Hannah is a whole 11 years old, but she is taller than me; I’m 5’3!”
For fun, we took her shopping for some sandals. The ones she found were not what I expected. She liked the ones with sparkles and higher heels that I thought she should wear. She looks so much older! What happened to my baby?
To see who could pump the highest and maintain the longest was our goal!
Us old folks did pretty well! Hannah asked why she went faster and I replied that we were heavier.
Heavier, maybe, but we didn’t tire easily! Building up strength and momentum from walking the levee every evening for the past few weeks had paid off. Trudging the uneven ground trained all of our muscles.
It was a great feeling to realize the incredible adaptability build into our bodies by our Creator. If only we’d remember to tap into the potential!
All we had to do was get up and get moving and STAY committed! Muscle-building and endurance were the rewards allowing us to swing fast and high!
Tapping into our spiritual potential is an exercise all it’s own!
There is so much more to God that we can KNOW if we will only we will, first, make a daily effort to walk with Him! Once we’ve attained endurance He can trust, we can “swing” with Him to higher places!
