You are Mine.

NEVER ENDING LOVE AFFAIR

 

I have called you by name; you are mine. Isaiah 43:1 The Holy Bible New Living Translation

There are two important facts in this verse.

The first one states that Jehovah calls out to you. No one “finds Jesus” as if it were some effort on their own. Jesus comes to you. Do not be arrogant and take credit for something you did not do. Instead, be eternally grateful every day. Thank Jehovah and Jesus for coming to you, bringing you out of darkness and into their brilliant light of love.

Second: We all belong to something. Perhaps, it is a sports team or a type of music or whatever it may be, there is always something that owns our heart.

For me, Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit own my mind, body and spirit. And, I cannot think of anyone or anything that is more loving and caring than them. It is a great comfort and encouragement knowing that I belong to them.

We are adopted into the most royal family of all. That makes us sons and daughters of our Heavenly Father Jehovah. What an awesome reality. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer : Thank you Jehovah Abba (God our Father) for calling out to me from the darkness to come into Your Divine light. Thank you for adopting me into Your Holy family and for the blessing of always being able to commune with my Poppa (You), my big brother (Jesus) and my amazing Guidance Councillor (the Holy Spirit). I exalt You fro these awesome gifts in the name of my big brother 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

Even He Takes a Day Off

HIS REST

 For all who have entered into God’s rest have rested from their labors, just as God did after creating the world. Hebrews 4:10 Holy Bible, New Living Translation

Jehovah did not need to rest after completing creating the universe. Like every good father, He leads by example. So, if it was important enough for Jehovah to rest, do you not believe, it was important enough for you to rest?

As well, He gave Himself certain tasks to be completed each day of creation. When the task was completed, He rested. Do you not believe that you should allow Him to dictate how much work you are going to complete in a day rather that your boss or yourself?

Jehovah is a busy God. He is holding the universe together, helping His children and preparing a Heavenly home for us. Yet, even He takes a day off to rest (to lead by example the need for rest, not that He needs one). Joseph a son of Jehovah                     

Are we too busy to take a rest?

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Reliqua autem Deus (God of rest) for blessing me with a special day to rest. It refreshes my body, mind and spirit. I praise You in the name of He whom I love to share that day of rest with Jesus Christ. Amen

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

You Faithfully Answer.

 You faithfully answer our prayers with awesome deeds, O God our savior. You are the hope of everyone on earth, even those who sail on distant seas. Psalm 65:5 New Living Translation Bible

Prayer is the sweetest conversation freely available to all who belong in Jehovahs family. He always answers.

Many times He answers in mysterious ways that we do not understand until the proper time of revelation (He has done that with me oh so many times).

Many times while conversing with Him, He will guide to verse after verse in the Bible to make sure there is no doubt about what He is saying and blessing us with a clear vision of what His advice is.

There has been so many times when in times of extreme stress in prayer He has blessed me with peace, comfort and assurance. Far better than anything the world has to offer.

When confused about the road to travel or the action to take, He always blesses with advice in His Holy Guidebook (the Bible) on the proper course of action to take or where to go to find a Godly mentor to assist us in the proper course of action to take.

There has been so many times when exhaustion has sapped every molecule of energy from the soul and it feels like sinking into the abyss that in prayer He strengthens the spirit to explode into action with Divine strength.

Why would anyone go to anyone or anything other than the ultimate caregiver, Jehovah? They cannot even begin to compare with Him.

“Prayer wonderfully clears the vision; steadies the nerves; defines duty; stiffens the purpose; sweetens and strengthens the spirit.” — S. D. Gordon

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Pyyrand (Jesus my best friend) for the honour of always being able to talk with You. It is the one of greatest gifts You have freely abundantly given me. It is the best part of my day. I rejoice in this treasure in Your beautiful name. Amen

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

It Has Robbed Them Of

GUARD YOUR INPUT

Watch out that no poisonous root of bitterness grows up to trouble you, corrupting many. Hebrews 12:15 New Living Translation Bible

I have seen hatred and bitterness age many before their time. It has robbed them of the joy of life, it has robbed them of peace of mind. It has robbed them of contentment in life. It seems to me that bitterness is one of the biggest thief of all, yet so many worship it in their daily lives.

Bitterness always starts out small like a peppermint seed, yet if you allow it to take root it slowly chokes out all the vegetation around it.

