You Won’t Understand

TAKING IT TO OTHERS

Often people say to me “You just won’t understand.”
“You’re way too old,” or “Way too young,” or “YOU are NOT a man.”
I don’t know why some people feel they suffer unique pain.
As if they are the only ones who’ve lost or ceased to gain.
I don’t know why they hide their pain and clutch it ever tighter.
It seems to me that all should know – a burden shared gets lighter.
Why some folks even deign to think the pain that’s in their heart,
Is all their own, to keep and hoard, they set themselves apart. They keep their eyes from meeting mine lest I should see their hurt.
And even if we stop and speak their words are often curt.
The Bible says: ‘Two’ can withstand what overcomes just ‘one’.
And also that – a ‘Cord of Three’ can scarcely be undone.

Besides, I know the ways of hurt – my heart’s been crushed before.
Friends have betrayed – I’ve lost at love, Despair’s knocked at my door.
And I Remember – thoughts gone wild – and crying late at night.
Not having strength to care at all – much less the strength to fight.
But, someone special came to me – and when my trials were told. I realized that with their tears – they’d eased my heavy load. And so, I learned – that Pain – like Love – is bearable if shared. I don’t know what I would have done without that friend who cared.

My trials did not vanish fast – in fact the time was long. But sharing gave me breathing space until I could grow strong Enough to laugh again and even start to smile – And though it seemed it could not help – It eased my pain awhile. So, if you think that you can’t share cause I won’t understand. At least just give me half a chance to lend a helping hand. For I know that you’re hurting and I know a place to start. Perhaps if you could realize – your pain burns in my heart.

I know I cannot make your trials and troubles go away. But maybe I can help a bit to get you through today. And maybe by tomorrow you won’t need help anymore. But if you should – Don’t be ashamed – for that’s what friends are for.

And after all is said and done – the trials ceased – you’re whole. Perhaps you’ll know just what to do to help another soul – Who’s being crushed by hurt and pain – be it woman or a man. And you won’t have to hear them say, “You just won’t understand.”

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Uzam (The Lord is our Strength in Trouble)  Isiah 49:26  for walking with me through lo my many trials and tribulations, sorrows and snares. Please bless me with the opportunity to walk along side someone this day as they are walking through their dark valley just as You walked with me through my many dark and terrible valleys. I humbly request this in the name of He who walked through the valley of the shadow of death for me Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Calls Out to Us

FOLLOW JESUS

Jesus went up on a mountain and called out the ones he wanted to go with him. And they came to him. Mark 3:13 The Holy Bible, New Living Testament

The other day I heard a couple calling out for their beloved little dog. They walked the whole neighborhood looking for it- I do not know if the found it.

Jehovah spoke to me about how He calls out to us when we are lost.

The difference is that the owners of the dog did not know where it was and exhaustively looked for it. Jehovah knows where we are and calls out to us to bring us into His or back into His family if we have strayed.

Some stubbornly refuse to heed the call to their own peril both in this life and in their eternal one.

Jesus is calling, are you prepared to answer the call? Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Pyyrand (Jesus my best friend) for blessing me with calling out to me. It has blessed me with the most awesome friendship there could ever be. I exalt You in Your most fantastic name. Amen

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

I was Convicted

delightful panoramic water dance

May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing to you, O Lord, my rock and my redeemer. Psalm 19:14 The Holy Bible, New Living Testament

Recently I was convicted while reading a morning devotional. The Holy Spirit convicted me that the words of my mouth did not match the meditation of my heart. Someone was terribly abusive to me and I said some very unchristian words in anger and frustration (the abuser did not care that her actions caused me great physical pain).

I promptly repented and even though she is still abusive my meditations with my Beloved are in love again.

It does not matter how much anyone is physically and or mentally abusive to me. All that matters is my loving obedient relationship with my Heavenly Beloved. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah Heseh (God is love) bless me to always keep my focus on our loving relationship no matter how abusive those around me are. It is the anchor that hows me close to You in those horrible storms. I humbly request this in the name of He who calmed the violent storm on the seas for His disciples Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Who Would You go To

HE GIVES ABUNDANTLY

This High Priest of ours understands our weaknesses, for he faced all of the same testings we do, yet he did not sin. Hebrews 4:15 The Holy Bible New Living Translation 

There is not one experience you are going through that Jesus has not been there, experienced that.

