20 years racing on track… 23 years keeping the Faith

20 years racing on track... 23 years keeping the Faith

“20 years racing with Nike…20 years winning. But it’s not just the shoes…it’s the FAITH.”

Many are the pl…

Many are the plans in a man’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.
Proverbs 19:21

In his heart a man plans his course, but the Lord determines his steps.
Proverbs 16:9

The lot is cast into the lap, but its every decision is from the Lord.
Proverbs 16:33

Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and your plans will succeed.
Proverbs 16:3

Now listen, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city, spend a year there, carry on business and make money.” Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. Instead, you ought to say, “If it is the Lord’s will, we will live and do this or that.”
James 4:13-15

The LORD Almighty has sworn, “Surely, as I have planned, so it will be, and as I have purposed, so it will stand.
Isaiah 14:24

Don’t boast of Tomorrow. Make the most of your Today. Set your plans at the center of God’s will. He will lead you the way.

Against the Flow

For most people, the NORM is their Norm.
For me…my Norm are the EXCEPTIONS.

Christ was always an exception, and always did the exceptional. If I say that I am a follower and disciple of Christ, then I am called to live that way.

Why this blog

The Bible clearly states that from the overflow of the heart, the mouth speaks. It did not only mean what we say, it also meant what we like talking about, what we do, and what we post.
What we normally post or talk about actually reflect who we arewhat makes up the core of our characterhow we are spiritually, and what composes our thoughts most of the time. If we observe the frequency of our posts (e.g. FaceBook, Twitter, Instagram, Path, blogs, etc.) and what the nature of our posts are, especially our STATUSES, is God really at the center of it all? Just a thought that crossed my mind while watching a number of my friends bent into living the “social media” world.
If God commanded us to give 10% into tithe, does that not also mean that we devote AT LEAST 10% OF FOCUSED COMMITTED TIME in our day to HIM who gave His all to us? Are we more present in our cellphones, in computers, in TV, and in the internet than we are in His Word? Do we “meditate on it day and night”? After all, that’s actually the Key to being Prosperous and Successful. Don’t start wondering why you’re not.
 
And so with this, I’d like to tell you why I’m writing this blog…
I have never been a blogger… because I do not have the luxury of time to sit down and post things in the internet, neither am I a fan of divulging my private thoughts. But I always had the passion to write about the one true God who created me, sustained my faith, and loved me unconditionally. Most of the time, I only write all my meditations, thoughts, and convictions in my personal journal during my quiet devotional times with the Lord. But this time, HE has given me the directive to share it to my fellow brethren and hopefully enrich their journey as they run the race homewardbound to heaven.
I hope the lessons I learn along the way in my walk with the Lord will also help you in yours. That is the burden that God has given me. Pilgrims of Heaven… Aliens of this World… Let’s WALK IN THE TRUTH on this JOURNEY HOME together.
