working out

I do not like to workout. I love to walk and play sports - I do not like to work out! But I have never needed to more!!

I wrote a week or so ago about my daughter being a Turbo Kick instructor... so guess what? I'm doing Turbo kick classes and I am very sore tonight and exhausted.

It is fascinating to realize that God could have created us anyway He wanted to, and that could have included staying in shape without work. Instead He designed us to work, really for almost anything that is good.

Good health.
To make a good living.
To have good relationships.
And to be good.

Good health requires good decisions both in what we do and what we do not do.

A good living requires hard work and decisions based on honesty and good planning.

Good relationships take work and consideration and priority the entire time they exist.

And to be good...well, that is way beyond our own ability! Even with our most determined desire to work at Biblical study, maturity and to live obediently. It requires an indwelling of the Holy Spirit to give us any hope of goodness.

So as I finished my physical workout today, I am thankful that God didn't design us just to sit around, even though I am a little sore at the moment!
