It is Impossible for a Christian

A STOUT HEART

This is why we work hard and continue to struggle, for our hope is in the living God. 1 Timothy 4:10 Holy Bible, New Living Translation

It is impossible for a Christian to give up. We all work hard at being acceptable children to our Heavenly Father.

Yes there are going to be constant struggles.

Christianity is one war that continues until we reach Heavens gate. Just when one battle is finished and we rest a little another one begins. So many times we feel exhausted and defeated. We desire to give it all up and walk away. But, as Christians when we go before our Heavenly Father, He blesses us with strength, wisdom and the weapons to continue the fight. The longer we are in this battle the stronger our hope is in our Heavenly Father.

Now hope here is not the same as hoping to win the lottery. Rather it means confidence in Our Heavenly Fathers care, provision and deliverance and the eternal Heavenly home He has prepared for us.

“God never promises to remove us from our struggles. He does promise, however, to change the way we look at them.” — Max Lucado

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Ori (the Lord is my Light) for enlightening me with Divine insight into the reason for the constant battles that must be fought on a daily basis in every Christians life ( including mine). This gift encourages me on when all seems lost to victory which glorifies You. I joyously praise You in the name of He whose empty grave brought eternal victory to oh so many. Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with abundant joy in your heart filled with love and your life overflowing with laughter every day this year.

Enter Fully Into that Difficult Existence

FRUIT OF THE HOLY SPIRIT

The Spirit alone gives eternal life. John 6:63 New Living Translation Bible

There is no good going to a retreat and meditating on your belly button lint to get in touch with your inner self and then going back to everyday life. These week retreats are nothing more than a waste of money in my opinion. If you desire a spiritual life it must be a full time commitment to the Holy Spirit. You will not receive one from the Buddhists.

It will be a difficult existence because you are in a different world than those around you. You will be in tune with the voice of Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. To obey these three is complete nonsense to the world.

We have the Charity of God beat within us as it beats with in the heart of He who showed us what it looks like when He walked amongst us Jesus Christ. That is we are called to suffer long (this means , we are kind; we envieth not, we are not puffed up, we seek not our own, we are  not easily provoked, we think no evil, we rejoice not in iniquity, but in the truth; we bear all things, believe all things, hope in all things, endure in all things.

“The spiritual life is a stern choice. It is not a consoling retreat from the difficulties of existence, but an invitation to enter fully into that difficult existence, and there apply the Charity of God, and bear the cost.” — Evelyn Underhill

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Chatsahi (The Lord is my Strength) for blessing me with the strength to not only endure but to prosper during the times of suffering for You as Your precious son suffered for me. I exalt You in the name of He who gladly suffered for me Jesus Christ. Amen

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

You Faithfully Answer.

 You faithfully answer our prayers with awesome deeds, O God our savior. You are the hope of everyone on earth, even those who sail on distant seas. Psalm 65:5 New Living Translation Bible

Prayer is the sweetest conversation freely available to all who belong in Jehovahs family. He always answers.

Many times He answers in mysterious ways that we do not understand until the proper time of revelation (He has done that with me oh so many times).

Many times while conversing with Him, He will guide to verse after verse in the Bible to make sure there is no doubt about what He is saying and blessing us with a clear vision of what His advice is.

There has been so many times when in times of extreme stress in prayer He has blessed me with peace, comfort and assurance. Far better than anything the world has to offer.

When confused about the road to travel or the action to take, He always blesses with advice in His Holy Guidebook (the Bible) on the proper course of action to take or where to go to find a Godly mentor to assist us in the proper course of action to take.

There has been so many times when exhaustion has sapped every molecule of energy from the soul and it feels like sinking into the abyss that in prayer He strengthens the spirit to explode into action with Divine strength.

Why would anyone go to anyone or anything other than the ultimate caregiver, Jehovah? They cannot even begin to compare with Him.

“Prayer wonderfully clears the vision; steadies the nerves; defines duty; stiffens the purpose; sweetens and strengthens the spirit.” — S. D. Gordon

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Pyyrand (Jesus my best friend) for the honour of always being able to talk with You. It is the one of greatest gifts You have freely abundantly given me. It is the best part of my day. I rejoice in this treasure in Your beautiful name. Amen

May you be blessed with abundant joy in your heart filled with love and your life overflowing with laughter every day this year.

Then, My Spirit Soars

GOD IS IN THE FURNACE WITH US

 I pray to you, O Lord, my rock.  Do not turn a deaf ear to me. For if you are silent, I might as well give up and die. Psalm 28:1 New Living Translation

There has been so many times in my life I felt like giving up and dying. It seemed as if everything I touched was destroyed. It seemed as if I gave everything and there was nothing left. It seemed as if I was the only soul in this world. In those times I went to the Lord and begged for death.

He patiently and lovingly guided me to verse after verse in the Bible affirming His love and care for me. Other times He came personally to me and filled my spirit with His love and reassurance.

One thing I noticed in reflection though, was that it was when I was at the end of my rope that He began an amazing transformation in me. He had to wait until I was ready and willing to surrender my will to His.

The other is that it was life changing in a manner in which shall never be forgotten but joyfully remembered.

Many times when I have felt like giving up I spend time with my Beloved . Then, my spirit soars like an eagle in the sky and my hope is renewed. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jesesus Yasha (The Lord my Savior ) for saving me from disaster after disaster. Thank you for the mysterious and numerous ways in which You brought salvation to me. I exalt You in the name of He whose blood saved me from damnation Jesus Christ. Amen.

