But He answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that procedeth out of the mouth of God.Matthew 4:4
Our success in life depends on our diet. Often we focus on physical nutrition, putting great emphasis on it. Even if we don’t follow the guidelines that we know we should, we have the knowledge.
I mean everyone knows that if you want to be healthy, we must exercise and eat right, right?!
I’ve learned as a runner, your nutrition is super important. I have to know what upsets my stomach lest it mess with my digestion during a workout. I need to figure out what gives me energy so I can train at my best. Foods that make me tired, I must avoid in order to be alert enough to give each workout my best. Even when to eat must be taken into consideration.
Our physical health is dependent upon not just what we eat and when, but also how healthy our minds and souls are.
Our thoughts feed our hearts. We then act out of what we believe in our hearts.
Every runner knows that a good training plan doesn’t just consist of what we ingest through our mouths, but what happens in between our ears. It’s not uncommon to hear that running is 80% mental, and that is not a lie.
A manual comes with everything we buy to let us know how it works. As a Christian, we will not grow without proper nutrition, and this comes from God’s Word, the manual with which God gave us so we know how we function properly.
The next two weeks I’ll be sharing how my training and latest race went because it was a huge lesson for me that “You are what you eat.” So stay tuned! There is not a podcast episode for this week as I will be covering this topic in the next two episodes…
In the meantime, Happy Running!
