Always Find The Silver Lining - What Are You Thankful For

Chaplains Corner
By Jim Bull

Being Thankful

You know it seems the more time goes by the more I realize how thankful I am for the things that I have. It certainly is very easy to take things for granted, isn’t it? I don’t know if it’s what our society teaches us or if it’s just human nature but either way I am finding that by stopping each morning to give thanks for the things that I do have makes life more enjoyable. I mean who wants to go through life in a “state of want” all the time?

So let’s see what the bible says about it:

1 THESSALONIANS 5:18 - Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus. (NLT)

This month’s inspiration came not only from the bible but from long time MAMA racer Bryce Reeves. I have a habit of asking people “whats up” and Bryce just happened to be standing near me while I was taking pictures at Southfork and he said something like “God first, then family, then mx” and that sparked our conversation and the basis for this article.

It turns out about a year ago Bryce suffered from a brain hemorrhage which led to a stroke and heart failure which almost took his life. He ended up in the hospital for about a week and a half and till this day still doesn’t have full use of the left side of his body.

He told me that after spending 41 years racing motocross and raising his kids at the track and watching them grow up racing that there was no way he could stop, that he had to find a way to stay on the bike. It was a year to the day after Bryce was released from the hospital that he crawled back on the bike at Tomahawk earlier this year.

He’s had to retrain his body and learn to compensate with his right to make the left side of his body work. Bryce told me he always believed in God but his health experience made everything he thought he already believed come to reality.  He believes that because of God that he is still here racing and for that he is most thankful.

Bryce said if the race was to the first turn only that he could still win every time.

So I’ll ask you, what are you thankful for? Do you stop to think about it on a regular basis or do you unconsciously go through your days looking for more? Please don’t misunderstand the point I’m trying to get across. I too am a believer in setting goals and always striving to do your best - here I’m talking about the things that we sometimes take for granted. Maybe it’s the things our family does for us on a regular basis that we’ve come to expect or possibly a coworker that pulls some extra weight for you on a day that you’re a little sluggish. Maybe it’s the fact that we just woke up today and aren’t in pain and all our body parts work.

I would ask you to think about it and even to write it down. I’ve found a good little habit to form is the minute you wake up to think about three things you are thankful for that morning. Maybe start a journal and write it down every day but more importantly if your thankful for someone in your life or the things that they do for you - let them know about it, just don’t assume that they already know.

Say It Ain't So

So I'm not sure that the title has everything to do with the subject of today's post but it was designed with the hopes that you would open the link to see what its all about.

I hope your still with me because I just want to share a truth with you that I always seem to forget. The truth about how lucky and blessed that I truly am, that we all truly are. You see no matter what is going on in our current lives, I've discovered that somebody always has it worse.

Most of my family has been down with the flu bug in one capacity or another over this Thanksgiving Holiday and its just been kind of rushed. My wife and I both got hit hard Sunday into Monday just as she was scheduled to go back to work and to top it all off the heat is not working in her car so now I have to also get up at 5:30 to drive her to work in the dark and the rain with a belly ache.

Wow, talk about a whiner and no I'm not complaining honey, just trying to make my point. Actually to tell the truth I was really kind of feeling that way on this particular morning but I sucked it up and smiled and on our way we went.

As we drove off in the dark I started to think about the fact that my lovely wife gets up five days a week and heads off to work at the wee hours of the morning while I lie in bed. You see I've worked from home for 15 years now and for the most part set my own hours.

As we drove and started our morning conversations I noticed all the other folks out there headed off to their morning destinations. Probably going somewhere they didn't want, to do something they really didn't want to do just for the good of the cause. 

Then I noticed a mother walking her young child along the dark city streets bundled up under an umbrella while I was driving my late model truck with good heat and Sirrus XM radio. My wife says yes, I see that every morning and I began to think about that.

She told me about a another young mother and her child that she sees walking towards a day care near our neighborhood every day of the year. We talked about how she probably lives in "that apartment complex" and can't afford a car of her own.

Then my wife started telling me about a NFL Team that partners every year with a furniture manufacturer and other companies to provide beds and linens for 100 children from the city streets that don't have beds of their own. Can you imagine not having a bed of your own?

After I dropped my beautiful and patient wife off at work assuring her I would return later I began to think about the situation in Tennessee. The last I heard over 140 homes have burned to the ground in the last several days, businesses are gone and people have lost their lives and I'm whining about getting up at 5:30 to take my wife to work, did I mention in a warm vehicle and Peter Frampton to entertain me on the way back.

So I get home and start to begin my day and in my emails I find an all important message from a company I partner with that really kicked me in my butt. Yes just what I needed on a day like today.

