Hey friends, how are you today? Physically, how are you doing? Take stock, this body matters to the Lord. How are you doing, spiritually? To some extent, we have more control over our spiritual health than we do over our physical health. We can exercise and watch our food intake, we can take our supplements and try to keep our stress and anxiety levels down, but at the end of the day, the Lord decides this body’s fate. But now spiritually, what we do counts for something. When we develop and nurture our relationship with the Lord, growth and maturity takes place. When we intentionally spend time with the Lord, in His Word and through prayer (step 1) and then proceed to obey what we’ve been told in His Word, (step 2) then wellness and fruitfulness take place. How are you doing?
This week, the weather did not cooperate with me. If our temperatures went above 40°, then it rained and if the sun came out to play, then that day was cold. For example, today is a bright, beautiful, sunny day but at this time, it’s only 21°. In my neck of the woods, people run in any kind of weather, but since I’m from the Caribbean, my mind informed my body that this activity, performed outside, during this temperature is absolute madness and may even incur brain freeze. So, the answer to ‘did I run this week‘, would be a ‘no’ for me. What form of exercise do you enjoy?
This life matters of the Lord, in fact, this life matters to us too. Everything we do, the actions and behaviors that gradually become us, our thoughts and attitudes that shape the actions and behaviors, they all tell a story of our knowledge and relationship with the Lord or lack of it. Our words, our actions, our circumstances, the Lord uses it all to encourage and draw us to Himself. He molds us and shapes us using our actions, behaviors, circumstances and environment. In other words, He uses our everyday to tell us of Himself.
