Pre-blast for Tuesday, March 24th Virtual Beatdow

QIC- Goob

5 Core Principles-

  1. held outside, rain or shine, heat or cold, humidity or running in clouds
  2. led in a rotating fashion by idiots like me
  3. free to all
  4. open to all men of all walks
  5. ends in a virtual circle of trust/prayer

Today’s message- I do not want to downplay the severity of what we are all facing; I also do not want to overblow it.  These are unprecedented times causing significant fear and irrational behavior (see toilet paper shortage).  Like many of you, I’ve taken the last 8+ days to slow down and enjoy all of the many blessings I’ve been given.  Not three weeks ago, my M and I were discussing the complete insanity of our lives- we were nearly out of control with overcrammed calendars and maniacal obligations.  And here’s the thing as many of you who know me know- I am great at saying no.  It’s actually a strength of mine.  Despite that, our life was borderline out of control.  No time to truly enjoy one another.  No time to enjoy the beautiful home God’s blessed us with.  No time to even enjoy something as simple as a family meal or a walk together.  My family has undoubtedly grown closer in the last 8+ days.  While I do not want Covid-19 to linger for much longer by any means, and I do miss our time in the gloom together, I am taking time to enjoy the present.  I am blessed to still be employed by a company that truly seems to care for its people.  I am blessed with an amazing M and 2 healthy children.  I am blessed to have been introduced to F3 nearly 18 months ago.  To sum this diatribe up, a Tauren Wells message hit home recently.  (Yes, to those of you wondering with all of his recent quotes I’ve thrown out there, I may have a man-crush on him; it’s cool.)  Anywho, Tauren says, “My awareness of His presence determines my access to Him.”  I encourage you all (and myself) to feel God’s presence through this season.  I have.  My family has.  And I promise to continue that trend.

**Now, to kick your sitting at home, cookie eating, butts.  Put your big girl pants on and buckle up.  Enjoy the “presents” bestowed upon you.

Disclaimer- modify as necessary because there will be sweat (and maybe tears from some of you)
