“That is why the Holy Spirit says,

‘Today when you hear his voice, don’t harden your hearts as Israel did when they rebelled, when they tested me in the wilderness. There your ancestors tested and tried my patience, even though they saw my miracles for forty years. So I was angry with them, and I said, ‘Their hearts always turn away from me. They refuse to do what I tell them.’ So in my anger I took an oath: ‘They will never enter my place of rest.’”

Be careful then, dear brothers and sisters. Make sure that your own hearts are not evil and unbelieving, turning you away from the living God. You must warn each other every day, while it is still “today,” so that none of you will be deceived by sin and hardened against God. For if we are faithful to the end, trusting God just as firmly as when we first believed, we will share in all that belongs to Christ. (‭Hebrews‬ ‭3‬:‭7-14‬ NLT)

Like a good son to his father, always listen and never harden your heart. God loves you and what he says is perfect; he has feelings too. We will never understand his great plan, but that doesn’t mean we harden our hearts nor lose our faith in HIM.

Don’t Harden Your Hearts Today! Live and Be Faithful to God till The Very End.

Motivation Monday: Walk And Talk; Don’t Discuss Business Sitting Down


It’s Monday, the beginning of a new week, and you need words of motivation to start your week off right.

This week’s words of motivation: Walk and Talk; Don’t Discuss Business Sitting Down.

In this short 3 minute TED talk video we see business innovator Nilofer Merchant, give an eye-raising talk on how sitting (whether it be brainstorming or discussing the most innovative ideas with colleagues) is actually killing us. She does not only provide chilling statics behind the health consequences of sitting down (breast cancer and colon cancer 10%, type 2 diabetes 7%, & heart disease 6%], but provides persuasive reasons why we should conduct our next meeting on our feet; and not our tush.

When I saw this, I was truly shocked. Who would of thought that our tushes could be the closest thing to smoking when it comes to our health. It makes sense that the lack of physical activity does lead to health consequences but I never would thought that the most common practice of sharing ideas and listening to conversations is actually hurting our bodies, without us knowing it. Furthermore, we treat our obligations of taking care of business and our health as two separate entities–when we really they are one.

If we are going to solve problems and look at the world differently whether it be governance, job creation or environmental issues etc., [then] maybe we can think about how to reframe those problems as having both things be true [to not have opposition]

–Nilofer Merchant

So this week conduct your next meeting on your feet, and not your tush. Not only only does your body command it but your mind as well. Some of the greatest ideas came from the great outdoors.

ThrowBack Thursdays: A Pebble In A Pond


20130808-213757.jpg

“You drop a pebble in a pond, you get ripples. Soon the ripples cross the whole pond” –Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story.

This quote (or that movie scene) came to me when I stumbled across this page in my notepad. I wrote this five months ago, and I didn’t know that it would be my starting platform for this site. And, the ripples are only beginning 🙂
