Lorrie Flem
EternalEncouragement.com
As Christians who are also Americans, when we celebrate Thanksgiving each year, we try to conjure up the same gratefulness to God that the Pilgrims and many other founding fathers felt. Because of them we have a traditional Thanksgiving holiday and the concepts of self-government, a "hard-work" ethic, self-reliant communities, and devout religious faith. But, are we really celebrating the way our forefathers did? Download Handouts for Subscribers Only Audio Sample  Coming Soon!

Putting More Christ in Christmas If you look in any store or public place, or in any home around Christmas time, it is obvious to see that the true meaning of Christmas has become obscured. Yes, the materialism and commercialization of Christmas makes me sad but my objection is to how the "true meaning of Christmas" popularly offered in its place, obscures the true meaning of Christmas.

The Good and the Best in Our Holiday Busyness Can our busy schedules with all their noble goals sometimes run amuck with God's true agenda? If so, our good intentions in celebrating occasions like Thanksgiving and Christmas need to be submitted to God's better judgment. Busyness is not always God's heart. Though at times difficult to discern, His plan is always perfect and always best for us. But be aware, the implications here are far reaching. Download Session Handout

Don’t be weighed down, held back from being your best, frustrated in your relationships, or allow yourself to become spiritually unhealthy.
