Chapter 1
Versus 3-5
“Must I forever see these evil deeds? Why must I watch all this misery? Wherever I look, I see destruction and violence. I am surrounded by people who love to argue and fight.”
‭‭ “The law has become paralyzed, and there is no justice in the courts. The wicked far outnumber the righteous, so that justice has become perverted.”
‭‭ “The Lord replied, “Look around at the nations; look and be amazed! For I am doing something in your own day, something you wouldn’t believe even if someone told you about it.”
We can easily feel like everything around us is chaos and have anxiety or stress about how to overcome it. This can be true for many aspects of our lives but remember as God told the prophet Habakkuk in a vision that he’s working plans that you could even fathom if he told you about them.
Try not to get overwhelmed with the aspects of life that you cannot control and focus on bettering yourself and the ones around you…there’s only one way to eat an elephant, one…bite…at…a…time

23 HIMs at JUCO. Nice! One FNG. Welcome Leggings!
Consider the faith of Noah. He was instructed to build a very large boat because of a coming flood. It had likely not rained before that point in time and it took decades to build the ark. Imagine the ridicule he must have received while building the ark. Through all of this, he didn’t loose faith and continued to build as instructed by God. Faith that is unshaken by any worldly thing is what God wants our faith to look like. Strive for that.
Great to be back and leading a JUCO bootcamps.
Hardship Hill tomorrow!

Jesus is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things have been created through Him and for Him. Colossians  1:15 

We need to keep God in the center of our life. That’s hard to do because God is an invisible God. The things we can see are much easier to put our attention on.  But if you always keep God in the center of your mind you will see God moving in so many ways. But how do you know that God is the center of your life?  If you think about a thing more than God you have that in the center of your life instead of God. 

I challenge you to look at how you are spending your free time, does it reflect God?  If your thoughts are always on

  • School (for some of us) 
  • work (most of you ) 
  • or a hobby, 
  • or worrying about COVID 
  • or even your next F3 workout 

–that may be a sign that Christ isn’t the center of your life.  

Instead if your thoughts are on Jesus and His Kingdom and loving others well, you have Christ as the center of your life.  Thank you for being men in my life who help me put Christ as the center.

@Median, Luke Brown, at 12yrs old felt the call to lead and bring a tough word to a tough and awesome group of HIM’s.  Very proud to call him my 2.0.  – Guardrail

Psalm 83:1-3
1 O God, do not remain silent;
do not turn a deaf ear,
do not stand aloof, O God.
2 See how your enemies growl,
how your foes rear their heads.
3 With cunning they conspire against your people;
they plot against those you cherish.

Discussed the need to trust in the Lord and bring our cares to him, rather than trying to argue with those around them thinking we’ll change their mind – God is in control and we need to have Him change hearts
