Fit for Life or Fit for Death? You Choose
I think about the word "fit" and it means so much more than a healthy fit body. It is feeling fit in mind, body, soul.
The Bible says that we are to be careful what we think about because our thoughts control our life. To me, ALL the things in life we struggle with boil down to this: if your thinking stinks, your attitude will stink and there is no way you will live a positive or happy life.
I believe all things we want to do, accomplish, or overcome MUST start with our head. The perfect diet plan or the perfect workout does not exist if you don't have your head right. The perfect job will not make you happy. The perfect body will not make you happy. The perfect spouse or kids or any of that.
It starts with how we CHOOSE to think. That's right. It's a CHOICE which means we each are responsible for that. No one "makes" us feel anything. We choose it.
I think it is so empowering to know that when we turn our every thought over captive to the Holy Spirit, HE will help us choose well. We will get the stirring in our hearts and then if we agree with Him, He will help us to keep making the choices that lead to life and not death!
How much do you pay attention to your thoughts?
