A closer walk with our beloved friend.


The Light Above My Head.


I will put My Spirit in you and you will come to life, and I will place you in your own land. Then you will know that I the Lord have spoken, and fulfilled it,” says the Lord.’” Ezekiel 37:14 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

One night while sleeping in the back yard in a tent I was awoken by a blue flame above my head. Thinking the house was on fire I frantically attempted to open the zipper on the tent to get mom out of the house. I was so upset I, at first, did not realize I was vainly attempting to find the zipper on the wrong side of the tent. When I did manage to finally open the tent door and rush outside, there was no flames at all. Confused I crawled back into the tent and promptly fell asleep.

When I woke up the next morning all of my finger tips were tingling, my heart felt as if it was going to burst and my head felt electrified. No, it was not a physical ailment that caused this, I am as strong as a horse.

During morning Bible reading this verse burned into my eyes.

There is concern about what will happen to me when mom passes on to the other side (I am an unpaid caregiver with no savings). Every morning I thank the Lord that even though I do not know what is going to happen, one thing for certain is that He will always take care of me.

In the four years of being a caregiver I have worked tirelessly fixing this place up by myself. The only help the rest of the family is, is when they help themselves to moms money every month. They never come down to help and only call when they want money.

One day after crying out to the Lord about the unfairness of it all, He directed me to go sit out on a trail with my Bible. He spent three hours with verse after verse educating me that the wicked shall lose their inheritance and the righteous shall inherit theirs. I kept on replying that I know my inheritance is in Heaven and that is all I want but it would be nice to have some help from the rest of the family in caring for mom. Finally I have taken the attitude that I get what can be done done and not stress out or work myself into exhaustion attempting to do all the work myself.

This verse seems to be His word pounding into my thick skull that all the work I have done is not for someone else (the wicked family) to profit from (because of the beautification of the property the house has increased in value, which I do not care about but they do because it means they get more money from the inheritance). I shall dwell upon this land in peace, love, joy and security because Jehovah says so and He never lies.

Do not fear [anything], for I am with you; Do not be afraid, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, be assured I will help you; I will certainly take hold of you with My righteous right hand [a hand of justice, of power, of victory, of salvation].’Isaiah 41:10 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Because He lives, I can face tomorrow. Because He lives all fear is gone. Because I know, I KNOW, He holds the future, And life is worth the living just because He lives.” Bill & Gloria Gaither

For I have taken all this to heart, exploring and examining it all, how the righteous (those in right standing with God) and the wise and their deeds are in the hands of God. Ecclesiastes 9: 1 Holy Bible Amplified Version

If you are serving the Lord and are concerned about anything I pray this article has blessed you with strength, confidence, peace and joy.

Prayer : Thank you Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) for blessing me with Your Divine provision through out all of my life. Thank you for promising me a wonderful retirement plan which surpasses anything the world can offer. I exalt Thee in the name of He who will greet me in Your greatest retirement Home every conceived Jesus Christ. Amen

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



We are Most Content When.

 But godliness actually is a source of great gain when accompanied by contentment [that contentment which comes from a sense of inner confidence based on the sufficiency of God]. 1 Timothy 6:6 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

Godliness means that we emulate our treasured Heavenly King. This brings great contentment because we are not bothered by earthly desires nor caught up in worldly cares. We rest in the bosom of He who loves us, cares for us and cares about us. That is all one needs in life to be content.

To be content is described as feeling that one’s needs or desires have been met.

When we walk in harmony with Jehovah it pleases Him to fulfill His cherished childrens desires as long as they are righteous and not greedy.

I am most content when I am in communion with my Heavenly Beloved. Earthly pleasures hold no place in my heart. Therefore my Beloved causes my cup to over run.

As well there is contentment in knowing my cherished one always supplies the daily needs. For this I am immensely grateful and both express it verbally and physically every day.

