Friday 8.20.10

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. 

There are many times in life we see an obstacle in front of us and think, “How will I ever overcome all this?”.  By faith in God we can overcome.  For some encouraging examples of faith, read Hebrews, chapter 11.

“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”  Hebrews 11:1

  1. I love that verse. I think that anyone serious in the Lord and serious about working out can relate to it. Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Like with Crossfit, we have faith that we are going to persevere through these rigorous workouts and the evidence not seen is the great outcome of our continued perseverance. Faith in the Lord is very similar. I have faith in the substance of the Word and will continue to strive to be closer to God and all this is without seeing the miracles and outcome that awaits those who love the Lord.
