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

He is Instantly Free.

HIS INSTRUCTION

 Blessed (happy, fortunate, to be envied) are the undefiled (the upright, truly sincere, and blameless) in the way [of the revealed will of God], who walk (order their conduct and conversation) in the law of the Lord (the whole of God‘s revealed will). Psalm 119:1 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

When I was a teenager I was driven crazy by my peers. One would be telling me to do this with my life, another would be telling me to do that with my life. There was so many voices I did not know what to do.

It was years later that Jehovah slowly began to reveal His intentions in my life. He did not reveal the whole plan to me, I think that is because I would not have believed it anyway. He took it one step at a time. When the first step was matured then the next was taken. Sometimes the steps were quick, sometimes they were slow.

Over the course of forty years it has been awesome what He has accomplished in me using this method.

I am sure He still has intentions for furthering my maturity and service unto Him.

Now I am free from the confusing and demanding direction given to me by others because of the knowledge that I am guided by the best Guidance Councillor there is.

“Let a man set his heart only on doing the will of God and he is instantly free. No one can hinder him.” — A. W. Tozer

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El-Deah (God of knowledge) for blessing me that when I set my mind, body and spirit on doing Your will, I am not tossed about like a ship in a raging storm not knowing where to go or what to do to please those in the world. Thank you for blessing me with Your bright light to shine the path of life to take. I exalt You in the name of the light of the world Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Love is to Be

                           

Love is to be sincere and active. Romans 12:9 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

I believe we are to be concerned with helping others whenever we have the opportunity.

We need to depend upon the Holy Spirit’s guidance to what we can do and how.

Now that does not mean we are to waste our valuable time and resources on those who make no effort to help themselves. They are just leeches of society.

As well, we must understand there is only so much we can do.

“Love is not affectionate feeling, but a steady wish for the loved person’s ultimate good as far as it can be obtained.” — C. S. Lewis

Prayer: All laudation unto You my Beloved Jehovah Heseh (God is love) for the unlimited love You lavishly bless me with every day. I pray my precious one that You provide me with ample opportunities to share Your love through my words and actions every day.

Please advice me where the best place is to exalt Your love through my words and actions so as to plant bountiful seeds unto Your most Holy Kingdom.

I meekly request this in the name of my loving King Jesus Christ. Amen

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

By What Actions do We

 

                                                   

Love is to be sincere and active. Romans 12:9 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

I have met far too many phonies. As long as they can milk you for money, work for free or for services (like getting a free ride to work), you can walk on water but the minute you ask them for help, you are a stranger to them. If you ask them to contribute you are a greedy, selfish s.o.b. Unfortunately this is the norm of today.

But, we as Christians are not to be normal by the worlds standards but rather we are to be normal by Christ’s standards.

We are to follow the Holy Spirits guidance on where we can share our love for Christ by being loving unto others through service.

Yes, many times this will involve sacrifice whether it be time, money or energy.

Yes many times it will involve enduring harsh hardships, sacrificing yourself for Christ in sacrificing yourself for others.

But, ultimately ,it is an act of worship and love towards our Heavenly Beloved Father who has sacrificed so much for us and for our Heavenly King who sacrificed Himself for us.

Indeed, God showed His love for us by the action of Christs sacrifice. By what actions do we show our love for God? Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Oh please Jehovah-‘Ori (the Lord is my Light) shine Your Divine light on where You want me to go and what You desire for me to do to shine Your glaring light of love unto a cold dark world.

I humbly beseech Thee this in the name of He who is the brightest light of the world 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

You do so at Your Own Risk.

                                    

He who turns his ear away from listening to the law [of God and man], Even his prayer is repulsive [to God]. Proverbs 28:9 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Have you ever felt Jehovah was speaking to you about something in your life and then you ignore Him?

You do so at your own risk.

When Jehovah speaks with us about something that requires attention it is for our own good.

If you ignore His advice you with eventually suffer the consequences for it. Then when you go cry babying unto Him, He will ignore your prayers. They smell like a bad fart to Him. He is disgusted with you because you refuse to listen to Him.

