eyeInspire: Get Your Ax Back!

There comes a time in everyone's life where one moment you may be on top, and the next you're at rock bottom. Some like to refer to this as "Falling off", but in this case I'd like to call it "Losing your ax". How exactly does this happen? Simple, life happens. If you read 2 Kings 6:1-7 you'll read about Elisha and one of the students dropping their ax in the water. You can click the link to read the scripture in it's entirety, but for now let's look at this symbolically...
But as one of them was cutting a tree, his ax head fell into the river. “Oh, sir!” he cried. “It was a borrowed ax!” “Where did it fall?” the man of God asked. When he showed him the place, Elisha cut a stick and threw it into the water at that spot. Then the ax head floated to the surface. “Grab it,” Elisha said. And the man reached out and grabbed it. - 2 Kings 6:5-7
Often times we drop something and leave it where it is. We feel like it's too heavy for us to pick back up, but the beauty of it is that we don't have to do it alone. How do you get your ax back? Let's go back to the scripture...
The ax was borrowed, that means it shared. How often do we share our problems, victories, thoughts and cares with God? Don't ever feel like you can't share things with Him. Talk to Him and he will do all he can to help you. But where did it fall? Review your past and find the place in your life where life seemed to go haywire. Ask God to show you where you lost it. Last but not least, make yourself available to be recovered. Reach out and grab what's yours, but first seek counsel. Just as the man went to Elisha for help, we need to seek DIVINE counsel. 

Today, eyeInspire you to get your zeal back, sharpen your sword, get your ax back! Never give up on the promises in which God has already destined for you. Know that he is God and will always make a way. No weapon formed against you shall prosper. God hasn't placed that ax in your life to kill you, but for you to use to chopped down those trees and boundaries people try to place in your lives. Your ax may be the power of healing, counsel, your talent or your courage. Whatever it is, you must trust that "...all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose." - Romans 8:28. Your ax won't return to you until you can fully trust God on your own strength. Get your joy back, get your life back, get your ax back!

P.S. Remember, in the natural, an ax can't float, but in the spirit...

eyeWatch: Haymaker

If you could name any unsigned artist that knows how to deliver, Denzil Porter should be mentioned. And with his latest video for the single, "Haymaker", there's no doubt that he's a heavyweight contender in the music industry.
Haymaker, literally meaning a powerful punch thrown to knock out an opponent, is a song Denzil and Connie used to show off their metaphorical skills when making punch line records. By throwing punch lines back to back while creating an undeniable flow of word play at the same time, "Haymaker" shows off the lyrical side of both artists.

"Once Connie and I heard the beat," Denzil says, "We started writing. It was automatic, we knew what we had to do, create a song, bar for bar like a boxing match". "Haymaker" has a very unique format. It is designed for listeners who enjoy complex word play and can handle a few hooks and jabs.
If you've never been a fan or heard of Denzil, this single will be the reason you become one. The video was directed By Denzil Porter & Jaison Williams; who directed many of Denzil's videos. Be sure to watch, comment and share Happy watching!

How do you think parents feel when they walk into their homes and see that something is broken? Of course they're not happy, but the question the children anticipate and have their stories ready for is "Who did it?" And while all arguments seem bogus, the weariness of their day leaves them in aporia. Aporia? Yes, that's the word! Happy defining...


What does it mean? Difficulty determining the truth of an idea due to equally valid arguments for and against it.

How can you use it? Try this: The professor had a hard time concluding who won the debate. The points made by both the affirmative and negative left her in aporia

USE IT! Be smart, sound smart, word up!

eyeHeart Fitness: ZUMBA!

What can I say about the Latin-inspired international sensation of a fitness program that has swept the nation? One word: effective!

Since its inception in 2001, Zumba Fitness has been the platform of physical transformation for millions of people worldwide, which makes it the most successful dance-fitness program ever!

When founder Alberto “Beto” Perez forgot his aerobics music for his fitness class, he improvised with the music he had, creating a whole new way to lose weight and remain toned. He then brought it to Miami where he partnered with Alberto Periman and Alberto Aghion to form a trademark unlike any other.

The Zumba Fitness brand not only includes classes, but also apparel, DVDs, music CDs, an academy to license others in instruction, and also video games.

When I visited the woman at Kingdom Christian Cultural Center in Yonkers, NY, they knew exactly how to get down with the Latin flavor. Take a look here at how the P.H.A.T. Ministry hosted an inspirational Zumba series to get the females in shape just in time for Spring. You might even see me and ♥ t i f f a n y working it out.

NEW MUSIC: Padded Sky

One of the livest bands I know is gearing up to release their next project,

STFU & Listen

With the OXYS, you can also expect the unexpected. But before that releases, the OXYMORRONS are ironically dropping their single, "Padded Sky", on a sound cloud near you. The track is fully reminiscent of their past work projects; however, you can hear the musical growth.  The Hip-Rock, Alternative, R&B, and full-on eclecticism of their records is what makes the Oxys who they are. We look forward to hearing the new project...but for now - Happy listening!
