Mind/Body/Spirit II

>> Thursday, August 18, 2011


Is your body a reliable vehicle? Is it healthy? The scriptures say to treat our bodies with honor. That means nutrition, hydration, movement and rest. Rest is a big one for many of us because we do not like to sleep and we deprive ourselves of rest thinking we will be more productive but that is untrue. (1st Corinthians 6:19&20, Proverbs 23:7, Proverbs 15:13, Proverbs 16).

Your soul is a tenant in your body. Are you a good steward and property management or are you a slum lord? Is your soul housed in impurity and pollutants or righteousness and healthiness?

Your heart is within your body. How are you treating it? What is in your heart expresses what is important to you? Paul Pears says our heart is a think tank. and it reveals a lot about who you are.

: There was a conference of medical doctors who were discussing the heart as a think tank in link with the brain. There was a debate among the doctors. One doctor came up to the podium and told this story: She had a patient who was 6 years old who had a heart transplant from a ten year old girl who was murdered. The killer was never found. The 6 year old girl started having vivid nightmares and during the day describe a man who murdered her. The parents took her to her doctor and the local police. The little girl was able to describe the 10 year old's neighbor's height, conversations before the murder, the place and weapon and other details. The neighbor was confronted by police and he confessed to the murder of the 10 year old girl.
What would your heart say about you?

Hebrews 3:12-15 speaks about not having a hard heart. Our hearts are always speaking to us to do the right thing. We can prevent spiritual atherosclerosis. Don't stuff your feeling. Pull it up from the root, the same way you do weeds or it will grow back. The speaker, Candice says she has "self induced labor pains" where she looks at a sappy movie or listens to sappy music to "shed tears" and "get it all out".

Your soul is a hidden discovery, Ecclesiastics 3:10-11. We should all be prepared to give an account to how we used our lives for good. God gave us our souls, the one spiritual thing we came into the world with, and he said "Use it well". We will have to return it. Hopefully in good condition. A little worn but in good condition. We can focus on improving the mind and the body yet forget and neglect the spirit. Your soul is the one eternal thing you have. How are you taking care of it?

Many people will say, "I got distracted by wealth and power", "I had hatred because of this person", "It's this person's fault why I am this way and did what I did", "I lived in the here and the now of earthly reasoning and knowledge"......and "somewhere along the way, I lost it and I was not able to get it back." Let's do well to take care of our Mind/Body/and Spirit!

"We are not human being having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience." This was the theme of the July 30th Woman's Conference held at George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia.

Candice (Speaker)

Marcia and Kay (Speakers) "Love Your Neighbor".

Classes on "No More Regrets", "Spiritual Detoxing"
"Resilience Training" and more.

Instructor for Zumba Class
of 600 women

Judges for Open Mic

The opening was a Female New York City Comedian who was very funny. I especially enjoyed her Top Ten Women's list. Then there was a dance number to Beyonce's "Get Me Bodied". Candice Started the day with Mind/Soul/Body. She read from John 5:1 and asked us the same question Jesus asked the man who was ill. "Do you want to get well?" She said sometimes we can be at the source of healing and yet not reach out or make a deliberate effort. And so we never receive healing. (John 5:1-14)

When you travel through life, you need a map to show you clearly where you are going, you need a safe vehicle for transportation and you need fuel to get you there. The mind is your map, the vehicle is your body and your emotions is your fuel.

If you scribble over the map, would you be able to see which way you should go? Some of us have our minds scribed with worry and fogginess causing confusion and blocking us from going where we want to go. We need a clear mind that is at peace. We need accurate vision to where we want to arrive and organization of mind for efficiency. (Continuation on Body and Spirit in part II).
