COUNT-OFF & NAME-O-RAMA

6 HIMs made it out this morning

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:

My biggest temptation is to coast: in my fitness, in my marriage, my parenting, and my career. It’s so easy for me to put out fires, get to a comfortable place, and plateau. My F3 brothers do a great job of pushing me.

The challenge today is to identify where you’ve been coasting, give that extra effort, and go to bed tired— knowing you gave your full effort. We set the tone for the day by showing up this morning; now just keep it going.

MOLESKIN:

I really appreciate all my F3 brothers for pushing me and not leaving me where they found me.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Matthew 6:7-8 — “And when you pray, do not heap up empty phrases as the Gentiles do, for they think that they will be heard for their many words. Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.”

Encouraged the PAX in the freedom there is in not feeling like you have to be some professional when you pray.  God knows what you need.  He loves for you to go to Him in prayer.  Prayers can be brief, simple, unimpressive.  There’s freedom in knowing we can pray short prayers to God all throughout the day.

The UN-Matched Game

THE SCENE: Cold. Very cold. But not too cold. But cold enough to be cold. But not really that cold. Kind of like cold when your cold and think it could be more cold but don’t want it to be colder. That kind of cold.

“And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.”
‭‭Hebrews‬ ‭10:24-25‬ ‭

talked about our need for the church. Not the actual building, although important to be there, but being with other believers and leaning on each other, learning with each other and loving each other.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Your word is a lamp to guide my feet and a light for my path. -Psalms 119:105

We want to see the big picture.  We want to know the path before us before we go.  To know what pitfalls might lie ahead.  Gods desire is for us to trust him today.  Just do today.  His word will guide our feet and show us just enough path for us to follow.  We don’t need to see what’s up ahead.  Just what is here right now, and trust he has our best interest at heart.
