Flows From It.

 Above all else, guard your heart,  for everything you do flows from it. Proverbs 4:23 Holy Bible, New International Version                                                                

 Your input determines your output.                                                   

In other words what you put into your mind determines how you behave. This affects your relationships, your mental and physical health.

The best input comes from the Bible and holy communion with Jehovah. They guard your heart and mind on righteousness while not imputing greed, hatred nor revenge which pollutes the heart and mind.

That is why it is important to have a thank you prayer every morning. It begins your day with a joyful disposition. The more grateful we are to Jehovah for all His blessings through out the day the less we are likely to become Negative Nellies.

It is also important to listen to Christian music instead of worldly music. Christian music points to a loving , grateful relationship with Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit while the worlds music is all about greed, lust and revenge. The first one helps in living a joyful, peace filled life, the second one leads to unfulfillment, anger and depression.

The same holds true for movies and TV series. What goes in must come out. With Christ it is the sweetness of love, joy, peace and Divine purpose. With the world it is the stench of filthy soul destroying selfishness.

Choose wisely if you want a good day, good life and a great eternal retirement home. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah RAB (The Lord my Nourisher) for blessing me with a smorgasbord of Heavenly delights to feast upon every day. I need these to continue to grow more mature into the Heavenly child You know I am capable of being. I thank you in the name of He whose companionship is the sweetest of delights Jesus Christ. Amen

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

You do so at Your Own Risk.

                                    

He who turns his ear away from listening to the law [of God and man], Even his prayer is repulsive [to God]. Proverbs 28:9 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Have you ever felt Jehovah was speaking to you about something in your life and then you ignore Him?

You do so at your own risk.

When Jehovah speaks with us about something that requires attention it is for our own good.

If you ignore His advice you with eventually suffer the consequences for it. Then when you go cry babying unto Him, He will ignore your prayers. They smell like a bad fart to Him. He is disgusted with you because you refuse to listen to Him.

Now when you finally smarten up and obey Him, He forgives you.

It is always difficult to obey Him especially when it is something deep seated in our minds.

Many times it will take good Christian counselling to even get to admit we have the problem.

Once we accept the problem then it is up to us to try to resolve it. We can get all the counselling in the world but if we do nothing to try to resolve it, the counselling is useless.

Sometimes the problem is too big for us to handle.

That is when we go unto the Holy Spirit and sincerely, respectfully ask for His help. Then and only then will the issue be resolved.

I have gone through both sides of it and can tell you it is very difficult but rewarding.

One of them for example was independence, which most of us suffer from. It took many years before that was finally destroyed and expelled from my mind and heart. Sometimes it took my own effort, sometimes it took the assistance from the Holy Spirit. I rejoice over that every day.

“When God turns away from us because of selfishness, it is not rejection. Rather, it is an invitation to follow Him to a place we would rather not go.” — Brennan Manning

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emet (God of truth) for gracefully educating me about the ruinous dispositions with in my soul. Thank you for the assistance You overwhelmingly provide me with to conquer these weaknesses. I exalt Thee in the name of He who has overcome the world 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

We Should be Unafraid to Doubt.

                                           

But they were startled and terrified and thought that they were seeing a spirit.And He said,“Why are you troubled, and why are doubts rising in your hearts? Look at [the marks in] My hands and My feet [and see] that it is I Myself. Touch Me and see; a spirit does not have flesh and bones, as you see that I have.” Luke 24:37-39 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Think of it?

Here was the living breathing Christ standing before His disciples. They saw Him and heard Him yet still doubted it was Him.

Do you think that is absurd?

I do not. How would you feel if you were there?

There has been so many times in my Christian walk that have been filled with doubt. Sometimes it was the direction in which the Holy Spirit was leading me in service unto my Heavenly King, even though, it had been made bluntly clear to me.

There have been many times when enduring intense trials and tribulations I doubts Jehovahs strength to get me through it even though He made it point blankly blunt He was walking through it with me.

There having been numerous times when in spiritual or physical famine that I doubted Jehovahs providence for me even though there were countless experiences in the past to reflect upon to believe Him and to trust Him.

Now on the other side of it our faith in Him become more solidified in our hearts and minds.

Any Christian that says they have never doubted Jehovah is a flat out liar. Any Christian that tells you it is a sin to doubt Jehovah has never truly been put through the fire, they know not of what they are speaking.

“If ours is an examined faith, we should be unafraid to doubt….There is no believing without some doubting, and believing is all the stronger for understanding and resolving doubt.” Os Guinness

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Bara (The Lord Creator) for blessing me with Your loving patience during the times of doubt and for using these experiences to cement my faith ever stronger in You. You are such an awesome Father in Heaven to this child You love so much here on earth. I praise You in the name of He who never doubted You Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Christ Says

                                       

Let each one give [thoughtfully and with purpose] just as he has decided in his heart, not grudgingly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver [and delights in the one whose heart is in his gift].2 Corinthians 9:7 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

I see so many that have houses yet rent lockers to shove their stuff in. Yet they are not satisfied in life.

