Of Some Value
by Ryan Krzykowski
Winter is tough. At least it’s tough on me. The combination of lousy weather and plentiful food makes it really difficult not to put on a few extra pounds during the December-March season. Not the biggest problem in the world, but kind of irritating, and it doesn’t seem to matter a whole lot how much I try to maintain healthy habits.
One factor that’s worked in my favor in this battle is my enjoyment of running. I can hit the road if the weather’s OK, or jump on a treadmill and bang out 3-6 miles with no problem. I really do enjoy it. The only problem is that with everything else going on in life (work, kids, taxes, etc.) it can be hard to find the time to get the exercise.
It’s to the point that even finding the time to work out can get stressful — I’ve had to be intentional to carve out and schedule time because I feel like I need that physical training. It’s almost like the benefit of the exercise is offset by the stress of squeezing it into my life.
Then I few weeks ago, these words popped into my head:
For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come. – 1 Timothy 4:8
It dawned on me that while I had worked hard, perhaps too hard, to include physical training into my weekly plans, I had not given the same type of attention to my spiritual health. The reality is that people’s lives are busy and fast-paced. For coaches, this is perhaps even more true, and it’s helpful to have a couple things:
- a tool that provides guidance and help with spiritual growth
- a supportive network/community
One tool that we coaches can now utilize as we walk this path is called WeCoach. WeCoach is not officially affiliated with CFC, but we share a heart to see coaches live out their purpose faithfully. Below is the information that WeCoach encouraged us to share with our audience…I would encourage you to give it a look.
WeCoach is a global community of coaches and spouses, regardless of sport, gender, nationality or level of competition. Through this community, you’ll be able to share life with coaches and their spouses from around the U.S. and around the world.
The WeCoach membership uses a mobile app as the tool to connect our community and it is now available! You can download it from iTunes and GooglePlay.
