Is the Most Priceless Treasure.

Dear Father,

Your love is the most priceless treasure.

You have mysteriously and wonderfully created me. You have ordained all the days of my life and written them in Your book before I was even born. All your thoughts towards me are precious.

I praise You because I am Your handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, You have prepared in advance for me to do.

I come before You today to humble myself before You, submitting to Your will for my life. Because of You, Father, surely goodness and mercy follow me all the days of my life.

I am devoted to living out Your will on earth, to be more concerned with storing up treasures in Heaven than on earth.

Lead me, Lord, in the way I should go. Direct my steps and fulfill Your plans for my life. Thank you for guiding upon Your path for me to follow to Your Heavenly home You have graciously prepared for me.

In Jesus name I pray. Amen

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

One Whose Heart Breaks When

 I live in the high and holy place with those whose spirits are contrite and humble. I restore the crushed spirit of the humble and revive the courage of those with repentant hearts. Isaiah 57:15 Holy Bible, New Living Translation

A contrite heart means one whose heart breaks when they sin.

Now do you notice that Jehovah lives in a high and holy place?

That can only mean Heaven.

Do you notice that those with a contrite heart live there with Him?

When we are naughty and then repent (which means we admit what we did, admit it was wrong, apologize for it, ask for forgiveness and make restitution where possible) then Jehovah takes our spirits up to Heaven to be with Him, if only for the moment of when we repent.

I believe this is a sign from our loving Heavenly Father that our sins are truly forgiven.

The Holy Spirit instills in us all that which is right and that which is wrong. We receive the proper rewards for the decisions we make. Joseph a son of Jehovah.

See how He says He will revive those of a repentant heart.

I know from my experience I felt crushed with remorse, weak and feeble. After repentance my heart felt as if a heavy burden had been lifted from it and danced with joy and gratitude for the forgiveness that was blessed upon me by my Heavenly Father (even when those that we offended were not so generous nor forgiving).

“Trust the past to God’s mercy, the present to God’s love and the future to God’s providence.” St. Augustine of Hippo

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Goelekh (Isaiah 49:26&60:16The LORD Thy Redeemer) that when I repent, You gently redeem me back into Jehovahs holy family. I praise You in Your kind, loving name. Amen

May love be in your life, may hope be in your heart and may peace be in your every day walk with Christ. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Thank You That You Are

Dear Father,

Thank you that You are a compassionate, merciful God You . I humbly bow before You my Love at Your feet, asking You to bring mercy where judgment has been earned. I am deeply sorry for allowing my heart to be led astray by my own selfish desires and the things of the world, for the ways I have turned away from You, and sinned against You and You alone.

Although I have been a disobedient child of Yours and my sinfulness deserves punishment, You forgive and pardon those who humble themselves before You. Where judgment is warranted, You give mercy.

Forgive me my loving Father and be merciful to me. Soften my heart, God, to be tender towards You, to seek your face, and to long for your presence every moment in my life.

I meekly request this in the name of He who graciously shed His priceless blood for my forgiveness 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. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Me First Puts You Last.

SATANS TRAP

What causes fights and quarrels among you? Don’t they come from your desires that battle within you? You desire but do not have, so you kill. You covet but you cannot get what you want, so you quarrel and fight. You do not have because you do not ask God. When you ask, you do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, that you may spend what you get on your pleasures.                                                                                      You adulterous people, don’t you know that friendship with the world means enmity against God? Therefore, anyone who chooses to be a friend of the world becomes an enemy of God. Or do you think Scripture says without reason that he jealously longs for the spirit he has caused to dwell in us? But he gives us more grace. That is why Scripture says: “God opposes the proud but shows favor to the humble.” Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Come near to God and he will come near to you. Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded. Grieve, mourn and wail. Change your laughter to mourning and your joy to gloom. Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up James 4:1-10 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation.

Is it not true, this is what causes so many fights today, the feeling that you are the center of the universe? Because of this, you feel no qualms about stepping all over everybody else because you think you are better than anyone else. You refuse to see anyone else’s point of view. You are rude because again, you think you are the center of the universe. Maybe you are to momma and or granma, but not to the rest of us. Grow up and be a man or woman. Learn to respect others.

How about your relationship with God?

In your communion with Him do you have the gimme, gimme attitude?

Are your prayers centered around yourself? Then you cry baby because God does not give you everything you demand.

