With all my being, I did not want to run this morning. Hi, I’m Lysa TerKeurst with Proverbs 31 Ministries.
I wish I could tell you I’m one of those people that just loves to exercise but I’ll be honest… I do it for health reasons and to help manage my weight. But I certainly don’t love the actual physical labor of running. But I do love how I feel afterwards.
I’ve learned from running that sometimes I have to push through the “don’t want to’s” because on the other side of every “don’t want to” is a really great feeling of accomplishment.
The Bible says “The Sovereign Lord is my strength; he makes my feet like a deer, he enables me to go to the heights.”
Is there a “don’t want to” thing that you’ve been avoiding? Why not ask God to enable you to accomplish this very thing? Afterwards, I bet you’ll feel pretty great too.
