The past few years have presented intricate challenges and infinite blessings.

As we know, the two often accompany one another.

Intricate and infinite…the adjectives of faith.


Spiritual fitness cannot be maintained without them.

I use the word ‘maintain’ rather than ‘achieve’ because it’s a never-ending work out which manifests our best spiritual body.

What I call spiritual bodybuilding

Life is a beautiful workout. 

One that forces us off the couch whether we feel like it or not.

God will keep us fit. 

He is the ultimate personal trainer. Whispering in our ear – more, more. I want more from you. I want more for you.

Our tears the sweat of meeting His challenges.

It’s difficult to work out.

To lose the emotional weight we gain.

It requires a magnitude of faith-filled equipment and human trainers to assist in God’s work.

Enter Beliefnet a spiritual gym.

A place filled with the type of faith-filled abundance to provide a plethora of spiritual interval training.
