Exercise, Exercise, Exercise—-Whew!

Up at 5:30am and off to the gym are words often penned into our calendars.  We have become informed as a society about the merits of physical fitness in our world where physical labor may not be required. “Mental exercising” makes our minds stronger in the same way that resistance training with weights can make our muscles stronger. The words of William G.T. Shedd point out, “A ship is safe in harbor, but that’s not what ships are for.”  What does the Lord expect of me with respect to my challenges? He expects me to do all I can do. Even though I don’t ask for storms in my life I know they will make me stronger.  That is my purpose in life–to become all that I can be. Just as well-designed ships can navigate strong storms, I can also vanquish the adversary’s attacks as I prepare physically, mentally, and spiritually.  I promise never to shrink from the “exercises” that God designed to strengthen me.  Mary Radmacher said, “Courage doesn’t always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, I will try again tomorrow.”

    I especially like this last quote! There is something important about making our offering at the end of the day and allowing ourselves to feel the peace and acceptance that comes from The Lord.
