Thank Him For It And

 Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take. Proverbs 3:5-6 Holy Bible, New Living Translation

Do you truly have confidence in our Heavenly Father?

Then when you go to Him with a problem when you are finished talking with Him about it, thank Him for it and drop it. I do not mean to never mention it again but rather do not whine about it consistently to Jehovah. That is annoying when someone does that to me, I can only imagine how annoying it is to Jehovah when untold numbers of His children do it to Him.

For me, I mention it every morning to Him more as a way for me to remember it than to remind Him of it. Many times I tend to forget the problem (unless it is persistent or is a crisis) and then one day something happens and it pops into my mind that that is Jehovah answering my prayers in unusual and unique ways. It always makes me laugh and thank Him for His wonderful humour as well as His loving Providence.

For the rest of my life I am going to trust that Jehovah is always at work in all things and give Him thanks long before my simplest prayers are answered. Nancy Parker Brummet

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Shalom (The Lord blesses with Peace) for blessing me with peace every time I place my confidence in You, no matter how dire the situation. You are truly the most awesome Father of them all. I extol You in the name of He who placed His life in Your Divine hands with complete confidence, as I deeply desire to, all the way to the cross, Jesus Christ. Amen

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

I am Not a Thief.

Well, it is that time of year again.

The early spring flowers are coming up. An of course that means our flower gardens are jam packed with tulip bulbs and daffodils. If we did not plant them (and we did not) then you like the neighbors may wonder how all those bulbs got there.

ASIAN AMONGST THE BLOOMS

The villains of course are those wicked little rodents called squirrels. I swear they go all around the neighborhood and dig up everyone’s bulbs and bury them in our flower garden and some in our yard.

Now, there is barely any room for any other flowers.

BIRD BATH IN FLOWERS

The strange thing is though that they dig up the flowers from the neighbors that feed them and plant them in our garden while I am constantly shooing them away.

ANGEL AND CHILD IN FLOWERS

So, I am not a thief, it truly is the neighborhood squirrels that are doing it. I do not care how strange the look I get in the neighborhood when I explain that to them.

 

Prayer: Please Jehovah Jireh (God supplies) supply these crazy rodents with some place else to stash their ill gotten loot instead of our garden. I humbly beseech You in the name of He who plants the flowers of love in our hearts Jesus Christ. Amen

P.S. The neighbors believe me due to the fact that one of them stood there talking with me and we watched one of these tiny thieves dig up one of his bulbs and dash over and bury it in our garden.

Rolling in the Heavens Laughing.

JEHOVAH ALWAYS SUPPLIES

 So from one man, though he was [physically] as good as dead, were born as many descendants as the stars of heaven in number, and innumerable as the sand on the seashore. Hebrews 11:12 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Think of it.

Imagine an article in the news stating that a couple of old geezers (and I can get away with calling them that because I am one) are going to have a child. It would confound everyone.

Now think of it in Abraham’s days when there was no artificial insemination. Not only would it seem impossible to Abraham and Sarah but imagine those in other countries and even their own family. The question on everyone’s mind would be:How can this be?”

I can imagine Jehovah rolling in the Heavens laughing. I love His sense of humour.

So many times I think He is sending me here to do this when in reality He is sending me there to do that.

So imagine you think Jehovah is sending you out for pizza in the west end of town and you end up in the north east end of town going canoeing. I end up laughing and laughing and telling Him I love His sense of humour. I can imagine Jehovah rolling in the Heavens laughing with me. Jehovah has the greatest sense of humour of all.

“Whence comes this idea that if what we are doing is fun, it can’t be God’s will? The God who made giraffes, a baby’s fingernails, a puppy’s tail, a crook necked squash, the bobwhite’s call, and a young girl’s giggle, has a sense of humour. Make no mistake about that.” — Catherine Marshall

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El SIMCHAH GIYL (God my Exceeding Joy) for blessing me with explosive joy every time You bless me with sharing Your amazing humour with me. I praise You in the name of He who showed His wonderful sense of humour to His disciples Jesus Christ. Amen

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

The Motto of Every Christian

 

Behold, for so shall the man be blessed and divinely favored Who fears the Lord [and worships Him with obedience]. Psalm 128:4 Holy Bible Amplified Version

The motto of every Christian is to be: Not me will but Thy will be done my Lord. Joseph a son of Jehovah Be careful.

Do not say this unless you are serious because Christ our King will call you out on it.

If Christ is our King then that means we are His free will servants. Joseph a son of Jehovah

He will take you where you do not want to go and request ( Jesus is respectful He never demands but always asks- sometimes nags) you to obey His voice. I say sometimes He nags because He would not leave me alone until I surrendered to His will. Every time I am glad I did.

“Obedience is the fruit of faith; patience, the bloom on the fruit.” — Rossetti

Through this we will learn to be patient because Jehovah works on His time schedule not ours. During this process He will also be cementing patience in our lives (which we all need). This takes numerous experiences and years to brand int our souls.

Composure will be another attribute He will instill into our being. When things are dive bombing south and every body else is running around like a chicken with their heads cut off we will be composed. This takes numerous experiences and years to brand into our souls.

Indeed, in reflection now, it is humorous to reminisce about how many times I was the chicken until becoming the cool head in hot situations.

But if we hope for what we do not see, we wait eagerly for it with patience and composure. Romans 8:25 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Christ Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever) for blessing this humble servant with the privilege of serving such a magnificent King as You all the days pf my life. I sincerly thank you in Your awesome name. Amen

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