CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Something that has been on my mind lately… Listened to a podcast that spoke about “Manifesting” – a new ideology on will power and the power of positive thinking (I am not condemning positive thinking). The issue with Manifesting is that it is totally self centered/reliant. “If I think hard enough, concentrate hard enough on getting _____ then I can get it.” It puts ourselves at the center of our universe.

But what happens when we don’t achieve it? Or what happens when we sacrifice everything to get that one thing that we want. It is a completely selfish ideology that can destroy you.

We need others. This is what is so attractive about F3. On my own, as much as I set my mind to it, I fail at working out. Sure I can got a few weeks/months, but ultimately I fail. F3 provides an environment of male community and support to lift me up and keep me going. Dare to do something you cannot do on your own.

Ultimately, From a Christian perspective, everything/everyone will eventually fail us.  At the end of Exodus 5 Moses has reached the end of himself. He cries out to God in frustration. Verse 22 “…O Lord, why have you done evil to this people?” So what does God do? Does God pump Moses up? No. He reminds Moses who He is. Read Exodus 6. “I… I… I… I… I… I…” We, and everything around us, were made to fail. So that we can come crawling to Him.

MOLESKIN:
Hats off to Hobo on the fitness test, I did modify it. However, there is no cheating on any of these items. You can’t cheat a T Merk, Burpee (in BS case MH), Murder Bunnies (BS Bear Crawl), Sprints, side shuffle, triple broad jump etc… I believe another Quarterly test is on the horizon, can you beat your previous time?
