My Gimme List.

RICHES OF THE HEART

It seems like the majority of folks today are like spoiled babies always crying gimme, gimme, gimme. It does not matter if the are young or old, man or woman (and as much as the lie berals like to pollute Gods design, that is the only two sexes there is naturally). It does not matter if the are rich or poor or what ethnically they are.

Yet, in this deafening screeching is the sound of silence of gratitude and service.

What can I offer the Lord for all he has done for me? Psalm 116:12 Holy Bible New Living Translation

Here is my gimme list

Please my Love gimme a grateful heart to thank you for all of your blessing both great and small every day.

Please my Love gimme eyes to see the subtle blessing You abundantly shower upon me every day so I can praise You more and more every day.

Please my Love, bless me with a heart that expands its love for You more and more every day.

Please my Love, gimme a mind and body that is submissive to Your will in my life every day.

Please my Love, gimme a forgiving heart to those who have offended me just as You forgive me when I repent.

Please my Love, open my eyes unto the needy not the lazy and ungrateful but rather those who are in genuine need and are appreciative of the help given.

Please my Love guide me where to invest Your tenth of my salary to You where it will do the most good for Your kingdom.

All of these are a gift of thanksgiving for my salvation and adoption into my Loving Heavenly Fathers family.

I will offer you a sacrifice of thanksgiving Psalm 116:17 Holy Bible New Living Translation

Can you think of any other gimmes that should be on this list?

A Christian always has two open hands. One to receive the blessing of our Beloved Poppa in Heaven and the other to share those gifts with others. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah Abba (God our Poppa) guide me to give back unto You as You have abundantly give unto me. I know I can never even match You much less surpass You but I would sure like to try. I sincerely ask this in the name of He who gave me the greatest blessing of all, an open door directly to You, 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.

The Perfect Day Planner

JESUS' GUIDANCE

You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed. Psalm 139:16 Holy Bible New Living Translation

The first and most important decision I make every morning is to humbly request that Jehovah guide my every thought word and deed during the day.

I have found out, the hard way, going my own way only leads to emptiness, meaningless life and many times disaster. Submitting unto our Heavenly King Jesus is difficult but the rewards are Heavenly. There is constant companionship with Him, the Holy Spirit to guide me, angels to protect me and a Heavenly home waiting for me at this physical bodies end.

There are only two ways of doing things Your way which leads to disaster or Jehovahs way which leads to success. Choose wisely, your eternity depends upon it. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Ori (Psalms 27:1) – The LORD My Light for blessing me with Your brilliant light, the Holy Spirit, to guide me along every step of the day. Thank you that You, Jesus and the Holy Spirit are always there ready to abundantly supply me with the guidance to make the right decisions. Thank You for blessing me with angels to protect me, especially when I am a dough head and make stupid moves. I praise You in the name of my Heavenly Sheppard, 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.

We Must be Willing To.

HE IS THE BOSS

 So submit to [the authority of] God. James 4:7 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

I surrender all to Jesus. All of my life, finances, dreams, will and love to Him and to Him alone. That does not mean we cannot love anyone else but rather Jesus is always top dog in our life.

But as for me, I trust [confidently] in You and Your greatness, O Lord; I said, “You are my God.” Psalms 31:14 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

I have trusted financial advisors and alls I got was an empty pockets as they ripped me off and got most of my money. I trusted doctors when sick and only got sicker. I trusted lovers and friends only to be betrayed and abused.

I have trusted Christ with my life and He has never disappointed me.

No, I do not believe we can ever completely trust Him. We are too weak to do that. But that is okay, as long as we surrender our will to Him, He will expand our trust, obedience, respect and love for Him.

“Christianity can never come to us as a bargain; it can never be had at wholesale price. We must be willing to pay the full price of surrender and trust.” — William L. Krutza

Prayer: This modest servant of Yours surrenders all unto You my cherished Jehovah Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever) knowing that it is trusted in the hands of the wisest, most loving,supreme sovereignty of all. I make this pledge in the name of my loving King Jesus Christ. Amen.

The gift of love, the gift of joy, the gift of peace, these are the greatest gifts that can be given. They are given in abundance to all those in Christs family by our Heavenly loving  Father. May you be blessed with plentiful opportunities to share these with those around you today.

Not Until We Have Become Humble and Teachable

follow your ways

 The [reverent] fear of the Lord is the beginning (the prerequisite, the absolute essential, the alphabet) of wisdom; A good understanding and a teachable heart are possessed by all those who do the will of the Lord; His praise endures forever. Psalm 111:10 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

To fear the Lord in this context means to respect Him.

