I Never Blame Anyone in My Life.

I never blame anyone in my life. Good people bless me with happiness. Bad people bless me with experience. Worst people bless me with a lesson. And best people bless me with memories.

F-E-A-R has two meanings: ‘Forget Everything And Run’ or ‘Face Everything And Rise.’ The one will enslave you while the other matures you. The choice is yours.

There are always people in my life who treat me wrong. I am grateful to them because they drive me into Jesus’ loving arms and we grow ever closer because of the abusers.

Our most painful experiences blesses us with the most important lessons in life. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Failure is my teacher, not my accuser. I have matured more and learned more in failures than in successes. That is why I am grateful for my failures. Many times failure is a detour, not a dead-end street.

The problem with pity parties is very few people come, and those who do don’t bring presents. It is time to put on the big girl or big boy panties and grow up.

The more I am grateful for what I have, the more I will have to be grateful for.

When I am sincere, praise is effective. When I am insincere, it is manipulative.

The most important persuasion tool I have in my entire arsenal is The Holy Spirit’s guidance and my obedience. Unless I have a heart that is willing and obedient unto The Holy Spirit, I will never realize the maximum potential that lies within me.

The greatest of all mistakes is to not trust and obey The Holy Spirit because I think I can only do a little. He knows my capability better than I do.

I remember that failure is an event, not a person.

Everybody says they want to be free. There is no freedom. You are either a slave to a devil or an obedient child of Jehovah. One curses with constant misery while the other blesses with Divine love. The Holy Spirit is the most influential person I will talk to all day.

People often say motivation doesn’t last. Neither does bathing. That is why it is recommended I go to the best motivator every day. His name is Jesus.

The foundation stones for a successful, meaningful life is prayer, Bible reading, having good Christian mentors and obedience unto The Holy Spirits guidance.

May the Holy Spirit guide you to a successful, meaningful life all the way to Heavens Gate. Joseph a son of Jehovah

He Instructed Me To

Do not say, “I’ll pay you back for this wrong!” Wait for the Lord, and he will avenge you.” Proverbs 20:22 The Holy Bible, The New International Version

I may get in trouble for saying this but in my experience it is true.

When someone does a woman wrong in their eyes they are very spiteful and will do anything they can to make your life pure living Hell. Therefore they need to take heed of this verse.

Before I was a mature Christian if someone crossed me look out. I was the most devious, cruel creature you had ever met when I got my pound of flesh.

Then, one day the Lord spoke to me and educated me that I was playing god when I met out the punishment for those who offended me. He instructed me to leave vengeance in His hands because He knows if the culprit did it intentionally or not.

There is nothing like getting someone back who did the offence unintentionally. Boy, there is a lot of egg on the face then and a innocent suffers which is even worse).

He knows the offender and so knows how to met out the appropriate punishment. I have seen His strong arm met out punishment and it brought out terror in my heart because I knew that could be me if when convicted by the Holy Spirit I refuse to repent.

Revenge is best left in Jehovahs hands. He knows how to deliver true justice. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El Gemuwal ( Jeremiah 51:56 The LORD GOD of Recompenses ) for blessing me with burning off of the dross of having a revengeful heart.

Although it is difficult at times I know that true justice will be served in Your time and in Your way.

During this time of waiting for Your justice to be delivered please bless the offender to come to their senses and repent of their crime so they do not have to suffer because of it.

I gratefully thank You and humbly request this in the name of He who washes the filthiest sins away from the repentant heart, Jesus Christ. Amen

Christ blesses us with love, peace and joy. May you be blessed with many opportunities to share these with others today.   Joseph a son of Jehovah

And Then What?

This is good and pleases God our Savior, who wants everyone to be saved and to understand the truth. 1 Timothy 2:3-4 The Holy Bible, The New Life Version

I have encountered too many Christians that are determined to save the world.

Yeah, and then what?

Well, then they say praise Jesus when someone accepts Christ as their Saviour and then walk away.

That is like asking Jehovah to bless you with a child and when the baby is born the parents walk away.

How are they going to learn to live like Christians if you are not prepared to mentor them?

How are they going to learn to serve their King if you do not teach them?

No, that is not someone elses job, you brought them to Christ, now you are to educate them. This is a huge commitment that is going to take a long time, effort and suffering on your behalf. If you are not prepared to make that commitment then just shut up. You do more damage than any good because the newbies are left hanging out to dry and walk away from Jesus feeling angry and bitter towards both Him and His followers.

Bringing one to Jesus is only half of the equation. You must also teach them about Jesus. You must teach them to conform to His will. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah Immanuel (God is with us John 15:1-27 ) bless me to always be there for anybody that You bless me with the privledge of bringing them into Your Holy family as You are always there for me.

