Is He Who Trusts.

                               

He who pays attention to the word [of God] will find good, And blessed (happy, prosperous, to be admired) is he who trusts [confidently] in the Lord. Proverbs 16:20 Holy Bible Amplified Version

I do not believe the word happy should be in the above verse but rather joy.

Happiness in physical while joy is spiritual. Joy is always supreme to happiness.

To be prosperous, to me, does not indicate material things but rather spiritual.

To trust that my sins are forgiven brings joy to my heart, which is spiritual.

To know that the present is in the hands of the all wise and all loving Father in whom I trust brings peace to my spirit.

Too know that Jehovah is guiding my life both in the present and in the future brings confidence to my spirit.

These are to be greatly admired gifts from our loving Father and to be thankful for each and every day.

“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 Jehovah-Shammah ( The Lord is Present) for Your amazing grace that You are always with me in both the good times and the bad. It is comforting and reassuring to know someone as awesome as You walks with me throughout my day. I exalth Thee in the name of He who walks with me and talks with me throughout each and every day Jesus Christ. Amen

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

All Things are Possible

                                       

But Jesus looked at them and said, “With people [as far as it depends on them] it is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” Matthew 19:26 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

All thing are possible with Jehovah but not all things are probable.

So we will say you want money to go to school to become a veterinarian but Jehovah wants you to become a waitress. He will not grant you that for which He has not made you for.

However that does not take away the fact that He can and does accomplish the improbable in our lives.

If you had of told my mom when I was ten years old what Jehovah had planned for my life she would have laughed so hard she would have been in tears. It would not only have seemed improbable but down right impossible.

Jehovah works in His way not ours. It is our duty to have faith (trust) in Him that His ways are always what is best for us, even if we do not understand it and to obey His guidance.

“Do not let your happiness depend on something you may lose… only [upon] the Beloved who will never pass away.” — C. S. Lewis

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) for blessing me with what I need, not what I desire in my walk with You. Thank you for providing me with the necessary resources to serve You every day throughout the day so as to give glory and praise unto You and to be a light in the dark world that guides the lost unto You. I exalt You in the name of the light of the world Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Did My Soul Become.

                                                  

 The one who is taught the word [of God] is to share all good things. Galatians 6:6 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

This is something I believe is needed in our society today. Instead of the me generation we need to be teaching the younger generation the We Generation.

So many folks are chasing after pleasure in the material world only to discover that there is an emptiness inside them. That emptiness is love for others.

I do not know of any who volunteer in the community that suffers depression.

The greatest treasure is the richness of the heart. The only way to enrich yourself in this treasure is to give it away. The more you give away the greater your treasure will be. Joseph a son of Jehovah

As well, when the community is involved in doing volunteer work within the community there will be less vandalism because folks have invested time in the community. So if people volunteer to do clean up in a park they are less likely to vandalize it. When they go and cut the grass or shovel the snow out of a needy neighbours property they will be less likely to vandalize it or do a break and enter there.

The less I spent on myself, the more I gave to others, the fuller of happiness and blessing did my soul become. –Hudson Taylor Prayer:

Thank you Jehovah Heseh (God is love) for blessing me with teaching me how to be loving towards others and then providing me with ample opportunities to exhibit Your divine love within my local community. I exalt Thee in the name of He who was and is the perfect example of love Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day. It is in our greatest time of need that we grow the closest to Christ.

Think of This     

                                                                                                                                              

And if you have not been faithful in the use of that [earthly wealth] which belongs to another [whether God or man, and of which you are a trustee], who will give you that which is your own? Luke 16:12 Holy Bible, Amplified Version                                                       

Think of this verse before you a go asking Jehovah to give you anything.                              

If you show up late, do not do your job or do not do it properly, leave early and or take days off why should you expect Jehovah to give you anything if you cannot be trusted with your job?                            

So if it is your duty to run a machine and do not take proper care of it why should you expect Jehovah to give you a house or car if you have proven you cannot or will not take care of the machine that is your responsibly?   

If you are dishonest and steal from your employer why should you expect Jehovah to bless you with a better neighbourhood to live in?             

