What? Know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s. (1 Corinthians 6:19-20 KJV)
Have you noticed that in the beginning of the year at Target, TJMaxx, etc, they have their workout clothes and healthy snacks displayed in the front of their stores?
They know that many people write out New Year’s resolutions. And they also know that losing weight and getting healthy are on most people’s lists.
And I have to say, I am one of those people.
This year, I told my husband Branden that I wanted to eat healthier and workout more. So what did I do? I went to Pinterest. (lol)
I looked up healthy meals and snacks. I also went out and bought new workout clothes. I was ready to start eating healthy and working out, and I’m happy to say I’m still going strong!
I would like to encourage you to start thinking of your body as the Lord’s body. Start with little things like picking a healthier version of your favorite snacks, start a simple 5-10 minute workout, or a simple walk. Then as you progress you can do more. But most importantly ask The Lord to show you what you can do to start taking care of your body.
Do you know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit? Do you know that our bodies should glorify God? We as children of God are vessels of God and our bodies should be ready to be used at all times. And when I say “used”, I mean the assignments that The Lord has called us to do, we need to be able to perform them.
Here are a few simple workouts, healthy snacks and cute workout clothes that I found on Pinterest. I mean who doesn’t like cute workout clothes? 😉
