Word:

Give ear to my prayer, O God, and hide not yourself from my plea for mercy! Cast your burden on the Lord, and he will sustain you; he will never permit the righteous to be moved.  Psalm 55:1‭, ‬22 ESV

“Failure need never be final. Those words have often echoed in my mind. I have shared Peter’s immaturity, his misunderstanding, his lack of knowledge, his failure in courage. You have too. But these failures need never be final if Peter’s Savior is our Savior too.” Sinclair Ferguson

YHC took us out, Nice work, guys!

Last week, I stumbled upon Huck’s VQ from May 17, 2016. As I read through it, I decided to call the workout exactly as it was written in honor of my good friend who has been struggling recently. Love ya Huck!!!!

There were 10 at Huck’s VQ. We had 12 today. Medicine Woman is the only man who was present at both workouts. Was it was easier last time because it was before he jacked up his leg?

I consider Huck one of my best friends and I have F3 to thank for that. He isn’t the only one though – I consider all of you my friends and know Ibhave hundreds of men around Gaston County and beyond who have my back! It is such a great network of men who push and support each other. I appreciate all of you who came out this morning. This workout holds up pretty well after 6 years! I look forward to the day Huck has the Q and delivers this beatdown himself!
