Have you had your dose of spiritual medicine today?
What is that you may ask… Medicine for your spirit is Gods word.
“Keep my commands in your heart, for they will prolong your life many years and bring you peace and prosperity.” (Proverbs 3:1-2 NIV)
If you are like me, and you don’t like taking filling yourself full of meds. Then you look for natural ways to receive relief. But also not having the money to afford everything that is out there, one could go broke trying to try stuff just to see if it works.
Funny thing I came across something that is totally free, and I can rely on it everyday.
Gods word is powerful and if you trust and believe in it; it can perform miracles. That of all he things you believe, just like the medicine a doctor tells you to take; you want to believe its going to work. Why not do the same when it comes to God.
Do everything else that you have to do, but don’t forget that The Lord is with you and he is more powerful than anything created.
Your physical health is influenced by your spiritual health. If your spirit is down, so will your physical. You can be happy for awhile without being physical, but soon it takes a toll on you. Both need to be used together, how many times have you read or been told that exercising can lift your spirits [change your mood.]
“A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones.”
Now that winter is creeping away, warmer days are ahead of us. Get back outside and take a nice walk [short or long] and enjoy the sunshine and blue skies. When you change you thinking process, you when realize that God created us strong and we can with stand extremes.
If you have some favorite scriptures, read them when you first wake up or before you start your day. See how you feel afterwards, allow Gods word to encourage you to smile, to laugh, to do what you can. It doesn’t have to be a lot, but enough to make you feel you’ve accomplished something in the day.
Also remember that being tired is NOT being lazy, know that also God knows we need rest. From tasks that make us tired, that demand our energy and concerns that cause stress.
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.” Matthew 11:28-29, NIV
New Living Translation (NLT)
20 My child, pay attention to what I say.
Listen carefully to my words.
21 Don’t lose sight of them.
Let them penetrate deep into your heart,
22 for they bring life to those who find them,
and healing to their whole body.
