PAX were instructed to line up along the wall of the basketball court, and get a battle buddy. PAX were informed there were cards with exercises face down at the other end of the basketball court. In front of the PAX were various coupons YHC brought from his house to include a bucket with 60 lbs of sand without a handle, a 45 lb rubber weight plate, a keg, two kettlebells (uneven weights) and a block. Starting at the left, one PAX bear crawled to the card pile while the rest of the PAX held wall squats. PAX would return with card and 1/2 of the team carried coupons of their choice around tennis court while the other 1/2 of the team completed exercise on card.
Rinse and repeat until time was called.

YHC talked about importance of Men’s Hike and impact it made of his relationship with God. YHC stated devotionals could be about hike until the fall hike! Very powerful stuff and YHC highly recommends taking that leap to get closer to your heavenly father!
2Corinthians 12:9-10 But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
It is hard to believe that last sentence as men. It is hard for us to lean in on God when we are feeling weak. Hard to admit our weaknesses, our sore spots. But we have a great God we serve, and we need to believe that whether it’s physical or spiritual, when we are weak is when we can grow with Him.
Thank you Ophelia and Used to for additions and better wisdom for this devo! YHC loves bringing the devo to the Ditch because there is always great additions and insight and for that I thank you all!
