To His Steps.

FOLLOWING CHTISTS EXAMPLE

A simple man believes anything, but a prudent man gives thought to his steps. A wise man fears the LORD and shuns evil, but a fool is hotheaded and reckless Proverbs 14:15-16, New International Version

Do you fall for the bait?

How many times do you see advertisements that promise a new younger you, a promise that if you follow this formula for a “special price” it will guarantee a new you, a more beautiful you, a richer you, a happier you?

How many times do you fall for the bait and part with hard earned cash only to find yourself ripped off?

Do you recklessly spend money on the newest fad in the foolish believe that you “have to have it” only to have it thrown in the closet a few weeks later? Come on now, how many of you older people were actually stupid enough to buy the “pet rock” in the sixties and seventies? Where is your pet now?

“These were people so hungry for love that they were accepting substitutes. There were embracing material things and expecting a sort of hug back. But it never works. You can’t substitute material things for love or for gentleness or for tenderness or for a sense of comradeship. Money is no substitute for tenderness, and power is not a substitute for tenderness. I can tell you as I’m sitting here dying, when you most need it, neither money nor power will give you the feeling you’re looking for, no matter how much of them you have.” Morrie (from Tuesdays with Morrie)

I believe in following a wise Jewish tradition that if you follow will prevent a lot of grief in your life. Before you buy anything or sign any contract always wait and pray for three days. Depend upon and obey Gods decision. It may not be what you want to heard or want to do, but isn’t it prudent to depend upon Gods infinite wisdom than our faulty wisdom? I have seen many people fall for the sign it now or it will be gone tomorrow sucker trap. Later they deeply regret it.

What the word “fear means is respect. Shouldn’t we respect Gods guidance instead of a snake oil salesman?

Restlessness and impatience change nothing except our peace and joy. Peace does not dwell in outward things, but in the heart prepared to wait trustfully and quietly on Him who has all things safely in His hands. Elisabeth Elliot

Prayer: Please Jehovah-Hoshe’ah The Lord Saves ) Psalm 20:9 bless me with Your salvation when circumstances tempt me to lose my temper or to surrender to satans temptation to do foolish things. I earnestly request this in the name of He who conquered all temptations 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. Joseph a son of Jehovah

I May Not Understand

follow your ways

Trust in the Lord with all your heart. The Holy Bible New Living Translation


I may not understand how everything will work out, but I trust you.
I don’t see a way, but I know you will make a way.
I have faith at this very moment you are touching hearts, opening doors, and lining up the right break and opportunities.
Things look dark and bleak now, but I have faith that my dawn is coming!
In Jesus’ name, Amen! Anonymous

“[Christians], at their best, know that often they don’t know. They do not have all the answers. They do not have God in their pocket. We cannot answer every question that any bright boy in the back row might ask. We have only light enough to walk by.” — Howard A. Johnson

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Hoshe’ah ( The Lord Saves ) Psalm 20: 9 that even when I do not see the way, I trust in Your Divine providence to save the lost and guide those walking in darkness into Your brilliant light of love. I thank You in the name of He who is the light of the world 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.

Here is the Difference.

FOLLOW JESUS

Jews demand signs and Greeks desire wisdom, but we proclaim Christ crucified, a stumbling block to Jews and foolishness to Gentiles, but to those who are the called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God” 1 Corinthians 1:22-24 The Holy Bible, New Living Testament

Here is the difference between believers and those that are perishing: We believers have faith. Another word for faith is trust. We trust Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit even when we do not understand.

The world demands to see signs before it will believe. Even then they will not believe because that would mean they have to give up their independence and depend upon Jehovah.

Many times Jehovah will request we do things that do not make sense to us. We do not need , even though we request, Jehovah explain the hows and whys of what He wants us to do because it does not make sense to us. He stays quiet but again we trust Him and obey even though we do not understand. Most times, but not always, it comes to light at the completion of the assignment the what and why of Jehovahs commands.

“Have you been called to go out on a limb for God? You can bet it won’t be easy. Limb-climbing has never been easy. Ask Joseph. Or, better yet, ask Jesus. He knows better than anyone the cost of hanging on a tree.” Max Lucado

The world demand to know why before they agree to do anything. Even then they will not do it because they do not want to Jehovahs will but rather choose to do their own, which is true foolishness.

