ABUNDANT HEALTH

Exercise You Will Love

A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones. Proverbs 17:22 (NIV)

Despite all the research surrounding the benefits of regular exercise, the only one that will make a difference is the program you do consistently. Once you find movement you enjoy, doing that type of exercise (or play) will help you look and feel younger, ramp up a sluggish metabolism, reduce and manage your weight, boost your energy, enhance creativity and productivity, increase cardiovascular endurance, improve muscular tone and strength, enhance sleep, reverse heart disease and high blood pressure and diabetes, reduce stress, and bring joy and youthfulness back to your life.

PRAYER OF THANKSGIVING

Holy God, we praise you for the life you give to each person you dearly love. As we face the mysteries of sin and tragedy, give us wisdom to view them in the light of the cross. We praise you for your redeeming love for the world. Help us to wear the armor of Christ and turn aside from wasteful things, so that we may live according to your way. We pray in the name of Christ, through whose self-giving love you have conquered death forever. Amen.
