When someone says they are healthy …. most people automatically think they mean they eat healthy and exercise. But to be truly healthy; it begins with faith. Spiritual health is the root of all other aspects of health. If we begin each day in prayer and in constant communication with God …. then we are able to maintain other areas of our life. If you are working on healthier eating habits; ask God to take away the junk food cravings. Ask for His guidance in making better food choices ….
If you are developing a daily exercise routine …. ask God to help keep you motivated; and for energy to press on …..
If you are struggling with a habit or circumstance …. ask God to take control; and for Him to help you feel worthy …..
So often we become upset with ourselves during these struggles; and we can lose our sense of self worth. Never forget that you are God’s child …. and God values and loves all of us unconditionally. He is waiting for you to surrender and ask Him for His help …. in all areas of life.
Ask Him to help you overcome the temptations to keep you focused on the goal; and for His wisdom in your decision making. These may seem like simplistic prayers to you … but the power behind the faith that comes with those prayers is life changing spiritual muscle!
“My son, pay attention to what I say; listen closely to my words. Do not let them out of your sight, keep them within your heart; for they are life to those who find them and health to a man’s whole body.”
“Pray without ceasing, in everything giving thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.”
1 THESSALONIANS 5:17-18
God is with us ……
