When it comes to our health we know what we need to do to take care of our bodies. But—for some reason—often we don’t. We have so many excuses as to why that is. We’re busy with work. We’re tired. We’ll start tomorrow or next week or next month. We need to care for ourselves, though. Our lives depend on it.
Dear God, help us to remember that we are made in your image.
That alone is reason to care for ourselves and our bodies.
Inspire us to move forward with however small that first step may be,
as an act of gratitude for life and a way to honor your creation.
Get up and move today for at least five minutes.
