The Spiritual Muscle


The spiritual muscle,

Must be used every day,

To lift His Name up,

When we work or play.


A muscle can get relaxed,

And lose the strength it had.

Instead of a joyful heart,

It can get bitter or sad.


Without our heart muscles,

Our life would surely end.

Our spiritual muscle gets strong,

With Jesus as our friend.


Our weight training starts,

In the morning when we arise,

As we read His Holy Word,

To become strong and wise.


A muscle without strength,

Has no where it can go.

It can be lost in the storms,

As we are tossed to and fro.


The muscle that is fed,

Will be strengthened by His grace.

You will represent your Master,

And others will see His face.


TRW 9-15-16






Isaiah 40:31

But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

Our strength needs to be renewed every day that we live. This can best be done by reading and studying the Word of God. When we have times of trouble, we have scripture that we can cling to give us the strength to not only survive but to thrive in this life. All of the great people in the Bible had times of great trials. They had times that they felt they could not go on, but they held onto their faith. Their faith gave them the strength to go on.
