1-Week Yoga Challenge: Day 5

“20 And God said, “Let the water teem with living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the vault of the sky.” 21 So God created the great creatures of the sea and every living thing with which the water teems and that moves about in it, according to their kinds, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. 22 God blessed them and said, “Be fruitful and increase in number and fill the water in the seas, and let the birds increase on the earth.” 23 And there was evening, and there was morning—the fifth day.” -Genesis 1:20-23

*Slight disclaimer: I started this journey on Monday, Oct. 8th, skipped the weekend, and continued with Day 5 on today (Monday, Oct. 15).

I really enjoyed todays yoga practice. I started off my morning with Jesus on my own and then shifted it towards Jesus with yoga. God’s timing is truly perfect. Caroline discussed surrendering quite a bit with our poses–over the weekend, I went to Village Creek Bible Camp (check out my first experience and second experience!) and surrendering was also emphasized. I love when things come full circle like this!

Caroline opened up to her viewers by telling us the Fifth Day of creation is her favorite of them all. She said creation witnesses creation when the animals are created purposefully after the vegetation and foundation of the earth. My favorite part was when she made reference to all 5 senses. God’s creations this far can now be seen, tasted, felt, heard, and smelled. Caroline ties in our yoga by using all of our senses to worship God. Not just using our sense of feeling right now, but using our ears to focus on His voice. One way I need to worship God better is through my sense of taste–because food is um, yum! I need to start using self-control and understanding what I’m tasting should be God’s fruitful creations and for His glorifying way of giving me energy. What sense needs improvement in your life?

Along with the 5 senses, she encouraged us to use the senses to experience God in a new way, a way we never have before. Maybe for you this means getting in nature more often and witnessing Gods wondrous creations with your eyes and ears, even nose. When thinking about it, I’ve used all of my senses to experience God, but taste is my most lacking sense.

I pray that m personal reflections of a simple video would encourage my readers to grow in their relationship with God.

Ask yourself today: am I growing?
