10 Pax got better this morning in a Chuckwagon Challenge (3 for SL). The numbers were weak but the work and effort were not! QIC got his inspiration for today’s workout from participating in the Ryan Rawl Challenge on July 4th with HBB. We partnered up, pushed each other, got stronger and had fun doing it. Thanks to the Pax that came out this morning!
Conditions: 73 and muggy with a soggy ground from the night’s storm

Today’s Q was a partner workout. Each partner encouraged and pushed one another through the workout. We all need a workout partner to push us and hold us accountable from time to time. The same is true in our daily lives. I wanted to encourage each Pax to find someone they know, trust and respect to be an accountability partner with our walk with the Lord, struggles with sin, how we treat our M’s, how we parent our 2.0’s and just in everyday life. God didn’t create us to do life on our own – he wired us to have community and to do it together. Obviously most of us have our M’s but having a dude hold us accountable and be able to speak truth into our lives is super important. It has helped me personally as I try and navigate life and my relationship with God.
“Sin demands to have a man by himself. It withdraws him from the community. The more isolated a person is, the more destructive will be the power of sin over him, and the more deeply he becomes involved in it, the more disastrous is his isolation” – Dietrich Bonhoeffer
“And let us be concerned about one another in order to promote love and good works, not staying away from our worship meetings, as some habitually do, but encouraging each other, and all the more as you see the day drawing near.” Hebrews 10:24-25
