Our Hearts Dance with Delight and Praise.

HEART OF GRATITUDE

Weeping may last through the night but joy comes with the morning. Psalm 30:5 The Holy Bible New Living Translation

When we are sad, discouraged and or heavy burdened it seems as if clouds of darkness envelope us in the darkest of darkness.

Yet, when the Lord come to help us, encourage us and lifts that burden from our shoulders when we surrender to them, the dark clouds dissipate and flutter away. They are replaced with the sunshine of Jehovahs love and joy which make our hearts dance with delight and praise.

“The greater my knowledge of the goodness and grace of God on my life, the more likely I am to praise Him in the storm.” Matt Chandler

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) Judges 6:12 for blessing me with Your encouragement, strength, comfort and guidance not just in the dark days but in all my days. Thank is one of the greatest blessings there can ever be. I exalt You in the name of my most cherished blessing 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.

Prayers for Caregivers-A Prayer to Speak With

loving to each other

A Prayer to Speak with Love and Respect

Jesus looked at them intently and said, “Humanly speaking, it is impossible. But not with God. Everything is possible with God.” Mark 10:27 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

My Love please bless me with the ability to communicate with those You have placed in my care in a manner in which they will understand what I am saying.

Please bless me with the ability to understand what they are trying to communicate with me.

Please my Beloved bless me that You will guide my words this day to bring encouragement and love.

Please strengthen me to bide my tongue to not lash out with hurtful words when disputes erupt. When the fires start to flare when they are being stubborn and obstinate, please bless me to close my eyes and to call out unto You to bring peace into the conversation.

And with the wisdom to know when to walk away because of the futility in the conversation.

Bless me with the ability to come back later and speak with respectful authority to which they must succumb to.

Please bless us to be loving and respectful towards each other as You and I are loving and respectful towards each other.

I humbly request this in the name of He whose speech was always respectful and loving Jesus Christ. Amen

Prayers for Caregivers-A Prayer for Patience

GODS HELP

 May God, who gives this patience and encouragement, help you live in complete harmony with each other, as is fitting for followers of Christ Jesus. Romans 15:5 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

My Beloved, I humbly beseech You to bless me this day with abundance of patience. This days calling upon my body, mind and spirit are great.

Patience is a virtue which only You can pour out upon me as rain is pour out upon the parched land. No matter the difficult task nor the wearing of my patience by those in my care please bless me with Your Divine patience.

The load placed upon the caregivers shoulder is heavy and demanding. It can only be accomplished by Your Divine patience.

I believe You will bless me all that is required to excel at these demanding tasks this day, but especially with patience.

May I be as patient with those in my care this day as You are with me every day.

I humbly beseech You and thank You for granting my petition in the name of He who excelled in patience with His disciples Jesus Christ. Amen

Be Careful of the Words You

 For you will be treated as you treat others. The standard you use in judging is the standard by which you will be judged. Matthew 7:2 Holy Bible, New Living Translation

Be careful of the words you say to someone today (especially the young ones), it may affect them the rest of their lives.

I grew up with very strong negative inputs in my life. I was constantly reminded of what a failure I was and that nothing was going to come of me. After moving away from these Negative Neliies it took me many decades to gain confidence in myself and that I was not a failure. The Holy Spirit had His work cut out with me. I like to say that I have succeeded in life in spite of those around me not because of them.

The good thing about this is that I was extremely sensitive to my children when a teacher.

No, I did not give them false beliefs like so many today that they can accomplish anything they desire and put their mind to. I did explain to them that sometimes there are things you cannot do but that does not make you a failure.

I did not puff them up when they succeeded but did praise and encourage them to expand their skills and knowledge from a sincere heart for their good.

They knew it and loved teacher for it.

I often wonder just how much I influenced their lives for good by my example.

And just remember this: what goes around, comes around. As you do unto others, so too will it be done back unto you. I have seen it oh so many times and believe me, it ain’t pretty.

“It is easier to ridicule than commend.” — Thomas Fuller

Prayer: Please Jehovah Ghmolah (The God of Recompense) put a lock on my lips when filth is about to be spewed from it and open it wide when sweet words of encouragement are about to flow from it. I deeply desire my speech to emulate Yours with whom have spoken so encouragingly to me. May I encourage others as You have me. I meekly request this in Your beautiful sons name who spoke so eloquently, like I deeply desire to, Jesus Christ. Amen

May the light of Christs love shine brightly in your heart today and every day

It is Impossible for a Christian

A STOUT HEART

This is why we work hard and continue to struggle, for our hope is in the living God. 1 Timothy 4:10 Holy Bible, New Living Translation

It is impossible for a Christian to give up. We all work hard at being acceptable children to our Heavenly Father.

