I hope you’ve been just as blessed this year as I have!
Well – I certainly DO have much to be THANKFUL for, yet at the same time I have instances where I can be saddened… But I do my level best to focus on the positives rather than the negative, you all should know my story/testimony well enough if you’ve followed me long enough.
If you don’t, well just go back and search for it.
Then you might understand why somethings this Holiday season is a bit hard for me, but I’m not going to talk about those things in this post. Today, I want to talk to you about some things on my heart that I might of left out during my latest Radio Show,.
This is supposed to be the season of love, peace, joy, happiness, GIVING, Thankfulness (Hence the term “THANKS-GIVING”) Yet somehow each year more and more people seem to forget the true meaning of these holiday’s altogether, the true meaning of the season and as matter of fact, the true meaning of life itself.
Whatever happened to people just loving each other? Giving without expecting anything in return, thanking God no matter what their status in life? Enjoying the smallest things.
I believe it is something that we as a country, a society and even as a world have fallen much too far away from. But I will not fret, I will not worry too much, because I choose hope, I choose to believe that there are people who care about each other. They love each other and want to make a difference, I choose to believe that life can be better and it is when we start to praise the good and vilify the bad more often.
When We Get Back To The Scripture:
…It is more blessed to give, than to receive. – Acts 20:35 K.J.V.
How true this is, and not just because it makes you feel all good inside, It is ok for that to happen. But it is better to give than to receive because sometimes we just have too much than we even realize, sometimes we forget that and we begin to start taking things for granted.
So we have to learn to get back to the basics, we have to learn to give back to those less fortunate. We have to learn the true meaning of life again, the true meaning of the holiday seasons and the true meaning of what it means to be a decent human being again if we ever were considered “decent” to begin with.
We have to reach a point where we say, “ENOUGH” I have had it with all this garbage in the world, I’ve had it with all the hate, I’ve had it with all the greed, the commercialization of holidays and I’ve had it with the deterioration of our world.
I’m going to make a change for once.
BE THE DIFFERENCE:
It is our INDIVIDUAL choices, the way WE live OUR lives that MAKE the DIFFERENCE. – Glenn Beck
Yes, I did just make a Glenn Beck quote. Now I know a lot of people don’t like him, and I myself personally do not agree with him on some things. But he shares amazing stories, he shares the truth and I have followed him for quite sometime now and even researched him and he usually knows what he’s talking about and his “Glenn Beck Predictions” usually always come true.
Now, time to list all of the things I am thankful for this, THANKSgiving!
I THANK GOD FOR:
- My Family (Grandparents and Uncle)
- My Friends (Those Here In America & Across The World)
- His Sufficient Grace
- Being Able To Be Born In America
- Getting To Meet Chuck Norris!
- The Republican MidTerm Victory!
- Love (True love not a wishy washy love)
- Life (To Simply Be Breathing)
- EVERYTHING (And SO much MORE)
I had to stop with “EVERYTHING” because really, I could get into a long thing of all the things we should thank God for everyday but I believe if we just thank him constantly for everything then he will understand just what we mean.
After all, he knows the exact number of hairs on our heads! Thanks for reading dearly beloved brothers and sisters in Christ!
Until Next Time…
