A Monthly Holiday Devotions Ezine with a Thanksgiving devotional for the month of November entitled, In Remembrance.
9 For You, LORD, are most high above all the earth;
You are exalted far above all gods.
10 You who love the LORD, hate evil!
He preserves the souls of His saints;
He delivers them out of the hand of the wicked.
11 Light is sown for the righteous,
And gladness for the upright in heart.
12 Rejoice in the LORD, you righteous,
And give thanks at the remembrance of His holy name.
Psalm 97:9-12, New King James Version
November is that wonderful time of the year when the weather is still pretty nice (I suppose that does depend on where you live), there are still a few brave yellow and red leaves hanging on desparately to the trees, and we still look forward to the upcoming holiday season. This Thanksgiving devotional, from Psalm 97, is meant to be a reflection upon the true Object of our thankfulness.
No matter who we are and where we live, for the Christian there is so much for which we must be thankful. Now, I know, that is a rather bold statement to make, because I really do not know your own personal situation. Neither did the Psalmist!
The truth of the matter is that every single Christian can be confident that God has been and will continue to be right there beside him/her until the day Christ takes them home. In addition, every single Christian can rest in the assurance that everything that God brings upon them, or allows to come upon them, good or bad, is from His gracious hand and is sent for a specific purpose.
I know, it comes as a great surprise, but, we are not really the center of the universe. We are part of a bigger plan which Christ began at Creation and will continue until the day that time ceases to be no more.
These are not mere platitudes, but are rather profound truths for our reflection this Thanksgiving. For what are we thankful?
Our spouse (or lack of one), our families, our homes, our jobs, our treasures--and so the list goes on. While all of this is good and well, let us be reminded of the words of the Psalmist.
Give thanks at the remembrance of His holy name.
Let us not forget to hold in remembrance our Holy God who loved us so much that while we were consumed by our own sins, sent His only Son to suffer and die that He might purchase a people for Himself. When all is said and done, that is really all that matters, is it not?
God Bless You,

where we are currently going through the Bible chronologically, and are nearing the end of the Gospels. Hearing Christ's words near the end of His ministry here are earth, reminds us that we are to be single minded about our own purpose in this life.
That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; and to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.

My Scriptures business is really growing as well; if you have any inkling at all about doing a successfull internet marketing business--it does not come any easier than this!
The first goal of this company, called
is to spread the Gospel to as many people as possible by putting Bible verses on all of the products they sell. The offer an impressive range of natural vitamins and supplements, as well as hair and body care products, and, of course, Bible study CD's.
The cost, therefore is almost non-existent! Just buy products that you would normally buy, from them instead of elsewhere.
If you want to take the time to find your own downline, through friends, neighbors, and cold calling, go right ahead. (I hate doing all of the above.)
But, if you would rather let them do the work for you, you have the opportunity of joining three different advertising co-ops based upon the amount of money you are willing to invest each month. (It's unbelievably cheap! I know because I have been foolish enough to join companies that cost over $100 a month.)
The advertising is done by a professional advertising company who puts ads in Christian magazines and Christian web sites. As people respond to the ads, the people at
build your downline. Your only responsiblity, then, is to call these people so you can answer their questions and encourage them in their own business.
Now that kind of calling I can do! After all, I love to talk, and these people are ready to listen.
I have found that their predictions are very accurate, my downline is growing. God is so good!
Everything this company has said is true; I am getting about the number of people in my downline as they said I would. (It's nice to know someone who actually tried it out before you take the plunge!)
Have a great October--I will see you in November!
God Bless You,
