“Taste and see that the Lord is good. Oh, the joys of those who take refuge in him! Fear the Lord, you his godly people, for those who fear him will have all they need. Even strong young lions sometimes go hungry, but those who trust in the Lord will lack no good thing.”
‭‭Psalms‬ ‭34:8-10‬ ‭NLT‬‬
Went to Vegas on a business trip this week and everyone I mentioned it to laughed and said stuff like “sin city”, “what happens there stays there”, and “try not to lose your shirt” in an approving and joking manner.  Having battled sexual sin and the temptation of pornography in media most of my life… I see sin as no laughing matter.  As a believer and follower of Jesus Christ, I choose to battle my sin on my knees looking to a good and loving Savior who willfully died a brutal death on the cross to free me from the power of sin.  Encouraged the PAX to pray for and help those fighting various sin and temptations in their lives.

“You all know your injuries” past, present and future. But an injury doesn’t mean you can’t come out in the morning. An injury means “Modify If You Have To”, and if all you can do is walk, then we’ve all pledged that No Man is Left Behind so we’ll walk with you, or we’ll wagon wheel, or we’ll bear crawl alongside.  If you can’t do an exercise for what ever reason, talk to me, talk to others. I’m sure we’ll be able to come up with something suitably grueling that doesn’t involve shoulders, or hips, or knees.
Posting consistently is the name of the game, not what you do when you get here. Getting out of the Fartsack is the first step in mending the injury be it physical, mental, or spiritual. Just because you are injured, doesn’t mean you aren’t accountable.
Keeping the routine and doing one armed SSH for the last few weeks has helped me get over my shoulder knack.

Today is 3/16 and we discussed John 3:16.  The world was broken in that time period like it is broken now.  God loved the world enough to send his Son to die so that we could be saved.  He was sent to save the world, not condemn the world.  The world is broken today too, God still cares and still loves us.  Take some time to show his love, and lead with kindness in this broken world.
