30 day blog challenge day 29: someone who inspires me.

I have four people who are extremely inspirational to me in my life. Lets start with the one you all know.

My wifeme and beky.jpg

There is so much that I have to say about this amazing woman that I have started a series of blogs about her. It is called she raised me and it will continue once the thirty day blog challenge is over. To view the first post click the link below:

She raised me part 1

 

James

If it wjames-editasn’t for my cousin James I wouldn’t know what it feels like to have a brother. He is a male figure that I can look up to. He once lived an extremely troublesome life but turned it all around entirely. He is married with kids and is completely lacking in care when it comes to financials. He isn’t rich by any means, but for some reason never worries about a dollar. He used to be a follower of Christ but has fallen away from his faith. Now with every conversation we have I spend a majority of it trying to convince him of the legitimacy of scripture and the life of Jesus Christ. He is hard headed but will definitely come around and when he does I will probably cry because it will mean he is officially my true brother. My brother in Christ! I will definitely write about him more in the future

 

My mommy 🙂11751474_10203153657480890_4493624322759876004_n

Tomorrow’s post is dedicated completely to the wonderful woman that you see beside me. You will learn a lot more about her then so for now I will just say this, I spend a lot of my time getting on her nerves and joking with her. She goes above and beyond when it comes to support and I know that I can count on her no matter what. Also I think it is worth mentioning that without a shadow of a doubt I AM HER FAVORITE CHILD. haha 🙂

 

 

Jesus

jesus-returnsLast but not least, “There is none like You, O LORD; You are great, and great is Your name in might (Jeremiah 10:6).” My lord and savior Jesus Christ is my greatest source of inspiration. One can search high and low but no matter where you look it is impossible to find something in the dark. “Then Jesus again spoke to them, saying, “I am the Light of the world; he who follows Me will not walk in the darkness, but will have the Light of life“” (John 8:12). I walk in light as I follow the path set forth by Jesus and am honored to place my foot into His shoes that I will never be able to fill. Jesus in all of His ways, in all of His truth, throughout His life, Inspires me to follow The way, the truth and the life which He so veraciously describes Himself as being. Jesus I replace your crown of thorns with a crown of praise as I lift up my eyes to the hills from which comes my help (psalm 121:1-2 paraphrased)! I acknowledge you as the head of my life and offer you my heart as a thrown for you to sit upon. I choose the narrow road that leads to everlasting life and every step I take, every word I speak and write and all that I do is inspired by you Lord.

These are the people who inspire me! Who inspires you? leave a comment below telling me about your source of inspiration. 🙂 Frog it as always family (Fully Rely On God).

30 day blog challenge day 28: Something/Someone I miss.

The Someone

I miss a few people but my mind is eased and the desire to have them close to me fades when I think about the fact that the three people were all followers of Christ and God fearing individuals. The first of the three is my aunt Volita whom we called Dita. I wrote her on day 15 of this 30 day blog challenge, significant childhood memories. The second of the three is my grandmother. I wish I would have spent more time with her before she passed away. I feel like in comparison to a lot of my other family members I didn’t have as close of a relationship with her and it makes me sad at times. Lastly I miss my great grandmother. I don’t remember her very well because she passed away while I was young but one thing I do miss is the unity she brought to my family. She solved every problem with God and made sure all of us were keeping up with the Lord. After she passed away all hell broke loose so to speak. The unity ceased, rivalries broke out and God became a bit of a distant memory.

The something

Sometimes I find myself missing the days of innocent ignorance. The days when I didn’t know about all of the troubles of this world. The days when my most difficult decision was which flavor candy I wanted to by. Today when one looks at the condition of the world it is easy to conclude that all hope is lost haha. The government is corrupt, no matter who we vote for they are all in cahoots and have the same motives. Schools have an agenda and that agenda is to poison the minds, confuse and mislead the youth under the guise of fairness, equality and truth. But if one pays attention it is easy to see the deception and that these people are all wolves in sheeps clothing. Knowing all of this worries me at times because I fear for my children and grandchildren.

But there is one thing greater than the pain the I experience when I find myself missing my loved ones. There is some one greater than all of the anxiety I get when thinking about the future of my descendants. There is one thing covering myself and my family that will not allow the duplicity of Satan to trap us within his web of confusion, lies and sin.

