Hi, this is my blog to share encouraging thoughts - mostly from the Holy Bible and publications of the Watchtower Society.
It started as a challenge to do one thing (write something encouraging was my choice) for one hundred days. I like doing it, so i decided not to stop at 100!
Have a great and uplifting day, and may Jehovah bless you. : )
"O Jehovah, you yourself have proved to be a real dwelling for us, During generation after generation" Psalms 90:1 "Beloved, I exhort YOU as aliens and temporary residents to keep abstaining from fleshly desires, which are the very ones that carry on a conflict against the soul." 1 Peter 2:11 "In peace I will both lie down and sleep, For you yourself alone, O Jehovah, make me dwell in security." Psalms 4:8 "'You will prove to be firmly established in righteousness itself. You will be far away from oppression—for you will fear none—and from anything terrifying, for it will not come near you.If anyone should at all make an attack, it will not be at my orders. Whoever is making an attack upon you will fall even on account of you.'” Isaiah 54:14
"'Any weapon whatever that will be formed against you will have no success, and any tongue at all that will rise up against you in the judgment you will condemn.This is the hereditary possession of the servants of Jehovah, and their righteousness is from me,' is the utterance of Jehovah." Isaiah 54:17
"Although [the] fig tree itself may not blossom, and there may be no yield on the vines; the work of [the] olive tree may actually turn out a failure, and the terraces themselves may actually produce no food; [the] flock may actually be severed from [the] pen, and there may be no herd in the enclosures;Yet, as for me, I will exult in Jehovah himself;I will be joyful in the God of my salvation." Habakkuk 3:17, 18
He will deliver the poor one crying for help.—Ps. 72:12.
How heartwarming are those words, apparently penned by King David of ancient Israel! Years before writing them, he experienced remorse after committing adultery with Bath-sheba. At that time, David begged God: “According to the abundance of your mercies wipe out my transgressions. . . . My sin is in front of me constantly. . . . Look! With error I was brought forth with birth pains, and in sin my mother conceived me.” (Ps. 51:1-5) Mercifully, Jehovah takes into account our inherited sinful condition. Jehovah understands our lamentable situation. As foretold, however, God’s anointed King “will feel sorry for the lowly one and the poor one, and the souls of the poor ones he will save.” (Ps. 72:13) How will relief be provided? Psalm 72 tells us. Composed regarding the kingship of David’s son Solomon, this song provides foregleams of how the rule of God’s Son, Jesus Christ, will relieve mankind of distress. w10 8/15 4:1, 2
