How to Make it Special

goodness-is

 Honor the LORD with your wealth, with the first fruits of all your crops; then your barns will be filled to overflowing, and your vats will brim over with new wine. Proverbs 3:9-10, The Holy Bible, New International Version

Do you give to the Lord with a joyous heart, or, do you give niggardly?

Niggardly: giving or sharing as little as possible Webster’s Dictionary

For me, I love to give with a joyous heart. A heart of gratitude to my loving creator for all the wonderful gifts He has so graciously given me. Not just material things like a place to live, but also insights into how truly awesome He is, how ingenious He is, how loving and caring He is. When I meditate on these things my heart cannot but help but give joyously to our wonderful God.

Think of how much you would pay to go to the best university in the world?

That is where you are when you read and digest the great wisdom in the Bible.

Then think of how much you give back to the great I Am?

“Whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.” Matthew 25:40 The Holy Bible, New International Version

Think of all the wonderful gifts He so hospitably gives us?

Mull over the beautiful sunrise, the wonderful fragrance of flowers, and the sweet serenade of the tiny song birds. While delighting in these special treasures, why not take this time to talk with Him as well.

What better time or place?

These are all amazing gifts He freely shares with us if we take the time to enjoy them. Our reciprocation should therefore be one of joyous returning to the marvelous Immanuel (God who walks amongst us) whether the commitment is financial or elegantly serving in a volunteer capacity.

When we give appreciatively to the magnificent God we are exhibiting our gratitude towards Him the way He intended it to be and the way that brings a smile to His beautiful face. There is joyous celebration with angels singing when you share in this manner.

The Holy Spirit is the secret of the power in my life All I have to do is surrender my life to Him. Kathryn Kuhlman

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) for blessing me with an abundance of both physical and spiritual security (not overabundance but enough to live comfortably). Thank you my Beloved for blessing me with numerous opportunities to share this wealth with those who are in need and are appreciative of the gifts given to them through Your grace. I praise You in the name of He who is Your greatest gift to me Jesus Christ. Amen

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

To Behave Like Angels.

DANCE FOR JOY

Each of these living beings had six wings, and their wings were covered all over with eyes, inside and out. Day after day and night after night they keep on saying, “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God, the Almighty. the one who always was, who is, and who is still to come.”Revelation 4:8Holy Bible New Living Translation

“Praising God is one of the highest and purest acts of religion. In prayer we act like men; in praise we act like angels.” — Thomas Watson

I love to behave like angels. We read in the Bible how they are continually praising Jehovah and Jesus. Me too. No matter how big or small the blessing I praise my Beloved for them all.

As a consequence of this I am more in tune with all of His blessings which makes me praise all the more. Every day is filled with praise for them.

Why not try it and experience a fantastic side effect of this habit, a day filled with Divine love and joy. I am grateful for this gift as I know you will be too. Salutation

Daily praising my Heavenly Beloved is as natural to me as is breathing. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Heseh (God is love) for blessing me with the utmost love affair, the one between You, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. I am in my greatest joy when singing songs of love, praise and gratitude unto Youse. I exalt You in the name of my most Beloved best friend Jesus Christ. Amen

The gift of love, the gift of joy, the gift of peace, these are the greatest gifts that can be given. They are given in abundance to all those in Christs family by our Heavenly loving  Father. May you be blessed with plentiful opportunities to share these with those around you today. Joseph a son of Jehovah

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.

Are You a Good Steward?

Be hospitable to one another without complaint. Just as each one of you has received a special gift [a spiritual talent, an ability graciously given by God], employ it in serving one another as [is appropriate for] good stewards of God’s multi-faceted grace [faithfully using the diverse, varied gifts and abilities granted to Christians by God’s unmerited favor].1 Peter 4:9-11 Holy Bible Amplified Version

In unions it is the steward that goes to management when there is a problem between one of its member’s and the company (at least it was when I was a union member.).

To be Gods steward we are to be helpers to Jehovah. We are to guide others to Jehovah and to observe the proper conduct in His Holy Family.

To do this Jehovah has equipped us with specific skills to accomplish this assignment. We need not go to seminary or university to attend these classes, the Holy Spirit knows us individually and has individual classes prepared for us so we will learn our gifts and how to use them correctly. When we are ready He will lead us to the proper place and time to utilize these skills to the best effect.

The problem is too many are neglecting their gifts and instead selfishly wasting their time on their own goals in life rather than being good stewards in Christs kingdom.

Are you a good steward?

Stewardship is the obedient management of life and all of its resources under the guidance of the Holy Spirit to bring glory unto Jehovah and to bring the lost into His Holy family. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Hamelech ( Jesus my Lord King ) for the honor of being Your free will servant. May I humbly always be obedient unto Your Divine direction of the proper use of the resources Your give me to expand Your Kingdom of Light into the world of darkness. I sincerely request this in Your majestic name. Amen

The gift of love, the gift of joy, the gift of peace, these are the greatest gifts that can be given. They are given in abundance to all those in Christs family by our Heavenly loving  Father. May you be blessed with plentiful opportunities to share these with those around you today.

You Faithfully Answer.

