Product of Attitude and Thought.

COMPLETE DEDITACATION

 And blessed (happy, prosperous, to be admired) is he who trusts [confidently] in the Lord. Proverbs 16:20 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

Every day I pray for Jehovah to bless me with opening my eyes to all His blessings great and small. Joseph- Anthony: Green

When I do this my attitude is one of gratefulness and this creates a happy disposition in my daily life that flows out to those around me. Many times it brings light into anothers darkened day. They in turn share it with others. You may be surprised at just how much your positive attitude can change the environment you are in whether that be at school work or in society ( like on public transit). Now, the older we get the more deep wounds we have in our hearts from those who have abused us.

The devil will use these to play over and over again in your mind to steal away your happiness.

When this happens, why not pray for Jehovah to help you focus your thoughts on your amazing love affair with Him.

When you have a heart of gratitude there is no place for anger, fear or worry. Joseph- Anthony: Green

This is a blessing that must be asked for daily and be appreciated in the evening time with bed time prayers of gratitude unto the giver of these blessings.

Happiness is a product of attitude and thought. It comes from you, not to you. –Richard Daly

Prayer: Please Jehovah-Bara (The Lord Creator) bless me with creating a daily attitude and behaviour of gratitude for all the numerous blessing You abundantly graciously give me every day. Bless me with concentrating upon Your love to heal the deep wounds that have been inflicted upon my heart so that it will be filled with Your divine love to be shared with others through out the day today and every day. I sincerely request this in the name of He who taught His disciples gratitude as He walked with them Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Have My Joy Fulfilled

joy-and-peace

 But the fruit of the Spirit [the result of His presence within us] is love [unselfish concern for others],joy, [inner] peace, patience [not the ability to wait, but how we act while waiting], kindness, goodness, faithfulness. Galatians 5:22 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

I do not believe I have ever seen so many depressed and spiritually empty souls as there is today.

That is because they are happiness junkies. They are constantly seeking out physical stimuli to fill there desire for a few fleeting moments of happiness. You see these thrill junkies when they are having fun but have you seen them when they are not feeding their addiction to an adrenaline rush? The same is said for the fashion freaks with each new style or sports freaks with their teams or the list goes on. Just like a drug junkie when they do not have their fix they are irritable and depressed.

Happiness is physical and fleeting. Joy is spiritual and ever lasting. I choose joy. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Now, although we are a minority, I am and have seen Jesus junkies. We are the type that constantly needs a fix of Jesus’ Holy love, peace and joy. Of course, the only way to obtain this unending supply of these cherished gifts is to nourish an obedient loving relationship with Him. We do not require outside stimuli to get our fix because when we dwell with Christ it is in our Holy DNA every moment of every day.

“The Bible talks plentifully about joy, but it nowhere talks about a “happy Christian.” Happiness depends on what happens; joy does not. Remember, Jesus Christ had joy, and He prays “that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves.”” — Oswald Chambers

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-‘Ori (the Lord is my Light) for blessing me with Your amazing love and joy that You abundantly shine Your divine light into my heart each and every day. I am eternally grateful for this cherished blessing in the name of the light of my life Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Will Find It.

And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me. He who finds his life will lose it, and he who loses his life for My sake will find it. Matthew 10:38-39 New King James Version

How many for eons have folks wondered the meaning of life?

They foolishly waste their time amassing material wealth.

Those with the most toys when they die are not the happiest nor the riches, they are the saddest and poorest in spirit., Joseph- Anthony: Green

Chasing after satanic religions like buddihism or new agers still leaves them with a empty feeling and purpose.

There is only one way to enlightenment and that is through the Holy Spirit. All else is satan disguised as light as he leads you down to an eternal Hell. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Some try to maintain a super fit body all of their lives, sorry but you will be in for quite the shock on your death bed when you realize it was all for naught. We all die and then go to our eternal rewards’. That is not to say we should not take proper care of our bodies, just do not worship them.

