You cant out King your Queen- The first F is simple fitness, but its not just working out, in fact most of us cant just work out but we also need to understand what we are putting into our bodies. There was a time in the past 15 years of my life where i weighed 300 pounds. i was lazy and did not care what i put into my body. its important that we understand that setting up guiderails for ourselves to know what we can eat and still improve our fitness is a key part of being a HIM.

YHC read a small piece from Q Source, i encourage everyone to check it out and think about how your treating your Queen.

    CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
  • For my 100th post, I wanted to tell you about what F3 has meant to me.  Before I started working on myself, I was 334lbs. of a sad clown.  I believe that is why the F3 phrase, “Leave no man behind and no man where you found him.”  I realized I needed to change, and I needed good men around me to do it.  This reminded me of a story about Moses in Exodus 17:8-13.  Israel was fighting against the Amalekites, and verse 12 says, “But when Moses’ hands grew weary, they took a stone and put it under him, and he sat on it, while Aaron and Hur held up his hands…so his hands were steady until the going down of the sun.”  As long as Moses’ hands were held up, Israel had victory. That is what F3 is to me.  You men have held me up, held me accountable, motivated, and kicked my tail all across the 2 AO’s where I post.  Why is this important?  It’s important because F3 is a brotherhood, and today many men are trapped in a cycle of helplessness and loneliness.  I know.  I was there.  Our culture seems to breed situations where men become isolated, sad, and disengaged from their God, their families, and each other.  I don’t want that for anyone.  So, just a reminder, F3 is a brotherhood of men that holds each other up.  Don’t live your lives thinking you have to fight alone.  My final thought on brotherhood and holding each other up comes from a man that fought in WWII.  His name was Carwood Lipton.  When he was being interviewed for the HBO special Band of Brothers, at one point he quoted from Shakespeare’s Henry the V to talk about what it mean to be in Easy company.  He said, “From this day to the ending of the world, but we in it shall be remembered, we few, we happy few, we band of brothers, For he today that sheds his blood with me, shall be my brother.”  We all come to F3 for different reasons.  We stay because we are brothers, and no one leave a brother behind.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
“Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one receives the prize? So run that you may obtain it.” 1 Corinthians 9:24

What are we doing to make sure we win the race? Just like it takes discipline and training to win a race, we need to be disciplined and be training to lead in the race of life. We win that race by being the leaders that God intends us to be. We must first lead our families, then lead in our churches, workplaces, and any where else God places us. We can lead by example even if we don’t have a title that would indicate that we are in charge. We can do everything to the best of our abilities no matter whether someone is watching or not.
