To go along with our Strength in September theme, we wanted to emphasize the importance of mental strength in our lives. While we focus on becoming physically strong through our challenge, such as the September Squat challenge, let's take time to center our minds!
So, what exactly does mental strength look like? A great example we wanted to share with you all is a small exercise you and your family (or roommates for our sweet college students) can do together. I, Caroline, recently read about a family who goes around the table during breakfast every morning and each of them give an "I will" statement for that day. These statements shape each individual's mind to allow them to live purposefully and intentionally for the day. At the end of the day, the family talks about what became of their "I will" statements, and what God was able to accomplish through them that day. What is it important to vocalize these statements?
Beginning our days with an "I will" statement allows us to live intentionally. God calls us in Colossians 4:5 to "Live wisely among those..., and make the most of every opportunity." In order to truly make the most of every opportunity, we need to live our lives with an "I will" mindset. We need to seek to find opportunities to share love and encouragement and give our best in every moment of the day.
So today, we want to challenge you to set an "I will" statement. Even if it's just for the day of the week, begin to transform your mind by having an eternal mindset, living each day with purpose. Come join us on Tuesday's at noon for our NEW Biblical Meditation session and on Thursday's at noon for our TransFit Bible Study. You can sign up on the TransFit app HERE!