I humbly request this in the name of He who always walked with His disciples when He journeyed this earth Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be a blessing unto others as Christ has been a blessing unto you. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Holy Spirit El Deah

God’s way is perfect. All the Lord’s promises prove true. He is a shield for all who look to him for protection. Psalm 18:30 The Holy Bible, The New Living Testament

Prayer: Please my Heavenly Poppa. give me Your Holy Spirit El Deah ( God of knowledge. Romans 11:33 ) to comfort, guide, and teach me to live a holy life.

Because of this I know you will protect me from the evil ones that lurk like vipers to attack me.

Thank you Holy Spirit for all of the abundant knowledge You have blessed me with and the help to transform me into a wise servant of our Heavenly King Jesus by putting into practice the knowledge You have shared with me.

I humbly beseech Thee Poppa and gratefully thank you Holy Spirit in the name of the wisest of them all Jesus Christ. Amen.”

May you always be receptive and obedient unto the Holy Spirits mentoring. Joseph a son of Jehovah

To My Dear Cherished

In the morning, O Lord, I will direct my song and my prayer unto You and will look up. (Psalm 5:3)

To My dear cherished Poppa : Good morning Poppa This is the day that You have made and I rejoice and be glad for the gift of it.

With gratitude, I thank You for preserving my life for one more day.

With gratitude, I thank you for Your ultimate gift of love for me, in the form of Your Son and the sacrifice of His life on my behalf. Because of this overwhelming gift that I often cannot comprehend, I humbly submit to You.

I know Lord, that I am a mere human and cannot instruct You, but you Lord bless me with The Holy Spirit to instruct me.

So teach me Your ways that I may rely on Your steadfast faithfulness. Teach me to number my days and to use my time wisely. I don’t know what this day holds, but I know that You hold the day.

It was you that laid the foundations of the Earth and therefore understands every part of it. I know that you keep the sun in the sky, the stars in place, and have created this Earth for me to inhabit and enjoy.

Throughout this day, may I be always be keenly aware of Your presence in everything I do – as I commute to work, drop children off at school, keep house and speak with my neighbors.

May my life be a living example and may others see Christ in me.

There are many that are hurting in this world – may I be a salve to someone today Lord, in a way that I can’t even imagine.

May my words be seasoned with salt and minister grace to all that hear.

May my actions be aligned with your Word.

I pray for wisdom that is peaceable, gentle, and approachable, with lots of mercy and fairness. You said an unlimited supply of wisdom is available to me if I simply ask, I so humbly request for wisdom to know how to deal with the many people and situations that will cross my path.

I pray for protection throughout this day; protect from harm and evil; go before me, to the left and right of me and behind me. Guide my steps so that I walk worthy of Your calling throughout this day. May I always be sensitive to Your promptings – whether it shows up as a gentle tug or a strong conviction. I pray for reconciliation in families, in nations and to You.

I pray that all may come to know you and be reconciled back to You.

Poppa, you know my faults and my flaws, please forgive me for being unkind with my words and my thoughts; forgive me for being self-serving; forgive me for holding on to old wounds instead of giving them to You.

Please forgive me, Poppa. When I am overwhelmed, confused, unsure, and restless, help me run to Your Word, The Holy Bible.

May your Word come alive to me so that it is a living guide in every situation I encounter this day.

Help me, Poppa, to remember the promises of your Word and bring the right passage to my remembrance for the situation I encounter. I acknowledge Poppa that I need to spend more time with You reading and praying so that I am prepared for whatever the day brings. Poppa I know that your Word is indeed a light unto my feet and a light unto the path You have chosen for me to walk this day .

Please remove fear and anxiety. from my heart and mind . As believers You have not given me a spirit of fear, but of love power and a sound mind. So when I are fearful, please remind me of Your love for me and use that love as the impetus to love others and see situations differently; may I tap into the power that you have given me, for I am never alone because You have not left me comfortless.

May Your wisdom be the underpinnings for my sound mind.

May I remember that I do not have to be anxious and when I am tempted to be anxious or worrisome, may I verbalize my concerns to you and then leave them there as You taught me to do. Worry does me no good and limits me, and You do more with my worry than I ever could. So please help me to turn all of my anxious thoughts and nerve-wracking situations over to You; to truly do that and trust that You are working. That You are working all things together for my good because You love me; that You are working in ways that I cannot comprehend because Your ways always supersede mine. And that in this working You are molding me continually into masterpieces fit for Your use.

Thank You for increasing my faith and capacity to love You by being loving towards others just as You are loving towards me.

As a child of yours Lord, I know that I am Your masterpiece though sometimes I feel so far from it. Please help me to remember my worth in You when I’m faced with challenging situations.

When I feel depressed, help me to remember that I am fearfully and wonderfully made in Your image , a replica of You and that You loved me so much You thought that I was worth dying for.

I do not know anyone that would die for me, but Your beautiful Son, my best friend did, and I’m eternally grateful and humbled for His supreme gift of love towards me.

For the unseen, Poppa, I thank you. You are beyond understanding, You are abundant, you are mine, and I am Yours. I totally and completely submit everything in my life to You today,

I humbly request this in the name of He who humbly went to the cross for me, Jesus Christ. Amen.

May your heart, mind and feet walk hand in hand with Christ this day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

So Too Will You Become

But if you remain in me and my words remain in you, you may ask for anything you want, and it will be granted! John 15:7 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Do you see the two important parts to this verse?

The first part is to remain in Jehovah. That means to have a continuous loving relationship with Him.

If someone only comes to you when they want something and give nothing in return, why would you even look at them much less grant them their desires. They are nothing more than users and abusers.

The same is true of Jehovah.

Why would He grant you your desires if you have no desire to be in a loving relationship with Him?

The second part is obeying His words.

So if the Bible, His words, tells you not to do something, like participate in homosexuality, and you do why would you expect anything from Him.

If the Bible, His word tells you to do something, like forgive someone who has offended you, why should you expect Him to grant your petition to Him?

Now it is okay to ask for personal requests like healing from a physical ailment but keep centered on the spiritual.

As Jehovah is spiritual so too will you become more spiritual than worldly in your daily life and your prayer requests. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah El-Deah ( God of knowledge.Romans 11:33 ) send the best mentor there is, the Holy Spirit to teach me the proper manner in which to conduct myself as a loving obedient child of Yours. I have a deep desire to draw ever closer with You with each and every breath. I humbly beseech You in the name of Your most precious son who was obedient towards You all the way to the horrifying cross, Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Boy is That Ever True.

 “There will always be temptations to sin, but what sorrow awaits the person who does the tempting!” Luke 17:1 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

There was a TV show back in the day that when someone did something bad the main character would always say: “ God will get you for that.”

Boy is that ever true.

Many decades have past since I was a gullible teen (and I thank Jehovah He protected me from the scam artists).

Those that tried to tempt me into doing drugs, having premarital sex, getting drunk all the time just to mention a few are complete and total wrecks. Their bodies are shot, their minds are shot. They live in horrible abject poverty. In their time they lived the high life, many admired them and followed them. They are not so cool now.

You can do as you like with your body but you will also pay the price for it. Joseph a son of Jehovah

I tremble at what so many school teachers, homosexuals and others are going to get when they preach their lies to impressionable children.

Prayer: Thank you Holy Spirit Tsuri (Psalms 19:14 O LORD My Strength ) for blessing me with the strength to resist temptation. Yes the apple looks enticing when it is presented but it is really a deadly poison which destroys, mind, body and spirit when indulged in. I praise You in the name of He who resisted the devil when He was at His weakest, Jesus Christ. AMEN

May Christ bless you with love, joy and peace today and every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

There is No Sense Learning Them

As I learn your righteous regulations, I will thank you by living as I should! Psalm 119:7 The Holy Bible The New Living Translation

Righteous: acting in an moral way and virtuous manner ( Moral: founded on the fundamental principles of right conduct rather than on legalities, enactment, or custom, concerned with the principles or rules of right conduct or the distinction between right and wrong; ethical) ( Virtuous: conforming to moral and ethical principles; morally excellent; upright ) Dictionary. com

We are to be grateful for the blessing of being adopted into Jehovahs family.

The best manner of doing this is to live as He desires us to be. To accomplish this we must emulate Christs demeanour.

We need the Holy Spirit to teach us morality (although we all know right from wrong in its basics, He takes us ever deeper into it). As well as the tools to live it out in our daily life. As this new creation in Christ takes form in our mental, physical and spiritual being we become more and more virtuous.

This is not a one off experience but rather a lifetime commitment.

I have been following Christ for decades and He is still transforming me.

We are a work in progress all the way up to Heavens Gate where Christ will perfect us into the beautiful creation Jehovah intends for s to be. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Now, to the world that walks in darkness, this is extremely offensive. It is great to see someone walk with these qualities as long as they do not step upon that individuals toes.

