To My Dear Cherished

In the morning, O Lord, I will direct my song and my prayer unto You and will look up. (Psalm 5:3)

To My dear cherished Poppa : Good morning Poppa This is the day that You have made and I rejoice and be glad for the gift of it.

With gratitude, I thank You for preserving my life for one more day.

With gratitude, I thank you for Your ultimate gift of love for me, in the form of Your Son and the sacrifice of His life on my behalf. Because of this overwhelming gift that I often cannot comprehend, I humbly submit to You.

I know Lord, that I am a mere human and cannot instruct You, but you Lord bless me with The Holy Spirit to instruct me.

So teach me Your ways that I may rely on Your steadfast faithfulness. Teach me to number my days and to use my time wisely. I don’t know what this day holds, but I know that You hold the day.

It was you that laid the foundations of the Earth and therefore understands every part of it. I know that you keep the sun in the sky, the stars in place, and have created this Earth for me to inhabit and enjoy.

Throughout this day, may I be always be keenly aware of Your presence in everything I do – as I commute to work, drop children off at school, keep house and speak with my neighbors.

May my life be a living example and may others see Christ in me.

There are many that are hurting in this world – may I be a salve to someone today Lord, in a way that I can’t even imagine.

May my words be seasoned with salt and minister grace to all that hear.

May my actions be aligned with your Word.

I pray for wisdom that is peaceable, gentle, and approachable, with lots of mercy and fairness. You said an unlimited supply of wisdom is available to me if I simply ask, I so humbly request for wisdom to know how to deal with the many people and situations that will cross my path.

I pray for protection throughout this day; protect from harm and evil; go before me, to the left and right of me and behind me. Guide my steps so that I walk worthy of Your calling throughout this day. May I always be sensitive to Your promptings – whether it shows up as a gentle tug or a strong conviction. I pray for reconciliation in families, in nations and to You.

I pray that all may come to know you and be reconciled back to You.

Poppa, you know my faults and my flaws, please forgive me for being unkind with my words and my thoughts; forgive me for being self-serving; forgive me for holding on to old wounds instead of giving them to You.

Please forgive me, Poppa. When I am overwhelmed, confused, unsure, and restless, help me run to Your Word, The Holy Bible.

May your Word come alive to me so that it is a living guide in every situation I encounter this day.

Help me, Poppa, to remember the promises of your Word and bring the right passage to my remembrance for the situation I encounter. I acknowledge Poppa that I need to spend more time with You reading and praying so that I am prepared for whatever the day brings. Poppa I know that your Word is indeed a light unto my feet and a light unto the path You have chosen for me to walk this day .

Please remove fear and anxiety. from my heart and mind . As believers You have not given me a spirit of fear, but of love power and a sound mind. So when I are fearful, please remind me of Your love for me and use that love as the impetus to love others and see situations differently; may I tap into the power that you have given me, for I am never alone because You have not left me comfortless.

May Your wisdom be the underpinnings for my sound mind.

May I remember that I do not have to be anxious and when I am tempted to be anxious or worrisome, may I verbalize my concerns to you and then leave them there as You taught me to do. Worry does me no good and limits me, and You do more with my worry than I ever could. So please help me to turn all of my anxious thoughts and nerve-wracking situations over to You; to truly do that and trust that You are working. That You are working all things together for my good because You love me; that You are working in ways that I cannot comprehend because Your ways always supersede mine. And that in this working You are molding me continually into masterpieces fit for Your use.

Thank You for increasing my faith and capacity to love You by being loving towards others just as You are loving towards me.

As a child of yours Lord, I know that I am Your masterpiece though sometimes I feel so far from it. Please help me to remember my worth in You when I’m faced with challenging situations.

When I feel depressed, help me to remember that I am fearfully and wonderfully made in Your image , a replica of You and that You loved me so much You thought that I was worth dying for.

I do not know anyone that would die for me, but Your beautiful Son, my best friend did, and I’m eternally grateful and humbled for His supreme gift of love towards me.

For the unseen, Poppa, I thank you. You are beyond understanding, You are abundant, you are mine, and I am Yours. I totally and completely submit everything in my life to You today,

I humbly request this in the name of He who humbly went to the cross for me, Jesus Christ. Amen.

May your heart, mind and feet walk hand in hand with Christ this day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

We Are Not to Be

A good man deals graciously and lends; He will guide his affairs with discretion. Psalms 112:5 The Holy Bible, The New King James Version

Discretion the quality of having or showing discernment or good judgment. Merriam Webster Dictionary

Yes, we are to lend in the appropriate way in the appropriate time. We are not to be suckers.

The first time you bail someone out that is mercy. The second time is abuse. Bailing out the second time prevents them from maturing by taking consequences for thier actions. Joseph a son of Jehovah

“Maturity is not based on age, but on the willingness to accept responsibility.”Dr. Edwin Louis Cole

Now how are we to gain wisdom to make good judgement?

Of course we go to The Answer Man, He knows everything.

And who is this Answer Man?

The wisest of all, Jehovah. He knows everything.

And how do we know His answer for us?

