Compassion and Patience Must Come From Both Parents and Children

Parents and children must know that perfection is not part of our natural nature. Learning through trial and error is the natural process of intellectual maturity.                                           Joan Jessalyn Cox ~ Sharable Quotes

It takes great compassion from both parents and children, during their growing seasons, to have patience and consideration toward one another when they disagree about something.

Experience drives home the lessons we need to learn. When we must either prove or disprove a concept by living through an incident, situation, or circumstance, we are learning through our experiences. When we must use our five senses to help us know whether our perception of that concept is right or wrong, we gain a more intense understanding through our experiential lessons.

We need the test of time, and trial and error, to challenge us and pose the questions we need answers to.  We can find the path we need to travel, to be all we can be as we become our original self, through our life lessons of trial and error.

Parents and children needs someone to guide them with patience and compassion, because we are all sensitive to people around us and their emotions affect the people whose life they touch to either inspire or destroy their human will.  

“For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope.  

Now the God of patience and consolation grant you to be like minded one toward another according to Christ Jesus.”  Romans 15:4&5

When we pray our confidence grows according to our faith in Jesus Christ, and when you give your need to Jesus to be your strength and motivation, the Lord will get you to where He wants you to be.

The wisdom we gain when we know compassion is the better part of valor, is discovering the truth, to make necessary changes to transform our ways, by renewing our mind, and choosing to live according to God’s truth.

The human will must be engaged to make a significant change, you can only change according to the change in one’s personal choices in life. The human will is the mental faculty by which one deliberately chooses, or decides upon a course of action. Acting upon ones choice involves having a great enough desire, for implementing the energy and wisdom necessary to make any change, and especially a significant change in one’s life. Many times fear and worry will hinder, distract, detour, or destroy one moving toward a great change in their life.

Every one balks at change, the bigger the change appears to be, the more we dig our heels in the sand and stop all movement toward change. Many times change can’t come just by knowing it should happen. Sometimes it takes catastrophic things to happen before we are catapulted into action.

“Your will to do something substantial has to be driven by a great desire to make the move happen.”     Joan Jessalyn Cox ~ Sharable Quotes

You will not move until you want to move, whether you must change a job, associates, the place you live, or to seek a greater education you must experience the push of fire, in your desire to make life changes. We must always know we can do better no matter who we are.

“You won’t move until your spark of desire is set on fire. Some call it motivation, inspiration, or desperation.”      Joan Jessalyn Cox ~ Sharable Quotes

Parents may resist or hesitate at their own leap of faith in a significant change and turn the tide when dealing with a change in their child’s life. They might become excessively demanding when a child hesitates about a serious change in their own life.

 Patience in anyone’s life is needed when they need time to think on all that is necessary to make a great change. As a parent you must become the more mature one in how you treat a problem in your child’s life. Change is change whether small or great, and most must have time to decide to move on.

You must think through the misgivings you had before you could overcome your own desire to shirk a duty to change. When you wanted to remain in the comfort of your own well-worn way to live, it’s the same hurtle everyone must overcome to accept change.

How do you, as someone who has faced change and conquered your fears, help others to not only conquer their fears, but to create a desire to be transformed by renewing their mind? What do you say to people who not only need to have the desire to change, but to also be fortified enough to have the inner drive to do it?

How do you fire up people’s desire to climb victory mountain one step at a time?

Whoever you are inspiring with the truth of God’s word and urging them to move by his Holy Spirit in faith, will move when God’s ways in handling a change or situation is activated by prayer!

“Compassion is that tender hearted person who looks beyond one’s faults and sees their needs, to relieve hurts by forgiving the offender.”                                                                                  Joan Jessalyn Cox ~ Sharable Quotes

We find valor in that brave person, who sees all the wrong in another person, but will carry on with bold fortitude to stand up for truth, when someone else is resisting with aggressive force to stay caught in a web of evil.

Do you know someone that is caught in a web of evil, and it’s destroying their life? Do you have children that greatly need to be snatched out of the clutches of evil people’s influence?