I have seen many who walk all over everyone to get one inch ahead of the other fellow, yet there is no satisfaction in their live.

I see those who freely and generously give of their time, money and heart to the community. They are the most wealthy folks I have ever met.

If given the choice between the material or the spiritual riches, choose the spiritual. It has more satisfaction and lasts and eternity.

“The world says, The more you take, the more you have. Christ says, the more you give, the more you are.” Frederick Buechner

Prayer: Thank you Jeovah El Roi ( “God Who Sees”) for blessing me with bountiful opportunities to become wealthy beyond my wildest dreams. It is the most significant treasure of all and that is love for it is the truest treasure of all. Thank you that You see this adoring child of Yours spread this treasure lavishly upon others and in so doing give glory unto You who deserve it the most. In so doing it enriches both my body and spirit. Oh I give all glory unto You my Love. I exalt Thee in the name of the most loving treasure 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

He is the One Who Loves You Most.

                                        

For I am convinced [and continue to be convinced—beyond any doubt] that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present and threatening, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the [unlimited] love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:37-39 Holy Bible Amplified Version

 If we were all perfect Jesus would not have been required to suffer and die that horrible death on the cross.

Jehovah loves us all.

What pierces His heart is those that reject Him.

However, when we turn from our wicked ways and repent unto Him He is quick to forgive us and lovingly accept us completely into His Holy family.

That of course does not mean that we are perfect after we come to Christ. I believe He allows some sinful attributes to remain in us to keep us humble, both before Him as well as to our fellow man.

Do not believe the lies satan tells you that you are not good enough or that you are filthy before a Holy Gods eyes.

I know, I fell for that scam but the Holy Spirit rescued me and share the truth that when I repent I am forgiven and am gladly welcomed back into my Heavenly family.

Read your Bible, especially the Old Testament and you will discover that many of the most wicked sinners became the greatest saints.

It will happen to you as well when you surrender your heart, mind and body unto our healing loving Father in Heaven.

“Jesus Christ knows the worst about you. Nonetheless, He is the One who loves you most.” A. W. Tozer

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Go’el (The Lord is my Redeemer) for blessing me with a beautiful Savior that made it possible to be a child of Your Divine family. Thank you for being so patient and persistent in moulding me into the child You desire to be in Your Holy family. I exalt You in the name of He who perfect blood made it all possible Jesus Christ. Amen Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

I Ask For.

                                                       

 They followed vanity [that is, false gods, idols] and became vain (empty-headed). 2 Kings 17:15 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

The thing I have noticed and numerous studies have confirmed is that the more material wealth you have the more paranoid you become about losing, the less detached you are from reality. The more luxury you have the more you become a slave to the scam of big business.

Take for example the latest mobile phone that comes out from a certain company every year or so. Folks are demented enough to wait in long line to pay idiotic prices for a gadget that they are only going to through away next year anyway. Their lunatic reasoning is that if they do not have the latest they are a no body. That is vanity. The gadget or latest designer clothes are like a god to them and the idolize things rather than nurture love towards others.

For where your treasure is, there your heart [your wishes, your desires; that on which your life centers] will be also. Matthew 6:21 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

I on the other hand seek the truest most valuable treasure of all.

That is: a loving relationship with Jehovah. When we commune together my heart is filled with Divine love, which nothing can compare with.

There is an old saying: what goes around, comes around.

Because I am honest I look forward to what is coming my way.

I nurture a pure heart for what matters to Jehovah and am not swayed by the foolish gibberish spewed by those who are worshiped as Gods like TV certain celebrities. As such there is a lot of peace withing my heart that is only attained by being in the right relationship with Jehovah.

“I do not ask for a life of luxury, nor for material wealth. I ask for a joyful heart, an honest heart, a pure heart. A heart after Jehovah riches” Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Pryyand- God is my friend for blessing me with the most amazing loving friend ever possible. Thank you for blessing me with spiritual blessings that are the most prized of all gifts You have showered upon me. I exalt Thee in the name of the most beautiful jewel of them all Jesus Christ. Amen

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love fill your heart today and every day.

The Best Relationship Advice

GODS FAITHFULNESS

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding Proverbs 3:5 New King James Version

God knows not only you but the other person as well. There are many things in the other person that you do not see but He does. So therefore it is best to always trust Him in any and all relationships.   It will prevent a lot of heartache, frustration and suffering later on in your life.

 

That guy may be a smooth talker but in reality is an abusive jerk. Man have I ever met a lot of them.   Personally I have found those who like to dress in luxuriant styles are snakes in the grass.

