To My Dear Cherished

In the morning, O Lord, I will direct my song and my prayer unto You and will look up. (Psalm 5:3)

To My dear cherished Poppa : Good morning Poppa This is the day that You have made and I rejoice and be glad for the gift of it.

With gratitude, I thank You for preserving my life for one more day.

With gratitude, I thank you for Your ultimate gift of love for me, in the form of Your Son and the sacrifice of His life on my behalf. Because of this overwhelming gift that I often cannot comprehend, I humbly submit to You.

I know Lord, that I am a mere human and cannot instruct You, but you Lord bless me with The Holy Spirit to instruct me.

So teach me Your ways that I may rely on Your steadfast faithfulness. Teach me to number my days and to use my time wisely. I don’t know what this day holds, but I know that You hold the day.

It was you that laid the foundations of the Earth and therefore understands every part of it. I know that you keep the sun in the sky, the stars in place, and have created this Earth for me to inhabit and enjoy.

Throughout this day, may I be always be keenly aware of Your presence in everything I do – as I commute to work, drop children off at school, keep house and speak with my neighbors.

May my life be a living example and may others see Christ in me.

There are many that are hurting in this world – may I be a salve to someone today Lord, in a way that I can’t even imagine.

May my words be seasoned with salt and minister grace to all that hear.

May my actions be aligned with your Word.

I pray for wisdom that is peaceable, gentle, and approachable, with lots of mercy and fairness. You said an unlimited supply of wisdom is available to me if I simply ask, I so humbly request for wisdom to know how to deal with the many people and situations that will cross my path.

I pray for protection throughout this day; protect from harm and evil; go before me, to the left and right of me and behind me. Guide my steps so that I walk worthy of Your calling throughout this day. May I always be sensitive to Your promptings – whether it shows up as a gentle tug or a strong conviction. I pray for reconciliation in families, in nations and to You.

I pray that all may come to know you and be reconciled back to You.

Poppa, you know my faults and my flaws, please forgive me for being unkind with my words and my thoughts; forgive me for being self-serving; forgive me for holding on to old wounds instead of giving them to You.

Please forgive me, Poppa. When I am overwhelmed, confused, unsure, and restless, help me run to Your Word, The Holy Bible.

May your Word come alive to me so that it is a living guide in every situation I encounter this day.

Help me, Poppa, to remember the promises of your Word and bring the right passage to my remembrance for the situation I encounter. I acknowledge Poppa that I need to spend more time with You reading and praying so that I am prepared for whatever the day brings. Poppa I know that your Word is indeed a light unto my feet and a light unto the path You have chosen for me to walk this day .

Please remove fear and anxiety. from my heart and mind . As believers You have not given me a spirit of fear, but of love power and a sound mind. So when I are fearful, please remind me of Your love for me and use that love as the impetus to love others and see situations differently; may I tap into the power that you have given me, for I am never alone because You have not left me comfortless.

May Your wisdom be the underpinnings for my sound mind.

May I remember that I do not have to be anxious and when I am tempted to be anxious or worrisome, may I verbalize my concerns to you and then leave them there as You taught me to do. Worry does me no good and limits me, and You do more with my worry than I ever could. So please help me to turn all of my anxious thoughts and nerve-wracking situations over to You; to truly do that and trust that You are working. That You are working all things together for my good because You love me; that You are working in ways that I cannot comprehend because Your ways always supersede mine. And that in this working You are molding me continually into masterpieces fit for Your use.

Thank You for increasing my faith and capacity to love You by being loving towards others just as You are loving towards me.

As a child of yours Lord, I know that I am Your masterpiece though sometimes I feel so far from it. Please help me to remember my worth in You when I’m faced with challenging situations.

When I feel depressed, help me to remember that I am fearfully and wonderfully made in Your image , a replica of You and that You loved me so much You thought that I was worth dying for.

I do not know anyone that would die for me, but Your beautiful Son, my best friend did, and I’m eternally grateful and humbled for His supreme gift of love towards me.

For the unseen, Poppa, I thank you. You are beyond understanding, You are abundant, you are mine, and I am Yours. I totally and completely submit everything in my life to You today,

I humbly request this in the name of He who humbly went to the cross for me, Jesus Christ. Amen.

