Thank You For Your

The earth is full of the loving kindness of the Lord. Psalms 33:5 The Holy Bible, The Amplified Version

Thank you Jehovah Tsuri (Psalms 19:14 O LORD My Strength) for Your supreme strength that You bless me with through out the day to accomplish the tasks You have assigned for me to do.

Thank you for Your ultimate power to smash the destructive chains of mental, physical and spiritual imprisonment in my life.

Thank you that You are closest to me when the storms are their fiercest and the flames are their hottest.

Thank you for You gentle loving care when deep sorrow and pain are crushing down upon me. You love gently lifts me up.

Thank you for Your sharing Your beauty with me both amazing ones like watching the Northern Lights and delicate ones like watching the gentle swirling ballet of a winters snowfall.

Thank you for the awesome moments when we commune together, just being together. I love the overwhelming experience of Your love and being in harmony with You.

Oh, my Beloved Father, Your daily blessings upon me are too numerous to count.

I am humbled and grateful for Your overwhelming loving kindness and graciousness towards me.

I thank You in the name of Your greatest gift to me, Jesus Christ. Amen .

Another Word For

So I gave them up to the stubbornness of their heart, To walk in [the path of] their own counsel. Psalms 81:12 The Holy Bible, The Amplified Version 

Stubbornness is another word for selfishness.

laugh at fools

Stubbornness is refusing to listen to others because they are telling you something you do not want to hear.

So a doctor informs a diabetic they cannot drink soda pop any more. The diabetic tells the doctor to stuff it, continues on drinking soda pop. One day his body cannot take the abuse any longer and goes into diabetic shock. Then because they are selfish (which is what immaturity is as well) instead of accepting responsibility for their actions, they blame the doctor.

Believe me, I have seen a lot of it.

When Jehovah tells us to stop doing this or to start doing that, it is for our own good, not because He is some cold hearted tyrant. Because He has given us free will, it is up to us to choose to obey or disobey. We disobey at our own peril.

To disobey Jehovahs guidance only leads to self destruction. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah Rophe (Exodus 15:26 The LORD (our) Healer) always help me have a submissive heart to listen, understand and obey you in every aspect of my life. I know this leads to spiritual, physical and mental health and healing. I sincerely request this in the name of the greatest Healer of all, 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. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Stay Away From

 Have nothing to do with foolish talk and those who want to argue. It can only lead to trouble. 2 Timothy 2:23 The Holy Bible, The New Living Version.

WRONG WALK

At some time in everyone’s life we meet those who love to argue. They will argue about anything and everything. Chances are, these same folks will never admit they are wrong.

Avoid them like the plague. Because, that is exactly what they are, a disease to the heart and mind to all they come in contact with.

Unless absolutely necessary do not even say hello to such perverts because doing so opens the door for another argument about nothing that will get you all worked up. Seeing this brings these sicko’s the greatest delight and make you look like a fool.

Not only that but when you lose control you make Jesus and all Christians look bad which, when they know you are a Christian, is their intention.

So, for Christs sake and your sanity stay away from them.

Stay away from mental and spiritual thieves. They will dance the dance of fury with you all the way to Hell. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah Metsudhathi (Psalms 18:2 The LORD My High Tower ) bless me to stand guard in Your high tower for the low lifes that enjoy nothing more than to tear down others, myself included.                                                                                                                                              Please bless me to never open the welcoming gates of entering into my social grace because they bring nothing with them but destruction.                                                                                                    I sincerely request this in the name of He who only open the gates to His heart to those who were prepared to participate with Him in a loving relationship, Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Good That Goes with Bad.

 The Lord also keeps safe those who suffer. He is a safe place in times of trouble. Those who know Your name will put their trust in You. For You, O Lord, have never left alone those who look for You. Psalm 9:9-10 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

There is always good that goes with bad.

Look at the virus that is snaking around the world right now. Yes it is causing a lot of sickness and death. But, it is also contributing to a lot of good.

Look at how many families are spending time together like they did forty years ago.

Look at how folks are looking out for each other in their communities.

Look at how folks are coming together in creative ways in their church to keep together.

Look at how many folks are having time to read their Bibles, for some, maybe the first time in their life.

Look at how many folks are taking walks on nature trails which is good for their mental, physical and spiritual health.

And, most important of all is look at how many folks are spending quality time with Jehovah, perhaps for the first time in their lives.

