The truly amazing part of this acquisition is now that I have incorporated a three to five day exercise plan into my life, I look forward to walking on the treadmill. What attracts me to such a huge, bulky piece of equipment, you may ask?
Allow me to let you in on my physical fitness secret. The time I spend exercising my physical body, I am exercising my spiritual body as well. I have found that if I play praise and worship songs on my MP3 player, the focus is not on the pain and agony we sometimes go through getting our bodies physically fit. The focus is on praising and lifting up our Heavenly Father.
I find myself getting lost in His presence and going nowhere but yet going somewhere with my Lord. As I am enduring physical fitness, I am experiencing spiritual fitness. Before I knew it, a twenty-minute exercise regimen has turned into forty plus minutes of walking with the Lord. So, the next time you pass by that dusty treadmill of yours, remember you may be missing an opportunity to walk with the Lord. Not only will your physical body benefit, but your spiritual life will as well.
