CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Spoke from Matthew 14.  The story of Jesus walking on water.  Prior to walking on water, Jesus told the disciples to get into a boat and go out on the sea.  Later on, while they were on the water a storm came up and they were afraid, then Jesus walked out to the boat and calmed the storm.   This mornings point was that the disciples did exactly as Jesus told them to do, yet they still encountered a storm.  Life is this way – Jesus told us the Christian life would be difficult.  Do not believe the lie that says storms only arise in your life because you are outside of the will of God.  Quite the contrary, storms are often the mark of a Christian following God’s commands.

High Wind Advisory Stand In Q

THE SCENE:

At 4:30am, the alarm sounded along with a massive amount of noise from the heavy rain and high wind.  GroupMe messages started flying around to see if the QIC (Frosty) was going to cancel the workout.  A few shameful posts later and YHC drug himself out of the house in the now misty morning.  After arriving at the AO, YHC found no one in sight and again began the troll on GroupMe.  Many were attempting to arrive only to be turned around or forced back to the fartsack due to downed trees and blocked roadways.  Three vigilant PAX included YHC were able to post.

F3 WELCOME & DISCLAIMER

Welcome and quick disclaimer due to lost time waiting on PAX to arrive

WARM-O-RAMA:
Short warm-up included the following:

  • SSH – IC x 20
  • Cherry Pickers – IC x 10

THA-THANG:
Due to the spontaneous Q to cover for Frosty, YHC pulled out the FitDeck Exercise Playing Cards.  Pulling one at a time, the PAX made it through around 30 cards before having to call it quits for the morning.  There was no shortage of soaking up the surrounding water, stretching out on all four sides getting better together.  A good amount of mumble chatter occurred along with the surrounding sounds of falling branches and trees.

COUNT-OFF & NAME-O-RAMA
3 PAX including YHC (I-Beam), WaxJob and Bueller

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Listened to a good audiobook this week by Billy Crystal and Kevin Cline called “Have a Nice Day”.  The story told of a the final day of a man, actually the POTUS, who was contacted by the Grimm Reaper early one morning.  After some convincing, he was allowed to finish out the day to address some family matters that were incomplete.  The moral of the story was “live every day as if it were your last.”

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Is your Christian walk a cruise ship or a war ship?   It is so easy to slip into complacency and comfort as a Christian in America.  The Bible continually tells us we are at war with the evil one – our lives should reflect this.  On a cruise ship the captain is the head entertainer, on a war ship the captain leads us into battle.  On a cruise ship the crew is there to meet your needs, on a war ship you are expected to hold up your brothers up and hold them accountable.  A cruise ship docks when the war begins, a war ship sails headlong into battle.  As men we should all have a warship mentality – Christ promised us this life would be tough if we chose to follow him.  I pray that you find your strength in Christ as you put on Gods armor and go headlong into battle each day.
