Pursuing God

He who love God, pursues righteousness [Proverbs 15:9]

I’ve been thinking over the last few weeks or so about this whole concept. I am so dedicated to training and my goals for fitness that it’s an all consuming passion of mine. How would my life be different if I directed that energy also to my relationship to God. do I pursue righteousness? Do I pursue God with that same intensity.

For example, I woke up this morning at 5am just so I could hit the gym before having to go to work a few hours later. I miss the days where that same all consuming focus was directed to God. 

I’m not insinuating that a dedication to a trade of activity (in my case weightlifting) is a negative thing. I’m simply thinking this. 

If I can dedicate that amount of energy to something temporal, can’t I do at least the same for God?

There’s a dollar in my g string

THAT IS YOUR D STRING. G IS ALL THE WAY ON MY LEFT.

EXCUSE ME you uncultured swine. That IS my G string. LEFT TO RIGHT IT’S: C G D A ON A CELLO. And if you notice the dollar is wonderfully tucked in my G STRING.DO NOT DOUBT MY SIX YEARS OF EXPERIENCE.

FUCKING VIOLINISTS

THEY’RE NOT CALLED VIOLINISTS THEY’RE CALLED CELLISTS

IT,WAS THE VIOLINIST THAT THOUGHT IT WAS THE WRONG STRING JESUS CHRIST

This is just one massive train wreck

String players can be a bit high-strung.

We all need to calm down before this gets violin-t


This is genius

Abolish USA Weightlifting's addendum to the IWF Technical Rules that makes 'spiking a barbell' illegal in weightlifting.

thatmountaincrossfit:

As the competitors and fans of weightlifting, we want to recapture the right to express ourselves in the sport with pure, true emotion. This includes celebrating victories and accomplishments by slamming, spiking and/or lowering the barbell with momentum after a successful lift in competition. Neither the International Weightlifting Federation (IWF) nor the International Olympic Committee have any such rule addressing the topic. They embrace the growth and passion of the sport. However, USA Weightlifting (USAW) has currently added an addendum to the IWF Technical Rules banning bar spiking or any added momentum to the barbell during competition. We want this addendum abolished, so that we may compete without fear of being ejected by an addendum that only exists in USA. Let us celebrate!

Not for nothing but I was the one who suggested to Jon to use the Whitehouse.gov petition site.

Yes!
