My husband, Jonny, has a friend, Michael, who’s this top-notch athlete. He says he’s always training. For what?
Another of Jonny’s friends, Corey, also a fine jock, says he’s training for adversity.
Hoping that adversity might never come but we still have to store ourselves up.
Don’t let your soul get depleted. Make sure you’re prayed up. Don’t wait until a major crisis to make contact with your spirit. Start now. Practice storing a warehouse of faith so that when you need it, you’ll have it there. Save up for the famine the way Joseph in the Bible said to save up.
Listen, you might go through life without ever needing friends. Unlikely, however. So make sure you nurture your friends because they will be there for you at 3 A.M. (Remember that your spouse is also a friend.)
The body. As in your body. Proven fact: people who do sports heal faster. What are you waiting for? Train your body to prevent catastrophe.
Don’t leave your mind behind. Don’t be a mental loafer. One of my daughters, Amalia, tries to write down something she learns each day. I learned today that Polyfill is the fluffy batting inside a blanket. I thought it was Chlorophyll—which is the pigment in plants that captures the light energy required for photosynthesis. Ha!
Soul, heart, body, mind: The Big Four. Keep them finely-tuned like a harp.
Tool for Tuesday: Train for life.
