This morning is a frosty one here in the Midwest. Cold, cold, cold.
And there’s no better way to beat the cold than to get hot n’ sweaty doing a circuit workout!
But first things first:
This morning’s reading was 1 Timothy 2:1-4. Check it out:
“I urge you, first of all, to pray for all people. As you make your requests, plead for God’s mercy upon them, and give thanks. Pray this way for kings and all others who are in authority, so that we can live in peace and quietness, in godliness and dignity. This is good and pleases God our Savior, for he wants everyone to be saved and to understand the truth.”
Interesting, huh? I’d say that I’m pretty decent at praying for others, but I can’t tell you the last time I prayed for authority. Paul is telling Timothy here that it’s important to pray for those in authority over us because–not only is it a good thing to have a boss or president that’s following God–but because He desires that everyone know Him.
This morning’s workout left my calves sore for days. But I loved feeling the burn, knowing that my legs are stronger for it. Regardless, I suggest a good stretch afterward.
If you’re not familiar with one of the exercises, I suggest looking it up on YouTube for a demonstration. (FYI: “squat kicks” are a bodyweight squat, followed with a kick of one leg, then repeating with the other leg).
Enjoy, and feel the burn!
Have you ever prayed for your boss, CEO, State governor, etc.? If so, what king of things specifically did you pray for? (Comment below!)
