I give you 1000 Gifts – Thanksgiving and forgo the scheduled 1000 Gifts Devotional from ourDevotional study, titled One Thousand Gifts: Reflections On Finding Everyday Graces by Ann Voskamp. I preferred to wish you a Blessed Thanksgiving and share some gifts with you for your Holiday. Above all, remember that Thanksgiving is first directed to God, the creator of all mankind. Then you can wish Thanksgiving to those you know and love as well as to those you do not know. Our Devotional study will resume on Tuesday, November 29, 2016.
I had some Thoughts For Thanksgiving: WWJD? in this situation? My epiphany occurred after listening to this video, today, by Chris Lewis. He doesn’t speak of God, but through his hectic lifestyle developed Depression which led him to decide to simplify his existence. He certainly appears to live like Christ. I can identify because with my recent Depression, I questioned many things about my life. We each need to journey through what is vital to our life and what just draws us away from our purpose and center.
Aren’t all of us searching for our true purpose and the meaning of our existence on this planet on this day and this time? I know that I am. Certainly, we all ask that proverbial question, “Why am I here?”
Sometimes I wonder if today’s technology doesn’t add too many complications and distractions. Has it blinded us to what is directly in front of our eyes? Do we believe everything we hear or see on the internet or television as gospel truth? I know in the back of my mind, I am thinking, “What is their agenda? Why are they saying what they are?”
What would your life be like if you turned off all the electronic devices and simplified life for a time? An hour?…A day?…A month?…I lifetime?…
I don’t know what your thoughts are, but this really gives me pause. WWJD?
21 Jesus said to him, “If you want to be perfect, go, sell what you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow Me.”