May your heart, mind and feet walk hand in hand with Christ this day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Why We All Need

The Father is the One Who judges you by what you do. 1 Peter 1:17 The Holy Bible, the New Life Version

We all come from dysfunctional families, that is why we all need Christ.

Yes, we all have inherited addictions like alcoholism and bad traits like stubbornness but that does not excuse our behaviour.

When we surrender to Christ, He burns those off and replaces them with Holy addictions, like desiring sharing what it is like to spend time with Jesus instead of being a tongue wagger- gossiper and depending upon the Holy Spirit to bless us with self control instead of stupidly going in debt buying things we do not need.

This is not a one off experience but one that lasts a life time.

I have walked with Christ for forty years and He is still burning of undesirable traits and replacing them with righteous ones.

“Do not remember the former things, Or ponder the things of the past. “Listen carefully, I am about to do a new thing, Isaiah 43:18-19 The Holy Bible, The New Living Version

Now do not be discouraged when those around you – especially family and old friends – laugh at you when you begin this transformation experience. Many will vilify and hate you. You will have to walk away from them and towards Christ. You are responsible unto Christ for your actions, not them.

“Above all the grace and gifts that Christ gives to his beloved is that of overcoming self.” — Francis of Assisi

It is extremely difficult but the big three are there to help you, encourage you, and guide you. They are of course: Jehovah our loving Father, Jesus Christ, our best friend and the Holy Spirit our teacher, guidance Councillor, healers, comforter, encourager and strengthener.

“Self is the opaque veil that hides the face of God from us. It can be removed only in spiritual experience, never by mere instruction.” — A. W. Tozer

Listen to them as they guide you on the difficult road to Heavens Gate instead of those that are on the Highway to Hell.

Do you get excited about investing the time, talent, and resources God has given you this day, so on that day you will hear Him say, ‘Well done good and faithful servant?'”Terry A. Parker

I do not care what he says, she says or they say, I care about what Christ says. And then obeying His wise voice. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah, Jesus and Holy Spirit ‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You – Judges 6:12 ) for blessing me with Your continuous presence as You transform me into the beautiful child You desire for me to be. I exalt You in the name of the most beautiful Son, Jesus Christ. Amen

But the Lord is faithful; he will strengthen you and guard you from the evil one. 2 Thessalonians 3:3 The Holy Bible New Living Translation

It Is in Reflecting Back

I will never leave you nor forsake you. Joshua 1:5 The Holy Bible, The New International Version

Oh my Heavenly Love I ,with great glee, love to praise You in the good times.

In the difficult times I look forward to understanding what You are teaching me in them and thank You for them.

It is in reflecting back on Your guidance and protection during the previous crisis which calms my heart, blesses me with assurance You are there now during the present hard times. This fills my heart with bubbling over songs of love, praise, gratitude and adoration for my most precious Heavenly Love.

In the name of He who sang songs of praise to You on the night before His crucifixion, Jesus Christ I exalt You. 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

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

Captain of This Ship

 Please forgive me Jehovah ELOHIM YAKOL (God, the Most Able 2 Corinthians 9:8 ) for allowing my thoughts to foolishly stray and see storms instead of keeping me focus on the helmsman that steers the ship through the storms.                                           

 Please Holy Spirit help me to have trust in my strong, capable Captain of this ship, Jesus Christ. When I focus on He who has navigated so many through tremulousness hurricanes successfully it brings peace, confidence and courage to face the crashing waves.                                                                                                   

 I give thanks and sincerely request this in the name of the Captain of my lifes ship, 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. Joseph a son of Jehovah

What About Him?

 Peter asked Jesus, “What about him, Lord?” Jesus replied, “If I want him to remain alive until I return, what is that to you? As for you, follow me.” John 21:21-22 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Who is your What about him?

Is it someone you know that is breezing by in life while being a Stephen Scammer and getting away with it and even prospering in it?

Is it someone who needs help but the Lord is calling you to serve Him somewhere else? Is it someone who has done you wrong and it seems as if they have impunity from justice?

Take you eyes off of them and concentrate on what Jesus wants you to do for Him. Have faith (which means trust) that Christ will always do what is right in His time, in His way.

