Stay on the Path ~ Sunday Devotion
Stay on the path that the Lord your God has commanded you to follow. Then you will live long and prosperous lives in the land you are about to enter and occupy. Deuteronomy 5:33 (NLT)
How many times did I hand over my worries about my weight to the Lord only to pick them back up again? Have you done that? Desire to follow Him in every area of your life only to hesitate with one?
I’d toss out the magazines, dispose of the supplements, remove the apps, hide the scale, all with the intention to trust the Lord to show me how to care for my body. I’d be okay for a while until someone posted a transformation picture or a new diet they were going on, then I’d get distracted. Maybe that was the answer I was looking for. Surely, it would work for me. I could not stay on the path the Lord was commanding me to go on…until I did.
If I’d only known that following Him all along would lead to the best life. A peaceful and more confident life. Thankfully, I decided once and for all to obey His commands and let Him guide me.It’s easy to get distracted on your faith and fitness journey. Stay on your path.

It’s easy to get distracted when you’re walking along the path of your faith and fitness journey. There are so many competing ideas out there for how you can reach your health and fitness goals. Too often those approaches are not sustainable. They are created to set you up for failure. Why? To keep you coming back. They’re generic and don’t know you and your unique body.
God showed me, and He can show you too, how to honor my unique body. By integrating my faith and fitness, I learned a way to live that is sustainable. That has become my Faith and Fitness Framework™. It’s a faith-first approach to four pillars that are helping me and many women stay on the path to lasting health and functional fitness for our age and stage of life.
Stay on your path. Instead of chasing the latest quick fix or getting distracted by what others are doing, fix your eyes on Jesus. Honor your body so you can embrace your now and start living your best life. Only His path will lead to a long and happy life. A life that is fit and free!
Action Step: Are you on the path God has commanded you to follow? If so, be of good courage and stay on the path. If you’ve taken a detour, go back to Him. He’ll guide you to where you need to go.
