We know it’s important to stay in shape spiritually. Right? I mean, as Christians we know we’re on this earth temporarily, and eventually, these bodies of ours will age and, over the course of a century, crumble back to dust. But our souls will live on for eternity in heaven if we stay right with God on His path.
Still, some of us get so caught up in the spiritual stuff that we forget: God gave us a body for a reason. Now, not all of us are prime specimens. Maybe we’ve lost some muscle tone, or because of age, life circumstance, or infirmity, lost some of our original physical abilities. (Or maybe, like me, we’re spending too much time with that carton of ice cream binging on Netflix.) Let’s face it: We can’t all look like Captain America—or Captain Marvel.
Some weeks are just plain rough. The car breaks down, you lose your temper big-time with the kids, your whole department at work gets laid off—you name it. There’s no way through it except to just embrace the struggle, give it to God, and keep on going the best you can.
If this is you this week, we see you. In fact, we’re right there with you.