Some find it in raising a family. Oh the deep sadness when their children grow up and they are left with an empty nest and an empty heart, especially if they distance themselves from you which is all too common today. There is nothing wrong with enjoying having a Christian family but those who worship their children and grand children are raising selfish, self centered child which grow into selfish, self centered adults. The only time they call mommy or daddy or grandma or grandpa is when they want money. They do not appreciate it and give nothing in return. They never call, come to visit or help. They are waiting for them to die so they can get their inheritance and spend it foolishly.  I unfortunately see all too often as seniors live a daily hell of loneliness and deep sadness in isolation. This is a shame upon the children and a disgrace.

Others worship their careers. It is all for naught. They will lose it when their career is out dated, which happens all too common today. In many instances people are replaced by robots. How about when you retire, then what are you going to do with your life if it has been centered on your career?

But when we become free willing servant to Christ our King we will find the true meaning of their lives when Jehovah blesses us with revealing it to them. It will not be easy the following path Jehovah has chosen for you but well worth it in our daily lives and in our eternal ones.

Following Christ is not easy but the rewards are Heavenly. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Rohi – Shepherd for being such a patient and wise Shepherd to this at times obstinate little , sheep. Please bless all who place their faith in You with guiding them to the lives You have purposed for them before they were even born. I exalt You and humble beseech You in the name of the greatest shepherd Jesus Christ. Amen.

May Jehovah bless you today and every day with His precious love, joy and peace.

He Hears You.

O You who hear prayer. Psalm 65:2 New King James Version

When you pray you are not praying to a dead idol made of wood or metal or some make believe fellow like Santa Claus or to dead souls, like the saints. That is foolishness.

Instead with reverence, love and sincerity pray to the living God whose throne is in Heaven.

He hears your cry when suffering sorrow. He blesses you with answers that give reassurance and healing.

He hears your cry when you need help. He answers with protection and resources to conquer your adversary.

He hears your cry when you are alone and feel dejected. He blesses you with filling you with His Divine love, comfort and encouragement. He hears your cry when you need guidance in your life. He blesses you with resources and guidance councilors to show you the path you must take.

He hears your cry when you are remorseful He not only forgives you but guides you in the proper manner to reconcile with the one you have done wrong. This blesses you with peace in your spirit.

He hears your cry when you need to learn something. He blesses you with wise teachers and mentors that reveal the knowledge you need.    And of course it is with pure delight he hears your song of praise for His love. To Him that is the sweetest song that ever exists. Of course when we are in a loving relationship we delight in sharing with the one we love how much we love them.

He cherishes your prayer of thank you when He blesses you. That is the respectful thing to do is it not? When you help someone does it not feel good when they thank you? How much more than should we thank our Beloved Father in Heaven when He blesses us?

GOD LOVES YOU

You do not need to make an appointment and he is never too busy. Jehovah is always there, Jehovah always cares. Joseph- Anthony: Green

When you continuously continue in a weakness (like being short tempered) He does not become exasperated with you and give up on you. When you honesty are repentant and humbly ask for forgiveness He will forgive you and thousand times a thousand.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Heseh (God is love) for being such a loving Father to this cherished child of Yours. Thank you for Your blessings of Your Hoy love, strength, wisdom, comfort and encouragement as Your never end provisions. I praise You in the name of Your most special blessing Your Holy Son Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

He is Awesome.

Come and see the works of God; He is awesome. Psalm 66:5 New King James Version

When I was working on an oil rig one winter in the far north we had the awesome experience of being surrounded by the Northern Lights. They just seemed to perform a deathly quiet gentle ballet all around us.

It was truly awesome.

Who do you think created those magnificent lights?

Jehovah did.He is truly awesome.

When I bicycled through a desert in Southern California it seemed as if the stars were so close to me I could reach out and touch them. It felt as if I was in space floating around them.

It was truly awesome.

Who do you think created all those stars?

Jehovah God did. He is truly awesome.

In the morning it was as quiet as a morgue. The red buttes seemed like long fingers of blood slowly reaching out to me.

It was truly awesome.

Who do you think created all those buttes?

