Intercede for your wives just as Christ intercedes on our behalf. When we pray we need to always include our wives in our prayers. As husbands we are called to present her as holy and blameless. Pray for her greatest need, (same as ours) for her to have a deeper relationship with Jesus in her life.

David vs Goliath story shared from I Samuel 17. David selected 5 smooth stones to kill the Philistine. God places stones/things in our life to fight with. David May seem brash and cocky but he recalls God’s faithfulness in the past and claims this for future success.

13 PAX at the Pound today, including special guest from Charlotte area Kilowatt
CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Waiting for our house to sell has been a real test of patience. We are learning to wait on Him, not just with a passive “doing nothing” kind of waiting, but seeking Him to try to understand His will for us. If you’re waiting too, try to seek God during that time rather than just passively waiting as though you’re waiting on a bus or something…
MOLESKIN:
I realized as I stood up from an exercise at the top of the hill that I should have swapped the up/down exercises. Same work, but we would have gotten to enjoy the view out over the lake doing the standing exercises vs. the ones where you’re just looking at the ground!

I talked about being a good role model for our kids but not allowing our kids to put us as their example. We will fail and we will fail in front of them. Their ultimate example needs to be that of Christ.
