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

This Verse Says It All.

evil desires

 And we are instructed to turn from godless living and sinful pleasures. We should live in this evil world with wisdom, righteousness, and devotion to God Titus 2:11-12 The Holy Bible New Living Translation

This verse says it all.

There are those that foolishly believe that once they are saved by grace alone they can go out and do whatever their flesh desires and it is okay because Jesus died for their sins.

You cannot have it both ways.

Either you will be a slave to fleshly desires or you will obediently serve Christ of your own free will.

The first one is a cruel slave master which kills the spirit and slowly painfully destroys the soul.

The second one brings life to the body and brings joyous eternity to the spirit. Christ blesses us with love, peace and joy, the world curses us with anger, fear, depression, worry and unfulfillment. I choose Christ. Which one do you choose? Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever) Ps10:16 for blessing me with the honour of being Your humble obedient servant. I thank You in Your majestic name. Amen

Christ blesses us with love, peace and joy May you be blessed with many opportunities to share these with others today.

Here is The

GODS HELP

 

For God is working in you, giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases him. Philippians 2:13 The Holy Bible New Living Translation

Here is the meaning of life

. Jehovah places a desire within you to serve Him in a specific manner. He sends the best Guidance Councillor there is to help us, The Holy Spirit. This is not just for teenagers but for everyone at every stage of life.

From a lot of personal experience I can tell you that it is going to be difficult, sometimes impossible to obey.

That is good because it teaches you to depend upon Him for the resources necessary to accomplish the task.

It is going to be painful but that is good because it helps you depend upon Him for the strength necessary to succeed at the task. Then end result of course is it draws you ever closer to Him in a loving obedient relationship.

Jesus is the only one that blesses me with meaning in life, both here and now and in eternity in our Heavenly home. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Rohi ( Jesus is our Divine Shepherd ) Psalm 23 for providing me with meaning in my life through Your Divine leading. I exalt You in Your glorious name. Amen

May you be blessed with peace and joy every day.

Have You Ever Worked For

GREATEST CONTENTMENT

Work willingly at whatever you do, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people. Colossians 3:23Holy Bible, New Living Translation Version

Have you ever worked for the nit pickers before?

Nit picker are those that no matter how good your work is they can always find something wrong with it. They take all the steam out of your desire to excel at what you are doing. This is a real tragedy when the nit pickers are parents.

It takes a lot of work and therapy to get over their poison they inject into their childrens impressionable minds.

Teachers can have the same short term affect.

When I do work I like to step back and ask my Heavenly Father if He is pleased with what has been done.

Most times He is and there is a warm feeling of satisfaction flowing through me.

When He isn’t there is no scolding. He just redirects my effort and then I step back and marvel at what we have accomplished and gratefully thank Him. There has been numerous times when He guides me to do something that I have no desire to do but do it with great gusto to please Him, which gives immeasurable pleasure to me.                                   

Most times when the project is completed I see what He was doing and the finished project looks fantastic even though it looked stupid and was laughed at by others or looked ugly but was beautiful when completed.

Sometimes we will not see the purpose of His task until we enter our Heavenly home. That is okay though because we take satisfaction in knowing what we did pleased our Heavenly King in the here and now.

Work for Jehovah, not man. It is appreciated so much more. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever) for the esteem of being Your humble, obedient, loyal servant. It is the greatest delight that can be offered to me. I exalt You in the name of the King of Kings Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with the gift of love, the gift of peace, the gift of joy. May you be blessed with numerous opportunities to share these gifts with others today.

Your Communication Will Be

GUARD YOUR INPUT

 The end and culmination of all things is near. Therefore, be sound-minded and self-controlled for the purpose of prayer [staying balanced and focused on the things of God so that your communication will be clear, reasonable, specific and pleasing to Him.]1 Peter 4:7 Holy Bible Amplified Version           

How can you be sound minded if you are watching unsound garbage which passes for entertainment on TV or in the movies                                                        

How can you be sound minded with the rubbish they call music screaming in your ears with its enticing you to live a life that is filthy in Jehovahs eyes?

Garbage in , garbage out. If you listen to this garbage it will pollute your mind to emulate this rubbish. 

Is it not better to listen to music that praises our Beloved Heavenly Father.

How can you be self controlled if you have no control over your mind? When you watch this trash that passes for entertainment on TV and in the movies, it will draw you into that lifestyle like a alluring siren tried to lure that ship to destruction in a Greek mythology tale of Jason and the Argonauts .

Is it not better to mediate on the Bible and a relationship with Jehovah? Why not watch programs that are Christian like on Dove Channel or purflix.

How can your mind be focused on Jehovah while being clouded with the filth of the world?

Personally, many times I find satan filling my mind with drawing it away from talking with Jehovah with stupid things like thinking about what to have for a meal or what the weather is. He will do anything to interfere with our loving conversation with our cherished Heavenly Father. This is why we need to practice concentrating and being close with Jehovah so when satan tries this we just tell him to shove off. Do not think he will leave, he will be a pest all through out your prayer time. This is good because it shows you are getting close with Jehovah which is what satan hates the most.

The only way for our communication to be clear, reasonable, specific and pleasing to Jehovah is if we are using the language in which He speaks. If He does not speak the devils language why do you think He would listen to yours? Joseph a son of Jehovah

 Prayer: Please Jehovah El Shama (God who hears) bless me to always speak Your language not just to You but to those I come in contact with every day. I sincerely request this in the name of He who speaks the most eloquently of them all Jesus Christ. Amen

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

On an Admitted

HIS INSTRUCTION

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 New Living Translation

A presumed fullness is when we brag that we are full and have no need of Jehovah. It is arrogant and is bragging. Beware. What is freely given unto you can and will be freely taken. Then you will end up with nothing. I have seen it oh so many times.

Then, there is the Christian perspective.

We empty our wants and desires for Jehovahs wants and desires. In the process we are blessed with love, purpose and spiritual treasures beyond compare. We may not be wealthy in the worlds eyes but boy are we ever rich in Jehovahs eyes.

“God is more disposed to move on an admitted emptiness than a presumed fullness.” — Tommy Tenn

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah RAB (The Lord my Nourisher) for blessing me with the most nutritious feast that is ever freely available to all seeking a fulfilling spiritual, mental and physical life. I praise You in the name of He who fills us daily with His Divine love Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with the gift of love, the gift of peace, the gift of joy. May you be blessed with numerous opportunities to share these gifts with others today.

We Should Rejoice That

God loves each of

How  also are Your thoughts to me, O God! Psalm 139:17 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Imagine that, the God of the universe has constant thoughts of how precious we are to Him.

He is not like some fairy tale santa claus who will only bring us gifts if we are nice (which is like bribery) once a year. Gifts we will soon grow bored with a forget them.

Jehovahs thoughts are how much He loves us. Because He loves us so tremendously He only wants what is best for us. It is therefore in our best interests to be obedient to His guidance. We should rejoice that we have such an amazing loving God.  

Rejoice in the Lord always [delight, take pleasure in Him] Philippians 4:4 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) for always providing just the right amount for me. Not too much so I become a lazy, arrogant glutton. Not too little that I undertake disastrous endeavours. The added benefit of this is that by depending upon You I see Your loving gracious hand in my life that would not be possible any other way. This fills me with awe, love, respect and admiration for You. I praise You in the name of He whose blood made this Heavenly relationship possible Jesus Christ. Amen

Christ blesses us with love, peace and joy. May you be blessed with many opportunities to share these with others today.
