You Have Never Walked so Far.


 Return to Me,” declares the Lord of hosts, “and I shall return to you. Zechariah 1:3 Holy Bible Amplified Version

The Lord is always willing to accept you back into His family once you have repented.

Now to repent means we must admit what we did, admit it was wrong, apologize for it and to stop doing it.

So when you are suffering harshly because of your sin and you say sorry, sorry just to have the punishment lifted you cannot fool Jehovah.

A false apology is worse than no apology. Joseph a son of Jehovah

When you are walking in wickedness Jehovah will speak to you in dreams and visions, in bringing folks to you to convict you of your sinfulness, He will speak to you through songs and in your every day life.

If you stubbornly refuse to listen to Him and turn your back on Him then He will turn His back on you. Then look out.

When you sincerely repent He shall joyously welcome you back into His Holy family. When you return to Jehovah, He will return to you.

You have never walked so far away from Jehovah that He will not welcome you back when you repent. Joseph son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emunah (God is faithful) for blessing me to be faithful unto me when I sincerely repent of my wickedness and desire to continue to walk close with You. I exalt Thee in the name of He whose precious blood made this possible Jesus Christ. Amen

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



Being Transformed Into


And we all, with unveiled face, continually seeing as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are progressively being transformed into His image. 2 Corinthians 3:18 Holy Bible Amplified Version

When we accept Christ as our Savior and King, He sends the Holy Spirit to transform us from being a dirty filthy rag into a new beautiful Divine creation.

This does not mean that when we accept Christ there will be a hallelujah moment and then we can continue on as we were before.

It does mean a lifetime commitment unto His will in our lives. It means allowing Him to burn off the dross (bad habits and attitudes which hinder our relationship with Him and our maturity in our Christian walk).

Speaking from experience it is not pleasant but you will praise Him for it every day after its completion. It does not mean we are to sit on our butts and expect the Holy Spirit to do all the work. It does mean a lifetime commitment to making the effort ourselves to become Holy children of God. Many times we will be expected to make the effort by ourselves as we mature because that is a process of maturity as well.

“God invites us to come as we are, not to stay as we are.”Tim Keller

Prayer: Thank you Holy Spirit M’Kaddess (The Lord is my Sanctifier) for blessing me with teaching me and helping me to grow into a sanctified child of my Beloved and to lead a life pleasing unto Him. I exalt Thee in the name of He who showed us all how to lead a sanctified life pleasing unto our loving Heavenly Father Jesus Christ. Amen

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


My Greatest Gift Ever.


 When I was a boy my grandma would give me a sweater every year for Christmas. Upon opening it there is disappointment, I wanted a toy. After putting it on however, I refused to take it off. Mom would have to fight with me almost every day because I always wanted to wear it. There was just something special about it that made it inseparable. What was unknown to me in my childhood innocence was that grandma would work on knitting that sweater every day for a month or two and what made it so special was the love she put into creating it. When the sweater was worn the love could be felt in it. It was the best gift ever to this child.

It pales in comparison  however to the greatest gift that is given to everyone free of charge. That gifts name is Jesus.

Jehovah loved us so much He allowed His most loved son to lower Himself to our level just so He would teach us about Jehovah and how to nurture a loving obedient relationship with Him. That was my greatest gift ever given to me by the most loving Father. I thank Him ever so deeply for this cherished gift ever day.

Jehovah loved us so much that even though it ripped His tender heart apart He allowed His beloved son to suffer and die for our sins so that we have the opportunity to become His children. That was my greatest gift ever given to me by my best friend Jesus Christ.

I thank Him ever so deeply for this cherished gift ever day. Jesus loved us so much He left His perfect loving home in Heaven to lower Himself to our level to teach us about our Beloved Father in Heaven. He loved us so much He suffered the most horrible death just so we have the most wonderful gift of all, becoming a child of Jehovah. That was my greatest gift ever given to me by my Savior Jesus Christ. I thank Him ever so deeply for this cherished gift ever day.

