Heart Challenge Part 1
Choose, in your heart, to make exercise a part of your daily routine and remain consistent!
A complete program has three types of activity: 1) Aerobic activity like brisk walking, jogging, dancing or biking gets your heart rate up. 2) Resistance training (like doing pushups) firms, strengthens, and tones muscles. 3) Flexibility exercises stretch and lengthen muscles so you’re more flexible— think yoga.

Heart Challenge Part 2
Choose to acknowledge the Lord in all your ways. Honoring God is not something we do in our own strength. But, as His children we have His strength on which we may rely. He equips us with His Holy Spirit to help guide us in the path we should go. (Isaiah 30: 21 & John 14: 26). Make up your mind, before your feet hit the ground, to say yes to Him. It is the one who hears the Word and does it who is blessed. (James 1:25). Your exercise in faithfulness will keep your heart tender towards God, and protect it from hardening. (Hebrews 3:13). Let the song below be your prayer this week:
Happy temple building!
Take care. Bless many.
