WILLING TO LEAVE
May 28, 2010Read: Revelation 5 "Then one of the elders said to me, 'Do not weep! See, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has triumphed. He is able to open the scroll and its seven seals.'" --Revelation 5:5
Just imagine if our President, during World War I or II, couldn't find anyone to leave home and fight -- not a soul who would step onto foreign soil and battle for our way of life. When you think about it, how many shores had to be attacked? How many fox holes needing digging? How many hills needing climbing to secure our freedom? There's no denying the fact that we're able to read this sentence because someone decided to go.
My mom used to sing a song called "Had It Not Been".
"Just suppose God searched through Heaven, couldn't find one willing to be, the supreme sacrifice that was needed, that could buy eternal life for you and me. Had it not been for a place called Mt. Calvary, had it not been for the old rugged cross, and had it not been for a man called Jesus, then forever my soul would be lost."
This memorial weekend, let's remember with honor those brave American men and women who paid the ultimate price with a fight; and Jesus, for not putting one up at all.
It's the end of the week. You're probably far more fixated on the weekend's lineup of barbecues and ballgames than you are on today's tasks at work, school, home or even the gym. That's okay. It's a weekend to celebrate and remember.
But if you are in a groove with your fitness and nutrition, just remember to take a mindset of moderation with you to your social gatherings. And if you're really looking to offset any potential backsliding, mix in a few early morning workouts to jolt your metabolism ahead of the grilling goodness.
