Friends and family, the time for half-measured health is over. If you’re fighting your bodyweight, blood pressure or other health issues, you’re not alone in the fire. With God, it’s possible, and we’re praying for you and applauding your heart to serve. If you’re not fighting but should be, it’s time to jump. Health takes sacrifice. Health takes guts. And in this day and age, it takes those who are willing to set themselves apart from the crowd. The phrase “God looks at the heart” can no longer be used as an excuse to abuse the body. But there is no tomorrow. If it’s right to jump, it’s right to jump today. Let the onlookers watch in amazement at just how serious you are.

Here are some ways to jump in the fire:
Turn off the TV, computer and phone and take a walk outside with your family.
Get up 10 minutes earlier each day to do bodyweight exercises in your living room.
Push away from the table just a few minutes early.

But these are merely suggestions. We have to decide what we’ll sacrifice, what we’re willing to change in order to be better stewards of the physical gifts we’ve been given. And since God looks at the heart, that’s probably the first place we need to start.

On this day, God wants YOU to know...

Wednesday, March 16, 2011

Today is going to be a GREAT day! Don't start your day with a negative attitude. It's hard to understand why so many people wake up each morning feeling defeated when each day holds SO MUCH potential. The possibilities that today offers are endless, so eagerly anticipate wonderful happenings. It's easy to let blessings go by unnoticed if you're not looking.

Happy New Year Sparks People! 2 Corinthians 5

2 Corinthians 5

“Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old is gone, the new is here.” –2 Corinthians 5: 17

The confetti is all but cleaned up, the streamers are in the trash, and the calendar is brand new. Deep breath…ah, so this is 2011! But it doesn’t take long for things to feel normal again does it? For some reason, the commute this morning is still bumper to bumper, co-workers are still grumpy, and junk food made its way to your lunch box. Seems last year’s ho-hums and habits still cast their shadows.

Truth is, a new year is only new if we make it that way. For you and me, a change in year only matters when it changes in here (this is me pointing to my heart). So starting today, no matter what seems old, let’s find a way to make it new. That commute? Try seeing it as an extended quiet time with the Lord. Those co-workers? Be the only one in the office unwilling to gossip. And at lunch, be the first to push away from the table as a way to praise the Lord for health. Slowly but surely, we’ll realize the difference is in us. Seems those weren’t shadows after all.

Read: Matthew 6

“Be careful not to practice your righteousness in front of others to be seen by them. If you do, you will have no reward from your Father in heaven.” –Matthew 6:1

We’ve been talking a lot lately about the importance of our physical health as a means of praise, and if that has reached your heart, we’re so blessed. If the mere prospect of a new day is reason enough to praise God with smarter choices at the dinner table, then great. Because you’re right…it’s not about the body.

With that said, perhaps the challenge is to be healthy, quietly. In truth, if our health is praise, there’s no need for a declaration of independence from a sedentary lifestyle, and no need to sound the alarm against a less-than-stellar diet. No speeches, no “look at what I’m doing for God” announcements. We’re called to take care of the body that carries the soul, period. So let’s allow the byproducts of our obedience do the talking.

Push away from the table sooner, quietly.
Turn the TV off earlier to go outside, quietly.
Praise God with your health, quietly.
