Dead Man Running

This time last year, doctors gave me a few months to live. Then my healing came on November 3, 2019.

At the start of 2020, I set a goal to run 500 miles this year. As of this morning, I have less than 200 to go. ~OC

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

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

LOVE

Today’s a new day! People need to feel your love and concern, before they hear your words. ~OC

Unleash

Today’s a new day! Unleash Compassion+Unleash Love+Unleash Grace+Unleash Hope+Unleash Prayer+Unleash Forgiveness= A Changed Life & A Changed World ~OC

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

Not Backing Down

Today’s a new day! Not backing down. You can’t count me out. No longer going to play it safe. Stepping out of my comfort zone. Where Jesus leads me, I will follow. ~OC

When The Media Leaves

Today’s a new day! Here are some question for the Church and the Nation:

*When the media leaves Minneapolis, will you still be standing up and speaking out for the rights of our brothers and sisters of color?

*Will you still be having conversations about racism and injustice in America?

*Will you remember all the African-American men and women, who were simply murdered because of the color of their skin?

*Will you just go back to regularly scheduled programming? ~OC

Challenges

Today’s a new day! You will face challenges today. Some will be small, but some will feel overwhelming. I encourage you to overcome those challenges. I encourage you to look at past victories. You have overcome challenges before and you can do it again. It will not be easy, but I believe you can make it. Don’t back down. Don’t give up. Keep believing. Keep pushing forward. God is in control. He will be with you every step of the way. God can turn your challenges into opportunities. Embrace those opportunities. Keep Overcoming! ~OC