Jesus please bless me to stay focused on You and not on those around me, especially those who have done me wrong and I am faithfully waiting for Your justice to come upon them. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Immeka (Judges 6:12 The LORD Is with You) Jehovah for walking with me every day. Please help me to remember that as I walk the path You have chosen for me today and every day that leads to Your Heavenly Home You have graciously prepared for me. I thank you and ask this of You in the name of He with whom I look forward to sharing the biggest hug of welcome ever with Jesus Christ. Amen

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

I am Not Afraid.

 I am not afraid, for the Holy Spirit is with me. I am not discouraged, for Jehovah is my God. Jesus strengthens me and helps me. He holds me up with His victorious right hand. Isaiah 41:10 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Please my Beloved Jehovah Gibbor Milchamah (Psalms 24:8The LORD Mighty In Battle) whenever hard times come always help me to remember that You have promised that You would never leave me nor desert me and that You are always true to Your word. Jesus has said, I will never fail you. I will never abandon you. ”Hebrews 13:5 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

I know that when satan is attacking his hardest it is to prevent me from accomplishing important tasks You have prepared for me to do to bring honour to You and to bring the little lost sheep to You.

Keep awake! Watch at all times. The devil is working against me. He is walking around like a hungry lion with his mouth open. He is looking for someone to eat 1Peter 5:6-8 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

When all seems lost, please remind me that You are right there beside me, walking me to glorious victory in Your beautiful name. You have promised that the battle is not mine but Yours to win. I know many battles will not be won instantly but take time.

The Lord my God is with me, a Powerful One Who wins the battle. He has much joy over me. With His love He gives me new life. He has joy over me with loud singing. Zephaniah 3:17 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Please enlarge my faith (trust) in You to bring it to a magnificent completion. Remembering the past victories cause me to sing songs of gratitude and joy for the victory You are bringing me in this battle.

I pray this in the name of my most glorious King of Kings, Jesus Christ. Amen

No Matter What The

Trust in and rely confidently on the Lord with all your heart And do not rely on your own insight or understanding. In all your ways know and acknowledge and recognize Him. And He will make your paths straight and smooth [removing obstacles that block your way]. The No matter what the situation leave it in Gods hands. Proverbs 3:5-6 The Holy Bible, The Amplified Version

Are you concerned about not having enough money at the end of the month, leave it in Gods hands (now He may suggest you stop wasting money in restaurants and start making your own coffee and start brown bagging it). When I was working I would make meals on my day off to last me the rest of the week. They were not all the same. You can get every creative with the Holy Spirit as your cooking guide as well. 

Are you concerned about a health issue, leave it in Gods hands (now He may suggest you change your diet and start getting exercise). He did with me and boy do I ever feel much healthier.

Are you concerned about relationship problems, leave it in Gods hands (now He may suggest you get rid of those who are nothing but problems and are users and abusers in your life which may be hard but is best for you).

I leave it in Gods hands. He loves me, He always wants what is best for me and will work it out for my best interest. Joseph a son of Jehovah 

Prayer:  Thank you Jehovah Ori (Psalms 27:1 The LORD My Light) that as I trust in You, You always light the proper way to go in very aspect of my life. I praise You in the deepest gratitude in the name of the light of the world, Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Thank You.

 Enter his gates with thanksgiving; go into his courts with praise. Give thanks to him and praise his name. Psalm 100:4 The Holy Bible The New Living Translation

Oh my Love, thank you that no matter how strong the storms lash at me whenever I recollect all the blessings You have generously bestowed upon me, my heart cannot but dance with joy. With each stanza of thanks Your bright light of love comes ever more powerful and evaporates the most stubborn of darkness in my heart.

And, of course, there is the greatest gift You bless me with which creates an euphoria in my heart, that is when You bless me with communion with You.

Thank you that whatever the burden is that is heavy upon my shoulders I go into a quiet place to be with You and You bless me with a lightened heart that dances a jig of gratitude for all of Your graciousness You have generously bestowed upon me and this strengthens me to continue on.

I thank you in the name of He who understands what I am going through because He has walked in my shoes, my closest confidant with whom I share all my challenges with because He understand Jesus Christ. Amen

May the light of Christs love shine brightly in your heart today and every day Joseph a son of Jehovah
