Scripture: Mark 12

The greatest commandments are one in the same: love God, love others.

This doesn’t necessarily happen naturally. It takes intention.

Be intentional with your love:

I took this from an advent devotional I’ve been doing on the Bible app and it has been on point for 2020!

Journal: Write a prayer asking God to help you love intentionally.

Move: Last Monday I said I was going to alternate posting my mat pilates video and my runner’s (or anyone’s) glute/hip supplement video every week this month, so we can work on building up a strong, yet flexible core. Here’s the glute/hip video for today:

Daily Dig: 11/11/20

Scripture: Mark 11

22 And Jesus answered them, “Have faith in God. 23 Truly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and thrown into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says will come to pass, it will be done for him.

Faith that moves mountains. Faith that never doubts prayer is a pathway to the all-powerful God. Faith that unquestionably believes in that power.

I want that kind of faith.

Journal: Write a prayer thanking God that we can pray to Him and that He hears and answers.

Move: A dumbbell workout for the legs. 4 sets of 15 reps each:

  • Sumo deadlifts
  • Split squats
  • Walking lunges
  • Stability ball leg curls
  • Glute bridge
  • Calf raises

Praise the Lord, and just show up.

Daily Dig: 10/3/20

Scripture: Mark 10

Wouldn’t the world be a different place if everyone lived to serve others?!

I asked one of my children to take out the trash yesterday and he said, “But I don’t want to; it doesn’t make me happy.”

I, in sarcastic mom fashion, said, “Oh! I didn’t realize we were all here to make each other happy!”

He got it…if we’re all trying to do what makes us personally happy then someone nearby is going to be made unhappy.

We can’t all have the best seats or the highest rank, and that’s not what we should be striving for as followers of Christ. Let’s flip the script like Jesus did.

43 But it shall not be so among you. But whoever would be great among you must be your servant, 44 and whoever would be first among you must be slave of all. 

Journal: Write a prayer to God humbling yourself before Him.

Move: 5k day! Anywhere, anytime. Go give me your best 3.2 miles.

Praise the Lord, and keep showing up!