A person who is so deceived by a false belief will curse and threaten you, to keep from accepting your confrontation with them about the truth, they may be a hard case indeed, but praying for them can help them come to the end of their rebellion.

A parent must be patience and forbearing like Jesus for the sake of the person poisoned enough to be engulfed with tormenting addictions, or led astray by overbearing people with penetrating lies. It might be your own child or the lost child of someone who is neglecting, or abusing the young person who cries in the dark.

 When young people are being controlled with threats on their life or with drugs, they need your courage to go above and beyond what you want to do. They need your compassion in order to help them be delivered from the evil clutches of those who want to destroy their life.

Raising children is the greatest challenge in life you can have, because you are required to wear many hats, so to speak, to cover all their emotional and spiritual needs, as well as their physical needs. You need to have the continuous support of the Lord through prayer, and the wisdom in how to approach a problem discreetly.

Your parental duties continue throughout your children’s life and continues on behalf of your grandchildren.

 Family traditions on how they handled problems in the past flows down through your family lineage, and through the family stories about their life experiences in the past, the family adds some ideas they used to survive.

Grandparents would tell their grandchildren about having everyone in the vicinity to bring their musical instruments over for a Saturday night sing. Old songs were sung and taught to the children, many times they sang hymns that they would sing at church the next morning.

The roots of Christianity remain strong in the family line and becomes the source of salvation for many of their offspring. Who doesn’t need the warmth of holy, heart-felt love to surround their life, along with the family members who love them enough to keep praying for them even when they seem their worst?

That legacy of loyalty in love, and the uniting force of faith in the Lord Jesus Christ through prayer, is the strength that will pull a family through the rough places in life and bring them back together.

5 Star Review By Tammy Ruggles for Readers’ Favorite

Love And Protect Your Children: Be A Good Parent by Joan Jessalyn Cox is an impactful, inspiring Christian-based counseling book for parents. Based on Biblical principles and crafted with only the best intentions in mind for Christian parents, this is a well-written and thoughtful guide to raising children with a Christian attitude, and how to interact with others in a positive way–a way that will help them and serve them in meaningful ways. There are a lot of parenting books available, and some of them are faith-based, so this is meant for a Christian audience, but it also has the potential for a wide-reaching appeal, as the message promotes kindness, generosity, and helping your children by strengthening bonds and instilling positive moral behaviors.

Cox has conscientiously outlined lessons that help prevent family conflicts and problems, not just address them as they occur, which could be considered too late in some circumstances. Trouble can arise in any family, and the author is aware of this, so the angle of her book is all about prevention, and always being in teaching and leading mode with your children, as well as love mode, of course. Teachable moments are important points in the text, and I like how the author stresses the themes of helping others be happy and reaching out to others with advice and a listening ear.

Some of the lesson topics include manners, being more moral, having and sharing values, advice on marriage, fostering self-discipline, how to admonish a child in a positive way, and many more. Doing something nice for someone without expecting anything in return, or praising others for a job well done by saying “Good job!” are just two examples of these simple yet profound lessons. The concepts are heartfelt and easy to understand and convey to children and other parents. With so many children being neglected and abused, this book on how parents can love and protect them comes at the perfect time. Love And Protect Your Children: Be A Good Parent by Joan Jessalyn Cox is ideal for parents, grandparents, Christian counselors, and other faith-based helping professionals.

Let Jesus Christ Lead Your Life In 2021


    Lack of Wisdom is Lack of Focus on Truth

     Don’t lose hope, sharpen your understanding!

Mindless hearing is meaningless hearing, it drives error like smoking wheels on a racecar.  

People interpret the words that are spoken to them, or overheard as they are spoken to others very differently.

We expect all people to interpret spoken or written words the same, but they are only interpreted according to the knowledge, understanding, and ability to focus on what is said or written in order to grasp the real meaning of the words as they are intended to be read or heard.

A hearing problem always has some jumbled meaning as well as the blurring of the articulation of the words they strain to hear.

