Plant Based Lifestyle

A must read. After being on a feeding tube for so many years and not being able to eat solid foods, I thought I needed something new. So after my beautiful miracle in November 2019, I started 2020 by diving into the plant based lifestyle. I never felt better in my life. Heck, I even ran a 1,000 miles in 10 months. That was after not running for 10.5 years based on my crazy beautiful health journey. Then the 2020 holiday season hit. And after years of not being able to enjoy the treats of the holidays, I indulged. The plant based lifestyle was put on hold. It was put on hold until this past week. After a year of being diagnosed with Covid and double pneumonia, it is time for me to jump back into the plant based lifestyle. Even after just one week back on a plant based diet I am feeling better.

No, I will not be the guy telling everyone they need to go vegan or 100% plant-based. This is a decision I am making for myself. I just know how much better I felt last year when I was living a plant based lifestyle. I do encourage everyone to eat and live well. ~OC

Face of God

When I stand at the foot of the ocean and look in awe. Maybe I’m looking at the face of God.

When I see the beauty of a sunrise on a summer morning. Maybe I’m looking at the face of God.

When I try to count all the stars in the sky. Maybe I’m looking at the face of God.

When I see people worshiping and praising with their arms stretched up to heaven. Maybe I’m looking at the face of God.

When I see my bride smiling back at me. Maybe I’m looking at the face of God.

When I am lifting praises and prayers up to God, maybe I am looking at the face of God. And He’s smiling back at me. ~OC

Know God’s Truth

Today’s a new day! If I know what God says about me, why would I give up God’s truth about me for the opinion of someone who did not create me, die for me, shower me with grace and call me into a personal eternal relationship? ~OC

Promises

Today’s a new day! Do not allow the noise of your past to drown out the peace of your present and the promises of your future. ~OC

In The Well

Today’s a new day! What’s buried deep down in the well, will come up in the bucket.

Translation: What is buried deep in our hearts, will eventually come out in our words and actions. So do not sleep on anger, grudges, or judgment against anyone. Do not let it take root. Deal with it in the light.

But don’t let the passion of your emotions lead you to sin! Don’t let anger control you or be fuel for revenge, not for even a day. Ephesians 4:26

Prayer Warriors

Today’s a new day! Find me one person in the Bible who made a real difference, that did not have a strong prayer life. If we want to make a real difference for the Kingdom, we have to be Strong Prayer Warriors. ~OC

Today

Today’s a new day! Slow down today. Share a smile and kind word. Show grace when it would be easier to judge. Show love even when hate is thrown your way. Don’t miss out on a beautiful interruption. Take time and embrace the moments you will experience today. Have a beautiful day! ~OC

Three Promises

Today’s a new day! Here are three promises from our Lord and Savior.

God will always affirm your worth. Matthew 6:26

God will work things out for your good. Romans 8:28

God is faithful even when we’re not. 2 Timothy 2:13

Love Them

Today’s a new day!

When someone looks different than you. Love them.

When someone has a different faith than you. Love them.

When someone speaks a different language. Love them.

When someone comes from a different country.Love them.

When someone has different political beliefs. Love them.

When someone has a different opinion. Love them.

When someone makes mistakes. Love them. ~OC

End Modern-Day Slavery

Today’s a new day! Freedom is something we all want and everyone deserves. No one would prefer not to be free. Yet, there are an estimated 40 million slaves in the world today. This brutal criminal enterprise generates an estimated $150 billion annually. Every minute of every day, people are being sold into slavery — and it is possible to stop this crime against humanity. I know it’s possible to stop slavery and trafficking in our lifetime, but the anti-trafficking movement needs more people to join the fight. Will you join the fight to end human trafficking? Someone’s life is depending on it. ~OC
