Warm Up

The previous post Spirit Health was the pre-intro to this exciting new series. 

Today's post is the official introduction and will outline some goals and officially begin our warm up exercise.

Psalms 51:10 Create in me a clean heart Oh God and renew a right spirit within me.

As mentioned previously, our Spirit, which encompasses our thoughts, judgment, desires, emotions, motivations, imaginations, ambitions, mood, outlook on life is in need of targeted care and attention just like our physical bodies.  It is our spirit that directs our brain which commands our bodies to execute.  Once again, it is important to have a healthy spirit especially for those of us who desire to honor God and be good examples of Christ likeness.

The proper way to begin body exercise is to warm up with low impact aerobics and include stretching. The experts advise that warm up exercise along with stretching gradually builds the heart rate and gradually increases circulation in the muscles, tendons and ligaments which allows them to be more flexible and reduces the risk of injuries.

Let's begin the warm up portion of this series Spirit Health. You are welcome to join in with me as we warm up our spirits for faithful, focused, healthy minds necessary for living a Godly (respectful, reverent, holy, joyful, peaceful, fulfilled, content) life.

1Timothy 4:8 (AMP)
For physical training is of some value (useful for a little), but godliness (spiritual training) is useful and of value in everything and in every way, for it holds promise for the present life and also for the life which is to come.
 
Let's go!!! (we are in the fitness gym of the spirit)..........ok.

How will we allow God to create a clean heart and renew a right spirit within us?

Warm Up Exercise:
  1. Let's acknowledge any/all negative characteristics, traits, Attributes Spirits  that we need to work on silencing, eliminating, executing ...
Exercise : Write down in a journal any negative attributes that I desire to let go of.
            
          Example:
      • Impatience: tendency to become quickly annoyed, irritated, intolerant, short tempered when things aren't going fast enough or situations or individuals don't go along with your preferred plan or direction.
It is important to document all negative traits and understand what they mean, how they negatively affect others and most importantly how they mis-represent Christ.


1Timothy 6:6: But Godliness with contentment is great gain.
