so in a Christian councilors office. If you refuse to do so it is an admission of guilt on your behalf. When you are mature enough and ready for reconciliation let me know and we will go to the Christian councilors office. Other wise this discussion is over. Then just walk away. It works wonders for me.

If you value a relationship, you must be willing to go into counseling. If it is not important enough for you to go into counseling, then this relationship is over. This prevents a lot of unnecessary trouble in our lives. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah El-Deah (God of knowledge) bless me with the knowledge to know when to shut up, when to pray for words of healing and reconciliation and when to seek out good Christian councilors when in a dispute. I sincerely request this in the name of He who knew when to speak and the right words to say Jesus Christ. 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

All in One Word.

Today our world is plagued by rage and depression. It oozes into every cranny of society, rich and poor, man and woman, of every colour and nationality.

Everyone is asking why.

It can all be summed up in one word: unforgiveness.

When we refuse to forgive someone for an offense they have committed upon us it seeps into every aspect of our life. That is why there is so much road rage, why there is so much drug abuse, why there is so much failed marriage, why there is so much in fighting in families.

Why do folks refuse to forgive?

Because, we are greedy.

Instead of leaving justice in Jehovahs capable hands we demand the right for blood by our own.

Unforgiveness is a form of selfishness. We demand our pound of flesh.Joseph a son of Jehovah

The cure for this selfishness can only be found by laying our grievances at the feet of Jesus and trusting Him to deliver true justice in His time and in His way.

Speaking from personal experience, Christs justice is far more terrible than anything we could administer to the unrepentant.

The Lord works out everything to its proper end— even the wicked for a day of disaster. The Lord detests all the proud of heart. Be sure of this: They will not go unpunished. Proverbs 16: 4-5 Holy Bible New Living Translation

In the mean time, we are to pray for the offended to come to repentance for their own good.

If possible stay away from abusive folks and if you have to deal with them do so graciously but firmly. Let them know their attitude and behavior is not welcome nor tolerated. Therefore, the relationship shall remain formal, but, if they repent the door of friendship shall be opened

Prayer: Please Jehovah Elohe Tishuathi (Psalms 18:46&51:14) – GOD of My selfishnessSalvation bless me to always have a forgiving heart towards others as You do towards me. Please bless me with the wisdom, strength and provision to walk away from habitual  abusers and to pray for them to come unto repentance as well. I humbly request this in the name of He whose blood made forgiveness possible 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

Have You Ever Worked For

GREATEST CONTENTMENT

Work willingly at whatever you do, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people. Colossians 3:23Holy Bible, New Living Translation Version

Have you ever worked for the nit pickers before?

Nit picker are those that no matter how good your work is they can always find something wrong with it. They take all the steam out of your desire to excel at what you are doing. This is a real tragedy when the nit pickers are parents.

It takes a lot of work and therapy to get over their poison they inject into their childrens impressionable minds.

Teachers can have the same short term affect.

When I do work I like to step back and ask my Heavenly Father if He is pleased with what has been done.

Most times He is and there is a warm feeling of satisfaction flowing through me.

When He isn’t there is no scolding. He just redirects my effort and then I step back and marvel at what we have accomplished and gratefully thank Him. There has been numerous times when He guides me to do something that I have no desire to do but do it with great gusto to please Him, which gives immeasurable pleasure to me.                                   

Most times when the project is completed I see what He was doing and the finished project looks fantastic even though it looked stupid and was laughed at by others or looked ugly but was beautiful when completed.

Sometimes we will not see the purpose of His task until we enter our Heavenly home. That is okay though because we take satisfaction in knowing what we did pleased our Heavenly King in the here and now.

Work for Jehovah, not man. It is appreciated so much more. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever) for the esteem of being Your humble, obedient, loyal servant. It is the greatest delight that can be offered to me. I exalt You in the name of the King of Kings 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.

He Always Wins.

WHEN SATAN ATTACKS

The Lord says I will fight those who fight you Isaiah 49:25 Holy Bible, New Living Translation

This is not just a promise to an ancient nation but unto every child that belongs unto Jehovah.

One thing I have noticed over the decades not just in my own life but also in the lives of our brothers and sisters in Christ is that it always seems like the wicked are winning when in a battle against us. Then just as it looks like certain defeat, Jehovah comes into the fray and we are delivered.

Oh, that does not mean we will go without our battle scars, but they are used to teach us and to strengthen us.

Sometimes it looks like the enemy has won and we move on in life but there comes a time when we encounter our foe again, it may be a few days later, it may be a few decades later but it is shocking to see how much of their lives has been destroyed through their wicked actions. I stand in awe and terror when witnessing Jehovahs hand of justice upon the wicked.              

Jehovah fights fair and He always wins. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Gador Milchamah (The Lord is Mighty in Battle) for being the undefeatable protector of Your loving adoring child. Thank you for smack downing satan and his minions when they attack me. Thank you for turning my foes weapons against them to cause their self destruction. I praise You in the name of the conquering King of whom I am His worshiping servant King Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with peace and joy every day.

Did Jesus Use A

JESUS TALKS WITH ME

Did Jesus use a modem, for the sermon on the mount?
Did He ever use a broadcast fax, to get His message out?
Did disciples carry cell phones, as they went about?
Did Jesus use a modem, for the sermon on the Mount? Did the Apostle use a laptop, with lots of RAM and ROM?
Did he use an email alias such as This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ?
Did the man from Macedonia send an email saying “come”?
Did the Apostle use a laptop with lots of RAM and ROM?

Did Moses use a joystick at the parting of the sea?
And a Global Positioning System to show him where to be?
Did he write the law on tablets, or are they really on CD?
Did Moses use a joystick at the parting of the sea?

Did Jesus really die for us that Friday on the tree?
Or was it just a hologram, a bit of wizardry?
Can you download the video clip to play on your PC?
Did Jesus really die for us one day upon a tree?

If in your life, the voice of God is sometimes hard to hear,
With other voices calling, His doesn’t touch your ear.
Then set aside the laptop and modem, unplug the fancy gear,
Open up that dusty Bible, and talk to Him in prayer.

When I Sing Your Praises

  Our ancestors trusted in you,and you rescued them. They cried out to you and were saved. They trusted in you and were never disgraced. Psalm 22:4-5 The Holy Bible New Living Translation

One time during a particular tribulation I began to meditate upon on the goodness our Heavenly Beloved has bestowed upon me and oh so many times He was walked with me through the hard times. My heart transformed from one of desperation, and weeping to explosive joy.

Now I understand where it says to sing joyfully during difficult experiences. I understand now how we can rejoice and sing praises in our suffering.

As we suffer we call out to our Beloved. He reminds us of all the times He has rescued us before and it gladdens our heart. We cannot help but sing out in praise and joy songs of adulation. Then we reflect on how He will deliver us from what ever trails and troubles, sorrows and snares we are experiencing now. This leads us to sing ever more exuberantly of joy and love for such an amazing Heavenly Father. Remembering Jehovahs past deliverance blesses us with confidence in His deliverance in the present trouble. Joseph a son of Jehovah

“Trust the past to God’s mercy, the present to God’s love and the future to God’s providence.” St. Augustine of Hippo

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emunah (God is faithful) for reminding me of Your faithfulness to me in my times of difficulty. I praise You in the name of He who saved His disciples during storms at sea, Jesus Christ. Amen

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