These epiphanies and stories are snippets from my life, all sixty decades of it. They comprise sort of a fitness program designed by God, my Trainer, relentless in His goal.
It was during the time that I changed from a flabby self-conscious Mom to a physically fit health guru and manager of a fitness center, when I learned all there was to know about keeping the body in perfect shape. Oddly enough, this transformation began a few short months after I had become a Christian. My identity had drastically changed both spiritually and physically.
Have you ever struggled with your body image? Bad eating habits, lack of exercise, not feeling like you know you should?
God cares about that and He has a Plan that will work.
Does your spiritual life leave you feeling disconnected? Do sin and temptation trip you up in your faith walk? Does life itself scare you?
God’s plan for your life is to make you like “a tree planted by streams of water which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither and whatever it does prospers (Psalm 1:3)
FAITH FITNESS AND FRUIT is about God’s Fitness Plan. You will read how I’ve stumbled, crumbled, and combatted God as He pulled me through the rigors of life. My God Stories tell of the “miragical “ times, too, when God showed me His glory, brought me to victories, big and small, and to a new season where the fruit is mighty fine.
God’s Fitness Plan works because He won’t have it any other way. It is for us “to prosper and be in health as our soul prospers.” (3John 2)
How has your fitness program worked for you?
