It is Not My Job

christ, will lead To It is not my job to change anyone’s mind.

It is my duty (which is an act of love) to be obedient and do as the Holy Spirit directs me to do in service to my Heavenly King, Jesus.

When feeling rejected or bitter, I am to stay focused on Jesus’ satisfaction and rewards not mans. I obey King Jesus and leave the results to Him.

It then becomes obvious that Jehovah, Jesus, the Holy Spirit and I have a deep loving relationship. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever) Ps10:16 for blessing me with the honour of serving such an awesome King as You and depending upon You and You alone for praise. It is in Your magnificent name I pray amen.

May you be blessed with abundant joy in your heart filled with love and your life overflowing with laughter every day this year.

It is Rare to See

  PRAISE WITH TIMBEREL

It is rare to see a humble young man or a contented old one. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Maturity is the solidifying of character of respect, integrity, patience, and compassion. It is the constant growing ever closer with Christ not the advancement of age. I have met many immature older adults. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Watch out that no poisonous root of bitterness grows up to trouble you, corrupting many. Hebrews 12:15 Holy Bible New Living Translation

I have found more whose heart is full of the poison of bitterness in their old age than the sweet fragrance of gratefulness to Jehovah for all the blessings He has bestowed upon them. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer:Poppa, please bless me to be grateful and content with Your gracious abundant daily blessings You lovingly bless me with. Help me to be appreciative for the most precious eternal blessing You have given me, my loving best friend Jesus. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Wishing you a house full of sunshine, hearts full of cheer and love that grows deeper each day of the year. Welsh blessing

It Has Robbed Them Of

GUARD YOUR INPUT

Watch out that no poisonous root of bitterness grows up to trouble you, corrupting many. Hebrews 12:15 New Living Translation Bible

I have seen hatred and bitterness age many before their time. It has robbed them of the joy of life, it has robbed them of peace of mind. It has robbed them of contentment in life. It seems to me that bitterness is one of the biggest thief of all, yet so many worship it in their daily lives.

Bitterness always starts out small like a peppermint seed, yet if you allow it to take root it slowly chokes out all the vegetation around it.

I know some folks that have held grudge over small insignificant acts for over sixty years. It has spread to every aspect of their once vibrant life so bad that if they ever smiled it would crack their face. It is very pitiful to see. Many times the ones they are bitter towards are either dead or have moved away and know nothing of the hatred towards them. Many of the folks were big and strong but this vile disease has sucked the vitality out of their bodies as well as their minds and spirits. Now they are empty, pitiful, angry folks that have allowed this disease to destroy their lives. “

We cannot live with bitterness because it will first manifest itself in our spirit, then in our emotions, and finally in our bodies.” — Tom Drout

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rapha (God my healer) for generously applying Your Divine healing balm which purged the vileness of bitterness from my heart. I adore You in the name of He who was and is the greatest healer of them all, Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Labour to Grow Better

CHRISTIAN SCARS

 “Indeed, I have refined you, but not as silver; I have tested and chosen you in the furnace of affliction. Isaiah 48:10 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

He loves you too much to allow it to grow.

That is why Jehovah refines us in the furnace of affliction. When there are (and there always is) ungodly behavior, belief or dispositions in a Christians life.

Jehovah first bring it to His child’s attention and inform them of the way to correct this disease.

When the child stubbornly refuse to obey our Heavenly Father, then He brings afflictions to them to encourage them to reform their ways.

The longer the child refuses the Fathers disciple, the stronger the discipline becomes until it crushes the disobedience in the child. It is not pleasant but it is what is best for us in the walk to Heaven.

I have been through it and every Christian will go through it as well. Sometimes we learn quick, sometimes (like me) we learn slow so we endure a lot of afflictions until the lesson of obedience is learned in every aspect of our life.

“Labour to grow better under all your afflictions, lest your afflictions grow worse, lest God mingle them with more darkness, bitterness and terror.” — John Owen

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Bara (The Lord Creator) for patiently creating this child of Yours into a obedient, loving child through many afflictions when I was a stubborn and obstinate child. I pray I never have to hurt Your precious heart by forcing You to discipline me in such a manner every again because I love You so much. I exalt You in the name of He who disciplines those He loves so dearly 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

The Godly Are Bettered By

WE ARE PURIFIED

Through Him we also have access by faith into this [remarkable state of] grace in which we [firmly and safely and securely] stand. Let us rejoice in our hope and the confident assurance of [experiencing and enjoying] the glory of [our great] God [the manifestation of His excellence and power]. And not only this, but [with joy] let us exult in our sufferings and rejoice in our hardships, knowing that hardship (distress, pressure, trouble) produces patient endurance; and endurance, proven character (spiritual maturity); and proven character, hope and confident assurance [of eternal salvation]. Romans 5:2-4 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

It is in the hard times we learn the most and mature the most as we are guided by the Holy Spirit. We do not become bitter and self pitying like those in the world. Rather, we rejoice in them afterwards because we can see Jehovahs strong, secure hand leading us through them.

