Getting in Shape = Getting Closer to God
Did you know that getting yourself in better physical condition can actually make it easier for you to mover closer to God? It's true! When you're at your peak physical condition, you are more prepared to experience God in a very personal way. What is the biggest wall that keeps you from a relationship with God? Our flesh. When we are not in good physical condition, our flesh has taken over and therefore we cannot be as close to Our Heavenly Father.
God promises that He will draw close to you when you draw closer to Him - which leads us to ask the question: How can we draw closer to God? You can accomplish this by doing your part to communicate to God and giving your heart to Him. This can be as simple as reading your Bible, praying or even choosing to live a healthy and active lifestyle.
I remember a long time ago when I was running, something my flesh disliked much! I was struggling to breath and feeling so much pain, but I didn't give up. It was at that time, the Lord gave me the name "Fit By Faith" and also two amazing quotes: "More God inside = Less of me outside" and "Hope is the light at the end of a dark tunnel, and faith is what leads you to it." How cool is that! When I forced my flesh to die and continued to run, that is when the Lord gave me those blessings, our future!
The closer you become to God, the more you will experience His love and blessings!
