Doing The Christian Walk With A Funky Strut

I LOVE PUNISHMENT!!!!

on October 20, 2013

But [like a boxer] I buffet my body [handle it roughly, discipline it by hardships] and subdue it, for fear that after proclaiming to others the Gospel and things pertaining to it, I myself should become unfit [not stand the test, be unapproved and rejected as a counterfeit].  –I Corinthians 9:27 (AMP)

I’ve got no business telling people to do things that I would not do myself.  As myself and my friends age, we’re all realizing that we are no longer teenagers, and the ol’ body is not working quite as well anymore.  So we’re encouraging each other in various fitness goals.  Of course, we have to tell each other to exercise more.  And if there’s one area where my discipline weakness shows itself most plainly, it’s in this.   People who say they love exercise absolutely flabbergast me.  I cannot relate.  Working out, that ain’t my jam.  I do not like it, Sam I Am.  *smirk*

BUT.

I’m doing it anyway.  Because I want to support a friend and be accountable to him.  Because I am the temple of the Holy Spirit and He deserves better digs.  Because I want to walk my talk.

The weekday lunchtime walks don’t really tax me as I do a lot of walking anyway, it’s called life without a car.  But these bike rides…

Last week, 5 miles round trip.  This week–almost 10!!  Was intending to just add a mile to the trip, but curiosity got the better of me and I had to find the southern Lakefront Trail trailhead.  Once I found it, headed back home…and wasn’t totally burned out by the time I hit my “exit”, so kept going.  

Have successfully achieved jelly legs…and I suspect I will be paying for this “ambition” tomorrow…:-P
