Philippians 3:12-14 (The Message Bible)

I'm not saying that I have this all together, that I have it made. But I am well on my way, reaching out for Christ, who has so wondrously reached out for me. Friends, don't get me wrong: By no means do I count myself an expert in all of this, but I've got my eye on the goal, where God is beckoning us onward—to Jesus. I'm off and running, and I'm not turning back.

Do you like you?

So, how do you like yourself these days? Are you the kind of person you'd want to be friends with? Are you the kind of woman you hope your son will marry someday? Or the kind of man you hope your daughter finds to marry?
That's tough, huh?
I know it is for me.
While I love the person that God is shaping me into...I'm still a work in progress and I'm fairly certain that at times I get in the way of what He's trying to accomplish!
I just want to encourage you that while you're on this journey of getting fit and living healthy, be sure not to neglect the side of you that really counts--the inside! These bodies that we're working so hard on...they're gonna get buried in the ground one day...but our spirits will live on forever! I'll be hangin' out in heaven...and I sincerely hope you'll be my neighbor!
Challenge yourself to spend as much time "working out" your spirit as you do your body! Can you imagine if we did the spiritual version of P90X? WOO! Man!
C'mon-Bring It!
