Not a Elephant or Donkey

Good morning everyone! This week, I received an email that basically called into question my faith based on someone’s assumptions about my political views. I have never actually had a conversation with this person about my political views, but I guess they decided I did not show enough support for their candidate. I am basically apolitical. I do not belong to a political party. Before each election, I take the time to educate myself on each of the candidates and issues. Then I vote my conscience. I could care less if you support a elephant or donkey. I would rather know about you, your family and how I can help/pray for you. I have chosen not to respond to the email at this time. I will pray about it and see if it is actually worth my time and effort. Thanks for letting me share. ~OC

A Prayer for Healthcare Workers

Dear Jesus, you are the giver and sustainer of life. Thank you for all the healthcare workers as they start a new week caring for patients. Keep them safe as they walk through the halls of hospitals this week. Dear Jesus, give them wisdom to know how to care for the patients you have placed in front of them. Especially those emergency cases. Dear Jesus, keep their hearts grounded in your truth. Dear Jesus, never let them lose hope on any patient that you have entrusted to their care. Dear Jesus, at the end of the day give them rest. Thank you Jesus. ~OC

Truth, Hope and Love

Today’s a new day! The world is hurting. Violence, Hate and Disease seem to be running rampant. People are scared. People are frustrated. People are looking for something real. People are looking for hope. People are looking at Christians.

As Christians, we have a tremendous opportunity to share real love and hope to a hurting world. Will you step out of your comfort zone and help share the true hope and love of Jesus with a hurting world or will you let this amazing opportunity pass, as you sit on your hands and complain about the church doors being closed? ~OC

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

Pray

Good afternoon family & friends. I received this from one of my nurses. Please continue to pray for all the healthcare workers, hospital/nursing home staff, first responders, patients and families. ~OC

Todd.. I’m working covid unit and the patients are so lonely. They get no visitors and are mostly to weak to even talk on phone.. the families aren’t allowed to visit.. I’m encouraging families to send care packages.. fresh fruit.. pictures of them and family members to remind them to fight depression .. they need encouragement.. I wish I could spend more time with them…

Will You?

With all the racist and hateful comments being spewed by so many, I hold on to the belief that hate can never win. Love wins when good people stand up against hate.

A question for all of us. Will we stand up against hateful racist comments or will we make excuses for those making the comments? ~OC

Running to the King

I lace my shoes up, I hit the road
I’m ready to run
I’m not running from something, but to someone
That someone is Jesus, who keeps me running during this crazy beautiful journey
A journey that led me through storms and rough seas
A journey filled with pain
A journey that’s always trying to beat me down and steal my joy
But the enemy can’t steal my joy, can’t keep me down
I keep running I keep fighting
I keep holding on to the promises of God
In the Word every day
Lifting my prayers up to the King
I keep running, I keep fighting
Running to the King
I might bend but I won’t break
I will keep running to the King
I keep running I keep fighting
I will keep my eyes on the prize
I might bend but I won’t break
I keep running, I keep fighting
I will finish the race strong

Running to the King ~OC

Adopt A School

As school districts debate on whether they should open up in the Fall or not, I would encourage everyone to adopt a school to pray for in your area. You could take one day a week, to drive by the school and pray for the students, teachers, administrators, staff and parents. This will be another tough and unique school year for everyone. They could all use our prayers. ~OC
