Saturday 8/28/10
6 mile run

Had a pretty good week of training. My runs are feeling smooth and my conditioning and strength are improving nicely. It’s amazing how much better my running has become with an added emphesis on form and strength and conditioning. My normal training sch. was a little screwed up by a camping trip that Lauren and I went on this past weekend. But it worked out fine. I didn’t miss any sessions and even got to do a 6 miler early Saturday morning along the lakeshore with my Big Sis. All in all I’m happy with my recovery and progress since the half and now i’llbe focusing on strenghth and conditioning and hopefully a few 5 or 10ks thrown in.


Let’s Get Our Hearts Back

Posted in God's Word, Life on August 19, 2010 by gregbashore

I want my heart back. The very treasure that GOD himself has given me.I’m tired of being reminded that I am a sinner. Like i need thereminding. It’s everywhere around me. So why is it still the focus ofour message to each other as believers?  Why are we so quick to remindeach other how we always coming up short?  Is this the message GOD sentJesus to die for? To waste his life to remind us how sinful we are?Yes, it’s true that we are born into a world of sin. Yes it is true thatwe all fall short. Which is exactly why Christ suffered like he did.Because we couldn’t recapture our hearts without him. How many timeshave we heard that your hearts is the dwelling place of the spirit? Nowhow often do we believe it? I know I hardly do. But can the spirit ofGod live in company with sin? Certainly not, then what does that say ofour hearts? That restored by God through the death of Christ, are heartsare good. When was the last time we reminded each other of how ourhearts are good through Christ’s blood? How often do we remind eachother that we are not simply sinners saved by grace, but heirs to Heavengiven a heart just like Jesus.I wonder how much more we could shine as the Church if we reminded eachother how are hearts are made holy and rightous through the resurectionof our Lord, instead of always reminding each other how we are sinners

I Want

Posted in Life on August 18, 2010 by gregbashore

I want to move out west, live in the mountains.  I want to read “War And Peace”, pick  wild berries and write poetry. I want to study the bible, grow a beard and hunt elk on foot.  I want to study ancient philosophers, tell time by the sun, and meet GOD.

“Your biggest challenge isn’t someone else. Its the ache in your lungs and the burning in your legs, and the voice inside you that yells ‘CAN’T’, but you don’t listen. You just push harder. And then you hear the voice whisper, ‘can’. And you discover that the person you thought you were is no match for the one you really are.” ~unknown~

I don’t run to bring glory to GOD, it’s really not about that for me. I don’t do it as my open testimony to the world of how great GOD is. I don’t go run so the world can see the glory of GOD through me. I run because that’s where he meets me, where he teaches me and shows himself to me. It’s where I struggle and suffer physically so that when I’m done he can make me grow spiritually. It’s after those great runs that he’s lead me on that I get “IT”. That I figure out whatever “IT” is he’s been trying to show me. It  doesn’t happen after every run. Some times it takes a couple, sometimes weeks and sometimes months. It’s because he isn’t a quick fix an easy answer to my problems. A true walk; a true journey with him is full of as many ups and downs, heartaches and pains, highs and lows as the run itself. And that’s when I get “it”! That’s when I figure out the “THING” he’s been showing me this time. And it’s when I figure it out, when I start putting it into my life, my journey through the world WITH him. That’s when I bring him glory. That’s when the worlds sees him in my life. I don’t run to bring GOD glory. I run so he can teach me to be his glory.
