Scripture to Memorize:
Proverbs 31:22-23 “She maketh herself coverings of tapestry; her clothing is silk and purple. Her husband is known in the gates, when he sitteth among the elders of the land.”
What is our ideal body weight? I checked out the body mass index in Donna’s book and I am obese. Yuck!!! I struggle with sweets at night, which is my downfall. I get daily exercise and I am able to do the activities I desire to do and enjoy doing. I would like to lose the 5-10 pounds that will put me in the normal range, but for the past 10 years I have been unwilling to embrace that disciple. At an American College of Sports Medicine training seminar I learned, it is better to be 25pounds over weight and fit then to be at your ideal body weight or under and unfit. When you determine the weight you want to maintain for a lifetime, make sure it includes fitness!
1 Timothy 4:8 “ For bodily exercise profiteth little; but godliness is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come. “
1 Corinthians 9:27 “But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection; lest that by any means when I have preached to others, I myself should be castaway.”
Be fit and be blessed,
