You are Mine.

NEVER ENDING LOVE AFFAIR

 

I have called you by name; you are mine. Isaiah 43:1 The Holy Bible New Living Translation

There are two important facts in this verse.

The first one states that Jehovah calls out to you. No one “finds Jesus” as if it were some effort on their own. Jesus comes to you. Do not be arrogant and take credit for something you did not do. Instead, be eternally grateful every day. Thank Jehovah and Jesus for coming to you, bringing you out of darkness and into their brilliant light of love.

Second: We all belong to something. Perhaps, it is a sports team or a type of music or whatever it may be, there is always something that owns our heart.

For me, Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit own my mind, body and spirit. And, I cannot think of anyone or anything that is more loving and caring than them. It is a great comfort and encouragement knowing that I belong to them.

We are adopted into the most royal family of all. That makes us sons and daughters of our Heavenly Father Jehovah. What an awesome reality. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer : Thank you Jehovah Abba (God our Father) for calling out to me from the darkness to come into Your Divine light. Thank you for adopting me into Your Holy family and for the blessing of always being able to commune with my Poppa (You), my big brother (Jesus) and my amazing Guidance Councillor (the Holy Spirit). I exalt You fro these awesome gifts in the name of my big brother 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

More Loudly Than Your Lips.

chief-duty

 And whatever you do or say, do it as a representative of the Lord Jesus Colossians 3:17 Holy Bible, New Living Translation

There is an old saying: walk the walk before you talk the talk. I whole heartedly believe in this.

We are to walk like Christ did so as to shine His light into a dark world. Let our light be like a like that attracts the bugs at night to a street light. The difference is that our light guides others to Christ and then to Heaven.

It was the method I unknowingly used when a teacher (I say unknowingly because I just behaved as a Christian naturally and that stood out from the other teachers. When my children asked why I was different then I shared Jesus with them. Most were not interested but some were. Even if I bring one to Christ that is a great harvest to Him) with success every semester.

At the same time before we follow anyone claiming to be from Christ it is best to step back and watch their behavior. If it does not jive with Christ run away for they are of the deceiver and his name is satan.

May your life preach more loudly than your lips. Ellery Channing

Prayer: Please Jehovah RAB (The Lord my Nourisher) bless me with Your spiritual nourishment to enable me to live a life that nourishes those around me with Your Divine love. Please use this action to encourage others to come into Your Holy family. I meekly request this in the name of He who led twelve that set the world on fire Jesus Christ. Amen

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

He Blesses Us With The

SPIRITUAL STRENGTH

It is God who enables us, along with you, to stand firm for Christ.2 Corinthians 1:20-22 Holy Bible, New Living Translation

We cannot stand alone when we are Christians. The devil is too willy and strong.

The world is too overpowering to even attempt such a thing.

However, when we stand upon the rock of Christ nothing can or ever will defeat us. He blesses us with the strength, wisdom, grace and resources to a successful journey to His Heavenly home.

As well, in time of need, He will bring along those encouragers that invite us to not give up but rather give in. Give in to the power of The Holy Spirit which dwells with in us.

We will not succeed in all of the endeavors that come our way but they will be used as teaching lessons to continue on.

The other reason we will occasionally fail is to teach others later through our failure and how Jehovah picked us up and encouraged us on.

“You will never stand alone while standing on the Word of God.” Kathryn Souza-Wine

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Izoa Hakaboth (Lord Strong and Mighty) for blessing me with Your Divine strength and might as I travel about this day and every day. May I be blessed to share these with those who are in a time of weakness and need so as to strengthen them as You have strengthened me. I humbly request this in the name of the strongest, mightiest of them all Jesus Christ. 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

The Best In Crowd There Is

 The temptations in your life are no different from what others experience. And God is faithful. He will not allow the temptation to be more than you can stand. When you are tempted, he will show you a way out so that you can endure. 1 Corinthians 10:13 Holy Bible, New Living Translation

Being a recent ex smoker it seems as if temptation comes numerous times a day every day. They are ever so subtle but annoying. By Gods grace Bible verses that are memorized are recited and the temptation vanishes.

That is easy but then there is the group tempters. This is when you are tempted to do something wrong just to fit in with the “in crowd”. Trust me, after seeing the “in crowd’ forty years later it is best to avoid these losers at all cost.

