Mind over Body

This past weekend I competed in the Branson 70.3 Ironman.  It was easily the toughest race I have been involved in thus far.  The hills in Branson just about did me in more than once.  But to cross the finish line and enjoy the wonderful feeling of accomplishment and victory, after months of training, made the pain quickly vanish from my memory. 

The day was very much one of "mind over body".  The body says no, but the mind says go.  I find this also true in my daily walk.  Many times my body or flesh tries to determine the course I should take in life, but the Lord directs my path through the Spirit living inside of me.  I have a choice each day what voice I will listen to, I will choice the Lord's.

Oh what a day it will be when I finally cross the final finish line and hear the words, "Well done thy good and faithful servant".

Romans 8:6, "For the mind set on the flesh is death, but the mind set on the Spirit is life and peace".

I needed this today. The Spirit just used these words to push me in the right direction as I was just sitting here at my desk struggling with a certain decision.

Thank you

What you posted made a bunch of sense. But, what about this?

what if you were to write a killer headline? I ain't saying your content isn't good., however suppose you added something that grabbed people's attention? I mean Mind over Body | Counseling 1820
is kinda plain. You should glance at Yahoo's
front page and see how they create post titles to
grab people interested. You might add a related video or a pic or two to
get people excited about everything've got to say.
In my opinion, it could bring your blog a little bit more interesting.

Can I simply say what a comfort to uncover a person that actually knows what they're talking about over the internet.
You definitely know how to bring a problem to light and make it important.
More people really need to look at this and understand this side
of your story. I was surprised you aren't more popular given that you
definitely have the gift.