So many times I have encountered people who say they don’t believe in God (I say they say they don’t believe in God because I believe we all deep down we all know He exists. Many just refuse to accept Him because He will not give them their every desire like spoiled children and because they are haughty and refuse to submit to anyone). When I ask them why, they reply that it is because He has not answered their prayers. When asked what their prayers are they are always self centered.

Of course God will not answer those prayers (Now there is nothing wrong with asking for Gods help or guidance. That is what He wants us to do.).

My prayer is: Not my will but Thy will be done my God. Show me where You want me to go, teach me what You want me to do. May my words and actions bring glory and praise to You and may they lead the lost little sheep to You.Joseph a son of Jehovah

Now what is friendship with the world?

I believe it is self seeking pleasures, whether it be booze, drugs, sex or commercialism. Again, it’s all about you.

That is the life of a loser. Their life is left with a void that they do not understand why. The reason is because they do not have the heart of a servant of the most regal of kings, Jesus Christ.

The happiest people I have ever met are also the humblest.Joseph a son of Jehovah

Humble: not proud or haughty : not arrogant or assertive Webster’s Dictionary

I love being humble and yes most days I am very joyful (Happiness depends upon physical stimulation, joyfulness depends upon Jehovahs love beating in your heart).

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El SIMCHAH GIYL (God my Exceeding Joy) for blessing me with exceeding joy as I nurture our loving relationship which is the most joyful experience there is. I applaud You in the name of He who brings the light of joy to my heart Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with the gift of love, the gift of peace, the gift of joy. May you be blessed with numerous opportunities to share these gifts with others today.   Joseph a son of Jehovah

Are You Ready For ?

LOVING TO EACH OTHER

Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love.” Ephesians 4:2 New International Version

 How do you behave towards others?

How do you treat your neighbors, friends, family, classmates, co-workers, and people on the bus or anywhere we travel throughout our day?

When we conduct ourselves in a humble, gentle manner our lives will be much less stressful and we find ourselves a lot more happier.

Let’s dissect each of these words and then perhaps and then you may see how to incorporate them into your daily living.

Humble: not proud or haughty : not arrogant or assertive

Do you walk around with a chip on your shoulder?

Do you look down on people who are poorer than you, come from a different country and culture?

Do you believe you are better than anyone else?

Are you ready for what comes around?

Gentle: free from harshness, sternness, or violence

Do you speak cruel spiteful words to others to get your jollies watching them in their hurt feelings?

Be careful, if this behavior leads to some else to commit suicide in Gods eyes you are just as guilty of murder as if you put a bullet in their head.

Are you too stern with your wives, husbands, children or subordinates?

Are you a bully?

Read about those who speak cruel words, the same applies to you.

Patient: bearing pains or trials calmly or without complaint, not hasty or impetuous ,steadfast despite opposition, difficulty, or adversity

Do you have patience waiting in the grocery line, or when dealing with anothers short comings or difficulty in understanding?

 

Do you stand beside a family member, friend, classmate or co-worker when dealing with difficult situations? Do you bear with another when they unintentionally do or say annoying things?

All of the above definitions come from Webster’s dictionary. The comments are my own.

Why not make a list of how you can improve yourselves with this helpful little guide. Then start working on improving yourselves one at a time.

As an added bonus you will find yourselves much less stressed and happier.

Oh and as another added bonus remember this: What goes around comes around. So how you behave towards others will be done back to you.

How do you want people to treat you?

“Welcome with open arms fellow believers who don’t see things the way you do. And don’t jump all over them every time they do or say something you don’t agree with—even when it seems that they are strong on opinions but weak in the faith department. Remember, they have their own history to deal with. Treat them gently” (Romans 14:1 The Message Bible).

In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.” Matthew 5:16 The Holy Bible, The Living Translation

Be ye all of one mind, having compassion one of another, love as brethren, be pitiful, be courteous: not rendering evil for evil, or railing for railing: but contrariwise blessing.” 1 Peter 3:8,9 The Holy Bible, The King James Version

“Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up” (James 4:10 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation).

We must learn to live together as brothers or perish together as fools. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Prayer: Jehovah Hosanna ( God our maker) make my every heart beat with a deep longing desire to always walk righteously in Your divine eyes and be open to expanding my ability to become more Christ like every day. In the name of our loving King Jesus Christ we pray. Amen.

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

We All Have Them

CONFESS

 You may be sure that your sin will find you out. Numbers 32:23 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

We all have them dark sins that we do not want anybody to find out because it will bring us great shame. It is habitual sin, habits that we know are wrong but we are addicted to. They are not life altering sins but annoying little pests. They need to be consistently repented of or else they will become cancerous and slowly destroy us.

