    As Christians, we all can make a difference.  It is a moment by moment choice.  Ways to make a difference......(1) - Actively pray that God will use you (2) Have conversations that matter in light of eternity - (3) - Serve others - (4) - Love others - (5) - Show others how your life has changed - (5) - Share the Romans Road with someone each week.
    How not to make a difference - (1) - Getting slack in your prayer life - (2) - Being too afraid to share with others the gospel or what God has done in your life - (3) - Doing only what interests you - (4) Not putting God first in your life.
    Which will you choose today?  What do you want God to do for you?
      He is FAITHFUL and GOOD.  No matter what our circumstances are, He is with us!  Let's continue to be grateful even though it's not Thanksgiving.  We can have Thanksgiving all year long!  Never forget what God has done for you.  Never forget your blessings.  Never forget to share them!
        God has surely been good to all of us!  How great is our God!