When you are welcomed into Jehovahs family, you will be bitterly rejected by satans family including your family and old friends. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Believe me I have had plenty of experience where the very same man or woman that commends me for behavior with another becomes extremely offended and offensive when the same situation happens between them and me.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Tsidkenu (Jeremiah 23:6 The LORD Our Righteousness( for blessing me with teaching me Your inflatable righteousness and guiding me in the manner in which to incorporate it into my daily life. Thank you for helping me live this life even when it goes against the current of the politically correct in this world. I know Your righteousness leads to a more secure and better life that leads all the way to the Heavenly home You have lovingly prepared for me. I exalt You in the name of He who I love to emulate in righteous living Jesus Christ. Amen

May Christ bless you with love, joy and peace today and every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

In the Stormy Billows

We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance.  And endurance develops strength of character Romans 5:3-4 The Holy Bible, The New Living Testament Version

It is in the storms of life we grow the most. Joseph a son of Jehovah

We grow in dependence upon Jehovah for delivery of our trials and tribulations.

We grow the most in the skills and strength He blesses us with to conquer the storms no matter how much they rage in or lives.

This is why I believe the education system in the west and the momma bears would pamper their children are doing a severe dis-service to their children. By sheltering them through the hard times they nurture spinless, entitled momma boys and girls who are unprepared for the world when they leave the nest. This is the major reason there is so much cry babying in society today in the west. The young feel entitled and expect the government to pamper them like mommy and their teachers did.

“Talents are best nurtured in solitude: character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.” Goethe

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Elohim Ozer Li (Psalms 54:4 GOD My Helper) for blessing me with Your saving help whenever the storms are too great for me to conquer. Thank you for helping me to defeat the raging storms when You know I need to and can defeat them on my own. I praise You in the name of He who calmed the raging storm for His disciples on that lake Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Why We Need To.

 All the Holy Writings are God-given and are made alive by Him. Man is helped when he is taught God’s Word. It shows what is wrong. It changes the way of a man’s life. It shows him how to be right with God. It gives the man who belongs to God everything he needs to work well for Him. 2 Timothy 3:16-17 The Holy Bible, The New Life Version

GODS GUIDEBOOK

This is why we need to remember the Bible: The Bible is Jehovahs word. It is how He speaks to us.

It is like poppa directing every aspect of our lives to be children worthy to be called His treasured children.

Remember the things of long ago. For I am God, and there is no other. I am God, and there is no one like Me. Isaiah 46:9 The Holy Bible, The New Life Version

Reading the Bible every day reminds us of how Jehovah was faithful to those who belong to Him in the past. With this knowledge we are confident He will always be faithful to us.

Now for those of us that walked with Him for a while we need to recollect how He has been faithful in the past in our lives and share these encouraging events with those who are weak and new to the Walk.

When He had given thanks, He broke it and said,“Take this bread and eat it. This is My body which is broken for you. Do this to remember Me.” 1 Corinthians 11:24 The Holy Bible, The New Life Version

Reading of Christ’s crucifixion should bring tears to our eyes. Tears of gratitude for such an amazing sacrifice on our behalf. We should be thanking Him every single day. We also need to thank Him that because of His resurrection, we have been resurrected from the physical to the Heavenly Spiritual. We have been changed from suffering in the world which only leads to death to the glorious eternal communion with the Heavenly trinity which has prepared an awesome home for us.

“Can a woman forget her nursing child? Can she have no pity on the son to whom she gave birth? Even these may forget, but I will not forget you. See, I have marked your names on My hands. Your walls are always before Me. Isaiah 49:15-16 The Holy Bible, The New Life Version

Reading the Bible helps us remember that no matter how terrifying the storms or dark the day, He has not forgotten us. Indeed, He is walking with us through it all. Reading the Bible every day helps us to have confidence that Jehovah is using these experiences to mould us to be the holy children He created us to be.

The Helper is the Holy Spirit. The Father will send Him in My place. He will teach you everything and help you remember everything I have told you. John 14:26 The Holy Bible, The New Life Version

Reading the Bible helps us remember that we have a Divine Helper who loves us and only wants what is best for us, we need only be attentive and obedient unto His voice.

Again, as we mature in the Walk, we become metamorphosed with the Holy Spirit. He is as much a part of us as our heart or lungs. We need to use these experiences to comfort and encourage those that are not as mature as us.

Your Word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. Psalm 119:105 The Holy Bible, The New Life Version

We live in a very dark world, how else are we to follow the light to our Heavenly home without reading the words that come from the Light to Heaven every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

follow your ways

Prayer: I thank You Jehovah El Emeth (Psalms 31:5 LORD GOD of Truth) for blessing me with the most nutritious breakfast, snack through out the day and bed time snack before laying down to sleep, Your Holy Word, the Bible. It nourishes my mental, physical and spiritual well being as well as helps me continue to grow into the beautiful child You intend for me to be. I praise You in the name of He who always provided the best feast for His disciples, Jesus Christ. Amen

Whatever is beautiful, whatever is meaningful, whatever brings you joy, may you be blessed with an abundance of it this every day this year. Joseph a son of Jehovah
