#faith - With the sad news of both Kate Spade, Anthony Bourdain, and the almost 45,000 other people who take their lives each year, I was reminded of a particular hospital visit I made to a teenager who had recently attempted to commit suicide. After sitting with him and listening to him talk about how pointless his life felt and how depressed he was about that fact, I gave him a hug and told him that I was sorry he felt so alone and so dark. I told him that the Bible (and life) were full of people who were often depressed, afraid and felt the same exact way he did. I told him that one reason this life often seems so unfulfilling is b/c we were created with an almost insatiable longing for something more - for things that are eternal, things that satisfy completely, things that are transcendent - not things that fade, things that can be lost, and things that can die. I told him that I believed in a God who had similar feelings to his the night before He was to be crucified. I told him that this God, whose name was Jesus, stated that his mission was to give mankind an “abundant life” - a life full of hope and purpose rooted in the fact that they were loved by Him - a God willing to give up everything (including His own life) in order to conquer death and despair once and for all. I told him that while knowing, believing and accepting this truth would not mean that pain would never be present, it would mean there would a purpose, a plan, and a people that would all help to anchor him through it. I told him that Jesus loved him and died in his place already, so that there was no need to try to do that to himself again.
Jesus said, “The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me,because the Lord has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor.He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners”.

#fitness - I got a little carried away at #kestepizza (it was totally worth it :)) last night so made morning carb atonement the best way I know how - pairing a muscle building exercise (#pull ups) with an #exert exercise (burpees) for an #AMRAM (as many rounds as possible) over 30 minutes.

7 rounds
Pull ups (diff variations) - 10-12 reps (70-75 total)
Burpees - 20 reps (140 total)

All is well in the universe again 😀💪🏽

Caption this :)

#fitness - keeping constant tension on the arm not pushing the weight is a great way to add more intensity to typical dumbell presses and to add more muscle to your deltoids :) - check out the full shoulder workout 👉🏽 @smithfitnyc !
