So Little Time For

PRAY EVERYWHERE

 But as for me, my prayer is unto thee, O LORD, in an acceptable time: O God, in the multitude of thy mercy hear me, in the truth of thy salvation. Bible in Basic English

Quick, tell me what is the first thing you do when you wake up in the morning?

For me it is going to conversation with my Heavenly Beloved, beginning with saying good morning I love you. Then giving Him thanks and requesting His guidance through out the coming day.

Quick: what is the fist thing you do when you climb into bed at night?

For me it is giving thanks to my Heavenly Beloved for all of His blessings He has showered on my through out the day and asking for forgiveness for when I messed up. And ending with saying good night I love you.

Then, there are the numerous times through out the day when we have conversations. Sometimes it is with what is happening to me during the day. Sometimes it is thanking Him for the blessings He has given me. Sometimes it is just admiring the beauty He is sharing with me and talking about it.

Prayer should be the first thing a Christian does upon opening their eyes and the last thing they do before closing them. It should be as natural as breathing. Joseph a son of Jehovah

“Why is there so much running to and fro to meetings, conventions, fellowship gatherings and yet so little time for prayer?” — Andrew Bonar

Prayer: Thank you oh my deepest love Jehovah Shammah ( The Lord is Present) for the most wonderful blessing of all, being in Your loving presence every day. It is the most precious treasure there could ever be. I exalt You in the name of He with whom I look forward to receiving the ultimate treasure of walking with Him and talking with Him in Your Heavenly home 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 Certainly Don’t Recommend

GODS DELIGHTS

The troubles of my heart are multiplied; Bring me out of my distresses. Psalms 25:17 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

If you want to live an easy comfortable life do not become a Christian.

A Christians life can be expected to be one filled with sorrow, pain, hardship and loneliness.

You will be filled with sorrow at the ones who reject Christ (especially those in your maternal family) and by extension ostracize you. You will not be invited to family get togethers, weddings, funerals or anniversaries. It will cut deep.

You will suffer pain of never being invited to get togethers by those you work with. You will be treated like a freak and mocked.

You will suffer loneliness as Christ takes you away from comforts of this life into service for Him. You will feel as if you are the only person in the world because everyone around you rejects you mocks you and ostracizes you. It will cost you your family, your friends, your career, maybe your health, your financial security.

You will face hardship because of what you have to surrender unto Christ (in the beginning of your walk you will not be sure if He will supply your needs).

If this sounds like to heavy of a price to pay let us look at the rewards:

You can be sure that no matter the family and friends who reject you Christ will bring to you a Christian communion that will be closer than any maternal family member or worldly friend.

No matter recession or physical injury or anything that hampers you finances Christ will always make sure you have a comfortable place to live, clothes on your back and food in your belly.

In your hardship it will bring you ever closer to Christ which will expand your love, admiration, trust and friendship with Him, which is the best treasure of them all.

It is not: is it worth giving up everything to become a Christian but rather why in the world would I desire anything but Christ in my life. Joseph a son of Jehovah

  “I didn’t go to religion to make me ‘happy.’ I always knew a bottle of Port would do that. If you want a religion to make you feel really comfortable, I certainly don’t recommend Christianity.” C. S. Lewis

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Uzam (The Lord is our Strength in Trouble) for blessing me with Your Divine strength to endure and prosper (yes prosper because the prosperity is in the enlargement of our eternal love affair) during my suffering because of my association with You. I exalt You in the name of He gladly enduring the most horrible suffering for me 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.

Leads to the Solid Rock

HE LEADS ME

“So everyone who hears these words of Mine and acts on them, will be like a wise man [a far-sighted, practical, and sensible man] who built his house on the rock. Matthew 7:24 Holy Bible Amplified Version

I have seen multi million dollar homes slide down and embankment and drift out to sea in Southern California. The ocean washed away the sandy embankment so there was no solid foundation for the house.

I have seen houses that with stood hurricanes, flood, forest fires and earthquakes. They were built upon solid rock.

So too it is with our spiritual, mental and physical lives. When these are based upon the solid rock of Christ’s teachings they are on solid ground.

You always hear of new health fads (some of which are truly absurd) which in some cases are detrimental to your health. They are constantly changing. Today you are told not to eat a certain food and then tomorrow you are told it is a super food.

Obeying the dietary laws in the Bible is solid health advice to strong physical health on solid rock foundation.

There are constant psychological advice for your lives (sometimes by folks who could use a good psychiatrist). They change like the weather.

But obeying Christ’s advice always leads to the solid rock of mental health. There are always weirdo’s giving ludicrous advice on how to reach nirvana but it is astoundingly flawed.

