Isaiah + a Cardio Workout


Happy Hump Day!

It’s in the high-30’s here in the Midwest… a heat wave!  After 6-8 inches of snow yesterday, this weather is wacky!  But no complaining from this gal.  I love the snow!


The view from my usual coffee shop window spot.

After only a few hours, it looked like my car had been sitting in the parking lot for days!

This morning was a cardio kind of day.  My bee-hind was still sore as a chore from the other day’s leg+cardio workout, so after 10-minutes of warming up on the elliptical, I found myself on it for another 30.

I chose the “cardio interval” workout that comes programmed on the elliptical.  It’s basically 5 intervals of 3 minutes on zero resistance followed by 3 minutes on level 8 resistance.  It was a good welcome-back-to-cardio-after-two-weeks-without kind of workout… nothing too crazy, but designed to keep your heart rate up.

My favorite elliptical program is the “cross training” workout.  That sucker gets up to level 18 resistance!


I wish I had snapped a quick couple pictures of this AM’s breakfast, but it was basically leftover turkey meat from last night’s turkey burgers, with a buncha veggies, mushrooms, and two eggs.  It looked a lot like this omelet my hubby made the other day.


Satisfaction in a skillet.


Today I read Isaiah 40.  The whole chapter puts God in the perspective of the incredible entity that He is.  Especially verses 12-15:

Who else has held the oceans in his hand?  Who has measured off the heavens with his fingers?  Who else knows the weight of the earth or has weighed the mountains and hills on a scale? 13 Who is able to advise the Spirit of the Lord?  Who knows enough to give him advice or teach him? 14 Has the Lord ever needed anyone’s advice?  Does he need instruction about what is good?  Did someone teach him what is right or show him the path of justice?

15 No, for all the nations of the world are but a drop in the bucket.  They are nothing more than dust on the scales…

Whew!  Talk about perspective.  This is the God that I pray to.  This is the One that hears those prayers and cares about me.

Who else compares to a God like that?


How much of your prayer life consists of just adoration of God?  Giving Him the praise He deserves?


Honestly for me, not enough.  I usually end up plunging straight into my requests.  Perspective, son!
