Satisfy the Heart

heart-at-peace

 In peace [and with a tranquil heart] I will both lie down and sleep, For You alone, O Lord, make me dwell in safety and confident trust. Psalm 4:8 Holy Bible Amplified Bible

Today I see so much anger, depression and stress.

Do you wonder why?

Many say it is because we live in such a fast paced world where folks want instant gratification.

When I walk, sit down and enjoy communion with my Beloved in Gods Cathedral (nature) I experience peace and tranquility such as may be blessed in no other manner.

Many say it is because with the electronic and internet world there is no face to face conversations anymore and society does not nurture personal relationships.

No matter where I am Jehovah is always there and we share casual and deep conversations. He never puts me on hold, is too busy or bored to share communion with me. We enjoy a deep loving, respectful relationship.

Many face deep depression because they have no one to talk with and listen to them or bless them with wise advice.

Jehovah is always there, Jehovah always cares. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Jehovah is always there for me when I need Him. He patiently listens to my cries and when I am exhausted he blesses me with His gentle love ans peace. Then He blesses me with Divine wisdom to resolve all my problems.

Read your Bible about what Jesus experienced when he walked amongst us. There is not one thing you are going through that he has not experienced.

What are you waiting for Child?

Jehovah is waiting for you with open loving arms. Go to Him and He will bless you with Heavenly peace, love and joy.

“Who except God can give you peace? Has the world ever been able to satisfy the heart?” Gerard Majella

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Shalom (The Lord blesses with Peace) for blessing me with peace through the many storms in my life. Thank you with blessing me with Your Heavenly joy that is only nurtured through daily communion with You. Thank you for blessing me with the most awesome love affair there ever was, is and can be. I thank you for these cherished treasures through the Prince of Peace Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Only if You Let It.

flowers caressing blazing red cross

 

Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee; because he trusteth in thee. Holy Bible , American Standard Version

I am a caregiver for my elderly mother. She is extremely stubborn and independent. Because of health reasons she has lost a lot of her independence. This causes a lot of friction between us. Many times I feel like I am going to explode and I have to get away from her. The only thing to calm me down is a cigarette. As well she is stubborn and refuses to listen to listen to anyone. She is right and the whole world is wrong (even though she does not know what she is talking about). Then when things go south she always blames everyone but herself. I go almost a month without smoking and then she gets into one of her moods and look out. Then I need a cigarette and we do not talk with each other for a few days. This has been going on for three years. Each time I prayed for wisdom on how to handle her and then read an article on how a man was stressed out and was told that the reason for his stress was because only if you let it stress you out it will. Now that sounds reasonable but then how do you handle the situation? Later while reading the Bible this verse suck out to me: Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee; because he trusteth in thee. Holy Bible , American Standard Version

It makes perfect sense.

When stress comes I remove myself from the situation and allow it to drive me to my knees where I belong in prayer. And Jehovah answers my prayer with peace and strength.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Machsi – Lord my Refuge for blessing me with the privilege of entering into Your holy sanctuary where You bless me with peace, healing, comfort and fortitude to carry on in my duties (duty is an act of love) to You and my mother. I praise You in the name of the Prince of Peace Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

 

Cleavet: It has taken a year and a half but mom has finally settled down and there is a lot less problems now. She has even begun going back to church regularly for the first time in forty years. I have almost kicked the nicotine habit and know by Gods grace one day it shall be permanently conquered.

Counsel and Understanding are His.

GODS ASSURANCE

 “To God belong wisdom and power;  counsel and understanding are his. Job 12:13 Holy Bible, New International Version

Where do you go for counseling?

Some go to psychiatrists but they receive their flawed understanding from man. How many of them deal with your problems by pushing drugs on you?

I prefer to go to Jesus. The wonderful thing about Jesus is not only His infinite wisdom and power but because He suffered as we have He has been there and done it He understands everything we endure. Perhaps that is why He is called a wonderful councillor. Now He may guide you to qualified Christian counsellors or through His word and power along with His wisdom He may assist you on His own. I was blessed that He provided me with both.

Some go to these questionable counsellors you see on TV. But can they provide you with the wisdom and power that Christ can or do they go for TV ratings and your pocket book?

Some go to self help books but again, can they and do they give you individual counselling? Do they know you intimately like Jesus does? Do they love you like Jesus does? Can they bless you with power like Christ does?

Whenever I have a problem I always go to Jesus and He has a hundred per cent successes rate with me.

God delights to meet the faith of one who looks up to Him and says,“Lord, You know that I cannot do this—but I believe that You can!” –Amy Carmichael

How about you, where do you go for the best counselling?

