It was Friday, but Praise God!, Sunday came! (Pastor Tom) Another Easter has passed, but today, this very day, is a new beginning! No matter what yesterday was, no matter what YOU were, today is a new beginning! Through one horrific, compassionate, undeserved sacrifice, we have been given a brand new life in Christ. It’s a free gift; all we have to do is accept it. None of us will ever be “worthy” of this gift, but God loves us so much that He still gives it to us. Embrace what God has done for you, embrace a love like you will never see or feel elsewhere.
Pray for Jean
In His light,

“Take your everyday, ordinary life — your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life — and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him.”(Romans 12:1 MSG)
The Daniel Plan integrates that which we tend to separate: food, friends, fitness, focus, and faith. Tackling the five essentials together actually makes them easier.
The Bible says to “take your everyday, ordinary life — your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life — and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him” (Romans 12:1 MSG).
In prayerful movements, our faith and fitness connect and strengthen one another, reminding us that in God, “we live and move and have our being” (Acts 17:28 NIV). He is the giver of life and breath.
When you take a walk, think of what it means to walk with God. When you get up to take a break from sitting, make a mental list of your blessings, or pray for the people in your home or workplace. These prayerful movements will help you focus your everyday activities on God and what he has done for you through the Daniel Plan.
