I’m waking up earlier than ever before in my life (I’m a night owl and SO not a morning person!) and I’m usually out of the house about 7 or 7:30 am. In many ways, those walks are a highlight of my day. They’re also good for me — in every way I can think of.
Worshipping God, not just with our inner selves, but with our whole selves, including our bodies, takes many specific forms in Scripture, including: standing, shouting, kneeling, singing, and lifting hands.
When my health began to decline, I started to see my tracker as an enemy, because I couldn’t see one step forward, just two steps back...
The first day back was slow – a very, very slow five minutes. And though I felt worse after exercising, I kept it, continuing to log “my paltry five minutes” each day. Over the next several weeks, I added minutes and music, letting my stride sync with the rhythm of the songs.
