Is Your Head Hurting?

RESTLESS HEART

 Why are you in despair, O my soul? And why are you restless and disturbed within me?
Hope in God
and wait expectantly for Him. Psalm 42:5 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Despair is the state of being discouraged.

Is your head hurting from walking into walls ? You know the feeling , like no matter what you try it is like walking into a wall. You are pounding the pavement looking for employment yet it seems as if every door is closed. You have tried all kinds of different medical treatment yet your ailment is getting worse. Of course there is the wonderful experience of raising teenagers and they refuse to listen to you ( that has been going on for eons. ) .

The list could continue for a long time couldn’t it ?

To hope for something is to believe in the future occurrence of (something).

We are children of the Supreme God , children. Take hope that He loves you and because He loves you He will come to your aid in Him time in His way. His answer may not be what you desire however He is far more wiser than you. As a consequence He knows what is best for you far better that you do.

I know, there have been many times when I desired something in my life and passionately prayed for our Beloveds blessing to have it come to fruition. He did not. At the time I was bitterly disappointed. In reflection I see the wise providence of His hand that if He had of granted me my desire it would have been a disaster.

On the other hand there have been event that I fervently prayed for every day for decades. Finally He blessed me that they blossomed into reality. Again I understand why it took Him so long to grant my request and am joyously grateful for His blessings.

“Every tomorrow has two handles. We can take hold of it with the handle of anxiety or the handle of faith.” – Henry Ward Beecher

Prayer : Thank you Jehovah-Jireh (God is our Provider) for Your Divine abundant assistance throughout my life. I thank you that You refused some requests that would have led to certain disaster and for answering those that bring about joyous events that will glorify You. I exuberantly praise You in the name He whose sacrifice answered my call for salvation Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Focus to See the Light.

weary

 Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me [following Me as My disciple], for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest (renewal, blessed quiet) for your souls. Matthew 11:29 Holy Bible Amplified Version

We all suffer from trials and tribulations, sorrows and snares.

The difference between the ones walking in darkness and those of us that are walking in the light is that we have a Father in Heaven that loves us, cares for us and about us.

We have a choice. We can carry the world on our shoulders, or we can say, “I give up, Lord; here’s my life. I give you my world, the whole world.” –Bruce Larson

They have no one that has the perfect healing touch. Jesus loves you.

Jesus cares. Jesus is always there. Joseph- Anthony: Green

When we suffer the loss of a loved one we can always take our pain and sadness to Jesus. Do not forget how he weeped at His friends grave.

When we have lost our homes do not forget that Jesus was homeless.

When we are sick do not forget the sick Jesus healed.

When we have been betrayed do not forget how one of His own disciples betrayed Him. When our family and or friends reject us because of our walk towards our heavenly home do not forget how Jesus’ own family rejected and bitterly mocked Him.

When we suffer from exhaustion do not forget how exhausted Jesus was from his preaching and healing.

When we are facing death from a slow disease killer do not forget how Jesus knew about the type of death He must suffer.

Because Jesus walked amongst us He has experienced everything we have and so much more.

Be assured, if you walk with Him and look to Him and expect help from Him, He will never fail you. —George Müller

So when we are experiencing our difficulties remember to focus on He who is the light of the world. He will comfort you, heal you, encourage you and walk with you through it all because He loves you.

It is during our darkest moments that we must focus to see the light. –Anonymous

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-‘Ori (the Lord is my Light) for lighting my world with Your Divine love, assurance, comfort and strength in my darkest moments. I praise You for this blessing in the name of the light of the world Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Strive Together With Me

praying in chinese church

Now I beg you, brethren, through the Lord Jesus Christ, and through the love of the Spirit, that you strive together with me in prayers to God for me Romans 15:30 New King James Version

Whenever I am facing difficult times I like to go on prayer request sites and find someone enduring the same trail and tribulations as myself. I like to email them explaining the situation and explain to them that I am praying for them and ask them to pray for me I believe this encourages sincere deep felt prayers.

Only those who suffer like you can pray like you. Joseph- Anthony: Green.

As well it is good when I placed a certain difficult time on this web page. The brothers and sisters that not only promised to pray for me but gave loving words of encouragement blessed me a lot of strength and comfort.

I have a prayer list of about six groups that I pray for every morning.

Because I am a part of that prayer I pray all the more earnestly.

