exercise in faith…

Sister Talk: Resuscitate Your Faith… launched today…
an exercise in faith…

With a new Fitbit Charge HR on my wrist…
I could tell just how much exercise it was…

Fitbit… a glorified pedometer… with heart rate monitor…

After the study… I felt as if my heart was racing…
I’d felt fine during the study… spirit calm…
but apparently the flesh got all stirred up…

I checked my heart rate… 93…
my resting rate… usually… 71…

Now this was not a physically demanding Bible study…
we sat in chairs the whole time… in air conditioning…
talking… sharing… about faith…

I looked at my Fitbit app… to see just what my heart rate had been doing…
this is what I saw…

Note the noon hour… 
the study started at 12:30…
Those spikes…? I wasn’t jogging… I was stepping out in faith…
It took more than an hour for my heart rate to come down after study…
a little less time than when I tried out a friend’s TreadClimber the other day…
This exercise in faith…
an exercise for the flesh too…
Walking with the Spirit…
not only good for the soul…
but for the body too…
For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things,
holding promise for both the present life and the life to come.
1 Timothy 4:8 NIV
