Three in One.

joygiftfromgod

Since we are living by the Spirit, let us follow the Spirit’s leading in every part of our lives. Galatians 5:25 New Living Translation Bible

It is a bitterly cold day outside today and I had no intention of leaving the house, but, the Holy Spirit gently nagged me to go for my morning walk.

Before leaving I am grateful the Holy Spirit inspired me to get just the right cat photo’s and write cute inspirational birthday greeting for mom and the pastors wife (the have birthdays a few days apart) from the computer.

Today I am grateful the Holy Spirit nagged me to wear sunglasses even though it was cloudy outside. With the wind chill factor it was minus thirty. Without the sunglasses my eyes would have been injured in the hard, biting wind.

I am grateful the Holy Spirit had me go into the bulk store today because it was seniors discount day (that is not what I am grateful for) because when in there He suggested I buy white chocolate and licorice to make two different birthday cakes for mom.

I am grateful the computer at the computer store I went into to accepted the pdf format used to download Christian books for mom(sometimes they do, sometimes they do not).

 I am grateful that the store I went into to have the birthday photo cards printed off at had some good markdowns and it was the last day of the sale. All these store are in the same mall so I got three in one.

I am grateful that the Holy Spirit educated me in the proper manner in which to deal with the obnoxious neighbour. He reminded me of how to deal with them in the workplace and in the family. That method is being carried over with the neighbour.

I love the unique way in which Jehovah guides me every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) for blessing me with the Holy Spirits guidance in the mundane events in my life as well as the monumental ones. They are all equally important to You and equally important to us to obey if we desire to receive Your blessings. I praise You in the name of He who was obedient unto You all the way to the cross Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love fill your heart today and every day.  Joseph a son of Jehovah

The Trail Blessings.

thank you

 

 Today I have received numerous blessings on the daily hike.

The first one was beautiful weather to go for a long hike.

Instead of going one of the normal routes the Lord directed me to a different route. While walking along the asphalt walkway there was a saying spray painted upon the pavement that was eye catching. It was photographed to be used later for this blog.

Then , the Lord guided me to a small trail up a hill. On top of the hill there was a view of the raised gardens built by some of my detractors that laughed at the design the Lord instilled upon me to build for our raised garden. Upon inspecting it, it was discovered to be all falling apart (while the Lords design is still as good as new. Both were built at the same time).

I then returned to the main trail and continued on my way.    

A short while later the Lord guided me to take a little side street. At the end of that side street, there was another side street. At the end of that side street was a trail. The trail was oh so beautiful with quaint little bridges along petite creeks. It was so beautiful. I had walked this route numerous times and never saw this trail.

As the walk continued along the main route which took me into a bush. At one point there is a resting place beside a quiet little rapids where I usually rest. The Lord opened my eyes to a little trail I never noticed before. There, along the trail was a pile of discarded patio stones in mint condition that can be used for the flower garden which will be retrieved in the spring. I know the owner of the land and he has previously informed me any treasures found back there were mine if I wanted them (that is where some of the materials to build the Lords raised garden came from). Finally, on the other side of the creek is a pile of pressure treated lumber that has been thrown out that, again, can be used in the spring for garden projects.

I find it amazing just what folks throw out.

It is funny when others ask me where I got the building material and they are informed. They think Ia am crazy but I believe in using everything to its most potential.

Jehovah supplies our tomorrows in ways as unusual as He does our todays. It causes us to marvel at Him all the more. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh (God my provider) for blessing me with numerous provisions today that will be used for future projects that I know You have in store for me to accomplish in conjunction with the Holy Spirit, this spring. You constantly amaze me my Love. I praise You in the name of He who fed the four thousand 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.

Before the Rain Comes.

God is already there.

One day I was lying by a big generator by a river enjoying peace and quiet.            

Living in a city in China it is very noisy so it is a treasured time to enjoy the quiet steady drum of the generator drowning out the noise around me.                                          

I felt the Holy Spirit directing to get up a go home, a storm was coming.                      

