Never Existed Before.

God  loveS populations,

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11 New International Version

Just think there is only one like you. You are an original. There was never anyone like you and never will be again.

So why do you try to fit in with the crowd?

I remember this really bad TV show that everyone was watching. When I asked my friends if they liked it, they confided in me that they thought the show was boring and crappy. When I asked them why they watched it their reply was always the same: because everybody else is.

Now God created you for a special purpose that only you can accomplish.

When you give your life over to Jesus that makes Him your king. As such the King has a special assignment just for you His servant.

To know what that is takes honest and sincere prayer.

He has always answered me in unusual ways. Sometimes it was with a small advertisement in a newspaper, sometimes it was a sermon, sometimes it was a talk with a friend.

When your calling is revealed it will sometimes be one that takes a leap of faith.

But know this, all calling are important or else Christ would not waste your time and His.

If your calling is to be a stay at home mother it is just as important as a missionary (stay at home mothers have a very important calling, molding the next generation of Jehovahs children).

If your calling is  to be a waitress or waiter the work you do is very important. Your attitude can change someones day and indeed their life.

“Every person born in this world represents something new, something that never existed before, something original and unique.”  Martin Buber

 

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Elohim (God our creator) for blessing me with a special assignment to bring glory and honour to Your cherished name and for the wonderful opportunity to bring someone into Your sanctified family. I praise you in the name of He whose precious blood made it all possible Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Rebelled Against the Command of the LORD.

COMPLETE DEDITACATION

“And the Lord said to me, ‘Tell them, “Do not go up nor fight, for I am not among you; lest you be defeated before your enemies.”  So I spoke to you; yet you would not listen, but rebelled against the command of the Lord, and presumptuously went up into the mountain. And the Amorites who dwelt in that mountain came out against you and chased you as bees do, and drove you back from Seir to Hormah.  Then you returned and wept before the Lord, but the Lord would not listen to your voice nor give ear to you. Deuteronomy 1:42-45 New King James Version

I remember one time when I was looking for a contract at the beginning of the tree planting season. I felt the Lord telling me to go south but I wanted to go north.

I stubbornly refused to obey His command and went north because I had an exhalent reputation there and thought getting a contract would be no problem. I could not beg, borrow or steal a contract.  I was homeless with no money and Jehovah was far from me.

Reluctantly I obeyed the Lord and went south where he wanted me to go in the first place.

The result was the best contract received in thirteen years of planting.

So many times we either think we know more than Jehovah or just stubbornly refuse to have faith in His guidance.

The ultimate result is disaster.

Sometimes when we cry out the Lord refuses to listen to us to teach us the hard way to listen and obey or pay a very high price.

Prayer: Please forgive this sometimes stubborn and obstinate child of Yours my believe Jehovah Yehew (God of His people) for refusing to obey Your wise commands in my life. Even now my love after all these years of experience I can still be stiff necked. Thank you my endearing One for forgiving me and pressing down on me until I relent and become Your cherished obedient child again. I pray this in the name of He who never gave up His sometimes dense disciples Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

With Him is Full Redemption.

trust in God

Put your hope in the Lord, for with the Lord is unfailing love and with him is full redemption. Psalm 130:7 New International Version

Redemption: the act of saving people from sin and evil : the fact of being saved from sin or evil Merriam-Webster Dictionary

Do you foolishly waste your money buying lottery tickets hoping to win. Those who do win do not have their lives changed for the better. Their problems are still there and most of the time their problems get worse with people trying to con them out of their money.

Do you hope getting married will change your life for the better? Doing that only leads to more problems and most times divorce.

Do you hope if you get that promotion or a better job it will end your money problems? If you cannot handle what you have now, what makes you believe you can handle more money (now in our sick society where the rich do indeed unjustly get richer while the rest of us suffer by getting poorer we can use more money)?

Do you hope getting that house will make your life better? Then you become a house slave making the mortgage payments, making repairs, cannot go on vacations because you cannot leave the house unattended.

 

Now when you put your hope in Jehovah that is the surest thing you can do with your life. When you completely surrender whatever slave to sin you are chained to, to Jehovah He will smash those chains and you will be eternally grateful to Him.

I know,

He smashed the chains of an addiction that were making my life a living hell while dragging me into the eternal one.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Yeshua (God our rescuer) for rescuing me from the chains that were making my life a living Hell while dragging me down into a permanent one. I praise You the name of He who rescued that man from legions Jesus Christ. Amen

Who Does Not Change?

trust in God

Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows. James 1:17 New International Version

Jehovah does not change like a politician looking for votes.

How many of them change once in office?                                                               .

Jehovah does not change like peoples loyalty that can change with the wind.

How many slap you on the back today and put a knife in your back tomorrow?.

Jehovah does not change just to be popular or politically correct like politicians, movie stars, TV stars or music stars.

How many of them take their stands because they believe in what they are doing is right for society compared to how many of them are doing it to be seen on a pedestal?

He is the same as he was yesterday, as He is today and as He will be tomorrow. He gives His gifts because He loves us.

Now that is solid ground that I want to stand on and depend upon.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Heseh (God of love) for Your unending, unchanging love that blesses me each and every day. It is my most cherished treasure. It is with deepest gratitude that I thank You in the name whose love for me took Him all the way to the cross Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

It Only Causes Harm

God  loveS populations,

Cease from anger, and forsake wrath; Do not fret it only causes harm. Psalm 37:8New King James Version

Holding onto anger affects your loving relationships. It can cause you to lash out at the innocent ones, especially those you love and end up destroying relationships.

How many siblings are there that do not even talk with each other any more because of anger?

 

Holding onto anger adversely affects your health and only sends you to an early grave.

I have seen many who are my age yet their health is shot and they look thirty years older than they are.

I have seen many go to their graves angry, bitter and lonely.

If your heart is filled with anger, how can you love others, including Christ?

If you cannot love others, how can others love you?

What a sad waste of life.

Do not hold onto anger. It hurts you more than the one you are angry with and many times brings them great delight to watch you suffer. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Now many times the cut is too deep for you to heal yourself. That is when you need good Christian councilors and to pray reverently. It may take years to heal.

It once took me five years to heal from a deep painful wound unfairly inflicted upon me by someone in the family. It was only through Christian counseling that I learned how to handle it.

Prayer:  Please Jehovah Heseh (God our healer) to any and all who are injured by life’s vicious bows to good solid Christian councilors who can and will heal them through Your divine grace. I humbly beseech You in the name of He whose love heals all wounds Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

They Are New Every Morning.

A gathering of sunshine flowers in Canton

Through the Lord’s mercies we are not consumed, Because His compassions fail not.  They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness.” The Lord is my portion,” says my soul, Therefore I hope in Him!” Lamentations 3:22-24 New King James Version

The great thing about Jehovah is when we repent, He readily forgives us.

No matter how bad of a day we had when we go to bed and confess our short comings and ask for forgiveness when we wake up and ask for His divine guidance throughout the coming day He abundantly supplies.

We need not carry yesterdays muck ups with us the next day.

Now we will have to make amends to those we mucked up the previous day but Jehovah will bless us with the means and the strength to carry it through.

It has amazed me the way He accomplished this so many times in my life.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Chanan (God is gracious) for blessing me with Your divine grace of forgiveness when I repent of my sins. I praise You in the name of He whose blood made such a marvelous gift possible Jesus Christ. Amen.

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