THE GRINCH (VIRUS) THAT STOLE THANKSGIVING
11/23/2020 3:45:00 PM by: Leona Choy

A Fresh Slice of Daily Bread

I just heard that the governors of some states declared that their citizens should cancel traditional Thanksgiving plans because of Covid! Their grinchiness is supposedly to protect each other from catching the virus. But behind the scenes we know that the real source of thievery is not the government mandate or the virus but the devil.

Jesus, the final authority, clearly stated, “The devil comes only to steal...” (John 10:10). This year he already tried to steal Passover and Easter as well as several secular and patriotic celebrations. But he can only steal from us if we let him. It is far above his pay grade to be able to steal Thanksgiving!

He was almost successful to turn Thanksgiving from a religious observance for gratitude to God into an occasion to overindulge ourselves with turkey and dressing and mashed potatoes, cranberries and pumpkin pie and all the trimmings, (can't forget the green bean casserole!). Then the grinchy devil thought up “Black Friday” to caboose Thanksgiving with its panic shopping frenzy for incredible bargains during which people act like wild animals moving in for the kill.

We can save the true Thanksgiving spirit by recognizing that it is not a date on the calendar but an attitude of gratitude which can't be stolen. It is a matter of the heart that must accompany all petitions we make to God. “Pray and in everything give thanks, for this is God's will for you” (1 Thess. 5;18; Eph. 5:20). Being thankful is no small thing. Jesus commended the one leper who returned to thank Him out of ten who were healed.

Grinches of any kind, human or the dark angels and all the minions under the devil's control which try to assail us are no match for the bubbling of joyful gratitude of the Holy Spirit who lives within every child of God. The Psalms are overflowing with admonitions to thank God. “Let us come before His presence [and enter His gates] with thanksgiving” (Ps. 95:2; 100:4).

To learn to say “Thank you” is one of the first things parents try to teach their little children when they are given something. And the child dutifully parrots “Thank you” upon being prompted, but next time the youngster might have to be reminded again. We grown-ups forget to say “Thank you” sometimes too, don't we?

When I awoke this morning, I was impressed to declare today a special Thanksgiving. Not like the first one in 1863 which Abraham Lincoln initiated. Mine isn't a national holiday but a deliberate, personal, “anti-Grinch gratitude day.” Of course, I already do thank God on a regular basis. Nevertheless, I want officially, between God and me, to be on the watch to thank Him for everything I see and feel and experience and encounter and think about today—people, places, and things. I want to notice them. To acknowledge them. To name each blessing in detail. And say “Thank You, Lord!”

Now to get started. Thank You, Lord, that I woke up to another new day; for life itself; for life in Christ, for His Holy Spirit living in me; that I slept well on a luxurious queen size mattress and only got up twice; that my CPAP system worked for my sleep apnea; that I can breathe throughout the day without extra oxygen; that I can put my feet on the floor, with strength to stand up and walk unassisted, although unsteadily; that most of the bodily organs in my "earth suit" are still working after so many years of service; (and even for those that are kinda sluggish but still chugging along!); for healings and recoveries when I have needed them; as a super-vulnerable that I've not had Covid; for the assurance of Your Presence and something good to look forward to today in Your plan for my life; for a sound mind and fairly good memory; for...oh, so much You've blessed me with....and I've barely taken a few steps from my bedroom!

Why is this such a big deal for me?

A year ago this week I underwent successful major surgery and celebrated Thanksgiving in the hospital. I'm thankful to be living my 96th year on earth! Yes, it IS a big deal to celebrate each day as a loving, generous gift from God. Each day is a bonus day to do His will on earth and to please Him. How about you? Would you like to try an “anti-grinch gratitude day”?

Amen. Yes, thank You, Father!

I'm praying that God will see you and your husband through all these sacred and secular holidays with great joy regardless of being by yourselves--God is with you in a special way and His plans for your writing ministry in the New Year will surprise you. Trust Him for something new, as yet unrevealed.God has your situation well in hand.

Meredyth Witmer From Lancaster, Pa At 11/24/2020 12:28:25 PM

Thanks, Leona, that was an interesting reminder to be thankful. Have you ever read Ann Voskamps' book, "one thousand gifts"? It is an excellent book encouraging us to keep track daily of the blessings God has bestowed on us. Do have a happy Thanksgiving!! God is so good! Love, Meredyth

Reply by: Leona Choy

I don't know of the book, Meredyth, sound interesting and a wonderful reminder for us. May Christmas and the New Year be a special, unexpected blessing in some way for you, that will bring rejoicing. God loves to surprise you. He has you in His heart.

Dot From Dan At 11/24/2020 11:03:18 AM

Oh, Leona. I second the motion! Great thoughts once more. See you on Facebook. We have to make the most of our remaining time. Love Babydot. Will you wear a mask as you celebrate?

Reply by: Leona Choy

No,I don't wear a mask unless I must go into some establishment that mandates it. I personally don't believe masks are any protection, and breathing one's own oxygen is counter-productive. We are only being tested to how far we will allow ourselves to be controlled.

Reen Markland From Stephens City At 11/24/2020 10:47:40 AM

Every day is indeed a gift, Leona! YOU are a gift to me! Joining you in celebrating the anniversary of your successful surgery and remarkable recovery as well as the blessings of each new day since then. Hugs & prayers, Reen

Reply by: Leona Choy

I thank the Lord in turn for your kind personal help during my time of need. The Lord has given me one of the most productive years of my life in 2020, not minding the isolation or the restrictions. I pray for you and your family some special blessings you didn't anticipate for this coming year.

Mark From Rockville, Maryland At 11/24/2020 10:03:13 AM

Thank you, Leona. A great and timely artcile to remind all of us the true meaning of Thanksgiving, and to defeat the devil's scheme of tryingg to "steal" our joy from offering thanksgibing to our Lord. Anyway, HAPPY AND BLESSSED THANKSGIVING TO YOU!

Reply by: Leona Choy

Dear Mark, and may Christmas and the New Year bring some unexpected joy into your life. God is continuing to give you opportunities to serve Him and to witness to others, especially in your writing. I thank God for our long-term friendship.

Lindsay Van Sicklen From Arkadelphia Arkansas At 11/24/2020 9:28:00 AM

Amen, Leona. Grateful for you and the gifting God’s given you to encourage the Saints.

This is a belated answer, and I so enjoyed talking by phone recently. Hope you can check out Dr. Ed Choy (grandson) and Restoration Church, Maryland, on Facebook as well as Youtube. Today Dec. 23 was his final devotion of the year until Jan.4 due to taking his family on vacation. Youtube has their archives.

Therese Briggs From Lowell, OR At 11/24/2020 9:13:04 AM

HAPPY THANKSGIVING LEONA! Yes we counter this communist theory trying to take over with THANKSGIVING TO GOD?????????????? Daily our hearts turn to Him for the gift of Life and LOVE!! For all he did by sending us Jesus and calling us His children ?????? Gid bless you for each of your loving words

Reply by: Leona Choy

God bless you and your family with some unexpected joys and surprises in this coming year. Watch and see how God will work even through the current chaos and confusion. No "Humbug" can destroy the real meaning of Christ and Christmas!
