Welcome to Freedom 4:13!! This is the first official blog on this site. This isn't going to be some cookie-cutter blog. Here, I will share with you bits and pieces of myself and make this a personal page, inviting you, my viewers, into my world. It's been a while since I've blogged, so here's to putting my writing skills to use.
For those who are new to the site and have never seen me in person (or online, for that matter), my name is Marcus, and I am a marathoner... not by trade, of course. I work in a fulfillment center for a living (for now), and I am just taking another leap of faith by starting another business. As for direction as to where I want this business of mine to go, I want to go universal. Merchandising, coaching, writing, blogging... I want to do as much as I possibly can.
Why should I do all of these things? In fact, why should I do any of it?
I want to use this to help change the world. I want to give people hope. I want to inspire those who have no direction, and inspire those who may have very little hope.
I thank my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for giving me the opportunity to do this. I am so thrilled to be a part of a growing community of people who are doing what they enjoy doing. For me, it's running, writing, and entrepreneurship.
Here's a bit more information about myself that I believe everyone reading should know:
I am a believer in Christ, first and foremost.
I am a Conservative, and if this offends anyone, this is not the site for you.
I am a runner. I run marathons for fun. You'll see more blogs about this in the future, but this isn't limited to running. I will be posting about other things, like my testimony, and maybe give you a little preaching (ha!... although I'm not really a preacher).
From here on out, I will be blogging from time to time, keep you updated on what's happening here at Freedom 4:13.
Some of you will ask where I got the name "Freedom 4:13" from. Here's my answer.
Philippians 4:13 is my favorite verse in the bible. For whatever reason, it just sticks with me. I even wear a wristband with this verse, and yes, I have some merchandise with this verse, so you'd better buy it! The "Freedom" is what I live for. Jesus Christ died for my freedom. He died for my sins, and to free my soul, before rising on the third day. He did this for you, too! Also, the soldiers who died in battle died for our freedom, and for our country. As an American man, and a patriot, I do not take this for granted. I will do whatever I can to show support for the troops who are currently on active duty, and the ones who have made the ultimate sacrifice to protect our freedom.
This is why I chose the name Freedom 4:13, and this is one of the reasons why I became a conservative a few years back.
Here's another thing you should know about me. I do not believe in masks, so I do not sell or promote masks. I also do not believe in vaccines. If this offends you, again, this is not the site for you.
I thank you for taking the time to read my blog, and I hope you have enjoyed it. If so, please share this along with family and friends who may be interested, and please feel free to look around my page. Also, feel free to let me know what I can do to make improvements on my page. As I always say, there's always room for improvement, and I'm always looking for ways to make things better.
Until next time,
The Freedom Runner