That is why Jesus is the BEST Guidance Councilor there is.

After all, who better to talk with about a problem than someone who has already walked that mile. As well, Jesus loves you, Jesus cares about You. Jesus only wants what is best for you. Who would you go to with a problem but someone like that.

I trust and obey Jesus’ guidance more than I do any man or womans. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Tsidkenu (The Lord is Righteousness) I Cor 1:30 for blessing me with Divine guidance in every aspect of my life. I praise You in the name of the best Guidance Councillor there is 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.

Here is The

GODS HELP

 

For God is working in you, giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases him. Philippians 2:13 The Holy Bible New Living Translation

Here is the meaning of life

. Jehovah places a desire within you to serve Him in a specific manner. He sends the best Guidance Councillor there is to help us, The Holy Spirit. This is not just for teenagers but for everyone at every stage of life.

From a lot of personal experience I can tell you that it is going to be difficult, sometimes impossible to obey.

That is good because it teaches you to depend upon Him for the resources necessary to accomplish the task.

It is going to be painful but that is good because it helps you depend upon Him for the strength necessary to succeed at the task. Then end result of course is it draws you ever closer to Him in a loving obedient relationship.

Jesus is the only one that blesses me with meaning in life, both here and now and in eternity in our Heavenly home. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Rohi ( Jesus is our Divine Shepherd ) Psalm 23 for providing me with meaning in my life through Your Divine leading. I exalt You in Your glorious name. Amen

May you be blessed with peace and joy every day.

This is Why.

BURN LIKE THE SUN

 But God shows his anger from heaven against all sinful, wicked people who suppress the truth by their wickedness.[ They know the truth about God because he has made it obvious to them. For ever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky. Through everything God made, they can clearly see his invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse for not knowing God. Romans 1:18-20 The Holy Bible New Living Translation

This is why the world is so bent on teaching the lie of evolution. Because, otherwise they would have to admit there is a Supreme God who created everything. To admit that, they would have to worship Him.

Can any man or woman show me one species that has evolved into another in the last four hundred years? If it has not happened in that amount of time why would it happen before then?

It was funny when I was a tree planter and the young men and women who laughed at me for being a Christian would one day stop planting and have a dazed look on their faces. I knew Jehovah was revealing Himself to them through nature. I would yell over at them: “Hey, tell me again how there is no God.” They looked at me shocked. Later we talked about their experience and they confessed that only a Creator God could have created this world after what they saw. Most, however rejected what was revealed to them later on . That was sad but I knew to confess Jesus would mean they would have to confess their lifestyle of booze, sex and drug was wrong. That would mean they would have to change their lifestyle. Rather than reject a sinful lifestyle, they rejected Jesus.

Oh so very sad.

You can deny reality all you want but Jehovah is still there no matter how much you ignore or deny Him. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Shammah ( The Lord is Present) – Hebrews 13:5 with blessing me with Your gracious presence in my life. It is such and honour and privilege. I praise You in the name of He who is also always with me Jesus Christ. Amen

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

There is No Longer Any

FURNACE OF HELL

Dear friends, if we deliberately continue sinning after we have received knowledge of the truth, there is no longer any sacrifice that will cover these sins. There is only the terrible expectation of God’s judgment Hebrews 10: 26-27 The Holy Bible New Living Translation

Here it is, in black and white.

There are those that are either gullible or down right liars when they preach that when we accept Christ as our Savior we can live how ever we desire without any consequences. That is a big lie that only leads to Hell.

The thing to notice is these are deliberate sins which indicates that we know they are wrong yet continue to enjoy participating in them. It covers a whole range of issues such as gossiping, homosexuality, stealing, getting drunk (or stoned) and many other issues.

Now we all have weaknesses that are too strong for us to handle. That is why they must be laid at the feet of Christ.

BUT, once freed from them if you willingly go back to them you are no different than from those outside of Christs family. Once Christ frees us, only a fool returns to the Hell that He freed them from. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer : Thank you Jehovah Go’el (The Lord is my Redeemer) – Is. 49:26, 60:16 for paying a very high sacrifice to free me from my filthy sins.                                                                     Please send the Holy Spirit to convict me when I begin to stray because our loving relationship is the greatest treasure You have blessed me with and I do not want to destroy it by works of the flesh. In Your beautiful name I exalt You and beseech You. 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
