True Thanksgiving Means

                    

Be persistent and devoted to prayer, being alert and focused in your prayer life with an attitude of thanksgiving. Colossians 4:2 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Every morning I begin my day by thanking Jehovah for all he has done for me and through me. Every day throughout the day I praise Him for His blessings great and small. Every evening I thank His for the abundant blessings He has showered upon me throughout the day. Every day I thank His for every opportunity He has blessed me with to serve Him with even greater joy than the thanks given when He blesses me with good.

Try thanking Him every morning as soon as you wake up. Try thanking Him throughout the day for all of His blessings both great and small. Try thanking Him every evening when you go to bed for the blessings He has bestowed upon you throughout the day. Try it for a month and see how your relationship with your Heavenly Father blossoms into an amazing loving relationship which no other can compare.

“True thanksgiving means that we need to thank God for what He has done for us, and not to tell Him what we have done for Him.|” George R. Hendrick

Prayer: Oh my Beloved Jehovah Heseh (God is love) how I am filled with divine love and joy when I sing songs of gratitude unto You my love for all You have done in my life and through my life every day. I thank You in the name of the most treasured gift of all Jesus Christ. Amen.

May Gods sunshine always bless you with brightening your day with His love, joy and peace. Joseph a son of Jehovah

I Ask For.

                                                       

 They followed vanity [that is, false gods, idols] and became vain (empty-headed). 2 Kings 17:15 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

The thing I have noticed and numerous studies have confirmed is that the more material wealth you have the more paranoid you become about losing, the less detached you are from reality. The more luxury you have the more you become a slave to the scam of big business.

Take for example the latest mobile phone that comes out from a certain company every year or so. Folks are demented enough to wait in long line to pay idiotic prices for a gadget that they are only going to through away next year anyway. Their lunatic reasoning is that if they do not have the latest they are a no body. That is vanity. The gadget or latest designer clothes are like a god to them and the idolize things rather than nurture love towards others.

For where your treasure is, there your heart [your wishes, your desires; that on which your life centers] will be also. Matthew 6:21 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

I on the other hand seek the truest most valuable treasure of all.

That is: a loving relationship with Jehovah. When we commune together my heart is filled with Divine love, which nothing can compare with.

There is an old saying: what goes around, comes around.

Because I am honest I look forward to what is coming my way.

I nurture a pure heart for what matters to Jehovah and am not swayed by the foolish gibberish spewed by those who are worshiped as Gods like TV certain celebrities. As such there is a lot of peace withing my heart that is only attained by being in the right relationship with Jehovah.

“I do not ask for a life of luxury, nor for material wealth. I ask for a joyful heart, an honest heart, a pure heart. A heart after Jehovah riches” Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Pryyand- God is my friend for blessing me with the most amazing loving friend ever possible. Thank you for blessing me with spiritual blessings that are the most prized of all gifts You have showered upon me. I exalt Thee in the name of the most beautiful jewel of them all Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Ministering to the Needs Of 

                             

For God is not unjust so as to forget your work and the love which you have shown for His name in ministering to [the needs of] the saints (God’s people), as you do. Hebrews 6:10  Holy Bible Amplified Version

Someone once told me that everything we do, we do for greed. I was every offended by this. Now, in retrospect I completely agree with Him.

However, what kind of greed do you have?

For me I am extremely greedy to minister to both those in Christs Kingdom.

The reason for this greed is because I know it makes my Heavenly Father happy and I am greedy to fill His precious heart with joy by my actions and words because I love Him so extremely much.

Yes I am aware that He richly blesses those who serve with joy and eagerness in their hearts, minds and bodies for which there is deep gratitude in this child of Gods heart.

But, first and foremost is the greed to make my Heavenly Beloved joyful just because of the deep loving relationship we share and the lust for it to go ever deeper and deeper with every beat of my heart.

Heavenly wealth are those that flow from the heart towards Jehovah and our fellow man and woman. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Heseh (God is love) for blessing me with bountiful opportunities to serve You by ministering to the needs of others. It brings me ecstatic joy to please You my most Beloved. I gleefully praise You in the name of the best minister You have blessed me with Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Being Transformed Into

 

And we all, with unveiled face, continually seeing as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are progressively being transformed into His image. 2 Corinthians 3:18 Holy Bible Amplified Version

When we accept Christ as our Savior and King, He sends the Holy Spirit to transform us from being a dirty filthy rag into a new beautiful Divine creation.

This does not mean that when we accept Christ there will be a hallelujah moment and then we can continue on as we were before.

It does mean a lifetime commitment unto His will in our lives. It means allowing Him to burn off the dross (bad habits and attitudes which hinder our relationship with Him and our maturity in our Christian walk).

Speaking from experience it is not pleasant but you will praise Him for it every day after its completion. It does not mean we are to sit on our butts and expect the Holy Spirit to do all the work. It does mean a lifetime commitment to making the effort ourselves to become Holy children of God. Many times we will be expected to make the effort by ourselves as we mature because that is a process of maturity as well.

