Master the Mundane

THE SCENE: 35 and perfect

Woodshack led the charge on the warm up. All I know is I was warm for the meat of the workout. If interested ask Woodshack but as you could imagine it was stuff you would do if he would have played at Lockhaven State!!

We did the same thing the whole time. 4 corners with diamond merkins, Bobby Hurley’s, C Dry Docks, BB Situps. Also ran up a hill and did lunges in between.

Woodshack took over here as well. Did cool ab stuff to work our gut. Iron cross flutter things that were fun!!
35 brave men!!
Master the mundane. Doing the same thing all day can be boring but God has called us their for a reason and we are to do it to the best of our abilities!
Great Day!

What is HIM? We know it stands for a high-impact man but what does that look like day to day? A HIM is Humble- puts others before himself, life is not about him but others, servant heart that finds joy in seeing others prosper. A HIM Invests in others- this takes time and attention to detail, put something into the cup of others don’t just take. A HIM is Mentally tough- overcomes life’s obstacles with grit and grace.

The PAX flat got after it this morning. Proud to coach this fine group of young and old men.

Ambition and Contentment:

We all long for contentment—and people with the right view of God’s ownership want to make sure they don’t fall into discontentment.

But you might wonder: Does being content mean you’re not charging forward toward God’s call for your life? Because those same people don’t want to do that, either! They don’t want to feel like they’re standing still in life, unmotivated and unambitious.

Proverbs 13:4 (NIV) offers an answer: “A sluggard’s appetite is never filled, but the diligent are fully satisfied.”

In other words, standing still doesn’t equal contentment, and ambition doesn’t equal discontentment.

Here’s the thing: Contentment is spiritual. It’s a sense of peace in the middle of a storm. And it has nothing to do with ambition.

Take Paul. He was constantly going, moving, preaching, teaching, discipling and ministering, even when it was really, really hard.

“I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want” (Philippians 4:11–12 NIV).

A content person still wants to do better and be better; he’s just not pinning all his hopes and dreams on that one thing that the culture is telling him he needs to fill the void in his heart. He’s grateful for what he has and thanks God for all of his blessings, even if they’re all he’ll ever have. But he’ll continue to grow, change and make a bigger impact on the world, as long as he’s able. That’s ambition.

Paul describes it this way in 1 Timothy 6:6–8 (NKJV): “Now godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. And having food and clothing, with these we shall be content.”

See the difference? Content people may not have the best of everything, but they make the best of everything.

And all the while, they still pursue everything with passion.
