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

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

For All I Have not Seen.

                                                  

Trust in and rely confidently on the Lord with all your heart And do not rely on your own insight or understanding. Proverbs 3:5 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Have you ever laid out under the sky at night and looked at the stars? Have you ever tried to count them? When a child it was a summer ritual with us country kids. It is impossible for us to imagine nor understand how He did it. We feel very small and insignificant but then Jehovah speaks to us and says :”Yes I made all these stars and am awesome but my love for you is even larger than these galaxies.” How can you not trust a God like that?

Have you ever smelled and caressed a flower in the early morning dew? Its whole essence fills you with a sensation equal with being mildly intoxicated. We are in awe at His amazing creation and cannot imagine nor understand how He knew to make such beautiful creations. Have you ever wondered how a God like that cannot have such a loving heart for His cherished children? How can you not love a God like that with your life?

Have you ever watched a sunrise and or sunset over a body of water like the ocean and been completely memorized by it with time standing still. Have you ever wondered how Jehovah can set the sun at just the right angle to create such and intently amazing scene? It is beyond our knowledge or imagination how He did it. How can you not trust a God like that with your life?

When I was a tree planter in the mountains in Canada every year the atheist kids from the city would laugh at me for worshiping a make believe God. Then one day when they were planting they would look up and Jehovah would reveal His Divine beauty in nature before them. They stood still like a statute and were bedazzled by it all. They could no longer laugh at a make believe God because they has met Him in His creation.

“All I have seen teaches me to trust the Creator for all I have not seen.” Emerson

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Bara (The Lord Creator) for blessing me with Your revealing Your awesome love, majesty and incredible intelligence through Your creation. Thank you for using these experiences to bless me with the Divine opportunity to get oh so very close with You during these momentous events. I exalt Thee in the name of He who was there helping create these amazing creation 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

He was Disgusting to Society

But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not look at his appearance or at the height of his stature, because I have rejected him. For the Lord sees not as man sees; for man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.” 1 Samuel 16:7 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Being a shepherd in Davids time he was disgusting to them. Shepherds were dirty, smelly and uncouth. But, Jehovah saw what was in his heart.

The same is true in us. You do not need to be a supermodel, wear all the latest designer clothes, attend a premier college or university or have a fat wallet to be used by Jehovah. It is your heart He is looking for.

When I was young I was poor, very shy and constantly sick. Those that knew me then would never have believed the manner in which Christ used me and the incredible transformation He has accomplished in me.

The same is true for everyone, including you.

It does not matter your appearance, your social graces, your intelligence or any other factor in your life. When your heart is receptive unto Christ He joyously embraces you into His Divine family.

The only requirement to be of service unto Christ our King is an obedient, receptive heart. Give Him that and watch the amazing things He does in your life and through your life. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Do not reject the worst sinners like drunks or drug addicts as unworthy to become Jehovahs children because it is the worst sinners who make the best saints. This is because they appreciate the Hell the Holy Spirit has delivered them from.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah M’Kaddesh (The Lord is my Sanctifier) for blessing me with sanctifying a wicked sinner like me into Your Holy family.

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

The Best Cathedral I Have Attended

 And the glory and majesty and splendor of the Lord will be revealed Isaiah 40:5 Holy Bible Amplified Version

The best cathedral I have attended was Jehovahs.

To the world it is called nature but to the Christian it is called “Gods Cathedral”.

The reason for this is because it is in nature that Jehovah reveals the most of His splendor, majesty, glory and awesome beauty. That is the reason “I come to the garden” is so relevant to me. Because, when I am in nature that is when I am the closest unto my Heavenly Beloved like the song says. It does not matter if it is on the shore of a lake or ocean, walking through the forest or a meadow.

The sights and fragrances peel back an amazing creator who loves me and desires to have me come to His cathedral to share a conversation together with me. It may be to comfort and encourage me, it may be to offer words of guidance to me or it may be just to share time together in Holy Communion of love.

The melody of the birds and crickets choir sings of His love, indeed many times I join in with my flute playing a love song for my cherished one in Heaven. It is relaxing yet deeply intimate. Here we share close camaraderie that is available no where else.

“We live in a world starved for solitude, silence, and privacy: and therefore starved for meditation and true friendship.” C.S. Lewis

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Bara (The Lord Creator) for blessing me with sharing not only the beauty of Thy creation but the amazing privileged of spending loving communion with You in You magnificent creation. I exalt You in the name of He who I long to walk through Heavens garden with Jesus Christ my best friend. Amen.

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

All Men have Seen.

jehovahs-beauty

 All men have seen God’s work Job 36:25 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Whenever anyone of these so called atheists challenge me to prove there is a God I humbly ask them to spend a day with me.

We will spend it in Gods Cathedral ( nature ).

This can be by a quiet little stream ,in the forest , in a meadow, by the shores of a lake or ocean.

I ask them to close their eyes and take a deep breath. After a few of these they are asked to slowly open their eyes. Then Jehovah reveals Himself to them through the serenade of the wild birds, the singing of the waves as they caress the shore, the beautiful gentle dance of wildflowers in the meadow or the hypnotic soft sway of trees as they preform natures ballet just like the wild flowers do, or look at the clouds as they dance across the sky.

They will drink in the intoxicating fragrance of the wildflowers or the musky scent from the forest. They feel the tender warmth of the sun as it wraps itself around them like a comforting warm blanket on a cold day.

They feel the delicate breeze softly caress them.

In the end they are at one with Jehovah being relaxed and at peace with themselves and the world.

The closer you get to nature, the closer you get to Jehovah. Joseph- Anthony; Green.

The question then is asked if they have experienced Jehovah now. Most will look at me with an expression of awe and wonderment like little children. Later of course the majority will deny this and flippantly mock it saying it was just nature that created this experience not a fairy tale creation in the sky.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Bara (The Lord Creator) for blessing me with opening my eyes to all the awesome wonders that You have lovingly created that exists all around me every moment of every day. Please bless me with the wisdom to reveal this to those who are walking blindly of Your majesty. I exalt Thee in the name of He who was there with You in the begging of this incredible creation Jesus Christ. Amen.

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