Squats and Lunges

This morning when I was brushing my teeth, all of a sudden I just heard "squats and lunges. Squats and lunges would be good to do to get your body ready for digging in El Salvador."It was weird, totally out of no where, I was thinking nothing, except, brush brush brush, when I heard "squats and lunges".

Now, I have no idea if it was God or the Holy Spirit? I don't know how exactly to explain a thought that comes from no where, that seems it may have only come from God.
What I do know is that I wasn't thinking about how to get strong or sexy legs, I was just brushing. I actually don't prefer the muscular look. What I do know though is that I do need to have my body physically ready to do whatever God has planned for me to do to serve him.
I wasn't going to blog about it, but honestly I can't stop thinking about it, and I really feel like God knows that most of you know that I do not have a great imagination and I also do not lie or pretend well.

So at the very least, what I may have randomly been prompted by God to think of, and maybe remind others of, is that I am a born again Christian,saved by Grace and faith in Jesus Christ who gave his life for our sins, and my life is not my own. I was created in His image, for His glory and I am here to serve Him. He uses all of us differently at different times. I am going with my husband and some friends to El Salvador with Living Water International, this summer,to dig a well and I physically and spiritually need to be ABLE to do that!

I guess the challenge for us all is... are you ready? Are you ready to serve? Are you taking care of the body that God has given you? Are you using your body to bring glory to God?

Thanks for reading. <3

God speed! Good night!


  1. I think of these things so very often my friend..... The answer for me is "no" but I will be :) amen! :)

  2. If God is telling you Squats & Lunges, you are right He has a reason. They should be part of your daily routine. Just don't go crazy and do like 200 a day ;)
    He is always faithful to us and knows exactly what we need. And anytime we set out to be faithful to Him, He is always honored.
