Hold On to It

GOD IS IN THE FURNACE WITH US

Do not let your heart be troubled (afraid, cowardly). Believe [confidently] in God and trust in Him, [have faith, hold on to it, rely on it, keep going and] believe also in Me. John 14 1 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Many times when in times of trouble, sorrow or worry I held on to Christs strong, loving hand like a man holding onto the rescuers hand as he hauls me out of a swift raging river that threatens to engulf me. He always pulled me through.

Many times when Christ, my King took this servant of His to worlds unknown it was extremely terrifying. Yet, there was His strong hand gently in mine guiding me through it.

It has taken decades to learn and trust my Savior no matter what comes my way because of the knowledge and faith that His hand is in mine and He will never let me go.

Whatever comes your way always pray first unto our loving, caring Heavenly King for reassurance of His presence through this trauma. He will bless you with peace, and assurance that He is there with you. He is walking with you through every event both good and bad.

Today, why not heart feltly thank Him for the times He has been with you in the past (both that you knew of and the times He was there that you were not even aware of) as His gentle strong hand led you through all of your difficult times.

If you are going through difficult times now, call out to Him and rest in His strong but gentle loving bosom.

Jesus is always there, Jesus always cares. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Uzam (The Lord is our Strength in Trouble) for blessing me with Your strong gentle hand being in my feeble hand as we walked together through all of my difficult times both great and small. I am eternally grateful for this gracious loving gift. I praise You in the name of He who encouraged and strengthen His disciples as He walked with them, Jesus Christ. Amen

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

In the Quiet Moments

                                                        

The Lord is near to the heartbroken Psalm 34:18 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

I cannot count the number of times worry, sorrow, frustration and anger were so deep with in my soul it felt like a blanket of heavy steel completely encompassing my whole being. Jehovah always led me to a quiet place and there He comforted me, encouraged me and strengthened me.

So many folks laughed and wrote me off thinking I was totally demolished and a failure. The shock to them when they saw me return and go right back at it with gusto was quite humorous.

Sometimes this process was repeated numerous times but there was always victory in the end.

It does not matter what your situation in life there are always times when we need to be alone with our Beloved for Him to care for us both mentally, spiritually and physically.

“Be still, and in the quiet moments, listen to the voice of your heavenly Father. His words can renew your spirit. No one knows you and your needs like He does.” Janet L. Weaver

Prayer: Thank you YAHWEH Ropheka (God our healer) for blessing me with Your gentle loving reassurance, strength and comfort in my numerous times of need. I love You and adore Your for Your abundant grace You have bestowed upon this adoring child of Your. I exalt Thee in the name of the best Healer of all Jesus Christ. Amen

May your house be filled with joy in the morning and sweet dreams at night. May it be a home where love has come to live. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Great and Priceless Treasure.

                                                           

Great and Priceless Treasure.

Great and priceless treasure is in the house of the [consistently] righteous one [who seeks godly instruction and grows in wisdom], But trouble is in the income of the wicked one [who rejects the laws of God].Proverbs 15:6 Holy Bible Amplified Version

One of the greatest treasures is that of Godly instruction and wisdom.

Godly instruction will teach you about life. It will guide you away from disaster. It will guide you through storms. It will reveal to you hidden treasures in Heaven.

Wisdom is putting what you have learned into action.

The result is a lot less stress, anger, and grief. It will bless you with strength, encouragement, peace, love and joy.

I seek Heavenly riches as they are more satisfying than earthly ones. Joseph a son of Jehovah

The income of the wicked is one disaster after another. It will plague you with dissatisfaction in life. There will be jealously, anger, stress, worry and depression. Just look around you to find confirmation with it. I have seen an abundance of it in both lifestyles.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rabbi (God our Teacher) for Your kindness in enriching my life with priceless treasures held withing Your Holy word (the Bible) and other resources to become a wise child of Yours. I joyfully thank You in the name of the wisest Rabbi of all Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Let Him Do the Holding

                                             

 ‘Do not fear [anything], for I am with you; Do not be afraid, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, be assured I will help you; I will certainly take hold of you with My righteous right hand [a hand of justice, of power, of victory, of salvation].’ Isaiah 41:10 Holy Bible Amplified Version

One of the hardest parts of becoming a Christian for me was letting go and allowing Jehovah to take control. I am glad that I have finally succumb. After all, He is far wiser than I, has much more resources to deal with circumstances than I and has all power.

The end result is a life with a lot less stress, grief, frustration, worry and fear in my life.

Why not give it a try?

