I had such a hard time getting up this morning. I knew I had to workout today but all I wanted to do was go back to sleep. I had to gather all the will power I had inside of me to get dressed and go on the treadmill. Sometimes I feel the same way about going to church or doing ministry.
I had the best workout so far– ran/jogged 6.2 miles in 70:38 minutes (I want to run a 10K in May). Ran/jogged a total of 6.92 miles in 80:01 minutes. It made me realize that we have to break out of what is comfortable. This morning I was comfortable in my warm bed. On days when I have church or when I have some kind of ministry to do, I often feel like staying at home where I am cozy; but it seems that when I muster the will power to go then I am blessed by the experience. I came across Romans 12:11 today, “Never be lazy, but work hard and serve the Lord enthusiastically” (NLT).
I know that I will have days when I will want to be comfortable again, but I hope that I will remember the blessings I experienced when I was uncomfortable.
