We All Have Them

CONFESS

 You may be sure that your sin will find you out. Numbers 32:23 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

We all have them dark sins that we do not want anybody to find out because it will bring us great shame. It is habitual sin, habits that we know are wrong but we are addicted to. They are not life altering sins but annoying little pests. They need to be consistently repented of or else they will become cancerous and slowly destroy us.

I believe Jehovah allows these to keep us humble. Another reason is to keep us grateful for such a forgiving Heavenly Father.

And, finally, to help us to be just as grateful unto those that offend us when they repent as our gracious Father forgives us when we repent.

If we refuse to repent, He will publicly expose them to cause us shame, just as He did to David.

Get rid of your little sins because if you do not they only lead you to committing the bigger ones. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Mekaddishkem (Exodus 31:13) – The LORD that Sanctifies You that when I repent, Your holy pure blood washes my sins away like the waves wash the sand away on a beach. I praise You for this precious gracious gift in Your magnificent name. Amen

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

You are Mine.

NEVER ENDING LOVE AFFAIR

 

I have called you by name; you are mine. Isaiah 43:1 The Holy Bible New Living Translation

There are two important facts in this verse.

The first one states that Jehovah calls out to you. No one “finds Jesus” as if it were some effort on their own. Jesus comes to you. Do not be arrogant and take credit for something you did not do. Instead, be eternally grateful every day. Thank Jehovah and Jesus for coming to you, bringing you out of darkness and into their brilliant light of love.

Second: We all belong to something. Perhaps, it is a sports team or a type of music or whatever it may be, there is always something that owns our heart.

For me, Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit own my mind, body and spirit. And, I cannot think of anyone or anything that is more loving and caring than them. It is a great comfort and encouragement knowing that I belong to them.

We are adopted into the most royal family of all. That makes us sons and daughters of our Heavenly Father Jehovah. What an awesome reality. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer : Thank you Jehovah Abba (God our Father) for calling out to me from the darkness to come into Your Divine light. Thank you for adopting me into Your Holy family and for the blessing of always being able to commune with my Poppa (You), my big brother (Jesus) and my amazing Guidance Councillor (the Holy Spirit). I exalt You fro these awesome gifts in the name of my big brother 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 am Grateful That There Was Today

   

Let us come to him with thanksgiving. Let us sing psalms of praise to him. Psalm 95:2 Holy Bible, New Living Translation

  I am grateful that the Lord held off the bad storm so that I could take mom out for her birthday at a special restaurant.

I am grateful that there was two families at the restaurant whose children were very well behaved and a delight to watch and talk with (well except the baby, she could not talk ha ha).

I an grateful that the church parking lot was not an ice rink today (Sunday), mom has walking disabilities.

I am grateful that the Lord protected me as we experienced 80 mile an hour winds and none of the trees fell on our Sanctuary (the meeting place between our Heavenly Beloved and me, that is where I sleep in great peace) and there was no blizzard as predicted (it seemed to happen all around us but not in our area) .

I am grateful that the Lord guided me to a web site where adult coloring pages can be downloaded (they are downloaded and printed off for mom and for seniors at a local seniors home.

Be grateful for the simple blessings and they add up to a great big daily one. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah JIREH (God who supplies) with these wonderful gifts to share with others. I exalt You in the name of Your most wonderful gift 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

P.S. This was written during the winter and I am just getting around to publishing it now.

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.

joygiftfromgod

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