 

That woman may appear to be sweet and innocent but in reality she is manipulative, domineering and a self centered emotional thief. They will suck the life out of you quicker that a vacuum cleaner.

 

That person may seem goofy because they are shy but when you talk with them you discover they are very wise. Many of the wisest men and women I have had the privilege to become friends with I at first thought they were are brite as a burnt out light bulb but were very intelligent,caring, respectful, loving and wise.

That person may seem like a snob but in reality is just a loner (just because we are loners does not mean we have mental problems either). I am a loner yet most people consider me very deep, caring and supportive once they get to know me.

Prayer: Please Jesus Rohi (God our Sheppard) guide me towards those who are loving, caring and respectful and away from the life suckers (those who suck the life out of you). I sincerely ask this in the name of He who was open to the loving ones and closed to the lurking wolves Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

The Foreskin of Your Heart

DARKNESS

Therefore circumcise the foreskin of your heart, and be stiff-necked no longer. Deuteronomy 10:16 New King James Version

Circumcise: to cut off the foreskin of a male

Stiff-necked:  unreasonably or perversely unyielding Merriam Webster Dictionary

When the foreskin is removed it is thrown away.

In the same manner we are to throw away our stiff neckness before Jehovah. This means we are not to insist on going our own way and doing our own thing.

It means being submissive and obedient to Jehovahs commands in our life.

The consequences are of supreme importance to us.

If we insist on being stupid and stubborn  (the two go hand in hand) our lives will be met with a lot of difficulty, sadness and pain. I have seen too many fools dumbly insist on repeating the same foolish mistakes again and again and it only brings them to grief. They know they are wrong but too stupid and stubborn to admit it. Our ultimate destination is a very horrible place.

If we are obedient children to our Heavenly Fathers will we will be blessed with a supreme love affair and ultimately a Heavenly home.

Hell is full of men and women who say I did it my way. Heaven is full of men and women that say I did it Christs way.  Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Please Jehovah KalEl (voice of God) bless me to always be a receptive and obedient child of Your. I humbly request this in the name of He who was obedient all the way to the cross Jesus Christ. Amen.

 

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

Revive the Heart.

GOD LOVES YOU

For thus says the High and Lofty One Who inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy:  “I dwell in the high and holy place, With him who has a contrite and humble spirit, To revive the spirit of the humble, And to revive the heart of the contrite ones. Isaiah 57:15 New King James Version

The proud are dammed to Hell, the humble will enjoy Heaven. Joseph- Anthony: Green                                                                                    

contrite: feeling or showing sorrow and remorse for a sin.

When we are sorry for a sin we have committed and make amends for our wrong we are forgiven.

Now sometimes because of the circumstances or our disposition we cannot make amends. That is when we need to sincerely pray to Jehovah to bless us with the Holy Spirits guidance and strength and disposition Then when the Holy Spirit answers us we are to be obedient.                                                     

humble :not proud : not thinking of yourself as better than other people

Sometimes we are too filled with pride because we believe we are better than the offended one and we will not lower ourselves to apologize and make things right. This attitude must be smashed and destroyed before any reconciliation can occur.

We will never be right with God until we are right with others. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Once we have been reconciled with the one we offended then we can be reconciled with Jesus. If you feel Jehovah is far from you, maybe it is because you are far from Him. He does not tolerate disobedient children but always forgives those who repent. When there is reconciliation on our behalf  then He will heal our spiritual life and revive our healthy relationship with ourselves, with others (sometimes the others will refuse to accept our overtures but that is okay, God knows and that is what is important) and with Jehovah.                        

revive: to become strong, healthy, or active again All definitions from  Merriam- Webster dictionary

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Ropheka (God our healer) for healing me from the sting of my confessed sins and for reconciling me unto You again. I am ever so deeply grateful in the name of He whose blood heals my sins Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

I Am With You Always.

GODS LOVE

I am with you always, even to the end of the age. Matthew 28:20 New King James Bible

Being a Christian means you will never be politically correct.

You cannot be politically correct and Christ correct. Joseph- Anthony: Green

That means standing against what is wrong and standing for what is right.

This will leave you ostracized at work, at school and many times especially in your family. Many times it will feel as if it is you against the world.

Take heart, comfort and strength in the knowledge that Christ is there with you.

You can pour your heart out to Him because He has already been there.

While He waked amongst us He was hated and despised by many. His family rejected Him and made fun of Him. So He understands exactly how you feel.

The Holy Spirit will comfort you and strengthen you.

There have been many times I have experienced it and the Holy Spirit helped me through it all.

 

“You will never stand alone while standing on the Word of God.” Kathryn Souza-Wine

Prayer:  Thank you Jesus Pryyand (Jesus my friend) for walking with me through all my trial and tribulations as I stand for what You deem to be correct not what society falsely believes is politically correct. I praise you in Your wonderful loving name. Amen.

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