Moving On

Posted in God's Word, Life on January 22, 2011 by gregbashore

Last spring I read a book called “Fathered by God”. It was absolutely amazing and hit home for me in a way that rarely ever happens. While reading that book last spring/summer I have never felt more connected to God. I was riding such a spiritual high while I journeyed through that book that I actually felt saddened when I was done reading it. I didn’t really know what to do next. While I read it I never really applied it to my life in a way to keep fostering change once the book had ended.  It stirred up a lot of questions but I never really took the time to come face to face with those questions.

So that’s what I am doing now. At the beginning of the book, it is encouraged to reread the book a second time and to follow a workbook written to go with the book itself. So that is what I am going to do. I have never really been one to do “homework” as a why to get close to God. It always seemed to “Sunday school” for me. But the workbook is intentionally written in a way to try to avoid that. Its not written as a lesson plan to be completed in so many weeks. But as a map to help guide you along the journey laid out in the book.

So here is to my new experience. I’m hoping to read through the life of David as I do this study as a way to see Biblical application of the message trying to be learned from the book. So here is to the next stage of the journey. I will try to update on here as much as possible this process, but at the same time it is a little more personal then anything I have ever done and the goal is to strengthen my one on one relationship with God, so we’ll see how it goes.

If

Posted in Life on January 19, 2011 by gregbashore

If you can keep your head when all about you Are losing theirs and blaming it on you;

If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,But make allowance for their doubting too;

If you can wait and not be tired by waiting, Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies, Or being hated, don’t give way to hating, And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise:

If you can dream — and not make dreams your master;

If you can think — and not make thoughts your aim;

If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster, And treat those two imposters just the same;

If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken. Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken, And stoop and build ’em up with worn-out tools;

If you can make one heap of all your winnings And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings And never breathe a word about your loss;

If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew To serve your turn long after they are gone,And so hold on when there is nothing in you Except the Will which says to them: “Hold on!”

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,Or walk with kings — nor lose the common touch,

If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,

If all men count with you, but none too much;

If you can fill the unforgiving minute With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run —
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,
And — which is more — you’ll be a Man, my son!
-Rudyard Kipling

My Blog

Posted in Endurance, Family, God's Word, Life, Training on January 13, 2011 by gregbashore

Becoming Cowboys is my blog I stared as a way for me to keep a written account of my journey through the life God created for me. It gives me a place to keep my thoughts and memories so I can see where I have came from, where I am at, and where I am going.

Becoming Cowboys is simply my way of describing what I see as the finish line at the end of the journey of life. Which is simply authentic manhood in the way Christ designed it to be. I use the term Paleolithic as a way to show a continuous effort to change the focus of life from things I want, to things God desires me to need.
Basically its my way to talk about the things I enjoy.
-Life: My family and friends and the time spent with them.
-Power lifting and Running: my two biggest passions (which I’m aware couldn’t be more opposite from each other in the realm of the physical world) outside of my family. As well as a place to recap my training sessions.
-Walk with God: the growth of my friendship and dependence on him.

Throughout the blog I also talk about other passions that make up my life. Football (all forms: Soccer, College,Rugby), Music, and The Ohio State Buckeyes (which could fall under football, but its so much more). But the theme will always be life and my decision to always be moving forward.
