Count Your Blessings
How many things do you have to be thankful for? Perhaps it has been a while since you sat down and really considered that question. If so, I would encourage you to take the time—today—to create a list of everything for which you are thankful.
What types of things will you put on your list? Most people begin with houses, cars, and other possessions. Next on the list might be family and friends. Don’t forget to include important but often-overlooked items such as health, freedom, and even life itself.
Wages or Blessings?
If you are struggling over whether or not to include something on your list, perhaps it is good to ask yourself: “Did I earn it, or was it given to me?” Some would say that if you work and earn a paycheck, you have no reason to be thankful for it—after all, you earned it, right? On the other hand, should you not be thankful for your abilities, for health, for the job itself, as well as for everything else which makes your job possible?
Every good thing we receive is a gift from God—a true blessing—for which we owe Him thanks. The Bible says, “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father” (James 1:17). Even more than this, according to God’s Word we should be thankful for everything that comes our way—even difficult things: “In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God” (1 Thessalonians 5:18).
The Most Important Blessing
I hope that when your list is complete, it will contain the most important blessing of all—eternal life. Have you received this gift of God’s grace? If not, let me assure you that we need to receive it, we can receive it, and we may know we have received it.
First of all, why do we need eternal life? We need it because we “all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23). We need it because, due to our disobedience, the only things we have earned from God are death and judgment: “The wages of sin is death;” “after this the judgment” (Romans 6:23; Hebrews 9:27).
Secondly, we can receive eternal life from God as a gift: “The gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord” (Romans 6:23). Salvation from sin and its penalty cannot be bought or earned or achieved: “By grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: not of works, lest any man should boast” (Ephesians 2:8,9). Many people mistakenly believe they can earn salvation, or if they are “good enough” they can merit a home in Heaven. But God says there is only one way to Heaven—and Jesus is the way: “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me” (John 14:6).
Lastly, we can know that we are saved—we can know that we have eternal life. Jesus Christ, the Son of God, came to this earth to suffer, bleed, and die in our place—as our substitute. Jesus bore the penalty for our sin, and waits to save all who acknowledge their need of Him, turn to Him in repentance, and trust Him as their Savior. “These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life” (1 John 5:13).
Receive God’s Gift Today
Have you turned to God as a guilty sinner in need of a Savior? Have you abandoned any hope of saving yourself and placed your full faith and trust in Jesus Christ, the Savior of sinners? If not, I urge you to do so today. Jesus died for you. He lives for you. He is waiting for you to come to Him: “him that cometh to Me I will in no wise cast out” (John 6:37).
It’s a good thing to be thankful. It’s a better thing to thank God for your blessings. But the best thing of all is to know Him personally and experience the joy of Him washing away your sins, making you fit for Heaven, and giving you a brand new life in Him!

What is imprinting?
Many of our items can be personalized just for you. These items have a space reserved where we can add contact information for your church, ministry, or business.
How do I order imprinting?
Gospel Tracts: Most of our gospel tracts can be personalized. When reviewing the product options, you will see an option called “Add Imprinting (+$4)”. Selecting this option will reveal a form where you can enter the desired text (and optional logo). All imprints are reviewed by our staff before printing.
Calendar Cards: All of our calendar card tracts are available with imprinting. You can specify up to 4 lines of text to be custom-printed on the cards for you. Simply type your text in the form that appears when ordering these cards.
Other Items: You can also order personalized postcard tracts, and most items in our print-on-demand tract library are available with personalization. However, please note that Tract Assortments, Motion Tracts, Mini Tracts, booklets, and some Believers Tracts cannot be imprinted.
More questions about imprinting
How much does tract imprinting cost? The imprinting charge is $4 per pack for tracts. There are no setup fees or minimum or maximum quantity limits, so when you order an imprinted item, feel free to order as few or as many copies as you want.
How much does calendar card imprinting cost? The imprinting charges are already built into the pricing for personalized calendar cards. There are no additional charges or fees.
How long will it take to get my imprinted items? Tract imprints up to 3,000 copies (per title) require 2-3 business days for printing. Tract imprints of 3,000 or more copies (per title) usually require 2-3 weeks for printing. Imprinted calendar cards are usually shipped in about 1 week.
Where does my information get printed? Every tract has a reserved space on the back (approximately 1" tall x 3" wide) for imprinting. The calendar card has a reserved space on the calendar side (beside the year). Your imprint will go in this space. When ordering, take a look at the live preview shown on-screen.
How much text can my imprint include? There is room for up to 5 lines of text on Gospel Tracts (4 lines on calendar cards), with approximately 40 characters per line. Adding more text would require the text to be so small that we don't recommend it.
What if I need to include more information? Take a look at our customized invitation tracts. They allow for much more information (service times, custom photos, etc.). For the ultimate in personalization, we can even create a fully-custom tract just for you.
Can I add a logo or image? Yes, you can upload your own custom logo or image. Remember that adding an image to your imprint reduces the amount of room available for text, and you should limit your text accordingly.
Do I have to enter my information over and over? Nope. If you are ordering multiple items with the same imprint, you can enter all of the details with the first item, and then enter “same” on Line 1 for the others. Likewise, if you have ordered imprinted tracts in the past and want to use the same information, simply enter “same as before”. All orders are carefully reviewed, and we will link everything together for you before printing.
