For All Live in Family Care Givers

CHRISTS STRENGTH

 Speaking not only from my own experience but from listening to those  who are caring for their elder parents they receive nothing but continuous slaps in the face for their loving care. Then when many of the adult children are mentally and physically exhausted and put the parents into a seniors home the parents cry baby and try to blame the children all the while refusing to take responsibility for their own actions. Add to that that the care givers seldom receive any help from their siblings who are usually leeches. The only time they call the parent is when they want money from them.

It seems to me that the most ungrateful folks are the ones that need the help the most yet abuse those who are helping them. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Although this may seem like a curse it is in reality a blessing.

Because, it is in our hard times that we grow the closest to Jehovah and develop the deepest of love, respect and appreciation for Him. Here are some words of encouragement and strength from our loving, caring Father when we feel beaten down by the ungrateful abusive behaviour of those we are helping.

Whatever you do [whatever your task may be], work from the soul [that is, put in your very best effort], as [something done] for the Lord and not for men. Colossians 3:23 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Let us not grow weary or become discouraged in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap, if we do not give in. Galatians 6:9 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

“God never made a promise that was too good to be true.” — Dwight L. Moody

Therefore, those who are ill-treated and suffer in accordance with the will of God must [continue to] do right and commit their souls [for safe-keeping] to the faithful Creator. 1 Peter 4:19 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

 “Where God’s finger points, there God’s hand will make a way.”

Prayer: Oh Jehovah ‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) I cannot praise You enough for Your wonderful love, strength, provision, comfort, healing, wisdom and encouragement to continue on being obedient unto Your command;If a widow has children or grandchildren, these should learn first of all to put their religion into practice by caring for their own family and so repaying their parents and grandparents, for this is pleasing to God. 1 Timothy 5:4 Holy Bible, New International Version. Please comfort those who, because of the selfishness, brutish behaviour and contempt of their aged parents or grand parents towards the care givers they cannot endure the contemptuous behaviour any more and have to put them in a seniors home. Do not allow the wicked parents or grand parents to put a guilt trip on the adult children. It is their own fault they are where they are. I exalt You and humbly beseech You in the name of He who is loving and the Supreme Judge Jesus Christ. Amen

May Christ bless you with love, joy and peace today and every day.

Should Magnify Our

WORK IN PROGRESS

For our momentary, light distress [this passing trouble] is producing for us an eternal weight of glory [a fullness] beyond all measure [surpassing all comparisons, a transcendent splendor and an endless blessedness]! 2 Corinthians 4:17 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Sometimes the only way to learn is through the hard times.

In the easy times we tend to take things more lightly, especially concerning our obedience to Jehovah.

My life is a testimony to that.

It is in the hard times I learned the most and grew the most. They definitely were not enjoyable but I praise Jehovah for putting through them.

One good aspect of this type of learning is our appreciation for our Heavenly Teacher for the manner in which He teaches us the lesson. He does so in a manner in which the lesson will never be forgotten.

The other is that we more mature Christians use these lessons to pass on to those not as mature as us, hopefully to prevent them from making the same errors as us. For those going through the lessons, it encourages them to submit to the teachers instructions.

“Affliction comes to the believer not to make him sad, but sober; not to make him sorry, but wise. Even as the plow enriches the field so that the seed is multiplied a thousandfold, so affliction should magnify our joy and increase our spiritual harvest.” — Henry Ward Beecher

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Uzam (The Lord is our Strength in Trouble) for blessing me with so many afflictions. Although they were not enjoyable at the times, they were necessary to mature me in my walk towards You in Heaven. Thank you for blessing me with the strength to not only endure them but to prosper because of them. I praise You in the name of He who endure the worse affliction of all for me Jesus Christ. Amen

May your house be filled with joy in the morning and sweet dreams at night. May it be a home where love has come to live. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Close To the Brokenhearted.

SPIRITUAL STRENGTH

The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit (contrite in heart, truly sorry for their sin). Psalms 34:18 Holy Bible Amplified Version

When you have lost a loved one through death or divorce or because they have left the nest, your heart is crushed and your heart is broken, why not take it to Jesus?

When walking amongst us did not His family divorce itself from Him and did He not experience broken heartedness when one of His loved ones died? Did He not suffer separation from our beloved Father on the cross?

I have lost many loved ones and He was there to comfort me as no one else could or would.

When you lose your job or home why not take it to Jesus?

Did He not experience homelessness? Didn’t he and His disciple sleep in the wilderness where there was bandits, scorpions and many man eating predators?

I have been homeless and living in a tent surrounded by bears. It was taking security that

I went to sleep with no concern of being attacked while sleeping

Did He not lose His job as a carpenters son (He did not go right from being a carpenters son to His ministry.)?

There have been many times when, through no fault of my own, I was released from a company (usually because they went bankrupt) that I believed I would be at for all of my working years. It was He picked me up when I felt like giving up and going out and pounding the pavement and or upgrading my skills and getting another place to work. For those of us over fifty that are considered unhirable why not ask Jesus how you can be blessed with self employment?

When you are crushed and brokenhearted because of illness, didn’t Jesus experience the pain of whipping and beating in His body and the agony of hanging on the cross? I was a sickly boy with very bad asthma and water on the knee. It was only in reading the Bible and talking with my beloved Jesus that a lot of that pain was endured and I felt His presence the closest to me.

