To transform your life you must begin with changing your mind. (Romans 12)
Did you know that we can and will only do what we have convinced ourselves we can do. In regard to keeping yourself healthy and fit have you done everything you can do to keep yourself healthy and fit? Seriously? Or has it been more of a self-gratification, I can and i will when i feel like it?
Have you taken advantage of the opportunity to be fit physically and spiritually but found that your emotional wellness was ready to be checked into the intensive care unit? Or found yourself physically and emotionally well but spiritually dry?
Very rarely do I reference Oprah; but it’s worth it this time around because she hit a strong point today in her mission to FINALLY combat her weight issues. What she has discovered is that it’s not weight or food that she has an issue with, it’s that she’s hungry not for food but for love and she turns to food to find her satisfaction. My question to you is, are you hungry?
At the point you realize that you can’t do it, or you feel like you’ve lost control; what do you turn to in order to regain control?
With everything that you have been able to do for yourself, with yourself and to yourself, is there any possibility that you can’t do everything BY yourself?
Take a moment and confront yourself and see if there is anything that might be keeping you from being the healthiest you CAN be. (Search me Lord, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. Psalm 139:23-24)
In order to be healthy, it must be in mind, body and spirit without the balance in all three areas, it’s simply unhealthy! You’ve decided to do an amazing thing for YOU and you can do it! This is the way, walk in it (Isaiah 30:21).
