I want to start a new fitness program. What is the first thing I should do?
Dear Getting Started,
The single most important thing you can do for your health is to put your relationship with God as your top priority.
Mathew 6:33 “But, Seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things will be added unto you.”
In order to be truly “Fit” we have to have our hearts right. The only way to this state is by accepting Jesus as our Lord and Savior so we may be filled with His Holy Spirit, giving us a relationship with our Heavenly Father, “God”. When our daily foundation is trusting and accepting Gods’ love, we receive peace in our hearts. This peace allows us to do the work it takes to be truly healthy and well. Without His foundation, stress and anxiety will rule our lives and we’ll become out of balance. Out of balance shows up in over eating, over exercising, over spending worrying etc.… To get started, commit to a daily Bible study and prayer. Then throughout your day check in, are you walking in His peace? If you find yourself walking in anxiety and worry, simple readjust your thoughts and
Be still and know that I He is God.
With His foundation, you will be able to sleep better, and have an internal knowledge that you and your physical body are worth taking care of. To get started love yourself because He first loved you. You are His beautiful child. Take this truth with you moment by moment it will give you His internal motivation.
1 Corinthians 6:19 “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?”
Be fit and be blessed,
