Wow, that was tough.  Really great combination of exercises that smoked the PAX…Try it you’ll like it!  I always enjoy Tweet-E’s mumblechatter…every time you think you’re on the edge, he’s there to kick the can right over and spill out what you would have otherwise left unsaid!  Gotta love it!  (I think Bartman would agree based on his reaction today)  Good to have Swirlie out there again – I don’t think he had enough energy to go home and have his usual second workout in his garage…  Tank was back in action (heh heh), and Lobster got his first taste of #RopesNBells – looking forward to having him out more often!

Use your talents for God’s work. 1 Peter 4:10 says “Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God’s grace in it various forms”. When we take the talent and gifts that God provided us with to benefit others we are fulfilling God’s purpose for our lives. If we float through life and do not use these talents then we are disregarding God’s perfect will for our lives.

The parable of the sower
“Others, like seed sown on rocky places, hear the word and at once receive it with joy. But since they have no root, they last only a short time. When trouble or persecution comes because of the word, they quickly fall away.”
‭‭Mark‬ ‭4:16-17‬ ‭
Persecution, strife, pain, struggle and trials in our lives will come. So what do we do? Will we wither away or will we dig in with our roots?
James 1:2-3 says
“Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance.”
Push through Physically and mentally with faith in our God who strengthens us. Pray. Read his word, lean on your brothers and do not give up.
Our Championship Belt is waiting on us in heaven!
Great work by the PAX today, I saw some men pushing themselves to get better.  Here is some F3 math for you…
17 men + a large Octagon shape + moaning and grunting + CMUs + private parking lot= cops being called
Who better to diffuse the situation than Mayberry!

The Share (BOM):

Love with vs Love for. Too often we want to do FOR our family/friends/co-workers instead of doing things WITH them. “WITH” love encourages, models, walks beside, and holds people accountable. In F3 we have a model of what it looks like when others love us, hold us accountable, and encourage us through the tough times.

It was a great morning and the 25 strong pushed it and got better!
