Isaiah 41:10 – So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

  • A few things to leave you with:
  • Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in America.
  • 22 veterans commit suicide EVERY DAY.
  • I hope you’ll have some time to share among the Pax your mental battles or those of people around you, either during the workout or after.  This is honestly more important than the workout.
  • Again, please reach out for help if you need help.
  • If you or someone you know needs immediate help, please reach out to 800-273-8255.
