Who’s Your Boss?

DEVINE PLANS

 For there are eunuchs who have been so from birth, and there are eunuchs who have been made eunuchs by men, and there are eunuchs who have made themselves eunuchs for the sake of the kingdom of heaven. Let the one who is able to receive this receive it.” Matthew 19:12 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

I want you to be free from anxieties. The unmarried man is anxious about the things of the Lord, how to please the Lord. 1 Corinthians 7:32 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

I am in my early sixties as I write this and have never been married. Oh sure there are many times when I see couples or families my heart aches to enjoy such a blessing in my life as well.

That however, is not the path the Lord has chosen for me.

There is no way I could have served the Lord in the manner I have if there was a wife or family in my life. I have faith in our Jesus that He will reward me with unlimited love in His family when it is to our heavenly home He takes me.

So if you are single, do not allow family or society to push you in a direction contrary to God. It will only lead to misery.

Where I live now, when people get a certain age their relatives (mostly their mothers and grandmothers) constantly harass and nag them: “When are you going to get married, when are you going to get married?” When they get married then the nagging continues: “When are you going to give me a grandson, when are you going to give me a grandson?” (Not a grandchild, but a grandson. This is to support them in their old age and to carry on the family name. What a pity so many young people get married just to shut the nagging mothers and grandmothers up. They are not happy, indeed, most are terribly miserable.

Most married folks drift farther apart in their marriage the longer they are married until they are two strangers living in the same house. Joseph a son of Jehovah

I have seen this come true in almost every married elder couple I have met. Indeed, many times I wonder why they even got married in the first place (most times it was because the lust of the body was stronger than the willingness to obey Jehovahs choice. It ended up with a lot of shot gun marriages. Yes, even with your grandparents).

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Yahew (God of His people) for the privilege of being a eunuch in order to better serve You. I know You shall reward me in Heaven. In the name of my adoring big brother Jesus Christ I give thanks for this blessing. Amen

Wishing you a house full of sunshine, hearts full of cheer and love that grows deeper each day of the year. Welsh blessing

The Simple Easy Way to Riches

RICHES OF THE HEART

 How would you like to be rich and contented?

How would you like to have a fulfilling life?

How do you attain this you ask?

Begin with assessing your heart.

Are you so caught up in the “Keeping up with the Jones” you do not have time to enjoy what you have?

Is your pursuit of money and all its trapping enslaving you to the point where you neglect your service to God and spending quality time with your family.

Remember the Cat Stevens song “Cats in the cradle and the silver spoon”? The father was so busy he neglected his son. Then when he was old and retired his son didn’t have time to spend with his child. That’s when he realized his mistake and understood he should have spent time with his family. Try spending quality time with your wife (or husband every day), time with your children every day.

Get involved with community work. I loved my time volunteering at a local hospital and still cherish it even now, thirty years later.

Don’t forget “It is better to receive than to get.”

When you give of your time and effort you become rich in the heart. That is when God will shower you with His wonderful blessings.

Satisfy us in the morning with your unfailing love that we may sing for joy and be glad all our days. Psalm 90:14 New Living Bible

From David learn to give thanks for everything. Every furrow in the Book of Psalms is sown with the seeds of thanksgiving. Jeremy Taylor

“The blessing of the LORD, it makes rich, and he adds no sorrow with it” (Prov. 10:22) New Living Translation.

Do you love to go shopping?

Do you have to have the latest clothing (even though after you buy it a lot of times it looks weird and you wouldn’t wear it for a Halloween costume)?

Do you have to have the latest toys to be happy?

You know, I remember before Christmas (which is “supposed” to be all about giving) being constantly bombarded by commercials on TV about how happy we would be if we had to have the latest toy. Of course on Christmas Day after gleefully playing with the toys for a while we became bored with them and they sat there gathering dust. Then what?

Remember in the seventies when everyone had to have a pet rock and you paid all that money to have one?

How much do you play with it today? (Yes kids, many of your parents were that stupid to buy a “pet rock”)

Do you have to go out and buy more to be happy?

What a never ending stupid circle of emptiness. You are a dead man walking. Sure your body is alive, but there is a huge emptiness in your heart, for all intense purposes your heart is dead. Welcome to the world of consumerism. Isn’t it fun?

1 Timothy 5:6: “She that lives in pleasure is dead while she lives.” The American Standard Bible .

The most miserable people I have met are the ones that have all the toys. The most happy and contented ones are the ones that are rich in their hearts. Which one do you choose?

Be sure to fear the LORD and serve him faithfully with all your heart; consider what great things he has done for you. 1 Samuel 12:24 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

You will be made rich in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God.2 Corinthians 9:11 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

May my both my hands always be open. One hand to receive my Heavenly Beloveds blessings, the other to share them. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Our gracious and loving God please fill my heart and mind with the most important treasure of all, knowing Your awesome love and having You in my life. As I am filled with Your glorious riches please help me become even more richer. Guide me on where and how to share Your Magnificent love with others. Teach me what to say and do to reveal Your incredible love for all. In the ones name who loved us so much He willingly dies for us Jesus Christ we pray. Amen.