Christ blesses us with love, peace and joy. May you be blessed with many opportunities to share these with others today.

To the Favor Of

CHRIST'S LOVE

 So then as through one trespass [Adam’s sin] there resulted condemnation for all men, even so through one act of righteousness there resulted justification of life to all men. Romans 5:18 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Justification is act of God’s boundless mercy in forgiving all the transgressions of the penitent believer, for the sake of atoning sacrifice of His beloved Son; and restoring the once guilty transgressor to the favour of God, and the hope of eternal life.

We are to be not just forever grateful to our Savior for willingly paying this excruciating horrid agonizing price but must be so every morning and evening.

Oh if only we could truly even begin to conceive the price that was paid with pain, blood and sweat for the punishment that has been pardoned of us by this loving act we would cry in adoration day and night in awestruck admiration and gratitude.

Do not take it lightly but in the utmost reverence.

It is Christs sweat, agony and blood that brought me into a Heavenly family. I shall give Him the biggest hug with tears streaming down my cheeks in love and adoration towards Him for this most amazing gift. . Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Hoshe’ah ( The Lord Saves ) for saving me from eternal damnation through Your sacred blood. May my heart be ever appreciative of this most precious gift every moment of every day. I praise You in Your most holy name Amen.

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

The Godly Are Bettered By

WE ARE PURIFIED

Through Him we also have access by faith into this [remarkable state of] grace in which we [firmly and safely and securely] stand. Let us rejoice in our hope and the confident assurance of [experiencing and enjoying] the glory of [our great] God [the manifestation of His excellence and power]. And not only this, but [with joy] let us exult in our sufferings and rejoice in our hardships, knowing that hardship (distress, pressure, trouble) produces patient endurance; and endurance, proven character (spiritual maturity); and proven character, hope and confident assurance [of eternal salvation]. Romans 5:2-4 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

It is in the hard times we learn the most and mature the most as we are guided by the Holy Spirit. We do not become bitter and self pitying like those in the world. Rather, we rejoice in them afterwards because we can see Jehovahs strong, secure hand leading us through them.

It is in our sufferings that Jehovah reveals the most of His love and healing which draws us ever closer to Him which is the only way for that to occur. We do not pout and play the blame game like those in the world because we understand that it occurred for our betterment.

Each of these brings stronger confidence in our loving Heavenly Fathers providence in every part of our lives. Because we are His children we always have access to Him and He is never too busy for us but takes an active role in our lives.

For these blessings we should continually praise Him and rejoice over Him continually every day.

When we know that the angel of death shall come a calling (and I believe that Jehovah always alerts us that our time will soon be up, even though we do not know the hour or the day. This is because of what has been witnessed in the palliative care in hospitals and volunteering in seniors homes) Jehovah shall cause us to reflect back on our walk with Him and blesses us with assurance of the Heavenly home that is awaiting us.

As the wicked are hurt by the best things, so the godly are bettered by the worst.” — William Jenkyn

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Uzam (The Lord is our Strength in Trouble) for strengthening me, comforting me and encouraging me through lo the many trials, tribulations and sorrows that have come my way in my walk with You. I would never had made it without You gentle strong hand supporting me. I praise You in the name of He who strengthened the weak as He walked amongst us Jesus Christ. Amen

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

God is in Your Midst  

GOD IS WITH US

This past week mom (I am a unpaid live in care giver for my mom. If I am not here she will be put into a seniors home) has been constantly taunting me that this is HER house and she does not need me. She can throw me out at her slightest whim.   I know my Lord desires me to remain here but it really gets me down.         

 These verses and quotes stuck out to me this morning while reading morning devotionals.              

For I know the plans and thoughts that I have for you,’ says the Lord, ‘plans for peace and well-being and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. Jeremiah 29:11    The Holy Bible Amplified Version                                    

 “I will never [under any circumstances] desert you [nor give you up nor leave you without support, nor will I in any degree leave you helpless], nor will I forsake or let you down or relax My hold on you [assuredly not]!”  Hebrews 13:5 The Holy Bible Amplified Version                         

   I don’t know what  tomorrow brings;  But I know who knows, and I know He holds my hand who holds tomorrow in His other hand. Joseph a son of Jehovah                                                                                  

   Is anything too difficult or too wonderful for the Lord? Genesis 18:14  The Holy Bible Amplified Version             

   “What seems too difficult for us is a sure sign that it belongs to God.” — Marie DePree                                                                  

 “The Lord your God is in your midst, A Warrior who saves. He will rejoice over you with joy; He will be quiet in His love [making no mention of your past sins], He will rejoice over you with shouts of joy. Zephaniah 3:17 The Holy Bible Amplified Version                                             

About an hour afterwards as laying in bed my heart started tingling like a mild electric current was stimulating it.  Then there was a tingling in my mouth (no not like the current was running from my heart to my mouth but each was separate). I could not stop singing Glllllory, gloorrry , glorrry in excelsis.        

Next my right finger after the thumb tingled and was outstretched towards Heaven. This continued for an hour.                                                                     

 Wow, what an experience.                                                                      

   Do you think my Heavenly Love was trying to tell me something?  

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) for blessing me with your reassurance that no matter what comes my way whether good or bad You are always right here with me. You are indeed all I need in life and You are my life. I exalt You in the name of my best friend who continuously walks beside me Jesus Christ. Amen May

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