Ready for a great start to 2017?
The direction and speed of your forward progress is closely related to the strength of your spirit. This core aspect of wellness proves critical for victorious living! If you are like me, you are ready to grow, excel and live with more energy and power than ever before!
Okay then…it is time for a quick check-up! Let’s take a look at two main organs.
Your heart pumps life to the entire body. Whatever your heart is filled with, that is what will be running through your veins. This year, your heart can flow freely with love and power! Now is the time to eliminate these emotional plaques that clog your spiritual arteries:
• Unforgiveness (The Big Blockage)
You can unclog by exercising fun and laughter. Adopt a consistent lifestyle of thanksgiving in the midst of any life situation. Ingest spiritual super food with a daily dose of the living Word of God. Practice this new regime and you are on the path to a healthy, strong heart!
Be of good courage, and he shall strengthen your heart,
all ye that hope in the Lord. – Psalm 31:24
Your mind is the control center of your life. Where it wanders, you will go. Often times, a mind without direction will create a chaotic state. Top it off with frustration and it can provoke you into depression, anxiety, bipolar and other mental disorders. This is not what God desires for you.
For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power,
and of love, and of a sound mind. – 2 Timothy 1:7
For your mind renewal, here are a few tips that can also help when feeling overwhelmed:
- Shift your focus away from the distractions of the world. Take a break from social media, television, news and drama. Trust that God will take care of all things in your life, for your good and in His perfect timing.
- Enjoy a daily mental break to relax, reflect and be still. Take deep breaths. Ahhhh, quiet and calmness. Meditation and prayer are great methods to ease your mind.
- Re-direct your mind to positive, enriching thoughts. Think on things that bring joy and peace. Go to your “happy place” and speak empowering words to yourself.
Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace,
whose mind is stayed on thee:
because he trusteth in thee. – Isaiah 26:3
You cannot control the outside world. However, you can control what your mind consumes and what your heart retains. Spiritual wellness is essential to your successful destiny.
Take great care in how you nourish it this year!
