Spoke about the Christmas Story in Luke and how it has got me thinking about the plans we make for our life and how we sometimes stray from God’s plan to make our own. In the story of Jesus’ birth, Mary was a young teenager when she was approached by the angel telling her she was to give birth to the Messiah. The reality is, Mary had plans. She was to merry Joseph, grow up and start a family. She must have been terrified. However, she did not let the fear overcome her, she stuck with the plan that the angel laid out for her. So many times in life, the reality is that we make our own plans. We know how we want our days, weeks and even years to end up. In the end, we must shift our way to thinking to allow God’s plan to enter our hearts, especially when we least expect it. We must allow God to interrupt our lists and our plans so that we can live in glory for him. My challenge to myself and all PAX in attendance was to be open to interruption from God’s plan. It is always better than our own plan even when we don’t feel like it is.


First three PAX to show up (myself included) are all dealing with upper body injuries/pain of some sort. PAX asked Q to modify with less upper body. Turns out Q already had a Leg Day planned. Worked out great!

PAX are well aware of their own limitations….especially when it comes to 200 pickle pointers. “We will never last that long”
