Here we are! It's the middle of the challenge!

Do you need a HALF TIME HUDDLE?

It's that time of year when there is a chilly breeze through the air and the daylight is gone way too soon.  It's that time of year when hot chocolate and warm, snuggly pj's call my name much more loudly than my running shoes do. It's that time of year when friends and family gather around special foods.

Does Satan have the ball? Does he have you playing defense? Is he whispering little lies and discouragement in your ear?

I need that HALFTIME HUDDLE!  A little pep talk, motivation, encouragement, pick-me-up....

Let's all huddle in and talk sports' slogans.  Yes, sports' slogans.  As I was praying about what to write and asking The Lord to direct me, He led me to sports' slogans.

They are motivating.  They are just what I needed.

First, I went to the Adidas slogan: "Impossible Is Nothing."

"I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me." Phillipians 4:13

The impossible is nothing to Christ.  With Him ALL things are possible-- even helping us to get healthy and fit--even helping us through this holiday season--even helping us when we listen to Satan's discouragement.

Second, I went to the Nike slogan: "Just Do It."

"I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God through Christ Jesus." Phillipians 3:14

Just keep going.  Don't give in.  Pray and ask God to help you to press toward the mark.  Is it His will for you to be healthy?  Do you see the prize before you?  Do you see the better you?  Just do it! Be determined!

Third, I went to the Under Armour slogan: "Protect This House."

"What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost, which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's." I Corinthians 6:19-20

This is the most important one.  Remember WHY you are doing this. We are doing this to protect our house, to protect our temple for The Lord, to glorify God with our bodies.  The healthier we are, the better we can serve Him.

Now, yell CHRISTMAS CRUNCH as loud as you can, get that ball back from Satan, and stop his whispers of discouragement. The impossible is nothing! Just do it! Protect this house!  Get back on the offense and get that ball over the goal line! GO TEAM!

Crunching with you,

Rachel Smith
