I’ve never thought of the idea of having “spiritual muscles” but I think it is a good analogy. I really liked your talk Dr.Grant and the beautifully rugged mountains in the background as you were sharing on your video clip. Thank you for being ‘real’ and a good friend. God bless you and Kathy in His abundance of joy.
Hi Grant and Kathy – it’s +25 here in NZ at the moment! Just wanted to say Dave used yoiur video clip for starting the New Year (rubber band and being stretched) in his sermon last Sunday…very thought provoking and encouraging for people. Thank you!
Hi Grant, I had my spiritual muscle strenghtened when I went skiing on Easter Sunday thinking it would be a great time to have some one-on-one time with God on the mountain. God liked the idea and provided a hot sunny day so I was skiing in my jeans with a tee shirt and shell when God stranded me alone with Him on the Lake Louise chairlift for four hours at the end of the day. It grew dark and the temperature fell and hypothermia set in. I put my trust in God and after a long conversation He got me off the lift alive and provided an angel, – – dressed in a white ski suit and everything to give me a ride to my hotel. Then, without my asking, He had the lawyer, who had been on the chair behind me, arrange that two years later my wife and I could spend a week at the resort all expenses paid. God is good but one must always be careful when asking for special time with Him.
Wow Steve! That’s quite a ski story. Glad you survived.
My spiritual muscles and physical muscles are not on the same level: As my physical muscles are weaken because of age and infirmity: However to have spiritual muscles which must be exercised daily and used to it’s fullest like my physical muscles to make stronger: I remember an old friend say to me; Your body and spirit are equal and are the same, what you must do is liken to a pencil: The more you sharpen your pencil and use it the sharper it gets. I thank the analogy Dr. Mullen gave as an example to show it’s a tough battle to stay in shape and not give up with the hardships which we are faced daily and encouraged us to stay physically fit and as always and equally important to be spiritually fit even when we face the unknown!

Hi Dr. Grant and Kathy,
So true! I love the idea of looking at any unexpected circumstance and asking God, “What do you want to teach me in this?” This is something the Lord has been speaking to me about over this week. He is sovereign and ever-present! He is always wanting to walk with us and use life events to grow closer to Him. Rather than get bummed out and stressed, it’s SOOOO much more edifying to shrug your shoulders and say, “OK, Daddy. Where are we going now?” 🙂
Blessings to you both. Your regular videos and book “Emotionally Free” have been instrumental is my walk with Jesus!.Thank you!!!
