A lot of people have asked me how is it that I’m in such good shape? They ask me how many times I work out in a week. Or sometimes I get questions like,‘Why exactly do you work out and what do you do when you work out?’
This post is to give you a good balance of what it’s like to work out in a healthy way and not allowing yourself to get caught up in the vanity of always wanting to look good. I’ll give you my stand point of working out based on my own experience and observations. So let’s get started shall we? :)So what’s my stand point about working out and staying fit? Well working out regularly definitely has some great benefits to our physical bodies. If you’re an athlete or someone who is physically active, you can agree with me on this one that when you work out you feel more energized, healthy and obviously fit.There are a lot of reason why people work out:
Some people work out because they need to be in shape for sports.
Some people workout because their health is declining and their doctor’s recommend them to stay active.
Others work out on a regular basis because it’s part of their daily healthy routine.
lastly some people workout because it’s their addiction.
I’m not gonna talk about all the different reasons, but what I’m gonna tackle today is that as a Christian, how is working out beneficial to us not just physically but spiritually?The Bible says:

for while bodily training is of some value, godliness is of value in every way, as it holds promise for the present life and also for the life to come - 1timothy 4:8

We can’t deny the fact that working out is indeed a valuable discipline to our daily lives. It’s not a matter of being vain or conceited. Just because someone is working out and staying fit doesn’t mean that person is conceited. But for us as Christians the main purpose and reason why we should work out and stay healthy is not necessarily just for the purpose of improving the quality of our bodies so that other people will notice and admire us, but instead we work out and stay healthy to improve our physical health so that we will possess more physical energy to devote to physical duties and spiritual goals. Such as prayer, fasting, worship, evangelism, work, school etc.
Brothers and Sisters, change your mind and attitude towards working out. 
We need to Work out so that we can Live out the Gospel of Christ.If you’re outta shape and you try to run 5 miles, I bet you, you won’t last. It’s the same thing for us, don’t expect yourself to have all the energy that you need in order to accomplish work, school, or even ministry work if you don’t sleep well, eat right and get enough dose of exercise. We are ought to be responsible as to how we take care of our bodies. Just as much as we feed food to our soul by reading God’s word, we need to feed our bodies and take care of it in order to sustain ourselves through out the day.
And lastly It’s important that we remember to take care of our bodies because it’s a gift from God. So many people in different parts of the world don’t have the access to the things that we have and yet we take it for granted. Let’s challenge ourselves and enjoy God’s creation. Take a quick walk or go for a run. If you have arms and legs use them and don’t waste.
 At the end of the day, we are to honor God with our bodies and we can’t just let our bodies deteriorate and neglect it. Always strive for healthiness not just physically but spiritually as well.

Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your body.” - 1 Corinthians 6:19-20

I woke up this morning feeling a little weird. How come I’m still in bed. I looked at my clock and it says ‘7:30am’. Usually by that time I’m already up and getting ready for breakfast and for my day. But then it hit me, I’m not there anymore, I’m already here.. back home.
It’s been almost 10 hours ever since I landed here in California coming home from my missions trip in Cuba. I can’t believe it’s already over. Time went by so fast. The events and memories that took place for the past 7 days are still vividly fresh in my head and in my heart. Gosh how I loved those people in Cuba. How I admire their heart and hunger for God. 
God completely rocked my world when I was there. The way how I would look at worship, devotion, prayer, surrender, hunger, desperation, joy, celebration will never be the same again. Heck my christian walk will never be the same ever again. I wish I can tell you all the details as to how my trip went, but I’m gonna have to be selfish this time, at least for now. Allow me to just soak and ponder in everything that just happened. But for now, this post shall do.
To close this post I wanna share a short convo I had with a girl who was the same age as me, who was also an upcoming worship leader and passionate about evangelism. Here’s how it went:

Mark: So why pursue God and give your life to Him instead of pursuing the things of this world?
Migdalia: He is better than anything in this world. He is all I’ve got. He is my everything. I wouldn’t trade Him for anything else. He is so good and He makes me happy.

Everytime I remember her response, I wanna cry. It was convicting and challenging at the same time. And I said to myself,  'Man, I want that. I want that kind of hunger and contentment. I want to be able to confidently say God is all I want and is all I will ever need in this world.'
This is just one, I have tons of these moments when I was there. And I can’t wait to share it with you all. Have a blessed week folks.

God,

I don’t deserve an ounce or a fraction of all the things that You’ve given me and I am forever in awe of Your unfailing love and grateful of Your amazing grace. Truly You are more than enough for me.
