As I continue to look forward to Easter I am continuing to work on my “Faith and Fitness” Challenge for Lent which I had announced on both my Instagram and Facebook pages. In case you missed the details here they are ….
The challenge: Pick a Psalm or Proverb* each day prior to your workout. Then use it as your spiritual reflection during your workout. Click here for a short video 🙂 ——–> IMG_7013
*obviously these are just suggestions, any verse special to you would be perfect! Its your time with God 🙂
Don’t worry about being perfect (we don’t judge here, that’s not my job) and I have to admit I have not been perfect in picking out my verse prior to each workout. But I am not giving up and am making the effort to put God first each day. I am even hoping that in these 40 days picking a verse will not only become a habit but a joy to me, making not only my workout, but my each day more meaningful.
Personally I have also found that writing out the verse I picked out helps me to memorize it. Also keeping it in front of my on the treadmill reminds me to focus back on it during my run.
Here was my verse for today. As I reflected on it I realized that there are no wrong paths when we follow God. If something doesn’t work out how we think it should its not a wrong road but rather a lesson God needed us to learn.
Have a great week!!!
