CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Asking for help is ok. Emotionally as men we may bottle up our feeling because if we ask for help we think there is something wrong with us. Just like we need help from our brothers out here to get better physically we need to rely on our brothers and significant people in our lives to get better emotionally.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:

Hot Spots, we all have them. These are areas of insecurity or a nerve that gets touched. Maybe it’s anger in relation to a familiar trigger, maybe its self-doubt or a habitual sin.  When they show up, it’s never pretty. The devil can take a hold of you in these moments because you allow yourself get so wrapped around the axle when they pop up. Each time that hot spot gets lit up you can’t love others the way you were created to. You stop showing up as the best version of yourself because you are focused on the sin/insecurity/fill in the blank.
Stop in those moments and listen to the truth about yourself:  You were created in His image and He doesn’t make mistakes. You are a well-loved and cared for son of an Almighty God.
Take that hot spot and lay it down at the foot of the cross, leave it there. Pick up the Truth about yourself and refer back to it in your heart and mind when and if that hot spot ever pops back up.

Insert any personal comments, notes, devotion content, etc.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
I have been treating some of my daily life like an assembly line.  There are large task that I need and want to finish and by setting aside a little time every day, I have started to complete some of these things.  Nothing is too large to accomplish or overcome.  Sometimes it takes a whole assembly line of support, or you learn how to do the next part of the assembly line and you keep moving.  Eventually you get a finished product.

Four cones were set up in a rectangle across the grinder. Each person started at a different cone and did the first exercise there. Then they moved clockwise to the next cone by either bear crawling (shorter side of the rectangle) or doing a defensive slide (longer side of the rectangle). They then did the first exercise at the next cone and so on until they finished the first exercise at all four cones. Each time we completed four exercises, we ran up the troll bridge and did 10 bodybuilders before going back and moving on to the next set of exercises.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Matthew 7:13-14 says “Enter by the narrow gate, since the road that leads to destruction is wide and spacious, and many take it, but it is a narrow gate and a hard road that leads to life, and only a few find it.”

I feel like this verse is applicable to anything we do in life. As F3 men, we walk a narrow road each day when we decide to wake up early and workout. We have to strive to take the narrow path in each and everything we do. Comfort and ease are the barriers to happiness and success.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Let the men know I RSVPed to GoRuck that I would not be attending Selection. Biggest reason to me was I had no WHY. I have struggled since I signed up to find my WHY and after the reality show joke that was Team Assessment I have basically decided I’m done with GoRuck challenge type events. Star Course is another story 🙂
MOLESKIN:
So this was worse than I remember it being when Moses and I did it last year. Turns out I added in too many Broad Jumps. My B.
