Flows From It.

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

 Your input determines your output.                                                   

In other words what you put into your mind determines how you behave. This affects your relationships, your mental and physical health.

The best input comes from the Bible and holy communion with Jehovah. They guard your heart and mind on righteousness while not imputing greed, hatred nor revenge which pollutes the heart and mind.

That is why it is important to have a thank you prayer every morning. It begins your day with a joyful disposition. The more grateful we are to Jehovah for all His blessings through out the day the less we are likely to become Negative Nellies.

It is also important to listen to Christian music instead of worldly music. Christian music points to a loving , grateful relationship with Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit while the worlds music is all about greed, lust and revenge. The first one helps in living a joyful, peace filled life, the second one leads to unfulfillment, anger and depression.

The same holds true for movies and TV series. What goes in must come out. With Christ it is the sweetness of love, joy, peace and Divine purpose. With the world it is the stench of filthy soul destroying selfishness.

Choose wisely if you want a good day, good life and a great eternal retirement home. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah RAB (The Lord my Nourisher) for blessing me with a smorgasbord of Heavenly delights to feast upon every day. I need these to continue to grow more mature into the Heavenly child You know I am capable of being. I thank you in the name of He whose companionship is the sweetest of delights Jesus Christ. Amen

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

It is Accomplished Through.

trust in God

 Now faith is the assurance (title deed, confirmation) of things hoped for (divinely guaranteed), and the evidence of things not seen [the conviction of their reality—faith comprehends as fact what cannot be experienced by the physical senses]. For by this [kind of] faith the men of old gained [divine] approval. By faith [that is, with an inherent trust and enduring confidence in the power, wisdom and goodness of God] we understand that the worlds (universe, ages) were framed and created [formed, put in order, and equipped for their intended purpose] by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things which are visible. Hebrews 11:1-3 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Faith is not something that is instantly instilled in us when we become Christians. It is only accomplished through a lot of failure. We all fall face down in our walk with Christ.

Satan is a master at instilling doubts which is the murderer of faith.

When we fail the Holy Spirit gently picks us up and teaches us again to have faith. Then when the tempter comes again we are stronger to resist his wicked wiles. It is accomplished through a lot of experience. When our faith is tested, we need to reflect back on Jehovahs deliverance, strength, guidance and resources to achieve complete and total victory.

That is why we need not only to be patient with baby Christians but to use our experiences to encourage them. It is accomplished through a personal experience with the Holy Trinity.

Finally, there of course, can be no victory without a loving obedient relationship with the supreme power of all faith Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. It is only through their blessing that have triumphant and powerful faith.

“I am inwardly fashioned for faith, not for fear.  Fear is not my native land; faith is.  I am so made that worry and anxiety are sand in the machinery of life; faith is the oil….  A Johns Hopkins University doctor says, ‘We do not know why it is that worriers die sooner than non-worriers, but that is a fact.’  But I who am simple of mind think I know;  We are inwardly constructed…for faith and not for fear.  God made us that way.  To live by worry is to live against reality.”Dr. Stanley Jones

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El Roi (You are the God who sees) for blessing me that You see everything in advance so know the best path for me to take in life even when it does not make sense to me at the time. I exalt You in the name of He whose light guides me unto Heavens gate Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Who Works In You.

HE HAS THE WORK PREPARED

For it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure. Philippians 2:12   New King James Version                                   

I believe we all have that time in our lives when we ask the question: why am I here? 

                                                                                        

Some go off on stupid treasure hunts for the meaning of life without God.

It will never be found.                                                                                    

When we sincerely request of our Lord what His mission is in our lives He will slowly (it may take years, it may take decades. For me I served Him in many capacities over thirty decades. Each service was preparing me for a bigger one he had in store for me) reveal it to us.                         

Do not forget that Moses was tending sheep in the wilderness for forty years before he received his calling In that time he learned how to tend sheep which was preparing him to be the Sheppard for the Israelites.           

It is in a long slow process that both our obedience and our faith grows stronger. 

                                                                                                  

One feeds the other.                                                                                        

As we obey and step out into the unknown having little faith, Jehovah reveals He is there to guide us. This builds our faith which prepares us for even greater challenges in which we are obedient to His next calling in our lives.                                                                                                      

Once this occurs we understand Gods divine providence for our being here which brings true satisfaction to our lives which is a great blessing.                                           

“It is a vain thought to flee from the work that God appoints us, for the sake of finding a greater blessing, instead of seeking it where alone it is to be found – in loving obedience.”  George Eliot

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Shammah (God is present) for being there to constantly guide me on the divine path You have prepared for me to travel in my obedient humble service to You which ultimately leads to the Heavenly home You have graciously prepared for me from before time began. I humbly thank you in the name of my gentle but strong Sheppard Jesus Christ. Amen.                                                                                                            

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

The Lifetime Education.

TRUTH

Show me Your ways, O Lord; Teach me Your paths. Lead me in Your truth and teach me, For You are the God of my salvation; On You I wait all the day. Psalm 25:4-5New King James Version

When you become a Christian you enter into a lifetime school and then some. Yes, even in Heaven, you will still be learning.

Reflecting back on my walk with Christ I am amazed at how little I knew about our Beloved, His plans for my life and the incredible love He shares with me.

He has led me through many professions, many countries and cities serving Him and revealing Himself to me. There has been many incredible journeys and adventures along the way.

I think that is one of the many things about the Christian life that fascinates me is just how much there is to learn.

 

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rabbi (God our teacher) for the truly amazing adventures and insight into You, our relationship and Your divine purpose for my life You have abundantly blessed me with. I give thanks for the numerous blessings in the name of He who is the best teacher of all Jesus Christ. Amen.

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