You can Thank Him For

SING IT

 Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus. 1 Thessalonians 5:18 Holy Bible, New Living Translation

Try this every day for a month and see how much your disposition changes:

Every morning thank Jehovah. You can thank Him for the bed you have slept on while many in the world sleep on cold dirt.

You can thank Him for the adobe you are living in while many are living in plastic tents you would be put in jail if you let your dog sleep in it.

Thank Him for the security of your adobe while many are living in war zones where their next moment may be their last or if they are captured they will be tortured and murdered.

You can thank Him for the heart in your adobe while many are shivering with nothing but a blanket to keep them warm.

You can thank Him for the air conditioning while many are in such sweltering heat they can barely breathe.

You can thank Him for the clean water to shower in, drink and cook your food with while many have enough water to cook and drink only.

You can thank Him for the food in your adobe while many are digging their meals out of the garbage dump.

I have seen all of these things and get angered when listening to the whine puppies cry about how hard done they are in the first world countries.

May I suggest going and living in third world countries for three months and then see how grateful you are to be living in the lap of luxury in the industrialized world.

“God gave you a gift of 86,400 seconds today. Have you used one to say ‘thank you?'” — William A. Ward

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) for all of Your wonderful daily provisions for me both great and small, for those I see and for those that are unknown to me. I praise You in the name of Your greatest gift to me Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with the gift of love, the gift of peace, the gift of joy. May you be blessed with numerous opportunities to share these gifts with others today.

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.

The Path of Jehovah

God  give us

Let me know Your ways, O Lord; Teach me Your paths. Guide me in Your truth and teach me, For You are the God of my salvation; For You [and only You] I wait [expectantly] all the day long. Psalms 25: 4-5 Holy Bible Amplified Version

All the paths of the Lord are loving kindness and goodness and truth and faithfulness To those who keep His covenant and His testimonies. Psalms 25:10 Holy Bible Amplified Version

What is the path

There are numerous places in the Bible about following Jehovahs path.

What is it?

Where is it?

The path of Jehovah is that we are to emulate Him. As He has loving kindness towards us, we are to have towards others. We are to be kind and considerate towards others for no others reason than we care about them as Jehovah cares about us (that does not mean we are to allow them to abuse this kindness.).

As He is good towards us, we are to be good to others. As Jehovah is good to us, let us be good to others.

As He speaks the truth to us so to is our conversation to be honest with others. We are not to lie, manipulate or con others. That is disgusting filth in Jehovahs eyes. So is gossiping and saying mean, cruel hateful words.

As He is faithful with us so to are we to be faithful with others. We are to be faithful with our families. We are to care for elderly parents and help them as much as we can (if they have been abusive when we were young we can lovingly confront them about it in hopes of reconciliation. If they refuse, still be loving towards them with the hopes of future reconciliation until Jehovah directs us that that is enough and to walk always from them, which He does). We are to be faithful to our wives and husbands (the Godly marriage of one man, one woman, not the satanic filth of homosexuality) . We are to be faithful towards our employee’s and our employers.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Abba (Jehovah our Heavenly Father) bless me to emulate my big brother Jesus in all of my thoughts, words and actions so that they will bring You glory, honour and the little lost sheep. I am grateful that through the course of this we are drawn closer and closer into a Divine love affair that will last an eternity. I sincerely request this and thank you for this privilege in the name of my Beloved big brother Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Three in One.

Since we are living by the Spirit, let us follow the Spirit’s leading in every part of our lives. Galatians 5:25 New Living Translation Bible

It is a bitterly cold day outside today and I had no intention of leaving the house, but, the Holy Spirit gently nagged me to go for my morning walk.

Before leaving I am grateful the Holy Spirit inspired me to get just the right cat photo’s and write cute inspirational birthday greeting for mom and the pastors wife (the have birthdays a few days apart) from the computer.

Today I am grateful the Holy Spirit nagged me to wear sunglasses even though it was cloudy outside. With the wind chill factor it was minus thirty. Without the sunglasses my eyes would have been injured in the hard, biting wind.

I am grateful the Holy Spirit had me go into the bulk store today because it was seniors discount day (that is not what I am grateful for) because when in there He suggested I buy white chocolate and licorice to make two different birthday cakes for mom.

I am grateful the computer at the computer store I went into to accepted the pdf format used to download Christian books for mom(sometimes they do, sometimes they do not).

 I am grateful that the store I went into to have the birthday photo cards printed off at had some good markdowns and it was the last day of the sale. All these store are in the same mall so I got three in one.

I am grateful that the Holy Spirit educated me in the proper manner in which to deal with the obnoxious neighbour. He reminded me of how to deal with them in the workplace and in the family. That method is being carried over with the neighbour.

