Talking Points:
Staying Motivated, Being an Inspiration to Those Around You.
The Feeling of Surrounding Yourself With a Team of HIMs Getting Better Together. Not a competition between each other like we see in everyday life, but more like that competitive athletic team where we hold the person to our right and left to a higher standard. I Get Better Because He Gets Better; Therefore, We All Get Better.
Refereed to “The Beast Inside”…IT STILL LIVES!
The Desire, Strength and Willingness To Overcome and Succeed With This PAX is a True Blessing! I Find Myself Overwhelmed With Excitement Every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday. Many of the PAX Are Gaining The Confidence To VQ And I’m Stoked to See it Happen!
No Announcements Were Made.

With today being Halloween, you’re going to see a lot of people wearing masks.  As you see those outward masks, take a moment to think about the masks and disguises that people around us wear every day.  There may be deep wounds or scars that they do their best not to show.  The way we interact and respond to them can either entrench that mask even more deeply or it can help loosen it a bit.

With that in mind, as you go through your day give grace to others if they react or respond to you in a negative or unexpected way.  They may be acting from a place of that pain that they are trying so hard to keep hidden.  As you show grace and demonstrate Christ’s love in the situation, you can be an instrument that God uses to bring healing.

Also, examine yourself and see what masks you may be wearing.  Not that you should always be an open book and dump everything on everyone, but consider who may be in your life that you’re hiding from.  Cultivate those deeper relationships that go behind the masks and into the heart of who you truly are.
I love seeing this AO taking off!  What a solid group of HIMs working hard to get better, and growing every time!  It was an honor to lead you today.  Keep up the EHing!

New record for Al Gore Tuck Jumps – 6 today! I’ll keep Q’ing ’em up until we can crank out 10…

No Bomb Shelter workout this Saturday… Convergence at the Asylum at 7. Every Knoxville AO coming together for one workout.  It will be epic, you don’t want to miss it!  New location for the 2nd anniversary potluck – details to follow on GroupMe.