“We are most content when we are satisfied with what He has given us, grateful for what Jehovah blesses with and generous to those in need.” Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Shalom (The Lord blesses with Peace) for blessing me with peace, contentment and joy through out my life as I walk in harmony with Your sacred choices in my life. I praise Thee in the name of He who guided His disciples unto You Jesus Christ. Amen

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

To Those Who Wait.


The Lord is good to those who wait [confidently] for Him,To those who seek Him [on the authority of God’s word]. Lamentations 3:25 Holy  Bible Amplified Version                                   

One thing I have learned over the numerous years of walking with Christ is that most times there is a lot of waiting.                                                                          

It may take day, it may take weeks, it may take years, it may take a lifetime but Jehovah is always true to His word. Joseph a son of Jehovah                                                                        

At first there is a lot of doubt and worry if He will answer our requests or when He is going to accomplish what He has promised us. This is even worse for the generation that demands instant everything. It must be very difficult for them.                                 

As we mature we learn to have confidence in that what Jehovah promised us will be done in His time and in His way ( even though most time we still wish He would hurry up).                

The reason we have this confidence is because we are familiar with His word and its actions in our lives. We have seen our lives reflected in the Bible through experience and from daily reading it.                                                                                   As well many, times as we read passages in the Bible (which is Jehovahs word) certain passage will remind us of how Jehovah fulfilled His promise in our life without us even realizing it.                                                                                                            I always though I was a patient man until becoming a Christian. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Shalom (The Lord blesses with Peace) for blessing me with Your Divine peace, patience and trust in Your Divine leading in my life. I praise You in the name of He who patiently endured His thick skulled disciples Jesus Christ. Amen.                                          

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

One Waits Quietly.


 It is good that one waits quietly. Lamentations 3:25-26 Holy Bible Amplified Version

When I was a baby Christian, I was the perpetual chicken with its head cut off.

The Lord would give me a revelation of a event that was going to occur. I would go off half cocked all over the place and say:” Is it here Lord?” Look someplace else and repeat the question. Think of a child looking for hidden Easter eggs and that was me.

Reflecting back I can imagine my Beloved in Heaven almost in tears laughing so hard at my impatience and constant inquiries. He never became anger, frustrated or tired of my antics. He knew I had a lesson to learn in patience and He was patient teaching it to me.

Do not think it is easier now that I am a maturer Christian (we are never mature because mature means we have gone as far as is necessary to go which will not occur until we have been in Heaven for a while) because Jehovah will test our patience from time to time to let us know that we always have room to grow.

Patience is not only a virtue but also a attribute that keeps on expanding in our lives under the tutorship of the Holy Spirit. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Shalom (The Lord blesses with Peace) for blessing me with Your Divine peace to encourage my patience in Your timing, in Your way in every aspect of my life. 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.


Outside of Christ.


Be strong in the Lord [draw your strength from Him and be empowered through your union with Him] and in the power of His [boundless] might. Ephesians 6:10 Holy Bible Amplified Version

When we are outside of Christ we are easy pickings for the devil and his minions. Their greatest joy is bringing nothing but sorrow, pain, anger and hatred. He is great at nurturing guilt complexes, jealousy, envy, backbiting, selfishness and a whole litany of other mental problems which slowly destroys all joy from our lives.

As well we are susceptible to being enslaved by society. We fall for the enslavement of trying to keep up with the Jones and stupidly going so deep into debt it will never be paid off. And, if any little catastrophe occurs like a raise in interest rates, a recession ( where you lose your job) the result is that all of your hard work is for naught because you can no longer afford to pay for all your toys and house and lose everything. You are bitter and deeply depressed. We fall for the con men and women that deceive us into foolishly believing that sex out of marriage is fun, drugs are fun, and alcohol abuse is fun ( just look at the rubbish on TV, in the movies and listen to the complete garbage that passes off as music to confirm this). This destroys our minds bodies and spirit over time and leaves us as an empty shell of a being in a total miserable state.

