A Word from Joel Osteen.
Did you know that getting yourself in better physical condition can actually make it easier for you to mover closer to God? It's true! When you're at your peak physical condition, you are more prepared to experience God in a very personal way. God promises that He will draw close to you when you draw closer to Him - which leads us to ask the question: How can we draw closer to God? You can accomplish this by doing your part to communicate to God and giving your heart to Him. This can be as simple as reading your Bible, praying or even choosing to live a healthy lifestyle. The closer you become to God, the more you will experience His love and blessings.
A Prayer for Today
God, thank You for drawing close to me even when I don't draw close to you. Give me the strength to serve You and walk closer to You this day. In Jesus' Name. Amen
Thanks so much for sending this to me Elizabeth...it brought back a memory.
I will never forget completing my Body for LIFE challenge in 2002. After I mailed the packet to EAS I remember walking back to work jumping up and down yelling "I DID IT".
What was even more amazing to me was the fact that I started craving to be more spiritually fit. I wanted to get my spirit as healthy as my physical body...which in turn gave me this huge desire to help others. My eyes were clear and my heart was open to help anyone that wanted it.
I feel closer to God than ever before in my life. I now use my exercise knowledge to help others achieve their goals, and every time I give of myself, I know I have found my true passion in life.
"Can you imagine living one complete day without thinking about yourself? Nothing offending you, nothing disturbing you, nothing causing you to be angry? Would you then be able to help others? ~Dr. Wayne Dyer
New week, new goals!!
