Is an Empty Life

foolish acts

 

 A pretentious, showy life is an empty life; a plain and simple life is a full life. Proverbs 13:7 The Message

I remember being laughed at for having a simple basic cell phone. Can it be used to send and receive calls, yes. Can it be used to send and receive tex messages Yes. Then what more do I need. These folks would then laugh and tell me about all the gadgets on their cell phones. The questions asked would be do you need or use them do you know how to work them all they why did you waste all that money purchasing something you will not use Of course they would brag about it being a certain make while mine was from a lesser known (although reliable) maker. Then they would be asked how much they paid for said cell phone to which they would respond that they paid over a hundred times more that I did. So you went into debt just to pump up your ego? Sounds foolish to me. Then they are miserable because they become slaves to the banks paying for an overpriced piece of metal while I am living a contented life.

It is the same with clothes, food and living accommodations and every other aspect of life. They stupidly go into debt way over their head and live a miserable life while I live a simple life walking with Christ and am quite contented and grateful for His blessings of meeting my daily needs.

He who loves money will not be satisfied with money, nor he who loves abundance with its gain. This too is vanity (emptiness). Ecclesiastes. 5:10 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Follow the proper leader.

Jesus lived a simple life in communion with Jehovah and was very content. Should we not follow His lead? Joseph a son of Jehovah

Greed and vanity are a sin and there is always a price to pay for following the devils lead

“Sin will take you farther than you want to go, keep you longer than you want to stay, and cost you more than you want to pay.” — Author Unknown

Prayer: Exaltation unto You oh most sanctified Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) for generous provision You faithfully provided me with every day. I extol Thee in the name of He whose cherished blood provides the key to open Heavens door 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

Prayer Must Be

A PRAYING MAN        

 

Prayer is the communion of the regenerated soul with its Divine Parent.

Prayer is God’s own instituted means of obtaining blessings from Him, the Fountain of life.

Prayer must be sincere—we must really be desirous to obtain the blessings we ask.

Prayer must be holy—for if we “regard iniquity in our heart, the Lord will not hear us.”

Prayer must be pious—seeking to obtain blessings, not for our own gratification merely—but for God’s glory. Prayer is a relief and comfort to the troubled soul. Prayer must be importunate—for it is the effectual, fervent prayer of a righteous man, that prevails.

Prayer must be submissive—asking only for what it is God’s will to bestow. Prayer must be in love— love for our Heavenly Father and prayer for our fellow man, whether they be in Jehovahs Divine family or not. Prayer must be reverent—for our God is a consuming fire.

Prayer must be humble—for we are base, and sinful, and unworthy to lift up our eyes to heaven.

Prayer must be persevering—for men ought always to pray, and not to faint.

Prayer must be particular—for generalities mean little or nothing.

Prayer must be universal—entering into everything, all the concerns of life, all the means of grace.

Prayer must be of all kinds—social, domestic, private, spontaneous but never ritualized for that is a stench and insult to our Heavenly Beloved. Prayer must be grateful—abounding in thanksgiving.

Prayer must be expectant—waiting and watching for answers.

Prayer must be believing—we must ask in faith. Prayer must be consistent with the Word of God —we may ask for everything God has promised.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Immanuel (God is with us) for the ultimate treasure, the Your loving gift of communion with You through prayer. It is a precious jewel that I carry close to me, not just in our morning and evening conversations but those which we share throughout the day. I praise You in the name of He with whom I deeply desire to walk with and talk with every day Jesus Christ, my best friend. 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

Then I am Strong.

                                       

So I am well pleased with weaknesses, with insults, with distresses, with persecutions, and with difficulties, for the sake of Christ; for when I am weak [in human strength], then I am strong [truly able, truly powerful, truly drawing from God’s strength]. 2 Corinthians 12:10 Holy Bible Amplified Version

The world says: depend upon self, just try hard enough and you will succeed. That is a foolish fantasy. Sometimes you will succeed in the task but lose out on the reward of doing it in harmony with Jehovah. The other problem is you are doing what you want and not what Jehovah has made you to do. The fruition of this is unfulfillment in your endevour.

Christians, although we do not enjoy them, should be grateful for our weaknesses. Because, it is in our weaknesses that Christ is strong. The benefit of this is an ever closer relationship with Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit.

Depend upon self, wait for the fall. Depend upon Christ, be assured of the victory. Joseph a son of Jehovah.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Chatsahi (The Lord is my Strength) for supporting me in Your strong yet gentle arms when I am weak, when distress envelopes me, when I am wrongly persecuted and when sorrow and pain encompass my every being. I appreciate, love and adore You for these amazing attributes in the name of my strongest best friend Jesus Christ. Amen

May Gods sunshine always bless you with brightening your day with His love, joy and peace. Joseph a son of Jehovah

That is Not Friendship

                                                            

The man of too many friends [chosen indiscriminately] will be broken in pieces and come to ruin,
But there is a [true, loving] friend who [is reliable and] sticks closer than a brother. Proverbs 18:24
The Holy Bible Amplified Version

You see it a lot with professional sports (particularly basketball) and in music. Many of these so called super stars are surrounded with cling ons. These are parasites that cling on to you and suck everything they can out of you (in this case it is money). They constantly flatter the suckers and tell them how great they are. When their career is over most are bankrupt and on welfare. They go to the cling ons for help but are laughed at and rejected. The cling ons just move to another filled with vanity.

This is even more true with in families.

“Let him not trust in vanity (emptiness, futility) and be led astray; For emptiness will be his reward [for such living]. Job 15:31 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

When someone is your friend only because they want something from you, that is not friendship, that is abuse. Joseph: Anthony- Green

On the other hand there is the wise who take their time, pray for Jehovah’s guidance and He directs them to others who are true friends. We are always there for each other. You need help around the house and they find out about it, you need not call them because they are a knockn on your door ready to help.

