Smokey and Reborn joined YHC on this mild humid February morning to kick off Friday on the right foot. I had a plan that involved some miles, explained to the PAX where we were headed, and we were off. ( Each man was ready with high visibility gear and a head lamp ✔)
We left the parking lot, crossed Cherry Road and turned left on Eden Terrace off of Charlotte towards Winthrop Lake. We ran to the lake and completed one loop around and stopped for some quick boot.
- 20 Flutters
- 20 LBC’s
- 15 Box Cutters
- 20 American Hammers-recover
Another Lap. As we ran this was a good time to chat, reflect, and just be together. I think it is simple and unspoken things about F3 that I get the most out of. Just iron sharpening iron.
- 20 Merkins
- 20 Shoulder Taps
- 6 inches and back to plank
- 6 inches-recover
We did a 3rd lap around the lake and went back to the AO the way we came.
Between lap 2 and 3 YHC brought up a theme that has been preached at Church over the past few weeks on the Discipline of Dependence. This discipline goes against every way a man is hard wired. We don’t want to depend on anyone or anything. We all see ourselves as lone rangers who can survive by our will power if we just get up everyday and pull ourselves up by our boot straps. The good old man’s man mentality.
The reality is this. Even King David fell flat on his face and he had more power, authority, and resources then any of us will ever know. But when he confessed his sin he found himself in a right position before God. Dependant and humble before an awesome God who can forgive all our sins.
We must take a posture of humility and dependence before our God everyday so as to remind ourselves that we are not God. We must remember how he has delivered us by his might and his faithfulness to us is why any of us have had any success, victory, deliverance, or peace in our lives.
Psalm 32:4-6 New International Version (NIV)
4 For day and night
your hand was heavy on me;
my strength was sapped
as in the heat of summer.[a]
5 Then I acknowledged my sin to you
and did not cover up my iniquity.
I said, “I will confess
my transgressions to the Lord.”
And you forgave
the guilt of my sin.
6 Therefore let all the faithful pray to you
while you may be found;
surely the rising of the mighty waters
will not reach them.
Ephesians 3:20-21 New International Version (NIV)
20 Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, 21 to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.
