Go Pray

In November 2019, I felt lead by God to start praying outside of Good Samaritan Medical Center for my dear friend Laura Geddes-Paez. As I prayed, several friends started joining me. What started off as just one night praying for my dear friend Laura, spread to me being asked by multiple families to pray outside of hospitals across Palm Beach County, Florida.

Back in November 2019, there were no Covid restrictions about visiting and praying inside the hospitals. Heck, Covid19 was not even in our vocabulary. But when I felt that calling to pray for my friend Laura, God directed me to pray outside. Maybe He was preparing me for the time we would not be able to visit our friends and loved ones inside. I just know that God as truly blessed each of these gatherings outside of our local hospitals. These beautiful prayer gatherings have been life changing for everyone involved.

So today, I want to encourage everyone that is able to spend some time praying outside of your local hospitals. To pray for patients, families,healthcare workers and everyone who works at the hospital. Maybe make some encouraging signs. Maybe put together little snack bags to hand out to hospital staff as they make their way to and from work. Let them know they are loved. Maybe adopt a floor at your local hospital and buy them lunch or dinner. What’s so amazing, is you never know the people God will bring your way that desperately need prayer. I hope someone will take this amazing challenge to heart. I promise, your life will never be the same. ~OC

My Journey

I was diagnosed with Covid and double pneumonia back in February. I spent 10 days on the Covid floor at Good Samaritan Medical Center. I dealt with multiple issues after recovering from Covid. No, it’s not like a bad cold. As I was finally starting to feel a little better, I was hit with a nasty viral infection about four weeks ago. That infection literally brought back every symptom I dealt with back in February. Back in May, Laura West Shoemaker and I both got vaccinated. Do I know what’s in the vaccine? No. Do I know what’s in any of the vaccines I have received since I was a baby? No. Before I became 100% Plant-Based, did I know what was in the Big Mac or Chick fil a sandwich? No, but I still ate it. I do not know what’s in the medications that helped keep me alive for all these years. But for over 18 years, my medical team has never done anything to harm me. So if they are comfortable getting the vaccine, so I am.

This post is not me telling you to get vaccinated or wear a mask. That’s not my job. I made the choice to get vaccinated and to wear a mask for the following reasons:

To not die from Covid-19. Yes, you can get Covid more than once.

If I happen to get Covid, I will probably not be hospitalized again.

To not overburden the hospitals and staff.

To keep those around me with compromised systems safe.

To be part of ending this horrible disease.

No I am not a medical expert. Most of the people reading this post are not either. I will choose to listen to the medical experts that God has put in my life.

This is not a political post. Covid is not a political issue, even if some people are trying to make it one. So please no political comments or conspiracy theories. People are dying. If you choose to leave political comments or conspiracy theories, I will delete your comment. 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

Prayer

As we face this new Covid outbreak, Jesus laid this on my heart.

Everyone can pray. We all need to be cautious, but not be living in fear. This is a time for Christians to truly be the hands and feet of Jesus. The lost have a lot of questions and we have the greatest answer in the world. That answer is greater than any storm they will ever face. That answer is eternal. ~OC

Prayer Warriors

Today’s a new day! Find me one person in the Bible who made a real difference, that did not have a strong prayer life. If we want to make a real difference for the Kingdom, we have to be Strong Prayer Warriors. ~OC

Blessings

Today’s a new day! Since the enemy cannot keep God from blessing you, he will try to keep you from living out the blessing that God has freely given you. ~OC

Transformation

Today’s a new day! What if the storm you are currently facing, is going to be the very thing that God uses to transform you? ~OC

Let Love Flow

Today’s a new day! I pray the following words will encourage you today.

When anger boils inside you, let love flow out.

When hate squeezes your heart, let love flow out.

When bitterness grips your life, let love flow out.

When faced with disappointment, let love flow out.

When an unkind word is on your lips, let love flow out.

When the world mistreats you, let love flow out.

When your overwhelmed and frustrated, let love flow out.

In every situation, remember to Choose Love. It’s all about love. Let it flow out. ~OC

Stay With Us

As I was waking this morning, God gave me this prayer. I pray it over each of you today and the days to come. ~OC

Today’s a new day! Dear Jesus, make our hearts your home. Your resting place. Let us make room for you. Never leave us Dear Lord. Stay with us always.
