In the Gutter Not in The .

 

                                                      

Whatever you do [whatever your task may be], work from the soul [that is, put in your very best effort], as [something done] for the Lord and not for men. Colossians 3:23 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

It is in the dirty that brings forth the most glory.

It is when we are asked and indeed sometimes it is demanded of us to do the dirty jobs no one else desires to do that we have the opportunity to bring Jehovah the most glory.

When I was a teacher in Asia I was always given the classes from Hell. Yes, they were tough but it was also an opportunity to bring Jehovah glory. Many times teachers, students and parents would see me praying before a class. Everybody laughed with the attitude that I needed all the help I could get. All the while they did not even believe in Jehovah.

I would walk into class and have a great class. Everyone was stunned. All glory was given where it rightly belonged: to my wise Teacher in Heaven.

Indeed, after about two months the horrible monsters became little angles. Everyone was shocked beyond words and they knew it was because of me (well, the majority of it was because of the Holy Spirit blessing me with wisdom, strength, patience, gracefulness and meekness).

Soon all the other parents wanted their children in my class. Some even became Christians.

The best opportunity to bring Jehovah glory is in the gutter not in the palace. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Many complain about their circumstances but will not lift a finger to make the change that needs to be done in their personal lives or their environment to improve their lot. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Please Jehovah Shammah ( The Lord is Present) be present with me when difficult and undesirable tasks are heaved upon my shoulders. Please bestow upon me Your Divine wisdom, grace, meekness and strength to use this opportunity to bring glory unto You my Love. I respectfully request this in the name of He who brought You untold glory as He took the  most horrible job of all on the cross Jesus Christ. Amen

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

It is in the Past that I see Myself Today.

                                       

You shall teach them diligently to your children Deuteronomy 6:7 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

One of the interesting things in tracing your family history is that it is in the past that I see myself today. It is a repeated pattern of dispositions that is in the genes that is passed on from generation to generation. In my case one side of the family is true villains while the other are saints.

Here is the amazing thing though, when we dedicate our lives unto Christ He burns off the dross (the bad dispositions) while replacing them with Godly ones. It is not something that is accomplished in a day or week. Sometimes it takes decades and even then some bad dispositions remain. I believe that the bad dispositions are permitted to remain so that we are dependent upon Jehovah to keep them under control.

“One must always maintain one’s connection to the past and yet ceaselessly pull away from it.” Gaston Bachelard

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El Deah (God of knowledge) for blessing me with sharing Your knowledge about my past with me to explain my dispositions to me. Thank you for working with me to burn off the dross of the undesirable inherited traits and replacing them with Your Divine traits to mold me into a Holy child of Yours. I exalt Thee in the name of my Beloved big brother Jesus Christ. Amen

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