CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
While traveling yesterday I heard a man say on The Message radio station “We look for God in the destination but He is often found in the detour.” Many of us have had detours this year that have affected us physically, emotionally, spiritually, financially, at work, at home etc and we don’t understand why things aren’t going the way we planned and wonder where God is.

We are looking to Him and for Him in the end and are not looking to understand His meaning and plan for us in the midst of our detour. So if you are like Daniel in the Lion’s Den, Moses by the Burning Bush or even like Jonah in the belly of the whale. Seek God and look for Him and know that He is with you and He has a plan for you that might not be what you expected and your circumstances don’t make sense but know that you are right where He wants you. He is with you and will lead you out.  It’s just a detour.

MOLESKIN:

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Talked about Paul’s ministry and how we was bold, yet he also had a plan to engage with audiences where his conversation was likely to be engaging.   We should practice this in our walk as well as we try to reach others with the gospel.  Look for fertile soil where the conversation will be received.   We can be bold and smart at the same time.

Goals are simply dreams with a deadline. We all need accountability to help us reach our goals and not just perceive them as dreams. Goals are achievable only though daily habit changes. It’s changing the daily grind that will help to get us closer to our goals and dreams.

None

F3 WELCOME & DISCLAIMER
WARM-O-RAMA:

  • 20 x Imperial Walker IC

  • 20 x American Hammer (4ct.) IC
  • 20 x Overhead Clamp IC (except I-Beam, who was deliberately out of cadence)

THA-THANG:
PAX counted off 1-4 and split into groups of 4 people each. One PAX from each group was designated “injured” and had to be carried by the remaining three. PAX rotate as needed while we headed for the Pav-A-Lon. We paused for 20 Iron Mikes (4 ct. OYO) while some of the folks rested their shoulders.

Once at the Pav-A-Lon, each PAX drew two cards from the card. The number designated the rep count and the suit designated the exercise as follows:

  • Hearts = Pull-ups
  • Clubs = Burpees
  • Spades = Dips
  • Diamonds = Diamond Merkins

Face cards = 10 and Aces = 11.

Between rounds PAX moseyed to the top of the hill and bear crawled back down.

We broke back into groups and carried our injured teammates back to the AO.

MARY:
We cashed out with two rounds of ATMs!

COUNT-OFF & NAME-O-RAMA
Two FNGs today – good work guys!
CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
I shared a story with the PAX of a college senior that was seeking guidance because she was stressed about decisions others were making for her. We talked about the importance of remembering that we are grown-ups that are not only capable of, but responsible for, our own decisions. It’s easy to get complacent and let others lead, but there comes a time when you need to step up and do your own thing.
MOLESKIN:
TAP to the Junk clan – we missed you out there today, brother!
ANNOUNCEMENTS:
Truckin’ to the Pound coming up in September.
