Not Good Enoughs.

HE IS THE BOSS

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

Have you ever worked for the “not good enoughs”?

These are ungrateful folks that no matter how hard you try it is never good enough for them. I used to be a people pleaser. It was not that their praise was needed for my ego but that there was a genuine desire to make others happy. It was and still is devastating to try your best only to experience their gratitude by slowly slicing it apart as with a knife with their complaints on how it is not good enough.

Now, that I am a more mature Christian, I seek Jesus’ pleasure not mans. He does not make a big deal out of it but there is a gentle loving feeling in the heart when He softly whispers:” Well done My good and faithful servant.” That is more rewarding than anyone else could say or do.

Work for Christ nor man. He is much easier to work for and much more appreciative. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Hamelech ( Jesus my Lord King ) – Psalm 98:6 for blessing me with the honour of being Your obedient servant. I am filled with such wonderful joy when You esteem my dedication unto You in daily service to the King I adore. I thank you in Your majestic name. Amen

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love fill your heart today and every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Too Great to Understand

JEHOVAH lOVE AFFAIR

 May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Ephesians 3:19 Holy Bible, New Living Translation

How can this be?

I have heard the old saying that men will never understand a woman (and vise versa) which to a degree is true.

But, how can a love be so great that we cannot understand it?

That is amazing.

We have all been in loving relationships but we understood the manner of our love for each other and why we love each other. That is logical.

By our standards Jehovah has to be the most illogical being we have ever encountered. That is because His ways are so much higher than ours. That is because He loves us so much more than we can ever give back in return. That is why I deeply desire to love Him more and more every day. Not because I want more of His love but because just once I would like to love Him back almost as much as He loves me.

I believe that for every ounce of love we give Jesus, He gives us a pound more back in return. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah GELAH RAZ ( the God of the Revealer of Mysteries) for revealing the mystery of You and for the anticipation of always expanding that knowledge. I love learning more and more about You every day. I praise You for this awesome gift in the name of Your most precious gift to this world Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Be Careful of the Words You

 For you will be treated as you treat others. The standard you use in judging is the standard by which you will be judged. Matthew 7:2 Holy Bible, New Living Translation

Be careful of the words you say to someone today (especially the young ones), it may affect them the rest of their lives.

I grew up with very strong negative inputs in my life. I was constantly reminded of what a failure I was and that nothing was going to come of me. After moving away from these Negative Neliies it took me many decades to gain confidence in myself and that I was not a failure. The Holy Spirit had His work cut out with me. I like to say that I have succeeded in life in spite of those around me not because of them.

The good thing about this is that I was extremely sensitive to my children when a teacher.

No, I did not give them false beliefs like so many today that they can accomplish anything they desire and put their mind to. I did explain to them that sometimes there are things you cannot do but that does not make you a failure.

I did not puff them up when they succeeded but did praise and encourage them to expand their skills and knowledge from a sincere heart for their good.

They knew it and loved teacher for it.

I often wonder just how much I influenced their lives for good by my example.

And just remember this: what goes around, comes around. As you do unto others, so too will it be done back unto you. I have seen it oh so many times and believe me, it ain’t pretty.

“It is easier to ridicule than commend.” — Thomas Fuller

Prayer: Please Jehovah Ghmolah (The God of Recompense) put a lock on my lips when filth is about to be spewed from it and open it wide when sweet words of encouragement are about to flow from it. I deeply desire my speech to emulate Yours with whom have spoken so encouragingly to me. May I encourage others as You have me. I meekly request this in Your beautiful sons name who spoke so eloquently, like I deeply desire to, Jesus Christ. Amen

May the light of Christs love shine brightly in your heart today and every day

Love Always Involves

complete deditacation

Because we understand our fearful responsibility to the Lord 2 Corinthians 5:11 New Living Translation Bible

Yes, as Christians we have a responsibility unto Jesus. He is our King and we are to serve Him.

Fearful in this context means being respectful. That means we are not to go before the King (in other words we are not to choose the type of service we offer to Christ but must be obedient unto His calling in life). We are not to sit on our hands and do nothing either. When the King calls we are to take responsibility and move where, when and how He asks us to. We are to take responsibility and do the work He has assigned for us to do.

I will sacrifice a voluntary offering to you; I will praise your name, O Lord, for it is good. Psalm 54:6 New Living Translation Bible

Yes, as Christians we are to give sacrifices unto Jehovah. That pleases Him.

No these sacrifices are not animals nor humans.

These are sacrifices of love, joy and gratitude.

Because Jehovah has blessed us we are to share the blessing with others and not hoard it. Our offering of the one tenth of everything is a sacrifice to Jehovah. That means not just money but if growing a garden the first one tenth is to be given to Jehovah. May I suggest you talk with a local church to share with the working poor, or the elderly that are on limited pensions or those that are sick or hurt and cannot work.

After seeing the lazy ungrateful welfare bums that go to food banks and soup kitchens I refuse to donate to them. That is a waste.

Sacrifice on tenth of your time. Again, go to a church and ask where they need help. It may be cutting the lawn or visiting someone in the hospital or seniors home.

“Love always involves responsibility, and love always involves sacrifice. And we do not really love Christ unless we are prepared to face His task and to take up His Cross.” — William Barclay

Prayer: It is an honour Jesus Hamelech ( Jesus my Lord King ) to suffer my Beloved King for You as You have suffered for me. It brings greater appreciation for the sacrifice You made for me. I extol You in Your magnificent loving name. 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.

Oh what a sense of Humour.

