A Morning Prayer

A PRAYING MAN

Here is a beautiful morning prayer to start your day:

Please my Father open my mind to Your truth.

Bless the beat of my heart to beat to the rythym of love.

Inspire my soul to live with courage.

Bless me with numerous opportunities to serve You both big or small.

Please forgive me for my filthy sins which pierce Your heart. Mould me to the holy child You desire me to be. Please guide my every footstep to follow the path You have chosen for me to travel.

I humbly request this in the name of my Heavenly King I deeply desire to emulate Jesus Christ. Amen Anonymous

May the light of Christs love shine brightly in your heart today and every day Joseph a son of Jehovah

You can Make

 You can make many plans,   but the Lords purpose will prevail. Proverbs 19:21 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation  

Boy do I know this to be true.

In my early twenties I planned on living in a log cabin by a spring fed spring with great trout fishing in central Ontario on two acres of forested land. Events occurred where Jehovah had other plans for me and all those dreams faded like the morning fog on a hot day.

When doing medical missionary work in the Baja Mexico I met a Mexican woman and we fell in love. We intended upon getting married and buying a small house in the little town we were living in. Events occurred where Jehovah had other plans for me and all those dreams faded like the morning fog on a hot day.

While attending a Chinese church while doing missionary work (even though I was teaching English I was also teaching about Jesus to my students) I met a wonderful Christian Chinese woman. We fell in love. I intended upon becoming a landed immigrant and we were going to get married and buy an apartment (they do not have houses but apartments for the most part in China). Events occurred where Jehovah had other plans for me and all those dreams faded like the morning fog on a hot day. The same thing happened in two different cites I taught at.

Each of these events ripped my heart apart as my dreams vanished like waking from a dream. I felt crushed and as if my life was over. I was angry at Jehovah for allowing this.

Now, in my elder years, I can see His plans for me were very different than mine were.

Yes I still love those women and have fond memories of those times but am grateful for Jehovah for the plans He had for me. I firmly believe I shall meet those women I loved so dearly in Heavens home. If those events had of come to fruition I would never have served Him in the capacity He had intended and accomplished the tasks He had prepared for me to accomplish for Him. Because of this many would not have come to Jesus. I am grateful for this blessing He gave me through my obedience to Him.

We make our plans but Jehovah guides the way (even if it is in the opposite direction then we intend to go). Joseph a son of Jehovah

PATH

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireth (Genesis 22:14) – The LORD Shall Provide for always providing providence in my life to humble, loyally serve You. This is the greatest of honours of all. I thank you in the name of my Heavenly King which is my greatest delight to serve, 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

In Such a Way That .

CHRIST FIRST, OTHERS SECOND

 Focusing our eyes on Jesus, who is the Author and Perfecter of faith [the first incentive for our belief and the One who brings our faith to maturity], who for the joy [of accomplishing the goal] set before Him endured the cross, disregarding the shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God [revealing His deity, His authority, and the completion of His work]. Hebrews 12:2 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Jesus demonstrated His love for us at a high cost. Knowing and understanding this should create an awe and deep love for Him. Yes we are to exhibit towards Him by understanding, however He requires that we pass along His style of love towards others as an act of worship towards Him.

Love is an action not an emotion. Joseph a son of Jehovah

We accomplish this in our attitude towards others by not being arrogant nor abusive towards them but rather by being caring and respectful.

We serve Jehovah by serving with in our community. We need not be a missionary in some foreign land when there are ample opportunities all around us every day.

Of course we require knowledge of how to serve, when to serve and where to serve. Doing this on our own will only lead to disaster. We need the supreme teacher to instruct us in the way to accomplish the deeds Jehovah has prepared for us to do.

Now there is no sense in teaching someone to fish if they will never us those skills or go fishing in the first place. When the Holy Spirit enlightens us we are to be obedient and put into practice that which He has indoctrinated into us.

“The knowledge of Christ’s love for us should cause us to love Him in such a way that it is demonstrated in our attitude, conduct, and commitment to serve God. Spiritual maturity is marked by spiritual knowledge being put into action.” Edward Bedore

Prayer:I humbly ask of You Holy Spirit my master teacher to constantly instill in this child of the most Divine Love appropriate words, actions and thoughts of love which will exhibit my appreciation for such and wonderful gift He has blessed me with. I sincerely request this in the name of He who showed us Your Divine love 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

Who Are You Serving?

DEVINE YOKE

“No servant can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.”” Luke 16:13 New King James Version

 

I revel in the knowledge that I serve the Supreme King and am His servant.

Just as Jesus is spiritual, so too is obedience and servanthood to Him.

We think not how to serve Him materially but spiritually.  Now we serve Him in the material world but our purpose is not material but spiritual service.

Because I love my Master I love to serve Him.

A bonus is that the more we serve Him, the more He reveals Himself to and the deeper our loving relationship drinks from His sweet life giving waters.

On the other hand I find materialistic pleasures repugnant and extremely boring. They cannot even begin to compare with the spiritual.

Tied to the value of the person is the principle of servanthood. We value what we freely serve.” Douglas Groothuis

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Yehew (God of His people) for blessing me with accepting me as Your child in a divine loving relationship. I exalt You in the name of the King of whom I am so deeply in love with and honoured to serve Jesus Christ. Amen.                                                                                                             

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

How Is Your Footsteps?

I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you. John 13:15 New International Version

 

COMPLETE DEDITACATION

Whether you want to admit it or not, when you are a Christian your actions and words give an example to the world and new believers. You are Christs ambassador.

 

What kind of example are you setting for the world to see?

 

Do you follow in Christs footsteps with your family? How much time do you spend reading the Bible with Your family? Do you say grace before meals? Do you teach your children to say good night prayers? What kind of entertainment do you watch on TV or movies? What kind of music do you listen to?

 

Do you follow in Christs footsteps at school or work? When you see a classmate or co-worker struggling with an assignment, do you go over and help them?  Do you participate with the filthy gossip about classmates or co-workers or do you walk away (for me, whenever they try this I just ask them what they say about me when I am not there, they shut up fast)? Do you welcome new students or co-workers?

 

Do you follow in Christs footsteps in how you spend your time? Do you prefer to be with swearing boozing buddies rather than Christians? How much time do you spend in serving your community?

 

Do you prefer to stay home to watch a sports program rather than go to church?

 

If you are a true Christian, should you not walk in the masters footsteps?

 

Prayer: Please Jesus Pryyand (Jesus my friend) bless me with the wisdom, grace and opportunities to walk in the Masters footsteps.    I humbly request this in Your majestic name. Amen.

 

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