CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Find something in your life that brings you real happiness and joy. Money can bring you happiness when you get that new car or go on that new vacation, but eventually that will diminish. For me, having my son has brought me that happiness. No amount of money can take that away from me, and I would spend every dollar I had to keep it. Find that thing in your life and embrace it.

4 Men this morning
CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Self Discipline has been on my mind a lot lately. I listened to the audio book Atomic Habits by James Clear recently and he talked about changing your identity. One example for me is that I want to complete two Motus triathlons this summer. My goal should not be to finish the triathlons, but to become a triathlete. When you change your identity, it changes how you do things. Now when I go to do something unhealthy, I think about whether or not a triathlete would do that. Because I am a triathlete and a triathlete wouldn’t do whatever it is I want to do, I don’t do it. This works no matter what your goal is. Want to quit smoking? Identify as a non-smoker. A non-smoker doesn’t smoke and that’s what you are, so you don’t smoke. Want to run a marathon? Then identify as a runner and do what runners do. So far it seems to be working for me!
MOLESKIN:
Today is Good Friday. Try to take some time to think about what that means to you. Happy Easter!
ANNOUNCEMENTS:
See the service opportunities channel in slack. If we have enough interest maybe even make one for Blount County? Let’s continue being HIMs outside of the gloom.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:

Spring signs (blooming flowers,  greening trees, growing grass) are beautiful examples of a living creatures accepting a power (the Sun) that is outside themselves. They don’t work for it.
    In the same way, because of Christ’s death and rising to life again (what we celebrate this weekend at Easter!) God offers us power/salvation over SIN and DEATH, a darkness much worse than winter. All we must do is trust him for it and receive it through faith
