She girds herself with strength,
And strengthens her arms.
So...strength. Am I strong? I guess, emotionally I'm all right and my guns have some muscle. They also have that jiggly part on the bottom so I don't wave too enthusiastically :)
As women, I think, it is easy for us to take care of others and put ourselves last. I know I am completely guilty. I can't remember the last time that I exercised or really thought about my health. Not just 'do I need to drop some weight', but how is my heart? Is my body healthy physically, emotionally, mentally, spiritually? To answer those questions in order...no, ummm so-so, sure and could be better.
So how do we make sure we are strong? We need to take some time for ourselves. Exercise is so good for us physically and mentally, yet I know I never seem to have the time. I find the time to spend on pinterest and facebook though...weird. That goes back to the whole time management deal. Yeah, I need to work on that.
Put good foods, healthy foods into our bodies. Some protein for muscles and calcium and vitamin D for strong, healthy bones! Take vitamins. Drink lots of water. Get some sunshine!
Spend some time alone with God everyday. Nothing makes you feel stronger and ready to face the challenges of life like a solid relationship with Christ. Those are the moments that I am at peace. That is when I am refilled.
Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the Lord your God who goes with you. He will not leave you or forsake you. Deuteronomy 31:6
How great is that!
So, strengthen up ladies!
