Perseverance – Persistence in doing something despite difficulty or delay in achieving success.

” Perseverance is a positive, active characteristic. It is not idly, passively waiting and hoping for some good thing to happen. It gives us hope by helping us realize that the righteous suffer no failure except in giving up and no longer trying. We must never give up, regardless of temptations, frustrations, disappointments, or discouragements” – Joseph P. Wirthlin

That Quote speaks to all who post never give up always finish strong regardless of the temptation to quit.

We finished with a failed attempt at partner squats and owing burpees lol.

Basketball Drill –

Each PAX picks a corner while One pax will be shooting foul shots and getting their own rebounds while others are at a corner doing a specific exercise. 

1- American Hammers 

2-Squats 

3- High Plank 

4- Mountain climbers 

Once 3 foul shots are made , everyone switches to next station.  If you take too long to make shots- you can bear crawl the length of the basketball court…..

We got in 2 full rotations. 


3rd F- No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it.’ Hebrews 12:11 
Disciplines of Fitness.  Faith.  Fellowship. 

Fitness– self explanatory. Stay steady. We all have seen, felt and experienced the results of discipline in this area by being consistent with F3. And for those who haven’t… you can Start now.

Faith– it isn’t always easy to believe in the unseen Or even what’s been promised.   But when focused enough it can be seen. Choose daily to see the good through the even roughest times. 

Fellowship– this can be ever challenging with schedules, commitments , priorities , families, work, etc.   but staying disciplined to healthy fellowship with men who empower and sharpen each other will in turn keep you sharper and allow you to add value to all those around you.  By committing to stay disciplined in this area- you may open yourself to vulnerability. But it your peaks and valleys of life this proper fellowship will be what helps navigate us through.  

Mosey across park to stairs. 


‘Stair Drill’

Pair up.  

One man stays down and does burpees while partner runs up steps. Does 10 merkins and 20 LBCs then run down stairs and switch. Continue until your team has done 60 burpees. 


Mosey back to basketball court. 

For a quick basketball game that involved more foul shots, lay ups and burpees.  


Toy soldier set. 

That’s a wrap..

Proverbs 18:10 The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous run into it and are safe.

Isaiah 41:10 So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

Exodus 15:2 The Lord is my strength and my song; he has given me victory. This is my God, and I will praise him—  my father’s God, and I will exalt him!

Break for Third F: “Catch People on the Bounce”

QIC is currently reading “Everybody Always” by Bob Goff. The book challenges us all to love, literally everyone, regardless of their difficulty or what they’ve done or are currently going through.” A particular excerpt spoke deeply to me last night and I decided to share with the group. I believe that F3 is the perfect brotherhood to catch one another on the bounce…If you don’t know what I mean, read below:

“There’s one last thing the instructor told us in class. He said if the main parachute doesn’t open up, and the reserve parachute doesn’t either, you’ve got about 45 seconds before you hit the ground and make your mark. I was  surprised and a little grossed out when the instructor said hitting the  ground isn’t want kills you. Every bone in your body will break, of course.  But after you hit the ground,  you’ll bounce – and it’s the second time you  hit that kills you as the broken bones puncture all your organs I know that is kind of graphic, but it’s true. 

I’m a lawyer, so with this information in mind I figured I needed a strategy. Here’s mine: if none of the parachutes open up, when I hit the ground, I’m going to brag the grass and avoid the bounce. What is true in skydiving is true in our lives. It’s usually not the initial failure that takes us out; it’s the bounce. We’ve all hit the ground hard at work or in a relationship or with a big ambition. Whether we had a big, public failure or an even bigger private one, the initial failure won’t crush our spirit or kill our faith; it’s the second hit that does. The second hit is what follows when things go massively wrong or we fail big, and the people we thought would rush to us create distance instead. The express disapproval or teat us with polite indifference

If we want to be like Jesus, here’s our simple and courageous job: Catch people on the bounce. When they mess up, reach out to them with love and acceptance the way Jesus did. When they hit hard, run to them with your arms wide open to hug them even harder. God wants to be with them when they mess up, and He wants us to participate.”

“Everybody Always” -Bob Goff

F3 Message

Q spoke about waiting on the Lord and sometimes that requires that we be still and rein things in a bit. In regards to the beat-down, we completed one evolution of the Holy Hill Thang, but concentrated on quality of the exercises and not the quantity. Of course the crawl bears up the hill caused “Holy Hill” to erupt from the participating PAX…:)…

Q went on to paraphrase and quote a segment on how to exercise your faith and three ways to build your spiritual muscles as written by wife and mother Elana Anthony who holds a certification as a group fitness instructor among many other academic achievements. Ms. Anthony states the first way to build spiritual muscles is to Wait on God. In other words, be still and allow God to work. Be patient and wait on God’s perfect timing. Please read excerpts below from he 2014 posting.

Exercise your faith: 3 ways to build spiritual muscles–Part 1

By Elana Anthony, June 9, 2014 at 10:58 am

“1. Wait on God. It may be hard. It may seem as if nothing is happening. And every part of your flesh wants to DO SOMETHING, because we don’t equate waiting with doing, and yet, that is exactly what we should do, for waiting is an exercise that builds our spiritual muscles. Waiting gives us strength. A popular Scripture that teaches us this can be found in Isaiah 40: 31 which says, “But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.”

“2. Draw your strength from God and not on your own self-reliance. Don’t take matters in your own hands. Usually while waiting, we get frustrated and antsy, and again, want to DO SOMETHING. In times like these, don’t rely on your strength. Ephesians 6: 10 tells us to “…be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power.” It’s His strength that sustains, not our own. Now this doesn’t mean that there aren’t positive things we can do to keep ourselves busy so as to not go crazy during periods of silence. What was the other exercise I did to build my spiritual muscles and make it through the wilderness? I saturated my mind with the Word of God. I focused exclusively on His promises. This leads me to my last point to exercise your faith.”

“3. Focus exclusively on God. Not the doctor’s report. Not the Dow Jones. Not the news. Not the latest business reports. Not career updates. Not the latest on the economic rise or plunge. Not on the health prognosis. And especially not on the blessings of others. To exercise your faith and build spiritual muscles, you must “fix your eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith” (Heb 12: 2).

“So if we’re waiting, we are gaining power.”

“When we’re reliant on God, then we are strengthened by His power.”

“And if we are focused exclusively on Him, our faith is being made perfect. We are becoming like Paul. God is teaching us contentment so that we can be happy and assured no matter what happens. Whether we have a job or not, we can be content. No matter what the doctor reports finding, we can know that we are covered by the blood of Jesus and healed by His stripes. No matter if we have a steady income or periods of drought, we can know with complete assurance that the Lord is a provider and is right there with us. We are not alone”.

“Exercise your faith. Build your spiritual muscles. And be blessed!”

Respectfully Submitted,

Fireplex
