One of the many reasons I absolutely love being an ambassador for ReebokONE is the passion for creating a community of moving like we were designed to move. Reebok started a campaign a while back called Be More Human. And it’s exactly what it sounds like. To break the supposed norm of looking, moving and being like everybody else. To break the sterotypes and just be real. Real human. Today, can we just do that? Can we just be more of who God actually created us to be.
The song Shoulders by For King and Country is one of my favorite songs right now, simply because it says “my help comes from you, you are my rest and refuge. I don’t have to see to believe it, I know it’s true.”
The best part about us being more human is the ability and freedom to simply ask God for the help we need, and He never reprimands us for it. In fact, He encourages it.
James 1:2-4 (The Voice) Don’t run from tests and hardships, brothers and sisters. As difficult as they are, you will ultimately find joy in them; if you embrace them, your faith will blossom under pressureand teach you true patience as you endure. And true patience brought on by endurance will equip you to complete the long journey and cross the finish line—mature, complete, and wanting nothing. 5 If you don’t have all the wisdom needed for this journey, then all you have to do is ask God for it; and God will grant all that you need. He gives lavishly and never scolds you for asking.
Today, let’s just try to be more human.
Do it anyway
People are often unreasonable, illogical and self centered;
Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives;
Be kind anyway.
If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies;
If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you;
Be honest and frank anyway.
What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight;
If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous;
Be happy anyway.
The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow;
Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough;
Give the world the best you’ve got anyway.
You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and your God;
It was never between you and them anyway.
(*it’s been said this originally is from Mother Theresa but that is still in question as the original wording. I give honor to whomever God blessed with these words)
May I share my music passion with you?
Today, I just need a little bit of coffee (actually a lot a bit) and a WHOLE lotta Jesus.
If you’re with me. Here’s a soundtrack for inspiration to get you through.
