You are Mine.

NEVER ENDING LOVE AFFAIR

 

I have called you by name; you are mine. Isaiah 43:1 The Holy Bible New Living Translation

There are two important facts in this verse.

The first one states that Jehovah calls out to you. No one “finds Jesus” as if it were some effort on their own. Jesus comes to you. Do not be arrogant and take credit for something you did not do. Instead, be eternally grateful every day. Thank Jehovah and Jesus for coming to you, bringing you out of darkness and into their brilliant light of love.

Second: We all belong to something. Perhaps, it is a sports team or a type of music or whatever it may be, there is always something that owns our heart.

For me, Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit own my mind, body and spirit. And, I cannot think of anyone or anything that is more loving and caring than them. It is a great comfort and encouragement knowing that I belong to them.

We are adopted into the most royal family of all. That makes us sons and daughters of our Heavenly Father Jehovah. What an awesome reality. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer : Thank you Jehovah Abba (God our Father) for calling out to me from the darkness to come into Your Divine light. Thank you for adopting me into Your Holy family and for the blessing of always being able to commune with my Poppa (You), my big brother (Jesus) and my amazing Guidance Councillor (the Holy Spirit). I exalt You fro these awesome gifts in the name of my big brother 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

You Need to Give the One.

 But the loving kindness of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting on those who [reverently] fear Him Psalm 103:17 Holy Bible, Amplified Version                                                

To fear in this instance means to respect. To revere means to respect in awe and means to be lovingly obedient. Therefore you need to give the one in order to receive the other.

Think of it, have you ever given something to someone who is not only ungrateful but demanding?

I find the one goes with the other.

Not only are they ungrateful but they demand more and more while giving you nothing in return. Just ask most parents of adult children and grandparents today and they will tell you how that feels.

How much more is it insulting for you to behave in this disgusting behaviour towards our loving Heavenly Father?

The only time you talk with Him is when you want something from Him. You never say thank you and you never give Him anything in return.

Why would He bless you?

On the other hand, there are the children that are grateful to their parents for their help, are willing to help them and respect them.

Ask any parent of an adult child how it feels to have a child like that. How much more delightful do you think it feels for Jehovah to have such a treasure of a child like that?

Do you not think it brings Him great delight to bless a child like that?

Which one are you?

Be respectful to He who has an everlasting love for you. It came at a great cost. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Abba (our most loving Father) for blessing me with adopting me into Your Divine family. I relish spending quality time with You my Father, Jesus my big brother and the Holy Spirit my mentor every day. I deeply appreciate Your Heavenly love and You accepting mine. In the greatest acclimation I thank You in my reverential big brothers name Jesus Christ. Amen

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

It is Made in the Small Ones.

FOLLOW JESUS

Blessed (happy, fortunate, to be envied) are the undefiled (the upright, truly sincere, and blameless) in the way [of the revealed will of God], who walk (order their conduct and conversation) in the law of the Lord (the whole of God‘s revealed will). Psalm 119:1 The Holy Bible Amplified Version                                                                    

When I was a tree planter we used to plant trees the size of the average baby finger. Yet, in fifty years they grew into seventy feet tall majestic trees. At first they would grow inches every day until they reached a certain height. Then the growth slowed to inches in a week or month.      

So too it is with most Christians. When first adopted into Christs family we grow in leaps and bounds. Then our growth slows. Some become complacent and stay there. Those that persevere grow in inches in weeks, months and or years. But, we continue to grow. It is a lifetime process that continues until we reach Heavens Gate.

“Character may be manifested in the great moments, but it is made in the small ones.” — Phillips Brooks

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Bara (The Lord Creator) for the slow but steady process in maturing me into the beautiful child You intend for me to be. I praise You in the name of He who I deeply desire to be a carbon copy of at the end of Your process 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

You Will Never Get it Back.

                                          

 So then, while we [as individual believers] have the opportunity.Galatians 6:10 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

One of the greatest regrets in life is the missed opportunities to help others. It was times when I intentionally turned my back on the opportunity. Afterwards the devil laid a guilt trip on me by trying to tell me Jehovah was ashamed of me. That is not true but He was disappointed.

True, He will present many other opportunities and regret is for the soul or souls I did not help. There is shame even though He forgives me. 

The other regret is for the soul or souls I did not help. There is shame in the heart.

“If you lose an Opportunity you will be like one who lets the bird fly away; you will never get it back.” — John of the Cross

Do not dwell on your failure to do good when the opportunity arises but pray the Holy Spirit blesses you with being attentive to the opportunities and to bless you with the fortitude to obey Jehovahs nudging to do good. It is hard at first but once you make a habit out of it it becomes easier and your life is filled with a lot of joy.

Prayer: All glory to You my Beloved Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) for Your favour of blessing me with bountiful opportunities to do good unto others so as to help them and to glorify Thy most Holy name. The added benefit is the expansion of spiritual wealth that multiplies with each act of goodness unto others. I exalt Thee in the name of He whose gift of His sacrifice blessed me with adoption into Your Holy family Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Mine is the Best Daddy.

God loves each of

 

But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name:  who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. John 1:12-13 New King James Version

When we were physically born some of us may have been blessed with great dads while some may not have been.

 

When, by Gods grace, we are adopted into Jehovahs holy family we are blessed with the best daddy there every was, is and will be.

He loves us as no other can, His advice is the wisest ever given, His strength and power is unmatched. His care and provisions can not be matched.

So do you lovingly, appreciatively and respectfully thank Him every day for being the best daddy for you?

I do and I bless Him for all the numerous blessing He showers upon me , great and small, through out the day as well.

 

Prayer: Oh my most awesome Abba (God our father) I deeply wish I could hug You, kiss You and thank You for Your awesome gift of adopting me into Your magnificent holy family. As that is not possible please accept Your humble child’s love, adoration, respect and praise. I meekly ask this in the name of Your most special son Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Are You a Stranger to Them?

Image

I have become a stranger to my brothers, And an alien to my mother’s children. Psalm 69:8New King James Version                                                                                      

When you become close friends many times you regard yourselves as brothers or sisters.

When you become a Christian you do not fit in with the old crowd. Your likes and dislikes change. Soon you become like a stranger to the old crowd. Many times they will become your most difficult adversaries. It will become difficult to walk away from them because you were so close but now you belong to the Christian brother and sisterhood.

That does not mean you cannot enjoy friendship with unbelievers. It means that many times you will have to walk away from friendships that were at one time very close. 

 

Have you ever lived in another country where they have different cultures, customs and languages? Many times they look at you and think you are crazy because you do things differently than they do. Why do you not do the things we do (after living in China for about ten years I experienced a lot of this) will be a common mantra.                                        

The same will occur with your biological family.                                                                    

They will see the change in you and cannot figure out why you have changed. Many times they will become hostile to the changes and indeed you will find yourself ostracized from family get togethers.                                                                                             

It will be painful but just remember, now you are a member of a Holy family. What is taken away from you in the world Jehovah will more than replace in His divine family. That does not mean it will be a family where everybody holds hands and sings Jesus loves me. There is always problems in every family, including the Christian one.          

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Yehew (God of His people) for the wonderful blessing of adopting me into Your precious holy family. Please heal the wounds that are caused by separation from those with whom I was once close with but they have distanced themselves from me since becoming one of Your righteous children. I gratefully offer this prayer in the name of my best friend Jesus Christ. Amen.                                                                                   

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