To God Be the Glory! I have so enjoyed reading different web blogs and postings on Facebook this month regarding Thanksgiving. As you probably already know the news media and other reporting resources would have us all convinced that there is no one left living in the good old USA who is grateful and thankful to God for their blessings. The media tries to tell us that the old traditional values are dead and gone…..But, from the many writings I have read this month…I am convinced they are the ones who are wrong!
I believe America is still being held together by a core of faithful and committed Christian believers who can tell you to whom they give credit for the many blessings bestowed upon their lives. True, the news media does not “cover” the Good News of the Gospel like they cover all the bad news in the world! So, we are bombarded into believing the propaganda that “everyone” and “everything” is bad.
I am reminded that God looks on the inward of man and not the outward. He sees the heart and knows our ever thoughts and ways. To God Be the Glory! I know my Redeemer liveth!!
As we move into the Christmas season, I want to reflect this month upon the “good” news of the season. News like my church taking up coats and clothing to give to the needy. News like our yearly Lottie Moon missionary offerings that provides support for missionaries all over the world. Good news like the Samaritan Purse (Shoe Boxes) given to million of children all over the globe…Oh, how I love this ministry! God bless Franklin Graham!!
Many in the media arenas would have us looking down and feeling down-troddened and defeated. But, To God Be the Glory….I Am on the Winning Side! And, if you are a child of God’s through His precious Son, Jesus Christ…you are on the winning side as well! Now, there’s something to be thankful for!!!!
Remember, God Loves You!
