The Call!

I am calling any of my friends and or family for help. As many of you know I am doing the River Bank Run this year. I am doing it to raise money to find a cure for Neurofibromatosis. I do have this and it has been an interesting life with it but not disabling. I have chosen to be a victor. anyway it is a 25k race. I am not running but walking and will be riding in a cart for some of it. but am asking for help with raising funds. if you can or know someone who can please visit my fund raising page and help. Any amount is appreciated. whether it be $1.00 or $1,000. every little bit helps and it is for a good cause. I know I've posted about before but so far I have raise $660. it is amazing. please!!! help!!! if you can if you can't I understand but appreciate you passing this on if you can. if you can't then please pray.

Who! Am! I!

Who am I? I ama saint that once and a while sins. You heard me right. I did not say that I am a sinner. God sees me as a saint and one without sin. because he looks at me through His son Jesus. I know you will say I am not a saint. I am just a sinner saved by grace. I say that is good to recognize that you have been saved by grace. that may be true. however if you are in Christ you are a new creature. The old things have past away and all has become new. In fact the apostle Paul refered to those who are believers as saints. see any of his epistles and they were addressed to the saints. he isn't the only one. Luke throughout Acts refered to the Christians as "saints" as he was writing about Paul's journeys he stated, "paul visited the saints" now when I say that I am a saint I am not saying that I am perfect. I am a saint that once and a while sins. I am thankful that I am new in Christ and know this for sure that he Loves me and you and he wants us to live a life that pleases him. He does forgive us when we mess up and fall and picks us up and brushes the junk off and says "lets move on" It doesn't matter what we have or will do. in fact if you are reading this first time and don't know Him it is simple. he will forgive you to for any and all things you've ever done. all you need to do is simple. 1 admit you need him that you are a sinner. 2 believe that Jesus died on the cross, was buried and rose again. 3 confess this and ask him to come in your heart. then find yourself a Bible and a good church and learn more about him. He won't turn you away on any count. the only time it is to late to make this decision is when you've died. so don't delay make the decision and let's move forward. if you want someone to talk to about it let me know I am willing. but God is always there anytime day or night and there is no specific way you have to pray just pray what is on your heart knowing the fact he hears you and is listening and will help. I don't know why for years we've taught we are just sinners saved by grace when the Bible is clear that we are saints. I've been told it is so we can identify with those who don't know him. well we are to be set apart different so why identify or say we are just like someone who doesn't know Christ. we are children of the King! let's act like it and bring others into the family!

victum or victor

We have many choices in life. Aside from choosing whether or not to accept Christ as ones savior there is two choices that one has to make. These are very important and will make a difference in how life goes. You need to choose to be either a victum or a victor. either one you choose is your choice and no one can force you to do he other. A victum says "I can't and it is not possible" and "pity me everyone is against me and I'll never make it" a victor says: "I can! it is possible! I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me!" A victor says it is possible no matter how bad it gets because he or she knows that one way or another they'll make it. if they fall they get up up and brush off and move forward. a victum falls and stays down and cries. I know life is a challenge Christ told us it wuold be so. Your attitude is your decision no one can make you angry or upset or happy. you choose your attitude. it is alright to cry and be upset. allow yourself the experience of the emotion then choose what you are going to do. a victum would stay depressed and refuse to change a victor will allow a cry then say let's move forward. a victor knows tat some things are not possible because lack of ability but they allow themself to experience and try to see if they have said ability and if not then they find a way to get it done by some means. a victum doesn't even try they just say "no" and refuse to step out. So I ask you today! are you going to choose to be a victum or a victor! I choose to be a victor and choose to be an eagle and soar to new heights. Hoping someone will join me in the experience.
