“Committed to Everybody and Everything But God!”

Lou Coleman

By Lou Coleman

That’s a darn shame! Yet you expect God to bless you! Well forget about it! Ain’t going to happen! God made it very clear in [Matthew 6:33] He said, “Seek ye FIRST the Kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” What part of “Seek ye FIRST the Kingdom of God” do you not understand? To seek means to have a keener sense of the spiritual.  It is to have that spiritual vision that there is more to life than the physical world. Being committed to everybody and everything but God… Slap yourself!

I want you to know that twice Haggai instructed the people, “Consider your ways.” [Haggai 1:5-7]. The word considers means to give careful thought to. It was time for the people to do some serious self-examination before the Lord. Haggai wanted the people to stop long enough in their busy schedules to evaluate their life in light of God’s Word. He wanted them to measure the consequences of their actions. Samuel urges the people of Israel to consider what great things God has done! “Yes, consider…and fear the LORD!  Consider…and serve the LORD!  Give yourself completely to Him” Samuel said. When we recognize what God has done for us through his son Jesus Christ, the only response is to give ourselves completely to him. Nothing significant ever happens in life without commitment. Your commitments determine your future. You can’t lose by being committed to God. The Bible tells us in [2 Chronicles 16:9] that God is looking for people whose hearts are fully committed to Him so that He can bless and use them. Paul put it this way, ‘Even before the world was made, God had already chosen [you] to be His through your union with Christ, so that you would be holy and without fault before him [Ephesians 1:4].

 I tell you if reflecting on God’s mercies doesn’t move you, then you are in trouble? Where would you be without God’s love and forgiveness? Where would you be without God’s presence in your life? What kind of hope would you have without him? [Psalm 37:5-6, 34-40]. God wants you to know that, “No other person must come before Him: not your children, your mate, your parents, or your best friend, not even.” Consider the greatest commandment. “Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, all thy mind, all thy soul, and all thy strength.” That is the greatest commandment and the second is like unto it, “Love thy neighbor as yourself and you shall live.”

I don’t know about you but I surrender my life to God because He’s given His life to me.  If God never did another thing for me, never blessed anything else in my life, never answered another prayer, never gave me another morsel of food or never said another kind word my way, I owe Him my all right now because of what He did for me on the cross. Paul writing about His own motivation in [1 Corinthians 15:10] stated, “But by the grace of God I am what I am, and I labor more abundantly than they all-yet not I, but the grace of God that was with me.” I commit to Christ because I’m grateful for my salvation. You know Jesus told the Ephesians that they stopped loving Him, and to fix that problem He told them to do two things: Remember the height from which they fell. And repent by doing the things they did at first. God expects unconditional surrender. Whatcha gonna do?

Remember, “There is a way that seems right to a man, but in the end it leads to death.” [Proverbs 16:25].

OnTrac Opens Their Largest Facility in Fontana

FONTANA, CA- OnTrac, a logistics company specializing in contracting small parcel shipping services in the Western United States, welcomed the public to their flagship facility on Thursday, June 22. The Fontana facility is over five times the size of the two previous facilities OnTrac has in nearby Ontario. With almost 600,000 square feet, this facility is now the largest facility company-wide and services Fontana, Ontario and the entire Inland Empire. 

Shield Healthcare Purchasing Director Jeff Lichtenstein says, “I’ve been with Shield Healthcare for about nine years. All this time I’ve had a relationship with OnTrac and it has been a great relationship. Being able to cut through the red tape and deal with the people we need to deal with on a quick basis is very valuable for Shield Healthcare. We would like to congratulate them on their new Fontana facility.”

The Fontana facility is one out of 19 facilities California-wide and allows OnTrac to process packages that are offloaded to Commerce, as well as gain tremendous efficiencies and flexibility to keep OnTrac agile for their customers. There are 115 dock doors and 8,000 packages an hour travel through this facility. Next year, OnTrac plans on fully automating the Fontana facility and will have the capability of moving 35,000 packages an hour means that a package can move from unload to load in about three and a half minutes to get out on the road to their destination. By processing packages faster and minimizing the time in the facility, OnTrac is not only more efficient in this building, but also throughout their entire eight-state footprint. 

