Strength Training

Main Truth: “Keep actively watching and praying that you may not come into temptation; the spirit is willing, but the body is weak.” ‭‭MATTHEW‬ ‭26:41‬ ‭AMP‬‬

“I have to workout today,” I tell myself every morning. I get on my workout clothes, put on my shoes and then, one of my kids needs something. I help my kiddo, then say, “okay, I need to workout.”...then, my husband needs something. I help him, then attempt to workout. Then, my phone dings, a client I’m working on a project for needs something. I open my laptop to work on it.  Hours later, everything but my workout was accomplished. At this point, I have no desire to workout. Have you ever experienced this?


So who’s to blame? My kids, my husband, my client, myself? Honestly, that’s the wrong question. That question of “who’s to blame” will only lead me down a path of condemnation and frustration with myself and those who “got in my way”.


The real question is “what is to blame?” And the answer is, my lack of planning. See, my plan was very vague, “I need to workout”, but without a specific game plan to outline the steps of what I needed to do with a specific workout in mind, led to easy distractions.


Like in our attempts to workout to battle the bulge and fight for our health, our spiritual life is also battling something, a war of unseen distractions and powers.


Sister’s In The Spirit (SIS) wants to provide a game plan to prepare you for this war.  SIS is hosting their first workshop, Satan, Sin and Surrender, taught by our board member Janice Seal. Janice will be challenging our biblical worldview, expanding our understanding of the victory we have in Jesus and imploring us to adopt our true authority and our identities in Christ.


Janice states that “this teaching and these truths have brought her greater joy and quicker breakthroughs than anything she has ever encountered.”


This workshop can be part of your game plan as part of your “spiritual workout”. Reserve your seat for Satan, Sin and Surrender today!
