Peter is my hero

So I should probably be doing some kinda review about this year like most people are doing, but I don't have time till later. So stay tuned till sometime Saturday for a blog like that… maybe.

What I wanted to cover right now is tattoo's. haha ya some people love them and some hate them. There are times I get to talking about them with people and we ask each other what tat we would get if we did. I just said I never had anything mean enough to me to put it on me. Now I am still that way, but I finally have an answer to the question, even though I will never get it.

The thing that means the most to me right now is being the best man I can be and having a killer walk with God. Most of the time I am able to do this, but we all have our days. As I have talked about earlier and to many people, I believe a man should be a rock, very unmovable in a Godly manor, but still able to listen to others when a concern is brought up about them.

Anyways, if I were to get a tat it would be the name Peter and the design/lettering would be in stone or marble. When I see it, I would be reminded of my daily goal that I have for the rest of my life. Marking my body with what I want my life to be marked with, would mean a lot to me and keep me on the right track if I am not following it at the time.

Gym Trainers

So I saw my gym trainer while at the gym. He was busy, but had to take the time and tell me that some of the other trainers have been giving him props on how big and fast I am growing with the workout plan. It is so cool to know that the other trainers that I have rarely, if ever talked to, have seen the changes I have been working on from across the gym.

Moshing in Suffering (or something like that)

Been thinking about writing something like this since sooo many of my friends have been going through tough stuff. I read these verses in one of my "blended Bible" reading plans. Lunch break makes for a good time to type anyways.  C&C welcome.

We also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. Romans 5:3-4
A few months ago my life took a dramatic change. I was devastated about it and it felt like my own life was over. The Lord started to work some crazy good things in my life, teaching me to persevere in my loneliness, molding my character, and most of all developing me into the man I need to be. My hope in Christ became more important to me. God showed me that He wants me to focus on Him instead of becoming entangled in fears and worries and other challenges we go through.

The hardest part was that God wanted me to enjoy every part of this and to be happy for what I was going through since it brought a great amount of growing for me. It felt more like growing pains, but I started to enjoy life again. Even in these hard times, God showed me his love as He brought me closer to Him. Now my main goal is to have this day be better then the last day. Obviously some days are suckage, but that makes me stronger all the more. mahahaha

We should be thanking God for the joys and the challenges that we go through in life. Even if we make bad choices through it, it is all a learning process and a testing of our faith in God and if we focus on that after anything we do, the growing will commence. Persevering through it is the best, because knowing that He will make us better is hecka sweet. He will give more perseverance, more Christlike character, and better hope in Him.

Body Building… or a ninja!

So yesterday…. ok two days ago, since its so late or early, my trainer and I did some tests. We figured out my body fat is between 6.5 and 7 % which is excellent/essential for an athlete. I like this because my goal isn't to be some huge marshmallow guy, but to be strong, toned, and ready to do anything that I come across, not just shear mass. Sure one can get big and lift a lot of weight, but how much good are you if all you can do is life a lot of weight?

To keep me on the right track of where I want to go I keep thinking that if I were to be a ninja.. could I do that or would I be to clumsy trying to run around? To keep this in effect I stretch before and after a workout and pay very close attention to how my posture is. If I can't keep a good posture I drop the weight, or better yet just don't go higher till I can do it right with the current weight.

It can also be the way you work out. Doing a full body workout every other day may make you tired and put some muscle on you, but the best way is too work two sets of muscles 3 or 4 different ways. This brings on total exhaustion and all the parts of one muscle is worked on. A bicep can easily be worked out three different ways. There is a top, middle, and lower part of the bicep and it can be hit with normal curls, reverse curls, and hammer curls. That is the simplest way to break down a bicep all around and make it grow back even bigger every time rather then with just normal curls. If you wanted to go even deeper then that, there is the outer and inner part of your bicep, that is where you can get extreme growth when you work the three parts and the inner and outer. haha

So now the main thing is for me to finish up the plan and goal I have of being around 160 pounds and then maintain that. This hasn't been that hard to do either, I end up only spending 40 to 50 minutes working out. This is rather short compared to what some people might spend at a gym. Once you hit two of your muscle groups such as back and triceps four times you are worn out and ready to let your body repair. I started at 112 pounds about a month and a half ago and now I am at 128. I am thinking that it will be another 2 or 3 months of work to get to my goal, but it will be so worth it! I will have my body ready just in time for summer. ;)

Showing a true image in your life

Now get up and stand on your feet. I have appeared to you to appoint you as a servent and as a witness of what you have seen and will see of me. Acts 26:16

As a Christian witnesses, I can give a front seat showing of the work God has done in my life. But sometimes I wonder and am asked what are the opportunities? They happen whenever we help someone walk through life's difficulties, be it things that we may seem are simple, to complicated situations we have never been through.This doesn't mean we say I can't help you though it. Ask God to give you direction and to say what they need to hear, God will give you direction. Giving friends direction in a Godly manor can help plant a seed.

