Happy Thanksgiving Eve!

GUWG-Give-Thanks-2013THANKS-O-RAMA 2014 continues here on GUWG.

It’s Wednesday. According to lots of polls and studies, it’s the worst day of the week and the day on which people do the most whining. In other words, it’s the day on which we tend to be the least thankful.

Let’s live differently today. Don’t whine — WORSHIP!

Give Thanks Not Grumbles

It’s THANKS-O-RAMA 2014 here on GUWG, where from now through Thanksgiving Day we’re focusing on giving God thanks for his awesome, astounding, astonishing blessings.

Here’s a pair of verses I should force myself to repeat every 0.3 seconds:

THANKS-O-RAMA 2014

Today, we’re kicking off THANKS-O-RAMA 2014 here on GUWG, where from now through Thanksgiving Day we’ll be thanking God for all His amazing, astounding, astonishing blessings.

If I’m honest, most of my prayers go something like this:

(Something bad happens.)

Me: Help!

(God answers my prayer. Then something bad happens.)

Me: Help!

(God answers my prayer. Then something bad happens.)

Me: Help!

(Repeat the above ad nauseam)

What’s missing? The THANKS! part.

I AM

GUWG-I-AMWe continue our journey into every word spoken by Jesus in the Gospels to help us all KNOW JESUS MORE NOW.

We’re taking a deeeeep dive into this rather provocative question: Who did Jesus say he is?

We started with these three answers: Son of Man, Son of God and Messiah.

Now we’re looking at eight “I am” statements Jesus made that further define who he is. We’ve covered seven: (1) the Bread of Life, (2) the Light of the World, (3) the Gate, (4) the Good Shepherd, (5) the Resurrection and the Life, (6) the Way, the Truth and the Life and (7) the True Vine.

Our final “I am” is “I AM!”:

The True Vine

Jesus next “I am” is from his final week on earth. He’s giving final instructions to his disciples:
