But by Subtraction

 But godliness actually is a source of great gain when accompanied by contentment [that contentment which comes from a sense of inner confidence based on the sufficiency of God]. 1 Timothy 6:6 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

The more you have, the less happy and contented you are. That is a proven fact.

Most folks are puppets in the hands of big monopolies. They say if you have this you will be happy. Then, they charge you exorbitant amounts of money to purchase their product. Because you cannot afford it, it puts you into debt. Then, next year they come out with a new and improved product and the process it repeated.

If it gets between you and Christ, get rid of it. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Going into debt and working long hours only to be exhausted keeps you away from Christ.

Live a simple life, you will be much more contented.

I speak from a lot of experience. I have always lived a simple, frugal lifestyle and for the most part am very contented. I see those I grew up with being very materialistic and are the most miserable folks you ever meet.

For me, my greatest joy, and satisfaction is when sharing a conversation with Jesus. It need not be about my problems (although there is nothing wrong with that but it is not to be the only time you talk with Him). Many times it is when we are walking in His creation (nature) that we just talk about anything and everything like the best friends we are. It is so enjoyable. He opens my eyes to all the beauty around me and how He loves me and takes care of me. I am contented with His daily provision in my life.

I have lived in abundance and in abject poverty but learning to depend upon and be grateful for Jehovahs daily provisions is one of the greatest lessons learned. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Now I do not worry about where my next meal is coming from nor hoard things. Now I do not foolishly waste His daily provisions but use them wisely as a manner in which to show proper respect and appreciation for my Fathers provisions.

“Contentment is not by addition but by subtraction: seeking to add a thing will not bring contentment. Instead, subtracting from your desires until you are satisfied only with Christ brings contentment.” Jeremiah Burroughs

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) for patiently teaching me that my wants will never bring me satisfaction but being content in Your daily provision brings a lot of contentment, peace, appreciation, respect and peace. Next to being blessed with loving communion with You, these are the greatest of gifts You daily bless me with. I am in deep gratitude to You in the name of Your greatest gift to me 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.

To be Nothing.

he make priceless art

Even though I am nothing at all.2 Corinthians 12:11 New Living Translation

Saul was a pretty big man in the Jewish community. It was when He met Christ that he learned to be nothing of Himself so that he would be everything for Christ.

Notice I said he “would be” not could be.

It was only when Saul died that Paul began to live.

So too it is with us.

We the individual must die so that we will become children of Jehovah and servants of Christ. It must no longer be me first in our lives but Christ first in everything in our lives that we truly become royal servants.

“Believers have not been distinctly guided to see that nothing is more natural and beautiful and blessed than to be nothing, so that God may be all…” — Andrew Murray

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Hamelech ( Jesus my Lord King ) for the honour of being a humble servant of the most high of King of Kings. It is a great tribute to receive such a high calling. I glorify You in Your highest majestic name. Amen

May love be in your life, may hope be in your heart and may peace be in your every day walk with Christ.

So Little Time For

PRAY EVERYWHERE

 But as for me, my prayer is unto thee, O LORD, in an acceptable time: O God, in the multitude of thy mercy hear me, in the truth of thy salvation. Bible in Basic English

Quick, tell me what is the first thing you do when you wake up in the morning?

For me it is going to conversation with my Heavenly Beloved, beginning with saying good morning I love you. Then giving Him thanks and requesting His guidance through out the coming day.

Quick: what is the fist thing you do when you climb into bed at night?

For me it is giving thanks to my Heavenly Beloved for all of His blessings He has showered on my through out the day and asking for forgiveness for when I messed up. And ending with saying good night I love you.

Then, there are the numerous times through out the day when we have conversations. Sometimes it is with what is happening to me during the day. Sometimes it is thanking Him for the blessings He has given me. Sometimes it is just admiring the beauty He is sharing with me and talking about it.

Prayer should be the first thing a Christian does upon opening their eyes and the last thing they do before closing them. It should be as natural as breathing. Joseph a son of Jehovah

“Why is there so much running to and fro to meetings, conventions, fellowship gatherings and yet so little time for prayer?” — Andrew Bonar

Prayer: Thank you oh my deepest love Jehovah Shammah ( The Lord is Present) for the most wonderful blessing of all, being in Your loving presence every day. It is the most precious treasure there could ever be. I exalt You in the name of He with whom I look forward to receiving the ultimate treasure of walking with Him and talking with Him in Your Heavenly home 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

Lived Out in Me.

NOT TRY, TRUST

 The apostles said to the Lord, “Increase our faith [our ability to confidently trust in God and in His power].”Luke 17:5 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

There is a reason we need to humbly request the Lord to increase our faith.

The number one reason is because as we increase our faith (which means trust) in our Beloved we get to know Him ,love Him and worship Him more and more thereby getting ever closer to Him.

The number two reason is that when our faith increases so too does our confidence in the Lord whenever satan comes a knocking. Having confidence in the Lord terrifies satan and his minions. Number three is because when others observe our faith it is a great witness to the power of Christ. This is a powerful witnessing tool.

Show me the way, Lord, let my light shine As an example of good to mankind; Help them to see the patterns of Thee, Shining in beauty, lived out in me. —Neuer

Mind you, we cannot increase our faith without suffering but in the aftermath of our sufferings we are every deeper in gratitude for Jehovahs loving providence. This brings us closer to Him not just on special occasion but in beautiful daily communion with Him. What a blessing that is.

