9 HIMs showed up to get better at JUCO this morning.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
“WWJD” Many of us remember when the “What Would Jesus Do” fad happened in the 90’s. Although the fad was more about collecting bracelets and trying to look cool, the words are just as true today as they ever have been. We should consider this phrase every time we make a decision.

Romans 13:14

“But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to gratify its desires.”

MOLESKIN:
Trolley’s beatdown on Wednesday was still fresh, so today’s workout was intended to allow each HIM to move at their own speed.
