3rd F disclaimer: F3 does not prescribe to or endorse any particular faith, we just ask that you respect the beliefs of the Q.  Today I’ll be leading as a Christian.
It’s more than just a workout.  Everyday at 3,006 locations across the United States, groups of men come together, with one goal in mind.  Improvement.  The improvement that happens is more than running faster, or doing more squats, or more push-ups.  Posting every week creates a healthier lifestyle, that impacts all three phases.  As high impact men, we show up, we grind, we push, and our physical fitness improves.  We see the tangible results.  What we sometimes tend to forget, is there are two more F’s, and those two F’s carry equal importance.  In my journey of faith, things in three’s tend to signify absolution.  From the holy trinity, Noah’s three sons, and Jesus’ resurrection on the third day, the three in all things we do, including F3 matter.  Balance in the three, Fitness, Fellowship, and Faith leads to all around improved growth in all three.  And maybe the growth doesn’t happen the way we want it to where we want it to and when, particularly in fitness.  That’s where I’ll always repeat Inky Johnson’s words to be committed to the process without being emotionally invested in the results.   When the results don’t turn out how we want it to, that’s where we lean on the fellowship, and lean on our faith, and as high impact men, when we do that, we see the true fruits of our labors in our fitness, our fellowship, and our faith.
Let’s take a knee:
Dear Heavenly father we come to you today thankful for your guidance in our hearts as we continue to serve you and do our best to follow your commandments.  Lord we strive everyday through your word to become the best husbands, fathers, brothers, and friends that we can be for everyone in our lives, believing that iron truly does sharpen iron.  We ask that you keep all the injured PAX and those discouraged from coming in your prayers and that you touch their hearts in a way that they understand that they belong with us, as we are all stronger as one serving you Lord. Please keep Soul Surfer in your prayers and help him understand his presence is welcomed and celebrated at F3, Soul Glo’s parents as they travel home from Belize, Underoos and his M as they go to the genetic counselor for next steps in IVF, Three’s company and his M as she goes back to work and their family dynamic evolves, and those this Advent and Christmas season who are struggling with anxiety, mental health, as well as old family wounds and that you turn all of our hearts around, hold us with your mercy and change us with your love as we say: Our Father, who heart in Heaven, hallowed be thy name, thy Kingdom Come, Thy Will be Done, on Earth as it is in Heaven, Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil, for thine is the kingdom, the power, and the glory forever, Amen.
It was an honor today gentlemen and to paraphrase Joey Freshwater: “To get fitter not smarter.”
SYITG, Commodore OUT
