GO TEAM BLUE!!!

WE’RE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER @ MCNRC!!!  WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!  Our Rehab. Dept. at work consists of approximately 17 Physical, Occupational and Speech therapists, including the DORS(Director of Rehab. Services) and Rehab. Tech.  + a few PRN therapists, as needed.  We are often referred to as “TEAM BLUE” since we’re all required to wear navy scrubs on a daily basis.  DOUBLE WOO-WHOOOOOO, WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!  GO TEAM BLUE!!! (“The Blue boys and girls!!!”)

I am so, So, SO proud to be part of such a fine team of rehab. professionals.  This past Friday was a fine display of team professionalism mixed with sincere compassion and strong FAITH.  Therapists, individually or in pairs of 2, entered a residents room at various times throughout the day to pray over and with an amazing woman during the last-leg of her life’s JOURNEY from HERE to THERE.

Jocelyn(Jo), one of our Physical Therapists, entered the resident’s room as I sat praying at her bedside and this PT did NOT miss a beat!!!   She proceeded to recite the following from memory:

PSALM 23

The LORD is my shepherd.
I have all that I need.
He lets me rest in green meadows;
He leads me beside peaceful streams.
He renews my strength.
He guides  me along right paths,
bringing honor to His name.
Even when I walk
through the darkest valley,
I will not be afraid,
for you are close beside me.
Your rod and your staff
protect and comfort me.
You prepare a feast for me
in the presence of my enemies.
You honor me by anointing my head with oil.
My cup overflows with blessings.
Surely your goodness and unfailing love will pursue me
all the days of my life,
and I will live in the house of the LORD
forever.

WOW!!!  I felt so blessed to be a part of that VERY special moment shared between 2 therapists and a resident of our skilled nursing facility.  Now “THAT” was AMAZING, folks!!!  AMAZING GRACE. 

GO TEAM!!!  WE’RE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER!!!

ALL GLORY BE TO GOD!!!  AMEN.

 

“DISCIPLE-MAKING DANGERS!”

WHAT???!!!???!!!???!!!  YOU MUST BE KIDDING, PASTOR WALTOR!!!  It’s as though my “LIFE” experiences are falling right in-line with our weekly messages delivered at church!!!  BAM!!!  I Cannot make this stuff up, folks.  Come along…we’re goin’ in!!!

“MY FEAR WITHIN” is a previous blog post dated 8/29/15.  That post was inspired by a situation I got tangled in while trying to share the message of numberoneteam.net with others…“OUT THERE”…who were not affiliated with Christianity, per-say.  “LIFE” out there in the “REAL” world is a scary place, folks.  I believe I referred  to it as a “JUNGLE” in the aforementioned post, “MY FEAR WITHIN”.  Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…

In short, I recently found myself in a situation where my intention of inserting God’s word into an established entity’s message was completely smothered by that entity’s program beliefs and methods.  There were no opportunities for the inclusion of Christianity into their program agenda…PERIOD!!!  Hhhmmm…”My Fear Within” became TOTALLY realized as a sincere fear of losing God.  I WAS SCARED STRAIGHT…BACK TO ABC!!!  With a sincere desire to plant myself firmly within our church!!!  BAM!!!  In order to gain a stronger knowledge-base in preparation for future excursions out  there in…”THE JUNGLE”!!!  :/  DOUBLE BAM, BAM!!!

I had to chuckle as Pastor Walter delivered tonight’s message about “Disciple-Making Dangers!”  from 2 Timothy 3: 1-17, such as:

1).  The fiercely dangerous cultural current of our times.  :/  YA THINK!!!???!!!???!!!???  IT’S A JUNGLE OUT THERE, Pastor Walter!!!   😉

2.)  Defeating out-of-control self-love through self-denial.

3.)  Discerning between true spiritual power versus eye-candy spiritualism.

4.)  Defending against spiritual abusers.

5.)  Using scripture to guard against Disciple-Making Dangers.

Pastor Walter  ended tonight’s message with one final suggestion:  “PREPARE FOR SPIRITUAL BATTLE”.  SAY WHAT???!!!???!!!???!!!  WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!  I’M A FIGHTER, folks!!!  ALWAYS HAVE BEEN!!!  ALWAYS WILL BE!!!  DOUBLE WOO-WHOOOOOO, WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!  “IT’S  ON!!!”

NOW REMEMBER, folks:  “IT’S A JUNGLE OUT THERE!!!”

GO TEAM CHRISTIAN WARRIORS!!!  WE’RE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER!!!

P.H.P., folks.  People Helping People.

Give the BEST of yourself for “JUST” today…”EVERY” day!!!

ALL GLORY BE TO GOD!!!  AMEN.
