Regret is Stronger than Gratitude.

be loving like jesus

Do not neglect to extend hospitality to strangers [especially among the family of believers—being friendly, cordial, and gracious, sharing the comforts of your home and doing your part generously]Hebrews 13:2 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

I have seen more people come to a friend or family members funeral than to their house to visit them while they are alive. I hear them wail how much they will miss their relative or friend when in life they neglected them. It is so phony it is pathetic.

I make it a point to be respectful, polite and friendly with every one when possible (there are some unlovable folks in this world who will do nothing but abuse you and use you. They bring nothing but grief to the heart and misery to the life. Those ones are avoided like the plague). You never know if the next time you see them they will be in a casket.

Now that is not the reason to be respectful, polite and friendly with them, we do so as an extension of Christs love in our hearts. We have no regrets at any funeral though.

“Dead people receive more flowers than the living because regret is stronger than gratitude.” Anne Frank

Prayer: Please Jehovah Kal El (voice of God) bless me that my voice may always echo Your voice of love, respect and encouragement to all that come my way this day and every day. I humbly beseech You in the name of He who always spoke in a loving tone when He walked among us Jesus Christ. Amen

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

The Value of Prayer.

 

Let it be [the inner beauty of] the hidden person of the heart, with the imperishable quality and unfading charm of a gentle and peaceful spirit, [one that is calm and self-controlled, not overanxious, but serene and spiritually mature] which is very precious in the sight of God. 1 Peter 3:4 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

I cannot begin my day without prayer. No matter what other matters are pressing down on me, I do not do anything before my morning prayer (unless the house is on fire of course). It is my special time with my Beloved and is precious beyond all others to me. Once or twice I foolishly did go without morning prayer and it was as if an important part of me was missing. Never again do I want to go through that.

Every night before bed I spend time in prayer with my Beloved. The reward is always a beautiful nights sleep. I cannot close my eyes without it. It is oh so very precious to me. So precious in fact that I cannot get to sleep without having that conversation.

Once a week I spend a day in prayer with my Beloved. It is oh so very precious to me. We talk of the previous weeks events and of our love for each other.

You know the value of prayer: it is precious beyond all price. Never, never neglect it Sir Thomas Buxton

A prayerless Christian is not a Christian Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Pryyand (God is my friend) for blessing me with the opportunity to spend as much valuable time with You. Thank you that You are always there and are always willing to both listen and to speak so freely with this adoring child of Yours. I adore You in the name of my big brother in whom I deeply cherish 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

No Man Can Fulfill His Calling.

                                            

Just as each one of you has received a special gift [a spiritual talent, an ability graciously given by God], employ it in serving one another as [is appropriate for] good stewards of God’s multi-faceted grace [faithfully using the diverse, varied gifts and abilities granted to Christians by God’s unmerited favor]. 1 Peter 4:10 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

I remember so many in my younger years bragging that they did not need anybody. They only lived for themselves. Now that they are older and in need of help there is no one to help them and they have no one to love them. They are depressed, lonely folks whose daily life is a living Hell of loneliness.

I have seen so many use their God given talents to help others. Now that they are older and in need of help they are surrounded with folks falling all over them helping them. Their is a contented life filled with love, joy and peace.

Jehovah has endowed each of us with a special talent that is to be used in the community. To neglect that talent or to use it for your own selfish ends is indeed a great sin in our Heavenly Fathers eyes. Those who neglect to use it for their God given purpose pay dearly for it in their elder years.

When you surround yourself with nobody but yourself you end up with nobody but yourself. Joseph a son of Jehovah.  

No man can compass the ends of life by drawing a little line around himself upon the ground. No man can fulfill his calling as a Christian by seeking the welfare of his wife and family only, for these are only a sort of greater self.” Charles Spurgeon

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) for blessing me with plentiful opportunities to enrich myself with the most precious treasure of all, those of the heart, every day. In doing so I know I am also enriching Your heart which enriches my heart all the more. I exalt Thee in the name of my greatest treasure Jesus Christ. Amen.

Wishing you A house full of sunshine, Hearts full of cheer, Love that grows deeper each day of the year. Welsh blessing

Prevents It Flying to God.

SATANS TRAP

Jesus said to him, “If you want to be perfect, go, sell what you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow Me.” But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful, for he had great possessions. Matthew 19:21-22 New King James Version

“The love of worldly possessions is a sort of birdlime (trap), which entangles the soul and prevents it flying to God.” Augustine

In most of the world today most people are slaves.

They foolishly fall for the trap of materialistic pleasures such as a new house (which in my opinion is nothing more than a money pit). Then they are slaves to a mortage and constant upkeep costs. Indeed how many houses are overpriced because of rich immigrants coming in and buying everything up and we cannot afford a house anyway.

They are shallow enough to purchase products that promise they will be physically beautiful while neglecting their spiritual beauty. If have met many that their physical appearances are ugly yet they are the most beautiful souls I have had the privilege to meet. They go out and buy products that run up their credit cards and clothing that is overpriced and they go in debt. Meanwhile those outfits they “Had to have” are sitting in their closets collecting dust. They are slaves to fashion.

I think it is shameful when someone owns a house and they have to rent to storage place because they have too much stuff.

They think buying a certain car will make them happy and cool. I always laugh and ask them if that means they are dorks when they are not in their cars.

It is an empty happiness those whose happiness is found in worldly pleasures.  Joseph- Anthony: Green

 

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El Shaddai ( God who is sufficient for the needs of His people) for all the amazing blessings You abundantly shower upon this child of Yours every day. I exalt You in the name of He who always provides for His cherished sheep Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

The Two Pronged Attack

“Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal.  Matthew 6:19 New King James Version

DEPARTING DEVILS

 

Here is the two pronged attack Satan uses on us:

One Lucifer gets us so interested in gaining material things to keep up with the Jones that puts men and women deeply in debt. 

We grow exhausted in being slaves to a debt that will never be repaid.                           

Every increased possession leads us to new weariness. John Ruskin                                                          

That brings the second attack:                                                                                          

Then you are so busy working to pay off the debt and worrying about it that you neglect time with Jehovah in daily Bible reading and praying and enjoying all the beauty around us that He graciously abundantly blesses us with.                                

I find it funny when taking photos. Many people look at me like I am weird because they see me taking photos of the simple things all around us. I explain the simple beauty in the object and it is as if their eyes are open and they look at me in amazement and say: You know, I walk past that every day to work and never paid any attention to it.”                                                                                                     

When you notice nature, you see Gods handiwork. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Please Jesus Pyrrand (Jesus my friend) bless me to always esteem our loving relationship higher than any material thing that only brings me emptiness and a slave to debt. In Your cherished name I do request this most treasured blessing. Amen.

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