Today’s a new day! Do not live for earthly applause and miss out on whispers from heaven. ~OC
Today’s a new day! Are you looking for significance in your career? Being rich? Being the smartest person in the room? Being famous? Being popular? If your significance is defined in comparing yourself with others, you’ll always be chasing after it. Only to come up empty.
But when Jesus declares you significant, your days of chasing it are over. You’re Significant. Accept it. Embrace it. Live in it. ~OC
Where you going? Don’t leave me. Where you going? I am comfortable with you. Why do you want to leave? Don’t you feel comfortable anymore? I like it here. Why do things need to change? I guess you have outgrown me. Where you going? Wait, don’t leave. I am holding onto the good times. I can’t let go. I guess I don’t want to let go. Where you going? Why do things need to change? Wait! Where you going? You don’t miss me? I miss you. At least I think I do. Wait! Where you going? Can’t we talk about it? It’s complicated I know. Wait! Where you going? I keep holding on to the good times. Sometimes, I even think about the bad times. Wait! Where you going? Is it time to say goodbye? Maybe. Wait! Where you going? ~OC
Today’s a new day!
God’s Plan-Not Mine
God’s Will-Not Mine
God’s Glory-Not Mine
God’s Word-Not Mine
God’s Timing–Not Mine
Today’s a new day! Does our attitude toward those who don’t believe draw them to Jesus? Or does it feel them with rejection and push them away from Jesus? ~OC
Today’s a new day! Jesus gives us every breath that comes from our lungs. He gives us every beautiful heartbeat we take for granted. Jesus gives us every tasty meal we enjoy. He gives us every good thought and idea. Every ounce of love comes from Him. Every beautiful relationship in our lives comes from Jesus. Our Savior owes us nothing. Everything we have is because of His grace, love and undeserved blessings. -OC
Once again I am wrecked by what I see happening in Atlanta, Virginia and Minneapolis. I keep believing that one day, I will wake up and not hear about another person of color being victimized by the actions of a person filled with hate or a person quick to judge. But sadly, that seems like a dream. But hey, I am a dreamer.
So I will continue praying for my brothers and sisters of color. Praying that as you walk down the street, people will not clutch their purses or bags a little tighter. Praying as you visit a place of business, you will not be hassled. I pray if for some reason you are pulled over by the police, you will be treated with respect. I am saddened that I have to pray this prayer every day for my brothers and sisters of color. But I will not stop praying. I will not stop speaking out against injustice. I will continue to stand with you. ~OC
Today’s a new day!! The brightness of our light is not determined by how loud we talk, how big our platform is or how famous we are. No, the brightness of our light is determined by how loud our behavior speaks. The consistency of the decisions we make. Our commitment to truly follow Jesus and serve others. The decision to do the right thing regardless of what the world thinks. How bright is your light? ~OC
If you have moments of doubt, you are not alone. There are thousands of us. No millions. Keep Reaching Out.
If you have moments of feeling lost, you are not alone. There are thousands of us. No millions. Keep Reaching Out.
If you have moments of dealing with fear, you are not alone. There are thousands of us. No millions. Keep Reaching Out.
If you have moments of depression, you are not alone. There are thousands of us. No millions. Keep Reaching Out.
If you have moments of anger, you are not alone. There are thousands of us. Keep Reaching Out.
Whatever your dealing with in life you are not alone. Never stop reaching out. ~OC
Today’s a new day! Life is about people. Loving and serving others with the love of Jesus. It’s not all about the big gatherings at church or some other big gathering. No, it’s about truly loving our family, friends, coworkers, neighbors or the stranger at the store. ~OC