Why not give it a try.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Jireh (God our provider) bless me with names of other brothers and sisters who are enduring the same strial and tribulations as I so that we can gain strength and comfort in each others prayers. I humbly request this in the name of He who prayed for His disciples Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

I Am With You Always.

GODS LOVE

I am with you always, even to the end of the age. Matthew 28:20 New King James Bible

Being a Christian means you will never be politically correct.

You cannot be politically correct and Christ correct. Joseph- Anthony: Green

That means standing against what is wrong and standing for what is right.

This will leave you ostracized at work, at school and many times especially in your family. Many times it will feel as if it is you against the world.

Take heart, comfort and strength in the knowledge that Christ is there with you.

You can pour your heart out to Him because He has already been there.

While He waked amongst us He was hated and despised by many. His family rejected Him and made fun of Him. So He understands exactly how you feel.

The Holy Spirit will comfort you and strengthen you.

There have been many times I have experienced it and the Holy Spirit helped me through it all.

 

“You will never stand alone while standing on the Word of God.” Kathryn Souza-Wine

Prayer:  Thank you Jesus Pryyand (Jesus my friend) for walking with me through all my trial and tribulations as I stand for what You deem to be correct not what society falsely believes is politically correct. I praise you in Your wonderful loving name. Amen.

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

Growing Older Brings Us Closer to God.

A pair of red roses dancing in sunlight

It does not, therefore, depend on human desire or effort, but on God’s mercy Romans 9:16 New International Version                                                

Most times when we are younger we are cocky and depend upon ourselves more than we depend upon Jehovah.

As the years pass and we reflect how much our Beloved was walking with us through our trials and tribulations we respect and love Him more.

As we age we come to the realization that we will not be one this earth much longer and we have more aches and pains. We depend more upon our Cherished one and long to be with Him.

As a consequence growing older brings us closer to God.

Reflecting back I see a slow progression from self dependence to God dependence in my life. As well I see a deeper love, respect and admiration for my Beloved. I have grown closer to Him than I have with anybody or anything else. The consequence is a lot more peace, security and serenity in my life.

When the time comes for us to depart this world and we are laying in bed wondering if Jesus is real, if Heaven is real and if we are going to a Heavenly home the Holy Spirit comes to comfort and encourage us.

My salvation and my honor depend on God; He is my mighty rock, my refuge. Psalm 62:7 New International Version

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Chanan (God is gracious) for Your magnificent awesome infinite grace You have so richly showered upon me. Thank you for the comfort and encouragement of the Heavenly home You have so lovingly prepared for me to experience an eternity of love, joy, peace and good health with the one I so deeply love and long to live with. I exalt You in the name of my Heavenly king who is patiently waiting to greet me home Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

I Know Your Deeds .

FULLFILLED DESIRES

These are the words of him who holds the seven stars in his right hand and walks among the seven golden lampstands.  I know your deeds, your hard work and your perseverance. I know that you cannot tolerate wicked people, that you have tested those who claim to be apostles but are not, and have found them false.  You have persevered and have endured hardships for my name, and have not grown weary. Revelation 2:1-3 New International Version

Do not think the Jehovah does not know when you are going through hardships or that He does not care. He does.

Do not think that any service no matter how big or small goes unnoticed to Him. He knows.

 

We may not receive our reward here but se certainly will in heaven.

Do not do it to please people or to impress them.

Do it out of love for our cherished King Jesus of whom we are His loyal servants.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Shammah (God is present) for always walking with me through my trials and tribulations, sorrows and snares and my victories. I know it hurts when others reject me or mock me or ignore me in my duties to You. I also know that each one no matter how big or small is important to You. I sincerely give thanks in the name of He who was rejected by His people when He walked amongst us Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Treasure in Earthen Vessels

THE GOSPEL

 

But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us. 2 Corinthians 4:7 New King James Version

We are the earthen vessels and the power of God is the Holy Spirit who lives in us.

Therefore as Christians we shine forth Jehovah not us.

When we are Christians we have the ultimate superpower available to us, His name is The Holy Spirit.

When we endure trials and tribulations that would destroy ordinary men or women, the super power comes to help us.

When He does and those around us see it they are curious and want to know where this power came from. That is the opportune time to give witness to the power of God.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh (God our provider) for blessing me with the ultimate power to help me, The Holy Spirit and may I use every opportunity to witness of Him, through You to others so that they may be drawn to Your holy family. I give thanks in the name of He whose sacrifice made it all possible Jesus Christ. Amen.

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