Thanksgiving is approaching fast.  Especially at this time of year, we pause to think about our lives.  We consider all that we have to be thankful for.  It’s a good time to examine our lives and consider the choices we make that bring blessings and also those that are harmful and some even sinful.

Let’s use an illustration to examine our lives.  Think of a water glass as representing your life.  The “water” that fills the “glass” is that which fills your life.  Now think about the “water.”  Is it clean, fresh water? Or is it muddy water?  We all make choices about the kind of “water” that fills our “glass.”

Acceptance or rejection

Approval or condemnation

Blessings or misfortunes

Boldness or timidity

Cheer or misery

Comfort or torment

Consolation or affliction

Contentment or anguish

Devotion or disregard

Discretion or indiscretion

Enthusiasm or indifference

Faithfulness or apostasy

Fellowship or enmity

Fidelity or disloyalty

Friendship or estrangement

Knowledge or ignorance

Love or heartache

Gentleness or hardness

Godliness or godlessness

Good fortune or calamity 

Goodness or corruption

Graciousness or conditionality 

Health or sickness

Holiness or wickedness

Honor or dishonor

Hope or despair

Humility or pride

Joys or troubles

Meekness or arrogance

Obedience or sin

Orthodoxy or heresy

Passion or apathy

Peace or conflict

Piety or impiety

Prosperity or poverty

Purity or impurity

Regard or neglect

Relief or trauma

Respectfulness or disrespect

Reverence or irreverence

Right or wrong

Righteousness or blasphemy

Sincerity or insincerity

Successes or failures

Tenderness or roughness 

Thoughtfulness or thoughtlessness

Truth or lies

Wisdom or stupidity

Worship or neglect

A Choice

You get the idea. The question is not whether your “glass” (your life) is half empty or half full. The real question is, what fills your glass?

We all choose what fills our glass. 

 Watch this short video and be inspired by knowing that because you are in Christ your glass is always half filled with exactly what you need. In Christ, we have everything we need.  So we should always give thanks for our “glass” and praise our God.  We should always let His fullness in our “glass” direct that which fills the rest.  

I will praise the name of God with a song, and will magnify Him with thanksgiving. Ps 69:30

Fifty three years ago, on November 22nd — only six days before Thanksgiving that year, America’s  President was slenced by an assasin’s bullet.  Read what he would have said, if the sin of murder had not claimed his life.