Obeying Christ spiritual advice puts you on rock solid foundation. Hearing and obeying Jesus gives our mental, physical and spiritual lives a rock solid foundation. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Ma’oz (Lord my Fortress) for blessing me with the solid rock fortress of guidance and provision to build my house upon Your indestructible foundation. I thank you in the name of He who has laid that foundation for me, my cherished 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

All scripture is for instruction.

GODS GUIDEBOOK

 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

A desire to know merely to know, is curiosity.

But a desire to know in order to do, is godliness.

I have met many that can quote any Bible verse for any situation. When asked if they put it into application in their lives they just give me a dumb look and walk away.

I have met a few of the wise that can quote a Bible verse for any situation and explain what it means and how the Holy Spirit helped them to put it into application in their lives. Those are the ones I will listen to and respect.

“To know God is to know that our obedience is due to Him.” C. S. Lewis

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever) for blessing me with the wisdom and fortitude to obey what has been taught to me by Your wise teacher The Holy Spirit. Doing so blesses me with being a good and faithful servant. I edify You in the name of Your most obedient son 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.

We Must Prefer the Invisible Realities.

GOD GIVE A HOME

 So we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are unseen; for the things which are visible are temporal [just brief and fleeting], but the things which are invisible are everlasting and imperishable. 2 Corinthians 4:18 Holy Bible Amplified Version

We must prefer the invisible realities of eternity,to the visible things of time; and amid all that is . . . dazzling to sense, gratifying to appetite,and dear to passion.

By faith, spend a life of . . . self-denial, mortification of sin, and separation from the world.

Yes, the world says, buy my razzle and dazzle and you will by happy. But it is like a junkie. Once the high of your new toy has worn off, you need to go out and foolishly spend your money on something else to get you your high of happiness. In the end, you end up with nothing but misery as you become deeply in debt and your toys break down or become obsolete.

For those of us in Christ however, He reigns in our heart which is not visible to the outside world. He promises us a world we have never seen nor can imagine. We trust Him when He promises a home in Heaven just for us even though we cannot even imagine what it will be like. And, best of all, He promises the ultimate high, that of just being with Him to which nothing else can compare with.

I look forward to the ultimate high that you never come down from, that of spending an eternity in the ultimate love affair with Jesus. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you El SIMCHAH GIYL (God my Exceeding Joy) for blessing me with the purest ecstasy of joy in a loving relationship with You. I praise You in the name of He whose presence makes my heart dance a wonderful gig of joy Jesus Christ. Amen

Whatever is beautiful, whatever is meaningful, whatever brings you joy, may you be blessed with an abundance of it this every day this year.

That Which is Not

PROVISION

“Why do you spend money for that which is not bread, And your earnings for what does not satisfy? Listen carefully to Me, and eat what is good, And let your soul delight in abundance. Isaiah 55:1-7 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Jesus is the bread of life.

Why do you waste your time and money on things that bring no lasting satisfaction to your life? Indeed, how many have gone into debt (becoming slaves to their masters, the banks, in a feeble attempt to satisfy their fleshly desires)?

We need to devour the word of Jehovah like a starving man a smorgasbord every day. It is good for our bodies, minds and spirits. Jehovah joyfully supplies this feast in abundance to all who ask of Him.

Where can you find this smorgasbord?

Why your Bible of course. It has a feast of wisdom, dainties of joy, strength for those who are weak, healing medicine for those suffering heart ache and soothing comfort for those going though rough times. It is truly the best meal you can consume every day.

Consuming a daily meal of Jehovahs word is the most nutritious and best meal of the day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah RAB (Jehovah our Nourisher ) for blessing me with the most delicious, nutritious meal there could ever be (the Bible). I love to daily gorge myself on its awesome delicacies. I thank you in the name of He who provided some of the best fancies of the meal Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Before God Has a Chance To

GTTING CLOSE WITH GOD

 

 “Oh, that My people would listen to Me.” Psalm 81:13 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Do you yap and run?

Most times, I am ashamed to admit, that I do.

You know, where you say your prayers, say:”Thanks for listening Jehovah”, and begin your day or go to sleep.

I have begun to get into the habit of laying quiet for about ten minutes after prayer to see if the Lord has anything to say in reply. Usually He does. He fills me with a sense of peace.

Why not give it a try today and make it a practice every day.

Now it makes one wonder if there is anything more valuable or worthy of your time than just spending time with He whose love reigns supreme in your heart.

“The trouble with nearly everybody who prays is that he says “Amen” and runs away before God has a chance to reply. Listening to God is far more important than giving Him your ideas.” — Frank Laubach

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Kal El (voice of God) for blessing me with the most delightful conversations even when some of them are difficult to hear I know they are all for my own good because of Your divine love for me. I praise You in the name of He who spoke the choices words 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
