When someone says they are healthy, most people automatically think they mean they eat healthy and exercise. To be truly healthy, it begins with faith. Spiritual health is the root of all other aspects of health. If we begin each day in prayer and constant communication with God, then we are able to maintain other areas of our life. If you are struggling with anxiety or depression, ask God to help you with each individual struggle, and help you find the peace within the situation. Ask God to help you feel His presence and find comfort in the journey. If you are working on healthier eating habits, ask God to take away the junk food cravings. Ask for His guidance in making better food choices. If you are developing a daily exercise routine, ask God to help keep you motivated and for energy to press on. If you are struggling with a habit or circumstance, ask God to keep you focused on the goal and for His wisdom in your decision making. These may seem like simplistic prayers to you, but the power behind the faith that comes with those prayers is life changing spiritual muscle!
“But you, when you pray, go into your room, and when you have shut the door, pray to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly.” MATTHEW 6:6
“Pray without ceasing, in everything giving thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” 1 THESSALONIANS 5:17-18
God is with us.
