What Is in Your Harvest?

GODS LOVE

“Today I am giving you a choice between good and evil, between life and death.” Deuteronomy 30:15 Good News Testament                                                                                        

There is an old saying that says we reap what we sow.                                                      

So what is in your harvest?                                                                                                       

Are you only concerned about yourself?                                                                                   

Is your motto: What’s in it for me?”                                                                                     

When I was in China that was my experience with the Chinese.                                                            

From my experience  Chinaman will give you a nickel but expect a dollars worth of services in exchange.                                                                                            

A good point in case is a Chinaman will take me to restaurant and buy me a meal that costs ten dollars and expect me to sit there and teach them English for two hours. If they paid me an hourly rate it would cost them two hundred dollars. When I explain that they get what they pay for. That means if they want two hours classes they will pay BEFORE the class begins. The reason for paying before the class begins is because they will try to drag the class out for three hours or four hours and only pay for two or they will say they do not have the money this week but will pay next week and of course will keep this up as long as they can. Needless to say they look at you like you are dog dung on the sidewalk and walk away angry swearing at you in Chinese. Another thing they are famous for is being my friend as long as they can get something for free from me. When they cannot get it anymore or do not need it anymore I cease to exist to them.                                                                                 

As a consequence they reap what they sow.                                                                    

From what I saw, their lives are very sad and empty. They have no real friends, do not know what real friendship or love is and are very depressed.                                       

So how about you, does that describe your friendships and your life?                                                                                                                                                                        

Why do you think there is so much suicide?                                                                        

Is it because people are lonely?                                                                                               

Why are they lonely?                                                                                                             

Could it be because they only care about themselves and so have no real friends or anyone to love them?                                                                                                                          

Is that not evil and self centered?                                                                                        

If you only care about yourself, you will only have yourself. Joseph- Anthony: Green  

                                                                                                                                                                                          

“In due season God will judge everything man does, both good and bad” Ecclesiastes 3:17 (Living Bible).

Prayer: Please Jehovah El Shaddai (God who is sufficient for the needs of His people) bless me with a grateful heart for the many blessing You so generously give me every day. Bless me with a heart that puts You first, others second and myself last. I sincerely ask in the name of he who did this when he walked amongst us Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Growing Older Brings Us Closer to God.

A pair of red roses dancing in sunlight

It does not, therefore, depend on human desire or effort, but on God’s mercy Romans 9:16 New International Version                                                

Most times when we are younger we are cocky and depend upon ourselves more than we depend upon Jehovah.

As the years pass and we reflect how much our Beloved was walking with us through our trials and tribulations we respect and love Him more.

As we age we come to the realization that we will not be one this earth much longer and we have more aches and pains. We depend more upon our Cherished one and long to be with Him.

As a consequence growing older brings us closer to God.

Reflecting back I see a slow progression from self dependence to God dependence in my life. As well I see a deeper love, respect and admiration for my Beloved. I have grown closer to Him than I have with anybody or anything else. The consequence is a lot more peace, security and serenity in my life.

When the time comes for us to depart this world and we are laying in bed wondering if Jesus is real, if Heaven is real and if we are going to a Heavenly home the Holy Spirit comes to comfort and encourage us.

My salvation and my honor depend on God; He is my mighty rock, my refuge. Psalm 62:7 New International Version

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Chanan (God is gracious) for Your magnificent awesome infinite grace You have so richly showered upon me. Thank you for the comfort and encouragement of the Heavenly home You have so lovingly prepared for me to experience an eternity of love, joy, peace and good health with the one I so deeply love and long to live with. I exalt You in the name of my Heavenly king who is patiently waiting to greet me home Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Why Would He?

REPENT OR ELSE

 

If I had cherished sin in my heart, the Lord would not have listened. Psalm 66:18 New International Version

There was a man with two sons.

One son was obedient and loving with his father. As a consequence the father loved to show his affection and appreciation by showering the son with gifts.

The other son was arrogant, rude and unappreciative of the father. As a result the father gave that son nothing.

 

The first son is a Christian, the second worldly.

If you cherish the sinful life you are arrogant rude and disobedient to the Father. When you are like that and need His help why should He listen to you when you reject Him?

Prayer: I thank you Jehovah Abba (God our Father) for blessing me with an amazing loving relationship with you. Because of this I know You will always listen to this, Your loving child that You love so much. I praise you in the name of Your most holy son Jesus Christ. Amen.                                                                                                

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