Day 13 – 23 Days of Thanksgiving – What if I stumble?

I was driving home from work this evening when I was reminded of the song “What If I Stumble” by DC Talk. What this video doesn’t have is the opening spoken words heard on the album. The greatest single cause of atheism in the world today Is Christians who acknowledge Jesus with their lips ThenContinue reading “Day 13 – 23 Days of Thanksgiving – What if I stumble?”

Day 13 – 23 Days of Thanksgiving – Be careful

I’ve been talking a lot during this series about the small things. About how we can do very little things that could change the world. At church this weekend (sermon isn’t posted yet, I will link to it when it is), God spoke to me in a way he often does, giving me information orContinue reading “Day 13 – 23 Days of Thanksgiving – Be careful”

Day 12 – 23 Days of Thanksgiving – Training is Everything

I talk about the small things a lot on here. It’s a revelation I came to about myself a year or so ago. I tend to think big, I have an idea and it has suddenly blown into a major event. I have good intentions through it all, but because I’ve set my sights soContinue reading “Day 12 – 23 Days of Thanksgiving – Training is Everything”

Day 11 – 23 Days of Thanksgiving – Little talk with Jesus

  So I stumbled across this old video and I just love it. I loved Hee-Haw growing up so seeing this brought back some great memories. The lyrics to this song have some great truths in there, but one of my favorite lines is; You will find a little talk with Jesus makes it rightContinue reading “Day 11 – 23 Days of Thanksgiving – Little talk with Jesus”

Day 10 – 23 Days of Thanksgiving – Do Something

I’ve heard the argument many times, “How can God let these terrible things happen?” You may question why there are so many homeless, or sick, or impoverished, or enslaved or whatever. People shout at God in anger wondering, “God why don’t you do something.” What if he already did? What if you are his solution?Continue reading “Day 10 – 23 Days of Thanksgiving – Do Something”

Day 9 – 23 Days of Thanksgiving – Thoughts and Prayers

There’s been some tragedies around the United States recently, and I see so many people on social media post, “Sending our thoughts and prayers.” I was just thinking the other day that at times this seems somewhat meaningless at times. Are people really thinking and praying? Or are they just saying that? I’ve always struggledContinue reading “Day 9 – 23 Days of Thanksgiving – Thoughts and Prayers”

Day 8 – 23 Days of Thanksgiving – Do you love your enemies?

So last time we talked about loving your neighbors, which at times can be hard enough. But what Jesus tells us to do in the 6th chapter of Luke may be even more difficult. But I say to you who hear, love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curseContinue reading “Day 8 – 23 Days of Thanksgiving – Do you love your enemies?”

Day 7 – 23 Days of Thanksgiving – Do you love your neighbor?

This Thanksgiving you may be surrounded by the family and friends that you love. But perhaps there is that one person, that “crazy uncle” that you just can’t stand. He’s rude and vulgar, you haven’t seen eye to eye with them for many years and in fact you’ve had full-fledged arguments with him where thingsContinue reading “Day 7 – 23 Days of Thanksgiving – Do you love your neighbor?”

Day 6 – 23 Days of Thanksgiving – Are you in the game?

What is more iconic for some on Thanksgiving than football. Despite all the controversy around the NFL this season, there is something traditional about watching the Detroit Lions after dinner. I love those old school style football teams whether high school, college or professional. I’ve always loved Vince Lombardi, there was a football coach. OneContinue reading “Day 6 – 23 Days of Thanksgiving – Are you in the game?”

Day 5 – 23 Days of Thanksgiving – What to talk about

This Thanksgiving, there will be plenty of opportunity to talk with your family and friends. Waiting for the food to be done, sitting around the table eating, and relaxing after the meal provides ample time for conversation of all sorts. Remember too that you will most likely be enjoying the day with people of manyContinue reading “Day 5 – 23 Days of Thanksgiving – What to talk about”
