What Will Happen To

exquisite pink rose being gently caressed by raindrops

The godly can look forward to a reward, while the wicked can expect only judgment. Give freely and become more wealthy; be stingy and lose everything. The generous will prosper; those who refresh others will themselves be refreshed. If you search for good, you will find favor; but if you search for evil, it will find you! Trust in your money and down you go! But the godly flourish like leaves in spring. Those who bring trouble on their families inherit the wind. The fool will be a servant to the wise. The seeds of good deeds become a tree of life; a wise person wins friends. If the righteous are rewarded here on earth, what will happen to wicked sinners? Proverbs 11:23-31 The Holy Bible New Living Translation

One day while volunteering with a Christian organization delivering furniture to the needy we delivered furniture to welfare bums. They were so lazy they refused to even carry the free blankets used to keep them warm. They were ungrateful.

But, you know what else they were?

Very sad and ashamed .

It was because they knew their lifestyle was wrong not because of us.

We were respectful and friendly with them. Listening to them talk amongst themselves we hear them constantly brag about themselves while drinking and smoking cigarettes.

This is vanity and it comes from a selfish heart.

But the sad thing is that: When you surround yourself with yourself you end up with nobody but yourself. That is a very lonely place to be. Joseph a son of Jehovah

They were living a destructive lifestyle and it was only destroying themselves.

For we must all stand before Christ to be judged. We will each receive whatever we deserve for the good or evil we have done in this earthly body. 2 Corinthians 5:10 The Holy Bible New Living Translation

Later we did deliver furniture to low income folks who were very grateful so it more than evened out for being a rewarding day knowing that we helped the truly needy.

And, because we are Christians and those we helped were not, we gave glory to Jesus and by His grace used this as a conduit to guide them to Him.

And don’t forget to do good and to share with those in need. These are the sacrifices that please God. Hebrews 13:16The  Holy Bible New Living Translation

There is a difference between those in need and those who are too lazy to support themselves. Supporting the later is a waste of the resources Jehovah has given you to help those who are truly in need. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah El Deah (God of knowledge) bless me with the knowledge of discernment on how to share with those in need and not those who are lazy and ungrateful. I sincerely request this in the name of the wisest of all 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

I am Grateful That There Was Today

   

Let us come to him with thanksgiving. Let us sing psalms of praise to him. Psalm 95:2 Holy Bible, New Living Translation

  I am grateful that the Lord held off the bad storm so that I could take mom out for her birthday at a special restaurant.

I am grateful that there was two families at the restaurant whose children were very well behaved and a delight to watch and talk with (well except the baby, she could not talk ha ha).

I an grateful that the church parking lot was not an ice rink today (Sunday), mom has walking disabilities.

I am grateful that the Lord protected me as we experienced 80 mile an hour winds and none of the trees fell on our Sanctuary (the meeting place between our Heavenly Beloved and me, that is where I sleep in great peace) and there was no blizzard as predicted (it seemed to happen all around us but not in our area) .

I am grateful that the Lord guided me to a web site where adult coloring pages can be downloaded (they are downloaded and printed off for mom and for seniors at a local seniors home.

Be grateful for the simple blessings and they add up to a great big daily one. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah JIREH (God who supplies) with these wonderful gifts to share with others. I exalt You in the name of Your most wonderful gift 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

P.S. This was written during the winter and I am just getting around to publishing it now.

A Posture of Defiance.

But the God who holds in His hand your breath of life and your ways you have not honored and glorified [but have dishonored and defied]. Daniel 5:23 Holy Bible Amplified Version

It is the old: “You do not tell me what I can do or what I cannot do.” That is what intentional sin is. That is arrogant and proud. It is also stupid.

Jehovah only lays out the groundwork for life for us. He is not some dictator in the sky but a loving Father that only wants the best for us.

So, just as a good parent tells their children they must not eat too much candy or they will get sick so too does Jehovah guide us on what not to do.

Just as a good parent tells their children to eat their vegetables because it is good for their health so too does Jehovah tell us what is the right thing to do for our own good.

When you refuse to do as Jehovah directs you to do there will be consequences, not by His hand but by your own arrogance and stupidity.

He will only tolerate such behaviour for so long and then He will walk away from you. When that happens look out because nothing but trouble and hard times are coming your way with the ultimate consequence being eternal damnation in Hell.

“Sin is not an unfortunate slip or a regrettable act; it is a posture of defiance against a holy God.” — Max Lucado

Prayer: Please Jehovah KalEl (voice of God) bless me to always be attentive unto Your wise voice so that I am a loving obedient child unto You. I know that Your instruction is for my own good. I humbly request this in the name of Your Holy Son whom was always attentive and obedient unto Your voice Jesus Christ. Amen.

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