Carries Us to the Sea Of

following chtists example

 But the fruit of the Spirit [the result of His presence within us] is love [unselfish concern for others], joy, [inner] peace, patience [not the ability to wait, but how we act while waiting], kindness, goodness, faithfulness Galatians 5:22 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

We emulate the one we love and idolize.

As Christians that means we are to transform ourselves to behave as our best friend Jesus showed by His example while here on earth. We are to be led by the Holy Spirit where He has specific plans prepared for us. It is difficult at first (speaking from first hand knowledge) but becomes as natural as breathing the more we are obedient unto His direction. Now take this to heart and never forget it. Even though the ones we are gracious to may be ungrateful (which from experience they are) there are those who are watching that it will have a profound effect on.

One time when in China I used to give food instead of money to beggars (for which the vast majority was very angry for). After about a month I noticed many of the folks around that area were giving food to the beggars instead of nothing. This was a curious behavior because the beggars are usually ignored. Then the Lord brought enlightenment to me that they were emulating my actions. Wow.

And, remember this: “There is no small act of kindness that is not great in Heaven.” Joseph a son of Jehovah

“The stream of spontaneous acts of Godly kindness carries us to the sea of contentment and peace.” — Constance Hurst-Howard

One thing to remember as well as that there are certain area’s we are not to go to because they are unworthy and nothing good will come of our actions. Yes there were some area’s Jesus refused to preform any miracles in because of their unbelief so it would have been a waste of time. That is why it is imperative to depend upon the Holy Spirits guidance. He knows where to best invest your time, efforts and finances.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Shalom (The Lord blesses with Peace) for blessing me with joy in my heart and peace in my mind when I obey Your guidance to preform spontaneous acts of kindness to others. May it be a floodlight for others to see Your astounding love. I thank You in the name of He who preformed the most incredible acts of kindness during His earthly ministry Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Submits To and Delights In

CHRIST'S PEACE

 But godliness actually is a source of great gain when accompanied by contentment [that contentment which comes from a sense of inner confidence based on the sufficiency of God]. 1 Timothy 6:6 The Holy Bible Amplified Version 

Godliness means to live a life that Jehovah has directed us to live. When we do so we have a great source of contentment.

We are grateful and content with the daily blessings Jehovah showers upon us instead of worrying that we do not have enough life those of the world.

We are secure and contentment that we have a loving caring Heavenly Father that will always take care of us so we do not need to worry about losing a job or getting a sickness.

We sleep contentedly and peacefully at night knowing that we are in His loving tender care instead of suffering insomnia unnecessarily worrying about things we have no control over to begin with.

We need not worry about what is going to happen in life like those in the world because we know when we submit unto our Heavenly Father, He will always walk with us in the path He has chosen for us to take in this life.

“Christian contentment is that sweet, inward, quiet, gracious frame of spirit, which freely submits to and delights in God’s wise and fatherly disposal in every condition.” — Jeremiah Burroughs

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) for faithfully providing for me in all manner of my life. It has blessed me with a Heavenly contentment which only You can provide. I exalt You in the name of He who always provided for His disciples as He walked with them Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Is an Empty Life

foolish acts

 

 A pretentious, showy life is an empty life; a plain and simple life is a full life. Proverbs 13:7 The Message

I remember being laughed at for having a simple basic cell phone. Can it be used to send and receive calls, yes. Can it be used to send and receive tex messages Yes. Then what more do I need. These folks would then laugh and tell me about all the gadgets on their cell phones. The questions asked would be do you need or use them do you know how to work them all they why did you waste all that money purchasing something you will not use Of course they would brag about it being a certain make while mine was from a lesser known (although reliable) maker. Then they would be asked how much they paid for said cell phone to which they would respond that they paid over a hundred times more that I did. So you went into debt just to pump up your ego? Sounds foolish to me. Then they are miserable because they become slaves to the banks paying for an overpriced piece of metal while I am living a contented life.

It is the same with clothes, food and living accommodations and every other aspect of life. They stupidly go into debt way over their head and live a miserable life while I live a simple life walking with Christ and am quite contented and grateful for His blessings of meeting my daily needs.

He who loves money will not be satisfied with money, nor he who loves abundance with its gain. This too is vanity (emptiness). Ecclesiastes. 5:10 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Follow the proper leader.

Jesus lived a simple life in communion with Jehovah and was very content. Should we not follow His lead? Joseph a son of Jehovah

Greed and vanity are a sin and there is always a price to pay for following the devils lead

“Sin will take you farther than you want to go, keep you longer than you want to stay, and cost you more than you want to pay.” — Author Unknown

Prayer: Exaltation unto You oh most sanctified Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) for generous provision You faithfully provided me with every day. I extol Thee in the name of He whose cherished blood provides the key to open Heavens door 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

Pray for One Another’s

                                       

Pray for one another’s well-being, contentment, and protection. 1 Peter 3:9 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Praying for others is an important part of daily prayer. When we see others in need it is part of our Christian duty (duty is an act of love) to sincerely, continuously pray for them. Do not pray for them once and then forget about it but continually pray form them. It is also good for them to know you are praying for them. As well, ask them how things are going to see how effective your prayer is because in doing so you are reminding them that your prayer is constant because you care about them.

