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

His Own Spirit

WORK HARD OR ELSE

Whoever has no rule over his own spirit is like a city broken down, without walls. Proverbs 25: 28 New King James Version

A city with no walls was an easy target in ancient times. The enemy could easily conquer it.

So too it is with our own will power.

Yes we are to depend upon Jehovah for strength but that does not mean we are to be wussies and solely depend upon Him.

There are times when we have to have backbone and stand up for what is right even if we stand alone.

This has occurred many times in my life and I was branded a trouble maker. It did not matter to me

It is better to sacrifice popularity than to suffer the consequences of no morals. Joseph- Anthony: Green.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Jireh (God our provider) bless me with provision to always stand by Your holy morals even when there may be severe consequences for it. I humbly ask this in the name of He who never surrendered His morals to anyone even though it made His hated and rejected Jesus Christ. Amen                                                         

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

What am I going to do?

“With Him are wisdom and strength, He has counsel and understanding. Job 12:13 New King James Version

What am I going to do, depend upon You.

When you have offended someone and you know you need to apologize and you just do not have it in you, that is when you need to sincerely pray to Jehovah to bless you with the wisdom, grace and meekness of the Holy Spirit to help you.

Now that does not mean that the Holy Spirit will do all the work, you have to put forward the effort. Nor does it mean it will be easy.

Swallowing pride is the hardest thing to swallow. Joseph- Anthony: Green

It is the same thing when someone has hurt you bad and you know you need to forgive them but do not have it in you to do it. They may not even care whether you have forgiven them but it is very good for both your spiritual, mental and physical health. That is a proven medical fact about the mental and physical. I have seen more than a few who have sacrificed their physical and mental health on the alter of bitterness and grudges.

Holding onto anger and hurt only hurts you more than the one who offended you. Joseph- Anthony: Green

When you have six men or women telling you to do this and six telling you to do the opposite what are you going to do?  I went through times when I thought it only to drive me crazy in my teens going through this.

You depend upon Jehovah through prayer and many times seeking good Christian counselling.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah KalEl (voice of God) for Your gracious gift of abundant wisdom, meekness and grace that has brought me through many mazes in life and healed many wounds, both that were caused by me and by those inflicted upon by me. I give glorious thanks for this blessing and humbly request it continuance through He who healed many and always gave the best advice when He walked amongst us Jesus Christ. Amen.

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