“For God so [greatly] loved and dearly prized the world, that He [even] gave His[One and] only begotten Son, so that whoever believes and trusts in Him [as Savior] shall not perish, but have eternal life. John 3:16 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Children, this gift is available free to all who are willing to accept it. When you do, you enter into the most fabulous loving relationship there ever was, is and will be.

If you are a child of His, be respectful and thank your Heavenly Father Jehovah and your best friend and Savior Jesus Christ for this most treasured gift every day.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah for blessing me with allowing Your precious Son to become Jesus Christ Go’el (The Lord is my Redeemer) and thank you Jesus for willingly committing Your selfless act of becoming my Holy Redeemer. I praise You in You amazing name. Amen.

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


The Source of My Confidence.


 For You are my hope; O Lord God, You are my trust and the source of my confidence from my youth. Psalm 71:5 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

Society is a prison of keeping up phony appearances. To fit in with the “in crowd” you have to act in a way that conforms to what they think is right or wrong. They decide what to wear, what music to watch, what movies to watch and what food to eat.

I do not care what others think of me, I care what Christ knows of me and is making of me. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Who is “they’ you ask?

It is big business disguised as someone wise. I remember a time when these two guys would rate movies and many folks would decide which movies to watch based on their assessment. The strange thing is though, the movies they thought were super great must see movies were boring and duds to me. The movies they panned were the great movies to me. Strange how they were paid by the big movie companies.

I see movie stars and so called musicians commenting on world events like they are so wise yet they are idiots who know nothing. Many folks are just as big of idiots because they take their word for it rather than do research on it. Those of us who do do the research and call them out are called racists, bigots, hemophiliacs, to name just a few.

There are so many that wait in freezing weather and spend exorbitant amounts of money to get the latest mobile phone from a certain company just to feed their ego.

Those of us who are wise have confidence in who we are in Christ. When The Holy Spirit directs our steps it is because the Trinity loves us and desires only what is best for us not to empty our wallets or bend to worshiping them as idols. We have confidence in our Teacher and Guidance Councilor. We have confidence in who we are because we know Jehovah made us this way (that is not to say we are perfect or that we do not need the burning off of the dross- bad habits). We have confidence in what He is molding us into.

“The greatest prison people live in is the fear of what other people think.” David Icke Prayer: Thank you my Beloved Jehovah Kal El (voice of God) for speaking to me in a gentle assurance that it does not matter what others think of me but what is important is what Your know of me and about me and what I am capable of becoming when I dedicate my life unto You. I exalt Thee in the name who He who never listened to anyone but You in whim He was Jesus Christ. Amen

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


The Light Above My Head.


I will put My Spirit in you and you will come to life, and I will place you in your own land. Then you will know that I the Lord have spoken, and fulfilled it,” says the Lord.’” Ezekiel 37:14 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

One night while sleeping in the back yard in a tent I was awoken by a blue flame above my head. Thinking the house was on fire I frantically attempted to open the zipper on the tent to get mom out of the house. I was so upset I, at first, did not realize I was vainly attempting to find the zipper on the wrong side of the tent. When I did manage to finally open the tent door and rush outside, there was no flames at all. Confused I crawled back into the tent and promptly fell asleep.

When I woke up the next morning all of my finger tips were tingling, my heart felt as if it was going to burst and my head felt electrified. No, it was not a physical ailment that caused this, I am as strong as a horse.

During morning Bible reading this verse burned into my eyes.

There is concern about what will happen to me when mom passes on to the other side (I am an unpaid caregiver with no savings). Every morning I thank the Lord that even though I do not know what is going to happen, one thing for certain is that He will always take care of me.

In the four years of being a caregiver I have worked tirelessly fixing this place up by myself. The only help the rest of the family is, is when they help themselves to moms money every month. They never come down to help and only call when they want money.

