JT: ANSWER // and you?


BB: answer


  1. Bob – POINT: The point is we all have had to rehab something in life --- from physical injuries to life setbacks… maybe the best advice I heard was from and MLB player who said his best rehab was actually prehab… which is something that Jesus did for his disciples and us…


John 16:33 (ESV) — 33 I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.”

Let’s go over again how we can prehab spiritually the setbacks of life for which we’ll need to rehab once things happen… How does that work?

  1. Bob

Take in God’s word … and take the warnings as well as the comfort in before things are needed…


Romans 5:3–5 (ESV) — 3 Not only that, but we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, 4 and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, 5 and hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.

Romans 8:35–37 (ESV) — 35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword? 36 As it is written, “For your sake we are being killed all the day long; we are regarded as sheep to be slaughtered.” 37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.

Taking in the comfort of God’s word …. Before you feel you need it will help you have it on ready when it is needed….


Just like praying …. Some people pray when times are tough but not when times are good… in order to prehab you develop a prayer life before you are desperately in need… then when tough times come you know where to go… and  you are not blown over by the events of life so much.


From Prehab To Rehab



  1. JT – Question Two… “FROM THE MENTAL ASPECT” –


How does developing or following God’s strategy of PREHAB help us keep our focus for REHAB?


  1. Bob

First it keeps your focus upon God… as you turn to His word and to Him in prayer --- your focus is all about Him … so when an event or events happen … you are in touch for the comfort, strength, and encouragement… to say nothing of guidance

Secondly, when you are working on prehab --- you will be growing – hence you’ll be stronger to face hard circumstances….

  1. (JT) Third Question …. Turning to the physical aspect of life….


Let’s talk about cycling and some very important tips for those who are either taking up the sport or getting ready for a new season…


  1. BB & JT discuss ---


  1. Work on the fundamentals – moderate speed – working on bike handling – or adding some basic intervals as you add time on the saddle
  2. Like training for any sport – it takes patience and time to build strength and speed – Don’t blow it.
  3. Listen to your body – don’t try to train like others.. know when to say NO
  4. Do something – you can’t make gains by just sitting around
  5. When it doubt – make it an easy recovery ride… it’s OK


Bob’s final comment – It takes discipline ….


Point: DISCIPLINE MAKES THE DIFFERENCE --- in all aspects of life
