He Made You Something Special

work-in-progress

 

For we are His workmanship [His own master work, a work of art], created in Christ Jesus [reborn from above—spiritually transformed, renewed, ready to be used] for good works, which God prepared [for us] beforehand [taking paths which He set], so that we would walk in them [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us]. Ephesians 2:10 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

Have you ever looked at the life of the majority of movie stars, musicians and TV stars? How many of them are all messed up on drugs and booze? How many of them are involved with sexual promiscuity? How many of their lives are all messed up? How many of them change partners more than you change the tires on your car? Have you noticed how shallow and self centred they are? Then why in the world would desire to emulate them?

The same can be said about the majority of the most popular kids in school when we see them later in life. Most have squandered their lives away on booze, drugs and failed marriages. Being older, it still amazes me when I see this.

Jehovah does not make junk. He made you something special and when you accept Christ as your Savior, He moulds you into an even more beautiful child of God. This is a lifetime endeavor. The longer we walk with Jesus and look back at how far the Holy Spirit has taken us and changed us, it is awesome and amazing.

We forfeit three fourths of ourselves to be like other people. Arthur Schopenhauer

 

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Bara (The Lord Creator) for the patience, skill and endurance to continuously mould this difficult lump of clay into a beautiful Heavenly child of Yours. I long to see Your reflection in my daily life become more and more inlaid in my character. I praise You in the name of the most beautiful 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

Change It to Me

DELIVERANCE COMES FROM THE LORD

 So we can say with confidence, “The Lord is my helper,  so I will have no fear.  What can mere people do to me?”Hebrews 13:6 Holy Bible New Living Translation.           

 Change it to me Instead of we we can say with confidence say I can say with confidence. Instead of saying what can man do to me say what can my boss do to me when I refuse to do something unethical?                                                       

What can the politically correct lie breals do to me when I stand up and speak the truth and refuse to cow tow to them?                                                           

What can the government do to me when I stand my Jesus’ solid rock when they are trying to abuse my God given rights?                                             

What can satan do to me when I stand firm and resist his temptation?

He is stronger than me but is he stronger than Jehovah? Because I am Jehovah’s child can he conquer me?

Satan is smarter than me but is he smarter than the Holy Spirit? Than because the Holy Spirit is my protector do you think satan can out con the Holy Spirit? Do you think the Holy Spirit will allow him to entrap me?    

Jehovah is the original super hero of which none can defeat. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Hoshe’ah ( The Lord Saves ) for saving me from the devil and his minions wicked schemes to destroy me. Thank you for providing the wisdom, grace and strength to defeat the wicked when they attack me. I exalt You in the name of the Warrior King whom shall one day defeat all wickedness Jesus Christ. Amen

Wishing you a house full of sunshine, hearts full of cheer and love that grows deeper each day of the year. Welsh blessing

Good Shall Come to Thee.

CHRIST'S LOVE

 God gives wisdom, knowledge, and joy to those who please him. But if a sinner becomes wealthy, God takes the wealth away and gives it to those who please him. Ecclesiastes 2:26 Holy Bible New Living Translation.

Have you ever heard the old saying:”Money comes, money goes and in the end we are still unsatisfied.” It is oh so true.

I have seen many chase the illusive dream of having enough money only to be unsatisfied and want more. It is not the money they want but what the money can buy. Money cannot buy happiness is very true.

On the other hand, those that live a Godly life which is pleasing to Jehovah are always blessed with peace, love, joy, wisdom and purpose in their lives.

I know, having lived in both worlds. Doing Jehovahs will guarantees that not only will our physical daily requirement be met but our spiritual cup shall over runneth in abundance.

“Live to please God, and He will breathe on thee His peace. Seek His glory, and He will make thy heart His home. Do His will, and thereby good shall come to thee.” — F. B. Meyer

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El Deah (God of knowledge) for blessing me with Your treasure trove of amazing knowledge. It has enriched my life beyond expectation. Please bless me with the opportunity and resources to share this precious gift with others. I humbly, gratefully request this in the name of the wisest of the wise Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with abundant joy in your heart filled with love and your life overflowing with laughter every day this year.

Yes, There are Conditions.

WE MUST LET GO

 The Lord is good to those who depend on him  to those who search for him. So it is good to wait quietly for salvation from the Lord. Lamentations 3: 25-26 The Holy Bible, New Living Translation  

Yes, there are conditions.

Many believe Jehovah freely gives His blessings to everyone.

That is a lie.

Why would He give His blessings to anyone who rejects Him?                         

Why would He give His blessings to any who abuse and or murder His cherished children?

Why would He give His blessings to those who stubbornly refuse to obey Him?  

When a woman gets pregnant today, will she give birth tomorrow?         

 Than we need to have patience and faith in our Heavenly Father that when He says He will do it, it will be done. But, it will be done in His time, in His manner, not ours.

Patience is a virtue which can only be received by the Holy Spirit to those who walk with Christ. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) for blessing me with your opening of Heavens treasure to share with us Your adoring children. Please bless me with patience as I await Your cherished gifts to me in Your way and in Your time. I exalt You in the name of the most precious gift You have shared with me 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.

