864 STRENGTH + CONDITIONING – Gunny’s Blog / Tuesday 05.04.2021

864 Strength + Conditioning – Constantly Varied. NO Routines. NO Ruts. Don’t be Boring.

Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer.
-Romans 12:12

 I see no hope for a revival among God’s people today. They are so enamored and so cluttered up with Hollywood and newspapers and magazines and parties and bowling alleys and camping trips and everything else. How in the world are they going to get still long enough to see anything from God?
-Lester Roloff

The happiest people don’t have the best of everything, they just make the best of everything. Thankful. Grateful. Blessed.
