Which Disease do You Have?

BE SATISFIED

Do you have any of these?

Complaining is infectious

Complaining is infectious, contagious. Have you ever been around a negative Nellie? All she does is complain. Either it is too hot or too cold. We need rain or it is raining out. She can take the sails out of your cherry day in five minutes. Complaining changes your attitude. You become a very negative person. Usually it is manipulative theft. They complain about things in their life to get you to have pity on them. This gives them affection while they give you nothing in return.

I politely try to have a positive attitude with them. If they refuse to change their attitude I strongly but politely inform them their attitude is not welcome and if all they want to do is be negative go whine to someone else. Either their attitude changes or they avoid me.

Either way, problem solved.

Nagging is destructive

Nagging is destructive to relationships. If anything you do is never good enough you reach the point of not trying. Usually I just step back and ask them to show me a better way. Most times they shut up and leave me alone. They would rather nag than help reach a constructive solution. How many children have given up because of a nagging parent?

As a teacher I see it a lot. I always try to be positive and encouraging with far superior results

Doubting is destructive

Doubting is destructive not only to you but to everyone around you. How many times has a great plan everyone is hyped up to start crash and burn because one doubting Dave destroys it with his negativity.

How many times I have experienced people tell me if I tried something it would fail. People told me I would fail when I tried tree planting. After thirteen years I planted over a million trees all across Canada.

When I informed people I was going to bicycle from Canada to Mexico everybody laughed and told me I would fail. It took me three months to complete the trip. The list goes on and on

If you feel Jehovah is guiding you to do something do not listen to the doubting Daves. Go for it believing He will always provide you with the tools to succeed.

Wandering is humbling

Wandering is humbling because you usually take small baby steps away from the path Jesus has chosen for you to take in your service to Him. One day it will be like a exploding flash of lightening just how far you have wandered. The devil will laugh and tell you Jesus is angry with you and does not love you anymore. Do not believe that filthy liar. Jesus loves you and anxiously waits for you to return to Him. Such incredible love is very humbling.

Prayer: Oh wonderful Abba please do not allow me to spread infectious diseases, but rather I humbly give my life to you to guide to accomplish Your mission for my life. In Jesus’ wonderful name I ask Amen

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

You are Not Black, You are White.

trust in God

“Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow Isaiah 1:18 New King James Version

 

Sin is like the black suite from a filthy chimney.

When you repent Jehovah cleans that filth away like a chimney cleaner cleans the suite from the chimney.

Therefore, you are not black, you are white.

Believe this and stop beating yourself up.

We all make mistakes, welcome to life. But, when we repent those black sins are washed away.

 

Do not believe the lies of satan to beat you down. He does this to drive a wedge between you and Jehovah. Because, if you believe his lies you will be afraid of punishment from the Lord. This hampers you from developing a loving relationship with him and that is satan’s aim.

I know, I used to beat myself up a lot for past sins until I received good Christian counseling and learned to let it go.

Satan tells you, you are filthy, Jesus tells you, you are clean, who are you going to believe? Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Please Jehovah Ropheka (God our healer) bless all your hurting children with the knowledge and faith that when they repent You truly graciously forgive them. I humbly ask this in the name of the one hose blood made this possible Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Do You Dwell There?

GODS HELP

“Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. Isaiah 43:18 New International Version

 

Do you dwell there?

You know, do you keep on beating yourself up for some stupid mistake you made years ago?

 

When you repent the Lord casts it away like the rubbish it was so why do you not do the same?

 

Do you keep on reliving abuse that was inflicted upon you years ago?

Let it go or it will destroy you.

Now in these two instances the cuts may be deep which will mean you may need Christian counseling.

 

Do not be too proud to seek it out.

A wise man, or woman understands there are times in life when we need to help others as well as accept others help in our lives.

I know.

It was only when I got into counseling that many of my past deep wounds were healed and I learned how to deal with the abusive ones that take perverted pleasure in inflicting those cuts on others. Yes they are still there but because of the counseling they are no longer able to cause the damage in my life.

Do you keep on reveling in your glory years even though they are like a morning mist and have long since disappeared?

 

I have met too many that remember their glory years as the best of times. They ignore the bad things that happened then, only the good.

I am not saying to be a Negative Nellie but do not be a Glory Geordie either.  There was both good times and bad in every stage of our lives.

Come into the present while concentrating on Gods will for you today and tomorrow.

You cannot see what is ahead of you if you keep on looking back. Joseph- Anthony: Green

 

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rohi (God is our Sheppard) for helping me to learn form the lesson of the past while not dwelling on them. Thank you for blessing me with keeping my eyes focused on Your intended path in my walk with You. I exalt You in he name of he who was always focused on Your calling in His walk amongst us Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Thank Him For Breaking Your Heart.

FOLLOW YOUR WAYS

 

I am feeble and utterly crushed.  I groan in anguish of heart Psalm 38:7-9 New International Version

I used to be very spiteful and hold a grudge a long time. You did not want to cross me.

Then through an excoriating process that took years of heart ache and Christian counseling I learned to let go.

Now I have learned the wisdom of forgiving (that does not mean you do not hold those accountable for what they did) and leaving justice in Jehovahs hands. Sometimes it is still difficult and that is when I earnestly pray for the strength and wisdom to follow Jehovahs way of doing things

I have learned that He provides plenty of opportunity for those to repent and if they refuse His hand is very heavy on the perpetrators.

Meanwhile, I have a heart filled with peace, love and joy.

.

If through a broken heart God can bring His purposes to pass in the world, then thank Him for breaking your heart.” Oswald Chambers                                            

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Ropheka (God our healer) for blessing me with healing many deep painful cuts others have caused in my heart. Thank you for depending upon You to always make things right. I praise You in the name of He who healed so many when He walked amongst us Jesus Christ. Amen.

The Divine Pardon.

a couple of huge birds resing on a log in a serene lake

Let the wicked forsake his way, And the unrighteous man his thoughts; Let him return to the Lord, And He will have mercy on him; And to our God, For He will abundantly pardon. Isaiah 55:7 New King James Version

There is no sin committed which the Lord will not forgive upon repentance.

Look at David, look at Peter, look at Paul. They were all recalls in their own right however upon repentance they were forgiven.

 

Now repentance means not only being sorry but to stop doing what is wrong and try to make right to those you have done wrong to.

 

Many times this will entail getting good Christian counseling and obeying what is said to do.

 

Many times this is beyond your capability which is when you need the help of the Holy Spirit and be obedient to His divine guidance.

 

Prayer: Search me oh Lord and if there is any deeds I have committed in word or action, convict me of them and bless me with them means of gaining true repentance. I humbly request this in the name of He who paid such a high price for this privilege Jesus Christ. Amen.

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