You must also have mental awareness to focus on the spoken or written words to interpret them well. If you are not fully focused on what someone is saying mentally, it’s the same as having a muffler over your ears of understanding.

To hear and receive clearly what is spoken or written your physical ears, must also be equally engaged with the focus in your mind on what is being communicated to you.

When you are unconcerned about who is speaking, and what they are saying, your mind sends you in a different direction from what you are hearing or reading.

Your own thoughts take priority over what you are reading or hearing, you are not interested and veer away from being fully involved in the subject at hand. You are not engaged mentally with what you are hearing or reading, and you lose its accuracy through lack of sound concentration for mental clarity of interpretation of a matter.

To be engaged with what is being said or read, takes four major interactions. You must desire the information, respect the person delivering the information, and hear the information both physically and intellectually. You must be focused on what you are hearing or reading to thoroughly understand what you are being taught.

  • You must desire to know what is being said or read because you want or need the information. You must desire to know, or need the information.
  • You must respect the person delivering the information, you have either read or heard their communication and value it as good advice or someone has given you a good review, or recommendation about the material and the person conveying it. You must respect the person, and value their excellent advice, or discourse on the topic as sound material gathering.
  • You must be open to hearing or reading the communication, and be mentally focused on the material covered to understand the information, and learn its source for the substantiation of a fact driven truth.
  • Your mind must be mentally receptive and your ears hearing clearly before the message is received in its profound entirety. You must be focused, and desire the truth, to be able to retain it.

Our fast moving society not only scans their cell phones, books, articles, and documents but they also scan intellectually what is being said without fully grasping everything that is spoken, then they read a different meaning into what they’ve read than what has actually been conveyed to them.

Emotional hearing contains mental vagueness, more said, less heard, because a word, phrase, or statement activates their own mind to run off in many different directions than hearing and focusing on what is actually said.

When the hearer begins to try to recall what was said, it rarely finds its way to the exact meaning of what was heard. When people presume what is said they did not hear nor interpret what was said accurately.

When something is presumed to be something other than the accurate communication, they are hearing or reading; they are guessing the related matter means something that is usually opposite, twisted, or misleading by the re-interpretation in their mind.

The speaker’s or writers’ words were erroneously interpreted, meaning your truth just became erroneous, to the hearer it is now opposite from what you said, it is a lie.

Mindless hearing is when the hearer imagines what you said, but didn’t intellectually hear the true meaning of what was said. The presumption was wrong; they assumed a different meaning, and turned your truth to a lie, and gave you credit for their twisted version of your truth.

Mindless hearing is meaningless hearing, it drives error like smoking wheels on a racecar.  

You must hear clearly and truthfully to know, and establish the truth in your heart and mind, before you can be renewed, restored, and revived in faith, hope, and charity.

Trials and tribulations are brought on by a need for adjustment in our lives. You can’t correct what you don’t know exists in your life or what hinders you from growing, mentally, spiritually, and emotionally. Maturing emotionally means gaining better behavior responses.  

Perplexing problems happen because of lack of knowledge about the problem or lack of focus on the problem, or lack of addressing or confronting the problem until it reaches the crisis stage and can no longer be ignored.

Faith is focusing on what God does through his perfection, and not what we want to try to do better than God!

When you serve Jesus Christ the God of truth, read, and listen to His words of truth, you understand your weaknesses in your own human ways. Humanity is weak because their self-indulgent desires always leads their long list of priorities and becomes quicksand beneath their feet.

Our Holy God of truth is God because every human being needs someone greater than themselves to lead their life and guide them away from all they follow that causes their moral decay.

Every building must have a good foundation to weather the winds of change. Anyone during the tumult of unrest must have enough mental strength, as well as physical and spiritual strength, to stay sound and steady during chaotic times.

It improves the race of life when you know what you are racing for and always seek to improve at whatever you feel you are called on to do in life. When you yearn to learn to do  better the next time, you will always be searching for ways to improve.

A person who believes all the goodwill of God and seeks to know more about Jesus is the one who knows he can always become better his entire life as he drops the gospel seeds of truth into his heart. It’s the desire to improve that will push us on to attain spiritual maturity.

