THANKFUL THURSDAY...strength for today!

I've been thinking about getting more in shape. Physically that is. I need to exercise more and eat better. My body (physically) needs alittle bit of toning, re-shaping and rebuilding. I need to find some more strength. Where do you go to find strength?

The gym?
The health food store?
The espresso bar?

Not only is my physical body in need of some strength but my spirit man is also in need! God is a never-ending source of strength and courage whenever I call upon Him. I love the scripture in Exodus that says "The Lord is my strength and my song; He has become my victory. He is my God and I will praise Him." (Exodus 15:2)

Now THAT is the kind of strength I need...the kind that leads to victory! Have you tapped into the power of God? or are you muddling along under your own power? I am so thankful that God is my source for the strength needed for day to day!

I am blessed to be able to host THANKFUL THURSDAY this month, next month you will find us over at Lynn's Place. Please join your grateful heart with ours. HAPPY TT!

I've been muddling this week. Thankfully I heard a great lesson on James last night that refreshed me!

Thanks for the reminder to not just muddle.

I love to walk for exercise, so I look forward to this nice weather so that I can get back out and go. I use my walking time to think about God, to pray with God for those He has put on my heart, and to admire His creation as I see things coming to life in the yards I walk by.

Recently, there have been a few things going on for me and for loved ones, & I am so glad I can go to Him and pour out my heart - He is my strength! The scripture you shared is a perfect reminder for us.
Thank you!
Laurie

I have found that if my faith is strong I find the strength to exercise. Great post.
