What a special month. My baby sister’s birthday, Mother’s Day, Memorial Day, and MY BIRTHDAY (my Aunt Vanessa’s birthday, too) are all in May. For the most part, this month is all about women—specifically, those in my life.
By now, I think most of us have settled into the year. I can’t call it a new year anymore because it’s not.
I’m at the point where I feel like I can breathe. School is almost out for the summer, and the weather is just warm enough to enjoy morning run/walks. When I exercise, outside especially, I feel closer to God.
I want to be strong physically and spiritually. I guess that’s why I chose the following scripture as motivation for this month.
Lately, I’ve been weak. My faith is low. I’ve been at the point of quitting a few times a day. When I get like this, I know that I need to flex my spiritual muscles and face my challenges. To overcome weakness, I must exercise.
Spiritual battles turn into physical battles for me. When I’m spiritually weak, it shows up on my waistline and in acne breakouts. I want to trust God so that I can be spiritually and physically strong.
As I approach my 41st birthday, I’ll share some of the things I’m doing to become stronger in Christ. Hopefully, you’ll take some time to help me along the way by sharing your spiritual and physical exercise regimens.
Let’s grow our faith.
How can you tell when you are spiritually weak?
