Lent Faith and Fitness Challenge

on February 18, 2015

I have to admit the basis of this idea was not entirely mine.  A group I belong to on Facebook was discussing how we would be celebrating the season of Lent.  The idea of a passage a day was passed around and I told her I thought it was a wonderful idea and then “ran” with it 😉  Thus was born the idea of:

I picked Psalms and Proverbs (but if your more comfortable reading another part of the bible PLEASE do! Our goal is to get into His Word.)  I just felt like for those who might be pressed for time but want to participate, Psalms and Proverbs are both insightful, thought-provoking and a great resource to ponder over during your workout.

Read one verse per day, common I know you can 🙂 , and throughout your workout reflect upon what you have read.  I am sure your mind with wander to other things during your workout but try to refocus and bring your heart back to what you have read.  Believe me I know mine mind wanders all the time….oh look a kitten!
