Five of Five

3 John 1:2 “Dear friend, I pray that you may enjoy good health and that all may go well with you, even as your soul is getting along well.” (NIV)

Do you want a healthy life? Then you need to Eat, and you need to Move.

#3. Care: We need to care for our bodies. Care for your skin. Did you know that soap is a miracle product? Just try it out. It is not about being wealthy or not being wealthy. Some people are just not hygienic they do not care enough about their bodies. And sadly, they stink, and people cannot get close to them. The key thing is, just have a bath. Take care of your skin. Take care of your body. Is that too much to ask? Brush your teeth, floss, and get rid of all the food stuck between your teeth. Care for your body. I am not necessarily saying you must indulge in expensive beauty products or skin care routines. However, if you are given to that, God bless you. But you do not need all that to care for yourself and to care for your skin.

#4. Sleep: There was a time in my life that I used to feel guilty about sleeping. At the time, I used to sleep for three to four hours a day max. But I became wiser after reading a lot of medical facts. I said to myself, ‘Look, do not kill yourself, and do not truncate your life. Sleep!’ Just sleep! Get yourself a good bed, a soft pillow, or a firm one if that is your preference. Then just push back and sleep. I know some people say the medically recommended sleep time is seven hours, some say eight, and some say nine hours is what we need. The key is to sleep until you are rested. You may not have the liberty of that many hours to sleep until you are rested because you need to get to work at a certain time. But you can go to bed earlier. Find the time to sleep, maximize your weekends, and sleep until you are rested. Let your body know what it feels like to actually sleep.

#5. Repeat: Eat. Move. Care. Sleep. And Repeat. 3 John 1:2Dear friend, I hope all is well with you and that you are as healthy in body as you are strong in spirit.” God wants you to be physically healthy as much as He wants you to be spiritually healthy. And it is because you cannot accomplish all that He wants for you and your life without your body being in top shape. It is just not going to happen. The metamorphosis you want needs a good strong body. Guess what? The Father created our bodies. Jesus died for our bodies. The Holy Spirit lives in our bodies, that is if you are a child of God. God expects us to manage and take care of our bodies.

You know God created you. You know Jesus loves you and died for you. But you need the Holy Spirit to live in you. That only happens when you commit your life to Jesus Christ, and you can sort that out today. Just say to Him, Jesus I surrender my life to You. Holy Spirit fill me.

Prayer: Father, I commit to being more deliberate about eating, moving caring, and sleeping. Please help me, in Jesus Mighty Name. Amen!