It is in the difficult times we come the closest to Jesus. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Immeka (Judges 6:12 The LORD Is with You ) for walking with me through these difficult times.                                                                                                                            May you use me to encourage others and help others under Your guidence as You have helped and encouraged me.                                                                                                                                                I apologize that it took at catastrophe like this for me to come and spend time with You.                             I thank you in the name of He who always fulfills His promise to never leave me nor desert me, Jesus Christ. Amen         

    JEHOVAHS CARE                                                                                                                                                                The gift of love, the gift of joy, the gift of peace, these are the greatest gifts that can be given. They are given in abundance to all those in Christs family by our Heavenly loving  Father. May you be blessed with plentiful opportunities to share these with those around you today.

Warn Those Who Are

BEING TORN DOWN SPIRITUALLY

 And we urge you, brothers and sisters, warn those who are idle and disruptive, encourage the disheartened, help the weak, be patient with everyone. 1 Thessalonians 5:14 The Holy Bible New International Version

Notice it does not say to support the lazy trouble makers?

I see so many good hearted but wrong minded support the lazy drunks and drug addicts and welfare bums that foolishly believe we owe them a free ride.

That is wrong.

You are not helping them but hurting them by encouraging them to continue on in a destructive lifestyle for both themselves and for society (because many commit crimes to support their habit which hurts innocent folks).

There is an old saying that idle hands are the devils playground. Do you notice that drug addicts are also habitual criminals? Perhaps doing time in a third world prison would do them more good than holding their hand and encouraging this lifestyle because there is no repercussions for their actions.

They are to be warned that their lifestyle is wrong. If they choose to continue on then do so on their own and face harsh consequences for their actions.

Our financial, mental and spiritual efforts are to go to help those who are willing to put forward an effort to help themselves.

To support lazy bums and drunks and drug addicts is a sin because it is a waste of our resources which should go to help those who are prepared to help themselves. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) bless me with providing me with guidance to those who are in need and with the wisdom to differentiate between those in need and those who are too lazy to support themselves. I humbly request this in the name of He who provided only to those who put forward and effort to help themselves Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with plentiful opportunities to share these with those around you today.

For All Live in Family Care Givers

CHRISTS STRENGTH

 Speaking not only from my own experience but from listening to those  who are caring for their elder parents they receive nothing but continuous slaps in the face for their loving care. Then when many of the adult children are mentally and physically exhausted and put the parents into a seniors home the parents cry baby and try to blame the children all the while refusing to take responsibility for their own actions. Add to that that the care givers seldom receive any help from their siblings who are usually leeches. The only time they call the parent is when they want money from them.

It seems to me that the most ungrateful folks are the ones that need the help the most yet abuse those who are helping them. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Although this may seem like a curse it is in reality a blessing.

Because, it is in our hard times that we grow the closest to Jehovah and develop the deepest of love, respect and appreciation for Him. Here are some words of encouragement and strength from our loving, caring Father when we feel beaten down by the ungrateful abusive behaviour of those we are helping.

Whatever you do [whatever your task may be], work from the soul [that is, put in your very best effort], as [something done] for the Lord and not for men. Colossians 3:23 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Let us not grow weary or become discouraged in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap, if we do not give in. Galatians 6:9 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

“God never made a promise that was too good to be true.” — Dwight L. Moody

Therefore, those who are ill-treated and suffer in accordance with the will of God must [continue to] do right and commit their souls [for safe-keeping] to the faithful Creator. 1 Peter 4:19 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

 “Where God’s finger points, there God’s hand will make a way.”

Prayer: Oh Jehovah ‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) I cannot praise You enough for Your wonderful love, strength, provision, comfort, healing, wisdom and encouragement to continue on being obedient unto Your command;If a widow has children or grandchildren, these should learn first of all to put their religion into practice by caring for their own family and so repaying their parents and grandparents, for this is pleasing to God. 1 Timothy 5:4 Holy Bible, New International Version. Please comfort those who, because of the selfishness, brutish behaviour and contempt of their aged parents or grand parents towards the care givers they cannot endure the contemptuous behaviour any more and have to put them in a seniors home. Do not allow the wicked parents or grand parents to put a guilt trip on the adult children. It is their own fault they are where they are. I exalt You and humbly beseech You in the name of He who is loving and the Supreme Judge Jesus Christ. Amen

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

On the Alter Of

And do not give the devil an opportunity [to lead you into sin by holding a grudge, or nurturing anger, or harboring resentment, or cultivating bitterness]Ephesians 4:27 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Unfortunately, one of my bad dispositions is letting go of a grudge. Being more mature I have learned to place it at the feet of Jesus. He heals the wound and avenges the wrong doer.

Many times however, it is played out in my head where they are shamed while yours truly look like the hero. This childish fantasy is surely played out in all of our heads. Rather than dwell on the wound others have inflicted from personal experience, it is better to listen to old hymns that praise Jehovah. This fills the heart with joy rather than anger and bitterness.