You see as humans we complain, we try to figure life out (why me) and we take for granted most things that we have, especially in this great nation. With the recent happenings over our country's election, natural disasters, more school shootings and the oncoming of what should be one of our most sacred holidays - we still seem to forget who is in control.

Phillipians 4:13 says: I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength.

No matter what your beliefs are, I would ask you to think about that a little today. To think about maybe a time when things weren't really going your way. 

Who did you turn to? What was the outcome? Do you wish it somehow could of been different?

I would also ask you to always remember that no matter how bad things are, there is always someone worse off than you. That maybe reaching out with a helping hand may be something you could have used in your time of need.

Thanks for reading and may God Bless you always in everything you do.

No Matter Who Is President - Jesus is King

Matthew 28:18 (NIV) - 
Then Jesus came to them and said, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.

I know they say that religion and politics should not be mixed, but I’ll ask you in light of the recent happenings in our country, do you know what God has to say about it all? 

And if he were involved do you think that maybe things would be any different than what they currently are?

No matter whether you believe in a Heavenly Father, God Creator of all or not I would bet that you would prefer to live in a more peaceful society than not.

The Bible says in Daniel 2:21 (NIV)
He changes times and seasons; he deposes kings and raises up others. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning.

As a Christian believer I interpret this to mean that just like he changes the seasons God will control who he allows to become our current leaders and he will in fact send others if the current ones aren’t doing a good job. That he will guide those who will seek out the truth.

The Bible also says in Titus 3:9 (NIV)
But avoid foolish controversies and genealogies and arguments and quarrels about the law, because these are unprofitable and useless.

Again, whether you agree with the outcome or not, it is the outcome. So wouldn’t it be wise for us to move on to other important things such as healing and repair, to support the position and not the person filling the position.

More importantly the Bible says in Leviticus 19:18 (NIV)
Do not seek revenge or bear a grudge against anyone among your people, but love your neighbor as yourself. I am the Lord.

Let’s face it, many are happy about the outcome but there are many who are not. Would it not be wise whether you consider yourself a Christian or not to try and make the best of the current situation and to give it some time before passing judgment on what the future outcome may be. Research shows that 80% of the things we worry about never come to fruition anyhow.

I guess a couple of things to possibly take away from this are that number one, Gods Will ultimately controls everything and nothing that any government will do can overthrow that. You may ask then if that’s true why God would allow such violence to be going on in our country.  I guess to that response I would ask if you believe that current activities in our society are a Blessing or maybe rather a Judgement from God.

Secondly, we must grasp the fact that our government cannot and should not save us. Only we can do that through the power of Jesus Christ by humbling ourselves, by loving our neighbors and by determining Gods Will for our lives and discovery of the transforming power of the gospels found in the Bible.

Proverbs Follow Up - Wisdom vs Salvation

Hello All,

Wow, we just finished our Motocross for Christ August Proverbs Bible Challenge.

A verse a day for each of the 31 days in August. I don't know about you but I certainly learned a lot. Below find a video to follow up from that study with.

Proverbs talks about how we should live our life but not about how we get to Heaven.

Watch video - Wisdom vs Salvation  Click Here

I hoped that helped and I would certainly appreciate all feedback on the subject.

Remember - we can never be good enough to get into Heaven. The good news is that all we need to do is accept the fact that Jesus is the Son of God and believe that he died for all of our sins and confess those to the Lord.

The rest is a project in the making. God Bless until next time.

 Proverbs 9 

Invitations of Wisdom and Folly

From: Bible Hub.com

1Wisdom has built her house;
she has set upa its seven pillars.
2She has prepared her meat and mixed her wine;
she has also set her table.
3She has sent out her servants, and she calls
from the highest point of the city,
4“Let all who are simple come to my house!”
To those who have no sense she says,
5“Come, eat my food
and drink the wine I have mixed.
6Leave your simple ways and you will live;
walk in the way of insight.”
7Whoever corrects a mocker invites insults;
whoever rebukes the wicked incurs abuse.
8Do not rebuke mockers or they will hate you;
rebuke the wise and they will love you.
9Instruct the wise and they will be wiser still;
teach the righteous and they will add to their learning.
10The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom,
and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.
11For through wisdomb your days will be many,
and years will be added to your life.
12If you are wise, your wisdom will reward you;
if you are a mocker, you alone will suffer.
13Folly is an unruly woman;
she is simple and knows nothing.
14She sits at the door of her house,
on a seat at the highest point of the city,
15calling out to those who pass by,
who go straight on their way,
16“Let all who are simple come to my house!”
To those who have no sense she says,
17“Stolen water is sweet;
food eaten in secret is delicious!”
18But little do they know that the dead are there,
that her guests are deep in the realm of the dead.