Grow in Your Knowledge Of

SEEKING JEHOVAHS ADVICE

 May God give you more and more grace and peace as you grow in your knowledge of God and Jesus our Lord.                                                            

 By his divine power, God has given us everything we need for living a godly life. We have received all of this by coming to know him, the one who called us to himself by means of his marvelous glory and excellence. And because of his glory and excellence, he has given us great and precious promises. These are the promises that enable you to share his divine nature and escape the world’s corruption caused by human desires.2 Peter 1:2-4 Holy Bible New Living Translation

Christians should not care about recession nor depressions. These are every eight to ten year cycles in which there is extreme loss of property due to job loss. Having been through numerous of them it was devastating until the point was reached of having faith in our Heavenly Father as maturity in our relationship drew us ever closer by the day. Now, there is confidence in His provision which He has promised to me.

When Jehovah promises, He never breaks His promise. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Are you aware that He has made over thirty promises in the Bible.

Here are some: Exodus 14:14 Exodus 20:12 Isaiah 40:29 Isaiah 40:31 Isaiah 41:10 Isaiah 41:13 Isaiah 43:2 Isaiah 54:10 Isaiah 54:17 James 1:5 James 4:7 1 John 1:9 2 Chronicles 7:14 Deuteronomy 31:8 Jeremiah 29:11 John 3:16 John 8:36 Malachi 3:10 Mark 11:24 Joshua 1:9 Philippians 4:19 Psalm 23:4 Psalm 27:1 Psalm 34:17 Psalm 37:4 Psalm 50:15 Psalm 86:5 Proverbs 13:11 Proverbs 22:6 Revelation 3:5 Romans 8:28 Romans 10:9–10 Psalm 9:9–10 Philippians 4:6–7 Proverbs 3:5–6 James 5:14–15 Matthew 6:31–33 Psalm 103:2–5 Psalm 107:13–16 John 14:13–16 Ephesians 3:16–19 Luke 11:9–13

Now, I ask you to do eight things

One look up and copy these verses.

Two recite these verses onto an mp3 or 4.

Three listen to these verses and read these verses every day.

Four pray them back to Jehovah .

Five obey what He says to you.

Six write down when these verses come to fruition.

Seven give thanks for these blessings

Eight and, most importantly, share these with others (not just the verses but how Jehovah answered them in your personal life to make them real to those you are talking with).

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emunah (God is faithful) for being a Heavenly Father filled with integrity. Your word is law and that law is unbreakable. Thank you for sharing them with me and for the blessing of sharing them with others. May they be written upon my heart and theirs. I praise You in the name of He who fulfilled Your most important of all promises, a way to come unto You, Jesus Christ. AMEN

May love be in your life, may hope be in your heart and may peace be in your every day walk with Christ.

These Are the Two Parts of Prayer:

A PRAYING MAN

Since the first day you began to pray for understanding and to humble yourself before your God, your request has been heard in heaven. I have come in answer to your prayer. Daniel 10:12 Holy Bible, New Living Translation

These are the two parts of prayer: understanding and humbleness. In every aspect of prayer the core of it is to be for understanding. Understanding Jehovahs love for us. Understanding the proper manner which is appropriate for us to show our love for Him. Understanding His will in our life. Understanding what must be done to reconcile ourselves unto Jehovah and unto our fellow man. Understanding what must be our part in shining His light of love unto a dark world. Understanding how to protect ourselves from being sucked into that dark world.

The next part is for us to be humble. Humble means we are not to be either arrogant nor to be doormats. We are confident in who we are. Who we are is children of the most High God. As such when we approach Him it is to be done with love and respect.

There is only one time when prayer is appropriate and that is when we have a desire to be in loving communion with our Heavenly Father Jehovah, our best friend Jesus and our wise teacher, the Holy Spirit. You cannot fake it with them so why bother trying? Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: the worlds greatest wireless connection. Unknown 

 Prayer: Thank you  Jehovah Immanuel (God is with me) for the wonderful conversations we share that bring enjoyment to me through out the day, every day. I praise You in the name of He with whom I love to walk with and talk with Jesus Christ. Amen  

 May love be in your life, may hope be in your heart and may peace be in your every day walk with Christ.

A Pathway For the Work Of

 “What is more pleasing to the Lord: your burnt offerings and sacrifices or your obedience to his voice? Listen! Obedience is better than sacrifice, and submission is better than offering the fat of rams.1 Samuel 15:22 Holy Bible, New Living Translation

What an incredible path He has chosen for me to follow. My Beloved slowly transformed me from a country hick into a obedient son of His.

The path went from moving to the city from the farm (which was a huge act of faith and was terrifying to do) and learning natural medicine to planting tree’s in Gods garden (I say the earth is Gods garden and we are His caretakers). From there He had me slowing seeds for His two legged garden (that is, bringing souls into His family) in China. Next He moved me to come home and be a live in care giver to a challenging mother. None of this was conceivable when I was a child shy sick.

