I started exercising again. It’s killing me.

Not really. But you know I had to add some dramatic effect! It just feels like it’s killing me while I am doing it. I’d just forgotten how good you feel once it’s over!

Clearly there are health benefits to the exercising…otherwise I wouldn’t be doing it, I can assure you. But it has occurred to me that there are other benefits as well.

It is helping me relax.

I’ve slept better since I started.

It helps clear my mind.

And it helps me sweat out a lot of heartburn.

Because it’s awfully hard to worry about stuff when you are working on learning new yoga poses or keeping your heart rate up.

The testimony is that God is calling me into a better way of life (again). He wants me to relax, to not worry, to face each day with a clear heart and mind. And he promises to see me through to the end, as he honors the work I am willing to do.

being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. Philippians 1:6

Let me encourage you today to pick up the thing God is calling you to do. It might be hard but it will be worth it in the long run. Because whenever God has called you to it, he will see you through it.

And that’s good for your soul!
