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

He was Leading Me.

This is what the Lord, your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel says, “I am the Lord your God, who teaches you to profit (benefit), Who leads you in the way that you should go.”Isaiah 48:17 Holy  Bible Amplified Version

Through out my walk with Christ I never knew where He was leading me. Most times I thought He was leading me here, all the while He was leading me someplace completely different to do things I never dreamed of (and a lot of times never even heard of).

For example: I thought He was leading me to the big city to go to a certain school so that when I graduated I would have a high paying job.After graduation I never did get a job in that vocation.

Through baby steps He guided me to schools to learn natural medicine (which I have been using quite successfully for over thirty five years now). As well through volunteer work in a hospital He taught me a lot about caring for those who were sick or injured.

These two fields held me in good steed in the next step of His choice in my life.

It has taken decades but now even though most times I do not know where He is guiding or what service He intends for me to accomplish, I have complete confidence in His Divine leadership.

“I know not the way God leads me, but well do I know my Guide.” Martin Luther

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rohi ( Jesus is our Divine Shepherd ) for being so patient, kind, strong and wise in leading this difficult sheep with in Your Divine flock. I exalt You in the name of the nest Sheppard of all Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

He Came to Us.

“I revealed myself to those who did not ask for me; I was found by those who did not seek me. Isaiah 65:1 New International Version

God came to us, not us come to God. God came to us and moved our hearts to desire a relationship with Him, it may have been through talking with somebody, a song or something we read.

Because we are not perfect and God is, we needed a mediator between God and us. Jesus made the supreme sacrifice, bled and died for us.

God presented Christ as a sacrifice of atonement, through the shedding of his blood—to be received by faith. Romans 3:25  New International Version

Because of that, through His divine sacrifice we are blessed with the opportunity to share a wonderful loving relationship with Him.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El Elyon (God most high) for being so kind as to offer Your supreme magnificent sacrifice so that someone as unworthy as myself may share a glorious relationship with someone as loving as You through Your elegant sons blood. I extol You through Your sons name Jesus Christ. Amen.

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