Because I Nurture A

Oh my Beloved Jehovah Abba (God our Father 1 John 3:1 ) I have learned the hard way that bad company corrupts good character.

I know that, because I nurture a loving relationship with You, my cherished best friend Jesus Christ will be greeting me with open arms at Heavens Gate.

I know those with disreputable character shall be cursed with a wicked greeting at the gates of Hell by horrid demons.

Please grant me discernment to avoid those that will try to lead me away from You and towards Hell.

Help me to nurture our loving relationship every moment of every day as I walk towards Heavens Gate.

I sincerely request this in the name of He who is my best friend Jesus Christ. Amen

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

The Source of All Comfort.

 All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. God is our merciful Father and the source of all comfort. He comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others. When they are troubled, we will be able to give them the same comfort God has given us. 2 Corinthians 1:3-4 Holy Bible New Living Translation

Those make the best comforters and encouragers are those who have suffered the most and come through it ever closer to Christ.

Jehovah loves you so He does not allow you to suffer for nothing. He uses these experiences to help mature you, to burn off the dross (habits that hinder your development into a strong Christian character) and to add more tool to your work belt of being a encouraging Christian to others.

Jehovah permits us to go through hard times and help us through them so that not only can we help others though our experience but that we guide them to Jesus through that experience. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Lord, please bless me to guide me to help others as You have helped me. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Shammah ( The Lord is Present Hebrews 13:5 ) for walking with me through all of my troubles and lovingly healed me, encouraged me, and strengthened me. Please my Love bless me with opportunities to reciprocate this to others when the storms of life are crashing down around them. I sincerely ask this in the name of He who always took time to help others, Jesus Christ. Amen

The gift of love, the gift of joy, the gift of peace, these are the greatest gifts that can be given. They are given in abundance to all those in Christs family by our Heavenly loving  Father. May you be blessed with plentiful opportunities to share these with those around you today. Joseph a son of Jehovah

What is your problem?

 Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand. Isaiah 41:10
The Holy Bible New Living Translation

What is your problem?

Is it fear?

Believe me, I have been there more times than I can count. The majority of times it was for nothing.

Fear is a lack of trust in Jehovah. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Being mere mortals we will always have moments of fear.

The difference is that those of us who have walked with Christ long enough know enough to conquer that fear by immediately praying unto Jesus and having the confidence He will take care of it for us. That does not mean that we will just sit back on out buts and wait for Him to do all the work.

Faith means that sometimes we sit back and allow Jehovah to work His will through the problem with the belief that He will take care of it. It also means that we are willing to follow His commands, even though, many times we do not see nor understand what He is doing.

At first this was a terrifying experience for me. Now, I just laugh a wait to see just how unusual a way He will resolve the issue (and in my life it is always in unusual ways).

Are you discouraged?

Boy have I traveled down that road with that heavy load on my back.

Again at first it is difficult to have faith that Jehovah will lift us up. Sometimes He allows us to endure through the experience to build our character up.

“Talents are best nurtured in solitude: character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.” — Goethe

Sometimes, He lovingly comforts, encourages and strengthens us to continue on. Jehovah is always there to help us in the best manner for victory over the challenges of life. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Tsuri (Psalms 19:14 O LORD My Strength) for blessing me with the strength to continue on when I feel as if there is nothing left in me to give. Thank you for Your powerful strength to carry me when I am too exhausted to continue on. I praise You in the name of He who had the strength to endure the horrors of the cross for me, Jesus Christ. Amen

Christ blesses us with love, peace and joy. May you be blessed with many opportunities to share these with others today.   Joseph a son of Jehovah

In the Stormy Billows

We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance.  And endurance develops strength of character Romans 5:3-4 The Holy Bible, The New Living Testament Version

It is in the storms of life we grow the most. Joseph a son of Jehovah

We grow in dependence upon Jehovah for delivery of our trials and tribulations.

We grow the most in the skills and strength He blesses us with to conquer the storms no matter how much they rage in or lives.

This is why I believe the education system in the west and the momma bears would pamper their children are doing a severe dis-service to their children. By sheltering them through the hard times they nurture spinless, entitled momma boys and girls who are unprepared for the world when they leave the nest. This is the major reason there is so much cry babying in society today in the west. The young feel entitled and expect the government to pamper them like mommy and their teachers did.

“Talents are best nurtured in solitude: character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.” Goethe

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Elohim Ozer Li (Psalms 54:4 GOD My Helper) for blessing me with Your saving help whenever the storms are too great for me to conquer. Thank you for helping me to defeat the raging storms when You know I need to and can defeat them on my own. I praise You in the name of He who calmed the raging storm for His disciples on that lake Jesus Christ. Amen

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

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

When We Run Into Problems

tested in afflictionWe can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance. And endurance develops strength of character, and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation. Romans 5:3-5 The Holy Bible New Living Translation

I do not know about you but I do not exactly dance for joy and sing praises unto Jehovah whenever problems and troubles come into my life.

At first I used to ask why it was happening to me like a whining little child (come on we all do ).

Then I would be asking what the Holy Spirit was trying to teach me through these events.

Now, I understand that even though bad things happen to good folks for no reason every problem and trouble can be used to fortify some part of our character (which most time either I though I was strong in them or did not realize how weak I was in them).

