Here it is, the final week, of our 21 Day Challenge. The first week we focused on the Mind and gave you a reading plan. The second week we focused on the Spirit and we did the Daniel Fast and had recipes online. This week, our last week of the 7 day challenge, we are focusing on the Body. During these seven days, we are going to do some type of exercise for at least 20 minutes each day. And, I want to encourage you to keep going with the reading and the fasting as you finish this week strong!

The Bible tells us that our bodies are temples to house the Holy Spirit. Because we are His Temple, we should take care of our bodies BUT because we have the power of the Holy Spirit living in us, He gives us the strength we need to take care of ourselves!

Exercise may already be a part of your daily life…if so, I want to encourage you to dig a little deeper these next seven days. Run an extra mile, do extra push up’s, etc. If exercise is new to you, you can start somewhere! Today in the lobby after service we will have a table that has information about 2 different exercise programs in the area that are FREE to you this week!

Here is a list of suggestions for the next 7 days…

*Walk on the treadmill or in your neighborhood

*Go for a jog/run

*Ride your bike

*Jump rope

*Do push up’s, sit up’s stretches and lunges

*Do an interval workout (run for 5 minutes, walk for 5 minutes, repeat)

*Swim laps

*Take a class at your local gym (spin class, dance class, aerobics)
