NMM: Today’s Q was a combo of the BV classic Weight v Wait and the words of Proverbs 27:17 …

I’ve been a huge fan for a while now of pairing up or partnering the F3/413 PAX and today proved no different. Having been DR last week and missed out on the PFT admin’s by Red Skull YHC had to dig deep into the Pain Cave for this Q. The idea that we have a physical weight (the block) and a mental weight (why you’re an F3er/413er) hit home from the beginning today. I ripped that Weight v Wait concept from Rob Jones; a double above knee amputee who served as an IED searcher in the Marines. Hoping that Red Skull can expand upon this during the week of Bible study.

(YHC was struggling w the 413 names hence the other names in parenthesis.)

Weight v Wait Q

We all carry a weight, sometimes its visible like our coupons the 413ers carried. Sometimes its not visible like the dark things we don’t want exposed. Point is, we all have it and we all have others that are here for us to help shoulder that burden. We also wait on what is to come, that which is expected but not seen. We have a faith in something bigger than ourselves that sustains us.

The 413ers have both a Weight and to Wait for the next chapter to unfold. It is our duty as HIM to walk alongside and encourage them.

I was reading Deuteronomy 1:30-31 this am and it reminded me of the waiting we all have to do. The Israelites were waiting on the Promised Land and Moses was reminding them of how God fought for them in Egypt and picked them up as a father does with his child. It just seemed to fit with this am Q.