An added benefit is when you see someone who is not a Christian having difficulty and you inform them that you are praying for them. From my experience, they are always shocked. This is a great opportunity to share Jesus with them.

Do not take prayer lightly.

When you are a Christian you have a constant hot line that is never busy to our Heavenly Father and He listens and answers the righteous man or womans prayers.

The heartfelt and persistent prayer of a righteous man (believer) can accomplish much [when put into action and made effective by God—it is dynamic and can have tremendous power]. James 5:16 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

“Prayer has a way of blowing wind into other sails in your life that you might not even be praying about.” Adam Stadtmiller

Prayer: Please El Deah (God of knowledge) bless me with Your supreme knowledge of who to include in my daily morning prayers so that they will be used to the best effect. I humbly request this in the name of He who taught His disciples to proper manner in which to seek Thy favour Jesus Christ. Amen May

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

The Secret to Contentment Is

                                               

But godliness actually is a source of great gain when accompanied by contentment [that contentment which comes from a sense of inner confidence based on the sufficiency of God]. 1 Timothy 6:6 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

The only way to obtain contentment within us is to be blessed with the Holy Spirit’s indwelling in our heart.

Your dream job quickly becomes boring after a few months.

After the honeymoon is over there is still love but not constant contentment.

How much contentment is there in exercise? Oh your body may be in shape but how is your spirit? How much contentment is there in materialism? Very little from what I see.

Most times there is constant contentment in my heart (we all go through rough times in our lives where there is little contentment but when we pray Jehovah blesses us with contentment, peace and love).

Instead of constantly looking to change your circumstances why not find contentment in the unchanging love of the Holy Spirit?

He is always there and there is nothing to compare to His loving contentment He blesses us with.

“The secret to contentment is Christ in me, not a different set of circumstances.” Elisabeth Elliot

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Shalom (The Lord blesses with Peace) for blessing me with peace and contentment in Your daily provisions for me. These are priceless treasures that I daily cherish and thank you for. I sing praises unto Thy abundantly gracious name in the name of He who I am content to be with more than any and all others 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

When Folks Concentrate On

                                        

 Delight yourself in the Lord, And He will give you the desires and petitions of your heart. Psalm 37:4 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

We see it constantly (especially in the western countries) where folks foolishly go so deep into debt they will never get out of it. The end result is a lot of discontentment in their lives because they are slaves unto consumerism (which is a cruel master). There is no peace in their lives because they are constantly worried about paying off their debt. There is no love in their hearts because they are angry they are so far in debt. There certainly is no joy in their live because they lament over their pitiful state. The end result of this is a lot of physical sickness like ulcers and mental health. As well the heavy load of constant stress wears out their immune system so they are easy prey for any and all diseases that come their way.

When we are delighted in our loving relationship with Jehovah we do not need material stimulation to appease us. Our desires are to expand our loving relationship with Him and with others. This results in a life filled with contentment, love, joy and peace. As well, those who delight in our Lord have fewer sickness than those not in our Heavenly family because of Jehovahs peace, love and joy that reigns in our hearts.

When folks concentrate on Heavenly desires rather than earthly desires there is a lot more contentment, peace, love and joy in their lives. Joseph son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) for bountiful blessings of Your Heavenly treasure in my life and in my heart. They are the truest treasure of all. I praise You in the name of the greatest blessed treasure of all Jesus Christ. Amen

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

No Man Can Fulfill His Calling.

                                            

Just as each one of you has received a special gift [a spiritual talent, an ability graciously given by God], employ it in serving one another as [is appropriate for] good stewards of God’s multi-faceted grace [faithfully using the diverse, varied gifts and abilities granted to Christians by God’s unmerited favor]. 1 Peter 4:10 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

I remember so many in my younger years bragging that they did not need anybody. They only lived for themselves. Now that they are older and in need of help there is no one to help them and they have no one to love them. They are depressed, lonely folks whose daily life is a living Hell of loneliness.

I have seen so many use their God given talents to help others. Now that they are older and in need of help they are surrounded with folks falling all over them helping them. Their is a contented life filled with love, joy and peace.

Jehovah has endowed each of us with a special talent that is to be used in the community. To neglect that talent or to use it for your own selfish ends is indeed a great sin in our Heavenly Fathers eyes. Those who neglect to use it for their God given purpose pay dearly for it in their elder years.

When you surround yourself with nobody but yourself you end up with nobody but yourself. Joseph a son of Jehovah.  

No man can compass the ends of life by drawing a little line around himself upon the ground. No man can fulfill his calling as a Christian by seeking the welfare of his wife and family only, for these are only a sort of greater self.” Charles Spurgeon

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) for blessing me with plentiful opportunities to enrich myself with the most precious treasure of all, those of the heart, every day. In doing so I know I am also enriching Your heart which enriches my heart all the more. I exalt Thee in the name of my greatest treasure Jesus Christ. Amen.

Wishing you A house full of sunshine, Hearts full of cheer, Love that grows deeper each day of the year. Welsh blessing
