In the past I believed lifting weights was only for body builders or athletes, but not anymore! Health experts now encourage senior adults to build muscle by lifting light weights of one- two pounds. Increase in muscle builds strength, flexibility, stamina, and balance. Muscle around the bones cushions them in case of falls. Yes, middle agers we need to get "pumped up!"
There is another weight I want in my life. "For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal,
(2 Corinthians 4: 17-18 NKJ)."Have you ever lifted a weight of glory? Remember, the next time you are going through trials and are in "trouble up to your neck", your end results will be glory!
