Nothing like a good workout

on September 26, 2013

Morning!  How is your week going so far?  The weather here in Arkansas has been amazing!  Yesterday was no exception…..I wanted to stay outside and play all day!  Today is Thursday and then there is Friday and then there is a day off!  I am going to meet my sister-n-law and check out my nieces soccer game that day and I can’t wait…

Aren’t they the coolest?  My niece is also getting baptized this Sunday and I can’t wait to see that! 

 

I really wanted to thank you guys for your kinds words and texts from my last post.  It’s amazing how He works….  I kind of feel like a weight has been lifted and I know things will work out.  Church is very important to me, it just may not be with the current church that I attend.  God moves us.  We may not like, but the worry of “what if” is far more uncomfortable than not being apart of His will.  And that is what I want. 

 

 

As I said in my last post, I haven’t had too many workouts lately.  I have really just wanted to catch up on some rest and let my shoulder heal and so far I have enjoyed the down time.  Yesterday however, I thought that I would get in a good workout.

Lol….Let me tell ya, my legs were like Jell-o!   It was kind of funny actually.  The entire time my legs were shaky and at the end I thought I was going to fall!  Yes, it’s been that long since I have had a good, hard workout. 

Oops.

 

This morning I popped up out of bed and did my 20 minute ab routine and will run when I get home from work. 

 

 

Devotion:

 

I currently follow the She Reads Truth devotion plan on Daniel and it’s been really cool seeing how God works in this set of scripture.  This morning’s scripture comes from Daniel 3:1-23.  Three guys, who follow God, get thrown into the flames of a pretty hot fire! 

Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego

 

16 Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego replied to him, “King Nebuchadnezzar, we do not need to defend ourselves before you in this matter. 17 If we are thrown into the blazing furnace, the God we serve is able to deliver us from it, and he will deliver us[c] from Your Majesty’s hand. 18 But even if he does not, we want you to know, Your Majesty, that we will not serve your gods or worship the image of gold you have set up.

 

Here’s the thing.  We’re all going to worship something.  We’re all going to serve something.  My desire is to be so close to Christ that even in the midst of a fire, even if I say “but even if He does not”, I will still not bow down to something false.  Something that isn’t good for me.  Something that doesn’t bring me closer to Him.

With everything that is going on at work, I want to be able to say that.  I know that it will all work out the way that it is supposed to.  I was talking to my friend Jesse this morning and he was telling me that if the worst possible thing happens, take this opportunity to do something that you really want to do.  (working with obese children) 

“even if He does not”

 

 

 

Welp gang, it’s off to get a shower and head out to work.  I hope you have an amazing day my friends!!

 

P.S.  I found some really cool bloggers that live in Arkansas!!

  1. Your niece and nephew are certainly the coolest. 😀 I know the jello legs feeling pretty well myself, seeing as I haven’t been that consistent with my workouts lately so you’re not alone. It may take some time to get back on track, but it’ll definitely happen. Hope you enjoy your run!!!

    This is a great post. I love the story of shadrack… I dont want to spell the other guys names so Ill leave it at that… Lol. But there is something special in these men that should be in every heart as a christian. We should all carry the resolve and devotion to The Lord, not out of duty, but out of overflowing love. We love because He first loved us right? When we know how much He loves us, we will easily sacrifice any other thing! 🙂