God is greater! Great enough to part the red sea, calm a storm and walk on raging waters. Great enough to heal the sick give sight to the blind and drive out demons. Great enough to form the universe with nothing but his words. Greater than the pain I feel when I’m hurting and the fear that overwhelms me when I worry. Greater than the the stronghold that this world has over my family. God is greater than the possibility of a negative outcome. When my chances of succeeding are slim to none God is the variable that catapults me beyond prosperity. Jesus provides peace when chaos ensues and a way when the world minimizes my options.

With confidence I look forward to the future knowing that myself and my family are all in the hands of our wonderful creator! God has the world in His hands, my relatives in His presence and my future under His provision.

“So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand” (Isaiah 41:10)

Do you have something or someone you miss? Leave a comment below telling me about it or them! I cant wait to hear about it 🙂

Till next time keep frogging it fam (Fully Rely On God)

30 day blogging challenge day 27: My dream super power

Range

super me

This is a drawing I drew of myself as a super hero a few years ago. The super hero name I chose was Range and I had the ability to manipulate all aspects of time and morph into a big black lion.

That was my dream power back then, but what is my dream power today???

It wouldn’t be far fetched to say we are like super hero’s today. We rescue ourselves and others from spiritual damnation by leading people to the kingdom, praying for others and even encouraging our brothers and sisters. Just because we can not see the danger someone is in doesn’t mean there is no threat.

Ephesians 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

“We wrestle not against flesh and blood” indicates that the war that we are engaged in is not a physical battle against ourselves or man. Falling to sin is not simply a matter of making a mistake and displeasing God.

“…but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” This refers to the devil and his angels (the angels that rebelled with him). Each time you fall to sin you give into temptation that they set before you. Every day that goes by you have one of these fallen angels watching you and stalking your every move, implementing every strategy they can in order to keep you from following the will of God. When you undergo spiritual growth and grow closer to God something physically changes about you in the spiritual realm. This is why the moment you begin to get on fire for God, bad things begin to happen or distractions increase ten fold. For this reason it is important to stay close to God and dawn the full armor of God that is referred to in scripture.


731debe34ca99e02e959f45cbd6954b2

Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints (Ephesians 6:11).

 

When you allow distractions to prevail and sin to overtake you, you wave your white flag and say to a demon, “you win, do with me as you please.” So fight for God and for your spirit, don’t let a fallen angel who has lost their grace and beauty keep you from obtaining your glorified body and inherited kingdom. Don’t give in to Satan’s temptation, he and his followers know how this story ends and they are not happy about it. They are all being thrown into the lake of fire and are looking to bring as many people with them as possible. It is all they exist for because there doesn’t seem to be any implications in scripture that they have the option to repent and even if they did, would they? They were able to dwell in the presence of the almighty God, witness His glory in its fullness and still rebel against Him. This was the ultimate evil as there was no temptation at this time. Therefore these beings in rebelling against God became the embodiment and epitome of evil.

If I could have a super power today it would be to go into the spiritual realm and be able to see the unseen. While there, I would dawn the full armor of God and combat these demons that have strongholds over potential believers.

THAT WOULD BE SO AWESOME WOULDN’T IT ?!?!?!

Lol I am such a geek! Anyway if you could have any super power in the world what would it be and why? Also what would your super hero name be? Leave a comment below telling me all about your alter ego hahaha.

Keep frogging it fam (Fully Rely On God)!!!

 

30 day blogging challenge day 26: Weird things I do when I’m alone.

LOOK.jpg

Luke 8:17 For there is nothing hidden that will not be disclosed, and nothing concealed that will not be known or brought out into the open.

I am very rarely alone as my wife and I literally do everything together and I mean EVERYTHING together. Privacy became a thing of the past the day she moved in with me.

With that being said, there isn’t much that I do alone but here is a list of a couple of things that I tend to do when I have a second to myself.

1.) Talk to 1331282197216245myself

Everyone says your crazy for doing this, but I think that your crazy if you don’t. I talk to myself everyday it helps me to think straight and actually process my thoughts clearly. What I usually say is muffled though, not like in a loud clear voice. That would be awkward hahaha!

 

2.) Acting out scenarios in the mirrohow-to-stop-stuttering-stand-in-front-of-the-mirror-to-practise-talkingr

Okay this one I will admit is a bit weird and I tend to stop suddenly when my wife comes in hahaha. Sometimes I plan what I say to people in case I get into a biblical debate, or happen to bump into someone I know. I never feel like its weird until my wife busts in and says,  “uuuhhh what were you doing???”

