TRAPP – 12.16.21

20 HIMs entered the Gloom at the TRAPP this morning for a brand new routine that included 8's, grass, and donuts. Ok no donuts. But I also never promised them!

The Thang
Partnered up and the PAX headed across the field and up the gravel road, turning left to ascend up the steep south face of Sunrise Hill.
Once at the top, QiC led the PAX down the north face of Sunrise Hill, with a sharp left turn at the bottom, taking a previously neglected and brand-new route to circle back and return to the top of Sunrise Hill.
When the PAX had returned to the top of Sunrise, QiC explained the new routine for the morning, an AMRAP of partners running a route resembling a figure 8, going down one face of Sunrise, separately running around different sides of the base, and back up the other face. If one partner returned to the flag first, perform exercise of choice until other partner had completed their loop. Once each partner had completed the loop on each side, partners reversed directions and kept repeating the pattern until time.
Some hills were climbed and some thorns were jabbed into bodies, but no ankles were turned and no lives lost. PAX met at the top of Sunrise Hill for COT and we all descended to the parking lot afterward.

Moleskin
QiC pulled some tall grass from the side of the trail and handed each man a piece of grass to hold while listening to the Moleskin.
I was listening to the Bible App in the car the other day, as I often do. (I highly recommend listening to God's Word during times when you can't read. It helps fill your mind with God's truth. Plus it helps reinforce your learning when you HEAR the Word and then READ the Word.)
In listening to Psalm 106, the narrator emphasized a verse that really made it stand out to me. I'll emphasize here in the text:
“They exchanged their glorious God for an image of a bull, which eats grass. (The way he said it stood out like, “how foolish”. If you have the Bible app, give it a listen). They forgot the God who saved them, who had done great things in Egypt, miracles in the land of Ham and awesome deeds by the Red Sea. So he said he would destroy them – had not Moses, his chosen one, stood in the breach before him to keep his wrath from destroying them.” Psalm 106:20-23
This passage reminded me of one of my favorite chapters in the entire Bible – Deuteronomy 8, entitled “Do Not Forget the Lord.” I gave the PAX homework to read Deuteronomy 8. If you were there or not, read it! It's a powerful chapter with the example of how the Israelites forgot God, despite all of His past and current faithfulness.
Yet, in ways we can all be similar in forgetting God's faithfulness. I encouraged the PAX to examine their hearts and lives to identify any subtle ways in which they may be “eating (holding) grass” – that is, exchanging their glorious God for something worldly – and surrendering it. I encouraged the PAX to let go of the grass and remember God's faithfulness – and in doing so, allow that to impact the way we live faithfully to God.
It was a wonderful morning at the TRAPP with all of you HIMs! We all pushed ourselves and got stronger in the 3 F's. Grateful and humbled to lead you.
 SYITG, Pancreas
