What does it mean to be spiritually healthy?
Did you know that you can be spiritually bankrupt? You can see it in a hurting teen. You can see it when someone feels lost and alone. You can see it in a struggling mother that feels like she has no purpose. I have been there before and it is not easy when you feel hopeless.
God knows what is ahead and what you need to make it through. All you have to do is have FAITH and BELIEVE what His Word says! That doesn’t mean you sit on the couch and “wait” for the clouds to part to hear from God.
Here is where I started when I decided to make God a priority in my life.
Get up early. 15 minutes before your alarm would normally go off. Grab your Bible and a comfortable spot where it’s quiet. Open the Bible and read at least one chapter a day. My church does one chapter a day and within one year you would have read the entire New Testament. I can post the list if someone would like in order to stay on track. As a women, I recommend that you read Proverbs 31 every day in addition to your one chapter. Even if you are not married, this is a GREAT EXAMPLE of what a GODLY WOMAN does!
Feed your spirit! We feed our flesh every day but EVEN more importantly, we should be giving our spirit some breakfast, lunch, and dinner! 2 Corinthians 15:44 says, “It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body.”
MODERN thinking tries to tell us who we are. That we should look and act a certain way. That morals and acting like a lady is old thinking. That our role models should be the latest Kardashian. BUT YOU are so much more!!!! YOU are beautiful! YOU are exactly the way GOD created you! You were created full of love and purpose. You are unique and not like the rest of the world. You were created for so much more.
ARE YOU ALLOWING YOURSELF TO DREAM AND BE USED?
If you are worrying daily about the stresses of life… how can you have any mental strength to allow yourself to dream and be used? You honestly can’t. You will be mentally drained. That is why God says to bring your worries to HIM. LEAVE THEM AT HIS FEET.
TRUST HIM! REALLY TRUST HIM! The minute I really laid all the cards down and said “I give up GOD! I have tried everything and it has blown up in my face every time. I have done it my way for 20 years and have nothing to show for it. I am going to follow you completely. I will do what you tell me to do. I will bless who you tell me to bless. I surrender all that I am. I trust you with everything!”
From that day forward, my life was never the same.
He picked me up from the floor and RESTORED ME! I am better now than I have ever been. I am better now than when I had an amazing career without God. I am better now than when I could purchase anything my little heart desired because without GOD nothing fills that void.
I pray that you will surrender your all to GOD. And I promise that HE will NOT leave you nor forsake you! YOU WILL HAVE PEACE. YOU WILL HAVE JOY LIKE YOU HAVE NEVER EXPERIENCED.
