Is All Hope Lost?

Posted in Life on December 23, 2010 by gregbashore

Where have we gone wrong as a society? At what point in our lives do our souls finally have a price? When does it become ok to trade love, respect, tradition for profit? When did we forget that our last names repersent more then just us?  Maybe I’m just to old-fashsion. Maybe I’m out of touch with reality, too simple minded. I mean its all about the paycheck right?  Isn’t that the reason you first picked up a baseball bat when you were five years old?  The reason you strapped in that football helment for the first time? The money. You remember sitting there as a 5 year old watching the Nasty Boys destroy the Oaklawn A’s and thought to yourself “I wonder how much their paycheck is?”. Its why you woke up every Saturday morning to watch those boys in scarlet and gray. To see what type of deal they signed in the NFL.What happened to love? Love of the game, love of life?  Maybe the ones who deserve the big signing bonuses, the shoe contracts, all the endorsement deals are the kids. The kids who do what they do because they love it. The kids that do what they do because its just as easy as breathing. The thing is, the ones that deserve it, the ones who truly know how to represent the sport, or life, are the ones who can’t be bought. There is no money in the world that could afford my Berry Larkin jersey when I was eleven years old. No price was high enough for me to sell my district championship medal. Why? Because its mine, its my families. I earned that. I earned that with the countless hours fielding ground balls in the back yard. The thousounds of swings off the tee. It was something I could be proud of. That my team could be proud of and my family could be proud of.I am almost 28 years old and I still bleed scarlet and gray when you cut me open. I feel every emotion of every snap of every play. I’m proud to be from the state of Ohio and even more proud to wear my Scarlet sweatshirt in the state of Illionis. Unfornuantly, one day I’ll have to explain to my son that some peoples pride can be bought. That there is a price for tradition. That some people think their last name only represents themselves.They don’t understnad how their actions affect other people. Congrats! You have a few extra dollors in your pocket, and there will be a few extra trash cans with jerseys thrown in them. I hope it was worth it

A Christmas Story You May Have Never Heard

Posted in God's Word on December 12, 2010 by gregbashore

A great and wonderous sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet and a crown of twelve starts on her head. She was pregnant and cried out in pain as she was about to give birth. Then another sign appeared in heaven: an enormous red dragon with seven heads and ten horns and seven crowns on his head. His tail swept a third of the stars out of the sky and flung them to earth. The dragon stood in front of the woman who was about to give birth, so that he might devour her child the moment it was born. She gave birth to a son, a maled child, who will rule all the nations with an iron scepter. And her child was snatched up to God and to his throne. The woman fled into the desert to a place prepared for her by God, where she might be taken care of for 1,260 days.

And there was war in heaven. Michael and his angels fought against the dragon, and the dragon and his angels fought back. But he was not strong enough, and they lost their place in heaven. The great dragon was hurled down-that ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, who leads the whole world astray. He was hurled to the earth, and his angels with him.

Then I heard a loud voice in heaven say:

“Now yhave come the salvation and the power and the kingdom of our God, and the authority of his Christ.

Fot the accuser of our brothers, who accuses the before our God day and night, has been hurled down.

They overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; thet did not love their lives so much to shrink from death.

Therefore rejoice, you heavens and you who dwell in them! But woe to the earth and the sea, because the devil has gone down to you! He is filled with fury, because he knows that his time is short.”

When the dragon saw that he had been hurled to the earth, he pursued the woman who had given birth to the male child. The woman was given two wings of a great eagle, so that she might fly to the place prepared for her in the desert, where she would be taken care of for a time, times and half a time, out of the serpent’s reach. Then from his mouth the serpent spewed water like a river, to overtake the woman and sweep her away with the torrent. But the earth helped the woman by opening its mouth and swollowing the river that the dragon had spewed out of his mouth. Then the dragon was enraged at the woman and went off to make war against the rest of her offspring-those who obey God’s commandments and hold to the testimony of Jesus.
Revelation 12

Chapter 3 Part 1

Posted in God's Word, Life on December 10, 2010 by gregbashore

According to the Scriptures, the heart can be troubled, wounded, pierced, grieved, even broken. How well we all know that. Thankfully, it cann also be cheerfull, glad, merry, joyfull, rejoicing. The heart can be whole or divided-as in that phrase we often use, “Well, part of me wants to, but the other part of me doesn’t.” It can be wise or foolish. It can be steadfast, true, upright, stout, valiant. It can als be frightened, faint, cowardly, melt like wax. The heart can be wandering, forgetfull, dull, stubborn, proud, hardened. Wicked and perverse. I think we know that as well.

Much to our surprise, according to Jesus, a heart can also be pure, as in, “Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God” (Matt. 5:8). And even noble, as in his story about the sower: “But the seed on good soil stands for those with a noble and good heart, who hear the word, retain it, and by perservering produce a crop” (Luke 8:15). The bible sees the heart as the source of our faith, our hope, and of course, our love. It is the “wellspring of life” with in us (Prov. 4:23), the very essence of our existence, the center of our being, the fount of our life.

Think about your work life for a moment. Why are so many people bored or frustrated with their jobs? Why do they dread Monday morning and “thank God it’s Friday”? Their hearts are not in their work. Far from it. However they arrived at what they’re doing with their lives, it wasn’t by listening to their hearts. The same holds true for their love life. Why do so many relationships fail? Because one or both partners no longer have a heart for making it work. On and on it goes. Why are so many people struggling with depression and discouragement? They’ve lost heart. Why can’t we seem able to break free of our addictions? Because somewhere along the way, in a moment of carelessness or desperation, we gave our heart away, and now we can’t get it back.

There is no escaping the centrality of the heart. God knows that; it’s why he made it the central theme of the Bible, just as he placed the physical heart in the center of the human body. The heart is central; to find our lives, we must make it central again.
-Waking the Dead (pg 40 and 41)

Its been to long! I lost heart, but we keep moving forward. RFM!
