Faith & Fitness


In my email inbox this morning I had my daily Scripture verse from Daily Bible Verse. And since I am interested in all things health, nutrition, and fitness, I was absolutely in awe of the words that God sent to me today! Check this out:

"For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the prsent life and the life to come." 1 Timothy 4:8


Perfect, right?! Of course it is. What an absolutely perfect verse to remind us that while physical fitness is of course important, we sometimes make the mistake of thinking that it will make us a better, happier person. When the truth is, that giving ourselves to God and His perfect will for our lives is the only way we can change from the inside out. Physical training is of some value, but godliness has value in ALL things.

Have a terrific Tuesday, lovelies!

Speaking of training.....went and had my hip checked out today. Tendonitis......also known as "if you want it to heal you have to stop running long distances - itis". UGH!! Oh well....I start physical therapy next week and will be a good girl and stick to Boot camp 3 days a week and postpone my marathon dreams for another time.