 You faithfully answer our prayers with awesome deeds, O God our savior. You are the hope of everyone on earth, even those who sail on distant seas. Psalm 65:5 New Living Translation Bible

Prayer is the sweetest conversation freely available to all who belong in Jehovahs family. He always answers.

Many times He answers in mysterious ways that we do not understand until the proper time of revelation (He has done that with me oh so many times).

Many times while conversing with Him, He will guide to verse after verse in the Bible to make sure there is no doubt about what He is saying and blessing us with a clear vision of what His advice is.

There has been so many times when in times of extreme stress in prayer He has blessed me with peace, comfort and assurance. Far better than anything the world has to offer.

When confused about the road to travel or the action to take, He always blesses with advice in His Holy Guidebook (the Bible) on the proper course of action to take or where to go to find a Godly mentor to assist us in the proper course of action to take.

There has been so many times when exhaustion has sapped every molecule of energy from the soul and it feels like sinking into the abyss that in prayer He strengthens the spirit to explode into action with Divine strength.

Why would anyone go to anyone or anything other than the ultimate caregiver, Jehovah? They cannot even begin to compare with Him.

“Prayer wonderfully clears the vision; steadies the nerves; defines duty; stiffens the purpose; sweetens and strengthens the spirit.” — S. D. Gordon

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Pyyrand (Jesus my best friend) for the honour of always being able to talk with You. It is the one of greatest gifts You have freely abundantly given me. It is the best part of my day. I rejoice in this treasure in Your beautiful name. Amen

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

I am Rich, I am Poor

CHRIST IN ME

 But that is the time to be careful! Beware that in your plenty you do not forget the Lord your God and disobey his commands, regulations, and decrees that I am giving you today. Deuteronomy 8:11 New Living Translation Bible

I am rich, I am poor.

That pretty much sums up my life.

When the times were materially good my spiritual relationship with Jehovah was as cool as a corpse. The funny thing is though that even though I was living a life of comfort and ease there was something missing. I could not put my finger on it.

Then, when the good times came to an end and the material hard times came I found I was close to Jehovah spiritually.

From a lot of experience I greatly prefer the spiritual wealth over the material ones.

There is a saying that when the times are good the church is empty but when the times are hard the church is full.

Why wait for the hard times when you can be blessed with a daily close loving obedient relationship with Jehovah. Then when the hard times come, they are not so hard because of your closeness with Jehovah.

When we arrogantly turn our back on Jehovahs commands, decrees and regulations we pay a very severe price for it. Just read the history books of any country to confirm it.

I have found that this verse is oh so very true to be blessed with a contented, grateful life:

Give me neither poverty nor riches! Give me just enough to satisfy my needs. Proverbs 30:8 New Living Translation Bible

“We can stand affliction better than we can prosperity, for in prosperity we forget God.” Dwight L. Moody

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El SIMCHAH GIYL (God my Exceeding Joy) for the most wonderful of gifts and that is the never ending joy that comes from nurturing an eternal loving relationship with You. I revere You in the name of He who brings me ecstatic joy when in His wonderful presence Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with peace and joy every day.

Shouts in the Street.

search for jesus

 This is something we all need to take heed of today.

She raises her voice in the markets; She calls out at the head of the noisy streets [where large crowds gather]; At the entrance of the city gates she speaks her words:

“How long, O naive ones [you who are easily misled], will you love being simple-minded and undiscerning? How long will scoffers [who ridicule and deride] delight in scoffing,  How long will fools [who obstinately mock truth] hate knowledge?

“If you will turn and pay attention to my rebuke, Behold, I [Wisdom] will pour out my spirit on you; I will make my words known to you.

“Because I called and you refused [to answer], I stretched out my hand and no one has paid attention [to my offer]; And you treated all my counsel as nothing And would not accept my reprimand, I also will laugh at your disaster; I will mock when your dread and panic come,

When your dread and panic come like a storm, And your disaster comes like a whirlwind, When anxiety and distress come upon you [as retribution].

“Then they will call upon me (Wisdom), but I will not answer; They will seek me eagerly but they will not find me.

Because they hated knowledge And did not choose the fear of the Lord [that is, obeying Him with reverence and awe-filled respect],
They would not accept my counsel, 
And they spurned all my rebuke.

“Therefore they shall eat of the fruit of their own [wicked] way And be satiated with [the penalty of] their own devices.

“For the turning away of the naive will kill them,

And the careless ease of [self-righteous] fools will destroy them.

(Unfortunately I have seen too much of this even in today’s society, especially amongst the liberals, homosexuals and so called intellectuals).

“But whoever listens to me (Wisdom) will live securely and in confident trust
And will be at ease, without fear 
or dread of evil.” 

(I have seen this and am living this today. It is a great comfort and instills great peace of the heart). Proverbs 1:20-33 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Ignore wisdom and pay the price in a living Hell on this earth and an eternal one in the next life. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emet (God of truth) for blessing me with Your indisputable truth. It has enlightened me to a life free from the darkness around me and the gift of walking in Your righteous light all the way to Heaven. I praise You in the name of the light of the world Jesus Christ. Amen

The gift of love, the gift of joy, the gift of peace, these are the greatest gifts that can be given. They are given in abundance to all those in Christs family by our Heavenly loving  Father. May you be blessed with plentiful opportunities to share these with those around you today.
