You don’t have to travel or gain to earn rest in God

1 Timothy 1:15-16: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners – of whom I [Paul] am the worst.  But for that very reason I was shown mercy so that in me, the worst of sinners, Christ Jesus might display his unlimited patience as an example for those who would believe on him and receive eternal life.
Paul was a really bad dude.  He hated Christians and and enjoyed killing them / watching them be killed for sport.  In the very midst of that, on a trip to Damascus to participate in more persecution, God met him.  God doesn’t need for us to achieve a certain status or clean up our act before he’ll meet us.  He seeks after us constantly and desires to meet us exactly where we are so that his grace and mercy can be put on display, and so our faith in him can grow more abundant.  You can’t earn it, so don’t allow your ego let you think that you need to put forth more effort before you call on him.
Congrats to Sprinkles on the announcement of his wife’s pregnancy!

Word on King Hezekiah and how to deal with aspects of our lives that are distracting us from a committed relationship with God.

2 Kings 18:3-7 – [Hezekiah] did what was right in the eyes of the Lord, just as his father David had done.  He removed the high places, smashed the sacred stones, and cut down the Asherah poles.  He broke into pieces the bronze snake Moses had made, for up to that time the Israelites had been burning incense to it.  Hezekiah trusted in the Lord, the God of Israel.  There was no one like him among all the kings of Judah, either before him or after him.  He held fast to the Lord and did not cease to follow him; he kept the commands the Lord had given Moses.  And the Lord was with him…


God wants a relationship and sometimes we’re unwilling to commit because of certain aspects of our lives that we’re afraid of being asked to let go of.  Remove your high places and smash your sacred stones.  God’s rewards will far outweigh what you’ll leave behind.

I’ve failed, over and over again in my life, and that’s why I succeed- Michael Jordan (G.O.A.T)

For the Gate is Narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are few- Matthew 7:14

Let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us- Hebrews 12:1

Incremental Growth

The Thang:

5:30 COP – 7 min

  • Baby arm circles X 10 (forward/backward)

  • Merkin
  • Goofball
  • Jog 2 parking lot laps

Line up in parking lot Burpee Dans

Beginning at the curb, perform 4 lunges then 4 burpees, rinse and repeat across parking lot, run back to curb. Then 4 lunges and 3 burpees. Rinse and repeat (then 2 burpees, then 1 burpee). Plank or BBS until group finishes.

Mosey to lower parking lot – find a battle buddy

One man runs the length of the parking lot, performs 5 Merkins, then runs back while partner does Merkins (100), then BBS (200), then jump squats (100). Trade each lap until the total number is completed.

Next exercise:

Group splits: Half begin Bearpees (10 bear crawls followed by 1 Burpee), while the other half start Bernie Sanders on the hill. Bernie Sanders group relieves Bearpee group. Endless until 6:15am.


Growth is hard to see. We measure growth. When an acorn is crushed by a 1,000 lb. tombstone, who wins? It’s a no brainer. The acorn always wins. God waters it, and slow growth appears. Let’s all work toward incremental growth in our spiritual life– the same way we are working toward growing in fitness and strength.
