1 Lap and BBSU suicides (11 BB’s per, 55 total)
1 Lap and merkin suicides (11 merkins per, 55 total)

50 Flutter Kicks (270 total of burpees, BBSU, merkins, supermans, and flutter kicks- 270 electoral votes needed to elect POTUS)

The Word (BOM):
I want to share about today being election day- live a life worthy of being elected (a political election or a spiritual election). Easy to sit back and complain- be a difference maker. How do we make a difference? By loving those we come in contact with everyday. Love wins, it is the greatest way. We come to F3 for more than the physical exercise. We long to be a part of something greater than ourselves. Go forth in love today!

Writers inspired by God and separated by several centuries wrote these words of advice to encourage Christians:

Old Testament states the following: Proverbs 4:23 “Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.

New Testament letter stated the following: Philippians 4:7 “And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.

We must be “on guard” against Satan at all times to protect our friends and families. Satan is ruthless and cunning and while we would never intentionally let down our guard and let him attack our family, we must always “guard our heart” to defeat him.

The PAX repeated the phrase “Guard your heart” twice for emphasis on what to remember from the session and we closed with a prayer to guard the PAX families, a prayer of wisdom for our political leaders during the election and after, and finally a prayer of thankfulness for Jesus paying the ultimate sacrifice for us.

Doubt is something I have dealt with my entire life. I have doubted my ability to Q among many other things. Most importantly, I have doubted my salvation. In 1 John 5:13, John says “I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may KNOW that you have eternal life.” God does not want us to doubt, but if we do, He is always faithful and comes through for us. If you have questions about the security of your faith, I suggest the book Stop Asking Jesus Into Your Heart by J.D. Greear.

I have been thinking quite a bit about being a good steward of what God has provided.  God owns everything – (Psalm 24:1-2).  The earth is the LORD’s, and everything in it, the world, and all who are in it.  Accept what you have – (1 Timothy 6:7-8) Basically this verse says you come into the world with nothing and leave with nothing.  Seek first His Kingdom, and submit your requests to Him – (Matthew 6:33) But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.

Guys, realize that we are here to simply manage what is already His.  We need to seek out his kingdom, his righteousness and aim to use what he has blessed us with for His glory rather than our own.