And the same applies to them. I do not wait for the call, I go right over with tools in hand.

You are having problems in your life, they see it and are always there (and discreet, they will not gossip about it with anyone because that is betrayal of the worse kind). Right back at them.

I love to go for walks with someone who is a true friend in the bush or by a quiet stream and we talk about our problems with each other.

And of course, every good Christian knows that Jesus is their bestest friend right?

Jesus is always there, Jesus always cares, Jesus always loves you. He is the best friend you will ever need. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Pryyand (God is my friend) for the supreme privilege of being a friend of Yours, Jesus’ and the Holy Spirit’s. It is my most revered blessing in life. I am grateful to You in the name of my bestest friend 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 Greatest of Virtues

                                                        

For I am convinced [and continue to be convinced (beyond any doubt] that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present and threatening, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the [unlimited] love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. The greatest of blessings is to be loved by He who cares about us and for us like no one else can or will. He is always there. He always cares. He always blesses us with the best guidance. He blesses us with daily spiritual, mental and physical blessings. And best of all there is no experience like that of being in communion with His loving presence. Romans 8:38-39The Holy Bible Amplified Version

There is no love that can compare to Jehovahs Divine love for us. It is truly a Heavenly treasure of which we are to be grateful for in our daily lives and will continuously praise Him for in His Heavenly home. It is my spiritual breath. I cannot go a day without praising Him with whom loves me untold more than I could ever reciprocate. He is truly awesome.

And Jesus replied to him,“‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ Matthew 22:37 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

There is nothing or no one worthy of equaling much less surpassing Jehovahs place in my heart.

As Christ is our King that makes us He free will servants.

I can find no vocation equal to worth nor value as that of serving my Heavenly King in whom I am so deeply in love with.

There is nothing more worthy of my time that contemplating Jehovah by reading books, listening to the old hymns, writing articles to assist others in there walk with Him and creating engaging photo’s to glorify Him.

“To love God is the greatest of virtues; to be loved by God is the greatest of blessings.” Portuguese Proverb

Virtue is described as a commendable quality or trait Is there anything more commendable than loving He whose love for us surpasses anything else?

Prayer; Oh glory, glory excelsis unto You my most reverent loving Father in Heaven for double blessing me. The first blessing is Your supreme infinite love for me which is my greatest treasure. The second blessing is the privilege of loving the most majestic loving Father there could ever be. In the name of Your lost loving son Jesus Christ I do respectfully praise You. Amen

May Gods sunshine always bless you with brightening your day with His love, joy and peace. Joseph a son of Jehovah

The Original Pay it Forward.

Blessed [gratefully praised and adored] be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and the God of all comfort, who comforts and encourages us in every trouble so that we will be able to comfort and encourage those who are in any kind of trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God. 2 Corinthians 1:3-4 Holy Bible Amplified Version

In the United States and Canada there is a fad going around of paying for the customer behinds bill. It is at best a feel good experience with no long lasting effects.The original pay it forward is the supreme one which has meat to it and has eternal effects.

When we go through trials and tribulations, sorrows and snares, Jehovah Ezer (The LORD our Helper) helps us through them with His Divine comfort, encouragement, strength, provisions and peace. This is the original pay it forward.

As a result whenever we see another, whether they are of Jehovahs family or not we are to do unto others as He has done for us. The results may be an eternal blessing of an unbeliever accepting Christ.

It may prevent a member of our Holy Family from feeling rejected by the church ( the church of Christ is all Christians, not regulated to any one denomination).As a result they turn away from Christ which condemns them to Hell.

It may encourage a non-believer to desire to learn more of our Heavenly Father and desire to join His Divine family.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Abba (God our Father) guide my words and actions to emulate You today and every day so as to bring the little lost sheep to You and to strengthen and heal those in Your Holy Family who need some tender loving care. I sincerely request this in the name of He who was gentle, respectful and loving to all who were receptive unto Him as He walked amongst us Jesus Christ.

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

Be Thankful

In every situation [no matter what the circumstances] be thankful and continually give thanks to God; for this is the will of God for you in Christ Jesus.1 Thessalonians 5:18 Holy Bible Amplified Version

I desired to make raised flower beds for my aged mother who can no longer bend over to work in her flower beds and she loves her flower beds and working in them. I wanted ten skids and my friend suggested he could get a truck and we could pick them up the next day, but because the truck he wanted to borrow was not available he phoned and informed me we could only get three.

There was disappointment and anger in my heart because we agreed upon ten.

After talking with Jehovah became I became grateful for what was given and for my friends help and waited for him to come pick me up the next day to get the skids.

The friend showed up with five skids in the back of his SUV the next afternoon. When we went to the place where the skids were supposed to be they were all gone. He drove to the place where he saw the skids on the side of the road during his morning walk and we got five more.

Because of that the raised garden could be made ( even though it was not as big as I wanted. I wanted to build a pyramid raised garden but the skids were too small).

As well there was enough skids to use as the base to make another bigger raised garden using a discarded dresser drawer. Another blessing was Jehovah giving me an idea on how to make more raised gardens as a border for our flower beds using materials around the house that I never thought of.

As a consequence there was not a need for so many skids.

When we desire something but Jehovah does not give us what we want but are to still be appreciative. Then Jehovah multiplies His blessings upon us.

A faithful (right-minded) man will abound with blessings. Proverbs 28:20 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Jireh (God is our Provider) for providing for me the material necessary to build a monument of love towards Your cherished daughter, my mother and for the brother who graciously helped me. I thank You in the name of He who was grateful for the blessings of the disciples You sent unto Him Jesus Christ. Amen.

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