Jehovah has a purpose for every problem. He uses them to mature your character and to develop Your relationship with Him ever stronger. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Tsori ( Lord my Strength ) Psalm 19:14 for blessing me with problems and troubles to help strengthen my character to become ever more of the holy child You desire me to be. I exalt You in the name of my strongest savior Jesus Christ. Amen

May Christ bless you with love, joy and peace today and every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah Photo and article @ Joseph a son of Jehovah 2019

Use Them to Share with Others

FRUIT OF THE HOLY SPIRIT

 Moses told his father-in-law everything the Lord had done to Pharaoh and Egypt on behalf of Israel. He also told about all the hardships they had experienced along the way and how the Lord had rescued his people from all their troubles. Exodus 18:8 Holy Bible, New Living Translation

This is why it is important to share with others all Jehovah has done for you and through you in your life.

Yes it is important to share this with your children and grandchildren but it is just as important to share these events with your neighbours, your co-workers, those who are baby Christians.

With those outside of the family it may encourage them to become members of Jehovahs family.

For the baby Christians it will strengthen them and encourage them.

When others see or hear of the fact that Jehovah is there with us through it all, it makes Him real to them. He is not some make believe God nor something of old that is irreverent to us today. We use our trials and troubles, sorrows and snares to make Jehovah real to those around us. That is one reason they are given to us, so that we will use them to share with others the providential care of our Heavenly Father.

“The little troubles and worries of life may be as stumbling blocks in our way, or we may make them stepping-stones to a nobler character and to Heaven. Troubles are often the tools by which God fashions us for better things.” — Henry Ward Beecher

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Uzam (The Lord is our Strength in Trouble) for blessing me with teaching me that no matter the trials or troubles, heartaches or misery, You are always right there beside me through it all, many times teaching me things that could not be learned any other way. May I be blessed to share this wisdom and encouragement with other brothers and sisters going through their own troubles so as strengthen them through their difficulties. I sincerely request this in the name of He who walked through oh so many trials and tribulations, heartaches and misery with His beautiful friends here on earth Jesus Christ. Amen

Whatever is beautiful, whatever is meaningful, whatever brings you joy, may you be blessed with an abundance of it this every day this year.

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

There Should be a Melting

we are purified

My son, do not reject or take lightly the discipline of the Lord [learn from your mistakes and the testing that comes from His correction through discipline]. Proverbs 3:11 The Holy Bible Amplified Version 

It is in the fire of the burning off of the dross that my Heavenly Father completely destroyed destructive traits in my disposition. It was extremely painful but I am eternally grateful for Him for blessing me this necessary action.

We all have bad dispositions, both good and bad, we have inherited from our parents. That is natural.

Removing the destructive ones can only be accomplished super naturally. There is no one superior to Jehovahs super powers.

Now notice that I mentioned dispositions. We all have more than one. The more we more have the more we will be put into the fire. The more we resist the fire the longer we will be in it until we surrender to our Lords will and power in our lives.

Speaking personally, I have been put in that fire so many times and been in there so long I am surprised I do not have a permanent sun burn (I used to be a little stubborn).

”For a Christian to defy adversities is to “despise” chastisement. Instead of hardening himself to endure stoically, there should be a melting of the heart.” — Arthur W. Pink

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Naheh (the Lord who Smites) with smiting me Your rod of adversity whenever I am a disobedient child of Yours or when it is necessary to purge me of harmful dispositions with in my character. It is necessary so that I may become more pure in Your eyes and for my interaction with those around me. I praise You in the name of He whose anger at wickedness caused Him to strike the unrepentant money changers in Your temple 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

True Christian Love Must Be

CHRIST FIRST, OTHERS SECOND 

The one who does not love has not become acquainted with God [does not and never did know Him], for God is love. [He is the originator of love, and it is an enduring attribute of His nature.] 1 John 4:8 The Holy Bible, Amplified Version

True Christian love must be . . .

Blended with all our habits. A habit is formed by repetition of actions over time until they become as natural to us as breathing. Therefore we need the Holy Spirit to guide us in our daily actions to habitually exhibit Christ’s love towards others at every opportune time that comes our way.

Diffused through all our conduct. Our conduct will be a spiritual by product of our habits.

Forming our character. Our character is formed by the the Divine will and attributes of Christ who has shown us what Holy character is by His actions.

It is His morals which is formed in or hearts , minds and actions not the perverted vile worldly ones. His is to be supreme in every action we partake every moment of every day. We can only succeed in this arduous undertaking through the power and guidance of the Holy Spirit to which we must constantly submit to whether it is delightful or difficult. Breathing in our desires.

Christian desire is for the the glorifying of Christ and the betterment of those around us with the ultimate goal of leading them into Jehovahs Holy family.

Speaking in our words. Loves words are encouraging, healing, teaching and comforting. The only way we can attain this is by constantly requesting the Holy Spirit guide our words and obeying His direction of speech in each individual circumstance.

Beaming in our eyes. Christian love must have gentle love in our eyes not earthly lusts nor hatred of prejudice towards others Love is the most difficult action we undertake every day.

Yet, it is also Divine in its nature and Heavenly in its rewards. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah Heseh (God is love) please bless me with an abundance of Divine love to bountifully share with others so as to emulate You. May this love direct them unto the greatest love, You which is one of the greatest gifts You may bless me with. I humbly beseech Thee in the name of He whose infinite love for me took Him all the way to the cross Jesus Christ. Amen

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