Whatever you do, do your work heartily, as for the Lord rather than for men… colossians three:twenty-three
The photo featured on this post is one of my favorites from the Belltown Throwdown at KO Crossfit. Nick Argueta led his wife in prayer before their final WOD for the day. He submitted the time to God and invited God into that moment. Nick could’ve gone into that WOD without praying and probably been okay. He and Monica would’ve probably both been safe, gotten a good workout and carried on their day. But Nick made sure God was there with them through the workout. He honored God by recognizing his need for God. He took a thing that isn’t exactly the most spiritual, and made it spiritual. He made his physical activity work for his spirit.
When was the last time you prayed before starting a WOD? (Besides trying to get through Karen and her 150 wall balls) What about before you left your driveway for work? Or shopping for groceries? God is not meant to be sidelined until we are ready to put Him in the game. He is the reason we are even on the field. God yearns for a relationship with us. He wants us to want Him in every facet in our lives. He doesn’t want to be unapproachable. He wants to engage in the things we love to do. Why? Because He created us to do them! He is the one who wired your interests and tastes. Why not celebrate those things in a way that honors God while spending quality time with Him?
