A kulimbitsa thupi kuti Akhala

Moyo wanga, Ine ndapita mwa nyengo pamene ine ndakhala zimenezo ntchito. Ndili ku sukulu ya sekondale Ndimangofuna kukhala buff mokwanira kuti tisangalatse atsikana (ndalephera). Mu miyezi pamaso pa ukwati wanga ine ndinali kuyesera kugwira ntchito kokasangalala wanga gombe thupi. Masiku ano, Ine ndikungoyesera kuonetsetsa ndimakhala kale makumi wanga. zolinga zanga pa zaka, koma chimene sanasinthe ndi mmene akamupandukira zolinga amene ali.

Mwina ndinu mwachibadwa chinachititsa kuti achite-kufuula kuti anzanga amene aika photo ndi mavidiyo a maphunziro Malamulo awo tsiku lililonse. Koma ngati muli ngati ine, zolinga zanu kupita mmwamba ndi pansi monga mwana pa trampoline ndi. Kodi ngati zotsatira za ntchito yako zinatha kalekale, Komabe? Kodi inu kukhala chinachititsa?

Mwakhama Ntchito limapindula

Pa Zima Olympic mwezi watha ine ndinali mantha monga Ndinangoyang'ana mphezi bobsledders mwamsanga ndipo highflying snowboarders. Ndinachita chidwi ndi ulemu othamanga, koma ndinali kwambiri chidwi pamene ine ndinaganiza za maphunziro kulangidwa ayenera kuti anatengedwa kuti adzafike.

Kumapeto kwa chochitika chilichonse pamene mpikisanowo wopambana anaima pa podiums wopambana wa, ndi kumwetulira pa nkhope zawo ndi mendulo tikupumula pa zifuwa zawo, iwo anali kukolola ubwino wa maphunziro awo. Koma malinga ndi Baibulo, pali mtundu wapamwamba wa maphunziro osati chifukwa thupi maphunziro ndisapenye zachabe, koma chifukwa iwo okha.

Ngati inu munayamba mwadzifunsapo chimene Mulungu amaganizira za workouts wanu, pano pali yankho: Iye amaganiza kuti ali opindulitsa, koma okha, mtengo. Kotero pamene inu akuthamanga, kuchita akufa pochita, ndi kunyamula zitsulo, mpumulo kudziwa kuti chinthu chabwino kuchita. Kusamalira thupi lanu mu mawonekedwe abwino n'zabwino, ngakhale nzeru, koma okha tifika inu mpaka.

Izi n'zimene mtumwi Paulo anauza Timoteyo:

"Koma ndiribe kanthu kochita ndi nthano yosayenerera ndipo mopusa. m'malo, kuphunzitsa nokha mu umulungu, maphunziro a thupi kuli ndi phindu zochepa, koma chipembedzo n'kopindulitsa m'zonse, popeza chikhala nalo lonjezano la moyo uno ndi moyo likudzalo." (1 Timothy 4:7-8)

Ife tikhoza n'cigwagwa maganizo a Paulo pa ntchito monga chonchi: Kuchita masewera olimbitsa thupi ndi abwino, koma maphunziro auzimu bwino. Ndipo ndicho chifukwa mphamvu ndi osakhalitsa, pamene chipembedzo wosatha. Pamene Paulo akunena za "maphunziro kwa umulungu" Ine ndikuganiza iye kumatanthauza kuchita zinthu zimene inu mwauzimu. Zikutanthauza kuchita zinthu zimene kungakuthandizeni Mulungu. Mwina kukweza Baibulo ndi ngakhale zochepa zofunika kuposa kukweza kulemera kwake, koma kuja kumatanthauza kulephera pa kuposa thanzi labwino.

Muyaya kuposa mphindi

Ife tonse tikudziwa kuti pamene chinachake limapitirira ndi yabwino. Palibe amene akugula galimoto podziwa izo kuphwanya mwezi wotsatira. Ife kulibwino kugula chinthu chimene chimakhala kanthawi, chifukwa ife kwambiri ndi ndalama ndi. Koma ngati ife kotero masamu ndi zochita za magalimoto, koposa kotani masamu tiyenera za moyo wathu?

Kodi mukuganiza za kunthawi yanu? choonadi, tiyenera kuganiza za izo kuposa timachita. Palibe funso kuti tonsefe moyo wosatha; Funso ndi chimene adzakhala ngati. Choncho tiyenera ndalama tsopano, podziwa kuti zotsatira zake sizidzatha.

Izi ziyenera zimakhudzira zimene timaganizira za tsiku ndi tsiku. Sports zabwino, koma iwo sali chilichonse. mphamvu zanu mukhoza mu koleji, koma sadzapeza inu Kumwamba. Muyenera kusamalira thupi lanu, koma tili ndi zofunika kusamalira. Kodi mumakhala moyo wanu?

Kuphunzitsa

Mulungu kumatithandiza kuti amange "minofu zauzimu" pamene ife apite ya uchimo ndi kukatenga kugwira Yesu. Ndiyeno iye akutumiza kuti ochitira masewera a. Iye chisomo watipatsa Mawu ake, anthu ake, ngakhale khutu lake. Choncho tiyeni tiwerenge, chiyanjano, ndipo pempherani. Othamanga kuphunzitsa zovuta chifukwa chofuna kukonzekera masewera kapena machesi inawatsogolera. Iwo amafuna kuti athe kupikisana pa mlingo mkulu.

