Today we did core, and while a core burnout was much needed, there is a reason
behind the choice of beatdown today. Often in life, we as men are faced with decisions
that we do not want to make and would rather completely avoid, skip or hide from.
Sometimes we go through seasons of life where we have problems in our marriages,
with our kids, parents, work, church etc, and it is hard to see the end of the tunnel. Guys
when this happens, sometimes we must have the guts to stand up for whats right, and
to do what isn’t the easiest, but whats right. Sometimes, we have to do whats wrong in
the eyes of people to do whats right in the eyes of God. As we strengthened our core
today, a strong physical core is not as important as a strong spiritual, mental, or
emotional core, and I hope you strengthen that core for when Life throws you a
curveball when you were sitting fastball. That’ all I got today. Make sure your Core is
strengthened for those tough times.

“When the going gets tough, the tough get going 
1 Peter 3:15 ESV
But in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to
make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in
you; yet do it with gentleness and respect


Had to cut out Round 5 and go straight to 6 for time sakes. Originally planned to be in the grass, but per the PAX, and dryer option was present so we took advantage.


Continued Prayers for El Chapo and his little brother who has terminal Cancer.

One Monday a month 3rd-F at Chubby’s needs volunteers so jump on the 3rd-f channel.

Bonsai has multiple third round job interviews. Prayer for strength and wisdom through these processes. Big answers to prayers thus far.
