Welcome to the very first post on my blog. I hope to encourage others by showing them that there are no limits to what’s possible as long as you believe. Sounds like some $89.95 seminar at the Holiday Inn conference room, right? Not quite. I’m no salesman, superhero or shining example of fantastic genetics; just an ordinary guy with a little bit of extraordinary faith. In fact, I never imagined that I’d be persuing a competitive athletic career, vlogs, or even church attendance in a not-so-distant past.
I, like many people, have that same story about being raised in the church and walking away when I was old enough to make my own decisions.That thread of commonality is probably one of the few things that most people would find as “normal” here in the South, if discussing your faith life wasn’t so awkward. What most people don’t seem to realize is that the people in the churches have that same story. It’s only the smallest percentage that have remained in the church throughout their life.
So, you may be asking, “What’s that have to do with me?” It means that it’s never too late to get reintroduced to your faith. I wouldn’t be where I am today if I had kept doing things my way. My health, my education, my opportunities, and my marriage would never have succeeded were it not for the love of Christ.
Success is the result of two things: faith and work. Philipphians 4:13 may be one of the Bible verses that many people in the strength community use, but they use it for good reason .
I can do all things through Christ which strengeneth me. KJV
I also find motivation in this Latin phrase:
Labor Omnia Vincit. “Hard work conquers all things”.
When faith and work are applied together, then nothing is impossible.
