Happy Presidents Day!

Happy Presidents Day!

I have not done a video in a while and just want to say thank you for all you do and have done for not only me but the kingdom of God. Thank you for all you do everyday. Even though you may not be called out individually… you are being noticed for all the great things you do in his name. Thank you. Thank you Veterans and First Responders! Thank you Presidents for all you do and have done to keep and maintain our freedoms. #GodBlessAmerica

We must pray for our leaders! “Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God. Therefore whoever resists the authority resists the ordinance of God, and those who resist will bring judgment on themselves. For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to evil. Do you want to be unafraid of the authority? Do what is good, and you will have praise from the same. For he is God’s minister to you for good. But if you do evil, be afraid; for he does not bear the sword in vain; for he is God’s minister, an avenger to execute wrath on him who practices evil. Therefore you must be subject, not only because of wrath but also for conscience’ sake. For because of this you also pay taxes, for they are God’s ministers attending continually to this very thing. Render therefore to all their due: taxes to whom taxes are due, customs to whom customs, fear to whom fear, honor to whom honor.”

Make America Great Again!

What a great night celebrating and praying for America. Even though we are in a storm as we come together as Christians we can continue to make America Great Again with prayer and unity! Blessed for my Cornerstone Church family!

“For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them.””

2017 Rocky Raccoon 100 mile Trail Race recap

T140542-001-019fhe race began at 6am Sat 4 Feb 2017. I felt fairly confident that I would finally complete a 100 mile race as this was my fourth attempt and my second here at the Rocky Raccoon in Huntsville, Texas.  Of course, finishing a 100 mile 30 hour timed trail race is not an easy task as many factors are involved just to reach the finish line.

Last year I DNFd (Did Not Finish) at mile 80 with 18 hours in.  It was midnight and 33 degrees and I already made it up in my mind that I was done.  The last 30 miles are more mental as your physical body has already broken down and is trying to get your attention lol.  This year I slowed my pace down to ensure that I would have a little bit more energy to finish strong and I did by speeding up my last split versus the one before.

I was lucky enough not to fall this time even though I came close many times!  Those tree roots love to come out at night – I kept making up a song about it “The Roots come out at night – the roots come out at niiiggghhhttt!” lol… and those pine needles love to hide em…

140542-077-013fI do have to say that running with the cross and American Flag on loop 2 was awesome and reminded me as to why I run.

Many asked me “Are you running the whole 100 miles with all that?” lol no I only did it one 20 mile loop during the day – definitely didn’t want to disrespect old glory in the night.

And of course many ask why.  First and foremost, for Jesus as he died on the cross for our sins and secondly for our Veterans and first responders as they put their lives on the line for our freedoms and safety everyday!

God bless the American soldier and our law enforcement officers/first responders!

As the race moved into the nighttime hours, you suddenly notice that many have either dropped out of the race or have finished.  So you begin running alone and may not see another runner for quite some time.  This is where the mental barrier sets in.  I begin to think of these things:

  • Jesus – talked to him many times
  • how blessed we really are as a nation to be able to have and do the things we want
  • our Veterans fighting for our freedoms
  • law enforcement/first responders keeping us safe
  • how I still have the energy to keep pushing forward 8)

I also made it a point to run for a cause before I started the race.  Our church (Cornerstone Church) in San Antonio, Texas pastored by John Hagee and Matthew Hagee are building a facility for unwed mothers and orphans with a focus on Christian education.  I decided to donate money for each mile I ran so this definitely was a motivator for me to finish the 100 miles!  Below is some information on the facility and if you would like to donate, the mothers and children would really appreciate that!  Thank you all that have donated and/or just simply share this post!  Visit SOHcares.org to donate and for more information on how you can help.

Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again. https://www.bible.com/bible/1/luk.6

“We preach against abortion, but in addition to taking a stand against this practice, we must also provide an alternative answer for these young mothers who at times feel they have no other options when they find themselves in seemingly impossible circumstances. We need to give them, and their unborn children, a viable option for their collective futures, and Sanctuary of Hope plans on being just that.

Visualize the Sanctuary of Hope with the following components: one—an unwed mother’s facility where young pregnant women who choose against abortion can reside until their baby is born. The child could then be adopted by a Godly family of proven character or raised in, two—the Sanctuary of Hope orphanage; a state of the art facility located in the San Antonio area. And the third component is world-class educational facilities including dormitories which will enable these children and other qualified students from around America to attend Cornerstone Christian Schools—one of the finest Christian schools in the nation.

Partner with us help build a Sanctuary of Hope where deserving children can reach their divine potential and become righteous leaders for the future of America and the world.” ~JHM Ministries

Here is a video detailing this great upcoming facility:

 

img_1401I was so excited to cross that finish line in just over 28 hours (28:14:33).

Thank you to the race director Chris McWatters at Tejas Trails for putting on such a great race as usual!

And of course thank you to all the volunteers and aid stations! Those KFC buckets though 8)

Till next time! Peace and may God Bless You!
