      1. “Intervention of God Through Man”
      2. Reading the book “Wild at Heart” by John Eldridge and he talks about the intervention of a man for the betterment of a boy or man’s life. And I immediately thought of my stepfather stepping into that father figure role I desperately needed. So it’s been just amazing to see how God has put men and father figures in my life that have bettered me and pushed me to be a better man myself. And essentially that’s what F3 has been for me – being blessed to be able to come out here and push each other to get better physically but it’s also so much about that 2nd F – Fellowship. Taking this outside the workouts and creating fellowship and brotherhood together. So, man it’s been awesome and a blessing for me and the younger guys in college to see how God has intervened in my life and put F3 in my life and men like y’all to continually and intentionally push me to get better. So thank you.

  • Casualty drag or fireman carry your brother halfway across the field and then switch

– Great work this morning – thanks for pushing each other

– So for this morning I’m gonna share something I’ve been pretty worried and anxious about with y’all. So my mom and sister are leaving Thursday to go to Europe for the whole summer and it’s just been weighing down on my heart for the past month with the state that the world is in and the terrible and evil terrorist attack that happened just last week even furthered my anxiety in regards to them leaving. And so questions started running through my head like “What if they don’t come back?” And I think processing these thoughts and praying about it helped me realize that that is exactly what the enemy wants to exceed at pulling us away from our faith in God and pushing us toward some dark places. But God has a funny way of showing up in the 11th hour, coming to our rescue and helping calm our hearts and so yesterday the verse of the day I get on my phone was 1 Peter 5:7 “Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you”

– And one of my favorite sayings is “Keep the Faith” and I find that so hard to do a lot of the time. But then God shows up. So as we go out into jobs, school, families, and just living day to day in this world – I encourage all of us to Keep The Faith because whatever darkness or hard place you might be going through right now, He’ll show up. We wouldn’t be here today if that wasn’t true. That’s all I got.

– Any prayer requests?

– Pray it out

  • “The most secure prisons are those we construct for ourselves.”
  • Rarely do we think about the constraints we place on our own lives. Everything we are afraid to try is a limitation to what we can become. Fear and anxiety keep us from trying new things. Looking back throughout our lives we can see many broken promises to ourselves. Often, we use excuses (not smart enough/not strong enough/ not enough time/etc.) to justify these broken promises. We pay too much attention to words – others and our own – and not enough to the action that defines us.
