Returning

welcome back.png

Okay so it has been a while since I have written on here but if you have my Instagram you see that I haven’t stopped writing altogether. I have been posting mostly to Instagram because I simply didn’t have the time to compose a well thought out, punctually accurate and intelligent sounding blog Lol. So I will give a brief update as to what exactly has been going on.

1st MY DAUGHTER WAS BORN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Here is a video that I composed for my precious little lady.

 

The months leading up to her birth and the time following have been pretty hectic to say the least and once she was born I pretty much just stayed away from all social media for a while simply to enjoy her presence. All I have to say is God is so, so, so, so good

Other than this miraculous event, I have been writing a couple of books they are coming along well but will not be finished for quite some time. I will release them chapter by chapter online!

I also have a few scripts and recording equipment, I plan to make short Christian skits for wholesome entertainment (something that this world is seriously lacking right now).

Lastly I will be posting a majority of the things I posted to Instagram on here but in a more detailed well thought out post.

Thank you all for subscribing and following my journey through life I can’t wait to re-connect with you all.

The V card:My guest post for song of virginity

v-card

I wrote this a little while back for my wonderful sister in Christ Lene and really wanted to share it with the folks that follow me. Be sure to give Lene a visit because she has wonderful material, she’s super encouraging especially on the subject of waiting for marriage and she helped me out tremendously 🙂

Christ centered marriage. 

This is a guest post that I wrote for Mrs. Brown for her website married by his grace 

Why does the bible recommend that the relationship between a husband and wife resemble the relationship between Christ and the church?

To have a prosperous relationship with God you need to completely submit yourself to His will. You need to fully devote yourself to Him and only Him. Every decision you make should be done in prayer and consultation with the Lord, not by your own understanding. You must dwell in His word and walk the straight and narrow path that Jesus laid out for us. You must spend time with God, seeking Him, talking to Him and listening to Him. These are aspects of the role that the church plays in the relationship between ourselves and Christ.

When we play our part Jesus is always faithful in going above and beyond our expectations. He listens and answers our prayers; He helps us to overcome insurmountable odds; He intercedes on our behalf; He forgives time and time again; He loves us unconditionally; He never gives up on us; He is always there and He blesses us abundantly even though we don’t deserve it. These are aspects of the role that Jesus plays in the relationship between ourselves and Christ.

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 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.

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

30 day blog challenge day 16. What do I collect?

book collection.jpg

Growing up I had quite a few collections. As a toddler I used to collect interesting rocks that I would find on the ground and name them. When I was in third grade I collected these 25 cent toys called homies that came in a machine at the super market. When I was old enough to have my own gaming system I collected video games. Lastly in high school I collected toy cars.

30 day blogging challenge day 3. 5 of my pet peeves

This one is a pretty tough one to write because I’m not easily angered. Not much gets under my skin and I’m actually known as “the guy who is always happy and smiling” at work. Not only that but I truly do try to live by James 1:19,”My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry,” but nevertheless I am not perfect and here and there I do get annoyed.

These are my 5 pet peeves:

30 day blog challenge day 2. Things I’m bad at

Ya know, It is so ironic that while trying to think of the things that I’m bad at I actually wound up finding a whole bunch of things that I’m good at. I realize that not a lot of people are fortunate enough to say they are good at quite a few things so I just would like to acknowledge that I am truly grateful for every single thing that I have the slightest bit of skill in. Hopefully all that I am good at will lead me to leading someone else to Christ.

But when I do the things I am bad at boy does it get ugly hahaha. Okay so here is a list of the things that I am simply not very good at:
