Connection

There is a connection between the mind, body, and spirit. Honestly, I believe it starts with mindset. The journey I have been on rings this to be true. It wasn’t until I started reading personal development books a few years ago did I realize the importance of mindset. I was never going to accomplish anything if I did not first believe in myself and love myself. For years I had been trying to please other people, trying to fit into what society deems as acceptable and beautiful. I have been on countless “diets” trying the next new thing and exercising like crazy and hated it. I was just trying to look good. And yes I got to a point where I looked good on the outside, but on the inside I was miserable. I would look in the mirror and would not be happy with what I saw. It got to a point I couldn’t maintain the lifestyle I had created for myself and I went down hill and gained most of the weight back. Then the cycle began again of me hating the way I looked and the person I saw in the mirror. I was nowhere near what society accepted as beautiful. And I was frustrated with myself and fed up! At this point I was not viewing my body as the storehouse of the Holy Spirit.

My view of myself has changed and I realize my importance in Christ. I want to have a healthy body because of Him and no one else! It starts with the mind, and then you need to take action on the body. Once I started going to therapy, I began to peel back the layers of shame and guilt I had placed on myself. I started working out in a way that was fun for me. It is now something I look forward to each day. I love exercise. An important aspect of healthy success is getting your body moving! I continue to learn to listen to my body by fueling it with what it needs and not what will cause it to suffer later. And also listening when my body needs to rest. This took awareness, action, time, and outside help to figure this out.

Spirit is tied into this as well. You must fuel your spirit by spending time with Jesus each day. Diving into the Word of God, journaling, getting your thoughts on paper, listening to God, praying, and surrounding yourself community. God’s voice is the one that matters, so take time to listen to him.

You are beautiful.

Look at yourself in the mirror. What do you see? I challenge you to say 5 things you like about yourself when you look in the mirror. You were created in God’s image. You are fearfully and wonderfully made. Walk in the confidence of who you are in Jesus!

“I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.” Psalm 139:14