It is in our sufferings that Jehovah reveals the most of His love and healing which draws us ever closer to Him which is the only way for that to occur. We do not pout and play the blame game like those in the world because we understand that it occurred for our betterment.

Each of these brings stronger confidence in our loving Heavenly Fathers providence in every part of our lives. Because we are His children we always have access to Him and He is never too busy for us but takes an active role in our lives.

For these blessings we should continually praise Him and rejoice over Him continually every day.

When we know that the angel of death shall come a calling (and I believe that Jehovah always alerts us that our time will soon be up, even though we do not know the hour or the day. This is because of what has been witnessed in the palliative care in hospitals and volunteering in seniors homes) Jehovah shall cause us to reflect back on our walk with Him and blesses us with assurance of the Heavenly home that is awaiting us.

As the wicked are hurt by the best things, so the godly are bettered by the worst.” — William Jenkyn

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Uzam (The Lord is our Strength in Trouble) for strengthening me, comforting me and encouraging me through lo the many trials, tribulations and sorrows that have come my way in my walk with You. I would never had made it without You gentle strong hand supporting me. I praise You in the name of He who strengthened the weak as He walked amongst us 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 That I am Eternally Grateful

NEVER ENDING LOVE AFFAIR

My whole being follows hard after You and clings closely to You; Your right hand upholds me. Psalm 63:8 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

In my younger days I dreamt of living in a log cabin on land purchased. Through circumstances out of my control, it was taken away from me. At the time there was a lot of anger and bitterness because of it. However, today there is deep gratitude because if life was spent in that log cabin Jehovah would not have been able to accomplish numerous amazing thing in me and through me. These experiences drew me ever closer to Him. For that I am eternally grateful.

At one time there was a nice size nest egg being built up for retirement. Through circumstances out of my control the nest egg was crushed and destroyed. At the time I was bitter and angry. Now there is deep gratitude because that needed to occur in order for my Beloved Heavenly Father to teach me to depend upon Him alone. For that I am eternally grateful.

I have learned to cling close to Him in a loving relationship like no other can begin to match. For that I am eternally grateful.

God takes away the world, that the heart may cleave more to Him in sincerity.” — Thomas Watson

Prayer:Thank you Jehovah THEOPHILUS (friend of God) for blessing me with purging me of all desire for worldly things all of which cannot compare to the most awesome friendship there could ever possibly be, that with You, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. It is my most treasured gift that I am eternally grateful for. I thank you in the name of my best friend Jesus Christ. Amen

May Gods sunshine always bless you with brightening your day with His love, joy and peace. Joseph a son of Jehovah

On the Alter Of

And do not give the devil an opportunity [to lead you into sin by holding a grudge, or nurturing anger, or harboring resentment, or cultivating bitterness]Ephesians 4:27 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Unfortunately, one of my bad dispositions is letting go of a grudge. Being more mature I have learned to place it at the feet of Jesus. He heals the wound and avenges the wrong doer.

Many times however, it is played out in my head where they are shamed while yours truly look like the hero. This childish fantasy is surely played out in all of our heads. Rather than dwell on the wound others have inflicted from personal experience, it is better to listen to old hymns that praise Jehovah. This fills the heart with joy rather than anger and bitterness.

Now of course the wound may need to be healed by going to righteous Christian councilors to help deal with the lingering pain.

Those that nurture the grudge are cultivating weeds of hate and anger which suffocate the beautiful plants of love and joy. They become mean, bitter angry old men and women in their later years.

Of course this devastating disease cause great harm to both the mental and physical body.

It also affects the relationship with Christ. Because He is love and there is hate and anger in the heart the two are not comparable.

I have seen more than a few who have sacrificed their physical and mental health on the alter of bitterness and grudges. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: PleaseYAHWEH-Ropheka (God our healer) heal the cuts both superficial and the gougingly deep ones that have been inflicted upon me.

Please empower me to concentrate on all Your loving attributes instead of foolishly wasting my time rerunning the event over in my head where I glorify myself while shaming the offender. That is such a wast of time and is very childish.

I sincerely request this in the name of He who heals all wounds Jesus Christ. Amen

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