7 PAX (0 FNGs) – Anklet, Utah, Pablo, Dial-up, Murse, C-Lo, Halpert on Q


Romans 12:12 – “Rejoice in hope, have patience in tribulation, and be constant in prayer.”

Murse, Pablo, and I had to be pall bearers at my Uncle Ken’s funeral on this day.  This scripture was one I left with my uncle one week earlier in the ICU.

Men of F3, we all face trials, we all struggle somewhere in some way.  Know the hope you can find in Christ Jesus if you don’t already.  The hope of life everlasting.  He is preparing a place in heaven for the saints, the believers on earth.  With that hope, no matter the tribulation, you can have patience and not anxiety.  Throughout it all, pray, pray, and pray some more.


Life is short, bear good fruit while you’re in this world.  There’s no reason not to.  Be a light for others.  Be a H-E-R-O “Help everyone regardless of outcome.”
