Conditions: Muggy 48 degrees
FNGs: Jamie McDaniel (Goober)
COP: SSH x 20, ‘Mericans x 10, TTT x 10, Squats x 20
The Thang: Additional warm up was necessary to emphasize teamwork and uniformity. Three teams of 4 were selected based on height and were to carry a long log for an undetermined distance but attempt to return in time. Squats (many of them), curls for the girls, Deadlifts, S2S press, Big boy sit ups, Cusack’s, and chest press were performed. Multiple passes were made in front of a “gym” to prove a point of who was actually putting in work.
Please accept my formal apology for dropping my phone back at the AO and subjecting the PAX to TKO’s rendition of Cusack Squats. Being the QIC that has yet to release a PAX in a timely fashion this was probably more my goal than a good workout. However, I am sad to say that my habit of trying to squeeze in one more exercise or one more word continues to keep men later than scheduled and they all showed there commitment to it all.

Devo: 2Kings 4:1-6
Vision is necessary to see the blessing you need. God asks what you want, not what happened. If he were to give you the margin you prayed for how would you use it for his glory? Write down your prayers, specifically so you know if God answer your prayers so you can look back and see that he was there the whole time.
Personal note regarding leadership: I always wanted to step into a leading role because I thought I could do it better but it wasn’t until I was humble and accepting of criticism did I get my chance. He never asked me to have experience or be a great orator but I know if it’s for his glory he will guide my words. I am told to take account of what I do have and with faith he will give an overflow as I continue to provide the opportunities for his glory to be seen.
