December 31st Devotional

Luke 17:33 “Whoever seeks to keep his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life will preserve it.” We must live yielded, surrendered lives according to His will, not our own. God grant us grace to make this a daily choice. In His love O:-) My sons keep me supplied in wood. A true...

Mike’s Story

Mike Hutchison’s Testimony – A Journey of Progression with a Personal Trainer I started working with Teresa Roberts March of 2013. My goals when I started were to improve flexibility, increase strength, and increase endurance. I have played golf for many years. I could tell I was losing freedom in my swing. I also did some hiking and would have trouble going over 2 miles. That was pretty much it for physical activity. Teresa did an assessment, evaluated me, and came up with a specific plan for me to begin the journey of improving my overall physical fitness. We started working doing cardio work as well as working with the various machines with weights at the Recreation Center in Galax. Teresa stressed the importance of stretching as I worked using my full range of motion with all the muscle groups. This really helped me as I struggled with very tight muscles when we started. Teresa had a lot of different stretches for me work on at the end of sessions as well. We continued to add more challenging movements as I improved my flexibility. Teresa is inspiring and keeps me motivated to work hard to improve. I started to see a radical change within weeks! When I play golf I experience a huge difference! The stretching and weight work has increased my core strength and mobility allowing me swing the...

Isaiah 61:10″I will rejoice greatly in the Lord, my soul will exult in my God; for He has clothed me with garments of salvation. HE has wrapped me in a robe of righteousness. As a bridegroom decks himself with a garland, and as a bride adorns herself with jewels.Allow the Messiah to dress you as prophesied in Isaiah. As you are beautifully adorned give Him all your adoration. HE IS SO WORTHY! In His love O:-) Sarah Grace helping Southern Pines decorate for...

Luke 2:25 “Now there was a man in Jerusalem called Simeon, who was righteous and devout. He was waiting for the consolation of Israel, and the Holy Spirit was upon him.”Simeon had held onto and waited for a promise from God his whole life. He was told he would not die til he saw the promised Messiah. He saw it fulfilled. He recognized Who Jesus was as a baby. May we believe the promises God has spoken to our hearts knowing it will happen. Our Messiah will be returning as King of Kings and Lord of Lords! In His love O:-) Christmas decor at the Depot, Dobson,...

A Christmas Message from “Masterpiece Fitness”

Christmas Season is upon us! We are bombarded with all kinds of goodies, rich foods, heavy hor d’oeuvres, and scrumptious meals….Need I say more? We must be very intentional to stay healthy during the holidays of Thanksgiving, Christmas, and the New Year. For many of us, it is one long, continuous indulgence. Come the first of January we have to–shall we say– balance the scales? I encourage you to stop before attending parties and feast and contemplate a plan. If not you will unintentionally consume an enormous amount of fat and calories. Do not stop your exercise. Read the November update on my website (www.masterpiecefitness.com) for benefits of cold weather exercise and make it a priority. Don’t allow physical activity to get pushed out of your busy life at this time. Make taking care of yourself a priority, not an after thought. I know from personal experience and from working in the health and fitness industry, I cannot treat people simply physically. We are made up of spirit, mind, and body. People who are spiritually healthy are much happier people, which make healthier people. In this writing I want to address the spiritual since this time of year means so much to so many spiritually. I begin every morning caring for myself spiritually. For me that means getting in the Presence of the Holy Spirit with the Words of...