On the flip side when we are in Christ, He blesses us with meaning in life, to enjoy and nurture a loving relationship with Him and a Divine purpose in life, to be obedient servants of our Heavenly King. We never ask why we are here nor what is the meaning of life because our Heavenly King has revealed it to us. When we have this, we have complete strength and wisdom by the Holy Spirit to expose and resist the wicked demons and the foolishness of worldliness. We are blessed with complete fullness of life, both now and eternally.

Outside of Christ, I am weak; in Christ, I am strong.” Watchmen Nee

It is in the storms that Jehovah reveals the most of His love, strength, wisdom and peace that He abundantly blesses us with the most. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Chatsahi (The Lord is my Strength) for blessing me with Divine wisdom and strength to know the devils wiles and blessing with with the strength and wisdom in the proper manner in which to defeat the. I praise You in the name of He who had the strength to defeat the devil in the wilderness Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Heaven is Full Of.


The reward of humility [that is, having a realistic view of one’s importance] and the [reverent, worshipful] fear of the Lord Is riches, honour, and life. Proverbs 22:4 Holy Bible Amplified Version

“Humility is described in the dictionary as: the absence of any feelings of being better than others or lower than others and reverence is profound adoring awed respect

Only the humble can approach Jehovah’s holy throne because they know that they are not greater than Him. They know they need to depend upon Him and be respectful and obedient towards Him.

In return Jehovah blesses them with spiritual riches beyond imagination and nothing can compare to them, especially the Divine love Jehovah bountifully blesses them with every day.

We worship Jehovah because of His numerous blessings of love, joy, peace, comfort, strength and protection He daily blesses us with as well as His amazing friendship.

Honour is described as faithfulness to high moral standards and no one has as high a moral standard as Jehovah. This is a blessing because we avoid many destructive lifestyle choices that only bring ruin, pain and shame to those who live a dishonourable life. It is also described as an asset that brings praise.

Angles shall greet those of Godly honour with songs of praise as they enter into Heavens gate.

And finally it is something given in recognition of achievement and Christ shall honour us with a crown upon our heads when He greets us in Heaven.

Heaven is full of the humble, Hell is full of proud. Joseph a son of Jehovah

“Humility is the Christian’s greatest honour; the higher men climb, the farther they are from heaven.” Burder

Of course the life is not just an eternal one in Heaven but also one of great oneness of walking daily in communion with Christ which is the greatest life of all.

Prayer: Thank you Rabbi (God our Teacher) for blessing me with the Divine wisdom You have bestowed upon me to be a humble honourable child of my Beloved Father in Heaven. I exalt You in the name of His most honorable, humble child Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

The Champion Worry Wort.

 “So do not worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” Matthew 6:34 Holy Bible Amplified Version

I used to be the World Champion Worry Wort. You name it and I would worry about it. I swear I used to worry about if I did not fart during the day (really). It caused endless sleepless nights. It is surprising I did not have ulcers or a heart attack. The stress meter would be on overload.

As my walk with Christ slowly matured more and more was put into His capable hands, starting off small and gradually enlarging as the walk with Him became more and more secure more and more was surrendered to Him. The end result was a good nights sleep ( which is enjoyed almost every night now).

There is more and more serenity in uncertain circumstances.

There now is amazing physical, mental and spiritual health.

Now there are times when there are uncertain circumstances and or situations that arise that is completely out of my control and a panic attack begins. That is when I sprint for a Bible, a quiet place to be with my Beloved and allow Him to comfort and assure me that every thing is under control. The stress meter goes dead and the worry melts away.

“Never dwell on the tomorrow; remember, that it’s God’s and not ours.” Edward B. Pusey

Prayer: Oh a deep heartfelt Thank you my cherished Jehovah Shalom (The Lord blesses with Peace) for blessing me with peace in every aspect of my life because I know You love me, You care, You help me and guide my steps. You are always there through all my difficulties and sorrows. You are the greatest. I praise You 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.