I love the unique way in which Jehovah guides me every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) for blessing me with the Holy Spirits guidance in the mundane events in my life as well as the monumental ones. They are all equally important to You and equally important to us to obey if we desire to receive Your blessings. I praise You in the name of He who was obedient unto You all the way to the cross Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

To the Favor Of

CHRIST'S LOVE

 So then as through one trespass [Adam’s sin] there resulted condemnation for all men, even so through one act of righteousness there resulted justification of life to all men. Romans 5:18 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Justification is act of God’s boundless mercy in forgiving all the transgressions of the penitent believer, for the sake of atoning sacrifice of His beloved Son; and restoring the once guilty transgressor to the favour of God, and the hope of eternal life.

We are to be not just forever grateful to our Savior for willingly paying this excruciating horrid agonizing price but must be so every morning and evening.

Oh if only we could truly even begin to conceive the price that was paid with pain, blood and sweat for the punishment that has been pardoned of us by this loving act we would cry in adoration day and night in awestruck admiration and gratitude.

Do not take it lightly but in the utmost reverence.

It is Christs sweat, agony and blood that brought me into a Heavenly family. I shall give Him the biggest hug with tears streaming down my cheeks in love and adoration towards Him for this most amazing gift. . Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Hoshe’ah ( The Lord Saves ) for saving me from eternal damnation through Your sacred blood. May my heart be ever appreciative of this most precious gift every moment of every day. I praise You in Your most holy name Amen.

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

There is No Other

JEHOVAHS CARE

 Most certainly God is with you, and there is no other, No other God [besides Him]. Isaiah 45:14 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

There has been many hard times in my life where in reflection it is revealed that is was by the hand of Jehovah that He navigated me through them. No one or nothing else could have helped me through them. There is no other god to compare with my loving Heavenly Father. I am eternally grateful to Him for this blessing.

There have been many times when there was bountiful blessings showered upon me that made life easy and good. It was obvious with whom these blessing came forth from. Jehovah is truly a God of bountiful blessings. I am eternally grateful to Him for this blessing. There is no god like Him.

There has been uncountable times when the pain endured was unbearable and crushing. It was my loving Fathers comforting and soothing soft voice that brought encouragement and strength to not only endure them but to prosper through them (yes, sometimes Jehovah allow us to go through the dross to remove the impurities in us to mould us into even more beautiful children of His). I am eternally grateful to Him for this blessing. There truly is no other god like Him

There has been numberless times when I was blessed with His immeasurable love that filled every molecule in the body with total and complete joy to the extent that it felt like I was going to explode in ecstasy. There is nothing to compare with that experience. I am eternally grateful to Him for this blessing. There truly is no other god like Him.

God is a God of the present. God is always in the moment, be that moment hard or easy, joyful or painful. Henri Nouwen

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) for being with me through all of my trials and tribulations, sorrows and snares. I never would have made it without You. Thank you my Beloved Father for blessing me with communion with You. It makes my heart dance with joy every time I am in Your loving presence. I exalt You in the name of He with whom I long to spend eternity with 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

The Recycle Man

do not allow them to control you

Today I am grateful that the Lord had me sleep in as late as He did. Normally I get up early in the morning, however, today I slept in. This was a blessing.

Moms nephew came for a visit and was gone by the time I came in the house (I sleep out in our Tabernacle, a tent, which is where I enjoy communion with Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit every day).

He is nothing but trouble. He is a drug abuser, drunk, thief and trouble maker. She for some strange reason likes him. I would not spit on the best side of him if he had one.  I praise the Lord for the gift of extra pleasant sleep in order to avoid a spawn of the devil.

 

 

Every year I like to make Christmas cards out of photo’s of our cats (everybody adores them and really looks forward to receiving them) and share them with friends and important overworked  and underappreciated folks in our community.

These include police officers, doctors, nurses, personal support workers, fire fighters, ambulance attendants and the garbage collectors.

As well, I make a point to give special ones to pastors and Christian councilors (I believe they are the most over worked and under appreciated of them all.

The week before Christmas and the week after I forgot to give the recycle man his Christmas card and gift.

Today when looking out the widow I saw his truck drive by. He drives to the end of the street, turns around and collects the other side. I quickly got his gifts and card and dashed out to give them to him. He was very happy and we enjoyed a great conversation.

I am grateful for the Lord having me look out the window at that precise time and reminding me about the Christmas gift and card.

loving to each other

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh (God provides) for providing me the opportunity to enjoy sleep rather than endure being in the presence of a wicked one.

Thank you my love for providing me with the opportunity to share some cheer with another to bring glory to Your Holy name.

I praise You in the name of He who refrained being the the presence of the wicked ones and who gladly enjoyed sharing with others Jesus Christ. Amen

Stay away from wicked men less they pollute your soul and take you to Hell with them. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Giving unto others enriches not only them but you as well. Joseph a son of Jehovah
