It's only right that I make a post about the first Razorback game today! All my boys have been preparing ever since the end of the season last year awaiting to show the nation that we have not only improved but also have became closer as a team. Through difficult times like last year, it enabled us to come closer as a student body and rely on God! God was able to bring one of the most amazing and humbling coaches in the NCAA, Brett Bielema. Now that we can see that our future is bright, it's our job to put our faith in God and lift up our team and let every other school know what's up! It's time for us to do big thangs this season!! Whose with me?? "All things are possible if you believe." Mark 9:23
A lot of people ask me why did i create a website and why did i want to start an inspirational movemen. That answer is simple. I want to share my story so that it will inspire others to share their stories and be proud of what God has brought them through."But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear" (1 Peter 3:15 KJV). I want young people to stop feeling like they're too cool to thank God for what He has done for them. Why be ashamed of the one that brought you through another day.
On the University of Arkansas campus, my friends and I have always noticed a few individual's that hold up signs talking about "Don't be a Christian. You have to change your life to become one" or "Jesus only accepts people who are perfect or who want to be perfect. Don't join Christianity." I don't know where they got all that from but obviously they don't read the bible enough. They do not know enough about the mighty God that I know. The God and the Jesus that I know not only accepts individual's like me but He accepts everyone. No matter how you look or how you are."There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus" Galatians 3:28. Christ Jesus views us as "Christian's" not as black, white, female or male. We are all one person to Jesus Christ. If you haven't found Jesus Christ yet, just know that He accepts everyone it doesn't matter how you look or how you act. It states that in Galatians 3:28! Don't always believe what everyone says. Go to the Lord our maker and become close to him because he can do exceedingly and abundantly!
Nobody's life is just perfect and A1! We can't avoid the passing of a friend or relative or when something bad happens. Most times we feel sorry for ourselves and become selfish when something doesn't go our way. Instead of letting it be a negative situation turn into a positive. The Lord says, "Yet if any man suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed; but let him glorify God on this behalf"(1 Peter 4:16 KJV). Things might not be perfect but at least God still blesses us each and every day. Before one of our friend(s) or relative(s) passed away The Lord was good enough to give us such a wonderful person. Before you made a bad grade on a test, at least He woke you up to take the test this morning. Have a great day and don't let one situation dictate your whole day!
Today's daily message is a little bit different. Last night me and a few of my friends literally were driving back to campus to take one of my friend's back to his place. We were traveling down Oakland street and we got hit by a car heading the opposite direction. The car hit us and our vehicle rotated several times and ended up the other direction. The other car ran the stop sign and hit us. I'm not good with things like this so I was shook up pretty bad. We literally were just inches a way of being with The Lord. I thought it was over with but God was with us and He knew the work that we've been doing on this Earth and he let us see another day. Even though I was still shook up, hurting and felt bad, I didn't let others see that. I still was able to brighten some people's day and make others smile. Whatever you're going through, always know that if The Lord lets you see another day, thank Him and appreciate what He has given to you because He could've easily took away Me, Vernon, Jamalin and Stanley's life last night. Brighten somebody's day with just a smile because you never know what somebody is going through. God will always protect the ones that He loves. We're blessed. "All things are possible if you believe." Mark 9:23
When you praise The Lord and give him thanks for everything He will reward you!! God will reward the ones that are not scared to praise Him. "Praising God, and having favour with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved" (Acts 2:47 KJV). The Lord added to a church everyday just because He knew the direction that the church was going. Lets all go the right direction so God will add and built onto us. Have a great day!!
A lot of young people don't like talking or learning about Christianity because they feel as if they need go be perfect or they feel like they need to be cool in front of friends. They feel like they know they're gonna sin so they feel like they shouldn't get closer to God. I say to you today that its all about doing the right thing even when you are doing wrong. "Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good" (Romans 12:21 KJV). The Lord knows we are not perfect but he rewards us for the great things that we do as Christians. Overcome evil by doing good things for people! Simple as that!! Be a good Christian!
Learning to love one another is difficult for everyone. If someone instantly hurts you or does you wrong, it's not easy to forgive them and still continue to love them. But we have to make a change in our society. We need to start learning how to love one another instead of disrespecting and treating others wrong. If Jesus Christ was able to endure the mental and physical pain fro the Romans and everybody else, we should be able to take the little things in life and do what he says. No matter what the situation is. The bible says, "For even Christ pleased not himself; but, as it is written, The reproaches of them that reproached thee fell on me" Romans 15:3. We need to start pleasing others and helping people in need! Help inspire others to do the same thing. Ultimately that will create a better tomorrow.
One of the hardest things in life is forgiving someone that has done you dirty or wrong. We all have experienced a time like this where we feel like we can't forgive someone that has treated us poorly. But the Bible says, "And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you" Ephesians 4:32. Ultimately we have to respect the fact they did us wrong and we have to grow from that. If God can forgive the things that we have done wrong then we can do the same with others. Make the effort to forgive someone who hurt you. It doesn't mean y'all have to be best friends but forgive them just like God did for our sins. He washed them clean.
In life, we are thrown into situations that are so difficult that we begin to wonder if we will make it. Whether that's losing a loved one, a difficult situation or someone that cared a lot about you moves away. Whatever it is we have to be able to bear and weather the certain situation that God has put us through. There's a reason for everything and I thank God for each and every person that has entered and exited my life because they have molded me into the person that I am today. My best friend and the person I always looked to may be gone but, you know what? I still thank God for the countless memories that I have experienced with not just my best friend but each and every person. "I, therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you to walk worthy of the calling with which you were called," Ephesians 4:1 NKJV. We all will go our separate ways, its just a matter of time. We all have a mission to take our talents somewhere just like Lebron James. We have to realize that certain talent that we enjoy doing and follow our dreams and destiny. If there is a certain talent that you just can't stop thinking about, go after it! Don't let anyone hold you back or do something because of another person. Life will forever be tough, but life also goes on.