3.) Flex in the mirror and thinba5dd52b8dc73ef4f79447862db304c4k about what I wish I could improve on

A few years ago a friend of mine and I started a fitness group together. We would go to the local park and do a variety of different exercises and wound recruiting a few of our friends to come along. We were super avid about this and would go to the park five days a week and take two rest days. at the end of our first summer working out I had gained 17 lbs of muscle and was proud of my progress. The following summer we were back at it again, when one Friday I went for a routine check up. I had never been so excited to take my shirt off in public lol. My doc did all the necessary testing and drew some blood and told me he would tell me the results in a couple of days. The weekend passed and I got a call early Monday morning my doctor told me to come in as soon as possible. I went to his office he sat me down and asked me what my physical  activity was like. When I told him I poked my chest out proudly and said, “Well doc I play quite a few sports and intensely work out five days a week!” He replied asking, “Do you do weight training as well?” “Why yes. Yes I do!” says me with a huge grin thinking he was going to congratulate me or something lol. Then my doctor hits me with, “Well I have good news and bad news, which one do you want first?” As my countenance went from happy to worried I replied, “I’ll take the bad news first.” My doctor proceeded to tell me that I had a low muscle and blood enzyme count and that my intense work outs actually had an inverse affect on my health. The harder I worked the harder the enzymes I did have would have to work, which could cause them to burst releasing a substance into my blood stream that could negatively affect my liver, resulting in death. Silence overwhelmed the room as I stood there with my mouth open and a puzzled look on my face. “No more working out for you okay, stop the weight training and intense work outs immediately” My doctor emphatically states, I reply with, “Okay doc no problem, for how long?” “For good, no more for the rest of your life, what ever calisthenics you do, do them in moderation, if you push yourself you’ve gone too far.” A broken, befuddled, flabbergasted look fell upon my face as I was completely in awe about what I just heard. He patted me on the back and told me to relax and that everything was fine because they caught it just in time before any damage was done. This was the good news, but it sure didn’t make me feel very good. Coincidentally, I ran into my buddy that I started the fitness group with on my way home from my appointment. With great zeal on his face he asked me what time we were heading out today to work out. I told him the news but played it off as though I was fine. I walked away because I felt my eyes watering up and didn’t want him to see me cry. So today the weird thing I do is look in the mirror and think about what I could be if only I could work out again.

1 Peter 5:6 Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you.”

Although sometimes I get down about this because I don’t enjoy not being a big strong man lol, I see the blessing in it all. Truth be told I needed to be humbled, I had an unhealthy confidence level because I admired my work ethic and results a little too much. I was a praying and bible reading man, but nothing really came before my work outs and I’m sure you can tell by my conversation and demeanor with my doctor that I was on a bit of a high horse haha.

Since that day I learned to seek confidence in who I am from God instead of an outward appearance.  Jeremiah 17:7, “But blessed is the one who trusts in the LORD, whose confidence is in him.” I learned that it is more attractive to be a skinny humble man than an arrogant buff dude. I learned that God does not measure strength by the amount of weight a man can lift, but by the amount of patience a man exhibits for God in the midst of a storm. I learned that strength has nothing to do with muscles but everything to do with faith. The old me wanted me to be as big as Goliath but God wanted me to be David.

Thank you God for humbling my heart, for bringing me to a point of brokenness so that I can look at the pieces of me and realize they don’t belong there in the first place. For helping me to reassemble myself better than I was before. Thank you for transforming me and renewing my mind, that I will be able to discern between your good and perfect will instead of conforming to the ideals of this world. Thank you God, thank you! In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.

If there are any insecurities you may have, seek God about them. All of our troubles and worries are there to bring us closer to God. Talk to Him about it and seek confidence in the Lord.

Do you have any weird things that you do when your alone? Leave a comment below fill me in on the details lol.

Keep on frogging it Fam! (Fully Rely On God) rrribbit

 

30 day blogging challenge day 25: If I were an animal what would I be?

601210-cute-little-squirrel

Yes a squirrel ladies and gentleman! I know it isn’t the most ferocious or powerful animal but whenever I see these little critters around my neighborhood my heart drops.

Growing up I absolutely loved lions! This partially had to do with the fact that my zodiac sign is a Leo. I eventually stopped paying attention to all of the zodiac stuff and when I did I had a new appreciation for lions because of Jesus.index_24

Jesus is said to be the lion of the tribe of Judah in scripture.