It was accomplished through obedience unto my Heavenly King and working in harmony with the Holy Spirit.

“Obedience, pure and simple, opens up a pathway for the work of God.” — David Stevens

Now Christ, our king may not have such challenging duties (duty is an act of love, obligation is an exchange of goods, i.e. I am obligated to work for an employer as he is obligated to pay me for that work). But, every act of worship no matter how big or small is an act of love unto our Heavenly Father Jehovah and His son our King Jesus

There is no act of love unto Christ no matter how big or small that is no great in Heaven Joseph a son of Jehovah  

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Hamelech ( Jesus my Lord King ) for the honour of being Your humble loyal obedient servant and for the numerous opportunities You present to me to serve You. I exalt You in Your majestic name. 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.

Will Cure More Sins Than

 The Lord is like a father to his children,  tender and compassionate to those who fear him. Psalm 103:13 Holy Bible, New Living Translation

You get more with the carrot than the stick. It is better to encourage someone than to tear them down and be a constant fault finder with them. I had far more success using this method as a teacher than any other.

When you are a constant fault finder, folks tend to lose ambition to improve. That makes them easy to control which is satanic.

Jehovah is very patient and compassionate (which means He is sympathetic towards our weaknesses and helps us overcome them) with us. Should we not be the same with others?

That does not mean we are to look the other way with their destructive lifestyle choices (like drugs) but are to help them (the operative word here is help. If they refuse to attempt to improve themselves than it is a waste of time trying to help them). To not hold someone accountable for their destructive lifestyles is not helping them, it is abusing them. It is abuse because we are not holding them accountable , to see the destruction in their lives and others and make not attempt to improve their lives.

To be compassionate is to help them leave that destructive lifestyle not to encourage them to continue in it. Yes, we need to be tender and compassionate but with a good dose of firmness ,when necessary, is needed in the equation as well.

“Compassion will cure more sins than condemnation.” Henry Ward Beecher

Prayer: Please Jehovah EL RACHUM (Merciful God) bless me to be merciful toward others as You are merciful unto me. I sincerely request this in the name of He whose merciful blood cleanses me of my sins Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with abundant joy in your heart filled with love and your life overflowing with laughter every day this year.

Here is the Two Part Equation

 I will search for faithful people to be my companions. Only those who are above reproach will be allowed to serve me. Psalm 101:6 The Holy Bible, the New Living Testament Version

Here is the two part equation: if we have no faith in Jehovah here, we are useless to Him here and now. The first step is to have faith in Him.

Oh so many times Jehovah calls upon us to take a step out into the known in faith in Him. It takes great faith to follow Jehovah because He sees where He is leading us while we do not. Joseph a son of Jehovah

In every advancement of my maturity in my walk with our Heavenly Beloved the above statement is exactly what happened. There was no consultation with our Heavenly King on what was going to happen, how it was going to happen, where it was going to happen or why it was going to happen. He just said go and I obediently went (not without a lot of apprehension mind you). When we first begin this journey into the unknown called faith we tightly grasp our loving Holy Spirits hands as He leads us into the unknown.

Our next step is to go in confidence.                                                                                          The further along this road He takes us the looser our grip on Him becomes as terror is replaced by excited apprehension into where He will lead us next. Our last stop of course will be at Heavens Gate where our Beloved King Jesus Christ will be waiting for us to place a crown on our heads as He declares in a loud voice for all the Heavens to hear:Well done good and faithful servant.

If you have no faith in the future, then you have no power in the present. Anonymous

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Pyyrand (Jesus my best friend) for the wonderful experience of sharing the closest of friendship with You whom I adore. It is the greatest of all privilege serving such a noble King as You. I exalt You in Your awesome name. Amen

Wishing you a house full of sunshine, hearts full of cheer and love that grows deeper each day of the year. Welsh blessing

I am Grateful That There Was Today

   

Let us come to him with thanksgiving. Let us sing psalms of praise to him. Psalm 95:2 Holy Bible, New Living Translation

  I am grateful that the Lord held off the bad storm so that I could take mom out for her birthday at a special restaurant.

I am grateful that there was two families at the restaurant whose children were very well behaved and a delight to watch and talk with (well except the baby, she could not talk ha ha).

I an grateful that the church parking lot was not an ice rink today (Sunday), mom has walking disabilities.

I am grateful that the Lord protected me as we experienced 80 mile an hour winds and none of the trees fell on our Sanctuary (the meeting place between our Heavenly Beloved and me, that is where I sleep in great peace) and there was no blizzard as predicted (it seemed to happen all around us but not in our area) .

I am grateful that the Lord guided me to a web site where adult coloring pages can be downloaded (they are downloaded and printed off for mom and for seniors at a local seniors home.

Be grateful for the simple blessings and they add up to a great big daily one. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah JIREH (God who supplies) with these wonderful gifts to share with others. I exalt You in the name of Your most wonderful gift 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

P.S. This was written during the winter and I am just getting around to publishing it now.
