To put Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all. — Mission of the Greater Charlotte YMCA.
I walk by this mission statement almost every morning, but I just now noticed it, and thought isn’t that what Lent is all about – building “a healthy spirit, mind, and body” to do God’s work. Wherever you are in your Lenten discipline – on track, lagging behind, or fallen off the horse – my football coach would say, “Hubbell it is time to turn it up a notch.”
Take a look at your Lent so far with the goal being building a “healthy spirit, mind, and body” and ask yourself where can I pick up the pace. Easter will be here before you know it and the one thing is for certain it will arrive. The question is will you be ready and even if you have been slow getting out of the starting gate, it is time to pick up the pace.
Have a good weekend. Here in Charlotte the sun is finally out, the trees are starting to bud, and a few flowers are peeking out. All this tells me is I need to turn it up a notch. Have a good weekend.
