Today marks the close of the 2012 Olympic games from London. There have been some amazing moments of triumph with so many talented athletes. Several have openly thanked God for there achievements and you can sense their humble and awe-filled expression of gratitude and love. Imagine the journey they have made and the emotion they must feel in victory and in defeat. They have pushed their physical bodies and human spirits to the limit to fulfill a dream and honor God, country and their families. 

You may not have the talent or physical strength and fitness of an Olympic athlete. Still, your body is home to the Holy Spirit. Whether young or old, tall or small, physically fit or physically challenged you have a unique God given gift or ability that only you possess. Honor and serve the Lord from where you are.  Use your body, voice, mind, and heart to serve and honor Him as only you can. 

“You surely know that your body is a temple where the Holy Spirit lives. The Spirit is in you and is a gift from God. You are no longer your own. God paid a great price for you. So use your body to honor God.” 1 Corinthian 6:19-20