“Faith does not eliminate questions. But faith knows where to take them.” -Elisabeth Elliot

A wise man waits and pray for three days as well as reads his Bible. Jehovah always answers those who have faith in Him, which means to trust Him.

We must also be patient because Jehovah answers in His time, In His way.

I depend upon You, Holy Spirit to help me set Godly boundaries in my relationships. I depend upon You to guide me in the proper use of these skills to nurture loving relationships while purging myself of toxic folks who only bring unnecessary drama and chaos to my life.

Prayer: Please Jehovah El Deah ( God of knowledge. Romans 11:33 ) guide me to share my time, talents, and gifts wherever and whenever You direct me to so as to bring You glory and honour. And, to bring the little lost sheep to You. Please protect me from the abusive wolves who only want to make a sucker out of me. I humbly ask this in the name of He who gave His life for mine, Jesus Christ. Amen .

I love to share the events in my life where Jehovah, Jesus and they Holy Spirit have touched me. How can I not. They were life changing. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Never Mind Telling Them.

“Look, I now teach you these decrees and regulations just as the Lord my God commanded me, so that you may obey them in the land you are about to enter and occupy. Obey them completely, and you will display your wisdom and intelligence among the surrounding nations. When they hear all these decrees, they will exclaim, ‘How wise and prudent are the people of this great nation!’ For what great nation has a god as near to them as the Lord our God is near to us whenever we call on him? And what great nation has decrees and regulations as righteous and fair as this body of instructions that I am giving you today? Deuteronomy 4:5-8 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Do you notice that it is when the Israelite’s lived according to Jehovahs instructions that the surrounding nations became intrigued by them?

So too it is to be with us in our quest to bring others into Jehovahs family.

I hear so many preachers say we must evangelize the world to bring everyone to Jesus and we must share Jesus with the world.

Never mind telling them, the most effective way to bring others to Christ is by living the Christian life. When others see you are different from the rest of society they will be curious. THEN, you can share what Jesus has done in your life and through your life.

A Christian must walk the walk before they talk the talk. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Those whose hearts are receptive will move towards Christ while those who prefer living in darkness will walk away. Do not go after those who walk away. Leave that to the Holy Spirit to move their hearts towards Jesus. If they will not listen to the Holy Spirit, they sure will not listen to you.

Prayer: Please Jehovah GELAH RAZ ( the God of the Revealer of Mysteries Colossians 1:26 ) bless me to live a life that emulates Your beloved son Jesus Christ so that when others see this mysterious manner of living they will be drawn towards me and I can be blessed with sharing the simple truth of the blessing of being a loved child of Yours, which is a mystery to the dark world. I humbly beseech Thee in the name of the Light of love in this dark world, 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 to be shared with others. May you be blessed with plentiful opportunities to share these with those around you today. Joseph a son of Jehovah

How to Get Superpower

 And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Advocate, who will never leave you. He is the Holy Spirit, who leads into all truth. The world cannot receive him, because it isn’t looking for him and doesn’t recognize him. But you know him, because he lives with you now and later will be in you. John 14:16-17 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

The Holy Spirit is the secret of the power in my life. All I have to do is surrender my life to Him.” — Kathryn Kuhlman

Do you want to know how to get superpower?

When we accept Jesus as our saviour and king, we are blessed with the Holy Spirit. He blesses us with super powers.

No one can bless us with the superior wisdom like He does for every aspect of our lives.

No one can conquer our destructive habits like He can.

No one can defeat our enemies like He can. No one can give us super power to resist temptation like He can.

And, the best of all, these powers are ours for the asking whenever we need them to help us be faithful, obedient servants unto Christ.

Unlike TV or movies, Christ’s powers are real and unconquerable. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Chatsahi (The Lord is my Strength Psalm 27:1 ) for blessing me with a minute bit of Your super strength to defeat all the obstacles in my life that tried in vain to separate us or hinder the work You destined for me to accomplish in Your awesome name.I give glory to You in the name of the ultimate super hero Jesus Christ. Amen

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

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

Please bless me with Your Divine understanding in how to life a daily life that is pleasing to You..

In Jesus Christ’s I respectfully ask. Amen

I Will Not Doubt

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.” Proverbs 3:5-6 The Holy Bible, The New Living Testament

trust in God

I will not doubt, though all my ships at sea
Come drifting home with broken masts and sails;
I will believe the Hand which never fails
From seeming evil worketh good for me.
And though I weep because those sails are tattered,
Still will I cry, while my best hopes lie shattered;
I trust in You. I will not doubt, though all my prayers return
Unanswered from the still, white realm above;
I will believe it is an all-wise love
Which has refused these things for which I yearn.
And though at times I cannot keep from grieving,
Yet the pure ardor of my fixed believing
Undimmed shall burn.

I will not doubt, though sorrows fall like rain,
And troubles swarm like bees about a hive;
I will believe the heights for which I strive
Are only reached by anguish and by pain.
And though I groan and writhe beneath my crosses,
I yet shall see through my severest losses
The greater gain.