Now of course the wound may need to be healed by going to righteous Christian councilors to help deal with the lingering pain.

Those that nurture the grudge are cultivating weeds of hate and anger which suffocate the beautiful plants of love and joy. They become mean, bitter angry old men and women in their later years.

Of course this devastating disease cause great harm to both the mental and physical body.

It also affects the relationship with Christ. Because He is love and there is hate and anger in the heart the two are not comparable.

I have seen more than a few who have sacrificed their physical and mental health on the alter of bitterness and grudges. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: PleaseYAHWEH-Ropheka (God our healer) heal the cuts both superficial and the gougingly deep ones that have been inflicted upon me.

Please empower me to concentrate on all Your loving attributes instead of foolishly wasting my time rerunning the event over in my head where I glorify myself while shaming the offender. That is such a wast of time and is very childish.

I sincerely request this in the name of He who heals all wounds Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Do Not Take Too Much Hay

                                                          

One hand full of rest and patience is better than two fists full of labor and chasing after the wind. Ecclesiastes 4:6 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

I have seen far too many work themselves into self destruction. They never have enough. It is like trying to catch the wind, it is impossible. They work overtime every opportunity they can get just so they can buy that new car or go on that great cruise. If you have a family they are the ones that suffer because of your absence. You will lose in the long run as well. Because you neglected your children when they were young, when you get old and need help they will neglect you.

Could this be the reason there is so much road rage on the highways today?

You also lose with your mental and physical health. You will have nervous breakdowns, you will have insomnia, you will develop ulcers, you will develop heart problems. Then what good does all that money do you?

Live a simple life and take time to be with your family and with your Heavenly Father. It is much more beneficial to you.

Do not take too much hay in your pitchfork (do not take on too much work).

  Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Shalom (The Lord blesses with Peace) that You bless me with peace when I rest in Your presence both in my daily life and during that one special day we commune together. I exalt Thee in the name of the Prince of Peace Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Introverts are Closer To.

Early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left [the house], and went out to a secluded place, and was praying there. Mark 1:35 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

This is why I believe introverts are closer to Jehovah than extroverts.

Introverts thrive on being alone in quiet places. That is the only place to be blessed with true communion with Jehovah.

Extroverts are always busy (usually having fun) and no time to be in quiet solitude with our Beloved.

How are you to worship someone you spend little to no time with?

How are you supposed to listen to His voice if your too busy to sit quietly and listen to Him?

How are you supposed to share the wonders of His creation if you are too busy shopping or doing sports or any other activity that steal time from Him?

Us introverts thrive on solitude with Jehovah. It is the air we breathe. And, it blesses us with extreme closeness with Jehovah and His wonders. And, added benefit is that spending quiet time alone with our Beloved is good for our mental health. It melts away our anxiety, anger, worry and grief (it certainly does me) as He reassures us that everything is okay. He is taking care of it. It is good for our physical health. Because we have less stress on our minds it is beneficial for our bodies. And best of all it is fabulous for our spiritual health. Experiencing Jehovahs Divine love for us renews and strengthens our spirits.

Solitude matters, and for some people, it’s the air they breathe” Susan Cain

Prayer: All praise and glory unto You Jehovah-‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) for blessing me with always being oh so very close with me in our cherished quiet times. They are the most special times in my life. I praise You in the name of He whom is my best friend that I delight in being with as much as possible 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

When Folks Concentrate On

                                        

 Delight yourself in the Lord, And He will give you the desires and petitions of your heart. Psalm 37:4 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

We see it constantly (especially in the western countries) where folks foolishly go so deep into debt they will never get out of it. The end result is a lot of discontentment in their lives because they are slaves unto consumerism (which is a cruel master). There is no peace in their lives because they are constantly worried about paying off their debt. There is no love in their hearts because they are angry they are so far in debt. There certainly is no joy in their live because they lament over their pitiful state. The end result of this is a lot of physical sickness like ulcers and mental health. As well the heavy load of constant stress wears out their immune system so they are easy prey for any and all diseases that come their way.

When we are delighted in our loving relationship with Jehovah we do not need material stimulation to appease us. Our desires are to expand our loving relationship with Him and with others. This results in a life filled with contentment, love, joy and peace. As well, those who delight in our Lord have fewer sickness than those not in our Heavenly family because of Jehovahs peace, love and joy that reigns in our hearts.

When folks concentrate on Heavenly desires rather than earthly desires there is a lot more contentment, peace, love and joy in their lives. Joseph son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) for bountiful blessings of Your Heavenly treasure in my life and in my heart. They are the truest treasure of all. I praise You in the name of the greatest blessed treasure of all Jesus Christ. Amen

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