Circle of Trust:
• The Plague: 7/21/18, started 2 AOs, 1 QSource, Q 100+ beatdowns, over 100,000 Burpees.
• Honesty, open-mindedness, willingness – these principles help me allow the men of F3 to get me back in my boat and move me out of sad clown syndrome toward virtuous leadership and acceleration.
• The harvest is here – right in front of us.
• What you call a problem, heaven calls a harvest.We tend to want wait for everything in our life to be right as a condition to feeling blessed. To have joy, to give back, the help others. The harvest is here. The harvest is the words that you use to comfort others. The harvest on the horizon looks (at first) like an array of problems. And it is hard work and does not always come easy.
• If we only look at problems, we do not understand the purpose behind the problem. All that stuff that is coming to you this week – it coming to you looking like a problem.
• What if God is using the hardest things in your life right now to do in your heart what you have been asking God to do all along. This is the definition of a harvest. Do you see this?
• The Pit: 7/21/19
• How long are you going to keep coming here and just consume? • Aren’t you ready to reap something – to see what God can do through you?
• Here is the application: For all of us that have been so focused on what we are not getting, that we don’t have yet, the harvest is here.
• Gunner: “A lot of us surround ourselves with people who speak to the desires of our comfort, who would rather treat the pain of our wounds and prevent further injury rather than help us callous over them and try again. We need to surround ourselves with people who will tell us what we need to hear not what we want to hear, but at the same time not make us feel like we’re up against the impossible.” David Goggins
• Gunner is a true HIM, always encouraging others and accelerating those around him. When I asked him to take over the pit he didn’t hesitate, he just said “I’d be honored, when do I start?”

Thank you for letting me serve!
