MEMORIAL DAY 2017

AS WE APPROACH THIS WORKOUT WE THINK SOLELY ON HOW BAD IT WILL “SUCK” FOR US TO COMPLETE ETC. AND SOMETIMES WE FORGET WHY WE ARE ACTUALLY DOING IT. WE DO THIS WOD FOR OUR GRATIFICATON VS. THE HONOR OF SACRIFICE. SO EVEN THOUGH WE DREAD IT FROM A PHYSICAL PERSPECTIVE THE GOAL IS TO FINISH AND HONOR THE SACRIFICES THAT HAVE BEEN MADE. OUR SOLDIERS PLAY AN IMPORTANT PART IN OUR DAY TO DAY LIVES AND OUR FREEDOMS WE TAKE FOR GRANTED. BUT THE ULTIMATE SACRIFICE WAS WHEN JESUS CHRIST DIED FOR YOU AND I. WE ALL KNOW THE STORY BUT IF YOU LOOK AT IT FROM YOUR OWN PERSPECTIVE IT’S SO HUMBLING. IF I WERE IN A SCENARIO WHERE I HAD TO CHOOSE YOU OR BRADY I WOULD ALWAYS CHOOSE BRADY. I COULD SAY I WOULD CHOOSE YOU BUT IN REALITY WE ALL KNOW WHAT WE WOULD DO. SO THE THOUGHT THAT OUR GOD SACRIFICED HIS ONLY SON SO THAT WE HAVE A CHANCE TO HAVE AN ABUNDANT LIFE BLOWS MY MIND. “HONOR THE BODY YOU WERE GIVEN” IS ON OUR SHIRTS, BUT WHEN WE STRIVE TO DO THAT DAILY IT’S A GAME CHANGER. LOOK AT THE WORDS, “WERE GIVEN”, GIVEN MEANING YOU DID ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO DESERVE IT. OUR DAY TO DAY JOBS ARE TO WORK HARD, ALLOW OUR LIVES TO BE A WITNESS, STAY HUMBLE, STAY GRATEFUL AND TO REPAY THAT SWEET SWEET GIFT. SO AS WE APPROACH THIS WORKOUT YES IT WILL BE HARD AND WE WILL WANT TO QUIT BUT REMEMBER THE SACRIFICE.
