Physical Meets Spiritual Health

The Lord gave you the body you have to treat as a temple.  The Bible gives you so many motivational scriptures to keep you on track and keep you focused on your physical health paralleled with your spiritual strength.

We turn to God when we celebrate and when we struggle throughout life.  It might not cross our minds but He is there with us in the gym too, and every time we sit down to eat.  We can turn to God when we are in pain and struggling to finish our workout and He will help you through.  Take Him on your journey, through every battle you face.  When life knocks you down or you feel yourself leaning towards the wrong path, look to The Lord and He will humble you and give you the strength to get you back on your feet.

We have been given this amazing body to cherish and it's our responsibility to listen to The Lord's call to take care of ourselves.  Use your body as a vessel of praise and show God you are grateful for the body that He gave you.  This is an opportunity to bring yourself closer to The Lord and strengthen your faith along with your body.

Don't give up.  The Lord is with you, and He will give you strength and courage.  He did me.

Philippians 4:13
“I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength.”

Nothing is impossible with God!  Certainly we have to look at our human limits but don’t be afraid to set lofty goals.  Dedicate your workouts to Christ and see if that doesn’t make a difference.
