What if the answer to your health issue was a simple practicality? What if it was a matter of being led into all truth in life in ways that would benefit your health as a whole? What if we don't get that instant healing when we were prayed over, does that mean we lack faith or won't get healed? How do we deal with this? Do we give up and embrace our sickness? I mean doesn't salvation mean, healing, wholeness and preservation? How exactly does that come to us?
I believe that signs, wonders and healing confirm the Gospel being preached. I believe that we will see instant healing and I believe at times we won't. What if we were healed one day, but then the next day went back out and indulged in addictions of food that don't benefit us and ate (insert most disgustingly unhealthy food of choice)_______, and then got ourselves sick again. I mean do we not remember that all things ARE lawful, but not all ARE beneficial?? Don't you think that God wants us to live in the beneficial things of life for our own benefit, not because it changes things between us and Him? Don't you think He is kind enough to teach us all things pertaining to life? Like leading us into truth regarding healthy eating choices so we can enjoy those benefits of good health? And even if we don't go down that path, there is no condemnation for sure. But I do believe our choices reap in whatever we have sown. Don't you?
I used to wonder how 'practicals' fit into the grace message. I detested 'practicals' because they were so heavily taught in my old church as a way to attain godliness and holiness. But what if we ditched all of that thinking, which doesn't line up with the gospel anyway, and we decided we wanted to learn some practical advice for life that will benefit us. A year ago or so, I was not able to even entertain the idea of practical life advice and I still don't seek it out heavily, unless I am ready to learn in an area of life that I want to see benefit me. I trust the Holy Spirit to teach me from the inside out, and I trust that He will encourage me through my brothers and sisters and inspire me into benefits through them as well. Sometimes, I do need a bit of nudging, lovingly of course from those I trust and know that love me. ;)
So today I am here to simply bring this up, cause I personally am very passionate about living in better health. I am very intrigued by learning about nutrition and love to talk about it. I certainly don't have all the answers, nor do I want to ever be legalistic about how I approach any area of my life. However, I do want to talk about what I am learning and I do want to encourage and help other people. I mean what if all it was for you today was a simple fix to an imbalance in nutrients you may have? Would you want to know about it? Anyway............ I have to say, I have seen my life being transformed from the inside out since grace came to me and I am so amazed and so thankful. I have also seen an insatiable hunger within me to live in a whole way. To experience vibrant health and vigor in life. I have seen many things fall away that were hindering me and I am thankful. Yet I still have unresolved health issues that I would like to see resolved. I also greatly desire to learn how to take care of my health and greatly desire to help others live in better health too. I feel, much like we want to get a good diet of grace, chew up the meat and spit out the bones, we want to do the same with our temples/bodies too. I notice when I am full of yummy nourishing grace teaching my spirit soars and I feel so satisfied. It's much like that when I nourish my physical body as well.
That all said, I just wanted to get it out there that I love to learn about health and I love to talk about it too, ( I think we all have areas in life that we can share beneficial things with others), and may start bringing it up a bit more on here, just in a broad way. But I pray today that God will bless your food to your body, nourish you and protect you and cause you to flourish in your health!! Grace and peace!!!