Why not reach out your hand and say: “ Lord please take my hand and guide me through these stormy waters.” ?

“Don’t trust to hold God’s hand; let Him hold yours. Let Him do the holding, and you the trusting.” — Hammer William Webb-Peploe

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) for the privilege of being able to always hold Your strong, firm yet gentle hand in my feeble hand as we walk through life together. It is so comforting and encouraging. I praise You in the name of He whose hand guided His beloved disciples so well Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Introverts are Closer To.

Early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left [the house], and went out to a secluded place, and was praying there. Mark 1:35 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

This is why I believe introverts are closer to Jehovah than extroverts.

Introverts thrive on being alone in quiet places. That is the only place to be blessed with true communion with Jehovah.

Extroverts are always busy (usually having fun) and no time to be in quiet solitude with our Beloved.

How are you to worship someone you spend little to no time with?

How are you supposed to listen to His voice if your too busy to sit quietly and listen to Him?

How are you supposed to share the wonders of His creation if you are too busy shopping or doing sports or any other activity that steal time from Him?

Us introverts thrive on solitude with Jehovah. It is the air we breathe. And, it blesses us with extreme closeness with Jehovah and His wonders. And, added benefit is that spending quiet time alone with our Beloved is good for our mental health. It melts away our anxiety, anger, worry and grief (it certainly does me) as He reassures us that everything is okay. He is taking care of it. It is good for our physical health. Because we have less stress on our minds it is beneficial for our bodies. And best of all it is fabulous for our spiritual health. Experiencing Jehovahs Divine love for us renews and strengthens our spirits.

Solitude matters, and for some people, it’s the air they breathe” Susan Cain

Prayer: All praise and glory unto You Jehovah-‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) for blessing me with always being oh so very close with me in our cherished quiet times. They are the most special times in my life. I praise You in the name of He whom is my best friend that I delight in being with as much as 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

When Folks Concentrate On

                                        

 Delight yourself in the Lord, And He will give you the desires and petitions of your heart. Psalm 37:4 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

We see it constantly (especially in the western countries) where folks foolishly go so deep into debt they will never get out of it. The end result is a lot of discontentment in their lives because they are slaves unto consumerism (which is a cruel master). There is no peace in their lives because they are constantly worried about paying off their debt. There is no love in their hearts because they are angry they are so far in debt. There certainly is no joy in their live because they lament over their pitiful state. The end result of this is a lot of physical sickness like ulcers and mental health. As well the heavy load of constant stress wears out their immune system so they are easy prey for any and all diseases that come their way.

When we are delighted in our loving relationship with Jehovah we do not need material stimulation to appease us. Our desires are to expand our loving relationship with Him and with others. This results in a life filled with contentment, love, joy and peace. As well, those who delight in our Lord have fewer sickness than those not in our Heavenly family because of Jehovahs peace, love and joy that reigns in our hearts.

When folks concentrate on Heavenly desires rather than earthly desires there is a lot more contentment, peace, love and joy in their lives. Joseph son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) for bountiful blessings of Your Heavenly treasure in my life and in my heart. They are the truest treasure of all. I praise You in the name of the greatest blessed treasure of all Jesus Christ. Amen

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

To Those Who Wait.

                                                                              

The Lord is good to those who wait [confidently] for Him,To those who seek Him [on the authority of God’s word]. Lamentations 3:25 Holy  Bible Amplified Version                                   

One thing I have learned over the numerous years of walking with Christ is that most times there is a lot of waiting.                                                                          

It may take day, it may take weeks, it may take years, it may take a lifetime but Jehovah is always true to His word. Joseph a son of Jehovah                                                                        

At first there is a lot of doubt and worry if He will answer our requests or when He is going to accomplish what He has promised us. This is even worse for the generation that demands instant everything. It must be very difficult for them.                                 

As we mature we learn to have confidence in that what Jehovah promised us will be done in His time and in His way ( even though most time we still wish He would hurry up).                

The reason we have this confidence is because we are familiar with His word and its actions in our lives. We have seen our lives reflected in the Bible through experience and from daily reading it.                                                                                   As well many, times as we read passages in the Bible (which is Jehovahs word) certain passage will remind us of how Jehovah fulfilled His promise in our life without us even realizing it.                                                                                                            I always though I was a patient man until becoming a Christian. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Shalom (The Lord blesses with Peace) for blessing me with Your Divine peace, patience and trust in Your Divine leading in my life. I praise You in the name of He who patiently endured His thick skulled disciples Jesus Christ. Amen.                                          

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