To Give Them A

 My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life. John 10:10 The Holy Bible New Living Translation

I remember an ad that said to be all that you can be.

The only way to accomplish this is by submitting to Christ’s will in our lives not our own.

Yes we will be wealthy but it is a spiritual wealth that can never be taken from us and that is the greatest wealth of all.

GOD PROVIDES

Yes we will live a satisfying life. That does not mean a luxurious life but rather we are grateful and satisfied with the daily blessings Jehovah daily blesses us with. Yes there will be hard times and times of suffering walking with Christ but we have Him by our side walking through it with us and that is all we need. The world does not have this blessing so their suffering is so much more intensified.

We all go through hard times but those in Christ have Christ walking through it with them. Joseph a son of JehovahGOD IS IN THE FURNACE WITH US

PRAYER: Thank you Jehovah Shammah (Ezekiel 48:35) The LORD Is There for always being there with me me through the raging storms and through the meadows of flowers. Most of all, I thank you that You will be there to greet me to the eternal home You have prepared for me. I praise You in the name of my best friend I eagerly desire to walk through eternity with 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

I am Rich, I am Poor

CHRIST IN ME

 But that is the time to be careful! Beware that in your plenty you do not forget the Lord your God and disobey his commands, regulations, and decrees that I am giving you today. Deuteronomy 8:11 New Living Translation Bible

I am rich, I am poor.

That pretty much sums up my life.

When the times were materially good my spiritual relationship with Jehovah was as cool as a corpse. The funny thing is though that even though I was living a life of comfort and ease there was something missing. I could not put my finger on it.

Then, when the good times came to an end and the material hard times came I found I was close to Jehovah spiritually.

From a lot of experience I greatly prefer the spiritual wealth over the material ones.

There is a saying that when the times are good the church is empty but when the times are hard the church is full.

Why wait for the hard times when you can be blessed with a daily close loving obedient relationship with Jehovah. Then when the hard times come, they are not so hard because of your closeness with Jehovah.

When we arrogantly turn our back on Jehovahs commands, decrees and regulations we pay a very severe price for it. Just read the history books of any country to confirm it.

I have found that this verse is oh so very true to be blessed with a contented, grateful life:

Give me neither poverty nor riches! Give me just enough to satisfy my needs. Proverbs 30:8 New Living Translation Bible

“We can stand affliction better than we can prosperity, for in prosperity we forget God.” Dwight L. Moody

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El SIMCHAH GIYL (God my Exceeding Joy) for the most wonderful of gifts and that is the never ending joy that comes from nurturing an eternal loving relationship with You. I revere You in the name of He who brings me ecstatic joy when in His wonderful presence Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with peace and joy every day.

You Will Never Get it Back.

                                          

 So then, while we [as individual believers] have the opportunity.Galatians 6:10 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

One of the greatest regrets in life is the missed opportunities to help others. It was times when I intentionally turned my back on the opportunity. Afterwards the devil laid a guilt trip on me by trying to tell me Jehovah was ashamed of me. That is not true but He was disappointed.

True, He will present many other opportunities and regret is for the soul or souls I did not help. There is shame even though He forgives me. 

The other regret is for the soul or souls I did not help. There is shame in the heart.

“If you lose an Opportunity you will be like one who lets the bird fly away; you will never get it back.” — John of the Cross

Do not dwell on your failure to do good when the opportunity arises but pray the Holy Spirit blesses you with being attentive to the opportunities and to bless you with the fortitude to obey Jehovahs nudging to do good. It is hard at first but once you make a habit out of it it becomes easier and your life is filled with a lot of joy.

Prayer: All glory to You my Beloved Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) for Your favour of blessing me with bountiful opportunities to do good unto others so as to help them and to glorify Thy most Holy name. The added benefit is the expansion of spiritual wealth that multiplies with each act of goodness unto others. I exalt Thee in the name of He whose gift of His sacrifice blessed me with adoption into Your Holy family Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

To Me To Prosper Is Not

FOLLOW HIM

For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you.  And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart. Jeremiah 29:11-13 New King James Version

 

To me  to prosper is not to gain material wealth but rather to grow in the spiritual wealth in Jesus’ precious love.

 

Material wealth comes and goes like a summer rain.  Joseph- Anthony: Green

As well it is like a sprinkle on the parched land.

It feels good while the sprinkle is happening, but when the sprinkle ends the land cries for more.

 

So too it is with material wealth.

Yes you feel happy when you have all the newest toys but quickly grow bored of them and then yearn for something more.

Material wealth is like being addicted to heroin. At first just a little will do but you quickly need more and stronger until it destroys you.

I am blessed with a spiritual love affair with Christ and my life is filled with peace, joy, and contentment (the gifts of the love of the Holy Spirit).

Comparing material wealth to spiritual wealth is like comparing a bowl of rice to a smorgasbord of fresh fruit and vegetables prepared by a talented chef.

Prayer: Oh my beloved Jesus, You are so wonderful Please bless me with the life giving refreshing waters of Your Spirit. As a tree’s roots receives nourishment from the soil, thank you for blessing me with the blessing of Your spirit in my life. I gratefully thank You in the name of he whose blood has made this precious gift possible Jesus Christ. Amen.

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