QIC shared that addiction and living in a make believe reality have brought on significant, life-altering consequences.  One would think the lesson would be learned at that point, but the reality of human nature is that until we are dead, we are plagued by our vices and pursuits–whether sex, alcohol, money, success, or even “good” living.  QIC recounted the life of Israelite King David, who after essentially raping a woman and having her husband sent to his death on the front lines prayed to God not for sexual purity or the elimination of his vice, but for the joy of his salvation to be restored.  For the renewal of his heart.  As a Christian male, the arc of David’s story is very meaningful to YHC.  At the end of the day, we don’t simply need less of the things that wreck us.  We need more of God.  Luckily, because of Jesus, we can have that.


During the bearcrawl back to startex, QIC’s phone began to pocket dial his ex-wife.  This resulted in a very distracted and disheveled QIC.  Cobains to the PAX for only giving 50% to that portion of the workout, and T-Claps to the PAX for carrying on in spite of my orbit.
