The new year is quickly approaching and many of us will set out to make some Healthy Lifestyle changes. Many make resolutions, I prefer goals but I’ll address that in another post.
Perhaps you would like to increase your energy level, drop a few pounds, read your Bible through in a year, improve your finances or maybe mend a relationship.
Being Healthy is a lot more than losing weight and exercising your body. It’s about creating Balance and Being Present. Life can bring about many distractions and its important to reflect and know what season you are in. Our INTENT should guide us towards a life that is Physically Fit, Mentally Fit and Spiritually Fit. To accomplish this we need to bring our lives under the covering of the Lord Jesus Christ. The Bible tells us “He knew you before you were knit together in your mother’s womb” Psalm 139:13. Yes, He is interested in your well-being…heart, soul and mind. He is interested in YOU and He will guide you in the way you should go if you SEEK Him first.
It’s important to have a quiet time. A time to reflect, listen and grow. When we take time to be present and in His presence, we are open to RECEIVE. We are attuned to the moment. It’s sad to see how disconnected we are in today’s culture. I personally am trying to shift my mindset to be more intentional in my own life. We were designed to be in community with Him and others. We don’t have to muddle through life on our own. In Proverbs 3:5-6 we are told “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.” He is waiting and willing to show us the way.
If we take time to get quiet, pray and meditate…God can and will reveal wonderful things to you! Here’s the great thing, we don’t have to be perfect, have it all together or go it alone. We just have to BE WILLING and TRUST Him. Our life does have a plan and a purpose! We may not always see things right away and it will not always be in our timing but KNOW that He has a plan and a purpose for your life…a Happy & Healthy Life.
As you take time over the next couple of days and begin making your plans for 2019, Be Intentional, Seek God and Listen for His Leading. Where is he directing you for this season? Perhaps its a season of rest or perhaps its a time to focus on your physical health or finances. It could be that new opportunities are opening up for you or a relationship will end or be strengthened. Trust Him…He really will guide you towards being THE HEALTHIEST VERSION OF YOU!
