I started exercising today. Took my floormat out. Started off with stretches. Did some jumping jacks, sit ups, and more. Then I woke up. No wonder I didn't break a sweat!
I started thinking about how this correlates with our spiritual life.
Many of us, myself included, dream and talk about how we want to do more for God, but that is all we do.
We don't exercise our faith. We just sit back and watch others do it. Why is that?
I think it comes down to the fear of failing. We are afraid of coming out of our comfort zone and stepping out on the water.
We don't want to disappoint God so we don't even try.
Then I realized that we could never disappoint Our Father when we put our best effort forth. He is always there to back us up.
When the Holy Spirit nudges us we need to move forward and we need to exercise our faith. God will be on the journey with us.