Just talking to people about how God transforms our lives every day is another way to reach out to others that won't listen to a sermon. And to set things straight, every Christian's testimony is important, be it "I've known God almost my whole life" or "my walk with Him just started two minutes ago". But we need to remember that a large part of our witness comes through how we live our lives in front of random people at work, school, or friends.

We need to trust in God to help us go to others and offer the hope of the gospel. We need to seek Him and ask Him to work in our hearts and in others hearts so we can show people that Christ is Lord.

What are you doing right now that shows God is the Lord of your life. How about the past week, have you been seeking Him and showing others your love for God?

Hair Style of Choice

So most people voted and some people straight up texted me and gave their opinion. haha I have totaled it up and it seems more people want me to sport the 2nd style as it is more urban/classy. I did like the third one, but… I don't know, just not sure about it. I shall go with urban since it is in my user name. XD I am going to play around with the look at little, but it will keep the same idea base.

Thanks for the input every one!

Three Hair styles.

Ok so I have three hair styles that I like, but I can't decide exactly which one I like better then the other. Here are three to look at so you can see which one you like better. I have opened up anonymous replies so you can post your thoughts without me knowing who you are (incase your scared of your opinion :p ). The poll for this is to the right in the side bar. Please vote and maybe even leave a comment so I know why you like which one it better. Thanks.
Ok so my poll doesn't work. :( please just post a quick comment for me. Thanks

Oldest style, mostly just long and messy/free style stuff.

This I got soon after college.

This is another one I like too.

New music

I have really been into Japanese and Irish music the past few weeks. I need to start expanding from here. I love to listen to music and bands, even if I can't understand what they are saying. It lets me concentrate on the instruments and how the placement of the word are in the songs. I like to listen to this first before I learn the lyrics, otherwise I may not like the song because of the layout of the two. Does anyone have any suggestions to what I should look for? Maybe Germany or Italy. Oh! How about Josh Groban? I think I shall start there. haha

New CD

I picked up a new cd that I really like, Celtic Sanctuary is the title. I was again looking for something new to listen to for relaxing to fall asleep to or at work. One of the songs I am familiar with is The mummers dance. I have not heard the version with lyrics so this was a pleasant surprise when I got to it. May it be was also one that I have heard before from a mix cd that I was given. the rest of the cd I didn't know, but the two songs were worth the price. Here is a youtube to the Mummers.

Ending of spam

Ok well at least the spam from the last blog. I shall still spam this one with content of my life. HAHAHA lol yes. Today is good and will be great. so many great things happening today I might skip. Ok well maybe not, but it should be a lot of fun. The next 15 hours will be awesome. :D

Thanks epic random girl

So I went to the mall to get a few things, repair my watch and swap a shirt out. Well I was looking at cloths in A&F for a while to kill time due to the watch repair taking a while. Lucky by Jason Marz came on and I instinctively started singing out loud and really getting into it like I do with most of his songs. Then this random girl started singing the girl side of the song. We had our own little duet right there in the store. I felt like I was in one of those musical movies. Haha

Unequal Partners

Do not become partners with those who do not believe, for what partnership is there between righteousness and lawlessness, or what fellowship does light have with darkness? 2 Corinthians 6:14
This has been very heavy on my mind the past week or more and I am not fully sure why. I posted a verse on FaceBook about this but I think it needs more attention. I feel like God is leading me to tell someone about it or that one of my friends need to hear it. Now I woke up from sleeping and really knew I had to do something so I am blogging about it and posting it on all my social sites for that person or maybe even many people to hear it. If you have read this far please do stop cause for all I know you might be the one needing to read this.
I find this a very serious thing because it could… No, it will ruin what God has planned for you. Some people believe they can start a relationship and build up the unbeliever to believe in God and everything will turn out fine. This is wrong, even if you think your situation will be an exception. You can read it all through the Bible (particularly in the old testament) about how it wasn’t in Gods will for a Christian to fall in love with one who doesn’t believe in Christ as their personal Savor and ended in the Christian falling away from God’s will. Are you going to let Satan put the thoughts in your head that “they are the one” or “it will work out in the long run”? Well of course it will work out in the long run, yes, it will work just fine for Satan in the long run, just like he said/put the thoughts into your brain.
Let’s fast forward to marriage and kids. Do you really want to put your children through deciding between their parents and what they believe? They have enough things to focus on and that’s not something any child should have to be divided in. Both parents should be leading their kids with a one minded decision. It is so selfish to marry that guy or girl that “is the one” (but still doesn’t believe the same way as you and not focused on God) then put your kids through that because you felt good about him or her.
I know this sounds cheesy but stop……


If you sat down with Jesus and told him about this great guy or girl you plan to spend the rest of your life with would you feel at ease doing that?

