Running the Race

This time last year, doctors shared my body was in a Wasting Syndrome and I only had a few months to live. After battling multiple life threatening health issues for 17.5 years, my body was worn out.Then my beautiful creative healing miracle came on November 3, 2019.

At the start of 2020, I set a goal to run 500 miles in 2020. As of this morning, I have 100 to go.

They who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint. ~Isaiah 40:31

Faith

Today’s a new day! The enemy uses storms to destroy your faith. God uses storms to build your faith. ~OC

Hello Christian

Let us take a walk to your local mall and take a survey. No, not the Census. The survey we are going to take is much more important than the Census. Here we go.

The good thing about our survey is there is only one question. That’s right. We traveled to the mall to ask one question. I believe it’s a pretty important question. Here we go. The one survey question we are asking fellow shoppers is “What Do Think About Christians?” What would be their response?

Group A:

Would they say Christians are such loving people?

Would they say Christians are such giving people?

Would they say Christians are such forgiving people?

Would they say, I wish I could learn more about having a relationship with Jesus?

Group B:

Christians are against everything.

Christians are judgmental.

Christians are angry.

Christians are racist.

Christians are hypocrites.

Let me asked my brothers and sisters in Christ a question. If you personally did this survey, would you end up in Group A or B? I pray my brothers and sisters will take the time to honestly answer this question. Because the way you answer this question could change the world for better or worse.

“So I give you a new commandment: Love each other just as much as I have loved you. For when you demonstrate the same love I have for you by loving one another, everyone will know that you’re my true followers.” ~John 13:34-35

The Madness

Today’s a new day! My brothers and sisters in Christ, maybe our prayers should be less God rescue us from all this madness and more God please use us during this madness. ~OC

Need Some Hope?

As we walked into 2020, most of us were filled with Hope. Do you remember that? As we move into the summer of 2020, a lot of people are starting to lose hope. Just watch the news. Just scroll through social media. All we hear about is how hopeless things are in the world. But I am still hopeful. That’s right. I am still full of hope. Here are some friendly tips to start living a hopeful life again.

* Start limiting your intake of the news and social media.

*Watch one of your favorite movies.

*Read a book.

*Have a Zoom call with your friends.

*Go for a walk.

*Call a friend.

*Watch some old cartoons.

*Volunteer and give back.

*Watch videos of puppies.

*Watch some videos of soldiers coming home.

*Pray, Pray & Pray.

*Spend more time reading the Bible.

*Start a relationship with God or rededicate your life to God. By taking this simple step, your life will be filled with a type of Hope you have never experienced.

I hope you enjoyed some of the above tips. Hopefully they will give you some rest from all the negative news. Oh, but my prayer is that you will embrace God and have Him totally change your life. That is the ultimate Hope. ~OC