Tonsefe mayesero zauzimu, mayesero, ndi nkhondo tsiku ndi tsiku. Kodi Mwakonzekera? Coasting sachiza othamanga ndi izo sizigwira ntchito kwa Akhristu. kuwerenga Baibulo chaka chatha sikokwanira kuti zikuthandizeni chaka chino. Ife okha bwinobwino mpikisano uwu mwa chisomo cha Mulungu, koma iye athu mpikisano mwa zolimbitsa thupi lathu zauzimu.

Ndizothandiza kwa ine kukumbukira kuti pamene ubwino wa maphunziro thupi okha, ubwino wa maphunziro auzimu ndi malire. Masiku amenewo pamene ine samaona ngati akupemphera kapena kuwerenga Mawu a Mulungu, Ine ndikhoza hii kuti phindu si yaing'ono kapena zosakhalitsa. Iwo osati andithandize sabata yamawa, zikuthandizani ine mu moyo wotsatira. Ndicho zolinga zonse ndikufunika.

    Trip thank you for this. For the past week I’ve been fearing death. I don’t know why but I do. I really needed to be reminded that heaven is the best thing ever and this earth won’t get me anything.

  2. GregBrownanayankha

    Thanks for this bit of encouragement! It is easy for some of us to become obsessed with eating healthy and exercising. But do you spend more time planning your meals and at the gym, than in times of prayer and study of the Word? It’s easy to have your priorities messed up, even on the mission field.

    Blessings in Christ to all!

  3. Mattanayankha

    I agree. The spiritual fitness/exercise is FAR more important than any physical fitness/exercise, but I ALSO believe that both can be done at the same time as well. I know there is a fine line between working out for yourself and working out for God, but there is a difference (believe it or not). Working out for God, physically, includes the spiritual element. For instance, when you have a workout partner, you two talk periodically when you workout together. Imagine if, when you two talk, it isn’t about a pump, your muscles, etc. m'malo, when you talk, speak from your heart, and have fellowship with one another in Christ. The physical working out may be a common interest for those in the gym, but if you add the spiritual aspect, your fitness with go to an unearthly level (right where we are supposed to be), spreading the love of Christ. Akolose 3:17

    It amazes me how The Lord speaks in so many different ways. I was wrestling with the thought ofI should work out todaybut was feeling like I fail at this area over and over again and somewhat feel it can be wasted time if it’s not something continuous in my life. Reading this blog was a reminder from God that He>I and when I focus on Him and train spiritually, I feel so much better and trust that it’s not time wasted. I think staying healthy is important but I know that digging into His word and seeking him is well worth every second of our life. Time with God is never wasted. Thanks for being obedient to what Christ has called you to share. I needed this. God bless You and your family Trip!

  5. Donnellanayankha

    Man this is awesome stuff, I love what you stand for. I love learning from your teachings in your music and now your book “The Life Good”.

    THANK YOU!

  6. MrsRondoanayankha

    Izi zinali zozizwitsa. The two things I hope to gain and retain this year and yet I struggle with the one that is far more important than the other. zikomo Ulendo, your timely blogs have been very inspiring, and they constantly point me back to Superstar.

  7. Tee-boyanayankha

    Bro this is what I needed. I’ve been struggling and fighting with the spirit for the last couple of days. Just forgot to pray, read my bible, and even go to church. This is a wake up call. From now on I’m a changed man in Christ. I even thought God will n longer listen to me because of my ungodly life. Jesus died on the cross for me and I know I’m always welcome in his presence and he is just and faithful to forgive me from my sins.
    Bro I thank God for your life and the great work he he’s doing through you. God bless you for accepting his works.
    Stay blessed my brother.

  8. LoganLonganayankha

    I think this is very relevant in our culture today. How often do you see people at the gym for hours? ulendo, I work at the YMCA and I see the same people day in and day out for at least an hour of working out, but generally more than that. And it gets you thinking, there’s probably a lot of Christians that come into my Y (We’re the largest in Indiana), so how many of them are spending 1-2 hours a day engaging themselves in spiritual activity? This is relevant to me because it’s the call out I needed to get back in shape physically and spiritually. Thank you brother.

    Mulungu adalitse,

    Hey,

    This is a word-for-a-season. In a culture there are so many social pressures to look good and for guys to be fit and ‘buff’, we can get so caught up in what we think we should be like, in what others tell us we need to look like.

    Saying that God thinks that workouts have limited value is spot on, compared to the eternity we can spend with God.

    This reminds me of David’s story when he is anointed king by Samuel 1 Samuel 16). God says in verse 7, “People look at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.

    Bless you,

    Josh

    Really encouraging Trip! Anything that gets me closer to God truly brings me happiness and strengthen me! So thank you man. I really appreciate you. I’ll keep praying for you :)

  11. Liamanayankha

    Trip I am big into working out, but I have to remind myself to read this post every once in a while. Helps keep me focused on what really matters

  12. Briananayankha

    Wow as a fellow blogger I love the content of this. I am a workout buff but it comes easier than sometimes finding the time to pick up my Word daily. I then wonder why I don’t stand up to trials like I should. Awesome reminder. zikomo Ulendo

  13. Njokianayankha

    This is really encouraging and it has been something that’s been on my mind. I don’t read my Bible everyday, in fact, I could go for 2 kapena 3 days without getting in touch with God’s Wordbut now I know that I’m denying myself eternal benefits. It means so much to me that what I read today will help me next week or next month. I can’t rely on what I did last year, or last weekI’m working out for my eternity!!
    Godliness has value for ALL THINGS holding promise for both the present life and the life to come!
    Zikomo Ulendo Lee, for letting God work through youImma read the Word more! :)

  14. Ngosaanayankha

    that was awesome message Trip, I have always wondered whether working out is wrong or not or simply unnecessary. Your analysis clears the air on that one. Thanx, keep BRAGING BRO!!
