Spiritual Health

I've been on this health kick recently. I'm working out more, eating right, and overall, I feel great. Taking care of our bodies is so important. The apostle Paul actually tells us that as the Vessels for God's Spirit, we should take care of ourselves and honor God with our bodies.

Do you not know that you are God's temple and that God's Spirit dwells in you? If anyone destroys God's temple, God will destroy him. For God's temple is holy, and you are that temple. -1 Corinthians 3:16-17
I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect. -Romans 12:1-2

But here's the thing. As important as taking care of our physical selves is, our bodies are only temporary. They wear out, get old, and eventually die. Jess recently brought her kids into the office and they are sources of limitless energy. Her five year old even tried to prove to me she does run out of energy by running in circles for five minutes straight. I used to be like that. Not anymore. At only 25, I can already start to see how my body doesn't perform quite as well as it used to.

As I'm on this journey to improve my physical health, I'm trying my best to not neglect my spiritual health. I'm trying to set aside more time to read my Bible and journal. Because although my physical body will wear out and die, my spirit never will.

While my workouts bring more energy and increased satisfaction when I look in the mirror, spending time in prayer brings peace. Reading my Bible brings me closer to the Heart of God. That's an investment that will never let me down, and one well worth your time.
