Number off and Name-O-Rama

P-nut referenced 2 Corinthians 1:1-11.  Paul wrote about how suffering brings about a closer walk with Jesus, and through adversity we endure and can be an example to others.  Remember to celebrate through your suffering and to we aware when your brothers are struggling.  Pick them up.  Let’s get better- together.

P-nut prayed us out.  Special mention of Bandwagon’s back pain and Cap’n Crunch and his all-nite RUCK run.

2.94 total miles and a multitude of squats, merkins and burpees.  Crawdad brought his usual “A” game with the mumblechatter and kept the PAX entertained.  T-claps to Proton for noticing that an FNG had Velcro on their shoes (hence the new name “Velcro”).  Nice to have a total of 4 FNG’s this Saturday.

God bless.

Hello Dolly      ICx25

Number off and Name O Rama

YHC read Proverbs 17:17 and discussed that we need to lean on our brothers when we face adversity.  We also need to have the awareness to see when our brothers need a lift.

YHC then prayed us out.

Lots of spirited mumblechatter and general male goofiness.  It’s a blessing to begin the day with this group.

Tunnel of Love
Finish up with a little tunnel of love

Number off and Name-O-Roma: 29 PAX, 5 FNGs

Yes, in a tennis match love means “nothing”—–15-love, 30-love, 40-love. But to a Christian and a HIM (High Impact Man) love is everything. Jesus commands us to love one another. Sometimes this is not easy to love others who are not like us, don’t treat us well, or don’t believe the same as we do. Matthew 22:37 Jesus was asked which commandment was the greatest. He replied “love the Lord your God with all your heart, your soul, and your mind. And the second is like it, love your neighbor as yourself”. How do we love God with all our heart? Obey His commands, spend time in His word, spend time meditating and in prayer. How do we love our neighbor? Look for opportunities to be the hands and feet of Jesus. Just for today make the decision to be less selfish and more Christ-like—–encourage others, engage with those around you and help them however you can. Serve others, love on your wife and kids, love on your parents and friends—-love them well!!!!

How can we help those around us? The people we know, that we don’t know, our families, people we see every day, people we’ve met for the first time: how can we lift them up? Well, just keep it simple, stupid and get back to the basics: encourage one another. Encourage in their struggles, in their strengths, hardships, celebrations. Something as small as “you’re doing a great job, keep it up” can make all the difference in someone’s day.

Support scripture: 1 Thessalonians 5:9-11; Hebrews 3:12,13

The 12 PAX brought plenty of chatter with them to start off their Friday morning. Encouragement throughout the workout was present and very needed as we all struggled thinking of a total of 275 BBS at the end! Welcome Snowden! Looks like rain later in the day, glad we beat it and got better together.
