God is using you to speak to those who love him but may have a hard time loving themselves. Through your words, you act as a coach who both builds up their athlete and also provides helpful feedback at just the right time. I love the balance of the encouragement and tough love.

Through a series of events and life experiences this faith and fitness devotional came to be. That small voice whispering to us can finally be heard. It is good to rest and it is also good to move.

Just as you articulate goals for yourself in your career, you should do the same with your fitness and your faith.
While training for a half or full marathon, runners typically follow a plan. It begins small with shorter runs, but gradually builds in intensity and endurance as runs get longer. A huge part of training, though, is about being consistent.
