For Your Gift

Oh Jehovah Abba (God our Father) 1 John 3:1 thank You for Your promise that your mercies are new every morning and Your faithfulness is great.

Thank you for your amazing power, great love and work in my life every day.

Thank you for Your endless goodness and bountiful blessings over me. I am so grateful that You are always with me through the toughest of times.

Thank you the power and strength that The Holy Spirit, who dwells with in me, blesses me with every day.

Thank you that Your mercy and grace is always with me.

Thank you for allowing the incredible sacrifice You allowed Your most precious Son to sacrifice for me so that I have freedom and life in communion with You.

Please forgive me when I neglect to thank you for the generous blessings You give me every day, for all You have done in my life and for all You are doing in my life.

Please help me to set my eyes and heart on you afresh today.

Please renew my spirit every morning and fill me with Your peace and joy. Thank you that your ways are far greater than my ways and Your thoughts far deeper than my thoughts.

Thank you for Your plan to redeem me and that in You, all things are made new.

Thank you that Your face is towards the righteous, You are close to the brokenhearted, You hear my cries, and know my heart.

Thank you for Your daily, powerful presence in my life, that I am assured, no matter what I am facing, Your heart is towards me, Your eyes are over me, and Your ears are open to my prayers.

Thank you that you surround us with favor as with a shield, and I am safe in Your care.

I humbly ask that You would keep my footsteps firm on solid ground, helping me to be consistent and faithful.

Please give me supernatural endurance to stay the course in life which You have chosen for me to walk to Heaven, not swerving to the right or to the left, or being too easily distracted by other things that would seek to call me away from a close walk with You.

I pray for your protection over my life, my family, and other believers.

I ask for your hand to cover us and keep us distanced from the evil intent of the enemy, that you would be a barrier over us and we would find refuge in you.

I pray You would give me discernment and insight beyond my years to understand Your will, hear Your voice, know Your ways and be obedient unto them all.

Please shine Your light in me, through me, and over me. May I make a difference in my family, my neighbourhood and this world for your glory, so your purposes would stand. Set Your way before us this day and every day.

May all Your plans in my life succeed.

May I reflect your peace and hope to a world that so desperately needs Your presence and healing. I deeply love You and need You Lord in every aspect of my life, this day and every day.

I give You praise and thanks, for You alone are worthy, and I are more than conquerors through the gift of Jesus Christ! In Jesus’ Name Amen.

Christ blesses us with love, peace and joy. May you be blessed with many opportunities to share these with others today.   Joseph a son of Jehovah

One Whose Heart Breaks When

 I live in the high and holy place with those whose spirits are contrite and humble. I restore the crushed spirit of the humble and revive the courage of those with repentant hearts. Isaiah 57:15 Holy Bible, New Living Translation

A contrite heart means one whose heart breaks when they sin.

Now do you notice that Jehovah lives in a high and holy place?

That can only mean Heaven.

Do you notice that those with a contrite heart live there with Him?

When we are naughty and then repent (which means we admit what we did, admit it was wrong, apologize for it, ask for forgiveness and make restitution where possible) then Jehovah takes our spirits up to Heaven to be with Him, if only for the moment of when we repent.

I believe this is a sign from our loving Heavenly Father that our sins are truly forgiven.

The Holy Spirit instills in us all that which is right and that which is wrong. We receive the proper rewards for the decisions we make. Joseph a son of Jehovah.

See how He says He will revive those of a repentant heart.

I know from my experience I felt crushed with remorse, weak and feeble. After repentance my heart felt as if a heavy burden had been lifted from it and danced with joy and gratitude for the forgiveness that was blessed upon me by my Heavenly Father (even when those that we offended were not so generous nor forgiving).

“Trust the past to God’s mercy, the present to God’s love and the future to God’s providence.” St. Augustine of Hippo

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Goelekh (Isaiah 49:26&60:16The LORD Thy Redeemer) that when I repent, You gently redeem me back into Jehovahs holy family. I praise You in Your kind, loving name. Amen

May love be in your life, may hope be in your heart and may peace be in your every day walk with Christ. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Growing Older Brings Us Closer to God.

A pair of red roses dancing in sunlight

It does not, therefore, depend on human desire or effort, but on God’s mercy Romans 9:16 New International Version                                                

Most times when we are younger we are cocky and depend upon ourselves more than we depend upon Jehovah.

As the years pass and we reflect how much our Beloved was walking with us through our trials and tribulations we respect and love Him more.

As we age we come to the realization that we will not be one this earth much longer and we have more aches and pains. We depend more upon our Cherished one and long to be with Him.

As a consequence growing older brings us closer to God.

Reflecting back I see a slow progression from self dependence to God dependence in my life. As well I see a deeper love, respect and admiration for my Beloved. I have grown closer to Him than I have with anybody or anything else. The consequence is a lot more peace, security and serenity in my life.

When the time comes for us to depart this world and we are laying in bed wondering if Jesus is real, if Heaven is real and if we are going to a Heavenly home the Holy Spirit comes to comfort and encourage us.

My salvation and my honor depend on God; He is my mighty rock, my refuge. Psalm 62:7 New International Version

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Chanan (God is gracious) for Your magnificent awesome infinite grace You have so richly showered upon me. Thank you for the comfort and encouragement of the Heavenly home You have so lovingly prepared for me to experience an eternity of love, joy, peace and good health with the one I so deeply love and long to live with. I exalt You in the name of my Heavenly king who is patiently waiting to greet me home Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus sweet love bless you today and every day