Think more…

What if Jesus asked you how you two are currently serving him and telling people about Christ’s love? And how you two plan to do that even better after marriage?
“love” isn’t worth the lost of the the best relationship that you can ever had with Christ.


I want to be like him. He was a rock and I want to be a rock. Someone who stands firm through out whatever happens.

This past month I have thought about this verse in Matthew and started to make it my life. I want to be someone that isn’t effected by what happens, even if it should destroy others.

Little things through out a day can upset anyone to an extent but it’s how far you let it go that tells you who you are. I am letting every little effect me now. I’m not shutting off the world, just knowing I can set the limit to what I can handle. Well now I have no limit, God will help me through anything that ever crosses my path so I have no fears or worries anymore.

I did used to worry a lot and just about every little thing too. Now I see is as a way to grow more in life and mature to the man I have dreamt of being. And I see that change happening, hopefully others have or will see this too.

I’m ready to take on whatever comes next, today and tomorrow. Because of this life change and thoughts, every day has been the best day of my life and that means my life will just keep getting better every day. It makes me excited to get in bed and wonder what God and the world has in store for me and how I get to handle the next adventure of my day and life.

Bring it on!

Other blog

I had been using another blog up until I started using this one. I plan to copy over some of the posts, because I still feel people should read them and I don't want to loose track of some of what I wrote in the past. So don't mind the spam of blog posts that is about to happen. haha

Getting back to hobbies

I have been taking care of things and getting goals done that I have set and wanted to do for a long time, but there is nothing like sitting down to draw again like old times. I have done a lot of digital art work on my iPad, but to sit at a desk with paper and a pencil is all too relaxing to ignore.

The hardest part of drawing on paper is that i need a flat surface at a desk or one of those lap drawing boards. Still this can be even harder when my drawings are bigger then 11x9's. Because I don't have a lot of room to draw I have been working on my smaller drawings I have started and never finished. Here is a pic of one from my phone camera.

Its still a WIP, though I think I might be near to finishing it. I need to take a break from it so I have fresh eyes on it again, before I make a final decision if I want to call it done.

This rose has been very fun to work on. It is a big challenge for the reason that it need to look white and still have shading all around on it; otherwise it will look blown out on exposure. I must be picky on it. >.> haha If I were to ever draw another rose it would need to be any color, but white. …. .. .. wait.. it might have been red when it was turned to B&W. Ok well a darker color anyways.

Who are we to do this?

They refused to listen and failed to remember the miracles you performed among them. They became stiff-necked and in their rebellion appointed a leader in order to return to their slavery -Nehemiah 9:17.

I was sitting at the mall watching people as I was working on a list with my iPad. I took a small break and paid attention to a small family getting some treats at a stand. Their kid was so over joyed to munch down on a cookie at a table, life was great. Well soon he finished that up he started getting ansi and whinny. The parents were talking and finally got up to take the child some where else. 

On a spiritual note: This reminded me of Nehemiah and how young and old we still keeps these traits. It would be hard to sit next to God and watch how ungrateful we are. He'll answer prayers, and protect family's from dangers we aren't even aware of. But, before we know it, you find yourself questioning why He has allowed something difficult into my life. When will He deliver me from this uncomfortable situation? (or we ran out of our chocolate chip cookie) At that point, haven't we become a bit "stiff-necked" too in a small rebellion?

I thank God for putting up with my spoiled, selfish behaviors and for small things and miracles that we aren't even aware of. I know I can go to him for forgiveness, finding new hope and healing.

What have you become "stiff-necked" in? I encourage you to pray to God and ask Him to show you what you need to work on. He is an Awesome chiropractor and will fix your stiff neck if you ask Him too.


Testing out new blogs

So I have been using tumblr and like the app that is on the iPhone for posting. The problem I have with it is that I can't reply to people who have replied to my post. Because of this it looks like all I do is post and ignore everyone after that. Tumblr has not replied to my tickets I have sent in so now to try out blogger and wordpress. I am hoping I can find all the features I want in one of these choices.