I believe Jehovah allows these to keep us humble. Another reason is to keep us grateful for such a forgiving Heavenly Father.

And, finally, to help us to be just as grateful unto those that offend us when they repent as our gracious Father forgives us when we repent.

If we refuse to repent, He will publicly expose them to cause us shame, just as He did to David.

Get rid of your little sins because if you do not they only lead you to committing the bigger ones. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Mekaddishkem (Exodus 31:13) – The LORD that Sanctifies You that when I repent, Your holy pure blood washes my sins away like the waves wash the sand away on a beach. I praise You for this precious gracious gift in Your magnificent 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. Joseph a son of Jehovah

It is Rare to See

  PRAISE WITH TIMBEREL

It is rare to see a humble young man or a contented old one. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Maturity is the solidifying of character of respect, integrity, patience, and compassion. It is the constant growing ever closer with Christ not the advancement of age. I have met many immature older adults. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Watch out that no poisonous root of bitterness grows up to trouble you, corrupting many. Hebrews 12:15 Holy Bible New Living Translation

I have found more whose heart is full of the poison of bitterness in their old age than the sweet fragrance of gratefulness to Jehovah for all the blessings He has bestowed upon them. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer:Poppa, please bless me to be grateful and content with Your gracious abundant daily blessings You lovingly bless me with. Help me to be appreciative for the most precious eternal blessing You have given me, my loving best friend Jesus. Joseph a son of Jehovah

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

These Are the Two Parts of Prayer:

A PRAYING MAN

Since the first day you began to pray for understanding and to humble yourself before your God, your request has been heard in heaven. I have come in answer to your prayer. Daniel 10:12 Holy Bible, New Living Translation

These are the two parts of prayer: understanding and humbleness. In every aspect of prayer the core of it is to be for understanding. Understanding Jehovahs love for us. Understanding the proper manner which is appropriate for us to show our love for Him. Understanding His will in our life. Understanding what must be done to reconcile ourselves unto Jehovah and unto our fellow man. Understanding what must be our part in shining His light of love unto a dark world. Understanding how to protect ourselves from being sucked into that dark world.

The next part is for us to be humble. Humble means we are not to be either arrogant nor to be doormats. We are confident in who we are. Who we are is children of the most High God. As such when we approach Him it is to be done with love and respect.

There is only one time when prayer is appropriate and that is when we have a desire to be in loving communion with our Heavenly Father Jehovah, our best friend Jesus and our wise teacher, the Holy Spirit. You cannot fake it with them so why bother trying? Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: the worlds greatest wireless connection. Unknown 

 Prayer: Thank you  Jehovah Immanuel (God is with me) for the wonderful conversations we share that bring enjoyment to me through out the day, every day. I praise You in the name of He with whom I love to walk with and talk with Jesus Christ. Amen  

 May love be in your life, may hope be in your heart and may peace be in your every day walk with Christ.

A Pathway For the Work Of

 “What is more pleasing to the Lord: your burnt offerings and sacrifices or your obedience to his voice? Listen! Obedience is better than sacrifice, and submission is better than offering the fat of rams.1 Samuel 15:22 Holy Bible, New Living Translation

What an incredible path He has chosen for me to follow. My Beloved slowly transformed me from a country hick into a obedient son of His.

The path went from moving to the city from the farm (which was a huge act of faith and was terrifying to do) and learning natural medicine to planting tree’s in Gods garden (I say the earth is Gods garden and we are His caretakers). From there He had me slowing seeds for His two legged garden (that is, bringing souls into His family) in China. Next He moved me to come home and be a live in care giver to a challenging mother. None of this was conceivable when I was a child shy sick.

It was accomplished through obedience unto my Heavenly King and working in harmony with the Holy Spirit.

“Obedience, pure and simple, opens up a pathway for the work of God.” — David Stevens

Now Christ, our king may not have such challenging duties (duty is an act of love, obligation is an exchange of goods, i.e. I am obligated to work for an employer as he is obligated to pay me for that work). But, every act of worship no matter how big or small is an act of love unto our Heavenly Father Jehovah and His son our King Jesus

There is no act of love unto Christ no matter how big or small that is no great in Heaven Joseph a son of Jehovah  

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Hamelech ( Jesus my Lord King ) for the honour of being Your humble loyal obedient servant and for the numerous opportunities You present to me to serve You. I exalt You in Your majestic name. Amen

Whatever is beautiful, whatever is meaningful, whatever brings you joy, may you be blessed with an abundance of it this every day this year.
