The Journey Begins From Within
By: Gayla Foster
Simply perishing from lack of knowledge , we dig our own graves with forks and knives. We have no clue that morning sluggishness and afternoon sleepiness are directly connected to bad eating habits we have established. Constantly feeling drained, many people stagger around with no energy or ability to concentrate. Our moods and emotions are up and down. It’s a vicious cycle. We are driven to use caffeine for crankiness, sugar for slumps and aspirin for aches. In your journey to elegant health you go forward…b y going back to the Bible!
In making the journey towards good health, follow reliable and dependable road markers from the Bible for rebuilding and maintaining a healthy lifestyle, not “diet”. God’s Word is so down-to-earth and provides us with an umbrella of protection for our physical well-being. We suffer unnecessarily with poor health because we do not follow the basic principles of health taught in the Bible. As a reference book, the Bible is the most valuable volume in the world today! As you adhere to God’s Word, know that you are on the right road and press patiently onward every day! And remember the shortest route to Good Health is God’s Natural Route! God’s way cannot be improved.
God has given specific instructions for the care and maintenance of our bodies, His vehicles, through which we accomplish His work. If the enemy can “wreck” our health and we are always “broken-down” or “in the shop”, wholehearted service to God is hindered. Through God’s simple plan of living, low blood sugar, Candida yeast, bladder and kidney infections, chronic fatigue, PMS and other ailments cannot survive in a body disciplined in right choices.
You can’t put a handful of dirt in your gas tank and expect it to run smoothly. It is important to put right foods in our body to:
This equips the body to better serve God in prayer and soul-winning.
Did you know that simple foods are the healthiest? These include grains, fruits, vegetables and herbs. On the other hand rich foods such as heavy meats, creams, fats and sweets are harmful to one’s overall health. Interestingly enough, the Bible refers to simple foods as Servant s’ food and rich foods as Kings’ food . (see Proverbs 23:3). Do not allow food or circumstances to control you! Don’t poison and punish yourself by making wrong choices!
Health is a journey. It may take a while to completely eliminate the problems you are experiencing, so allow yourself time. You can succeed if you change a little each week. Progress is the key- not perfection- especially when you are trying to change a life-long habit. Be convinced, you can feel better!
