This week I haven’t been feeling well but I’ve worked through it. Very often my asthma flares up and I have a bronchial cough. The treatment that my doctor immediately suggests to me is, rest and maybe an antibiotic. I have so much to do and promises that I’ve made. “I don’t have much time to give to sit down”. I’ve noticed that I haven’t been waking up praying like I usually do. I’ve been going through some changes at work. I’ve not been avoiding certain kinds of vibes in my personal space. I’ve not even worked out in the last 2 weeks. I’ve eaten whatever I wanted to and in the end I’m seeing that it’s all costing me something. My health, my peace, delayed purpose, and I’ve even gotten out of character!
Our health must be in tact! Spiritually and physically. I’ve mentioned it before but how we fuel our bodies is also a form of worship. I’ve been saying that I’ll consecrate but kept pushing it off. Giving people more time than I’ve given God. This too has cost me something. It’s caused me to be confused and make wrong decisions. I told the Lord that I would consecrate and do raw fruits and veggies only. In a result, yesterday the first meal that I ate, I couldn’t keep down. It was almost like God was saying to me, “don’t keep pushing me off” or “don’t keep rescheduling your appointment with me”. It dawns on me very often, “your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit” and “honor God with your body”. (1 Corinthians 6:19-21) Boy oh boy, people say God doesn’t speak to us…He truly did this week. Also, he dealt with me on fueling my soul with His word. If I don’t digest it often enough, He won’t have it to bring back to my memory for revelation of answers. Everything that I put into my body, is me saying “live off of this” or “thanks God for this body”. (1 Corinthians 10:31) This then had me to reflect what’s in my social media timelines, my music, etc. The Word even says to honor Him with your time.
Today is the first of the month. (I started singing Bone Thugs & Harmony’s “first Of of the month” LOL). What is it that you need to get back to? As your sister, I encourage you to get back to your first love. (Revelation 2:4) Be sure that your mental health is in tact and no one is driving you up a wall. Be more conscious of your words. Don’t say people, or anything, is making you sick. You built for this life. We may fall off but it’s always in you to get back to it. Remember your words create your atmosphere. Pay close attention to your soul, as it has the ability to impact your physical condition. If your body is aching then you won’t be able to move when God says too. You need your body to fulfill purpose. As long as we aren’t in good health, it becomes a domino effect. We get tired, miss deadlines, procrastinate, then doubt that we’re capable of doing something that’s apart of our destiny, then have feelings of inadequacy, have a mental pitty party with ourselves, settle for less, in result believe the lies of the enemy, and step out of God’s will. No more of that! I believe in you. Self check with me and get rid of what is a weight and get back to whatever it is that sets us free. Take care of yourself! What do you need to get back to? Heal yourself.
I will refresh the weary and satisfy the faint. – Jeremiah 31:25