There was only one tiny black cloud in the sky and I laughed about it.                              

The feeling kept getting stronger until I finally got up and started back to the apartment.                                                                                                                         

Just as I reached toilet facilities in the park, a monsoon downpour came thundering in with lightning exploding all around.                                                                                           

If you have ever experienced a monsoon rain you will believe that in ten minutes it rains so much the streets are so flooded you can take a canoe down them like in rapids.                                                                                                                                    

After ten minutes the rain passed.                                                                                         

How many times have we experienced a warning from the Holy Spirit, looked around, saw no danger and ignored the warning. Then, in the blink of an eye, disaster strikes.                                                                                                             

Afterwards we cry out to God and asked why He did not warn us?                                            

Prayer: Please Jehovah KalEl (voice of God) bestow me with the wisdom to be receptive and obedient to Your divine word.   I sincerely ask this in the name of He who always was an obedient son Jesus Christ. Amen                                                                                                                               

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

I Do It His Way.

WORSHIP

Pride and arrogance and the evil way and the perverse mouth I hate. Proverbs 8:13 New International Version

 

Here is a little game for you to play that you may find very revealing.

Keep a tally of how many times you say I did or I got in a day.

Then see how many times you see how many times you thank the Lord in a day.

Now compare them.

How humble are you?

How grateful are you towards Jehovah Jireh (God who provides).

How many times does He grant you when you do not even thank Him for the blessings he has already given you?

Why should He?

I do it Jehovah’s way with a humble heart and most of my requests are granted.

Here is a good example: It is a forty minute walk to the library. During monsoon season storms can come up in five minutes and they are a downpour.   I humbly ask the Lord to keep the rain at bay during the walk (which surprise, surprise He does). When arriving at the library thanks is given for nice weather. Before leaving for the library I humbly request there is a certain table there the computer can be plugged into and it is relatively quiet. Surprise, surprise, the table is always there even though there is a blocks long line up waiting for the library to open and when it does all the tables are taken in ten minutes. Again, humble and sincere thanks are given for this blessing.

How many times would you have given thanks?

“By humility and the fear of the Lord are riches and honor and life” Proverbs 22:4 New International Version.

 

Pride brings shame. Humility brings wisdom. Joseph- Anthony: Green                                                          

Prayer: Please Jesus Pyrrand (God my friend) always bless me with a grateful heart, especially towards you, for the numerous blessings You so abundantly give me every day. I humbly ask this in Your gracious name. Amen.                                

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

Three Quarters Given.

PERFECT LOVE

 

These articles are dedicated to the wonderful and amazing way Jehovah Jireh (the Lord our provider) answers prayers. It is a simple journal that I would like to use as an example for others to list their sincere prayer requests and then how our Beloved answers them.                                                                                                                                       

It will amaze you and create a heart of gratitude and respect for our gracious Jehovah Heseh (Our God of love).

He calms the storm. Proverbs 107:29 New King James Version

There was a bad storm coming our way today with snow storms turning to freezing rain. This makes driving extremely treacherous.

Mom had a friend driving her to another city for medical treatment as well as another friend that had to drive her daughter to another city for an operation.

I prayed the Lord bless their journey with holding off the storms until mom and her friend safely returned home.

When she left there were light flurries.  They continued throughout the day.

Just as mom and her friend got home the freezing rain began.

Three quarters of my prayers were given to me.

I prayed for mom to have a safe trip there and back and it was done.

I prayed for moms friend to have a safe trip there and back and she just missed being involved in a terrible pile up on the highway and got back safely.

The Lord held off the freezing rain until after they came home.

Although it did snow out it was not a blizzard with white outs.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Yeshua (God our rescuer) for with holding Your tempest until my loved ones arrived safely home.  I praise you in the name of He who calmed the storm for His terrified disciples on the sea Jesus Christ. Amen.

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