Nii, what is your email address?
Excerpt from a book that I am reading:
(Yah) created us as relational beings. He wants us to turn to other people for friendship, support and help. This truth is revealed early in scripture, in Genesis 2:18, when Yah created a companion for Adam.
And the Most High said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a companion (helper) who will help him.”
In Psalm 68:6, David praised Yah for the way He cares for lonely people.
Yah places the lonely in families. He sets the prisoners free and gives them joy. But for rebels, there is only famine and distress.
Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 gives advice to the lonely—reach out to others for help. Look for friends who can comfort you and help you through your loneliness.
Two people can accomplish more than twice as much as one. They get a better return for their labor. If one person falls, the other can reach out and help. But people who are alone when they fall are in real trouble.
Even the best of friends sometimes fail us in our time of need but Yah never fails. Peter (Kepha) reminds us in 1 Kepha 5:12 that Yah will be with us and will help us” no matter what happens.
I have written this short letter to you with the help of Silas, whom I consider a faithful brother. My purpose in writing is to encourage you and assure you that the grace of Yah is with you no matter what happens.
Do you ever feel forgotten, alone in a crowd, in the increasing pace of life, or even in the culture of the corporation? Feeling lonely and anonymous, you may wonder whether anybody knows or cares.
Yah does. He remembers your name and His promise to be with you, to guide you and to bring you home. Now it’s up to you to remember your Master and His love for you and then to rest secure and hope (trust) in him.
Yah encouraged lonely Yliyah to make friends with Ylishua, 1 Kings 19:14-18
Yah does not crush the lonely, Isaiah 42:1-7
Yahoshua is always with you, Mattithyah 28:20
Excerpt from a book that I am reading:
Moses felt inadequate to be Yah’s spokesman to the pharoah of Egypt—he had no choice but to depend on Yah’s help. This allowed Yah to show his strength through Moshe’s weakness. Exodus 4:12-15 explains:
Yah said to Moshe: “Now go and do as I have told you. I will help you speak well and I will tell you what to say.” But Moses again pleaded, “Yah, please! Send someone else.” Then Yah became angry with Moses. “All, right,” He said. “What about your brother, Aharon the Levite? He is a good speaker. And Look! He is on his way to meet you now. And when he sees you, he will be very glad. You will talk to him, giving him the words to say. I will help both of you to speak clearly and I will tell you what to do.”
After three days of wandering in the desert without water, the Israylites complained to Moses. Exodus 15:25 reveals that Moses knew who to turn to for help.
So Moses cried out to Yah for help and Yah showed him a branch. Moses took the branch and threw it into the water. This made the water good to drink.
David faced overwhelming obstacles and dangerous enemies many times in his life. He learned to ask Yah for help. In Psalm 145:18-19, David praised Yah for hearing his cries and helping him.
The Most High is close to all who call on him, yes, to all who call on him sincerely. He fulfills the desires of those who fear him. He hears their cries for help and rescues them.
In comic strips and cartoons, masked superheros answer calls for help from those in distress. They rush quickly to the rescue at the sign of trouble. We know, of course, that such characters exist only in fiction and in our imaginations. But at times, we want the cartoons to be true, especially when facing complex issues, giant problems and difficult conflicts. We want someone to hear our frantic cries and run to our side.
These passages in Psalms declare that, in fact, someone is listening. Not an imaginary hero with superhuman powers, but a real person (being) with all power and authority is standing near, ready to save. And more than simply rescuing individuals from temporal plights, this person (being), Yah Almighty, saves for all eternity. Yah knows your situation and your desires. He stands close and ready to help.
Oh, send out Your light and Your truth! Let them lead me. Let them bring me to Your Set-apart hill and to Your tabernacle. HalleluYah. Psalm 43:3.
Shabbat Shalom y’all. I bought a box of cards about a month ago to pass out to the local Hebrews that I meet. Click on the image to read the card. The image above is the front of the card. Do you like the card? Is there anything I should add or change?
This is the back of the card. Click on the image to read it. I was going to print up flyers but I notice that people quickly throw flyers away and are slow(er) to throw away cards (well speaking for myself). I tend to hold on to cards that are given to me. Also I’m probably going to get brochures made for the blessedwomanofyah site so that it is easier for first time readers to navigate. HalleluYAH. #marketing
Yesterday, a young lady on my job was telling me that she has been depressed about a break-up. We haven’t seen each other in about two weeks. We talked for a few minutes. I’m reminded of this scripture:
The psalm writer acknowledged in Psalm 42:1-2 that we are all made with an emptiness that only Yah can fill. As the deer pants for streams of water, so I long for you, O Yah. I thirst for Yah, the living Yah. When can I come and stand before Him?
