We Are On a Journey.

LEADS TO HEAVEN

 Be dressed and ready for active service.” Luke 12:35 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

In the Christian life we are on a journey. Yes it is nice to think about what Heaven will be like but we need to stayed focused on where we are in the present and where Jehovah is leading us on our journey towards Heavens Gate.

We are useless to Christ if we spend our Christian life day dreaming about Heaven instead of concentrating on being Christs servant on the journey there. Joseph a servant of Christ.

On this journey many times we do not have a road map of where Christ is sending us our what our service entails. It may be a journey of being a godly husband or wife, a godly parent. It may be on a journey of your vocation as say a nurse or a waitress at a quaint restaurant.

During the course of this journey there will be many dangers, pitfalls, loneliness, and exhaustion. It is at these times we shall draw ever closer unto our Heavenly Beloved and He shall draw the closest to us. In His loving grace we shall experience His amazing love, wisdom, comfort, encouragement and power. This shall instill in us a wonder and awe of His majesty. The result of this is an ever deeper desire to trust Him on our journey to Heavens gate and desire to be a loyal bond servant ( a bond servant is one who serves out of free will) unto Him.

“It is good to have an end to journey toward; but it is the journey that matters, in the end.” — Ursula LeGuin

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Immanuel (God is with us) for blessing me with walking with me throughout this adventure called life. It is in following You that we have traveled amazing paths and accomplished incredible feats together. I praise You in the name of He who is the light that I follow of the trail of life 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

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.

It Was For My Benefit.

FOLLOW YOUR WAYS

Surely it was for my benefit that I suffered such anguish. In your love you kept me from the pit of destruction; you have put all my sins behind your back. Isaiah 38:17 New International Version                 

Many times in my life I wanted to go my own way. In this foolishness I was heading for disaster. Jehovah allowed me to travel the path only so long and then brought circumstances to me which brought about much anguish. At the time I called out to Him and cried asking Him why He was doing this to me. I mistakenly believed He was punishing me. In reality He was guiding me away from destruction.                                   

When I repented (which means not only being remorseful but to stop doing those destructive things) I felt clean as He washed my sins from me.                                             

Then came the time to take huge steps of faith in obedience to where he was leading me and to what He intended for me to do.                                                                                   

The process involved smashing the old me like a vase and remoulding me on His divine potters wheel to be the servant He had intended for me to be.                                                      

Each step of the way I am sure it brought praise to His name in what I accomplished for Him which is why He did it.   Yes it was to bring others into His kingdom through me obedient service to Him but it was also for my benefit. When I see those now who stayed on the same path as I was on thirty years ago I praise my Beloved for rescuing me from such horrible destruction.                                                                                               

Gods preparation for greatness in His kingdom is often filled with difficult preparation Os Hillman                                                                       

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rohi (God is our Sheppard) for guiding this sometimes wayward sheep of Yours back into Your divine flock that is heading to a Heavenly pasture. I apologize for occasionally being an obstinate child which needs Your firm discipline to redirect him on Your chosen path. I exalt You in the name of the greatest Sheppard Jesus Christ. Amen.                                                                                                                 

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