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.”

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.

Be Ready Always...

to give a reason for the Hope that you have (1 Peter 3:15).  When you can’t share the gospel with your words, share it by leaving tracts that tell people about God's grace.

When leaving a tract, always be diligent to pray about the short gospel message. Pray that it be found by someone who is in need of Jesus’ saving grace, and pray that the person will have a tender heart and open ears to receive the gift Jesus desires to give them.  

By the power of the Holy Spirit, even a small tract can help in turning a broken sinner from darkness to light.
