Dear Jesus, your amazing words speak of healing and restoration and I thank you for the miracles and healings you still perform today. Today I claim those promises over every one that needs a healing touch from you. I believe in the healing power of faith and prayer and I ask you to begin your mighty work in the lives of those needing to feel your healing touch in their bodies. Please surround those needing healing with your supernatural peace and strength and give them the faith to believe that all things are possible for you. Protect them from the lies and discouragement from the enemy and let the miraculous healing begin. Thank you Jesus. Amen. ~OC
Today’s a new day! Life is like running. Each step is a new memory. The more steps you take, the more memories you make. Never stop running!!! ~OC
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
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
Today’s a new day! On my Facebook memory today, it shared my bride and I were in Seattle on June 14,2019. We were going on a cruise to Alaska in celebration of our 20th Anniversary. What my medical team shared would be our last anniversary (our anniversary is actually in September) and probably my last trip ever. I was dying.
After almost 18 years of battling multiple life threatening health issues, my body was shutting down. I weighed 112 pounds, could not eat and could barely speak. I was living off a feeding tube. I was a dead man walking. But Laura and I were not thinking about death. We were too busy living life and making memories. We were living with Hope. Still believing in a Crazy Beautiful Miracle. Several months later, I would experience that crazy beautiful miracle under a tent. I would not experience death as most of my medical team predicted. No, Jesus had other plans. Plans for me to live and share the story he gave me. To Thrive.
Today you might be facing a storm. Maybe even death. But I want to encourage you to live with Hope and Believe our wonderful Savior might just have a crazy beautiful miracle for you. So walk in your Miracle today. ~OC

Today is National Loving Day. This celebrates the 1967 Supreme Court decision Loving vs. Virginia. The Court struck down as unconstitutional laws in 16 states that prohibited interracial marriages. ~OC
Today’s a new day! We did not find God. He was always there. All we had to do was reach out and take his hand. God meets us where we are. We do not have to clean ourselves up before God loves us. No, God loved us before we were even a twinkle in our parents eyes. God does not care about all our imperfections. You see, God only sees the masterpiece he created. I hope that rocks your world. You will never experience true unconditional love until you experience God’s amazing love. ~OC
Today’s a new day! When you activate your faith, miracles are set in motion. ~OC
Today’s a new day! It doesn’t matter if the storm you are facing was started by the hand of the enemy, it still has to pass through the hand of Jesus. ~OC
Jesus just put these words on my heart.
Sweet Jesus, you were willing to give up your life, so all that believe in you would spend eternity in Paradise. By giving your life, you unlocked the doors of Heaven to all believers. As Jesus prepares your loved one to walk into Paradise, you can hold on to the amazing truths of Jesus. One of those is that our loved one will hear those beautiful words “Well done, my good and faithful servant.” Then I believe Jesus will take the hand of our loved one and show them around Paradise. Then he will whisper in their ear, it’s good to have you home.
In your grief, may the above words bring you peace and comfort. I pray you embrace the truths of our Savior. Let Him wrap his loving arms around you like a warm blanket. ~OC
