The Only Thing We Can Give

But who am I, and who are my people, that we could give anything to you? Everything we have has come from you, and we give you only what you first gave us! 1 Chronicles 29:14 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Jesus came to us, not the other way around. He blessed us with His love.

The greatest possession we are ever blessed with is a loving relationship with Jesus. Joseph a son of Jehovah

The only thing we can give Jesus worth any value is our love in return.             

Yes, we give Him our personal love but we are also to share His love with the world and by the Holy Spirits guidance bring as many of the lost sheep into Christs flock as He guides us to.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Heseh (God is love 1 John 4:16 ) for blessing me with the most precious of treasures, You Divine love.          Please bless me with plenty of opportunities to share it with others in a manner in which they will desire to become Your cherished children as well.  I humbly ask this in the name of my most special big brother Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Believe It or Not There Are

 If we claim we have no sin, we are only fooling ourselves and not living in the truth. 1 John 1:8 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Believe it or not there are folks that live as if they believe they are sinless.

Whenever the do something wrong they quickly make up excuses for why A: that it not what really happened,

B: it was not their fault or

C: it is okay because everyone else is doing it.

Trying to convince them of their wrong doing is exhaustive.

I have found the best last response to these lies is :

“You may lie to me and if you repeat the lie enough, even convince yourself, but you cannot con Jesus.” Joseph a son of Jehovah

and then walk away.

It shocks even the so called “unbelievers”.

Many times we commit sins without even knowing it. That is why we need to be sensitive to the Holy Spirits guidance and quickly repent of the sin before its roots grow too deep. Then, it is a real battle to conquer them. With the help of the Holy Spirit this can be accomplished.

Pull out your sins when they first occur to prevent them from taking root unless you want a real battle on your hands. Joseph a son of Jehovah

The beautiful thing is though, that when we repent ( which means we are to admit what we did, admit it was wrong, ask for forgiveness, stop committing the sin and make restitution for the offence committed- so if we sold something from someone we are to give it back), Jehovah is quick to forgive us.

But if we confess our sins to him, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all wickedness. 1 John 1:9 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Prayer: Please Jehovah Mekaddishkem (Exodus 31:13 The LORD that Sanctifies Me) bless me with the Holy Spirits help to convict me when I grieve You and the help me repent so as to remain a child of Your with whom You are well pleased. I sincerely request this in the name of He whose blood brought me redemption Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Today and Every Day.

Oh my Beloved El Emunah (Deuteronomy 7:9 The Faithful GOD ), I need You in my life today and every day.

Please bless me with Your gentle healing touch when others inflict me with cruel words or actions today.

Please bless me to be forgiving as You are forgiving unto me.

Please bless me with Your forgiveness when I am cruel in my words and actions today and guide me to repent to those I have offended either intentionally or unintentionally.

Please constantly remind me to depend upon Your guidance instead of foolishly depending upon my own or others flawed intelligence.

Thank you for Your healing balm upon my wounded heart as You are the best doctor there is.

Thank you that there is always a purpose in the wounds and aches and pains that come my way. They are for teaching me, maturing me or correcting me when I am going astray. You allow these because You love me too much to leave me as I am and desire for me to be the child of Yours You know I can be. It is because of these my Lord that my love for You grows ever deeper every day and we grow ever closer every day.

Thank you for that, the best blessing You can give me above all other blessings.

I humbly say this prayer in the name of my best friend Jesus Christ. Amen

A Continuous War.

 We are pressed on every side by troubles, but we are not crushed. We are perplexed, but not driven to despair. We are hunted down, but never abandoned by God. We get knocked down, but we are not destroyed. 2 Corinthians 4:8-9 Holy Bible New Living Translation

As Christians we are in a continuous war.

There is of course, war with those that are liberal minded (if it feels good do it, there is no absolute right or wrong, there is no God).

There is the constant was against demons who relish nothing more than destroying our loving relationship with Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit.

But, the most brutal of all wars is raged in our hearts and minds.

Thoughts of lust, greed, anger, fear and worry are our ever present foes.

That is why it is so important to be in continuous prayer.

When these thoughts and emotions enter our minds and hearts we are to immediately call out to Jehovah to send the Holy Spirit to sweep these thoughts from us like you sweep dirt out of a house.

Then, to fill our house with the sweet fragrance of love, joy and gratitude to our loving Father Jehovah our precious Savior Jesus Christ and our strong Deliverer the Holy Spirit.

“Who sits in solitude and is quiet has escaped from three wars: hearing, speaking, seeing; yet against one thing shall he continually battle: that is, his own heart.”  St. Antony

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Gibbor Milchamah (Psalms 24:8 The LORD Mighty In Battle) for blessing me with the weapons required on a daily basis for the continual battle in my mind and heart. Thank you that through Your strength and wisdom victory is guaranteed. Thank you that when I lose a battle and call out to You, You sooth my soul while blessing me with healing balm for my heart. You are such a wonderful Warrior King. I praise You in Your majestic name. Amen

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

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

It Happens to All of Us

GUARD YOUR INPUT

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

It happens to all of us.

There are folks that abuse us at some point in our lives.

Some repent and some do not.

Irregardless, the wound cuts deep and there is bitterness in our hearts. If we are not careful the root will grow deep like a dandelion root. It will poison our spiritual life, our mental life and our physical life until it destroys us. The root grows too deep for us to rip it out. We need to call upon the Master Gardener for that.

