Unity

Today’s a new day! Unity is something we desperately need in our world these days. We are surrounded by so much division. All you have to do is scroll through social media, turn on the news or go to a family get together. The Us vs.Them mentality has divided nations, families and churches. But the truth is, there is no such thing as Us vs. Them. There is only Us. Until we embrace this truth, we will continue to have division in our communities, state, nation and world.

So here’s my challenge. In our world today. I hope you will join me in praying daily for God’s love, forgiveness and grace to be poured out all across the world. May we each humble ourselves and pray for unity in our families, communities and churches. May our world experience a beautiful healing. ~OC

Waiting

Waiting. For most of us, waiting is not one of our favorite things. What do you do when life finds you in a state of waiting? When all we can do is wait. Waiting on test results. Waiting on a relationship to be mended. Waiting for a breakthrough. Waiting for a sign from God that it will not always be like this… waiting can be taxing, discouraging and deflating. Waiting can cause us to question our faith. To question God.

But what if waiting is the season God is using to grow us? That there is purpose behind the waiting. God wants us whole and He wants us free, and He will often take us on a journey of discovery before we get to the fulfillment of what we hope for. God has your back and He wants what is best for you. God is for you and will not forsake you, even in the middle of your biggest storm. Even during the waiting. ~OC

Not A Lack of Faith

Today’s a new day! Hello to some of my Christian brothers and sisters. If a fellow Christian decides to get the Covid vaccine or wear a mask, that does not mean they lack faith. It means they prayed about it and felt that was the best decision for them. Their choice. So brothers and sisters, please stop spreading this lie of lack of faith. It’s not a lack of faith. It’s a choice that a person made for themselves and their family. Respect that choice.

Once again, this is not a political post. So please no political comments or conspiracy theories. I don’t like deleting comments, but will if needed. Thanks. ~OC

Passion

Today’s a new day! Because we were created by God for his glory, our desire should be to know and share His truth passionately with a lost world. ~OC

Thank You!

Today’s a new day! Most of you know about my crazy beautiful health journey. For almost 18 years, I spent the majority of my life at Good Samaritan Medical Center on 4 South. Those years were not easy, but I was blessed with an amazing medical team. The Doctors, Nurses, CNA’s, Maintenance, Housekeeping, Admissions, Food Service, Tech’s, Transport and Administration became family. We spent many holidays and Super Bowls together. Each of these wonderful. amazing heroes made the tough days easier for Laura West Shoemaker and I.

As we watch this new Covid wave come through, I am concerned for my friends in the healthcare profession. I pray for them and check on them often. I encourage everyone to keep our healthcare workers in your prayers. Their job was difficult before Covid, but this horrible virus has put more of a strain on each of them. If you or a family member find yourselves in the hospital, please show these beautiful heroes respect. These amazing people are there to help you and your loved one. They are actually putting their lives and the lives of their own families on the line to help you get back to your loved ones. So today, say a prayer for all the amazing healthcare workers and hospital/nursing home staff. If you know a healthcare worker take the time to thank them for their service. ~OC

Be Kind

Today’s a new day! Check on your family, friends, neighbors and coworkers. A smile or positive social media post doesn’t mean everything is okay. ~OC

Surrender

We don’t talk about surrendering to God anymore. We talk about 15 steps to be a better you, 10 steps to your best life and 5 steps to be a better leader. We spend all of our time building up what God called us to crucify. ~OC

Choose Wisely

During this crazy beautiful journey called life, we will be forced to choose between walking with certain loved ones/friends or walking with Jesus. My prayer is we always recognize when we’re being asked to make that choice, that we choose wisely every single time. ~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
