God was no fool when He knit you together in your mother's womb. He has intricately designed your being to encompass mental, spiritual and physical housing. The condition of your spirit and mind has direct effects, positively and negatively, on your physical body. I had experienced this very clearly as of late, so it comes as no surprise that God wants to use that to speak a clear message to you today.

I've gotta confession. And I'm not sure if you're ready for it, but if you're thinking I'm 'perfect' and 'have it all together', Sister, you're wrong! *Caution: Listening may cause you to want to unsubscribe, so listen at your own risk.* But the Bible encourages us, "Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working." ~James 5:16 so that's what I'm doing!

"No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it." Hebrews 12:11 It is through self-discipline and God's loving discipline that we cultivate a life that is thriving spiritually, mentally and physically. Your life is a product of your habits. Let's build the discipline it takes to create habits that lead to healthy, vibrant and joyful life.

In order to fully create lasting changes in your health you must get to a place of peace. Without peace you're stuck with dictatorship and constant degradation of your value, worth and character. Lasting change cannot come from a place of discord, as that is only temporary and fleeting as a motivator. The real motivation comes from within, finding your value and worth in Christ, not in your jean size. Making peace with yourself, God and your health journey DOES NOT mean you're giving up.

"Come to me, all who are weary and heavy laden, and I will give you rest." Matthew 11:28 Are we truly trusting God with our health, or continuing the rat race of striving, pushing, restricting, punishing, defeating ourselves? That's not how God intended for you to go through life. It's time to trust Him. In all things. Including your health and body.

In this interview episode Kristen Ekiss shares her story of what started as a 'drink to relax' turned into a nightly habit that was soon hard to break. Wine had begun to soothe her emotionally and physically and instead of turning to God, she was seeking comfort in the glass. Her kids began to notice and what can seem nonchalant and laughable on the outside, can actually be a symptom of a much deeper need and cry for help and coping mechanism for stress and anxiety.