There have been so many times in my life when I see someone new at a job doing something wrong or doing it in a difficult way. I try to teach them the correct way or an easier way and they look at me with contempt like they know so much more than me. That is very rude arrogant and disrespectful. The end result for them is of course disastrous.

So too it is with us.

When the Holy Spirit tries to teach us a better way at life and we arrogantly contemptuously ignore Him and do the exact opposite, not only is the result disastrous but it is arrogant and disrespectful towards Him. Not only must we listen to Jehovah when He speaks to us but we are to be obedient as well. We must admit and submit to His supreme intelligence over our feeble minuscule understanding. Otherwise, what is the sense of Him speaking with us?

“Not until we have become humble and teachable, standing in awe of God’s holiness and sovereignty…acknowledging our own littleness, distrusting our own thoughts, and willing to have our minds turned upside down, can divine wisdom become ours.” — J. I. Packer

Prayer: Please Jehovah Kal El (voice of God) bless me to always listen, understand and obey Your voice because I know You only want what is best for me because You love me and care about me. I sincerely request this in the name of He who always listened to His Heavenly Fathers voice Jesus Christ. AMEN

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

Commit Your Works

Christ, WILL LEAD

Commit your works to the Lord [submit and trust them to Him], And your plans will succeed [if you respond to His will and guidance].Proverbs 16:3 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Most times I have attempted to accomplish anything on my own it always failed miserably.

When I submitted my plans to Jehovah, He may have suggested not to attempt them.

Being stubborn and independent I refused to listen to Him and the end result was always a disaster. Many times I have submitted my plans to Jehovah and He graciously suggested tweaks to them. I felt insulted and refused to listen to Him. The end result was complete failure.

It took many decades to learn to take every plan to Him and be obedient unto His guidance, no matter how weird or unconventional they were, which has led to successes like I never could have dreamed possible.

If you wish for success in life, first take your plans to He who is the best Guidance Councillor, Jehovah. Then listen and obey Him. This is the sure fire recipe for success in life. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you El-Deah God of knowledge for blessing me with Your infinite knowledge of the best course of action to take in every aspect of my life. It prevents a lot of disaster and guarantees success. I praise You for this cherished treasure in the name of the wisest Teacher of all Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Let Them Not Rule.

 Also keep back Your servant from presumptuous (deliberate, willful) sins;
Let them not rule
and have control over me. Psalm 19:13 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

There are certain inherited sins in us all as well are a fallen race.

The only way to conquer them is through the submission unto the all power of the Holy Spirit.

I know, that is the only way I beat alcoholism.

Have you ever seen a row between two folks and just before it comes to blows a friend steps between one of them and prevents him from getting into a fight? He does so because he knows the other man or woman will beat the snot out of his or her friend. The ringer is laughing at the sucker and egging them on to fight just for the perverted pleasure of fighting.

That is what the man in the above verse is saying.

Satan knows our weakness and will work on it and present it to us in an appealing manner. The temptation is too strong for us. That is when we need to call in the supreme Superman to save the day. His name is The Holy Spirit.

There have been numerous times the temptation was so great I thought my head was going to explode. I called out in desperation :” Come now Holy Spirit, please hurry or all is lost.” It may sound incredible but it is true, the temptation was immediately taken from me.

Satan drools when he sees foolish Christians think they are strong enough to resist him. They are the easiest prey.

That enemy of yours, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion [fiercely hungry], seeking someone to devour. 1 Peter 5:8 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Without the Holy Spirits help we all fall away from Jehovah and towards satan. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Ganan (The Lord is Our Defense) for being my defense against a wily foe who can easily destroy me without You but cannot touch me with You. I give thanks in the name of He who defeated satan on the cross and at the resurrection Jesus Christ. Amen

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

They Begin to Grow.  

You, therefore, will be perfect growing into spiritual maturity both in mind and character, actively integrating godly values into your daily life. Matthew 5:48 Holy  Bible Amplified Version

Growing into spiritual maturity and character and integrating godly values into our lives is an act of worship towards our Heavenly Beloved.

We submit unto His molding us into the children He desires us to be because we trust Him and love Him, which is an act of worship. Because we love Him we desire to be the children He wishes us to be which is another act of worship.

If there is no worship there is no desire to grow or to continue to grow.

There are times when growth is easy but it is in the times when growth is difficult that we show our trust and submissiveness unto Him that that is an act of worship which please Christ.

“It is only when men begin to worship that they begin to grow.”  Calvin Coolidge                       

 Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Kabodhi ( The Lord my Glory ) for growing into the child You desire me to be through my worshiping You the greatest super star of all. I exalt Thee in the name of my best friend whom I adore Jesus Christ. Amen

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