Carries Us to the Sea Of

following chtists example

 But the fruit of the Spirit [the result of His presence within us] is love [unselfish concern for others], joy, [inner] peace, patience [not the ability to wait, but how we act while waiting], kindness, goodness, faithfulness Galatians 5:22 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

We emulate the one we love and idolize.

As Christians that means we are to transform ourselves to behave as our best friend Jesus showed by His example while here on earth. We are to be led by the Holy Spirit where He has specific plans prepared for us. It is difficult at first (speaking from first hand knowledge) but becomes as natural as breathing the more we are obedient unto His direction. Now take this to heart and never forget it. Even though the ones we are gracious to may be ungrateful (which from experience they are) there are those who are watching that it will have a profound effect on.

One time when in China I used to give food instead of money to beggars (for which the vast majority was very angry for). After about a month I noticed many of the folks around that area were giving food to the beggars instead of nothing. This was a curious behavior because the beggars are usually ignored. Then the Lord brought enlightenment to me that they were emulating my actions. Wow.

And, remember this: “There is no small act of kindness that is not great in Heaven.” Joseph a son of Jehovah

“The stream of spontaneous acts of Godly kindness carries us to the sea of contentment and peace.” — Constance Hurst-Howard

One thing to remember as well as that there are certain area’s we are not to go to because they are unworthy and nothing good will come of our actions. Yes there were some area’s Jesus refused to preform any miracles in because of their unbelief so it would have been a waste of time. That is why it is imperative to depend upon the Holy Spirits guidance. He knows where to best invest your time, efforts and finances.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Shalom (The Lord blesses with Peace) for blessing me with joy in my heart and peace in my mind when I obey Your guidance to preform spontaneous acts of kindness to others. May it be a floodlight for others to see Your astounding love. I thank You in the name of He who preformed the most incredible acts of kindness during His earthly ministry Jesus Christ. Amen

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

God is in Your Midst  

GOD IS WITH US

This past week mom (I am a unpaid live in care giver for my mom. If I am not here she will be put into a seniors home) has been constantly taunting me that this is HER house and she does not need me. She can throw me out at her slightest whim.   I know my Lord desires me to remain here but it really gets me down.         

 These verses and quotes stuck out to me this morning while reading morning devotionals.              

For I know the plans and thoughts that I have for you,’ says the Lord, ‘plans for peace and well-being and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. Jeremiah 29:11    The Holy Bible Amplified Version                                    

 “I will never [under any circumstances] desert you [nor give you up nor leave you without support, nor will I in any degree leave you helpless], nor will I forsake or let you down or relax My hold on you [assuredly not]!”  Hebrews 13:5 The Holy Bible Amplified Version                         

   I don’t know what  tomorrow brings;  But I know who knows, and I know He holds my hand who holds tomorrow in His other hand. Joseph a son of Jehovah                                                                                  

   Is anything too difficult or too wonderful for the Lord? Genesis 18:14  The Holy Bible Amplified Version             

   “What seems too difficult for us is a sure sign that it belongs to God.” — Marie DePree                                                                  

 “The Lord your God is in your midst, A Warrior who saves. He will rejoice over you with joy; He will be quiet in His love [making no mention of your past sins], He will rejoice over you with shouts of joy. Zephaniah 3:17 The Holy Bible Amplified Version                                             

About an hour afterwards as laying in bed my heart started tingling like a mild electric current was stimulating it.  Then there was a tingling in my mouth (no not like the current was running from my heart to my mouth but each was separate). I could not stop singing Glllllory, gloorrry , glorrry in excelsis.        

Next my right finger after the thumb tingled and was outstretched towards Heaven. This continued for an hour.                                                                     

 Wow, what an experience.                                                                      

   Do you think my Heavenly Love was trying to tell me something?  

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) for blessing me with your reassurance that no matter what comes my way whether good or bad You are always right here with me. You are indeed all I need in life and You are my life. I exalt You in the name of my best friend who continuously walks beside me Jesus Christ. Amen May

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

Did They Not Have Every Right To

trust in God

 Jesus said to them, “Why are you afraid? Do you still have no faith and confidence [in Me]?” Mark 4:40 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

The boat was sinking during a terrible storm. The disciples, who were experienced fishermen believed they were going to die. Did they not have every right to be concerned?