Yes there are going to be constant struggles.

Christianity is one war that continues until we reach Heavens gate. Just when one battle is finished and we rest a little another one begins. So many times we feel exhausted and defeated. We desire to give it all up and walk away. But, as Christians when we go before our Heavenly Father, He blesses us with strength, wisdom and the weapons to continue the fight. The longer we are in this battle the stronger our hope is in our Heavenly Father.

Now hope here is not the same as hoping to win the lottery. Rather it means confidence in Our Heavenly Fathers care, provision and deliverance and the eternal Heavenly home He has prepared for us.

“God never promises to remove us from our struggles. He does promise, however, to change the way we look at them.” — Max Lucado

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Ori (the Lord is my Light) for enlightening me with Divine insight into the reason for the constant battles that must be fought on a daily basis in every Christians life ( including mine). This gift encourages me on when all seems lost to victory which glorifies You. I joyously praise You in the name of He whose empty grave brought eternal victory to oh so many. Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with abundant joy in your heart filled with love and your life overflowing with laughter every day this year.

For All Live in Family Care Givers

CHRISTS STRENGTH

 Speaking not only from my own experience but from listening to those  who are caring for their elder parents they receive nothing but continuous slaps in the face for their loving care. Then when many of the adult children are mentally and physically exhausted and put the parents into a seniors home the parents cry baby and try to blame the children all the while refusing to take responsibility for their own actions. Add to that that the care givers seldom receive any help from their siblings who are usually leeches. The only time they call the parent is when they want money from them.

It seems to me that the most ungrateful folks are the ones that need the help the most yet abuse those who are helping them. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Although this may seem like a curse it is in reality a blessing.

Because, it is in our hard times that we grow the closest to Jehovah and develop the deepest of love, respect and appreciation for Him. Here are some words of encouragement and strength from our loving, caring Father when we feel beaten down by the ungrateful abusive behaviour of those we are helping.

Whatever you do [whatever your task may be], work from the soul [that is, put in your very best effort], as [something done] for the Lord and not for men. Colossians 3:23 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Let us not grow weary or become discouraged in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap, if we do not give in. Galatians 6:9 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

“God never made a promise that was too good to be true.” — Dwight L. Moody

Therefore, those who are ill-treated and suffer in accordance with the will of God must [continue to] do right and commit their souls [for safe-keeping] to the faithful Creator. 1 Peter 4:19 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

 “Where God’s finger points, there God’s hand will make a way.”

Prayer: Oh Jehovah ‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) I cannot praise You enough for Your wonderful love, strength, provision, comfort, healing, wisdom and encouragement to continue on being obedient unto Your command;If a widow has children or grandchildren, these should learn first of all to put their religion into practice by caring for their own family and so repaying their parents and grandparents, for this is pleasing to God. 1 Timothy 5:4 Holy Bible, New International Version. Please comfort those who, because of the selfishness, brutish behaviour and contempt of their aged parents or grand parents towards the care givers they cannot endure the contemptuous behaviour any more and have to put them in a seniors home. Do not allow the wicked parents or grand parents to put a guilt trip on the adult children. It is their own fault they are where they are. I exalt You and humbly beseech You in the name of He who is loving and the Supreme Judge Jesus Christ. Amen

May Christ bless you with love, joy and peace today and every day.

The Most Important Ministry is That Of

pray for each other

 “Hear my prayer, O Lord, and listen to my cry; Do not be silent at my tears” Psalm 39:12 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Some folks use the out that they are now made for service whether as a missionary, teacher or any capacity with in the church.

Nice try.

One of the most important ministry is that of prayer. It only needs to be heart felt and sincere. You do not need go to any seminary to learn it. You need no special equipment (except a quiet room, and sincere heart).

Go on web sites like: https://joyfmradio.net/make-a-request/submit-a-prayer-request, https://www.praise1065.com/prayer-requests/, http://prayer-center.upperroom.org/prayer-wall, http://nationalprayerbank.com/Pages/Pray-For-Others/ to name just a few.

A good line of thought though is to find someone who is going through the same situation (and we all have our problems). Write their name down on a piece of paper and what the problems is.

Then, include them in your morning prayers. Have no more than five (you do not want to spend the day on your knees). It would be an excellent form of ministry for brothers and sisters to participate in that are living in seniors homes.

Prayer is a hidden ministry that brings forth fruit through which the Father is glorified.”Oswald Chambers

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Abba (God our Father) for blessing me with an appropriate list of brothers and sisters to pray for to encourage them, comfort them and strengthen them in a minute way compared to You. I exalt You in the name of He who prayed for others even though He knew what was awaiting Him during his trial and execution 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