 Then the angel of the Lord moved farther down the road and stood in a place too narrow for the donkey to get by at all.  This time when the donkey saw the angel, it lay down under Balaam. In a fit of rage Balaam beat the animal again with his staff. Then the Lord gave the donkey the ability to speak. “What have I done to you that deserves your beating me three times?” it asked Balaam. “You have made me look like a fool!” Balaam shouted. “If I had a sword with me, I would kill you!” “But I am the same donkey you have ridden all your life,” the donkey answered. “Have I ever done anything like this before?” “No,” Balaam admitted.Numbers 22:26-30 New Living Bible

Can you see the irony of it?

Here is a wise prophet arguing with a dumb ass. At the end of the argument the ass wins. Who looks stupid?

I can just see my Love in Heaven rolling in laughter.

He still shares that humour today.

About a month ago I lost a watch- pedometer. The place was ripped apart looking for it until dejected a new one was bought. Today, while washing some berries for breakfast it seemed as if the watch just jumped out of no where. I know that place was cleaned spotless and searched with a fine toothed comb. I do not believe in the wee people so it must have been Jehovah with His wonderful sense of humour.

About a month ago I purchased a small light to be used in our Tabernacle. It just disappeared after two days. Again, the place was ripped apart looking for it to no avail. So, a new one was bought. This morning while doing Bible reading in our Tabernacle the light seemed to roll into my lap out of no where. Again, I do not believe in the wee people so it must have been Jehovah at it again.

So many times He has good naturedly played little jokes on me. I just shake my head, wave my finger towards Heaven and say: “For a good God, You can sure be naughty some times.” and laugh along with Him.

Yes, our Beloved Father is playful with us from time to time just like any loving couple is. I do not know about you, but I really enjoy His humour.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Kal El (voice of God) for the times Your sweet voice brings such wonderful laughter to my life. I praise You in the name of He who delighted those around Him with His humour when He walked amongst us 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

We Must Do It for the Right Reason.

loving to each other

 Give, and it will be given to you. They will pour into your lap a good measure—pressed down, shaken together, and running over [with no space left for more]. For with the standard of measurement you use [when you do good to others], it will be measured to you in return.” Luke 6:38 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Many folks read this and use it to try to manipulate Jehovah. They foolishly believe if they give a dollar to a cause of their choosing they can demand Jehovah give them back a thousand.

First off you must pray for direction in where to give wisely and that wisdom come from Jehovah.

So say you give to a street bum that is going to use the money to buy drugs or booze. What a waste of money. The same is to be said for theses scammers that give heart jerking scenes on TV like giving to help others in poor countries when most of the money will go to a CEO who makes millions off of suckers.

On the other hand say the Holy Spirit guides you to a place where you meet someone who needs support to meet their daily needs. That is a wise use of money. And, yes that has happened to me on more than one occasion.

Secondly, we must desire to give as an act of love for others rather than love for self.

So instead of giving a little expecting Jehovah to give you a lot so you can go on a cruise it not of the right reason and will be rejected by Jehovah. Rather, when seeing an opportunity presented by The Holy Spirit to give to someone who needs help and deserves it- is appreciative of it and will use it wisely, we give with a desire to help rather that expect a reward from Jehovah.

Finally, when we give it will come natural to give praise to the Lord for the opportunity He gave you to do good.

From my experience, the Lords blessing will come upon you in an unexpected way, in an unexpected time so there is no doubt it is a gift from Him. This causes us to love Him and praise Him all the more.

We must give, but, we must do it for the right reason. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El Deah (God of knowledge) for blessing me with answering my requests (prayers) for Your wisdom in where to joyfully donate to causes in which You find worthy so as to invest the finances wisely. I praise You in the name of He who invested His blood for us to have a eternal home in Heaven Jesus Christ. Amen

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love fill your heart today and every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Shouts in the Street.

search for jesus

 This is something we all need to take heed of today.

She raises her voice in the markets; She calls out at the head of the noisy streets [where large crowds gather]; At the entrance of the city gates she speaks her words:

“How long, O naive ones [you who are easily misled], will you love being simple-minded and undiscerning? How long will scoffers [who ridicule and deride] delight in scoffing,  How long will fools [who obstinately mock truth] hate knowledge?

“If you will turn and pay attention to my rebuke, Behold, I [Wisdom] will pour out my spirit on you; I will make my words known to you.

“Because I called and you refused [to answer], I stretched out my hand and no one has paid attention [to my offer]; And you treated all my counsel as nothing And would not accept my reprimand, I also will laugh at your disaster; I will mock when your dread and panic come,

When your dread and panic come like a storm, And your disaster comes like a whirlwind, When anxiety and distress come upon you [as retribution].

“Then they will call upon me (Wisdom), but I will not answer; They will seek me eagerly but they will not find me.

Because they hated knowledge And did not choose the fear of the Lord [that is, obeying Him with reverence and awe-filled respect],
They would not accept my counsel, 
And they spurned all my rebuke.

“Therefore they shall eat of the fruit of their own [wicked] way And be satiated with [the penalty of] their own devices.

“For the turning away of the naive will kill them,

And the careless ease of [self-righteous] fools will destroy them.

(Unfortunately I have seen too much of this even in today’s society, especially amongst the liberals, homosexuals and so called intellectuals).

“But whoever listens to me (Wisdom) will live securely and in confident trust
And will be at ease, without fear 
or dread of evil.” 

(I have seen this and am living this today. It is a great comfort and instills great peace of the heart). Proverbs 1:20-33 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Ignore wisdom and pay the price in a living Hell on this earth and an eternal one in the next life. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emet (God of truth) for blessing me with Your indisputable truth. It has enlightened me to a life free from the darkness around me and the gift of walking in Your righteous light all the way to Heaven. I praise You in the name of the light of the world Jesus Christ. Amen

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.