Almighty God, who hast promised to hear the petitions of those who ask in thy Son’s Name: We beseech thee mercifully to incline thine ear to us who have now made our prayers and supplications unto thee; and grant that those things which we have asked faithfully according to thy will, may be obtained effectually, to the relief of our necessity, and to the setting forth of thy glory; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. BOOK OF COMMON PRAYER

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Ori (the Lord is my Light) for blessing me with lighting the way of life You have chosen for me to travel and for Your amazing wisdom and guidance to prudently resolve all the problems that darken my life. I extol Thee in the name of He whose light guides us to You and our Heavenly home Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

He also Brought Me Up.

CHRISTS POWER

He also brought me up out of a horrible pit, Out of the miry clay, And set my feet upon a rock, And established my steps. Psalm 40:2

mire a troublesome or intractable situation, heavy often deep mud or slush Merriam Webster dictionary

When I was a tree planter and we worked in deep mud it clung to our boots and made walking extremely labourous and difficult. Clay clings to you when wet and hardens like cement when it dries out.

What situation are you in that is clinging to you and dragging you into exhaustion, frustration and desperation? Is it a habit that is destroying your life?

You do not need self help groups or satanic politically correct filth that teaches that if you work real hard you will conquer whatever problem you have in your life.

You need the power of the Holy Spirit which Jehovah abundantly blesses us with when we surrender it unto Him. Now it may happen instantaneously or it may take a while.

When I surrendered the destructive addiction of alcoholism to Jehovah the Holy Spirit instantly crushed it and expelled it from me. When I decided to quit smoking it was a daily battle (at the time of this writing it has been two months and the struggle is still continuing). Some times I gave in and had a smoke but the determination is there to destroy this filthy habit. I know it cannot be done by my own will power but by working with the Holy Spirit we will eventually eternally eliminate it from my body.

For a righteous man may fall seven times And rise again. Proverbs 24:16 Holy Bible, New King James Version

Either way, the Lord will bless you with firm footing to not only destroy the wicked destructive habit but He will bless you with a new firm path that leads you to a deeper love and appreciation for Him. When that happens and you encounter someone else trying to battle a destructive habit it is your duty to give testimony of how Jehovah freed you from your slavery and encourage them lovingly.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Mephalti (The Lord my Deliverer) for blessing me with delivering me from destructive habits that were too strong for me to conquer on my own by Your mighty power. I exalt Thee in the name of He who is the name we call upon to rescue us from all devastating weaknesses Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

The Battle that Wasn’t.

HOPE IN THE LORD

 

 

You will keep him in perfect peace, Whose mind is stayed on You,Because he trusts in You. Isaiah 26:3 New King James Version Holy Bible

One morning as soon as I woke up my head felt like it was going to explode in flames and my finger tips felt like they were going to explode. I knew this was a with drawl symptom of stopping smoking. There was a quite little voice that informed me not to reach for any niccorette gum, lozenges or the patch. I felt Jehovah telling me He was going to beat it.

Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. Romans 8:26 New King James Version Holy Bible

Now was decision time: 1 I could surrender to the craving and buy a pack. This would mean ultimate defeat.

2 I could trust Jehovah and obey His instructions.

I felt the Lord directing me to a quiet wood lot. Silly me, had the disbelief that it was going to be smack down time like in the phony wrestling some folks waste their time watching on TV. There was a fantasy of the devil pinning me to the mat and then my super hero Jesus climbing into the ring and giving he devil the what for and casing him away. The reality of it was I laid on a mat and was completely encompassed by peace and strength that could only be the gift of the Holy Spirit.

And He said to her, “Daughter, be of good cheer; your faith has made you well. Go in peace.” Luke 8:48 New King James Version Holy Bible

Whenever the desire hits me I either reach for Rescue Remedy or the Bible.

The Bible and prayer works better.

In order to receive Jehovahs blessing it is a two part sequence. First you have to have firm faith and believe. Sometimes part of having faith is taking the first step.

Second Jehovah will then bless you. Now you may not receive your request coming to fulfillment because it is either ungodly or because it is not what Jehovah has planned for you.

There was once a prayer for revenge because of what was deemed a serious offense against me. That prayer was denied but instead the Lord blessed me years later seeing that what was done was nothing more that an unintentional misunderstanding.

For years I prayed to be blessed with a Godly woman to be my wife and for us to be blessed with children. That has never come to pass. It would have been impossible to serve my Heavenly King if I were married and had children.