It’s all in the “will and the want to” as the old expression goes, that will is the desire that will cause people not to settle for less than what the Lord has made available for them to have and achieve.

Don’t lose hope!

It isn’t a good sign if you settle for less than you need, when you are seeking to be qualified to do your best. When you don’t have a desire for something better, you will lose hope, give up and settle for something less than your best.

When you lose hope, you lose your drive, determination, and motivation to succeed.

You can’t drive down the glory (victory) road unless you have been revived in your heart and mind to move forward with great desire and passion.

You must be motivated to accomplish more than what you think is possible. You have to have faith, great faith, mountain moving faith to accomplish all that Jesus Christ sets before you. All because the Lord knows you can do what he requires of you if you will do it!

When you become discouraged you feel hopeless and empty of all you need to rely on to help you become better, in all phases of your life that’s necessary to get a higher standard of living.

You lose purpose, drive, and satisfaction in your life when you lose hope. You become cast down in your demeanor, deflated and overwhelmed by every obstacle that presents itself in life.

You need to have your focus on a better view, value, and vision. You need to have great goals in your heart and confidence in your mind to achieve all higher milestones that you have set before you.

That clearer focus on the truth of the matter concerning anything you are pursuing will carry you further than any questionable ways in life you might choose to travel.

You either have faith and conquer the problems set before you, or the problems set before you will pull you down emotionally and conquer you. You can only restore your faith, hope, and charity, when you thoroughly understand your problem and resolve it.

The word order in scripture defines and refines the exactness of the divinely revealed truth of God’s Word.  You need to read God’s word enough to recognize whether you are being taught truth or error.

Truth is clearly explained in the Holy word of God, but not always clearly understood.

Prayer is the appeal to the Lord to answer our requests to solve problems and complications in our life. By faith, we accept the answer to prayer before we see its completion.

When we pray we are to have confidence in the One who always answers our prayers, Jesus Christ. When we trust Him to answer our prayers we are lifted up in all we pursue in life as we watch our prayers being answered one after the other all our life.

Follow Jesus Christ, during 2021 and believe Him above all you see and hear. Jesus will comfort and guide you through all that may be fearful in the chaotic days ahead. Faith in Jesus Christ is trusting Jesus because He is trustworthy. When you pray expect an answer because with His abundant love for his children Jesus desires to answer your prayer on the wings of your faith in Him.

Jesus Christ is the way maker and he’ll make a way of escape for you!

Worship Jesus the miracle worker knowing that Jesus Christ is still in control of all that is happening and watch him take care of you and answer your prayers.

How Do We Approach Racism Peacefully?

By Joan Jessalyn Cox

“Blessed are the peacemakers for they shall be called the children of God.” Matthew 5:9

What is racism?

