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

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.

When a People Forget God

                                        

For the time will come when people will not tolerate sound doctrine and accurate instruction [that challenges them with God’s truth]; but wanting to have their ears tickled [with something pleasing], they will accumulate for themselves [many] teachers [one after another, chosen] to satisfy their own desires and to support the errors they hold.2 Timothy 4:3 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

We do not live in a free society in the west anymore.

So many have turned their backs upon Jehovah and refuse to listen to Him. Indeed they are very offended by righteous morals. Yes there is absolute right and absolute wrong and it can only be found in the Bible.

We see law after law suppressing our rights to appease wicked men and women. In society today we see very little of good morals (it is all about me and it is not my fault is todays mantra).

We have a legal system but not a justice system.

There is no moderation it is buy, buy, buy. All the time going deeper into debt and becoming slaves to the big banks.

There is no frugality today. No one saves for the hard times and then cries for the government or mom or dads ATM to rescue them.

We see everybody screaming about how they have their rights but few talking about how they have their responsibility.

Be fare warned.

History does repeat itself.

Look at the past to see what is coming our way real soon.

Do not forget that the roaring twenties was preceded by the dirty thirties. Look at what has happened in every society when they became liberal and what happened to them (hint, it was not pretty nor pleasurable).

Bad men cannot make good citizens. It is impossible that a nation of infidels or idolaters should be a nation of freemen. It is when a people forget God that tyrants forge their chains. A vitiated state of morals, a corrupted public conscience, is incompatible with freedom. No free government, or the blessings of liberty, can be preserved to any people but by a firm adherence to justice, moderation, temperance, frugality, and virtue; and by a frequent recurrence to fundamental principles” Patrick Henry

Prayer: Please Jehovah KalEl (voice of God) bless me to be a voice into this sewer of filthy sin that premeats our society today to bring them into Your Holy government which is the Supreme government. I humbly request this in the name of He who is the Righteous King of all governments 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

Will Surely Suffer

                                             

He who puts up security and guarantees a debt for an outsider will surely suffer [for his foolishness],
But he who hates (declines) being a guarantor is secure [from its penalties]. Proverbs 11:15
Holy Bible Amplified Version

This is something you need to consider before you co-sign for anything.

I know many elderly folks who have co-signed loans for their childrens house and or a new car. The children refuse to pay the loan and the parents are stuck paying it for them, many times including having to sell their own homes ( I do not know how anybody can live with themselves doing that).

Before you co-sign anything do a thorough back ground check on them.

Now of course they can line up scam artists to lie for them.

But, be wise and go to the truest Character reference there is.

His name is Jehovah and with Him there is no secrets.

When He reveals the truth to you stand by His choice on whether to co-sign or not. It will prevent a lot of financial hardship and bad feelings in the family and with good time friends.

Yes family is the worst offenders.

If they are not reliable DO NOT CO-SIGN. If they get pouty just stand firm and inform them that their credit from past experiences is substandard. Come back when you have learnt to grow up ( and how can they grow up if you keep on bailing them out?).

If that means cutting ties with them, good riddance to bad rubbish.

I know from a lot of bad experiences myself and by life is better off without them in it.

I have met many who when you have money they are your best friends. When the money runs out I am a stranger to them. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah-Ganan (The Lord is Our Defense) bless me with Your Divine defense of wisdom and strength to protect myself from the scheming wiles of free loaders which would bankrupt me if they could while giving nothing in return. I humbly request this in the name of He who always exposed evil leeches Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

The Flesh Counts for Nothing.

DLEICATE RED  ROSE PEDALS

The Spirit gives life; the flesh counts for nothing. John 6:63 New International Version

The flesh becomes old, it breaks down. Your faith in your abilities is faulty.

That which brings you pleasure today brings you debt tomorrow (going in debt to buy expensive cars you cannot afford, getting mortgages for houses you cannot afford).   Joseph- Anthony: Green

At some time you will look at it and realize it cannot and will not love you in return.

“The knowledge of Christ’s love for us should cause us to love Him in such a way that it is demonstrated in our attitude, conduct, and commitment to serve God. Spiritual maturity is marked by spiritual knowledge being put into action.” — Edward Bedore

Having a relationship with our beloved Father in Heaven brings constant renewal and strength. As we grow deeper in this divine relationship we cannot help but love and respect our Beloved more and more and want to please Him more and more. The way we please Him is seen in our attitude, our beliefs and commitments.

“Measure not men by Sundays, without regarding what they do all the week after.” Thomas Fuller

 

The more we know Him and love Him the more He will light our paths of life. We put this knowledge into action as an act of not just obedience but as an act of love.

Listen, my son, and be wise, and set your heart on the right path. Proverbs 23:19 New International Version

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Elohim (God our creator) for blessing me with the greatest tutor of all, the Holy Spirit, to create a loving obedient child of Yours. I praise You in he name of Your most obedient son Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Where Your Heart Goes

WORSHIP CONSCIENCE

Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it. Proverbs 4:23New International Version

If you have unresolved anger in your heart it will affect not just your physical well being but will affect your relationships in your family, with your friends and classmates and co-workers.

If you are proud you become arrogant and that affects your interpersonal relationships.

If you are in love with yourself you will end up with no one but yourself. Joseph- Anthony: Green

 

If you are materialistic it will make you very sad and a slave to consumerism and put you into debt of which you will never free yourself from.

Most important of all if you suffer from any of these afflictions it will affect your most treasured relationship, that of Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit.

Where your heart goes, your feet follow Joseph- Anthony: Green

The best way to prevent yourself from falling into one these destructive trait is to daily nurture yourself in your relationship with them. We do this by reading their Word to us, by obeying it and by daily prayer.

Prayer: Please Holy Spirit my guidance councilor guide me away from destructive forces and guide me in walking with Your Heavenly will. In the name of He who guided His heart and lead by example Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

The Two Pronged Attack

“Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal.  Matthew 6:19 New King James Version

DEPARTING DEVILS

 

Here is the two pronged attack Satan uses on us:

One Lucifer gets us so interested in gaining material things to keep up with the Jones that puts men and women deeply in debt. 

We grow exhausted in being slaves to a debt that will never be repaid.                           

Every increased possession leads us to new weariness. John Ruskin                                                          

That brings the second attack:                                                                                          

Then you are so busy working to pay off the debt and worrying about it that you neglect time with Jehovah in daily Bible reading and praying and enjoying all the beauty around us that He graciously abundantly blesses us with.                                

I find it funny when taking photos. Many people look at me like I am weird because they see me taking photos of the simple things all around us. I explain the simple beauty in the object and it is as if their eyes are open and they look at me in amazement and say: You know, I walk past that every day to work and never paid any attention to it.”                                                                                                     

When you notice nature, you see Gods handiwork. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Please Jesus Pyrrand (Jesus my friend) bless me to always esteem our loving relationship higher than any material thing that only brings me emptiness and a slave to debt. In Your cherished name I do request this most treasured blessing. Amen.

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