A closer walk with our beloved friend.


It is Hard to Be

Be happy with those who are happy, and weep with those who weep. Romans 12:15 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

It is hard to be happy when the one that is rejoicing is happy because they got what you wanted.

So, say you wanted that promotion and one of your less qualified co-workers got it instead of you. Instead of being bitter, take time to pray to Jehovah to bless you with the maturity to go over and congratulate them. That shows maturity.

It is difficult to come along side of another who is suffering loss which causes them to weep. That is why we need to ask Jehovah the proper manner to comfort, encourage and heal them.

Before we act we are to ask for Jehovahs guidance in the proper manner to do so, so that we bring glory and honour to Him. Joseph- Anthony, a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah Heseh (God is love 1 John 4:16 ) send The Holy Spirit to help me be loving towards others as You are loving towards me. I humbly request this in the name of my loving best friend Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be loving today towards others as our Heavenly Poppa has been towards you. Joseph a son of Jehovah

To Protect Us in That

“Give all your worries and cares to God, for He cares about you. Stay alert! Watch out for your great enemy, the devil. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour. Stand firm against him, and be strong in your faith.” 1 Peter 5:7-9 NLT

Prayer: Oh Jehovah ‘Uzam (The Lord is our Strength in Trouble Isaiah 49:26) I know the devil and his minions are always roaming the earth looking for any of Your children in a moment of weakness so he can destroy us.

Thank you that You bless us with The Holy Spirit to protect us in that dangerous time and if we fall victim to one of them The Holy Spirit will only allow them to harm us so much before He comes charging in like a protective momma bear.

Thank you that when I call out unto You, You always come to my rescue. You are better than the cavalry. You are the super hero of super hero’s. None are even Your equal much less Your superior.

This thought in of itself encourages me when the lions are stalking me for I know nothing can defeat You when You go into battle to protect one that belongs to You.

I praise You in the name of the greatest super hero there ever was, is or will be, Jesus Christ. Amen.

May you always walk close with the Sheppard to be protected from the ravaging lions. Joseph- Anthony a son of Jehovah

I Pray Produces Lots Of

This is my garden I am planting this year that I pray produces lots of harvest.

First there is three rows of peas

Peace of mind – Romans 14:5
Peace of heart – Acts 15:9
Peace of soul – 1 Peter 1:22

Next to them is planted four rows of squash

Squash gossip – Leviticus 19:16
Squash selfishness – Luke 18:11-14
Squash grumbling – John 6:43, James 5:9
Squash indifference – Mark 14:32 – 41

Of course we need lots of lettuce in our daily diets

Lettuce be kind – 1 Peter 2:1-3
Lettuce be faithful – Dan 3:16-18
Lettuce be obedient – 1 John 3:22
Lettuce love one another – John 3:16

And finally, there needs to be plenty of Thyme to nurture our relationship with Jehovah and others as well as to keep the satanic pests away which will destroy the rest of the crops.

Thyme for God – Psalm 3:1-8
Thyme for prayer – Psalm 54:4
Thyme for each other – John 15:12-14
Thyme for Bible study – Ezra 7-10

So what are you planting this year?


You Have to be a Member Of

  We know that in everything God works for the good of those who love him Romans 8:28 The Holy Bible The New Century Testament

If you want the reward you have to be a member of the family.

So many so called professing Christians cry baby because Jehovah does not answer their prayers.

But, riddle me this: how much do they love Jehovah?

Do they put Him first and themselves last or the other way around. If Jehovah moves them to do something for Him that they do not want to do, will they do it or just ignore Him?

Is the first thing they do in the morning say a good morning prayer to Poppa and feast on His divine meal of love and companionship or is it feeding their stomachs?

Do they seek to do His will during the day or demands He bows to theirs ?

So do they ask for a good seat in the coffee shop where they can be alone so they can play computer games? Or do they pray The Holy Spirit guides them to a table where there is someone waiting and needing someone to share Jesus with them?

Do they pray Jehovah share with them the beauty of His creation at some time of the day or do they pray they can find someone to share some interesting gossip with on social sites on the internet ( I do not know why they call the social sites because from what I have seen most of the ones on there are not very social but rather very egotistical and judgmental )?

Is the last thing they do before going to bed saying a prayer for all the blessings, great and small, Jehovah has blessed them with or is it thinking of something insignificant like the score in a baseball game?

If you want Jehovahs love, you must be willing to love Him in return. If you want Jehovahs blessing you must be willing to allow Him to use you to be a blessing to Him by blessing others.

If you want Jehovahs blessings you must be thankful for the ones He has already given you.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El SIMCHAH GIYL (God my Exceeding Joy) John 15:11 ) for blessing me with such overwhelming love and joy for You as The Holy Spirit enlightens me to all the wonderful blessings showered upon me by Your gracious love every day. I praise You in the name of my greatest gift of all, Jesus Christ. Amen

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 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


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
