Natasha’s Daily Scripture, Prayer, and Reflection for 4.6.16

Scripture

  
1 Timothy 4:8

Pray

When my body gives out, my convictions and character will still push forward—that’s what I pray for Father. Let me not fixate on the temporal, but rather be driven by the eternal. 

My body is Yours, a temple that I’m not to abuse or misuse. I promise not to obsess over it and risk my most intangible possession—my soul, as a trade off. 

Reflection 

There are some people with bodies that look like a sculptor chiseled them. They are lean and muscular, exuding strength and power as they walk confidently. 

Some of those people are physically strong, but spiritually bankrupt—their faith is tied to what they can see, what they possess, what they can buy. But there is a lack of foundation in God’s Word. 

Take care of God’s temple (your body) while you also take care of your spiritual heart and mind. When the body goes, the other two carry on.

Natasha’s Daily Scripture, Prayer, and Reflection for 3.20.14

…for the training of the body has a limited benefit, but godliness is beneficial in every way, since it holds promise for the present life and also for the life to come.

1 Timothy 4:8 HCSB

Pray
Father please help get me in shape spiritually for the life that You are preparing me for. Mold out of me what displeases You, and mold in to me what honors and reflects You. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.

Reflection
We spend a great deal of time focused on things that are temporal and not enough time on developing the very things that will carry us on to our next level of existence. It’s just unfathomable to believe that after all of the ups and downs we experience here in human form, that we would transition to the next level and do absolutely nothing. No, we are being prepared like it’s Super Bowl or the Play Offs. So why aren’t we getting ourselves spiritually fit, in shape, and healthy?

Question of the Day
1. In what area(s) do you need a spiritual “tuneup” or “workout”?
