  1. I love the idea of athletic training compared with our walk with Christ. For me, it looks like waking early to have some time alone with the Lord before I greet my little ones. It also looks like seeking to turn my frustrations and thoughts throughout the day toward God…lifting them to Him as prayers rather than just thoughts or worries.

  2. Thank you for this encouragement! I have been building up muscles lately by praying a passage from the “Daily Spirit Blessings” (from Arthur Burk and Sylvia Gunter) daily.
    Only a few days ago I put this little booklet down next to the vitamins and other strengthening medicine I am taking during my studying for the final exams. I intended to pray it once every time I take those tabletts. Suddenly I realised that just the same as we take special preventive measures during tough times I also need to strengthen my spirit regulary and specially when I am in a hard part of the “race”. Because it’s not my feelings that will help me carry on but a strengthened spirit! Now I’m even more determined to keep “working out” like that! Thank you!
