It’s week 3! If you are just joining us…jump right in!

Each challenge is designed to help us stay focused on strengthening our faith and fitness journey! Feel free to take all or part of the challenge. There are 3 categories…

Fitness, Nutrition, Scripture! We are reversing the order this week and starting with scripture!

Scripture:

Pick a motivational verse! There are many but this should be personal to you and your journey. I’ve had several for different circumstances. 1 Cor. 15:58 is my go to when I need to remember to not back down from serving the Lord. Heb. 12:1-2 is my go to for training in athletics. If you have trouble choosing one, leave a comment and we will help!

Once you have your verse memorize it in a way that you can say it quickly and easily! For instance, Hebrews 12:1-2 says, “Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.” That’s is a mouthful while you run and that’s when I use the verse often. So here is my chant for this verse:

Run the race, keep the pace, keep your eyes on Jesus!

Why take the challenge with others?
One weekend after completing a 5K race, a sweet Faithfully Fit sister leaned over and said, “Thank you, I couldn’t have done this without you”. Everyday, every week, that is what Faithfully Fit is all about! Sitting in the floor, telling others to run the race, to keep their eyes on Jesus, so they know the one who finished the work of the cross.
Every week we sweat together so that we may pray together.
We laugh together so that we may cry together.
We love together so that all know that they are loved.
Take the challenge!
