Pray for Japan

March 15, 2011 at 07:11AM

My prayers goes out to Japan! I know that recent current events is affecting many of us one way or another. Relief efforts are being worked on as I type on the Hawaii end. Hawaii also had tsunami warning sirens go off like crazy last week and a lot is happening.

Life of a beatboxer does not stop though and as tough as it is I needed to follow through with my pre-engagements. On Saturday, March 12th at 8:00AM HST I was invited weeks in advance to guest judge the Worldwide Ventrilo Beatbox Battle on VentBBX.com. Congratulations to Slurp of Norway on winning that Ventrilo Beatbox Battle! Early in my career I've worked with Norway rapper TKB, but I have not heard from him in years. Then on Sunday I performed for Lola-Palooza for the newly turned 1-year-old Lola and fell u…

Know the fruit of your labor is your labor of love. If you know that, no one can take that from you. When you recognize that, know your worth is eternally internal, not external. When we sow bountifully, we will reap bountifully and bear much fruit that is far bigger than ourselves, what is in our posessions. No earthly riches can fulfill what Father God can. When someone cannot see we are highly favored and the harvest coming our way, know that for him or her though seeing, do not see. Keep on moving and recognize we have more than enough. We need not another person's approval for the fruit of our labor that bears much fruit. Be glad and rejoice for this is the Day that the Lord has made called Today. Know that Father God approves of us, our work ethic and dedication. It is you who Father God is well pleased.

Be bold! When a topic is controversial and you feel strongly about it, be unafraid to speak out in public even when in error. Most of us don't care about how politically correct a person can be over how authentic and real he or she is. It's how we learn from one another as long as we're appropriate to one another. Most of the time when we are in error we learn more. That does not mean to be intentionally in error like a troll would be, but it is good to give our best effort to speak out on tough and sensitive topics. No one cares if we are always right. Even a mathematically cannot always be right, but that mathematician will find a way to learn from his or her math errors. If you only spoke out when you are right, then you will not grow into tackling tougher topics. The moment you feel you need to stay silent on tough issues is the moment you've allowed yourself to be passive about an issue that does concern you. We have a voice for our generation. Be that voice. Use your voice. Be passionate and use your voice to advocate on the topics you want to be heard.
