A Workout ukuthi Lihlala

Kukho konke ukuphila kwami, Ngiye besibhekene zonyaka lapho bengilokhu ngempela ngashukumiseleka ukuba zifezeke. Ngesikhathi ngisafunda esikoleni esiphakeme I nje ngifuna ukuba buff ngokwanele ukuba amantombazane sibahlabe umxhwele (I kuhlulekile). Ezinyangeni ngaphambi komshado wami bengizama ukuba asebenze iholidi lami langemva komshado beach body. Kulezi zinsuku, Ngizama nje ukuze uqiniseke Ngihlala esedlule eko yami. nezisusa zami ziye zashintsha phakathi namakhulu iminyaka, kodwa lokho akuzange kushintshwe indlela edlulayo labo izisusa kukhona.

Mhlawumbe nawe uku ngokwemvelo ushukumiseleka ukuba zifezeke-zimemeza abangani bami ngubani post pics namavidiyo ukuqeqeshwa lwemithi yabo usuku ngalunye. Kodwa uma ufana nami, nezisusa zakho uhambe up and down like a kid on a trampoline. Kuthiwani uma imiphumela evela umsebenzi wakho ngaphandle lasted phakade, Nokho? Ubungakujabulela yini ashukumiseleke kakhudlwana?

Zikhandle usuthela

Phakathi Winter Olympics ngenyanga eyedlule ngineminyaka ukumesaba njengoba bengibuka umbani bobsledders esheshayo futhi snowboarders highflying. Kwangihlaba umxhwele ubuhle babo wezemidlalo, kodwa Ngahlabeka umxhwele nakakhulu lapho ngicabanga ngesimo ukuqeqeshwa lokujeziselwa kumelwe ukuba kuthathwe ukuze uthole khona.

Ekupheleni izinkundla ngasinye lapho abasubathi onqobayo wema phezu podiums the winner sika, nge ukumamatheka ebusweni babo futhi izindondo uhlezi ezifubeni zazo, they babevuna abanye izinzuzo zokuqeqeshwa kwabo. Kodwa ngokweBhayibheli, kukhona a uhlobo ophakeme ukuqeqeshwa hhayi ngoba ukuqeqeshwa ngokomzimba kuyize, kodwa ngoba kungagcini.

Uma uke wazibuza yini uNkulunkulu ayicabangayo mayelana ukusebenzisa kwakho, nakhu impendulo: Ucabanga ukuthi unalo ezuzisayo, kodwa kungagcini, Inani. Ngakho, nakuba usebenzisa, ukwenza akungenele ukuviliyela kokuzivikela, futhi nokuphakamisa izinsimbi, baphumule ngokwazi ukuthi kungcono izinto ezinhle ukuba nenze. Ukugcina umzimba wakho isesimweni esihle kuyabongeka-ngisho ehlakaniphile kodwa isazoba kuwe kude kangaka.

Yilokhu Umphostoli UPawulu wathi kuThimothewu:

"Kodwa ngalutho nge izinganekwane nezinkolelo-wokungahloniphi kanye silly. Kunalokho, ukuqeqesha uzicabange ukukhonza uNkulunkulu langenhlonipho, ekuqeqesheni umzimba has a inzuzo elinganiselwe, kepha ukumesaba uNkulunkulu kunenzuzo ngazo zonke izindlela, njengoba kungase kubonise ukuthi izithembiso semphilo yamanje kanye nezalo empilweni ezayo." (1 Timothy 4:7-8)

Asikwazanga ngamafuphi sikaPawulu nisebenzela like this: Ukuqeqesha umzimba omuhle, kodwa ukuqeqeshwa ngokomoya kungcono. Futhi lokho ngoba amandla kungokwesikhashana, ngenkathi ukumesaba uNkulunkulu ungowaphakade. Lapho uPawulu ukhuluma 'ukuqeqeshwa ngoba sokumesaba uNkulunkulu "Ngicabanga ukuthi kusho ukwenza izinto ezenza wena ngokomoya. Kusho kokuhileleka kunoma yiluphi imisebenzi ezenza wena kokuhlonipha uNkulunkulu more. Mhlawumbe ephakamisa amaBhayibheli ethu kuba esingaphansi ngisho kwaleso efiselekayo kuka ephakamisa isisindo, kodwa azizwe sengathi angimnaki kusho miss out on ezingaphezu kuka nempilo enhle.