Revelation 5:5

Then one of the elders said to me, “Do not weep! See, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has triumphed. He is able to open the scroll and its seven seals.”

The world ain’t big enough for two lions! It’s either me or you Jesus.

Ssuper-dmn3-squirrel-sm-1o I will humbly step down and serve as a squirrel lol. Save the king of the jungle for the King of kings and just be a simple wanderer of the earth in search of the acorn that I buried. I would like to be a smart squirrel though, like a genius among’st squirrels, almost like a super squirrel.

Squirrels also remind me of myself, I was always a fast and hyper young lad that loved to play around. I like to think of the acorns as God’s will for me and the searching, gathering, burying and resurfacing represents me diligently seeking the will of God, collecting blessings and wisdom, storing as much of what I learn in my noggin and using those jewels later on in life for myself and others.

 

So what animal is your favorite and why? If it differs from your favorite, what animal would you be and why? Leave a comment below and let me know hahaha.

Keep frogging it family, or in this case keep squirreling it hahahaha!

30 day blog challenge day 24: How do I see myself in 10 years

 

warpingspace

I honestly have no idea where I will be in 10 years. God has a funny way of sticking me in certain places and situations and I’ll think my life is going to revolve around it and then He places me somewhere else.He is just so unpredictable with His direction for me that I’m just like what ever Lord. I’m not even gonna bother planning because your just gonna change it anyway.

However my goal is to become an evangelist, blog/comic book/novel author and maybe a vlogger too. I made a video on instagram the other day, which you can check out it is in the sidebar 🙂 If you have an account give me a follow. Lol but the video was well received and I think I will do more of those in the future (only about God of course).

If anywhere, I see myself having all of these things set in motion in the next ten years. My hopes are to make it my main source of income. I seek to spend my life spreading the Gospel and spending time with my wife and children.

Ultimately God’s will be done!

proverbs 19:21  Many plans are in a man’s heart, but the Lord’s decree will prevail.

proverbs 16:9 A man’s heart plans his way, but the LORD determines his steps.

Do you have any goals at all? If so what are they? Leave a comment below telling me about your dreams and aspirations hahaha.

30 day blog challenge day 23. Where I would like to visit!

 

edenriver

I would love to visit a land where even the moss on the water serves a healthy purpose, where the trees bring forth fruit that are life giving, Where a glorious light shines through fluffy clouds and a reflection of its magnificent can be seen in the waters. A land where the only trouble is not being able to stay awake to enjoy its splendor.  A land that is so sacred only a being with a pure mind, body and spirit can inhabit it. I wish to visit the Garden of Eden.

Continue reading “30 day blog challenge day 23. Where I would like to visit!”

30 day blog challenge day 21. My favorite one true pairing.

Todays topic is a question that can be interpreted in two different ways. So I will answer both.

Interpretation 1 

If you could pick anyone in the world to be your perfect match who would it be?

Rebekah 

My one true pairing is my amazing Bekywife. I wrote a little bit about her in a post called she raised me. I plan to make my writings about her a series because writing about her would take much more than a single post. All of the things she has taught me throughout life, The way she took a confused directionless boy and set him on a path toward Jesus and righteousness and the lessons I’ve learned concerning how to properly love a woman calls for a long long series of posts lol! She is amazing to say the least and if I could pick any woman in the world no matter time or place She would easily be the one I choose every single time. Without thought or consideration without wasting a second this extraordinary woman is the only one for me!!!!

Interpretations 2

Your favorite couple in world real or fictional.

My favorite pairing of two individuals I would have to say is the couple that I am writing about in my comic book/novel hahaha. Their names are Philip and Ann! To learn more about them you are going to have to stay tuned 😉

Do you have a perfect match from any time period? Or do you have a significant other that you just can’t imagine yourself without?

Tell me about them in the comment section, and keep frogging it my friends

(FROG – Fully Rely On God)

30 day blog challenge day 20. If I could invite anyone to a dinner who are the 10 people I would invite?

dinner at the round table.jpg

Guest #1

My wife

Rebekah.jpg

The first person I have to invite is my wife. I would be selfish to deprive her of this amazing event lol. It would be an ultimate gift to her to sit at this dinner full of great historical figures!

Guest #2

Jesus

Jesus

This man Is the reason for everything that I do. I look up to Him, confide in Him, rest in Him, glorify Him, praise Him, love Him, seek Him, worship Him… If you don’t get it by now my next guest would be Jesus. There is just so much I would love to ask Him and tell Him face to face. I mean you’d have to be crazy not to want Jesus at your dinner whether you are a believer or not.

