I know you know that fueling your body with the right food and fluids is vital for your workouts and overall health…but are you fueling your mind and heart with good stuff, too?
Your mental and spiritual health is even more important than your physical health! Yet, it’s so easy to get distracted on our outward appearance and physical goals, so much so that we neglect our souls. I’ve been there too.
That’s why today, I’m sharing 5 bible verses to fuel your workouts, and to inspire you for the week ahead. These little nuggets of scripture point me back to what matters most — not weight loss, or finish lines, or perfect health – but our eternal prize in Heaven, and in knowing Jesus.
5 Verses to Fuel Your Workouts
1 Corinthians 9:24-27: Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last, but we do it to get a crown that will last forever. Therefore I do not run like someone running aimlessly; I do not fight like a boxer beating the air. No, I strike a blow to my body and make it my slave so that after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified for the prize.
Isaiah 40:29-31: He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.
Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
1 Corinthians 6:19-20: Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own? For you have been purchased at a price. Therefore, glorify God in your body.
2 Timothy 4:7: I have competed well; I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.
1 Corinthians 10:31: So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.
Happy Monday – have a great week!
