I have a sedentary job. I know I need to exercise. I don’t have time. The time I do have at home, I devote to my husband and my children. How can I possibly fit exercise in?
Super Cool! Sounds like your priorities are on track… Keeping God, your husband and your children first is a basis for inner peace. Your health is also part of this equation. I think of Matthew 6:33 Seek Ye first the kingdom of God, and 1 Corinthians 6:19 Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit. In order to take godly care of your husband and children you need to take care of your relationship with God and your physical body. When we are empty we have nothing to give.
A big dilemma today is how to fit it all in. I suggest time management. Plan your day. Schedule in prayer time and workout time. If your time is packed try to incorporate your family in this time. Family devotionals and family fitness produce happy families. Family fitness can be: playing soccer all together in the backyard, sledding, walking or doing a circuit training workout in your living room. Having the family involved in a fitness routine aids in motivation. This also helps the family stay on track nutritionally.
Deuteronomy 6:5-7 NKJ “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength. And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart. You shall teach them diligently to you children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up.”