It is impossible to be a Christian without faith. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Having faith is a lifetime of work. It is not a one time deal.

Each time your faith is rewarded your faith will grow but needs to continue to grow until we are walking the streets of Heaven.

Trust Jehovah with your life, His wisdom far surpasses ours. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Please Jehovah-Jireh (God is our Provider) bless me with providing me with them means to grow my faith in You. In so doing my Love I will also be blessed with drawing closer unto You. I sincerely request this in the name of He who had faith enough in You to go to the cross Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Breakdown of Society.

descrection

 And you, fathers, do not provoke your children to wrath, but bring them up in the training and admonition of the Lord. Ephesians 6:4 Holy Bible, New King James Version

I believe that when you break down the family, you break down society. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Now that does not mean you are to remain in an abusive relationship.

“Train your child in the way in which you know you should have gone yourself.” Charles H. Spurgeon

How many times have we reflected on our past and wish we could change it?

When you are a parent you can pass these mistakes as well as your triumphs onto your children to help guide them through life.

“The tasks connected with the home are the fundamental tasks of humanity.” Theodore Roosevelt

For those of us that are old enough to remember do you remember those that in my opinion are destroyer of the family the  (womens lib) spewing on how they were on a biological clock and wanted to get pregnant ? Because they relegated men to the trash can they wanted to get pregnant by artificial insemination because they said they did not need a father in the family. Look at the results. Could it be boys raised by feminists are confused as how to be a man because there were none in their family life? Could that be why so many males today are so feminine?

In many Asian countries the mother raises the children and could that by why there is so much homosexuality there and the men are so feminine there?

“There is only one way to bring up a child in the way he should go and that is to travel that way yourself.” Abraham Lincoln

We need to walk with our children through life not shove them off to babysitters like sports teams or other extra curricular activities. We need to spend time with them not just having fun but teaching them life lessons. Other wise, when they leave the nest they will be completely unprepared for the world out there.

The most important duty of every parent and grandparent is to teach them about Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. To help them become adopted members of a Holy Family.

Prayer: Oh Jehovah Abba (God our Father) please bless those who were raised fatherless to be introduced unto You so that will be blessed to know what a father is. This blessing they will in turn teach their children and may it restore Godly families to our society which so desperately needs it. I humbly request this in the name of my adored bib brother Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Will Find It.

And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me. He who finds his life will lose it, and he who loses his life for My sake will find it. Matthew 10:38-39 New King James Version

How many for eons have folks wondered the meaning of life?

They foolishly waste their time amassing material wealth.

Those with the most toys when they die are not the happiest nor the riches, they are the saddest and poorest in spirit., Joseph- Anthony: Green

Chasing after satanic religions like buddihism or new agers still leaves them with a empty feeling and purpose.

There is only one way to enlightenment and that is through the Holy Spirit. All else is satan disguised as light as he leads you down to an eternal Hell. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Some try to maintain a super fit body all of their lives, sorry but you will be in for quite the shock on your death bed when you realize it was all for naught. We all die and then go to our eternal rewards’. That is not to say we should not take proper care of our bodies, just do not worship them.

Some find it in raising a family. Oh the deep sadness when their children grow up and they are left with an empty nest and an empty heart, especially if they distance themselves from you which is all too common today. There is nothing wrong with enjoying having a Christian family but those who worship their children and grand children are raising selfish, self centered child which grow into selfish, self centered adults. The only time they call mommy or daddy or grandma or grandpa is when they want money. They do not appreciate it and give nothing in return. They never call, come to visit or help. They are waiting for them to die so they can get their inheritance and spend it foolishly.  I unfortunately see all too often as seniors live a daily hell of loneliness and deep sadness in isolation. This is a shame upon the children and a disgrace.

Others worship their careers. It is all for naught. They will lose it when their career is out dated, which happens all too common today. In many instances people are replaced by robots. How about when you retire, then what are you going to do with your life if it has been centered on your career?

But when we become free willing servant to Christ our King we will find the true meaning of their lives when Jehovah blesses us with revealing it to them. It will not be easy the following path Jehovah has chosen for you but well worth it in our daily lives and in our eternal ones.

Following Christ is not easy but the rewards are Heavenly. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Rohi – Shepherd for being such a patient and wise Shepherd to this at times obstinate little , sheep. Please bless all who place their faith in You with guiding them to the lives You have purposed for them before they were even born. I exalt You and humble beseech You in the name of the greatest shepherd Jesus Christ. Amen.

May Jehovah bless you today and every day with His precious love, joy and peace.
