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.

Have You Ever Worked For

GREATEST CONTENTMENT

Work willingly at whatever you do, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people. Colossians 3:23Holy Bible, New Living Translation Version

Have you ever worked for the nit pickers before?

Nit picker are those that no matter how good your work is they can always find something wrong with it. They take all the steam out of your desire to excel at what you are doing. This is a real tragedy when the nit pickers are parents.

It takes a lot of work and therapy to get over their poison they inject into their childrens impressionable minds.

Teachers can have the same short term affect.

When I do work I like to step back and ask my Heavenly Father if He is pleased with what has been done.

Most times He is and there is a warm feeling of satisfaction flowing through me.

When He isn’t there is no scolding. He just redirects my effort and then I step back and marvel at what we have accomplished and gratefully thank Him. There has been numerous times when He guides me to do something that I have no desire to do but do it with great gusto to please Him, which gives immeasurable pleasure to me.                                   

Most times when the project is completed I see what He was doing and the finished project looks fantastic even though it looked stupid and was laughed at by others or looked ugly but was beautiful when completed.

Sometimes we will not see the purpose of His task until we enter our Heavenly home. That is okay though because we take satisfaction in knowing what we did pleased our Heavenly King in the here and now.

Work for Jehovah, not man. It is appreciated so much more. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever) for the esteem of being Your humble, obedient, loyal servant. It is the greatest delight that can be offered to me. I exalt You in the name of the King of Kings Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with the gift of love, the gift of peace, the gift of joy. May you be blessed with numerous opportunities to share these gifts with others today.

I Certainly Don’t Recommend

GODS DELIGHTS

The troubles of my heart are multiplied; Bring me out of my distresses. Psalms 25:17 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

If you want to live an easy comfortable life do not become a Christian.

A Christians life can be expected to be one filled with sorrow, pain, hardship and loneliness.

You will be filled with sorrow at the ones who reject Christ (especially those in your maternal family) and by extension ostracize you. You will not be invited to family get togethers, weddings, funerals or anniversaries. It will cut deep.

You will suffer pain of never being invited to get togethers by those you work with. You will be treated like a freak and mocked.

You will suffer loneliness as Christ takes you away from comforts of this life into service for Him. You will feel as if you are the only person in the world because everyone around you rejects you mocks you and ostracizes you. It will cost you your family, your friends, your career, maybe your health, your financial security.

You will face hardship because of what you have to surrender unto Christ (in the beginning of your walk you will not be sure if He will supply your needs).

If this sounds like to heavy of a price to pay let us look at the rewards:

You can be sure that no matter the family and friends who reject you Christ will bring to you a Christian communion that will be closer than any maternal family member or worldly friend.

No matter recession or physical injury or anything that hampers you finances Christ will always make sure you have a comfortable place to live, clothes on your back and food in your belly.

In your hardship it will bring you ever closer to Christ which will expand your love, admiration, trust and friendship with Him, which is the best treasure of them all.

It is not: is it worth giving up everything to become a Christian but rather why in the world would I desire anything but Christ in my life. Joseph a son of Jehovah

  “I didn’t go to religion to make me ‘happy.’ I always knew a bottle of Port would do that. If you want a religion to make you feel really comfortable, I certainly don’t recommend Christianity.” C. S. Lewis

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Uzam (The Lord is our Strength in Trouble) for blessing me with Your Divine strength to endure and prosper (yes prosper because the prosperity is in the enlargement of our eternal love affair) during my suffering because of my association with You. I exalt You in the name of He gladly enduring the most horrible suffering for me 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.

True Thanksgiving Means

                    

Be persistent and devoted to prayer, being alert and focused in your prayer life with an attitude of thanksgiving. Colossians 4:2 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Every morning I begin my day by thanking Jehovah for all he has done for me and through me. Every day throughout the day I praise Him for His blessings great and small. Every evening I thank His for the abundant blessings He has showered upon me throughout the day. Every day I thank His for every opportunity He has blessed me with to serve Him with even greater joy than the thanks given when He blesses me with good.

Try thanking Him every morning as soon as you wake up. Try thanking Him throughout the day for all of His blessings both great and small. Try thanking Him every evening when you go to bed for the blessings He has bestowed upon you throughout the day. Try it for a month and see how your relationship with your Heavenly Father blossoms into an amazing loving relationship which no other can compare.

“True thanksgiving means that we need to thank God for what He has done for us, and not to tell Him what we have done for Him.|” George R. Hendrick

Prayer: Oh my Beloved Jehovah Heseh (God is love) how I am filled with divine love and joy when I sing songs of gratitude unto You my love for all You have done in my life and through my life every day. I thank You in the name of the most treasured gift of all Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

War Against the Soul.

SINFUL DESIRE

Abstain from fleshly lusts which war against the soul. 1 Peter 2:11 New King James Version

                                                                                                    

If you are older like me you have witnessed the spiraling descension of our western society into a cesspool. In our  music, TV shows and movies morality has taken back seat to the shock effect to addict people to the filth. Look at many of todays singers when they were just starting out and portrayed as sweet and innocent. As that became passé they became more and more depraved to stay on top. 

                                                                        

Society thinks it is cool to emulate them.                                                          

Look at the movies and listen to popular songs. There is so much filth in it that laughingly is called entertainment.                                                            

It encourages premarital sex, why do they not have interviews with people who have contracted syphilis (we have a run for aids why not a run for syphilis which is much more common and much more deadly?) or had abortions and their lives ruined because of this lifestyle? 

                                                                         

Seeking after self instead of seeking to better society. Why do they not talk about how many suicides there are because of loneliness?               

When you surround yourself with yourself you end up with no one but yourself. Joseph- Anthony: Green                                                                        

Materialism which says buy this and you will be happy.                                 

Why do they not have interviews with folks that have had their lives and marriages destroyed by bankruptcy?                                                                     

Indeed is not every society in the world today facing eminent bankruptcy on a scale never witnessed before in history because of this empty “happiness”?                                                                                          

Is not every government in the world facing bankruptcy because their populace lives by the entitlement theory and to stay in power the politicians give the people what they want and not what they need?                                                                      

“We forfeit three-fourths of ourselves to be like other people.”  Arthur Schopenhauer   

                                                                                                         

On the other hand when you seek after Christ you are in the spiritual world. In this world you experience His love and divine joy which nothing of the flesh can even begin to compare with.      

                                  

I would not give up one moment of my Christian life for a lifetime of fleshly desires being fulfilled. Joseph- Anthony: Green                                                                                                  

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Heseh (god is love) for blessing me with the most treasured gift ever possible, Your divine love. I praise You in the name of He who showed His supreme love for me on the cross Jesus Christ. Amen.                                              

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