The starts with an “F”… and it ends with an “ollow throug”

First off: I purposely left out the “h” Secondly: Friends, whether it be in class assignments, friendships, appointments, business transactions, bill payments, and probably everything else, Follow Through is critical. It’s one thing to start, one thing to begin, one thing to initiate something. It is another to follow through with whatever that thing may be. Bing.com’s dictionary has defined the phrase as follows: “finish doing something: to take further action as a consequence or extension of a previous action, especially to continue something through to completion” In other words, do and finish what you are supposed to do. Even if,[…]

Motivated and Rejuvenated to Finish the Final 4 Weeks

Spring Break Work & Witness Mission Trip to the Dominican Republic.   A Work and Witness Mission Trip is a no brainer great way to spend time, money, and resources. No regrets have I heard any person say they have after going and serving on one. MNU offers several every single year. And if you don’t think you’d like to do one of those, you can go with churches all around this area, Living Hope Church of the Nazarene in particular is going back to the DR next June!!   And Now, School life, assignments, pages to be read, and[…]

What a Romantic Relationship Taught Me About Following Jesus.

So I confess that over the past 3 weeks I had only read the Bible on my own 3 or 4 of those days. That’s not the wisest decision since the spirit or soul needs nourishment just as the physical body needs it. While spiritual nourishment can come from a variety of ways. God is not limited to only revealing Himself through the Bible. For He definitely speaks through people and He also can communicate to us through prayer. YET, there is something unique about Scripture. When we read it appropriately we are letting God do the talking. I was once told by my youth pastor[…]

2 Things: Pleasure and Play. Both are from the Lord.

Whether it would be watching TV, playing a sport, drawing (for me its more like doodling), getting on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest (I don’t do Pinterest, but I know peeps that do…. dancing, working-out, playing video games-LITERALLY WHATEVER “floats your boat”, there is a time and a place where Pleasure and Play is necessary. Yes I said necessary. God did create the Sabbath as a time of rest. That’s back in Genesis 2:2-3. Jesus Christ even said that the Sabbath was made for man (Mark 2:27). Observing and resting on the Sabbath (originally our Saturday) was done in order that human[…]

3 Things That Affect Us All: Death, Taxes, and the Weather.

Regarding Death… here’s a picture taken from inside of a tomb   As for Taxes, I have enjoyed the services of Jackson Hewitt. They have helped me the past 3 years in a row. Via Wal-Mart: And finally, the Weather in Kansas:   Enjoy the weekend Friends! Peace in the Middle East, Drink Water, Know that you are loved; so love others and yourself in return. :

I MAY OR MAY NOT BE A SAVER OF LIVES… YOU CAN TOO!!!

Friends, because of MNU I may or may not be a saver of lives. So you may be thinking, “Mario, you are one arrogant person. What in the sweet Fritos are you talking about?” Well friends, MNU has consistently hosted American Red Cross Blood Drives. Last year, I donated blood for the first time first semester. The second time was Spring semester and then this past week, was my third time. Each time it’s been a pleasant and worthwhile experience. This is despite the fact that I am like most people and not Needles’ number 1 fan: But truly friends donating blood can[…]

Snow, Soccer, Land, and Late Nights- Fuh Dayz.

With the rather cold, below freezing, below 0 feeling, icy, snowy weather, Soccer-in Land Gym, and Late night/early mornings have been much more common place this past week.   But…           Moving on, with the beloved Snow Days that MNU had two of, two things were especially on the rise in the spending of my time. 1 Soccer: Only, with our socces it’s these incredible people that play in our beloved Land Memorial Gymnasium (Or just Land Gym).   These people all came out Monday night. The night we found out a Snow Day was to be our tomorrow![…]

Wisdom On Time: Take It One Day At A Time

“We were created with the capacity to live life one day at a time. So make it to where your work load will only be that of one day.” I confess that lately I have been rather stressed and disheveled with my schedule, roles, and responsibilities. But if the afore mentioned quote is truth, then I believe that with effort, diligence, and discipline-balance and peace of mind are possible. So, paying attention to my schedules from school, church, and work I’m working to do this. I have learned friends that in: staying up late (and not being able to sleep[…]

11 thoughts

So yeah, just 11 thoughts that I wanted to share. Here they are written out: 11. It’s always a frightening moment when you’re not sure if all that came out was just gas. 10. There is no “morning after” or regret when a person follows Christ. (Without going into any details, there have frankly been times in my life when I woke up in the morning wishing I had made different decisions the previous day.) 9. Faith, particularly faithfulness to Him, is risky. 8. Vulnerability too is risky; but I have found that the reward far outweighs the cost. 7.[…]
