5 Steps to Saving Money Online at Christmas

The following are 5 simple steps that you can take to save money at Christmas on your Christmas presents:

1. Make a People List
Make a list of all the people you would like to give gifts at Christmas from your many relatives, friends, work mates and acquaintances who have assisted you in one way or another during the year. After making your list, edit it like you would edit a wedding list to ensure you do not spend your hard earned money wisely and meaningfully. 

2. Add Christmas Gifts to your People List
Add the Christmas presents you would like to give each and every person on your People List next to their name. Go through the updated list and see which gifts you can buy in bulk and which gifts you can make at home. For example you can buy scented bath salts in bulk and pour them into dainty containers to give to the people on your People List who love taking scented baths. 

3. Make a Website List
Make a list of all the websites that can help you save money at Christmas by offering sales, product promotion deals, 50% discounts, coupons, free gifts and free shipping on the items you want to give as Christmas presents. Examples of such websites include http://www.christmas-savings.com/ and websites of large stores such as Walmart, Sears and Target. You can also surf sites which compiles deals from many vendors to simplify your shopping.   

4. Add Christmas Gifts to your Website List
On your Website List and adjacent to each website, add the Christmas gift that you can buy from it, its price and any other perk the site is offering such as a free gifts with purchase which make economical stocking fillers. 

5. Make your money saving decision
Go through your Website List and for each Christmas present, choose the website that offers you the highest quality product at the lowest price, preferably with free gift wrapping and free shipping.

Your Life Is Your Ministry And Your Storm Is Your Message

Buy Your Life Is Your Ministry And Your Storm Is Your Message from Amazon 


Have you been asking God to show you your ministry so that you can serve you and requesting Him to remove the problems in your life so that you can serve Him better?
If you have, understand that your life is really your ministry and your storm (problems) contains your message that your ministry is to preach and you may have to preach it without a microphone.
Learn from Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego's storm in Daniel 3 when King Nebuchadnezzar built the golden image and ordered everyone to worship it or be thrown into a hot furnace for they decided to remain faithful to God. They then told the King that their God could deliver them from his furnace, but even if He chose not to deliver them, they still would not worship the golden image. (Daniel 3:17-18)
For choosing to remain faithful to God, they were then thrown and Fell down bound into the midst of the burning fiery furnace. (Daniel 3:23) After being thrown in, King Nebuchadnezzar and his counselors continued to watch them and what they saw was the message that the ministry of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego delivered.
They saw four free and unbound men. Men who were walking in the midst of the flames and not lying on the floor of the furnace. This sight shocked the King Nebuchadnezzar and convinced Him that the God of Israel, the God of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego was the true God for he said, Blessed be the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, who has sent His angel, and delivered His servants who trusted in Him and refused to serve or worship any god, except their own God. Therefore I make a decree, that any people, nation, and language who speak anything amiss against the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, shall be cut in pieces, and their houses shall be made a dunghill: because there is no other God who can deliver like this. (Daniel 3:28-29)
Therefore, we can see that the ministry of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego was actually how they lived their lives in their storm by walking with the Son of God. And, they were able to preach to King Nebuchadnezzar and his counselors their message which was that their God was the only true God worth worshipping. They were also able to preach this message without a microphone by simply walking with the Son of God through their fiery trial.
Therefore, understand that your life is your ministry and your storm whether it is a fiery financial or health or marital crisis, is your message. Then preach your message by continuing being faithful to God as you walk with Jesus Christ through your trials regardless of whether He cools it today or lets your enemies heat it up 7 more times by compounding your problems.
Preach your message by being faithful to God in your trials because how will unbelievers like King Nebuchadnezzar and his counselors know that your God can deliver you if they do not see Him delivering you from your fiery hot tribulations?
