Are You Really Healthy?


My week has been good but there has been something that has been nagging at the back of my mind. The issue I have been dealing with is health! If you don’t know, I am passionate about living a healthy lifestyle. I believe that as God has given us divine healing we have a play a part in that. How can you ask God to heal you of diabetes when you are eating junk every single day?? How can you ask God to make you stronger and fitter when you don’t exercise at all?? It really doesn’t work like that. You have a part to play in your healing. God has a plan for you to live a long time but how will you reach that age by sitting on the couch all day and not exercising and eating junk all of your life??? I am not advocating self reliance instead I am just trying to bring common sense to you. The wonderful thing about this is, you can start at where you are at. God has a plan for you no matter what size you are! Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. God loves you just the way you are.

Anyway, let me get on with my story. I had a nagging thought about health. Before the year ended I decided to step it up. I started training harder which has been hard. I have been running more and in general exercising more. I am excited because I am seeing results. I am running faster and training harder. My general fitness has increased but this week I realized I didn’t have balance. I realized that as much as cut down on eating junk I was not being strict. My exercise will all be for nothing if I don’t eat healthy! My eating correctly and exercising will all be for nothing if I don’t have a healthy mindset!! Everything else needs to fall in place, exercise, eating right, healthy thinking and so on. That is the full picture. Health is not just eating right and it not just about exercise and it is not just about thinking right!! I need to be doing all those things to be a fully healthy person.

My goal in this post was to let you in on one of my passions but to also challenge you concerning your health. I heard something last year that challenged me and still does. The statement is, “How can you expect God to give you the responsibility of looking after His “body” which is the church when you can’t even look after your own body?”                                                                                                                                                                           I pray you have been challenged to take responsibility of your health. God desires you to be more serious about your health. We as the “light of the world” have the responsibility of being the example! We should be teaching the world how to live a healthy lifestyle because we have the Spirit of God living in us.

Will you be that light and example the world needs? Will you take responsibility for your health?

Thoughts, Beliefs and Words….


I have been going to Bible School and I have been learning a lot but I am the kind of person who doesn’t like gathering information for the sake of it. I understand I am accountable for what I hear and I will be judged for what I do with what I have heard! There needs to be action that follows the revelation I get, and I have been getting a lot of it! So what I have planned to do is share some of the lessons I have learned at Bible School so I don’t forget. I also hope God will speak to you through these lessons. The first point that I got sounds so simple and it is but it is also so profound!

We talk wrong because we think wrong! If you are thinking right you will have peace and joy and peace. Right thinking comes first.
This is how important right thinking is, If you think right you will believe right and speak right and if you think wrong you will believe wrong and speak wrong! It is that simple!!!!

So with that in mind, what are you thinking about? It has been estimated that we have about  50 000 thoughts a day! If we have so many thoughts a day are they positive or negative?
We need to train ourselves to think right because as we do we will believe right and then speak right!

Action point – This here is the time where I put action to the word. Feel free to take the challenge. Wisdom is not about what you know but about what you do with what you know.
We have been called to renew our mind with the Word of God. The guaranteed way of thinking right is to renew our mind in the word of God.

Will you join me in taking this action step? Let us get deeper into the word. Think about what you think about. Let us allow the word to renew our minds. In the next few days ask God to show you where you have been missing it in the way you think. Let us work on the way we think then when we are done we will move on to another principle.

God bless
