Most of our obstacles in life are mental. We have to overcome fears and anxieties. Many people are hesitant to do a box jump. The box looks so high and we are not sure of our proprioception. Most of what we do in CrossFit is breaking past those mental barriers, of I can’t. Many people surpassed the height they thought they could. So how do we know when we should go out on a limb or hug the trunk? God tells us to fear nothing but Him. If we hold fast to His word, he will guide our path.
For great is the Lord and most worthy of praise; he is to be feared above all gods. For all the gods of the nations are idols, but the Lord made the heavens.
1 Chronicles 16:25-26
