Boast in This.

                                                  

But let the one who boasts boast in this, that he understands and knows Me [and acknowledges Me and honors Me as God and recognizes without any doubt], that I am the Lord who practices loving kindness, justice and righteousness on the earth, for in these things I delight,” says the Lord. Jeremiah 9:24 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

It irritates me to no end to listen to narcissists go on and on and on boasting about how great they are and all of their accomplishments. My patience becomes exhausted and I ask them if they believe the sun revolves around them (well, according to many mommies and grandma’s it does). They become indignant and walk away.

When I get talking with someone and the discussion comes around to where we have been in our lives and our experiences in our lives most folks are in awe of the incredible things I have done and seen and tell me so.

I just laugh and explain to them that it was Jehovah who orchestrated those events for a specific purpose. Sometimes it was to serve Him, sometimes it was to reveal His awesome beauty and majesty to me and sometimes it was just because He wanted to be alone with me and we can share quiet time in loving communion together (those are the times I like the most).

He ALWAYS receives all the glory and honour.

Of course He does, He is the one that is responsible for them. Be polite, give credit to the one deserving it. Joseph a son of Jehovah 

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Eli (The Lord my God ) for presenting me with plentiful opportunities to praise You and share the amazing things You have done in my life and through my life with others. I pray my Love that through the sharing of these events it will encourage others to come unto the Supreme God. I humbly request this in the name of He who always gave praise unto Thee 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

Gratitude is Not Only

Know and fully recognize with gratitude that the Lord Himself is God; It is He who has made us, not we ourselves [and we are His]. Psalm 100:3Holy Bible, Amplified Version

Gratitude is described as acknowledgement of having received something good from another.

Yes we are to know that Jehovah made us and not being insulting idiots and believe that we are descended from monkeys. We are to recognize which means we are to have a clear understanding that we are a Divine creation.

To me that fills me with gratitude and meaning.

After all, how many folks go around and wonder why they are here?

I know why I am here. I was created to be blessed with a Divine loving relationship with our Heavenly Father. I am His and He is mine.

In gratitude I am obedient unto His direction in my life. This gives me Divine purpose.

Again, how many folks wonder what their purpose in life is.

I know mine.

It is to serve an amazing King.

For it is by grace [God’s remarkable compassion and favor drawing you to Christ] that you have been saved [actually delivered from judgment and given eternal life] through faith. And this [salvation] is not of yourselves [not through your own effort], but it is the [undeserved, gracious] gift of God; not as a result of [your] works [nor your attempts to keep the Law], so that no one will [be able to] boast or take credit in any way [for his salvation]. For we are His workmanship [His own master work, a work of art], created in Christ Jesus [reborn from above—spiritually transformed, renewed, ready to be used] for good works, which God prepared [for us] beforehand [taking paths which He set], so that we would walk in them [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us]. Ephesians 2:8-10 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

This leads me to a virtuous life.

Virtue means a conduct that conforms to an accepted standard of right and wrong.

Whose standard of what is right or wrong will you trust, Jehovahs or the worlds? Look around at the world and see if you want to live that type of life, I certainly do not.

Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues, but the parent of all the others.” — Cicero

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Bara (The Lord Creator) for creating in my life a heart dedicated to nurturing a loving obedient live dedicated to You. I love You and praise You in the name of my Beloved brother in Your Heavenly family Jesus Christ. Amen

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