How petty would it be to look at someone’s skin color and decide whether they are good or evil. It is a foolish idea that because someone is different in any way that they don’t feel pain, get hurt feelings, can’t understand truth and bleed a different color of blood.
Humanity, people from every nation, has to first understand the value of human life, to place value on all human life. When any individual or group of people believes that human life from a different culture is no longer worth living, we have lost the true value of living. To place value on life is preserving the goodness in humanity, and avoiding the evil that exists to annihilate humanity.
There are good and bad people from every nation. We establish their value by recognizing their merit, how they treat others, how they conduct themselves, and their behavior in relationships with others.
People who are egotistical, self-indulgent, immoral, unkind, jealous, and loaded with guilt themselves, try to blame their own faults on others, and make them a scape-goat for their own failings. Petty people spew hatred toward anyone who is different from themselves.
Petty means small, trivial or insignificant in quantity or quality. Such as: petty grievances. Of contemptibly narrow mind or views: petty outlook. That petty outlook is spiteful, and mean. Isn’t it ironic that it also means of subordinate or inferior rank, meaning that the pettiness in racism comes from a mind that is subordinate to others influence that indoctrinates them to be a racist. A petty opinion of people of another race is inferior in its ability to form correct opinions of, or relate to people who are different, in color and culture.
A petty mind and it’s opinions arise from an insignificant point of view, because one’s color is not showing you who they really are, or where they are coming from in their personal perspective of life. A bias opinion about people of another race remains of no value in determining the merit of their true personality, behavior patterns, or their mental astuteness.
A petulant attitude is unreasonably irritable or ill-tempered, or peevish. It jabs at, and attacks people of other cultures because it makes them feel superior, all the while they are showing how small they are in their inflated attitudes of themselves and they bully others as most cowards do.
A prejudiced person creates havoc wherever they go and drown people in their inane chatter, that is never in true value to anyone around them. It’s their repetition of hatred that diminishes them. If there was anything of value in their thinking it is overshadowed with the hatred that is being expressed in their whole demeanor, when they choose to demean, and bully others around them.
The conflict of racism creates discord, strife, contention, and conflict because it comes forth from hatred. Why hate someone just because of their skin color, or lack thereof? Why abuse others by name calling, assaulting and attacking them simply because you feel you are superior to someone who is different than you? It makes no common sense to judge someone other than the value of what they deliver, in their behavior to others. If they do good, appreciate them, if they do evil steer clear of them and partake not in their evil. Don’t be deceived, people from every nation have good people and bad people to admire or contend with. Evaluate them according to their behavior, the merit of how well or how bad you or the people around you are treated.
What creates racism are lies and the outcome is evil incited and delivered by people who hate because they instigate a warring attitude because of racial lines.
Hatemongers are liars that incite people to respond in confrontations that can wind up in some form of assault from slander, bullying or as dire and final as murder.
Monger is a person promoting something undesirable. Used in combination with another word, such as: scandalmonger; warmonger.
What incites and ignites the fiery flames of racial discrimination comes from any group that chooses to label someone who is not a racist, but uses the “racist” name calling, to slander them. Its hatred of truth and reality that echoes so frequently and loudly that it tattoos the minds of the people who don’t stop to think for themselves.
The liars, blaming the people of truth, jump on the loudest bandwagon of lies and slander to create chaos for the instigators. It doesn’t matter to the rumbling crowd who jumps on the bandwagon of hatemongering, whether they know the truth or not, as long as they spew lies and are hissing hateful speeches.
“If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14 KJV Holy Bible.
How can you confront racism, and begin to change it and create a peaceful atmosphere?

People who know the truth can differentiate between those who are stirring up the protest to cause confusion and hate, from those who are being called a racist, who are instead the people who know the truth and wants to promote peace.
How can you tell the difference between a hate monger, and a peace maker?
You can always tell the hatemonger because they want to incite violence from their conversations, and they always lie. Hateful people lie, and want to destroy someone, or something with vicious aggression.
Peacemakers tell the truth, and want to help people to be happy, content and worry free. When people have peace in their heart and mind, they try to inspire others to be their best, and encourage them in a peaceful and calm way.
A good person with high morals and purpose will want to help all people more than themselves .When in truth they usually have done more for people they have encountered of all races to have a better life, because of the principles they live by and the compassion they feel for others.
“Grace be to you and peace from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.” Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort;”

“Who comfort us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.”                        2 Corinthians 1:2-4 KJV Holy Bible
The most comforting companion you can have is Jesus Christ. You can talk to him day or night. When no one else is around, Jesus is with you waiting to hear your voice, knowing you welcome Him into your presence.
When we were young and attended church we would sing, Jesus Loves the little children, all the children of the world. Red, and yellow, black, brown and white, they are precious in his sight. Jesus Loves the little children of the world. That song was a comfort to the children and the adults, because everyone needs to know they are loved. People need to be comforted and loved from the “cradle to the grave” they need a “good neighbor” to encourage them during chaotic times.
The comfort of Jesus Christ when accepted by faith is a state of ease or well-being in rest and peace. Jesus Christ gives hope to those who are in distress because of sin, sickness, and mental disturbances.
“I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for thou, Lord only makes me dwell in safety.” Psalms 4:8 KJV Holy Bible

