Spring Cleaning – Body and Soul

1 Comment

As summer fast approaches and the colors of a livened earth continue to appear, we may feel compelled to think more of our need for cleansing neglected homes, yards, and particularly, our health (perhaps from cold weather lethargy and holiday gluttony).  While reorganizing our houses and weeding the flower beds have significance – how much more value should be placed on improving our uniquely special human bodies? The recent celebration of Christ’s resurrection brings us hope that many of the undesired aspects of life – including physical issues and negative habits – can be thoroughly washed away when we gain a fresh springtime perspective and renewed motivation.

If you are feeling fatiqued from weight gain or circumstantial depression, be encouraged that rejuvenation is truly possible.  First, recognize that the most basic remedy for replenishing our diminished physical energy is to improve our diet habits by choosing foods that are natural and nutritious. Many believe this means eating virtually all raw vegetables and low fats.  Truthfully some vegetables really should be cooked to enhance their digestion and health benefits.  Additionally, including good fat sources is actually more essential than whole grains in the diet.  (Find more details under “Body Balance”.) Purposing to eat better will assist you in getting rebalanced with your body – inevitably leading to more mental clarity as well.  This will ultimately foster a greater ability to focus on seeking God’s guidance and making wise decisions in our daily routines and trials.

There is certainly no benefit to allowing by-gone stresses to hinder our determination for success this year.  We must understand the importance of finding confidence in ourselves through trust in the Lord’s strength to help us overcome our burdens.  He created us to be healthy and productive souls in this world – free of gloom and illness.  May we exercise the free will our Creator granted us to eat well and live the abundant existence that He intended.  In so doing, we will be enabled to become less absorbed in our own concerns and more productive in addressing the needs of others – all for the glory of the One who makes it all possible!

Timeless Truth:   “Our bodies are our gardens – our wills are our gardeners.”  ~William Shakespeare

One thought on “Spring Cleaning – Body and Soul

  1. Thank you for the encouragement to seek better diets and seek God’s will for our lives! It is true when we serve others we don’t have time to dwell on ourselves! Serving others gives one a sense of usefulness instead of feeling useless!