That is why it is best to be with the best in crowd there is, the Christian in crowd.

To the world we look like geeks but then again we do not suffer from overdoses or getting shot at or sexual diseases. Sounds like a fun crowd huh?

Then there is the employment climber. That is where a employer tries to get you to do something unethical. Trust me I have seen what happens when the gig is up the one at the bottom of the ladder is usually the one taking the fall. It is not worth it.

The devil will always tempt you but stand firm in Christ by reading the Bible and memorizing victory verses. Have continual communion with Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit so that you are sensitive to their voice. Have a few close brothers and sisters that will be there to encourage you and support you .

“Opportunity may knock only once, but temptation leans on the doorbell.” Author Unknown

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah M’Kaddesh (The Lord is my Sanctifier) for blessing me with integrity so as to be sanctified unto Your Holy manner in which to conduct myself. Doing this prevents much trouble in my life and enables me to be a child whose actions please You. I exalt You in the name of He whose actions shine brightly thousands of years later, Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Be Careful of the Words You

 For you will be treated as you treat others. The standard you use in judging is the standard by which you will be judged. Matthew 7:2 Holy Bible, New Living Translation

Be careful of the words you say to someone today (especially the young ones), it may affect them the rest of their lives.

I grew up with very strong negative inputs in my life. I was constantly reminded of what a failure I was and that nothing was going to come of me. After moving away from these Negative Neliies it took me many decades to gain confidence in myself and that I was not a failure. The Holy Spirit had His work cut out with me. I like to say that I have succeeded in life in spite of those around me not because of them.

The good thing about this is that I was extremely sensitive to my children when a teacher.

No, I did not give them false beliefs like so many today that they can accomplish anything they desire and put their mind to. I did explain to them that sometimes there are things you cannot do but that does not make you a failure.

I did not puff them up when they succeeded but did praise and encourage them to expand their skills and knowledge from a sincere heart for their good.

They knew it and loved teacher for it.

I often wonder just how much I influenced their lives for good by my example.

And just remember this: what goes around, comes around. As you do unto others, so too will it be done back unto you. I have seen it oh so many times and believe me, it ain’t pretty.

“It is easier to ridicule than commend.” — Thomas Fuller

Prayer: Please Jehovah Ghmolah (The God of Recompense) put a lock on my lips when filth is about to be spewed from it and open it wide when sweet words of encouragement are about to flow from it. I deeply desire my speech to emulate Yours with whom have spoken so encouragingly to me. May I encourage others as You have me. I meekly request this in Your beautiful sons name who spoke so eloquently, like I deeply desire to, Jesus Christ. Amen

May the light of Christs love shine brightly in your heart today and every day

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.

Should Magnify Our

WORK IN PROGRESS

For our momentary, light distress [this passing trouble] is producing for us an eternal weight of glory [a fullness] beyond all measure [surpassing all comparisons, a transcendent splendor and an endless blessedness]! 2 Corinthians 4:17 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Sometimes the only way to learn is through the hard times.

In the easy times we tend to take things more lightly, especially concerning our obedience to Jehovah.

My life is a testimony to that.

It is in the hard times I learned the most and grew the most. They definitely were not enjoyable but I praise Jehovah for putting through them.

One good aspect of this type of learning is our appreciation for our Heavenly Teacher for the manner in which He teaches us the lesson. He does so in a manner in which the lesson will never be forgotten.

The other is that we more mature Christians use these lessons to pass on to those not as mature as us, hopefully to prevent them from making the same errors as us. For those going through the lessons, it encourages them to submit to the teachers instructions.

“Affliction comes to the believer not to make him sad, but sober; not to make him sorry, but wise. Even as the plow enriches the field so that the seed is multiplied a thousandfold, so affliction should magnify our joy and increase our spiritual harvest.” — Henry Ward Beecher

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Uzam (The Lord is our Strength in Trouble) for blessing me with so many afflictions. Although they were not enjoyable at the times, they were necessary to mature me in my walk towards You in Heaven. Thank you for blessing me with the strength to not only endure them but to prosper because of them. I praise You in the name of He who endure the worse affliction of all for me Jesus Christ. 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