So will He not be close to you and heal you spiritually when you experience these things (He may not heal your relationships or get your job or home back or heal your illness but will He not as a loving Savior be close to you and heal your spirit)?

Indeed may these not be viewed as a burden but rather as a blessing?

It is in our hard times that we are the closest to Jesus. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Shammah (God is present ) for Your life giving presence with me through my oh so many trials and tribulations. If You were not there I do not believe I would have lived through oh so many of them. I give thanks for this wonderful loving care through Your son who experienced everything I have and so much more Jesus Christ. Amen.

May Jehovahs sweet love envelope you today a and every day.

I Use Both

complete deditacation

  “I am with you always [remaining with you perpetually—regardless of circumstance, and on every occasion], even to the end of the age.” Matthew 28:20 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

I use both as a light unto my closest friend. His name is Jesus.

I use both the good times and the bad ones as a light unto Christ.

The hard times shine the light of how He held my hand through the darkest clouds of sorrow and the difficultest of times. How He gently heals me of both big and small wounds. How He is strong yet gentle. How His love and strength was what got me through them. We are not to whine about them but rather to rejoice in them for it shows His providential care.

I use the good times to show His marvelous generosity to those He loves. How even the littlest of blessing shows His magnitude of love for me. Folks need to hear both. It makes Him real to them and some eager to join His Holy family.

“We are too prone to engrave our trials in marble and write our blessings in sand.” C.H. Spurgeon

Prayer: Please Jehovah Kal El (voice of God) bless me with ample opportunities to give testimony of Your amazing blessings and how the best ones were how You walked through my many trials and tribulations with me . Allow me to speak of the wonderful loving blessings You have generously given me in my life time. I ask this in the name of the most beautiful blessing You have shared with me Jesus Christ. Amen.

The gift of love, the gift of joy, the gift of peace, these are the greatest gifts that can be given. They are given in abundance to all those in Christs family by our Heavenly loving  Father. May you be blessed with plentiful opportunities to share these with those around you today.

There is No Other

JEHOVAHS CARE

 Most certainly God is with you, and there is no other, No other God [besides Him]. Isaiah 45:14 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

There has been many hard times in my life where in reflection it is revealed that is was by the hand of Jehovah that He navigated me through them. No one or nothing else could have helped me through them. There is no other god to compare with my loving Heavenly Father. I am eternally grateful to Him for this blessing.

There have been many times when there was bountiful blessings showered upon me that made life easy and good. It was obvious with whom these blessing came forth from. Jehovah is truly a God of bountiful blessings. I am eternally grateful to Him for this blessing. There is no god like Him.

There has been uncountable times when the pain endured was unbearable and crushing. It was my loving Fathers comforting and soothing soft voice that brought encouragement and strength to not only endure them but to prosper through them (yes, sometimes Jehovah allow us to go through the dross to remove the impurities in us to mould us into even more beautiful children of His). I am eternally grateful to Him for this blessing. There truly is no other god like Him

There has been numberless times when I was blessed with His immeasurable love that filled every molecule in the body with total and complete joy to the extent that it felt like I was going to explode in ecstasy. There is nothing to compare with that experience. I am eternally grateful to Him for this blessing. There truly is no other god like Him.

God is a God of the present. God is always in the moment, be that moment hard or easy, joyful or painful. Henri Nouwen

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) for being with me through all of my trials and tribulations, sorrows and snares. I never would have made it without You. Thank you my Beloved Father for blessing me with communion with You. It makes my heart dance with joy every time I am in Your loving presence. I exalt You in the name of He with whom I long to spend eternity with Jesus Christ. Amen

May your house be filled with joy in the morning and sweet dreams at night. May it be a home where love has come to live. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Blessed is Any Weight

                                                  

Cast your burden on the Lord [release it] and He will sustain and uphold you;
He will never allow the righteous to be shaken (slip, fall, fail). Psalm 55:22
Holy Bible, Amplified Version

“Blessed is any weight, however overwhelming, which God has been so good as to fasten with His own hand upon our shoulders.” — F. W.Faber

Now why in the world wold any weight be considered a blessing?

How many folks forget all about Jehovah during the good times but go a running to Him during the bad ones?

I believe the weight that endures over a sustained amount of time is the best.

The reason?

Those who are shallow in their relationship with Christ will quickly fall away when they do not receive instant relief. They will go to worldly councilors which is little if any use to them. They will cry out to their government to save them and the government shall be unable to assist them.

Some trust in chariots and some in horses, But we will remember and trust in the name of the Lord our God. They have bowed down and fallen, But we have risen and stood upright. Psalm 20: 7-8 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

Those whose hearts are open to Jehovah will experience the blessing of His hand in their experience and their faith (which means trust) will grow. So too, will their respect, love and admiration towards our loving Father in Heaven.

It is in our hard times that we grow the most and come the closest unto Jehovah. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Uzam (The Lord is our Strength in Trouble) for blessing me with the strength to continue on through the trial and tribulations, sorrows and snares that come my way. Thank you that You walk through them with me. I praise You in the name of the greatest source of strength of all Jesus Christ. Amen

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