Faith and Fitness!

Posted by Kira Brown on

Strengthening your body is just as important as strengthening your soul. When you work on both aspects of your being simultaneously, you get even greater results. When you engage in fitness, the distractions of the day fall away, allowing you to rest your mind and connect with God. You are edifying the vessel He so lovingly created while also forging a deeper connection with Him spiritually. Showing your faith through your comfortable and versatile River Jordan FaithWear products is an element that can make a difference in the blending of these concepts.

There are so many options for incorporating faith into your fitness journey. You can listen to a faith-based podcast, pray through the duration of your workout, or set aside time to pray before/after your workout. These methods can be strengthened by incorporating your faith into your activewear. You are wearing a beautiful reminder of why you started your faith and your fitness journeys. Setting your intentions on Him in any form will make anything you do even more powerful. 

The path that offers the most growth is never the easiest. It’s easy to become too comfortable both in our faith and in our fitness. Pushing yourself to be better than yesterday can be a healthy practice and yield lasting results. Work on fitness because you love it; open your communication with God while you work out because you love Him. Check out these examples of believers professing their faith through their activewear to get you motivated to do the same:

Faith and fitness in the Bible:

Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one receives the prize? So run that you may obtain it. Every athlete exercises self-control in all things. They do it to receive a perishable wreath, but we an imperishable. So I do not run aimlessly; I do not box as one beating the air. But I discipline my body and keep it under control, lest after preaching to others I myself should be disqualified.
1 Corinthians 9:24-27

For the moment all discipline seems painful rather than pleasant, but later it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it. Therefore lift your drooping hands and strengthen your weak knees,
Hebrews 12:11-12

For this very reason, make every effort to supplement your faith with virtue, and virtue with knowledge, and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with steadfastness, and steadfastness with godliness,
2 Peter 1:5-6