The less I spent on myself, the more I gave to others, the fuller of happiness and blessing did my soul become. –Hudson Taylor (1832–1905)

 Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emunah (God is faithful) for blessing me with untold spiritual blessings as well as material ones when I give unto others as a gift of love unto You. I exalt Thee in the name of He who gave His blood for my salvation Jesus Christ. Amen

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

That is Our Golden Years.

For to me, to live is Christ [He is my source of joy, my reason to live] and to die is gain [for I will be with Him in eternity]. Philippians 1:21 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Even though I was living a comfortable life by the worlds standards there was something missing. There was a lot of volunteer work in the community but there was something missing. There was a huge hole in my heart for love, joy and purpose. It stayed that way for many years.

I have lived both the life of worldly luxury and the world of Christly extravagance and I chose Christ’s over the world every time. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Then, slowly after my live was committed unto Christ the hole became smaller and smaller until it was non-exsistant. It was replaced by a meaning in life: being a free will servant of my Heavenly King, Jesus Christ. He was my reason to live. There was Heavenly joy in my heart which is uncomparable to the empty happiness offered by the world. The Divine love between Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit and I share is uncombarable to anything the world has to offer. Now I am truly living in my golden years.

When we live moment by moment in Christs love, that is our golden years. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Abba (God our Father) for blessing me with Divine meaning in my life and Your Divine love and joy in my heart. I exalt You in the name of my best friend whose companionship I cherish Jesus Christ. Amen

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

The First and Most Important Part

But as for us, we will bless and affectionately and gratefully praise the Lord From this time forth and forever. Praise the Lord! (Hallelujah!).Psalm 115:18 Holy Bible Amplified Version

In my morning prayers the first and most important part of it is saying thank you to my Beloved Father, King and Holy Teacher (the Holy Spirit).

You may not feel like being thankful because you are experiencing hard times but you should be grateful for them because it is in the hard times that we grow closer to Jehovah and we grow the most in our maturity.

All throughout the day prayers of gratitude are offered for the numerous blessings both big and small that Jehovah showers upon me.

At the end of the day the first part of the prayer is saying thank you for all the blessings He has generously blessed me with through out the day.

The end result of this is a deeper loving relationship with my Beloved and a greater gratitude for His loving disposition towards me. That creates a more loving, grateful and cheerful heart in my daily life.

The most important part of prayer is that of gratitude. Joseph a son of Jehovah

“God is good, he cares, forgives, loves us at all times. Surely we must always thank him for what he does.” — Nancy Irene

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Heseh (God is love) for Your amazing abundant love that nourishes my spirit every day. I exalt You in the name of my Heavenly King who preformed the most amazing act of love for me on the cross Jesus Christ. Amen

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

He Washes Them Away.

waterfalls tumbling into chartreuse lake between exotic trees

Peace I leave with you; My [perfect] peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be afraid. [Let My perfect peace calm you in every circumstance and give you courage and strength for every challenge.]. John 14:27 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

Have you ever sat by the shore of a lake or ocean?

I like to sit there and relax. As the waves go out they grab my anger, fear, frustration, worry and sorrow and carry them away. I believe that is a gift from Jehovah as He washes them away. As the waves come in they fill me with peace. I believe that is a gift from Jehovah as He fills me with His divine peace love and joy.

Now, we do not need an ocean or lake to experience this blessing but it is experienced its most effective in nature. Try sitting by a small creek with little rapids or a quite forest or a quiet meadow.

Here is the formula I use: first I close my eyes and bawl my eyes out unto my Heavenly Father what ever the problem is. Then I sit there quietly while He blesses me with enveloping me in His loving, comforting arms. Once He has filled me with His Divine peace I slowly open my eyes and He reveals all the beauty around me He has created. Every time there is an over whelming feeling of love, joy, peace and awe. I fill at one with my Beloved and cannot but help shout out “ I love You oh Holy Father, I love You.” It is truly the most amazing experience I have ever been blessed with.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Shalom (The Lord blesses with Peace) for Your blessings of bountiful peace during the storms that crash around me and the fires that surround me through out my walk with You. I magnify You in the name of the Price of Peace Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.
