Daily Bible Reading: Mark 16: 1-13
Another weigh in day! Yippee! (Or not. 😉 ) Before we worry about what the scale says today, let’s talk about our Scripture for the day.
In Mark 16, it speaks of Jesus and what happened after He rose from the dead. Could you imagine being one of the people Jesus appeared to first? What an honor.
I want you to zoom in on verse 12: “After that he appeared in another form unto two of them, as they walked, and went into the country.”
Did you catch when He appeared unto them? “As they walked.”
My favorite days are the days when I get to take my 5 mile walks. That is my time with the Lord. It’s just me and Him, walking and talking together. I can pray, talk to Him about anything stressing me out, and just enjoy the beauty of His creation while I’m walking. It gets me out of the house, I’m up on my feet, and my filling my heart AND helping my body. There’s not much better than that. The best part is, there have been days when the Lord has shown up and made my walk that much sweeter.
People always ask me what kind of exercise routine I do, or which gym I belong to since I’ve lost all my weight. I simply tell them, “I’ve literally walked my butt off.” And, it’s true. Sure, I do some free weights, but I make sure I walk every day, somehow. Sometimes I have to walk on the wii fit. Other days, it’s the treadmill, but I look forward to the days I can get outside and walk.
If you aren’t walking yet, why not start? Walk by yourself, with your spouse, your kids, your dog – doesn’t matter. Just get up on your feet and get moving!
1. Is walking part of your workout routine? Do you think it would help you? If it is, have you ever had a time when you felt like the Lord was with you on your walk?
2. What did the scale say today? How are you feeling about it?
Exercise at least 30 minutes and drink 8 glasses of water.