Guest #3

Moses

moses.jpg

I would love to ask Moses so many questions about all of the miracles he witnessed. I wonder all the time what it was like having to put of with the Israelites, wondering around in the wilderness for 40 years and then finally when it comes time to enter the promised land being forbidden to. Also I would love to hear what he would have to say about his experiences with God up on mount Sinai.

Guest #4

Adam

Adam

I’d have to invite Adam because I have to ask the why question. Why Adam? Why did ya have to eat the fruit when you knew good and well God said not to? Also how did it feel to be kicked out of paradise and stripped of your glory? Did the fruit taste good? What was it like living for 930 years, What is the original language and names of all the animals? hahaha I’ve got so many questions for everyone I guess lol

Guest #5

John the baptistJohn the baptist.JPG

Sorry for the graphic photo but its truth what can I say. Anyone who has read the Gospels I’m sure asked the question Why in the world did you eat bugs? Seriously I wonder though, how did it feel to be John the baptist. He was such a peculiar person, between the way he dressed, what he ate and the things he did, his life was far from ordinary. How did it feel to live your life preparing the way for Jesus and not even being able to see Him fulfill all of what He came for. Especially because He was your cousin and was pretty much the same age. Were you frightened during your last moments, or did you feel glad that such a rough life was finally coming to an end and you would be able to rest in paradise soon?

Guest #6

John the Apostle

apostle john.jpg

It is believed that the Apostle John is the one who wrote the book of Revelation. I really just want to hear about the visions and how they made John feel. I would also like for him to explain his visions in great detail while my next guest is in the room.

Guest #7

Joseph the son of Jacob

Joseph

Joseph had prophetic dreams and interpreted other peoples dreams so hopefully he would be able to tell me exactly what all of the revelations meant, symbolized and represented. Also he has such an amazing story. Being sold into slavery by his siblings, being accused of getting a little too close to Potifar’s wife, thus going from a slave to prisoner, interpreting a fortunate dream for someone and asking him to remember you only to be forgotten for a while, finally being released from prison and becoming second in command next to pharaoh helping all of Egypt and your family etc… There’s so much to talk about hahaha. This dinner would have to last like forever.

Guest #8

King David

davidDavid-Vs-Goliath

King David, the man after God’s own heart. There is so much to learn from this gentleman. His bravery and skills as a warrior came strictly from his confidence that the God that he worshiped would make him prosperous. We are all warriors like David, just not on a physical battlefield. We are spiritual warriors and we do our fighting with prayer. I would love to learn from David. To be considered a man after God’s own heart is a prestigious title. I’d rather be that than the president or king of any land here on earth.

Guest #9

The apostle Peter

Peter

The apostle Peter was probably the closest to Jesus of all the disciples. I wrote about him in a post called doubt . It would be amazing learning about what it was like witnessing God in the flesh. I would also love to ask why it was so hard for him to have faith in certain instances.

Guest #10

Elijah

elijah

I would love to invite Elijah to the dinner because there is so much to learn from such a powerful prophet. It would be amazing if he could take me back to the moment he was brought to heaven. Sheesh, I just realized that Elijah and Enoch are the oldest humans of all time hahaha.

Clearly this dinner would be simply for me to ask an infinite amount of questions lol. I would love to listen and learn from such great people and having my wife beside me experiencing it all would make it that much better!!!

How about you though? If you could invite 10 people to a dinner historical, current futuristic or fictional who would it be?

Leave a comment below listing the people you’d invite and why 🙂 Lets chat about this lol

30 day blogging challenge day 19. My dream Job!

 

20160825_163855

My dream job has everything to do with my passion. If I could turn what I’m passionate about into a living I would be so grateful to God. I pray He blesses me with a career based on spreading His word. I plan to attend theology school next fall so hopefully that will equip me with everything I need to know to be the world greatest evangelist. I also would like to start a website and post all of my experiences there in hopes that people will be encouraged to stay on the path of righteousness. Lastly I would like to create a comic book/novel that I would post weekly to the site for free. I don’t plan to make anyone pay to hear what I have to say or view my content. Every bit of wisdom that I received was given to me freely by God, so I will give every bit of wisdom I have freely to anyone who follows my journey.

So with all of that being said, my dream job is to be a website owning, comic book/novel author that evangelizes 🙂
