Being health means a lot of different things and believe me there’s a million different aspects when it comes to being in complete health. Sure, we need to take care of our skin, hair, and body, the stuff that’s on the out and inside. Because yes, that stuff is really important. One thing I’ve also learned is that we also need to be healthy spiritually.
It’s so true, we often look as health as being some strength that comes from our physical appearance, but what about God’s portion? Now I’ve talked about Holy Habits on here before, so I again I’ve challenged myself to look at my spiritual health and consider how I’m going to win this race.
For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come.
1 Timothy 4:8
I think it’s very important to run, to jump, to leap, and dance, but everything that we do let God give us our ultimate health and strength. There were so many occasions in my soccer days where I would give every game to the Lord and He blessed me game in and game out. If I would get hurt; I would surrender it as God’s will. In the end, he never let me down because I continued to play up until college on a paid scholarship. I suppose it was my reward for being faithful to him.
So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.
1 Corinthians 10:31
And that’s exactly why I give my life to our Lord and Savior. In whatever I do, whether it’s a tough situation or one with a positive outcome, I pray God gives me the strength. Not the physical strength of course, but the strength that keeps my spirit uplifted.
In addition, I pray often, Micah and I do bible studies together, I attend church, I form part of a young adult group at church, and I talk to God above and beyond prayer. Now, where I fail is with consistency. It’s hard to continue the routine because after all we are human, we get caught up, we get tired, but God knows our intentions. If it’s for Him, He’ll never leaves us.
Dear friend, I pray that you may enjoy good health and that all may go well with you, even as your soul is getting along well.
3 John 1:2
It’s my hope for you, that you find God in everything that you do. It’s healthy and it’s a good thing. Again, I challenge you to create those Holy Habits. And do me a great favor, keep me accountable in my fight to cover myself with the Lord.
See you tomorrow as I wrap up Health Week. As always.
