Back to Basics: Knowing what gets your heart pumpin’ & spirit movin’.

‘For in him we live and move and have our being’ – Acts 17:28 NIV

What moves me? Literally a great rhythm with lyrics that make you want to tear down obstacles & take on the world. Music has an awesome power! Whether it’s a melody soothing my spirit or a beat that thumps deep down in my soul, it has a way of moving me toward my goal. And as Nike put it, helps me to find my greatness!

Link love: Inspired by my fellow FitFluential Ambassador Fitness Cheerleader I’ve compiled my top 5 workout songs that seriously get my heart pumpin…

1. Walkin’ on Water – Lecrae
2. Don’t Wait – Addison Road
3. World Hold On – Bob Sinclair
4. Shake, Break, Bounce – Chemical brothers
5. No Te Cambio – Funky

So back to the basics, What get’s your spirit movin’? What drives you to be inspired toward finding your “Sweet Spot” as Max Lucado refers to it. Use this fun little acronym S.T.O.R.Y. to find your spirit movin’ potential.
