But by Subtraction

 But godliness actually is a source of great gain when accompanied by contentment [that contentment which comes from a sense of inner confidence based on the sufficiency of God]. 1 Timothy 6:6 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

The more you have, the less happy and contented you are. That is a proven fact.

Most folks are puppets in the hands of big monopolies. They say if you have this you will be happy. Then, they charge you exorbitant amounts of money to purchase their product. Because you cannot afford it, it puts you into debt. Then, next year they come out with a new and improved product and the process it repeated.

If it gets between you and Christ, get rid of it. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Going into debt and working long hours only to be exhausted keeps you away from Christ.

Live a simple life, you will be much more contented.

I speak from a lot of experience. I have always lived a simple, frugal lifestyle and for the most part am very contented. I see those I grew up with being very materialistic and are the most miserable folks you ever meet.

For me, my greatest joy, and satisfaction is when sharing a conversation with Jesus. It need not be about my problems (although there is nothing wrong with that but it is not to be the only time you talk with Him). Many times it is when we are walking in His creation (nature) that we just talk about anything and everything like the best friends we are. It is so enjoyable. He opens my eyes to all the beauty around me and how He loves me and takes care of me. I am contented with His daily provision in my life.

I have lived in abundance and in abject poverty but learning to depend upon and be grateful for Jehovahs daily provisions is one of the greatest lessons learned. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Now I do not worry about where my next meal is coming from nor hoard things. Now I do not foolishly waste His daily provisions but use them wisely as a manner in which to show proper respect and appreciation for my Fathers provisions.

“Contentment is not by addition but by subtraction: seeking to add a thing will not bring contentment. Instead, subtracting from your desires until you are satisfied only with Christ brings contentment.” Jeremiah Burroughs

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) for patiently teaching me that my wants will never bring me satisfaction but being content in Your daily provision brings a lot of contentment, peace, appreciation, respect and peace. Next to being blessed with loving communion with You, these are the greatest of gifts You daily bless me with. I am in deep gratitude to You in the name of Your greatest gift to me Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with the gift of love, the gift of peace, the gift of joy. May you be blessed with numerous opportunities to share these gifts with others today.

A Heavy Load is Lifted

 Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you.1 Peter 5:7 Holy Bible New Living Translation

Why carry a load you are not intended to carry?

Jehovah is our loving Father. He cares about us and is always there to talk with like the closest companion we could ever be blessed to have (because He is).

When I have worries Jehovah always answers in two manners.

One: He will guide be to Bible Verses (Not just one, sometimes He will guide me to verse after verse for over an hour. Each one affirming His care for me and the action that must be taken to alleviate the concern. Sometimes the action must be taken independently, sometimes it must be taken as team work with the Holy Spirit, sometimes Jehovah just says to be patient, everything is in His capable hands. Every time what He says comes to fruition).

Two:Sometimes it is verse after verse how He loves me and cares for me. He will never desert me nor leave me. This brings great comfort and reassurance.

When we cast our cares upon the strong shoulders of Christ a heavy load is lifted from our minds, spirits and bodies and replaced with peace of mind. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Mephalti (The Lord my Deliverer) for consistently delivering me from all of my worries, problems and heartaches with Your strong, loving, gentle hand. I love the numerous ways in which You accomplish this. It fills me with awe, wonder, respect, love and admiration. I praise You in the name of my most loving best friend in who I always confide in Jesus Christ. Amen.

May love be in your life, may hope be in your heart and may peace be in your every day walk with Christ.

All for What?

thank him

 Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Philippians 4:6 New Living Translation

Worry is a thief.

It robs you of your physical health, it robs you of a good nights sleep, to robs you of your mental health, it robs you of your personal relationships.

All for what?

Most times the things I worried over never happened any way. And whether way it is always out of my hands so why waste your time and energy ?

It has taken me a life time to have confidence in Jehovah. Now, I just thank Him for being such a loving Father and have faith in that it is in His capable hands.

Worry is an insult to Jehovah. Joseph a son of Jehovah

When or if He directs me to take action I obey Him because of faith that it will bring success. If He says not to take any action my hand remains still because of faith that if my hand moves it will only bring disaster.

“Worry is a conversation you have with yourself about things you cannot change. Prayer is a conversation you have with God about things He can change.” unknown

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Shalom (The Lord blesses with Peace) for blessing me with Your Divine peace as I lay everything at Your feet. I have complete confidence in Your provisions in every aspect of my life. I exalt You in the name of the Prince of Peace 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

We Find Freedom When We Find

god is faithful

 So if the Son makes you free, then you are unquestionably free. John 8:36 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Some folks invest money to be free from worries when they retire. Many times their investment falls flat and they are left penniless.

