Man time flies…those three little words are so true. Especially when you are involved with things you love. This morning I got the opportunity to sit down with an old friend. I find it so awesome how the Lord brings people back into your life.
In our discussion on catching up, we havent seen each other in 10 years, I had the opportunity to reflect on what has happened over the last few years. Needless to say, I was almost brought to tears walking down memory lane.
The shoes I wear today, have been solely (no pun intended) provided by Jesus Christ and the cross He died on. There is so much of me that wants to take credit for what I have been through but I can’t. Looking back at the times I have tried to take credit it has all been a shambles.
Humility can’t describe the feeling i have when I realize the charge that has been placed on my business. It’s not to just train people, teach CrossFit and go home, it’s to impact lives through training people, through CrossFit, through sports training, through (insert whatever).
I never thought in my wildest dreams, I would be where I am today. The number of people I get to love on daily is unreal. God has been more than faithful (Lamentations 3:23) in His promise to us. Lindsey and I felt the Lord had directed us to pursue opening CrossFit Flower Mound, but were very unsure for many different reasons. On His timing (Acts 1:7) our second CrossFit gym opened and it has been a true blessing. Notice I didn’t say easy, because easy doesn’t exist in my vocabulary nor is easy ever a promise from God.
Through this blessing (CFFM) our staff is excited about the expanded opportunities to love on people through CrossFit, paleo and community. Not once will we proclaim ourselves perfect, sinless and blemish free, except in the eyes of God (Isaiah 1:18). However we claim to put our FULL trust in Christ Jesus’ and His cross and believe that we are “dead to sin and alive in Christ Jesus” (Romans 6:11) thus making our lives more joyful than we could ever imagine.