I know some folks that have held grudge over small insignificant acts for over sixty years. It has spread to every aspect of their once vibrant life so bad that if they ever smiled it would crack their face. It is very pitiful to see. Many times the ones they are bitter towards are either dead or have moved away and know nothing of the hatred towards them. Many of the folks were big and strong but this vile disease has sucked the vitality out of their bodies as well as their minds and spirits. Now they are empty, pitiful, angry folks that have allowed this disease to destroy their lives. “

We cannot live with bitterness because it will first manifest itself in our spirit, then in our emotions, and finally in our bodies.” — Tom Drout

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rapha (God my healer) for generously applying Your Divine healing balm which purged the vileness of bitterness from my heart. I adore You in the name of He who was and is the greatest healer of them all, Jesus Christ. Amen

May Christ bless you with love, joy and peace today and every day.

Close To the Brokenhearted.

SPIRITUAL STRENGTH

The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit (contrite in heart, truly sorry for their sin). Psalms 34:18 Holy Bible Amplified Version

When you have lost a loved one through death or divorce or because they have left the nest, your heart is crushed and your heart is broken, why not take it to Jesus?

When walking amongst us did not His family divorce itself from Him and did He not experience broken heartedness when one of His loved ones died? Did He not suffer separation from our beloved Father on the cross?

I have lost many loved ones and He was there to comfort me as no one else could or would.

When you lose your job or home why not take it to Jesus?

Did He not experience homelessness? Didn’t he and His disciple sleep in the wilderness where there was bandits, scorpions and many man eating predators?

I have been homeless and living in a tent surrounded by bears. It was taking security that

I went to sleep with no concern of being attacked while sleeping

Did He not lose His job as a carpenters son (He did not go right from being a carpenters son to His ministry.)?

There have been many times when, through no fault of my own, I was released from a company (usually because they went bankrupt) that I believed I would be at for all of my working years. It was He picked me up when I felt like giving up and going out and pounding the pavement and or upgrading my skills and getting another place to work. For those of us over fifty that are considered unhirable why not ask Jesus how you can be blessed with self employment?

When you are crushed and brokenhearted because of illness, didn’t Jesus experience the pain of whipping and beating in His body and the agony of hanging on the cross? I was a sickly boy with very bad asthma and water on the knee. It was only in reading the Bible and talking with my beloved Jesus that a lot of that pain was endured and I felt His presence the closest to me.

So will He not be close to you and heal you spiritually when you experience these things (He may not heal your relationships or get your job or home back or heal your illness but will He not as a loving Savior be close to you and heal your spirit)?

Indeed may these not be viewed as a burden but rather as a blessing?

It is in our hard times that we are the closest to Jesus. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Shammah (God is present ) for Your life giving presence with me through my oh so many trials and tribulations. If You were not there I do not believe I would have lived through oh so many of them. I give thanks for this wonderful loving care through Your son who experienced everything I have and so much more Jesus Christ. Amen.

May Jehovahs sweet love envelope you today a and every day.

That Which is Not

PROVISION

“Why do you spend money for that which is not bread, And your earnings for what does not satisfy? Listen carefully to Me, and eat what is good, And let your soul delight in abundance. Isaiah 55:1-7 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Jesus is the bread of life.

Why do you waste your time and money on things that bring no lasting satisfaction to your life? Indeed, how many have gone into debt (becoming slaves to their masters, the banks, in a feeble attempt to satisfy their fleshly desires)?

We need to devour the word of Jehovah like a starving man a smorgasbord every day. It is good for our bodies, minds and spirits. Jehovah joyfully supplies this feast in abundance to all who ask of Him.

Where can you find this smorgasbord?

Why your Bible of course. It has a feast of wisdom, dainties of joy, strength for those who are weak, healing medicine for those suffering heart ache and soothing comfort for those going though rough times. It is truly the best meal you can consume every day.

Consuming a daily meal of Jehovahs word is the most nutritious and best meal of the day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah RAB (Jehovah our Nourisher ) for blessing me with the most delicious, nutritious meal there could ever be (the Bible). I love to daily gorge myself on its awesome delicacies. I thank you in the name of He who provided some of the best fancies of the meal 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.

True Faith Produces A.

action

For just as the [human] body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works [of obedience] is also dead. James 2:26 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

If you have faith in Christ prove it.

When we accept His gracious offer to be members of His family that does not mean we are to sit on our hands and await His return. We are free will servants.

As such, He has specific chores for us to do. Many times they do not make sense at the time. That is where having faith (which means trust) in our King must take place. He begins with little steps and gradually urges us on to bigger and bigger ones. This is not a one off event but rather a daily one. Have faith in Christ and be a part of an amazing journey like you could never conceive.

“True faith produces a life full of actions, not a head full of facts.” Author Unknown

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) for providing me with ample opportunities to exhibit my faith in You through the actions You guide me to take. I exalt You in the name of He who trusted You all the way to the cross, Your most beloved Son Jesus Christ. Amen

May the light of Christs love shine brightly in your heart