No, they did not.

When Jesus asked the disciples do you still, this implies that they had plenty of experience with Jesus during disasters.

Have they not learned their lessons yet?

Before you are harsh on them, reflect back on your own life. When you were a baby Christian with little experience, you were expected to have little faith and trust, however, as you mature in your walk with Christ your faith is expected to become stronger.

For me, whenever disaster comes my way the initial reaction is panic. It is quickly followed by crying out unto Jehovah. Then their is reflection upon His past deliverance and a thankful prayer saying with confidence I know it is in Your hands Father and I know You will help me. Thank You.

Then their is calm reassurance during the wicked storms.

We are expected to call out unto Jehovah but we are also expected to have trust in His deliverance. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Shammah ( The Lord is Present) for always being present in my life.

Please expand my trust in You in every trial and tribulation You are right there walking through them with me.

Please remind me of Your past deliverance to reassure me of Your present one.

I praise You and sincerely request this in the name of He who always walked and continuously walks with You now my glorious best friend Jesus Christ. Amen

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

My Greatest Gift Ever.

                                          

 When I was a boy my grandma would give me a sweater every year for Christmas. Upon opening it there is disappointment, I wanted a toy. After putting it on however, I refused to take it off. Mom would have to fight with me almost every day because I always wanted to wear it. There was just something special about it that made it inseparable. What was unknown to me in my childhood innocence was that grandma would work on knitting that sweater every day for a month or two and what made it so special was the love she put into creating it. When the sweater was worn the love could be felt in it. It was the best gift ever to this child.

It pales in comparison  however to the greatest gift that is given to everyone free of charge. That gifts name is Jesus.

Jehovah loved us so much He allowed His most loved son to lower Himself to our level just so He would teach us about Jehovah and how to nurture a loving obedient relationship with Him. That was my greatest gift ever given to me by the most loving Father. I thank Him ever so deeply for this cherished gift ever day.

Jehovah loved us so much that even though it ripped His tender heart apart He allowed His beloved son to suffer and die for our sins so that we have the opportunity to become His children. That was my greatest gift ever given to me by my best friend Jesus Christ.

I thank Him ever so deeply for this cherished gift ever day. Jesus loved us so much He left His perfect loving home in Heaven to lower Himself to our level to teach us about our Beloved Father in Heaven. He loved us so much He suffered the most horrible death just so we have the most wonderful gift of all, becoming a child of Jehovah. That was my greatest gift ever given to me by my Savior Jesus Christ. I thank Him ever so deeply for this cherished gift ever day.

“For God so [greatly] loved and dearly prized the world, that He [even] gave His[One and] only begotten Son, so that whoever believes and trusts in Him [as Savior] shall not perish, but have eternal life. John 3:16 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Children, this gift is available free to all who are willing to accept it. When you do, you enter into the most fabulous loving relationship there ever was, is and will be.

If you are a child of His, be respectful and thank your Heavenly Father Jehovah and your best friend and Savior Jesus Christ for this most treasured gift every day.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah for blessing me with allowing Your precious Son to become Jesus Christ Go’el (The Lord is my Redeemer) and thank you Jesus for willingly committing Your selfless act of becoming my Holy Redeemer. I praise You in You amazing name. Amen.

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

Why do You do It?

GODS LOVE

For the love of Christ compels us. 2 Corinthians 5:14 New King James Version

 

Why do you do it?

Why to you sacrificially give, sometimes even when it hurts?

It is because Jesus loved us first and because He is our idol we desire to follow in His footsteps.

 

Why do you continue on your walk with Christ, even when you are mocked and criticized (the worst usually comes from the family)?

Because once you have been blessed with a taste of Christs love for you, you know there is nothing to satisfy your spirit like walking in communion with our cherished best friend.

Why do you cease going down the highway to Hell (selfishness) even when those around you mock and criticize you?

Because just as a man is no longer interested in childish things (well we hope not eh?) neither does the desires of the world interest when Christ has filled our hearts with His never ending life giving waters.

 

Love is an action, not an emotion. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Pryyand (Jesus my best friend) for the wonderful blessing of Your awesome life giving love. Please bless this Your humble servant to exhibit love unto others in my cherished service unto You so as to encourage them to desire to join Your holy family. I meekly request this in Your magnificent loving name. Amen

 

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