Excerpt from faithful: Living God's Way Guidebook
Two weeks ago we focused on being a disciple of Jesus. Last week we focused on how we can build disciples in our home. This week I want us to look into making disciples in our community.
All of us are wired differently. For some of us stepping out to make disciples in our own community can be the most challenging. Here are some of the common challenges people mention.
Here are my thoughts on each of these issues:
After 26 years in the fitness industry I’ve heard all the reasons for not exercising. I completely believe that God wants us to care for our bodies (His creation) so I wanted to help you overcome some of the barriers that prevent people from exercising.
No Time: This is probably the #1 reason I hear. It’s true that we have so much going on in our lives that it makes getting exercise into our schedule really hard. The first thing I recommend to help you find the time is to schedule it. Write it in your day’s plans. If you haven’t been able to find the time to workout start by scheduling 2 workouts a week, after a few weeks move it up to three a week and keep going until you are able to find time for 5 a week.
Don’t feel like you have to reserve a full hour or more. If you only have 20 minutes schedule that. I know there are days where even 20 minutes is too hard to come by. On those days make the most of every opportunity to get a minute of exercise. Park in the furthest parking spot and fast walk to the entrance. If you have household chores or yard work to do make it a workout by moving at a quick pace. Get up a few minutes early and do some pushups before jumping in the shower. There are so many small ways to squeeze it in.
