Why is it that we make time to exercise daily, but complain we don’t have enough time to spend with God and helping others?
Why is it that we wake up early to exercise or go to that morning yoga class, but sigh when we have to wake up early Sunday morning for church?
What are we worshipping?
Ourselves and our body?
Or our Creator and Savior?
I haven’t worked out at all this week, but I have….
Volunteered at a homeless shelter and soup kitchen
Reached out to a girl in class with not many friends
Decided to respect a teacher I had lost most respect for…because it was eating away at me more than it was at him.
Taught a nursery class full of one and two-year olds about Christ’s love for us
Got accepted to college with the scholarship I was hoping for
Researched and finally decided what I am going to be majoring in this fall
And finally, chose to have a positive attitude this next 183 days till I graduate. I need to graduate, I have to graduate, I will graduate, so I’m just going to do it and get through!
And if you ask me, I think its been quite an accomplished week. (Even if I have consumed copious amounts of puppy chow and disappeared from the gym!)
Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. ~Philippians 2:9
Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. ~Dueteronomy 6:5
