So, how many of you accepted the challenge yesterday? I would love to know!
Today's challenge is something I've been encouraging you to do for over a year now. TODAY, we will move our bodies for 30 minutes. Can you hear the coach coming out in me? Sister, I am right here cheering you on!🎉
I love the Book of Ephesians and love digging into the commentaries written that help make sense of scripture. One viewpoint I adopted a while back (after studying the Armor of God) was that I need to train my body like an athlete to withstand the spiritual battles ahead. ⚔
I think of it almost as a Navy Seal. If I want to be the best warrior on the battlefield, I have to be in the best shape physically, mentally, emotionally, and of course, spiritually. Over the years, I've found that I'm sluggish, tired, and even grumpy when I don't work out. But, when I exercise and move my body, I feel great. More energy. Stronger. Healthier and just overall a better person to be around. 😁
What if we think of taking care of ourselves on every level as preparing for battle. No doubt, battles are ahead. I believe God wants us to be our best when we war with the enemy.
I read this by Vurbl Gerbil recently and loved it.
"Therefore, take up the full armor of God, so that you will be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm." Ephesians 6:13
"God wants us to prepare for battle against the forces of evil. We do this through salvation, prayer, studying the Bible, and being virtuous. As athletes, we too must prepare. We must train our bodies, our minds, and our hearts for the battle ahead."
I hope getting into a warrior mindset inspires you to move your body for 30 minutes today. Go for a walk, ride a bike, put on 80's music, and dance. Get your sweat on, girl.
Whatever you can do, please do it! 💃💪🚴