His name is Jesus and you can call Him anytime at P.R.A.Y.

Do not think this will be a one time call. Sometimes the seed comes back and we need to call the Master Gardener again. Sometimes those weeds will never be completely eradicated until we reach the Gates of Heavens home for us.

Jesus is the Master Gardener. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah YAHWEH Ropheka :God our healer, for blessing me with Your Divine healing. Some of the wounds were deep and infested my soul for decades. The only way healing occurred was to place the infection at Your feet and trust in Your gracious healing. I thank you in the name of the grand Healer Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Brings Me into His

Give burden to Jesus

 Weeping may last through the night but joy comes with the morning. Psalm 30:5 The Holy Bible New Living Translation

Satan is darkness, Jesus is light.

When the darkness of fear, anger, sadness and worry envelope me, I call out to my loving Heavenly best friend. He lifts me out of satans darkness and brings me into His loving, healing, comforting assuring brilliant light.

Prayer: Please Holy Spirit remind me of how You walked with me through oh so many trials and tribulations, sorrows and snares and dangers in the past so that I will have complete confidence in you whenever they come upon me in the future. Because this will cause my heart to sing for joy knowing you are there, you care and you have total control over the situation. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El SIMCHAH GIYL (God my Exceeding Joy) for blessing my heart with exceeding joy as I remember Your brilliant light that guided me through the darkest hours of my life I exalt You in the name of the light of the world Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with peace and joy every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Following the Example Of

FOLLOWING CHTISTS EXAMPLE

Live a life filled with love, following the example of Christ. Ephesians 5:2 Holy Bible New Living Translation

We imitate that which we admire. Joseph a son of Jehovah

True Christians admire, adore and worship Christ. As such, they are not haughty nor self righteous. They are humble ( which means we do not put ourselves above nor below others. We are confident in who we are in Christ so we do not need to impress anybody. ), loving, compassionate and respectful.

When folks see this in a selfish self centered world they are drawn to us like bugs to a light. That is how we imitate Christ, which is the only way to attract the little lost sheep to the Great Sheppard flock.

“There is not a hint of one person who was afraid to draw near him [Jesus]. There were those who mocked him. There were those who were envious of him. There were those who misunderstood him. There were those who revered him. But there was not one person who considered him too holy, too divine, or too celestial to touch. Max Lucado

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Pyyrand (Jesus my best friend) for the casual manner in which we can commune together. Please bless me with this ability to emulate You when in the midst of the lost so they can relax and be open to receiving Your message of a desire to bless them with a loving relationship with You as You have blessed me. I sincerely request this in Your beautiful name. 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

Eternity Offers Only Two.

kigndom of heaven

I call heaven and earth as witnesses against you today, that I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse Deuteronomy 30:19 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

It is so confusing.

That is what I used to say about life. There are so many options and so many voices. Which one do I listen to? This one says this and that one says that (I find that particularly true in health care). It makes the head spin.

After accepting Christ as my Savior He slowly showed me that to do so also makes Him my King and me His free will servant. Many of the things He instructed me to do were difficult. But that was to teach me to depend upon Him for guidance and strength. Many things seemed crazy, that was to teach me to trust Him implicitly in my life. Through the course of these decades long lessons He was slowly teaching me the most important lesson of all though: That is to continuously grow deeper in a loving relationship with Him. The ultimate goal will be to share eternity with the one I love and worship the most.

In the world there is so much confusion because they listen to the flawed doctrines of others instead of listening to and obeying the pure wisdom that only comes from the Holy Spirit. This is the rough trial to Heaven, all others only lead to eternal misery in Hell.

“Life offers many choices. Eternity offers only two.”  Author Unknown

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Tsidkenu (The Lord is Righteousness) for blessing me with being a guiding light in my life in this dark confusing world. I exalt You in the name of He who is the light of the world 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.

Do You Notice What Jesus Said?

 And he fell to the ground and heard a voice [from heaven] saying to him, “Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting and oppressing Me?” Acts 9:4 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Do you notice what Jesus said?

He did not say why are you persecuting Christians.

He did not say why are you persecuting my servants. He did not say why are you persecuting my friends.

He specifically asked Saul why Saul was persecuting Him.

When anyone persecutes a Christian for their walk with Christ take assurance that Jesus takes it very personally.

When you read about Jehovahs curses He always curses seven time worse. So when anyone persecutes, mistreats or oppresses a Christian it is guaranteed by Jehovah promise that His vengeance shall return upon their heads seven times worse.

That should make us rejoice that justice is done on our behalf right?

Wrong.

Reading our Bibles we discover Jehovahs justice is a terrible thing to be subjected to. Therefore, if we have love for others in our hearts, as we should, we should be weeping at what is coming our perpetrators way and pray that the Holy Spirit guides them unto repentance so as to avoid Jehovahs horrible justice.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Hashopet (The Lord is the supreme Judge) that You will deliver true justice to my antagonists and those who abuse me. There is no plea bargaining nor parole in Your supreme court. I do pray though, that through this justice it brings them unto repentance. I give thanks for this blessing and pray for this blessing in the name of the Supreme Judge on Judgement Day Jesus Christ. Amen.

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