Hello! This is the last post of a series called “You Can do Yoga” if you missed the other posts, check them out here:
At the end of this series, the last thing for you to think about is:
Go and do yoga!
I know I can have good intentions to do something and be willing, but when the time comes, I don’t always follow through with commitment. Sometimes fear holds me back or a lack of planning.
BUT, we don’t have to listen to the lies of fear anymore!
I’ve told myself these same lies we’ve covered, but here is an amazing promise from God:
John 8:32 (NLT)
And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.
And know that
Proverbs 23:7a (NKJV)
For as he thinks in his heart, so is he.
Don’t focus on the negatives or things that you can’t do. Believe that you are able, God is helping you, supplying you strength and energy. Remind yourself that you can do what you need to do, you can do all things through Christ who strengthens you!
- You CAN do yoga
- You CAN become healthier
- You CAN beat that habit, addiction, fear etc.
- You CAN make time for God
- You CAN overcome
- You CAN become stronger
- You CAN become the person God wants you to be
- You CAN get out of debt
- You CAN have an awesome marriage
- You CAN have victory over your injuries
We have to put in the work while fully relying and trusting God
The horse is prepared for the day of battle, but the victory belongs to the Lord
In other words, we put in all the work of training, preparation, planing, sacrificing, exercising, and we rely on the Lord because the battle is his, the win is his. We work as if it all relies on us, and pray like everything relies on God.
Don’t blame the way your life is going on: your circumstances, other people, current situations, your past, your feelings, or lies from satan.
You can choose to overcome the negativity, and live a happy, joyful, healthy life in complete surrender to God.
I hope you enjoyed this series!