I will not doubt. Well anchored is this faith,
Like some staunch ship, my soul braves every gale;
So strong its courage that it will not quail
To breast the mighty unknown sea of death.
Oh, may I cry, though body parts with spirit,

I do not doubt, so listening worlds may hear it,
With my last breath.

PRAYER: Thank you  Jehovah Immeka (Judges 6:12 The LORD Is with You)  that You are always there, that You always care.                                                  Thank you that You will never desert me nor leave me.                   I gratefully praise You in the name of my most steadfast friend Jesus Christ. Amen 

No matter if everyone else deserts You, Jesus is the steady rock that You can always depend upon Joseph a son of Jehovah

A Lowly Worm

 Though you are a lowly worm, O Jacob, don’t be afraid, people of Israel, for I will help you. I am the Lord, your Redeemer. Isaiah 41:14 The Holy Bible The New Living Translation

The worm is a lowly creature that is easily destroyed. It is weak and helpless.

That is exactly the Christian that Jehovah accomplishes the most with.

Those are the ones that do not depend upon their own strength nor wit to accomplish the task our Heavenly King sets before them.

Those are the ones that will stun the world because of Jehovahs power beating within their souls.

Those are the ones that confuse those who are wise in their own feeble minds with the Holy Spirits wisdom coursing through the brain.

Those are the ones whose song of joy, praise, adulation and respect sings like a Heavenly chorus echoing through the Heavens when the guaranteed victory is gained to the Heavenly King. It was He who used His loyal submissive servant to gain triumph which the lowly servant gleefully admits.

The ones who depend upon their own wit or strength satan laughs at as they are as easily beaten as a two year old in a wrestling match against a twenty year old. Oh what a deep cloud of shame and humiliation encompasses them.

When Jehovah calls us to accomplish great tasks it is normal for us finite creatures to experience anything but terror at such a great task. We know our weaknesses and cry out “not I my love for I am weak, send someone else”. This is the one with whom the Holy Spirit accomplishes the greatest with as He fills the Christian with confidence and power and not of ones own disposition.

DIVINE STRENGTH

Then fear flees like a frightened bird replaced with the power and confidence of the Holy Spirit.

Satan and his minions tremble at the sight of one such as these.

Those strong and wise in the world turn and run like scared dogs at the sight of such ones as filled with the Holy Spirit. That and that alone is how a Christian lives a victorious life.

By my strength and wit only failure will be my reward. By submitting to The Holy Spirit victory is guaranteed. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Izuz Wegibbor (Psalms 24:8 The LORD Strong and Mighty) for blessing me with Your undefeatable strength when the foes are too numerous and too strong for me to defend myself against.                                             

Thank you for blessing me with the strength to continue on when exhausted to a great victory for You.

I praise You for Your mighty, yest gentle protective arm around this feeble child of Your in the name of He whose strength kept Him nailed to the agonizing cross to accomplish the most awesome feat of all, salvation to all, Jesus Christ. Amen

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

The Lord Leads With

 The Lord leads with unfailing love and faithfulness all who keep his covenant and obey his demands. Psalm 25:10 The Holy Bible,The  New Living Testament Version

Those He leads He takes care of. He makes sure they have a place to stay, food and clothing. Because our Father loves us, He is happy to give blessings to us other than these.

fullfilled-desires

That does not mean you will be living in a mansion or driving and expensive car or dining at fancy restaurants. But, you will be contented in your living arrangements because you will have all you need not all you desire which is a form of greed.

Someone who is faithful is someone who can be depended upon to keep their word of honour.

No one is more dependent than Jehovah. He has never broken any of His promises in over six thousand years. That sounds pretty dependable to me.

However, the catch is that we must keep His covenant.

What is His covenant?

First is that we show our love for Him by being loving and obedient children unto Him first and fore most above all others. We must obey His demands so we go where He tells us to go and do what He tells us to do.

Second, that we are loving towards others. We are loving towards them by being helpful, respectful, polite and firm when necessary.

When we are faithful unto Jehovah, He is innumerably more faithful unto us. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rohi ( Jesus is our Divine Shepherd )- Psalm 23 that when I follow Your wise voice, You always lead me through the dark and dangerous valleys of life. I exalt You in the name of the greatest Shepard, 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.   Joseph a son of Jehovah

The Only Way To

NO DOMINION Discretion is a life giving fountain to those who possess it, but discipline is wasted on fools. Proverbs 16:22 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

The only way to possess discretion is by daily requesting it from He whose discretion is the best there is, that is Jehovah. We need to moment by moment depend upon the Holy Spirits discretion in every nick and cranny of our life.

Otherwise, we are easy prey for the scammers and con artists out there. The worst one of them all of course is satan. He will con you all the way into Hell if you let him. I have learned this the hard way but I pray the lesson is never forgotten.

Depend upon the Holy Spirit for success. Anything else, is a recipe for failure and disaster. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer:Thank you Jehovah Ori (Psalms 27:1) – The LORD My Light for blessing me with sending the Holy Spirit to shine His brilliant light of wisdom to guide me to righteous discretion. It has prevented a lot of grief in my life and blessed me with abundant peace.                                                                             I sing my praise unto You in the name of the wisest of all 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
