Teach me to do your will, for you are my God. May your gracious Spirit lead me forward on a firm footing. Psalm 143:10 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation.
One of the most important things learned in life is that our greatest lessons are learned from our failures.
Just look up any invention and find out how many times the inventor failed before finally having success.
When we mess up we fess up and Jehovah forgives us, picks us up and tells us okay, you messed up, now learn your lesson and continue on towards you maturity in your walk towards Heaven.
If you have not learned your lesson, do not worry, Jehovah will allow it to be repeated until it is learned.
I believe failure is the greatest tool the Holy Spirit uses to teach us. Joseph a son of Jehovah
The more we learn from our failures and how the Holy Spirit guides us to success from them them more we become firmly established upon the path to Heaven the Holy Spirit is guiding us on. Joseph a son of Jehovah
That is one of the greatest crimes parents and teachers commit with children. They do not let them learn from their failures.
Prayer:Thank you Holy Spirit Rabbi (God our Teacher) for blessing me with Your wise, powerful and effective manner of teaching me. May it always help to evolve my relationship with my loving Heavenly Father, Jehovah loving big brother Jesus and You the most amazing Teacher ever closer and stronger. I give thanks and humbly ask of these blessings in the name of the best Teacher 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

“Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.” (Joshua 1:8 New International Version)
Let this always be our first move.
Before you make any decisions in life may I offer you some advice from an experienced old man?
I have heard that the Jews have a custom. Before making any decision they pray for three days first.
Let’s expand on that shall we?
Let’s pray and read the Bible for three days first.
If someone is trying the pressure tactics on you, whether it be to buy something, sign a contract or go somewhere or do something no, don’t walk away, RUN away. It is a trap!!! They are offering you sugar but really it is rubbish. When you stand your ground and REFUSE to surrender to their scams they will walk away looking for another stupid sucker.
When you take the time to read the Bible and pray it is saying to God: Okay big daddy, I know You are the smartest kid on the block. I know You love me and have promised to take care of me, so I will wait for Your divine guidance and trust Your providence.” You may not like His conclusion in the short run, but in the long run He will never let you down.
I was once offered what I thought was a jewel of a contract. The benefits alone were very generous, as was the pay. I informed them I had to wait three days and pray. While reading the Bible the reoccurring theme came up about laying snares to catch the innocent. It broke my heart, but I turned the contract down. Another teacher took the job. For three months he was always bragging about how good it was. We were green with envy. Then they sprang their trap. He was treated worse than you would a dog. He was given twice the classes they told him, had many extra duties dumped on him and had to come a running and teach class at his masters every beck and call (for no extra pay). Then he was the laughing stock of the teaching community. Now I danced with exalted joy for listening to the wise advice given by the best guidance councilor (the Holy Spirit).
Do you understand now children?
We have limited view of things. God has the WHOLE view of them.
Where are you going to go for advice? So let your first step ALWAYS be:
1) Wait. He who rushes in is a fool in a hurry for a disaster. Joseph a son of Jehovah
2) Pray: Think of praying as sharing a problem with your most trusted friend. Don’t be afraid. God loves you and wants you to pour out your heart to Him like a beautiful offering. “The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much” (James 5:16).
I call on you, my God, for you will answer me; turn your ear to me and hear my prayer. Psalms 16:7 3)
Now meditating does not mean sitting like a pretzel and contemplating your belly button lint. What it does mean is to read the word of God and to dink it in. Please do not try to gulp it down like a cheap beer. Rather take your time and sip it down like fine wine. Many times a verse will jump out at you. Write it down. Think about what it is saying. Pray for God to open your eyes to the awesome wisdom He is revealing to you.
Finally, with complete faith in God, take action. No worries, no regrets, just complete and total faith in our Holy God and His providence for us.
In the LORD I take refuge. Psalms 11:1 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation
“The thief’s purpose is to steal, kill and destroy. My purpose is to give life in all its fullness” John 10:10 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation
I would like to close by saying: good luck.” But that would be stupid. It’s not luck, it’s Gods gift to you. Take it from an old fart. It really works. I am living proof.
