Have you ever wondered…

  • If God cares about your struggles with food and fitness?
  • How to get your eating under control?
  • Why it’s so hard to stay motivated?
  • How to have a healthy body image?
  • Why worldly fitness answers don’t work?

Sister, I can promise you right now that God cares about you and every struggle or thought you have ever had.

Ladies come to me constantly wondering why they aren’t seeing results, why the fat isn’t melting, and the muscle building. They are doing everything their diet says to do.

Worldly fitness doesn’t work or last forever today I am revealing why.

Worldly Fitness Doesn’t Work

Ultimately, the word worldly means, without God. As Christians, our goal is to put God first in everything. But, fitness can easily become an idol, replacing Jesus in our lives. Worldly fitness is perfection-based and performance-driven and it can create an unhealthy relationship with food and body image.

“I am the vine, you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.” John 15:5

Apart from God, We Can Do Nothing! This includes our fitness.

Here are some shocking numbers related to worldly fitness:

  • $72 Billion Spent Yearly on Diet Aids
  • 74% of Adults are Obese or Overweight
  • 84-91% Of Women Unhappy With Appearance
  • 95% of Diets Fail

Sad right? This is what fitness is without Jesus. So how can we fix this? How can we have a relationship with God during our fitness journey?

How to Workout God’s Way

  • Pray before you workout
  • Dedicate: Make workouts a time of worship
  • Listen to Christian music
  • Motivate yourself with your why
  • Meditate on Scripture
  • Focus on the internal changes

“Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship.” Romans 12:1

Friend, you are a child of God. He cares about every aspect of your life. He knows the number of hairs on your head, why would He not show up for your fitness?

Start slow, you don’t have to dive into everything and try to make a drastic lifestyle change all at once. Pray that God shows you where and how to start, and He will guide you!

Remember, you are Strong. Confident. His.
