Free & Fit Challenge - Where does your strength come from - February 2019 - Q&A with F&F Founder Tim Cheux
What is the Free & Fit Curriculum 2018?
As a team of writers on the Free & Fit curriculum for 2018 we discussed, in principle, that we would write a one page document, blog and explanation of each of our topics for a twelve part series to look at the nine Fruit of the Spirit in Galatians 5:22-23 and the three elements of Joshua 1:9 being Bold, Strong and Courageous.
How do you communicate with each other throughout the year?
We rely purely upon our open accountability between each other. No regulated rule or instruction, we just communicate throughout the year and present ourselves to the Lord in pursuit of being Holy and Blameless. Unfortunately, this doesn't always work and we end up putting together our thoughts and perspectives over a year later!
We have had members of our group step down recently to pursue other areas and that is great as it allows us to work with other new people to join us and for our old friends to pursue new and exciting opportunities.
Where does your strength come from?
In all seriousness, our strength comes from the Lord. We are all different and made
uniquely in Gods image and today I hope we can share some of those stories through testimony and answering your questions. These verses help me personally during testing and trying times
Psalm 121: 1-2 I look up to the mountains; does my strength come from mountains? No, my strength comes from God, who made heaven, and earth, and mountains.
No matter what my situation or circumstance might be I need to stare it long and hard in the face.....Then.....retreat.....turn to the Lord and then come back some time later and, only with his help, overcome it!
What then does strength look like in the Free & Fit Curriculum?
In more detail our Free & Fit Challenge 2018 looks like this:
Fruit of the Spirit Galatians 5:22-23 Love (Greek: agape, Latin: caritas) Joy (Greek: chara, Latin: gaudium) Peace (Greek: eirene, Latin: pax) Patience (Greek: makrothumia, Latin: longanimitas) Kindness (Greek: chrestotes, Latin: benignitas) Goodness (Greek: agathosune, Latin: bonitas) Faithfulness (Greek: pistis, Latin: fides) Gentleness (Greek: prautes, Latin: modestia) Self-control (Greek: egkrateia, Latin:continentia Joshua 1:9
Bold (Greek: Tolmiros, Latin: Audax) Strong (Greek: Ischyros, Latin: Fortis) Courageous (Greek: Tharrelous, Latin: Animo)
Strength is only made possible through trial, testimony and experience; wrestling with life's battles and relying upon God. I wish I could say something more profound or supportive, but that is literally it. Trust and rely solely upon him and he will add everything unto you as well!
