The Trail Blessings.

thank you

 

 Today I have received numerous blessings on the daily hike.

The first one was beautiful weather to go for a long hike.

Instead of going one of the normal routes the Lord directed me to a different route. While walking along the asphalt walkway there was a saying spray painted upon the pavement that was eye catching. It was photographed to be used later for this blog.

Then , the Lord guided me to a small trail up a hill. On top of the hill there was a view of the raised gardens built by some of my detractors that laughed at the design the Lord instilled upon me to build for our raised garden. Upon inspecting it, it was discovered to be all falling apart (while the Lords design is still as good as new. Both were built at the same time).

I then returned to the main trail and continued on my way.    

A short while later the Lord guided me to take a little side street. At the end of that side street, there was another side street. At the end of that side street was a trail. The trail was oh so beautiful with quaint little bridges along petite creeks. It was so beautiful. I had walked this route numerous times and never saw this trail.

As the walk continued along the main route which took me into a bush. At one point there is a resting place beside a quiet little rapids where I usually rest. The Lord opened my eyes to a little trail I never noticed before. There, along the trail was a pile of discarded patio stones in mint condition that can be used for the flower garden which will be retrieved in the spring. I know the owner of the land and he has previously informed me any treasures found back there were mine if I wanted them (that is where some of the materials to build the Lords raised garden came from). Finally, on the other side of the creek is a pile of pressure treated lumber that has been thrown out that, again, can be used in the spring for garden projects.

I find it amazing just what folks throw out.

It is funny when others ask me where I got the building material and they are informed. They think Ia am crazy but I believe in using everything to its most potential.

Jehovah supplies our tomorrows in ways as unusual as He does our todays. It causes us to marvel at Him all the more. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh (God my provider) for blessing me with numerous provisions today that will be used for future projects that I know You have in store for me to accomplish in conjunction with the Holy Spirit, this spring. You constantly amaze me my Love. I praise You in the name of He who fed the four thousand Jesus Christ. Amen

Whatever is beautiful, whatever is meaningful, whatever brings you joy, may you be blessed with an abundance of it this every day this year.

The Korean and the Japanese.

GENTLE STREAM WINDING THROUGH FOREST

Prayers Answered.

These articles are dedicated to the wonderful and amazing way Jehovah Jireh (the Lord our provider) answers prayers. It is a simple journal that I would like to use as an example for others to list their sincere prayer requests and then how our Beloved answers them.

It will amaze you and create a heart of gratitude and respect for our gracious Jehovah Heseh (Our God of love).

The older women likewise, that they be reverent in behavior, not slanderers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things. Titus 2:3New King James Version                                                                                      

I prayed for my precious little Japanese sister to be blessed with a good mentor to help her through her difficult times of being recently unemployed.                                                 

When she attended her friends church the pastor invited her to her apartment for a meal (in Asia being asked to share a meal is very important and is only for close family and friends so this was unexpected). During the meal my Japanese little sister and the pastor talked for hours and the Korean pastor gave her wise advice and great encouragement.                                                          

It is our Christian duty to be mentors to those who are not as mature in the walk with Christ. We are to lead by example and to help those struggling overcome their difficulties.

Who are you mentoring?                                                                                                             

Editors note: In Asia when there is a large age difference the older is called grandfather or grandmother. If the age difference is not large they are called uncle or auntie. If the age difference is close it is big brother or big sister.   

                                                    

My precious little Christian sister is close to my age but younger so I address her as little sister while she addresses me as big brother.                                                                     

Wouldn’t it be nice if that is the way we in the west addressed each other?                        

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rohi (God is our Sheppard) for guiding a younger sheep to an older,  sheep in Your precious flock to guide her, encourage her and strengthen her. I extol You in the name of the most admirable Sheppard of all Jesus Christ. Amen.        

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