Forever ungcono kunomuntu Moment

Sonke siyazi ukuthi uma into ithatha isikhathi eside akuve abafiseleka ngokwengeziwe. Akekho uthenga imoto azi it uzoba ngivule ngenyanga elandelayo. Singathanda kunalokho ukuthenga into ehlala isikhashana, ngoba sizongena okuningi utshalomali. Kodwa uma siyakucela ngakho ibalwa ne izinqumo mayelana nezimoto, kufanele kakhulu kangakanani-ibalwa kube ngemiphefumulo yethu?

Kukangaki ngengunaphakade yakho? Iqiniso liwukuthi, kufanele sicabange ngalo kunathi. Ayikho umbuzo ukuthi sonke bayophila phakade; umbuzo yilokho ukuthi kube khona like. Ngakho kufanele sikwenze ezitshaliwe manje, azi ukuthi imiphumela ngeke iphele.

Lokhu kufanele usithinte lokho esigxilisa on usuku nosuku. Ezemidlalo zinhle, kodwa bengekho konke. ezikhwepheni zakho kungenza ukuba uhlale ekolishi, kodwa ngeke uthole ukukuvumela ukuthi ungene eZulwini. Kufanele fuza hle cophelela of umzimba wakho, kodwa sinokuthile ezinesisindo ukuze anakekele. Impilo ungathi yinhle kangakanani umphefumulo wakho?

How To Qeqesha

UNkulunkulu usenza sikwazi ukwakha "kwemisipha ngokomoya" lapho senza ukuyidlulisa isono futhi ngiyothatha ubamba uJesu. Futhi ke wathumela kithi ejimini. Uthi ngomusa usinike izwi lakhe, abantu bakhe, ngisho indlebe yakhe. Ngakho ake sifunde, nenhlanganyelo, futhi nithandaze. Athletes ukuqeqesha kanzima ngoba bafuna ukuba alungiselele umdlalo noma nomdlalo phambi kwabo. Bafuna ukuba bakwazi ukuncintisana ezingeni eliphezulu.

Sonke ngeke abhekane novivinyo okungokomoya, izinhlolo, futhi izimpi kwansuku. Ingabe ukulungele? Ukugudla akusebenzi kubagijimi futhi ngeke buphumelele amaKristu. Ukufunda iBhayibheli ngonyaka odlule akwanele ukuba akusekele kulo nyaka. Sizokwenza alenze ngokusebenzisa le marathon ngomusa kaNkulunkulu, kodwa kusilungiselela emncintiswaneni ukuvivinya umzimba wethu ongokomoya.

Akuve eziwusizo kimi ukukhumbula ukuthi nakuba izinzuzo zokuqeqeshwa ngokomzimba zilinganiselwe, abanye izinzuzo zokuqeqeshwa engokomoya angenamkhawulo. Ngalezo zinsuku lapho angazi sizizwe sifuna ukuthandaza noma ngokufunda iZwi likaNkulunkulu, Angikwazi ngizikhumbuze ukuthi inzuzo akuyona encane noma okwesikhashana. Ngeke nje ukungisiza ngesonto elizayo, kuyokusiza nami empilweni ezayo. Yilokho bonke isisusa ngidinga.

    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. GregBrownPhendula

    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. MattPhendula

    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, njll. Kunalokho, 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. Kolose 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. Ngangidinga lokhu. God bless You and your family Trip!

  5. DonnellPhendula

    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 Good Life”.

    THANK YOU!

  6. MrsRondoPhendula

    This was awesome. 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. Siyabonga Trip, your timely blogs have been very inspiring, and they constantly point me back to Superstar.

  7. Tee-boyPhendula

    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. LoganLongPhendula

    I think this is very relevant in our culture today. How often do you see people at the gym for hours? Trip, 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.

    inkosi ikubusise,
    Logan Long

    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

  10. MannyRuizPhendula

    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. LiamPhendula

    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. BrianPhendula

    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. Siyabonga Trip

  13. NjokiPhendula

    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 noma 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!
    Siyabonga Trip Lee, for letting God work through youImma read the Word more! :)

  14. NgosaPhendula

    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!!
