Who’s Your Boss?

DEVINE PLANS

 For there are eunuchs who have been so from birth, and there are eunuchs who have been made eunuchs by men, and there are eunuchs who have made themselves eunuchs for the sake of the kingdom of heaven. Let the one who is able to receive this receive it.” Matthew 19:12 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

I want you to be free from anxieties. The unmarried man is anxious about the things of the Lord, how to please the Lord. 1 Corinthians 7:32 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

I am in my early sixties as I write this and have never been married. Oh sure there are many times when I see couples or families my heart aches to enjoy such a blessing in my life as well.

That however, is not the path the Lord has chosen for me.

There is no way I could have served the Lord in the manner I have if there was a wife or family in my life. I have faith in our Jesus that He will reward me with unlimited love in His family when it is to our heavenly home He takes me.

So if you are single, do not allow family or society to push you in a direction contrary to God. It will only lead to misery.

Where I live now, when people get a certain age their relatives (mostly their mothers and grandmothers) constantly harass and nag them: “When are you going to get married, when are you going to get married?” When they get married then the nagging continues: “When are you going to give me a grandson, when are you going to give me a grandson?” (Not a grandchild, but a grandson. This is to support them in their old age and to carry on the family name. What a pity so many young people get married just to shut the nagging mothers and grandmothers up. They are not happy, indeed, most are terribly miserable.

Most married folks drift farther apart in their marriage the longer they are married until they are two strangers living in the same house. Joseph a son of Jehovah

I have seen this come true in almost every married elder couple I have met. Indeed, many times I wonder why they even got married in the first place (most times it was because the lust of the body was stronger than the willingness to obey Jehovahs choice. It ended up with a lot of shot gun marriages. Yes, even with your grandparents).

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Yahew (God of His people) for the privilege of being a eunuch in order to better serve You. I know You shall reward me in Heaven. In the name of my adoring big brother Jesus Christ I give thanks for this blessing. Amen

Wishing you a house full of sunshine, hearts full of cheer and love that grows deeper each day of the year. Welsh blessing

Was It a Blessing?

In order that Satan might not outwit us, for we are not unaware of his schemes. 2 Corinthians 2:11 New International Version

HIS INSTRUCTION

 

One day I felt the Lord moving me to go sit beside the river on a cement walkway to do my meditation while living in Asia. Once there, men and women were constantly interrupting me trying to get me to give them or their children or grandchildren free English lessons. It was explained to them that I was spending time with Jehovah in meditation. They did not care and kept on
pestering me to teach them English. I naturally, became extremely agitated but remained meek (meek means keeping your temper under control.

Then I felt the Holy Spirit to merely explain to them I was meditating and would appreciate it if hey respected that and left me alone. When they persisted they were ignored. When they understood that they were being ignored they left me alone.

Why do you think Jehovah would send me to a place where there was constant harassment?
Do you think it was to teach me to be polite but firm with others?  Do you think it was to teach me to concentrate on meditation and not allow the devil to interfere with it (I am not saying the men and women were devils but rather that Satan was using them to interfere with it)?

Do you think that was a blessing in disguise?

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rabbi (God our teacher) for blessing me with an important lesson that is expanded so much in my life. I joyously exalt You in the name of He who never allowed the devil to interfere with His divine life when He walked the earth Jesus Christ. Amen.

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