'Life is a struggle, and to those of us that are elder know its just one struggle to the next'
These where eye opening words spoken at my nieces funeral. Filled with grief and humbled in a form of surrender. My understanding of life took in a new meaning or should I say acknowledged a truth. Here at Olympian LLC we acknowledge boldly one truth that Jesus Is the Christ and is the Truth the way and the life. John 14:6
Redemption was bought at a price of blood. Freely given to all those willing to believe and accept the gift of salvation. Ephesians 2:8
But thats not where the story and your story ends. Matthew 28:6
The Christ rose from the dead! And is daily rising many from death. Amen. But as one risen from death many years prior and going along these hills and valleys. I stumbled across the truth of John 16:33 ('One struggle to the next')
My family and I found many more truths in this tragedy. Their was separation, distance, grace, comfort a mix of good and bad. My eyes where open to not just my troubles but of my families and realizing that we where far from a perfect family, and that we were not alone. Not that we didn’t have support from others which we did. But of the fact that many or should I say all humans are in some way in a certain type of season in their life.
I took a step back filled with emotions I asked Jesus to not let our faith waiver after such an event. Is it possible to continue forward with enthusiasm with heart? With zeal, after God did not heal or save this little one. Then I took another step back, and acknowledged the bitter sweet answer that was yes… Their I learned the truth of surrender.
'In this world you will have trouble” big or small! Challenges, tragedy, turmoil etc. in itself 'you will have trouble' is a promise. But their is a greater promise. 'But take heart! I have overcome the world' Prophetic words spoken, a declaration of what was already done before it was even done. This is a promise that we here at Olympian hold steadfast to. And declare to others freely.
That you yourself in triumph and or tragedy their is one who has overcome the world. And he freely makes you More than conquerors. Romans 8:31-39
From goals, dreams, marriages, health, business, to tragedy, strive, patience, setbacks, failures. We can rest easy that we have one that has overcome this world. And through which ever season you find yourself he has the best in mind for you and you can rise up and continue forward with a steadfast zealous and courageous heart. Hang on to him for only through the Christ will you be made more than a Conqueror.
Olympian was brought forth with such principles. Olympian derived from or relating to the Olympic Games. As an athlete we have our personal goals of athleticism. Body, records, health, etc. as humans we seek glory, fame, honor one can argue these as lofty. Tho we believe God takes us to such hills and heights through this journey we call life, we also believe that God will take us through seasons of not just prosperity but of humbleness, meekness. Times of waiting times that truly purify us not from the outside but from with in.
I deeply hope you join us in our walk as people, as a company, as followers of the good Shepard! We hope you can find such encouragement and faith we have been given. Hope you guys enjoy the styles derived from our athletes… And in which ever IV Seasons that we have categorized you find yourself you can find yourself with hope and joy!
Cheers - The Olympian Team.
By the time the reader is reading this article it will be out of date as because this article and the previous where posted prior launch of website
If any one is to stumble upon these "blogs" and enjoys their content, the writer appreciates the time.
As you can see by the dates on each post it has been more than a year since the last post. This is due to the progression of events. Either due to procrastination, detours, side projects, work etc. But alas we are here. And progress has been made. All glory to God as I am thankful for the journey as it has been beneficial.
Let's just quickly break this down. The business itself has been a manifistation of several years of previous venture failures. Dating back several years around 2007. Now I do not wish to speak about dull details of another "start up" story. Personally the phrase start up has become a bore to hear as it seems to be like in simple terms played out. Words like entrepreneurship. I honestly dont know why they bug me. But none the less they do.
Sometimes what bugs us the most is what is most relevant. Maybe one of the reasons it bugs me the most is because it reminds me of images I have projected or where projected to me. Like on social media with the motivational quotes and the motivational speakers, videos etc. 'wake up at 6am every morning and go for your runs'. Not that none of that wasn't good but it quickly became a 'squidville' senerio.
In the Spongebob episode Squidward follows his preferred lifestyle and the ephoria only lasts several days. In which paralled this idea I had manifistated in which this entrepreneurship lifestyle would bring me sucess and happiness. Obviously the word itself is just a word and the projections are the ones I came to resent.
Now with that being said, I am thankful to God for the journey in which has unfolded tho I had anticipated on Launching weeks after the first Blog, weeks became months and months became a year. We will see what is to come after this post.
I can say with confidence that this last year has been an exponetional year of growth, maturity, and of understanding. In which i'd like to again give God glory for guiding my feet.
Tho a year has passed progress has been made and maybe only through this amount of waiting/working have we come to where we are now.
Website; Code bugs, UI & UX enhancments, Website Navigation fixes.
Business; Business Model, future road map.
Blogs; second post written and posted
Roughly it's been about a month since the last blog post. This Blog section was intended to be a ' dailypost, but daily has become yearly and monthly and maybe in the future weekly then to its intended desire.
Always Glory to God for his mercies are new each day! More progress has been made. New Olympian looks to be launching in just a few hours from the time written on this post - 10:03 am pcf time.
Trust the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own undersanding Proverbs 3:5. What a truth and blessing, a blessing because with such wisdom comes freedom for the Lord is there.
I used to think I knew it all. I used to be one of the first to jump into a discussion just show how wise I was. A blessing it is to remain quite and to understand. Our words are powerful and in life they create. and thats not an option.
GOD is good! So initially when I wrote the previous post I was planning to launch the afternoon of. But that was not the case and today could be argued to be a more prepared launch.
A few more UI bugs have been cleared.

Road Map -
Project : inflatration ;)
Exciting to see the fruition of years of work. As stated in previous posts we are all traveling and partaking in a season. These seasons can be argued to be universal in nature and universal to each individual. Seasons do not last forever.
We will see the goodness of the Lord in which ever season we may be.