Jehovah God did. He is truly awesome.

When camping in the Baja in Mexico every evening the sun would just hang in the sky and then slowly drift behind an island out to sea. The sea became a kaleidoscope of brilliant colours.

It was truly awesome.

Who do you think created all those buttes?

Jehovah God did. He is truly awesome.

When in Hong Kong I saw the sunrise slowly above some islands out at sea. The waves were like soft gentle waves of brilliant a kaleidoscope. It felt as if it was drawing me in to them.

It was truly awesome.

Who do you think created all those waves and the sun?

Jehovah God did. He is truly awesome.

After an ice storm I love to walk through the forest when the sun comes out. The branches glisten like diamonds and the forest is eerily quiet with the only sound being your foot steps crunching the ice covered ground.

It was truly awesome.

Who do you think created those ice crystals and the sun?

Jehovah God did. He is truly awesome.

In the spring time I love to walk through cheery or apple orchards in the early morning. The sweet delicate fragrance of the blossoms is truly intoxicating.

It was truly awesome.

Who do you think created those blossoms?

Jehovah God did. He is truly awesome.

Are you beginning to get the picture?

I could go on and on but time is limited.

TASTE OF HEAVEN

If you desire to see Jehovah’s awesomeness go where He abundantly exhibits it, in His creation, nature.

Have You Received This Abundant Free Gift Yet?

Grace and peace be yours in abundance through the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord.

His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness. Through these he has given us his very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature, having escaped the corruption in the world caused by evil desires. 2 Peter 1:1-4  New International Version

This is the abundant precious gift Jehovah gives all who receive Christ as their savior and live by Gods Law.

Now what is grace?

disposition to or an act or instance of kindness, courtesy, or clemency Webster’s Dictionary

Isn’t that incredible?  Jehovah is always there to help us and there is nothing too big or complicated for Him to handle. He loves to shower us with His Divine kindness.

What is Devine?

When we are blessed with a loving obedient relationship coming from Jehovah is it so much more than just good and there are no words to describe it.

We Shall Reap.

And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart. Galatians 6:9 New King James Version

We all go through it don’t we?

We all go though those times when it seems as if there is no progress in our service unto Jehovah. We wonder if we are doing any good. Trust me from my experience we will be shocked when we get to Heaven how many are there because of the words or actions we took in this life. When I was a teacher in Asia I would live the Christian life and freely talk about walking the Christian walk when they curiously asked me why I was different from the other teachers. Most laughed at me and I wondered if I was getting through to any at all. It was very difficult. At the end of the semester there would always be a handful of students that quietly came to me and informed me that they accepted Jesus into their lives because of my example. Oh did my heart ever jump for joy. I often wonder how many accepted Jesus later on in life because of the seeds I sowed. We may not see the harvest of our planting in this life but please do not ever give up planting those seeds.

We also wonder what will happen to us as we age and have no money set aside for retirement because we have spent a lifetime in service to Christ.

I have been young, and now am old; yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken. Psalm 37:25 New King James Version

GOD PROVIDES

Now in my elder years this is my rock of hope that is my mantra. Folks ask me what is going to happen in a few years because I have no money set aside (The funny thing is that every time I saved a nice little nest egg something would come around and wipe it out. I believe Jehovah did this to keep me dependent upon Him instead of being dependent upon a retirement fund.) to depend upon in retirement.

I firmly believe in the saying: “What goes around will come around.”   Even stronger is my believe that Jehovah God is real and that I am His child. What father would not take care of their child?

The same goes for Jesus. I have spent over thirty years faithfully serving Him. I strongly believe He will always take care of me.

I pray this article has been of comfort and strength to all in the service of our Heavenly King.

 

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Chatsahi (The Lord is my Strength) for blessing me with Your divine strength, comfort, encouragement, peace, love and joy as I humbly serve You. Thank you for promising to care for me in my elder years and look forward to seeing the beautiful flowers that I have sown in my service to You. I exalt You in the name of He who served You so admirably here on earth in His ministry Jesus Christ. Amen.

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