About ten days ago I hit a physical wall. My body ached. A lot. For someone as “fit,” as I am, things were starting to look kind of bleek. I was starting to feel hopeless about my body. It’s funny how no matter how good you feel in your soul and Spirit, no matter how high you are flying on the wings of hope, if your body isn’t well, you are easy prey for fear, doubt, and unbelief. I am so glad Jesus came for ALL of us – our bodies too.
I confess to you I was grieving the Holy Spirit. There were TWO simple things the Lord has been calling me to do, for some time now, that I was making no time to do and lots of excuses why. Friends, if I have said it before, I will say it again – God is not difficult. His work is light and easy. Why do we make it so hard?
Ten days ago, with the aches of my body at its highest, I took off my shoes, stood on holy ground, and surrendered to God’s gentle whipsers. I bowed my heart and vowed to start doing these two little things He had been asking me to do, a little bit, each day.
Today my body feels completely different than it did ten days ago! No joke! I feel like a science experiment of heaven. But not a complex science experiment but a simple one. My physical aches and pains are little to none, I am sleeping deeper, and my fitness level that I thought I lost a year ago with my foot injury, is back! I feel like a walking miracle. God really does know each one of us best.
So what did I do you aks? I did the following:
- I started drinking more water (with an added twist 🙂
- I started myofascial releasing (foam rolling) each day.
Take a listen to this FB Live video I did today to hear more about my testimony and the details of why you want to do this and how you can easily start implementing these simple two practices each day. It’s the time for you to get back what you mistakingly thought was gone for good.
To help you get on your way this #workoutwednesday we give you a FREE foam rolling video from RevWell TV, our at-home, on-line workout library. If you don’t have a foam roller, I encourage you to put one at the top of your Christmas list! Next month RevWell TV will be loaded with all kinds of 2017, New Year’s goodness of God.