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

Are You in The

BE JOYFUL IN YOU

I will praise you, Lord, with all my heart; I will tell of all the marvelous things you have done. Psalms 9:1 the Holy Bible, New Living Testament

“How sharper than a serpent’s tooth it is to have a thankless child.”  William Shakespeare

When I was an experienced tree planter, at the beginning of every season I took time to teach the rookies how to plant. There is a lot more to it than just putting a tree in the ground and takes about three years to learn. As we got paid per tree rooky wages were low compared to vets so it was a great advantage for them what was done for them. Usually only one out of every seven would thank me.

I imagine the odds are even lower for those that are thankful towards Jehovah for His blessing bot great and small.

How about you, are you in the majority or minority?

I am constantly thanking my Beloved very day.

And you know what?

It gives you a very positive outlook in life and a very positive attitude through out the day. If you desire big blessings from Jehovah try being thankful for the small ones. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-jireth (Genesis 22:14) – The LORD Shall Provide, for blessing me with ample provisions both great and small every day. I always desire to be grateful to You my loving Poppa for Your abundant provisions. In the name of He who provided salvation through His blood I thank you. 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

The Great Thing to Remember

You are precious to God

 Is How precious is your unfailing love, O God! Psalm 36: 7 New Living Translation Bible

Your fleshly family may and will desert you and or betray you but Your Heavenly Father never will. He has a never ending love for you that never fails.

Your wife or husband (in a normal relationship which is one man, one woman) may betray you and or desert you but Jehovah is always faithful. His love is the most secure love of them all. The same goes true for your children.

Friends will betray you or desert you but Jehovah never will. He is always faithful to you and never betrays you.

Indeed, as absurd as it sounds, you may even desert yourself (You may give up on yourself) but Jehovah never will. Indeed you may betray yourself (You may share intimate details of your life with the wrong folks) but Jehovahs love is the most secure of all love affairs.

“The great thing to remember is that, though our feelings come and go, His love for us does not.” — C. S. Lewis

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Heseh (God is love) for blessing me with the purest love that can ever be experienced by anyone. I exalt You in the name of He whose blood made it all possible Jesus Christ. Amen

May love be in your life, may hope be in your heart and may peace be in your every day walk with Christ.

What is Idolatry?

BURN LIKE THE SUN

 Nothing evil will be allowed to enter, nor anyone who practices shameful idolatry and dishonesty. Revelation 21:27 New Living Translation

Jesus is talking about those forbidden from entering Heavens Gate.

Do you see how repulsive idolatry is to Him?

You think you do not worship idols?

How about your pets? I have seen many pets rule the house instead of the owner. Yes I love our pets like they were my own children but instead of worshiping them, I thank Jehovah for blessing me with such loving creatures. See the difference? Continue reading

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.

Close To the Brokenhearted.

SPIRITUAL STRENGTH

The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit (contrite in heart, truly sorry for their sin). Psalms 34:18 Holy Bible Amplified Version

When you have lost a loved one through death or divorce or because they have left the nest, your heart is crushed and your heart is broken, why not take it to Jesus?

When walking amongst us did not His family divorce itself from Him and did He not experience broken heartedness when one of His loved ones died? Did He not suffer separation from our beloved Father on the cross?

I have lost many loved ones and He was there to comfort me as no one else could or would.

When you lose your job or home why not take it to Jesus?

Did He not experience homelessness? Didn’t he and His disciple sleep in the wilderness where there was bandits, scorpions and many man eating predators?

I have been homeless and living in a tent surrounded by bears. It was taking security that

I went to sleep with no concern of being attacked while sleeping

Did He not lose His job as a carpenters son (He did not go right from being a carpenters son to His ministry.)?

There have been many times when, through no fault of my own, I was released from a company (usually because they went bankrupt) that I believed I would be at for all of my working years. It was He picked me up when I felt like giving up and going out and pounding the pavement and or upgrading my skills and getting another place to work. For those of us over fifty that are considered unhirable why not ask Jesus how you can be blessed with self employment?

When you are crushed and brokenhearted because of illness, didn’t Jesus experience the pain of whipping and beating in His body and the agony of hanging on the cross? I was a sickly boy with very bad asthma and water on the knee. It was only in reading the Bible and talking with my beloved Jesus that a lot of that pain was endured and I felt His presence the closest to me.

So will He not be close to you and heal you spiritually when you experience these things (He may not heal your relationships or get your job or home back or heal your illness but will He not as a loving Savior be close to you and heal your spirit)?

Indeed may these not be viewed as a burden but rather as a blessing?

It is in our hard times that we are the closest to Jesus. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Shammah (God is present ) for Your life giving presence with me through my oh so many trials and tribulations. If You were not there I do not believe I would have lived through oh so many of them. I give thanks for this wonderful loving care through Your son who experienced everything I have and so much more Jesus Christ. Amen.

May Jehovahs sweet love envelope you today a and every day.