“God invites us to come as we are, not to stay as we are.”Tim Keller

Prayer: Thank you Holy Spirit M’Kaddess (The Lord is my Sanctifier) for blessing me with teaching me and helping me to grow into a sanctified child of my Beloved and to lead a life pleasing unto Him. I exalt Thee in the name of He who showed us all how to lead a sanctified life pleasing unto our loving Heavenly Father Jesus Christ. Amen

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

My Greatest Gift Ever.

                                          

 When I was a boy my grandma would give me a sweater every year for Christmas. Upon opening it there is disappointment, I wanted a toy. After putting it on however, I refused to take it off. Mom would have to fight with me almost every day because I always wanted to wear it. There was just something special about it that made it inseparable. What was unknown to me in my childhood innocence was that grandma would work on knitting that sweater every day for a month or two and what made it so special was the love she put into creating it. When the sweater was worn the love could be felt in it. It was the best gift ever to this child.

It pales in comparison  however to the greatest gift that is given to everyone free of charge. That gifts name is Jesus.

Jehovah loved us so much He allowed His most loved son to lower Himself to our level just so He would teach us about Jehovah and how to nurture a loving obedient relationship with Him. That was my greatest gift ever given to me by the most loving Father. I thank Him ever so deeply for this cherished gift ever day.

Jehovah loved us so much that even though it ripped His tender heart apart He allowed His beloved son to suffer and die for our sins so that we have the opportunity to become His children. That was my greatest gift ever given to me by my best friend Jesus Christ.

I thank Him ever so deeply for this cherished gift ever day. Jesus loved us so much He left His perfect loving home in Heaven to lower Himself to our level to teach us about our Beloved Father in Heaven. He loved us so much He suffered the most horrible death just so we have the most wonderful gift of all, becoming a child of Jehovah. That was my greatest gift ever given to me by my Savior Jesus Christ. I thank Him ever so deeply for this cherished gift ever day.

“For God so [greatly] loved and dearly prized the world, that He [even] gave His[One and] only begotten Son, so that whoever believes and trusts in Him [as Savior] shall not perish, but have eternal life. John 3:16 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Children, this gift is available free to all who are willing to accept it. When you do, you enter into the most fabulous loving relationship there ever was, is and will be.

If you are a child of His, be respectful and thank your Heavenly Father Jehovah and your best friend and Savior Jesus Christ for this most treasured gift every day.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah for blessing me with allowing Your precious Son to become Jesus Christ Go’el (The Lord is my Redeemer) and thank you Jesus for willingly committing Your selfless act of becoming my Holy Redeemer. I praise You in You amazing name. Amen.

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

Blessed is Any Weight

                                                  

Cast your burden on the Lord [release it] and He will sustain and uphold you;
He will never allow the righteous to be shaken (slip, fall, fail). Psalm 55:22
Holy Bible, Amplified Version

“Blessed is any weight, however overwhelming, which God has been so good as to fasten with His own hand upon our shoulders.” — F. W.Faber

Now why in the world wold any weight be considered a blessing?

How many folks forget all about Jehovah during the good times but go a running to Him during the bad ones?

I believe the weight that endures over a sustained amount of time is the best.

The reason?

Those who are shallow in their relationship with Christ will quickly fall away when they do not receive instant relief. They will go to worldly councilors which is little if any use to them. They will cry out to their government to save them and the government shall be unable to assist them.

Some trust in chariots and some in horses, But we will remember and trust in the name of the Lord our God. They have bowed down and fallen, But we have risen and stood upright. Psalm 20: 7-8 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

Those whose hearts are open to Jehovah will experience the blessing of His hand in their experience and their faith (which means trust) will grow. So too, will their respect, love and admiration towards our loving Father in Heaven.

It is in our hard times that we grow the most and come the closest unto Jehovah. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Uzam (The Lord is our Strength in Trouble) for blessing me with the strength to continue on through the trial and tribulations, sorrows and snares that come my way. Thank you that You walk through them with me. I praise You in the name of the greatest source of strength of all Jesus Christ. Amen

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

May Not Profit By.

                                     

 And not only this, but [with joy] let us exult in our sufferings and rejoice in our hardships, knowing that hardship (distress, pressure, trouble) produces patient endurance. Romans 5:3 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

When we suffer in the body our spirits grow. It is only by suffering that growth takes place. It is not pleasant while it is occurring but when we surrender our wills to Jehovah He will use these experiences to mold us into the children He desires us to be.

In reflecting back upon them we will joyously sing praises unto Him.

And, of course, the most precious profit of it all it that it will draw us into a closer loving relationship with our Beloved Father in Heaven because of them which could be accomplished in no other manner. I know it certainly has been true in every step of progress in my life.

“There is nothing the body suffers the soul may not profit by.” — George Meredith

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah M’Kaddesh (The Lord is my Sanctifier) for blessing me with sanctifying me through many trials and tribulations. These were needed to burn off the dross and to make me pliable in the hands of the Divine molder of this clay vessel. I exalt Thee in the name of the greatest potter of all Jesus Christ. Amen.

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