My church's sermon series is called Don't Waste Your Life. Many people waste their lives doing things that really do not matter in the scheme of things. I mean Facebook, playing video games, watching Youtube, television, etc. So many ways to waste our time instead of getting on to the business at hand. I am one of these people.
I realized that God never wanted me to sit on my laurels and feel sorry for myself, nor does he want me to sit around doing nothing. I have a purpose and destiny and I will not reach them if I am sitting on my computer or couch. I have to get moving and do. Isn't that Sparkpeople? Get up and move.
I find so many parallels between my Christian faith and the purpose of SparkPeople. Eat healthy, get exercise, motivation, encouraging others, spreading the Spark. It is living the Chrisitan faith in our body as well as our social lives.
I am so grateful for NewSpring, my church and SparkPeople. It is a place to be fed and to encourage one another on our life's journey. So, if you are lacking the spiritual side of things, I invite you to www.newspring.cc. I guarantee you will be blessed and motivated to spread the good news of Jesus Christ. Sparkpeople is the best source for getting motivated to eat healthy, exercise and tell others about the Spark. Together these websites can help you to change your life for the best. And that is what God intends for us. He wants us to be happy and reach our fullness in Him. With His help, that is my goal. I hope you make it yours as well.
