“Indeed, with your help I can charge against an army; by my God’s power I can jump over a wall.” Psalm 18:29
After a series of health challenges over the past few years, I have slowly been getting back to being His ‘Fit Temple’. It hasn’t been easy. I have had lots of non / false starts!
However, for a while now, I have been on a steady climb back to fitness, that is until quite recently, when I felt like I was running on the spot. I realised that just like a long distance runner, I had hit the ‘Wall’. I was dissolutioned, mentally exhausted and fed up, more so as I wasn’t seeing the results I desired.
The first natural reaction was to come up with excuses and give up.
During a long distance race, when a runner hits the wall, to overcome he/ she simply has to keep moving; that is placing one foot ahead of the other.
And so I resolved to do this, I kept training and eating right. I took my training one step further and decided to use the dreaded stair master machine to help with this.
You see before today, I would only last 15 minutes on this machine, and was working out for only 40 minutes a time. However, with determination and focus, I broke the wall of stagnation and was on the stair master for 60 minutes! Needless to say I couldn’t really feel my legs right afterwards, but the freedom and euphoria of training beyond 30 minutes was absolutely amazing! And I still went on to do another 15 minutes of strength training afterwards.
So yes, today, dear Lord, I am grateful that I broke the wall as aspire to become a fitter me. I am thankful for the mindset, opportunity and resources to enable me to enable me to do so.
I am thankful for the desire to become a better vessel, God’s Fit Temple; to be used for His purpose and Glory.
Lord, I pray my gratitude is acceptable in your presence today.
Now, over to you dear readers, WHAT ARE YOU THANKFUL TO GOD FOR TODAY?
