Life Gets The Best of Me
Someday our souls will soar. You know, I talk a lot about how our lives are all about Jesus in our hearts and not about how we look on the outside. It's not that I don't have anything else to say, but I just can't exhaust that point. The comparison between the condition of our soul and the condition of our body isn't worth the kilocalories it took to type this sentence. And yet you and I still hear something within us telling us to take care of ourselves; an urge to push away from the table a little sooner; a nudge to start being more active. Say, ever been behind the wheel of a stalled car? You turn the key and you hear, "Click, click, click, click", nothing. Won't start. Well, the next time that happens, and you're pleading with your car to "Please start, please start", just think of your heart's cry. That whisper you hear to take better care of yourself is coming from your driver's seat, and it's loud...but only your ears can hear that plea.
You know, the day our frail bodies actually stall for good, the spirit will do exactly what it was built to do. But first, our souls have work to do on earth. And this body - even if it's just for a minute - will have to keep up. Jimmy Peña
Tools To Help: The PrayFit App is about to get even better. As many of you know, I used to be the training expert and fitness director to the mainstream magazines, wrote some books, and was the go-to physiologist for some celebrities. Well, I am going to be taking questions via the app and answering your training, fitness and nutrition questions on the new video feature. Neat huh? VID-EEE-OOooooo. They don't call me "One-Take-Peña" for nothin. So, hit me up. Fire away. Send me your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll answer them into camera. My body may not be able to train, but this brain still knows the way and my heart still wants to show the way.