Now when you finally smarten up and obey Him, He forgives you.

It is always difficult to obey Him especially when it is something deep seated in our minds.

Many times it will take good Christian counselling to even get to admit we have the problem.

Once we accept the problem then it is up to us to try to resolve it. We can get all the counselling in the world but if we do nothing to try to resolve it, the counselling is useless.

Sometimes the problem is too big for us to handle.

That is when we go unto the Holy Spirit and sincerely, respectfully ask for His help. Then and only then will the issue be resolved.

I have gone through both sides of it and can tell you it is very difficult but rewarding.

One of them for example was independence, which most of us suffer from. It took many years before that was finally destroyed and expelled from my mind and heart. Sometimes it took my own effort, sometimes it took the assistance from the Holy Spirit. I rejoice over that every day.

“When God turns away from us because of selfishness, it is not rejection. Rather, it is an invitation to follow Him to a place we would rather not go.” — Brennan Manning

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emet (God of truth) for gracefully educating me about the ruinous dispositions with in my soul. Thank you for the assistance You overwhelmingly provide me with to conquer these weaknesses. I exalt Thee in the name of He who has overcome the world 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

Revive the Heart.

GOD LOVES YOU

For thus says the High and Lofty One Who inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy:  “I dwell in the high and holy place, With him who has a contrite and humble spirit, To revive the spirit of the humble, And to revive the heart of the contrite ones. Isaiah 57:15 New King James Version

The proud are dammed to Hell, the humble will enjoy Heaven. Joseph- Anthony: Green                                                                                    

contrite: feeling or showing sorrow and remorse for a sin.

When we are sorry for a sin we have committed and make amends for our wrong we are forgiven.

Now sometimes because of the circumstances or our disposition we cannot make amends. That is when we need to sincerely pray to Jehovah to bless us with the Holy Spirits guidance and strength and disposition Then when the Holy Spirit answers us we are to be obedient.                                                     

humble :not proud : not thinking of yourself as better than other people

Sometimes we are too filled with pride because we believe we are better than the offended one and we will not lower ourselves to apologize and make things right. This attitude must be smashed and destroyed before any reconciliation can occur.

We will never be right with God until we are right with others. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Once we have been reconciled with the one we offended then we can be reconciled with Jesus. If you feel Jehovah is far from you, maybe it is because you are far from Him. He does not tolerate disobedient children but always forgives those who repent. When there is reconciliation on our behalf  then He will heal our spiritual life and revive our healthy relationship with ourselves, with others (sometimes the others will refuse to accept our overtures but that is okay, God knows and that is what is important) and with Jehovah.                        

revive: to become strong, healthy, or active again All definitions from  Merriam- Webster dictionary

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Ropheka (God our healer) for healing me from the sting of my confessed sins and for reconciling me unto You again. I am ever so deeply grateful in the name of He whose blood heals my sins Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

God Looks Down From Heaven.

FOLLOW YOUR WAYS

God looks down from heaven upon the children of men, To see if there are any who understand, who seek God. Psalms 53:2 New King James Version                                                                                                

Remember when we were children and we were taught that Santa Claus was watching to see if we were naughty or nice. Of course now we realize that is just a fairy tale.              

Jehovah on the other hand is very real and He is constantly seeking those who are looking for Him and desire to enjoy a richly blessed relationship with Him.                          

 

In order to be a member of His family we must obey His rules.                                          

That is why it takes a lifetime commitment to learning of Him and His ways and of obeying them.      

                                                                                                                   

This means a daily commitment to reading His word and be open to being obedient to what He is teaching us.

A non Bible reading Christian is not a Christian.  Joseph- Anthony: Green   

                                                                                                                       

This means a daily commitment to honest and sincere prayer with Him. 

                                                                                                                 

Prayer is just talking with the most intimate lover you can ever be blessed with. Joseph- Anthony: Green                                                                                                  

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Yahweh (God of His people) for blessing me with seeking me out and adopting me into Your sacred family. I extol You in the name of Your most cherished son Jesus Christ. Amen.

                                                                                                                          

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