Regret is Stronger than Gratitude.

be loving like jesus

Do not neglect to extend hospitality to strangers [especially among the family of believers—being friendly, cordial, and gracious, sharing the comforts of your home and doing your part generously]Hebrews 13:2 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

I have seen more people come to a friend or family members funeral than to their house to visit them while they are alive. I hear them wail how much they will miss their relative or friend when in life they neglected them. It is so phony it is pathetic.

I make it a point to be respectful, polite and friendly with every one when possible (there are some unlovable folks in this world who will do nothing but abuse you and use you. They bring nothing but grief to the heart and misery to the life. Those ones are avoided like the plague). You never know if the next time you see them they will be in a casket.

Now that is not the reason to be respectful, polite and friendly with them, we do so as an extension of Christs love in our hearts. We have no regrets at any funeral though.

“Dead people receive more flowers than the living because regret is stronger than gratitude.” Anne Frank

Prayer: Please Jehovah Kal El (voice of God) bless me that my voice may always echo Your voice of love, respect and encouragement to all that come my way this day and every day. I humbly beseech You in the name of He who always spoke in a loving tone when He walked among us Jesus Christ. Amen

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

You are a Stubborn Fool.

CALMS THE STORMS

For the Lord God, the Holy One of Israel has said this, “In returning [to Me] and rest you shall be saved, In quietness and confident trust is your strength.” But you were not willing Isaiah 30:15 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

So many times when in stress, pain and uncertainty Jehovah is gracious and comes to us offering relief. To receive this relief we must obey His guidance and trust Him.

Instead too many are dim witted and arrogantly tell Jehovah that they can handle the situation themselves (which they know they cannot because it has them stressed out. Too many laugh at Jehovahs guidance and believe their idiotic plans are superior to Him. Not only does their plans fail but their stress level sky rockets until they crash and burn. Then, they go and cry baby to Jehovah about how bad of a God he was because He refused to help them. Oh, the stupidity of it all.

Notice, if you will, that this passage is concerning those of Jehovahs family. They of all souls should know better so they are even bigger idiots. It happens to us all but the wise learn from this and change both their attitude and their actions.

When you refuse to come unto  and obey Jehovah you are a stubborn fool of which there is nothing to compare. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: I wish there was some manner in which I could comfort You Jehovah Tsidkenu (The Lord is Righteousness) for when the fools pierce Your heart with grief because they arrogantly refuse to accept Your guidance in the right way of living. I thank You for said guidance and pray that I always listen, understand and obey Your wisdom. I sincerely ask and pray this in the name of the wisest teacher of all Jesus Christ. Amen

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

God Cannot Give Us

christ's peace

 “Glory to God in the highest [heaven], And on earth peace among men with whom He is well-pleased.” Luke 2:14 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Do you notice the part in this verse that says that Jehovah blesses those with whom He is well pleased with peace? 

What incentive would Jehovah have to bless those who reject Him with peace? Especially, when you consider, that those who displease Jehovah do so in an act of rebellion unto Him.

Would you give a naughty son or daughter a gift? No? Why not? Is it because they do nothing but cause you grief and chances are they are abusive to other family members?

So too it is with Jehovah. Those that reject Him cause Him a lot of grief. As well, they do nothing but make life miserable for those that are in His family.

Is there no peace in your life? Could it be that it is because you are arrogant and naughty towards Jehovah and those in His family?

God cannot give us a happiness and peace apart from Himself, because it is not there. C. S. Lewis

Prayer:Thank you El SIMCHAH GIYL (God my Exceeding Joy) for blessing me with exceeding joy by being in communion with You. There is nothing to compare with the exhilaration of being in Your ;loving presence. I exalt You in the name of He whose very name causes my heart to dance with joy Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Begin with Me.

work-in-progress

 My people, who are called by My Name, humble themselves, and pray and seek (crave, require as a necessity) My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear [them] from heaven, and forgive their sin and heal their land. 2 Chronicles 7:14 The Holy Bible Amplified Version  

This is the sequence of seeking reconciliation with with Jehovah.   

First you must humble yourself before Jehovah. Do not attempt to speak with Him as an equal or as if you are superior but rather as a repentant naughty child

Then you must have a deep remorse for your sins as a child who was naughty and has brought great grief unto the relative they love so much (I say relative because many do not have loving parents but everyone has a relative they have a deep loving relationship with). This must be done to continue with a desire improve our deep loving relationship with our Heavenly Father.

Finally we must turn from our wicked ways less they destroy this most important of all loving relationship.                

All wickedness has selfishness at its core. Joseph a son of Jehovah                   

We must turn from me first to Jehovah first. Then Jehovah will listen to our prayers. Then Our sins will be forgiven. Then our spirit will be healed first above all others.

“Lord revive Your church and begin with me.” — Chinese Christian

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Go’el (The Lord is my Redeemer) for redeeming my body, spirit and mind when I sincerely repent unto You. I exalt You in the name of He whose cherished blood made this all possible Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Let Him Do the Holding

                                             

 ‘Do not fear [anything], for I am with you; Do not be afraid, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, be assured I will help you; I will certainly take hold of you with My righteous right hand [a hand of justice, of power, of victory, of salvation].’ Isaiah 41:10 Holy Bible Amplified Version

One of the hardest parts of becoming a Christian for me was letting go and allowing Jehovah to take control. I am glad that I have finally succumb. After all, He is far wiser than I, has much more resources to deal with circumstances than I and has all power.

The end result is a life with a lot less stress, grief, frustration, worry and fear in my life.

Why not give it a try?

Why not reach out your hand and say: “ Lord please take my hand and guide me through these stormy waters.” ?

“Don’t trust to hold God’s hand; let Him hold yours. Let Him do the holding, and you the trusting.” — Hammer William Webb-Peploe

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) for the privilege of being able to always hold Your strong, firm yet gentle hand in my feeble hand as we walk through life together. It is so comforting and encouraging. I praise You in the name of He whose hand guided His beloved disciples so well Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Introverts are Closer To.

Early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left [the house], and went out to a secluded place, and was praying there. Mark 1:35 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

This is why I believe introverts are closer to Jehovah than extroverts.

Introverts thrive on being alone in quiet places. That is the only place to be blessed with true communion with Jehovah.

Extroverts are always busy (usually having fun) and no time to be in quiet solitude with our Beloved.

How are you to worship someone you spend little to no time with?

How are you supposed to listen to His voice if your too busy to sit quietly and listen to Him?

How are you supposed to share the wonders of His creation if you are too busy shopping or doing sports or any other activity that steal time from Him?

Us introverts thrive on solitude with Jehovah. It is the air we breathe. And, it blesses us with extreme closeness with Jehovah and His wonders. And, added benefit is that spending quiet time alone with our Beloved is good for our mental health. It melts away our anxiety, anger, worry and grief (it certainly does me) as He reassures us that everything is okay. He is taking care of it. It is good for our physical health. Because we have less stress on our minds it is beneficial for our bodies. And best of all it is fabulous for our spiritual health. Experiencing Jehovahs Divine love for us renews and strengthens our spirits.

Solitude matters, and for some people, it’s the air they breathe” Susan Cain

Prayer: All praise and glory unto You Jehovah-‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) for blessing me with always being oh so very close with me in our cherished quiet times. They are the most special times in my life. I praise You in the name of He whom is my best friend that I delight in being with as much as possible 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