To be a Christian means to trust and obey the Holy Spirits guidance even when we do not understand the how and why. It is to surrender our will for His. Joseph a son of Jehovah

And it is impossible to please God without faith. Anyone who wants to come to him must believe that God exists and that he rewards those who sincerely seek him. Hebrews 11:6 The Holy Bible, New Living Testament

Prayer:Thank you Jehovah ELOHIM YAKOL (God, the Most Able) for always being able to guide my life in the best direction to get to Heavens gate. Even though I do not have the guide map I trust in Your leading me there through out all of my life. I praise You in the name of He who trusted You all the way to the cross 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.Joseph a son of Jehovah

All in One Word.

Today our world is plagued by rage and depression. It oozes into every cranny of society, rich and poor, man and woman, of every colour and nationality.

Everyone is asking why.

It can all be summed up in one word: unforgiveness.

When we refuse to forgive someone for an offense they have committed upon us it seeps into every aspect of our life. That is why there is so much road rage, why there is so much drug abuse, why there is so much failed marriage, why there is so much in fighting in families.

Why do folks refuse to forgive?

Because, we are greedy.

Instead of leaving justice in Jehovahs capable hands we demand the right for blood by our own.

Unforgiveness is a form of selfishness. We demand our pound of flesh.Joseph a son of Jehovah

The cure for this selfishness can only be found by laying our grievances at the feet of Jesus and trusting Him to deliver true justice in His time and in His way.

Speaking from personal experience, Christs justice is far more terrible than anything we could administer to the unrepentant.

The Lord works out everything to its proper end— even the wicked for a day of disaster. The Lord detests all the proud of heart. Be sure of this: They will not go unpunished. Proverbs 16: 4-5 Holy Bible New Living Translation

In the mean time, we are to pray for the offended to come to repentance for their own good.

If possible stay away from abusive folks and if you have to deal with them do so graciously but firmly. Let them know their attitude and behavior is not welcome nor tolerated. Therefore, the relationship shall remain formal, but, if they repent the door of friendship shall be opened

Prayer: Please Jehovah Elohe Tishuathi (Psalms 18:46&51:14) – GOD of My selfishnessSalvation bless me to always have a forgiving heart towards others as You do towards me. Please bless me with the wisdom, strength and provision to walk away from habitual  abusers and to pray for them to come unto repentance as well. I humbly request this in the name of He whose blood made forgiveness possible 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

Thank Him For It And

 Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take. Proverbs 3:5-6 Holy Bible, New Living Translation

Do you truly have confidence in our Heavenly Father?

Then when you go to Him with a problem when you are finished talking with Him about it, thank Him for it and drop it. I do not mean to never mention it again but rather do not whine about it consistently to Jehovah. That is annoying when someone does that to me, I can only imagine how annoying it is to Jehovah when untold numbers of His children do it to Him.

For me, I mention it every morning to Him more as a way for me to remember it than to remind Him of it. Many times I tend to forget the problem (unless it is persistent or is a crisis) and then one day something happens and it pops into my mind that that is Jehovah answering my prayers in unusual and unique ways. It always makes me laugh and thank Him for His wonderful humour as well as His loving Providence.

For the rest of my life I am going to trust that Jehovah is always at work in all things and give Him thanks long before my simplest prayers are answered. Nancy Parker Brummet

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Shalom (The Lord blesses with Peace) for blessing me with peace every time I place my confidence in You, no matter how dire the situation. You are truly the most awesome Father of them all. I extol You in the name of He who placed His life in Your Divine hands with complete confidence, as I deeply desire to, all the way to the cross, Jesus Christ. Amen

May Christ bless you with love, joy and peace today and every day.

The Best Guidance Councillor

follow your ways

 There Is One Who considers and understands all that they do. Psalms 33: 14-15 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

Why go with the crowd when they do not know where they are going?

Why not submit to Jehovah and allow Him to nurture and grow you the way He made you to be unique, there is no one like you?

When you have problems, the first one you should go to is the one who understands you. Who understands you better that He who created you or some quack the needs some good counselling themselves?

When you need guidance in your life who better to go to some quack on TV or Jehovah, the wisest of them all?

What kind of guidance does the world give? Just put your mind to it and you can do anything you desire. Try flapping your arms and see if you can fly like a bird.

Jehovah says when you submit to Him He will guide you on the course He has set for your purpose in life.

Which one would you trust?

Jehovah is the best guidance Councillor there is bar none. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah El Deah (the God of knowledge) bless me with Your supreme knowledge so as to live a righteous life that is pleasing to You. I sincerely request this in the name of the wisest teacher of all 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