“God delights to increase the faith of his children. We ought, instead of wanting no trials before victory, no exercise for patience, to be willing to take them from God’s hands as a means. Trials, obstacles, difficulties, and sometimes defeats, are the very food of faith.” — George Müller

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emunah (God is faithful) for being faithful unto this loving child of Yours that You have delivered the right amount of trials and tribulations, sorrows and pain to bring me ever closer to You in faith, understanding and love. I exalt You in the name of He who suffered these in extremes all the to and including the cross for me Jesus Christ. Amen.

Christ blesses us with love, peace and joy. May you be blessed with many opportunities to share these with others today.

It Is the Sweetest.

JEHOVAHS COMMUNION

Now no one can look at the sun, bright as it is in the skies after the wind has swept them clean. Out of the north he comes in golden splendor; God comes in awesome majesty. Job 37:21-22 Holy Bible

I recently read an article where the author equated sunrise worship in nature with worshiping Baal or some other ancient deity.

I have to question whether the author is a city slicker.

It is with immense joy that I sit by the side of a stream in the early morning before sunrise. Just as the sun begins to rise a single bird with begin a beautiful song. So it is joined in by a chorus of other birds, frogs and crickets. I of course close my eyes and play what is in my heart as a morning love song to Jehovah. Oh what a wonderful sensation.

Afterwards He and I talk. It is a beautiful relationship.

Try sitting by the ocean or a lake and watch a sunrise or sunset and see if you do not feel an urge to have a heart to heart discussion with Jehovah.

Walk through a forest after a ice storm and see the icy crystals glistening and see if you do not marvel at Jehovah’s beauty.

Go for a walk through the forest during a light snowfall or walk through a meadow in the early morning drinking in the intoxicating fragrance of wildflowers and see if you do not feel close to Him and want to worship Him.

Indeed, didn’t David write His most beautiful Psalms while in the wilderness?

I say that: “The closer you are to nature the closer you are to God.” Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer:Thank you Jesus Pryyand (Jesus my friend) for the wonderful blessing of sharing such a special time with You in You majestic beautiful creation. May others be moved to worship You in this simple yet beautiful place of worship as well. I joyfully give thanks for this blessing and request this blessing in Your awesome name. Amen.

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

And Who is Their Lovers?

BURN LIKE THE SUN

For people will be lovers of self [narcissistic, self-focused], lovers of money [impelled by greed], boastful, arrogant, revilers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy and profane 2 Timothy 3:2 The Holy Bible, Amplified Version

Why do folks have to have the latest gadget? It is to show off their lovers. And who is their lovers? Why themselves of course. Why else do they “need” a name brand for which they pay exorbitant amounts of money for the name when a phone by another company is far less expensive will do the same thing?

Why do folks participate in charity runs or give to public displays to food banks? It is to show off their lovers. And who is their lovers? Why themselves of course. If they truly cared would they not donate a weekly portion of their salary to said causes?

Why do folks desecrate Jehovahs creation (which is us) by covering their bodies with tattoos which in my opinion makes them look like they belong in a freak show? It is to show off their lovers. And who is their lovers? Why themselves of course.

Self love is the root of all evil dispositions in mankind. Joseph a son of Jehovah

The list goes on and on.

These folks are shallow, self centered and insecure creatures.

“Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Philippians . 2:3 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

I care not what he thinks of me or what she thinks of me nor what they think of me. I care what Christ knows about me and that is that I am His. And that is all I need to know Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah-Bara (The Lord Creator) please bless me to be submissive unto Your Divine hand in molding me into the beautiful creation You intend for me to be. It is in Your eyes and Yours only that I desire to be a pleasing masterpiece. I sincerely request this in the name of He only only stayed focused on You when He walked this planet 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

Nothing Under the Sun can Satisfy, Except.

 

                                                               

He has made everything beautiful and appropriate in its time. He has also planted eternity [a sense of divine purpose] in the human heart [a mysterious longing which nothing under the sun can satisfy, except God]. Ecclesiastes 3:11 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

There is an unlimited daily treasure trove of experiences to witness Jehovahs glory all around us. These experiences are the best time to witness to others about the God of beauty and His infinite love for us using the beauty He is showing us at the time. It does not matter if we are young or old, what nationality or colour we are or those we are witnessing to.

As well, when we are in these places talking with others they are likely to relax and open up with you about their problems. Take time to listen and take notes (if they ask you why you are taking notes just explain to them that that is to reflect back on and each one can be discussed more in depth). Then help them get the help they need whether it is counselling or whether it is some other resource they need.

At the end of the talk ask them their name (if you have not already done so). When they ask why just explain to them that you are putting them on your prayer list and are going to pray for them every day.

Many times, from my experience they will meet you again and will be much more open to listening to you share the gospel.

Pray that Jehovah guides you to the place where He reveals His beauty and glory to someone that has a receptive heart ready to come unto Him (do not do this on your own initiative but upon His and you will have great success).

“God hath given to man a short time here upon earth, and yet upon this short time eternity depends.” — Jeremy Taylor

Prayer: Please Jehovah ‘Ori (the Lord is my Light) shine Your Divine light on the path You desire me to take to share Your love and beauty with others. In so doing may this be a inviting time to bring lost souls unto Your Holy family. I humbly request this in the name of my adorable Heavenly King Jesus Christ. Amen

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