No sugar or dairy
Meg Marie Wallace writes A lifestyle beauty blog about life, fashion and fitness. Her fitness blog is called, “Fit for a Purpose.” I love that! She makes some great observations concerning Motivation and Focus.
Fitness and healthy eating are important because they help to create a lifestyle that allows me to give more to others.
Repent when you allow wrong motives to creep in.
I want to use all I have to pour out my life for those around me, and ultimately make Jesus’ name great.
Fitness is not about simply caring well for myself . . . it’s about caring well for myself in order that I am able to care well for those I love most and to honor the Lord with what He has given me. That last clause changes everything.
“Honoring the Lord with what He has given me!” Remembering my body belongs to the Lord helps as I seek to follow through on this month of no dairy, and no sugar. God’s Word brings a huge amount of clarity and motivation.
All things are lawful for me, but not all things are profitable . . . I will not be mastered by anything. Food is for the stomach, and the stomach is for food; . . . the body is not for immorality, but for the Lord; and the Lord is for the body. Now God has not only raised the Lord but will also raise us up though His power. . . do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own? For you have been bought with a price therefore glorify God in your body (1 Corinthians 6:12-20, NAS).
“Repent when you allow wrong motives to creep in.”
A quote from Charles Spurgeon helps me mind my mind:
Make God the source, the center, and the circumference of all thy soul’s range of delight. Rest no longer satisfied with thy dwarfish attainments. Aspire to a higher, a noble, a fuller life. Upward to heaven! Nearer to God!
What kind of life do you aspire to?
