Tattoo time!!

So, many people have some pretty strong opinions on tattoos and why you should or shouldn’t have them visible at work. Well, I will let you figure out where I stand in regards to that…I mean you are talking about a guy who will wear a three piece suit around his house…just because. I seriously doubt I would be rejected for a job, because of tattoos on my wrists, of course maybe that’s why I own my own business now instead of working for corporate America.Who knows.

Let’s get to the point shall we. If you have been following me you have seen my itinerary for this summer and the next year, over 23 cities, 17 Countries, 4 Continents, and all while living out of 1 backpack.

With a collaboration of many reasons of why I am doing this, it really comes down to this. I want to see the World, I want to see all of Gods creations, I want to be the change that we long to see, I want to be the light of the world that I am called to be.

Micah 6:8
8 He has told you, human one,  what is good and  what the LORD requires from you:  to do justice, embrace faithful love, and walk humbly with your God.

I think the message put’s it perfectly by saying,

8But he’s already made it plain how to live, what to do,
what God is looking for in men and women.
It’s quite simple: Do what is fair and just to your neighbor,
be compassionate and loyal in your love,
And don’t take yourself too seriously—
take God seriously.

If that doesn’t make sense, I honestly do not know what does. God is showing us EXACTLY how to live. I will be traveling the world, meeting people of all different backgrounds, it is my job to be humble about the experience. Knowing that there will be things that I see and encounter that many will never be a part of, or choose not to be a part of.  There will be parts of my trip where I will be around people who don’t have the ability to go to the gas station to buy water, I will be around families who are broken because they have no place to live, I will be around children who have been sold by their own parents into slavery…

I want to show the world and everyone I come into contact with the EVERLASTING love that God has for them, but doing it in a humbling manner and understanding that someone will always have it better or they will have worse than me unfortunately.

So here is my newest tattoo,

No matter where I go in the world, I am called to do what is fair and just, to be compassionate and loyal in my love and to walk humbly with my God.
