CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:

In this time of covid I’ve been skipping church and missing worship.  After church I watch the sermons but fast foreword through worship. This is not good. God caught my heart with some awesome songs by Jeremy Camp over the weekend and it brought me to worship quickly.  I miss worship greatly and once I started to worship it really lifted my heart.  I encourage you my brothers to not forsake worship.. Your heart needs it.  During our workout today I brought around a little speaker and played some rockin worship. I hope it inspired you to press on through the tough times. There are some awesome Christian artists out there today producing great songs. I highly recommend  Jeremy Camp, Sanctus Real, Zach Williams, Unspoken, David Crowder, Austin French, Toby Mac, Big Daddy Weave.  Those were the artists of the playlist we listened to while working out. Then at the end I handed out the lyrics of “Indestructible Soul” by Jeremy Camp.

My flesh may fail me, but my future is secure. These lies may break me down, But one thing is for sure. I will fight again, Find the fire again, For me to live is Christ and to die is gain.  I give it all away, ‘Cause these worldly things will not be the end of me
I know my soul is indestructible
When I’m standing in Your love My fear, it turns to dust
I’ve got this hope, and it’s unbreakable
No power strong enough, Nothing can overcome
My indestructible soul
My indestructible soul
I’m walking in the truth that life is in Your hands, Knowing You go before me helps me understand. That You’re my defense, What can stand against.
I know the darkness has no chance. How You lift me up. Keep my eyes above, And now I’m running free.
I know my soul is indestructible
When I’m standing in Your love, My fear, it turns to dust
I’ve got this hope, and it’s unbreakable
No power strong enough, Nothing can overcome
My indestructible soul
My indestructible soul
There’s no fire, there’s no pain That can take my peace away. There’s no wall I can’t climb, When it’s You that leads the way. There’s no fire, there’s no pain That can take my peace away There’s no wall I can’t climb When it’s You that leads the way
My soul is indestructible
When I’m standing in Your love My fear, it turns to dust
I know my soul is indestructible
When I’m standing in Your love My fear, it turns to dust
I’ve got this hope, and it’s unbreakable
No power strong enough Nothing can overcome
My indestructible soul
My indestructible soul
My indestructible soul
My indestructible soul
My indestructible soul

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:

As I was creating the beatdown Friday and prior to laying down for bed I had asked the Lord to provide me with the words to share for the men that would be there in the morning. When my alarm went off and I grabbed my phone from the night stand Ephesians 4:31-32 was showing as a notification. As I saw this and began to dig into it a bit more I had realized the next 2 verses were along the same content/message and took this as a sign.  I shared and spoke a bit to the following verses with the men Saturday:

Ephesians 4:31-32: Let all bitterness, anger and wrath, shouting and slander be removed from you, along with all malice. And be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving one another, just as God also forgave you in Christ.

1 Thessalonians 5:15: See to it that no one repays evil for evil to anyone, but always pursue what is good for one another and for all.

Hebrews 12:14: Pursue peace with everyone, and holiness – without it no one will see the Lord.

MOLESKIN:
Shout out to multiple groups of Men out getting better Saturday morning; Including Archie and Erector running a 12 miler and Snorkel, Cap-n-crunch, Woodshack, A-rod, and Fast-n-Easy for a 10 mile ruck beatdown! Good stuff brothers!

To Infinity and Beyond

THE SCENE: Low 70’s but a beat steamy; perfect beat down weather

WARM-O-RAMA: 4ct SSH (IC) x 25; 4ct Plank Jacks (IC) x 10; 4ct Iron Mikes (IC) x 5

THA-THANG: Mosey toward upper lot in figure 8 pattern stopping for plank jacks and squats at various intervals.

Infinite pain stations in upper lot – 6 cones spread out in upper lot creating a figure 8 course, PAX ran (OYO) to each cone and performed the workout listed – began at 20 reps and reduced by 1 at each cone; Cone 1: SSH, Cone 2: BBS, Cone 3: Plank Jacks, Cone 4: Iron Mikes, Cone 5: Squat Jumps, and Cone 6: Carolina Dry Docks.

Saint Patty Circle of Pain – PAX spread out around short brick circle wall; round 1: 1 HIM at a time performed 5 dips while the rest of the PAX did jump ups/step ups; Round 2: 1 HIM ata a time performed 5 incline merkins while the rest of the PAX did dips (or squats once arms were dead).

Bonus push – Indian plank train headed back toward AO; all PAX lined in single file line doing plank, HIM at 6 runs to front of line and resumes plank, rinse and repeat to move the train forward; paused for Rocky Balboa’s for 90 seconds; mosied back through the figure 8 circuit near AO pausing occasionally for plank jacks, SSH, and LBC.  Arrived back at the AO with just enough time for some cherry pickers to end with a stretch.

MARY: No time for this.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM: Rambled a bit about the weight and magnitude of standing before other men and proclaiming the words given to us by our Almighty God, Savior, and Heavenly Father – humility should be felt and care should be had.  Mentioned the imperfection of those sharing wisdom in our worlds, whether it is CNN, FOX, or Snapchat… they do not know all and are sinful people with bias.  The only perfect man with all truth was Jesus and He is our only hope.  So instead of seeking wisdom and guidance and opinion-verification from sinful, passing men, we would do better to humble ourselves before a benevolent and grace-filled Heavenly Father.  Shared Psalm 139:23-24. Prayed for mercy, grace, and healing in our communities and throughout the whole world.