Faith without action is no faith at all. Joseph a son of Jehovah
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emet (God of truth) for blessing me with this recipe to avoid the schemes and scams of satans minions and to follow the true path of life that can only be given by He who is the God of truth. I praise You in the name of He who set the example of living a life of truth Jesus Christ. Amen
Whatever is beautiful, whatever is meaningful, whatever brings you joy, may you be blessed with an abundance of it this every day this year.Joseph a son of Jehovah
There are two gods in life and it is up to you to chose which one you will serve. One is self. Everything you do has a selfish motive to serve yourself. Even when it seems to others that you are serving others, in reality you are serving yourself. So for example we will say you are participating in a run for a cure for some disease. Are you running because you truly desire that cure or are you running while taking selfies to pump up your ego.
The end result of this disastrousworship is a meaningless life where the end result when you are on this planet is that you are so lonely that life is a daily torturous futile exercise.The final stage of life is an eternity in Hell, separatedfrom a loving God.
The other is Jehovah. Serving Him means you put His desires above all others. The end result of this is a loving obedient relationship with a fantastic God who loves us more than we could ever imagine. As, well, we will have a meaningful successful life that has eternal rewards.
Choose the right God to worship, your eternity depends upon it. Joseph a son of Jehovah
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Elyon (Lord Most High) for the honour of worshiping the ultimate God of which there is none to compare with. It is the sweetest of delights to spend time worshiping You in my thoughts, words and deeds. I exalt You for this supreme endowment in the name of the Supreme King of kings Jesus Christ. AmenMay the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love fill your heart today and every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah
“Sin whispers to the wicked, deep within their hearts. They have no fear of God at all. In their blind conceit, they cannot see how wicked they really are.”Psalm 36:1-2Holy Bible Amplified Version
Conceit is described in the dictionary as: an often unjustified feeling of being pleased with oneself or with one’s situation or achievements
I have met so many that are so full of themselves that it is painful to be around them for more that two minutes. They think the whole world revolves around them. They cannot say a sentence without glorifying themselves. They are the epitome of arrogance.
Of course they only live for themselves.
They lie, steal, cheat and do anything to glorify themselves and bring luxury to themselves.
This is their downfall because they are very lonely (who wants to be around a braggart?).
They are susceptible to alcohol and drug abuse. Because they drool at being with the in crowd they fall for the lies that drug and alcohol abuse is fun. Using drugs and alcohol brings short term pleasure that leads to a life time of hell. Yeah it is fun to start with but becomes addictive and you become its slave. It is a cruel master.
I have done volunteer work with addicts and the same story is repeated with every one of them. It started out as fun with their buddies but soon became addictive. In the end, it destroyed their lives. I have met many that were successful by the worlds standards (doctors, lawyers and such) that had their lives destroyed by alcohol and drugs and were homeless.
We are all one step from the gutter, that is why we need Christ to guide our steps away from it. Joseph a son of Jehovah
“Sin has a diminishing factor to it. It always gives it’s best in the beginning. It never gets better after that … it only gets worse.” — Mark Aulson
Prayer: Please Jehovah Hoshe’ah – ( The Lord Saves ) save me from the deceptive snares of addictions that destroy the body, mind and spirit. I humbly request this in the name of He who is the strongest defense against these whiles Jesus Christ. Amen.
May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day.
He is near who justifies Me; Who will contend with Me? Let us stand together. Who is My adversary? Let him come near Me. Surely the Lord God will help Me; Who is he who will condemn Me? Indeed they will all grow old like a garment; The moth will eat them up. Isaiah 50: 8:9 New King James Version
Whenever anyone challenges you whether it be from family, friends, coworkers, or people on the street as to what makes you think you have your calling that is the time to pray and depend upon God to vindicate you.
For me He has shown verses in the Bible and their meaning to me. They are written down and carried with me so that when challenged they are brought out and used in my defense.
Now one of two things will happen.
One: people will be open to what is being said and you will enjoy a good opportunity to witness.
Two: the people are not interested in what you have to say, they are more interested in being judgmental and condemning and will refuse to listen. They will walk away in a huff. They will stay away from me which means there is less strife and anxiety in my life.
These are the only two responses I get.
How about you? Is there any way you successfully handle these situations in a Christ like manner?
Prayer: Please Jehovah KalEl (voice of God) bless me with the wisdom, grace and meekness to present the case of Your holy existence to any and all who are receptive to Your word and to be respectful to those who are unwilling to accept it. I respectfully ask this in the name of He who gave us the best example to follow Jesus Christ. Amen.
May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day