Billy Graham a True Friend to Jesus Christ and Christian Statesman

When you welcome someone into your life you want to introduce them to your best friend. How many people worldwide did Billy Graham introduce to Jesus Christ? How many millions felt like Billy Graham was their friend, even though they never met him face to face.
It was always enough that Billy Graham had met Jesus Christ and loved him enough to want to share that Divine loving fellowship with everyone he met.
Billy Graham was a true evangelist, whose life and countenance shown a loyalty to Jesus Christ, many never experienced, and he yearned to let them know about the greatest man who ever lived, Jesus Christ.
We remember the dynamic way he spoke with his compassionate appeal, spreading the truth of God’s word with a gospel message that touched the heart of those who heard him. He preached with the sincere fervor of his evangelical voice compelling his audience to come to Jesus Christ.
All eyes were on Billy Graham, there was no restlessness, no yawning and fading away in the mind, but the Holy Spirit made the message of salvation and deliverance so uplifting, it drew them to Jesus Christ. The beautiful strains of a well-chosen hymn invited them to come to meet Jesus Christ the peacemaker of humanity.
Jesus Christ, the man of truth, divine love and good will was with the evangelist as he stood inviting the audience to accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior of their soul. Jesus stood with Billy Graham as he spoke with hope and heaven spread out before them, as he lifted the name of Jesus Christ up to the world. Billy Graham one of the greatest evangelist in this century.
Jesus Christ was always present for his friend Billy Graham, as Billy Graham stood up for the truth of Jesus Christ. He always made the work of Jesus Christ and salvation the priority in his life. He was a man of God, chosen to do a dynamic work of spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ to millions of people from all nations.
Millions of people can remember the day they sat and listened to Billy Graham passionately present Jesus Christ to them. They can remember the words that tugged at their heart as he so passionately asked them to come forward and accept Jesus Christ as their personal savior.
Billy Graham was a Christian Statesman, a true spokesman for Jesus Christ. He stood head and shoulders above most men of God, because of his steadfast allegiance to Jesus Christ.
He shared the gospel generously to the crowds who listened to him and responded to his truth moving them to flow down to the front to accept Jesus Christ. He was honorable and respectable through his faith, he never wavered, he remained honest, dependable and sincere.
He was always seen as a credible witness for Jesus Christ, because he lived a clean life, that never changed, but remained true to the faith he preached.
He proved the truth of God’s word worked wonders in a consistent clean holy life lived according to God’s principles.
He was a man of true integrity that lived the life that pleased God and brought peace and good will into the lives that turned to Jesus because of his ministry and honorable life of loyalty to Jesus Christ.
He began and ended his Christian life by pleasing God and staying true to Jesus Christ. A man of high morals, great courage and integrity, who took the high road in life through showing others the way of peace, hope and Christian love in a hopeless world.
The gospel message that Billy Graham lived to deliver to the world was intended to bring peace and good will to every accepting heart, through Jesus Christ.
The message and legacy Billy Graham left to every Christian is to keep spreading the gospel message. To stand up for Jesus Christ beginning with prayer for one another, and to carry the gospel message to a world that is lost and dying.
When you make peace with Jesus Christ, and can make peace with yourself, you will be able to bring peace in your environment one courageous Christian at a time.
I wonder, Did Jesus Christ stand up as Billy Graham joined them in heaven, as the angels sang and rejoiced at his home coming? Will that be how we feel when we are called home to heaven?
Can we make a difference, even a small amount that will count before the wrapping up of all times? Can we bring peace to a chaotic world?
Yes! when we can reflect the truth of God, and pattern our life after Jesus Christ, and a dear friend in Jesus Christ service, Billy Graham.
Remember Billy Graham as one of the most honorable and noble Christians to present Jesus Christ to the world.
Remember Billy Graham as you honor him by living a better life with a close fellowship with Jesus Christ.
Remember him happy, because he was a man who pleased God, presented the truth of God and pointed millions to Jesus Christ so they could live a happy life, full of abundant hope and faith.
