While working out the other day I took my eyes off of the instructor on the video, because I thought, I've done this enough I know what to do, it's only when I looked up again a little bit later, did I realize that I was doing something completely different than what the instructor was doing and didn't even hear him say move on to the next move.
I realized that I do that in my own life sometimes. I take my eyes off God and that's when self-doubt, bad attitudes, and self sufficiency creeps in.
Even if it's just briefly, that's enough time for the devil to swoop in and starting planting his lies. He loves to whisper when our guard is down. He's been around long enough to pick up on the signs of complacency.
Thankfully, I'm starting to realize a little quicker when I'm doing this and start looking up a little faster.
I'm slowly moving from believing in to believing. And living like I believe and am truly set FREE.
Hebrews 12:1,2 "Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a huge crowd of witnesses to the life of faith, let us strip off every weight that slow us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up. And let us run with endurance the race that God has set before us. We do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus, the champion who initiates and perfects our faith."
Isn't is funny how something you can gather such deep thoughts in the middle of a workout? Well, maybe not that deep, but something to think about at least.
Good thing it was just the warm up:)