“This facility is important to us. Not only is it our newest facility.  It is also our largest at just under 600,000 square feet,” says Laura Peterson, vice president of public relations and marketing. “We have improved our square footage by five or six times and we’ve tripled the number of employees. And more exciting is that next year, we plan on fully automating this building, which I believe will make us the first regional carrier to have a fully automated facility.”

With the expansion in facility size and additional packages, OnTrac has also tripled their staff from what it was before. There are over 300 people employed at this facility and are OnTrac is still hiring today. As peak season approaches, OnTrac will be hiring additional sorters to manage the influx of holiday shipping. Currently, OnTrac is hiring a total of 17 positions between AM Package Handlers, PM Package Handlers, IR Package Handlers, and a Linehaul Dispatch.

Loma Linda University Launches Diagnostic Medical Sonography Bachelor’s Degree

LOMA LINDA, CA- Loma Linda University’s School of Allied Health Professions has introduced a bachelor’s degree in diagnostic medical sonography, expanding the program from a certificate degree to meet the needs of the industry that is increasingly seeking graduates of a four-year program.

Applications are now being taken for the program’s first bachelor’s degree co-hort. The priority deadline to apply is October 15, with a final deadline of December 15.

Medical sonography, commonly known as ultrasound scanning, is a diagnostic medical procedure that uses high frequency sound waves to produce dynamic visual images of organs, tissues, or blood flow inside the body. Unlike X-rays, sonography is a radiation-free imaging modality.

Sonography is often used to examine many parts of the body, such as the abdomen, breasts, obstetrics & gynecology, prostate, heart and blood vessels. Sonography is increasingly being used in the detection and treatment of heart disease and vascular disease that can lead to a stroke. It is also used to guide fine-needle tissue biopsies. 

A sonographer may provide this service in a variety of medical settings where the physician is responsible for the use and interpretation of ultrasound procedures. Sonographers assist physicians in gathering sonographic data necessary to reach diagnostic decisions.

“This is such a rewarding field,” said Marie DeLange, program director for diagnostic medical sonography at Loma Linda University’s School of Allied Health Professions.

“There is great satisfaction and reward to be able to use critical thinking skills in partnering with physicians to determine a diagnosis to better care for the patient.”  

Loma Linda University’s diagnostic medical sonography degree is a 27-month program, approximately 80 percent of which is classroom coursework and 20 percent completed online. Students spend more than 30 hours a week in a clinical setting. Classes are held once a week for 2 to 5 hours.

Loma Linda University also offers a cardiac sonography certificate, which involves more in-depth study of the heart, including heart hemodynamics, normal anatomy, disease processes and patient treatment.

The cardiac sonography certificate program begins each autumn, and the program length is 12-months. This program prepares students to sit for the board exam and RDCS credentialing exam. All students are required to take and pass the ARDMS Standard Physics and Instrumentation (SPI) exam before completion of the program.

Sonography is a good fit for a career…

  • If you want to work in a fast-paced, satisfying career in the medical field…
  • If you seek a significant role on the health care team to help in patient diagnosis…
  • If you desire more responsibility, working closely with physicians.

The sonography programs at Loma Linda University offer:

  • A variety of clinical sites with extensive clinical hours…
  • A broad exposure to patient cases…
  • A unique student experience with experienced faculty who care about you…
  • A learning environment that supports and motivates you toward your success.

This news release follows last month’s announcement that the school has also expanded its nuclear medicine certificate into a bachelor’s degree.

“We continue to offer newly expanded programs so our students — and their future employers — will receive the greatest possible benefit for serving patients,” said Laura Alipoon, EdD, RT, chair of the school’s Department of Radiation Technology. “We look forward to announcing more expanded programs soon.”