Those who are blessed with a loving obedient relationship with Christ knows He will always take care of our retirement needs. We are free from that worry.

Some folks invest in property for security. Then the market collapses and their property is worth nothing compared to the amount they paid for it or their home is destroyed through natural resources.

Those who are blessed with a loving obedient relationship with Christ knows He will always make sure we have a comfortable place to live on this earth until He takes us home.

Some folks exercise and eat properly to stay healthy in their elder years. Then a disease racks their bodies and they are left crippled the rest of their years. They are left hopeless.

Those who are blessed with a loving obedient relationship with Christ knows He will always take care of our spirits which is far more important than our bodies.

There is nothing wrong with these investments in of themselves but when they are used to be independent of Jehovah they are very fragile and those who depend upon them left void of all freedom of worry and need.

“We find freedom when we find God; we lose it when we lose Him.” Paul E. Scherer

“You have made us for yourself [Lord], and our hearts are restless till they find rest in you” St. Augustine

Prayer: Oh my most Beloved Jehovah ‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) thank you for coming into my life and freeing me from the unmerciful bonds of fleshly slavery (lusts).And, to be free to love You and be loved by You in the divine manner which You desired from the fist man and woman to have communion with You. I praise You in the name of He whose blood made this most treasured gifts a possibility Jesus Christ. Amen

May the light of Christs love shine brightly in your heart today and every day

Will Guard Your

do not be afraid

 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:7 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

I have known a lot of war in my life.

The war of worry.

This plagues me with restless nights, bad health and nervous disposition. The only way to be victorious in this war is to lay it at the feet of my Beloved Heavenly Father. He sends the Holy Spirit to reassure me, comfort me and encourage me. He reminds me that everything is in His hands and that everything will work out for my good

The war of fear.

This battle leaves me timid and restless. The only way to be victorious in this war is to lay it at the feet of my Beloved Heavenly Father. He sends the Holy Spirit to reassure me, comfort me and encourage me. He reminds me that everything is in His hands and that He will always supply for my needs.

The war of anger and hatred (this includes jealousy).

This war boils the brain so it cannot function properly. It steals all joy and love from my soul. The only way to be victorious in this war is to lay it at the feet of my Beloved Heavenly Father. He sends the Holy Spirit to reassure me, comfort me and encourage me. He reminds me that the important thing to stay focused on is that those who unjustly inflict pain or sorrow on me shall be punished by His vengeful hand.

The war of loneliness.

The feeling of being unloved and all alone. A feeling so heavy it causes physical pain in my heart and great sobbing. The only way to be victorious in this war is to lay it at the feet of my Beloved Heavenly Father. He sends the Holy Spirit to reassure me, comfort me and encourage me. He reminds me that the important thing to stay focused on is that He loves me with a love that no other can compare with. That He is always with me and has a house built with love awaiting me in His Heavenly home.

The best security system there ever can be is the one wrapped up in Jehovahs loving arms. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Gador Milchamah (The Lord is Mighty in Battle) for providing me with the weapons to defeat satan in his battle against my mind and spirit. This unbeatable weapon of course is You Holy Love. I praise You in the name of my most precious lover Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Being a Missionary Is

Christ, WILL LEAD

Then Jesus said to them again, “Peace to you; as the Father has sent Me, I also send you [as My representatives].” John 20:21 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Being a missionary is going Where Christ send you. It may not be to another country, it may be to the next door neighbour. Even though it may seem small and insignificant to you, if it was not important to Jesus, He would not be sending you. You do not need a degree in some seminary, you need a willing heart now. Do not worry about what to say or how, the Holy Spirit will either guide you on what to say or will speak through you.

But when the Helper (Comforter, Advocate, Intercessor—Counselor, Strengthener, Standby) comes, whom I will send to you from the Father, that is the Spirit of Truth who comes from the Father, He will testify and bear witness about Me. John 15:26 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

An added benefit of this is becoming close to Jehovah as you become His missionary in your everyday life.

“It is in the ordinary duties and labors of life that the Christian can and should develop his spiritual union with God.” — Thomas Merton

If anyone dares to impede you, they had better be aware.

“Behold, I am going to send an Angel before you to keep and guard you on the way and to bring you to the place I have prepared. Be on your guard before Him, listen to and obey His voice; do not be rebellious toward Him or provoke Him, for He will not pardon your transgression, since My Name (authority) is in Him. But if you will indeed listen to and truly obey His voice and do everything that I say, then I will be an enemy to your enemies and an adversary to your adversaries. Exodus 23:20-22 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) for blessing me with Your amazing presence with me throughout the day. May I always be receptive unto Your wisdom and grow ever closer with You every minute of every day. I sincerely ask this in the name of He who I enjoy taking walks with and talking with Jesus Christ. Amen

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

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
