11PAX answered the call this morning and got better because of it. YHC was feeling a bit homesick today and as Yogi Berra is a native from Missouri I have included some of his quotes. After all F3 is “90 percent mental. The other half is physical.”
The Pax: Scout, FroYo, Waldorf, Sprocket, McFly, Rip, Flying Tomato, Dockers, Breaker, Ostertag AND not to be forgotten…..Aruba!
SSH, Grass catchers, Good mornings
Mozey around the Stronghold AO to the playground for some Bruce Lee (Freddy Mercury’s, WWII Situps, LBCs, Long Slow Flutter & American Hammers) and wide-arm Merkins. Then to the pooper shack for wall sits, sun Gods and Cusaks.
Back to the basketball courts for some Ranger Merkins followed by regular Merkins. Amble to the wall for LBDs, squats, Bulgarian split squats incline Merkins and step ups.
Mozey around the Stronghold AO to the playground…
Yep, Bruce Lee’s and Merkins. Then to the pooper shack for wall sits, sun Gods and Cusaks.
Back to the basketball courts for some Merkins followed by regular Merkins. Amble to the wall for LBDs, squats, Bulgarian split squats move to the tall side of the wall to do incline Merkins and step ups…which Dockers loved!
As time drew to a close, you know “It gets late early out here“, the COT formed and Waldorf prayed us out.
The MOD group was a bit light today. As Yogi would say, “Nobody goes there [The Bakery] anymore. It’s too crowded.”
When you know who you are, taking big risks makes sense. As men “we make too many wrong mistakes”and try to hide from how powerful we really are. We pretend to be someone else or act like someone else, but when we step in and step up as God’s men our identity is shaped by our loyalty to God and that loyalty is what drives our choices.
In F3 we get together challenge one another, build each other up, hold each other accountable. When needed, we pull in tight and emphasize that our identity as Christian men, as leaders in our community of faith means lining up on the right side of the ball. If you think about it, we risk more for God when our identity is firmly in God. Hey, I am pointing at myself here too guys! When I fully live into what God has in store, I have to be willing to go where He says, do what He asks. Scary? Yep! (scarier that Halloween scary) Where does your identity and loyalty lie to experience maximum connection with God and His Purposes?
