Lessons From The Gym

For those who do not know me, being in the gym is something I thoroughly enjoy. It’s my relaxation and “me” time. A time I can meditate and unwind. Aside from being focused solely on myself, I have learned many things about God, ministry, and life.

One thing is: RESISTANCE IS A GOOD THING! Yes, you read that right!

In the gym, resistance means more weight. While weight training, if you always lift the same amount of weight you will never get stronger, or grow. Initially, it seems hard and you will be VERY sore, but your body will become used to it.

In God’s kingdom, resistance helps us grow. I’m not talking about everyone being against you or hating you. But, I am talking about when we do hard things in life! That is resistance.

-Praying when it’s hard
-Ending a relationship
-Changing jobs

These are some things that are resistance in our lives! Just like pumping iron, it may hurt, it may be extremely hard, or you may be sore for days, but you can count on getting stronger and bigger!

WHAT ARE SOME OTHER THINGS WE FACE THAT ARE HARD BUT MAKE US STRONGER?
