You are The

 My Holy Cherished Beloved Father, You are the love of my live and I deeply respect, admire and worship You.

WITH ALL YOUR HEART

Thank you for blessing me with the Holy Spirit to guide me into an ever deeper prayer life and intimacy with You, Jesus and the Holy Spirit.         

 You will show me the way of life, granting me the joy of your presence and the pleasures of living with you forever. Psalm 16:11 The Holy Bible, Living Translation

One of the wonderful things about youse is that it is impossible to ever know Youse completely. There is always something more You teach me about Yourselves which amazes me and enlarges my love for Youse.

The one thing I ask of the Lord— the thing I seek most—is to live in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, delighting in the Lord’s perfections and meditating in his Temple. Hear me as I pray, O Lord. Be merciful and answer me! Psalm 27:4,7 The Holy Bible, Living Translation

The greatest joy of my life is when we communion together.

The next greatest is when I share this with others and it guides them to You.

Happy are those who hear the joyful call to worship, for they will walk in the light of your presence, Lord. Psalm 89:15 The Holy Bible, Living Translation

I give thanks for these precious treasures in the name of the greatest treasure of all, 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

I was Convicted

delightful panoramic water dance

May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing to you, O Lord, my rock and my redeemer. Psalm 19:14 The Holy Bible, New Living Testament

Recently I was convicted while reading a morning devotional. The Holy Spirit convicted me that the words of my mouth did not match the meditation of my heart. Someone was terribly abusive to me and I said some very unchristian words in anger and frustration (the abuser did not care that her actions caused me great physical pain).

I promptly repented and even though she is still abusive my meditations with my Beloved are in love again.

It does not matter how much anyone is physically and or mentally abusive to me. All that matters is my loving obedient relationship with my Heavenly Beloved. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah Heseh (God is love) bless me to always keep my focus on our loving relationship no matter how abusive those around me are. It is the anchor that hows me close to You in those horrible storms. I humbly request this in the name of He who calmed the violent storm on the seas for His disciples Jesus Christ. Amen

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

We Also Need to be Continuously Expanding

FOLLOWING CHRIST

  O Lord, truly I am Your servant. Psalm 116:16 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

There are some that meditate upon the meaning of life while contributing nothing to it. What a waste of life.

There are those who are so concerned about the here and now that they think nothing about eternity. What a meaningless life.

Both are wrong.

Yes we are to be working and planning for this life in harmony with Jehovahs will.

However, we also need to be continuously expanding and growing in our spiritual development at the guidance of the Holy Spirit. This will ultimately lead us from becoming earthly servants of our Beloved King, Jesus to being His spiritual Heavenly servants in the home Jehovah has prepared for us.

In the Christian life we must not neglect the visible , yet the invisible must be supremely regarded. In other words we are to be studious unto our earthly duties, like working to support ourselves while studiously being good servants to our Divine Heavenly King. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah ELOHIM YAKOL (God, the Most Able) bless me to concentrate upon the appropriate things in the appropriate manner and in the appropriate time so as to not devote too much time to one or the other. I sincerely ask this in the name of He who walked in perfect harmony when I He walked amongst us Jesus Christ. Amen

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love fill your heart today and every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

I Am in Thy Presence.

 You will show me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; In Your right hand there are pleasures forevermore. Psalm 16:11 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Jehovah is the best guidance Councillor there is.

He should be, He made us for a specific purpose and the wise follow the path of life He has predestined for them to walk. As we obey His choices for us we experience a oneness with Him which blesses us with a Divine joy which nothing can compare with.

The pleasures are communion with Him and seeing the fruit of our Divine labor. The ultimate pleasure is being blessed with communion with Him in eternity forevermore.

“Help me, Lord, to remember that religion is not to be confined to the church… nor exercised only in prayer and meditation, but that every where I am in Thy Presence.” Susanna Wesley

Prayer: Oh how I exalt Thee Jehovah Pryyand God is my best friend, my most cherished love for the privilege of sharing loving moments with You. They are the most treasured time of my life. I extol Thee in the name of my best friend with whom I cherish every moment we are together Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

The Best Cathedral I Have Attended

 And the glory and majesty and splendor of the Lord will be revealed Isaiah 40:5 Holy Bible Amplified Version

The best cathedral I have attended was Jehovahs.

To the world it is called nature but to the Christian it is called “Gods Cathedral”.

The reason for this is because it is in nature that Jehovah reveals the most of His splendor, majesty, glory and awesome beauty. That is the reason “I come to the garden” is so relevant to me. Because, when I am in nature that is when I am the closest unto my Heavenly Beloved like the song says. It does not matter if it is on the shore of a lake or ocean, walking through the forest or a meadow.

The sights and fragrances peel back an amazing creator who loves me and desires to have me come to His cathedral to share a conversation together with me. It may be to comfort and encourage me, it may be to offer words of guidance to me or it may be just to share time together in Holy Communion of love.

The melody of the birds and crickets choir sings of His love, indeed many times I join in with my flute playing a love song for my cherished one in Heaven. It is relaxing yet deeply intimate. Here we share close camaraderie that is available no where else.

“We live in a world starved for solitude, silence, and privacy: and therefore starved for meditation and true friendship.” C.S. Lewis

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Bara (The Lord Creator) for blessing me with sharing not only the beauty of Thy creation but the amazing privileged of spending loving communion with You in You magnificent creation. I exalt You in the name of He who I long to walk through Heavens garden with Jesus Christ my best friend. Amen.

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

Was It a Blessing?

In order that Satan might not outwit us, for we are not unaware of his schemes. 2 Corinthians 2:11 New International Version

HIS INSTRUCTION

 

One day I felt the Lord moving me to go sit beside the river on a cement walkway to do my meditation while living in Asia. Once there, men and women were constantly interrupting me trying to get me to give them or their children or grandchildren free English lessons. It was explained to them that I was spending time with Jehovah in meditation. They did not care and kept on
pestering me to teach them English. I naturally, became extremely agitated but remained meek (meek means keeping your temper under control.

Then I felt the Holy Spirit to merely explain to them I was meditating and would appreciate it if hey respected that and left me alone. When they persisted they were ignored. When they understood that they were being ignored they left me alone.

Why do you think Jehovah would send me to a place where there was constant harassment?
Do you think it was to teach me to be polite but firm with others?  Do you think it was to teach me to concentrate on meditation and not allow the devil to interfere with it (I am not saying the men and women were devils but rather that Satan was using them to interfere with it)?

Do you think that was a blessing in disguise?

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rabbi (God our teacher) for blessing me with an important lesson that is expanded so much in my life. I joyously exalt You in the name of He who never allowed the devil to interfere with His divine life when He walked the earth Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

The Perfect Rest Spot

The Lord replied, “My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.” Exodus 33:14 New International Version.

Image

The rest Jehovah is referring to here is not a get away like going on vacation to a hotel resort or cabin in the woods.

Rather it is referring to having rest in His sanctuary.

This of course is spiritual rather than physical.

The way we do this is to have confidence like a child does their trusted loved one that when they are hurt or afraid they call out to them and they reassure them and protect them.

There was one time when I was trying to meditate upon scripture when there was a lot of noise all around me and there was frustration rather than rest.

I called out to my Beloved and a deep feeling of peace and rest encompassed me allowing me to continue.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Shalom for the sanity saving peace You so generously encompass me with when the devil attempts to attack me and separate us during our special time and any time to cause us to lose our temper and shame Your name. I in great adulation praise You for this in the name of He who was tempted just like us and overcame Jesus Christ. Amen

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