The Lord is growing me in a way I have never known was possible! I wanted to write a quick blog to encourage my brothers and sisters with a truth that helped me in my walk with Jesus Christ.
UPDATE: Jesus is revealing Himself through my brothers and sisters’ very practical love. The body of Christ has never meant more to me than it does right now. His love is expressed through His body on this earth, and that is you and I!
Every day I am getting healthier than the day before, both physically and spiritually. And most importantly, I am knowing Him more and more daily.
Naturally, as my spiritual health is elevated, my physical health cannot help but follow. I’ve recently started working out and paying a lot more attention to my fitness. I know I have many brothers and sisters in Gainesville, Jacksonville, and all across the world who are pursuing the Lord in spirit and also keeping physically fit.
I want to encourage all of you with a physical truth I learned with very practical spiritual application:
A trainer at my gym said it is beneficial to change workout schedules and routines. Change makes your body adapt and overcome variations in routines, and this makes you stronger.
I was thankful for his help, because this great truth had deep spiritual implications.
I encourage you to welcome change in your life!
Change forces you out of dormancy. Life has many seasons, including periods of inactivity. But the beauty of life is that it is constantly changing around us. Do not be afraid to embrace change.
The ebb and flow of life can lull you to sleep, but change is good for disrupting a boring life.
Change encourages self-evaluation. Some growth in life can measured, and some cannot. When change takes place, it is important to take note of your growth. It is encouraging to see weight increase on the barbell or your mile time to decrease! Take note of progress and push forward.
Change is necessary for growth. Without change, a routine will plateau. A plateau is when an activity experiences little or no growth. Changing a routine will help beat a plateau and continue growth!
Brothers and sisters in Christ, I love you and encourage to welcome change into your physical and spiritual lives!
