CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM: Joel 2:12-13
It’s good to be reminded that God heals brokenness that we can’t heal. He will fix everything in his timing.
“Yet even now,” declares the Lord,
“return to me with all your heart,
with fasting, with weeping, and with mourning;
13 and rend your hearts and not your garments.”
Return to the Lord your God,
for he is gracious and merciful,
slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love;
and he relents over disaster.
THE RUINS ruined many a man this morning. Apparently having your head below your body is tougher than YHC expected. It was very hard. The pull up station, monkey bars, hills, stairs, etc lend themselves to at least 9,876,543,219 more variations of workouts we could do there.
Look out for CSAUP Ruck Simulation coming soon…
Sir Mix A Lot is Q’ing the next Ruins workout on 7/19…..
