It is important to focus on your mind and your body when it comes to your health but what about your spiritual fitness as well. I have really been focused this past year on getting my body and mind where it needs to be to become a healthier person. So yesterday I took the next step in my walk with Christ and got baptized. This was a huge step for me because I have been holding back for so long, not because I’m not a follower of Christ but because I’m terrified of water. Yesterday was different, God called me to do this, he called me to take this next step. I was still scared but with the help of family and friends I was able to take this very important step in my life and become a better person spiritually.
Without the help of God I would not have accomplished all that I have with my fitness goals. He is my #1 reason and motivation to keep going when I want to give up. I want to live a healthier life… mind, body and spirit.
1 Timothy 4:7-9English Standard Version (ESV)
7 Have nothing to do with irreverent, silly myths. Rather train yourself for godliness; 8 for while bodily training is of some value, godliness is of value in every way, as it holds promise for the present life and also for the life to come. 9 The saying is trustworthy and deserving of full acceptance.