One day after crying out to the Lord about the unfairness of it all, He directed me to go sit out on a trail with my Bible. He spent three hours with verse after verse educating me that the wicked shall lose their inheritance and the righteous shall inherit theirs. I kept on replying that I know my inheritance is in Heaven and that is all I want but it would be nice to have some help from the rest of the family in caring for mom. Finally I have taken the attitude that I get what can be done done and not stress out or work myself into exhaustion attempting to do all the work myself.

This verse seems to be His word pounding into my thick skull that all the work I have done is not for someone else (the wicked family) to profit from (because of the beautification of the property the house has increased in value, which I do not care about but they do because it means they get more money from the inheritance). I shall dwell upon this land in peace, love, joy and security because Jehovah says so and He never lies.

Do not fear [anything], for I am with you; Do not be afraid, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, be assured I will help you; I will certainly take hold of you with My righteous right hand [a hand of justice, of power, of victory, of salvation].’Isaiah 41:10 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Because He lives, I can face tomorrow. Because He lives all fear is gone. Because I know, I KNOW, He holds the future, And life is worth the living just because He lives.” Bill & Gloria Gaither

For I have taken all this to heart, exploring and examining it all, how the righteous (those in right standing with God) and the wise and their deeds are in the hands of God. Ecclesiastes 9: 1 Holy Bible Amplified Version

If you are serving the Lord and are concerned about anything I pray this article has blessed you with strength, confidence, peace and joy.

Prayer : Thank you Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) for blessing me with Your Divine provision through out all of my life. Thank you for promising me a wonderful retirement plan which surpasses anything the world can offer. I exalt Thee in the name of He who will greet me in Your greatest retirement Home every conceived Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Blessed is Any Weight


Cast your burden on the Lord [release it] and He will sustain and uphold you;
He will never allow the righteous to be shaken (slip, fall, fail). Psalm 55:22
Holy Bible, Amplified Version

“Blessed is any weight, however overwhelming, which God has been so good as to fasten with His own hand upon our shoulders.” — F. W.Faber

Now why in the world wold any weight be considered a blessing?

How many folks forget all about Jehovah during the good times but go a running to Him during the bad ones?

I believe the weight that endures over a sustained amount of time is the best.

The reason?

Those who are shallow in their relationship with Christ will quickly fall away when they do not receive instant relief. They will go to worldly councilors which is little if any use to them. They will cry out to their government to save them and the government shall be unable to assist them.

Some trust in chariots and some in horses, But we will remember and trust in the name of the Lord our God. They have bowed down and fallen, But we have risen and stood upright. Psalm 20: 7-8 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

Those whose hearts are open to Jehovah will experience the blessing of His hand in their experience and their faith (which means trust) will grow. So too, will their respect, love and admiration towards our loving Father in Heaven.

It is in our hard times that we grow the most and come the closest unto Jehovah. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Uzam (The Lord is our Strength in Trouble) for blessing me with the strength to continue on through the trial and tribulations, sorrows and snares that come my way. Thank you that You walk through them with me. I praise You in the name of the greatest source of strength of all Jesus Christ. Amen

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


Going First To.


 All Scripture is God-breathed [given by divine inspiration] and is profitable for instruction, for conviction [of sin], for correction [of error and restoration to obedience], for training in righteousness [learning to live in conformity to God’s will, both publicly and privately—behaving honorably with personal integrity and moral courage]. 2 Timothy 3:16 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

“To be subjected to God’s will is not only to give Him priority in our lives, it is but to give Him complete control.|” — Avery D. Miller

In the early days of my walk with Christ I was very independent. It was not that I was proud but felt it a shame to ask for help and felt like a failure. It took the Holy Spirit many decades to finally eradicate that from my disposition. Now, I try not to attempt anything without going first to Jehovah in council.

Many times I do not understand what He is doing but I have complete trust in Him. He has never let me down so why should’t I.

Going my way is a gamble, going Jehovahs way is a sure fire success. Joseph a son of Jehovah.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rohi ( Jesus is our Divine Shepherd ) for blessing me with Your omniscient guidance through out my life as I walk Your predestined path to Your Heavenly Home. I extol Thee in the name of the supreme Sheppard Jesus Christ. Amen

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