Trust in the LORD and do good; 
dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture. 
Delight yourself in the LORD 
and he will give you the desires of your heart. 
Commit your way to the LORD; 
trust in him and he will do this: 
He will make your righteousness shine like the dawn, 
the justice of your cause like the noonday sun. 
Be still before the LORD and wait patiently for him; 
do not fret when men succeed in their ways, 
when they carry out their wicked schemes. 

Psalms 37: 3-7

Question: Will you be a part of this event or will you be left behind?

Jn. 10:11
Jesus said: I am the good shepherd; the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep. 

Lu. 22:41, 42, 43, 44
And he was withdrawn from them about a stone's cast and kneeled down, and prayed, Saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done. And there appeared an angel unto him from heaven, strengthening him. And being in an agony he prayed more earnestly: and his sweat was as it were great drops of blood falling down to the ground. 

I've been a biker all my life. All I wanted to do in life was to be happy. Since coming from a large family, realizing the importance of money in our lives, I thought the only way to happiness was to make enough money so that I could acquire the things that would make me happy. Being that I was a loner, very ambitious, and not afraid to work, I sought out a job at 9 years old, realizing that some day I would be rich. Upon graduation at 18, I had saved up $20,000. I then invested in property, real estate, businesses, cars, and motorcycles. By the age of 21, I had acquired well over a million dollars worth of holdings.

The problem was that I was still unhappy, empty and void. I then turned to drinking as a solution. But, because I neglected myself, I neglected my businesses and my empire started to crumble before my eyes as well as myself. I was even beginning to lose interest in bikes. I was then faced with going through bankruptcy and losing everything.

Still searching for the truth in life, I found myself listening to a former drinking brother of mine who was sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ with me. He pointed out in the Bible that all have sinned and come short of the glory of God, but that God demonstrated his love towards us in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

Because Jesus paid the price for my sins, all that I needed to do was to humbly ask him to come into my lige, to forgive me og my sins, and that he would be faithful and just to cleanse me from all unrighteousness. I would then have access into heaven, being made a new creature. That day, "April fool's day," 1979 I asked Jesus into my life and I was born again into the family of God, no longer to be a fool for the devil but to serve #1.

As I read the Bible, I found out that if I did God's thind, and not my own, that God would give me the desires of my heart. I may not be a millionaire today, but I'm richer now than I ever would have been. I you would have told me prior to 1979 that I would be riding a motorcycle for Jesus, I would have said, you are crazy. For you see, at that time, I had this same motorcycle but it was painted with outlaw motorcycle scenes and naked women. This motorcycles demonstrates the change that Jesus has made in my life, my more importantly, what Jesus can do in your life if you'll just trust him. 

Jn. 14:6
Jesus said: I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. 

Matt. 7:13, 14
Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many will there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto live, and few there be that find it. 

Being convinced that I am a sinner, and believing that Christ died for me, I now receive Him as my personal Saviour, I acknowledge Him as my Lord, and with His help I intend to witness for Him before men.

In everything give thanks; for this is the
will of God inChrist Jesus for you
(1 Thessalonians 5:18).

Give thanks In Everything? 

I was scheduled to attend a Moto Guzzi Rally in Lake Eufaula, Oklahoma on July 26-28 [1996]. When the rallies are small, relatively moral and close to home, I often take my [at the time] six-year-old daughter, Shekinah, with me. It is her job to look for opportunities to share Jesus with people and she sings before the Sunday morning worship service. Besides that, it is a neat time for a dad and daughter to spend some time together.

On Saturday evening of this event, a small crowd from the rally gathered at an Italian restaurant. People began to ask me questions and it almost seemed like a public forum for CMA. I used this unique opportunity to lift up Jesus. Afterwards, several expressed that they had never been so touched, not even in a church service. I didn't have much to eat that night, but God was obviously feeding people spiritually.

The next day, we headed home, traveling east on State Highway 9 about 65 miles an hour. I always "tie" Shekinah to me with a bungee cord in case she falls asleep. Believe me, she didn't sleep on this ride! Just east of Keota, Oklahoma, I crested a hill and saw a van turning onto the highway into the lane opposite me. Swinging wide to make its maneuver, the van completely occupied my lane. Instinctively, I braked hard until I eventually lost traction on the front wheel and lost control of the motorcycle. That's when God took control. As the bike went down, God saw fit to move our entire rig - trailer and motorcycle - to the right side of the road, thus avoiding a head-on collision with the van. While all of this was happening, Shekinah and I remained in an upright riding position.

As the bike continued to careen down the highway, I felt the seat coming loose. I had a choice: hand onto the handlebars or let go and ride the seat. I chose to let go. It's as if we were raptured out of sure catastrophe, because the bike flipped before crashing into a tree and coming to a sudden, upside-down halt, its forks tangled in a barbed wire fence. The trailer I was pulling flipped, as well, but never disconnected from the bike.

When Shekinah and I finally came to a stop on our small, but sufficient mode of transportation, I immediately realized that I didn't feel any pain. Shekinah was crying, but as I checked her out, I didn't find any sign of injury on her, either. God graced me with the ability to calm her, and witnesses pulled over and prayed for us. Neither of us had anything to show for going down on a motorcycle at 65 miles an hour! 

God took control! 
Neither Greg nor his six-year-old daughter, Shekinah,
had anything to show for going down at 65 mph.
An ambulance arrived an the technicians insisted on taking Shekinah to the hospital because "98% of motorcycle accidents result in injury." The doctors, however, verified what we already knew and Cyndi picked us up at the hospital.

The next day, I hauled the bike and trailer home. Two days later, I rode a bus to Washington to pick up Wayne Henderson's CMA bike as he was scheduled for a new one. I will ride this 1500 Honda GoldWing for the remainder of the year while I decide what to do concerning my bike.

It has been my experience as a Christian that all things do work together for the good to them who love God and are called according to His purpose. This doesn't mean that all things that happen are good things, but that they ultimately develope Christ-likeness in us. Therefore, in everything we can give thanks knowing that He is working out His will in and through our lives.
