I exercised this evening. I spent twenty minutes alternating between 60 seconds of running and 90 seconds of walking. That's what my Couch to 5K plan recommends for this week. I shudder to think what next week's workout will be. I haven't looked because I am taking it one week at a time.
But, when I was finished running, I sat in the grass and stretched and then I laid in the grass and closed my eyes and listened to my worship music, but I heard more than that. I heard the Spirit of God say something very personal to my heart. I had been quietly frustrated earlier this week that I am not as healthy on the outside as I am on the inside. I have been wondering why my body doesn't match my spirit. I had been asking God why I haven't found a way to physical fitness already and why I seem to have to bring everything in my life to him for help. This was what He said to me,
"I don't want you to have to do anything without me."
Since I wasn't right in the middle of complaining about my health, it took me a while to realize what He was even talking about, but when I did, I smiled. The Lord has done an excellent job transforming my soul. I can trust him to help me with my body, too, and that's good because I don't really want to do anything without Him anyway.
