What if eating healthy food, getting off the couch, going outside, and moving a bit isn’t just about living longer?
What if God knew every one of your days before one of them came to be? What if He determines the number of your days?
What if self-care isn’t just about being more emotionally stable? What if learning and mental exercise isn’t just about being smarter?
What if we work to be physically, mentally, and emotionally healthy not so we can live longer but so we live better? So we can do good? So we can do what God has called us to do?
What if we choose to do things to be healthier so we can help others, feed the hungry, clothe the naked, and care for widows and orphans without feeling worn out, overwhelmed, and burnt out?
What if it’s not all about us? What if we are alive not serve ourselves but to serve others and to glorify God?
What if what the Lord your God asks of you is to fear the Lord your god by walking in all his ways, to love him, and to worship the Lord your God with all your heart and all your soul?
What if being physically, mentally, and emotionally healthier starts with being spiritually healthy?
What if being spiritually healthy helps us be mentally, physically, and emotionally healthier?
What if what is required of us really is to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?
Just my thoughts tonight.
